For those of you who want to know where DGW players rank? We rated the DGW by team and determined this the rank (best to least best): Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, Man Utd, Southampton, Leicester, Sunderland, Watford, West Brom. Some players with only one week should still rate ahead of the DGW options so use your best judgement.

Reminder: Joshua King is awesome
