Must Have – Marc Albrighton (Leicester)
Burnley have already allowed 25 goals so far in 2018, which is more than any team in the competition except Fulham. They were trounced by West Ham to the tune of 4-2 on the weekend and have another tough matchup against Leicester City in Week 12. Marc Albrighton has scored 17 points per game over his last two contests and seems to have taken up a new role in the side. Albrighton has fired 35 crosses into the box in the last two weeks after racking up just 14 in his first eight games of the season.

Sleeper – Martin Dubravka (Newcastle)
Don’t sleep on Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubrovka at home against Bournemouth this weekend. Newcastle might be 17th on the table at the moment but they have allowed just 14 goals so far this season, the 2nd fewest of any team outside of the top nine. They have already kept four clean sheets and Dubravka is great value as the 8th highest priced GK on the slate.

Stay Away – Harry Kane (Totenham)
Kane has scored just six goals through 10 games so far this season, well down by his standards and has a tough matchup against Crystal Palace this weekend. Just one goal has been scored in each of the last five games between Tottenham and Crystal Palace, and Kane has scored in just one of those matches. Tottenham haven’t been the scoring powerhouse they were last season and we expect this game to be low scoring.
