Hwang's Blanked Gameweek:

In Blank Gameweek 26, over 750,000 FPL managers faced disappointment as Hwang Hee-chan failed to score or assist despite his popularity. Managers brought him in en masse due to his impressive home performance record but were left with just three points as Wolverhampton Wanderers secured a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United.

Watkins Shines:

Ollie Watkins emerged as the second most-bought player, delivering a nine-point haul for Aston Villa with a goal and an assist against Nottingham Forest. With 29 attacking returns this season, Watkins has surpassed expectations and overtaken Salah as the top Fantasy player.

Saka's Consistency:

Bukayo Saka completed the top three recruits and captains, showcasing his best season yet with 169 points after 26 Gameweeks. His goal against Newcastle United extended his streak of hauls to five consecutive matches.

A record 365,000 FPL managers utilized their Free Hit chip in BGW26 to navigate fixture uncertainties, while 287,315 opted for their second Wildcard, preparing for upcoming Double Gameweek 28 and Blank Gameweek 29.

Haaland Dominates Captains:

Erling Haaland, despite a modest performance, remained the most-captained player, followed by Watkins and Saka. However, with just one goal in his last three outings, managers may reconsider his captaincy in the future.

Top Sells and Captains Among Top 100:

Jota, Porro, and Nunez were the most-sold players, reflecting their fixture absence, while Haaland dominated captains' choices among the top 100 managers.
