Euro 2020 DFS Picks: Fantasy Soccer | July 7
These are listed in order of what are the top plays, including median projection, floor and upside.
Euro DFS Picks: Captain
Jens Stryger Larsen (DraftKings: $8,700, FanDuel: $5)
England comes in as the favored side against Denmark in this semifinal matchup. The issue with England is the asking prices on their key players are high. Denmark has been no push over, with the exception of their first match, which cannot really be held against them. Jens Stryger Larsen handles the sets on the wing and comes in at a low price. On FanDuel he is defense only.
Larsen has two full-match runs and is not likely to see the full 90. He can do enough damage in his game run with a floor built on crossing volume to the average of 8.5 per match. He has not been asked to defend, but should he have to, he averages 1.71 won tackles/interceptions per match. His clear attempts fall short of two per match for his club side in a battle-tested Serie A competition. He is a Flex play for cash games, but in GPP he is worth a flier with a floor, goal contribution and salary relief.
Jadon Sancho (DraftKings: $13,200, FanDuel: $11)
England finally is on a scoring surge fans have waited for. They are scoring a full goal more than expected on average in their last two matches. If looking to spread the offensive attack, Jadon Sancho is a creator that can get involved in the goal scoring. In cash the goal-hunting Captain is Harry Kane. He also will garner the highest ownership at the Flex spot. Kane at the captain spot seems too salary constricted. He brings brace upside, but Denmark is a far more disciplined team than Germany and Ukraine.
Sancho underwhelmed in his first match of the Euros. His price is more reasonable this time around and is too cheap for a guy that posted 19 goal contributions for Dortmund in 24 starts. He averages 2.23 shots per match and 5.46 created chances. The lack of on-target accuracy still is a concern at 29.4%, so on FanDuel it looks more like Kane or Raheem Sterling for goal hunting.
Euro DFS Picks: Flex
Luke Shaw (DraftKings: $8,400, FanDuel: $11)
Mason Mount (DraftKings: $9,600, FanDuel: $12)
The set piece men for England are Luke Shaw and Mason Mount. Given the price, consider splitting the exposure with a lean to Shaw. With the exception of Ukraine match, the two seem to cannibalize the others upside. Rostering both limits the scoring threats above with the salary.
Shaw has taken the greater share of sets, and his presence on the wing opens crossing volume. Mount can draw fouls and creates 5.08 scoring chances for his club, Chelsea. Mount in the midfield can handle defensive tasks and averaged 3.46 won tackles/interceptions. His metrics fall back a bit with England to 2.67 chances created and 2.33 interceptions/won tackles per match. Shaw drops from 3.76 chances created and 3.05 won tackles/interceptions at club level to 2.70 chances and 2.7 defensive metrics. In cash both are fine for the floor; in GPP it has to be one or the other.
Kasper Dolberg (DraftKings: $8,000, FanDuel: $12)
Kasper Dolberg is the goal-hunting option for Denmark. He offers no floor, and the odds are stacked against him to find the back of the net. Still, he averaged 1.68 shots per match and hit target at 47.2% accuracy with his club. He does not need a lot of attempts, as seen against the Czech Republic and Wales. England, however, is a tougher defense. Wales allowed 1.62 expected goals, the Czech Republic allowed 1.16 and England has allowed 0.64 per match. If Denmark is to shock England, they will need Dolberg like they did against the pervious knockout stage opponents.
Jordan Pickford (DraftKings: $6,800)
Kasper Schmeichel (DraftKings: $4,600)
Similar to any knockout stage match, goalkeepers offer a bigger floor with the points for a win. Gamers do not need both in a lineup unless running a max. Jordan Pickford comes in at a low price for the resume in these Euros. He has yet to give up a goal and is seeing a couple attempts, which serves as more upside than just the volatile clean sheet and win bonus.
The opposing EPL keeper, Kasper Schmeichel, has enjoyed more domestic success this year. Given the taunting video of the Denmark keeper’s comments on them bringing home a trophy, England should make a point to fire a number of shots and embarrass him. That makes him a solid GPP play considering he is a top-level keeper and more volume is more upside at a sub-$5,000 salary.
