3 FanDuel Premier League Value Plays for Matchweek 31
Value plays are often the difference on the FanDuel leaderboard. Picking values on a small slate can be tougher as roster construction is easier with lower salary levels.
This article is geared towards FanDuel's main slate on Saturday that begins at 11 a.m. EST and features three matches.
|Saturday, March 16th|
|Leicester City at Burnley|
|Newcastle at Bournemouth|
|Huddersfield at West Ham|
Jamie Vardy ($12,000) is the most expensive player on the slate, sitting $1000 more expensive than Salomon Rondon. The only two current expected starters at forward under the normal $9,000 threshold are Chicharito ($8,500) and Dwight McNeil ($7,500), but neither will be profiled in this post. McNeil has produced recently, but Burnley is on a three-game losing streak. Chicharito has appeal simply from playing against Huddersfield.
Three defenders, Fabian Schar, Nathan Ake, and Ben Chilwell, share the top salary of $7,000. There are only 11 defenders at or above $6,000. There are two keepers at or above that threshold with West Ham's Lukasz Fabianski ($6,500) at the top.
Let's look at some value plays across the pitch who will make roster construction even easier and potentially be the difference between winning and losing.
