Scuttling Hogs GW 14 Fantasy Premier League 2
Well you really have to take your hat off to the Scuttling Hogs after they recorded a stunning 104 points during Game Week 14. Leading the way for the Hogs was the captained Alexis Sanchez with a hat-trick and 46 points. The Hogs also got goals from Eriksen (2), Can, […]
