10 Highlights of Gameweek 29
1. Set-Piece Kings
Just went all in at 11:28am. Sanchez IN for a hit and captain. Only time will tell whether this was genius or stupid. #FPL

Craig Dawson scored a brace to claim 3 BPs. A goal from Alexis Sánchez was enough to earn him 2 BPs, while Hal Robson-Kanu’s goal could only earn him a single BP.

2. Rock Solid Crystal
— Ango (@PilotAng) March 16, 2017
Mamadou Sakho helped keep a clean sheet to earn himself max BPs. James Tomkins had to settle for 2 BPs, while Troy Deeney kept scoring, only this time for the wrong team.
Sakho was really a class signing. He also saved my FPL team this week.

#LFC not picking Sakho, but I certainly can in my Fantasy Football.

Deeney into the fantasy football side was an inspired choice I must say… #FantasyFootball

Romelu Lukaku left it late, but ended up with a brace, an assist and 3 BPs. Enner Valencia came on to score and assist, earning 2 BPs. Another Everton clean sheet will have pleased plenty of FPL managers.
Middlesbrough have now scored 20 Premier League goals. Just one behind Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

4. The Blue Machine
— FPL_Fly🔻 (@FPL_Fly) March 18, 2017
Willian scored the opener to take home 3 BPs. David Luiz managed an assist to nail down 2 BPs, while Marcos Alonso took 1 BP from his assist. No returns for the popular Diego Costa, even strong attempts to jinx.
I’ve owned Diego Costa in 3 GWs.
Gw20 v Spurs (2 points)
Gw21 doesn’t play (China/injury)
Gw29 v Stoke (1 point, yellow card)

5. Keeper’s Paradise
Tom Heaton and Jordan Pickford was on show as they both kept the sheet clean, earning 3 BPs. John O’Shea and Ben Mee took a BP each from the clean sheet.
If only I kept Heaton as my FPL keeper pic.twitter.com/5vidzsRDx2

Got Pickford and Heaton on bench
There should be a chip in which both gk should play 😉😉
— FPL_Guy 😎 (@ShahmoonAliShah) March 18, 2017
Tom Heaton is a god damn #FPL points machine. Another clean sheet, more save points and on for all three bonus points too as it stands

6. Champions On a Roll
Fuck it Jamie Vardy is in my FPL team and captain, expect a madness against West Ham
— Elliot (@ElliotsTweets) March 18, 2017
Manuel Lanzini scored a brilliant free kick to claim max BPs. A goal and an assist from Jamie Vardy earned him 2 BPs, while Riyad Mahrez’s goal earned him a single BP.
Everytime I look at my team my eyes go straight to lanzini, sitting with 10 points on the bench 🙈#fpl

7. Cherries Squash Swans
Benik Afobe both scored and assisted to nail down all 3 BPs. Joshua King continued his form with an assist and 2 BPs, while the popular Gylfi Sigurdsson ended up with a rare blank.
— Mark Yates (@myates84) March 18, 2017
My wildcard squad has both Mawson and Deeney, scoring -1 between them thanks to own goals 😂⚽️ #FPL
— FPL advice ⚽️ (@FPLchampion) March 18, 2017
Have Mawson and Deeney in my team 😭#FPL
— Andy Sime (@AndySime92) March 18, 2017
Lukaku captain and Afobe. #fpl ⬆🔝

8. Devils’ Flow
Jesse Lingard scored a wondergoal to take home all 3 BPs. Juan Mata assisted to nail down 2 BPs, while Antonio Valencia scored a goal to appear on the radar for Utd’s upcoming doubles.
— FPL_Fly🔻 (@FPL_Fly) March 19, 2017
Oh and Fellaini is in my #FPL team
— Einzelganger (@Makazkev) March 19, 2017
Was 0.1 away from getting Valencia in. That went to 0.2 last night. Will be 0.3 unless I act fast. Annoying. #fpl

9. Wounded Spurs Lift Off
— Piyush Mufc Sharma (@hazenfrog) March 19, 2017
James Ward-Prowse scored a goal to earn himself 3 strong BPs. Christian Eriksen scored the opener to take home 2 BPs, while Dele Alli could not take any BPs from his converted penalty.
Ward-Prowse 3 BPS helps nobody.. just give them to Eriksen!

Took a (-4) for Alli & Sanchez as I couldn’t decide which one to bring in. 😎👌#FPL

10. A Premier League Classic
Kevin de Bruyne assisted beautifully to secure 3 BPs. James Milner’s converted penalty saw him earn 2 BPs, while Sergio Agüero could not take home any BPs after scoring the equalizer.
Bonus system is a joke…both alli and aguero score and neither get a single bps
The system needs changing!! #fpl
— Joanne Mayhew (@plug_in_baby_x) March 19, 2017
Did these fuckwits just give 3 bps to De Bruyne? One decent low cross, otherwise useless.
— FPL Ruined My Life (@FPLBollocks) March 19, 2017
Now how the fuck does Klavan get 1 bonus?
Meanwhile Aguero, scorer of the tying goal is on 0…
— FPL Thunshot (@FPLThunshot) March 19, 2017
Firmino has a points return . This is not a drill
— FantasyFootballTalk (@FPLFantasyTalk) March 19, 2017
May the bonus points be ever in your favour.
