The result of Watford-Manchester United is on everyone’s lips, but the surprise of the week for me was the Chelsea-Liverpool match. Conte’s team is not unbeaten anymore.
There are eight English Premier League games scheduled for next Saturday, Sept. 24, seven of which are featured by DraftKings.
Note that DraftKings offers weekly EPL contests.
The standard lineup of each DraftKings contest has one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player. We have an extra name for each position to help you negotiate the salary cap.
Goalkeepers (choose one): Joel Robles, Steve Mandanda
Defenders (choose two): Curtis Davies (my preference for this week), Phil Jagielka, James Tomkins, David Luiz
Midfielders (choose two): Dele Alli, Willian, Philippe Coutinho
Forwards (choose two): Sergio Aguero (he is back from suspension; if you cannot fit him in your lineup due to the salary cap, try fielding a relatively inexpensive defender, like Steve Cook), Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Firmino
Utility (choose one): Raheem Sterling, Sadio Mane
The game I will watch is Arsenal-Chelsea. That means I will try to fit Alexis Sanchez or Diego Costa or both on my fantasy roster. It is more fun to watch a soccer game when you have players from your fantasy team in it. Which game will you be watching?
