English Premier League (EPL) Gameweek 12 is scheduled for this weekend. DraftKings features several contests for the seven EPL matches to be held on Saturday, November 18.
The standard lineup of each DraftKings contest has one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player. Today forwards and, potentially, utility are in our focus.
Gabriel Jesus (MCI), $9,800. We have stayed away from the City’s strikers Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus due the uncertainty of rotation. This weekend there is a good chance that Aguero will be held out of the match against the Foxes due to his near-fainting in Argentina.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE), $5,200. Selection of budget-busting Jesus is forcing us to look for potential bargains elsewhere. Calvert-Lewin’s 10 shots at goal in the last three games and 8 shots from the penalty area were only second to most expensive fantasy players.
Tammy Abraham (SWA), $6,000. One of the best young PL players, Abraham is the top striker for Swansea City with 4 goals this campaign.
