UCL Champions League DFS Picks – 2016 Week 6 Tuesday

The Champions league is once again taking the spotlight this week. This is the final week from the group stage and in turn is the hardest to predict and give solid DFS plays because a lot of top teams will bench the starters and play guys who do not get a lot of playing time. The round of 16 draw is Dec. 12 with the matches starting with leg 1 in Feb so this is the last Champions league week for a few months so lets enjoy and see if we can make some money this week. The most important thing this week is CHECK LINEUPS when they get released!

PSV-RostovOne of the few games that matter is this game where PSV needs a win to gain a top 3 finish and continue the European competition play in the Europa league. Rostov coming off a huge upset of Bayern 3-2.

Be sure to double check the lineups when they come out before game time because a lot of things can happen in practice or over competitions that could keep players out in the next few days. ALWAYS check the lineups before submitting your DFS teams.
