4 FanDuel Premier League Players to Avoid in Matchweek 22
Troy Deeney, Forward, Watford
Deeney is tied with Pedro as the fifth-highest priced forward on the slate, and he has averaged 16.61 FanDuel points this season. Deeney has been in great form, as he has scored over 30 FanDuel points in two of his last three starts, recording three goals and one assist over that span.
The Hornets are a slight underdog against the Eagles, and oddsmakers give the match a 58.7% chance of totaling under 2.5 goals. Watford have a 69.7% chance of scoring at least one goal -- something they have accomplished in seven straight matches -- and Deeney has a 27.8% chance of finding the back of the net.
Palace have allowed one or fewer goals in five straight matches -- including matches against Tottenham and Chelsea -- and have conceded more than one goal in just three matches at Selhurst Park this season. The Eagles make it hard for opposing attacks to find scoring opportunities, as they have allowed the seventh-fewest shots (254) to all positions this season.
At $9,500, Deeney -- who scored 9.5 FanDuel points in his previous match against the Eagles -- is just $500 below Jamie Vardy ($10,000) and $2,500 or less behind Roberto Firmino ($12,000) and Aleksandar Mitrovic ($11,000), all of whom are in perceived better matchups.
