Preview Movie – Rate My Team – Part One

Following on from our Hall of Fame preview on Christmas Day, we’re now able to show you a glimpse of the full “Rate My Team” funcitionality that we’re looking to add to the Members Area for the January Wildcards.

Chris Atkinson, the creator of the Rate My Team model, again joins me for this movie, the first of two that we’ve produced to show you have Rate My Team works.

What is Rate My Team?
Rate My team is a statistical model built specifically to assess every player in the Premier League and return their expected values for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points in a given Gameweek. The system is a complex and thorough one which, of course, plots the probabilities of a player’s time on the pitch, their expected number of goals, assists, bonus points, yellow and red cards, clean sheets, own goals, goals conceded and saves. The strength of the opponent they are facing in a given Gameweek is also crucial; so every team has a attacking, defensive rating, every player a probability of playing a given match with injuries, suspensions and international absence factored in.

You can find out more about Rate My Team here, or, of course, in the movie below.

How Can It Help Me?
If you’re a member you can use the Rate My Team tool in a number of ways. Firstly, you can use it as a projections tool to predict what specific players will score, on average, over the next X number of Gameweeks. As you’ll see in the movie, you have a players table that can filtered by position or FPL cost and which can be extended to show any number of Gameweeks. You can also sort on “Value” to find those players projected to offer the best points per million return.

However, this is just one part of the functionality. Rate My Team can also analyse your existing FPL lineup, recommend captains, vice captains your bench and bench order and allow you to model your future transfers. In the second “My Team” movie, we’ll show you this functionality in full.

Rather than post your team in the comments on the main site, our members can now enter their FPL code in Rate My Team and it will immediately offer you an appraisal of your squad. In a nutshell, it should prove rather useful for the January wildcard, when so many of us look to reconstruct our sides. Using Rate my Team you can transfer players in and out of your team and get an immediate appraisal of the impact of that transfer.

When will Rate My Team be available?
We’re looking to roll out the Rate My Team tool for our members on January 1.

      Up to 3 weeks = 1,2 OR 3 weeks. Hopefully for us lot it'll just be the Fulham match. I was merely speculating, cynically expecting the worse.

      This is coming from an Arsenal fan lads...We get the news Diaby/Rosicky are 2 weeks away which actually translates to 5 months.

      I think he's gonna be out for Fulham, but anything else is not concrete at all. Just predictions. The papers are often wrong about injury.

      If you got him late, and aren't gonna lose much cash you can make the trade though. If you brought him early, wait for official news.

    I think this is a fantastic feature. it will help members have the edge over non members. Statistics are what they are... Statistics. Football has a habit of going against all statistics (stoke conceding in the first minute and scoring thre goals anyone?) but 'rate mt team' will stop all the thousands of rmts on here and create new arguments, people arguing against the projected returns and being proud when they ignore the statistics and make different decisions.

    I would personally look at it as an improved match ticker. I don't think it's going to revolutionise this site but I think the projected returns will provide valuable information for members and the stats will be of an asset to people weighing up different options. Great work.
