August is shutdown time in the world of PDC darts,  a rare opportunity for players to unwind and take a break from the rigours of the professional circuit, catch up with family and take holidays in the sun etc. The BDO/WDF calendar on the other hand, ploughs on through the summer, with the Belguim and Swedish darts opens providing FLD ranking points. So if you your team is bereft of BDO boys, you are a certain non-mover this month.

Who leads the 2012 Fantasy League Table? 

Two times manager of the month prize winner John Scott leads the competition, his team ‘Roger Schena is a Legend’ are nearly 100 points clear of Veteran FLD player Trevor Carey in second place; a run to the final of the Belguim Open in August by Kristian Kist bagging him plenty of points and keeping his ‘Conquerors’ in the running, whilst Martin Atkins victory at the British Classic elevated John’s team early this month. This means Darting Army have been relegated into third place, elsewhere guest players Jacques Nieuwlaat and Rod Harrington retain their top 10 status.

Player Points

No major changes here, Phil Taylor and Dave Chisnall sit in first and second place respectively, with Wesley Harms flying the flag for the other side of the divide in 5th position.
