FORWARDS

Eden Hazard, BEL v. TUN ($10,300): Hazard picked up an assist in Belgium's opening match against Panama, finishing with 19.5 fantasy points in their 3-0 win.

Thomas Muller, GER v. SWE ($8,500): Muller's floor isn't as secure as some other players on his own team, but his forward eligibility could be vital on this slate because there aren't that many forward-eligible players who have good floors, unless you want to double-up on Belgium (and doing so could take you away from Kevin De Bruyne). Muller finished with only 5.75 fantasy points in Germany's surprising loss to Mexico in their first match, though he was more effective in showdown thanks to five chances created.

Similar to Belgium, you can always target their center forward, Timo Werner ($8,200),
