Hull, having spent the early part of the summer bolstering their defense, are now looking to the attack with a bid for Burnley striker Charlie Austin.

There are two solid reasons to make this move. At 23 year-old, the 6'2 Austin has scored 41 goals in 82 matches for Burnley. The combination of his age and scoring in the Championship mean there is some chance he can be a productive forward in the Premier League. Even should that fail and Hull be relegated, he is a proven scorer a level down and would be a great asset to another promotion campaign. Assuming his wages aren't too high, this is a prudent move for Hull.

Jack Wilshere ended his long layoff with a substitute appearance against Hull City in Monday's 3-1 Arsenal win.

With Arsenal playing well in his absence, it wasn't clear exactly when Jack Wilshere was going to get his chance to start working back to the sort of form that only first team action can provide. Wilshere got his first dip back in the pool on Monday when he came on for Aaron Ramsey in the 68th minute. He didn't contribute a great deal in his 22+ minutes on the pitch but at least it's a start.

Aaron Ramsey provided an assist to Alexis Sanchez and then took matters into his own hands and scored Arsenal's second which turned out to be the winner in the 3-1 away result.

It wasn't a vintage Aaron Ramsey performance per se but it was certainly a productive one as the Welshman contributed a goal and an assist to the 3-1 win. The reason to say that it wasn't a vintage performance was that those two contributions were about the only evidence that Ramsey played and he went off after 68 minutes. If the deflection that led to Ramsey's goal goes in a different direction then his week looks entirely different.

There was no clean sheet this time around but Hector Bellerin produced nine points in the Yahoo format in the 3-1 Arsenal win over Hull City on Monday.

The only gap in Bellerin's recent production has been the match where he didn't start in favor of the returning Mathieu Debuchy. In Week 35, Bellerin contributed three interceptions, a shot on target, a successful cross, and a tackle won. Add those nine points to the 10 in Week 34 and 10 in Week 32 and you've got a nice run of fantasy form.

Ahmed Elmohamady continued his strong fantasy production with an assist on Hull City's lone goal against Arsenal in the 3-1 loss at the KC Stadium.

After 17 fantasy points last week we wrote about the surprise that Ahmed Elmohamady is Hull City's leader in fantasy points this season. He didn't disappoint in Week 35 with an assist, three successful crosses and a tackle won. It wasn't a transcendent performance by any stretch of the imagination but when looking for players in single ownership formats heading into next season (assuming Hull City stays up) Elmohamady isn't a bad value play, even more so if he's listed flexibly as both a defender and a midfielder.

Ex-Spurs performed poorly in midfield against old rivals Arsenal as their give-aways fueled a 3-1 Arsenal win.

Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore arriving at Hull City in the summer of 2013 was seen as very good business for Steve Bruce's side, it certainly wasn't on Monday as the pair conspired to ignite multiple Arsenal attacks. One such give-away led to the foul and free kick that Alexis Sanchez turned into Arsenal's first goal. There were more give-aways that had consequences ranging from good chances to nothing serious but as with so many of Hull City's acquisitions under Steve Bruce, things started out well enough but the value hasn't been sustained.

Nikica Jelavic returned to first team action on Monday with a ten-minute substitute appearance against Arsenal.

He wasn't able to do anything to influence the outcome of this week's match but the return of Nikica Jelavic may have some influence in the battle to stay out of the third relegation spot. When he's been healthy, Jelavic has been a productive player for Hull City and managers looking to pick up a useful player in single ownership formats, Jelavic may be available on waivers after a second half of the season riddled with injuries. If you can pick him up on the cheap then it might be a solid get.

John Terry wants to see Didier Drogba at the club next season and hopes Chelsea give him a new deal.

Didier Drogba's contract expires at the end of the season but John Terry hopes the striker returns. Drogba is the third choice striker at Chelsea right now behind Diego Costa and Loic Remy, but with both of them injured, he's provided incredible cover considering his age. Drogba would not be a fantasy option next season if he returns, but he could once again play an important role in Chelsea's title run.

Brazilian coach Dunga announced his 23-man squad for next month’s Copa America which included a number of Premier League players, however there was one notable absentee – Chelsea midfielder Oscar.

It was widely accepted that Oscar – who sat out of Sundays’ win over Crystal Palace – was still suffering from the after-effects of concussion but Dunga revealed "Oscar got an injury in his last training session with Chelsea, we spoke with Jose Mourinho and the doctor. His recuperation will take time he won’t be at his best during the Copa America." The specifics of the injury aren’t known at this stage although it is believed to be muscular related – possibly thigh – and with the Premier League title already secured the club will take no chances. Team mates Willian and Felipe Luis were called up along with Liverpool play maker Philippe Coutinho.

Daniel Sturridge will play no further part this season after Liverpool made the decision for the England international to undergo surgery in an attempt to have the striker fully fit for the start of new campaign.

Sturridge has been struggling with ongoing hamstring, thigh and hip problems and was sent to America for a specialist assessment which highlighted an underlying condition thought to be the main cause of his problems. With only 3-games remaining and Champions League qualification unlikely the player opted to go under the knife rather than risk breaking down again at a later stage. In his absence Liverpool have struggled to hit the dizzy heights of last season especially in front of goal as Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert have all failed to fill the void managing a meagre 4 league goals between them.

Burnley cannot seem to buy a goal these days but their defense came off a productive weekend despite the 1-0 loss away to West Ham United.

Burnley are now on six games played without scoring a single goal, with the past four matches all ending in 0-1 or 1-0 results. Their defense though has been respectable, conceding a total of ten goals in their last ten games combined. Despite keeping clean sheets in only two of those contests, Claret defensive options have shown to be productive, such as this past loss to the Hammers. Three of the four defenders reached double digit points in the Yahoo game, including Ben Mee who scored 11. They will be tasked to stop Dame N'Doye in a pivotal relegation battle this coming weekend.

Seamus Coleman had a tough day for fantasy managers as Everton shipped three goals in their loss to Aston Villa over the weekend, resulting in a nice price discount.

Coleman had the worst score of any of the Toffee defenders with a -4 in the Yahoo game. That has triggered a price drop which should be considered for Week 35 as Everton will be set to host Sunderland. While the Black Cats are coming off of a positive display with a win at home, odds are they will find things difficult at Goodison Park. Between attacking and defending potential, Coleman should be among the ranked defenders to own for Week 35.
