Roeun’s Strategos have tactics to rule the roost in Fantasy League this week

Most football fans would want the English Premier League season to be a roller-coaster ride of emotions, so perhaps we should expect some dips in the Cellcard Fantasy League, following gameweeks of soaring highs.

The second round of the latest campaign was inglorious on most fronts, save a few flashes of brilliance from unheralded heroes.

Very, very few would have predicted that newly promoted Cardiff would beat 2012 champions Manchester City, with striker Frazier Campbell emerging as the pick of the week.

The 25-year-old Englishman netted twice and assisted the Welsh club’s third goal to tally 16 points, easily making him the cream of the Dream team and the pride purchase for the 2.6 per cent of penny-wise fantasy managers that selected him.

Interestingly, in just two games Campbell has already surpassed his total from the whole of last season, when he was with Sunderland.

Of course, nobody actually had the foresight to hand Campbell the captain’s armband, and not many did the same for his closest rival in the weekly charts, Lukas Podolski of Arsenal, the only other player to find the back of the net more than once. The German forward’s double and bonus points took him to 13, while Liverpool’s Jose Enrique amassed 12 thanks to a clean sheet and assist.

Top tactician of Gameweek 2 was Roeun Noresa with his team Strategos on 83 points. Roeun’s squad included Enrique along with a skipper choice of Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko for 16 points.

Along with the weekly spoils of a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard, Roeun also shot to the summit of the overall standings.

Gameweek 3 fits snuggly into the weekend and features a Liverpool v Manchester United blockbuster and a North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.
