Manager of the week – Upper Bullens – Andy Taylor – 79 points

It wasn’t a great week for Hornets, but they did surpass the 1000 point mark – our first and only team to do so thus far. Our team of the week scored almost twice as many points and did so off the back of a resurgent Everton side. Wayne Rooney captained Upper Bullens to 79 points. Jonjoe Kenny chipped in with another six points for a third clean sheet in four. The young right back is locked in until Seamus Coleman returns it seems and will still only set you back £4.3 million. In fact three of Everton’s back four – that’s Kenny, Cuco Martina and Mason Holgate – won’t cost you any more than that price.

Player of the week – Shinnji Okazaki – 16 points

Why hadn’t anyone thought of playing Okazaki for 90 minutes before? He’s normally hooked around the 70 minute mark. This will end up being his best fantasy season. Even better than the championship winning season. He’s already on six goals – the most he’s ever managed in a campaign.

Bargain of the week – Tiemoue Bakayoko – 9 points

It’s odd to see an elite team player in bargain section, but at only £5 million, Bakayoko is your second cheapest route into the Chelsea team after N’Golo Kante. Kante is a bit of a waste of funds as your classic holding midfielder. Bakayoko’s score has been ticking along at the same rate – and so is probably not worth the investment either.

Twat of the week – Jonjo Shelvey – -1 points

It was so nearly another Watford player picking up the twat award for yet another sending off. It would have been their fifth of the season and maybe a stat worth noting when considering changes to the team. However, Tom Cleverley was spared the ignominy by virtue of costing £0.1 million less than Shelvey. Also probably a more justified red given the challenges involved.

Goal of the week – James McCarthur.

This was tough. It was a week low on belters, but Zaha’s trickery and the last-minute-ness of the goal wins the award. 1m04s.

It’s a record breaking week in Buckets. The previous record highest weekly total was 165 points recorded back in the 2013-2014 season. That was smashed by five teams this week. Hats off to Neil Madrid, To Elland Back, FC Caligula and The Craggy Islanders for playing the double gameweek and winning. Double hats off to Edgbaston, who with 181 points, have the highest weekly total ever recorded by a Buckets team. A total of 29 teams scored triple figure scores –  including all but one of our top 21.

When Harry Met Alli scored 149 points. They and the Islanders leapfrog Aquamar, whose comparatively meagre 114 sees them drop into third. It’s still a three way fight for the title, but the momentum is surely with the top two teams. WHMA were chipped out (but for All Out Attack) so the fact that they matched those playing their triple captains and bench boosts is pretty remarkable. I predicted the Islanders might sneak into first place this week given they had their bench boost remaining. Both teams had Sanchez and Kane in their ranks but chose a different captain. One of them might have sewn the title up had they gone with the slightly more obvious choice.

Harry Kane’s 31 points is the highest weekly player score of the season. Alexis Sanchez held that record for all of two days before Kane’s blitz against Leicester last night. Gabriel Jesus was another popular armband choice among Buckets managers, and also came good with a 19 point haul. Curiously, Diego Costa  was the most popular captain choice in the world game according to the FPL site. Buckets managers are obviously a lot more savvy. I’m not sure any of us went down that route. Didn’t it seem way too obvious that Chelsea would win the league at West Brom and then rotate?

 

Edgbaston, who bench boosted to get their 181 points, now sit in fourth place. The race for the final prize money slot is still probably between five teams. There are 23 points separating them and Hedgehog Corpse in eighth. Unsurprisingly they also lead the chase for the May manager of the month with the other high scorers from this double gameweek in hot pursuit.

Player of the week – Harry Kane – 31 points. Now leads the golden boot chase.

Bargain of the week – Kyle Naughton – 15 points. Non-double gameweeker and serial donkey. Well done Kyle.

Donkey of the week – Christian Fuchs – -1 points. Conceding six doesn’t help.

Goal of the week – Shinji Okazaki.
