4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 1

With Chelsea a healthy favorite against Huddersfield, Marcos Alonso offers big-time upside. Which other high-priced players should you target on the season-opening main slate?

As is the case when playing any sport on FanDuel, it’s imperative to hit on high-priced studs, the players in which you’ve made the biggest investment. This is especially true with forwards in soccer. Not only are the top-end forwards expensive, they are the ones most likely to put the ball into the back of the net, and goals are often the difference between winning and losing in DFS.

Let’s take a look at some high-priced players -- all across the pitch -- who, despite costing a good chunk of change, are worth the investment.

This article is geared toward FanDuel's main slate, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EST Saturday and features five matches.

Matchweek 1
Saturday, August 11th
Everton at Wolverhampton
Crystal Palace at Fulham
Cardiff City at Bournemouth
Chelsea at Huddersfield
Brighton at Watford

Half of the league is in action on Saturday's main slate, but only one top-six side is playing (Chelsea). With teams having a hectic preseason due to stars playing in the World Cup this summer, it's far from a given that each team will be close to full strength right out of the gates, which could open up value plays across the board. As always, check starting lineups when they're announced.
