It was a huge week for both Leicester City and Arsenal as the two clubs grabbed the first- and second-place spots in the Premier League after Manchester City lost to Stoke City. The men behind those great performances were midfielders Riyad Mahrez and Aaron Ramsey, who overshadowed their star forwards to put together the best fantasy football performances of Saturday’s matchday.
While fantasy managers will undoubtedly be upset that Jamie Vardy and Kevin De Bruyne failed to score this week, the Dream XI made off with a whopping 100 points this weekend without including either of them.
