We’re once again giving you our loves and hates for each week in a segment called “Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em”. You should know the drill, but if you don’t, we pick one option from each position. Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply… basic. It is more based on my feelings and gut approach for the week’S upcoming and changes from week-to-week. I look at match-ups and form to formulate my craziness. It’s like musical chairs, without all the screaming kids and regretful feeling of loss. So sit back, relax, and have a look at who we would start and sit based on match-ups and value. It’s Fantasy Premier League Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Week 14 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).
Start – Erik Pieters, Stoke – If you want an investment into a defense this week it starts with this Potter. The possible return of Geoff Cameron will make a ton of difference. I know GC isn’t a sassy name but he is another defender on the pitch.
Sit – John Stones, Man City – Please do not be an idiot here. If you are this far in the season then do what we do at a lake and skip Stones
Contrarian Play – Alfie Mawson, Swansea – Love me some Michael Caine movie name guys. I also like the Swans match-up this week as Burnley is just awful on the road. Has been on an every other game doing work type thing, and he did poop last week.
Start – Leroy Sane, Man City – The third sexiest option at play through the Man City mid-drift. Rotation risks are involved with everyone on City unfortunately. Averaging 5 pts per game over his last 4, so returns could be better then minimum at a differential in ownership at less then 2% and rising
Sit – Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Man United – The cushy Bournemouth fixture looks nice, as does the double game week in 5 a few weeks, but for now his salary is like a mole that I can not stop staring at. Yuck.
Punt Play – Kamil Grosicki, Hull – Is basically playing in an offset striker role but at the behest of a midfielder position. DFS players this is a sneak good play this week. Got a helper last week and should be involved a ton in the Hull build-up
Start – Peter Crouch, Stoke – Listen while the wold faints and fawns of getting Kun Aguero into their roster for the double, his opposite also gets a double, and an equally intriguing one. Boro is a better on paper defence then what they appear, and we know City’s propensity to ship goals. If he gets one goal in two games at his price tag he is worth it.
Sit – Jamie Vardy, Leicester – I certainly remember Monday better then the previous week, and most transfer eyes do to. Heck I think on last ear and remember how awesome he was. My basic point is don’t fall for the new expiation date on spoiled milk.
Lucky Strike – Troy Deeney, Watford – I just wanted to point out that a ton of strikers are owned more then him currently, names like Vardy, Negredo and Salomon Rondon who all combined have 3 goals in their last 9 games. That’s 27 matches in theory, Deeney has 4 in his last 5 and that is going to continue this week.
