Orlando City SC take on the New England Revolution this Saturday and we have put together a list of a few impact players from the Lions who are worthy of consideration in your Draftkings roster over the weekend.
Haven’t tried Draftkings? It’s really easy. Each player is given a fictitious $50,000 to spend on assembling his or her roster. Players’ salaries are determined by their on-field performance, FPPG, or Fantasy Points Per Game. Each roster consists of two forwards, two midfielders, two defenders, a keeper, and one flex spot (any field player).
Here are some Orlando City players to watch against the Revolution this Saturday:
Aurélien Collin - DEF: 4.2 FPPG, $3,800 - As the partnership between Aurélien Collin and David Mateos continues to mature, you can expect both to start cleaning some sheets from the back. At just $3,800 Collin is an absolute steal this week. Don’t forget, the Frenchman scored off a set piece the last time these two teams met.
Servando Carrasco - MID: 1.5 FPPG, $3,900 - Carrasco will likely start against New England and with his ability to get forward from the defensive midfield he’s great value at his price. Remember that Jermaine Jones will be absent this weekend for the Revs, which could open up some space for Orlando.
Adrian Winter - FWD: 1.4 FPPG, $5,000 - Winter has left a fantastic first impression during his time on the pitch for Orlando City. If you read into his price, it looks like he has impressed the decision makers at Draftkings as well. Look for Winter to start on the right side on Saturday and make an impact with his speed and passing ability.
Around the League:
Nelson Valdez - FWD, Seattle: 7.8 FPPG, $5,600 - The Sounders’ summer transfer window acquisition has made a positive impact for the club since his arrival. As with most new transfers, his price has remained relatively low which makes him a good value for your squad on the weekend. The Sounders will host Toronto FC on Saturday night.
Quincy Amarikwa - FWD, San Jose: 12.6 FPPG, $7,000 - Both he and his team have been on a tear as of late and it might be smart to double down as the Philadelphia Union make the trip out west. Amarikwa has logged a goal or an assist in six of his last eight games. That makes him a safe bet for your team this weekend.
