The advantages of starting FPL in Gameweek 2

With a goal and clean sheet against West Bromwich AlbionTimothy Castagne (£5.5m) enjoyed an outstanding debut in Gameweek 1 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Leicester City full-back also claimed two bonus points, totalling 14 points at The Hawthorns.

Castagne was among five defenders to secure a place in the Kings of the Gameweek line-up, which scored 153 points in a 5-4-1 formation.

Arsenal’s new centre-back Gabriel (£5.0m) and Romain Saiss (£5.0m) of Wolverhampton Wanderers also each combined a goal with a clean sheet.

And FPL managers have flocked to the Gunners man on the back of his 15-point haul.

Gabriel is the most-bought defender in the Gameweek, earning over 190,000 transfers in for a home match with West Ham United.

Fearsome full-backs 

Lucas Digne (£6.0m) has also emerged as an early target for Everton’s home fixture against West Bromwich Albion.

The left-back has been bought by 105,000+ Fantasy managers after delivering an assist and clean sheet in the Toffees’ 1-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur.

Reece James (£5.0m) secured his place in the Dream Team in the final match of Gameweek 1.

Chelsea’s raiding right-back scored once and provided an assist in a 3-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion.
