UEFA Championship League Round of 16 begins Tuesday February 13. Two games are scheduled:
Juventus – Tottenham Spurs and
FC Basel – Manchester City
Note that a separate article will be posted for the two games scheduled for Wednesday, February 14, and that DraftKings features several contests for both days.
Putting together a DFS roster for Tuesday contests would be a no brainer if it were not for the hated salary cap. I wanted to load up with City players but because of the $50,000 salary limit I had to look elsewhere.
That meant going to the Juventus-Tottenham match to ensure that dreaded salary cap balance, and here are some of the names I like.
Giorgio Chiellini ($3,500) – Defender – Juventus: Chiellini will be attached to Harry Kane. Expect tackles and clearances.
Miralem Pjanic ($7,700) – Midfielder – Juventus: Pjanic is Juventus free-kick taker; potential exists for both a goal and an assist.
Son Hueng-Min ($5,800) – Forward – Tottenham: With Kane handcuffed by Chiellini, Son has a chance to score.
Serge Aurier ($4,300) – Defender – Tottenham: Was rested over the weekend against Arsenal
