Last weekend's 3-0 victory at Hull City saw the Gunners midfielder significantly add to his already impressive points tally with a complete display, racking up 20 thanks to a goal, two assists, a passing bonus and the Sky Sports man-of-the-match award.
Ramsey now boasts the best points-per-starts record in the game, sitting 11th in the overall rankings with 162 despite starting just 18 games due to his three-month lay-off.
It looks to be worth backing him to add to that haul when Newcastle head to the Emirates on the back of five successive defeats, while the 23-year-old's modest price tag of £5.8m makes acquiring his services a no-brainer.
With Arsenal Sky Bet's shortest-priced favourites of the weekend, Lukas Podolski (£8.7m) also offers appeal having bagged braces in his last two appearances.
Following fixtures with West Brom (H) and Norwich (A) only add to the attraction of Arsene Wenger's men and, while backing their backline still appears a gamble given their clean sheet against the Tigers was a first in five, Wojciech Szczesny is likely to see his popularity rise.
The only goalkeeper to boast more clean sheets this season is Petr Cech, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season after dislocating his shoulder.
Tim Howard also has 14 clean sheets to his name but the Toffees face a tougher run-in, with a trip to Southampton followed by the visit of Manchester City.
John Terry is also set to miss the rest of the campaign and might not have been the wisest pick anyway, given Jose Mourinho's intention to rotate for Super Sunday's trip to Liverpool.
While the Reds have kept just eight clean sheets this season, Martin Skrtel (£6.3m) looks a good replacement for Terry, having compensated for his side's defensive frailties with seven goals.
Given the Blues' failures in front of goal of late and following fixtures with goal-shy duo Crystal Palace and Newcastle, Skrtel should substantially add to his tally of 107 points.
I need not explain the Reds' prowess at the other end of the pitch but, for those yet to catch on, it is worth highlighting the blistering form of Raheem Sterling.
The England youngster, who costs a mere £4.8m, took his tally to 130 points with another 20 against Norwich last weekend.
Having endured a slow start to the season, Sterling has now racked up 121 points from the last 11 game weeks.
Luis Suarez is still the game's leading scorer with 305 points, warranting his captaincy for 25 per cent of all Fantasy sides.
