FanDuel Fantasy Soccer: Wednesday UCL Cheat Sheet

FORWARDS/MIDFIELDERS

Cristiano Ronaldo, JUV at LYON ($21): Wednesday's slate isn't as simple as saying Lionel Messi or Robert Lewandowski. There are a number of routes to take, and my first choice is the player with the best odds to score. The only word to use for Ronaldo is consistent. He's scored in 12 straight matches (11 in Serie A, one UCL), totaling 17 goals in all. The issue is that he isn't creating much for teammates, which limits his floor, especially when he doesn't get more than one or two shots on goal. Either way, Lyon have struggled against top competition, recently allowing four goals to Paris Saint-Germain, as well as at least one goal in each of their three home matches in the UCL group stage. Sergio Aguero ($22) is kind of in the same mold in that he relies on goals, and I'd rather take the player with better odds to score.  

Karim Benzema, MAD v. MCI ($20): Benzema is more of a GPP play and a bet I'm willing to make. I don't think Real Madrid should be underdogs in this spot, and while Benzema hasn't been as good as earlier in the season, the upside is there. Questions also remain about Man City's back line, especially if Aymeric Laporte isn't healthy enough to go.
