It really is that simple.

And as we all know fantasy football is a game of fine margins – just ask Craig Hardham.

Portsmouth fan Craig’s clever picks this week won him a share of that £5k Dream Team Weekender jackpot, which he split with two other winners.

And, as always, we spoke to our weekly winner about their tactics and why they love playing Weekender.

“I enjoy Weekender mostly because of the mini league I started,” Craig told us.

“I picked Danilo in City’s defence because I thought he may want to make an impression for Pep [Guardiola] as [Aymeric] Laporte had just been signed.

“And he came up trumps with that screamer of a goal.”

He really did.

Craig’s team was pretty conventional when you consider Manchester United hosted Huddersfield at home and Arsenal played Everton last weekend.

But Danilo’s inclusion was the pivotal decision, with his stunning goal against Burnley earning him 13 points and the Star Man award.

That proved the difference between winning a tidy prizepot and going home with nothing.
