fantasy premier league game week 8 – stats analysis


Here’s the fantasy premier league underlying stats analysis for game week 8.   Sky Sports FF Stats will be done as well from time to time but not this week.

So just to recap on how the underlying game week stat analysis works now.  I’m essentially going to concentrate on the shooting stats for the all matches plus the last 6 fantasy premier league games and the last game week.  I’ll do this in a division between Strikers and Midfield.  This will give you a good idea of who’s got the best underlying stats in the shooting area.  Although I think these stats are very secondary to shooting, as an additional bit of info I will give the best chances  created in all matches and the last 6.  The stats are subjective with an interpretation of shots, shots  in box and accuracy

I will then look at the shooting stats for defenders.  I’m  not going to look at chances created as I think the link between that and assists is even more difficult for defenders.

Heres a few things Ive added over the last couple of weeks

1.  There’s starting to be enough data and variations in game time that I’m taking in to account shots and chances per minute which means there maybe some variations to last week.

2.  I’ve included the fixture ease ranking that the 6 games applies to.  This will show the context of there stats.  For example if someones 6 games included Utd, City and Arsenal being in the top 10 will be more impressive than if they played Reading Saints and Wigan.

4.  On the all matches ranking and the last 6 shooting stats list I’ve added “CC” next to their name if they’re also in the last 6 chances created top 10.  That will let you easily see if they have another string to their bow of assist potential (however unreliable  the correlation is)

I wont analyse the player implications for these stats in this article but in the “ones to watch” articles they will be an integral part
