Rank #5: 5: Week 6: The sky looks Gray and Stormzy #FPL 18/19
66.66% of The Gaffers are here to talk you through the Fantasy Football this week.

The Wan-Bissaka bandwagon has started rolling again and old favourites like Lukaku and Murray are also back in favour. There is, of course, a social media roundup, a big decision for Little Timmy Tinker and we definitely won’t be announcing that we have signed a book deal or that Craig has started secret liaisons with a famous rapper’s girlfriend.
