Fifteen gameweeks into the Premier League season and two managers have smashed through the 1,000 point barrier.

Kudos to Ryan Sweeney and Simon Evans who are respectively on 1,003 and 1,001 points, first and second in the overall standings.

Only two players, out of 3,597,174 are currently on four figures, which shows just what an impressive achievement this is.

Using this rather impressive Fantasy Premier League statistical site we can break down the two teams to see how they got to such a lofty position in the overall standings.

Below are the key statistics surrounding Ryan Sweeney’s “VAC BANNED” side:

In retrospect, some of the captain choices are inspired. Vardy five times was a genius move. Similarly Lukaku thrice. Only one captain choice has not come off for Sweeney.

Eight points hits for managers who don’t like to lose on transfers is also telling.

Simon Evans’ “Barcafellova” current squad is below.

Key to Evans form is the fact that he has played all three chips and majorly kicked on when he bagged 75 points from Sergio Aguero as triple captain in Gameweek 8.

As a result, Barcafellova jumped up massively in the standings and you have to wonder whether any triple captain played later on in the season will improve on Sergio Aguero’s five-goal haul v Newcastle.

Intriguing also to note how Evans has captained Aleksandr Kolarov five times, with generally good results. Certainly an improvement on the gambles with Payet and Cech.

Undoubtedly, what shines through from these two managers and the FPL game as a whole, its all about how you use your captain!
