The weekend is almost here so we’re getting ready to prepare for another Premier League slate as we enter EPL DFS Week 29. It’s certainly a fun one with a few good teams on the slate and a couple of matchups that could go either way. The slate on DraftKings sets up nicely and features a 685 entry $27 tournament as well as a 4,705 entry $3 GPP. Let’s look at some of the plays and how to attack this slate.
Lee Grant ($4,000) – With DFS soccer moving towards cheap goalkeepers, we have two options this week. As always, they’re volatile, but so is your $6,000 goalkeeper, so save the money and spend it somewhere more reliable. Grant faces Chelsea, who tend to force opposing goalkeepers to a lot of saves, and that gives him upside and a certain level of safety. There is always the possibility of Chelsea scoring 3+ goals, but even then Grant should be able to get enough saves to grind to a positive score. He is a primary cash game target.
Eldin Jakupovic ($3,900) – Hull City concede the third most shots in the league, only after Burnley and Sunderland. They are traveling this week and get Everton, who will attack for the majority of the game and will find a way to get shots on target. This is a very similar situation to Lee Grant’s, so don’t be afraid to split the two in cash games. I’ll certainly be splitting them in most of my exposure, both cash and GPP…
