English Premier League (EPL) Gameweek 18 is scheduled for this coming weekend. DraftKings features several contests for the six EPL matches to be held on Saturday, December 16.
The standard lineup of each DraftKings contest has one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player. Today’s focus is on Forwards.
Eden Hazard (CHE, $10,900): A favorable schedule for the Blues makes Hazard an appealing candidate for our top striker.
Troy Deeney (WAT, $5,600): Considering that most attention and budget will be dedicated to the Manchester City/Tottenham Court clash, adding Deeney’s reasonable salary in the mix is a good move.
Pedro (CHE, $7,700): Alvaro Morata’s injury makes Pedro, and Bakayoko key Blues attacking assets. Both have scored during this past mid-week game telling us that Conte may keep the same formation against Southampton.
