Fantasy Football Scout are planning to produce more members articles than ever before in the 2019/20 season.
With memberships for the new campaign already available, we will be writing about the key features in the coming weeks.
In 2018/19 we committed to publishing 130+ members articles and by the end of the season, we had written 150.
Those signing up to membership this time around will able to enjoy even more than 150.
For those who have never had Scout Membership before, members articles are ones which are more reliant on the data than usual pieces of content.
They are also accessible only by those who have signed up for the Scout Membership package.
These articles tend to include screenshots of important numbers, comparisons or heat-maps.
We endeavour to use these to answer some of the biggest questions in FPL each Gameweek.
In order to help potential new members fully understand the advantages, we have opened up three of these articles from the closing stages of last season for public consumption.
The first of these was an investigation into Jordan Henderson‘s new role at Liverpool.
We noticed that Jurgen Klopp was deploying the central midfielder in a more advanced position within his 4-3-3 system.
So we compared his first few appearances there to how he fared beforehand in order to see what impact it had on Fantasy.
What we discovered was that Henderson’s points potential had increased and that he was also boosting Mohamed Salah’s threat too.
After releasing that article, we noticed a continued increase in Henderson’s points per match, while Salah went on his best run of the season.
Ahead of the final Gameweek of the season, we conducted research into Nathan Redmond.
We compared his underlying statistics both before and after the arrival of Ralph Hasenhüttl to show that he could be trusted with a Gameweek 38 match against Huddersfield.
In the end, the Southampton midfielder secured a 10-point haul to finish off 2018/19 in style.
We also use members data to analyse the captaincy every week. For that reason, we have also included the Gameweek 38 instalment of Captain Sensible as part of our free to the public offer in preparation for the 2019/20 season.
Each week we assess which Fantasy assets have been posting impressive underlying statistics.
For example, we like to see which players are registering a large number of shots on target, or are being presented with large number of big chances.
In order to weigh up the quality of these chances, we also use expected data.
Then we analyse the data surrounding each team’s attack over the last four matches, as well as the defensive data of their opponents.
Our research into the latter has proved successful this season when it comes to identifying whether opposition teams are look likely to be thrashed or not.
Finally, we compare our findings against that of the Rate My Team tool which uses an algorithm to make points projections for each Fantasy asset.
