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


Stephen Hunt (MF, Hull, 13.15) +3.14
Two goals and 40 points for the Hull winger over Christmas.

Wayne Rooney (FW, Man Utd, 21.27) +2.91
The biggest scorer in the game with a whacking 49.5-point haul.

Pablo Zabaleta
(DF, Man City, 7.69) +2.87
Totted up 10 interceptions in two games. Fact.

Craig Fagan
(FW, Hull, 5.11) +2.81
A goal and an assist made the Hull man a brilliant bargain buy.

Darren Bent (FW, Sunderland, 13.76) +2.81
Bent is back, scoring three goals to take his season tally to 14.

Joe Hart (GK, Birmingham, 12.25) +2.72
Nine saves and two clean sheets. No wonder Brum want to keep him.

Cesc Fabregas
(MF, Arsenal, 21.00) +2.72
Was his two-goal performance against Villa the best cameo ever?

Samir Nasri (MF, Arsenal, 10.67) +2.57
Already has 27 points with another game to play on Wednesday.

Shay Given (GK, Man City, 8.54) +2.54
The third most-owned player has made a lot of managers happy.

Matthew Upson (DF, West Ham, 8.49) +2.47
Has helped West Ham to inch clear of the relegation zone.


Marcus Hahnemann (GK, Wolves, 8.85) -4.99
Well, he was ludicrously overpriced, wasn't he?

Asmir Begovic
(GK, Portsmouth, 4.52) -4.52
Fifty per cent off for the Pompey keeper, who scored -10.

Frank Nouble
(FW, West Ham, 2.46) -3.53
A pretty steep drop for a bloke who played for one minute.

Fabian Delph
(MF, Aston Villa, 2.25) -3.35
Delph got more action than Nouble - 14 minutes at Arsenal.

Ryan Shawcross
(DF, Stoke City, 9.30) -2.70
The in-demand Stoke man can redeem himself against Fulham tonight.

Richard Dunne
(DF, Aston Villa, 10.15) -2.08
A reality check for Dunne, who has sparkled since joining Villa.

Brad Friedel
(GK, Aston Villa, 11.40) -2.03
Defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal took the stuffing out of Friedel.

Denilson (MF, Arsenal, 11.29) -1.99
The Brazilian's value was always likely to come to earth.

Andrei Arshavin (MF, Arsenal, 14.62) -1.88
A disappointing Christmas for the Russian by his standards.

Niko Kranjcar (MF, Tottenham, 11.57) -1.74
Squeezed out of Spurs' midfield by fellow Croat Luka Modric.
