It's appropriate that as Christmas approaches, you update your wish list for your fantasy Premier League team.
While you're limited to a fixed budget, it makes sense to try to predict what the perfect lineup would look like as you can try to add as many of the likely standout performers as possible and fill in with some cheaper options set to provide points.
Using a 3-4-3 formation, here's what could potentially be the fantasy team of the week for Matchday 15. The players' respective values are in parentheses and courtesy of ESPN FC's fantasy league.
G: Simon Mignolet (6.3)
The only major concern here is that Liverpool won't be able to keep the clean sheet. The Reds have just one in their last 11 league matches, per OptaJoe:

Playing West Ham, though, you could see Liverpool maintaining the clean sheet. That would mean big points for Simon Mignolet.
D: John Terry (7.4), Steven Caulker (5.5), Daniel Agger (6.8)
Stoke City have scored five goals in seven home matches. With Chelsea's organized defense, you can count on John Terry getting the points for a clean sheet. Plus, with the Blues' difficulties scoring, they may need a Terry goal from a set piece to provide the breakthrough.
Steven Caulker had a great game against the Potters on Wednesday, clearing everything out of the box and helping Cardiff earn a 0-0 draw. That spells good things for the centre-back when the Bluebirds take on Crystal Palace, who will be playing the same kind of direct, vertical football Stoke utilized.
Much of what was said about Mignolet applies to Daniel Agger. As long as the Danish centre-back and his fellow defenders don't have any brain farts at the back, Liverpool should be good for the clean sheet.
M: Aaron Ramsey (8.7), Morgan Amalfitano (6.2), Eden Hazard (8.9), Yaya Toure (9.8)
The selection of Aaron Ramsey should need little explanation. He's put up an ungodly amount of fantasy points this season, and until he stops, just keep putting him in the squad.
Less of a sure thing would certainly be Morgan Amalfitano. Although he's remained a steady presence in West Brom's midfield, he's not what you'd think of as an elite fantasy midfielder. Against the porous Norwich City back line, Amalfitano could be due for a standout performance, similar to his Matchday 6 showing against Manchester United.
Eden Hazard was brilliant against Sunderland on Wednesday. He's been the most consistent attacker on Chelsea. Although Stoke City are tough to break down at home, Hazard demonstrated that when he's on, nobody can stop him.
Much like Manchester City as a whole, Yaya Toure generally plays up or down to the opponent. He can disappear against lesser opposition and look like a titan against the best in Europe. Southampton is a tough test for City, and Toure will rise to the occasion.
F: Robin van Persie (10.7), Luis Suarez (10.5), Christian Benteke (7.8)
Wayne Rooney will be suspended for Manchester United's match with Newcastle after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season. That means Robin van Persie will be tasked with even more of the scoring duties. If United get on the score sheet, it will likely be RVP's doing.
Luis Suarez may be the most in-form striker in England. He scored four against Norwich and added an assist. With Daniel Sturridge still out with an injury, Liverpool will continue relying on the Uruguayan to bang in the goals.
The wild-card selection here is Christian Benteke. The Belgian forward has gone eight games without a goal. He's too good to have this drought continue for much longer, and getting benched against Southampton may have lit a fire in him. Plus, Aston Villa get Fulham, so Benteke could get plenty of chances in front of goal if he starts.
