FPL 2023-24 – Form Players Ahead Of Gameweek 2


A number of players enjoyed a profitable Gameweek 1 individually, whether that be from an attacking or defensive perspective. This will have done wonders for their confidence and such momentum can bode well for them going into Gameweek 2. Therefore, we’ve picked out some of those in-form players ahead of the weekend.

One of four goalkeepers to keep a clean sheet in Gameweek 1, Fulham stopper Bernd Leno (£4.5m) recorded a whopping nine saves in his side’s 0-1 win away at Everton. Such a performance saw him earn 12 fantasy points, the only goalkeeper in Gameweek 1 to return a double-figure haul of points. Leno’s confidence will no doubt be high and as Fulham get ready to host Brentford in a Gameweek 2 West London Derby, the German is well worth a look for FPL managers.

It’s always vital for a player to make a good start at their new club, doing so can prove a real catalyst moving forward. That’s exactly what midfielder James Maddison (£7.5m) did in his Premier League debut for Spurs in Gameweek 1, laying on two assists in a 2-2 draw against Brentford, picking up 9 FPL points in the process. New Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou has clearly afforded the former Leicester star plenty of responsibility and an in-form Maddison desperate to make a good first impression in front of his new home crowd in Gameweek 2 vs Man Utd makes for an enticing fantasy asset.

Another goal scorer on debut was Aston Villa’s Moussa Diaby (£6.0m). The attacking midfielder was deployed almost as a second striker against Newcastle in Gameweek 1 and impressed despite a heavy defeat. His FPL potential looks very high moving forward and when considering his small midfielder price-tag, Diaby’s early-season form makes him a potential bargain.

The two early form strikers following the opening weekend of the season do battle in Gameweek 2 at the Etihad Stadium. Erling Haaland (£14.0m) of Man City and Newcastle’ Alexander Isak (£7.6m) were the only two players to score twice over the course of Gameweek 1 and both are clearly brimming with confidence. Their respective qualities should see each fashion opportunities to increase their respective tallies in Gameweek 2 and thus, their fantasy point-returns.
