So what will owners with shares of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea (and others) do?
Here are some ideas:
Fantasy Premier League, Week 8 captain choices, transfer adds
Alexander Isak, Newcastle vs Bournemouth, £7.0
Do you believe in the Eddie Howe project at St. James’ Park and its record purchase? Or do you think Bournemouth cannot be that different under Gary O’Neil than it was while getting thrashed by Liverpool, Arsenal, and Man City? Why not both?
Harry Kane, Tottenham vs Leicester, £11.4
Kane loves scoring against the Foxes. He’s only been kept off the scoreboard (goal or assist) once in his last six versus Leicester, tallying up six goals and two assists in that span and even had a goal and an assist on loan to Millwall in 2012.
Phil Foden, Man City vs Wolves, £8.0
Only played 32 minutes at midweek and looked bright in helping along the Man City comeback. Wolves can defend but City should go into the break in style.
Aleksadanar Mitrovic, Nottingham Forest vs Fulham, £6.9
Forest is hemorrhaging chances more than anyone else in the league through six weeks and Mitrovic has six goals and has only failed to score in one contest (a 0-0 draw at Wolves).
