Huerelho Gomes WAT vs HUL FD $5,800
The Brazilian has made eight saves in his last two matches, scoring 20 FanDuel points at Middlesborough followed by 26.5 points at the Liberty Stadium last time out. Watford host a Hull City side that have scored only once in their last three outings. The Tiger’s have made just 81 attempts in nine matches: Middlesbrough are the only side that have managed less (77).
Hugo Loris TOT vs LEI FD $5,400
The French shot-stopper has conceded only twice in six outings, picking up four clean sheets in that run. His opponents Leicester City have been underwhelming on the road, losing all four of their matches and failing to score at Stamford Bridge in their last away trip.
Michael Keane BRN @ MUN FD $6,300
firmly in our thoughts: his trip to Old Trafford should require him to put in another tireless defensive shift. The centre-back is now second overall in the league for CBI’s recorded (121), behind Hull’s Curtis Davies (137). Keane’s seven goal attempts also puts him in the top ten defenders for efforts on goal and all of those efforts have arrived in the last four Gameweeks.
Scott Dann CRY vs LIV FD $8,100
make a return. The Eagle’s centre-back has the best average of defenders in FanDuel, picking up 25.6 points over five matches before being sidelined.
Leicester City’s defenders could also be worth investment ahead of their trip to White Hart Lane.
Christian Fuchs LEI @ TOT FD $8,400
scored 46 points against Palace, a decent score even when his goal is taken out of consideration. The full-back’s 20 tackles this season puts him among the top three defenders for that metric.
Wes Morgan LEI @ TOT FD $6,200
lower price tag also puts him in the frame for the trip to Spurs; the centre-back has picked up the most CBI’s (75) of the Champion’s back-line.
Phillipe Coutinho LIV @ CRY FD $10,300
is a currently a hot property across all the Fantasy games: his winner against West Bromwich Albion was a fourth goal of the season, and he’s also claimed the same number of assists. Ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park, the Brazilian is the top midfielder for goal attempts with 37 over nine matches. Twelve of those have been on target; only Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson has hit more on target efforts. It’s worth considering that FanDuel’s scoring system can also favour more defensive minded midfielders.
Danny Drinkwater LEI @ TOT FD $7,100
has emerged as a potentially profitable pick in the mid-price bracket. A 22 point FanDuel average over his last four outings makes Drinkwater appear a steady option. Only Everton’s Idrisa Gueye, with 35 tackles this term, has recorded more than the Foxes asset’s 26. Drinkwater made seven tackles in his last away match against Manchester United. A respectable 16 goal attempts so far this season also shows promise as the Champion’s travel to Spurs.
Paul Pogba MUN vs BRN FD $9,100
He makes the list as a player who appears to revel in home comforts. The Frenchman has accrued much stronger FanDuel scores at Old Trafford, averaging 28.6 points there compared to just 13.4 points per match on the road. A brace against Fenerbahce in the UEFA Champion’s League followed a strike against Leicester City in recent run-outs in front of his own fans. Pogba’s 10 chances created and 13 goal attempts in four league matches at home is encouraging ahead of the encounter with Burnley.
Loris Karius LIV @ CRY FD $4,500 GK
A visit to Crystal Palace should see the German shot-stopper return points from saves at the very least.
Joel Matip LIV @ CRY FD $5,300 DEF
has seven appearances but remains at a short price. A 28.5 point haul at West Brom was mainly down to his 11 clearances and 5 tackles; another aerial bombardment is likely to be incoming at Selhurst Park.
Jesse Lingard MUN vs BRN FD $5,100 MID
three starts in four makes the winger a potentially good value option against a Burnley side that have been porous away.
Mousa Dembele TOT vs LEI FD $6,000 MID
has made nine tackles over the last two. The Belgian should be busy again breaking up play against Leicester City – he scored a respectable 22 points at Bournemouth in his last outing.
Troy Deeney WAT vs HUL FD $6,400 FWD
has had two positive performances at home, scoring in both of the Hornets’ recent matches at Vicarage Road from four shots on target. Six chances created over his last four outings adds appeal as Hull drop in on Watford.
