Happy Christmas everyone! Hopefully you’ve all got your presents, beer and food bought and are now ready to get down to the really important part of Christmas…..4 waiver deadlines between now and New Years Eve.
The waiver/ (free agency opening) deadlines are:
Thursday 21st at 18.45
Christmas Day 11.30am (second glass of Prosecco and miniature heroes while streaming)
Friday 29th at 14.00
New Years Eve at 20.30 (double gameweek)
These four game weeks could be a minefield for rotation but also a goldmine for unexpected returns from unlikely sources. So don’t be afraid to go for some wild picks and remember those deadlines to steal a march on your rivals who are too busy spending quality time with family!
Week 19 picks:
Defender: Eliaquim Mangala, Man City (BOU H)
Mangala looked to be on his way out of the club and as a result should be available to most of you. City look utterly dominant and the visit of Bournemouth is unlikely to change that.
Midfielder: José Izquierdo, Brighton (Watford H) An attempt to guess at some of Hughton’s rotation here. Izquierdo didn’t start the last game so could start this week. Has scored some decent points when starting and is facing a Watford side in freefall. Big Sams Silva voodoo doll must be working.
Forward: Diafra Sakho / Andy Carroll, West Ham (Newcastle H) This is a gamble and should only be taken if you are struggling for a third forward. As it’s Christmas I hope you’ll allow me the luxury of covering myself with 2 picks. Wait for Moyes press conference for any clues. Sakho is yet to start this season but Lanzini’s suspension and injury doubts over Marko Arnautovic could lead to a start for Sakho or Carroll against a Newcastle team who have lost 8 of 9.
