In this article, we take a look at what has happened since our last fantasy football update. There has been a lot going on in the Mi Property’s broker league and the Premier League, but here’s everything you need to know.
Premier League Overview
Arsenal has had a strong start to the season, losing only one game and drawing one. Arsenal’s recent outstanding record is a testament to the Arsenal board’s faith in manager Mikel Arteta, who won the August MOTM award.
Newcastle have got into the top four, an astonishing achievement for a squad striving to restore St James’ Park’s golden days. Almiron, a player many had forgotten about, has returned Eddie Howe’s faith in him by producing 8 goals and 87 points in FPL this season. Almiron earned himself the Premier League player of the month award for his contributions toward Newcastle rise in October.
Liverpool have slipped off this season, they have picked up 19 points and sit 8 on the league table. They’re closer to the relegation zone than the league leaders, Arsenal. Is the top four still attainable for Liverpool? Only time will tell.
Despite achieving a rare victory against Liverpool, big spenders Nottingham Forest (£150 million spent in the summer) have had a difficult year. With 10 points, Notts Forest are 20th in the standings, joined by Southampton (18th) and Wolves (19th).
Brokers Fantasy Football League Catch-up
Congratulations to Callum Davidson, who has been leading the league for weeks and received our most recent MOTM award! Fred West Ham, Karnark Chasers, and The A Team are the top 3 teams right now. Karnark Chasers moved into second place in GW15, surpassing The A Team.
Eddie Howe was recently announced as the premier league MOTM and this means it’s time for us to name ours. Peter Robinson of Karnark Chasers, who scored 725 points between game weeks 3 and 15, is the Broker’s League MOTM for October. Congratulations, Peter. You will shortly receive your award.
Qatar World Cup 2022
The World Cup is just a days away, and GW16 is the final game before it. Many players will be out playing for their nations, which increases the chance of injury, particularly given how soon the season will resume. Therefore, when the PL returns, FPL managers will need to reconsider their picks. Fortunately, you will be able to make unlimited transfers during the WC.
The burning question now is how far England will progress in this year’s competition?
