Fantasy Premier League: Week 2 Recap

Second week of Premier League (@premierleague) action is in the books.

Arsenal (@Arsenal) finished with a convincing 1-3 victory over Fulham (@FulhamFC).

It was a fine result with the Gunners facing heavy scrutiny these days.

Aaron Ramsey (@aaronramsey) – a terribly frustrating player over the past few seasons – is really beginning to hit his stride and was, again, one of the best players on the pitch.

The Shawcross injury seems long behind him now.

Giroud (@_OlivierGiroud_) scored and had another fine performance. Cazorla (@19SCazorla) was creating space to beat the band.

The out of favour Podolski (@Podolski10) also made the most of his first start of the year by bagging a brace.

And is it just me, or is Rosický looking great out there? Definitely one of the unsung regulars who is constantly injecting a bit of much needed pace.

This afternoon, we look to finish off Fenerbahçe (@Fenerbahce) and progress to the group stage of Champions League play, having dominating the first playoff leg in Turkey with an 0-3 result.

If you have yet to figure it out, Gooner talk will usually preface these fantasy posts.

Week Two was generally positive, albeit somewhat lackluster after a great Saturday.

I moved up in both games but the scoreless result between United (@ManUtd) and Chelsea (@chelseafc) caused me to fall a little by Monday evening.

How great was it to see Cardiff (@CardiffCityFC) get the best of City (@MCFC)?


Here’s how I made out:



Total Points: 131

Global: 273,169
Fans of Arsenal: 8,704
Canada: 2,224

Private League: 3 / 16 (12 pts out of 1st)

Private League II: 3 / 6 (60 pts out of 1st)

Gained a little in the official game and slipped in the Yahoo! version.

I can never seem to get the best out of that traitorous scum van Persie (@Persie_Official) in the fantasy game.

I tend to miss him when he scores big and pick him when he does nothing.

Talk about a failed captain pick.. he gave me a total of 2 points!

I also overspent on Shaw (@Luke_shaw3) thinking the Saints (@SouthamptonFC) would have the clean sheet locked up.

I’ll get ’em next week!

How’d you do in Gameweek 2?
