The success of many fantasy players in the opening two game weeks had the foundation of deadly duo Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sergio Aguero.  Game week 3 taught us it doesn't have to be all about them.

Let's take a look at our NMA teams of the week for game week 3

Official Fantasy Football FPL

Papa won the week with 3 clean sheets and 5 goals.  The Raheem Sterling pick was a great example of taking notice of a players changing and picking up the player ASAP.  Had Mahrez scored his penalty and captain Kun scored at least once it could have been a huge week.

I'm interested to know Papa, did you use a free transfer to bring in Sterling this week or have you held him previously?  Will you also be selling Vardy or Mahrez during the international break?

First up and what is the first thing you notice looking at our winners?  That's right they are KUNLESS!

It was Bold as brass not to pick him playing at home to a West Ham side struggling for form and with injuries.  Raja though did have city cover with Raja's side coming up with that Sterling selection.   His last minute second goal of the game helped Raja win this week.  I wonder if Sterling will now be a fantasy favourite of yours for a few seasons to come.

Raja also has the game's top player Curtis "The Phantom" Davies.  This guy is incredible so far this season.

Clean Sheets missed the Sterling pick but it mattered not as he chose Alexis Sanchez instead.  When Arsenal get on top of a team they play some fantastic free flowing football and Alexis scored and assisted in a typical high energy performance.

Papa Jahat, Team_Raja_Awais and Clean Sheets we hope you can put a comment or two below to tell us your thoughts and take your applause.  Bravo.

As for me?

Fantrax 59 points - yes fifty effing nine!!!!!!   I didn't follow my own advice about Zlatan, Ignored all the evidence by picking Harry Kane but on the whole I think my side was ok, just for the second week in a row it didn't click.  Willy, Zabaleta, Amat, Targett, Townsend, Hazard, Tadic, Januzaj, Kun, Kane and Zlatan.  Sat in 117th place I've had the worst start to a season I can remember but hope to change that starting in week 4.

FPL 61pts.  When our league highest was 70pts it means gameweek 2 was a good one for me.  A starting 11 of Foster, Evans, Valencia, Stones, Williams, Theo, Hazard, Townsend, Redmond, Kun and Vardy saw me score 4 clean sheets, 1 assist and 2 goals.   It puts me in 55th place in the Beat The Bloggers league which is the best start I have had in this format of fantasy football in a long time.  I also have 2 free transfers for week 4 and intended to use both.  With the possible bans to Kun and Andre Gray alone with injuries to my Boro players I could yet use the wildcard instead.

Well done again to our weekly champions.  How did you score in game week 3?
