Tim Krul is worth considering for your goalkeeper position as Newcastle face Crystal Palace at home in Week 3.

The majority of you will own Thibaut Courtois at around £5million in the Yahoo game, and you certainly shouldn't be selling him at that price, but that does not mean the Chelsea keeper is a top pick in Week 3 with a tough away game at Everton. Newcastle are at home to a Crystal Palace side struggling to adapt to life after Tony Pulis, and the ever-reliable Krul can be picked up for a very reasonable £6million. A good alternative.

Bournemouth has completed the signing of yet another Liverpool player this summer in defender Brad Smith.

Said chief executive Neill Blake said, "I am delighted to confirm that we have completed a deal to bring Brad to the football club. "Brad broke through at Anfield last season and impressed whenever he was called upon."

Harry Maguire is being pursued by Middlesbrough, who have made a £4m bid.

Maguire is a young prospect who plays for the England U21 team and started 25 games for Hull City last season. He is likely going to make it to the Premier League sooner rather than later even if the move to Middlesbrough doesn't work. He would be a likely started if he made the move now.

Virgil Van Dijk played well and scored in Southampton's 2-1 win over FC Twente.

There were rumors sending Van Dijk to other Premier League clubs but he is currently still on Southampton's roster and playing well. He is guaranteed to start, and he will contribute random goals throughout the season like the one he scored today. The other Southampton goal came from Sam Gallagher, who will likely earn a bigger role as a backup for the Saints this season.

Swansea have inquired about Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa.

Ulloa played backup for Jamie Vardy but was very effective off the bench and as a replacement for Vardy when injuries struck late in the season. There are multiple teams inquiring about him, and Swansea need a striker after selling Alberto Paloschi and parting ways with Bafetimbi Gomis. This would be a great fit and Ulloa would be a good late-round pick if he ends up with Swansea.

New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has stated that Nemanja Matic is not for sale.

There have been rumors regarding Matic going to Juventus after Chelsea acquired defensive midfielder N'Golo Kante. However, it seems that Conte is excited to have a choice between the two and that could be a big motivator for Matic. There is a possibility where Chelsea play both together, and move Fabregas to a more advanced position, but either way Matic is not going to be a good fantasy player this season.

Middlesbrough are in talks to acquire American goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Guzan was part of relegated Aston Villa side and has been deemed surplus at Aston Villa. The 31-year-old still has some time left as a starting goalkeeper and would be an upgrade over anyone currently at Middlesbrough. He will be a low-tier fantasy pick if he ends up with the new-comers.

Amid rumors of a transfer, Marko Arnautovic has tied himself to Stoke City for another four years after signing on renewed terms at the Britannia.

Stoke City continue to remake their image but Marko Arnautovic perhaps best represents the transition from the old (Pulis) Stoke to the new (Hughes) Stoke. Arnautovic blends physicality and a take-no-prisoners style with enough class to lead the Potters in goals from a wide attacking position. His loss would have been a significant blow as Mark Hughes continues to try to assemble the sort of squad that can regularly finish in the top half and entertain supporters at the same time.

Arsenal are hoping to bring in some defensive cover after Arsene Wenger confirmed Per Mertesacker will be side-lined for "a few months" due to injury.

The German defender was injured during last Fridays’ pre-season friendly with Lens and although initial reports suggested the knock was only minor, further tests have revealed the extent of the damage and Mertesacker immediately went under the knife. Wenger was reluctant to give a definitive timeline at this stage although he did admit that he was hoping to sign cover during the interim. "We have to look for an option to get a bit more experience," said the Gunners boss. "With Per being out, we are a bit short on the experience front and we are looking to bring somebody in." One player who has been linked, is Valencia’s centre-back Shkodran Mustafi, and with the Spanish club looking to balance their books, the German international could be an ideal replacement.

Ashley Barnes is set for an extended period on the sidelines after tests revealed his hamstring injury was more serious than originally thought.

Barnes limped off before half-time at Bradford on Saturday, but manager Sean Dyche was quick to allay growing concerns by suggesting the problem was only minor and his withdrawal was more of a precaution. However, it now looks like the striker is at risk of missing the start of the new Premier League campaign after a scan confirmed the extent of the damage. "Ashley is unfortunately going to be a bit longer than we hoped. We are not sure exactly how long yet but he’s tweaked a hamstring muscle," revealed the Clarets boss. "We are hoping it will settle down quickly. It’s nothing untoward but it could be a bit of time yet." There was better news regarding teammate Lukas Jutkiewicz, who was also forced off during the same game after complaining of muscular tightness, he trained on Tuesday and should come back into contention this weekend.

Fantasy owners will have to look elsewhere for an attack-oriented left-back after defender Aaron Cresswell suffered a knee injury.

West Ham confirmed the left-back will miss around the next four months after sustaining ligament damage in his knee following a harsh challenge in a preseason friendly over the weekend against a second-division German side. Without Cresswell, Slaven Bilic could turn to Michail Antonio at the position while rumors swirled of a potential summer move for cover at the position. Meanwhile, midfielder Manuel Lanzini will also miss the start of the season due to injury.

The Argentina Football Federation [AFA] have confirmed that West Ham playmaker Manuel Lanzini has been ruled out of this summer’s Olympic Games after suffering a knee injury during last week’s warm-up game against Colombia.

In a statement by the AFA they confirmed: "The West Ham man will remain in Miami from where he will leave for London." Lanzini was expected to miss to opening matches of the new Premier League season with the Olympic tournament due to run until August 20, but now the 23-year-old could make the trip to Stamford Bridge in game week one depending on the severity of his injury. Lanzini becomes the second West Ham player within a matter of days to be struck down, after Aaron Cresswell was ruled out for around four months, leaving Slaven Bilic without a naturally left-sided full-back until November.
