Arsenal star Bukayo Saka is one of several Premier League stars upgraded on the fantasy football scene ahead of the new season. Saka has moved from 6.5 at the start of Premier League football last season to 8.0 for the new season. The Englishman has been rewarded for being one of the best midfielders on the fantasy football scene last season.

England international Saka was in the top six amongst the fantasy football midfielders last season. Only the quintet of Mohamed Salah of Liverpool (265), Son Heung-Min of Tottenham Hotspur (258), Jarrod Bowen of West Ham United (206), Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne (196) and Leicester City playmaker James Maddison (181) had more points than Saka on the fantasy football scene last season. Arsenal player Saka had 179 points last season after a fantasy football return of 11 goals and nine assists. (more…)

Have United finally clicked into gear?

All those fantasy football players who added the likes of Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku before the season started must be feeling pretty upset with themselves, having seen the Reds make hard work of Leicester before losing to Brighton and then failing to even get a gaol against Tottenham, and conceding 3 goals in both matches in the process!

They showed a slight improvement against Burnley, with a fairly stodgy 2-0 win, but finally started showing some kind of semblance of attack in theri most recent game against Watford. Maybe, just maybe, they have the attacking intent and ability to once again start putting teams to the sword in the way that both Manchester CIty and Liverpool invariably do. (more…)
