Robert Snodgrass (DK: $7,700): The first Must-Have for this week’s slate is the Scottish midfielder Robert Snodgrass. West Ham have not had the best season so far due to their inconsistency and are in need of three points this weekend. Snodgrass has been riding the bench for the majority of this season so far, but has played well since his return to the first team. In the two games since rejoining the first team, Snodgrass has sent in 31 crosses and has scored twice. Snodgrass brings a lot of creativity to the starting eleven, and simply does it all. He...

Toni Kroos (DK: $7,300): The 29-year-old veteran midfielder comes in as our first Must-Have for this Wednesday Champions League slate. Real Madrid comes in as the biggest home favorite on this slate (-526) and although their attack has been inconsistent this year, the one player who’s been consistent is Toni Kroos. Madrid changed their attacking style this year which allows their players to cross the ball into the box to create scoring opportunities. In this style, Kroos thrives as he loves to cross the ball. In UCL play this year, he has averaged over five crosses a match along with... Read More
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (DK: $7,800): When you have the talent Liverpool has you can afford to rest players in the Champions League in anticipation for their next league match versus Manchester City. Chamberlain got his first Champions League start last gameweek versus this exact team and scored a couple goals while splitting set-pieces, giving him both a high floor and ceiling. Without a doubt the best matchup of the slate and it gets even sweeter at Anfield, the away side have conceded the first goal in five of their last six competitive away matches. In those away matches Genk have also... Read More
Trent Alexander-Arnold (DK: $6,800): Our first Must-Have of the slate is the Liverpool fullback, Alexander-Arnold, who continues to be outstanding on both sides of the pitch. On a slate where City and Liverpool attacking options are at a premium, TAA has by far the best value of any player on either team. While Liverpool going down a goal early last week against the Spurs probably led him to put in even more crosses than usual, only once this season has he had fewer than 10 fantasy points in a match. With his prowess in maneuvering around defenders on the wing,... Read More
Ashley Young (DK $5,500): There is no avoiding the fact that United have struggled on the road this season, but we anticipate that they will maintain the majority of possession tomorrow against a Norwich side in poor form. Even if United are unable to find the back of the net, Ashley Young should rack up fantasy points in the attacking third, where he has more completed passes and crosses than any other United player over recent weeks. Young was rested in the UEL on Thursday while youngster Brandon Williams got his shot at LB, and we doubt Solskjaer will play... Read More
