A bold decision was behind Jack Hurrell landing the Fantasy Premier League Manager of the Week for Gameweek 6.

The Englishman's team, Dom can't cook, scored 103 points thanks to a left-field captaincy choice.

Twenty-eight of those points came as a result of giving Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) the armband.

Manager of the Week GW6

The Manchester City midfielder scored, provided an assist and was awarded the maximum three bonus points as Pep Guardiola's side won 5-0 at Cardiff City.

Silva was captained by only 4,646 Fantasy managers, making him a major differential for those who took the plunge.

His team-mates Ederson (£5.7m) and Leroy Sane (£9.2m) returned six points apiece.

Reds rearguard

Jack also doubled up on Liverpool defenders for their home match with Southampton.

The Reds won 3-0 and his picks delivered more than just clean-sheet points.

Joel Matip (£4.9m) scored and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.1m) produced an assist.

There were also solid returns up front.

Striker success

A first goal in three Gameweeks for Harry Kane (£12.4m) brought in nine points.

A fifth strike of the season from Fulham's in-form Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.9m) added another eight to Jack's total.

He also profited from a second consecutive goal for Leicester City midfielder James Maddison (£6.7m) in the Foxes' 3-1 win over Huddersfield Town.

As the manager with the highest score among those not using any of their chips, Jack wins a copy of FIFA 19, a Nike Merlin match ball and an FPL rucksack and mug.
