Here’s our FPL forwards GW22 player rankings article. I’m continuing the new format but as usual there’s a table of stats to help and a spreadsheet that can be filtered how you like to help you make a transfer choice

This is the 2nd article in the player rankings series. There’s also defenders and GKs rankings

All the stats are from the free site understat

New Methodology

I’m trying a new method for the article which is amalgamates my form article with the player rankings article.

I’ve ordered the players by their underlying stats ranking when I convert their xG and xA over the last 10 gameweeks into FPL points for goals and assists. That figure is adjusted for the average minutes played over the last 10 gameweeks.

I’ve then provided a range of different stats to help you choose which player is the best for a transfer in.

Stats definitions

Form s/10/5. These are the form rankings for season, for the last 10 gameweeks and the last 5 game weeks. They are the average minutes adjusted rankings once the xG and xA are converted into FPL points. The lower the number the better the ranking.

Av minutes: The average minutes played in the last 10 gameweeks. Non appearances aren’t counted.

PPM – the fantasy premier league sites points per match.

Fixture ease: this is ranking for attacking players over the next 6 gameweeks from my fixture ease schedule article. The lower the number the better the fixtures

Consistency %: the % of starts where the player has scored a goal or assistover the season. Only appearance of 45 mins or more count

ATGS: the anytime goal scorer bookies odds for GW22 for £1 invested.

VFM: A Value for Money calculation by dividing the theoretical season goal and assist points by the players value. The higher the better.

The schedule ranked by forwards underlying stats over the last 10 gameweeks

Here is the link to the google spreadsheet. You can go to file>make a copy and then sort it how you like.

The schedule is not adjusted for Fixtures however the players fixture ease ranking is included along with a load of other stats.  360 minutes in last 10 required.

Long, Mousset, Carroll, McGoldrick, Jesus

Aguero didn’t have the requisite minutes.

The fixture ease schedule for attacking players

Here’s the schedule which ranks the teams by the ease of the defences they face over the next 6 gameweeks. You can then see the schedule they face if you’re thinking of transferring a player in

Here’s the form schedule in it’s original format
