3 FanDuel Premier League Under-the-Radar Plays for Matchweek 28
If you have played daily fantasy sports for a while, you know the importance of being contrarian in large-field tournaments. Recognizing which players are going to be owned by the masses and finding others who you think have a similar point projection but will come at much lower ownership can really separate yourself from your opponents.
The same goes for DFS Premier League. Even though the large-field tournaments aren't quite as large as they are for other sports, there is still value in identifying quality under-the-radar plays.
This article will discuss FanDuel's main Wednesday slate, which starts at 2:45 p.m. EST and features six matches.
|Saturday, March 2nd|
|Bournemouth at Arsenal|
|Fulham at Southampton|
|Watford at Liverpool|
|Manchester United at Crystal Palace|
|West Ham at Manchester City|
|Tottenham at Chelsea|
In stark contrast to the 27th main slate of the season, which featured no elite sides, the 28th main slate of the season features all six. Of the six, Manchester City is the largest favorite, with an implied win probability of 88.24% at home against West Ham. Liverpool is the second-largest favorite on the slate, with an implied win probability of 79.59% at home against Watford, and Arsenal is the third-largest, with an implied win probability of 71.43% at home against Bournemouth. The fourth-largest favorite on the slate is Southampton, who have an implied win probability of 53.49% at home against Fulham. An injury-plagued Manchester United are slight road favorites against Crystal Palace and an out-of-form Chelsea are slight home favorites against Tottenham.
With the exception of Chelsea and Tottenham, all of the elite sides are in a position to produce on Wednesday. Even with their injury situation, it would come as a surprise to no one if Manchester United dominated Crystal Palace on the road. With all six elite sides in action, there is an overwhelming number of options available at the top end of each position. In terms of ownership, Manchester City and Liverpool should carry the highest levels, followed by Arsenal and Manchester United.
With that in mind, here are three players to consider this weekend -- especially for tournament formats -- who may fly under the radar.
