Forwards

Studs

Harry Kane ($9,400)

With 58 points, Tottenham is on the precipice of the sixth spot, one point behind Wolves, which faces Chelsea on the final day. That means Kane and Tottenham have plenty to play for. Kane has found some form in the past few games, scoring a few goals, including two against Everton. He has scored 17 goals this season and will be keen to add to that tally.

Others to consider: Son Heung-Min ($9,600).

Values

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang ($8,200)

Aubameyang has been quite terrific as Arsenal’s on-field captain in the past few weeks. He scored a brace to take Arsenal to the final of the FA Cup. One week later, he has the chance to help Arsenal finish the Premier League strongly after a stumbling campaign. He has scored 20 goals this season and has an outside chance for the golden boot as well.


Midfielders

Studs

Kevin De Bruyne ($10,700)

Arguably the player of the season, De Bruyne has been in beast mode for Manchester City right through the season. He has not only added in tangible form to City, with 11 goals and 19 assists this season, but his precision, speed and nagging accuracy have opened up so many plays. And his free kicks have been a sight to behold. City faces Norwich at home for one last day of fun.

Values

Bruno Fernandes ($8,900)

This is another game with plenty at stake. After a poor performance against West Ham in the previous game, Manchester United will need to win to keep the team’s Champions League spot for next season. Fernandes will be key again from the middle of the field. His form after the restart has been hard to match, as is evidenced from his fantasy output of 21.8 DKFP per game, second among all players only to De Bruyne.

Others to consider: Mohamed Salah ($9,200)


Defenders

Studs

Trent Alexander-Arnold ($7,700)

Alexander-Arnold has probably been Liverpool’s player of the season. And his competition includes Mohamed Salah ($9,200) and Sadio Mane ($8,500). He added to his already impressive goal tally with another curling free kick made for the season highlight reel against Chelsea on a night when Liverpool lifted the title. Liverpool will also finish the season as the best defensive team and Alexander-Arnold has had no small part in that.

Values

Cesar Azpilicueta ($5,000)

Chelsea conceded five goals against Liverpool in the previous game. Although that was an EPL classic, Azpilicueta will not be pleased with his team’s defensive solidity. Wolves is not as big a threat as Liverpool but Chelsea will be keen to end with a clean sheet to ensure it doesn’t miss out on a spot in Europe’s premier competition next season.


Goalkeepers

Ederson ($6,000)

After Project Restart, City has been so dominant at home that Ederson has hardly been required to even make a save. Against relegated Norwich, that is plausibly going to continue. You would even be wrong to bet against Ederson making an assist, considering the manner with which he has set offensive targets on their way in the counter-attack.

Others to consider: Alisson ($5,900).
