4 FanDuel Premier League Players to Avoid in Matchweek 3

Liverpool, owners of the largest implied total, will be a popular target this weekend, but Roberto Firmino's recent form makes him a risky option. Which other players should you avoid for Matchweek 3?

FanDuel’s main slate for Matchweek 3, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EST on Saturday, features five matches, with three of the four clubs -- Arsenal, West Ham, and Huddersfield --- who have yet to pick up a point in the first two matchweeks . The slate's late match sees Brighton visit Anfield to face Liverpool, and the Reds boast the slate’s largest implied total at 2.75 goals.

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. 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.
