KPI Analysis – Robin Van Persie

A fortnight ago, we rolled out a Preview Movie of the latest addition to our Members Area – the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) tables. Essentially, these track the frequency of certain key statistics that can help Fantasy managers identify a player’s form – whether it be a turn for the good or worse – over a Gameweek range or season. With this in mind, our first KPI focused members article looks at Robin Van Persie’s first season at United compared to his final year leading the line for Arsenal.

By tracking Van Persie’s frequency of key stats, Fantasy managers can begin to quantify and identify the exact areas of the Dutchman’s game that have altered since his move to Old Trafford last summer as they prepare potential investment for the season ahead.

        32 transfers per season.
        5 captain changes per season.

        the transfers can be used to change your captain without losing a captain change. I am not touching those keepers.

          I wasn't suggesting you did.

          A Europa team will get you more Sunday games than most. For Saturday games, you probably want a team that will be televised as little as possible. So a Stoke, Norwich, Hull.

            Yeah considering Lloris and Ruddy. Should be good for CS's. Lose a point for every goal conceded and get nothing for saves. Jaask instead of Ruddy if money allows.

      Don't really know anything about the guy. It seems that he won't be first choice but he's scored well in preseason. Worth monitoring, if he can come off the bench in the league and score he could be of more use than Thomas.

    REPOST:

    Gents please help needed!! i CANT decide which team to have

    A. Team with defenders from 3 big teams and basically no bench options (thomas)

    Speroni / Boruc
    Collins / Toure / Terry / Zabaleta / Chester
    Thomas / Lampard / Coutinho / Hazard / Walcott
    Lambert / Dzeko / Giroud

    FT, £1.5m in the bank.

    B. team with cheap defense and the nice headache of choices and who to bench (i dont mind)

    Speroni / Boruc
    Collins / Turner / Yanga-Mbiwa / Clyne / Chester
    Silva / Lampard / Coutinho / Hazard / Walcott
    Lukaku / Dzeko / Giroud

    FT, £0.0m in the bank.

    C. Kind of combination of the above two with mirallas as bench and kolo, mertesacker

    Speroni / Boruc
    Collins / Turner / Mertesacker / Toure / Chester
    Mirallas / Lampard / Coutinho / Hazard / Walcott
    Lukaku / Dzeko / Giroud

    FT, £0.0m in the bank

    My first draft of my team for the start, going for a no Bale and RVP team

    a) I'm not confident in that bale will be here for the start and if he is his mind will be diving into other thoughts.

    b) RVP is really just to expensive to shoehorn in

    Tried to go for a more balanced team this year and try and avoid making an extortionate amount of transfers and hits and early wild cards.

    Does this team look ok or is it to much of a bandwagon team?

    My feeling/ Negredo is first choice. Pelegrini signing scored 25goals in La Liga. Dzeko is obviously the back up. no matter what Pelegrini says. Mark my words. I am gonna love the Negredo punt if Sturridge is still injured. We will talk when the season starts but surely surely Negredo is above Dzeko in the pecking order for strikers when City comes to discussion

    Kun, Jovetic, Silva, Navas all can play on the flanks or as in out strikers

    Thoughts.. ? .

      Ive been monitoring Dzeko and im not going to take the risk as already planning on having Lukaku so having 2 none nailed on forwards is too much for me.

      got to go with what pellegrini said. Will look rather stupid picking negredo and he doesn't start on the Monday night

          yeah I would say so. That's assuming he's fit for the start of the season which I think he will be considering he returned to training about a week ago

      Nice article guys, interesting new tool, be cool to see what we can get out of it.

      Still 95% sure on going without RVP.
