Crikey, points were hard to come by this week.
A season lowest high score (if you see what I mean), and an average of just 43.71 meant that selecting the right captain was absolutely vital – along with not selecting too many Wolves players. You transferred some in? Well, it was a banker, wasn’t it?
We also saw a new impressive way of getting eliminated this week – playing your WildCard. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that.
Here are the gory details:
Average Score: 43.71 (42 participants) – overall competition average 43
Highest Score: 60 – overall competition high score 113
Total competitors: 5,778,504 (+25,890)

Gameweek Rank: 5,267,521 – bottom 8.84%
Captain – Kane (Spurs) : 2=4 –

Nothing would’ve helped.

My team? Mid-range – safe.
Week 9 is signed off and we now have 40 teams going into Week 10.
Huddersfield, which last season was a bit of a B*********h. Bring in Schindler, Mooy and Mounie, do you think? Or make Pereyra captain?
