Introduction

I’m still using 20/21 stats with adjustments where necessary for player transfers. That will continue until around GW6-10. I’m not making any huge adjustments on the basis of 1 gameweek.

The strength of the defence or attacking teams are based on the averages of their expected goals for/against and their actual goals for/against with a general adjustment for home and away. . The teams are then divided up into 5 colours of 8 home/away teams each. The rankings and colours are therefore purely factual so please don’t moan to me about the order.

Player values and PPMs are as of Monday 23 August and don’t include the West Ham v Leicester game

A fixture ease schedule for attacking players

Here’s a graphic where the teams are ranked by the ease of the defences they face over the upcoming gameweeks. There’s attacking player suggestions below.

Attacking player stats from teams with the best fixtures

Here I’ve picked out the 6 teams with the best fixtures. They are West Ham, Wolves, Brighton, Leeds, Watford and Newcastle

West Ham

Stats before the Monday game

£7.6m Fwd Antonio – 20/21 PPM 4.6. 21/22 PPM 13.0

£6.0m Mid Soucek – 20/21 PPM 3.8 21/22 PPM 8.0

£6.1m Mid Benrahma – 20/21 PPM 2.2 21/22 12.0

£6.0m Mid Fornals – 20/21 PPM 3.8 21/22 PPM 5.0

Wolves

Wait until GW4

Brighton

£6.5m Fwd Maupay – 20/21 PPM 3.2. 21/22 PPM 5.5 (check injury)

Gross and McAllister have started well and with good underlying stats but Gross from weird positions and McAllister has only started GW2 so I’m a bit wary until the team selection settles down a bit

Leeds

£8.0m Fwd Bamford – 20/21 PPM 5.1. 21/22 PPM 3.0

£6.5m Mid Raphinha – 20/21 PPM 4.4 21/22 PPM 4.0

£6.0m Mid Harrison – 20/21 PPM 4.4 21/22 2.0

Watford

Wait until GW5

Newcastle

£7.5m Mid Wilson – 20/21 PPM 5.2 21/22 PPM 3.5

£6.5m Mid Saint Maximin – 20/21 PPM 3.4 21/22 PPM 4.0

A fixture ease schedule for defenders and GKs

Here’s a graphic where the teams are ranked by the ease of the attacking teams they face over the upcoming gameweeks. There’s defender and GK suggestions below.

Defender and GK player stats

Here I’ve picked out the 6 teams with the best fixtures. They are Brighton, Norwich, Wolves, Spurs, Leeds and West Ham

Brighton

20/21 – 5th equal for clean sheets with 12. 7th equal goals conceded. 3rd ranked xG conceded.

Def Dunk £5.0m – 20/21 PPM 3.9 21/22 PPM 4.0

Def Webster £4.5m – 20/21 PPM 2.9 21/22 PPM 3.5

GK Sanchez £4.5m – 20/21 PPM 3.7 21/22 PPM 4.0

I’m just not sure how long £4.1m Duffy has once everyone’s fit

Norwich

At the moment wouldn’t consider a defender from this team

Wolves

Wait until GW4

20/21 – 14th for clean sheets with 10. 12th ranked goals conceded. 10th ranked xG conceded

Def Marcal £4.5m – 20/21 PPM ? 21/22 PPM 1.5

GK Sa £5.0m – 21/22 PPM 3.0

Spurs

20/21 – 5th equal for clean sheets with 12. 6th ranked goals conceded. 11th ranked xG conceded

Def Reguilon £5.0m – 20/21 PPM 3.3 21/22 PPM 6.5

GK Lloris £5.5m – 20/21 PPM 3.9 21/22 PPM 10.5

Def Tanganga £4.5m – 20/21 PPM 2.3 21/22 PPM 5.5

Tanganga is not without risk despite starting the first 2 games as Spurs have Doherty and Aurier as RBs. I have not included £4.5m Dier or Sanchez due to the signing of £5.0m Romero

Leeds

20/21 – 5th equal for clean sheets with 12. 14th ranked goals conceded. 18th ranked xG conceded

Def Ayling £4.5m – 20/21 PPM 2.6 21/22 PPM 3.5

GK Meslier £5.0m – 20/21 PPM 4.4 21/22 PPM 2.0

West Ham

Stats before the Monday game

20/21 – 11th equal for clean sheets with 11. 9th ranked goals conceded. 8th ranked xG conceded

Def Coufal £5.0m – 20/21 PPM 3.8 21/22 PPM 1.0

GK uncertain with the signing of Areola
