Having produced 44 points in the last three Gameweeks, Fernandes could now be the top captain pick for the first time this season.
Martial has 35 points across his last two home matches, while Greenwood has claimed double-digit scores in two of the last three Gameweeks.
Fresh Mane to deliver?
Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) welcomes the Clarets off the back of his season-high 18 points at Brighton.
Vardy back in contention
The Leicester City striker has scored three goals in the last two Gameweeks, totalling 22 points.
Vardy produced 16 points in his previous meeting with the Cherries, scoring twice and supplying an assist in Gameweek 4.
Pulisic has produced points in all five of his appearances since the season resumed, while Willian has three double-figure returns in his last four outings.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker has scored 10 goals in his 10 Premier League meetings with the Gunners.
