The Odds:

THE REFEREES;

5 from Italy

1 from Poland

THE FANTASY:

DRAFT KINGS SHOWDOWN MODE

THE PLAYERS:

Eden Hazard ($12,500) Chelsea–  Best player in the entire stadium. 16 goals. 15 assists.  Controls almost all set pieces.  All-world consistency.  High Floor  High ceiling . Last game after 7 years in blue- will go out on top. Cash/GPP  CORE

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ($12,000) Arsenal-  EPL Goal Scoring Champ.  Has 7 goals in his last 4 games.  Highest Anytime Goal Scorer Odds 37%. CASH/GPP  CORE

Willian ($10,600) Chelsea– The poor mans Hazard.  Has been sneaky solid all season. Just look at the logs .  Nice floor. Likely Hazard pivot in GPP. CASH 

Pedro ($11,300) Chelsea- slides into spot if Willian is out. 

Alexandre Lacazette ($11,100) Arsenal- Can be a pivot off of Aubameyang or can be in same lineup.  Not afraid to shoot.  CASH/GPP

 

Oliver Giroud ($10,800) Chelsea- Do people really know he leads Chelsea in scoring in Europa?? Narrative- Former Arsenal attacker.

Granit Xhaka ($8,900) Arsenal- Has had mediocre year but should see corners.  With Mkhitaryan out he should be super chalk. Pricey for 0 goals and 3 assists on season.  CASH/GPP

Mesut Ozil ($5,800) Arsenal- Don’t count him out but is having a season to forget with only 2 assists (compared to at least 8 the past three seasons each) CASH

Ross Barkley ($6,800) Chelsea- Role player has given it his all this year..another one not afraid to shoot the ball. GPP

Sead Kolasinac ($7,200) Arsenal- Five assists in little minutes.  Takes advantage of every second on the field.  Expect him to move forward often on the attack.

Alonso ($8,600) & Emerson ($7,500) Chelsea- Just look at their Logs. These Defensemen that can hold their own.

Alex Iwobi ($9,100) Arsenal- May get a chance to finally shine if he’s in the lineup due to Mkhitaryan being out.

 

BEST OF LUCK EVERYONE!! IT’S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE SEASON
