10:00 a.m: Mexico v. Brazil
2:00 p.m: Japan v. Belgium
Neymar, BRZ v. MEX ($12,500):Neymar has the best floor on the slate and it's not close. Even with only one goal and one assist, he's averaging 33 fantasy points per match with 11 chances created and eight shots on goal. Brazil will get their chances against Mexico, similar to the 26 shots Germany had against them in their first group match. Neymar played his best in the most recent match and could be at another level for knockout stages after coming into the tournament with an ankle injury. He's much easier to trust than teammate Gabriel Jesus ($10,000) and is worth the extra money.
Romelu Lukaku, BEL v. JPN ($11,500): Reports have Lukaku healthy after dealing with an ankle injury last week, and he has the best odds to score on the slate. He already has two braces and it can be argued Japan's back line isn't much better than that of Tunisia or Panama. Japan scraped into the round of 16 after stealing a win against 10-man Colombia and then advancing on fair play after losing to Poland. They'll likely sit back a decent amount, which should allow Lukaku to at least see the ball in front of goal. And usually when he shoots, he scores, with four goals from four shots on target.
Hirving Lozano, MEX v. BRZ ($7,500): If you want to save money, Lozano is the most reasonable Mexico
