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.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (DK: $7,100): The first daily fantasy soccer Must-Have for the slate is Gylfi Sigurdsson, the Icelandic midfielder for Everton. Everton face off against Southampton, with both clubs searching for their first victory in the second match of the season. Both Everton and Southampton started the season off with one point apiece, though Everton’s road to their result was undoubtedly more exciting. Everton overcame playing with a man down to secure a 2-2 draw against newcomers Wolverhampton. Meanwhile, Southampton played to a 0-0 draw against Burnley, primarily due to the heroics of their goalkeeper. Everton enter the match as... Read More
Johann Berg Gudmundsson (DK: $7,700): Finishing off Gameweek 1 is a three match slate featuring three of the top teams in English football, as Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal look to start off their Premier League campaign on the right foot. The marquee matchup is undoubtedly the clash between Manchester City and Arsenal, though there is value across the slate. Southampton and Burnley will face off at St. Mary’s Stadium, with Southampton entering the match as home favorites. Following a disastrous campaign last year, the Saints will look to rebound and their new signings during the transfer window will look... Read More
Gylfi Sigurdsson (DK: $6,400): Everton have added a lot of talent during this transfer window, but they have also parted ways with other players. Sigurdsson is expected to take all of Everton’s set pieces making him one of the safest players on the slate. Gylfi is both midfield and forward-eligible, making him easy to fit in during lineup construction. Sigurdsson was once a player that had to be considered every week when he played for Swansea and could very well be that player again this season. Sigurdsson’s price is likely to increase throughout the season and we may never see... Read More
Nacer Chadli (DK: $4,900): The daily fantasy soccer Must-Have for this slate is the Belgian midfielder, Nacer Chadli. Chadli didn’t start for his country to begin the tournament, but has earned a spot in their starting eleven over their last two matches. He’s had a set piece role in most games he has featured in for his country this tournament, but in the semifinal round against France, his role increased. In that match, he took all five of his team’s corners, en route to eleven crosses sent in. That alone was enough for him to hit value, but he also... Read More
Neymar (DK: $11,200): The Must-Have for the first set of quarterfinal matches is Neymar, the Brazilian superstar. The first two quarterfinal matches are highly anticipated with Uruguay taking on France, with the winner facing the victor of the Brazil and Belgium match. Both marquee matchups are expected to be close affairs, though France and Brazil have been given the edge as favorites. Brazil’s matchup against Belgium features two countries that were considered favorites to lift the World Cup prior to the tournament. While Brazil’s only hiccup during the campaign has been a draw to Switzerland, Belgium were nearly disastrously eliminated... Read More
