3 FanDuel Premier League Under-the-Radar Plays for Matchweek 32
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 Saturday slate, which starts at 11:00 a.m. EST and features six matches.
|Saturday, March 30th|
|Bournemouth at Leiciester City|
|Huddersfield at Crystal Palace|
|Watford at Manchester United|
|Southampton at Brighton|
|Wolves at Burnley|
|Everton at West Ham|
The 32nd main slate of the season features a single elite side in Manchester United. The Red Devils are the largest favorites on the slate, with an implied win probability of 70.59% at home against Watford. Crystal Palace is the next-closest favorite, with an implied win probability of 69.70% at home against Huddersfield. Rounding out the favorites is Leicester City, who have an implied win probability of 55.56% at home against Bournemouth. The other half of the slate features three slight favorites in pick em' matches. Brighton and West Ham are the slightest of home favorites against Southampton and Everton respectively, while Wolves is a slight favorite on the road against Burnley.
Over the past two seasons, there have been numerous slates with a similar set up to this one, but with Manchester City as the lone elite side. Despite being in the midst of their first losing streak under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's watch, Manchester United have finally returned to a level where their ownership in this situation will rival what Manchester City's was in previous slates. Paul Pogba ($9,500), Marcus Rashford ($11,000), and, if he plays, Anthony Martial ($9,000) will command the highest levels of ownership, making other options on the Red Devils, such as Jesse Lingard ($8,000) and Ander Herrera ($6,000) worth considering for large-field tournaments.
With that in mind, here are three players to consider this weekend -- especially for tournament formats -- who may fly under the radar.
