The Premier League season continues with six games on the schedule on Saturday. That means there will be plenty of options to choose from when it comes to Saturday’s DraftKings EPL daily fantasy leagues. We did the research to present you with the best combination of star talent and strong sleeper value options this weekend. Here is a look at the optimal lineup for Saturday’s DraftKings EPL fantasy leagues.
GK: Joel Robles, Everton
Everton has won two of its last three to remain in contention for a Europa League spot but they are running out of time to make their move in to the top-five and they simply can’t afford to leave any more points on the table. Everton showed a strong sense of urgency in its 3-0 win over West Brom in its last outing and could easily produce a similar result against a Hull City side that is just below the relegation line. Robles could be in line for a clean sheet victory as the best option on the board for this week’s DraftKings contests.
D: Stephen Ward, Burnley
While Everton might be the favorite to record a clean sheet win this weekend, Burnley could be in the mix as well with a favorable matchup against a Sunderland side that is buried at the bottom of the table. Burnley is desperately trying to end its terrible slide and a matchup with Sunderland might be the perfect opportunity in what should be a low scoring game.
D: Phil Jagielka, Everton
After breaking down Everton’s favorable matchup versus Hull, it only makes sense to turn back to their roster for at least one strong value play at a defender position. Jagielka might be the perfect sleeper pick as a value play that could really benefit from a clean sheet bonus.
M: Kevin Mirallas, Everton
Everton will try to shut the door on Hull but they will also want to score some goals as well and that is where Mirallas fits in to our lineup. Everton could easily score two goals on Saturday and Mirallas should be in the mix as a strong midfield pick at a reasonable $7K price tag.
M: George Boyd, Burnley
Boyd might not be the most popular pick on the board but that is part of what makes him such an intriguing option this week at just $3.6K. Boyd will likely play the full 90 minutes versus Sunderland with a good chance he makes an impact on the scoresheet. At just $3.6K, Boyd is an excellent sleeper midfield option in EPL fantasy this weekend.
F: Diego Costa, Chelsea
After saving a substantial amount of money at the other positions, we can afford to spend a little more at the forward and FLEX positions with Costa as our first choice. Chelsea can move one step closer to clinching top spot in the table with a win over Stoke City and Costa is the top forward play on the board for this week’s DraftKings EPL fantasy competitions.
F: Romelu Lukaku, Everton
After stacking some players from Everton at the goalkeeper, defender and midfield positions it only makes sense to go back to their roster for their best attacking player in Lukaku. He isn’t as expensive as some of the other forward options on the board but Lukaku has the potential to produce one of the best EPL fantasy scores among forwards this weekend.
FLEX: Riyad Mahrez, Leicester City
The final spot on our roster goes to the best option available that we can still afford with just over $7K left over to address our FLEX position. Mahrez has been Leicester’s best player for some time now and he is still the most likely option to produce at a high level from a fantasy perspective this weekend. Leicester will be in tough against West Ham this weekend but their scoring potential is high enough to make it worth adding Mahrez to complete our DraftKings EPL fantasy lineup for Saturday.
