3 FanDuel Premier League Under-the-Radar Plays for Matchweek 11
If you have played daily fantasy sports for a while, you know the importance of being contrarian in large-field tournaments. Recognizing which players are going to be owned by the masses and finding others who you think have a similar point projection but will come at much lower ownership can really separate yourself from your opponents.
The same goes for DFS Premier League. Even though the large-field tournaments aren't quite as large as they are for other sports, there is still value in identifying quality under-the-radar plays.
This article will discuss FanDuel's main Saturday slate, which starts at 11:00 a.m. EST and features six matches.
|Saturday, November 3rd|
|Watford at Newcastle|
|Brighton at Everton|
|Burnley at West Ham|
|Leiciester City at Cardiff|
|Liverpool at Arsenal|
|Tottenham at Wolves|
The 11th main slate of the season is projected to be the most tightly contested set of games to date. The three elite sides in action all have difficult tasks ahead of them, as Liverpool -- with a 50% implied win probability -- have to travel to Arsenal, and Tottenham -- a 45.45% implied win probability -- have to visit Wolves. Everton is the largest favorite on the slate, with a spread of one goal and an implied win probability of just 60.78% at home against Brighton.
Outside of Everton, no team has an implied win probability greater than 58.33%. This should lead to ownership being relatively spread out, with stars like Mohamed Salah ($12,000), and Harry Kane ($13,000) seeing lower ownership than they typically do. Another unique element of this slate is the start time of Tottenham at Wolves, which is 3:45 p.m. This may lower ownership even further on Tottenham's players, especially with the unpredictable nature of their starting lineup of late.
With that in mind, here are three players to consider -- especially for tournament formats -- this weekend as these three may fly under the radar.
