Gameweek 1 can be summed up as the ‘Heavy Hitters’ gameweek where all the premium assets costing more than 10.0m had attacking returns, with the exception of Mane who didn’t start.
- Salah – 12.5m – 12pts
- Sterling – 12.0m – 20pts
- Aguero – 12.0m – 5pts
- Mane – 11.5m – 1pt
- Kane – 11.0m – 13pts
- Aubameyang – 11.0m – 6pts
Many of the fantasy teams who did well this week had 2 or even 3 of these heavy hitters (Salah, Sterling, Kane), supported by strong defences from Man City, Man United and Liverpool assets and budget midfielders and forwards.
Could this be the way to go for future Gameweek 1 squads? And will this strategy continue to work throughout the season?
I guess only time will tell and stay tuned for our preview of Gameweek 2.
