Despite a Dream team bursting with individual brilliance, the average scores from game-week 30 of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League were relatively tame, in large part due to the prominence of less favoured players.
In a fitting end to a tumultuous week for Bolton, defensive stalwart David Wheater bagged a brace against Blackburn to lift him to the top of the fantasy points chart on 17.
Newcastle’s newly recruited Sengalese striker Papiss Cisse was close behind in second with 16 points thanks to his own double as well as an assist at West Brom.
Team-mate Hatem Ben Arfa of France was the other decisive factor in their 3-1 romp as his two assist and goal granted him 15 points.
Everton’s Leighton Baines was also a prized possession after his sublime freekick at Swansea converted to 15 points.
Floating above all in the weekly standings was Chhorvy Yin’s team While Cloud FC with a heavenly total of 73 points.
Chhorvy’s reigning men included a captain’s pick of Theo Walcott for 22 of her points, with Man United fullback Jonathan Evans rolling in with 12 points.
While Cloud FC’s lofty ambitions merited the gameweek prize of either an internet dongle or US$20 phone voucher along with a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.
Gameweek 31 approaches fast this weekend, with the slightly earlier deadline of 5:30pm on Saturday afternoon to get your transfers made by.
The biggest match-up sees Newcastle welcome Liverpool on Sunday, with both sides chasing places in Europe next year.
