Bamford starred for Leeds as they beat Leicester 3-1 at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
And speaking after the game, the 27-year-old spoke about his decision to pass to Jack Harrison when he was clear on goal despite being in his own fantasy team.
"I have myself in my own fantasy team as well," he told Sky Sports, explaining his assist.

Bamford had a role in each of Leeds' goals against Leicester, scoring once and creating two in a brilliant individual performance.
He set up Stuart Dallas in the first half before putting his side ahead with a terrific finish in the second half.

In the final stages of the match, the forward set up teammate Harrison to seal an impressive away win.
Bamford now has 11 league goals and four assists to his name as he enjoys his best return in England's top flight.
His starring role also earned him maximum bonus points on fantasy.
After recording their ninth league win of the season, Marcelo Bielsa's side remain in 12th place with 29 points on the board.
