To make your task even easier, we have picked three players that we think will have a big bearing on events on Sunday.

Fantasy5live Three to Watch:

Alan Brogan: Brogan missed the win over Laois with a groin injury but the current footballer of the year is back in the Dublin XV for the clash with Mayo. His battle with Donal Vaughan will be key to any Dublin success as will his link up play with Brother Bernard. Alan has scored 0-05 so far in the Championship, one less than keeper Stephen Cluxton.

Alan Dillon: The Mayo man is comfortable with the ball in hand and has a calming presence about him. Dillon’s ability to bring other into play will be crucial especially with Andy Moran missing. The Ballintubber man has scored 0-09, all from play, for Mayo so far in the Championship.

Enda Varley: Varley has drafted into Mayo line up to replace the injured Moran. Moran suffered a knee injury in the win over Down and Varley beat off competition from Alan Freeman to replace the captain. He will hope for a big performance to justify his inclusion and to repay the faith James Horan has shown in him.
