The Ecuadorean's goal and string of successful crosses against Fulham led him to a highly commendable 18 points, more than double his price at the time.
However, Valencia and his United team-mate Patrice Evra (12) were the only ones to do the business for yours truly, as the absence of Wayne Rooney hit hard - front duo Asamoah Gyan and Darren Bent scored 3.5 points between them.
Charlie Adam managed to outscore both Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas with a paltry 5.5 despite the Arsenal duo running rings around Blackpool for much of their 3-1 win at Bloomfield Road, but sadly there are no points for style in Fantasy Football.
As for the main players at the top of our Superleague, we have a new leader - step forward toxtethterror9, leaping up four places to top the standings.
The change of leadership is in part courtesy of canny picks such as Daniel Sturridge (33.5 points) and Brad Friedel (16) helping him to a score of 140 for the week, but mostly because previous leaders Boss FC had a rare aberration and only picked 10 players, thereby scoring zero! Don't worry, Boss FC, it happens to the best of us. There's still time to mount a heroic comeback.
