KPI Midfield Analysis

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.

      Flanagan a better option than Vlaar?

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

            Hurry up FPL deadline.

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

            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.

                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

                      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

                      I'm sure he will have his moments, he has undeniable quality but is like you say, lazy.

                        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.

                          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

                            May not be worth 10m on FPL, but certainly worth 40m, he involves every player in the game. Gels the whole team.

                                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

                                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.

                                                                              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??

                                                                                            Or am I the only one ? 😀
