Soccer Must-haves are our most highly recommended players for any given slate. Our experts select these picks above the rest and have determined they are most likely to reach or exceed value. These are the foundational players that we advise building your lineups around.
Mohamed Elyounoussi (DK: $5,700): The daily fantasy soccer Must-Have for this two-game slate is the Norwegian midfielder for Southampton. Southampton are the biggest underdogs on the slate, but we still don’t feel like it’s worth fading the great value Elyounoussi provides. Elyounoussi should see a monopoly of set pieces for Southampton, providing him an excellent floor for his price. His set piece responsibility has helped him average more than nine crosses per ninety minutes so far this EPL season. His floor and set piece responsibility will allow him to keep accumulating FPTs if Southampton concede first, which they are expected... Read More
Harry Kane (DK: $11,100): Tottenham are the biggest favorites of the slate and will not have an easier matchup all season. This weekend, they play Cardiff City who have struggled this season and will likely be relegated. Cardiff have conceded 16 goals and have yet to win a game. Tottenham will be without some of their key players but are more than capable of dominating this game. With the likes of Eriksen and Alli out due to injury, someone will have to make up for their offensive production. Harry Kane is in a great spot to find the back of... Read More
Willian (DK: $11,500): The first daily fantasy soccer Must-Have for the Europa League late slate is Willian, the Brazilian winger for Chelsea. Chelsea enter as the overwhelmingly largest home favorites on the five match slate as they go up against Vidi FC, a relatively small Hungarian club. The English club started off their Europa League campaign with a slender victory over PAOK, though Chelsea is expected to perform significantly better at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have yet to taste defeat in the beginning stages of the season with seven victories and two draws in all competitions. Needless to say, it appears... Read More
Andreas Ulmer (DK: $6,600): Red Bull Salzburg pulled off an upset by beating RB Leipzig in the first game of the group stage, and they look like a team to be reckoned with. It’s not often a defender is a Must-Have, but this is an exception, on a slate where it was tough finding players who meet our criteria. We are satisfied with the safe floor and matchup Ulmer has against Celtic. As a set-piece taker, Ulmer will be the beneficiary of a Celtic team who will play a defensive style when they visit Austria. Ulmer had an assist last... Read More
Christian Pulisic (DK: $8,100): Borussia Dortmund arrive in superb form to play their first Champions League home match, and we expect that form to continue as they welcome a team in alleged turmoil. Monaco haven’t won a game since their first league match in early August. Dortmund have scored the most goals in Bundesliga and are currently in 1st while outscoring their opponents 14-2 at home. Our daily fantasy soccer Must-Have came back from injury a few weeks ago and is finally looking back in top shape. When he came back he scored two goals in as many games, but... Read More
