32 Flags 2015-16 EPL Fantasy Preview – Week 7

During every week of the English Premier League, we will provide an EPL fantasy preview the day before the start of the games as well as a recap the day after. Feel free to use this as a guide to make those last minute roster moves or to avoid who we pick as you make your team.

Week 7 is here. Getting closer and closer to the quarter mark of the season, it’s getting tougher and tougher to move through the table but it’s not impossible. We have the standings for the 32 Flags league here as well as the recap from last week. Without further ado, here’s who we are playing this weekend.

Jeff had to do some house cleaning after Stones and Henderson are down with injuries. Not to mention Christian Benteke but that would bring a tough point drop.
