Fantasy Premier League Transfer Tips GW32 – Analysing The Teams Of 10 Top FPL Managers


,

Here’s our fantasy premier league transfer tips GW32 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

’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 GW31 Sunday

There were 5 green arrows and 5 red arrows

The average points score in GW31 after Sunday was 46 net of point deductions for extra transfers.

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers is 47k.

The median overall rank was 9k

The average total points are 2,024.

The average team value was £105.3m.

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 and Rudiger are in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Alexander Arnold and Shaw are in 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

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 10 top managers favour (>30%) Son more than the top 10k

The top 10k favour (>20%) Lingard more than the 10 top FPL 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.

Chelsea defence – Rudiger

Villa defence – Martinez

Man City defence – Dias

Fernandes

Son

Salah

Jota

Kane

That’s 8 players. Iheanacho is owned by 6 so given his form and their fixtures I expect him to be template next week

A couple of wildcards

Here’s the 2 highest scoring wildcards

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 not achievable at around £108.0m
