Catch up on how the FPL Experts Panel team is getting on after leaving the captaincy on the league's top scorer for three Gameweeks in a row

How have you fared against the Fantasy Premier League experts over the last three Gameweeks?

The FPL Experts Panel team is run by some of the best Fantasy managers in the world.

They scored 170 points over Gameweeks 14-16, moving up 28,769 places in the overall standings.

The captain’s armband remained with Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) for the entire three-Gameweek period.

Leicester City's forward duly rewarded the experts with 48 points, courtesy of four goals and three bonus points.

The experts also kept faith with Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) despite a hip injury forcing him to miss the Gameweek 14 loss to West Ham United.

Their patience was repaid with a 12-point haul in Chelsea's Gameweek 15 victory over Aston Villa. The striker delivered a goal and an assist.

In addition, the experts gained double-figure hauls from Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m), and Sadio Mane (£12.3m) over the last three rounds of fixtures.

Meanwhile Jack Grealish (£6.0m) is proving to be a shrewd acquisition. Signed ahead of Gameweek 13, the Aston Villa captain has amassed 23 points for the experts so far.

The team has now moved up to 717,987 overall. It is ranked 18,646 out of 47,436 teams in the "Beat the FPL Panel" mini-league.

Taking over from Hutomo Murray at the top of the mini-league is Khaled Talaat from Egypt.

Khaled’s team, KT-FC®, took the lead in Gameweek 15 following an impressive 82 points. Marcus Rashford (£8.9m), James Maddison (£7.7m), and Mane contributed double-digit hauls, together with nine-point returns from both Dele Alli (£8.7m) and Danny Ings (£6.3m).

The Egyptian manager boldly put form before fixtures by choosing to captain Rashford ahead of the Manchester derby. He was rewarded with a goal and the maximum three bonus points.

Khaled is up to 15th overall in the world.
