Lionel Messi, BAR v. BVB ($11,000): Barcelona are favored at home, which is probably enough to make Messi highly owned, even as the most expensive player on the slate by $1,100. The tricky fixture against Borussia Dortmund doesn't help matters, though there's no denying that Messi can do things that no other players can do. He has a shared role on set pieces, and his floor has been pretty ridiculous lately, averaging 4.9 shots, including 2.9 on goal, and 2.9 chances created over the past eight games, a span that also saw him score nine goals and assist four others. Ousmane Dembele ($7,800) could get some attention because he's the one sharing set pieces with Messi, but it's not nearly enough volume to give him a significant floor, especially since Barcelona don't even cross many of their corners. Luis Suarez ($8,900) is much more of a GPP play, which also applies to Antoine Griezmann ($8,400) if he starts, though his ceiling isn't even that high.

Emil Forsberg, RBL v. BEN ($7,400): Forsberg has taken on a much bigger role on set pieces recently, and he's coming off an excellent match against FC Koln
