The last round was a top-heavy one, with several of the most selected players picking up bonus points and rewarding their fantasy owners, even though not necessarily all of them made the team of the week.
Juan Musso (7 points): only three clean sheets this week, for a stat that continues to be very seesawing. As a matter of fact, two came in the same match, where the Argentinian goalie outdueled Sassuolo’s Andrea Consigli and held down the fort and helping Udinese bring home a good point.
Giorgio Chiellini (9 points): a dominating defensive display for the veteran centre-back in Florence, who also had the merit of scoring the game-sealing goal for his side.
Rogerio (5 points): stopping Udinese on Sunday was hardly an achievement considering how they decided to play, but the young Brazilian also had a sizeable role of offense, even though the Neroverdi did not manage to come through.
Bram Nuytinck (5 points): a double-dip for the Zebrette back-line as Nuytinck was their best defender at the Mapei Stadium with eight clearances, three interceptions, three tackles and two blocks to stifle Sassuolo. Simply put, he was all over the attackers.
Jasmin Kurtic (7 points): SPAL needed a spark after few underwhelming outings and the return to fantasy relevance of the Slovenian midfielder provided just that, even though they did not manage to come away with a win against Empoli. Nevertheless, Kurtic bagged two outstanding headers, the second high-arching one in particular.
Rodrigo Bentancur (5 points): this round was ripe of fabulous goals and his classy run and clever finish certainly fits the bill.
Rade Krunic (5 points): another gem in a week full of highlights as the Empoli’s talented midfielder found the target with a tremendous shoot from distance. He also had an assist.
Cengiz Under (4 points): the run of jewels continues and none was brighter than the sublime and sudden strike from way downtown by the Roma’s starlet, who certainly needed that this week.
Fabio Quagliarella (8 points): the seasoned striker dragged Sampdoria out of the hole they were in and led them to victory with two extremely clinical finishes.
Patrick Cutrone (4 points): Milan did not deserve to go down in the score versus Parma and the gritty striker quickly remedied to that by bagging a loose bouncing ball in the box.
Sergio Pellissier (4 points): he is the poster boy for the recent mini surge by Chievo, which came close to upsetting Lazio on Sunday, mostly thanks to his text-book cut between two defenders, tiptoeing the offside trap, and conclusion to cap off a quick fast-break.
