Javi Gracia seems to be bringing EPL another boring, defensive team. Good for cheap FPL defenders, but not great for Richarlison, Gray or the general viewership of EPL.
We are seeing a lot less penalties awarded than previous seasons. What should we do for FPL?
Here's a couple of things to keep in mind as the FPL season starts in full. Hope you like it and let us know what you think. KThx
News came out early on July 7th that Joshua King will be a registered £7.5 Forward for the 2017-18 season. He was a red-hot OOP player last year that bagged 16 goals and cheap as shit. But, how does this new evaluation of both price and position effect his potential? I try to figure it out...
This is a new year. You’re sick and tired of losing your mini league to the same damn person every single year. You’ll have a plan, you’ll stop taking too many four point hits to catch up, you’ll have a captain strategy this year and stick to it! You’re going to be clear and concise, you’ll have the discipline to efficiently move from gameweek to gameweek. Maybe, somehow, that will be enough. You’re right.
I took a look at the Bonus Point Index from last season in preparation for this upcoming 2017-18 FPL, but it wasn't telling me a lot. Accumulated BPI doesn't tell me how good players are nor how many bonus points they'll get. So, I did a little spreadsheet-ing and created a pretty cool metric that shows the true value of BPI, Bonus Points and the efficiency of FPL players. Hope you like it.
There were two interesting examples of OOP (out of position) players in FPL last year: Marcos Alonso and Boring James Milner. One benefited from being OOP; the other struggled for any fantasy points.
Read my analysis of what the actual value is for OOP players from a fantasy Premier League perspective.
With Mo' Salah's arrival at Liverpool - what are we to make of his fantasy output? A speed merchant with a poacher's sight at goal, he could be a very attractive addition to any fantasy team. But is he a forward or a mid? Will he be an 8.5 or a 10.0? All of these will factor into his end value.
In the end, Liverpool fans are excited.
