Fantasy week 10 wrap-up

Week 10 provided only 10 goals across 6 games, at an average of 1.67 goals per game, so having a glut of strikers in your fantasy team this week was probably not going to be advantageous. What is going to become a strategy for many fantasy managers over the coming weeks is sub in all their players that have a weekend and midweek game across the same round. Nothing was truer this week, when the Phoenix and Roar had their turn at the double shift, and whilst many fantasy managers would’ve loaded up on their Brisbane players, it was a case of the more Phoenix players you had this week, the better week you were going to have.

In defence, it was a trio of Phoenix players after Wellington kept back-to-back clean sheets in their two games. Manny Muscat and Andrew Durante both scored 12 points, but Ben Sigmund (also this week’s highest scoring player) topped the defensive list with a staggering 18 points, thanks to a combination of clean sheets and a goal against Perth Glory on Saturday.

Across the midfield, the scenario wasn’t quite so ‘Nix heavy. While the two best scoring midfielders (Nick Ward and Leo Bertos) are both from the Wellington club, and scored 9 points each, the remainder of the midfield was a mixed bag, rounded out by Brisbane’s Mitch Nichols, Central Coast’s Rostyn Griffiths and the Heart’s Mate Dugandzic.

Up front, it was Phoenix striker Paul Ifill taking charge with 10 points, after a handy goal in the mid week game against the Roar, but he is ably assisted by one of either Melbourne Heart’s Eli Babalj, the Mariners’ Matt Simon, or the Victory’s Archie Thompson on 6 points.

For goalkeepers, and with two clean sheets across the weekend, it was always going to be Wellington’s Tony Warner who top scored. Warner tallied an impressive 13 points, but you could’ve also had good numbers from Glen Moss (8), Matt Ryan (7) or Liam Reddy (7), who also kept clean sheets in their week 10 fixtures.

But onto the weekly winner of the Pelé Sports prize, which this week was the Grand Master Graphic Crew t-shirt. And the winner this week, with a solid total of 57 points, is Liam Ruz. Liam’s inclusion of Ben Sigmund was the catalyst, along with good performances from Mate Dugandzic and a host of others. To claim your prize, Liam, please send an email to enquiries@ultimatealeague.com.
