Being able to visualise future moves has been key to Aleksander Våge Nilsen’s successful Fantasy Premier League career.
Each season he creates a spreadsheet that allows him to see his best line-up in any given Gameweek.
Based around fixtures this bespoke Rate My Team tool has helped Aleksander pinpoint the optimal times to ditch players and the best replacements.
It’s clearly been a great asset in his Fantasy management armoury, with two top 500 finishes, another in the top 2,000 and two overall ranks just outside the top 10,000, to put him fifth in our Live Hall of Fame.
This season his trusty spreadsheet has been particularly fruitful, seeing him rocket to 104thin the world.
During our chat, he also reveals how following top Premier League players on Instagram gives him vital knowledge before deadlines and why having a full squad of players helps him avoid unnecessary hits.
He also explains why Norwegians, who take up 13 of the top 100 places, are so good at FPL and how being a Liverpool fan has proved costly in the past to his overall rank.
Guided by his spreadsheet he also gives a rundown of his next likely moves, with impending blank and double Gameweeks set to influence his decisions.
The chat with Aleksander is available to view on Youtube here and in the embedded video below.
