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).


StartJeffrey Schlupp, Crystal Palace – The world loves and needs a sleeper with intrigue.  He will be the Paul to PVA’s John this week.  Good skills up the pitch and gets a double.  This week its all about the double, bout the double.  That bass stuff was so three years ago.

SitCesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea – The days for multiple or any Chelsea defenders has passed like Easter.  Though in all fairness, you should have cut bait a month before that and saved yourself the dollar.

Contrarian PlayAndrea Ranocchia, Hull – Go check the bonus points for this guy since Week 23.  Now go look at everyone else on Hull.  Nuff said, nuff said.  He contributes, period.


StartStewart Downing, Middlesbrough – The numbers say he is completely avoidable.  I say that there needs to be an unsung hero for a DGW team.  Stewie is the guy for me.  Everyone and their brother is bringing in in Ben Gibson.  Look more up the pitch and hope someone, anyone gets on the end of a cross

SitPaul Pogba, Man United – If this game was about name recognition and cool hair cuts he would be on everyone’s team.  the transfer in numbers are staggering considering the last thing he did for FPL acclaim Obama was still president.

Punt PlayAndros Townsend, Crystal Palace – Zaha is getting all the love, but with 27 points over the last two weeks Andros may be the under-owned option this week.  screw swimming with the Zaha fish, go crazy walk on land like that weird mud fish.


StartMarcus Rashford, Man United – He reminds me of what Okazaki did for Leicester last year.  Run his butt off for 70 minutes and then get subbed.  Well that is 140 minutes this week and then double subbed.  The anti-Ibra move before you wildcard to catch up in your mini league move.

Sit Manolo Gabbiadiani, Southampton – Huh?  The only Italian you should be rostering is a pair of sweet loafers when you set your line-up sans this dude.  Schedule upcoming is like swimming tied to a buoy.  Be smarter.

Lucky StrikeJordan Ayew, Swansea – I bet anyone a dollar that Ayew scores this week.  I will give fifty cents if its the other one.  Make sense?  Good wheres my buck fool!

    Hola esmoki,

    I seem to have gotten myself into a predicament, your suggestion on who to take a hit for would be recommended.

    I’m still saving the WC for GW 36, if not sooner in GW 35.

    GK: Lloris; bench Jaku
    DEF: PVA, Valencia, Holgate; bench Mawson/Nyom
    MF: Alli, Zaha, King, Herrera (brought in earlier this week for Sig); bench Milijovecic (brought in last week cuz I liked the penalties and was .1 short of going to Townsend)
    FWD: Kane, Vardy, Ibra

    In light of Ibra’s injury, do I take a -4 to transfer out Mili and bring in Townsend or Downing, starting 5MF and benching Ibra? Or do I transfer out Ibra for Rashford, and start Alli/Zaha/King/Herrera? Or do both for -8…lol.

    I had been contemplating a -4 to go Nyom to Gibson and have all DGW Defenders, but I think Holgate in the back has more than a good enough shot at getting a CS. I’m not betting on Palace to get any CS either, but I like PVA’s odds to bury at least one in two tries.

    Your answer before the price change later today would be awesome!

    Also, my RCL team is outpacing the league in power!!

      @Maxi: Yes bring in Townsend huge differential this week, Gibson is going to be owned by the universe. I am selling Everton defenders right now, Palace is def not a CS option this week. I saw man you are doing fantastic, congrats.

        @Smokey: So bring in Townsend, bench Ibra….captain Zaha? Captain Townsend? Captain Kane? Who ya thinkin?

        While it feels wasteful to have 11.4million on the bench for this week, I’m pretty confident I’ll flip Ibra to Aguero for City’s GW 35 matchup, and then afterward I can WC and turn that money into other players for my subsequent bench boost in GW37.

        Any reason to WC in 35 or does 36 still make the most sense?

        Gracias señor!

          @Maxi: either 35 or 36, depending how much your roster needs conditioning after this week.
