Welcome back, RotoBallers! Professional sports are getting very messy due to a lot of positive Covid tests and EPL is not exempted. I originally started this post when there were still five games left on the main list. Then on Thursday afternoon it was announced that five games this weekend would be postponed due to the Covid outbreak, and that happened as three of them hit the medium. That brought us down to two games; sooner or later. For a long time, FanDuel only had a single game for the late game, so I wrote an article just for that (also featured on the website). However, they have now put together a complete list for both games which I will break down here. Please read this analysis for me DFS . Football Picks on RotoBaller and see how to get success on Saturday’s blocker.
Much of my DFS content will be EPL related, however, there’s more to the football than what’s happening in the UK.

EPL DFS squad selection – Overview
Aston Villa vs Burnley
I think this game may be canceled initially with some Covid cases in Burnley’s club. However, it will go according to schedule with Aston Villa (-135) favored at home. Burnley is currently sitting in 18th place and has been playing pretty badly this year – especially in attack. Aston Villa have also not had a good record this season with mixed results, however, they are still firmly in the middle of the table. Burnley’s defense has been significantly worse this year, so we can target some Villa attackers in this game. This will be the late game that you want to make the most of with just a few recommended plays in this game. Total over/under is 2.5 and under is -122.
Leeds vs Arsenal
After a bad start to a season that saw relegation talk, Arsenal (-105) quickly climbed to 4th place. Arsenal won two games in a row and faced Leeds to take on the team. just been held by Manchester City with a score of 7-0. This game should be a good environment for a fantasy game – as well as most Leeds games. Total over/under is 2.5 proportionally high with a too high probability of -133.
FanDuel DFS Striker / Midfielder
Alexandre Lacazette ($21) will be a strong fantasy pick in the future with Aubameyang and Arteta not seeing each other’s eyes. It was announced on Friday that Aubameyang would not even be available to be selected for Saturday’s squad. Lacazette looks like she’s finally found her form in the last two games with one goal, one assist, three chances created and four shots on target among the stats. other defense. He has a top game on Saturday and the network’s best any-time scoring rate is +140 against the Leeds defense, who have just been scored seven times in a single game. They have scored and other meaningful peripherals against attackers throughout the season. Emile Smith-Rowe ($18) is another Arsenal attacker in a plus on this medium who you should consider for your captaincy. His combination is great and ESR has scored in his last two games for Arsenal.
Right behind Lacazette in any-time goalscoring rate on this table is a pair of Aston Villa attacking players in my group of players on this board. Ollie Watkins ($19) has been playing well lately and has a goal and an impressive 51.2 point game against Norwich earlier in the week. He is in a nice position to start a scoring streak. Danny Ings ($16) looks like he’ll be back in the starting lineup for Aston Villa this weekend. He’s too cheap for the upstream target he has. He actually has the best odds to score in this game which is +150. I see no reason to use both Villa’s attacking players, but picking the one that best suits your squad build is a great way for Arsenal and Leeds players to blow off steam. .
The two mid-tier players that I will be reviewing on this board are Martin Odegaard ($16) and BuKayo Saka ($17). Arsenal have a sweet game with many goals, shots on target, chances created and other peripheral conditions Leeds allow. Stacking 2-3 Arsenal players is a smart tactic on this scheme. I would give Odegaard over Saka, but both are possible.
Jack Harrison ($10) and Granite Xhaka ($7) are my two value attackers on this interceptor.
FanDuel DFS Defenders
Leeds give up more combined defensive play than any other team on the list, so we will continue to pick Arsenal players at the DEF. Kieran Tierney ($10) is a cheap way to reach this match as one of the cheapest expected starters on interceptors regardless of location. He is averaging 16.9 FanDuel points in his three games since returning to the regular starting lineup. White Ben ($11) can also score pretty well this game with his tackles and interceptions, and he’s also reasonably priced on Saturday.
Burnley has conceded the most goals in the league, and it’s not close. That would be beneficial Tyrone Mings ($13) a ton. His best defensive stats in the void. He can certainly hit double-digit difference in this game and has great potential for a comeback with a clean sheet bonus also possible. Burnley has just six goals in eight road matches. Ezri Konsa ($9) might be a cheaper way to get someone at Aston Villa who can collect the payments, but I might prefer Mings if you can find a paycheck.
Goalkeeper FanDuel DFS
Emiliano Martinez ($12) is my favorite GK on this medium. I just mentioned how low Burnley is on the road. They are scoring an average of 0.75 goals per away game. Villa’s defense is not rock solid this year, but it won’t take too much to keep Burnley’s own goal. Martinez will also receive a winning bonus if Aston Villa are ready to play at home.
Thanks for reading my EPL DFS . lineup selection crash on RotoBaller and good luck!
