The English Premier League delivers a heavy slate for Matchday 38 and there are still plenty of storylines to follow for today's action. I usually try not to lean too heavily on narratives for my fantasy analysis. For all of the players who score huge fantasy points against their former teams, there are plenty who do next to nothing in so-called revenge games. Teams who have “nothing to play for” can still get results as Leicester, Brighton, Aston Villa and West Ham have proven in recent weeks. Even with that in mind, the storylines heading into the final day of the EPL season are so strong that they are difficult to ignore for DFS.


Mohamed Salah is one goal ahead of Son Heung-Min for the Golden Boot and while both teams have more important things to play for, they and their teammates could turn their attention to that race if their spots in the table appear secure. 

Speaking of spots in the table, Liverpool is competing with Manchester City for first place, while Tottenham and Arsenal battle it out for the last Champions League spot. On the other end of the table, Burnley needs to match Leed’s result to avoid relegation. Those six teams may be safer for fantasy, especially when it comes to players going the full 90 minutes.

Nick PopeBRNNEW49006.481010.79
Pope has been tremendous of late, with 11 saves and two goals conceded in his last two games. I'm not particularly optimistic Burnley can match Leeds and avoid relegation but you could do much worse than playing one of the best shot-stoppers in the league at home in a do-or-die game. 
Danny WardLEISOU510011.441216.50
Ony four teams have allowed more saves than Southampton this season and they all have scored at least 12 more goals. Ward got a win and four saves while allowing one goal in his first start of the season last week and I see no reason why he can't repeat that performance. He looks like the best keeper on the slate for cash games.
Liverpool needs a win at home to have any hope of winning the Premier League. I know they are dealing with a lot of injuries but they are at home and Wolverhampton has scored the fourth-fewest goals in the league. I don't think it is wise to pay up for a keeper with all 20 teams in action but if that is your strategy, Alisson is your best bet.
Jose SaWOLLIV37008.86713.26
Only three teams have allowed fewer goals than Wolves, and Sa conceded one goal on three saves in the reverse fixture in December. With Mohamed Salah out, this loos like a good place to chase some cheap fantasy points. 
Vicente GuaitaCRYMUN44006.69910.81
Manchester United has one last chance to be a massive disappointment this season, and I think there is a decent chance they will take it. They lost 4-0 at Brighton their last game and Palace has been better than Brighton this season. I'm not predicting a win and a clean sheet but I think this is a good place to chase it in tournaments. 
Son Heung-MinTOTNOR####18.742125.05
Son is one goal behind Mohamed Salah for the Golden Boot and if this game gets out of hand, I think Son and his teammates could make a push for Son to score more goals. More importantly, Tottenham faces the worst team in the league and needs a point to hold off Arsenal in the race for fourth.
Sadio ManeLIVWOL830012.721918.22
I wouldn't try to talk you out of playing any Liverpool attackers, but Mane wins the tie-breaker due to his price on DK and his five crosses in the last two games.
Jarrod BowenWHUBHA820014.021717.97
Is it time to admit Bowen is actually good? We used to only play him for the crosses but with three goals in his last three games, he looks like one of the best all-around attackers Sunday.
Callum WilsonNEWBRN41007.381512.17
Much has been written about Chris Wood returning to Turf Moor to send his former team to The Champonship, but Callum Wilson is the real threat. He scored the lone goal against Burnley back in December and had a team-high three shots in his first start in nearly five months.
Kiernan Dewsbury-HallLEISOU55007.83109.79
I think the best strategy for Sunday is to pay up for forwards and save on midfielders, and Dewsbury-Hall fits perfectly. He struggled against Chelsea but he had at least nine DK fantasy points in six of his last seven games before that.
Kevin De BruyneMCIAVL950018.882125.61
It is surprising to see him priced this low on DraftKings. He remains as safe as they come.
Jack GrealishMCIAVL670010.151613.38
He finally scored his third goal of the season last week, to go with nine chances created in his last three games. I love his value on FD, and it probably doesn't hurt that he is facing his former team.
Christian EriksenBRELEE920016.211820.89
It is rare to see someone be so consistent on FD, where Eriksen has eight straight games with at least 18.6 fantasy points. Eriksen is just as consistent in DK scoring, and only Norwich have allowed more goals than Leeds this season.
Bruno FernandesMUNCRY760014.891921.24
I was surprised there weren't more standout value plays in his price range on DK. I was also surprised he was in that range, considering he has at least 14.7 DK fantasy points in three of his last four games. Even in a slightly down year, he is too good to be this cheap against Crystal Palace.
MidfieldersTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPGFD $FD FPPG
Harvey BarnesLEISOU84009.91413.19
He has two chances created in each of his last two starts, with three goals in his last three starts. I don't know why he is so cheap on FanDuel.
Dan BurnNEWBRN29004.081214.93
Burn may be the safest defender on the entire FanDuel slate. He has at least 13 FD fantasy points in five consecutive games and Burnley has allowed the most clearances in the league.
Ryan SessegnonTOTNOR51005.689.84
Sessegnon has at least eight crosses in two of his last five games. This is a great matchup, and while I don't trust him, he looks like a nice GPP play. 
Caglar SoyuncuLEISOU29004.051012.05
He has double-digit fantasy points in four of his last five starts, and Soyuncu has a chance to start if Ricardo Pereira is out again.
Toti managed just 7.8 FD fantasy points in his lone start of the season against Norwich last week, but Liverpool is a much better matchup for defensive stats. He looks like a great punt play, especially for cash games.
Kieran TrippierNEWBRN570013.371321.78
 Trippier was outstanding for Newcastle prior to his foot injury, averaging 15.9 DK fantasy points through four games. Burnley allows a ton of crosses and free kicks, which is where Trippier thrives.
Cedric SoaresARSEVE48006.7688.63
Like Sessegnon, Soares has a high ceiling and a nice matchup. Soares has double-digit crosses in three of his last six starts. Everton has been suspect defensively all season and they might lack intensity after avoiding relegation three days earlier.
