As the international break keeps rolling on, it has been pretty slow. For me, all I have been doing is winning EVERY hockey pick (3 in a row!). Now though, we are eleven games into the season which means it's time to talk about what players have let down the masses and have been nothing short of duds. Of course, if we miss anyone let us know by tweeting us at DST_Tweets!
Alexis Sánchez (M): Arsenal F.C.
Total Points: 30 pts
Going into the season, I said IF he stayed at Arsenal, Alexis Sánchez would be one of the best midfielders in FPL this season; I was completely and utterly wrong. I mean, he looks like a human who hates his job and is just trying not to get injured so he can leave in January or for free in the summer. Yes, many players aren't doing as well as they should but the worst thing about Sanchez is, he is hindering the peak performance of other players. The reason I thought he would be amazing is because I expected Mesut Özil to have a bounce-back year and Alexandre Lacazette was going to come in and be a top five striker, but with their main man playing like shit, every player in suffering. If I were Wenger I would get him out ASAP, and if I owned him, I would drop him INSTANTLY.
Other Options (Around Same Price Range): Christian Eriksen, Leroy Sane, Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah.
Willian (M): Chelsea F.C.
Total Points: 28
It seems like the era of Willian at Stamford Bridge is over as over time he has been getting more and more pushed out of the first team. When it comes to incredible and breathe taking talent, Willian is up there with the best, and sadly, Antonio Conte doesn't see it as he has eleven appearances in the Premier League with five starts and six substitutions. His numbers are even worse than his starting record as he has ONE assist and a sub 75% passing percentage, and there are enough wide-men in this league to jump ship and drop this loser.
Other Options (Around Same Price Range): Richarlison, Aaron Ramsey, Pascal Groß
Gylfi Sigurðsson (M): Everton F.C.
Total Points: 18
I mean, honestly, there are about 20 people at Everton that can be on this list, as after their incredible spending spree in the summer people were calling Ronald Koeman a genius and said Everton could battle the top six clubs, and guess what? No, they fucking can't! They have eleven points on the season as all of their main men besides maybe Wayne Rooney have stunk up the place! The reason I picked Gylfi was the hype around him, after an amazing season with Swansea, everyone was talking about him, I even saw Spurs fans saying they wanted him back. With the already small number of Everton players you would want, many people looked at him to be their gem in their midfield in FPL. Now he has dropped to under 3% owned as him, and Everton are completely and utterly fucked.
Other Options (Around Same Price Range): Sterling, Richarlison, Mkhitaryan, and Ritchie
