4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 21

With Chelsea a big home favorite versus Southampton, Marcos Alonso offers a mouth-watering ceiling. Which other high-priced players should you target on Wednesday?

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 will discuss FanDuel's main Wednesday slate, which starts at 2:45 p.m. EST and features six matches.
