,

Here’s our final fantasy premier league transfer tips article where we outline how the 10 top FPL managers finished the season. Prior to this season these managers had finished in the top 10k overall rank the last 3 seasons

Fantasy Premier League Transfer Tips – The Final Position Of The 10 Top FPL Managers

Note over the off season I’ll be doing a series of strategy articles focusing on how I play FPL on the FFGeek Patreon site.

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.

A reminder of 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

Here’s how they finished

So you can see from there that they finished the season with an average overall rank of 34k. It’s worth noting that the median overall rank is 13k.

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

The Free Hit team isn’t included. The original team is counted instead

Goalkeeper/Defence by player

Alexander Arnold is in 10 of the FPL managers teams

Dallas is in 8 of the FPL managers teams

Martinez, Forster, Digne and Konsa are in 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Rudiger is in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Mendy is in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by team

I have stripped out non playing GKs

Liverpool are represented 12 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Villa are represented 10 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Leeds are represented 9 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Chelsea and Everton are represented 7 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Southampton are represented 5 times in the 10 managers teams

Palace, Brighton, Man Utd and Fulham, are represented 3 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Midfielders

Salah is in 10 of the FPL managers teams

Raphinha is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Lingard is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Son and Greenwood are in 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Mane is in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Forwards

Kane is in 10 of the FPL managers teams

Antonio is in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Bamford is in 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Calvert-Lewin is in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Iheanacho is in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

The final 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.

Everton defence – Digne

Villa defence – Martinez

Liverpool defence – Alexander Arnold

Leeds defence – Dallas

Chelsea defence – Rudiger

Salah

Raphinha

Lingard

Kane

That’s 9 players. Rudiger and Raphinha were added

One managers team

Here’s the manager who finished the highest in 123rd overall

Fantasy Premier League Transfer Tips

His score for GW38 was 82 -4. His total points are 2,601 and his overall rank is 123rd overall. His team value is £105.3m. His last 3 seasons ranks are 8k, 7k and 9k

He has 8 of the 9 template players mentioned above although his Chelsea defence is Mendy not Rudiger

His template replacement player is

Coufal instead of Konsa

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 would have been achievable by many at around £104.3m
