Edinson Cavani, F, Uruguay ($19.25 vs England): Cavani is expected to team with F Luis Suárez ($23.25), as La Celeste look to bounce back from their stunning 3-1 setback to Costa Rica in the opening match. Cavani is the most fit of any Uruguayan striker, as Suárez (knee) is returning from a knee injury, and it's uncertain how effective he will be. Cavani posted a goal with two shots and a corner vs. CRC.
Gervinho, M, Cote d'Ivoire ($16.75 vs Colombia): Gervinho opened with a strong game against the Samurai Blue, posting a goal and a pair of crosses while winning three fouls. His marker was the game-winner, leading to a whopping 13.5 Fantasy points. He will be hard-pressed to duplicate that type of production, but he will still be very involved.
Keisuke Honda, M, Japan ($18.25 vs Greece): Honda kicked off his World Cup with a tremendous goal against Cote d'Ivoire, and he is clearly the top Fantasy option on his club. He was Man of the Match twice in four games in 2010, and he is making an impact again in Brazil.
Eiji Kawashima, G, Japan ($22.50 vs Greece): Kawashima allowed a pair of goals in the opening match loss against Cote d'Ivoire, but he should be a lot better against a Greek side that isn't very gifted offensively. In fact, of the six keepers on the board, Kawashima has the best shot at a clean sheet.
James Rodríguez, M, Colombia ($22.50 vs Cote d'Ivoire): Rodríguez was all over the place, posting a goal, three shots on target, three crosses, four corner kicks, four fouls won and one foul committed. Whether or not he scores, he should be active at the offense end again, making him an expensive, yet solid Fantasy play.
Yaya Touré, M, Cote d'Ivoire ($20.25 vs Colombia): Touré was able to start in the first match and he looked good in the 2-1 win over Japan. He managed one cross and he won a pair of fouls, and he should be even more engaged against the Colombian attack.
Juan Zúñiga, D, Colombia ($17.00 vs Cote d'Ivoire): Zúñiga was busy in the first match against Greece, winning three fouls and recording a clean sheet in the big win. He is a solid building block on defense.
Didier Drogba, F, Cote d'Ivoire (vs Colombia): Drogba (groin) came on as a substitute in the 2-1 win against Japan in the opening match for Les Éléphants, and he is likely to come off the bench again. As such, he is a poor Fantasy play.
Diego Lugano, D, Uruguay (vs England): Lugano (knee) has been dealing with a left knee injury, and he has been ruled OUT vs England.
