James Maddison (DK: $9,000): The lone Must-Have for this three-game EPL slate is the English midfielder for Liecester, James Maddison. Liecester are slight favorites and play at home against Wolverhampton in their season opener. Wolves are by no means an easy opponent, but Liecester were able to manage five goals against them over their two league matches last season. Regardless, Maddison isn’t reliant on a win to put out a great fantasy performance. Maddison is Liecester’s primary set piece taker, but he can contribute in more than just dead ball situations. Maddison was one of the most valuable fantasy assets in the league last season, as he put up impressive numbers in nearly every offensive category. He averaged two and a half shots, one goal, six and a half crosses, three shots assisted, two and a half fouls drawn, and a tackle won per game. As a result, his DraftKings score logs rarely fell below double-digits. In addition to having a great floor from peripherals, he has good upside as well. He scored seven times and added seven assists in league play last year. Maddison has the best combination of floor and upside on the slate, and for that reason we recommend locking him into your lineups as the sole Must-Have.
