Fantasy Premier League: Week 22 Recap / Week 23 Player Picks

risefromthegrave

Oh, you thought we was dead when we wasn’t.

Life, death, all kinds of shit to open up the calendar this year.

So I missed a few weeks.

But things have actually been improving on my end.

And Arsenal (@Arsenal) have been maintaining the pace at the top as well.

Quite looking forward to the match versus Southampton (@SouthamptonFC) this afternoon.

Should be the first of several tough fixtures to come up over the course of the next month or so.

3 points!

COYG!

Let’s rewind back to week 22.

Not bad since the last time I saw you, right?

Back to within the mid 300k’s in the official game and just a shout outside of the top 1000 in Yahoo!

You may have also noticed that I’ve joined a third private league in the latter format.

It is a “pro league” if you will so I’m pleased to be sitting in the top quarter for the moment.

The guy leading the table is in the top 10 overall or something crazy.

How did you make out in Gameweek 22???

Big changes moving forward.

Here are my picks for week 23:

The squads likely look quite different from the last time we went through this.

Got some late team news and added van Persie (@Persie_Official) a few minutes prior to today’s Yahoo! deadline.

Originally had Mata (@juanmata8) in for his United (@ManUtd) debut but figured I’d jump on RVP while his price is low and he’s facing a lowly opponent.

In the official game, my squad has been overhauled dramatically as I decided to play my winter wildcard prior to its expiration this coming weekend.

I lost some solid discounts so I hope the decisions I made don’t end up haunting me in the end.

Decided to swap Szczęsny (@13Szczesny13) back in for Mannone at the last minute. Foolish?

Also, a real shame to learn of Cabaye‘s departure from the Premier League (@premierleague).

A terrific and consistent fantasy performer this season and an overall pleasure to watch on the pitch.
