fantasy premier league form – underlying stats form tables GW31

Here’s some new tables I’ve done to look at underlying stats recent form.

People have different views as to what form constitutes. I think 4-6 games is way too short and distorted by fixtures and one off performances so I’ve gone for the last 10 gameweeks.

I’ve taken all the information from the amazing free site understat.com.

Methodology

I’ve taken the last 10 gameweeks expected goals per 90 minutes (xG90) and expected assists per 90 (xA90) and turned them into projected FPL points over a hypothetical season. I’ve then adjusted it for the average minutes played per appearance.

Average minutes can be distorted by sub appearances and injury returns but those are imperfections I will have to live with to make it a viable article time wise

I’ve also added a value for money column for mids and fwds where I’ve just taken the projected points and divided them by the players value.

For attackers there’s no appearance clean sheet or bonus points. Just raw attacking points. For defenders the same.

It’s a work in progress at the moment so excuse any imperfections. Just because a player is in the schedule doesn’t mean he is fit or a guaranteed selection.

Here’s the link to the google spreadsheet if you want to look further

The fantasy premier league form team for blanks GW31 and GW33

Structure

The team has been picked purely for the GW31 and GW33 blank fixtures to help with transfers for that gameweek and only players from teams with a guaranteed fixture in GW31 and GW33 have been considered.  These are Bournemouth, Burnley, West Ham, Huddersfield, Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea and Leicester.

I’ve generally picked the highest rank players in the tables above from those teams although I’ve also taken into account gametime security.

No allowance has been made for the GW31 and GW33 opponents.  So although West Ham have Huddersfield up first that has not been factored in.  The team is picked on form.

The team value is around £103m.  Hope you find it useful in considering your transfers;

  1. Interesting. Following my WC in GW29, I have 7 of these in my starting line up for GW31 (Luiz, TAA, Hazard, Salah, Brooks, Wilson & Vardy) plus another 4 that are similar
    Boruc instead of Ake
    Maguire instead of Pereira
    Maddison instead of H.Barnes
    Firmino instead of Mane

  2. I can’t believe I have 11 players from this line up for 31…Fabianski. Arnold, Luiz, pereira. Salah, mane, Brooks, hazard. Vardy, Barnes, Wilson. Let’s hope for a good blank week!!!
