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?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months 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.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Better CS potential? Put down the pipe.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. I'd say he was

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  2. Hurry up FPL deadline.

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

    • 1 year, 3 months 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.

    • 1 year, 3 months 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

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Well you have my two punts for the week already...

        • 1 year, 3 months 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

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. this is just wrong

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

      • 1 year, 3 months 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.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. I'm just going to wait him to explode with two double-figures points in a row

      • 1 year, 3 months 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

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    6. May not be worth 10m on FPL, but certainly worth 40m, he involves every player in the game. Gels the whole team.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
        • 1 year, 3 months 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

      • 1 year, 3 months 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.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  4. Best 4.9 or under Mid ?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Have Johnson, so that leaves punch and noone. Does zaha's arrival threaten noone's playing time?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. possibly, but reckon he might play on the other wing

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. Whee does that leave whittingham?

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. Totally agree with the No one comment

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. In what way do you agree?

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. No one under 5 million

            • 1 year, 3 months 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.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  6. Which two would you pick for a WC team out of the following:

    A. Johnson

    B. Eriksen

    C. Cabaye

    D. Lallana

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Cabaye and Lallana

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. cabaye & eriksen

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. Cabaye seems the most popular so. Thanks.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  7. Best 2 cheap keepers that rotate please? ....Quite Like Speroni/Marshall myself...?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Adrian and Mannone

      • 1 year, 3 months 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...

      • 1 year, 3 months 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

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  9. Quality by Kos..he's quick, did just enough there.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  10. at what minutes Podolski will get his hattrick?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Any minute now.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  11. Bony or Benny?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  12. Coventry should have scored by now.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  13. New Post
    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  14. Is either of Yaya or Ozil worth 10m?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Yaya is.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Ozil if he is a bit more consistent

      • 1 year, 3 months 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??

    • 1 year, 3 months 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?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. or am i kidding myself and need hazard

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  17. RMWCT:

    Boruc
    Coleman Azpilicueta Kos
    Hazard Silva Erikson cabeye
    Agureo Suarez Welbeck

    Manone Januzaj Ward faye

    • 1 year, 3 months 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

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  19. Which set of players would you have?

    A) speroni, ward, ozil and sturridge

    Or

    B) boruc, Flanagan, lallana, rooney

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  20. Anyone else who still hasn't hit the WC ?

    Or am I the only one ? 😀

    • 1 year, 3 months 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?

    • 1 year, 3 months 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.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
