England star earns more Fantasy Football points than anyone else in week 37
He’s taken the second most wickets in England Test history and played his part in four Ashes triumphs – but now Stuart Broad has another accolade to add to his roll of honour.
Among almost six million Fantasy Football players, the Nottinghamshire fast bowler came out on top in Gameweek 37 – scoring a highly impressive 180 points.
Going into Thursday evening’s West Ham vs Manchester United clash at the London Stadium, Broad sat atop of the standings with 169 points.
He posted on Instagram on Thursday morning: "I enjoyed 8-15 in the Ashes but leading GW37 in #EPL Fantasy Football runs it close as a sporting achievement!"
Broad used his ‘bench boost’ – a once-a-season chip which allows players on the bench to score points as well as those in the starting XI.
And it was that which won the day, with West Ham keeper Adrian keeping a clean sheet, his second of the gameweek, and scoring three bonus points to take his personal total to 19.
Despite his incredible week, Broad sits just 959,370th for the season overall, and trails several of his domestic and international teammates.
He sits fifth in the ‘Outlaws’ league with his Notts pals, trailing the likes of Jake Ball and Steven Mullaney.
Broad is also part of an ‘England’ league in which he sits seventh, with fast bowling partner Jimmy Anderson, all-rounder Chris Woakes and explosive keeper-batsman Jos Buttler among those ahead of him.
The 31-year-old has played 116 Test matches for England, taking 410 wickets.
