The semi finals of the FA Cup take place this weekend where Liverpool play Everton and Chelsea are against Tottenham.
This has left us with only 6 league games this weekend.
Its an ideal situation for the ones who don't hold many players on discounts but
Incase you do hold 'in-form' players like Cisse,Dempsey,Ben Arfa etc its time to make some tough decisions.
I would suggest you to keep only those discounted player ( who don't play this week) who you have at minimum half their price.For e.g incase you have Cisse at lesser than 13, you could hold on to him and hope he returns the points in the double game week in Week 36. Similiarly Ben Arfa could be held on to incase you have him at less than 7.
Marginal discounts should be ignored this week all 6 fixtures look tempting.
Let's have a look at all the fixtures :
Sunderland vs Wolves
West Brom vs QPR
Norwich vs Man City
Man Utd vs Aston Villa
Arsenal vs Wigan
Swansea vs Blackburn
Rooney/Rvp/Aguero : Its now the front men who need to be invested in as this being the business end of the season. No rotation risk what so ever and personal milestones of each of them will make them give it all in these last 5 games.
( Prefer Rvp >Aguero > Rooney )
Odemwingie : His price is ideal and matchup is tempting to get him in.I would expect him to put in a strong performance at home against Paul Robinson.
Sincliar : Prefer him to Graham as he is more active in offense.This game is setup for a good show by Swansea who have played some great football this year.QPR concede goals and their defense has been poor.
Tevez : I would expect Tevez and Dzeko to share playing time whereas Aguero to enjoy majority of time. No doubt that Tevez is a tempting option to have in your forward lineup but I would consider it only at a cheap price (less than 7) as he won't be playing the entire game.
Rest options could include Yakubu > Welbeck
Sessegnon : Has to be the pick of the midfielders this week as the matchup is great,no rotation risk and playing a more forward role.Its Wolves and that is an 'all in' time to get to Sunderland players who will be eager to get the job done after the poor game against Everton.
Sigurdsson : Pick of the Swansea midfielders and I expect all of you to already have him in your teams.
Nani : The man is back for the run in and he will be playing all of the remaining games for United even if they win the league way before.Valencia has done all the hard work uptill now and will be given lesser time as the job is completed.I would expect Young and Valencia to share the playing time.
Walcott : Pick of Arsenal midfielders but incase he is too expensive for you budget Rosicky is the pick.He seems to be playing more forward,just behind Rvp.
Andrews : With Brunt being an injury doubt,Andrews will be a good option,He is cheap at below 6.
Enabler : Ox, Ramsey.
Other options include : Larsson > Valencia > Young > Arteta
Evans : Pick of the Manchester United defenders and its been rewarding for the last few weeks now.
Vermaelen : Been very inconsistent this season but you just can't ignore him against Wigan at home.
Djourou / Santos : Both cheap options and should start.
Williams/Taylor : The bad run needs to stop and Swansea need their back 4 to do what they have done best this season at home, keep a clean sheet.
Enabler: Lichaj, Baker
Vorm : Swansea play bottom 3 sides in 3 of their next 5 games.Its a great run to have Vorm as his price is affordable.
Mignolet : Even though Sunderland struggled against Everton,Its their home form which is more solid and with Wolves playing,I do expect him to be a safe pick.
Scznezsy : Good matchup and will need to make some saves against a fighting Wigan side.Could turn out to be productive.
I won't suggest a cheap keeper as they seem to struggle to give anything positive.
