How premium options compare with best-ever FPL scores: Harry Kane

In this short series over the international break, we will be comparing some of the top premium options against their best-ever FPL campaigns.

With big fixture swings approaching in Gameweeks 15 and 16, Fantasy managers will have to make sure they are in possession of the right expensive options.

As Tottenham Hotspur are one of the teams with an appealing schedule on the horizon, we have started this series with their star striker Harry Kane (£12.4m).

Kane’s best-ever FPL season was recorded in the 2016/17 campaign when he scored 29 goals and assisted seven others.

Those figures combined for a total score of 224 points, 33 of which were registered through bonus.

The England captain gave a valiant effort in trying to follow up that career high-score in 2017/18. His 217 points last year were just seven short of the previous campaign.

So far in 2018/19, Kane has amassed 61 points at an average of 5.08 per game. If he continues at his current rate he should record a total score of 193 points, which would be the fourth-best of his FPL career.

    What stats are the most important in your oppinion? Put in order:

    A) chances created
    B) % in team goals
    C) return per min
    D) number of shots
    E) number of shots on goal

    1. Limited & Mediocre Mana…

      xG and then not much else after that

      1. Nose for baps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 11 days ago

        xA is the second though. Not to be underestimated .

      2. Sharkytect

        xG feels like someone else has done all the stats work for you. I like it

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      F goals & assists & cleanies

    3. Skull And Gnomes 9

      Eye test.

    4. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      DEA imo

    5. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Start with goals and assists
      Then look at shots and chances created
      Then look at shots on target and big chances created
      Then look at xG and xA

      The point being that a player might have lots of points, but it might not be supported by underlying numbers so you look at those players who are performing points wise and then check that they can continue.

        This is helpful. Cheers bro

    6. FPL Opinion
      3 months, 11 days ago

      The underlying stats about stats is they are overrated but definitely helpful for those who don’t know much about football (i.e. those with no eye test ability and knowledge of the game)

    Interesting player ownership data (Overall vs. Top5K):

    Agüero: 52% vs. 89%
    Hazard: 44% vs. 86%
    Salah: 36% vs. 76%

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Template:

      Fabianski - Hamer
      Robertson - Alonso - Mendy - Doherty - AWB
      Hazard - Salah - Richarlison - Fraser - Hjobjerg
      Aguero - Arnautovic - Wilson

      1. thischarmingman
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        11/15 for me

        1. diesel001
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          12/15 for me. Have Sterling, Patricio and Success instead of Fraser, Hamer and Aguero

      2. Pierce34
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        9/15 - I thought my team was pretty template but evidently not as much as I thought. I also had Fabianski before he became template, which is why I've been telling everyone not to get him.

        11/15

    2. Sharkytect
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      So to break into the top 5k, should i be choosing different players?

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I’m not sure what conclusion to make other than the simple observation that there are massive differences in some of the players the Top 5K choose and other managers.

  3. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Best replacement for Mendy if he’s ruled out?

    A) Laporte
    B) Digne
    C) Balbuena

    Rest of the defence includes Ryan/Button, Alonso, Robbo, Doherty & Awb.

    1. Woy_is_back
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not C. Went for that two gameweeks ago and already regret it.

    2. Prøfeßor Bear …

      A for me, mate.

      1. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers PB!

        Does look like the safest option and good value for money.

        1. Prøfeßor Bear …
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Agreed. City have arguably the best defence in the league, there's no way I'm going without.

          1. Liber
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            No they don't. But they do hide the ball well.

    3. Athletico Timbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      A

  4. Woy_is_back
    • 1 Year

    Any real injury news? Not those fake international ones.

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Maureen's pride is hurt.

      Confirmed.

  5. DarkSideOfTheLoon
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    This team and 2 FTs.

    GKP: Ryan (Button)
    DEF: Alonso, Doherty, Robertson (Bennett) (Wan-Bissaka)
    MID: Martial, Kenedy, Hazard, Mané (Kayal)
    FWD: Vardy, Agüero, Lacazette

    Which one makes more sense:

    A) Vardy + Mane to Arnie + Sterlng
    B) Vardy + Kenedy to Arnie + Richarlison

    Thanks a lot!

  6. Eytexi

    Priority for December and January: Man City or Arsenal attack?

    1. The 12th Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Man City all season.
      Everton 19-26
      Spurs,Arsenal Dec,Jan

      1. Eytexi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks! This helped clear up a few other debates too. More specific question: Laca or Sterling for December and January (no Aguero)? (Just a plan atm).

        1. The 12th Man
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Aguero stays for me. Considering Hazard or Salah > Sterling or Dilva in a few weeks.
          Dilva would enable Wilson > Lacazette
          Rich stays for me right through to the new year unless bad injury.
          Leno,Digne,Bilva also on watchlist.

  7. Halmari Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Guys - More likely to score points in the next 8 GWs
    Lucas Moura or Harry kane? ( of course please consider the price )

    1. Athletico Timbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I got Moura a while ago thinking he’d keep up with Kane and I was right, they both scored nothing. To answer your question I think it will be Kane.

    2. Sharkytect
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Kane (what do you mean by "consider the price"? Who will score most points-per-million? Moura)

  8. Scotty B
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Delph England captain oh my word!

  9. SuperHam
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    What are your thoughts on Leno?

    4.8m for a ‘top 6’ keeper seems like great value, and as he showed last week he is capable of making plenty of saves.

    I know Arsenal aren’t considered the most resolute of teams, but historically they must keep a reasonable number of CS across the season - more than non top 6 sides anyway?

    I have Patricio atm but might make the switch on my wildcard in a few weeks’ time. Feels like a good move for only 0.3m more!

    1. Halmari Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      You never know when Cech or Leno will start. Theres no no1 keeper in arsenal. Leno was only starting because Cech was injured

      1. SuperHam
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Do you think so? By GW15 we should know who is number one anyway

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      You can get Holding for 4.4, probably as nailed as Leno atm plus you csn rotate him.

      1. Halmari Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Honestly i dont think arsenal has a set number 1 keeper. Plus Arsenal i believe have only kept 2 Clean sheets - i would steer away. for .3 lesser you can get a keeper which gets many save points

    3. Liber
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      They are not really solid. Will get some odd clean sheet. Had Monreal this year. Got me one goal and one clean sheet.

    Listened to the podcast and I find myself wanting an Everton defender. Would be my 4th "premium" defender, or perhaps ditch Mendy 😮

    1. PepSala
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      My thoughts exactly..Coleman is looking good

      How serious is the Mendy injury?

    2. The 12th Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Digne

      1. thischarmingman
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah, Digne and Keane got the shout outs in the Scoutcast

      nice. always been frustrated by marco silva's reputation as defensive krptonite, was fine for watford until he was forced to play a 4th or 5th string defence, let alone second string. what are you expecting from defences with wague, mariappa, zeegelaar etc? and sorry but what's he meant to do with that hull team?

      now everton aren't having to play the 36 year old version of jagielka, 33 year old version of baines and holgate they've improved. obviously.

      1. soup natsi

        that hull defence had maguire and robertson.

    4. Skull And Gnomes 9

      Is that the effect the Scoutcast has on people.

      I'm putting it on my banned list alongside Fox, CNN and the BBC.
