Fantasy Sports – Premier League Week 6 Recap

Legend: (*) – starting XI, ⇐ – incoming (transfer), ⇒ – outgoing (transfer), ¤ – Captain.
Goalkeepers:

  • *David de Gea (Week 6 points: 5) – The Manchester United performance wasn’t great; they were substantial favorites against recent promotees in Wolves but weren’t able to hold on. I think this has to be viewed as a rather disappointing result. de Gea was unable to keep a clean sheet either so his point value this week wasn’t what we were hoping for.
  • Jonas Lössl (Week 6 points: 2) – Lössl made a number of saves but also shipped 3 goals in route to their loss. This went pretty much as expected for Huddersfield.

Defenders:

  • *Schindler (Week 6 points: 1) – Schindler was a last minute pivot play after Mendy was ruled out for several weeks. I just seem to have a knack for picking injured players this season.
  • *Monreal (Week 6 points: 6) – Monreal played the full 90 and kept a clean sheet for a good, solid performance from Arsenal.
  • *Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Week 6 points: 9) – Wan-Bissaka continues to reward our faith in him with yet another dominant performance while Palace kept a clean sheet against Newcastle.
  • Fredericks (Week 6 points: 0) – Fredericks rode the bench againt this week and I can’t wait for his squad status to be sorted out so that I can keep him if he’s going to play, and jettison him if not.
  • Benjamin Mendy (Week 6 points: 0) – Mendy sounds like he’s going to be out for a while and if I’m honest I haven’t decided what to do with him yet.

Midfielders:

  • *Mo Salah (Week 6 points: 8 [16 if captain]) – Salah continues his goal scoring tirade, scoring one of the 3 goals scored by Liverpool in route to a dominant 3-0 win with a clean sheet to boot.
  • *Pogba (Week 6 points: 5) – Pogba’s cap is very much affected by Manchester United being unable to put together any real run of form. And a disappointing home performance against Wolves obviously didn’t help. He was able to rack up an assist on United’s only goal.
  • Fred (Week 6 points: 10) – Fred was perhaps the one bright spot for United this week. He got off the mark with his first goal for United (with an assist from Pogba) and got them off to a decent start.
  • James Milner (Week 6 points: 1) – Milner was one of only a few Liverpool players to not really impact the game and only played 45 minutes.

Forwards:

  • *Harry Kane (Week 6 points: 9) – Kane continued his form with yet another goal in route to a victory of Brighton. Spurs have kept up their great form, and have positioned themselves well for the rest of the season.
  • *Marko Arnautovic (Week 6 points: 0) – Arnautovic ended up taking the week off against Chelsea which end up with a 0-0 draw. I bet there’s some questioning sitting him unless his knee injury was markedly worse because of the close nature of the game. Although the logic may be that Manchester United seems like a much more open game and the possibility for points might be better based on their struggles.
  • *Joshua King (Week 6 points: 2) – Bournemouth got thrashed by Burnley in one of the more surprising results of the day, I certainly didn’t see a 4-0 thumping coming here.

Conclusion:
This week was a nice bounce back from the low-scoring performances of the last two weeks. And this was even with some results that have to go down as upsets with Manchester United failing to beat Wolves and Chelsea failing to beat a West Ham team in a shockingly bad current run of form.
