Slovak Skrtel Damages Knee Ligaments: Let’s go Rafa Rotation Shopping
Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel had cemented a position for himself at centre back with a series of solid performances this season, but now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after injuring ligaments in his right knee.
Bad news for Liverpool, but great news for fantasy premier league managers. Liverpool defenders, long avoided because of Rafa’s rotation policy
are now great bargain buys.
Managers who own Arsenal’s Gallas, Clichy, Sagna, or Toure would be crazy not to swap out one of those four high-priced (6.5M) options for Daniel Agger (5.9M)
. Sami Hyypia (5.3M) could steal a few of the Dane’s starts at the back, but Agger will clearly be first choice to replace Skrtel.
Agger will differentiate fantasy managers from their competitors (who are more likely to own Glen Johnson, Vincent Kompany, or even Verdan Corluka in this price range) and will bring solid returns.
Do you Agger-ee?
