Fantasy League debrief

Update your Fantasy League team here

Top performers

Wakefield's Liam Hood was the top performer in Round 20 thanks to a return of 83 points. Hood chipped in with multiple contributions during an emphatic Wakefield win on Sunday - crossing for a try, setting up another and making seven tackle busts during a busy 60-minute stint. Will you consider adding Hood into your side this week?

Wigan's Abbas Miski was amongst the top scorers in Fantasy this weekend after shining in his sides victory over Leigh Leopards. An impressive individual performance from Miski saw the winger score 82 points after crossing for a hat-trick of tries and running for a whopping 234 metres. Owners of Miski will be delighted with his Round 20 total.

Joining his Trinity teammate in the top performers of Round 20 is winger Innes Senior. Senior joined the club on a season long loan last week and made the perfect start to life in Wakefield thanks to a four try haul. Alongside his try contributions, Senior made 4 tackle busts and ran for 114 metres.

Fantasy flops

Owners of Mike McMeeken were left disappointed with his points return in Round 20 after the Dragons forward's night was cut short due to a head injury. McMeeken lasted just five minutes before his game was cut short, resulting in an underwhelming total of two points.

Matty Ashton's Round 20 Fantasy performance fell victim to a poor Warrington display and as a result scored just 15 points. Ashton was restricted to just 63 run metres during a try-less performance against a resurgent Wakefield.

Leigh Leopards' Josh Charnley was unable to make a difference during his sides defeat in the Battle of The Borough. With Charnley coming into Round 20 as one of the top scoring wingers in Fantasy League, an underwhelming total of 24 points was less than ideal for owners of the Leigh flyer. 

Looking ahead

The Betfred Challenge Cup is just over a week away and for Leigh Leopards and Hull KR, one eye will firmly be on their trip to Wembley. Despite both teams needing wins to keep their Play-Off aspirations alive, there's a distinct possibility of player's being rested, so keep an eye on your Leigh and Hull KR contingency ahead of Round 21.
