*Your Ad Here* became the fourth team to win their second weekly award amassing 77 points and maintaining their position in the top five. Upper Bullens and RayCrawfordsCrackers sandwich *YAH* on the leaderboard in fourth and sixth respectively posting totals of 75. RayCrawfordsCrackers were the biggest movers jumping seven places from thirteenth into a tightly packed lower half of the top 10. Only five points separate 10th and 6th. After Saturday’s games Neil Madrid had leapt further up the league into fourth, but were pegged back by the those three 70+ scorers and Sportingabiggerwig and Ciderheads who all scored heavily following the Sunday matches. *Your Ad Here* had four players playing in Sunday’s games, and they added 43 points to their total, outscoring the seven players who took to the field for them on Saturday. Upper Bullens had similar success with 37 points coming from Sundays games. The Crackers and Sporting had 28 points contributed from the final four games of the weekend.

Uriah’s still lead the way, but the gap at the top has now been cut to 15 points. They’re possibly suffering from a slight slowing down in the scoring of Southampton’s attackers, and a lack of either Sanchez and/or Aguero. One thing Uriah’s don’t have to worry about this season (so far) is their anti-Liverpool stance. No Liverpool player is currently anywhere near the top of the form tables.

Which leads us on to the players that are. Newcastle! It’s a clean sweep of player awards this week following their win at West Brom. Daryl Janmaat moves into the top 10 defenders with a 15 point haul, closely followed by our bargain of the week, Fabricio Coloccini, on 14 points. Ayoze Perez scored the goal of the weekend. Perez is the newest in a line of cheapo strikers outscoring the elite. He falls into the £4-5 million bracket too – for now. Three goals in three games from about six touches and as many bonus marks.

Charlie Austin shouldn’t go unmentioned. Other than Sergio Aguero, who appears to be keeping City afloat at the moment, Austin is the form striker in the league. He had the ball in the net three times on Saturday night against the Champions. Sadly, only one of them counted. That goal – his sixth of the season – his fourth in three games – helped QPR to a well deserved draw. Those labouring with off the boil strikers like Leonardo Ulloa and Steven Naismith or getting twicthy with a two game blank from Diafra Sakho and Saido Berahino might want to give Austin a punt.

Which other City players would you have in your squad at the moment? It is just Aguero. City’s form might be enough to tempt you away from the league’s top scorer, but it seems as long as he’s in the team, City (and your Bucketeers) have a chance. He’s drawn a blank in only three of their 11 league games. Similarly, and perhaps more impressive is Leighton Baines’ scoring power. Baines sits second behind Aguero and Sanchez in the overall points standings. It’s unusual for a defender to place above so many strikers and midfielders. Baines has either scored, assisted, kept a clean sheet or bonused in eight of the 11 games. He’s certainly justifying his price tag, unlike virtually every other elite defender.

We’ve got a mid month interval. Two weeks of bumming around not being bothered by internationals hoping Angel Di Maria gets injured so you can move him out and replace him with Alexis Sanchez safe in the knowledge you’re not going to lose out.

Player of the week – Daryl Janmaat – 15 points. Both assists and three bonus marks.

Bargain of the week – Fabricio Coloccini – 14 points. A goal and two of the bonus marks

Donkey of the week – Kyle Naughton – -2 points. Our first double donkey.

Goal of the week – Ayoze Perez. A cheeky flick and the other bonus mark.
