Due to the feedback we got for our Week 16 Ultimate DF Premier League team, I decided to stick with the idea of doing the full team (shoutout to everyone who requested this). We are back to focusing on the Saturday fixtures (even the morning match) to make sure you will have some more spending money for the holiday season. As always, if some players in this lineup don't work for you for financial reasons or you just don't like them, tweet us at DST_Tweets for other players who will also have amazing fantasy weekends.
Thibaut Courtois: Chelsea F.C. - 5,500
This isn't necessary a pick due to the skill of Thibaut Courtois, but it is for just how dominant Chelsea are. Thibaut Courtois has looked good, but I would pick Brad Friedel on Chelsea, that's how good they are. Crystal Palace is complete and utter shit, and I can't see Zaha and Benteke being able to do anything with a powerful back five that Chelsea will bring. A Clean Sheet is not just probable, but it's guaranteed.
José Holebas: Watford F.C. - 5,300
Holebas and Watford go up against Sunderland in what will be a big game for the Greek (actually German but he's Greek) to shine in. Holebas may be pricey for a defender, but the fact is he is worth it. He comes into this game with two goals, three assists, and a decent 7.2 match rating. This is one of the riskier picks as Watford’s back line can be a bit poor, but the upside is too much not to take him!
César Azpilicueta: Chelsea F.C. - 4,500
César Azpilicueta is coming off signing a new deal with Chelsea, and now the Spaniard is primed for a big game against Crystal Palace. Chelsea are just too good for Palace and with how well that back five is playing, he is bound for some major clean sheet points. This is a pretty simple/easy pick.
Joe Allen: Stoke City F.C. - 6,700
Joe Allen and Stoke City host Leicester in what will be the shock of the weekend. As we saw against Bournemouth, Leicester aren’t a very good away team, and I think with how stable Stoke City looked against Southampton Allen will have a big game. Even though Marko Arnautović is out, I think they will have enough to even beat Leicester, and Joe Allen will be the reason why.
Leroy Fer: Swansea City A.F.C. - 5,700
Leroy Fer and Swansea City travel to Middlesbrough who are the second worst home team in the Premier League. I think due to this Bob Bradley will give players like Fer more chances to get forward which I think will help Fer get an assist and even a goal. Once again, he is a bit risky but for the price and upside, he’s worth it.
Diego Costa: Chelsea F.C. - 9,600
Diego Costa is on fire this season. Now with Eden Hazard questionable for this game, all of Chelsea’s chances will come through him. For this reason, he is a forward you NEED if you want to be up in the top 10 of the Daily Fantasy Rankings. With how bad Crystal Palace are and how unorganized they look it’s pretty much a given he will score.
Salomón Rondón: West Bromwich Albion F.C. - 7,000
Salomón Rondón is coming off a gorgeous hat trick (all headers) and now West Brom host Manchester United. Even though many people believe United will beat them, the biggest factor is that Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly are injured and I think Rondón will fucking DOMINATE Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo.
Cesc Fàbregas: Chelsea F.C. - 5,400
Cesc Fàbregas is an ideal player for this weekend due to his amazing ability to pass. He has looked great this season and if you can get a player of his quality on that good of a team for less than 6k you NEED to take him. Last week I picked Yaya Toure, which was risky and I was wrong, but this isn’t risky one bit. You NEED him in your team.
