Welcome to the Gameweek 14 round-up of the Fantasy Football Scout mini-leagues and community competitions. Time to find out who are this year’s Christmas number ones.
FFSCOUT OPEN-TO-ALL MINI-LEAGUE
League code: 5u05vz
Eligibility: Open to all
Congratulations to Maruf Hossain who will be top at Christmas in our open-to-all Fantasy Football Scout mini-league (league code 5u05vz). Maruf has held the number one spot ever since he joined in Gameweek 10, and is 13 points ahead of Will Thorp, who had a Gameweek score of 105.
But Maruf has slipped from third to fourth overall.
We are still the third Best League in FPL, based on the average score of the top five teams in each league.
Our current top five are Maruf Hossain, Will Thorp, Fionn Hayes, Da Hao Huang and Will Hollin, all of whom are in the top 190 overall.
There are currently 48,793 people participating in the open-to-all Fantasy Football Scout mini-league.
FFSCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS LEAGUE
Maruf is also the festive chart topper in our Fantasy Football Scout Community Members mini-league, with a 24 point lead over Peter Barone.

Surging up the table, the form manager of the last five Gameweeks is Tarek Haroun. Last week Tarek sold Kevin De Buryne in order to get Mohamed Salah, but with a tasty home match against Newcastle United coming up, will the Belgian be coming straight back in?
A reminder that to receive your free copy of the Dossier for the Community Members mini-league, please go to the Mini League Mate website to sign-up. The League ID is 584. The Dossier will be emailed to you at the end of each Gameweek.
We’re dishing out £2,500-worth of giveaways throughout the season, however only those who have registered a Fantasy Football Scout account (paid or free) will be able to claim a prize. Also, managers must be registered one month in advance of the awarding of a specific prize to be eligible.
The manager of the month for December will be announced after Gameweek 16.
Ville Tuominen (aka Santigold) had a narrow 88-87 win over Cam Black in League 1 and now has 33 points out of a possible 42, but second-placed Aleksander Våge Nilsen (aka AleksanderVN) was held to a 95-95 draw by Simon Vasquez.
This is Muzammil’s fifth season and he is 87k overall.
