August manager of the month – Hornets – 210 points

Picking up the first prize money of the season are league newcomers, Hornets. And they made damn sure they were going to get it, utilising their bench boost wildcard for extra points security. As it turns out, they really didn’t have to play it. They sit 23 points ahead at the top of the table. Their bench only scored them an added 11 points. The 57 points they had already racked up was a more than respectable score for the week. Lets hope they don’t rue that decision in later months.

Manager of the week – Cookster FC – 70 points

Not playing the bench boost, and still banging in a healthy 70 point score were Cooksters. They were one of the few not to fall foul to another lame week by Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku’s penalty miss – mainly because they don’t have either of them. Many millions of us captained Kane, convinced that this was the week he’d get his goals – it didn’t happen. There is an August curse apparently. Cooksters primarily benefited from Chelsea’s performance against Everton, with Pedro, Willian and Alvaro Morata, whose made a promising start to his FPL career, picking up a combined 21 points. Seems the rest of us ditched Chelsea at the first sign of wavering (the first game) – obviously way too early.

Player of the week – Ciaran Clark – 15 points

Double Newcastle defender in player of the week alert. This either shows that it’s not all bad at St James’ and they’ve got a team full of cheap fantasy assets with relatively good prospects against the right team. Or that West Ham are total shit.

Bargain of the week – Chancel Mbemba – 9 points

The only regular starting £4 million player. Played well and could even nail down a place. The international break has probably come at the wrong time.

Twat of the week – Miguel Britos – -2 points

Spare a thought (again) for Shoelace Untied, propping up the table. Three weeks in and three sendings off. Britos’s tackle and subsequent protestations of innocence deserve fantasy points in my opinion. At least 10.

Goal of the week – Charlie Daniels.

Atletico Chappers score 77 points this week to claim the manager of the week prize. They were 18th only a fortnight ago, but have now risen to 5th, which goes to show that with a couple of good scores under your belt there are still opportunities to climb this league. Chappers sit at the top of that congested middle order which sees just 37 points separate 19 places. Chappers brought in Sergio Aguero in gameweek 20 to replace Romelu Lukaku, which was a brave move, given Lukaku’s form up until that point. Aguero has since scored 26 points to Lukaku’s nine. An inspired transfer.

On Sunday evening we had new leaders. Golden Boys have had a poor month, sitting only 33rd in the January table. After the Sunday games both Your Ad Here and FC Caligula had overtaken them at the top of the table. Not for the first time this season Ashley Williams added vital points to Golden Boys’ score to reclaim their place at the summit. Williams’ goal, clean sheet and bonuses totalled 15 points. Williams scored three consecutive 9 point scores in December with similar effect. The gap at the top was 27 points last week. It’s now down to nine. Could it be time for the Golden Boys to finally play a wildcard?

It was another week in which the old reliables of the first half of the season failed to deliver. Best epitomised by Riyad Mahrez, who missed his second penalty of the season. It’s five weeks of nothingness now from the Algerian. But whereas Leicester are still maintaining a title challenge of sorts, Watford’s bubble may have burst. And with it the scoring run of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo. We appear to be in the middle of a changing of the guard as far as form players are concerned. And it’s happened pretty much as the first half of the season has finished and the second half has started. Only Mesut Ozil, of those previous big hitters, occupies a place on the first page of form players. Maybe we’ll all be playing those wildcards a lot sooner than we thought.

 

Player of the week – Charlie Daniels – 18 points. Bournemouth’s full backs are definitely worth a look at the moment.

Bargain of the week – Matt Targett – 11 points. From nowhere. Two consecutive double figure scores. And for £3.7 million.

Donkey of the week – Scott Dann – 0 points. Another bubble burst?

Goal of the week – Ayoze Perez.
