ALERT - Monitor your volume on these slates. I’m going much lower than a usual Saturday slate.

No English Premier League this weekend so we are going to dive into the FRIDAY Two Game CLASSIC mode slate and also discuss for the first time the One Game SHOWDOWN mode for the USA v. BRAZIL game Friday evening. Let’s go!

First, the English Premier League is on an international break this weekend. There are no EPL games, but there are international games. I’ll be doing an article and cheat sheets for those. Most, if not all, of these games are friendlies so monitor your volume when playing. Some players will only play a half. Some will be subbed off early. Int’l friendlies are the preseason NFL of the soccer world.

Let’s look at this past weekend...

 Soccer Sunday Funday - 9/2

Both the big boys go on the road this Sunday for what should be big tests. Of the 2, Tottenhem are certainly playing the better soccer but face the tougher opponent. Watford have had a bit of a surprising start to the season: 3 wins from 3 games with a +5 goal difference.

Welcome back for another weekend of EPL madness. A huge slate with Manchester City bringing the late game hammer, which will be interesting. I posted a Weekend Review for the first time, looking at last week’s slate. If you haven’t read it yet, give it a click.

I mentioned City are the late game. Let’s be smart about how many players we decide to use from that game and where we place them in our roster. As a reminder, we look at the biggest favorite (City) and the highest total (City/NEW) and then figure out how many players to play.

If only rostering one, make sure they are in the UTIL spot for roster flexibility. I would likely recommend at least two, if not, three players from this game, but as always, it depends on pricing and what you can do with your remaining salary. Let’s get into it.

Hey subs. I’m certainly not going to do this every single week because frankly, most weeks, it’s not worth your time or mine, but I did want to point a couple of key indicators to look out for in different contests. We’ll focus on this weekend’s EPL slates. We’ll talk about the good and the bad and more importantly, the why.

There are a ton of question marks on this Sunday slate and that is when we make our money.   We want there to be less obvious plays. We need there to be skill involved.
