    No power for the past couple days in my corner of Canada. Sry for no links like usual.

    Man City and then…. I am not sure who will score a goal on Saturday outside of City, much less win their game.

    If City was off this slate it would make for a interesting one.

    Think this might be the first EPL slate in a while I just sit out. I have some things going on Saturday and Man City has made EPL DFS not fun any time they are on the slate against a team outside the top 4 or 5 (especially with no Liverpool, Chelsea or Tottenham on the slate). Heck, Bournemouth is not terrible and 8th in the table and Man City is still over -900 favorites and expected to score at least 3-4 goals.

    Yet if anyone can tell me who the best play from Man City is…… good luck. There are 4-5 guys you can play and any of them could end up with 20+ (or even 30+) or less than 10.

    As a GPP player you can just fade them and hope they somehow only score 1-2 goals or it comes from center backs or central midfielders. But that is extremely unlikely. You can play just 1 of them and hope you have the guy who scores a brace or even hat trick while no one else does a ton. Or you can join the masses at 30, 40 or 50+% ownership and play 2-3 of them, then hope to find a couple random, cheap goals elsewhere (and hope you get lucky at goalie). None of those options sound that enjoyable to me.

    I get this sentiment; yet, can it be any worse than your average “showdown slate” that dominates the forums even when there are huge slates later that day? Just plug in your 6 from Man City and get to work on sifting through the rubbish bins for where that other goal or two might come from.

    Yup, same line of thinking here. You’ll need some kind of MCY in your line, but who? It’s always a guessing game…

    basically, frozen hell right now

    Not to make light of your situation, but I’ve always wanted to visit that part of Canada; I bet it’s beautiful (when its warm and the power is on). Hang in there!

    Cannot agree more…. proud 100% owner of Aguero 2.5 fpts last week while Sterling and Sane feasted… also proud owner of Aguero 40+fpts back in September.
    Just a crapshoot

    nah totally get it, no worries lol
    It’s pretty awesome, I work nights at a hotel so sunlight is never high on my priority anyway. It’d just be nice if they plowed the roads once and awhile, and if our power grid wasn’t above ground hung on toothpicks, that’s help as well lolol.

    I feel rather obliged to play Bournemouth.
    However, I also feel obliged to literally run in any direction but at Callum Wilson for 6.9k. He’s scored a combined 2.5fpts this season from that salary.
    Josh King? Feeling some Josh King/Charlie Austin GPP cards.

  • hcassidy

    Pretty dead in here for a ‘craptastic slate’ I just got done working a 12 getting ready to go to bed so wont see lineups so played 1 card for a .25 with darts of darts and will wake up to see if I cashed or should of road the MCI train.

  • dnely17

    So no Aguero or Mahrez. I’m locking in Sane and Sterling and going from there.

    don’t sleep on Jesus, he could come off and let Sterling play up front, but I highly doubt that. Mahrez is probably coming on for one of the three, my bet is Sterling, just because he’s so high owned LOL

    No Aguero on bench. Jesus sees 90? Tough to fade.

    Had plenty of Bernardo, bit thin but I fancied the ownership leverage would work for me.

  • JH822547

    If you play Matt Richie you really, really want the other team to score first.
