The Barn Door Live: Chatting Fantasy EPL Match Week 15

We'll start by hoping that Chelsea and West Ham can find the back of the goal followed by Neal hoping for big things from Brad Guzan, Esteban Granero and Kenwyne Jones during the 3 PM starts before hoping that nothing interesting at all happens between Manchester United and Reading.

The Barn Door will likely have Nicky Shorey as the featured player headed into next week.

Here are my logical picks sure to go horribly wrong: - Brad Guzan, Sebastian Bassong, Maicon, Geoff Cameron, Santi Cazorla, Michu, Raheem Sterling, Gareth Bale, Esteban Granero, Kenwyne Jones, and Luis Suarez - Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, Rafael, Leighton Baines, Eden Hazard, James Morrison, Kevin Nolan, Michu, Luis Suarez (c), Steven Fletcher, Grant Holt

Looking ahead to next weekend, the big questions will revolve around two teams - Sunderland and Reading - full of questionable fantasy picks who have double matches. Of the two, Sunderland theoretically has more talent but Reading's match-ups are definitely better with Southampton and Sunderland as opposed to the Black Cats who get Chelsea before the mid-week make-up match with Reading. Anyone who ignores Shorey for this one will have to have their head examined. Even more interesting is the fact that most of the other match-ups are very even starting with the Manchester Derby at the top and moving down through the table. There just aren't many major discrepancies in the table between opponents.

Arsenal v West Brom
Aston Villa v Stoke City
Southampton v Reading
Sunderland v Chelsea
Swansea v Norwich
Wigan v QPR
Man City v Man Utd
Everton v Tottenham
West Ham v Liverpool
Fulham v Newcastle
Sunderland v Reading
