It was a good gameweek for some and a mediocre week for many. Those with the likes of Eden Hazard, Christian Eriksen, Olivier Giroud, and Tom Heaton found many points and rose in rank quite a bit. At this point in the season, it’s not a bad idea to take some calculated risks and go after players who are on fire and looking very good at the moment. In this week’s edition of the Digest, we break down the risks that look likely of paying off.
The holiday fixture list is quite busy, with teams playing 4 games in a 12-day span. That means tired legs, rotation, and lots of strange results.

Right now there aren’t any truly obvious choices for EPL selection, though there are some players who have found form and who have the tendency to come good in the big games. Below we take a look at those players.
