CBS FC hit century with skipper Suarez

Another gameweek, another sensational performance from Luis Suarez. If it’s all getting a bit too predictable, it’s a wonder why 56.1 per cent of fantasy managers worldwide have not opted to field the Liverpool striker.

Suarez surged yet further ahead in the overall charts with a 22-point haul thanks to his hand in all five of the Reds’ goals against a hapless Spurs side on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Uruguayan notched a double and set up three more to take his total 136 points this season, at an incredible average of 12.36 points per game. It was also his third straight week as the pride of the Dream team, an unparalleled achievement.

The player closest to Suarez’s score was Man City’s new Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho, who’s brace netted him 15 points.

The Cellcard Fantasy League was understandably awash with teams boasting Suarez as captain for high tallies, but only one managed to reach the magical mark of 100 points.

Rithea Kimsour’s CBS FC was that team, getting to three digits with huge help from skipper Suarez as well as West Ham keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen (11 points) and Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross (9).

Interestingly, Kimsour called in Suarez as his only transfer of the round, swapping out Man City hitman Sergio Aguero. Kimsour will collect a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard for his triumph.

The Cellcard Fantasy Facebook competition yielded another rollover to the following week with none able to predict the remarkable 6-3 win for Man City over Arsenal (although Lily Sakura came agonisingly close with a guess of 6-2).

Therefore, gameweek 17, which concludes with the epic London derby between Arsenal ands Chelsea, will offer up $30 in phone vouchers for the Facebook winner.
