Quantifying the impact of FPL decisions with chip season arriving earlier

Fantasy Premier League managers should make themselves aware of how much impact each of their decisions have on their overall performance.

For 38 Gameweeks every year, we are all making choices, determinations and judgements about our teams, each of them affecting our success and/or failure.

I have done a little bit of research into how we can quantify the impact of each of these, with a specific focus on the captaincy and chips.

After all, the 2019/20 campaign will bring chip season to us much earlier than usual.

Liverpool and West Ham both have no fixture in Blank Gameweek 18 and could have a double-up of matches in a Double Gameweek very close to that.

Furthermore, the first-ever Premier League winter break in February will split one Gameweek across seven days, with five fixtures at one end of the week and five at the other.

Before I go any further, I just want to clarify that you should not take the numbers mentioned below as gospel, as there is only so much research that can be done on the subject.

I simply want to give my view and stimulating some interesting discussion for the Fantasy community to consider.

Playing FPL forces us to make several decisions each week, some of them high impact and others low impact.

For example, swapping a £4.5m defender based on upcoming clean sheet potential is a low impact decision, in my opinion.

You’d expect a 10 to 20 point swing on average over a period of four or five Gameweeks, I’d imagine.

Moving Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) to Sadio Mané (£12.2m) or Harry Kane (£10.8m) for a hit so that you can captain the Spurs man is a high impact decision.

This is where 10 to 20 point swings happen perhaps in one Gameweek alone.

I was recently talking about how this season has offered more big hitters than normal and setting your team up to switch through these by keeping set and forget players in your team could be a potentially good strategy. That way you are giving yourself the best chance to make high variance decisions week on week chasing the right captaincy hauls, although I appreciate this tactic is not for everyone.

In my opinion, the chips available to Fantasy managers are also of high impact across the course of the season, despite some disagreement on this issue.

I know some people who believe that the chips don’t matter too much as they influence only between two and three percent of our overall score at the end of the campaign.

However, I don’t see it that way, even if twice Triple Captaining Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) in a Double Gameweek, for a hat-trick each time, I might be guilty of bias in this area!

I will admit that it’s hard to disagree successful chip deployment only influences a small portion of your overall score.

Let’s assume that serious managers score somewhere between 2,200 and 2,300 points in a good season.

A great Triple Captain is probably worth 25 points (if you only choose to count the additional 25 points that the chip is giving you on top of a normal captain in a Double Gameweek).

A good Bench Boost should be worth around 20 to 25 points, so if you nail this chip and the Triple Captain that equates to roughly 50 additional points, admittedly a small amount numerically.

However, I don’t think assessing your Bench Boost and Triple Captain based on the percentage of your total score is the right way of looking at them, as you might unfairly downplay the importance of getting them right.

When you consider the concept of high and low impact decisions already discussed about strategy from week to week, you probably make a total of 140 to 150 of these in the whole campaign.

  • Initial team (15) + 2 Wildcards (30) + 1 Free Hit (15) = 60 decisions
  • 38 captains = 38 decisions
  • When to play your Wildcards + 3 Chips = 5 decisions
  • Transfers over the season = 35 – 55 depending on your hit taking appetite (I made 50 odd last year)

A lot of these decisions are low impact ones. The high impact ones, in my opinion, would be all 38 captaincy decisions (your Double Gameweek captains in particular) and your chip choices.

Perhaps a better way of looking at the points generated from these decisions is not about your overall season score, but the impact they can have on rank.

After all, finishing as high as we possibly can in the world rankings is the most important aim for many of us.

I spoke to several people in the Fantasy community about how they got on in 2018/19 so I could get a general idea of how points correlated with rank last season.

  • 2502 points – Rank 237
  • 2250 points – ~Rank 125k
  • 2150 points – ~Rank 500k

Each season, most of us hardcore managers will be aiming somewhere between the 2,250 and 2,500 point bracket.

That’s a difference of 250 points. This is the variance we should look at in my opinion.

On average, most seasons, the difference between all managers like us will probably be at a maximum of 250 points.

Keeping this in mind, let’s begin to attempt to quantify the impact of various decisions we make.

The first one we need to look at is captaincy. Last season, I scored 2,377 points, of which 573 of those were from the armband (24%). That’s quite a sizeable portion.

If you were to take these points out of the equation then I would guess that the difference between all serious managers would go down to about 150 to 200 points instead of 250.

So, to define the percentage impact a single decision makes, I think it’s better looking at it out of 250 points and not 2,300 points because that is the standard gap between most serious managers.

We had four Double Gameweeks last season, in 25, 32, 34 and 35. Here’s how I got on for the captaincy:

  • GW25 – Aguero TC – 57 points
  • GW32 – Aguero – 20 points
  • GW34 – Lukaku – 4 points
  • GW35 – Sterling – 16 points

So the remaining captaincy total was 476 points spread over 34 rounds, an average of 14 points per single Gameweek. The average captain score per Double Gameweek for me last season was 24.3 points.

My own scores aren’t going to give exact impact variance but I am attempting to get a range of variance possible.

It must be said that 14 and 25 points respectively are not huge number when looking at your overall points but when you look at the 250 point range that exists for most serious FPL players, we are looking at a variance of 6% impact for single Gameweek captaincies and a 10% impact on Double Gameweeks.

You might argue that you already have the player that you are captaining in your team anyway but if you look at big hitter chasing to try getting the best captaincy hauls week on week, you’re looking at an impact of 5-7% in single Gameweeks and 9-11% in Double Gameweeks.

If you think about it, we actually pick that captain for 42 matches and not 38 in a four Double Gameweek season like last year.

This further elevates my view of the Triple Captaincy chip as well.

It eliminates a lot of skill in the game and makes things very luck dependant for one single decision out of 150 decisions you make in an FPL calendar year and it is one that in my opinion has the potential to be the highest impact decision you’ll make all year.

Just last year, I the Triple Captaincy on Aguero while my main mini-league rival went with Leroy Sané (£9.3m), who failed to deliver.

That led to a difference of 50 points. 50 points in the space of seven days. I was trailing him by exactly that much before the Double Gameweek and took the lead after it.

This was 50 points out of the 250 points bracket, which was a 20% variance impact that I had on my FPL team.

Yes, you could that you’re only adding one additional player to your team with the Triple Captaincy, but if you play it in the right week, you’re potentially getting two of them if he’s playing twice.

Furthermore, if you’re chasing in your mini-league getting lucky with a Triple Captain differential in a Double Gameweek is a very very potent weapon as it can make that 20% impact out of the overall variance that exists between serious managers.

Your Triple Captain decision is a combination of two decisions which is the use of the chip itself and the choice of captaincy.

These two decisions, out of a maxiMum of 150 in my opinion, is roughly 1.3% of choices you have to make across the course of the season – and they have the ability to cause that 20% variance. That is huge.

Mini-leagues and extreme rank variances can be caused by these decisions. That 50 point impact can be the difference between 10k and 40k in a season.

So trying to revisit and tabulate these decisions, here is a summary (the variance could be a much higher range):

  • Captaincy decision – 5-7% variance amongst serious managers
  • Captaincy in a DGW – 9-12% variance amongst serious managers
  • TC in a DGW – 15-20% variance amongst serious managers

I think that is all I have to say on the matter for now. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong but I do find it interesting, enjoyed writing it, hope you enjoy reading it and look forward to discussing this with you.

    Seriously considering these moves:
    Tammy KDB Mount -> Alli Pulisic Jesus (-4)

    These 3 are nice differentials, I'm trying to get ahead of the curve.. thoughts?

    Will give me:
    Pope
    TAA Soyo Tomori
    Mane Alli Pulisic Maddison
    Vardy Jesus Rashford

    Bench: Lund Cantwell Rico

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I doubt Tammy will be out for more than just one game by recent comments. Would hold. You have the same bench as me and that can certainly survive Tammy being out.

    2. In and Out
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      If you’re miles behind then go for it

    3. Blanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I'm looking at KDB and Tammy to Pulisic and Kane.

      A risk worth taking for you, imo. I always bemoan the decisions I don't make rather than the ones I do.

    4. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Nah, that could be ahead of the curve in the wrong direction. I'd rather have KDB over Jesus all day long.

      1. yakirh
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        KDB over Jesus across all season - no doubt!
        KDB over Jesus for the next 5 GWs while Kun is out and Jesus is on pens - not so sure..

        1. Devo-McDuff
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          It could work out but it is very punty with not much to back it up. Kun could be back before 5 GWs, Jesus (or City really, and that’s a City fan) isn’t in particularly good form and has (badly) missed his last 2 pens.

  2. The Man Pastore
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Pope Button
    TAA Chilwell Lundstram Lowton Kelly
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount Cantwell
    Vardy Abraham Wilson

    2FT/ 1.9ITB

    Abraham + Wilson --> Jesus + Ings ? Yay or Nay?

    That would leave me with 1.8ITB

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I would be tempted if Tammy is out plus you have Mount who will hopefully play

    2. Brehmeren
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Do it.

  3. grooveymatt65

    (lost on the last page)

    Hi guys 

    what do people think of: Sterling, De Bruyne and Abraham to Son,Pulisic and Kane for -4?

    current attacking team is:-

    Mane De Bruyne Sterling Maddison Stephens

    Vardy Abraham Ings

    thanks guys! 

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Dont like it to be honest. Loosing double City for double Spurs under Mou is too much risk

  4. iL PiStOlErO
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Bottomed.

    So if Tammy is out long term would you do Auba & Tammy & Maddison to Vardy & Rashford & Pulisic for -4?

    The team is:

    Pope Button
    TAA Lund Soyuncu Rico Guilbert
    Salah KdB Son Maddison Dendo
    Auba Tammy Mousset

    2ft, 0.1itb

  5. Will Kane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Bottomed....

    Hi all. I'm thinking that rather than replace Tammy I will upgrade Lowton or Rico and play 4-4-2 whilst he is out.

    Money is no object - so who to go for? The only limitation is that I already have triple Leicester.

    TAA, Soy, Lund, Rico*, Lowton*

    I'm thinking Robertson - but would like some other suggestions.

  6. Teror
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 9 days ago

    Selling Abraham on my wildcard is a no brainer, right?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      If he is out, yes

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      On WC and still not sure..if its just one game I can easy bench and as reports say "its nothing serious" so why sell?

      1. Teror
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        I'll wait for the presser but if he's out for a week he could miss 2 or even 3 games. Considering he's 50% owned, if my replacement (Jesus or Rashford) bangs then it'll be a huge boost to my rank

  7. dshv

    Captain

    Vardy
    Kane
    Mane

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Kane

    2. Teror
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      It's all a matter of how spicy you want to be. Vardy and Mane are safe options. Kane is more of a gamble but with a potentially higher pay off.

  8. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Playing around with wc. How does this look?
    Ryan button
    Robertson soy Lund rico Williams
    Mane kdb son pulisic traore
    Vardy tammy ings

    1. Teror
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Bit of a waste of funds to have both Ings and Traore. You can't play a 253 formation and It's hardly a small sum of money to bench. If I'm going with three proper strikers up front I wouldn't want my fifth mid to be any more expensive than Cantwell.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        But at the same time, we are already seeing injuries and perhaps rotation. So a good bench could help field 11?

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          Agree - nice team.

  9. Aubaaaaa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Who would you bring in, Kane or Son?

    1. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Son. Cheaper, in better PL form, goals worth more points.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Son. Not convinced Kane is going to be attacking enough and he's very expensive with nowhere to turn if he doesn't fire.

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Son.

    4. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Son

    5. Teror
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Son

    6. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Personally I would go for Kane. I just have a feeling he is going to go on a really good run.

    7. In and Out
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Son

    8. adamtheyido
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Kane

  10. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Got 2 free transfers

    A Tammy to Kane and Diop to Williams ( and use all of 2.6 m in bank) ( annoyingly .1 m short of Kelly!)- or

    B Tammy to Mousset and Cantwell to Son and play 5 in midfield

    C Tammy to Jesus and KDB to Son

    D Diop to Aurier (play over Söyüncü) and carry one transfer

    E Any better option?

    Pope
    TAA Söyüncü Lundstram
    Mané KDB Martial Mount
    Vardy Jiménez Tammy

    McGovern Cantwell Rico Diop

  11. Stoichkov#8
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    "Ward out for few weeks"
    Who would you pick on WC:

    a) Kelly
    b) Rico

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Neither. Taylor from Burnley

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        got 4.1 (Rico is 4.1 in my team atm)

      2. HarryB29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Palace fixtures are way better than Burnley

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          Also this. But Kelly expiry date worries me.

          1. GARY AND JAMIE
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 9 days ago

            As a Ward owner I can go Pieters to Kelly to keep Ward. Guarantee a Palace RB pretty much, albeit only then having 4 defenders to pick from

            1. Stoichkov#8
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 9 days ago

              True but they can simply buy someone in January so expiry date will be even faster than Ward being fit again.

              1. GARY AND JAMIE
                • 6 Years
                7 months, 9 days ago

                January is about 8 GWs away though...its a decent time to have a fix for imo. Could be some competition in the CH areas soon and PVA is a bit dear for me.

        2. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 9 days ago

          That is true. But Kelly lost his place. It is short term investment.

    2. Teror
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Kelly

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Im afraid Kelly will be a dead wood in few weeks in my team :/

    3. Nailed Jesus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Depends which GW you'd need him to play

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Well no need to play him at all 🙂
        But with busy time he may be handy with some unexpected rotation.

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      You already have Rico. Stick. He's gonna play, and if not, he's good fodder that won't eat up funds.

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Rico being nailed is important thing as he will be my bench player anyway but Kelly 4.1 also doesnt eat up funds.
        Also with many games comming I may need my bench and Kelly has much better fix than Rico. Thats the thing.

          1. Stoichkov#8
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 9 days ago

            They can simply buy someone in January so his expiry date will be even earlier than Ward being fit again.

            1. HarryB29
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 9 days ago

              Well theres 7 gameweeks between now and January 10th, almost 20% of the whole season, pretty significant number of games to be nailed on for

    5. ASOUSA12
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Kelly, you can always move to Williams when Kelly loses his place

  12. Hochoki
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    what's the cut-off score for ffs cup qualification??

  13. phily4321
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Pope,
    TAA, Lundstram, Willems, Soyuncu
    Mane, KDB, Sterling, Mount
    Vardy, Abraham,
    Bench: Button, Rico, saka, Connolly

    A) Sterling > Son
    B) Sterling & Willems > Son & Robbo -4
    C)Sterling & Connolly > Son & Jimenez -4
    D)Roll transfer and re-assess next week

    My head says keep sterling for one more week, my heart says go for son

  14. GARY AND JAMIE
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Got a feeling the 9m strikers are due the big hauls over Xmas - could be the FLV of the month...

    1. Aleksei
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Laca and Rash will get some goals, no doubt

  15. KingOllie
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Is Son AND Kane too much ?

    Could be a huge rank booster if both of them haul

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Possibly - GW19 onwards certainly looks the prime time to be Spurs-heavy, so getting them in early could be profitable.

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Why not wait and see who plays after not even one week of Mou and do it GW19 then?

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          That's what I'm doing - is a risk at this stage for sure.

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 9 days ago

          Pretty sure Son and Kane are gonna play.

    2. Aleksei
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I would choose one

    3. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I'd rather double up on the mids

      1. KingOllie
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Son and Lucas? Or you thinking Alli

        1. Pukki Party
          • 2 Years

    good article, captaincy is very important, like many of us I failed to choose the right one in half occasions with my captains blanking 6 times out of 13. So need to pay closer attention to it, I think sticking with one player is not always good.

    1FT, £0ITB
    Pope

    Button, Tammy, Rico, Connolly

    WC must be

    TAA Lund Soy Kelly (Rico)
    Salah Mane Pulisic Son (Cantwell)
    Mousset Ings Vardy

    2.0 itb now
    without a doubt

    1. Dr. Agabuse

      Ings could be Jimenez bit fixtures worse or he could be Greenwood/Conolly and Cantwell becomes Maddison

      I don't have a WC but this is near enough exactly the team I'm heading towards.

    Thoughts on wild card
    Gazzaniga/McCarthy
    TAA/chilwell/aurier/lundstrum/rico
    Son/salah/maddison/david silva/cantwell
    Vardy/ings/jiminiz

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years

      Would do Mousset over Jimenez and use funds elsewhere.
      Wouldnt want D Silva for xmas schedule and try to fit Mane.

      My Idea of a WC is bellow

  20. Pukki Party

    Best option?

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Digne Lundstram
    Salah Sterling Mount Martial
    Tammy Jimmy

    Button Rico Greenwood Saka

    A) Tammy, Saka to Ings, Moura
    B) Tammy, Digne to Vardy, Baldock
    C) Digne, Saka to Soyuncu, JWP

    Can anyone else see the United v Spurs game being low scoring? Starting to think maybe it's best to wait until GW16 to bring in a Spurs player.

    1. Dr. Agabuse

      Bit this week Son could make up for it

      I'm most likely doing the same depending on issues like the Abraham injury length

    Ryan Button
    TAA Tomori Söy Lundstram Rico
    Mane KDB Sterling Pulisic Cantwell
    Vardy Abraham Greenwood
    No ft. Abraham to Jimenez for a hit or just WC?
    The plan was to WC GW19 or 20 after dropping Liv in GW18, getting them back on WC

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I think WC is only possible until 19

    If Tammy is out for a while, who’s going for a Jesus punt?

    I can do Tammy to Jesus for -4 after doing Sterling to Son before his rise

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      7 months, 9 days ago

      Would not punt on Jesus. Would rather Firmino, Rashford or Kane. Probably in that order.

      I've got a ft and funds to do it....am sorely tempted

    Have 2FT so playing with a lot of diff ideas...

    A: Tomori + Mane + Mount + Rashford
    B: Tomori + Mane + Pulisic + Jimenez (-4)
    C: Tomori + Sterling + Son + Ings (-4)
    D: Robbo + Son + Mount + Rashford (-4)

    Leaning towards D as the most balanced option but no Mane could be real rank killer esp if lots Captain him

    Have I missed anything to do with the FFS Cup? I don't remember seeing an article about who qualified etc.

      The admin around the FFS cups has gone completely to pot over the last couple of seasons.

        Oh okay cool I just wasn't sure if I'd missed something.

          I think a mod posted that 60 was the qualifying score

          1. Okeeffejude123
            7 months, 9 days ago

            I got 70 so at least I'm in then 🙂
