FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE GW17 TIPS – ANALYSING 10 TOP FPL MANAGERS

Here’s a slightly shorter version of our  regular feature where we analyse the teams of 10 top FPL managers who in the last 3 seasons none have finished outside the top 10k. The top 10 Managers have played 30 times in the last 3 years and none have finished outside the top 10k in that time. Considering how variable the last 3 years have been this is remarkable consistency and shows an ability to adapt strategy in different seasons. It also gives you a view other than my own on strategy and player selection. This week was a bad week with 7 of the 10 having red arrows. Even the “celebrity” manager had a red arrow

FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE GW17 TIPS – ANALYSING 10 TOP FPL MANAGERS

THE 10 MANAGERS FPL STATS

The stats of the top 10 managers are incredible again this season.

1. The overall average finishing position of the top 10 managers is 2,943

2. The top 10 FPL managers have not been out of the top 10k in the last 3 years (ie 30 times playing)

3. 9 of the 10 have finished in the top 1,000

GAMEWEEK SUMMARY

A bad week for the top 10 FPL managers. 7 of the 10 had red arrows.

The average score of the managers in GW16 was 52 compared to the average of 48. Thats 4 points and 8% above the average score. The high score of the 10 was 74. The low score was 42. An very high spread of 32 for the gameweek.

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers took a small leap backward to 258k compared to the last gameweek of 243k. A worsening of rank of 15k. The best rank is 5,000 and the lowest 918k. A couple of scores are distorting the average. If you calculated the median rank then that is 128k compared to 107k last gameweek. A worsening of rank of 21k. At the moment 4 have overall ranks inside 100k. 1 is inside the top 10k.

The average value is the same as last week at £104.7m.

If you’re interested my score was again terrible at 37. None of the managers had a lower gameweek score. My overall rank is now 488k compared to 639k last gameweek. A worsening of rank of 151k. I’m still ahead of 2 of the top 10 managers. My team value is low though in comparison at £103.0m up from £103.4m last gameweek. My total score is 797 points.

COMPARISON WITH THE TOP 10K

To save time I won’t be doing that this week

FOCUS ON 1 MANAGERS TEAM

Again we focus on the managers team who last season finished the highest of my then top 10 FPL managers ending up in 1,400th position. This manager is the closest thing to a fantasy football celebrity there is due to his consistent results so we’ll keep an eye on him. At present he is in 67k overall rank a small worsening  in rank from the last gameweek of 40k. His total points are 875 after an ordinary score of 40 this gameweek. However he did unluckily have Heaton and Williams on the bench for 23 points.  Just to give you a bit of context his last 3 years overall rankings have been 1,450, 277 and 90.

This week I think he will take out Firmino for Eriksen. I picked his transfer right last week.  Alot of times he’s predictable but he seems to get the 50/50’s right when it matters

THE HIGHEST SCORING AND LOWEST SCORING MANAGERS IN GW16

Highest scoring

The highest scorer with 74 this week.

Lowest scorer

42 for the lowest score

31 points to Lallana and Heaton.  That means 25 points of the 32 difference came from Heaton with a penalty save and Lallana.  Incredible.  This is the season of either blanks or double figure scores and it’s brutal

TOP 10 MANAGERS COMBINED TEAM

Here’s a team to represent the top 10 managers. Those highlighted are where it’s different to my team. It’s unaffordable at around £105.5 m.
