Memphis Depay, NED v. MKD ($11,400): The first four-game slate of the tournament brings a lot of big decisions. In addition to there being more players, the best ones are expensive and in favorable matchups, as Netherlands and Belgium play the worst teams in their respective groups. Depay is the most expensive, as he takes all set pieces for Netherlands and is only behind Romelu Lukaku ($10,000) in terms of anytime goal scorer odds odds. Furthermore, Netherlands have the highest implied goal total on the slate by a decent margin and manager Frank de Boer has already said he'll only rotate a couple players, so they probably won't take their foot off the gas. The only other forward in that price range is Lukaku, so there is some wiggle room in terms of who to pair with Depay. Wout Weghorst ($8,600) would be a complete Netherlands stack, but you'd be spending a good portion of money on that. Oddly, the Ukraine guys like Andriy Yarmolenko ($8,500) and Roman Yaremchuk ($7,800) are the next highest priced and they are better left for GPP lineups.
