Moneyball – Raheem Sterling

The term ‘Moneyball’ should not become a synonym for “obscure” as value can sometimes still be found in even the brightest of spotlights. Therefore, having highlighted some fringe Fantasy prospects in the first few entries in this series, we will turn our attention this week to somewhere well overdue some strong returns and Fantasy attention: Anfield.

    Comparing HBA and Fellaini, who's the better choice for the next 5 weeks or so??
    On HBA for now, but EVE'e form could be a concern.

        Next 2 fellaini becaue MUN and SUN especially is not a pretty fixture for HBA. But GW9 NEW have a good run, and a lot of good home games if you check. But it is possible to have both players and still do well.

          Its this thought that put me off Bale last week and made me pay! Another alternative would be to do Santi > Bale and get him back for Fellaini next week or so.

        Surely Allen has to go, he isnt fantasy gold the role he plays although he would be decent in the sky game with all his passing. So transfers should be allen to sterling and then lescott to vertongen, city might get a clean sheet but theres no guarantee on who plays in it except hart and kompany.

      Team looks strong. Not tempted to go Yaya to Bale? I might be.

      On a different point, I have written your name as LateRiser, as in one who wakes up late, but I've seen others write it as Lateriser, as if you Laterise people. Is it the latter, as in "I laterised that b*tch"? That would be cooler than the way I wrote it . . .

      neither played in the 3-0 win last night, i think its likely both will be out for MUN. Doesant look too good with williamson and perch against rooney and RVP. Will need a better showing from gutierrez back tracking and will rely on HBA and Ba to win.

        I'm hoping that the fact we didn't rest either perchinio or williamson, means that at least one of saylor or colo have a good chance of playing on sunday. But it could just as likely be because we simply don't have anyone else!!
