It seems like every time we do one of these breakdowns, we’re onto a new country’s league, from Mexico to Turkey to Australia. Hopefully this one is able to stick around for a little longer than anticipated. Anyway, this should be very interesting with some quality players on either side of the ball in this league. Enjoy soccer DFS with this beauty of a showdown. Please be financially responsible with your expendable income given our current state.
For those in Slack, you know Jovani (Jv882221). He’s been awesome helping out with the various leagues around the world. He contributed to this particular write-up with the player-picks listed below. A lot of our thoughts are in congruency. Give him a follow on Twitter here. You can also follow me if you have any questions @tristanhoh. I’m here to help.
Dimitri Petratos $11,000 DraftKings – The floor Petratos brings to the table should be put on display here at home in a tight match. Newcastle is an underdog, but Petratos has scored double digits in every game this season and that trend should continue.
Craig Noone $10,200 DraftKings – Melbourne’s majority share set piece taker is neck and neck with Petratos for strongest floor in this match. It’s fairly easy to fit both, so we should just do so in most lineups.
Jamie MacLaren $7,800 DraftKings – DraftKings fluked this price. This match should have goals from both sides and the A-League’s top scorer deserves to be over $10,000. He rifles shots at will and is likely to be the chalkiest player on the slate, and for good reason.
Markel Susaeta $7,000 DraftKings – lines up as right midfielder and right wing. He has done damage at right wing as of late, notching a goal and an assist last start. He is not goal dependent, however, with 20 crosses, 10 assisted shots and 10 fouls drawn this season. With defensive mids and key defensemen out between both teams, this looks like it could be a higher-scoring affair than last meeting and Markel has been involved in the attack. The price is unquestionably too low as DraftKings has made a fluke in a few of Melbourne’s prices.
Bobby Burns $6,400 DraftKings – Burns is a defender that slots in more of a left mid role, pushes up on offense and also has a safe floor. He has over 10 interceptions, 20 fouls drawn, 75 crosses and 20 assisted shots this season. He also doesn’t need goals or assists to hit value and I don’t expect it from him, but if he contributes to the scoring, then the price is criminal.
Scott Jameison $5,000 DraftKings – He is a defender that contributes in a number of ways with 45 crosses, 10 assisted shots, 25 fouls drawn and 10 shots this season. 30 fouls committed is a bit of a worry against pressure up the flank from Miller, but his price is too low for what he brings to the table.
