The Alternative EPL Table: Week 6

Last season I devised a method to calculate an alternative – and more accurate! – Premier League table. The inaugural version, which can be found here, correctly stated that Chelsea’s current position at the time (4th) was undervaluing them, whilst Manchester City’s (1st) was also misleading.

Goalkeepers Nick Pope (BRN) – If you kept faith in “the Pope” last weekend away at Liverpool, he rewarded you handsomely with 11.25pts. With an easier match-up at home to come next versus Huddersfield, you can be more optimistic that the young goalie will come up with another clean sheet. It is

FPL Draft GW5: Playing the Waiver Wire
