RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Cristiano RonaldoJuventusVs Ferencvárosi12MHe has been on a tear since his return from illness with five goals and an assist in four and it is impossible to look away from him against the joint worst-defense in the tournament so far.
2Robert LewandowskiBayern MunichVs RB Salzburg12MI think Bayern's 2-6 victory in the reverse fixture which included 2 goals by Lewandowski has convinced me enough.
3Erling Braut HålandBorussia DortmundVs Club Brugge11M
4Kylian MbappePSGVs RB Leipzig11MPSG might have lost the reverse fixture but in their defense they didn't have Mbappe or Neymar.
5Dušan TadićAjaxVs Midtjylland9M
6Romelu LukakuInter MilanVs Real Madrid11MLukaku heads into this matchup in good form with two goals and two assists in a 4-2 victory against Torino in his last league game. Inter will be desperate for a victory to move out of the bottom against a Real Madrid team that hasn't kept a clean sheet in the last eight games.
7NeymarPSGVs RB Leipzig11.5M
8Alvaro MorataJuventusVs Ferencvárosi9MMorata is joint top scorer in the tournament right now with 4 goals, forms a great partnership with Ronaldo and boasts of an impressive 100% conversion rate so far.
9Timo WernerChelsea@Rennes10.5M
10Ciro ImmobileLazioVs Zenit10.5MThere are few players as consistent as Immobile but we are spoilt for options this week to seriously consider him. Still worth a punt?

Defenders

1João CanceloManchester City@Olympiacos5.5MThere is a massive difference in the level between Manchester City and the other teams in the group. They have conceded just one goal so far whereas this week's opponents Olympiacos have scored just one. So Cancelo is a good shout for a cleansheet as well as some possible attacking returns.
2Raphaël GuerreiroBorussia DortmundVs Club Brugge6MHe has a goal and two assists in his last two games while playing for one of the best defensive teams in the world. Oh and they also kept a cleansheet in the reverse fixture.
3Ben ChilwellChelsea@Rennes5.5MIn another case of contrasting fortunes, Chelsea is one of the two teams which is yet to concede. Rennes have only scored once and that was a penalty.
4DaniloJuventusVs Ferencvárosi5M
5Nicolas TagliaficoAjaxVs Midtjylland5M
6Andrew RobertsonLiverpoolVs Atalanta6.5MLiverpool is the other team which is yet to concede.
