During the
season our regular feature will detail whose value is rising and falling.

Look away
now if you took the Fantasist's advice and loaded up on Aston Villa players this
week - they pack the 'down' section, although there is still time to rectify
the situation with Tuesday's game against Wigan.

UP

Florent Malouda (MF, Chelsea, 16.41) +5.39

Malouda was
sensational against West Ham - one goal and two assists sees his value rocket.

Fernando Torres (FW, Liverpool, 21.81) +5.18

The
Liverpool hitman is back in the goals - and assists. Two of each means a bumper
week for the Spaniard.

Alberto Aquilani (MF, Liverpool, 8.64) +4.66

Finally
Aquilani came good with a goal and an assist in the Reds' 4-1 thumping of Portsmouth.

Wayne Rooney (FW, Manchester United, 27.05)

There's no
stopping Rooney who weighed in with another two goals in United's win over
Fulham.

Nani (MF, Manchester United, 15.08) +3.94

An assist
and two intercepted passes for the Portuguese proved what he is capable of.

Marcus Hahnemann (GK, Wolves, 11.28) +3.22

Eight saves
from the keeper kept Burnley at bay and help secure three points for Wolves.

Alex (DF, Chelsea, 10.19) +2.84

The Brazilian
defender was on the scoresheet in the win over West Ham and put in a solid
performance at the back.

Didier Drogba (FW, Chelsea, 26.13) +2.79

Drog just
keeps on scoring - two more came against West Ham.

Ryan Babel (MF, Liverpool, 6.40) +2.77

Like Nani,
Babel also gave a glimpse of what he can do when he puts his mind to it with a
goal against Pompey.

Brad Friedel (GK, Aston Villa, 14.72) +2.70

Friedel was
the one Villa player to stand out in the goalless bore draw at Stoke.

DOWN

Stewart Downing (MF, Aston Villa, 10.62) -3.70

The first
of four Villa players to feature in this section, Downing did little at the
Britannia Stadium.

Gabriel Agbonlahor
(FW, Aston Villa, 11.58) -3.54

Ditto
Agbonlahor, who was frustrated by a resolute Stoke defence.

Petr Cech (GK,
Chelsea, 11.13) -3.49

Cech's value
is readjusted after having missed out on Chelsea's game against West Ham with
injury.

Papa Bouba Diop (MF, Portsmouth, 1.39) -3.37

After an
uninspiring display against Liverpool, the midfielder is now one of the
cheapest players in the game.

Ashley Young (MF, Aston Villa, 12.22) -3.37

Another of
Villa's attacking contingent to draw blanks at Stoke.

Chris Kirkland (GK, Wigan, 2.10) -2.95

When a
keeper lets in four goals, it comes as no surprise to see his value will
plummet.

James Milner (MF, Aston Villa, 12.63) -2.82

Just two
free-kicks and a corner won for the England man. At least he's now affordable.

Emerson Boyce (DF, Wigan, 8.99) -2.48

Boyce pays
the price for being at the heart of the defence that shipped four against
Bolton at the Reebok.

Paul Robinson (GK, Blackburn, 4.33) -2.28

Injured and
forced off against Spurs after just 25 minutes, the Blackburn keeper is cheap
as chips once again.

Theo Walcott (MF, Arsenal, 8.42) -2.26

What a difference a
week makes - top of the positive movers last week, Walcott makes it into this
section after this week after failing to impress against Hull.
