4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 17
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 a.m. EST Saturday and features six matches.
|Newcastle at Huddersfield|
|Burnley at Tottenham|
|Cardiff at Watford|
|Bournemouth at Wolverhampton|
|Leicester City at Crystal Palace|
|West Ham at Fulham|
This slate revolves around Tottenham, the lone top-six side in action. At home to Burnley, Spurs are the largest favorites on the slate by a significant margin, with an implied win probability of 86.67%, per FanDuel Sportsbook. The next closest sides are Watford (61.54% implied win odds) at home against Cardiff, and Wolves (52.38%) at home versus Bournemouth. The three remaining matches are all pickems.
Figuring out how you want to attack Tottenham -- Harry Kane in particular -- is the first task to roster construction this week.
