4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 18

Playing at home against Leicester, Eden Hazard could produce a ceiling game. Which other high-priced players should you lean on?

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 seven matches.

Matchweek 18
Saturday, December 22nd
Watford at West Ham
Crystal Palace at Manchester City
Leicester City at Chelsea
Southampton at Huddersfield
Brighton at Bournemouth

Manchester City are the largest favorite on the slate, with implied win odds of 88.89%, per FanDuel Sportsbook. City have a slate-best 3.0-goal implied total and, as usual, will be popular. The next two biggest favorites are Chelsea (76.19% implied win odds) and Manchester United (64.28%). Chelsea are a 1.5-goal favorite, and United are a 1.0-goal favorite. Outside of those sides, no other teams are more than a 0.5-goal favorite.
