Consider your transfers with these McDonald’s FIFA World Cup Fantasy tips for forwards in the Round of 16 in Russia 2018’s official fantasy football.
You get to make unlimited transfers this round, so with teams going out this could be the optimum moment to play your Bench Boost.
To get you to 15 likely starters will require some bargains along the way, as they free up funds for the big names elsewhere.
With this in mind, recommended picks include players from Belgium, Spain, Brazil and Russia.
Romelu Lukaku, BEL – 10.1m
By no means cheap, but bear in mind he’s 1m cheaper than Harry Kane and looks to have much the better fixture in Japan as opposed to Colombia.
The similarly priced Edan Hazard and 9m Dries Mertens look like decent options too.
Diego Costa, ESP – 9.1m
Failed to score against Morocco after managing three goals from the opening two games, but Spain’s next opponents Russia looked vulnerable in losing 0-3 to Uruguay.
Gabriel Jesus, BRA – 9m
He may be yet to score but he’s started all three games for Brazil and played 90 minutes in the most recent two, so he’s clearly important to them.
If Brazil are to go far in the tournament then you imagine Jesus will score at some point, so why not a Mexico side that just lost 0-3 to Sweden?
Artem Dzyuba, RUS – 8.1m
Didn’t get any joy against Uruguay last time out, but his next opponents Spain have looked shaky defensively so Russia’s big target man could trouble them.
Good luck and happy selecting!
