4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 2

Tottenham are big 1.5-goal favorites at home versus Fulham, making their stars top plays this week. Which other high-cost players should you target in Matchweek 2?

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 in 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 2
Saturday, August 18th
Wolves at Leicester City
Bournemouth at West Ham
Fulham at Tottenham
Southampton at Everton
Arsenal at Chelsea

Half of the league is in action on Saturday's main slate, and three top-six sides are playing. 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, which could open up value plays across the board. As always, check starting lineups when they're announced.

Spurs are the slate's biggest favorite, installed as a 1.5-goal favorite at home versus newly-promoted Fulham, and their 2.25-goal implied total is a slate-high mark. Outside of Tottenham, no other team is more than a 0.5-goal favorite.

Let's get to it.
