Casting even a lazy eye over the fixtures list for gameweek 28 would’ve highlighted the double header that league leaders Man United faced, so it was fairly obvious that their players would feature prominently in the Dreamteam this week.

Wayne Rooney’s resurrection is now complete and his goal in each game gave him a share of the lead in the weekly charts on 18 points. Strike partner Javier Hernandez saw his brace at Wigan convert into 14 points, while teammates Nani (11), van der Sar (10), Fabio (8) and Smalling (7) also made the cut.

Top value came from Aston Villa’s Ashley Young, whose double and assist against Blackburn eanred 18 points for PPP/CTN Fantasy League managers at a cost of £8.1 million compared to Rooney’s £11.8 million price tag.    

Jermaine Beckford’s two goals past Sunderland gave him a place in the week’s elite with 13 points.

Many managers opted for the red-hot Red Devil Rooney as captain for a tasty 36 points, including our weekly winner Vann Daravy with his side Daravy FC. Daravy’s squad had a solid spine of Dreamteamers (Rooney, Nani, Young and van der Sar) to total 96 points and claim the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Gameweek 29 has the transfer deadline of 6:30pm this Saturday and stretches into next week with an extra fixture for Birmingham and Everton players.
