UEFA Championship League group stage Matchday 6, day 1 is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, December 5.
DraftKings features several dozen DFS contests. The standard lineup of each DraftKings contest has one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player.
Hurry up, these contests lock Tuesday at 2:45 PM Eastern Time.
Goalkeeper: Marc Ter Stegen (Barcelona, $5,500): Never ignore Barcelona players unless their high salary becomes a problem. It turns out that, surprisingly, Ter Stegen is not the most expensive goalie. Let’s take advantage of it considering also that Barcelona will very likely come out with a win.
Defender: Alex Sandro (Juventus, $5,700): One of the best left-backs, Sandro is good at crossing into the penalty area, a trait that will help him accumulate fantasy points for passes and assists.
Midfielder: Arturo Vidal (Bayern Munich, $5,200): The game will have no effect on the standings, but Bayern Munich, playing in front of its fans, has something to prove. That’s especially true now that Lionel Messi has indicated that Bayern is one of the four Barcelona rivals for the CL crown.
Forward: Edin Dzeko (Roma, 9,900): Roma is highly favorite at home against Azerbaijan’s Qarabag FC. Dzeko is Roma’s center-forward hence he will lead the charge.
