FPL round up: Fraser huge differential value

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The AFC Bournemouth fantasy league got off to a flyer this weekend, with well over 10,000 fans entering their Official Fantasy Premier League teams.

Gameweek 1 seemed to be a week where benches made the difference - for positive and negative reasons - for managers fighting at the top and the bottom.

LEAGUE TOP SCORER

Supporter Vladimir Jelenić from Serbia, scored a massive 133 points, that's some going considering the average score was 53!

Vladimir had three Cherries men in his starting line up, which contributed 18 points to his score - he sits ten points above the nearest challenger, Toni Sirichantr.

Ryan Fraser bagged 11 points with his well taken goal against Cardiff, while Charlie Daniels picked up five for his clean sheet and Joshua King added a further two.

But it was the bench that got Vladimir top of the pile, as a cleverly used Bench Boost saw Ben Foster, Patrick Van Aanholt, Wilfried Zaha and Benjamin Mendy accumilate a whopping 37 points.

Congratulations Vladimir for winning Gameweek 1!

FRASER THE DIFFERENCE

At £5.5m and with just 1.7% ownership across the league, the Scotsman proved pivotal this weekend with 11 points.

His goal, as well as clean sheet and three bonus points, are sure to see his ownership increase rapidly over the week, with 14,525 managers already swooping for him.

His value helped the top scorer in the entire game, Alex Baleanu, reach 137 as a bench boost meant Fraser played alongside the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Luke Shaw.

LOOKING AHEAD

Out of the top 25 players from Gameweek 1, three of them were Cherries, in the shape of Fraser, Callum Wilson and Nathan Ake.

Only Chelsea and Crystal Palace boasted more in the top 25 players - Chelsea had five while Palace had four.

With an away game against West Ham United on the horizon and confidence high, Cherries players may feature in more squads for the upcoming Gameweek 2, particularly with the value they provide - not one Cherries player is worth more than £6.5m.

Steve Cook and Ake put their bodies on the line with a number of blocks and interceptions against Cardiff, with Ake awarded two bonus points for his endeavours.

Wilson bagged eight points and started the season strongly with a goal and an assist, also having six shots, more than double any other player in the Cardiff game.

With the West Ham game rated as a three according to the FPL difficulty rankings, it may be wise to invest in Eddie Howe's squad.
