Fantasy premier league GW25 review – the best underlying stats from GW25 (updated for Mondays game)


,

Here’s our fantasy premier league GW25 review where we look for the players and teams with the best underlying stats from GW25 only. It’s an easy way to check on how one of your FPL team performed in the gameweek

Fantasy premier league GW25 review – the best underlying stats from GW25 (updated for Mondays game)

They are just for GW25 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 GW25 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 Monday 4 February.

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

Best midfielders in GW25

I’ve turned the xG and xA from GW25 only into theoretical FPL points and ranked them. Only attacking points no bonus or appearance points.

Their ranking for previous gameweeks is also included.  If there is a blank it could mean they didn’t play or were a sub or I just didn’t include them for whatever reason.

The Liverpool and West Ham players are in italics
