The 2019/20 edition of Telegraph Fantasy Football is in full swing as Julie Brian reached the summit of the overall leaderboard at the end of Week Two.
Her team, Jubbs XI, produced 122 TFF points over the weekend, leaving her three points ahead of Jon Pregon in second.
As for the team of the week, a 3-5-2 formation was the key to success with a Manchester City trio of Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva all featuring. How many of these players did you have in your starting XI?
VAR played another significant role in Week Two, disallowing a potential Gabriel Jesus stoppage time winner against Spurs, while Arsenal also saw an effort ruled out when Nacho Monreal was judged to be offside in the build-up.
Here’s what else we learned:
1. Pukki top of the stats
Norwich’s £4.6m-rated striker has been the surprise package of the season so far, topping the stats centre with 17 TFF points in Week Two.
He’s produced two more points than Raheem Sterling and both players have four goals in the race for the Golden Boot.
Pukki now features in 10% of all teams as 6,200 TFF managers transferred him in - this was more than any other player in Week Two.
2. A slow start for defenders
Everton’s Lucas Digne is the only defender within the top 10 overall point-scorers so far.
In fact, if you ruled out the Everton defence, who have recorded back-to-back clean sheets in the opening two game weeks, then Burnley’s Erik Pieters is the only defender in the top 20.
It’s been a slow start for the defenders that performed so well in the 2018/19 season.
3. Martial defying his category
Anthony Martial has been classified as a midfielder for the 2019/20 edition of Telegraph Fantasy Football and you can acquire his services for a modest price of £4.8m.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has deployed the Frenchman as a striker in the first two game weeks and he’s rewarded 9% of all managers with two goals and a key contribution in that time.
United have an appealing run of fixtures ahead, against Crystal Palace (H), Southampton (A), Leicester (H) and West Ham (A) so it’s well worth considering Martial if you’re looking to add more fire power to your midfield.
4. Watchlist: Todd Cantwell (£2.4m)
Looking for a valuation option to balance out your budget? Norwich’s Todd Cantwell is priced as just £2.4m and has returned more points per million than any other midfielder.
The two key contributions he provided for Teemu Pukki has taken him to double digits for the season, with 10 TFF points to his name.
Keep an eye out on the 21-year-old in the upcoming weeks.
