MATCHES (EST)

FORWARDS

Cristiano Ronaldo, JUV at LYN (€28): Ronaldo is in the midst of a torrid goal-scoring spree, as he's found the back in the net in 12 consecutive outings. He'll look to carry over his maniacal hunger for scoring goals to Wednesday's Round of 16 first leg at Lyon, where Juventus will be looking to go home with an away goal or two in hand.

Sergio Aguero, MCI at RMA (€27): Aguero continues to be Manchester City's most lethal goal-scoring weapon, bagging a brace and topping 28 points in his last Champions League appearance. Look for him to see multiple chances at the Bernabeu, with Manchester City looking to pull off a decisive result on the road in the first leg.

Moussa Dembele, LYN v. JUV (€10): Through six Champions League group games, Dembele is averaging less than a half-point per game, and his bare minimum salary reflects that. Despite his undesirable stats over that span, he's a worthy GPP option on a two-game slate, especially considering the fact that he's scored a goal in each of his last two Ligue 1 starts.

MIDFIELDERS

Toni Kroos, RMA v. MCI (€28): Kroos averaged 13 fantasy points per game during the group stage, and that only includes one goal and one assist in five starts. He has a solid floor thanks to his ability to rack up points across multiple categories, and with a spot in the UCL quarter-finals up for grabs, we can expect him to be at his best. 

Kevin De Bruyne, MCI at RMA (€26): De Bruyne supplies a steady stream of points through his finicky passing all over the field. He takes multiple shots, sends in multiple crosses and creates multiple chances every single game, and Wednesday's clash with Real Madrid should be no different.

Riyad Mahrez, MCI at RMA (€24): Mahrez can riddle defenses with his mazy runs and fancy footwork. He's created 10 chances in his last three games, making a case to click the Select Player button in a high-profile match with Real Madrid.

DEFENDERS

Sergio Ramos, RMA v. MCI (€21): Even at center-back, Ramos is a goal-scoring threat given his role on spot kicks for Real Madrid. Penalty-taking center-backs are mostly obsolete these days, but on a two-game slate, paying up for that upside could easily be the difference in GPPs. 

Marcelo, RMA v. MCI (€19): The 31-year-old can't quite fly like he used to, but he still gets involved going forward regularly. He'll look to tack on his fourth assist of the Champions League campaign in what should be an exciting bout with Manchester City.

Alex Sandro, JUV @ LYN (€19): Sandro is the adhesive that connects the left channel of the Juventus setup, sending in crosses and creating a flurry of chances game-in and game-out. Expect the Brazilian left-back to continue to make himself a nuisance out on the flank.

GOALKEEPER

Anthony Lopes, LYN v. JUV (€15): Lopes had little to do in keeping a clean sheet in his last Ligue 1 match, but he'll surely be tested in what should be a festive Round of 16 matchup with Juventus. On a two-game slate where anything is possible, spending down at the position is a viable strategy.
