It isn't going to happen often so it seems worth noting that Craig Gardner continues his strong season with a goal in a second consecutive match.
Quick quiz, which midfielder has scored the most fantasy points (Yahoo format) this season? Juan Mata, Yaya Toure, Oscar, Steven Gerrard, Morgan Schneiderlin or Craig Gardner. OK, trick question, the answer is Oscar but of that group Gardner is second and only seven points behind Chelsea's Brazilian creator for the season. That group is definitely part of a third tier of fantasy midfielders (Hazard and Cazorla are their own tier and then there's a group with guys like Silva, Eriksen, Sterling, Downing, Sigurdsson, Fabregas and Coutinho). The fact that Gardner is in a group that comes just after names like those is somewhat shocking but worth knowing for unique ownership formats heading into next season. Apr 21 - 10:24 PM
