Winless Sheffield United face Leicester City in the second of four Premier League matches to take place on Sunday.
Kick-off at Bramall Lane is at 14:15 GMT.
With the Friday night game between Aston Villa v Newcastle United postponed, many of us would have been relying on contributions from our bench fodder options to cover for the likes of Jack Grealish (£7.7m) and Callum Wilson (£6.5m).
Rhian Brewster (£4.5m), owned by almost half a million Fantasy Premier League managers, is one of the more popular players who is primed for auto-sub duty but he’ll have to make do with a substitute’s appearance at best this afternoon.
The budget forward is named on the bench for the third match in a row, with Oliver McBurnie (£5.6m) and the ‘out of position’ Oliver Burke (£4.3m) again deployed in attack.
The only change that Chris Wilder has made from the Gameweek 10 defeat at West Bromwich Albion sees John Lundstram (£5.0m) replace Oliver Norwood (£4.7m) in central midfield.
Enda Stevens (£5.2m) and Ethan Ampadu (£4.4m) are still absent, so Kean Bryan (£4.0m) starts again at centre-half.
As for Leicester, Brendan Rodgers has made two alterations from the side that surprisingly lost against Fulham.
Marc Albrighton (£5.3m) and Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) are in for Luke Thomas (£4.3m) and Dennis Praet (£5.5m).
There is again no place in the starting XI for Harvey Barnes (£6.9m), despite his goalscoring contribution as a substitute last Monday.
Having got just under an hour of game-time under his belt against Zorya on Thursday, Wilfred Ndidi (£4.8m) is also among the replacements in the visitors’ dugout.
James Justin (£4.9m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) are by some distance the most-owned players involved in this fixture, sitting in 23.8% and 30.2% of FPL squads respectively.
Vardy’s away form has been scintillating in 2020/21, with nine of his 11 attacking returns and over 80% of his FPL points coming on the road.
Sheffield United XI: Ramsdale, Basham, Egan, Bryan, Baldock, Lundstram, Berge, Fleck, Lowe, Burke, McBurnie.
Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Justin, Evans, Fofana, Fuchs, Mendy, Tielemans, Albrighton, Maddison, Perez, Vardy.
