Join us early for Arsenal vs. Chelsea and then stick around to see how all of your players from Everton and Newcastle end up doing immediately after that and top it all off with Manchester United vs. Spurs. Now THAT is a day of footie.

I can't say I have a ton invested in the opening match of the weekend from a fantasy point-of-view but Arsenal vs. Chelsea is going to be fascinating. Arsenal are coming off a nice point against Manchester City while Chelsea have been lackluster in picking up five points against QPR, Stoke and Juventis (Champions League). A home win would legitimately announce the launch of a potential title challenge. Anything less would lead you to believe they're better but just a tick off the pace at least at this point in the season.

As for my fantasy teams, here's how I'm lining them up this weekend:

Yahoo - Tim Howard, Leighton Baines, Carl Jenkinson, Branislav Ivanovic, Santi Cazorla, Michu, Marouane Fellaini, Hatem Ben Arfa, Kevin Mirallas, Nikica Jelavic, Ricky Lambert

PL.com - Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, Rafael, Leighton Baines (c), Eden Hazard, Michu, Robert Snodgrass, Carlos Tevez, Nikica Jelavic, Ricky Lambert

Looking ahead to next week, here's the schedule:

DATE HOME AWAY
Sat, Oct 6 Swansea v Reading
Sat, Oct 6 Man City v Sunderland
Sat, Oct 6 Chelsea v Norwich
Sat, Oct 6 West Brom v QPR
Sat, Oct 6 Wigan v Everton
Sat, Oct 6 West Ham v Arsenal
Sun, Oct 7 Newcastle v Man Utd
Sun, Oct 7 Southampton v Fulham
Sun, Oct 7 Liverpool v Stoke
Sun, Oct 7 Tottenham v Aston Villa

The high points that I'll be loading up on are Chelsea (vs. Norwich), Swansea (vs. Reading), and Spurs (vs. Aston Villa) depending on how Spurs look this weekend. Everton at Wigan and Arsenal at West Ham will also get solid consideration.

OK, let's chat...
