Be Bee swarms to take home Fantasy honeypot

The third week of the Premier League saw further malaise for Man United fans, while Chelsea and Swansea supporters had yet more reasons to be cheerful.

The Cellcard Fantasy League was again a mesmeric melee for managers, with many sides cashing in on a stellar performance by Chelsea’s summer marquee signing Diego Costa.

The 25-year-old Spanish striker hit home two of his team’s sensational six goals against Everton to collect 12 points, although this wasn’t the top tally of the round.

That honour fell to Swansea midfielder Nathan Dyer, whose own brace and clean sheet helped him to 16 points. The 3.6 per cent of managers that paid just £5.6 million for the 26-year-old Englishman have certainly been getting their money’s worth.

Another bountiful bargain buy was Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, who bagged 15 points for his pair of strikes.

The weekly contest for a $20 phone voucher from sponsors Cellcard could’ve been won by Cameron Strong’s team CaptHun Sensible on 82 points, if only he’d registered.

Instead, the prize drops down to Be Bee and his side Vutho FC on 77 points. Quoc Nam Bui’s Barcelonam also got 77 points but missed out on the spoils due to having made three more transfers during the week.

Be Bee buzzed to the top with Costa as captain for 24 points, with other Dream team selections including Aston Villa’s Andreas Weiman (12) and Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson (11).

Over in the Cellcard Fantasy Facebook competition, the question was “Which player would yield the most fantasy points in the game between Liverpool and Tottenham?”. It turned out to be another real stumper with the Reds’ Spanish defender Alberto Moreno notching a stunning debut goal for his new club to grab 13 points.

With no one naming Moreno as their guess, the $10 phone voucher from Cellcard rolls over to the next round, which will be played in two weeks time following an international fixtures break.
