fantasy premier league transfer tips GW6 – Analysing the teams of 10 top FPL managers 


,

GW5 saw 4 of the 10 top FPL managers use their wildcards.  You can see all of them here.  Here’s our fantasy premier league transfer tips GW6 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.

This article was written before Mondays GW5 games.  I will update the article after Monday

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 Sunday GW5




There were 7 green arrows and 3 red arrows

The average points score in GW5 after Sundays games was 71.

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers was 393k.  That’s 237k better than last weeks average of 630k

The median overall rank was 238k

The average total points are 316

The average team value was £101.3m.

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 is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Steer, Alexander Arnold, Lamptey and Mitchell are in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Robertson, Walker Peters and Dallas are in 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Justin is in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

McCarthy and Foster are in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by team

Villa are represented 13 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Liverpool and Southampton are represented 11 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

C Palace, Brighton and Leeds are represented 6 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Leicester are represented 5 times in the 10 managers teams

Wolves are represented 4 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Midfielders

Son is in 10 of the FPL managers teams

Salah is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Rodriguez is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Grealish is in 5 of the FPL managers teams

Bissouma is in 4 of the 10 managers teams

Pulisic is in 3 of the 10 managers teams

Forwards

Calvert Lewin is in 8 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Kane is in 6 of the 10 managers teams

Jimenez, Brewster and Mitrovic are in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams




GW5 Captain Choice

4 managers captained Kane

3 managers captained Salah and Son

The FFGeek Captain Poll showed 27% were captaining Kane and 26% Salah and 18% Son

Formations

6 managers played 3-4-3

3 managers played 3-5-2

1 manager played 4-3-3

Transfers:

Wildcards have distorted this week so I won’t do this

The top 10k overall rank vs the 10 FPL managers

I won’t be doing this for a few weeks until it becomes less volatile

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.

Liverpool defence – Robertson

Southampton defence – Walker Peters

Villa defence – Martinez

Salah

Son

Rodriguez

Calvert Lewin

That’s 7 players.  Given Kanes score this week I think he’s likely to be added this week

One managers team

Having given 4 wildcard teams this would seem a bit pointless

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 at under £100m
