Ferran Torres, ESP v. SWE ($8,900): It's Robert Lewandowski ($12,000) or bust for Monday's slate because the other forwards are iffy at best. The problem is that you basically need at least one goal from Lewandowski for him to be worth the $12,000 and, unlike Memphis Depay on Sunday, he doesn't take set pieces. Lewandowski is usually priced this way for Bundesliga slates, but Poland are not Bayern Munich. I'd rather bet on the team with the highest implied goal total (Spain) and instead of going to a goal-dependent forward, Torres provides more in open play and could also steal a set piece or two. In their last friendly against Portugal, Torres had four shots and a couple crosses in 90 minutes, and given the lack of attacking wingers, he should be in play for a full 90 in the opener. You could go with Gerard Moreno ($10,600) or Alvaro Morata ($9,100) in GPPs, but they could sub in for each other, so it'll be hard to use either in cash games. If you want to spend at forward in cash, Torres may be the only reasonable option unless you go down to someone like Emil Forsberg ($7,000) on the other side of the pitch.
Karol Swiderski, POL v. SVK ($4,800): Swiderski has about a 50 percent chance to start, and if he does he'll probably be subbed off,
