Top of the league – The Craggy Islanders – 2128 points

The three way battle for Buckets supremacy took another twist this week. The Islanders remain top, but theirs and Albions less than average totals opened the door for Da Pitch to creep back into real contention. The Islander’s wildcard was played with more than one eye on next weeks fixtures, but Brighton’s total failure as a double gameweek team this week let them and many others down. No goals scored and seven conceded is not what was wanted. Some managers fell even further into the trap and captained a Brighton defender. It’s a cruel irony that the best bet would have been to stick with those single gameweeking bloody Bournemouth players who hammered the first five past the hapless Seagulls defence. Take some consolation in the fact that Brighton defender Shane Duffy backed himself in his own fantasy side. Bizarrely, however, he also had Callum Wilson in his attack!

Manager of the week – King Raggg – Stephen Darling – 90 points

King Raggg accumulated 31 points from Bournemouth assets, as well as healthy contributions from captain Christian Eriksen and Raheem Sterling, to post an impressive 90 point total. It puts them top of the monthly league at the halfway stage. Not a single Brighton player in sight. A wise move.

Player of the week – Lucas Moura – Tottenham Hotspur – 21 points

Spurs players were popular among most managers and not just those on a wildcard ahead of next week’s double. Any team playing Huddersfield almost guarantees some return. Even before Dele Alli was ruled out, Lucas Moura should have come into contention for many more teams than he did, considering the likely rotation ahead of their European fixture in the midweek. Son was benched but nabbed a late assist much to the relief of many managers -and Christian Eriksen provided the same return in a 90 minute performance. This paved the way for Moura to provide a hat trick, top bonus and a load of hindsight.

Bargain of the week – Sean Morrison – 16 points

And in the end the best double gameweeker came from Cardiff. One point from the Burnley game was followed up with fifteen against Brighton. Its Morrison’s eighth clean sheet – Cardiff’s ninth overall. Brighton have kept six. Weren’t Cardiff the better bet for points in the first place?

Twat of the week – Troy Deeney – Watford – -2 points

Deeney was another popular choice on wildcard ahead of the double. He’ll play no further part in that. Watford will have to look to Andre Gray or Isaac Success to maintain their quest for the best of the rest. Some fantasy managers will be less enthused to make the same switch I imagine.

Goal of the week – Mohamed Salah. 1m08s

Manager of the week – Queen of the North – Dorine Reacher – 97 points (7 goals)

Two managers reached a whopping 97 points this week. King Raggg climb back up to 13th with their haul. Five players posted double figure returns, with Aguero as captain, Sane as their other pointsworthy City asset, Arnautovic and Richarlison finding the net and Ben Chilwell hitting an assist and clean sheet double. Raggg’s fringe players scored slightly better, but QOTN’s big hitters hit big. As well as Richarlison’s brace, they became the first player in living memory to benefit from Alvaro Morata’s existence – and stuck the armband on Raheem Sterling. The in-form Anthony Martial added another, posting his third double figure score in four outings. QOTN climb 10 places as a result.

At the top the gap has closed. Decidedly average weeks from Da Pitch and Da Albion have let Neil Madrid in particular sneak back into close contention. And an 80+ score from 2017 champs, The Craggy Islanders, has seen them rise to their highest position of the season so far

Player of the week – Raheem Sterling – Manchester City – 21 points

More people captained Sergio Aguero this week than any other and he didn’t disappoint. Unless you also had Sterling. In which case there were 16 more points to be had with the armband. Sterling overtakes Aguero in the overall points standings as a result, moves to within two of Eden Hazard and claims the highest weekly player score for the season thus far. And he’s still only in 7% of teams, which is a very low ownership given his scoring power. Those who think he’s at risk of rotation, he’s started nine of the eleven games so far, and returned in seven of them. Those put off by the asking price might want to reconsider.

Bargain of the week – Raul Jiminez – Wolverhampton Wanderers – 12 points

Jiminez has been ticking over quite nicely as Wolves’ first choice striker scoring between 4 and 5 points a game on average. This was his highest return despite it being in a game in which they lost. He looks nailed on to start every week and although they’re not scoring loads of goals, the ones they do score generally involve him.

Twat of the week – Wesley Hoedt – Southampton – -3 points

Our first double twat of the week. Hoedt’s last appearance on the roll of dishonour came after he bundled an own goal in against Liverpool a few weeks back. Not wanting to give the Scousers an unfair advantage in the title race, he’s gone and done the same thing against Manchester City. Southampton play Chelsea in GW21.

Goal of the week – Richarlison (1st goal). His second was pretty good too.
