Alex Read, Molly Heath share gameweek 7 spoils

The Cellcard Fantasy League offered up its latest unheralded hero in gameweek 7, with Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher reaping rich rewards for the four managers out of every thousand opting to pick him.

The 27-year-old Scot set up the Black Cats’ opener against Stoke and then notched his first goal in nearly a year for the club. A second strike from Fletcher meant he walked away with a top tally of 15 fantasy points.

Newcastle saviour Papiss Demba Cisse and the midfield trio of Man United’s Angel Di Maria, Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez and Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson all earned 13 points apiece for their goal scoring exploits and accompanying performance bonuses.

In a turn up for the books, two managers split a share of the Cellcard prize of a $20 phone credit for the round after Alex Read’s YoungBoysofPhnomPenh and Molly Heath’s Mysterious Molly both ended on 86 points with two transfers each.

Alex boasted squad selections of Henderson and Di Maria along with Chelsea’s Diego Costa as his skipper for 12 points, while Molly made the most of having her captain Stevan Jovetic remain on the bench to see her vice captain Henderson’s score doubled to 26 points. Di Maria, Sunderland’s Connor Wickman (11 points) and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen (11) were also in Molly’s ranks.

The Cellcard Fantasy Facebook page competition was an interesting affair in that for the second time this campaign, the correct answer was given as an example.

Fifteen users rightly stated that the final score would be 2-0 to Chelsea in their match against cross-city rivals Arsenal, but nobody posted Hazard as their tiebreaker. Thus the weekly prize of $10 phone credit moves to gameweek 8, which will begin on October 18 after the international fixtures break.
