Much of last week's column was spent bigging up Manchester City so it was Sod's Law that they would slip up at home to West Ham, the Premier League's specialist giantkillers.
Upsets happen in any sport of course - it's why we love it really - and simply put there's absolutely nothing you can do about them.
But what we crave in Fantasy Premier League is reliability and, regardless of which team you support, it's been unnerving to see the reigning Premier League champions Chelsea start the season in such uncharacteristically poor fashion.
The Blues got back to winning ways last time out though and could it be that they have reached a turning point? Title winners don't turn into bad teams in the space of a few months and we can surely expect the Chelsea machine to click into gear soon.
And the good news is that with many of their star names stuttering through the first six games there could be savings to be made if choosing to invest in one of Stamford Bridge's finest. Here are a few to consider...
Thibaut Courtois was one of the finest keepers in the Premier League last season and was a popular choice ahead of the 2015-16 campaign. It hasn't gone well, however, with the Belgian sent off in the opener and only managing two more games before a knee injury knocked him out of action until December.
That has made an opening for Asmir Begovic and the former Stoke stopper looks a decent option at £5m. Everyone expected the Bosnian to warm the bench but he's got an opportunity and we expect him to grab it with two gloved hands!
We're used to seeing John Terry dominating the defence just ahead of Courtois but the season has begun very badly for the former England man. Terry has featured in just 278 minutes of Chelsea's Premier League season but the Blues have conceded eight times when he has been on the pitch. An option then is Kurt Zouma, who has played the entirety of Chelsea's last four matches having replaced Terry at halftime in the 3-0 defeat at Manchester City.
The team looks more settled in midfield with new signing Pedro performing pretty well through his opening four games, scoring once and assisting twice. Eden Hazard has not kicked into gear yet, but it is surely a matter of time, and it should be noted that the Belgian begun the 2014-15 campaign slowly too with just one goal through his first six games. He should match the 14 goals achieved last season.
A riskier purchase would be Oscar but we might see more of the Brazilian following his return to first team duties last weekend having missed the four games since the season opener.
Diego Costa's three-game ban offers Fantasy managers the chance to make short-term gains upfront but do we plump for Falcao or Loic Remy?
Costa only misses two games - this weekend's trip to Newcastle, and next Saturday's visit of Southampton - and he will doubtless return to first team action after that.
Remy is the more experienced Premier League performer, was a midweek scorer at Walsall in the Capital One Cup and has talked a good game in the press so the Frenchman looks the likelier of the two to start, but scan the media before taking the plunge.
