DraftKings fantasy football is very similiar to Fantasy Premier League (FPL), but does not require full-time commitment like FPL as it offers year round games that you can play as little or as much as you want. 

Here are our fix standout selections for the DraftKings' gameweek 15 daily contest (Tuesday 4th December ):

GK / Fabianski / $5,600

Fabianski is a great choice for your goalkeeper this week as he faces a visit from the lowest away scorers in the division, Cardiff, who have scored only two goals from their six away matches. As always, saves are a big part of a goalkeeper’s appeal in DraftKings, given +2 points for each save, and Fabianski fits this criteria brilliantly as he has made 57 saves in his fourteen matches so far, second only to Hart with 62. West Ham looked to have shored up defensively, keeping a clean sheet against Newcastle last gameweek, and conceding only 46 shots in the box (SiB) over the last six gameweeks, fewer than Man. Utd and Tottenham. No team in the division has attempted fewer shots (43) or shots on target (SoT) (14) than Cardiff on their travels, and our Fix predicted points and stats feature suggests West Ham have a 36% chance of a clean sheet.

D / Duffy / $3,400

Brighton are a team whose survival hopes depend on their home form, and with Palace visiting the Amex Stadium in gameweek 15, Duffy is a great value selection for your squad. He gets the nod over his centre-back partner Dunk as he has had 11 goal attempts versus the Englishman’s four, and scored a goal more. The fact that the DraftKings format awards a point for every shot adds to the appeal of the Irishman, who averages 0.8 shots per game. He also averages 1.5 interceptions per match, and 0.5 tackles, both of which are useful in the DraftKings scoring format, with +0.5 and +1 points respectively. His opponents Palace have attempted only 38 SiB on their travels, the fifth worst in the league, and our Fix predicted points and stats feature suggests Brighton have a 41% chance of a clean sheet.

M /Sané / $10,400

Sané has registered either a goal or an assist in each of the seven games he has started this season, with a total of five goals and seven assists in those matches. Over the last four gameweeks, the German has the same number of shots (10) and SoT (five) as Sterling, and has attempted the same number of assists as the Englishman (nine), indicating that he can match Sterling’s output at a lower price. In fact, the German averages 1.9 shots (+1 point in DraftKings), 0.4 goals (+10 points) and 0.4 assists (+6 points) per game which highlights his high ceiling in this format. Sané has also averaged 2.6 crosses a game, an action which awards 0.75 points in the DraftKings format. No team has taken more SoT than the Champions’ 25 over the same period, or scored more goals (16), an average of four a game. Their opponents Watford have conceded seven goals in the last four games, only three teams have conceded more. The Champions have scored 14 goals past the Hornets in their last three meetings, and our Fix predicted points and stats feature backs Watford defence to be breached again, with only a 7% chance of a clean sheet, the lowest of any team this week.

F / Wilson / $8,300

Trailing only Aubameyang in the golden boot race, Wilson faces Huddersfield at the Vitality Stadium, a fixture in which he scored a hattrick last season. The Englishman averages 2.6 shots and 1.1 SoT per game, and looks ideal for the DraftKings format which awards +1 point for every goal attempt and every SoT. He also averages 0.6 crosses per game, which is rare for a striker, an action that awards him +0.75 points in this format. In fact, only Agüero (28) has attempted more SiB in home matches than Wilson’s 21, and his creativity stats are impressive as well, only Agüero (13) and Perez (15) have created more chances on home turf than Wilson’s 11, highlighting his potential for goals (+10 points) and assists (+6). Their opponents Huddersfield have conceded 14 goals on the road, only four sides have conceded more, and our Fix predicted points and stats feature estimates that the Cherries have a 82% chance of breaking through the Terriers defence once again. .

How to play DraftKings Fantasy Football

For those unaccustomed to this fantastic daily cash game, you are required to select eight players with a $50,000 salary cap. The structure is as follows;

GK -- D x2 -- M x2 -- F x2 -- UTIL (utility player)

The utility player can be either a D (Defender), M (Midfielder) or F (Forward) and will score points in the same way as the other selections. However, you will notice your budget has been spread thin, so, this is all about finding a hidden gem that could score well. For example, a defender that is not typically a big scorer but is playing against a team that struggle to score, therefore heightening the chance of (clean sheet, tackles won, passed intercepted etc.) points.

The format allows you the luxury of entering into a variety of contests including beginner tournaments/leagues, head to heads (against one other opponent), 50/50s (where you win if you finish in the top half) and many more.

The full scoring breakdown is as follows -
