Our weekly look at the risers and fallers in Fantasy Football.


Burnley feature heavily among the big winners following their 4-1 win against Hull. Top dog status went to Graham Alexander, who converted two emphatic penalties and deserved extra style marks. Martin paterson and Brian Jensen also saw their price tag hiked.

There were signs of life from Alberto Aquilani, who started against Fulham, registering three shots on target and three fouls won, totalling 12 points. He was taken off after an hour and will no doubt be back on the bench next Monday night against West Ham.

And Carlos Tevez is now the third most expensive player in the game (behind Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard) after another brace, this time against Birmingham City.

Graham Alexander (DF, Burnley, 10.68) +3.30
Robert Green (GK, West Ham, 6.55) +2.60
Martin Paterson (FW, Burnley, 8.95) +2.39
Mark Schwarzer (GK, Fulham, 11.86) +2.36
Paul Robinson (GK, Blackburn, 8.88) +2.30
Kevin Kilbane (MF, Hull, 4.60) +2.27
Alberto Aquilani (MF, Liverpool, 7.73) +2.08
Nedum Onuoha (DF, Man City, 7.79) +2.03
Carlos Tevez (FW, Man City, 23.45) +1.90
Brian Jensen (GK, Burnley, 3.35) +1.78


Not sure what the deal is with Kagisho Dikgacoi - he scored 3.5 points against Liverpool to take his season's total into positive numbers, yet saw most of his value wiped off. Even at that price, he won't have many buyers.

Birmingham keeper Maik Taylor came in for his second appearance of the season at Manchester City, and probably wished he hadn't. Five goals and -11 points later, his price is just 2.59.

Bernard Mendy, Nicky Barmby, Craig Godon, Fraizer Campbell and Danny Murphy all put up red numbers, and all of them ended in the week's 10 biggest fallers.

Kagisho Dikgacoi (MF, Fulham, 1.15) -4.36
Maik Taylor (GK, Birmingham, 2.59) -3.24
Craig Gordon (GK, Sunderland, 6.57) -2.29
Darren Bent (FW, Sunderland, 13.35) -1.93
Nick Barmby (MF, Hull, 1.39) -1.89
Bernard Mendy (MF, Hull, 1.28) -1.74
Ji-Sung Park (MF, Man Utd, 6.27) -1.62
Danny Murphy (MF, Fulham, 7.76) -1.54
Martin Olsson (DF, Blackburn, 10.85) -1.53
Fraizer Campbell (FW, Sunderland, 5.71) -1.45
