There are approximately 4.5m teams in FPL

You’ve got to be happy being in the top 0.5% of teams.  The bookies team was the big success and on an incredibly small budget

Sky Sports Fantasy Football

I believe there are around 1 million teams in this format

Total Points: 2,855 Overall rank: 34

I’m quite gobsmacked at this result given how little attention I gave it.  Had every bit of luck you could possibly have though as everything virtually went right that could

Sun Dream Team

I believe there are around 2 million teams in this format.  This still has the Europa League Final and the FA Cup final to go

Team 1 points:  2030   Overall rank:  14,426 updated for end of season 15,105

Team 2 points:  1958   Overall rank:  30,522 updated for end of season 26,706

Disappointing finish as I got priced out of Harry Kane who destroyed my rank at the end

Telegraph fantasy football

I believe there are around 250k teams in this format.  This still has the FA Cup final to go

Total points:  1859  Overall rank:  14,540 updated for end of season 16,278

A disappointing campaign where everything went wrong.  I did better when I could make no changes after my transfers ran out.

Detailed analysis of my FPL team

There are 2 excellent tools to analyse your FPL performance with although it needs a comparison in some ways.

The 2 tools are:

Selected stats

Here’s some selected stats from both the gargatron tool to analyse my team in comparison to the bookies team which ended up 57 points ahead of mine

Nothing earth shattering here.  The bookies team had 29 points more luck (or investing in a stronger bench?) with auto subs and took no hits compared to my 20 points

Where points came from?

So of the 57 points difference 44 came from the Defenders (37 points) and the GK (7 points)

I got 30 points more in midfield  but 17 points less in forwards

Best and worst players

Includes captain points unfortunately which makes it hard to analyse.  The FFGeek team first and then the bookies team.

Captain choices

Apart from Sanchez, I only moved away from strikers as captain  3 times and none were successful.  The Bookies only used midfielders 4 times and only Sanchez was successful, albeit only used once.

Formation

Is 3-4-3 the best formation?

Goalkeeper choice

Didn’t make a huge difference in the end but could have been better.  It’s worth noting that the bookies had Marshall on the bench for a decent time who wasn’t played which distorts this

What do these stats mean?

It’s only a 2 team comparison so it’s hard to take out much but for what it’s worth:

  • Defence can make a difference
  • Maybe keep to a core choice of captain players and are strikers generally best?
  • Is 3-4-3 the best formation?
  • Auto sub points.  Luck or is the bench also worth investing in with rotation and injuries

Hope you found the above useful.  I may do this on the top 10 FPL managers to see what we can learn

    Good job Mr Geek, you made a very nice recovery towards the end of the season, and finished in a very respectable position.

    I was ahead of you for a long time during the year, but my very low team value forced me to pick Ozil instead of Sanchez in the GW36 wildcard, and I think that is one reason why you passed me in the end (you beat me by five points – 2267 to 2262, which was a rank difference of 2,126)

    The Bookies team was a marvel all year, and threw up some interesting player selections that were not always the most popular picks……but they mostly worked out quite well.
    I’ll take a closer look at the bookies odds next year for sure.

    cheers

    Good stuff FFG! The study on the bookies team is quite interesting and definitely something for me to learn. I was lucky with some strong finish towards the end. 293 points from gw37 and 38 and finish with 2271 pts and rank of 20,623. Since this is my first season playing every game week with some planning, I’m pretty happy with my score. Look forward for next season and keep up the good work with the site!

    An interesting read. I had done a similar analysis for my own team and the conclusions were quite different. One of my biggest mistakes in the second half of the season was switching back to 343 in the gw35 wildcard. The first half of the season was an fpl nightmare with 76 points in hits and an OR of around 800k. Having missed 10k by only 1 point in the end there are lots of ‘if only’type calls to regret but the formation switch was a more substantial error as 352 had generated me higher points over two months or more.

    It would be very interesting to see the same analysis on your top 10 managers if you het the chance to do it.

    Aside from no consistency early on with defenders, I am questioning formation. 3-4-3 was my most common formation, 22 times for 54.9. The 3-5-2 saw usage only 8 times for 54.8. It was the 4-4-2 used 5 times that was the highest at 56.2 (of those formations used more than once). Something to be said about finding that fourth defender and getting some CS/bonus points (Yoshida for example later in the year).
