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 30 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).

 

Defense:

StartRyan Bertrand, Southampton – The Saints have been a tough team to predict for fantasy all season and now that VVD is no longer an idea this season, someone has to jump out.  Ryan is raising his hand with the 4 assists in his last 5.

SitHector Bellerin, Arsenal – The gunners can’t even get their skipper to agree on a contract, lets forget that they haven’t kept a clean sheet but once in their last 8 games.  Not good for a player owned all over the place and his ownership is in the 13% range.  For the DGW that they will have sure, but not against City.

Contrarian Play –Ben Davies, Spurs – Cheap entry points make the girls swoon.  Rose is not coming back anytime soon.

Midfielders:

StartRiyad Mahrez, Leicester – If only his price was somewhere near what anyone felt comfy spending.  The foxes are going to roll the next few, and anyone chasing points may want to dip into the furry mammal pool.

SitPhilippe Coutinho, Liverpool –  I honestly am using him as the scapegoat here for the entire Liverpool midfield.  I have read that he has success after coming off international break… fiddle-faddle and happen-stance.  Prove me wrong fool.

Punt PlayDusan Tadic, Southampton – Have we ever solved the Dusan constant playing time conundrum?  Can he just play everyday and turn it into a set it, and forget it type thing?  Only owned in 1.9% of leagues, that is way too low.

Forwards:

StartAbel Hernandez, Hull – Remember a few weeks ago when I called Oumar Niasse doing something.  Well now it is Abel, my bell’s turn.  West Ham is hurting on defense and Hull is a different animal at home.  Get it?  They are the Tigers.

SitAlvaro Negredo, Middlesbrough – He is owned more then Troy Deeney FFS.  That is all that should be stated.  Boro is last in every offensive category, including being offensive to fantasy stats.

Lucky StrikeShane Long, Southampton – With no Manolo this week, it should be the Long show starring the late Chuck Berris.  I mean if he can calm a man with a broken leg down by telling him to breathe like a pregnant woman he can surely score for your fantasy team.  Bournemouth likes to give up a few, I favor the Irishman here.

    That rhyme scheme tho….

    “Cheap entry points make the girls swoon. Rose is not coming back anytime soon.”

    So about that 12-team draft last night…my buddy is gonna “co-manage” the team with me since apparently running a fantasy baseball team solo is a little too overwhelming for him. I did the first three rounds from my phone and then he signed in to take over with my suggestions.

    We got Cueto in the 4th, and then he got booted between picks (we were 2nd, so only the turn between our next pick) and he had Melancon in our queue (he’s a big Giants fan), and we end up getting him. Next picks went Lester, Yelich, Segura, Stras, Pollock, Jansen, Santana, Chapman, McCutch, Polanco, and we only ended the drafting 3RP: Melancon, Johnson and Addison Reed I hope Familia gets into more hyjinx and you get no saves from him all season.

    Kind of a bummer to have that happen in the 5th round, but I’m not too mad about the team. I’m gonna have to become an almighty save vulture or I’m gonna beg and plead that you trade me a closer this season haha.

    Looking forward to it! I love this time of the year with the end of FPL and the beginning of FBaseball, so much going on.

    Toodles,
    Maxi
