Another disappointing week in week 2 has me scrambling for answers. I'm trying to follow The Rules and Mo's Rules and it's not happening for me. Looking at the team I have "on paper" for week three and I'm less than thrilled.
Rooney came in, but as well as he's doing he's going to have to keep producing at that level to be worth 20. Would it be worth gambling with a cheaper option? There are equally hot players like Long and Klasnic, as well as gambles with high upside like Torres.
In midfield it's all well and good but pehaps a little safe. Yes, Cabaye is doing fine and he is home to Fulham. But is he going to get the goal or score a ton of fantasy points? I guess he could. But would it suit me more to field Sessegnon or Cahill who are more out-right attackers?
In defence, I like the idea of Bosingwa again but he's just a touch expensive. I wonder if I should just keep Richards for a little less. I'd be happy enough with Brown - why did all of you gamble on him in a derby match? - but I'd be just as happy to get someone else.
So... all very wishy-washy. But that's what a barn door team is -- a canvas. A wet lump of clay to be molded over the course of the week.
How is your clay shaping up?
UPDATE: Rooney/Cabaye/Bosingwa to Long/Malouda/Kelly? Or will Barton's possible move to QPR enhance Cabaye's value enough to make him work keeping?
