Kevin De Bruyne, MCI v. NEW ($11,700): De Bruyne is the most expensive player on the slate, but he's also the highest-scoring fantasy player in the Premier League (by almost 100 fantasy points), including the most floor points. Additionally, Manchester City are -1000 favorites at home against Newcastle, who have been playing better lately but have still allowed the most crosses, second-most corners, second-most chances created and fourth-most shots in the Premier League this season. There are certainly ways to build lineups without De Bruyne, though the discount from the Manchester City attackers to the West Ham ones isn't nearly big enough given the difference between their respective win odds and implied goal totals.

Jesus is expected to lead the line for a team that's -190 to score more than 2.5 goals, which has given him -230 odds to score himself, which is the best on the slate, and yet he is $1,000 less than West Ham's Jarrod Bowen, $900 less
