Here’s our fantasy premier league GW32 tips article where we analyse the teams of 10 top FPL managers. These 10 managers have not finished outside the overall rank of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons. 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.
FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE GW32 TIPS – ANALYSING THE TEAMS OF 10 TOP FPL MANAGERS
If the article is too long there’s a template team for the top 10 FPL managers analysed towards the end of the article.
THE 10 MANAGERS STATS
This season we welcome back 4 of last seasons managers who were the subject of our article. We add to that a new 6 managers. Stats of these managers are unbelievable and every bit as impressive as last season
1. The overall average finishing overall rank of the top 10 managers in the last 3 seasons is 2,963
2. The top 10 FPL managers have not been out of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons (ie 30 times playing)
3. All 10 have finished in the top 1,000 in the last 3 seasons
A good week for the top 10 FPL managers. 9/10 had green arrows.
The average score of the managers in GW31 was 94 compared to the game average of 46. That’s 48 points and 104% above the game average score. High score of the 10 was 117. The low score was 48. A high spread of 69 even for a high scoring gameweek.
The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers saw an improvement of rank to 203k compared to 238k in the last gameweek. An average rank improvement of 35k. The best overall rank is 24k and the lowest 572k.
The average total points are 1,791
The average team value stayed the same at to £103.6m
If you’re interested my score was ok at 88. It resulted in no rank movement staying at 25k. I had a higher score than only 1 of the other managers. I’m ahead in OR terms at the moment of 8 of the 10 managers. My team value has dropped to £102.8m. My total points are 1,856 pts. You can see my early thoughts on the FFGeek team article for GW32.

FOCUS ON 1 MANAGERS TEAM
The celebrity manager we followed last season finished around the 20k mark so he’s not in the group this season. This season were going to focus on the manager each week who had the highest finish last season with an amazing overall rank of 15 believe it or not. The 3 years before that his ranks were 5,529. 1, 550 and 759. Unbelievable.
A poor score of 48 for the manager. He was the lowest scorer for the gameweek and his rank is now 572k. A worsening of rank of 211k from the last gameweek rank of 361k. His points total is 1,706. He’s the 10th ranked of the 10 FPL managers. His inexplicable ignoring of Salah has cost him dear.
THE HIGHEST RANKED MANAGER
I’ve decided to change this to just show you the team of the highest ranked manager
He scored 92 points and has an OR of 24k. His transfer was Mounie, Wilson and Stanislas in and Aguero, Kane and Carroll out. His last 3 years history are 3,874, 796 and 8,391
THE TOP 10K OVERALL RANK VS THE FPL MANAGERS
Lets look at the differences in the 2:
|GKs||Top10k||10 FPL Mangs|
The top 10k favour more than the FPL managers (using more than 30% as a significant difference):
The top 10 managers favour more than the top 10k (using more than 30% as a significant difference)
Elliot, Van Dijk, Mee, Ogbonna, Alonso, Stanislas and Walcott

WHO COULD HURT YOUR RANK IF YOU DON’T OWN THEM
I suspect a number of managers will be using their wildcards this week so not as relevant.
