4 FanDuel Premier League Players to Avoid in Matchweek 20
Alexandre Lacazette, Forward, Arsenal
Lacazette is the fourth-highest priced forward on the slate, and he has averaged 16.59 FanDuel points this season. Lacazette has provided an assist in three straight matches, averaging 14.53 FanDuel points over that span, but has only reached the 20 point mark once in his last seven matches and has not scored over 18 FanDuel points without scoring a goal this season.
The Gunners are a large underdog against the Reds, and oddsmakers give the match a 64.3% chance of totaling over 2.5 goals. Arsenal have, per oddsmakers, a 66.2% chance of scoring at least one goal -- something they have accomplished in all nine away matches this season -- and Lacazette has a 29.4% chance of finding the back of the net.
The Reds have allowed just two goals this season on their home pitch -- the fewest in the Premier League this season -- and have been stingy on defense. They have allowed the allowed the second-second-fewest shots (155) and fewest chances created (106) to all positions this season.
In the marquee match of the weekend, Lacazette may have a difficult time against the current table leaders while Harry Kane ($13,500) is clearly the top play. DFS players should be able to find value at the forward position as Aleksandar Mitrovic ($9,500) -- who has played better on his home pitch -- and Jamie Vardy ($9,000) are both in perceived plus matchups
