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 33 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)
Start – Ben Chilwell, Leicester – Assist and a clean last week against a team that I thought had a better chance to score than the team he faces this week. Tons of differentials on the Fox defense as no one os owned above 4% after Harry Maguire.
Sit – Nicolas Otamendi, Man City – Ran his butt off midweek and the whole “it only takes one goal” to ruin a CS party plays in here. For the same price you can go get a Spurs defender and get some comfy night sleep in clean sheet REM.
Contrarian Play – Lewis Dunk, Brighton – Legitimately anyone on the Gulls defense will do this week. Huddersfield has more blank goal weeks than weeks with goals and they are worse on the road if that is possible. Buy for now and play for next as they double, and for the cheeky coffee fan they pull a Tim Horton double double with ugly double fixtures in game week 37.
Start – Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal – I like dudes on hot streaks. Two goals in the Europa is a big confidence boost to anyone. Goals in separate competitions and friendlies carry over. Just ask Marko. Soton is about as overcooked as overcooked can be.
Sit – Mo Salah, Liverpool – If you own him you have a tough decision. Will he miss more than one week? Liverpool don’t double the rest of the way, but just think about losing all that value from when you bought in to now.
Punt Play – Aaron Lennon, Burnley – With Gudmundsson set for an injury spell still, Lennon has had helpers in back to back affairs and 8 consecutive starts. Oh, btw he gets two for the price of one next week. Three games for the price of 5.4 seems like a good deal to me.
Start – Harry Kane, Spurs – If there was a no-brainer this week it sir Kane of Harry. Chasing the Golden Boot and with salah missing a catch-up versus a haphazardly Potters team that is oozing goals out of every orifice. The price drop to 12.7 is nice…for the people who sold im weeks ago or never owned him.
Sit – Romelu Lukaku, Man United – Almost a one off game the Derby with the double to follow. Most will either not own or play anyways just in hopes to have a double explosion next week. The game now is what matters and you should have waited to bring him in and went the way of Auba.
Lucky Strike – Josh King, Bournemouth The make it take it PK Norse god of the Bournemouth clan. Two goals and assist in last 4 and he plays Palace who like to concede just for the sake of it to see if they can score on ya back.
