The second weekend of the new Premier League season looks set to be another unpredictable one, with new managers and new players still adapting to the top flight.
But luckily for those of you who play fantasy football, we're going to try and help make things a little bit easier to predict this weekend by giving you three stars to include in your FanDuel lineups ahead of Gameweek 2.
The Football Republic have partnered with FanDuel for an exciting new fantasy football tournament every week this season, with weekly cash prizes up for grabs for the best fantasy managers each weekend.
You can take on OUR team by entering The Football Republic Challenge before Friday night's game between Manchester United and Southampton kicks off!
FanDuel's unique scoring system differentiates it from other fantasy football games, but the principles are still the same. You have £100 million to splash on a team of 11 players each week. Spend wisely, as these guys could be earning you real cash by the end of the week!
So, who should you be looking at selecting for Gameweek 2's matches?
Zlatan Ibrahimovic - £11.8m
Manchester United's star striker made a perfect start to life in the Premier League by scoring in last Sunday's 3-1 win over Bournemouth. He is the fourth-most expensive Forward option in FanDuel this weekend, but should be finding his way into your team ahead of his home league debut at Old Trafford.

Ibrahimovic picked up 35.25 points last weekend - the third-highest amount of any striker - and he is expected to build on that performance with an even better showing in front of his own fans on Friday night. Those who avoid Zlatan this weekend might regret it.
Dimitri Payet - £12.7m
West Ham's star man started Monday's game at Chelsea on the bench but made an immediate impact by helping the Hammers to equalise shortly after coming on. He racked up 9.25 points in his 28 minutes of action on opening weekend but looks set to start the club's first home league game at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Payet is always a goal threat and should pick up plenty of points for getting shots on target and creating chances for teammates. He doesn't come cheap at £12.7m but if he starts, he should reward fantasy managers for backing him.
James Collins - £4.3m
Another West Ham player to target this week is James Collins. The defender was the bargain of the opening weekend, scoring 43.25 points in Monday's defeat at Chelsea. Not only did Collins find the net, but he racked up points for a number of key defensive actions, making six clearances, four interceptions and winning three tackles.

Bournemouth visit the Olympic Stadium this weekend but with their pace in attack, Collins is sure to be tested again, which should see him pick up plenty of points at a bargain price yet again. Plus, he is always a threat inside the penalty area from set-pieces.
