‘A tasty jackpot you say?’

It was no different last weekend with James Stacey pocketing that juicy £5k jackpot after withstanding competition from the rest of the pack.

Weekender takes 30 seconds; simply picking seven players from the Saturday and Sunday games with no budget limitations.

And Swindon fan James admits he’s a big fan of the short-form version of fantasy football.

“I do prefer Weekender overall because it refreshes every week,” he told Dream Team.

“It gives everyone a chance to correct their mistakes from previous weeks.”

Last weekend Eden Hazard’s mysterious injury left a lot of managers facing a dilemma… do they stick or twist with the best player in the league this season?

James wasn’t taking any chances, switching Hazard for Chelsea team-mate Willian, and his decision proved inspired.

“My advice for first time Weekender players is to really study the matches,” he added.

“I’d never come close before, finishing in the top 2500 once, but everything seemed to fall into place this time!

“I’d never have won if I hadn’t changed Hazard for Willian at the last minute.”
