2017 World Crokinole Championship Fantasy Pool

It’s that time of year again to pull out your nail file for your best shooting finger, adjust your sleep schedule for an early morning, and begin hydrating for a humid (and hopefully) long day. 
But it’s also once again time to refresh your crokinole stats files and algorithms and think about who you will select for the 2017 WCC Fantasy Pool. Last year Roy Campbell edged out Jon Conrad by only 10 points for the 2016 Fantasy title, as he joined 2015 winner, Clare Kuepfer, on the distinguished list of champions.
So will a new victor emerge in 2017? You will get to play a part in deciding if that is the case.
The rules are simple (and the same as last year): 
1. Pick the best 8 player team consisting of:
    - 2 players from Group A
    - 2 players from Group B
    - 2 players from Group C
    - and 2 players from Group D.
2. The higher up your players finish, the more points your team earns.
3. Whoever has the team with the most points will win the coveted title of Crokinole Fantasy Champion, and bragging rights until their title is challenged next year.
NOTE: Fantasy Pool results are limited to the Competitive Singles category.
The separation into 4 different groups is designed to spread out the talent, so a the winning team will require a strong showing from many different players who outperform their expectations.
This year, the groups were divided based on CrokinoleCentre rankings and the 2016 WCC results. 
  • Group A - The top 4 CrokinoleCentre ranked players. 
  • Group B - All of the players who are either ranked in the top 10 by CrokinoleCentre, or who finished in the top 10 in the 2016 WCC.
  • Group C - The top 25 from CrokinoleCentre’s rankings, or anyone who finished in the top 25 in the 2016 WCC.
  • Group D - Any player not listed in Groups A, B or C. As a guide, a list of notable players have been provided.

Accidentally have Rueben on twice. He's in Group C, so not an available choice for Group D.
