An attacking line-up for Hamad Alzwayed delivered a hefty 130 points in Fantasy Premier League for Gameweek 2 to win Manager of the Week.
Ten of his 11 starters produced either a goal or an assist. But his decision to invest in the Cardiff City defence also paid off.
The Bluebirds’ Joe Bennett (£4.5m) delivered a crucial eight-point haul in the first match of the Gameweek.
Along with a clean sheet in the goalless draw at home to Newcastle United, the left-back picked up two bonus points.
Rich rewards from rearguard
Even Hamad’s goalkeeper, Ederson (£5.5m), earned an assist.
The Brazilian supplied the long pass for the first of his captain Sergio Aguero’s (£11.1m) three goals against Huddersfield Town.
Defensive big-hitters Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.6m) were both on the scoresheet in home wins over Fulham and Arsenal respectively.
And The Cottagers’ Ryan Sessegnon (£6.4m) helped deny Trippier’s Tottenham Hotspur a clean sheet by providing his side’s assist in the 3-1 defeat.
Hamad’s only transfer for Gameweek 2 was an inspired one.
He bought Sadio Mane (£9.8m) to replace the injured Kevin De Bruyne (£9.8m).
Mane combined with Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) for a further 19 points at Crystal Palace on Monday evening.
And Hamad could also rely upon Richarlison (£6.7m), Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) and Troy Deeney (£6.0m) for goals as his squad climbed inside the top 10,000 places.
As the manager who scored the highest points in Gameweek 2 without making use of a chip, Hamad wins a copy of FIFA 19, a Nike Merlin match ball and an FPL rucksack and mug.
