As we pass the halfway point in the 2017/18 Premier League season, we cast an eye over the Dawn Ellmore Employment Fantasy Football League standings.
This has been a keenly fought league so far, with frequent changes at the top of the table, so the prize of a £100 Amazon gift card (and the respect of your fellow IP professionals) is all to play for. At the time of writing, the top three are separated by a mere 16 points, so we are certainly not seeing a runaway leader as is the case in the “real” Premier League!
The top 3 as things currently stand are:
Balotelli Tubbies – 1394
Le Saux Solid Crew – 1380
Trigger’s Broom FC – 1378
With just over 250 points separating top and bottom there is plenty to play for over the second half of the season, especially as a new wildcard was made available at the beginning of January – maybe some late activity in the transfer window will lead to managers making a flurry of changes?
Perhaps Theo Walcott will rediscover his form on Merseyside, and Aaron Lennon will thrive away from Goodison. Whether they are good options for inclusion in your squad remains to be seen, and it will also be interesting to see who comes out better from the Sánchez- Mkhitaryan swap deal…
We will keep you updated on the league standings as we get to the “business end” of the season.
