The Manchester United midfielder is the most-bought player ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline, transferred in by 461,000+ new owners.
Fernandes produced 17 points in his previous appearance, a 3-1 win at Everton in Gameweek 8.
That helped the Portuguese to his third double-figure haul in his seven matches this season.
The underlying numbers show why Fernandes has been such a success recently.
His 15 shots in the last four Gameweeks rank joint-top with Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) among FPL midfielders, while his 12 chances created were third overall.
Chelsea duo an option
Ziyech has recorded double-digits in both his starts, producing one goal, three assists and 25 points in the last two Gameweeks.
Werner, meanwhile, has scored in each of Chelsea’s last four matches in all competitions, totalling five goals and two assists.
They can profit against a Newcastle side who have yet to keep a clean sheet at home this term, conceding nine goals in their four matches.
Aston Villa alternatives
Jack Grealish (£7.5m) and Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) look set to pose major problems for Brighton & Hove Albion.
Watkins is the most-bought forward for Gameweek 9, transferred in by 210,000+ managers on the back of his two goals against Arsenal last time out.
