Duke’s EPL Preview 1/30

UPDATES: 

NO OX!!  MO SALAH VALUE ONLY INCREASES BECAUSE HE’LL TAKE SOME SET PIECES WHILE MILNER IS CERTAINLY AN OPTION THERE AS WELL.   MILNER IS MORE CASH WHERE AS A SAKO WOULD BE MORE GPP. 

ARSENAL GOING WITH BACK 4 AND 2 DEFENSIVE CENTER MIDS.  WORKED OUT WELL FOR BELLERIN AND MONREAL LAST TIME.  BOTH ARE VERY EXPENSIVE.  NO MIKI AND IWOBI KEEPS HIS PLACE.  DON’T LIKE HIM MUCH IN THIS SPOT.

SWANS GOING BACK 5.  KI DOES GET THE START AND WILL PROBABLY MAKE MY MAIN TEAM. 

ADRIAN STARTS FOR WEST HAM.  CRESWELL AND BYRAM START.  ZABALETA SLIDE INSIDE TO A BACK 3?  GET’S ME OFF HIM IF SO.  NOBLE DOES START!

TOWNSEND IS BACK.  BENTEKE, ZAHA, TOWNSEND AND SAKO AIN’T A BAD FRONT 4….CP ROAD FAVORITES FOR A REASON.  SAKO AT $6.5K LOOKS INTERESTING.

Nearly the end of January already….holy balls time is flying.  Fun little 3 game slate here.  Let’s not waste time and dive right in.

A couple of game notes:

West Ham are injured.  Just literally the whole team is injured.

Crystal Palace are regressing to the mean but are road “favorites” which seems odd.

Swansea STINK.

Arsenal will probably roll out new signing Mhikitaryn.  It will be interesting to see how he fits with Ozil and Ramsey.  Iwobi is probably the player relegated to the bench.  Miki has been trash this year so I’m not going there quite yet.

Huddersfield will be overwhelmed by Liverpool.

Liverpool will overwhelm Huddersfield.

We’ll take a different approach on the smaller slate and go $$$, $$, $ options at each position….

Forward:

$$$ – Salah ($11,500)

$$ – Lacazette ($8,900)

$ – Benteke ($5,500)

Midfield:

$$$ – Oxlade-Chamberlin ($9,400)

$$ – Townsend ($7,400)

$ – Noble ($3,600)

Defender:

$$$ – Gomez ($5,000)

$$ – Fosu-Mensah ($4,600)

$ – Zabaleta ($4,200)

Goalkeeper:

$$$ – Cech ($5,700)

$$ – Hennessey ($4,700)

$ – Fabianski ($3,800)

I will likely be rostering 2 of the main attacking threats from Liverpool.  Arsenal midfield is interesting but where do you go?  Is Ramsey fully back?  I don’t know that for sure.  I want 90 minutes from the majority, if not all of my M and F.

Midfield build is probably 1 mid/high and 1 low.  If Cresswell doesn’t start for West Ham that will leave Noble with most set piece duty.  West Ham team news in general will be interesting.

Defenders are likely punts to get attacking talent in your team.

GK – I think Fabianski will be popular as Arsenal have a lot of moving parts.  I might lean towards Hennessey if I have the salary. Road favorite for CP?!?!  Da fuck?

Good luck!
