Fantasy Premier League Week 10

I’m back! Due to my somewhat heavy workload (MLS playoffs and all–I can guarantee it will be the first time, no more midweek MLS games) I can’t make it quite as long as before. No Super-Bargains. But I’ll try to mention Diego Costa less, so you’ve got that going for you.

Oh, and on Diego Costa: he’s still listed as questionable. Yeah, he didn’t play vs. United, but I still insist to keep him around. If you transfer him out and then bring him back in, that’s two transfers you’re burning that I don’t think you have to. If you transfer him out and don’t transfer him back in, then you’ll feel bad if he goes on a scoring tear. If you don’t have him? This sounds crazy, but consider getting him if you don’t need to use a transfer on other players. Why? Because his price is low. Everyone’s dropping him. Once he’s healthy, and there’s a feeding frenzy, his price will rise like crazy. And then if he ends up not playing well, you can sell him quickly for a profit. Yes, it also burns two transfers, but it gives you flexibility in the added budget.

Okay, enough of Diego Costa! Here are my six suggested fantasy players for the tenth week of the Fantasy English Premier League:

Russell Westbrook Out Indefinitely - Broken Hand

Russell Westbrook broke his hand last night in the Oklahoma City Thunder vs Los Angeles Clippers game.  OKC entered the night with Kevin Durant, Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb and Anthony Morrow in street clothes.  Westbrook played just 9 minutes, scored 2 points, before walking himself straight to the locker room, but not before stopping to chat with a fan:

The Thunder are off to an 0-2 start, averaging just 89 points per game, and Sebastian Telfair will run the offense on Saturday, when they host the Denver Nuggets. Telfair played 38 minutes last night and scored 11 points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3pt, 6-8 FT) and picked up 7 assists. Perry Jones scored a career high 32 points for OKC, on 10-17 shooting, including three 3s, and knocked down 9 of his 11 attempts from the charity stripe. Serge Ibaka was good for 17 points and 9 boards.

Giovani Bernard Out vs Jaguars?

According to the Cincinnati Bengals website, Giovani Bernard will not suit up for the Bengals on Sunday when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars:

...running back Giovani Bernard was nowhere to be seen for the second straight day. That would indicate Bernard is going to miss the first game of his two-year NFL career 1 p.m. Sunday against the Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium. -

With A.J. Green already a question mark, Andy Dalton will rely heavily on Mohamed Sanu and Jeremy Hill will be the Bengals feature back.  On 50 attempts, Hill is averaging just 3.9 yards per carry.  Over his first 3 NFL games, Hill picked up 132 yards on 26 carries (5.07 YPC). Since week 3, 2.6 YPC over 24 carries.

The Jaguars allowed 115 yards per game on the ground and 7 TDs to running backs, 2 were caught for scores.  Jacksonville has limited Bishop Sankey, Ben Tate and Lamar Miller to just 58 yards per game over the last 3 weeks and Jackie Battle is the only RB to score a TD against them since Ahmad Bradshaw caught a pass from Andrew Luck in the endzone in Week 3.

This is a huge blow to fantasy football owners as Matt Forte and Eddie Lacy are on BYE this week, along with Reggie Bush, Joique Bell, Theo Riddick, Sankey, Anthony Dixon, Bryce Brown and Steven Jackson.
