Bruno Fernandes (DK: $11,300): The Portuguese midfielder has been a sensation for Manchester United since they acquired him in January. This matchup is one that favors his style of play, so we are giving him the Must-Have tag despite his price. Fernandes has only played six games, but with a huge impact, getting man of the match in all SIX! We see him in a lovely matchup for fantasy purposes with his high floor and offensive creativity; he has the ability to have the highest ceiling on the slate like he was the other day in the showdown slate. With United being the biggest favorites with the highest implied total, Fernandes will be a big part of why Manchester United get a win. Fernandes has averaged four shots and five crosses per game and a crazy 23 FPTs! It’s no doubt he is the best cash/GPP play on this slate.
Lucas Digne (DK: $6,400): Digne has been one of the most consistent fantasy players in his position all year. Since this slate doesn’t have many defensive options, we are placing him as our second Must-Have. Digne has been able to post an average of 13 FPTs with a high floor due to his set-piece role. Digne has a free license to join the attack and loves to roam forward whenever possible. We actually had a Must-Have against Norwich City who plays the exact same position as Digne, and he posted around 10 FPTs, but he didn’t get as many crosses as expected, so we are looking at around 10-15 FPTs for Digne’s floor. We are picking on Norwich City because their defense has been in shambles, missing so many players that their team hasn’t been able to create any chemistry together. Below are the stats they allowed in their last game.
- 7 Corners
- 8 Shots on Target
- 20 Shots
Digne will not only be one of the best defensive options, but he can be stacked with his teammates, so join us in the War Room to discuss which plays are our favorite.
