Jan misses century but tops gameweek

Some big time performances from the Premier League’s hottest stars made for rich fantasy league pickings in gameweek 14. All members of the weekly dreamteam boasted over 10 point tallies, including an electrifying 11 points from Birmingham keeper Ben Foster.

The talismanic trio of Carlos Tevez, Kevin Davies and Morten Gamst Pedersen each bagged a sweet 16-point tally, while another triple threat came from the 15 points netting Rafael van der Vaart, Glen Johnson and Johan Elmander.

With a dreamteam total of 154 points, the reality of our PPP/CTN Fantasy League saw top honours for registered managers settle on Jan in’t Veld with his side Beforange.

Jan doubled up on double scoring Tevez by installing him as captain, while Elmander and Van der Vaart also featured in his 94-point haul. Jan would be kicking himself for keeping Forster on the bench, as it would’ve seen his score pass the century mark. Nevertheless, the Dutchman has done enough to claim the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard this week.

Beforange also spurted up the grid into eighth place on 750 points, 40 points behind unregistered table topper Frankie Fatpard. The league now has 400 fantasy managers, although many have still yet to register and risk expulsion in the near future. Email [email protected] now with your details.

Gameweek 15 serves up another full set of weekend ties, so wait until the midweek Europe matches have passed before making your transfer choices by 6:30pm Saturday.
