Fantasy premier league GW9 review – the best underlying stats from GW9
They are just for GW9 not cumulative. It only includes players who started no subs apart from Aubameyang who I thought would be of interest.
The article is in 2 parts. We’ve started with the attacking stats for the players divided by position. Effectively we’ve taken their Non Penalty 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 NP xG and xA separately. I’ve tried to include who I think has the best stats plus added on some notable players that people will be interested to see how they performed. 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. I’ve also added a column where I have said yes or no to midfielders and forwards as to where I think their stats were adequate for their price. I’ve used an average ratio as a benchmark but it’s possible I still need to do more to see what the ratio should be.
The defender rankings are the tricky ones to take anything from as CBs will get the occasional tap in from set piece goal mouth scrambles which will have a high xG. The players in this schedule are a selected bunch
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 GW9 fixtures so you can remind yourself who was playing if needed
Remember the stats are only for GW9 not cumulative. I intend to do this as my next article
Prices are as of Tuesday 23 October. The stats are all from the excellent free site understat.com
