Let’s turn our attention to the English Premier League matches that will be played tomorrow since the DraftKings contests for today's games will lock in a few hours.

Matches for Wednesday, February 1

West Ham – Manchester City
Manchester United – Hull City
Stoke City – Everton

Our recommendations for your fantasy lineups for DraftKings contests for Wednesday's games are below.  

According to the English bookmakers, the Manchester United – Hull City game is a no-contest. The Red Devils are highly favored and should walk away with three points. Manchester City is also expected to come out on top, although the betting odds are not as large. Stoke City – Everton will be an interesting, hard fought battle between two mid-table teams.

In light of the game odds, today we offer three separate fantasy lineup suggestions. Two lineups are Manchester United centric, one with and the other without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a necessary exercise due to the demands of his high salary. The other lineup is centered on Manchester City players. The standard lineup for each DraftKings contest includes one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player.

Manchester United without Zlatan Ibrahimovic based fantasy lineup:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea ($6,000)
Defenders: Harry Maguire ($3,600), Phil Jones ($3,400)
Midfielders: Paul Pogba ($7,700), Henrikh Mkhitaryan ($7,600)
Forwards: Wayne Rooney ($7,100), Romelu Lukaku ($7,800)
Utility: Juan Mata ($6,800)

Manchester United with Zlatan Ibrahimovic based fantasy lineup:

Goalkeeper: David de Gea ($6,000)
Defenders: Ashley Williams ($3,200), Winston Reid ($3,300)
Midfielders: Paul Pogba ($7,700), Henrikh Mkhitaryan ($7,600)
Forwards: Wayne Rooney ($7,100), Marco Arnautovic ($5,400)
Utility: Zlatan Ibrahimovic ($9,200)

Manchester City based fantasy lineup:

Goalkeeper: Claudio Bravo ($5,400)
Defenders: Nicolas Otamendi ($3,500), Harry Maguire ($3,400)
Midfielders: Raheem Sterling ($7,500), David Silva ($6,600)
Forwards: Romelu Lukaku ($7,800), Kevin De Bruyne ($9,800)
Utility: Joe Allen ($5,800)

*Note that Sergio Aguero and Andy Carroll are questionable as of this writing.
