Ready for week 17?

Are you taking a risk by having Wayne Rooney in your line up or keeping it safe and searching for other options ?? It's that time before the deadline that you are making those last minute changes so let's take a final look about this week player picks.

Paul Gilham

How annoying is David Moyes! i think everybody wanted a definite answer on whether Rooney is out or he will play but he gave us the usual quote ( Doubtful) and that really is the most annoying comment for us,so i am staying away from Mr Moyes puzzle and won't have any United strikers as its way too risky for this week.

So let's take a look about the other alternatives and a quick look of all games and the players that should be in your team.

Liverpool vs Cardiff City : I am going for a Big Liverpool win with a clean sheet as well,I got 6 players from Liverpool for this week and i am expecting a good 3:0 score from the Reds.

I really recommend having at minimum of 3 players from Liverpool this week ( Def+Mid+Suarez)

Fantasy Player to watch : Luis Suarez

Man United vs West Ham : I think also you should have at least 2 players from United ( Jones+Midfielder),the notable candidate for the midfield spot will be either Januzaj or Kagawa with both expecting to play,if you wanna take a bit of a risk by putting a striker then it should be Chicharito.

Fantasy player to watch : Adnan Januzaj

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle : I am going for a Newcastle win and i am sure lots of fantasy players will have Ward+Debuchy in their line up,i do think that both team will score so i won't expect any CS points from any of the defenders.

Fantasy player to watch : Loic Remy

Fulham vs Man City : I think the big question for all fantasy managers is whether to have Negredo in your line up or no, Fulham are really struggling and i am expecting a Man City victory,David Silva might play in the hole behind Negredo so he can really be a good pick this week.

Fantasy Player to watch : David Silva

Stoke City vs Aston Villa : Not the best of fixture for fantasy purposes,i am staying completely away from this one as it can end in a 0:0 boring draw so its not worth it to spend in any of the players.

Fantasy Player to watch : Christian Benteke

Sunderland vs Norwich : I am expecting a Sunderland victory here,Jozy Altidore or Fletcher can be a really good picks for this week,also if you want to have a Sunderland midfielder then you should probably go for Seb Larsson,he is taking all set pieces and racking up points for fun.

Fantasy Player to watch : Jozy Altidore

West Brom vs Hull City : Tough one to call especially that it will be the first game for West Brom without Steve Clarke so you don't really whether they will change a lot of players from the starting line up or no,so i would really stay away for this week from WBA,i would have recommended Shane Long but he can be on the bench so just stay away from this game.

Fantasy player to watch : Chris Brunt

Southampton vs Tottenham : Another tough call and a draw would probably be on the card,we still don't know what will be the formation and line up for Tottenham,so its also better to stay away add to that their current miserable form while Southampton are playing some decent football and i really got a feeling that Adam Lallana will score big this week.

Fantasy player to watch : Adam Lallana

Swansea City vs Everton : Both teams plays really good football and i am going for an away win for Everton,i think having an Everton striker in your line up is not a bad idea at all,its your choice between Lukaku and Mirallas,both loves playing away from home and loves taking the early shot.

Fantasy player to watch : Kevin Mirallas

Arsenal vs Chelsea : The big Monday game should be a cracking game,the usual question will be whether to have Ozil in your starting 11 or drop him to the bench,Currently i am having him on the bench and hopefully he won't score a lot of points this week,if you wanna have an Arsenal player in your line up then it should be Ramsey or Walcott.

Fantasy Player to watch : Theo Walcott

I am currently on De Gea/Jones/Skrtel/Johnson/Henderson/Sterling/Coutinho/Januzaj/Lukaku/Remy/Suarez (C)

I am really heavy on Liverpool this week and hopefully they can have a big win! finger crossed :)

Good Luck,
