Manager of the week – Sean Whyton – Rip Roaring Reds – 72 points

A significant move of seven places up the league into the top five for the Reds. There have been may teams threatening to knock the Hornets off the top with bursts into the top 10 in recent weeks but none have succeeded. They maintain their 20-ish point lead as they have done for the last 6 gameweeks. Reds’ success came from spying Christian Eriksen’s slightly left field potential as a captain choice. As Harry Kane had another week off the Spurs midfielder picked up the big points from their paltry 1-0 win over Bournemouth.

Player of the week – Raheem Sterling – 15 points

Had to be a City player didn’t it? Sterling’s not even a guaranteed starter and still has more goals than Everton. It’s reached a stage where you don’t even necessarily have to worry if a City player starts on the bench. He’ll either come on and score or start next week and score.

Bargain of the week – Tammy Abraham – 13 points

A favoured cheap pick that’s starting to find his feet. The problem is whether you pick him week in week out or not. Presumably if he’s your third striker you’ve heavily invested in your midfield and they probably look better bets for consistent scoring.

Twat of the week – Andy Carroll – -2 points

Two elbows in 10 minutes is much worse than seven conceded in 90. Silly boy.

Goal of the week – Fernandinho, Take your pick of any of the City 7.

Manager of the month – Dean Cripps – Kompany & Co – 289 points

The Vinegar Pissers lead the way going into the weekend but it’s Kompany & Co that take the prize. They also switched places – 3rd and 4th – in the overall league. Kompany’s key player was Nacho Monreal. The Arsenal defender added 15 points to their score. And you probably hadn’t noticed, but that’s four shut-outs on the spin now from Wenger’s team.

Manager of the week – Stu Smith – FTM – 91 points

FTM were probably hoping for a few goals from Harry Kane, a clean sheet from Phil Jones, another dominant Man City display and maybe a piece of magic from Philippe Coutinho to amass a healthy score this week. They got all those things, but the 16 ridiculous points picked up by Marouanne Fellaini probably wasn’t expected, and it’s what pushed them to the top of the weekly charts just ahead of Neil Madrid, who gave us the first glimpse of the potential power of the fee hit.

Player of the week – Marouane Fellaini – 16 points.

This will never happen again. Not even Marouane Fellaini has Marouane Fellaini in his fantasy team.

Bargain of the week – Stephen Ward – 12 points

Second in the bonus charts for defenders and third in the bonus charts overall, Ward and the Burnley back line look the best of the cheap options in that area of the park at the moment.

Twat of the week – Tommy Smith – 0 points

It’s hard to believe that still no Palace players have landed at the bottom of the weekly charts given the amount of goals they’re shipping. Luckily for them there’s always someone slightly more expensive shipping as many goals each week. Palace players are so uninvolved they’re not even getting sent off.

Goal of the week – Philippe Coutinho.

Manager of the week – Mrs Mcgoo – Laura Barrett – 90 points

Finishing totals in the 70s and 80s were commonplace this week with all but one of the double figure scorers coming from the ‘big 6’ sides. Mcgoo were the only team to creep into the 90s with a front three of Morata, Aguero and Lukaku ably backed up by a strong Huddersfield defensive presence. Mcgoo went for the Kane out/Aguero in transfer which kind of worked…but didn’t. Harry Kane shouldn’t be the bane of fantasy managers lives, but his insistence on scoring two or three every two or three weeks is proving to be, what’s technically known as, a ballache.

Player of the week – Alvaro Morata – 17 points

This hat trick tales him into second place overall in the player standings. It should be an exciting four, or maybe even five way race for the golden boot. Fitting three of them into your team seems to be an essential at the moment.

Bargain of the week – Oumar Niasse – 11 points

Probably seen as a last throw of the dice by his manager and came up with more for Everton in 35 minutes than most of the rest of the team had managed in six games. I doubt even the most die hard of fans had him anywhere near their fantasy team. Only 0.9% of players worldwide had accidentally picked him. He might be on from the start in their next match.

Twat of the week – Serge Aurier – -2 points

A sending off that almost cost his team three points. Spurs seem to be alternating the full backs a lot. This at least puts a stop to that for a week.

Goal of the week – Fabian Delph.

There aren’t many City players left who haven’t scored.

Manager of the week – Golden Boys – Stephanie Cripps – 92 points

A massive week for the Cripps family as both representative teams broke the 90 point barrier. Our first teams to do so this season. Golden Boys are the team of the week, captaining Aguero (of course), complimented by a full house of clean sheets. Kompany and Co’s 90 point haul included a 57 point contribution from Manchester City players.

Player of the week – Sergio Aguero – 20 points.
I’m not sure if Sergio picked up a 20 point score last season. He was more likely to be sent off than get a hat trick. And that warned a lot of people off him. As well As the widely held thought that Pep preferred Gabriel Jesus. Well, both are starting and both are scoring. And assisting. Each other. Uh oh!

Bargain of the week – Lukasz Fabianski – 11 points

A hard fought 0-0 for Swansea. Which was totally unexpected given that roughly a third of FPL players put the armband on Harry Kane. Kane out.

Twat of the week – Jose Holebas – -2 points

The more Watford’s bright start to the season crumbled over the course of their game with City, the more lumps Holebas felt obliged to kick out of the City attackers.

Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero (3rd goal)

Honourable mention for Antonio Valencia, but this was Maradona-esque

Manager of the week – We Are Ayling – Paul Murray – 69 points

They were ailing. But not so much anymore, climbing six places and to within easy reach of mid table. I dare say there were some among us who’d grown tired of Harry Kane. A price drop reflected that. Yet, August is over. Ayling captained him and reaped the benefits of his two goal haul. Leroy Sane, in and out of the Man City team, added an unexpected 13 points with two sublime goals.

Player of the week – Pascal Gross – 18 points.

Brighton’s season is finally underway. Their first win largely down to their German attacking midfielder who could be a good bet for a regularly picked, semi-consistent, lower to mid-priced goal threat. But for games against Arsenal and Everton, six of the Seagulls next eight fixtures have potential for wins and points.

Bargain of the week – Jamal Lascelles – 15 points

Something’s up. A second successive week with a Newcastle defender among the highest scorers. Matching Ciaran Clark’s performance from the last gameweek, Lascelles scored, kept a clean sheet and bagged top bonus marks.

Twat of the week – Sadio Mane – -2 points

This three game ban should start a mad transfer scramble. Whilst possibly allowing a way back into the Liverpool team for Philippe Coutinho.

Goal of the week – Leroy Sane.
