Fantasy Premier League managers who have Ryan Fraser (£6.0m) in their team are faced with a quandary heading into Gameweek 9.
The AFC Bournemouth winger, along with team-mate Joshua King (£6.4m), will be assessed for the visit of Southampton due to an ongoing hamstring problem.
Just under 22 per cent of managers own the Scot, who is the top midfielder for value in terms of points per million, with 8.0.
AFC Bournemouth also have a favourable match in Gameweek 10, when they travel to Fulham.
But from Gameweek 11 onwards, they embark on a daunting schedule that could prompt big sales of the popular winger.
Only three of their subsequent 12 opponents score less than three in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).
More than 90,000 owners have sold Fraser ahead of Gameweek 9’s 11.30 BST deadline on 20 October.
Those seeking replacements could consider Brighton & Hove Albion winger Anthony Knockaert (£5.5m) or Bernard (£5.9m) of Everton.
Both are similarly priced and have kinder schedules over the mid-term.
Christian Eriksen’s (£9.2m) return for Tottenham Hotspur boosts his appeal as a big-hitting differential.
Owned by just 4.5 per cent, the Dane is available for their trip to West Ham United.
Eriksen has form against the Hammers, too.
He scored in the corresponding fixture last season, a 3-2 win for Spurs in Gameweek 6.
