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


Carlos Tevez (FW, Manchester City, 19.25) +4.75

Even if we had been blessed with a full fixture list this weekend, it's hard to believe that anyone would have bettered Tevez's first Premier League hat-trick, bagging him 33 points.

Leon Osman (MF, Everton, 11.25) +2.28

Scored the opener against Arsenal and worked hard in midfield for his 17 points.

Micah Richards (DF, Manchester City, 9.61) +2.18

The City defender scored his second goal in a month against Blackburn.

Tomas Rosicky (MF, Arsenal, 8.67) +2.12

A first goal at the Emirates in over two years sealed a point for his side and 11.5 for himself.

Cameron Jerome (FW, Birmingham, 10.83) +1.75

Jerome's goal against Manchester United was his fourth in his last six matches.

Shay Given (GK, Manchester City, 9.50) +1.57

Would have been annoyed than most at Vincent Kompany's error that cost City a clean sheet.

Brett Emerton (DF, Blackburn, 8.89) +1.23

The Australian's value might have risen by more were he not listed as a defender.

Morten Gamst Pedersen (MF, Blackburn, 10.80) +1.1

The beneficiary of Kompany's mistake pounced to score a consolation for Rovers.

Steven Pienaar (MF, Everton, 12.18) +1.17

You don't get points for style, otherwise Pienaar's classy chip against Arsenal would have earned him more than 11 points for the match.

Benjani (FW, Manchester City, 8.09) +1.06

Made a first league appearance of the season and had a hand in three of City's goals, although only one was technically an assist.


Roque Santa Cruz (FW, Manchester City, 5.61) -2.59

Cheaper than his teenage brother, 19-year-old Blackburn forward Julio, who is yet to kick a ball in anger for the club.

Rafael (DF, Manchester United, 8.65) -2.09

Price was always going to fall after scoring 29 points in the previous gameweek.

Manuel Almunia (GK, Arsenal, 9.15) -1.93

One save + two goals conceded = -2.5 points

Samir Nasri (MF, Arsenal, 9.90) -1.56

Another player who simply couldn't match their exploits from their last game.

Craig Bellamy (FW, Manchester City, 11.26) -1.42

A rare off day for the Welshman, with a dismal 0.5 points scored.

David Dunn (MF, Blackburn, 10.40) -1.35

Struggled to keep up after a month out through injury.

Wes Brown (DF, Manchester United, 8.02) -1.34

Not the shrewd Fantasy pick many would have hoped for.

Paul Robinson (GK, Blackburn, 3.22) -1.25

May have conceded four goals, but remains the game's most economical player, costing just 0.05 per point.

Wayne Rooney (FW, Manchester United, 20.45) -1.14  

Tried his best, but had little help from his team-mates.

Aaron Ramsey (MF, Arsenal, 7.27) -0.92

Scored 23.5 points last time out, but just one against Everton. That price drop may come in handy though.

Landon Donovan (FW, Everton, 6.99), Patrick Vieira (MF, Manchester City, 5.70) and Vladimir Stojkovic (GK, Wigan, 5.54) are all now available for selection.
