Moneyball – Ricardo Vaz Te

In a new series of articles for members, we explore those unfashionable, unwanted and unexciting players who don’t necessarily come with You Tube clips or Armani ads but deliver that all important quantity which drives the “Moneyball” strategy: comparative value.

The term “Moneyball” found its way across the Atlantic for many with the arrival of John Henry, whose Fenway Sports Group added Liverpool to their holdings list alongside Henry’s great pride: the Boston Red Sox. Henry’s Red Sox failed in a bid to hire Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A’s and chief proponent of the so-called Moneyball strategy but, using Beane’s approach to player acquisitions, went on to deliver their first championship in 86 years. Henry’s attempts to replicate his success on Mersyeside by applying certain principles to player analysis under Damien Comolli failed to have the desired effect, however.

Despite popular opinion, the lessons of Moneyball do not start and end with saving money or looking for one particular attribute in players, but rather looking for players discarded by the wider market, either because they succeed in an uncommon way or because they do so in a particularly unfashionable manner.

Given that most Fantasy managers spend a large portion of our money on just a handful of players, we, too, are forced to invest for value at the bottom end of our squad and in that arena we have to accept imperfection if we’re going to achieve success. Finding the right assets to fill the budget gaps in our squads can prove vital; the Moneyball series is here to help – to investigate the lower end market and attempt to find diamonds in the rough.

Using the Moneyball concept and the data available to our Members, we’ll attempt to identify and analyse players who perhaps appear “imperfect” solutions but, in fact, offer strong potential for those with limited funds.

    Going away from Football for a minute, I see Ricky Hatton is making a comeback with a face like his cant look any worse with a few more punches lets face it, but if he was to cross paths with Amir Khan who do we think would be victorious?

          About to hit the button on getting Snodgrass in for N'Zog on a 1 week punt.

          Has the two week break sent me totally mad?! :)

                Less of a threat minus Carroll.

                I want Morrison but don't fancy them this GW, probs would be better to go straight to him but Snodgrass has tempted me.

                  Morrison also looks good. I'd bring him in this week because you don't want to waste two transfers going from N'Zog ➡ Snodgrass ➡ Morrison.

                      My head says that sounds like the right thing to do, I could even save the transfer and just play Cuellar this week.

                      But I've just got a hunch that Snodgrass will deliver the goods this GW! I shouldn't need the transfer next week for anything else bar injuries, and I've had enough of them to last a season!

                        Too much money invested in defence there for my likening, although the defenders you have are good for attacking returns, with clean sheets at a premium I think I would lose Verm and keep Baines, Arsenals fixtures are pretty dire apart from this week for the foreseeable future, then would upgrade Vaz Te a decent forward will always over the course of the season tend to outs core a decent defender.

                          Hmmm, Verm has tricky GW 5&6 agreed but I think he'll outscore Baines over the season. Food for thought though, ta.

                                                        I'm going Berba. I can always be safe (and boring) later on in the season when I'm trying to salvage a decent rank 😉

                                                      They will do well... like Totty & Bale and his awesome stats. It's just that I should have had Hazard instead....

                                                      Unfortunately nothing. I guess Kolarov is a risk, but he IS temporary until i get Sagna 😀

                                                          Yeah, I'm not too sold on Kolarov, but A looks better.

                                                            Fletcher? i rate him as a VERY good striker. But Sunderland have been creating few chances compared to Fulham, and Berbatov is a very good player,

                                                        .1 in bank

                                                        Foster/Begovic rotate very well, as do Boyce/Cuellar and Davies/Gorkss. Baines has the fixtures to play every week until GW15. Guthrie sits on the bench every week.

                                                            I like.

                                                            I'm not sure about rotating Boyce/Cuellar as they just seem too expensive for that. I've gone for Baines, Rafael/Gibbs and Davies, Cuellar, Demel

                                                              LOVE IT. It;s very nice, would you not prefer Demel over Gorkss though? He seems to be rather attacking 😉

                                                                Maybe but Gorkss has perfect home/away rotation with Davies and Reading have a DGW at some point (though probably not for quite a while).

                                                                I actually have nothing in the bank, not the .1 I said above, so can't afford Demel anyway.

Thinking of going Jenk to Baines and Graham to Lambert for a hit, I have 3.5 in the bank, so I can get Baines for Jenk easily. Then the following week, I can downgrade Cashley to McAuley/Saylor/Shawcross and it'd be all fine?

In the meantime I think McAuley can outscore him by at least 4 and make me a little money as well. If Wigan do crap in the next few weeks I can change my mind about backing them too.
