Forwards/ Midfielders

Raphinha (DraftKings: $9,900)

Leeds United plays host to a Newcastle side that has trouble keeping the ball out of the net. Newcastle allows 1.71 expected goals and 4.80 shots against per match. They rank dead last in the EPL with 5% clean sheets kept. This match has the highest over total of 2.5 at -200 (BetMGM). Raphinha leads the home side in shot volume and goals scored. He contributes on 41.6% of the club’s overall scoring and he creates a club leading 3.94 created scoring chances per match. Raphinha’s floor is built on 5.53 crosses per match. He is a core play, and his ownership would reflect that. The attackers around are Jack Harrison and Daniel James. Harrison will draw ownership coming off a pair of spectacular performances, while James offers an over $1,000 discount and averages almost one shot more per match.

Jarrod Bowen (DraftKings: $9,500)

Bruno Fernandes (DraftKings: $8,700)

The second-highest match total on the slate is a battle between potent offenses when Manchester United host West Ham United. Manchester United will see the greater ownership pointed towards Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo. Fernandes has found form with back-to-back multi-goal contribution matches and a salary under $9,000. He evenly distributes via shot volume and assisted shots to the tune of 4.8 per match. Ronaldo is a 2 scoring threat that sees a rare price of $8,000. They are both cash game considerations.

Jarrod Bowen will be the main target. He has a price as high as Raphinha and will be passed up for the discount on Fernandes and the favored number on the odds market. Bowen handles sets on his half of the pitch and does well to carry the offensive weight for a West Ham side that sits top four in the EPL in expected goals and total goals scored. He isatop the club’s volume list with Michail Antonio at over 2.5 shots per match and builds a floor on 4.66 crosses and 3.20 created scoring chances per match. Antonio is the goal hunting threat, sitting atop the club’s scoring sheet, while leading in created chances and coming in at $7,800 on the salary.

Raul Jimenez (DraftKings: $6,000)

Wolverhampton travel to take on Brentford in a match that has a low total of just 1.5 goals. The defense will be a main target, while the offenses will flow to the above-mentioned matches. Raul Jimenez is a goal hunting option for Wolverhampton and handles the penalties. He averages 1.84 shots per match and has had a down year returning from a head injury a season ago. His volatility should he not find the back of the net makes him a GPP option for salary relief to fit in a mix of the main targets above. Other GPP fliers come in the form of Francisco Trincao and Joao Mountinho. Trincao does well to mix his DFS output with 1.92 shots, 2.12 crosses and 2.98 won tackles and interceptions per match. His salary is near min price with upside coming from his 2.6 scoring chances created per match which ranks second overall on the club’s sheet. Mountinho is a consistent producer. His numbers are not flashy, but he takes some shares of indirect sets and does well in the middle of the pitch with 3.86 won tackles and interceptions to add to his 2.99 crosses per match.

Other Options: Allan Saint-Maximin (DraftKings: $7,900), Chris Wood (DraftKings: $4,600), Mason Greenwood (DraftKings: $7,700), Vitaly Janelt (DraftKings: $4,200)


Kieran Trippier (DraftKings: $6,000)

Newcastle has a road match up against Leeds United, who commits the fourth most fouls in the EPL at 11.8 per match. This would set up indirect free kicks for Newcastle and give plenty of cross chances to Kieran Trippier. He also looks to handle the corner sets and saw five attempts in his first outing against a Watford side that commits the most fouls in the EPL. Trippier does not need goal contributions to hit value with won tackles and interceptions that should see an uptick against the stretch passes of the Leeds attack. He has the floor and is a GPP option leverage over the ownership Rayan Ait-Nouri and Stuart Dallas will draw.

Other Options: Stuart Dallas (DraftKings: $5,600), Vladimir Coufal (DraftKings: $4,500), Conor Coady (DraftKings: $3,400), Alex Telles (DraftKings: $5,300)
