Michail Antonio (DraftKings: $9,300, FanDuel: $22)
Jarrod Bowen (DraftKings: $7,900, FanDuel: $16)
The theme of attacking Leeds United’s defense continues on a smaller slate. Leeds sits at the bottom of the EPL, with 2.05 expected goals against per match. They are worse at home compared to the road, with a split of 6.2 expected goals to 4.3 on the year. West Ham has been on a roll this season, with four multi-goal matches in seven games. The lead catalyst of the scoring is Michail Antonio.
Antonio averages 4.25 shots per match, with an on-target accuracy clip of 41.2%. He is a brace threat and contributes on 63.63% of West Ham’s scoring. He is not the most expensive forward but is a clear play based on matchup to Jamie Vardy. For cheap exposure to the West Ham stack, we look to Jarrod Bowen. Bowen has a floor with indirect set shares on his side of the field. His speed is idea for the counterpunches against Leeds and averages 4.79 scoring chances created per match. His 1.88 shots per match gives him scoring upside. He averages over six crosses per match and adds value with a couple drawn fouls.
Ismaila Sarr (DraftKings: $10,000, FanDuel: $21)
Joshua King (DraftKings: $5,300, FanDuel: $19)
Watford has a plus matchup against another terrible defense in Newcastle. Newcastle has allowed 2.26 expected goals per match, and they are worse on the road than at home. This is a game Watford will look to win if they want to avoid relegation later in the season. Ismaila Sarr leads the home side, with a floor and upside.
Sarr comes with a high price, and that should not turn ownership away. He averages 2.6 shots per match and over three crosses per match. He is a great play on FanDuel considering his volume and 61% on-target accuracy. Sarr has contributed on 50% of Watford’s scoring and done so by way of goals.
Joshua King is too cheap for the matchup. He has no floor but provides scoring upside with the deliveries Sarr and Emmanuel Dennis provide up front. King is averaging 1.15 shots per match, which is concerning, but the salary allows for fitting in any West Ham and Watford players. Dennis averages 2.89 scoring chances per match and 2.44 shots per match. In GPP across both sites there is a case for taking Dennis over Sarr as a leverage play considering their similar stat lines and price discounts.
Other Options: Allan Saint-Maximin (DraftKings $8,300, FanDuel $19), Jamie Vardy (DraftKings $9,600, FanDuel $22), Marc Albrighton (DraftKings $7,700, FanDuel $16), Mohamed Salah (FanDuel $23), Andros Townsend (DraftKings $10,700, FanDuel $18), Teemu Pukki (DraftKings $5,600, FanDuel $18)
Aaron Cresswell (DraftKings: $5,500, FanDuel: $11)
Aaron Cresswell handles the indirect shares on his side of the pitch, but his is more of a floor play. He can contribute on defense with two won tackles/interceptions, which bolds well against a Leeds club that stretches the play and is not particularly accurate on outlet passes. His averages two created chances and over three crosses per match.
Other Options: Trent Alexander-Arnold (FanDuel $15), Matthew Lowton (DraftKings $4,200, FanDuel $10), Max Aarons (DraftKings $4,100, FanDuel $10)
Ben Foster (DraftKings: $5,100, FanDuel: $10)
Nick Pope (DraftKings: $3,700, FanDuel: $8)
