Easily one of the shittest weeks in FPL history. The majority of us scored under the worldwide average of 35, and just under half of us didn’t even get above 30 points. And yet, there were points to be had. There were 34 goals scored – well over the gameweek average. It was who scored that was the problem.
Of the six players that started the gameweek with over 100 points, only Mahrez and Barkley scored any more than their appearance points – and that was the single point they get for a clean sheet as a midfielder. Of the most popular players – those with over a 20% ownership – only Bacary Sagna and Marko Arnautovic contributed anything extra.
And – there were five players scoring two or more goals this week. Olivier Giroud and Wayne Rooney offered the most likely path to a double figure score – with 14.9% and 8.5% ownership respectively. Jermain Defoe’s hat trick was enjoyed by only 2.5% of managers, with even less benefiting from Enner Valencia and Roberto Firmino’s braces.
Go Buffoons Go!!! were the only team to get above 50 points and did so thanks to Giroud’s 13 points and Arnautovic’s five – doubled to ten as captain. Andre Ayew contributed a double figure score also – his first since mid November. Making the most ground at the top of the tree were Greensmeansbusiness and Walking With Memphis. Aaron Ramsey and Bacary Sagna were the main contributors to Greens’ score. It could have been so much better had they picked Defoe instead of Chris Smalling. The 17 extra points would have seen them climb another place in the table and into a prize money position. WWM also had Giroud. They got another 12 points from their City contingent – six from Joe Hart for his clean sheet and another six from their skipper, Yaya Toure.
It was a more memorable week for some cracking 20-30 yard screamers. Honourable mentions to Enner Valencia, Dimitri Payet (he’s back), Wayne Rooney, Jonny Howson and Joselu.
Player of the week – Jermain Defoe – 17 points. Five goals in two games.
Bargain of the week – Joleon Lescott – 15 points. Villa won!!!!!!!!!!
Donkey of the week – Kyle Naughton – -4 points. Wasn’t a sending off and will probably be rescinded. Doesn’t help if you had him in your team though.
Goal of the week – Roberto Firmino. His second just shades it.
