Week 11 - Saturday

De Gea's random rests continue to frustrate the majority of fantasy managers

Another cracking day of Premier League action, but some disappointments on the fantasy front.  Firstly, Alex Ferguson frustrated the vast majority of us by resting David De Gea again and to rub salt in the wound Manchester United then went to on to keep a clean sheet with Anders Lindegaard in net. It seems this is going to become a regular thing but I'm loathe to drop DDG at 5 so I think it's something I'll put up with. Secondly, despite the news outlets stating Patrice Evra was not in the squad, it turned out this was incorrect, meaning Fabio was on the bench for my second zero. Funnily enough, I actually dropped Wes Brown to get Fabio in, so saved myself 1 point, as Brown's own goal left him negative.

My team is

DDG, Fabio, Savic, Vermaelen, Guedioula, Ramires, Silva, Van Der Vaart, Gervinho, Aguero, Suarez ...

I'm on 68 points so far thanks to Verm, Silva & Suarez and that moved me up to 3800th with Guedioula & my main investment Van Der Vaart to come tomorrow, up over 1000 so far, so it's looking like it could be a decent week despite a couple of zeros and a relatively low total. One sore spot, I missed the barndoor, but I'm not sure if there were too many "must-have" picks.

How are you getting on? Who do you have left? Did you barndoor anyone?

Cheers, Nik
