Memphis Depay (DraftKings: $11,700, FanDuel: $21)

Barcelona travel to take on Dynamo Kyiv. With Benfica having a tough outing against Bayern Munich, Barcelona can take the second spot with a win. The departure of their manager might spark the struggling road team. Barcelona has the most expected goals in La Liga, at 1.73 per match. The finishing is a concern, but Memphis Depay has done his part. He has contributed on 43% of the team’s scoring and handles the large part of all set shares. His 2.64 shots per match see a team leading 51.7% on-target accuracy. His floor is built on 8.91 crosses per match, and his upside is in his goal contribution. Dynamo Kyiv has allowed 1.8 expected goals per game in the Champions League. While they do well in Ukraine’s league, they will be hard-pressed to keep Barcelona to a solo goal once again.

Cristiano Ronaldo (DraftKings: $9,500, FanDuel: $22)

Duvan Zapata (DraftKings: $9,000, FanDuel: $18)

The last time Atalanta and Manchester United met they posted five total goals. The pricing on both attacks is massive, and so is the upside. Cristiano Ronaldo leads Manchester United in goals and averages 4.35 shots per match. He hits target at an accuracy clip of 37% and handles the PKs. Ronaldo is no stranger to the big stage, and he delivers repeatedly. His ownership might be low with the presence of Depay and Robert Lewandowski on the slate. In a Manchester United stack, Bruno Fernandes is a sneaky GPP play, with 2.77 shots per match and 5.69 scoring chances created. He builds on his crossing volume via the open play and averages 4.53 per match.

Atalanta has no choice but to force the issue on the offensive end. They lack the defense to stop Manchester United on attack and will look to Duvan Zapata to keep pace on the score sheet. He contributes on 44% of the host side’s scoring and averages 3.12 shots per match. The concern with Zapata is the lack of floor. He will need to score to pay the price but serves as leverage to the popular striking options above. Alongside Zapata is Ruslan Malinovskyi and Josip Ilicic. Both average 5.50 scoring chances per match. Should both see the starting 11, the set shares will be split. If only one makes lineup, they will be a GPP option for floor and goal contribution upside at under $8,500.

Jordan Siebatcheu (DraftKings: $4,800, FanDuel: $15)

Daniel Parejo (DraftKings: $5,900, FanDuel: $16)

Villareal welcomes Young Boys without the services of Gerrard Moreno. Both sides can make this game a scoring fest. Jordan Siebatcheu has been a scoring threat all year for Young Boys and failed to deliver in the Champions League. He comes in with a low enough price for the scoring upside. His lack of floor makes him a strict GPP play for salary relief to fit in the studs of the slate. In a Young Boys stack Nicolas Ngamaleu handles the indirect set shares and is active on the wing with crossing volume and a number of attempts at the net.

The core play for salary relief comes on the other side of the pitch. Dani Parejo handles the set shares for Villareal and averages five crosses and 3.33 assisted shots per match across the Champions League campaign. His upside is in goal contribution, but Parejo rarely finds the back of the net on his own. The goal-hunting option upfront for the host’s is Paco Alcacer. He will handle the PKs and will provide 2x value should he find the back of the net. Yeremi Pino is explosive on the wing, but his rise in price makes it hard to pay for on the hopes he finishes on his average of less than a shot per match.

Other Options: Robert Lewandowski (DraftKings $12,500, FanDuel $23), Leroy Sane (DraftKings $10,500, FanDuel $20), Ivan Rakitic (DraftKings $5,600, FanDuel $17), Claudinho (DraftKings $6,800, FanDuel $17), Paulo Dybala (DraftKings $9,300, FanDuel $19)


Sergino Dest (DraftKings: $5,800, FanDuel: $17)

Jordi Alba (DraftKings: $6,000, FanDuel: $14)

Sergino Dest has done well at the attacking wing role. He is a threat on the open play, with 4.33 crosses per match and 2.89 scoring chances created. His upside is in attempts at the net, with an average 1.03 on the season jumping to three in his last outing against Dynamo. He adds to his value with drawn fouls and the defender tag makes him eligible for the clean sheet bonus.

The wingback Jordi Alba handles the open play like Dest. He delivers in the open play to the tune of five crosses per match and 2.57 scoring chances created. Alba ranks near the top of Barcelona’s list with 3.43 won tackles/interceptions. This mark might see a tick down with a dominance in time of possession, which would translate to a large uptick in the crossing volume as evident by his last outing. Both defenders are in play in any format and make a solid pairing with the Barcelona keeper.
