Manager: Dan Bennett

Team Value: £101.9m

Current Rank Range: Top 300k 

Chip Played: Wildcard 

Transfers : Wildcard played

Nine time Top-10k finisher Dan Bennett deployed his wildcard in gameweek eight and it was off to a rocky start with benchings for Dias, A. Armstrong and R. James. Cameos for Dias and R. James meant that Livramento's six points stayed on the bench but the veteran is well placed for the weeks ahead. The Man. City triple up should spell plenty of points and he is primed to capitalise on Chelsea's upcoming fixtures of Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley as well. He scored 50 points which was around the average score, so he has not lost much ground. 


Manager: Mr Black 

Team Value: £101.9m

Current Rank Range: Top 20k

Chip played: none

Transfers : Ronaldo to Lukaku, Coufal to Cancelo

Sitting in the Top 20k, eight-time Top-5k finisher Mr Black brought in Cancelo with his free transfer which immediately paid dividends. With Livramento subbing on for Jota, he banked four clean sheets this week from the Saints defender, Cancelo, Alexander-Arnold and Sanchez. He also kept the faith in Greenwood and was rewarded with seven points. His score of 66 points meant that it was another green arrow yet again for the veteran.


Manager: James Cooper 

Team Value: £102.1m

Current Rank Range: Top 100k

Chip played: none

Transfers: Grealish to Foden

Five-time Top-5k finisher James Cooper was one of the few Elite XI managers to bring in Foden this week and was rewarded with a return of six points from the midfielder. His double Arsenal defence let him down but he banked clean sheets from Azpilicueta, Cancelo and Livramento. His score of 59 points was still well above the average and he enjoyed another green arrow, taking him inside the Top 100k. It will be interesting to see if he brings in Alexander-Arnold back soon with the Liverpool right-back a popular choice amongst the other Elite XI managers.
