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.

    GW 15 midweek game can see Aguero getting rested ahead of the weekend gam at Stamford Bridge. May be worth considering the switch to Kane then.

      Agree on this.

      If he wants to rest him it will be in a Home game eg. Bournemouth.

      Watford away is not an easy game.

      Do we think Kane is going to play on the Sunday and the Wednesday in front of the meat of the December fixtures?

      1. Paddington Bear

        Yes

        ... I think I’m going to take a pass on this one.

        If fit, Kane will play every minute.

      something with Kane-Laca-Arnautovic frontline

        Aguero has four very good games from 17 to 20 though.

        1. He shoots he scores
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Aguero rotation risk over the Xmas period?

        I think there's too much emphasis on getting Kane/Spurs in given how they're playing in comparison with City players. Between now and the end of January City have 12 fixtures and two of those are tough (LIV home, CHE away). City have kept clean sheets in three of four fixtures against the 'big 6' teams and on their day can beat any team pretty comfortably. Spurs look lacklustre and Eriksen can clearly not play two games in a week. Without him they don't look the same team and as a result with Kane having to play deeper I'm not convinced he's worth 12.5, even with the fixture run.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          good points well made.

        2. Pegboy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Somewhat agree with this. Lets wait and see whether Eriksen and Alli get back to full fitness. Spurs don't currently look on the verge of exploding, but I still feel he's the safest captaincy option over Xmas.

      Is David Silva viable? KDB out means he’s playing in a further forward role and I’d say he was one of the more nailed on players.
      I’m looking to do these transfers between now and gw16/17
      Holebas > Laporte
      Bennett > alderweireld
      Salah > David Silva
      Murray > Kane
      Ings > kamara
      With 0.1 ITB.
      My team would then be
      Fabianski
      Alderweireld robbo Alonso Laporte
      Mane hazard richarlison David Silva
      Kane arnautovic
      Bench wan bissaka diagana and kamara.
      Apologies for the long post but thoughts??

        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        General thoughts are Kane can be downgraded to Aguero or auba if either of them start going mad but spurs’ run just looks too good to ignore. Also Ben Davies is cheaper than alderweireld but is he as nailed on?

        1. b82rz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Davies will get rotated more but imagine he'd potentially still score more points. Looks decent, I'd maybe be tempted to swap Silva for Alli and keep Aguero though, assuming he's fit by then.

        2. Pegboy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Davies is nailed at the moment (and rested during international break) as Rose is still indefinitely injured. Neither is playing well though.

      2. Ghost Gooner
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        You'll need playing subs over nov/dec so I wouldn't do these

      3. Eat my goal!

        Better subs needed for Xmas period

    3. b82rz

      1 month, 2 days ago

      Couple of transfers to make, plenty of time to go yet but what would you go with:

      A)
      Ryan (Hamer)
      Alonso Mendy Robertson Doherty Digne
      Salah Hazard Richarlison Diangana Kennedy
      Wilson Arnie Aguero

      B)
      Ryan (Hamer)
      Alonso Robertson Doherty/Digne Bennett AWB
      Salah Hazard Richarlison Martial Diangana
      Wilson Arnie Aguero

      If B would you go with Doherty or Digne?

      Thanks!

      1. Steiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I'm in a similar position myself, and was thinking exactly the same transfers, so I'd go with B.

        Digne personally, as you have Bennett for cover.

      WC’s in GW15/16...

      1. Who are your top targets?
      2. Who are the players that are certain to stay?
      3. Who are your differentials?

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Only bringing in Tippier at the moment.

      2. Holmes
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        1. only laca and kane as of now
        2. maybe arnautovic and wan bissaka
        3. lets see, no differential target at the moment. may try some double or triple ups for differential

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I'll be looking at double City attack, a Spurs defender - probably Trippier - and some West Ham coverage - look at those fixtures! I'm really tempted to bring Kane in too, haven't owned him all season but he's a massive differential in the in the top 10k. Arsenal also have some nice home games but it's going to be hard fitting everyone in

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

        1) Kane, Laca, Martial
        2) Alonso, Haz, Doherty, Rich
        3) Potentially Schurrle or Sess (depending on how the new look Fulham shape up in the meantime), Holding

    5. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Would you shift Trippier for two games and get him back afterwards?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Has Liverpool away in gw 14 and Newcaslte in 15 just when I would get Trippier back mmm..

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                True. Should add that I will prbl keep Digne and get Trippier back in GW15 (WC then most likely)

                1. Tshelby
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years

                  All ready used my WC so don't know if it's sensible to get rid of Trippier for two games.

        1. Tshelby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Laca seems to be more nailed

        we will need spurs players with those great fixtures, but which one ?
        trippier seems best value but is he worth having with some rotations in busy period ? he has started each game since gw 2, after a rest from WC.
        kane is expensive but more nailed than kun when christmas fixtures come and will play 90 minutes
        lloris seems fine but prefer fabianski

        1. Pegboy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Spurs defence is going to be tough to predict. Monitor Rose's injury, as Davies may end up being the most nailed. Trippier has been shocking defensively, so Aurier may get a few starts.

          I wouldn't touch any of our midfielders at the moment.

          I'm likely to go for Kane, but somewhat reluctantly, as we haven't looked like blowing anyone away yet.

          1. Jacky boy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Rose will not be out for more than a month
            As "fixtures create form" I think kane will start bringing points
            But 12.4 means aguero + another downgrade

        Its sad to see Doherty waste a chance with Ireland because of a ' facial injury'. Imagine keane's response to that excuse.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Keane would probably punch him in the case if they ever met and say "There you are, you can miss the next match too"

          I've got to say that whilst I love this site and the guys do great work, this article is quite poor in terms of the use of stats (sorry David). None of these stats quoted as changed are significantly different at all.

          Touches per game 37.2 vs 38.2
          Final Third 21.2 vs 20
          Mins per Pass Received 3.7 vs 3.8
          Successful Passes Opp Half 73% vs 75%
          Final Third 76% vs 73%
          Big Chances 0.9 vs 0.8

          Infact if you look at last season vs this season the stats summary comes out 51% vs 49% - barely any different. Whilst I agree Kane is dropping deeper and at the moment doesn't look quite as good a prospect, I think the main concern is that despite having a similar number of shots etc, his expected goals is much lower than last season. This suggests that Spurs haven't created the same overall quality of chances for him yet this season. Missing Eriksen and Alli is probably quite key to that, and I'd expect his points to revert back to normal when they return fully fit.

          I don't want to be overly critical, but I look at this sort of stats every day - I'm an analyst, dont ask who for 🙂 and this is a bit misleading.

              I think so! Don't think I can afford to ignore that run of fixtures and his potential to play most games. Only question is whether it would be for Aguero, or a big upgrade involving ditching Salah/Hazard.
              What do you think?

                I don't own Aguero atm (shoot me now), but I think I would ditch aguero. he just seems most likely to be rotated the most

                  I'm leaning that way I think!

                I'm ditching Aguero for Kane in GW15. Over the Christmas period Aguero will be rotated, and that GW15 midweek fixture against Watford looks very likely that Jesus will replace him. I think it's the best decision.

            Agree with you buddy.
            Now the problem is my salary cant pay for morgage, fooding and my education. Should i get a smaller appartment, eat less or stop going to college?

            I thought the same, but to be fair that's primarily on the Involvement comparison. More noticeable for Creativity (mins per chance created) and Goal threat (mins per goal).

            1. Balls in Behind
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              The chances created is an interesting one, although not the main source of his points. Mins per goal though is a product of the quality of chances he has had - if his expected goals is lower, you would expect him to score less goals. I think its more down to Spurs creating chances as a team than Kane himself. When Spurs have their squad back fit and good fixtures, you will want him in your team!

                1 month, 2 days ago

                Probably right on the team rather than just Kane. On chances created - I haven't checked the stats but think Aguero's a good example of someone who seems to have progressed under Pep from an outright striker getting goals, to chance creator + goal getter. So a changed role for Kane doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing - comes back to team form and game. Perhaps injury recoveries and fixtures will catalyse that as you say - not sure yet whether that will be old Kane or changed Kane.

                  He's definitely not a natural fit for that role, they desperately need Alli and Eriksen back!

            Have to agree, also no mention of relative fixture difficulty across the 12 games which could be material (I haven't looked myself either!)

            Mane to sterling maybe

              good shout with trippier, so far my plan was to get one of mendy/laporte/stones as a replacement in case of serious injury.

              mane to sterling is certainly possible, but pool attack is also scary don't you think?

              1. Klein

                Not really convinced with pool attack. They score 1 or 2 in most games. City score 4+ in most.

            Captain choices:

            GW13 between Salah and Augero maybe martial if you have him
            GW14 hazard edges it ahead of augero/sterling with salah just behind
            GW15 Kane/arnie followed by salah and then hazard then augero
            GW16 auba/laca/martial/arnie followed by Kane/salah
            GW17 Kane followed by hazard/augero/sterling/arnie then auba/laca
            GW18 aubu/laca/hazard/augero/sterling followed by Arnie/martial
            GW19 Kane/martial/salah followed by hazard/augero/arnie
            Gw20 Kane followed by hazard/arnie

            Basically salah only features once in top considerations after GW15 and Kane features numerous times providing he picks up form more so than either arsenal options

              Not convinced by him whatsoever, would rather have Salah than Kane, and can’t have both

              I agree with all of this but got burned badly by Kane captaincy in easy games last year - not sure we can so readily disregard form for fixtures.

              I'd fairly happily default to Aguero/Salah captain in any non top 4 game.
              But think Kane's major appeal will be nailedness when fixtures get very congested. Not sure that's worth 12.4m yet though

              Not worth while to have Kane or Salah if you're not frequently captaining them.

              Captaincy choices (C/VC) for me (Kane, Aguero, Salah, Hazard and Arnautovic rotation):
              GW13: Salah/Aguero
              GW14: Hazard/Salah
              GW15: Salah/Kane

              Just listened to some really poor analysis on the scoutcast re: Man City's skewed away form.
              Looking at the fixtures they've played two more at home (Huddersfield, Newcastle, Fulham, Brighton, Burnley, Southampton, Man Utd) and the away matches were tougher (Arsenal, Wolves, Liverpool, Tottenham) except for Cardiff where they scored 5.
              I mean wtf?

                Not sure about wtf, but do think people too often look for reasons to sell/swap rather than just hold.

                Worth mentioning though that we do point out that Man City's fixtures have been tougher.

                That's the beauty of stats - lots of ways of looking at it.

                Has Aguero's failure to find the net so often against a variety of teams away from home (last season and this) an indicator that he's better at home, happenstance, or all fixtures away are tough.

                All we are doing is present some stats, point people to the direction of the Members area to find there own and spark debate.

                So its great that you have an opinion on this. More debate about stats is a good thing for us!

                Really worth getting Membership to help develop your own analysis as well.

                    There's a clue there that it might be fixture difficulty.

                          Whether Man City and in patic Aguero can as well away as they do at the Etihad is crucial for so many decisions.

                          I currently have the armband on Aguero v West Ham btw.

                      Will managers be replacing Aguero with Lacazette or pairing them together.. My plan is to downgrade Mane to D.Silva and take Arnautovic out for Lacazette.. Currently have Felipe Anderson as WH attacking cover..

                        Replace Aguero with Lacazette? I'm not replacing him with anyone unless/until injured/benched.

                          This what I’m saying I will not either, if people plan on Kane the only way is to lose Aguero

                          I plan

                          Salah Richarlison D.Silva F.Anderson

                            Or maybe lose Salah. I'm not that enthralled by Lacazette personally, but may change my mind.

                                Same. I'll worry about Kane if/when they have a fit team and he starts performing for his price vs alternatives.

                      Doherty injury appears to be worse than initially expected.

                        Sounds like that guy is assuming he's a doubt because he's been ruled out of the Ireland games. Nothing concrete at all.

                        This article is ridiculous. Bailly saying "Nooooooo" on instagram is hardly a tease. Bailly may have even liked the fro for all we know.

                      Really regretting buying Barkley for Fraser.. back then I looked like an obvious I don't mind to rotation but the position he played against Palace was really bad.. Can't find a suitable replacement for him, suggestions?

                        I'm in the same boat. I've had a good run for transfers this year but really kicking myself on this one

                          Totally the same here

                        Richarlison?

                          All ready have him. Just had an idea to look into Martial ( is this knee jurking again?)

                        The only thing that was obvious about Barkley was that he was a terrible pick.

                          Agree to disagree imo. Playing for Chelsea, getting points, really cheap way into the Chelsea side and Fraser had the turn of fixtures. Can't say it was an obvious terrible pick

                      Started watching the Scoutcast Extra this morning but couldn't get through it. Stats don't provide anything beneficial without context, in fact they can do more harm than good when spouted about like that. Stopped watching when Jonty said City are reliant on their home form because they're only 7th in terms of shots away from home. First of all they've only played 5 away games so far, less than a lot of the other teams in the league. Secondly, 3 of those 5 games were against Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham. Obviously their numbers aren't going to look great when you factor that in but context is key. He went on to praise Spurs for having lots of shots away from home. They've played 8 away games, 3 more than City, with only one of them being against a top 6 team. These days I'm spending more time trying to spot and ignore bad advise from the FFS team than actually getting using information from them.

                      TL;DR - do your own research.

                          Yeah, It was pretty jarring.
                          I said similar above.
                          It takes you out of the moment alright.
