Fantasy Premier League: Week 7 Player Picks

fantasyworrySo you know your fantasy obsession has hit a new level when you start setting your alarm to beat out the morning transfer deadline.

With Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) a doubt for today, I woke up early hoping to swap him out for either RVP (@Persie_Official) or Lukaku (@RomeluLukaku9) if news came out that Wazza would not be match fit.

But now they say Persie may also be in doubt due to a toe injury.

United (@ManUtd) have been terrible so far this season, with Rooney their sole bright spot, so I stuck with him despite the risk.

He was already out for the draw against Shakhtar (@shakhtarteam) and it was due to a knock on the shin picked up during training.

In fact, all of Rooney‘s injuries this year have come courtesy of a teammate.

Any lingering resentment due to his transfer request? (Fergie INSISTS it happened)

Nevertheless, I picked up Barkley (@RBarkley20) and put him on the bench as my top sub in case Wayne doesn’t make the side.

Lukaku is in the “goals galore” category but I still have to hope that Moyes is desperate enough for the 3 points that Shrek will start.

If they can’t beat Sunderland (@SAFCofficial), you would think the distress at Old Trafford will be ramped up immensely.

Supporters can’t be happy to see their fabled club sitting mid-table after nearly two months of play.

Arsenal (@Arsenal) don’t play until Sunday and I am sticking with Giroud (@_OlivierGiroud_) yet again.

He didn’t get the captaincy from me in either format but I am giving the band to Özil (@MesutOzil1088) for the first time in the official game, as I envision him running circles around a banged-up West Brom side.

COYG!

COYG!

Onto the squad picks!
