Newcastle United defender Matt Targett reportedly made 114 changes to his Fantasy Premier League team ahead of the latest matchweek.
The Premier League took a break over the last two weeks as international football took centre stage.
However, as the Premier League made its long-awaited return this weekend, FPL managers up and down the land have been busy choosing their starting elevens.
For the latest game week, Targett has gone for Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah as his captain. Which turned out to be a good decision as he provided two assists during Liverpool’s 3-1 comeback win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
Targett also decided to use his wildcard, which allows him to make an unlimited number of changes.
The Newcastle man started making changes on September 3 at 9:54pm, which was to take out Luke Shaw for Destiny Udogie.

Targett’s last substitution was made on September 16 at 10:47am, which is just 13 minutes away from the deadline.
The transfer was Rodrigo coming in for John McGinn.
Other transfers included bringing in the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Anthony Elanga, Ollie Watkins, Leon Bailey and teammates Sven Botman, Harvey Barnes and Kieran Trippier.
Last month, Liverpool superstar Salah was asked about his own FPL team ahead of the season.
When asked who will get the most goals for his team, Salah said: “I have to choose myself.”
The Egyptian was then asked who will get the most assists, he said: “Myself and De Bruyne.”
When asked for his top three picks, Salah replied: “Myself, Alisson and it's a tricky one between Robbo [Andy Robertson] and Trent [Alexander-Arnold]. I'm not choosing because they play for Liverpool. They're just always in my team.”
