The international break is here which means Championship football is on hold for now. With that in mind we look back and reflect on the top 10 GAFFR picks so far whilst also finding out how they earned their points.
Looking back at the top 10 GAFFR picks so far can be extremely useful for managers as a lot of these players may well have gone under their radar. It may also help with long-term planning in terms of boost usage, transfers and captaincy.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – 92 points
Leicester have been brilliant so far this season and the gap in quality between them and the rest of the league is becoming more and more visible by the week. The Foxes sit first in the league after 10 wins in 11 games and have netted 23 times in the process.
One huge contributing factor towards the Leicester form is midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (£7.9m). He sits as the highest scoring player in GAFFR so far with a huge 92. Most of his points come from five goals and three assists in 11 matches.
Jack Clarke – 89 points
It looks like Sunderland are gaining momentum and could be in for another very strong season. They currently sit fourth in the league after securing six wins, one draw, four losses but an impressive 20 goals scored.
Arguably one of the Championship’ best players so far its midfielder Jack Clarke (€9.2m) who is the second highest scoring player in the game. Clarke sits on a whopping 89 points mainly due to his seven goals in 11 matches.
Gabriel Sara – 77 points
Norwich will be hoping to have a much better season this time around. So far they rank seventh in the Championship table after winning five, drawing two and losing four. Defensively things need to improve after conceding 19 goals already but offensively they look good scoring 21 goals.
The standout Norwich attacker is Gabriel Sara (£7.8m) who has already amassed a cool 77 points in GAFFR so far. Sara has been instrumental for the Norwich frontline and we can see that in the fact he has bagged three goals, three assists and plenty of bonus points.
John Swift – 76 points
West Brom currently sit two places behind ninth place which is where they finished last season. However, the Baggies will be hoping to do much better than that and they are on the right path as they have won two of their last three matches.
Although West Brom have plenty of quality in their squad they seem to rely on midfielder John Swift (£10.2m). Swift is the fourth highest scoring player in GAFFR and most of his 76 points were helped by six goals and one assist.
Jonathan Rowe – 75 points
The fact Norwich are scoring plenty of goals means that some of their attacking assets have become some of the best in the game and we can see that with two of their midfielders making the top 10 scoring players in the game.
Jonathan Rowe comes in at the budget friendly price-tag of just £4.9m. It is surprising that a player this cheap has achieved 75 points but fantasy managers love a bargain. The majority of Rowe’ points come from six goals, one assist and a hatful of bonus points.
Who else makes the top 10?
- Leif Davis (£5.2m) – Ipswich has been absolutely brilliant this season sitting second in the league and winning nine of their first 11 matches. Davis has been the most successful GAFFR defender in the league so far with 72 points due to his five assists, three full clean sheets and several half clean sheets.
- Adam Armstrong (£10.1m) – The newly relegated side will be hoping to get a quick return back to the top tier this season. That however hasn’t played out so far as they are 10th in the league. One of their top strikers is Armstrong who has mustered up 70 points with the help of seven goals and one assist.
- Sammie Szmodics (£6.6m) – It has been a very tough start to the season for Blackburn after losing their star striker in the summer. Rovers dwell deep in the table at 17th but they have had one shining light. Midfielder Szmodics has accumulated 67 points from seven goals and two assists so far this campaign.
- Conor Chaplin (£6.6m) – Ipswich may sit second in the division but one of the biggest reasons for that is their free-scoring attackers. One of them is striker Conor Chaplin who so far has banked 66 points after scoring five goals and creating two assists.
- Ryan Hardie (£5.8m) – Another promoted side having an exciting start to the season is Plymouth. Although they sit 18th they have scored 18 goals and conceded 19 making their games a fantastic watch for football fans. Some of their 18 goals come from striker Hardie who has converted five and created three assists meaning he matches Chaplin’s 66 points.
