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

UP

Jermain Defoe (FW, Tottenham 22.98) +9.95

Well, that's what five goals, plus another two shots on target, will do for you. Now the most expensive in the game.

Aaron Lennon (MF, Tottenham 18.84) +6.09

Right on team-mate Defoe's coat-tails, the nippy winger celebrated returning after a month out with three great assists and a goal of his own.

Florent Malouda (MF, Chelsea 15.36) +4.84

There are no points for style, but the Frenchman's thunderbolt earned him extra 'match-winning goal' points in the 4-0 humbling of Wolves.

Thomas Sorensen (GK, Stoke 12.60) +4.59

His five saves - plus Kevin-Prince Boateng's tame penalty effort - helped the Potters secure a clean sheet.

Marton Fulop (GK, Sunderland 7.48) +3.50

The Hungarian's run in the Sunderland team proper got off to a good start as he made two saves to see Arsenal fail to score for the first time all season.

Edwin van der Sar (GK, Manchester United 15.84) +3.11

United may have bossed Everton on Saturday evening, but the big Dutchman was still called upon to make fives saves.

Darren Fletcher (MF, Manchester United 9.02) +3.10

As with Malouda, Fletcher's stunning opener is rewarded with a match-winner bonus, but the rest of his performance was characteristically busy too, with six interceptions made.

Peter Crouch (FW, Tottenham 11.98) +3.03

For once Crouch is dwarfed by Defoe and Lennon, but a goal, one assist and three shots on target still earned him a tidy 23.5 points.

Michael Essien (MF, Chelsea 11.87) +3.02

The usually fantasy unfriendly midfielder was rampant against Wolves, his brace spurring him on to another shot as he searched in vain for a hat-trick.

Brett Emerton (DF, Blackburn 8.36) +2.56 

The upside of being listed as a defender when you play in midfield is when you can add a clean sheet bonus to your otherwise busy display, as was the case for the Australian at Bolton.

DOWN

Chris Kirkland (GK, Wigan 1.67) -3.92

Quelle surprise, the Wigan custodian is the biggest dropper of the week. Still managed to make six saves, mind.

Ivan Klasnic (FW, Bolton 5.55) -3.08

The Bolton striker is still paying for that big 20.5-point haul a couple of gameweeks ago.

Aruna Dindane (FW, Portsmouth 9.76) -2.98

That hat-trick against Wigan feels like a long time ago, as the French striker was again ineffective in the defeat at Stoke.

Steve Simonsen (GK, Stoke 5.78) -2.95

A bit harsh on the Potters' reserve keeper, who scored well in the win over Spurs before being dropped again.

Manuel Almunia (GK, Arsenal 7.18) -2.63

Were it not for the Gunners keeper conceding Darren Bent's fortunate close-range finish, you wouldn't even know he took to the field at Sunderland.

Fabio Aurelio (DF, Liverpool 10.49) -2.53

The Brazilian only came on late against Manchester City so was not penalised for either of their goals.

Nicky Shorey (DF, Aston Villa 6.41) -2.41

The left-back has been a fixture on the Villa bench since the start of October, and his value has finally caught up with that after a decent first few weeks. Today joined Nottingham Forest on loan.

Andy Keogh (FW, Wolves 4.17) -2.29

Perhaps made his presence felt against Chelsea more than any other Wolves player; came off the bench on the hour-mark, committed four fouls and got booked.

Robert Green (GK, West Ham 7.85) -2.17

The sometime England keeper's total fantasy contribution on Humberside at the weekend was picking the ball out of the net three times.

Dan Gosling (MF, Everton 8.73) -2.13

After scoring the match-winner for Everton at West Ham, a trip to Old Trafford was always going to be a bit of a comedown for the youngster
