4 FanDuel Premier League Value Plays for Matchweek 8

Burnley are on a two-match win streak and are favored at home this week, making their goalkeeper an appealing value option.

Value plays are often the difference on the FanDuel leaderboard. The eighth matchweek of the season brings a new high-water mark for individual salary and all of the relegation zone teams are in play.

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

Matchweek 8
Saturday, October 6th
Everton at Leicester City
Huddersfield at Burnley
Bournemouth at Watford
Wolves at Crystal Palace
Cardiff City at Tottenham

Harry Kane ($13,000) is the most expensive player on the slate. Even though that is a new mark for the highest price, there are fewer players priced at or above $9,000 than we usually see. Only 11 forwards or midfielders meet that threshold.

Harry Maguire ($7,500) is one of the most expensive defenders of the year. Fewer than 20 defenders are priced at or above $6,000.

David De Gea ($6,000) is the most expensive keeper, and the gap back to the least expensive expected starter is $2,000.

Now, let's look at some value plays across the pitch who will make roster construction easier and potentially be the difference between winning and losing.
