Fantasy football tips: Game Week 16

What can you say about Silva?

The Manchester City technician is simply a magician and has seemingly upped his levels of mastery in recent weeks.

Silva has scored three times in his last two games and will fancy adding to that tally against Tottenham on Saturday evening.

2 Adrian – £2.9m

Adrian has replaced Hart

West Ham suddenly look an organised outfit again under David Moyes and his decision to drop Joe Hart for Adrian has been vindicated.

The Spaniard kept back to back clean sheets against Chelsea and Arsenal and collected a whopping 15 points in Game Week 15.

The Hammers travel to Stoke this weekend and with Adrian in between the sticks are looking far more sturdy.

3 Nicolas Otamendi – £6.5m

Otamendi has scored more goals than any other defender

The top goalscoring defender in the Premier League and an absolute points scoring machine.

Only Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah sit above Otamendi in the Dream Team player rankings after Otamendi registed 21 in total last week.

The Argentine is expensive but if he keeps scoring as well as his clean sheets he’s an absolute must have.

4 James Tarkowski – £4.6m

Tarkowski is Burnley’s most important player

Tarkowski and Burnley continue to defy all logic this season in actually mounting a challenge for a top four spot.

The Clarets are level on points with Tottenham and Liverpool and one above Arsenal, with their resolute defence the shining light for Sean Dyche.

Tarkowski is the highest scoring player outside the Premier League’s top six clubs and with the European football out of the equation for a while, he could be a real asset.

5 Riyad Mahrez – £5.3m

Riyad Mahrez is one big name on Arsenal's radar this winter

Mahrez is back to his best

Mahrez is beginning to show the kind of form that won him the PFA Player of the Year award back in 2015/16.

The Algerian is back to his brilliant best under Claude Puel, scoring in three of his last four as Leicester surge up the table.

Mahrez and co. face Crystal Palace on Saturday and will be looking to add to the four goals they smashed past Southampton in midweek.

6 Wayne Rooney – £3.7m

Rooney has scored seven in his last eight games

All of a sudden Everton look like a team again after Sam Allardyce’s arrival.

Big Sam has done exactly what the doctor ordered, tightening the Toffees up at the back and getting the best out of Wayne Rooney.

The former England captain scored two vital goals in Game Week 15 to earn them four points, and could very well continue his red-hot form against Swansea on Monday.

7 Son Heung-min – £5.3m

Son is the perfect foil to Harry Kane

In Son Spurs have a go to man if Harry Kane isn’t at the races.

The South Korean has cemented himself as one of the first names on the teamsheet in the last couple of months, outperforming the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

Son scored the equaliser when Spurs met Manchester City last season and he will fancy adding to his eight goals this season at the Etihad again on Saturday.
