Fantasy Fortnight - Who's Hot and Who's Cold

Each week (or so) we'll dip a toe in the fantasy pool, test the water, and find out which players are hot and which ones are not over the past two weeks. 

We've changed the name (from Testing the Water) and the time period (now two) but it's still the same goal: Let's find out who's hot and who's not.

Statistics cover the period from Nov 18th to Dec 2nd.
