With the English transfer window slamming shut, Fantasy managers would do well to sift through the moves that affect their sides
By ADRIAN HOUGHTON
Goal.com's EPL Fantasy Week 25 is a critical part of the campaign for Fantasy coaches.
The January transfer window has just concluded and it presents an opportunity to draft in some players who could change your fortunes around or keep you in the ascendancy.
Similarly, some of your players could have been pushed out of contention by new arrivals, so be wary of all the moves that affect your side.
Leighton Baines – Everton (32 points)
The England defender’s brace against the Baggies was a fine display from a popular Fantasy player, selected in 4,570 teams - £10,330,000.
Wayne Rooney – Manchester United (28 points)
Has played second fiddle to new team-mate Robin Van Persie, but against Southampton his brace reminded everyone of his sheer quality - £12,600,000.
Adam Le Fondre – Reading (22 points)
Has become one of the competition's best bargain buys after yet another two goals rescued his side against Chelsea. A price increase of £4,030,000 is proof of the former League Two player's worth - £9,480,000.
Bobby Zamora – Queens Park Rangers (4 points)
The former Tottenham, West Ham and Fulham forward has failed to spark into life at Loftus Road and seems like a player in decline - £4,630,000
Yossi Benayoun – Chelsea (4 points)
Had the makings of a potential bargain when he completed a move to Chelsea in the European summer, but has struggled to earn a regular first-team spot – £6,080,00.
Gareth McAuley – West Bromwich Albion (2 points)
Begun the season in red-hot form and at one point was Fantasy's top-scoring defender. A price decline of £3,130,000 tells a tale – £3,410,000.
