4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 25

On a slate with just one big-six side, Ashley Barnes stands out due to his recent form and a nice matchup with Southampton. Which other high-priced players should you go after?

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 Saturday slate, which starts at 10:00 a.m. EST and features six matches.

Matchweek 25
Saturday, February 2nd
Huddersfield at Chelsea
Southampton at Burnley
Watford at Brighton
Fulham at Crystal Palace
Wolves at Everton
Bournemouth at Cardiff City

We've got a six-game main slate, but it contains only one top-six side in Chelsea. Despite the Blues' recent struggles, they're the lone overwhelming favorite on the slate, boasting 85.7% implied win odds, per the FanDuel Sportsbook. They're 2.0-goal favorites with a 2.5-goal implied total, both of which pace the slate by a wide margin. The next-biggest favorites are Crystal Palace (50.0% implied win odds) and Everton (43.5%), with both being a 0.5-goal favorite.

Chelsea will surely be popular, and choosing how you're going to handle them is the first step in roster construction.
