Ryan Fraser (Scotland / M / 8.2K)
The Bournemouth man enjoys representing his Nation of Scotland, and at home here he should see to yet another double digit crossing affair. His upside worries me a bit for the price, but the floor is supreme. The new scoring system helps Fraser’s outlook even more with shots assisted worth a point apiece. Regardless of whether or not you decide on fitting Memphis Depay (11.2) in to your builds, Fraser should be someone you strongly consider as a building block.
Timo Werner (Germany / F / 7.1K)
Timo is off to a hot start in Germany, with 5 goals in 3 matches in domestic play. He’ll look to carry that over to the international stage here, as Germany host the Dutch in what should be a fantastic match to the eye. These two sides have played 3 times in the past calendar year, with all three having three or more goals, as well as the home side scoring at least two. It should be another open affair, and while the Dutch defense is strong, highlighted with Liverpool stud-man, Virgil Van Dijk, Germany is just as strong offensively on their best day. An in-form Timo Werner at home is someone who should be highly motivated and at 7.1K, we aren’t investing all that much.
Aleksandr Golovin (Russia / M / 5.6K)
Aleksandr Samedov has moved on from the National Team, allowing Golovin to attain a full monopoly over set pieces. The creative midfielder who currently resides in Monaco is a slight favorite here against Scotland. While he fares better at home in Russia, he should still have no issues creating chances. 5.6K is just too cheap for the floor/upside combo he brings to the table.
Karlo Bartolec (Croatia / D / 2.7K)
Assuming he starts at fullback, there’s no need to overthink this one. Croatia aren’t at home, and are only slight favorites, but a sub 3K fullback who fancies getting in attacking positions cannot be passed up.
