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 34 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t).Please, blog, may I have some more?
The double game week is here, and while some of the teams on the slate have pretty blah fixtures… (Cough, Crystal Palace, cough.) The others have optimal schedules to load up your teams for the DGW. Getting there doesn’t really require you to wild card per se, and I personally wouldn’t. The wildcard is for Week 35 and beyond when multiple options present themselves with better fixtures. That is neither here nor there, because tons have already wild carded and taken that off the table so let’s just concentrate on the here and now. I said Boro haul because while they are basically a recycling bin for fantasy relevance, they do hold some value this week because of the teams that they play. With games against Bournemouth and then home to Sunderland they face two teams that don’t have the best propensity for consistency. Having at least one Middlesbrough defender this week and possible more could be a great idea if you can get there with minimal point deductions. We all know the three teams that double, there is no secret solution to this. It is a guessing game for the week. Which is stretched out five days. So grab some DGW fellas and then have a gander below to see what else is going down in the world of transfers. Cheers!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The transfer market is set by what a player just did. Lukaku was the “sexy pick with questions add” last week. He came through with a four sack of goodies. Now add in the second coming of Jesus with his brace and benching of Kun again. Is he Pep’s dude? It’s starting to look like it isn’t. Two straight starts and results to show for it. The only thing is the price and the possibility of another blank in Week 28. Do you maximize the two games for sure this week and 27 and forego worrying about him as a rotational striker with a hefty price tag? I would like to say yes, but 9.2 million on the bench when three other teams, all fantasy stalwart teams for fantasy are on break at the same time, is tough. I asks the question, since Arsenal is blanking in Week 26, do you keep Alexis and bench him given the same set of circumstances? Questions and second guessing is what this fantasy game is all about. It is easier to say sure is my friend and move on, but then they play the game you get zero results and throw fruit at me. Nonetheless, I try and parlay what I say into helping rosters even at the behest of my own team. Still, I have fun talking footie, especially transfers. Speaking of transfers, with 13 weeks to go and several blanks and doubles on the way, here are some looks down the road for production in an otherwise empty room.
