Thanks to Will for previewing the top of the table. It's probably a good thing I didn't have to write about Burnley. I have WAY too many good things to say about that Burnley side. What a machine!
Key Player to Watch: Robin van Persie. He's coming off of a strong World Cup and is now playing under his Dutch coach. I would be shocked if he scored less than 20 this season.
Good Bet: Juan Mata. He's pretty awesome. (That, my friends, is expert analysis. That's why I get paid the big bucks.)
Risky: Wayne Rooney. Will Rooney fit in van Gaal's system? Time will tell.
De-Fense! (Clap Clap): Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling are both good defenders who will play a key role in United's attempt to get back to the Champions League and top of the EPL.
In Goal: Mr. Jekyll and Hyde himself: David de Gea. You just never know what you are going to get. I would pick 5-6 goalkeepers before him.
Key Player to Watch: Moussa Sissoko. The Frenchman struggled at times last year, scoring only three goals in 35 appearances. I expect a stronger season out of him.
DON'T TOUCH WITH A 10-FOOT POLE: Steven Taylor. Trust me. (Or don't. I don't really care.)
Hey, I'm Still Alive!: Michael Williamson. Seriously, he is!
In Goal: Tim Krul. Solid. He also has a name very close to my good friend (and Fake Teams EPL Fantasy League participant) Tim Crowell. So, he's got that for him.
Key Player to Watch: Loïc Remy. He can score and...well, I'm just bitter that QPR is in the EPL and Fulham isn't. I dislike QPR very much.
Take Him If You Like Being Disappointed: Bobby Zamora. What a lazy player. (Okay, I am VERY bitter about QPR being in the top flight.)
Now Applying for Senior Citizen Discount: Rio Ferdinand.
Another Good Bet: Adel Taarabt. I like him. I really do.
In Goal: Robert Green, Clint Dempsey's personal assistant. He has appeared in 16 matches and let up zero goals. Not bad, Mr. Green.
