Finally Guardini might not win all the sprints in Langkawi, which, though I like Guardini, is a good thing, because didn't pick him.
Don't bet on it, Guardini will win every stage and the overall.

Or at least that's what happens in my fantasy where I win the CQ game.

You can't imagine a more realistic winning scenario?

Only 47 with Coquard means his results are probably worth following.

Guardini's inevitable domination is just one part of my winning scenario.

I know I had Coquard in my team at one point but I can't remember why on earth I removed him.

Actually, I was almost sad that he got 2nd at the U23 Worlds because it meant that more people would pick him and therefore the advantage of having him would not be as big (he was on my team the moment he decided to turned pro on the road).
Same here. I don't think he will have as good a year as Demare or Bouhanni but getting a win this early bodes well for getting other opportunities later in the year, and with the number of flattish 1.1 classics in France he should be good for a few hundred points.

Common guys, one small win doesn't make a season. He won one little stage and has 20 points. Its not like he won the Willunga Hill stage and got 300 points for that.

Technically, you need about 500 points on average from every rider on your team to win this game and even though he is a great talent, and most likely will be profitable rider, I just dont see him grinding 500 points this season.

I think you're downplaying him too much. He doesn't need to score 500 points. Eventhough that may be the average you'll always have a broad span from expensive riders that carry a bigger part of that average to unsuccessful riders that barely break even or end on negative numbers. I'm sure Coquard can easily score 200 points and if he does I'll bet that you can pick any team and you would find at least one rider that you can replace with Coquard and the team would score higher because of it.

Well obviously 500 points isn't required for each rider because the winning team will have someone below that given Kennaugh/Bobridge/Ospina are not going to reach those heights.

In any case Coquard will score at least 250 and people who picked him knew that before yesterday, though it will be interesting to see if he can get any surprise results like a ****ty stage race GC.
