The biggest talking point of Gameweek 15 is to forever be remembered as the ‘Rico Theory’. It was either the rank saviour or annihilator. The bases of the ‘Rico Theory’ is that in an uninspiring match a defender must do enough to register substantial bps (including but not limited to goals, assists, chance creation, crosses, key passes, pass completion, successful dribbles, successful tackles) whilst simultaneously doing so little that they get subbed before their clean sheet dreams are shattered, hence optimising their bonus point potential as defensive errors are seen as a big no-no.
AFC Bournemouth left back, Diego Rico (self proclaimed ‘Rico Theory’ influencer) spent the night before the match studying this theory, he was primed, and didn’t he execute with precision. Schlupp scored for Crystal Palace on the 76th minute to give The Eagles the advantage, 1-0. Little did unsuspecting managers know that Rico had done the math and executed the ‘Rico Theory’ during the 64th minute. You cheeky devil, you. As Rico was originally a £4m enabling defender, he naturally occupies 3rd spot on my bench, rarely getting a run on. However, due to festive season congestion and out right blindside tactics by some legitimate EPL managers, Rico managed to weasel his way into the starting lineup of many FPL managers teams to supply them with his substantial 9 points (1 clean, 3 bonus). One such manager is The Hammer, and to that I say: “well played sir, well played.” .
