Emil Forsberg, SWE v. UKR ($8,900): I never envisioned starting an article with an $8,900 Emil Forsberg, but that's what we get Tuesday. He has a split role on sets and has been Sweden's best goal-scorer through the group stage. He's hit the back of the net on his last three shots on target, and more importantly, his floor has been serviceable. His floor was near 10 fantasy points against Poland and near seven against Slovakia. If you throw out the Spain match, spending $8,900 on Forsberg may actually make sense. He doesn't have the best odds to score for Sweden, but there's a chance he starts as a forward if Dejan Kulusevski moves into the starting XI and plays on the wing. Alexander Isak ($6,400) has the best odds to score for Sweden, but he has two shots on goal in three matches and isn't as likely to go a full 90. Forsberg is also a play against Ukraine, who may have the worst back line of the Round of 16 teams. They gave up 33 combined shots to Netherlands and Austria, and even allowed North Macedonia to get five looks on net with 1.30 expected goals. This feels like a lot of money to spend on Forsberg, but everything points to him hitting a floor near 10 points,
