MATCHES (EDT)

FORWARDS

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. RBS (€29): Salah is even with Timo Werner (€30) atop the anytime goalscorer odds chart, and he's well-positioned to snap out of his three-game goalless skid at home against Red Bull Salzburg. Goals have been flowing on both sides when Salzburg takes the field, which bodes well for all Liverpool attackers in a game with the highest total on the slate.

Yussuf Poulsen, RBL v. OL (€11): Poulsen's goal-scoring odds are on-par with the likes of Antoine Griezmann (€27) and Tammy Abraham (€26), making him one of the best salary-savers on the board. He assisted in his 2019-20 UCL opener and is in a good spot to build on that in a good home matchup versus Lyon.

Emil Forsberg, RBL v. OL (€10): He's not a lock to start, but Forsberg has at least a goal or an assist in four straight Bundesliga appearances. That kind of production is worth keeping an eye out for when starting XI's drop on Wednesday.

MIDFIELDERS

Hakim Ziyech, AJA at VAL (€27): Ziyech does it all in the Ajax attack, and he has the lofty stats to back it up with four goals and four assists through his first eight games of the season. He was a key part of Ajax's run to the semi-final last season and should be up to his usual tricks on Wednesday at Valencia.

Marcel Sabitzer, RBL v. OL (€14): Sabitzer plays a pivotal role in the Leipzig attack, and he checks in as a strong value compared to players in similar roles for other teams. He has a strong share of set pieces and has taken multiple shots in all but one of his seven appearances this season.

Arthur, BAR v. INT (€13): Arthur has a share of set pieces for Barcelona, who are the second-biggest favorite on the slate. Set pieces aside, Arthur does enough across the board to flirt with double-digit points on a regular basis, and he opens up a lot at a near-minimum salary.

DEFENDERS

Trent Alexander-Arnold, LIV v. RBS (€20): Alexander-Arnold already has a goal and two assists through the first seven games of the Premier League season, and a defender with that kind of attacking upside justifies his lofty price tag in a game that is expected to have multiple goals.

Douglas Santos, ZNT v. BEF (€12): Santos stands over some set pieces for Zenit, giving his fantasy appeal a big boost with the ability to impact the score sheet from dead balls. On top of that, clean sheet points are very attainable considering he's playing at home and in the game with the lowest implied total.

Nelson Semedo, BAR v. INT (€10): A minimum priced defender for the team with the best clean sheet odds on the slate? Count me in! It's no guarantee that Semedo starts again, but after helping Barca post a shutout in their Group F opener, he's well worth looking for when starting lineups are announced.

GOALKEEPER

Adrian, LIV v. RBS (€10): While Liverpool are the heaviest favorite on the slate, Red Bull Salzburg should see a fair share of opportunities given their attacking style of play. If Adrian can turn those chances into saves, he could be in for a big point haul once potential win and clean sheet bonuses are factored in, and getting that all at minimum price is a gift.
