FORWARDS

Lionel Messi, BAR at MU ($10,000): Messi is the most expensive player on the slate, and he is criminally underpriced. Barcelona are favored away to Manchester United, and Messi comes in with 13 goals on 47 shots (25 on goal), four assists on 17 chances created and 17 fouls drawn in his last eight games. His shot floor alone is unmatched, and there's no doubt that he'll be the highest-owned player in cash games and GPPs. Because of that, fading him makes sense in tournaments, at least from a leverage standpoint, but there may be no scarier fade. Paying up for Cristiano Ronaldo ($9,500) is always a possibility in the Champions League, but he's missed a number of games recently with a thigh injury and Juventus are playing away (i.e. the second leg is at home), so there may not be a huge need to push him.

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. POR ($8,400): Filling the second forward spot won't be that easy, especially if you consider the Tottenham v. Manchester City match one worth targeting, with any of the City options plus Harry Kane ($8,300) viable. However, Liverpool make much more sense because they are the biggest favorite on the slate.
