We have a new fantasy football points leader

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been leading the official Premier League fantasy football scoreboard for much of the season. The Belgian superstar has an incredible 10 assists and two goals in the first 10 games of the new campaign.

Though his assist for David Silva’s strike against Aston Villa on Saturday is the only goal involvement De Bruyne has had in October – he was absent during their 2-0 loss at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers after the international break.

Kevin De Bruyne is on a whopping 72 fantasy points this season – that’s an average of 7.2 per gameweek, or 8.0 for every game he has played this season. Even with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus around him, he’s a very good choice for your captain or vice-captain each and every week.

However, the former Chelsea man was displaced as the top points scorer this season, when Jamie Vardy netted a hat-trick in Leicester City’s EPL co-record 9-0 thrashing of Southampton at St Mary’s on Friday night. The striker also registered an assist in the game.

Vardy now has nine goals and three assists on the season, as well as 13 bonus points on the season. He is currently valued at 9.1 and may be a very popular choice for fantasy football managers to transfer into their side ahead of the Foxes trip to Crystal Palace next Sunday.
