    I believe Assists are determined by the OPTA definition which is basically the 'classic' assist of who played the final pass to the player that scores.Fantasy Assists include extra things like being fouled for a converted penalty/free kick, having a shot saved/hit the woodwork that gets followed up, etc.Someone might be able to give a comprehensive explanation but that's the gist. » Read

    He came on as a sub right at the end of the game and didn't touch the ball once - the average position is plotted based on player activity so he doesn't register. Guess it defaults to 0,0 on the grid in those circumstances. » Read

    Haven't checked but I assume it's Man Utd - it usually is. » Read

  5. Great Expectations - Paul Pogba 1 day, 15 hours ago

    He went up to £9.0m!http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2012/07/19/fpl-player-list-analysis-the-midfielders-2/"Over at the Lane, new boy Gylfi Sigurdsson mirrors Rafael Van der Vaart’s 9.0 price tag after the former averaged 5.7 ppg at Swansea last term, while Gareth Bale comes in at 9.5, after accruing 195 points in the previous campaign." » Read

    Maybe up to 8.0 which would make him just a bit too much for me sadly.It didn't work well when he moved to Tottenham 5 years ago - he never nailed down a place so was a complete non-option in FPL. If he nailed a place at Everton then it would be interesting - might get a few more attacking returns simply by being in a better side but probably wouldn't hog the bonus so much and would have a fight on his hands for penalties. I prefer him at Swansea personally. » Read

  7. Scout Report - Mathew Ryan 2 days, 12 hours ago

    Oh yes, I ummed and ahhed for most of preseason then finally went for Graham and Kacanliklic instead of Petric and Michu.Michu and Petric both scored twice, Graham and Kacanliklic points dodged spectacularly. Didn't buy Michu until January.Bad memories 😥 » Read

    I remember Ashley Young getting in a lot of people's teams for GW1 somehow a couple of years ago - that was a shocker. » Read

    2015/16 was a good season to pick your team based on pre-season: http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/comment/12183990 » Read

  10. The Numbers Game - Burnley 2 days, 15 hours ago

    I started with Kane instead of Ibra last season and regretted it. Not sure what I'll do this season but the Wembley factor does put me off a little - reasonably well documented that teams' home form suffers the season they move grounds. I don't usually pay the slightest attention to ownership either which probably makes me more likely than most to see this as a realistic option. » Read

    Mbappe at Arsenal and Aubameyang at Newcastle will really mess things up. » Read

    Lingard and Fellaini instead? » Read

    All good - let us know if you see more! » Read

    Thanks for flagging these up - will bring to the attention of Mark/Ed/Mat who should be able to do something about them. » Read

  16. Great Expectations - Sadio Mane 3 days, 13 hours ago

    Yeah - agree to disagree - my basis for being sceptical of how good he will turn out to be is that he was behind a terrible defence! Wouldn't be the first time a 'keeper shines in a poor team but then looks average in a better team. » Read

    🙂Just thought it would be nice given he's being called overrated above - took a punt! » Read

    More telling as a proportion of the shots faced though - Pickford's raw volumes are high because he was so often in the action, his pro rated figures for things like caught saves, etc. are pretty bad. » Read

  20. Great Expectations - Sadio Mane 3 days, 13 hours ago

    Yes - very poor on that. » Read
