Kevin Long (£4.0m) is set to become an unlikely hero in Fantasy Premier League.
The Burnley centre-back is expected to retain a starting role for two home fixtures against Leicester City and Chelsea.
He could be the only player priced at £4.0m or below to feature in two matches in the Gameweek.
Long deputised for the injured Ben Mee (£4.9m) against West Bromwich Albion last weekend, earning an assist for Jack Cork’s (£4.5m) decisive goal in the 2-1 victory.
With Mee set to miss the next two Gameweeks, Long is likely to remain in the Clarets’ line-up.
Finding a Fantasy option at such a price, seemingly assured of a run of starts, is a rarity at this stage of the season so managers should look to exploit it.
For Gameweek 34, Long can help free up funds for investment in big-price strikers such as Harry Kane (£12.9m) and Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m).
Beyond that, he could be a target for those managers deploying the Free Hit chip for Gameweek 35 when there are just six fixtures to be played.
Elsewhere in FPL defences, an injury to Danny Rose (£6.4m) could boost the stock of Ben Davies (£5.9m) for Tottenham Hotspur’s two matches.
They face Manchester City at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, followed by a Tuesday visit to Brighton & Hove Albion.
Davies could be in line to start both, despite an FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United the next Saturday.
The left-back has been sold by 39,000 managers ahead of tomorrow’s 11:30 BST deadline. Only two defenders have suffered more transfers out.
But Rose's setback could reverse that trend with Davies' 1.3million owners likely to retain his services over Gameweek 34.
