Captain Sensible – Gameweek 24

Our Gameweek regular for members is rolled out once again ahead of tomorrow’s deadline. Liverpool’s trip to West Brom sees Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge place highly in the Captain Poll, whilst United’s visit to Stoke also supplies our analysis with a couple of popular contenders. Arsenal’s home game against Palace also comes into the reckoning, whilst we also unmask this week’s “Captain Unsensible” and cite the statistics to back up our bold punt:

          Eriksen and Dzeko are in better form but only draw back is Dzeko is likely to get rotated and you never know when it will happen.

                      If you have Suarez, no Arsenal attackers, but a City player in MF, would you rather have:

                      1) Studge
                      2) Giroud
                      3) Negredo or Dzeko

                      for the next few wks?

                          This is what I'm struggling with. I have Suarez and Bony and need to get rid of Aguero. I have mids of Haz,, YaYa, Mata, Eriksen, and Noone.

                          I could sit tight this week and play 3-5-2 since Noone has a good fixture. Or I could go Aguero to either Sturridge or Giroud. I'm leaning towards Giroud, but he doesn't seem to get a lot of love.

                              Giroud isn't bad at all...he just isn't explosive and has a lot of pts. competition on his team...also, cruddy fixtures upcoming. Studge has been an absolute monster all season and he's the one I'm leaning toward (I don't see Pool's attack slowing down any time soon and those 2 tend to hog the goals/assists).

                                  Good point. I don't have any Arsenal attackers, but I think I'm okay with that. I may go Sturridge this week and bench Noone (or bench Bony). Then, next week go Dzeko for Bony and maybe even Lallana for Noone, still leaving me with 0.3 in the bank.

                                  That would give me a front 8 of Haz, YaYa, Mata, Eriksen, Lallana, Sturridge, Suarez, Dzeko and just one -4 hit to do it.

                                  Not bad, right?

                                      Pretty damned good front eight (I prefer a studly front seven instead w a 5th mid who is cheap, but serviceable - Don't like leaving high salaried players on the bench, ever)...but try not to plot out too far ahead...each week brings new injuries and issues as we've seen in the last 3 weeks.

                                      I too can live without Arsenal attackers for now...

                                          I hear you on the 4 + 1 in the mid, which is why I have Noone. My defenders aren't great, but serviceable so maybe I could invest there. My thinking on getting the solid 5 in the midfield is in case of rotation risk for the teams playing CL, Europa, FA Cup, etc. So, if YaYa, Haz, or Eriksen don't play the occasional EPL match, I'd still have a really solid replacement. Makes for a selection headache each week, though. Here's my defense in case you'd want to comment:

                                          GK: Mannone / McGregor (suspended)
                                          DEF: Kol, Azpi, Gab, Vlaar, Bruce

                                              Yeah, your D isn't awful, nor great...Lolarov seems a good place to start upgrading (Get a nice steady 6 dollar D who you can count on each wk.)

                                                  Good point. I had Terry and ditched him at the WC last week. Maybe go Azpi to Cahill or pick up a Southampton defender in place of Vlaar. Thanks for discussing. Not sure I've helped you, though.

                                                      Oh, and, I agree on Kolarav. I fear rotation with him and I'm also looking ahead to GW28 when City won't play. Probably too far ahead to look, but hate to go into that game with 3 City (YaYa, Dzeko, Kol) and one ManU (Mata), leaving me no wiggle room.

                                                      Hull

                                                                                Does anyone think it would be a mistake to take a 4 point hit to remove Aguero for Dzeko?

                                                                                I have Coleman and Aguero injured and they will be replace by Januzaj and Mutch.

                                                                                Anyone think it is worth it?
