GOALKEEPER

Sergio Romero, MANU v. WAT ($4,500): You get a $1,000 discount for the Manchester United starting goalkeeper Sunday after manager Jose Mourinho decided to rest no. keeper David de Gea. The Red Devils have second place and a spot in next year's UEFA Champions League locked up heading into the final match of the year. This match has no major importance for either team as it pertains to the standings, but United would surely love to get all three points and a clean sheet to finish the year on a high note.

DEFENDER

Shkodran Mustafi, ARS at HUD ($5,500): Mustafi's average of 21.7 fantasy points per game stands out among the defenders priced at $5,500 and below. I try to spend as little as possible on defenders in order to spend up on big attackers, and the German would be the highest I go Sunday.

Joel Ward, CPL v. WBA ($5,000): Ward almost averages 3x in value, and he has a ton of 15+ fantasy-point games this season. The $5,000 tier is kind of the lowest you can go at defender without getting too risky, and Ward should be regarded as one of the top choices in that tier.

Eric Bailly, MANU v. WAT ($5,000): Bailly will come into the lineup as Mourinho rotates through the side. He is a beast of a defender with a very high work rate, so his floor of 10+ fantasy points should be fairly secure. He also has produced 25.5 fantasy points in a start this season, when he didn't even score or assist, so a 5x ceiling is reachable.

MIDFIELDERS

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. BHA ($13,000): Salah's price may have risen to the appropriate level, but he is still worth every penny. The Egyptian has actually gone three straight games without scoring a goal after bagging 11 in the seven previous games, but Brighton conceded six goals in their last three away games. Salah is certainly the top player on the board for the final day of the season, as he only needs one more goal to become the highest scorer ever in a 38-game Premier League season.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, ARS at HUD ($8,000): Mkhitaryan is producing 20's without even scoring or assisting a goal. He has scored at least 20 fantasy points in five of his last six games, including three without a goal or assist. Huddersfield are safe from the relegation battle, so they may loosen up their tactics a bit with nothing to lose, which Mkhitaryan would certainly benefit from.

Ryan Fraser, BOU at BUR ($8,000): Fraser remains a bargain, though he has been on a tear of late. He has put up 18+ fantasy points in five of the last six games, with a goal and an assist in that span, so he makes for a very solid bargain play in the midfield.

FORWARDS

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, ARS at HUD ($12,000): Aubameyang has scored eight goals in his last eight starts, and it isn't because he is on fire, it is simply because he is that good. His addition to the Gunners attack has been a huge boost in production, and his versatility as an attacker has allowed him to get comfortable on the left wing, where Arsenal were a bit weak before his arrival. It's hard seeing Huddersfield keeping him off the board in the final game of the season.

Wilfried Zaha, CPL v. WBA ($11,000): Zaha has scored three goals in his two three home games, and much of it is due to his relocation up top as a pure forward. He started much of the year as a right midfielder, but his move up top has paid dividends for Palace's attack. A matchup against the 19th-place team in the league, whose fate is sealed, has to be an exciting matchup for the Ivory Coast international.

Jordan Ayew, SWA v. STK ($7,500): Ayew ends the season with a matchup against one of the worst defenses in the league. Stoke are tied with West Ham for the worst defensive record in the Prem, and this will be Stoke's last match in the top division. Ayew will surely be licking his chops as Stoke arrive at Liberty Stadium, where the Ghanaian has scored two in his last four.
