Captains

Captain Sensible – Aubameyang can challenge Salah and Hazard

It looks like a three-way battle for the Gameweek 22 captaincy this weekend.

Fantasy Premier League managers are having to think big as we head into the first round of action for some time.

With the wealth of premium options all in decent form at the start of 2019, choosing the right captain could prove harder than ever.

We’re here to analyse the debate from all angles by looking at individual data, team attacking statistics and opposition defences.

Captain Poll

Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) is set to win the Gameweek 22 captain poll as, at the time of writing, he has 40% backing from the voters. The Egyptian faces Brighton on Saturday afternoon having scored 12 points in three of his last four Premier League outings. Salah’s ownership continues to rise again, now just over 42% after his excellent recent form, which is probably the reason why he has done so well in our poll. The Liverpool man seems to be returning to the ‘auto-captain’ status he ended the 2017/18 campaign in.

Some way behind Salah in second place is Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard (£11.1m). It appears that 23% of our voters are confident the Belgian will deliver in Gameweek 22 after two consecutive blanks to round off the hectic festive fixtures. If we are to believe that Hazard tends to punish those who sell him after blanks, maybe he is indeed set for some attacking returns at home to Newcastle on Saturday. The Magpies have registered just one clean sheet in their last five away matches.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) looks set to claim the bronze medal with his 11% backing ahead of Arsenal’s trip to West Ham. The Hammers still have just one clean sheet at home while Aubameyang has attacking returns in all but one away match against sides outside the top six this season.

Sergio Aguero (£11.2m) is the best of the rest with just 6% backing, the voters suitably afraid both of the Wolves defence and the form that Manchester City have shown in Premier League matches. As we discussed in our recent League Cup notes, a 9-0 win over League Cup opposition could mean little when the top flight action is resumed. Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) has just a third of Aguero’s support, with 2% of the vote, with Leroy Sané (£9.5m) even further behind on 1.25%.

Sandwiched amongst those options are Harry Kane (£12.6m) whose 2.49% share is reflective of a match against Manchester United, while Felipe Anderson (£7.4m) remains the most popular West Ham man. The Brazilian has garnered 1.9% of the vote at the time of writing.

Richarlison (£6.9m) is the only other player over 1% while Marko Arnautovic (£6.9m) and Son Heung-min (£8.8m) were close at the time of writing. The West Ham man on 0.95% and Spurs’ South Korean international with 0.83%.

      Why wouldn't he?

      yes. why not?

        4pts clear at top of the league, just lost to the team in 2nd. Not the time to rest your best player imo

        Because of the travelling?

      if he got subbed in 88th minute does that change things

      Probably, but he has had a bit of a rock n roll jetset lifestyle these past few days, flying to Africa for the African player of year awards, then to Dubai for Arab player awards, then back to Liverpool today, after playing second half v Wolves on Monday... will he be full of his usual zip against brighton on Saturday?

      Brighton at home can be a horrible team to pay against at the best of times... Liverpool only beat them 1-0 at anfield earlier in the season... Liverpool could also be entering a crisis, after picking up injuries and losing a 7 point league lead and exiting the FA cup in the space of a few days.

      A draw/defeat would really put the cat amongst the pigeons

      1. Hotdogs for Tea

        6 days, 21 hours ago

        In the last six home games Brighton have conceded 81 shots, the fourth worst in the division.

        They have also conceded the highest number of chances, 28, down the right flank (I assume the attacking flank is the right flank ?)

        1. Shark Team
          • 1 Year
          6 days, 21 hours ago

          It is the defensive flank

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 days, 21 hours ago

            Ah ok

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

          6 days, 20 hours ago

          Shots conceded is way too crude to be of any use. What type of shots were they?

          Anyone who watches Brighton play at home knows they are tough - they have only conceded 11 goals in 10 home games - not far off the best home defensive record in the league after Liverpool (3 goals conceded at home)

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 days, 20 hours ago

            9th for conceding the most number of shots on target in the last 6 home games - 25 shots

            I think the stats suggest they have been a bit lucky and have over achieved defensively

            ...and now they play Liverpool who are averaging 3 goals a game in the last 7 games and are second highest behind Spurs for goals scored with 14 goals in the last 6 away games ... mmm ... 😉

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              6 days, 17 hours ago

              That’s the point stats can be so decieiving 😉 Shots and shots on target are right up there with XG and XA in the “dodgy for FPL decision making” bucket.

              Which defence is statistically better - conceding 100 shots and 10 goals, or conceding 50 shots and 20 goals?

              Can you be lucky for 11 games - Seems a long time to consistently concede so few goals at home?

              Plus the fact that they only conceded one away to Liverpool? There definitely aren’t many tougher defences to play against in the premiership than away to Brighton it’s not fashionable, it if you watch the games you’ll see why 🙂

        Wow.... how to make a man consider changing his current captain 😀

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 21 hours ago

          Have you flown First Class or on a Private Jet before ? I assume it isn’t too bad 😉

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 days, 20 hours ago

            Yes that’s why it’s considered best practise in elite game preparation to fly thousands of miles in the days beforehand to several junket waste of time award ceremonies.

            Really gives a player that extra 1 or 2 % they need to perform on the day lol

            1. Hotdogs for Tea

              He will be fine, he doesn’t drink alcohol ... no worse than Man U going to Dubai 🙂

              I assume you don’t own him and you are trying to convince yourself it’s all going to be ok 😉

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                6 days, 17 hours ago

                Oh I thought utd went to Dubai for a training camp?

                Maybe they are doing this new found method of game preparation which involves playing on Monday night, flying to Africa Tuesday, sitting at a nonsense award ceremony, flying to Dubai Tuesday, taking part in. Another nonsense award ceremony, flying to England Thursday, play game Saturday - apparently it’s really catching on as a way to ensure players are 100% at their best and even give them that crucial extra 1 or 2% that makes the difference at the top 😉

        Crisis... 😀

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 days, 20 hours ago

          Injuries, 7 point lead lost to main rivals, exiting FA Cup... it’s been a bad few days for them... if they don’t beat Brighton you can bet your bottom dollar the word “crisis”will be getting dusted off by every press establishment under the sun

        this was my line of questioning hahaha and i got first post on the page, day made

        6 days, 21 hours ago

        Travelling 1st class is a bit different though... I'm sure he is fully relaxed and will be playing the full game despite travelling half way around the world this week

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 days, 20 hours ago

          I don’t think there’s a massive doubt that he’ll play - but how good has his preparation been with that week?

          These games can surprise, especially after such a disruptive week for Mo, and playing against a horrible Brighton defence, one of the best home defences in the league (check out the list of teams they are conceding less than at home - it’s quite a long list )

    6. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I think he will. Still think he gets 1 goal tops

  2. Chelsea Psycho
    • 4 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    any saints fans on here who can shed any light on the keeper situation?

    will mcarthy win his spot back?

    1. Webbinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I expect McCarthy to start tomorrow

      1. Webbinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        Juast to add. Ralph wanted to look at him before Jan window to assess his squad. He said he would give him 2 games. He has now confirmed Fraser Forster is not in the clubs pans. So its McCarthy #1 for now, but he has no room for error

        1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 21 hours ago

          Are you confident enough to suggest bringing him in? The saving I could make on Fabs downgrade would be useful

      2. tisza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        any particular reason why following Gunn's MOM performance at Chelsea in last PL game (also Saints 1st CS for 11 GWs) ?

    2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I'd love to know this. Gunn at 4.3 would be excellent with their fixtures.

  3. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Best way to save cash if needed? Think medium term and to aid Salah-fund.

    A) Pereya/Fraser (instead of Richarlison)
    B) Arnie/Barnes/Wilson (instead of Rashford)
    C) Guaita (instead of Fabianski - have Button)
    D) Auba (sell Kane - A/B/C means losing Auba next week)

    1. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      D means Kane to Auba?

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        Sorry - I have both.
        D means I'd lose Kane (this week) instead of Auba (which I'd do next week).

    2. JAMO97
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      C if nailed otherwise A for me.

  4. Benteke Fried Chicken
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    If on WC would bringing in Arnie be the wrong thing to do?!

    Would.t forgive myself if i bottled it and he started and scored tomorrow.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      He’s only be a transfer away. I’d leave him out.

  5. OBAMA
    • 4 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    What do we think of this WC team? What am I missing / What do I need?

    Do we think there are a lot of goals in spurs vs united?

    Gua / Foster

    Pereira / Trent / Digne

    Snod / Richarlison / Salah / Sané / Deulofeu

    Kane / Aubameyang

    0.9m in bank

    1. OBAMA
      • 4 Years

      Should I do auba -> rashford + rich -> hazard?

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        Probably just because of the range of assets in midfield if you want to change - but it's a close call

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Too tough to tell with that many players missing from your squad. No Utd is very surprising given their fixtures.

    3. Swanremainsthesame
      • 3 Years

      A bench ?

  6. unitednations

    6 days, 21 hours ago

    couple of quick questions:

    1) Who would you want from next gw: Hazard or Sterling?
    2) Start Schindler or Jimenez?
    3) Captain Hazard or Sterling?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  7. XABI 15

    How would you rank these City assets in terms of points potential?

    Sterling Aguero Sane

    1. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Long term, Aguero, Sterling, Sane

  8. skodaole2
    • 6 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Bench one of

    a) Torreira (whu)
    b) Armstrong (lei)
    c) Murphy (HUD)

    Murphy has the easier fixture but seems like a low scoring game, Armstrong had a minor injury but his manager said he is fit and Torreira will surely start in a probable high scoring game but is a DM. Any help appreciated.

    1. JAMO97
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      B i'd edge. I'd definitely start Murphy then tough choice

      1. skodaole2
        • 6 Years

        Thanks, thats what i thought. Really difficult choice between the two

      Downgrade Aguero and get a proper defence

  10. Do I Not Like Orange
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    With Lovren injured, which of these moves is best?

    A) Save FT. Start one of Doherty or (ugh) Schindler, see if Lovren recovers for next GW.
    B) Lovren > TAA

    1. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      B
      Lovren is a horrible defender. Even if recovered he will lose his place very quickly.
      All the goals conceded come from his side, he was marking both Kun and Sane when they scored... speaks a lot.

    Nice little bit of analysis from Lars Sivertson on Guardian Football Weekly re: Liverpool:

    "If you look at the last seven Premier League winners, when they went out of the FA Cup and out of Europe, you’ll actually see that 11 out of 14 cup runs were done by mid-March. 

    “So it is a trend that the teams that go on to win the league are usually done with all this cup business pretty early in the season. 

    “Specifically with Liverpool, under Klopp they have almost a quarter of a point extra as an average points pick-up, if they have four or more rest days ahead of a game. 

    “If they have four or more rest days ahead of a game they pick up 2.11 points on average, whereas if they have three days or fewer, their average is 1.87.

    “So we know for a fact that Liverpool struggle when they have more games. 

    “They are less likely to win if they have fewer days in which to rest. 

    “The trend was very similar for Klopp when he was at Dortmund"

    1. LosBlancos

      Yeah, Klopp really doesn't care about the cups

      1. boc610
        • 7 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        It's their average pools points tally when they have 4 days off ( as they have had this week)that interests me, especially when picking mo as captain. When CL starts again it will be back to 3 days

      Benching Jimi against a top 6 club is brave! Can his streak of points against the big boys continue? I’m hoping so, never like betting against a streak.

      But if a cold.

  14. Goonerly
    • 1 Year

    A) Sane & Rich
    B) Sterling & Redmond

    1. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      A by a mile for me.
      Redmond is a trap

  15. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    In the last six home games Brighton have conceded 81 shots, the fourth worst in the division.

    They have also conceded the highest number of chances, 28, down the right flank (I assume the attacking flank is the right flank ?)

    Salah may have the freedom of Brighton tomorrow 🙂

    1. tokara
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      never concede more than two at home

      1. LosBlancos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        this

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        Suggests they have been a bit lucky ? Generally luck runs out when you play Liverpool 😉

        1. LosBlancos
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          6 days, 20 hours ago

          Not at all, statistically they are pretty spot on on goals conceded.
          Home fixtures (last four) they have 4.4 xGC and 4 GC. So they average 1 GC per match at home for eve,ars,che,cpa.
          Three out of those four are good attacking sides. Liverpool scoring more than 2 is unlikely.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 days, 20 hours ago

            Brighton are 9th for conceding the most number of shots on target in the last 6 home games - 25 shots

            I think the stats suggest they have been a bit lucky and have over achieved defensively

            ...and now they play Liverpool who are averaging 3 goals a game in the last 7 games and are second highest behind Spurs for goals scored with 14 goals in the last 6 away games ... mmm ...

        Obviously a sofa and not a Salah owner 😉

          Obviously a Salah captainer?

            Not sure yet, I do fancy Hazard at home

    thoughts on this team please:

    Guaita (Button)
    TAA Pereira Digne (Holebas Doherty)
    Salah Haz Sterling Sane Pogba
    Rashford Kamara (Quaner)

    I guess Auba instead of Sterling may seem more sensible, but fancy Sterling to do really well over the next 4 with less rotation...451 when Kamara has a bad fixture (or if he's terrible tomorrow)

    1. XABI 15
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      ive got a simlar set up. Think power 5 midfield over next few weeks is way to go

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        yeah, it's very tempting

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      Choose one between Sterling and Sane.
      Then choose between the city man and Hazard and upgrade one of your fodder forwards.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        to who? Arnie/Wilson the only other 'non-premium' I'd consider I think

  17. fachada

    Would you guys play Holebas or Kola this week if you own Arnie?

    1. Benteke Fried Chicken
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      holebas is a troll and kola can get attacking points which could lead to bonus.

      Stay away from holebas he will haunt you.

  18. GoonerByron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Would you get rid of any of these midfielders for Ozil on Draft?

    Hazard (lol) - Fraser - Lingard - Walcott - Mahrez

    1. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      maybe Lingard/Walcott

    2. The 5% Team
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Walcott for sure

      1. GoonerByron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        Just worried Walcott could get a few goals with their fixtures so nice in the next 5?

        1. Benteke Fried Chicken
          6 days, 21 hours ago

          walcott is finished

    3. CROCosta
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      ozil? walcott? mahrez? lingard? are you going for maverick of the season title?

  19. Tabbara
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Which option is better:
    A: TAA for Zabaleta
    B: Barnes for Ings
    C: Both (-4)
    Thx

    1. fenixri
      • 2 Years

      A

    2. Hasselbaink Forever

      A

    3. LosBlancos

      6 days, 21 hours ago

      A

  20. fenixri
    • 2 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Am I set for this week?

    Fab
    Alonso Digne AWB TAA
    Hazard(C) Pogba Rich
    Auba(vc) Kane RAshford

    Bench: Speroni, Fraser, Doherty, Gibbs-White

  21. Manani
    • 7 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Fabianksi Button
    AWB Dohetry TAA Digne Holebas
    Salah Hazard FAnderson Richarlison Pogba
    Kane Jimenez Kamara

    0.5mITB, 2FT

    how should I spend it?
    thinking ditching FAnderson?

    1. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      keep for one more GW?
      Arsenal defense is poor

  22. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Is there any sense in keeping Martial now?

    Have 2fts and can't easily figure out a move this week (either him out to someone of the same price or cheaper, or Fabs to cheaper keeper). Will most likely get Rashford or Pogba soon to cover Utd.

    1. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Pogba better option, but wait for Spurs to pass at least

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 21 hours ago

        I basically hold him or get Richarlison

    2. Daniel Exeter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Why get rid?

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        Risk to his starting place

  23. Zombanksy
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    Haz + F.And > Salah + Kante?

    1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      How much can you afford in the Kante slot?

      1. Zombanksy
        6 days, 19 hours ago

        I can afford 5.0. Just short of Brooks.

    2. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I wouldn't
      Better options than Kante too, Hudson Odoi could be a worthy punt

    3. Swanremainsthesame
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      Why all the F.Anderson downers?
      Is he injured, transferred to China, seen saying wtf to the manager, Arsenal signed VvD or something?

  24. LosBlancos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    I think Auba is more likely to bag a goal or two than Hazard, yet I think Hazard on his day is the best player in the league.

    Im biased towards Haz. The article is giving me mixed feelings too, RMT recommends one of these heavily yet the author thinks otherwise.

    Thoughts? 🙂

    1. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Hazard

      1. LosBlancos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        Most likely my captain, when in doubt go for the RMT recommendation and the player you like more I say 😀

  25. OBAMA
    • 4 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    What do we think of this WC team? What am I missing / What do I need?

    Gua / Foster

    Pereira / Trent / Digne

    Snod / Richarlison / Salah / Sané / Deulofeu

    Kane / Aubameyang

    (Jonny,Bednarek,Kamara)

    0.9mil in bank

    I've hesitant about having united in this week since they're playing spurs... is this a mistake?

    I could do Auba > Rash & Rich > Haz?

    1. OBAMA
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I've been hesitant*

    2. Gringo Kid
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Fraser for Snod, long term and short term much better option

    3. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      United have a good run after Spurs though.
      Maybe look at Martial instead of Richarlison - after this week perhaps?

  26. AYLD28
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    RMWCT

    Guita (Lloris)
    Pereira TAA AWB Robertson (Bednarak)
    Salah Sane Pogba Hazard Camarasa
    Rashford Aubam (Kamara)

    Moves would be:

    Fab > Lloris
    Digne > Pereira
    Doherty > Robertson
    Shaw > Bednarak
    Sterling > Sane
    Pererya > Camarasa
    Jimenez > Rashford

    1. Teddy Brewski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      Downgrade Lloris to 4.5 or lower to rotate with Guaita
      Upgrade Kamara to Barnes

      1. gdeane491
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        Would say the opposite, keep Lloris but ditch Guaita for Hamer and keep the 0.2 imo - otherwise good team

  27. Daniel Exeter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    No one considering Mane as an alternative to Salah?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Nobody.

    2. #FPLBhuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I am mate

      the sheep will all captain salah, I think mane is a great option myself.

      1. Teddy Brewski
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        The sheep, oooooookkkkkk. Owning and captaining the best fpl player. BAAAAAAAA!

    3. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      Not yet

  28. #FPLBhuna
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    best combo

    a) sterling + camarasa
    b) mane + siggy
    c) mane + rich

    1. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      c) for me

      I would say A) but I want to wait little bit more on City to pick up form

    2. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      Depends on when Mane hits form

    3. XABI 15
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      A

  29. altan8797
    • 2 Years
    6 days, 21 hours ago

    I think for the first time this year I'm not captaining any of the 3 popular choices. How bad do you think captaining sterling could go this week?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      Not very

    2. #FPLBhuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      I like it a lot

      considering bringing him in and captaining him myself pal

    3. b82rz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 21 hours ago

      great choice

    4. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      To be honest there are many great choices and every one of them could haul big or blank. It's coin toss.

    5. altan8797
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      cheers

    6. LosBlancos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      I really don't rate Sterling and highly regret getting him out of fear before CPA.
