New season, same ole Smokey goodness. 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 1 (plus a sleeper/under-owned fella that should be owned and isn’t.)
I wish the FPl scoring system was more like Oprah.  You get a clean sheet!  You get a Clean Sheet! Yes, even you get a clean sheet.  Unfortunately it doesn't work that way, that just having someone in attendence gets one.  It is done the old fashioned way and it is earned.  the clean sheet guessing game has been blowing up in our faces as of late as teams that look like tidy games have yielded results not so comforting to the point accumulation.  Best advice is don't gamble.  they have gambling anonymous hotlines to help you in such affairs.  keep it simple gather the best guys at an affordable rate, even the cheapest options to a great defense, and rock out with that.  At worst you need three great/good defenseman.  I recommend having at least four with intrinsic value and then work from there.  take the gamble out of the equation and just follow the buzzards of the FPL universe, but don't be a complete lemming.  Forge your own path to defensive greatness and look for differentials they are out there.  All you have to do is look.  here are the week 12 FPl rankings for keeps and D.  Cheers!

With the Carabao Cup, or whatever it is being called today, being played this week and 11 teams in the Premier being involved in it, I figured waiting a day isn't such a bad idea.  I mean, when does waiting to see the overall details come back to haunt you?  Maybe with a cheating ex-girlfriend, but other than that, I am clueless.  She got what she will deserve, and no one will ever find her body... I am kidding.  So moving on to Week 10 of the FPL, we either own Harry Kane or we do not.  Unfortunately, there is no middle road, like joint custody.  If you look back on most or all the high scoring FPL teams, he was an intricate part and moving forward I think he is a better rotation-less risk than the City duo.  So if you are chasing the ever fruitful Forward teet, lean in that direction.  But that is not what this Transfer post is all about, we want the here and now... and the unheralded.  The best part is you get the best of me saying it like it is about guys who either have a great match-up, good form, or I am just batty about.  So enjoy the transfer ideas for Week 10 of the FPL.  Cheers!
