Pasko’s UEFA DFS Picks

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Championship League group stage matchday 4 is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, October 31 and Wednesday, November 1. DraftKings features several dozen DFS contests for both days.

The standard lineup of each DraftKings contest has one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders, two forwards and one utility player.
Today we are covering goalkeepers. There are plenty of choices and a solid path is to select goalkeepers from strong teams, playing at home, facing weak rivals.

Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid, $6,000) Qarabag has scored a single goal in this campaign. Oblak is almost guaranteed a clean sheet. He is the most expensive DraftKings goalkeeper for a good reason.

Alphonse Areola (PSG, $5,800).  This week Kylian Mbappe’ received the Golden Boy 2017 award. PSG is strong this year and has a good chance of reaching the finals. Combine that with the fact that Anderlecht has not scored yet and the choice of Areola becomes apparent.

Note that DraftKings the draft window for today’s matches close at 2:45 EST.
