Kieran Trippier (£5.3m) has soared in popularity in Fantasy Premier League as managers prepare for the reduced Gameweek 8.
Trippier has been a reliable source of returns at St James' Park this season, averaging 7.0 points per match thanks to his impact at both ends of the pitch.
He has combined one goal with two clean sheets and three bonus points in his three home outings.
Trippier takes his place in a best XI that lines up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Erling Haaland (£12.0m) handed the armband and Harry Kane (£11.4m) named vice-captain.
Tottenham Hotspur's goalkeeper has conceded only once across his last two home matches, and Spurs now host bottom club Leicester City. Lloris has produced 22 points in his last four appearances, thanks to two clean sheets, one save point and four bonus.
His 11 chances created are joint-top for Newcastle this season.
The playmaker offers a major alternative for the captaincy as Man City travel to Wolves. De Bruyne scored four goals and earned his career-high 24 points in the corresponding fixture last season.
The Brazilian's 20 shots are more than any other midfielder in Fantasy this season. Martinelli faces a Brentford side who have conceded at least twice in three of their six matches in 2022/23.
Southampton's playmaker has averaged 6.0 points per away match this season ahead of his visit to Aston Villa. Ward-Prowse scored nine goals on the road last term, joint-second among all players in Fantasy.
Newcastle's Paraguayan midfielder can prove a major source of value at home to AFC Bournemouth. Almiron's nine shots and six shots in the box are both team-leading totals over the last four Gameweeks.
Man City's forward has 13 goals in his last eight matches in all competitions this term. Haaland has averaged 11.2 points per match in Fantasy and will be the go-to captain for millions of his 79.7 per cent owners against Wolves.
The Spurs forward has produced returns in each of his last five matches, totalling 38 points in that run thanks to five goals and an assist. Kane has a prolific record against his visitors Leicester, averaging 9.0 points per match in their meetings.
Fulham's talisman visits Nottingham Forest on the back of six goals in the first six Gameweeks. Mitrovic's 27 shots and 15 shots on target each put him among the top two players in Fantasy this season.
