MATCHES (EST)

3:00 p.m: Tottenham v. Dortmund
3:00 p.m: Ajax v. Real Madrid

FORWARDS

Fernando Llorente, TOT v. DOR ($10,000): This is a weird pick for my top forward, but unless you think Karim Benzema ($13,000) will score a brace, it's the right play. Even Gareth Bale ($12,500) still isn't fully fit and likely won't make it to 70 minutes, something he hasn't done since December. Llorente is fairly cheap for a guy starting up front for Spurs, and while he's not as good as the other options, he's made the score sheet in his last three appearances. The other part of the equation is Dortmund. While they were impressive in the group stage, they haven't been as good on the road and have allowed three goals in each of their last two matches, both at home. You can either spend on Benzema or Bale, or save some money and hope one of those guys doesn't go off.

Dusan Tadic, AJA v. MAD ($9,000): Tadic proved his viability in the group stage, not only showing his upside with a couple braces, but also with a floor of at least 10 fantasy points in every match. That floor is the reason to trust him above teammate Klaas-Jan Huntelaar ($7,500), who doesn't do much outside of making the score sheet. Tadic also comes in with 12 goals in his last 13 matches in all competitions.
