Moneyball – Djibril Cisse

The options so far in this Moneyball series have tended to be relatively obscure players from the deeper ends of the Fantasy listings, generally plying their trade among the league’s apparent lower classes and thus away from the eye of the average manager. This week’s candidate is the polar opposite of that trend as few players have the potential to garner more attention than the eye-catching and somewhat mercurial Djibril Cisse.

          Thats a difficult one. McAnuff is the other option to bench.

          I'd never bench a striker. Even at home to Norwich, I'd probably bench McAnuff.

                          Aguero as Captain against the hordes arm-banding RVP.

                          Confident, yet apprehensive. That Spurs defense looks shoddy and Aguero is World Class and explosive.

                          RVP is the man in form.

                            I have both and not sure what to do. Might just make Mata captain

                              I went with RVP as well, but Cazorla and Mata/Hazard would be tempting if you had them.

                                    As Cole and Wilson are both injured and won't play on the weekend I was thinking of one of the following:

                                    1) Cole->Rafael
                                    2)Cole->Baines
                                    3)Wilson->Wilkinson

                                    Which do you think is the best? Thanks!

                                        1, considering the fixtures. But 2 also looks good, considering Baines is never a bad player to have in your side.

                                                      Re-post as last one cut off part way through:

                                                      Need to bring in a cheap (4.5m) midfielder to replace Nolan so I can bring in RVP in the next round (will also be downgrading McAuley and Hangeland).

                                                      My current midfield is: Mata--Caz--Bale--Fellaini--Nolan

                                                      Any suggestions?
