We‚Äôre once again giving you our loves and hates for each week in a segment called ‚ÄúStart ‚ÄėEm and Sit ‚ÄėEm‚ÄĚ.¬† You should know the drill, but if you don‚Äôt, we pick one option from each position. ¬†Pretty cut and dry, and quite simply‚Ä¶ basic. ¬†It is more based on my feelings and gut approach for the week‚Äôs upcoming and changes from week-to-week. ¬†I look at match-ups and form to formulate my craziness. ¬†It‚Äôs 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‚Äôs¬†Fantasy Premier League Start ‚ÄėEm, Sit ‚ÄėEm, Week 16 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn‚Äôt.)
Start – Harry Maguire, Leicester – I am just wild about Harry, and Harry has no idea that I live in his kitchen cupboard.¬† Got a clean last week with some BPS love.¬† Has three decent fixtures upcoming before his sell date against United.¬† Do yourself a favor get a Fox on defense.
Sit – Kieran Trippier, Spurs – Stoke is going to score and ruin your COYS day.¬† Toby is the glue that holds the clean sheet ship together…much like Phil Jones with United.
Contrarian Play – Christian Kabasele, Watford – I think I wrote about him three times this week.¬† Owned in 1% of leagues and may be the best athlete on defense for the Hornets.¬† Schedule is cozy that you can invest long term.¬† So go to Jared.¬† Get the ring.¬† Propose to a Watford lad.
Start –Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool – File this under the ‘no duh’ category.¬† Still outside the top 20 most owned midfielders as we sit right now.¬† Went of midweek, went off last week.¬† Guy is streaky like windows wiped with vomit.
Sit – Christian Eriksen, Spurs – Too many factors for my hatred.¬† Price, returns and that I don’t trust that he brings it every week offensively.¬† Spurs will get some goals as Stoke is piss poor on the road in defense, but I think it goes to Son,Lamela, Alli and Sir Harry.
Punt Play – Riyad Mahrez, Leicester – Not a punt by name but by ownership he qualifies.¬† Leicester is looking for a break out goal fest game and that won’t come unless he is involved.¬† I like him for one and one this week.¬† Now I just need a petition to lower his price by 1m.
Start –Salomon Rondon, West Brom – Re-released into the offensive fray after Pulis was shown the gate.¬† Swansea are abysmal on defense anywhere, home is actually worse.¬† Expect the big shouldered Venezuelan to take you down to the tall grass and let him do his stuff.¬† FPL and Fleetwood mac go together who knew!
Sit – Callum Wilson, Bournemouth – Is there a bigger fraud in FPL right now as everyone and their sister brought him following the triple.¬† Five total shots in last 200 plus minutes.¬† Blah served cold with a side of blah.
Lucky Strike – Christian Benteke, Crystal Palace – Remember way back when in week one this guy was owned in over 10% of leagues. he is back, well sort of in a Palacey type way.¬† had 4 shots last week and rounding into game shape again.¬† Bournemouth is not the defensive stalwart that we think they are based on some of their ownership numbers.
