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 32 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)
Start – James Tarkowski, Burnley – The bBaggies do score, just not very often. Big confidence booster when he got his first cap for country this past international break. Good on ya Jimmy. Now go get us a cleanie.
Sit – Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea – No harry the Kane, no problem. Or is there? I still think Spurs scores by some hook or crook. Son and the lads should be able to torment the Blues defense enough to coax a one on the board instead of a big oblong circle.
Contrarian Play: Ben Chilwell, Leicester – After the more owned Maguire the ownability of the Leicester defense currently is absent. Brighton are slightly better than their normal worse in attack at home, but Leicester are set up for some fantasy goodies for weeks to come.
Start – Henrikh Mkihitaryan, Arsenal – the gunners seem to be clicking a little bit and that is not just from EPL action that includes the Europa’s. Stoke is abysmal at keeping fantasy assets out of the fantasy asset column. Stupid Potters.
Sit – Dele Alli, Spurs – With the absence of Kane the beneficiary could be any other option but Dele. has there been a bigger disappointment this year fantasy wise than what we have seen from dele this year?
Punt Play – Kenedy, Newcastle – Has a lot going for him; price, swagger fixtures and FPl players confidence right now. Based on transfer in numbers people are ignoring the non-double for now.
Start – Jamie Vardy, Leicester – If he was cold I would say get him a blanket and don’t go near him until you give him some soup, but he isn’t. Six goals in last ten fixtures and the Foxes have a cooshy schedule the rest of the way.
Sit – Cenk Tosun, Everton – Listen I get that he has 4 in three games. Cenk meet City. City meet Cenk. BTW Cenk sorta rhymes with blank. The third highest transferred in forward is not gonna do poop. And that is me quoting me.
Lucky Strike – Chris Wood, Burnley – In a per minute comparison to his counterpart Ashley barnes he wins one everything from non-girl name to points per minute, shots in the box..etc. Burnley has the Baggies, Watford and than a double. For just over 6 bucks you could do worse of a gambel for this week through 34.
