Gameweek 27 was one of those magic rounds in the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League that could make or break your season, with a huge disparity between the average score and the world’s top totals.

Less than three per cent of managers selecting Wigan’s Maynor Figueroa, yet another example of how taking a punt on a relative unknown can reap rich dividends. The Honduran fullback scored one, set up another and helped his side keep a clean sheet to take home the superior tally of 17 points.

A trio of A-list stars, meanwhile, were the bread and butter of many a manager’s gameweek as they yielded 15 points totals a piece.

Tottenham’s Gareth Bale is in stunning form and notched his second straight double during their 3-2 win over West Brom on Monday night, while Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla is emerging as one of the Gunners’ saviours this year with a brace of his own. Manchester United defender Rafael struck arguably the goal of the season, a 30-metre rocket past QPR’s Julio Cesar, to amass his Dream Team total.

A hotly contested gameweek had Prak Thav Sotharith come out on top, with his side Sotharith United on 87 points.

The local dentist brushed up real good by fielding all three 15-point players, including the extremely prudent move of bringing in Bale as captain for 30 points. Saintly Southampton striker Rickie Lambert also made his way into Sotharith’s squad for 11 points.   

Sotharith will get his teeth on a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Gameweek 28 plays out over the weekend and Monday, with the North London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal on Sunday as the standout fixture.
