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.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Dont gamble

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  3. Looking at getting a replacement for Tevez next week but need to consider options first. Any Suggestions greatly appreciated. Possible options so far...
    a) Ba
    b) Defoe (already have Bale)
    c) Suarez/Aguero (but need to downgrade Snodgrass first)
    d) Other options that I haven't considered

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Berbatov,Benteke or Hernandez...

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. defoe berba or torres

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Ba. Proven goalscorer, fixture-proof too.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  4. Mata vs silva?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Is that a serious question?

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. nice

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Boring

      • 1 year, 11 months ago

      1. which is.....?

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. That one that scores the most points. The one I got rid of a month ago when Rafa benched him.

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. Juan Mata.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  5. Repost:

    A bit restricted with any changes I can make, but good to go?

    Jussi
    Cuellar – Shorey – Davies
    Mata – Michu – Silva – Bale
    Suarez (v) – Berba – RVP (c)

    Bunn – Cameron – Sterling – B Jones

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Silva? yuk

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Why not?

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. shorey probably wont start

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Best to risk it, or start Jones against Man United?

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
  6. Bego McCarthy
    Enrique Davies Demel Cuellar Nelsen
    Sterling Bale Silva Taarabt Michu
    RVP Suarez Aguero

    1FT .6 in bank.

    A) Cuellar – > Sagna
    B) Silva – > Walcott/Santi/Mata
    C) Other?

    Getting annoyed at my City total failure taking up so much of my bank, planning to do Aguero – > Ba come gw 21. No matter who he plays for.

    Also want to kneejerk in Berba after ‘Keep calm and pass me the ball’ :D

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  7. Is it worth going SWP & Rafael > Walcott & Davies (-4).
    Leaves me with
    Bego (Jaask)
    Enrique Nelsen Davies
    Bale Michu Mata Walcott
    Berba Benteke RVP(C)
    (Moses)(Clyne)(Ridgewell)

    Cheers

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. yep

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  8. Most people holding on to Michu even if he's out for up to 3 weeks?

    I'd only get 7.4m if I transfer him out...

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. He's not out for 3 weeks though...

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. got him GW 2 or 3... too much cash to lose on a player Playing OOP

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. I'm the same and am keeping.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. See this is the kind of shite that annoys me about this website.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. It's ridiculous isn't it.

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        • 1 year, 11 months ago
      2. +3

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
      3. Out of 3 weeks? Too many bull shitters around tonight :lol:

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. Your the bull shitter

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
    5. out for 3 weeks? damn

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    6. Whoa 3 weeks..better get rid now!!

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Michu confirmed out for the rest of the year. Please go to the nearest high window and jump out.

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. Hahahahaa, nice one fella

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
          1. +42 :)

            • 1 year, 11 months ago
        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    7. News isn't confirmed yet....If you bought him early, wait.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    8. I hear bale and van persie are out for rest of season too.

      What will everyone do?

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    9. do you think it's time to start smashing each other's heads in and feeding on the goo inside? #panic

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. My ML leader is doing it, so I may be forced to to keep pace.

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    10. Wow didn't think panic would ensue.

      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.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  9. What are Baines owners doing? Surely it's time to ship? Or hang on for one more.. :cool:

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. discussed earlier, conclusion get rid

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Other fish to fry but he will get a few more games as I sort out his replacement. He'll be gone by the WC though :(

      Might be a silly q but how do you do the 'shades' icon

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  10. RMSquad?

    Begovic – Foster

    Jose Enrique – Sagna – Davies – Clyne – Gorkss

    Bale – Mata – Walcott – Michu – Sterling

    RVP – Suarez – Berbatov

    Cheers!

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Ok, I'll say it again, it looks great.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Nice, maybe you could do something with Sterling - Enrique duo

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. You ask for a lot of RMT's...

      It looks fine btw

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. Looks great. This is more or less what I aim for with my own team. Gorkss --> Demel (when fit) for the DGW maybe....

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  11. 1. Michu > Walcott (FT)

    2. Sterling + Tevez > Walcott and Benteke (-4)

    Best option people?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Rest of team

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  12. so i just went for a shower there..come back on and michu is getting his ankle amputated?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. will he keep his foot though????

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Yep get rid before his price falls hehe it's a goldmine hehehe yehaa!

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. yes, thereby rendering his foot useless as it will no longer be attached to him

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Is there a rule that the scoring foot has to be attached? He could use it as a bat.

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. 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.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  13. worth doing a -4 hit to bring walcott instead morrison?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. what james morrison! yes do it! ive been trying to get rid of him for ages!

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  14. My team for next week:

    Begovic
    Baines / G.Johnson / Vertonghen
    Bale / Silva / Walcott / Taarabt
    Suarez / Torres / Berbatov

    Foster / Puncheon / Nelsen / Shorey

    1 FT & 1.2 in the bank

    I'm considering Silva to Valencia

    Any thoughts?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. no, valencia is poor this yr....why not Mata?
      or ditch shorey

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  15. Most people holding on to Michu even if he’s out for up to 8 weeks with hamstring & medial ligament damage?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Those people are just saddos

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. It could be a tumor.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  16. Hi guys,

    3.1M in bank, 0 FT, any hits needed?

    Begovic
    Evra, Luiz, Demel*
    Sterling, Michu*, Bale, Young
    RVP, Tevez, Berbatov

    Jussi, Snodgrass, Cuelllar, Cameron*

    Thinking Walcott in for Sterling?

    cheers!

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  17. Some thoughts:
    AVL vs top 5: conceded 25 in 6 games
    AVL vs rest: conceded 11 in 13 games
    AVL fixtures: WIG swa SOU wba NEW (i.e. no top 5 in sight)
    So I'll be getting Clark, even though he's shipped 12 in 2, as I need a nailed on defender with good fixtures.

    Can't wait to do Fellaini for Yaya in time for EVE vs new SWA sou WBA AVL

    Wanted a Wilkinson yellow at the weekend, just to see how Stoke would line up and cope -3 regular Defs

    Kenwyne Jones slowly turning back into a Beast? A 5.0m Beast!

    Feel sorry for Newcastle and all their injuries. Midfield vs ars likely to be:
    Cisse Perch Tiote Bigirama Marveaux

    Evra can't keep scoring but will keep conceding, not interested in the slightest at that price

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. great post timing fail

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  18. When is Rafael back?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. get rid!!!!

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  19. Personally I don't see the RMT as a good addition. It removes the entire point of the game

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Ikr everyone would have the same team then...

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Exactly! There would be no questions like "who should I go for Silva or Mata?" etc. Its all well and good researching yourself but to have it as a common thing makes it quite boring and predictable

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
  20. What would win in a fight -- a Honey Badger, or a Wolverine?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago

    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.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  22. Is Defoe or luiz going up tonight?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. No, not tonight

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  23. hi all,

    Used 1 ft, but thinking of swapping shorey for J. O'Brien or B. Davies...my team is currently:

    begovic
    caulker, Enrique, Gibbs, shawcross, shorey
    taarabt, Mata, bale, sterling, michu
    rvp, benteke, Suarez

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  24. what number is the ffs team does anyone no?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  25. I hate myself for doing this but I've bought van Persie, which I swore I'd never do. It's only because Rooney's injured and I had money spare.

    So how am I looking for this GW?

  26. Where can I find the FPL ID number?
