EPL DFS Breakdown - Saturday September 19th

It’s Gameweek 2 of the new Premier League season. This week we once again have a set of staggered starts. We’re lucky that the last two games carry fewer uncertainty than the first two games. I expect these games to be high scoring affairs. The main GPP on DraftKings does offer some enticement with a $50K Counter Attack that offers $10K to first place. I will personally be entering with a single lineup into this competition and focus more on a balanced build with high floor players that also carry the upside of potential involvement in goal scoring opportunities.

Speaking of goal scoring opportunities, I think these games will be more free flowing and attacking given the teams that are participating. My normal research process for slates begins with looking at the odds, then the set piece takers for each team, then targeting the high floor players, then the most likely high upside players. So here we go.

Team Odds

Leeds (-162) vs Fulham (+475)

Manchester United (-335) vs Crystal Palace (+850)

Arsenal (-200) vs West Ham (+510)
