DraftKings features several dozen DFS contests for the English Premier League Gameweek 8 scheduled for this coming Saturday, October 14. The standard lineup of each DraftKings contest has one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player.
Defenders were discussed in yesterday’s article. Today we are adding our recommendations for midfielders and forwards. Salaries are shown in parenthesis.
Midfield: David Silva (MCI, $7900): A favorable fixture against Stoke City should give Silva plenty of opportunities to score fantasy points.
Forward/Midfield: Eden Hazard (CHE, $9600): Chelsea players ought to dominate this week’s DFS lineup due to a favorable fixture with Crystal Palace and Hazard was brilliant last week against Atletico Madrid.
Forward: Michy Batshuayi (CHE, $7800): With A. Morata doubtful, Batshuayi, who scored a last minute goal against Atletico Madrid, is another Chelsea player to consider this week.
