Now onto our writers, we will go from best to worst.

1) Mark – T12th place (+5 positions) – 47 points this week – 84 points total

GK – Simon Mignolet – Liverpool – 6
DEF – Phil Jagielka – Everton – 6
DEF – Nathaniel Clyne – Liverpool – 6

FW – Wayne Rooney – Manchester United – 2
FW – Graziano Pelle – Southampton – 1

Mark remains the leader among the writers and is just outside the top ten. While the attackers aren’t doing all that impressively, the defenders and Mignolet are making up for that.

 

2) Jeff – T18th place (+36 positions) – 57 points this week – 81 points total

GK – Lukasz Fabianski – Swansea – 6
DEF – John Stones – Everton – 7
DEF – Angelo Ogbonna – West Ham – 1

MID – Jordan Henderson – Liverpool – 4
MID – Santi Cazorla – Arsenal – 2
MID – Cheikhou Kouyate – West Ham – 5
FW – Harry Kane – Tottenham – 2
FW – Christian Benteke (captain) – Liverpool – 18

Jeff has greatly improved and moved up 36 positions to 18th. Christian Benteke’s goal in the Liverpool/Bournemouth game got him double points and cemented a great week.

 

3) Josh H. – 23rd place (+27 positions) – 58 points this week – 79 points total

GK – Jack Butland – Stoke – 2
DEF – Vincent Kompany – Manchester City – 11
DEF – Phil Jagielka – Everton – 6
DEF – Ashley Williams – Swansea – 9
DEF – Branislav Ivanovic – Chelsea – 0

MID – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – Arsenal – 1
MID – Gylfi Sigurdsson – Swansea – 3
FW – Christian Benteke – Liverpool – 9
FW – Wayne Rooney (captain) – Manchester United – 4

While Josh H. failed to captain someone who had a big game, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were able to score in the double digits and give Josh a very great week. Except for Ivanovic’s 0, the other three defenders earned clean sheets.

 

4) Evan – T34th place (-10 positions) – 35 points this week – 70 points total

GK – Sergio Romero – Manchester United – 6
DEF – Branislav Ivanovic – Chelsea – 0

MID – Yaya Toure – Manchester City – 5
MID – Dusan Tadic – Southampton – 1
FW – Saido Bernahino – West Brom – 4
FW – Harry Kane (captain) – Tottenham – 2

Evan dropped some spots but had a solid week overall. The bright spots included Sergio Romero and Nacer Chadli as Evan had the most consistent team of the week, matching the 35 points set last week.

 

5) Andy – T36th place (-5 positions) – 37 points this week – 69 points total

GK – Adrian – West Ham – -1
DEF – Phil Jagielka – Everton – 6

MID – Roberto Firmino – Liverpool – 1
FW – Troy Deeney – Watford – 2
FW – Saido Bernahino (captain) – West Brom – 4
FW – Harry Kane – Tottenham – 2

Andy had a bunch of players scoring goals and earning clean sheets, which salvaged a respectable week but he was unlucky in playing two players who were sent off, Adrian and Daryl Janmaat.

 

6) Josh E. – 38th place (+3 positions) – 40 points this week – 68 points total

GK – Joe Hart – Chelsea – 7
DEF – John Terry – Chelsea – 1

FW – Saido Bernahino – West Brom – 2

Josh moved up to the rest of the teams with this solid lineup. A goal by Chadli and a few clean sheets made for a solid week.

DEF – John Terry – Chelsea – 6
DEF – Phil Jagielka – Everton – 0
DEF – Branislav Ivanovic – Chelsea – 1
MID – Jason Puncheon – Crystal Palace – 2
MID – Philippe Coutinho (captain) – Liverpool – 6
MID – Santi Cazorla – Arsenal – 2
MID – Jack Colback – Newcastle – 2
FW – Graziano Pelle – Southampton – 1
FW – Harry Kane – Tottenham – 2
FW – Aleksandar Mitrovic – Newcastle – 0

Well this is an improvement, but this has been a very terrible two weeks in fantasy EPL for me. I’m definitely going go play my wildcard because half of this team needs to be taken out. In two weeks, I’ve had two goalkeepers get sent off, I’ve effectively ended John Terry’s career with him getting subbed and others like Branislav Ivanovic and Harry Kane haven’t been close to their great selves from last season. I just know once I get rid of them, they’re going to light it up so keep an eye out for my team and just do the opposite of what I do. It’s bound to get you some good points.

NOTE: Jason Puncheon was automatically substituted in for Joleon Lescott.
