We take a look at the top performers from game week 29 - check out the Team of the Week to see if any of your players have made the cut.
Martin Dubravka - £6.6m: 9 points
Dubravka has now kept two clean sheets in his last five Premier League games and has posted eight for the season so far. His recent form has been replicated through Newcastle's results, only losing one of their last five league games.
Luke Shaw - £7.8m: 12 points
Shaw's resurgence epitomises that of Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The left-back attained a Sky Sports Man of the Match award for his stand-out performance in defence against Liverpool. In doing so, he earned a third successive clean sheet and a fifth in six matches. In his last six appearances, Shaw has recorded 42 Fantasy Football points, averaging seven per match in that spell.
Declan Rice - £6.6m: 9 points
Rice earned a second appearance in the Fantasy Team of the Week in just six weeks following his inferior value in comparison to other players also registering nine points, such as Virgil van Dijk and Sead Kolasinac. The 20-year-old is averaging just over six points per match in his last six games, which only 2.7 per cent of Sky Sports Fantasy Football managers have benefited from.
Fabian Schar - £6.9m: 9 points
Only a shrewd 0.7 per cent of Fantasy Football bosses have been rewarded with another Team of the Week performance from Schar, his second in five game weeks. His clean sheet helped Newcastle to a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield. Schar has two clean sheets, two goals, one assist and one MOTM award in his last five matches, boasting 44 points in that time.
Wilfried Zaha - £10.2m: 19 points
Zaha picked up his third MOTM award of the campaign in Crystal Palace's resounding win over Leicester, scoring a double along the way. He has 29 Fantasy Football points from his last two appearances and has been directly involved in six goals in as many matches (four goals, two assists), proving his worth to Roy Hodgson's side.
Gerard Deulofeu - £7.7m: 30 points
Deulofeu scored the most Fantasy Football points from game week 29 with his hat-trick in Watford's win over Cardiff a contributing factor. He registered 30 per cent of his overall tally for the season with his performance and doubled his goal haul for the season in the process. He notched his third MOTM award of the term.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan - £9.7m: 13 points
Although Mkhitaryan has been out injured for some time, he has scored three in his last three appearances, recording 29 points from his last three. His goal and assist against Southampton allowed him to earn a place in the Fantasy Team of the Week.
Ryan Babel - £7.4m: 10 points
The former Liverpool player scored his first goal in a Fulham shirt and put them ahead before they squandered their lead. His shots tier one bonus made room for Babel to sneak into the Team of the Week, which also allowed him to hit double figures in regards to points from a single match, benefiting the 0.1 per cent of Fantasy Football bosses who had selected him.
Troy Deeney - £8.8m: 17 points
Deeney had a hand in three of Watford's five goals against Cardiff through his two strikes and one assist for Deulofeu's goal. It is his largest points haul of his season thus far and it means he now has directly contributed to six goals in his last seven matches (four goals, two assists).
Salomon Rondon - £9.5m: 12 points
Rondon seemed to enjoy playing in front of Miguel Almiron, contributing to both Newcastle goals in their victory by scoring one and setting up the other. His shots tier one bonus points ensured the striker reached 100 Fantasy Football points for the season. Just a mere one per cent of Sky Sports Fantasy Football bosses have been paid dividends from his four goal involvements in five matches.
Ashley Barnes - £9.7m: 12 points
The Burnley striker has scored in each of his last four Premier League games, which doubles his tally for the campaign. He has 36 Fantasy Football points in that spell, which averages nine per match, while he has contributed to six goals in his last eight (five strikes, one assist). Rather surprisingly, Barnes earned his first MOTM award of the season in their win over Tottenham, allowing him to make the Fantasy Football Team of the Week.
