There were only four mediocre teams playing and only one goal scored, so how the hell did somebody manage to score 56 points in Fantasy Football last night? This is how.
A lot of managers may have been caught out by the midweek gameweek in Fantasy Football, but one manager was very prepared, ridiculously so in fact, picking a team comprising entirely of Sunderland, QPR, Reading and Aston Villa players.
While that might sound like the worst Fantasy Football team ever, it kind of paid off for Ahmad Albab’s team ‘harimau gunner’ team last night as he scored a pretty respectable 56 points from only two games, a full 55 points above the average score for the week so far.
Ahmad’s decision to award Christian Benteke the captaincy paid off as he scored the only goal of the night in Aston Villa’s 1-0 over Reading, while clean sheets were also in plentiful supply.
Unfortunately for Ahmad, he has not one player playing in the eight games tonight and if he sticks with that team, he probably won’t pick up an awful lot of points in future. Also, he made a whopping 14 transfers to select this team and didn't use his wildcard so he cost himself 48 points, meaning his real total for the Gameweek was only 8 points.
Still, however he managed it, 56 points with a crap-looking team like that is not to be sniffed at.
