Double GameWeeks and CHIPS create massive scores - for some

This was our first big opportunity to play our CHIPS and some of us did really well out of it.

The highest score in the overall league was an amazing 186 points and in our league there were huge numbers of 100+ point scores.

Incredibly, many of our managers didn’t play their CHIPS this week. Look at anyone with a sub 100 score and they’re a candidate for this.

Maybe they used them all up earlier in the season?

Maybe they played their wildcard too late and couldn’t play their CHIP on the same week?

Maybe they didn’t know what a CHIP was?

Maybe they thought that having three CHIPS left at the end of the season was some sort of good thing?

Or maybe, like the unlucky Ben Wilcox from Bauhaus, they selected Aguero as their Triple Captain and then forgot to press confirm!

Oh dear! What a mess.

Managers. If you mucked up with your CHIPS this week don’t let it happen next season.

  1. CHIPS are best for Double GameWeeks
  2. The Double GameWeeks don’t happen until at least March and usually April. Wait until then.
  3. Prepare your team for the DGW with prior transfers
  4. Play your CHIPS in the DGWs to get a super boost to your scores
  5. Read our newsletter for all the info.

You know it makes sense 

BTW, don’t forget the short week, this week. Only 14 games played.

In our league, the Top 10 are as follows:

Alan Furley

Mike Bernard

Andrew Dyson

Jay Egersdorff

Manager of the Week

Rob Smith.......

Fresh from his Liverpool derby success last night, Rob has had a most brilliant week with no less than 145 points which has projected him, from a Page 2 Pacesetter just a few weeks ago, to this week’s MOTW. He had his full compliment of Liverpool players in there, even if Kloppo sent us all flying with his second choice team selection against Bournemouth at the weekend. Good job they scored 4 last night eh? Rob Triple Captained Aguero this week for a massive 78 points for him alone.

Great week for you Rob and a great performance by your team last night.

Maxim Syncyszyn ......

With an absolutely massive 145 points in 85th place, we find Maxim Syncyszyn. Maxim played BenchBoost this week and that brought him 19 points, primarily from Deli Alli. Newcastle’s Townsend was an unusual one but he brought in 16 points and he captained Aguero for a further 52 points.

Welcome to the club, Maxim.

The Best of the Rest

Ryan Roberts.........

Ryan’s not been on these pages before, but this week’s 120 points in 107th place has got him there this week. Ryan played his Triple Captain CHIP and it wasn’t a bad shout in make Sanchez carry that responsibility. Alas, he could have chosen any one of his front three of Rashford, Sturridge and Aguero to much greater effect. Shame.

Welcome to the newsletter Ryan. A great score this week. Keep with Rashford next time!

Taxi for...........

Jamie Vardy.......

Vardy came back from a lean spell where he’d only scored one goal in eight games to bag three in two. However he’s suspended for the next game and only has three games after that. The problem for Leicester is that goals is just one of the things that Vardy brings to the side. For us, it’s assists. He’ll be a big miss, but we think you’d be better with someone with more games at this stage in the season.

Get him binned!

One to watch..........

Christian Eriksen..........

With Spurs showing no let up in their quest for the title, Eriksen is their second most in-form player after Alderweireld who every man and his dog has. With 30 points in the last 4 games, he’s delivered a goal and 4 assists in that time, which makes his £8.6m price tag great value. Spurs remaining fixtures – WBA H, Chelsea A, Southampton H, Newcastle A are all games where he can make his mark.

No Brainer!

Team names please

The reason we ask for your agency name as part of your team name is because it’s the only way we can ensure that we are paying the prizes out to the correct managers and that those managers are genuinely in the recruitment industry.

With the latest hacking of our league from semi-professional FL-ers, its even more important. Please help us manage the league better by doing this.

However, those of you who aren’t putting in your team names are missing out on some great publicity for your agency and, as recruiters tend to be competitive creatures, isn’t it better to beat you rivals in business AND in the fantasy league?
