GW13 Top Five Key Players

Gameweek 13's headline player Mané (9.0) has this week been shortlisted for Africa's player of the year. An award dominated by Yaya Toure (7.6) in recent years. The recognition is nothing less than the Senegalese man deserves, having contributed to an enormous 97 goals (including assists) in his last 141 league appearances. More importantly, he has managed to contribute to 40 in 78 Premier League games at a better rate than one in two.

GW12 Top Five Key Players

If Kane (10.7) doesn't pick up any trophies or personal honours this season, at least he can remember 16/17 for being the first (and probably the last) Fix headline player that is also our “differential” pick in the same week. Yes, surprisingly, Kane is currently owned by just 5.6% as we approach gameweek 11's deadline. After a seven week injury lay off Kane took little time to climb back aboard the goalscorer's bus. His penalty in gameweek 11's north London derby was enough to ensure that Spurs remain unbeaten in the Premier League and earned him two additional bonus points.

GW11 Top Five Key Players

Aguero (13.1) sparked quite a debate across fantasy football social media channels last week. Many questioned whether it was time to pull the plug on the highest priced forward, a move Pep seemingly carried out himself by benching him two games running. The consensus among fantasy veterans was keep him at all costs, the one essential player the game has, but he still dropped in price and sadly for the majority who decided against keeping him he punished them in true “Agueroooooo” fashion with two goals and one assist in an away tie to West Brom.

GW10 Top Five Key Players

Lukaku (9.7) is our go to man this week. Romelu had an indifferent opening to the season, with speculation over where his immediate footballing future was and with more rumours about moving away than Travolta sex life gossip columns, it made sense for fantasy manager’s to err on the side of caution. For now, that has been brushed under the carpet and it appears on the surface to be happy campers between player and manager. Koeman's first task was to ground the big powerhouse’s feet and with attacking points from five of his last six games it certainly seems like that is a mission accomplished.

GW9 Top Five Key Players

While Coutinho (8.3) lacks a level of physicality we come to expect at the highest level, he certainly makes up for it, and then some, with his technical ability. Arguably the most gifted footballer in the Premier League at shifting the ball back onto his favoured right boot from wide positions. Not since the days of Bale, who mastered the same technique from the opposing wing have we seen someone perfect the move time and time again.

GW8 Top Five Key Players

Mr Walcott (7.7), where do we begin? Well, seasoned fantasy managers know that Theo is (when playing regularly) fantasy gold dust! For those new to the game, this isn’t an early Halloween trick, Theo really is the real deal in terms of consistent fantasy football returns. Yes, we are talking about the same player that when deployed on the wing takes on the opposing defender with the same skilful efficiency as David Dunn performing a rabona - Poorly. Though, while he lacks panache in one on one situations he makes up for it with clever off the shoulder runs, one two passing (helping him evade those one on ones) and devilishly accurate finishing – Which in truth, still doesn’t quite get the praise it deserves. His fantasy football points return over the years is absolutely astounding. A strong adjective, but, fully justified.

GW7 Top Five Key Players

Bellerin (6.5) is the highest priced defender alongside rival Alderweireld (6.5) from the other half of North London. With a premium price tag comes great expectations and Bellerin looks ready to prove his worth after an impressive showing in Arsenal's last game at home to Chelsea. That saw the speedster full back leave the defensively lethargic Hazard for dead on more than one occasion and return attacking points as a result.

GW6 Top Five Key Players

Walker (5.8), earns a place in our Top 5 Key players this week after a very consistent start to his season. Spurs have begun this season much like they did last year, steady and effective. Their goal scoring averages have been conservative to say the least - When you consider that they scored four against a Stoke side who are looking all at sea - they have only managed four goals in the other four games, yet, have managed 11 points from 15 with no losses. So, it’s their defensive ability under Pochettino that places Walker firmly on our radar.

GW5 Top Five Key Players

Up until last season, Baines (5.5), was always considered fantasy gold dust, an absolute must if you will. The only first choice penalty taker classified as a defender in the game and one of only a handful of defenders that share free kick and corner spoils. So, what's the catch?

GW4 Top Five Key Players

Adrian (5.0) had the luxury of being absent from Chadwell Heath training ground over the last two weeks, after the stopper got his first international call up for Spain. In truth, it was a fitting reward for his performances over the last year and another thing to add to his burgeoning CV. West Ham’s number one is projected to outscore any other Goalkeeper in Gameweek four and we can think of several reasons why.
