During the season our regular feature will detail whose value is rising and falling.

UP

Francesc Fabregas  (MF, Arsenal, 20.98) +4.03
One goal and four assists? That'll do nicely. The Arsenal skipper was simply sublime in the 6-2 win against Blackburn.

Henrique Hilario 
(pictured - GK, Chelsea, 7.15) +2.66
The Portuguese picked up 16 points standing in for the suspended Petr Cech against Liverpool. Now lose him.

Hassan Yebda 
(MF, Portsmouth, 6.87) +2.53
Scored Portsmouth's winner against Wolves, which is worth a hefty price hike in itself. Can he keep it up? It seems doubtful.

Thomas Sorensen 
(GK, Stoke, 9.98) +2.47
No win, no clean sheet, but 18 points for the Dane, who piled up a staggering 10 saves in Stoke's draw at Everton.

Dean Marney  (MF, Hull, 7.71) +2.45
The inspiration for another struggling side. Marney had an assist, three interceptions and other sundries against Wigan.

Junior Stanislas  (MF, West Ham, 7.42) +2.33
The West Ham youngster came off the bench to pile up 17.5 points against Fulham, netting a fortuitous deflected equaliser.

Andre Bikey  (DF, Burnley, 8.55) +2.26
Centre-back turned midfield general. The Ghanaian was a powerhouse against Birmingham and lashed home the winner.

Zoltan Gera 
(MF, Fulham, 9.15) +2.25
A goal helped the Hungarian to an impressive 19-point haul at West Ham that included 6 points for defensive work.

Thomas Vermaelen  (DF, Arsenal, 12.35) +2.16
A goal machine, pure and simple. At what point does his record stop being a fluke? Is he really a 15 goals a season man?

David James  (GK, Portsmouth, 8.40) +2.15
Easily the best day of a difficult season for a man who might just be England's number one. Four saves, clean sheet and win.

DOWN

Vito Mannone (GK, Arsenal, 11.82) -3.19
It had to happen. After two stunning weeks, an average day at the office caused the young Italian's value to collapse.

Robbie Keane (FW, Tottenham, 13.66) -3.00
A whole lot of nothing against Bolton following his four goal salvo against Burnley sent the Irishman's price plummeting.

Eddie Johnson (FW, Fulham, 3.76) -2.86
We're guessing you didn't have Johnson in the first place, but a yellow card, a missed open goal and a -3 score wasn't great.

Yossi Benayoun (MF, Liverpool, 10.31) -1.94
Didn't even start against Chelsea, which was bad news for his many Fantasy owners, and worse news for Liverpool.

Kieran Richardson (MF, Sunderland, 6.23) -1.80
He has been playing at left-back and his red card at Old Trafford should persuade any remaining owners to get rid.

Hugo Rodallega
(FW, Wigan, 9.16) -1.69
A predictable hangover for the Colombian striker after the high of putting Chelsea to the sword.

Ben Foster
(GK, Manchester United, 6.73) -1.68
Just when you thought he couldn't get any worse, he scored -3 against Sunderland. And Edwin van der Sar is back soon.

Andy Johnson (FW, Fulham, 8.97) -1.45
Both of Fulham's Johnson 'brothers' are among the worst of the week. Andy is still goalless this season.

Jermaine Jenas (MF, Tottenham, 8.62) -1.32
It was back to the Jermaine Jenas we know and don't really notice in Tottenham's 2-2 draw at Bolton.

Kagisho Dikgacoi
(MF, Fulham, 4.36) -1.28
Not the ideal debut for Fulham's South African midfielder - sent off for violent conduct against West Ham.
