fantasy premier league transfer tips GW24 – Analysing the teams of 10 top FPL managers 


,

Here’s our fantasy premier league transfer tips GW24 article  where we analyse the teams of 10 top FPL managers. These 10 managers have not finished outside the overall rank of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons. 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.

Introduction

The criteria I’ve always been looking for is managers who’ve finished in the top 10k for the last 3 years when FPL has become considerably harder due to the amount of people playing and the information available.

The 10 managers stats

I’ve given the identities and FPL IDs of the 10 FPL managers in the FFGeek Patreon site

It includes our very own Yaniv Salomon who you can follow on twitter here

These managers are incredible and every bit as impressive as last season.

1. The overall average finishing overall rank of the top 10 managers in the last 3 seasons is 3,860

2. The top 10 FPL managers have not been out of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons (ie 30 times playing)

3. 7 of the 10 have finished in the top 1,000 in the last 3 seasons

4. 1 of the 10 have finished in the top 100 in the last 3 seasons

Their basic stats after GW23 Sunday




There were 7 green arrows and 3 red arrows

The average points score in GW23 after Sunday was 63 net of point deductions for extra transfers. It’s worth noting that most of the managers have Dallas/Bamford for the Monday night game.

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers was 75k.

The median overall rank was 25k

The average total points are 1,478.

The average team value was £106.0m.

The combined total of individual players

I’ve generally only included where there is a minimum of a player in 3 out of the 10 FPL managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by player

Martinez is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Dallas and Cancelo are in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Coufal and Dias are in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Pope and Mee are in 4 of the 10 managers teams

Justin and Stones  are in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by team

I have stripped out non playing GKs

Man City are represented 16 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Villa are represented 9 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Burnley and West Ham are represented 8 times

Leeds are represented 7 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Man Utd and Leicester are represented 3 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Midfielders

Salah and Fernandes are in 10 of the FPL managers teams

Gundogan is in 9 of the 10 managers teams

Son is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Grealish is in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Soucek and Rashford are in 2 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Forwards

Bamford is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Antonio is in 8 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Calvert Lewin is in 7 of the FPL managers teams

Watkins is in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

GW23 Captain Choice

8 managers captained Fernandes

1 manager captained Son

1 manager captained Antonio

The FFGeek Captain Poll showed Fernandes at 44% , Son at 25%, and Antonio at 16%

Formations

8 managers played 3-5-2

2 managers played 3-4-3

Transfers 

4 managers carried over a free transfer

0 managers took a 4 point hit

transfers in

Mee and Pope were transferred in 4 times

no other player was transferred in more than once

transfers out

Forster was transferred out 4 times

Robertson was transferred out 2 times

No other player was transferred out more than once

Wildcards and Chips

1 manager has used his 2nd wildcard

4 have now used their triple captain chip

3 managers have used their bench boost

No chips were used this gameweek

The top 10k overall rank vs the 10 FPL managers

Here’s a comparison between the top 10k overall rank ownership % and the 10 top FPL managers.  The differences in the 3rd column are narrowing

The 10 top managers favour Martinez, Dallas and Gundogan  significantly more than the top 10k

The top 10k favour Justin, Stones and Soucek more than the 10 top Managers

The template

I use the 10 managers as a proxy for serious managers teams and have a basic rule of thumb that if 7 of the 10 managers have a player or a team defence then I will seriously consider getting that player .

Here’s the template on that basis. The difficulty with tracking the template is that you’re 1 game behind it as you obviously can’t see what their transfers are leading up to the gameweek opening.

Villa defence – Martinez

Leeds defence – Dallas

Man City defence – Dias and/or Cancelo

West Ham defence – Coufal

Burnley defence – Pope or Mee

Salah

Fernandes

Son

Gundogan

Bamford

Antonio

Calvert Lewin

Incredibly that’s 12 players. A full 11 player template team with only Coufal, Mee and Dallas rotating in the starting 11 on fixtures

One managers team

Here’s the manager with the highest score of 82 this week with Dallas to go.

This managers current overall rank is 20k and total points of 1,482.  His TV is £105.7m.  He has used his free Hit and Bench Boost

His last 3 seasons are 2k, 7k and top 500.  He has 9 of the 12 template players.  His template replacement player for Coufal is Justin, his template replacement player for Bamford is Watkins and lastly Rashford for Son.

The combined 10 top FPL managers teams

Here’s a team which tries to make a combination from the most represented players. Please note that it is meant to be a menu of players to help you choose your transfer rather than a realistic team and it’s value is not necessarily achievable.  This week it is achievable by some at £106.4m

  1. Hi Geek were you planning on doing an article about the doubles/chip strategy this week pls? Apparently we get to know the gw26 doubles this week. So be good for thoughts on chips for people that still have FH or don’t have it or who still have WC etc. Think u normally do such article. Thanks Lee
