Fantasy Football

The Phakaaathi Private Fantasy League competition for November was about as close a tussle as you will see, but in the end it was Cassius Matlabi who topped the table and walks away with a Canon Powershot SX730 HS camera valued at a cool R4 999.

Matlabi’s Cassius Marabe FC pipped Zane Botha’s White Walkers by a single point, with a final November total of 285 points to 284. Cassius Marabe FC played their triple captain chip in November, but interestingly enough, this was not in any way key in them winning the prize. Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, after all, only picked them up a total of six Fantasy Premier League points for Gameweek 12, in a team score of only 38 points for that week. Sterling was still a key man in Matlabi’s success, however, getting 42 points as captain in Gameweek 11, and another 32 as skipper in Gameweek 13. White Walkers, meanwhile,
started November with a bang, picking up 92 points in Gameweek 11, with captain Sergio Aguero, Sterling and Everton’s Richarlison all scoring big.

This week’s midweek games produced some high scoring, with Julia Thompson’s Hanging By a Fred side top of December’s league with 86 points. Thompson did well to captain Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson
(above), who got a goal and an assist against Huddersfield, as did Marcus Fraser, also picked by Hanging By a Fred. Harry
Kane was another top scorer in the team, with 12 points for his goal and assist against Southampton. There were not too many high FPL scorers in defence for Gameweek 15, meanwhile, as not one side in the English Premier League managed to keep a clean sheet. Still those, like Thompson, who picked West Ham goalkeeper Lucas Fabianski, did well, as he saved a penalty in their win over Cardiff. Wolves defender Matt Doherty, one of the surprise successes in the FPL this season, also got five points for his assist in his side’s impressive win over Chelsea.
