Week 29; injuries, in's, outs and wins

A reduced choice of players picks this week. But who has made it to be considered an option in week 29.

I'm in EVERY team this week.  But am I your captain?

West Bromwich Albion

Out: Billy Jones,

Doubt: Chris Brunt, James Morrison

In: Steven Reid

Win: Brunt if he starts

This is a week to get 11 starters and 1 bench cover if possible.  It is also a week where you will have to pick a player or two you don't quite like.  As normal i'm only sorting my team at the last minute.

Assuming Brunt is fit it currently looks like this

Ruddy, Fabio, Terry, Dann, Lallana, Brunt, Ince, Lampard, Holtby, Murray, Rooney

I have bench cover with Heitinga but I'm not happy.  I have a nagging doubt that Norwich under pressure can keep 5 home clean sheets in a row even against Adamless Stoke City.  Fabio is always a bench risk.  Dann offers a start but few points.  JT will start and spurs are poor at crosses so he may along with Cahill/Ivanovic get chances.  Brunt is an injury doubt, Holtby may or may not start, Rooney over RVP is always a gamble.  Oh course the biggest gamble is Lampard.  I'm convinced he starts this one.  Oscar and Rameris played in africa Wednesday and Lamps didn't start last week either.  A derby game is one to pick your reliable players so I feel Jose starts him.  He will be on pens and is fighting for his world cup and Chelsea place.  I can see no Spurs clean sheet either.
