And immediately along comes Week 6 with its record high eliminated scores (if you see what I mean).

Well, what a difference a week makes.  Suddenly there are points to be had everywhere and even scoring 46 points is not enough. You remember what I said last week? Well, it seems that, although it is difficult to go wrong making Lukaku captain, it is possible; and, while it may well be wise to avoid making Harry Kane captain for Spurs home matches, when they are playing away matches (at, say, West Ham), now that’s a different matter.  Avoiding Arsenal players is still a good plan, it seems.

4 players went again this week, with the lowest score being 40 points – the highest of the season.

As for me, an above average 61 still saw me drop down the table, but I am still in the competition, and there’s a growing number that can’t say that.
