4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 22

Trent Alexander-Arnold has seized free-kick duties and is in a money spot on Saturday with Liverpool a big favorite over Brighton. Which other high-cost players should you build around?

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 10:00 a.m. EST and features six matches.

Matchweek 22
Saturday, January 12th
Fulham at Burnley
Huddersfield at Cardiff City
Watford at Crystal Palace
Southampton at Leicester City
Liverpool at Brighton
Newcastle at Chelsea

With the festive season behind us and teams coming off a break, we should see the best starting XIs for most sides.

Chelsea and Liverpool are this slate's big favorites. The Blues carry implied win odds of 82.1%, per the FanDuel Sportsbook, for their home date with Newcastle while Liverpool's implied win odds are 76.7%. Both Chelsea and Liverpool are 1.5-goal favorites with 2.25-goal implied totals. No other sides on the slate are more than a 0.5-goal favorite.
