Brighton v Liverpool
Brighton continues to showcase their ability to put together a defensive-minded gameplan that yields an effective counter. They have gotten 7 out of their last 9 possible points while hosting Everton and Arsenal and traveling to West Ham. The common thread with those teams is that their attacking prowesses are weaker in those respective venues. Largely, this is the case with Liverpool. Considering how these teams have been playing recently, Mo Salah makes a decent cash play. Both teams have been very solid defensively. This game feels like a 1-1 or 1-2 type of game. If you are buying into Brighton’s abilities, Glenn Murray is the likely candidate to beat the defense, especially if Liverpool has to resort to using Fabinho as a centerback again.
Burnley v Fulham
This is the most important match of the day for two teams who desperately need a win. Burnley is 4 points clear of 19th place Fulham and only 2 pts above the relegation zone. History is against Fulham to climb out of the cellar but a win tomorrow goes a long way to bucking that trend. I just can’t see it happening, though. Fulham is still without Alfie Mawson and, as bad as their defense has been with him, it will be even worse without him. Burnley is starting to hit their stride, too. All of this bodes well for the Burnley forwards. Mawson is their best aerial defender and the Burnley forwards can be deadly with their head. I do like both teams to score and Burnley has had trouble defending wide mids, lately. The great part of this matchup is that both teams have not been scoring as much as you would expect, given their chances. This could lead to goals, since both teams can allow plenty of opportunity.
Cardiff v Huddersfield
The match feels like a draw but there are players to like on both sides. Huddersfield tends to score more than Cardiff, but they also give up more chances than Cardiff. The first place I want to look is at the forwards. Both teams are susceptible to forwards. They each make GPP plays, with Steve Mounie being the lower-owned of the two (Callum Paterson being the other fwd). I’ll have a couple more plays lined up in case i can’t fit these guys on Fanduel, where you can only play 2 forwards.

Crystal Palace v Watford
Crystal Palace has been rather on fire. They have gone to Wolverhampton and to Man City and come away with victories. They lost to Chelsea at home 1-0. I have Chelsea as the 2nd best road attack in the league. It would seem easy that they could handle Watford, right? I’m not so sure that this is a good matchup for Palace. This type of game plays right into Watford’s style. I think Palace will open the game up and Watford will invite them in, just to flip the script. I like Watford to win here. Andros Townsend is worth consideration in any format. He should do a bit of everything and he has scoring upside. Watford I have as more a GPP play and my targets will come more from the right side.
Leicester v Southampton
I’m not that thrilled with this matchup overall. There are some cash-viable plays like James Maddison or Ben Chilwell but this seems like a slow, plodding game. I care more for the gpp one-offs. For Leicester, I like Jamie Vardy. Southampton has been vulnerable to forwards. For Southampton, I like central mids and nobody on that squad has been hotter than Nathan Redmond, as of late. He is very much in play again.
Chelsea v Newcastle
I am all kinds of on board with Chelsea in this matchup. I don’t think it will be a drubbing but perhaps a 2-0 final. A lot of people will be taking Eden Hazard. He is a cash play for me but for differentiation purposes I like Willian. Newcastle has been surrendering chances from the right the most. Willian hasn’t been in the best form and this should keep his ownership down pretty far. I wouldn’t be shocked to find him with single-digit ownership. Newcastle has been getting burned from the attacking wings, so exposure to both players is a good idea.
That’s the game breakdown for this week. Remember, this is a top-level view and things can change. Of course, you know about the most important hour in the soccer DFS world. We will always have free content but the good stuff is saved for the ones who are willing to go the extra step. We will stand with you if you stand with us. Good luck this week!
