Fantasy League December Stretch

Captaining Chelsea’s Eden Hazard proved more than useful for player’s in the Fantasy Premier League in Gameweek 17, and it certainly was fruitful for Yusuf Bham and Busby_Babes as they moved to the top of Phakaaathi’s Private Fantasy League for December.

The winner of the December competition will walk away with a Hi-Sense 49K300UW 49 UHD Smart TV worth R8 500. Busby Babes, going against the name of the team, have absolutely no Manchester United players in their squad, probably a wise decision given the current form of Jose Mourinho’s outfit. Hazard has been a bit quiet for Chelsea, by his ridiculously high standards, in recent games, but bounced back on Sunday with a goal and an assist in the 2-1 victory at Brighton. Captaining Hazard (above) gave FPL players a total of 26 points, which was the clear top contribution in Bahm’s total of 75 points for Gameweek 17, giving Busby Babes a grand total of 222 points for December thus far, with three Gameweeks still to go in a bumper month of English Premier League football. Bahm leads by eight points from Julian Thompson’s Hanging By A Fred, who had a steady week with 60 points, captain Harry Kane picking up 10 of those as captain, after a late assist against Burnley on Saturday. Lukasz Fabianski was also a good pick with nine points for his clean sheet in West Ham’s 2-0 win at Fulham. Special mention must also go to Mahomed Omar amd Mo’s XI, who used their Free Hit bonus chip this week and made excellent use of it too, top scoring in Phakaaathi’s Private Fantasy League win 82 points, to charge up to fourth in the
overall standings for December. Omar also captained Hazard, and had Leroy Sane in hisside, who grabbed 10 points for two assists in Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Everton. Mo’s XI also got goals from Watford defender Jose Holebas and Newcastle’s Salomon Rondon, while Kane and West Ham’s Felipe Anderson added further assists.
