The leading FPL player's team is insane, he smashed everyone else in the world

The leading FPL player's team is insane, he smashed everyone else in the world

Andrew Rogers racked up 119 points in the first week, smashing the average score of 57.

The world's leading FPL player accrued a massive 119 points in the first Premier League gameweek after getting a number of big calls right.

The average score from week one in Fantasy Football was 57 points but Andrew Rodgers and his 'Real Social Dad' side smashed everyone else.

8,441,535 played FPL in the first weekend of Premier League action and Rodgers sits pretty at the top thanks to some shrewd decisions.

He went for it straight from the off by triple captaining Erling Haaland in what proved to an absolute masterstroke.

Manchester City's No.9 immediately hit the ground running on his Premier League debut by bagging a brace as City ran out 2-0 winners away at West Ham.

With bonus points factored in, Haaland earned Rodgers a whopping 39 points and his price has had a slight rise after just one game.

His other strikers, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Darwin Nunez, also did the business - and the goal for vice-captain Mo Salah meant he got 42 points from the Fulham-Liverpool game.

Arsenal pair Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Martinelli got him 20 points after combining for the first goal of the season, while Southampton skipper James Ward-Prowse found the net to bring another nine points.

Ivan Perisic and Philippe Coutinho scored low but Kieran Trippier and Edouard Mendy both got seven points each for a clean sheet.

Rodgers didn't have Gabriel Jesus in his side, who was the most-picked player in FPL history going into Arsenal's clash with Crystal Palace.

However, his blank meant that hundreds rushed to sell the Brazilian after just one game.

If he claims the manager of the week award, Rodgers will take home a slew of prizes including: noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones, a copy of FIFA 23, a Nike flight match ball, FPL rucksack and FPL mug.
