With an avalanche of goals on Saturday, the PPP/CTN Fantasy League saw its gameweek 14 host a party of points. While there have been eight hat-tricks bagged so far this season, it's not since Edin Dzeko’s masterclass on August 28 that a player has knocked in four during a game.

Step forward Blackburn striker Ayebeni Yakubu, who netted all four of his beleaguered club’s goals against Swansea to bring home 21 fantasy points along with the match ball.

Rich rewards are given when defenders find the net and three backliners swooped to score over the weekend. Arsenal’s Thomas Vermaelen pipped Stoke’s Robert Huth and Man United’s Phil Jones by a point on 16 due to an added assist.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s talismanic Dutchman Robin van Persie kept on flying with a goal and two set ups to amass 15 points.     

For just the third time this season, our weekly winner registered in triple figures and it was a familiar name back on top of the leaderboard. Henry Verey with his team VoxClamantis showed just why he’s leading the league like a boss by chalking up 101 points.  

Henry also triumphed in gameweek 8 and has now opened up a 70 points gap at the top of the overall standings. His inspiration transfer of Yakubu into his squad before the gameweek was accentuated with a captain pick of Van Persie for 30 points, and Jones in defence.

Another weekly prize of either a US$20 phone voucher or internet dongle as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard is winging its way to Henry.

Gameweek 15 has a transfer deadline of 6:30pm on Saturday and features the headlining clash of Chelsea v Man City.
