The Barn Door Live: Chatting Fantasy EPL Super Bowl Sunday Edition

Look away Chelsea supporters, this guy wrecked your day yesterday. - Paul Thomas

There were unexpected performances all over the place yesterday, what will West Brom vs. Spurs and Manchester City vs. Liverpool bring us today on Super Bowl Sunday?

Mark Bunn had a great match for me that was almost immediately nullified by a number of the other inexpensive keepers (Jussi Jaaskelainen, Wojciech Szczesny, and Adam Federici to name three) have double digit matches as well. Some newcomers - Moussa Sissoko, Christopher Samba, Andre Townsend, and Nacho Monreal - also had exceptional outings with Sissoko's brace being the biggest output of the day overall. On the disappointing side, Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney both scored but managed to pick up yellow cards and generally not pile the phantom points on top of their scoring efforts. Michu continued to disappoint throwing out a zero despite playing the full 90 for the Swans. My sense is that there would have been a huge rush to drop him even at his entry price if Swansea didn't have a double match coming up next week. If he doesn't do well then patience for many may well run out.

The big question remaining today is how Liverpool does on their trip to the Etihad and how that impacts prices for Liverpool's two-gamers. For the first time in recent memory someone (Luis Suarez) has surpassed Robin van Persie's price. Managers would surely like to see the prices of Suarez, Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge and Glen Johnson (among others) fall for the occasion of Liverpool's two matches over the next game week.

With that, let's chat.

Oh, and my pick is San Francisco 49ers 27; Baltimore Ravens 24 in the Harbaugh Bowl.
