KPI Midfield Analysis

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Paul

The last few Gameweeks have seen a number of midfielders stepping up in performance and offering us alternatives to the template picks. As Fantasy managers reassess their options and roll out the winter wildcards, we thought we’d turn to the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in the members section in order to assess their current form:

We’ve hand-picked a number of midfielders across the price brackets for this article. Those whose displays have hogged the headlines in recent matches are joined by the popular Fantasy options as we compare their KPI statistics from the last six Gameweeks to the first 16 league matches of the season. For those members unfamiliar with the KPI stats, as previously explained, they focus on the frequency of key stats or events in order to track player form.

  1. Flanagan a better option than Vlaar?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. Probably not tbh

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
      1. Why so? Surely has better CS potential. Just depends how long Johnson is out for + if he can replace sissoko that won't matter.

        • 9 months, 9 days ago
        1. Better CS potential? Put down the pipe.

          • 9 months, 9 days ago
      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  2. Hurry up FPL deadline.

    At least being on WC gives me something to do. Not really. :(

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  3. He might have got an assist but I just can't see anything in Ozil whatsoever..He's not worth 10 mill in FPL and not worth 10 mill in real life..let alone 40 mill.. He's damn near bordering on idle. Wishire and Ramsey are better players than he is...and by quite a distance.

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. I wanna get rid tonight, just got no idea who for for a punt.

      Maybe Willian or Lampard, but we won't see Chelsea line-up before deadline

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
      1. Well you have my two punts for the week already...

        • 9 months, 9 days ago
        1. exactly, not a lot left since I own the 2 guys at the top of your list already.

          Might check Newcastle's defensive stats, as Snodgrass' stats look good

          • 9 months, 9 days ago
    2. this is just wrong

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    3. I'm sure he will have his moments, he has undeniable quality but is like you say, lazy.

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
      1. I'm sure he will but who knows what's going on at the moment..he's straight forward poor at times. I loved watching him earlier in the season but he's like a different player now.

        • 9 months, 9 days ago
    4. I'm just going to wait him to explode with two double-figures points in a row

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    5. You can't base your entire opinion on a player from just a handful of games, his vision is incredible, there aren't many that even come near to his quality

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    6. May not be worth 10m on FPL, but certainly worth 40m, he involves every player in the game. Gels the whole team.

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
        • 9 months, 9 days ago
    7. Take a quick stroll through his history he's worth every penny of the 40 mil. It's his first season in the PL and he's done rather well and he's still very young. Once he becomes a little more consistent he will be golden

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    8. If only you could combine the attributes of Ozil and Lennon
      Ozil thinks and doesn't run while Lennon runs and doesn't think. Neither are good options for FPL.

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  4. Best 4.9 or under Mid ?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. Puncheon
      Ki
      Noone

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
      1. Have Johnson, so that leaves punch and noone. Does zaha's arrival threaten noone's playing time?

        • 9 months, 9 days ago
        1. possibly, but reckon he might play on the other wing

          • 9 months, 9 days ago
          1. Whee does that leave whittingham?

            • 9 months, 9 days ago
      2. Totally agree with the No one comment

        • 9 months, 9 days ago
        1. In what way do you agree?

          • 9 months, 9 days ago
          1. No one under 5 million

            • 9 months, 9 days ago
  5. Advise for this GW? Thinking about Negredo > Bony/Benteke?

    Marshall, Speroni
    Koscielny, Coleman, Kolarov Chester, Ward
    Hazard, Silva, Lallana Januzaj, Ki
    Suarez, Negredo, Giroud
    2M in the bank.

    Messed up my WC by not bringing in Aguero! maybe in 2 GW's i will get him in.

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  6. Which two would you pick for a WC team out of the following:

    A. Johnson

    B. Eriksen

    C. Cabaye

    D. Lallana

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. Cabaye and Lallana

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    2. cabaye & eriksen

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    3. Cabaye seems the most popular so. Thanks.

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  7. Best 2 cheap keepers that rotate please? ....Quite Like Speroni/Marshall myself...?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. Adrian and Mannone

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    2. Rotation's not bad but I don't see many Cardiff CS's.

      Speroni & McGregor isn't bad, but Hull have some tricky home games. Foster & Boruc is a bit dearer but looks pretty decent...

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  8. Jan Aage Fjortoft ‏@JanAageFjortoft 18m
    Re: Draxler

    I understand that Schalke and Arsenal have agreed a fee.
    If he will leave now I don't know. But this is latest info
    #afc

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  9. Quality by Kos..he's quick, did just enough there.

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  10. at what minutes Podolski will get his hattrick?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. Any minute now.

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  11. Bony or Benny?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  12. Coventry should have scored by now.

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  13. New Post
    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  14. Is either of Yaya or Ozil worth 10m?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. Yaya is.

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
    2. Ozil if he is a bit more consistent

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  15. Ok, Arsenal play everyone in the the top 7 in the next 11 gw's is Arsenal defence really essential? probably not but i'll be getting one nonethless.

    I have Chesney in goals (bought at 5.6m, now 5.8) but thinking wise to sell for cheaper rotation on WC e.g. Boruc/Mannone and get Koscielny (5.6m) instead for the next 2, at least.

    Is this a good move??

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  16. What would you do with this lot and 2 FTs?

    Mignolet / Kelvin Davis
    Fonte / Mertesacker / Terry / Ward / Coleman
    Redmond / Yaya Touré / Januzaj / Barkley / Özil
    Suárez / Giroud / Lukaku

    2 FT, £1.4m in the bank.

    Upgrade migs and giroud?

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
    1. or am i kidding myself and need hazard

      • 9 months, 9 days ago
  17. RMWCT:

    Boruc
    Coleman Azpilicueta Kos
    Hazard Silva Erikson cabeye
    Agureo Suarez Welbeck

    Manone Januzaj Ward faye

    • 9 months, 9 days ago
  18. My team
    Cech(speroni)
    Sagna,delaney,mertesacker(lawton,coleman)
    Johnson,hazard,cabaye,yaya(puncheon)
    Adebayor,sturridge,welbeck
    Is this team ok or not

    • 9 months, 8 days ago
  19. Which set of players would you have?

    A) speroni, ward, ozil and sturridge

    Or

    B) boruc, Flanagan, lallana, rooney

    • 9 months, 8 days ago
      • 9 months, 7 days ago
  20. Anyone else who still hasn't hit the WC ?

    Or am I the only one ? :D

    • 9 months, 7 days ago
  21. Crazy to go with this defense on a WC?

    Mannone / Adrian
    Koscielny / Sagna / Bardsley / Parr / Burner.

    It ensures i have 3 playable defenders every week.
    Will start both arsenal players only when there is a plum fixture, otherwise just Kosc will play.

    Thoughts?

    • 9 months, 7 days ago
  22. Hello,

    Any thoughts on my WC draft would be highly appreciated.

    Boruc Davis
    Coleman Terry Ward Collins MOlsson
    Hazard Mata Silva Cabaye Jedinak
    Suarez Aguero Bony

    Thank you.
