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 17 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn‚Äôt.)
Start – Joe Gomez, Liverpool – Rotation be damned in Klopp’s world.¬† Gomez needs to play every week.¬† Giving the Pudlians a second viable fantasy defender besides Moreno….Wait did I just give Moreno a lauded approval.¬† I am sick and going to the jacks.
Sit – Sead Kolasinac, Arsenal – If the hammers come back and wave their magic wand again and lull the Gunners to sleep like last week then it will be interesting.¬† CS be damned, no Mustafi no clean.¬† Much like United with Jones.¬† Spurs with Toby.¬† Lucky charms are the clean sheet magnet
Contrarian Play – Phil Jones, Man United – The CS good luck charm seems to be back in contention for selection for midweek after just missing out against City.¬† United are a complete CS crap shoot minus him.¬† Funny when you look at a picture of Phil you would never think stability.
Start – Heung-Min Son, Spurs – Arguably the best Spurs middie over the last 10 games.¬† Actually the only argument you should have there is with yourself because it is complete truth.
Sit – Dele Alli, Spurs – On the opposite side of the spectrum do Spurs fans even remember when he scored an EPL goal. It was in October and I am not even being cute funny or joking.¬† Actually that describes me to a T so yes I am being all of those things.
Punt Play – Jesse Lindgard, Man United –¬† Jesse’s on a midfield far away, as long as Pogba doesn’t come over.¬† So many thing that I wanna say, you know I like my United midfielders a little bit older.¬† Thanks ‘The Outfield-Your Love‘ for that.¬† United is going to come out pissed in this game, whether that translates offensive is a different story.¬† Sell down on players this week if possible, the big dogs are poop.`
Start – Charlie Austin , Southampton – For anyone that speaks Italian, how do you say where is Gabbiadini?¬† The answer is Who-cares-a.¬† Austin looks all fresh with the step and the big swinging dick around the Saints front line at the moment.¬† For 6 bucks he and chips with some nice malt vinegar sound bout right.
Sit – Romelu Lukaku, Man United – If you own this bloke how are you still owning this bloke. Trick question…you should not be owning this bloke.¬† One goal in last 9 and his ownership is still in the 30% range.¬† that alone makes me sick and confused.
Lucky Strike – Steve Mounie, Huddersfield – The heading frenchman is back and doubled again for the second time this year.¬† Too bad he has Chelsea this week.¬† The punt is in play here as he is a good third option with 5-6 decent match-up in the Terriers favor upcoming.¬† Sort of a buy now, thank me later thing.
