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 3 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).
Start – Craig Dawson, West Brom – The guy from where the creek is with Pacey and the gang brings the baggies full of clean sheetedness. The potters are going to be put in the chiller. I don’t care how much Jese love is being spewed all over the place.
Sit – Charlie Daniels, Bournemouth – They play City, who are probably laughing at the group selection of the Champions league and will come out and put 3-4 in before us East coasters will be awake or sober. The Cherries for all there defense are offensive.
Contrarian Play – Miguel Britos, Watford – No Holebas for the Hornets defense to yellow up… so I turn to Miguel Burritos. Had a goal last week, all I want is a clean sheet and I will keep the peace. Come on Marco Silva do some of that last season Hull magic!
Start – Michail Antonio, West Ham – Healthy check, form… well he had an assist last week, half check, schedule in his favor, check, longest use of commas to prove a point, check. West Ham fixtures, his capability and that he is cheaper then all the 8.0 love fest going on is why I am jumping on the Hammers middie.
Sit – Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal – You feel that itch of temptation. God ignore it get some bug spray a fresh beer and do not bring his 11.9 booty into the foray yet.
Punt Play – Gylfi Sigurdsson, Everton – Gylfi? A sleeper? Ownership says so. Results are in the pudding and the perennial top fantasy option. When in his career has he had this much talent around him? Never except if you count that youth league in Iceland.
Start – Harry Kane, Spurs – Unleash the Kraken!!
Sit – Christian Benteke, Crystal Palace – At what point do we start saying that he is the poor man’s version of Steve Mounie. regardless that they play Swans this week he should not be owned any wheres near what he is. garbage is on Monday and Thursdays…n ot Saturdays.
Lucky Strike – Tammy Abraham, Swansea – Palace like to give up shots on target like its Squid Roe in Cabo. Scoring midweek, named to the English Under 21 team and palace its like a triumvirate of sexiness.
