Panza Grande pick up their first award of the season, scoring 72 points and winning manager of the week. There were some high and healthy scores in the league this week posting higher than the average of 51.

It was a week in which many of the form players didn’t disappoint. Angel Di Maria’s ownership is increasing in the hundreds of thousands every week, and understandably so. His 13 point score is his third in double figures, and his third in which he’s assisted and scored. He’s yet to bag the highest weekly score, but it’s probably only a matter of time. Gylfi Sigurdsson has had a few fallow weeks, but also managed his third double figure score, achieving his fifth and sixth assists of the season. That’s one behind Cesc Fabregas in the assists table. And as usual that assist helped Diego Costa to his obligatory goal.

Finally arriving at the point scoring party, and long overdue, are Eden Hazard and Yaya Toure. Toure in particular has been disappointing so far this season, managing to score no higher than three points – and that was only once and in the first game of the season. His first goal and first bonus marks will have pleased any managers who’d persevered with him. He’s been so out of favour in fantasy world that his ownership has dropped to just 8.2% and his value by £0.3 million. It may take a few more weeks of similar scores to turn managers back on to the prospect of buying him again, although £10.7million still seems a little overpriced.

The trend among the strikers continues. But for Costa and Aguero, the best striking options in the game remain in the £5-6 million bracket. The five best of the week all landed in that price range. Firstly, Sunderland’s Steven Fletcher and Connor Wickham. Sunderland’s first victory came courtesy of two goals from Fletcher and one from Wickham. Steven Naismith bagged his fourth of the season in the week his value fell back to £5.2 million from a high of £5.6 million a fortnight ago. Diafra Sakho has scored in three successive games now for West Ham. He’s been under the radar somewhat, but will probably see his value increase now he’s risen into the top 10 striker standings. And Papiss Cisse bagged his second brace of the season, which will be a welcome to relief to long suffering Newcastle fans. Maybe the Senegalese can recapture the form he had when he first joined the club.

 

Player of the week – Steven Fletcher – 15 points. Would be such a good FPL option if he could steer clear of injury.

Bargain of the week – Riyad Mahrez – 13 points. Another player just coming to life this week.

Donkey of the week – Nedum Onuoha – -1 points. A little bit unlucky, but it was only a matter of time before we got a QPR donkey

Goal of the week – Ross Wallace. Not up to the standard of last week, but a nice free kick all the same.
