Here’s our fantasy premier league GW30 tips article where we analyse the teams of 10 top FPL managers where in the last 3 seasons none have finished outside the top 10k. The top 10 Managers have played 30 times in the last 3 years and none have finished outside the top 10k in that time. Considering how variable the last 3 years have been this is remarkable consistency and shows an ability to adapt strategy in different seasons. It also gives you a view other than my own on strategy and player selection. A good week with 8 green arrows.

FOCUS ON 1 MANAGERS TEAM
Again we focus on the managers team who last season finished the highest of my then top 10 FPL managers ending up in 1,400th position. This manager is the closest thing to a fantasy football celebrity there is due to his consistent results so we’ll keep an eye on him.
An OK week. At present he has a 9k overall rank, an improvement in rank of 1k from the last gameweek of 10k. His total points are 1,666 after an ok score of 73 this gameweek. Just to give you a bit of context his last 3 years overall rankings have been 1,450, 277 and 90.
THE HIGHEST SCORING AND LOWEST SCORING MANAGERS IN GW29
The highest scorer was 96 for our 2nd placed manager. He’s now ranked around 600
A low score of 55 sees this manager fall to 484k.
However to show you how challenging this season is his last 3 seasons overall ranks were 2,801, 623 and 987
Defence again played a major part with 24 of the 41 points difference are in defence.
TOP 10 MANAGERS COMBINED TEAM
Here’s a team to represent the top 10 managers. It’s slightly higher than my team value at £104.0m
The core players who are in more than 50% of the managers teams are Lukaku, Sigurdsson, Mane, Coleman and Alonso.
If you cross reference this with the top 10k managers with players over 50% then by that Coleman, Siggy, Lukaku and Mane are essential.
