It’s a short slate this week as we have just three games on Saturday but in spite of its size, it’s still a very good slate. There’s three fun games, and even though there’s an obvious lack of top end teams, there are several good DFS options we can explore. Let’s go position by position as always.
There’s going to be goals on this slate, and with the goalkeeper position extremely volatile, I would recommend getting exposure to several names here. In cash games:
Ben Foster ($4,100) – Foster is a competent goalkeeper and West Brom have impressed in large part to him this season. They’re eight in the league and have allowed just 34 goals all season. In his last two games against solid teams on the road, Foster put up eight and ten saves respectively. The floor is certainly there even if he concedes, and I don’t see another route in cash games, especially considering his price.
GPP Target – Eldin Jakupovic ($5,100) – Swansea are good enough to attack Hull City on the road but not great enough to score 3+ goals. Gylfi Sigurdsson will create chances and shoot from distance, leading Jakupovic to many save opportunities. If Hull were to keep a clean sheet at home, Jakupovic can pay off his expensive price tag of $5,100…
