MATCHES (EDT)

FORWARDS

Kylian Mbappe, PSG v. CLUB (€29): Mbappe comes into this one boiling hot, with seven goals and two assists over his last four outings. He's found the back of the net in four straight games, including a hat-trick and assist against Wednesday's opponent Club Brugge when they met just two weeks ago.

Raheem Sterling, MCI at ATA (€28): Sterling failed to top two points in a dismal showing against Southampton over the weekend, but he plowed through Atalanta like a truck when they clashed two weeks ago. He bagged a hat-trick and flashed his ceiling with 40 points in that one, and he should have multiple opportunities to get back on track Wednesday.

Karim Benzema, RMD v. GAL (€27): After Mbappe, Benzema checks in at no. 2 on the anytime goalscorer odds sheet. Even without goals or assists, the big Frenchman is ruthless in the box and takes enough shots to be fantasy relevant any given slate. He's taken five or more shots in each of his last three appearances.

MIDFIELDERS

Angel Di Maria, PSG v. CLUB (€29): Di Maria is in scintillating form with two goals and six assists in his last four games. He's the artist in the PSG attack, and with Club Brugge serving as the canvas, he'll look to make things come to life once again.

Marko Marin, CRV v. TOT (€19): Marin typically finds himself on an island as Red Star's primary set-piece taker, supplying multiple crosses per game and positioning himself to contribute any given game. He's up against a stiff test in Tottenham, but Spurs have conceded in eight of their last nine games and there's reason to think Marin could have an impact in this one.

Josip Ilicic, ATA v. MCI (€11): Ilicic was rounding into top form before he retaliated like a macho man over the weekend to earn his marching orders. He'll serve a two-match Serie A ban for unsportsmanlike conduct, but he's still eligible to feature in Wednesday's UCL clash with Manchester City. At near-minimum price, he's well worth a look as one of Atalanta's top threats going forward.

DEFENDERS

Marcelo, RMA v. GAL (€22): Marcelo's lack of attacking stats this season is reason to cower from paying up for the Brazilian left-back, but he always comes with the ability to turn up with a massive score. He's taken multiple shots in back-to-back appearances, and in a good matchup at home against Galatasaray, he's the type of player who could be the difference-maker on the leaderboards if he can deliver on both ends of the field. 

Colin Dagba, PSG v. CLUB (€10): Down at the bottom of the bargain big we find a minimum priced jewel from the team with the best clean sheet odds on the slate. Dagba is projected to deputize at right-back for Thomas Meunier, and he should have opportunities to contribute on both sides of the ball with PSG heavily favored at home.

Petar Stojanovic, DZG v. SHK (€10): With a lack of standout defenders on the slate, Stojanovic could open up more funds to spend up at other positions. He's like using a truck compared to a flashy sports car, but he can get the job done just as well at a nice discount.

GOALKEEPER

Thibaut Courtois, RMD v. GAL (€13): Courtois has kept a clean sheet in three consecutive games, including one against Wednesday's opponent, Galatasaray, just two weeks ago. He's underpriced given his recent run of form and the strong home matchup, giving us little reason to spend up at the position.
