4 FanDuel Premier League Studs to Target for Matchweek 27

On a slate without much star power, Joao Moutinho's sparkling form puts him in play. Which other high-priced 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 cover FanDuel's main Saturday slate, which starts at 10:00 a.m. EST and features only three matches due to a wonky Premier League schedule for this weekend.

Matchweek 27
Saturday, February 23rd
Huddersfield at Newcastle
Wolves at Bournemouth
Crystal Palace at Leicester City

Well, things won't get weirder than this for the rest of the season. Due to a slew of factors -- Carabao Cup Final on Sunday, European play midweek and Friday EPL action -- the Saturday main slate has just three matches. The biggest favorites of the bunch are Newcastle, who carry implied win odds of 53.5%, per FanDuel Sportsbook, in their home match against Huddersfield. Both of the other two matches are listed at pick'ems.

It's going to be a funky slate, but it's also a chance to roster some guys who aren't usually on the DFS radar.
