4 FanDuel Premier League Players to Avoid in Matchweek 2

With Leicester favored at home, Harry Maguire's floor is pretty scary this week. Which other players should you avoid in Matchweek 2?

FanDuel’s main slate for Matchweek 2, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EST on Saturday, features five matches, with three clubs -- Tottenham, Chelsea, and Arsenal --- that are odds-on favorites to finish in the top six while Everton is projected to finish just outside the top six. The slate's late match should also be the most intriguing as Arsenal visit Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.

As with any DFS sport, it is imperative to have your players, especially the high-priced studs, live up to their price tag. When investing in any player, it is important to determine who will likely contribute in FanDuel's emphasized areas (goals, assists, and shots on target). It's also just as crucial not to overspend on players in bad matchups.

We should try to take advantage of the teams -- and players -- who play especially well either home or away, while also looking at oddsmakers' favorites and over/under totals. Due to the World Cup this summer, DFS players, as always, should check out injury reports and confirmed starting XI's when they become available since some players may be rested.

Let's take a look at four players across the entire pitch who should be avoided.
