Romelu Lukaku, BEL v. RUS ($9,900): There will be those who back Lukaku and those who don't, and it could be a fine line if the Belgian bags a brace. He's expensive, but he has the best odds to score on the slate by a decent margin and could have a floor near 10 points in an ideal performance. He scored from six shots (four on target) in last week's friendly and racked up seven goals on 22 shots and three assists in five qualifying matches for the Euros. Of course, given Kevin De Bruyne's ($10,500) likely absence, most lineups will have enough room to spend on Lukaku, meaning he may not be the best GPP play. There's a chance he's very popular in cash games, and if you don't have him, your team could be done after he scores in the first 20 minutes against one of the worst back lines in the tournament (Russia allowed 12 goals in six Nations League matches). Even if you really like Switzerland, it'll be hard to spend on Haris Seferovic ($9,200), Mario Gavranovic ($9,100) or even Breel Embolo ($8,100) in what's expected to be a more defensive match. The bigger question may be between Lukaku and teammate Dries Mertens ($8,600) because the latter could have a split role on set pieces without De Bruyne in the squad.
