Captain Corner: Gameweek 6

Captain Corner

Gameweek 5 was a relatively high scoring week all round with some of the big players producing the goods once again. Thanks to accomplished performances from some highly favoured teams like Man City, Everton, Arsenal and Leicester many FPL managers were pleased with their point tallies. That’s not to say that the Gameweek passed without event though as was seen by the phantom goal for Lukaku (did he really touch it?), a questionable assist for Zlatan and two goals for Leicester’s new £30m striker. There were lots of points on offer and rewards for those who selected the right captain.

Form Guide: Gameweek 6

FormGuide_FINALGameweek 6 is around the corner and before you confirm your team, check out the Weekly Form Charts. These form charts should be one of many tools you use when deciding on your Gameweek transfers, formation and\or captain armbands. I created these last year to shift the captain choice from pure gut feel to a choice made from stats and history. Last week the charts predicted goals galore for Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Spurs so 2 out of 3 aint bad!

FPL Team Weekly: Gameweek 6

Gameweek 5 saw a hefty return of 80 points for the TOTW side, significantly above the gameweek average of 48. This was down to a range of solid contributors, namely; Tadic & Cedric of Southampton (6 and 9 points respectively) following their clean sheet in their victory over Swansea City, Alexis Sanchez (10 points), Lukaku (12, albeit rather controversial, points) and the now-injured Kane, who picked up 18 points total, courtesy of wearing the captain’s armband for us last week. We had failures from Benteke, who contrived to somehow manage to notch nothing of note during Crystal Palace’s 4-1 home win against Stoke, and that late concession also cost Mandanda a seemingly certain clean-sheet. We suffered with rotation, as Eriksen didn’t feature for Spurs during their victory over Sunderland, meaning Romeu came in (3 points), and Stones’ unlikely cameo role form the bench meant it was just a 1-point return for the £50m Man City defender.

#MadPick: Gameweek 6

PqsdjJn0.jpg large

Over the last 5 gameweeks, a lot of players have proved themselves to be essential. The likes of Aguero, Sanchez, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Antonio, Costa and Capoue have all been phenomenal in terms of FPL points and are daring FPL managers not to own them. However, the ownership of these players is getting higher by the minute and while I agree with some people on bringing them in, the only way to climb in ranks significantly is to have some differentials and take some risks. Not only does it give you a chance of getting a jump on your rivals, but trust me; it makes the game way more interesting. So, who to get for this week? That’s why I am here!
