Serie A Fantasy Picks – Round 14


Wojciech Szczesny: the Polish goalkeeper has been a major contributor in two of the last three Juventus wins. They have the best scoring defense in the League, which usually tightens up in the more difficult matches, and will square off against a team that has failed to score more than once in their past seven fixtures.

Francesco Acerbi: Chievo are showing signs of improvements, but they have been dismal offensively so far, netting just ten total goals and finding the target only in three of their seven home games.

Milan Skriniar: Inter lead the league in clean sheets and their back-line could be able to take advantage of the litany of injuries suffered by Roma’s offensive players, which make them far less intimidating.

Franck Kessie: the Ivorian powerhouse is enjoying a nice season contributing to both phases and could be helped by the fact that Parma have not been super effective on the road, where they have folded in half of the matches. With Gonzalo Higuain suspended, he should be the penalty taker this week.

Rodrigo De Paul: he is having a terrific season that is being overshadowed by his team’s problems. Sassuolo are an above average team, but they tend to concede and to be involved in high-scoring matches.

Joao Pedro: he will be asked to sustain a heavier offensive load with Lucas Castro out and Leonardo Pavoletti 50-50 to play because of a minor injury. Frosinone have the second-worst defense in Serie A.

Jasmin Kurtic: SPAL certainly need a boost and he showed well in his first start after the elbow fracture, even though it was obviously a tough game versus Juventus. His shooting prowess will come in handy in a key clash with Empoli, which have allowed at least one goal in their six games. Mirco Antenucci is not a bad pick either as far as the attack goes.

Iago Falque: Torino have yet to find the right consistency and have been flat especially at home, however they get a date with Genoa this week, which have given up 18 goal in away matches, the worst clip in the League.

Fabio Quagliarella: the striker is the right groove with three goals in his last three appearances and Sampdoria have a favorable tilt coming up against Bologna at home.

Khouma Babacar: he is one of those players who perform well when they have some continuity in his playing time and the absence of Kevin-Prince Boateng will allow it. He broke the ice after a couple of months and could keep it going this week against Udinese.

Ciro Immobile: even though Chievo stymied Napoli, Lazio usually do not drop the ball against the relegation strugglers and their leading scorer feasts in these instances.
