FORWARDS

Memphis Depay, BAR v. FCB ($9,900): I can understand looking at this matchup and being wary of rostering Depay. Often times on these Champions League slates, goals are king. Therefore, I'd expect Barcelona's difficult matchup against Bayern Munich will have people looking to someone like Romelu Lukaku ($10,500) in a better matchup against Zenit and hoping he bags a brace. Keep in mind that the Barcelona v. Bayern match has the highest total on the slate and Depay is now clearly the main man following the departure of Lionel Messi. Barca are dealing with a number of absences in their attacking ranks, and most of what they create and produce should come from Depay. I'd liken his role on this team to that of what we see when he plays for the Netherlands; he should take most set pieces and be on penalties as well. 

Paulo Dybala, JUV at MAL ($9,300): Dybala is in a similar spot to Depay in terms of his role on the team now that Cristiano Ronaldo has left. With Ronaldo out of the picture, Dybala is now the primary option on free kicks, and he'll continue to share corners with Federico Bernardeschi
