Kylian Mbappe, FRA v. PER ($9,500): Mbappe is a potential pivot off Griezmann, as he comes at a $2,000 discount. He reached just 12 fantasy points in round one due to his inability to score a goal, which displays his goal-dependent style of production. Griezmann has the second-highest odds to score, while Mbappe is fifth on the board, making him more of a GPP play.
Yussuf Poulsen, DEN v. AUS ($8,000): Poulsen is the cheapest player at the forward position that I will consider Thursday. His goal and 26 fantasy points in the first round make him an exciting play heading, and his dynamic style allows him to produce in multiple ways for Denmark.
