Walkabout Jokers have last laugh in gameweek

There was only half the fixtures to choose from, but you still had eleven players to field in gameweek 29 of the Cellcard Fantasy League.

Team tallies were understandably lower than previous weeks, but certain individuals made noteworthy contributions.

Dream pick of the round was Cardiff defender Steven Caulker, who netted two of his side’s goals in their 3-1 win over bottom of the league Fulham. The 22-year-old Englishman collected 17 fantasy points for his part in the Welsh side’s vital result in the battle against relegation.

Man United’s Phil Jones scored at one end and kept a clean sheet at the other to amass 14 points, while team-mate Wayne Rooney earned 12 points thanks to his solitary goal and assist.

Chelsea’s Demba Ba bagged a late brace against Tottenham to also yield 12 points.

The weekly competition saw Sothy Lay’s team Sothy FC come agonisingly close to victory. Although his total of 77 points was the best of the gameweek, five transfers meant he became ineligible for prizes.

The US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt instead goes to Glenn Press and his Walkabout Jokers on 74 points. Glenn’s squad featured a captain choice of Rooney for 24 points as well as Caulker (17) and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard (9).

Gameweek 30 fills out the next weekend with two titanic clashes on Sunday of Man United v Liverpool and the North London derby Tottenham v Arsenal.

Cellcard’s Fantasy facebook competition had nobody correctly guess Caulker as the top points scorer, so the $10 phone voucher prize will be rolled over to next week.
