Curran is the one to come out - he's useful if it's going around corners but you've got Woakes and Anderson for that, at a higher level - he might be useful in rotation. Archer is someone I would want in but a more practical view is that you look at the conditions and play your best combination for those. If it's flat, I'd consider dropping Broad or Woakes for Archer. If it's seaming around (or you're in Birmingham or Lord's given his record there) you might well want Woakes. 5 Tests in 6 weeks will be difficult on some of the fast bowlers and having Curran and Archer to spell players could be useful.

For what it's worth, I would pick:

Roy
Burns (on a short leash but for whom? Unsure)
Denly
Root
Bairstow
Stokes
Buttler
Woakes/Archer
Leach
Broad/Archer
Anderson
