Wednesdays from now on are the day when we let nothing hide between friends. It is fairly simple: I will show you my team for the next three Wednesday’s leading up to the start of the season. I do expect that if you read this and that, you’ll do the exact same thing, because two heads are better than one, and 10 is even better. Get it? Cool. So this is draft number six on the year for me so far, the others were more fiddling out of boredom, but now we are starting to see news out and about pertaining to certain teams formations, transfers, and injury updates. So enjoy this early look at Smokey’s team and critique away, because I prolly deserve to be slandered for my thoughts and team selection. Cheers!
Keepers: Nothing has really changed, I have spent the maximum that I am willing to pay at the position to start the year. Only an injury or replacement of one of them from the starting role will make me change, and that won’t happen until I utilize my first wildcard.
Defense: I am going to start the year with a 4-man back line. I have cover for the top three defense units schedule wise in United, Spurs, and So’ton. I mix in with the belief that Ake, who I believe will be the most owned Cherries defender eventually. The four buck chuck is full affect with a hope and prayer call with Burnley’s Long. I may regret or eventually go and get a Chelsea defender eventually and Marcos Alonso is looming like a tasty buy low guy because of ownership at 14% and the eighth most owned defender right now.
Midfield: Out with the Sanchez, in with the KDB. I am convinced that City are going to be a juggernaut for fantasy. KDB makes that offense hit fifth gear. Alli has and still is my first insertion into a draft so far, love him this year. The Nemanja Matic signing means that Pogba can move up the pitch a little, which increases his value in the official game. I am ok with the two throw away middies because they will actual be playing, and not be a net zero like some other 4.5 options.
Forwards: I have shifted my initial love for Morata to begin the year, fitness is everything and he doesn’t have it right now. The Bobby Digital love fest for me is starting to burn a little brighter. I have United, Liverpool, and a could be surprising Palace team covered up top and I am happy… for right now.
