With this weekend's three provincial finals to count towards Fantasy GAA points, it's another chance for managers to gain ground on their rivals.

Monaghan's prolific forward Conor McManus heads the list of this week's top picks as his side look to win back the Ulster title that they relinquished to Sunday's opponents Donegal last year.

Michael Murphy is an obvious threat to Monaghan's hopes and he is also expected to score well.

Cillian O'Connor is likely to have a major say in the Connacht decider and Mayo will be relying on him.

In Munster, Kerry will be looking for major improvements in their final replay against Cork, and Bryan Sheehan could well be the difference in Killarney.

Meanwhile, Tipperary's George Hannigan has knocked John McGrath off top spot of the county players' league for the first time and now holds a 27-point lead over the Wicklow man.
