After an unconvincing start to the campaign Manchester United look the real deal all of a sudden but now may not be the smartest time to sign a Red or two for your Fantasy side.
A pair of tough away trips loom for United, before the Manchester derby at the end of the month.
In fact the three game run of Arsenal, Everton and City means the league leaders face fourth, fifth and second placed sides in consecutive gameweeks. Four of their next six are away from home.
So while Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and co. may be attracting your hard-earned Fantasy cash, it could pay to hold off and wait for easier fixtures.
But before we write off the Reds as transfer possible, let's look at the positives.
Louis van Gaal's men go into Sunday's clash with Arsenal on a four match unbeaten run in all competitions. They have lost just once in the league and only one other occasion across 12 games in domestic competitions and Europe.
The league leaders are performing well in most departments right now - the defence has kept two clean sheets during their winning streak and they have beaten the opposition keeper 11 times.
Goals are coming from all areas with Smalling scoring a winner in Europe, Mata rediscovering the finishing touch of his Chelsea years and Martial off to a flyer after that incredible, jaw-dropping transfer.
And it may just be that United are one of those teams you can rely on week-in week-out, making a smattering of Old Trafford's finest a must for any Fantasy XV.
If that is the case then Mata stands out as the purchase for those in need of a marquee midfielder. The Spaniard looks a clear first choice for van Gaal, starting every game in the Premier League and playing the full 90 minutes on five occasions. Three goals and three assists underline his starring role in the Dutchman's system and an added bonus - and it's quite a big one - is that he has usurped Wayne Rooney as the chief penalty taker.
With Rooney misfiring in attack - well, until last weekend when I dumped him from my Fantasy team - Martial has become the de-facto lead striker at Old Trafford. He took no time finding his feet and three goals in his opening two games means he is now in more than 30% of Fantasy teams. At 8.4m he is probably still a value purchase, however.
United's defence has also been performing with clean sheets in four of their seven Premier League matches but finding an obvious purchase isn't easy. Smalling is among the most expensive defenders in the game, and Danny Blind - a midfielder - is his usual partner at the back. Luke Shaw was serious value until injury curtailed his season. By process of elimination Matteo Darmian is the one then, but his 5.8m price tag is off-putting. Keeper David de Gea is an obvious option for those seeking a first choice no.1.
Maybe though we need to just watch United through these next few games. The tough run will tell us plenty about the 2015-16 vintage and few Fantasy managers will be drawn into making a purchase while the fixture list has such an ugly look.
Those seeking a quick transfer fix this weekend will surely be aware that Manchester City and Chelsea play the next two games at home. Both clubs have had their wobbles of late of course, but City's have been less seismic and with captain Kompany due to return they should get back to winning ways in Gameweek 8.
Chelsea's form is more concerning and it's impossible to rule out more upsets until whatever is wrong at Stamford Bridge finally gets resolved.
