RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Erling HålandBorussia DortmundVs SS Lazio11MThere isn't anyone more deserving of the #1 spot than the current top scorer in the tournament.
2Duvan ZapataAtalantaVs Midtjylland9.7M
3Cristiano RonaldoJuventusVs Dynamo Kyiv12M
4Alejandro GómezAtalantaVs Midtjylland8.5MZapata for the ceiling. Papu for the floor.
5Romelu LukakuInter Milan@Borussia11MThe duo of Lukaku and Martinez spells trouble for a Borussia team missing key players such as Bensebaini and Elvedi in defense. He also scored a brace in the reverse fixture.
6Karim BenzemaReal Madrid@Shakhtar Donetsk10.5M
7Mergim BerishaRB Salzburg@Lokomotiv Moscow7.1MNot many might have heard of this budget forward but he scored in both the games against Bayern and assisted two goals against Atletico. Now he goes up against Lokomotiv who are second in shots conceded only to Krasnodar and he could be a good differential.
8Anthony MartialManchester UnitedVs PSG9.5M
9Ciro ImmobileLazio@Borussia Dortmund10.5MImmobile sunk Dortmund with a goal and assist in the reverse fixture. Who doesn't love a good revenge game?
7NeymarPSG@Manchester United11.5M

Midfielders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Bruno FernandesManchester UnitedVs PSG9.5MThe introduction of Van De Beek in midfield allows Bruno more attacking freedom and makes the man with three goals and an assist in the tournament an even more tempting asset.
2Mohammed SalahLiverpoolVs Ajax11.5M
3Josip IličićAtalantaVs Midtjylland8.9MHis four goal haul against Valencia in the UCL last season is always in the back of my head but he is still the best Atalanta midfielder to get in my opinion.
4Lars StindlBorussia M'gladbachVs Inter Milan7.9M
5Jadon SanchoBorussia DortmundVs SS Lazio10MSancho's form has been a bit hot and cold so you never know what you are going to get.
6Ferran TorresManchester City@Porto7.6M
7Angel Di MariaPSG@Manchester United9M
8Joao FelixAtletico MadridVs Bayern Munich9MThe absence of Neuer and Goretzka along with the long list of already injured players gives me some confidence that he could finally get a much awaited return.
9Christian PulisicChelsea@Sevilla9M
10Dominik SzoboszlaiRB Salzburg@Lokomotiv Moscow7.1M

Defenders

 

RankNameTeamOpponentValueComments
1Cristian RomeroAtalantaVs Midtjylland4.9MRomero has the highest ball recoveries for any defender and averages 4.3 points per game just for it. He even got an assist and ended up with 12 points in the reverse fixture and is a good bet for every type of points this week.
2AngeliñoRB Leipzig@İstanbul Başakşehir5.4MWhen RB Leipzig last played against Istanbul, Angeliño scored both goals in a 2-0 victory and was the highest scorer in fantasy for the week.
3Robin GosensAtalantaVs Midtjylland5.5MThe Atalanta wingback does not average as many recoveries as teammate Romero but has more attacking potential.
4João CanceloManchester City@Porto5.5M
5DaniloJuventusVs Dynamo Kyiv5M
6Raphaël VaraneReal Madrid@Shakhtar Donetsk5.5MShakhtar have failed to score since their game in MD1 against Real and have the least shots on goal after Olympiacos and Lokomotiv.
7José HolebasOlympiacos@Marseille4.5MThere is a real chance here that Marseille finish the group stages without scoring a single goal.
8Sergiño DestBarcelona@Ferencvárosi5M
9Mats HummelsBorussia DortmundVs SS Lazio5.1M
10David AlabaBayern Munich@Atletico Madrid5.5MIf he plays OOP in midfield as rumored then it increases his bonus point and attacking potential.

Goalkeepers

1Marco SportielloAtalantaVs Midtjylland4.5MThe away game against Midtjylland is the only time Atalanta have kept a clean sheet and they will hope to do so again at home.
2Thibaut CourtoisReal Madrid@Shakhtar Donetsk5.9M
3EdersonManchester City@Porto6M
4José SáOlympiacos@Marseille4.5MSá has the most shots saved in the tournament after Neuer (24) with 20 and plays goalless Marseille.
