The mid-week magic was truly something to brighten up anyone’s Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
Gameweek 24 provided some very unlikely Premier League point toppers in a week of many unexpected results.
We have put together a list of these unlikely heroes which, if you were brave enough to put in your team, would have set you apart from everybody else.
Despite the obvious two inside the top five, only one other player is featured in more than 5% of fantasy teams.
It really was a week for the underdog.
Joshua King (16 points)
Bournemouth’s emphatic 4-0 demolition of top four challengers Chelsea was one of the biggest upsets in a week of many.
King made the difference for his side; he contributed to three of his sides four goals: scoring two and assisting David Brooks.
Chelsea struggled to handle the movement and speed of King, who wracked up a whopping 16 points to top the week.
Though, he only features in 3.1% of teams.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (13 points)
One of the two more obvious picks from the bunch, yet the Serbian natural goal scorer still only features in less than 15% of your fantasy teams - remarkable.
Mitrovic scored a more than impressive 13 points for Fulham in the midst of their dramatic comeback against Brighton & Hove Albion.
He scored two trademark Mitrovic goals in 16 second-half minutes to first level the score, then give Fulham the advantage, before Luciano Vietto put the Cottagers out of sight.
David Brooks (12 points)
Brooks is the second Bournemouth player to unsurprisingly feature in the top five.
His 12 points will serve as a real boost to the 6.1% of teams he’s featured in. He assisted the all important first goal and scored the second in their 4-0 win and was the creative driving force for his side once again.
The winger comes at a steal too: costing your fantasy team just £5.1 million, he is the cheapest player to feature in this top five by an overwhelming margin.
Though, his price is expected to rise with his current great form.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (12 points)
A lot of your fantasy teams feature this man and with good reason as he is the second highest scorer in the Premier League.
In fact, he features in 31.6% of teams in the fantasy world.
That popularity comes with a heavy price tag, though; for Aubameyang’s services, you will have to fork out £11.3 million… more than double the price for Brooks.
His points were earned at home to a sombre Cardiff City.
He was the outstanding player on the pitch and put his side in front from a spot kick in the second half.
Glenn Murray (12 points)
The Brighton striker has made quite a habit of appearing on this top five list.
The 35-year-old grabbed himself a brace inside the first 20 minutes at Craven Cottage, and looked to have given his side the victory, but for that astonishing second half revival from Fulham.
The two goals will serve much more as a personal achievement as it did for the team, but one Murray will be happy with as he moves up to double figures in the season.News Now - Sport News
