FORWARDS

Cristiano Ronaldo, JUV at OL ($10,200): Juventus are favored away to Lyon, and no player has higher anytime goal scorer odds than Ronaldo, who comes in with 11 goals on 42 shots (19 on target) in his last seven games. He is $1,400 more than the next highest-priced active forward, but that isn't likely to suppress his ownership in cash games or GPPs, especially since there aren't a plethora of guys we need to pay up for, and there are some decent values to make it easy to fit him in.

Paulo Dybala, JUV at OL ($7,700): Dybala has been taking a majority of Juventus' set pieces recently, and given that they are favored (the biggest on the two-game slate), he'll surely be popular in all formats. The correlation with Ronaldo is certainly a plus, but I would argue they each make sense on their own merits, as one is the most lethal goal scorer in the world and the other will be put in good dead-ball situations in a game they should win. Pairing the two means you're likely not playing any of the Manchester City forwards, who are somewhat cheaper and also favored, though that match is expected to be high scoring, so paying down a little bit for someone like Karim Benzema ($7,900) makes sense
