A swift turnaround and a swift round-up of the Fantasy Football Scout mini-leagues and community competitions. This article covers Gameweek 14 in Fantasy Premier League and the climax to Fantasy Eliteserien as the Norwegian football season drew to a close.
Craig followed up victory over Aleksander Våge Nilsen (aka Burky Boy) with a 55 to 45 triumph over Jørgen Skjånes. However Aleksander, with his country’s reputation for fantasy football excellence to uphold, duly bounced back with a narrow win over Phil Roper to move into second.
The Magician (aka TorresMagic) was the highest-scoring manager in League 1 with three 10-point hauls from De Bruyne, Son and Alexander-Arnold. He draws level on 24 points with Emerson Ciccarello after a 65 to 53 victory.
This means that Vladimir Stojiljkovic in League 8 Division 77 is the only manager out of the 5,983 who started the season in the Head-to-Head leagues to have won all of his matches. Many congratulations to him.
At 178th overall, David Hurley has the best rank of any participating manager. Despite doing so well he has lost three times in Division 70 of League 7 and is tied on 33 points with Brian Doyle. Although he’s comfortably ahead on rank-difference.
