Galaxii FC stars in down to Earth gameweek 10

Gameweek 10 of the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League had a distinctly binary nature to the scoresheets with only four teams capable of netting more than once.

The mediocre outputs naturally reflected on low tallies for fantasy managers, with a Dream team total of just 116 points.



The week’s most valuable player was Everton’s Marouane Fellaini on 15 points.

The 24-year-old is rapidly turning into one of the hottest properties in the league, with nearly a quarter of all managers fielding the fuzzy-haired Flemish midfielder who bagged a brace at Fulham on Saturday.

The only other player to score a double was West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie for a 13-point total.

The gameweek prizes of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard were claimed by Rathphirun Keo with his side Galaxii FC.

The celestial score of 69 points was enough to secure victory in a closely run contest.

Rathphirun’s stellar lineup included Fellaini and Man United’s goalscoring defender Patrice Evra (10 points), while his captain pick of West ham goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen yieded 14 points.

Liverpool’s man-of-the-hour Luiz Suarez and Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye gifted 9 points apiece towards Galaxii FC’s meteoric rise.

Gameweek 11 fixtures comes thick and fast this weekend, with titanic clashes between Man City and Tottenham and Chelsea and Liverpool headlining Sunday night.

Get your transfers done by 6:30pm on Saturday night.
