Rodrigo of Leeds celebrates his goal

Fantasy Premier League 22/23 game week 2 has finally concluded – but who were the best performing players in this round of fixtures?

Game week 2 treated Premier League fans to some fantastic games. We had yet another ‘Battle of the Bridge’ when we saw Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea in what was a fiery affair that saw both Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte sent off following a tasty handshake at the final whistle.

We also saw Manchester United take another fatal blow in their start to the 22/23 season. They were thrashed by Brentford 4-0, with all goals coming in the first half. Talk about getting stung by the bees.

Great games have also meant players have scored a great number of points this week. So who were the top performers in Fantasy Premier League Game Week 2? Find out below.

5 – Dean Henderson

GW2 Points: 14

Dean Henderson had a phenomenal home debut for Nottingham Forest at the weekend. He kept a clean sheet, saved a penalty and got all three bonus points. Ironic that David De Gea dropped a disaster-class when Henderson did this in the same weekend – classic Manchester United.


4 – Kevin De Bruyne

GW2 Points: 14

One of the FPL big boys had a sublime GW2. Kevin De Bruyne was at his very best against Bournemouth and scored the pick of the goals in a 4-0 rout. He’ll only go from strength to strength this year and he’s someone you should be thinking about getting into your side if you can afford him.


3 – Jose Sa

GW2 Points: 15

Similarly to Henderson, Jose Sa completed the hat-trick of a clean sheet, saved a penalty and all three bonus points – however as Sa wasn’t carded he sits one point higher on 15. Fantastic performance from the Portuguese shot stopper.


2 – Rodrigo

Rodrigo has started the 22/23 season at full pelt, and this has earned him the title of the highest total points scorer in the entirety of FPL 22/23 thus far. He got two goals and all three bonus points against Southampton at the weekend.


1 – Gabriel Jesus

GW2 Points: 19

This man announced himself to FPL 22-23 this week. He was sublime against Leicester and picked up a brace of goals and assists. He once again picked up all three bonus points which saw him sit on a mightily fine 19 points for GW2.
