Lionel Messi, ARG v. NGA ($12,300): Argentina have been abysmal during their first two matches, but they still have an opportunity to qualify for the knockout round with a big win over Nigeria. The Argentina lineup is very much in flux, but it's pretty clear that Messi will be their most important attacker, as always. His price is the highest on the slate by $2,400, but I find it really tough to think of anyone else who has a higher upside, and Argentina's absolute need to win (likely by multiple goals) should have Messi shooting early and often to help his floor. If you really don't want to play Messi but think Argentina score enough, Sergio Aguero ($8,900) or Gonzalo Higuain ($8,100) are certainly GPP possibilities.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, ISL v. CRO ($8,400): Speaking of must-win games, Iceland need a win over Croatia, who have already qualified for the knockout round and will finish first in Group A with a draw or an Argentina win. Iceland aren't usually a high-attacking team, but you need to score goals to win matches, so Sigurdsson should be on the attack pretty heavily. Additionally, Iceland don't usually play for high scores, but they only have a one-goal advantage on Argentina in terms of goal differential, so there is more of a need to win by multiple goals than to squeak
