FORWARDS

Cristiano Ronaldo, JUV at ATM (€32): Ronaldo is the most expensive player on the slate, but that isn't likely to deter him from being the highest-owned player in cash games and GPPs. While his anytime goal scorer odds aren't overwhelmingly high, his shot volume alone gives him an excellent floor, as he comes in averaging 6.78, including 2.71 on target, during Serie A play, and 6.48 and 1.62, respectively, during the Champions League. But you don't just get a floor with Ronaldo, as he also scored seven goals on 35 shots (15 on target) and had three assists on 15 chances created in his last six games. You could certainly fade Ronaldo, but you better nail your forwards if you do.

Sergio Aguero, MCI at S04 (€27): Aguero is the first player to turn to if you want to fade Ronaldo, though there will probably be plenty of fantasy players who decide to roster both forwards. No player has higher anytime goal-scorer odds than Aguero, who bagged a hat trick in two of his last three matches. There is certainly a case for a Manchester City stack because they are heavily favored despite playing away to Schalke, with such a move putting Raheem Sterling (€26) and Leroy Sane (€24) firmly in play.
