Glenn Whelan has put up two double digit performances in the last three match weeks and was prevented from making it three for three because he didn't start the other match.
We don't write about Glenn Whelan very often because he is exactly the sort of player that fantasy managers usually avoid like the plague. Holding midfielders have started to gain more respect in some fantasy circles as more games reward interceptions and tackles won but even in those formats, Whelan isn't usually very prolific. For the season, Whelan, who has started 23 matches, has only 88 points in the Yahoo scoring system. The reason we're writing about him now is that of those 88, 21 of them have come over the past three weeks (two starts and one match as an unused substitute). It could just be randomness but if you're in a single ownership format and you're desperate for a midfielder then Whelan might, just might, be a value buy since he will almost certainly be available.
