Don’t be scared to use BIH players in DFS Saturday
It's Saturday, June 21, and there are three more World Cup games of varying interest. It is definitely not the most intriguing day of the group stage schedule, but with Argentina and Germany in action, there are plenty of high-profile Fantasy options on the board.
StatClash.com has plenty of games at varying price levels, as well as Daily Fantasy games, to take your World Cup experience to a new level. I've found that the 50/50 games and head-to-head contests are, by far, my favorite for World Cup play. Hope to see you on the site. It's very user-friendly, and with such in-depth scoring, it is one of the best games out there in the daily space.

Efe Ambrose, D, Nigeria ($17.00 vs Bosnia-Herzegovina): The reason I like Ambrose in this game is due to the fact he had four crosses and three fouls won in the opener against Iran. Those are both quality stats in Daily Fantasy for defenders.
Ángel Di María, M, Argentina ($22.25 vs Iran): Di María was unable to record any goals or assists in the opening game win against Bosnia-Herzegovina, but he was able to post five crosses, an assist, a shot on target and a foul won. The stat line should be even more impressive in what should be a laugher.
Asamoah Gyan, F, Ghana ($17.75 vs Germany): Gyan posted an assist with two shots on target with a cross and two fouls won. He is the most dynamic player for Ghana, and at this price level he is worth a spin.
Ogenyi Onazi, M, Nigeria ($16.00 vs Bosnia-Herzegovina): Like Ambrose, Onazi was active with three crosses, two fouls won and a shot on target in the scoreless draw against Iran. He should duplicate those results against BIH.
Sergio Romero, G, Argentina ($24.50 vs Iran): Argentina is big chalk against the undermanned Iranians, and Romero has the best chance at clean sheet (or shutout).
Edin Visca, F, Bosnia-Herzegovina ($13.00 vs Nigeria): Visca posted two crosses and a pair of shots on target against Argentina, so more is expected against Nigeria. And at this price level, Visca is a strong Daily Fantasy play, plus he'll allow you to spend more valuable salary at other spots.
