Ross Barkley (DK: $7,400): The sole Must-Have for this three-game EPL slate is the English midfielder for Aston Villa, Ross Barkley. Barkley’s loan from Chelsea to Aston Villa has allowed him to shine, as he already has two goals and one assist over his first five starts. What makes us like him the most is that he’s recently taken over set pieces for his new club. Barkley is averaging three shots, three shots assisted, and four crosses to help contribute to a very solid floor of over 11 FPTs per start. These numbers have been increasing in recent weeks as his share of set pieces has grown. Aston Villa are home favorites this week against a Brighton side that allows nearly two goals per game. Villa currently sit in sixth place in the league, largely due to their ability to score goals at a clip of over two per game. Despite this game featuring some of the smaller clubs on the slate, the implied goal totals for all three games are similar, so we love targeting Barkley in a strong matchup this week. Barkley has a great floor and decent upside at his price, and for this reason we recommend locking him into your lineups on this slate.
