Positional Breakdown


The obvious spot to target on this slate is Liverpool. They'll face Burnley at home, who sit in 19th place in the league.

Darwin Nunez ($23, -115 anytime goal scoring odds) has the best chance of scoring on the team and has huge upside if he can convert on his chances. He infamously hit the post four times a few games ago and is fifth in the league in expected goals (xG).

The other two Liverpool forwards are definitely great plays as well. Diogo Jota ($21, +120) might be my favorite option of the three with salary considered; he has four goals and two assists in his last game. Luis Diaz ($20, +165) is the most affordable of the three and showed his upside with a goal and an assist two games ago against Chelsea.

The second biggest favorites on this slate are Tottenham at home against Brighton. Son Heung-Min ($21, -105) is back from the Asian Cup and should be able to start. Despite missing some time away at the tournament, he's fourth in the EPL in goal contributions with 17.

James Maddison ($23, +180) has played two games since returning from injury and has over 25 FanDuel points in both. Either or both of these guys are worth getting a piece of on Spurs. You should also consider Timo Werner ($16, +155) -- either in stacks of Tottenham or as a one-off.

Surprisingly, Luton Town are also one of the bigger favorites on the slate. They'll probably go overlooked since they aren't big names. Ross Barkley ($20, +330) has been on fire, with at least 23.7 fantasy points in his last five games. He topped out at 55.6 points last week against Newcastle with a goal and an assist.

He's not the only Luton player to consider. Elijah Adebayo ($19, +175) has scored four goals in his last two games while Carlton Morris ($18, +145) has the best anytime goal odds on the team. Luton get to face Sheffield United, who have allowed the most expected goals and actual goals in the league.

Andreas Pereira ($19, +340) doesn't have great goal scoring odds but has 23 crosses in his last three matches. Fulham are a home favorite against Bournemouth, so there should be opportunities for him to get crosses into the box.

Like Son, Hwang Hee-Chan ($18, +185) returns from the Asian Cup and is a great value if he gets the start. If he doesn't, Pablo Sarabia ($16, +260) likely will, and he becomes a player you can use.

Added time -- There are some value options that we can consider that will have decent chances to contribute to a goal. Some of those guys are Miguel Almiron ($15, +165 to score or assist), Callum Hudson-Odoi ($15, +195), Bobby De Cordova-Reid ($15, +180) and Luis Sinisterra ($14, +170).

Another value option that could open up is Danilo ($13, +330). He likely would take over a lot of set pieces for Nottingham Forest if Morgan Gibbs-White is unable to play. Keep in mind that this is in the late game, so you won't know the lineup until players from all other games lock.


We have probably the two best fantasy defenders on the slate in Kieran Trippier ($17, +210 to score or assist) and Trent Alexander-Arnold ($16, -105). With the $1 discount, the better matchup, and better odds for a goal contribution, TAA is definitely the preferred option.

Trippier is the only player in the league that has more crosses than Alfie Doughty ($13, +155). He has hit a high of 20 crosses in a match this season and would make a lot of sense to play with one of the Luton forward/midfield players that we like.

Neco Williams ($11, +380) has an underrated floor; he's averaging more than five crosses and five tackles per 90 minutes. He is also a candidate to take more set pieces if Morgan Gibbs-White doesn't play.

Sergio Reguilon ($10, +470) had a solid first start for Brentford against Manchester City on Monday, which included five crosses. His team should see more of the ball against Wolves in this game, which would allow him to get even more crosses. Mads Roerslev ($9, +550) is also an option as the other Brentford full back.

Added time -- If we are targeting players who could get some defensive stats, Vitinho ($10) for Burnley could be my favorite. He has a lot of tackles and interceptions which likely will continue against Liverpool and will also cross if his team has the chance to attack.

Ben Osborn ($8) is listed as expected starter and is really more of a midfielder. If he does get the start, he's a plug-and-play in lineups where you need the salary.


It's no shock that Allison Becker ($14) is the top goalie on the slate. Liverpool have by far the best odds to win and are -110 to keep a clean sheet. Burnley have scored the second-fewest goals in the league while also creating the second-fewest xG.

It's hard to justify any other keepers around Allison's salary with the odds being so much better for Liverpool than any other team. If you need to save salary, Neto ($9) is an option I like despite being an underdog. Fulham have scored in just two of their last seven EPL games.

Wes Foderingham ($8) faces Luton Town, who have been scoring a lot lately. However, they are the third-worst team in xG, and if they revert back to their previous form, Foderingham is an excellent value.

Added time -- This strategy isn't for the faint of heart, but playing the keeper who is on the biggest underdog has merit. If James Trafford ($7) concedes three goals but also makes six saves for Burnley, there's a chance he could be the best value at the position. Sometimes, keepers facing a ton of shot volume have excellent upside.
