Fantasy stats: a focus on the lesser-used KPIs and custom table options

Quite a lot of Fantasy analysis on these pages focuses on the same core group of statistics: key performance indicators (KPIs) such as shots on target, shots in the box, big chances and key passes.

There is so much other data available to subscribers in our Members’ Area, however, something that we as editors perhaps overlook too often in our dissections of the underlying stats.

With our half-season memberships available for £10 as of today, we have taken this opportunity to alert new and existing subscribers to some of the lesser-known KPIs and custom search options that could influence our thinking as Fantasy managers.

    So, Eriksen > Salah for a -4 was always my plan. May have to pull it sooner than I wanted as Salah close(ish) to a rise.

    But Eriksen's form and favourable fixtures is tempting me to keep him. Wish I could turn Pogba into Salah instead but 1.1 short of that.

    Such a dull choice to make this week-

    A. Hamer to cheap CPL goalie
    B. Patricio to 4.8 gk
    C Save
    D. Something. Anything more interesting!

    Patricio
    TAA Doherty Digne Wan B
    Salah Pogba Hazard Fraser
    Aguero Auba

    Hamer Success Hojeburg Bednarek (yes the bench is awful) 1FT 0.3 ITB

    Thanks fro any thoughts

      A get a cheap playing GK for Hamer. Hennessey in trouble now for Twitter photo

        Something over nothing....his response makes logical sense - way more likely than him thinking it would be a good idea to do that salute in a team photo.

      Yeah having a bench fodder mid + forward and being forced into playing a 4-4-2 every week is not ideal... so

      C) Save and look to bring in either a 5th mid or 5th striker. Aguero or Auba out to free up funds for that

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Totally agree!
        Something like
        Auba and Hojeberg to
        Jiminez and Eriksen works.

        Just feels wrong!

  3. Atimis

    Best option for next week ?

    A) Salah (c) Hazard Martial
    B) Hazard (c) Son Sane

    In B would get Salah next week. I've been thinking that maybe it is worth keeping Son for one more and Sane could be good for next 3 City games?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      A.
      Think im right in saying this week is the last week for Son for a while. And A is better anyway imo!

    Morning all, was planning on saving this week to have 2 fts next week but my bench looks awful. What would you do?

    Fabianski
    AWB Kolasinac Robertson Digne
    Salah Hazard Son Pogba
    Kane Jimenez

    Hamer Doherty Ings Hojbjerg

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Looks fine, save and next week Ings right down and Son to Erik (if you dont have the cash itb to do it)

    2. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      save.

  6. Trovsmash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    help on this decision please

    A. Rashford & Cedric - (own Pogba)

    B. Wilson & TAA (Own Robertson, down't own Fraser)

  7. unitednations

    Suggestions here? have 1ft and 2.7m

    Fabianski -- Button
    Alonso • Holebas • Digne • Schindler -- Doherty
    Hazard • Rich • Pogba • Son • Anderson
    Kane -- Jimenez Kamara

    A: Son + Anderson >> Salah + puncheon (-4) and start Jimenez (not ideal) and play 442 unless I downgrade alonso and upgrade next few weeks to move to 343

    B: Son + Anderson >> Salah + Redmond (-4) and continue with 352 but ideally I think 343 might be better as not too many other mids between 5-7m range if the Redmond punt backfires

    C: Alonso + Son >> S.Morrison (good fix, very attacking) + Salah (-4), stick to 352 with Anderson but getting rid of alonso before NEW seems wrong

    D: something else (son > sterling for free) but then how do I get salah

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Save and next week Son, Anderson, Alonso to Salah, Luiz and cheap mid?

    2. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      How much does Alonso to TAA free up? I'm guessing not enough. I like C out of those anyway - Alonso should definitely be the make-weight because you don't want to be forced into playing 4-4-2.

      1. unitednations
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        That will only be for a 2 weeks

  8. beetlejuice
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Those getting Guita as 1st GK, you are not worried about next 2 games of Palace? WAT, Liv
    Is Etheridge better option?

    1. George James
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I’m undecided between the two at the moment

      1. beetlejuice
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I am leaning towards getting Etheridge for the next 2 at least. Palace fixtures is a bit meh to me.

        1. George James
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Trying to look beyond that to be honest. Only worry is the occasional Guaita / AWB double up

  9. MaticMVP
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Alonso, Holebas and Hamer out for Luiz, TAA and Guaita good -4 transfers?

      I have Fabianski, Doherty, AWB and Lindelof in my defence(Benching Lindelof this week ofc).

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Good moves

      2. F_Ivanovic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        What?! No. Why are you spending 3 transfers and taking a 4 point on defensive transfers. Absolute madness. Just move Alonso to TAA or something to free up funds.

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Actually this is correct!^

          Just do the first 2 moves if you really want and leave the gk one. No hit

          1. F_Ivanovic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            I don't see why people are obsessed about Luiz. At 5.5 he was good value but 5.9 is just a little too expensive when there are so many good cheaper options.

        2. MaticMVP
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Cause rest of my team is pretty good...

            Hazard, FAnderson, Richarlison, Salah, D.Ward(not played all year but no problem)

            Kane, Rashford, Jimenez

            1. MaticMVP
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Guess I'll just do Alonso and Holebas to Luiz and TAA. Wait and see tonight, not risking a TAA injury.

                1. F_Ivanovic
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  You might be happy with it now but things change all the time. Transfers are precious and hits shouldn't be taken for defenders ever. But yeah - wait and see now esp as TAA already gone up

          Would like to bring in Salah C. 2ft 0itb. Any ideas appreciated.

          Fab
          Alonso, Rob, Doh, Awb, Bennett
          Hazard, Son, lingard, Rich, Brooks
          Kane, Aub, ings

            You'll have to give up one of Kane,auba,hazard to get salah

              Alonso to TAA
              Lingard to Salah
              Auba to cheap attacker like Deeney, Mitro, Barnes

              Then next week Son to Pogba

            Looking for a cheap striker for an Auba replacement. 6.6 to spend.

            Mitrovic or Deeney?

            1. QuintonFortune25
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Or Barnes? Fantastic stats of late.

            2. JT11fc
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Mitro will be involved in almost every fulham goal so gets my vote

                Why not keep Auba?

                kamara and upgrade elsewhere

                Mitrovic out of them. Both Deeney and Barnes are traps. Guessing you already have Jimenez.

                  It's amazing managers are loosing Son after accumulating 88 points in the last 8 gameweek's he's started. That's 11 points per gw!

                  He has United next and as much as they have improved under OGS, Spurs are on top form as well and Son is playing as a striker for them. Definitely going to keep for this gw and maybe loose after, not before.

                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    I imagine a decent few are knee-jerking out early because of the fixture (thinking it's bad when in reality it's not) but getting rid early can make plenty of sense if it's to bring in players that you plan on getting in anyway who also have a great fixture. Particularly if you are thinking of captaining the player you bring in. eg. Son > Salah

                        It’s very different, but feel I could shoot up in the ranks with a heavy defence since everyone is going cheap.
