Sizeable points tallies were expected to be hard to come by in Gameweek 29 of the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League, with just six fixtures being played and only two of the top seven sides in action. However, somehow the top score of the round was above the best offering from Gameweek 10, so it clearly pays to know your players from the less prolific sides.

We’ve enjoyed a few weeks recently where a relative unknown has stormed the Dream team, but perhaps this week was the finest example of someone going from near-zero to hero.

QPR’s Andros Townsend was selected by just three out of a thousand fantasy managers, so give yourself a hearty pat on the back if you were one of them. The young English midfielder scored one and set up two others in QPR’s 3-1 win over Sunderland to amass 16 points, more than half of his season total.

Another new name to confirm his arrival was Tottenham’s Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen, who netted both of his side’s two goals, with only 3.9 per cent of managers cashing in on his 14 points.

In complete contrast, just over 40 per cent of the league fielded Liverpool’s Luiz Suarez in their teams, with the Uruguayan hitman producing yet another star performance that featured a goal, assist and three-point bonus to notch 12 points.

The vast majority of these managers handed Suarez their captain’s armband, including our weekly winner, Yano Kuy, with his team Phnom Penh FC on 70 points.

Kuy had perennial Dream team Gareth Bale of Spurs in his squad for eight points, as well as Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke and Liverpool playmaker Steven Gerrard for seven points a piece.

Kuy collects the $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard as his reward.

Gameweek 30 welcomes back all twenty Premier League sides for a tight weekend schedule. The two London derbies of Tottenham v Fulham and Chelsea v West Ham will supply some intrigue, while many will be attracted to the top-and-tail battle of Manchester United v Reading.
