Bruno Fernandes (DK: $10,000): The sole Must-Have on this slate is the Portuguese midfielder for Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes. United come in as sizable favorites to Newcastle this week. Fernandes takes a majority of set pieces and penalty kicks for United this season, making him a solid play on most slates. So far this season, he’s averaging eight crosses, two shots, and three shots assisted per ninety. He also has two goals and an assist in just two and a half games played. On this slate, he is given top-five goal-scoring odds among expected starters. Fernandes is not as hard to fit in lineups with Kevin de Bruyne out on this slate, making him a great play and one that will also draw a lot of ownership. United will be without striker Anthony Martial this week due to suspension, so they may lean even more heavily on Fernandes for attacking production. Newcastle have been strong to start the year, but they still allow twenty crosses and fifteen shots per game. We believe this is a matchup that Bruno can excel in. Bruno Fernandes has the best combination of floor and upside on this slate, and for this reason we recommend locking him into your lineups as the lone Must-Have.
