Daravy Empire Club rules over gameweek


{jathumbnail}

With only two fixtures producing more than two goals, gameweek 16 was a humdrum affair with fantasy points at a premium. Few managers of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League would’ve had the foresight to pick Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel, but those who did enjoyed the 15 points haul the defender brought home.

The Slovakian defender’s stunning headed goal and clean sheet against Aston Villa helped him to the gameweek’s MVP honour, two points clear of his nearest rival Clint Dempsey of Fulham, who also scored and conceded none while setting up another as well.

Fulham’s other weekend star was Costa Rican summer signing Bryan Ruiz, who matched Dempsey’s statistics to earn 12 points.

Our weekly winning total was understandably subdued but nevertheless claimed the Cellcard sponsored goodies of either an internet dongle or US$20 phone voucher as well as a T-shirt.

Regular and prolific fantasy league manager Vann Daravy took his team Daravy Empire Club to the top of the charts with a tally of 76 points. Daravy’s squad included the quick firing Man United maestro Wayne Rooney as captain for 14 points, and Man City’s David Silva for 11 points.

All five of the Empirical backline contributed 6 points a piece, while Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge (9) and Tottenham’s Rafael van der Vaart (7) were welcome inclusions.

Gameweek 17, which has already kicked off, will conclude tomorrow night with the Spurs v Chelsea blockbuster, so hopefully your selections were made wisely. Gameweek 18 then follows with the traditional Boxing Day games next Monday.
