We have yet another horrible slate this weekend as there are no top teams playing on Saturday and we’re lacking anyone over $9,500 on DraftKings. Sorry to start us off on a poor note, but the Premier League needs to do a better job of putting good teams on Saturday to keep interest up across the whole weekend. Now that I’m done ranting, let’s take a look at the slate ahead and see what we can salvage.
It’s really hard to go wrong at goalkeeper on this slate. There aren’t really any standout options and you could get away with making a case for almost anyone! There aren’t really any goalkeepers expected to see a huge number of shots and none that pose a great chance at a clean sheet, and we’re set for an extremely volatile situation here once again. In cash games, I’m likely turning to:
Jack Butland ($4,400) – Butland is a bit expensive compared to what I usually pay for goalkeeper but he’s extremely affordable on this slate. Bournemouth have averaged just over 13 shots per game at home and tend to play a fairly attacking style. The concern here is that Bournemouth have converted their chances well this season, but there’s room for regression and Butland should be able to get saves in even if he concedes a goal or two.
Tournament targets: Maarten Stekelenburg, Heurelho Gomes…
