So, as we do every match day, we’re giving you our loves and hates for this week in a segment called Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em.  You should know the drill but if you don’t, we each pick one option from each position, and then, for a bonus, we show you our genius line-ups for the week.  Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply… basic.  The best part is, you get two opinions for the price of one.  We do this as a tandem, it’s the Smokey and Ralph show.  It’s like musical chairs, without all the screaming kids and regretful feeling of loss. So, Week 15 has a slew of intriguing games and some lopsided affairs as well. Fear not though, as there are no lopsided matches in Fantasy EPL. Well, there is if you don’t have the foggiest idea of what you are doing, or just don’t listen to us. So have a look at who we would start and sit based on match-ups and value.

Welcome back to our little Saturday morning EPL shindig, otherwise known as the Matchday Previews. We have an unbelievable slate of games today, with six out of the top ten in action. The two most exciting fixtures look to be in the early and the late games, sandwiching five mediocre, mid-day contests. The two aforementioned contests I’m most interested in as an FPL manager are, Newcastle .vs Chelsea, and Manchester City .vs Everton. They both feature teams with at least a few ownable players in each squad, and several of the superstars of the game. They both have the potential to be actual entertaining matches.

No matter what anybody tells you, winning in weekly fantasy soccer, is all about buying the right third striker as your flex, and nailing it. Sure you could use an attacking fullback or a good midfielder, but no one offers the sort of home run potential you get with a third striker. For example, in the Wednesday contests on DraftKings everybody and I mean absolutely everybody owned Sergio Agüero and Didier Drogba. Agüero was owned by 60% of managers, Drogba was owned by 40%, and after big days from each, one or some combination of the two were essential to any winning squad.

After 3 Matchweeks in the course of nine days we’ve truncated the rankings into these short easy to read versions. I like using the term “easy to read” because it takes a positive spin on “we’re too lazy to write full rankings so you’re getting these sucka!” I mean seriously do you care what we think, in depth, about the 11th ranked keeper for the week? Which is why going forward most of my content will consist of fart jokes and bad puns…Terrible puns. Only one hurdle on that one, I’m not sure what the Exec’s out on the West Coast would think so I’ll stick to Soccer/Football/Futbol/AHHHHHHH. The last one is what my Wife’s Uncle says when anyone talks about soccer/football/futbol/ahhhhhhh. Don’t worry we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming next week with the full rankings. So until then, I bid you adieu.

If you haven’t noticed, I completely have retired the transfer day theory.  This week’s accelerated schedule has landed your regularly scheduled program in a caffeine induced comma.  It’s doctor has recommended continuous karaoke sessions, and a wrist band that entitles it to unlimited rides at the local carnival.  So this week’s transfers come with alot of questions, because if you are reading this there are still games today.  Games to drink to, games to stagger home from.  So read responsibly is basically what I am saying.  Friends don’t let friends transfer drunk, and yes smart guy buzzed transferring still counts.  Enjoy the fixtures today and we will see you tomorrow as the shortened week continues and we roll toward the weekend fixtures of Week 15.

Short week, and the rankings need to be rushed.  So instead of two long drawn out days of you sitting on your computer hitting refresh, you get them all in one gigantic list, plus some word of genius for each group.  Free of charge, naturally.  So get your transfers in, because the games start in 24 hours.  Go do it now!  Wait, you might as well finish reading this and then compare and contrast like the vision test you take at the optometrist.  So with the short week, we give you an all in one look at this week’s rankings.  Stay tuned because this roller coaster goes around again in three days.

Feeling a little rushed? Well, the accelerated schedule this week give us three games in eight days for all clubs.  That makes me happy, not only does it turns soccer into basketball or hockey, but even better, it’s the beautiful game and we should as much as possible.  Just be heady that the short week will cause all type of physio nightmares for your projected line-ups, and we all know how close to the vest they keep these line-ups.  So make sure you have viable bench options with zero injury concerns as filler for your starters, cause ya never can have enough playable talent.  This week I am fully vested in taking advantage of plays against Hull and Leicester as both teams are scraping to get by and look nothing short of teams to get relegated right now. Enjoy the quick turn around and I will see you all tomorrow with Week 14 rankings.
