Why opportunity trumps ability for goal-scoring FPL forwards

Recently I read the book ‘American Sniper’ (bear with me here) which, if you’re not familiar with it, is the autobiography of Chris Kyle, a former US Navy SEAL sniper who totalled a record 150 confirmed kills during his two tours in Iraq.

Reading it, I was surprised to learn that, despite being such a prolific sniper, Kyle was, in fact, considered a fairly mediocre marksman and the reason that he claimed so many kills was actually less to do with his skill and more to do with the number of shooting opportunities he had as a result of being so frequently located in dangerous environments.

Obviously my mind is usually (at least) half on Fantasy Football so, while I was reading this, I started to wonder if a similar principle might be true for top Premier League strikers; whether accuracy is the most important thing when it comes to scoring goals, or is goalscoring more a product of the volume of opportunities that a player has to score.

It occurred to me that the answer to this question might be significant not only for predicting which players will score the most but also for judging form sustainability and true player value.

To try and figure this out I took the average number of goal attempts (a measure of scoring opportunity) and the average shot accuracy of the Premier League’s five top-scoring forwards and compared these to the same statistics for the 10 top-scoring forwards over the last four full seasons.

Does opportunity trump ability in FPL?

The idea was that, if there was a notable difference between the two groups, it could help identify which attribute was most important.

What I found was that accuracy between the top five group and the top 10 one was identical. Both groups on average, were on target with 43.5% of their shots.

However, comparing the volume of attempts, the average for the Top five was 21% higher than the Top 10 group.

So what does this all mean for FPL? Well, it suggests that the number of opportunities a striker has to score is, on average, a more important factor than accuracy in distinguishing the very best strikers.

Admittedly, the idea that more chances equals more goals seems fairly obvious. That said, what I do think is interesting is how this evidence illustrates the conditional nature of skill with respect to goalscoring.

If opportunity effectively trumps ability, we need to put greater emphasis on the context in which the striker is operating as this may significantly influence their returns.

Kane’s goal-scoring form has dropped off ever since he started occupying a deeper role and shooting less often

For example, when we think of Harry Kane (£10.8m), we may think of a striker capable of scoring 30 league goals, as he did in the 2017/18 season, and we might believe that it’s only a matter of time until he does it again, such is his reputation.

But when you look at Kane’s goal attempt statistics (adjusted for minutes played) last season and this current season so far, you can see that they have declined significantly since 2017/18, as has his goal output. Yes, he’s scoring goals, but arguably not at a rate to justify his current cost.

Kane’s shot accuracy has not changed dramatically season over season and there is little to suggest he has become an inherently less skillful player.

Instead, the implication is that negative changes have occurred to the context in which he operates. Spurs and Kane no longer play in a way that is as conducive to maximising his scoring returns, yet he is valued and generally perceived as a premium striker.

Of course, this decline occurred under Mauricio Pochettino and the introduction of Jose Mourinho as manager may well have a positive influence on Kane’s returns though, it’s worth highlighting, that another notable victim of the effects of diminishing opportunities over recent seasons was Romelu Lukaku, who experienced this downturn at Manchester United under Mourinho.

The significance of opportunity volume for goal scoring may, potentially, also be used to predict the sustainability of current goalscoring form and, maybe, even when goals might come.

Often, doing well in FPL relies not being overly influenced by the past or present and successfully predicting what will happen next. Goals scored to date can be misleading as to a striker’s prospects if they are not accompanied by a sustainable supply of opportunities.

Despite all his attacking returns, Wilson has not shot very often this season

Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson (£7.7m), who scored five goals in his opening seven Gameweeks is an example of unsustainable scoring overperformance compared to scoring opportunities.

So far he has registered just 17 attempts on goal in 13 matches so it’s not all that surprising, therefore, that he has not scored since Gameweek 7, yet his early scoring record would have painted a picture of a player who would be expected to continue to score consistently.

Again, context is important. Changes in team strategy, personnel, motivation, confidence, stage of the season and, of course, opposition can all help to create an environment that either stymies or invigorates the number of opportunities that a striker will receive and, it follows, their scoring prospects.

Looking out for potential variations in key factors affecting scoring opportunities can help FPL managers make positive, forward-thinking decisions.

There are some necessary caveats to be made, of course. I’ve looked at a relatively small sample size and, although the trend is apparent and fairly consistent over the time period, it’s probably too limited to be considered conclusive.

Furthermore, while there does appear to be a stronger correlation between goal scoring opportunities and goals scored than between accuracy and goals scored, this will inevitably be one of many factors at play here and, thus, may only be indicative of the apparent trend.

Historically, Vardy has been an exception to this rule although he has started shooting more often in recent weeks

Naturally, for every rule, there are also exceptions, the most notable example in recent seasons being Jamie Vardy (£9.7m). The Leicester man has somehow managed to consistently score lots of goals despite having had a fraction of the opportunities that other top scorers receive, although rather ominously, his volume of shots is actually on the up in recent weeks.

In the opposite direction, you have the likes of Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic who had more attempts than anybody last season (131) and shot accuracy akin to Sergio Aguero’s (36.4) and yet managed only 11 goals, joint 14th for strikers.

Applying all this to my own forwards, I’m reasonably happy with Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) and Danny Ings (£6.0m) who both offer a high rate of attempts per their minutes played (40 and 29 respectively) with good fixtures to come.

How I’m lining up for Gameweek 14

Vardy on the other hand has only managed 31 chances, despite playing by far the most minutes of the three. For reasons given, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise and, to some extent, I’m inclined to ignore it.

What is concerning however, is that his shot accuracy does look unsustainably high, even by his standards (64.5%), which would suggest that at least some regression is imminent.

However, with his coming fixtures, I’m unlikely to be ditching Vardy any time soon, though Wolves’ Raul Jiménez (£7.5m) appears to offer the ideal balance of attempts (41) and fixtures and so offers a strong alternative should I need one.

Finally, it must be said that the easiest way to test this theory and apply it to your own Fantasy team is to use the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area. The tables and comparison tools available there can help you conduct research on the aforementioned statistics with ease each and every Gameweek.

    Still weighing up whether Sterling to Son is a good move, tempted to leave and have 2 FTs next week.

    Thoughts?

        • 2 Years

        It’s Kun being out, his productivity is much higher with Jesus instead.

        He’s also scored a lot in non-PL games during that time.

    2. Totti

    2FT 0.0ITB any suggestion what to do here?

    Gazza - 4.0
    TAA - Robbo - Lund - Janmaat* (Rico)
    Salah(C) - KDB - Martial - Son - Mount*
    Rashford - Tammy* (Greenwood)

    Some options
    A) Mount + Janmaat > Cantwell + PVA
    B) Mount + Tammy > Pulisic + Ings
    C) Robbo + Mount > PVA + Pulisic
    D) something else

    1. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B is great for short term

        Yes good option but cant get Tammy back after...hard decision

  6. unitednations

    0.2m short of sterling > mane. Best ideas?

    Pope -- Heaton
    Taa Lundy Tomori -- RIco Lascelles
    Sterling Kdb Martial Mount -- Cantwell
    Vardy Tammy Rashy

    A: Tammy >> Jimmy
    B: Lascelles >> Kelly
    C: Tomori + Rashford >> Robbo + Ings (-4)...exact funds

    Really tempted by C but will get priced out of it by tomz. If Tammy is out, then A makes the most sense

    1. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      One GK to fodder and Sterling > Mane/Salah + Lascelles > Aurier or 0.1 short?

    Anybody seen much of Djenepo at Southampton? Saw comparisons with Mane and looked bright early on this year

      i would compare him more with ASM...

      quick, tricky, lively, headless chicken, always looks dangerous but often disappoints with end product

    3. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Could do worse for 5.2

  8. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen

    Team for the GW....do I play
    A Mount
    B Lundstram

    Have Abraham and 1FT with 0.5m ITB but can’t stretch to Pulisic...one of the above would come in if I don’t transfer Abraham out...but could also do

    C Mount to JWP or
    D Mount to Moutinho

    1. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Never bench the Lord

      I can see you’re an Arsenal fan, so your week will be bad enough when Norwich batter you. Don’t want it compounding by a Lordstrum goal
      Lol

  9. FPLShaqiri

    Current team:

    Pope
    TAA, Tomori, Lundstram
    Son, Manè, Maddison, Mount, KDB
    Vardy, Pukki

    Button, Montoya, Connolly, Lascelles 1ft 2.4itb

    Thoughts?

    a) Connolly to Ings and bench Mount.
    b) Hold
    c) ?

    1. Rhodes your boat

      B

  10. Openboxman

    Mount > Pulisic ?

    Nobody in my ML has him and hes in better form.

    1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Mount’s form has never changed...he’s playing really well. What you mean is he hasn’t got many pts of late...but his form is fine.

      The pts will come back.

    2. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      If it’s your only fire to put out then definitely

  11. Patrick.22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Ryan
    TAA / Soy / Lund
    Mane / Mount* / Maddi / KDB
    Tammy* / Vardy / Kane

    1FT 1.5itb

    A) Tammy to Jiminez
    B) Tammy to Jiminez and Mount to Pulisic

    Feel like Tammy is up for eviction even if he is deemed fit. Just feel like he’s a rotation risk and Pulisic is more exciting and enough to cover Chelsea. Almost feels like a cheaper Hazard

    1. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      B) would mean a -4 obvs!

  12. Snapes on a Plane
    • 5 Years

    Jimenez or Ings for the next 5?

    1. Patrick.22

    Can people stop buying son please so his price rises tomorrow instead, want to get him after Tammy news

    1. Andriy Shevchenko is Back
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Praying for the same. Who are you selling for him? I am contemplating Martial to Son for -4. Will be priced out otherwise. Bit of a long shot so waiting as long as possible to make my mind up.

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Sterling for me, too many chances, tough one for you but think I’d do it!

    2. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Refreshingly honest, beats all 'why would anyone consider selling Abraham' posts

  14. Totti
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    who is more important now to get this gameweek ?

    A) son
    B) maddison

    1. Andriy Shevchenko is Back
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I can’t find it...so sorry no link...but...I read an article a couple of weeks ago where Ole was saying Martial was a great player but tricky to handle in training. Looking at how he played last time i’m Minded to think Ole and him have had a problem...

    Also...

    Did anybody notice last weekend that Ole referred to his team as “them” and “they” instead of “We” and “us”.....always a give away of behind the scenes issues...

    1. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Overanalysing maybe

      "Ole Gunnar Solskjær says Anthony Martial has become an “infectious” presence at the training ground and this is driving the forward’s goalscoring form for Manchester United."

      Ole would never say something like that unless he has dropped a player completely.

        He absolutely did....and United played like there was a problem last time, I’ll try and find the interview.

        Do you think I just made it up?

    Aubameyang owner here. What would you really do? Sell immediately or give it the Norwich game? Despite the disappointment he could score well this week and I'm sure I saw he has scored 5 points plus more game weeks than any other player.

    1. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I have owned him all season, I'm looking to sell at first opportunity (unless Emery is sacked) but each week there is another issue to deal with, plan at the moment is to keep for Norwich & Brighton then ditch. If I had a free transfer this week and nothing else to tend to though I'd sell him this week, think Norwich will beat Arsenal (I'm a gooner btw).

        Cheers. Feels wrong to sell this week. I feel so confused with him. I like him but not the team he plays for.

    1) Pulisic or Madi
    2) Surely Mount starts this week?

    1. Nightf0x

      2 but I still sold for Pulisic. Think potential is higher, even on a points per million basis

    3. soup natsi

      I'd say wait for Chelsea presser. If tammy out short term, definitely A - looks great

          I'm in the same boat. Really keen to move Martial on for him but would be for -4 so have to wait on Tammy news

            Not keen on waiting until after Villa (H) this week?

    On WC, going without Salah AND Mane is... madness or sensible?

    Henderson
    TAA, Lund, Aurier, Soy, (Rico)
    KdB, Pulisic, Martial, Maddison, (McGinn)
    Kane, Vardy, Jimmy

    1. Andriy Shevchenko is Back

      Madness. Mane has to come in

    2. Athletic Nasherbo

      Utter madness. Mane is the best fantasy option.

      I'd want to slot one in personally and I would sacrifice Kane for the funds with Martial or Maddison probably the one to make way.

        Cheers. I'd get Ings in this case and keep Salah, but he's been failing me for so long, and his injury worries me, also expect Kane do to well over the course of next 4 but Salah and Ings do seem better chose than Kane and Martial. Or does it? I should have watched more games.

      Salah in

      Mane, Moutinho and Mousset for Martial, Madi and Jimi work?

        1 month, 25 days ago

        It does work, but uh, I made fun of a mate for choosing Moutinho over Traore just before his 16 pointer against City I can't possibly pick him. Interesting choice though?

          Does Jimmy Martial and McGinn to Ings Troure and Salah work?

    Looks like another price rise for Vardy ??

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years

      It does, hoping he can hold just one more day but highly unlikely.

    Pulisic to start this weekend?

    CHO, Tierney to Puli, Williams a no brainer?

    1. soup natsi

      I'd want a sure starter for christmas but for this week only Williams look like a good pick

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Has to be someone for funds wise. Williams or Kelly the options. Will be upgrading Connolly to Mousset so a bench of Mousset, Rico and Williams is decent enough imo. Always option to Downgrade Martial after this week and upgrade Williams or Rico
