Bruno Fernandes (DK: $11,000): The sole Must-Have for this slate is the Portuguese midfielder for Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes. Fernandes is the clear top midfield option today. He takes nearly all set pieces and penalty kicks for United (which is especially important due to United’s propensity to draw PKs). Since joining the club halfway through last season, Fernandes has been dominant, contributing eight goals and seven assists in his fourteen EPL appearances. It wasn’t all upside though; Fernandes also averaged 13 floor FPTs per game, averaging over three shots, two shots assisted, and five crosses per game. This week, United are the heaviest favorites on the slate playing against Crystal Palace, and they have the highest team total. Palace are not a terrible defensive team though, which is one reason we prefer prioritizing Fernandes over the goal-dependent United forwards. Fernandes should be able to reach value even at his high price, and he has considerable upside if United draw a penalty. Fernandes has the best floor and arguably the best upside on this slate. For this reason, we recommend locking him into your lineups as the sole Must-Have.
