Gameweek 27 Start and Sit

Whether you’re an obsessed EPL fan like our Fantrax HQ team, or a casual player new to the world of Fantasy EPL, you know to start your attacking players against relegation-threatened sides. We’re not going to waste your time dealing with the obvious! The goal of this article is to delve into notable players across each Fantrax position and let you know if you should be starting or sitting those players.

Our format is as follows: We will be choosing 2 different teams. One will be our starts of the week, made up of non-obvious, low-rostered players. The other will be our sits of the week, made up of highly rostered, normally started players. We will keep track of how each team performs in next week’s article for full transparency.

Now let’s see the teams!

Double and blank means we have a wild one on our hands this weekend. Only Burnley double, so it is no surprise to see a lot of Dyche’s boys in the start XI and Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea blank, so there will definitely be some interesting lineups this week. The other 2 teams heavily featured on our Start XI are Southampton and Newcastle. Both of these teams are looking to build on some recent form to string together a couple of good games as they look ahead into an easy fixture list. The Strike force of Broja and Joelinton is still criminally under rostered, so both of them are definitely worth a pickup even in 8-10 team leagues for their upcoming runs.

The theme with our sits of the week is pretty similar again, Everton, West Ham, and Aston Villa feature heavily as all three teams have been in awful form and face difficult opposition. Most of these players mentioned are definitely considered droppable by more unforgiving managers and as always, quite a few “drop a player in the Sit XI for a player in the Start XI” type pickups are possible, and with the possible exception of DCL, We would probably do most of those add/drops.
