The Bonus Points

It was no surprise that Junior Stanislas (£5.5m) earned maximum Fantasy Premier League bonus points in AFC Bournemouth's 6-1 defeat of Hull City.

The Cherries midfielder registered two goals and two assists, recording Saturday's highest Bonus Points System (BPS) score of 68. 

But in an emphatic victory, it was a mark of AFC Bournemouth's all-round display that their defenders took home the remaining bonus returns.

Raiding left-back Charlie Daniels (£4.9m) recorded a BPS total of 42 from a goal and an assist for two additional points.

Steve Cook's (£4.9m) BPS tally of 36 came from a goal and 20 clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) – a total unsurpassed by any other defender on the day and second for the Gameweek. 

The ICT Index

Stanislas dominated Saturday's ICT Index, topping the overall charts with a hefty 21.5.

In all-round attacking display he produced five attempts on goal, with three inside the box and a trio of efforts on target. The winger also supplied three key passes and five crosses.

Daniels also caught the eye, recording 13.1 in the ICT Index on the back of three penalty-area touches and two shots from inside the box. He completed more successful passes (12) in the final third than any home player at Vitality Stadium.

Cook collected third spot, scoring 12.6 in the ICT Index.

The centre-half produced three efforts, with two inside the box and a couple of attempts on target on his way to netting for the first time this season.

The Scout Notes

After a slow start to the season, Eddie Howe's men appear to have finally hit their stride.

Unbeaten in three, they have won their last three home matches conceding just a single goal in the process. 

The Gameweek 9 visit of Tottenham Hotspur will provide a huge test, but with Sunderland at home and Middlesbrough and Stoke City away to follow that, investment in AFC Bournemouth assets looks set to rise.

Defender Adam Smith (£4.7m) has been the only Cherries player enjoying double-digit percentage ownership this season, but form and fixtures could change matters.

Stanislas now boasts three goals and a trio of assists in as many matches. He has produced attacking points in each of those fixtures and his status as the club's primary penalty-taker boosts the appeal of a player who sits in a mere 0.6% of FPL squads.

Similary, striker Callum Wilson (£6.4m) has now scored in three of the last five Gameweeks, yet is owned by less than 3% of managers.

After an encouraging start to the campaign, Hull City have now conceded 17 times in four matches.

Mike Phelan's side have an attractive set of fixtures to come – six of the next seven involve matches with a Fixture Difficulty Ranking of 2 or less – but their form must improve dramatically if they are to take advantage.

Aside from Robert Snodgrass (£5.7m) as an option in midfield, FPL interest in the Tigers' ranks looks somewhat limited.
