FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 2 Highest Scorers


With Gameweek 2 of this season’s Fantasy Premier League having come to an end, we take a look at those players who ended at the top of the table in terms of most FPL points gained.

Bryan Mbeumo (£6.6m) – 16 Points
As opposed to last season when he was listed as a forward, Bryan Mbeumo has been listed by FPL as a midfielder for 2023-24 and owners are already cashing in. After scoring a goal and 7 points in Gameweek 1, Mbeumo has backed this up with the highest Gameweek 2 score of any player within the FPL player-base, netting 16 points away to Fulham. Mbeumo scored twice, including a second goal of the season from the penalty spot as Brentford defeated their local rivals by three goals to nil. With Ivan Toney suspended, Mbeumo should prove an extremely popular fantasy asset in the weeks ahead.

Solly March (£6.6m) – 15 Points
The second highest FPL score of Gameweek 2 also came from a midfielder, in this case Brighton’s Solly March who like Mbeumo, bagged a brace in his second league fixture of the season, a second consecutive victory for the Seagulls by four goals to one, this time away at Wolves. March’s ownership has been small compared to that of teammate and fellow winger Kaoru Mitoma, but 15 fantasy points in Gameweek 2 to go alongside his 9 points on the opening weekend gave another timely reminder of his FPL prowess.

Leon Bailey (£5.5m) – 14 Points
Midfielders make up the entire top three highest scorers of Gameweek 2, with Leon Bailey rounding off the list. The Aston Villa winger was substituted at half-time by Unai Emery in his side’s 5-1 defeat against Newcastle in Gameweek 1 and can’t have been happy at the decision. Having been given a second starting opportunity vs Everton this past Sunday, Bailey made the most of it, setting up Aston Villa’s first goal after just 18 minutes, before getting on the scoresheet himself in the second-half. Villa ended up winning 4-0 with Bailey accumulating 14 FPL points. Of the top three Gameweek 2 scorers from a fantasy perspective, Bailey is by far the lesser owned of the three, underlining his differential appeal moving forward.
