4 FanDuel Premier League Players to Avoid in Matchweek 24
This article is geared towards FanDuel's main slate, which begins at 2:45 p.m. EST Saturday and features six matches. The slate features five top-10 clubs, and is capped when Newcastle host Manchester City, with the Citizens a -600 favorite on FanDuel’s Sportsbook, which puts their implied win probability at 85.7%.
As with any DFS sport, it is imperative to have your players, especially the high-priced studs, live up to their price tag. When investing in any player, it is important to determine who will likely contribute in FanDuel's emphasized areas (goals, assists, and shots on target). It's also just as crucial not to overspend on players in bad matchups.

With some players playing FA Cup and Carabao Cup matches last week, DFS players, as always, should check out injury reports and confirmed starting XI's when they become available since some players may be rested.
Let's take a look at four players across the entire pitch who should be avoided.
