4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 16

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is pouring in goals for an in-form Arsenal, and he has a sublime home matchup versus Huddersfield. Which other high-priced players should you look to on Saturday?

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 towards FanDuel's main slate, which begins at 10:00 a.m. EST Saturday and features seven matches.

Matchweek 16
Saturday, December 8th
Crystal Palace at West Ham
Huddersfield at Arsenal
Southampton at Cardiff
Brighton at Burnley
Fulham at Manchester United
Manchester City at Chelsea
Tottenham at Leicester

This slate features five of the top-six teams, with the Manchester City-Chelsea clash being the headliner. Arsenal and Manchester United are the two biggest favorites, with the Gunners' slate-high 79.6% implied win odds, per FanDuel Sportsbook, narrowly edging United's 75.6% implied win odds. Both are listed as 1.5-goal home favorites and will be teams to zero in on.

Elsewhere, no other sides are more than a 0.5-goal favorite. Remarkably, City (53.5%) own the next-best implied win odds despite a tough road matchup at Chelsea, with Spurs (51.2%) not far behind for their road fixture at Leicester.

As always, it's imperative to check starting lineups when they are released an hour before kickoff, and that's especially true for this slate as teams are coming off midweek league action.
