2:45 p.m: Swansea City v. Tottenham
2:45 p.m: West Ham v. West Brom
2:45 p.m: Southampton v. Crystal Palace
3:00 p.m: Manchester City v. Watford
Shane Long, SOU v. CRY ($€7M) or Manolo Gabbiadini, SOU v. CRY (€6M): With Charlie Austin out for the next two months, it will be Long and Gabbiadini tasked with leading the Southampton line. Long has looked lively in two starts since Austin has been out, averaging over nine fantasy points per game. At home against Crystal Palace is a spot where either striker can succeed, and for the price it's worth keeping an eye out for starting lineups to confirm who's in.
Fernando Llorente, TOT at SWA (€4M):Harry Kane is dealing with an illness that could keep him out Tuesday, which could potentially give us a near-minimum priced striker on one of the biggest favorites on the slate. Llorente scored 15 goals in 33 appearances for Swansea last season, and he'd be champing at the bit to get a runout at his old stomping grounds.
Leroy Sane, MCI v. WAT (€9M): Sane could see added opportunities in the Manchester City attack with both Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne succumbing to injuries Sunday. He flirts with double-digit points when he's in the starting lineup, and paired with a nice matchup at home against Watford, he's in a position where he could turn up with a big score.
Erik Lamela, TOT at SWA (€6M): Lamela could benefit from the busy holiday fixtures and potential squad rotation looming. He's featured off the bench for limited minutes over the last three games, but if he gets starters minutes he's in a great place to exceed value in a good matchup.
Lee Chung-Yong, CRY at SOU (€3M): Lee came on late in Sunday's draw with Manchester City, and he may be in line for a spot start as Palace are dealing with multiple injuries. If it's not Lee, there's a good chance we'll see some min-priced players emerge, and anytime you can plug someone in at €3M it opens up a ton of salary to spend up on the big names.
Eliaquim Mangala, MCI v. WAT (€7M): Mangala has topped 11 fantasy points in two of his last three starts, and with fixtures coming in hot and heavy he should continue to start over the next several weeks. He serves as a nice alternative at over half the cost of teammate Nicolas Otamendi (€15M).
Jeremy Pied, SOU v. CRY (€3M): Pied is a player I've been looking forward to using once he gets another start, and with fixture congestion at its peak, getting one against Crystal Palace isn't out of the question. He scored 13.25 points in his last start, which would smash value at €3M if he's able to replicate that performance.
John Stones, MCI v. WAT (€3M): Stones was back on the bench on New Year's Eve after a six-week absence. It's not too far fetched to think he starts Tuesday given the potential for squad rotation, and if he does he stands out as one of the best values in the player pool, as he was regularly hitting close to 15 fantasy points per game when healthy.
Fraser Forster, SOU v. CRY (€6M) or Alex McCarthy, SOU v. CRY (€6M): McCarthy gave Forster a breather Saturday and he came away with a clean sheet at Old Trafford. Forster could return to the starting XI on Tuesday, and with both priced the same all we have to do is check starting lineups an hour before kickoff to confirm which goalkeeper to lock in. Crystal Palace at home is a spot where either one could produce a serviceable score for €6M.
