Top 100 Managers FPL Team Stats for GW2

The Top 100 Managers in the World had a VERY high AVG score of 89pts, with a good amount of top players scoring in the 80–100pt range. So, if you scored 80pts+ you should feel pretty good about your performance.

GW2 Performance Recap and Overall Stats

We had all of our teams score above the AVG for GW16, but we had a pretty low score compared to Top100 Managers, so not a great week for us. We tried to divercify our captain by having Haaland in one team and Salah on the other, but sadly Salah missed the penalty before he scored the rebound, and did not return as much as he could have if he had just scored it.
