Fantasy cricket profile: Stuart MacArthur

In the first of a series of posts profiling various players across the club, for those unsure who to select in their fantasy team, we look at 1st XI captain Stu MacArthur.

Name: Stuart MacArthur

Nickname(s): StuMac, Silverback, Gorilla

Role: Opening bowler and hard-hitting #7 or #8 batsman

2017 stats: 32 wickets @ 18.2 (inc. 1x 5WH), 149 runs @ 13.6 (inc. 1x 50), 10 catches

Fantasy value: £8m

Is he worth it? Stu starts the 2018 season as the reigning 1st XI and overall club player of the year. His 32 wickets last season would have been more if he had chosen to get married outside of the cricket season like any other normal cricketer, and as club captain he can go a long way to influencing the stats of both himself and those around him.

To be fair to the other bowlers in the first team however, it is probably right to mention that, due to him often bowling numerous wides per innings, he does get more chances than anyone else to take wickets!

So far he’s been selected by 40% of our fantasy team owners as one of their all-rounders but as he is prone to the occasional DIYE, do you want him in your team?
