Hands up (or should that be feet up?) if Sadio Mané ruined your FPL Draft weekend? The Premier League’s player of the month scored minus 2 points against Man City and nobody could have seen that coming, especially not Ederson. Here we take a look at who else made the headlines in Gameweek 4.
LIKE A BOSS! It was a good weekend for…
Anyone who read the FPL Draft Boss article on Streaming: last week our resident expert FPL Robinson encouraged our readers to pick up Ben Mee, Robbie Brady & Chris Wood from the free agent pool ahead of Burnley’s game with Palace. Anyone following his advice would have earned 6pts, 2pts and 9pts respectively for the trio. 17 points in total is a perfect example of how Streaming works and you can read more about it here.
Pascal Groß, MF, Brighton & Hove Albion: 2 goals and an assist for the summer signing from Bundesliga side Ingolstadt. With games against Bournemouth & Newcastle on the horizon the German is sure to be improving upon his current 1% ownership.
Harry Kane owners: Anyone who took the England forward with the first pick of the draft should have known he never scores in August but watching Lukaku bang the goals in can’t have been easy. When September comes though normal service is resumed and Kane duly obliged with a brace against Everton.
TOTAL DROSS! It was a bad weekend for…
Christian Benteke owners (again): Even an improved display for Crystal Palace away at Turf Moor wasn’t enough to save Frank De Boer and he leaves the Premier League with one of the worst managerial records in the history of English top flight football. Up next for Palace? Southampton (H), Man City (A), Man Utd (A), Chelsea (H). Good luck to whoever replaces the Dutchman in the hotseat…
Anyone who dropped Trippier and brought in Aurier: Long term you may win the war but Trippier started the game, finished the game and scored 10 points this week meaning the battle was very much lost.
The guy in my league who streamed Sam Vokes instead of Chris Wood: I feel for you, brother. That’s just how it goes in Fantasy Football. You win some, you lose some, you pick the wrong Burnley centre forward and watch the other guy score after 3 minutes.
