Fantasy Premier League Transfers 2013: Players to Get in Your Week 14 Lineup

A number of English Premier League players proved in Matchday 13 that they are worth an add for your fantasy team.

Saturday's action did not feature too many surprises from a club perspective. In most cases, favorites like Arsenal and Everton came through with convincing victories. Aston Villa arguably had the most disappointing performance with a draw against Sunderland. 

However, each match showcased a few individual stars who are clearly worthy of a place on fantasy teams. Based on what they showed in their latest match, they are certainly solid transfers going forward.

Moussa Sissoko, Newcastle United (6.1)

Newcastle have been red-hot over the past month, and Moussa Sissoko has been a big part of the success. The club has won four matches in a row over some good opponents, and the most recent was thanks to a goal by the midfielder in the 57th minute.

Although this was his first score of the EPL season, he is always involved in the action and is certain to contribute more on the offensive end going forward. Even if he does not, he still plays virtually every match and helps his side keep matches low-scoring.

This makes him one of the most consistent options in the EPL as someone who will get your fantasy team points every single week for a relatively cheap price.

When selecting a goalkeeper, you can easily grab one of the top players from an elite club, like Petr Cech or Wojciech Szczesny. However, a great way to save some budget is to grab a second-tier player that you can count on.

Jussi Jaaskelainen fits the second category as the 38-year-old veteran for West Ham United. While he has had some bad performances, he also earned his seventh clean sheet of the year against Fulham. Of course, a lot of this was due to an excellent defense that barely allowed any opposing chances, but it all counts the same for your fantasy team. 

When West Ham face poor offensive opponents, like Crystal Palace in Week 14, Jaaskelainen represents a good, cheap option for your team.

 

Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal (8.4)

While he has already been one of the most pleasant surprises of the EPL season, Aaron Ramsey had slow down a bit offensively in recent weeks. After dominating all competitions in September, he only had a handful of goals since the start of October and only one assist in November.

This certainly would be enough for fantasy owners to question whether he is worth his lofty price tag.

However, his performance against Cardiff City proved that he should still be active on almost every fantasy team. He scored two goals in the win over his former club and could have had a few more with some quality shots.

Arsenal's offense is becoming one of the most efficient in the league with Mesut Ozil creating opportunities for everyone. This gives Ramsey a chance to score every single time he steps on the pitch.

Even with a high value, the midfielder is worth a start in every league.
