Alrighty! Gameweek one is over and the results are in. Hopefully you all finalized your team picks before the servers decided to crash ahead of kickoff. The top three as the league stands are:
- 70 pts - Hammedstringham FC (who could have had 74 points if he started Hojbjerg over Sigurdsson and Heaton over Valdes)
- 68 pts - bunch of kantes
- 67 pts - EasyWins/Barry Leathercushion
Gameweek one always seems like it leaves people feeling one of three ways: really smart, really stupid, or a mixture of the two (which is where I’m at right now. I started Erik Lamela who got 9 points, but also played Patrick van Aanholt... who came home with a single point. Don’t ask me why PVA made my starting 11)
Having said that, if you’re feeling stuck and in need of some advice please feel free to comment and discuss! I will certainly try to do my best and hopefully some others will join in as well. Also, our partners-in-blog, Never Manage Alone is SB Nation’s fantasy soccer blog, so they are also a great resource if you are looking to get an edge on your fellow Cottagers.
Last but not least, a big thanks to all 93 of you who signed up to play. I wasn’t sure how many people would be interested, so 93 people is fantastic! If you haven’t joined up yet and would like to, I believe you still can? We’re on the official Fantasy Premier League website and the league code is 2124457-507237 so give it a shot. The more the merrier.
1 gameweek down... and 37 more to go.
