MATCHES (EDT)

Saturday, 10:00 a.m: Belgium v. England
Sunday, 11:00 a.m: France v. Croatia

FORWARDS

Antoine Griezmann, FRA v. CRO ($12,500): Backing Griezmann over the less expensive Kylian Mbappe ($11,500) should be worth it in the end. On most set pieces for France, Griezmann has scored or assisted in four of six matches (five matches if you don't count the Denmark snoozer). He's a safer bet to make the score sheet and create chances, while Mbappe is all about creating from the run of play. He's been great in the tournament and will draw plenty of fouls, but as seen in the Uruguay win (zero fantasy points), he's not a lock to create chances, and drawing fouls doesn't do anything for fantasy scoring.

Michy Batshuayi, BEL v. ENG ($7,500): If you don't want to guess between Griezmann and Mbappe, go with whoever starts in Saturday's match for Belgium. If Romelu Lukaku ($9,500) starts, he's the choice, but I think Batshuayi will be the guy up front. He's been solid in limited appearances, scoring against Tunisia, and while he only had one shot on goal in the first match against England, neither side wanted to win. This time around, the over/under is at three goals (the first match was under 2.5) and Belgium are slightly favored.

Harry Kane, ENG v. BEL ($12,000): Kane loves scoring goals. He needs to score goals. Tottenham may not be happy if he plays in a meaningless match, but already with six goals
