4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 17

With Tottenham a commanding home favorite versus Burnley, Harry Kane is a terrifying fade despite what's likely to be huge ownership on a slate bereft of other top-six sides. Which other high-priced players should you roster?

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.

Matchweek 17
Saturday, December 15th
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.
