Important note before going further
The first schedule ranks players by their NON penalty underlying stats and expected assists converted to FPL points in GW1-24 . Those who have taken penalties or are expected to be the penalty taker have an * next to their name
The form gives their ranking from the season/last 10 gameweeks/ last 5 gameweeks. I’ve put them in seperate columns so they are sortable
There’s no fixture ease ranking due to the changes in DGW26. I do say whether they have a potential DGW BGW. As I write this the fixtures have yet to be announced.
The value for money VFM ratio is the total expected points from their underlying stats divided by their price
The 2nd schedule shows their xG90 (expected goals) and xA90 (expected assists) plus their shots per 90 and key passes per 90 and their average minutes played (when they appear) over the season.
There’s also anytime goalscorer odds.
Player values and PPMs are as of Thursday 18 February .
The schedule ranked by Forwards NON penalty underlying stats over GW1-24
Players to comment on
A few who missed due to injury are
Wilson, Jimenez, Rodrigo and Mitrovic
A few who missed due to gametime doubts
Alexandre Lacazette, Tammy Abraham, David McGoldrick, Oliver McBurnie, Christian Benteke, Karlan Grant, Joelinton and Callum Robinson
A few players who are injury doubts but I included them
Antonio, Calvert Lewin, Chris Wood and Cavani
Many of you will be bringing him in for DGW25. There’s no hiding it, his basic non penalty underlying stats are poor but he does have penalties. 2 of his 8 goals are penalties already. In addition he is over performing his stats quite significantly but he did that last year as well. So if you believe he can continue doing that and getting pens or you just rely on actual returns rather than underlying stats go for it. To be honest despite my sceptisim I would put him in this week if there was a sensible way of doing it
Similar comments to Ings but Vardy has consistently proved he can over perform. Plus Leicester are a bit of a penalty gold mine.
Has dropped off somewhat from 2 ranked over the season to 6th over the last 10. I wouldn’t read too much into the last 5. I never do really but there were only 3 games 2 v Liverpool and City.
A few players who IMPROVED significantly in the last 10 gameweeks compared to the season overall
Watkins (3 to 1), Antonio ( 6 to 2), Firmino (9 to 5), Cavani (10 to 3) and Ashley Barnes (27 to 19)
A few players who WORSENED significantly in the last 10 gameweeks compared to the season overall
Calvert Lewin (1-9), Werner (5-11), Adams (13 to 18)
I will use the rankings to make an imaginary wildcard article today sometime on the FFGeek Patreon site
No fixture postponements from GW29 have been announced yet into other gameweeks but here are some potential doubles in DGW26
Nothing is guaranteed. This is just dot joining
These are not guaranteed but potential fixtures hopefully announced before the DGW25 deadline on Friday 18.30 UK time
-MCI ( Wham H, Wolvs H or Sou H)
-AST (Leeds A, Eve H)
-TOT (Bur h, Ful A)
-EVE ( Sou H, Villa A)
-BUR (Tot A, Lei H)
-MUN (Chel A, CPal A)
-PAL (Ful H, Man U H)
-LEI (Ars H, Burn A)
-LIV (Sheff A, Chel H)
-CHE (ManU H, Liv A)
That would still leave Villa v Sheffield, Spurs v Southampton, WBA v Everton and Man City v Southampton to be rearranged. There could be some interchanges with the above there just to confuse matters. Man City have no Euro game in GW27 and likely to have a fixture there
