It's hard for me to remember a time when Fernando Torres (Bambi) was a popular choice here at NMA. Over the past few seasons I cannot think of a another player who brings about a bigger reaction once announced he is this weeks striker choice on ANYONE'S team.
In order to determine this years team(s) who have the greatest number of high scoring "Fantasy" choices, we first need to determine what exactly is High Scoring? It is with that in mind that I give you this years preseason M.T.T. Barometer totals per team.
The numbers were tallied by taking "Bambi's" last season fantasy total of 199.50 points and breaking down each team into how many players scored MORE then that. To be as fair as possible, I also added players that (might) have scored more but were limited by overall games played. Their number will be listed in parentheses and will be PART of the OVERALL total.
Arsenal: 7 (2)
Aston Villa: 3 (2)
Chelsea: 12 (1) Includes Torres
Everton: 9 (2)
Fulham: 3 (1)
Liverpool: 8 (2)
Manchester City: 7 (2)
Manchester United: 7 (3)
Newcastle: 2 (1)
Norwich: 3 (2)
Southampton: 4 (1)
Stoke: ZERO (Zero)
Sunderland: 4 (1)
Swansea: 6 (2)
Tottenham: 5 (1)
West Brom:Zero (1)
West Ham: 5 (3)
Numbers reflect players CURRENT, and not last season's team. Example Lukaku is reflected in Chelsea's totals and not West Brom's.
Order of teams with the HIGHEST number of current players scoring more then Torres are as follows.
Chelsea/Everton/Liverpool/Arsenal/City/United/Swansea/Tottenham/West Ham/Sunderland/Southampton/Villa/Fulham/Norwich/Newcastle/West Brom/Stoke.
