Points, Points and More Points
Only Ignacio Laprida of SD Farms managed to get close to the big point scorers of the Audi vs Pilot matches earlier in the week, outdoing himself by scoring 35.75 points off a $20k price tag.
With all five games being reasonably low scoring, certainly in Fantasy terms (even solid 30+ point scorer Sapo Caset scored just 23.25 points), there were few out and out Top Picks and you will have to see what this coming week brings before you can sort the men from the boys. The only real surprise came from Joaquin Panelo who was subbing in for Kris Kampsen for Postage Stamp Farm. He scored 28.75 points, putting him 5th in the ranking. It is yet unknown whether Kris will be back for the next match, but if not it is well worth taking a punt on this $20k ringer.
Yellow cards seemed to be the downfall of many with what must be a record 9 handed out in this first round. At -10 points a pop, keep an eye on those players that seem to be racking them up as they can be hugely detrimental to your score.
