fantasy premier league 2015/16 gameweek 1 – fixture ease schedule


fantasy premier league

Here’s our first fantasy premier league 2015/16 fixture ease schedule.  It’s a little premature to say the least but gives us some extra focus for teams and players for the pre-season.   Just to remind you the schedule ranks the teams in terms of the “easiness” of their next opponents from an attacking perspective. It ranks the next 6 fixtures and the next 3 from gameweek 1.  We also then highlight the teams with the best attacking fixtures and then make some player suggestions and give you the key stats in brief from last season

Essentially the team ranked 1 will have the easiest fixtures from an attacking perspective over the next 6 fixtures whereas the team ranked 20 will have the most difficult. Remember though it’s still June so teams will change.  Also there’s only last years data to rank teams on.  I’ve also ranked the 3 newly promoted teams as the easiest fixture in absence of any other data.
Column 1 will focus on the attacking easiness of the next 6 fixtures. Thats the most important stat for me as you can’t rely on changing a player without a hit in a shorter time frame. However for a shorter perspective I’ve put the next 3 fixtures in brackets in column 2.

Below the table I’ve put some notes on the teams with the best fixtures. Outlining the fixtures and some players to look for.  I’ve used last seasons end price and stats from the season.  Where a new player has been signed I’ve given some last season stats where I think he has potential
