Fantasy premier league GW23 review – the best underlying stats from GW23 





They are just for GW23 and not cumulative. It only includes selected players who started no subs.

The article is in 2 parts. We’ve started with the attacking stats for the players divided by position. Effectively we’ve taken their xG stats and their xA stats and converted them into FPL points and then ranked them. We don’t show the points but that’s how they’re ranked. It’s far more useful than just ranking them by xG and xA separately. I haven’t attempted to rank every player.

There’s shots and key passes so you get a volume perspective as well as a quality perspective.

There’s defender rankings although one off games don’t give a realistic picture. It’s better to look at cumulative stats

The 2nd part is just the ranking of team defensive and attacking performances which is the rank by xG and xG conceded. I’ve also included the GW23 fixtures so you can remind yourself who was playing if needed

The stats are all from the excellent free site understat.com. Player values are as of Sunday 13 January.

Here’s the link to the google spreadsheet if you want it

Best midfielders in GW23 

I’ve turned the xG and xA from GW23 only into theoretical FPL points and ranked them. Only attacking points no bonus or appearance points.

I’ve also added the previous weeks ranking although I forgot to add the GW22 Man City v Wolves game on Monday.  If there’s a blank in GW22 it means this or they didn’t play or I didn’t record them.  It should provide an interesting form and consistency insight.

  1. I dont understand why Doherty was dropped by Wolves…rested perhaps? He’s been great for Wolves so cant really understand.

    • From what i heard, he’s got a new born baby and could not train with the team as much last week. So rested.
