The week in Fantasy Premier League: Harry's haul, the Chelsea problem and predicting the GW38 goalfests
Ken Rooney and FPL Stag
It was truly a Gameweek like no other. Gameweek 37 was a wild ride, as the thrill of massive points totals was tempered with a pang of regret for most.
Hopefully those who captained Alexis Sanchez (ARS, 11.6) didn’t boast too much before Harry Kane’s four-goal annihilation of Leicester.
Pretty much all of the big hitters scored big, with the exception of Hazard, Costa and Lukaku.
Although not disastrous by any means, the prevailing strategy of playing Bench Boost in GW37 didn’t quite work out as spectacularly as many hoped. Triple Captainers generally enjoyed the most eye-watering scores in a week that redrew the boundaries of what was possible in terms of FPL scoring.
Suddenly the hallowed halls of the ‘100 Club’ began to look more like a scene straight out of Project X, prompting the new aristocrats of the FPL to take the sherry decanters and cigars to more genteel surroundings of the 200 Club.
GW37 will also be remembered as the week where so many frustrated FPL managers finally got their reward for simply sticking with it.
