#FlyBuy - GW14

It's a quick turnaround this week so let's get down to business. It wasn't a great return for last week's pick, Aaron Ramsey, who only managed to provide a 3 point return. However, a good run for Arsenal in the next few week's means that I think he will still come good. Remember, FlyBuy is selected on the basis of a 5 week timeframe, not just a one GW "fire and forget".

Obviously his fellow Arsenal compatriot must have read my GW13 article here and been suitably embarrassed that he was letting the side down. He rectified this immediately by laying on the assist for Danny Welbeck's goal, collecting 2 Bonus Pts in the process. Cheers Santi!

Although their 5 week window is at an end, so I don't provide stats for them below, it is interesting to note that former picks Bony and Yaya are continuing to rack up the points, albeit a little later than I predicted.

So onto this week's pick, and with GW14 starting tomorrow evening, people are furiously tinkering. There's no real need for this unless you are trying to beat any price rises/falls. Remember the deadline is not until 19:30 on Tues, and teamsheets start to come in about 45 minutes before that. So if you can afford to wait, then wait.

I'm going for a guy with a semi-favourable run of fixtures (AVL/tot/STO/mcy/SOU) who plays in a midfield that has seen some outstanding points returns this past few weeks from his team mates. I just figure it's his turn to get in on the action, starting with the home game against Aston Villa on Tues.

With Yannick Bolasie picking up a double point haul in GW12, with Joe Ledley grabbing 8 points in the same week, and Mile Jedinak racking up 10 points in GW13, I figure its the turn of Jason Puncheon to get a piece of the pie.

He hasn't scored since GW3 or assisted since GW5, but I just think he could be about to come good. He can provide a decent cross, and is normally always involved in the last third, so it could be assists or it could be goals. Either way, he is my pick for FlyBuy for GW13-17.
