Son and Salah standout options
Son Heung-min (£9.2m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) are the standout replacements for Saka ahead of the Double Gameweek 7 deadline at 11:00 BST on Saturday 30 September.
The Arsenal star is the most-selected midfielder in Fantasy, found in over 63 per cent of squads.
Those managers have a big decision to make after Mikel Arteta provided an update on Saka on Friday ahead of the visit to Bournemouth.
"The assessment is ‘okay, is he fit enough and good enough to be able to be selected tomorrow?’ That’s the question mark and so far he hasn’t trained with the team," Arteta told the club's official website.
While there's no doubt Saka could bring in a big score against the Cherries if he is available, Arsenal’s short-term schedule suggests he could struggle for more returns.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), three of both sides’ four matches score just two.
|GW8||MCI (H)||LUT (A)||BHA (A)||WOL (A)|
|GW9||CHE (A)||FUL (H)||EVE (H)||WHU (H)|
|GW10||SHU (H)||CRY (A)||NFO (H)||LUT (H)|
|GW11||NEW (A)||CHE (H)||LUT (A)||NFO (A)|
The South Korean has scored all five of his goals this season in his three outings as a striker, claiming 20 and 14-point returns.
Spurs' fixtures also promote the appeal of doubling up with James Maddison (£7.9m) in midfield from Gameweek 8.
The playmaker has two goals and four assists in his first six outings and is averaging 6.5 points per match (ppm) under Ange Postecoglou.
Saka owners should also be planning a route to bring in Salah for Liverpool’s favourable schedule.
The Egyptian’s three goals and four assists have earned him 43 points, just one point behind Saka and Son at the top of the midfield standings.
Further down the price range, Aston Villa's Moussa Diaby (£6.7m) offers managers an extended run of kind opponents.
The Frenchman has two goals and two assists so far this season, averaging 5.3ppm.
According to the FDR, six of Villa's seven matches from Gameweek 8 onwards score just two.
