3 FanDuel Premier League Under-the-Radar Plays for Matchweek 14
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 10:00 a.m. EST and features six matches.
|Saturday, December 1st|
|Bournemouth at Manchester City|
|Brighton at Huddersfield|
|Burnley at Crystal Palace|
|Watford at Leicester City|
|West Ham at Newcastle|
|Manchester United at Southampton|
The 14th main slate of the season features two teams from Manchester, both of which are coming off middling results in the Champions League on Tuesday. Following their draw with Lyon, Manchester City are the largest favorites on the slate, with an implied win probability of 90.91% at home against Bournemouth. Manchester United are the third-largest favorites on the slate, with an implied win probability of just 54.55% on the road against Southampton.
Following their draw with Manchester United last weekend, Crystal Palace are the second-largest favorites on the slate, with an implied win probability of 63.64% at home against Burnley. The remaining matches are all projected to be tight contests, with the three home sides, Huddersfield, Leicester City and Newcastle, all slightly favored.
With Manchester City in an excellent spot and Manchester United the only other notable team in action, ownership will be through the roof on the Citizens. That said, fading them is ill-advised with so few elite options available.
With that in mind, here are three players to consider this weekend -- especially for tournament formats -- as these three may fly under the radar.
