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


Asmir Begovic bounced back from shipping five goals at Chelsea with a well-earned clean sheet against Everton - well done to anyone who snapped him up for just 1.00 following the mauling at Stamford Bridge. Heurelho Gomes also starred in goal for Spurs.

It will be cold comfort for Sunderland's David Meyler, but he is this week's big price mover despite being stretchered off against Manchester United with a knee injury after just 37 minutes.

A first Wigan goal for Victor Moses sees his price shoot up, while Craig Bellamy, Michael Brown, Kevin Doyle and Nani were also all on target.

David Meyler (MF, Sunderland, 4.88) +3.67

Asmir Begovic (GK, Stoke City, 4.52) +3.52

Victor Moses (FW, Wigan Athletic, 6.95) +3.91

Craig Bellamy (FW, Manchester City, 14.74) +2.91

Michael Brown (MF, Portsmouth, 8.42) +2.68

Kevin Doyle (FW, Wolverhampton Wanderers, 11.15) +2.15

Nicolas Anelka (FW, Chelsea, 16.54) +2.50

Jack Cork (DF, Burnley, 7.39) +2.43

Heurelho Gomes (GK, Tottenham Hotspur, 12.99) +2.21

Nani (MF, Manchester United, 16.20) +1.99


After posting some big scores in recent weeks, Mikel Arteta's value suffers following the stalemate at the Britannia Stadium, while Salomon Kalou's price eases down for not repeating his hat-trick heroics from the previous week.

Robert Green, Marcus Hahnemann and Brad Friedel all shipped three goals in their matches.

Mikel Arteta (MF, Everton, 18.87) -3.01

Salomon Kalou (FW, Chelsea, 8.85) -2.91

Robert Green (GK, West Ham United, 3.15) -2.78

Brad Friedel (GK, Aston Villa, 11.91) -2.57

Sol Campbell (DF, Arsenal, 7.33) -2.37

Marcus Hahnemann (GK, Wolverhampton Wanderers, 10.95) -2.32

Ilan (FW, West Ham United, 7.18) -2.07

James Collins (DF, Aston Villa, 12.89) -1.85

Kevin Davies (FW, Bolton Wanderers, 6.68) -1.83

Scott Parker (MF, West Ham United, 11.14) -1.75
