PLAYER RECOMMENDATIONS

STRIKERS

Gerard Deulofeu, WAT at WHU (€9M): Deulofeu opened his Watford account in their shocking 4-1 thumping of Chelsea on Monday, scoring 17.75 fantasy points when all was said and done. That's back-to-back double-digit outputs from Deulofeu, and it's clear that he's going to play a big role in the Watford attack down the stretch.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, ARS at TOT (€7M): Aubameyang wasted no time getting off the mark in his new digs, scoring a goal and earning 13.25 fantasy points in his Arsenal debut last weekend. The north London derby is usually full of fireworks, and with it being the first game of the day we'll want as much coverage as possible since there's no late swap on The Six.

MIDFIELDERS

Dele Alli, TOT v. ARS (€10M) and/or Son Heung-Min TOT v. ARS (€10M): Alli hasn't been putting up gaudy numbers, but he gives us additional exposure to the first game on the slate and he won't break the bank. The more exposure the merrier in this game, so Son for the same price lets us double down on the Tottenham attack if we're stacking.

Joao Mario, WHU v. WAT (€9M):Joao Mario has topped 13 fantasy points in back-to-back outings since joining West Ham. He notched his first assist last time out, still comes at a reasonable price, and given his strong start with his new club we can roll with him confidently again.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, ARS at TOT (€9M): Mkhitaryan put on a show in Arsenal's 5-1 thumping of Everton, dishing out three assists en route to 19.05 fantasy points. He's still very reasonably priced and fits right in with our north London derby stack.

DEFENDERS

Kieran Trippier, TOT v. ARS (€9M): Trippier has topped double-digit points in each of his last 13 starts, making for a fine play at under €10M. Just be sure he's starting and be ready to pivot to Serge Aurier (€7M) in case he gets the nod.

Vincent Kompany, MCI v. LEI (€7M): Kompany topped 15.00 points in his first start in six games, picking up right where he left off considering he scored 15.70 points the last time he saw a full allotment of minutes. This one's a bit of a risk with newcomer Aymeric Laporte (€7M) looming, but there could be some value in multi-entering tournaments and alternating between the two, giving us coverage regardless of who's in.

Sead Kolasinac, ARS at TOT (€5M): Kolasinac would open up some big savings from the first match of the day if he's announced in the Arsenal starting lineup. He hovers around 10 points anytime he gets a full runout, making him well worth keeping an eye out for at just €5M.

GOALKEEPER

David Ospina, ARS at TOT (€5M): There's a chance Ospina starts since Petr Cech is dealing with a calf injury. He's near minimum price and could give us a nice salary saver at a position that's mostly a dart throw as it is.
