MATCHES (EST)

FORWARDS

Robert Lewandowski, FCB at CRB (€29): While he saw his 15 game goal-scoring streak come to an end over the weekend, Lewandowski has been ablaze over the first 16 games of the season. He holds the highest goal-scoring odds on the slate, and he'll look to add to his UCL haul against a Crvena Zvezda side that he peppered with eight shots and scored on the first time they met.

Son Heung-Min, TOT v. OLY (€24): Tottenham fans have had plenty of reason to be jumpy of late, but Son isn't one of them. The South Korean attacker has bagged five goals in his last three Champions League outings, taking 15 shots (including nine on goal) along the way. He'll have ample opportunity to keep his fine run of form going at home against an overmatched Olympiakos unit.

Gabriel Jesus, MCI v. DON (€21): With Sergio Aguero set to miss the next couple of weeks, Jesus will be thrust into prime position to show off his attacking abilities. He has a goal and an assist in his only two UCL starts this season, and checking in just behind Lewandowski and Harry Kane (€29) on the anytime goal scorer odds chart, he comes at a decent discount against a Shakhtar side that he found the net against the first time they clashed.

MIDFIELDERS

Kevin De Bruyne, MCI v. DON (€27): If we're paying all the way up at midfield, De Bruyne is the guy. He has the ability to string together multiple chances created, crosses, and shots, which in turn sets him up nicely to make an impact on the score-sheet. That bodes well with Manchester City projected to score multiple goals at home against Shakhtar.

Riyad Mahrez, MCI v. DON (€20): Mahrez looked like he took a transport machine back to his Leicester City days as he picked apart Chelsea to the tune of 18 fantasy points Saturday. He'll look to carry that form over to Tuesday's favorable matchup with a Shakhtar team that he also torched for 18 points earlier in the season.

Josip Ilicic, ATA v. DZG (€15): Ilicic has missed the last month of Serie A action after kicking his opponent from behind back on Nov. 3. Prior to that, he had given Atalanta a big boost in attack, with 13 shots, three goals and an assist in his previous three domestic league starts. Playing higher up the field as a forward, and with fresh legs, he should put Dinamo Zagreb to the test in a juicy matchup at home.

DEFENDERS

Joshua Kimmich, FCB at CRV (€22): Kimmich may appear overrated considering he's priced in the same range of some of the top attackers listed above, but he's proven his worth on multiple occasions as the type of player who can make-or-break a slate. He was awarded a goal in Bayern's win over the weekend, highlighting his ability to impact the score-sheet any given game.

Serge Aurier, TOT v. OLY (€15): Aurier produced an assist in domestic play over the weekend, and he comes at a manageable price as Spurs check in with the best clean sheet odds on the slate. He can produce fantasy points on both sides of the field against Olympiacos, and if Saturday's game is any indication, new manager Jose Mourinho could be pushing him even more to get involved going forward.

Angelino, MCI v. DON (€13): Angelino comes at a feeble price for a potential starter on a Manchester City side that has strong clean sheet odds at home. He's logging more minutes with Oleksandr Zinchenko sidelined, and if he's announced as a starter Tuesday he brings good salary relief to both cash and GPP builds. 

GOALKEEPER

Paulo Gazzaniga, TOT v. OLY (€10): Considering Spurs have the best clean sheet odds on the slate, clicking the "Add Player" button on Gazzaniga feels like we're committing a crime. He's an absolute steal at minimum price, and after keeping a clean sheet in each of his last two UCL appearances, he's well-positioned to make it three straight against an Olympiakos side that lacks attacking firepower.
