What Saturday’s EPL DFS slate lacks in top-end teams, it makes up for with intriguing matchups. Only one of the top seven teams in the table plays Saturday, but we do have eight of the top 10 teams in goals allowed. There are a couple of studs that you could certainly chase, and some cheap players to enable them, but you could get a lot of mileage out of targeting mid-priced players with good matchups and goal-scoring upside.


EPL DFS Soccer Picks March 18

EPL DFS Top Goalkeepers

Jordan PickfordEVECHE  710.15
Everton is in the bottom half of the league in goals scored and the top half in clean sheets allowed. I believe in Sean Dyche and I'm not afraid of this matchup. There also isn't anyone on this slate I am excited to pay up for.
Fraser ForsterTOTSOU54007.791211.50
Forster is averaging 17.25 FD fantasy points in his last four starts. Southampton is last in goals scored but 11th in saves allowed. Forster offers a nice floor and a good chance at a win and clean sheet.
Jose SaWOLLEE50006.65119.98
This matchup looks close and should be low-scoring, so I wouldn't blame anyone who pivots to Illan Meslier. Sa gets the nod for me because Wolves are at home and have been better defensively. They have also scored fewer goals than Leeds but both teams have allowed 67 saves and 10+ clean sheets.

EPL DFS Top Forwards

Leon BaileyAVLBOU65007.61169.26
Bailey has the best combination of price, safety and ceiling on this team. It also helps that he is forward-eligible on DraftKings.
I usually find it difficult to trust Richarlison for fantasy, but that may be a mistake. He is averaging 12.0 DK fantasy points in his last three starts, and he has another good matchup. If you can't afford Harry Kane or you want to stack Spurs, Richarlison is a great choice.
Ivan ToneyBRELEI1010015.172223.42
I went back and forth between Toney and Kane. In the end, Toney gets the nod for being at home, slightly cheaper and with a slightly better matchup.

EPL DFS Top Midfielders

Bertrand TraoreAVLBOU81003.5483.00
Traore had two crosses, a shot and a chance created last week in 26 minutes. If he starts Saturday, I'm going to have an awfully hard time keeping him out of my FanDuel lineups.
James MaddisonLEIBRE960018.372023.80
Maddison has been good all season long but he is safer on DraftKings if Victor Kristiansen sits again. Kristiansen has been on corners, which limits Maddison's crosses, but on FanDuel we care far more about Maddison's 10 chances created in his last three games.
Mathias JensenBRELEI66009.41412.46
Jensen is an affordable attacker who will take corners, send in crosses and has a great matchup against Leicester. His ceiling isn't particularly high but that is true of most of the midfielders in his price range.
Joe RothwellBOUAVL37002.0884.11
Rothwell has been splitting corners with Philip Billing and while Billing's price is the highest its been since September, Rothwell remains a bargain. So long as Hamed Traore remains out, Rothwell looks like one of the best punt plays on the DK slate.
Mykhailo MudrykCHEEVE  164.12
Someone is going to have to create chances and take shots for Chelsea and if Joao Felix comes off the bench again, Mudryk will probably be that guy. He had two chances created and an assist against Chelsea last week.

EPL DFS Top Defenders

Michael KeaneEVECHE  1112.48
Keane is averaging 14.9 FD fantasy points in his three starts this season, with 14 clearances in his last two games. Keane should rack up defensive stats and I thought he has an outside shot at a clean sheet.
Ricardo PereiraLEIBRE39004.68116.60
Pereira was great against Chelsea last week, with five crosses, three chances created and an assist. Only two teams have allowed more crosses than Brentford this season.
Ben DaviesTOTSOU44005.731011.63
I'm going to keep banging the drum for Davies until his price increases or until he moves back to center back full time. In his three starts at wing back, Davies is averaging 9.43 DK fantasy points. No one on the slate is averaging more than 7.6 fppg this season. If Ivan Perisic starts, you can pivot to him or Pedro Porro.
Cristian RomeroTOTSOU37003.921212.56
Southampton has allowed the most clearances of any team on Saturday's slate and Romero leads Tottenham with 3.64 clearances per 90 minutes. Romero isn't super cheap but he is safe.
