4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 5

An in-form Eden Hazard is in a mouth-watering spot as Chelsea host Cardiff City. Which other top-shelf players can you trust this week?

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 six matches.

Matchweek 5
Saturday, September 15th
Leicester City at Bournemouth
Crystal Palace at Huddersfield
Arsenal at Newcastle United
Cardiff City at Chelsea
Fulham at Manchester City
Manchester United at Watford

We've got two big home favorites in Manchester City and Chelsea, both of whom have great implied win odds -- Chelsea at 83.3% and City at 88.5% -- per Betfair. Outside of those two, ownership should be spread fairly evenly across the rest of the slate. Normally, Manchester United would be a popular target for a fixture at Watford, but given the form of the two teams (Watford is rolling while United have been underwhelming), it's hard to get too geeked about the Red Devils.

Let's get to it.
