As always, the second post is usually the more awaited of the week.  Why?  It’s the same reason that people love the home run, the touchdown, or the over.  It is no different when we start talking about the middies and strikers for the week.  We fall in love with the goals and the tallies that come along with them.  All just facts.  Also a fact is that like always the rankings are always based on price, match-up, form and common sense.  So if you disagree… say so.  I am here for your service in this FPL game that we all love so much.  So enjoy the rankings, long intro’s are for squares and for people who don’t really have much to say so they make it long winded.  Cheers!

  • You officially have my permission to own both Eriksen and Alli.  Eriksen is criminally under-owned compared to his peers.  Still a differential, which is crazy pants.
  • Chelsea look all wrong footed and now are severely undermanned.  Willian is the lone representative to the fantasy tool shed for the blues
  • How can you not love Liverpool middies.  I didn’t love Wijnaldum’s performance last week, so he misses out as punishment… only thing that may save him is that he likes playing at home.  Sleeper!
  • It will be interesting where the new Everton field general fits in when Gylfi Sigurdsson suits up for the Toffees.
  • Mooy could be a nice differential for Terrier believers who needed to punt of off Zaha.  Good price and cozy ownership right now.

Forwards:

  1. Romelu Lukaku, Man United
  2. Sergio Aguero, Man City
  3. Alexandre Lacazette, Arsenal
  4. Jamie Vardy, Leicester
  5. Roberto Firmino, Liverpool
  6. Harry Kane, Spurs
  7. Gabriel Jesus, Man City
  8. Alvaro Morata, Chelsea
  9. Steve Mounie, Huddersfield
  10. Jay Rodriguez, West Brom
  11. Christian Benteke, Crystal Palace
  • Lukau versus Swansea… yes please.  Is the most owned player in the official game and should/will be the most captained player this week.  Keep it chalk in the early stages my friends.
  • The Harry the Kane voodoo is still in effect.  If he doesn’t score this week it is good for all of is.  We get to save money as he will be panicked on more than any other player.  12.4 sounds better then 12.5
  • Jaime Vardy will lead the league in goals… after Week 2.
  • Mounie with a brace last week, has all the girls and me swooning.
  • Jay Rod had the most shots by any individual player last week.  Something is coming, even if it is wrapped in a weird Tony Pulis candy coated defensive outside.
