What Warren Buffett can teach us about Fantasy Premier League

In his latest Pro Pundits column, former Fantasy Premier League champion Simon March asks what FPL managers can learn from the ‘Oracle of Omaha’.


Warren Buffett is considered by many to be the world’s greatest living investor with a net worth of over $89.9bn. Unfortunately for Warren, he’s never played Fantasy Premier League and so he’s never really understood the true meaning of success nor has he experienced the thrill of winning tickets to two Premier League matches of his choice.

However, I do think there’s a lot that we Fantasy managers can learn from the ‘Oracle of Omaha’ and so this article will look at how elements of Buffett’s investment strategy may be applied to FPL.

Value Investing

Warren Buffett largely adopts a ‘value investing’ strategy which essentially means he aims to identify undervalued stock, according to certain criteria, invest in them and then wait for the market to correct itself, thus yielding a profit.

Because the mechanics of the FPL player price system reflect the stock market with investment in both types of asset increasing their price, an obvious application of a value investing strategy would be to identify and buy underpriced players and wait for other Fantasy managers to catch on and buy them too, thus raising their price and allowing you to profit through increased team value. 

For example, you could easily argue that the likes of Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), Sheffield United’s John Lundstram (£5.1m) and Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) were all underpriced at the beginning of the season and all for varying reasons. These include a return from a long injury for De Bruyne, a misallocated defender classification for Lundstram and the expectation that Abraham would be a supporting rather than starting striker. Their performances have attracted investment thus going some way to correcting their underpricing and, therefore, those managers that identified this investing opportunity early on would have yielded a substantial profit.

Of course, while a high team value can help, it is points that ultimately count in FPL and, while the two often follow each other, value investing of this type won’t necessarily win you your mini-leagues.

However, you can also look at value investing in relation to points by seeking contextual value opportunities. For example, Brighton’s Mathew Ryan (£4.8m), Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Everton’s Lucas Digne (£5.7m) are all probably priced correctly (some might even be overpriced) with respect to the overall season but you could also argue that they are all ‘underpriced’ within the context of their next five to six fixtures given that these are largely favourable for all three and include a Double Gameweek for Salah. 

Alternatively, two players may be accurately priced individually but offer a strong rotation, allowing them to be played only in favourable fixtures. Budget players with only good fixtures may offer comparable value to set-and-forget premium assets with more varied fixture difficulty.

There will be many other opportunities for contextual value and so, since much of FPL is about making the most of a finite budget, accurately timing and executing a value-led strategy of this type can create a big advantage.

Long-Term Investment

In some respects, the opposite of ‘value investing’ is ‘momentum investing’ which involves acquiring assets currently increasing in price in the hope that they will continue to grow in the (typically near) future. In FPL, ‘momentum’ would be the equivalent of a ‘bandwagon’; players who suddenly become popular and attract explosive levels of investment.

Buffett famously eschews momentum investing, preferring instead to carefully pick his stocks based on solid, fundamental business criteria and then hold them for as long as is profitable. He is quoted as saying: “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for ten years.” This means that Buffett will miss out on the fast profits that come with certain investment bubbles but he will also not be left high and dry when they burst. Instead, Buffett’s success comes from achieving relatively modest but consistent returns, compounded over decades of investment.

Obviously, FPL and financial investments occur over very different timeframes and it’s probably not the best strategy to just stick with your Gameweek 1 team for the entire season (then again…) but, again, there are lessons to be learnt here.

Firstly, it is the importance of understanding and identifying what are the ‘fundamentals’ in good FPL players. As with investing, everyone will have their own interpretation of this but, for me, the fundamentals I look at include; how good a team the player plays in, the significance of their role in that team, how nailed on they are and whether or not they are on set pieces. I tend to add variables such as fixture difficulty and some statistical information on top of those, but these are the basics that I look at first. Current players who have, I think, extraordinarily strong fundamentals in this respect include De Bruyne, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) and I always look for these types of players at the beginning of the season and when wildcarding.

As per Buffett, I also try and pick only players that I would be happy to have in my team for the whole season if I were to be hit by that proverbial bus. This isn’t, I stress, with any expectation that I will actually keep this player for the whole season, it just means that, if I have bigger fires to fight in my squad I will, at worst, be left holding on to a fundamentally sound player. I find this helps me avoid hits and, while it inevitably means that I miss out on some bandwagon points, I, like Buffett, get to miss out on the bandwagon busts as well.

Diversification

Diversification is a classic business school concept which suggests that investing in too few companies or industries is dangerous given the potential of a collapse or industry-wide downturn and, therefore, it is better to diversify investments and ‘spread the risk.’ This concept is applied all the time in FPL when we consider doubling or tripling up on players from a certain team.

Given the prevalence of this concept, it is maybe surprising therefore to hear that Buffett rejects it almost entirely stating that: “Diversification is protection against ignorance. It makes little sense if you know what you’re doing.” In FPL, it must be said, diversification can also offer protection against rotation, fixture difficult and dips in team form, however, following Buffett in rejecting it may also have its own benefits.

For example, I don’t think it’s entirely a coincidence that I won FPL in a year where my real-world team won the Premier League as it meant that there was a selection of really strong FPL assets available in a squad that I, as a long-term fan, understood really well. While I didn’t have any inside information as such, I felt I knew the players, the manager, the system, which types of teams they tended to do well or struggle against and so on. I tripled-up on players from this team almost the entire season and it seemed to pay off.

These circumstances, of course, were pretty lucky for me and I’ve no doubt they helped me to make better FPL decisions that season. In fact, looking at some of the other former winners’ winning seasons, it seems that many of their real-world teams also performed well.

So perhaps it’s true that, if you know your chosen subject well enough, diversification for the sake of diversification is unnecessary, perhaps even detrimental. It’s undoubtedly easier to know your stuff if you’re focusing on fewer clubs and, if you are a particular aficionado of a team or several teams, you might gain more of an advantage from concentrating your efforts and player selection on what you know best than you would from ‘spreading the risk’ across lots of sides.  

Summary

In summary, I believe that value-investing, a long-term mindset and focus rather than diversification, all principles that have helped Warren Buffett becomes the fourth-richest man in the world, may all also have benefits if applied to FPL.

Considering this, it’s a shame that Buffett has never tried his hand at FPL preferring, apparently, to play the card game bridge which, I understand he’s also pretty good at. Then again, since I think he’d be pretty good at FPL too, maybe Bridge’s gain isn’t entirely our loss…

      Any plans for triple Pool?

      Rashy for DCL and maybe upgrade Doherty to TAA and have money left over

      1. 2EyedTurk
        • 4 Years

      Wouldn't risk Gomez personally but rest looks decent.

      What made you decide Rich over Martial btw?

      1. Niho992
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        because he has Rash already ? and they play vs Liverpool away in GW 23

      2. 2EyedTurk

        Got Rashford, and like the look of Everton fixtures.

  2. JJeyy

    Maddison or Mahrez? Safety or stats

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Mahrez already started last 4 games in the league. I think it' s time for the bench

    2. Chasing Waves
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Mahrez a troll for me but on his day can be big differential. Good luck on you’re decision.

      Worried about maddison and already have two leicester players. Leicester could blank gw28 too. Brought in richarlison instead of maddison tonight to avoid drop.

    What are people doing week 24 for triple pool?

    I have TAA and Mane and trying to decide whether to go Salah or Robbo?

    I need to ship out Kane (I know, should have shipped last night to avoid price drop but was at the King Power and forgot) and also trying to get Fab in for Pope.

    Traore looking like he is going up tonight so that would allow

    A - Traore/Pope/Kane > Salah/Fab/Greenwood

    this I would need to do before Pope drops and Salah rises as leaves me nothing in the bank so probably need to do this week for a 4pt hit - not ideal shipping Traoré before home match to Newcastle

    or...

    B - Pope/Kane/Reid > Fab/Jimi/Robbo

    and would do just Kane/Pope changes this week and therefore no hit....

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Salah and TAA imo and probably going for Firmino

    2. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      KDB to Salah probably, to join Mane and TAA

    3. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      B looks better long term imo but a risk with the Salah TCs

      1. Belli2007
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        That is my fear. I will TC Mane if no Salah but Salah surely the better choice for TC as on pens.....

        I could go KDB to Salah which would cost me .3m if I wanted to bring him back in....

        1. Niho992
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          2 away games. Mane is better choice.

        2. ryacoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          The way I'm looking at it, from GW24, City have 4 tough away games and a (likely) blank GW28 over a 6 GW period.

    4. OneMan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Have Mane, Taking in Salah and prob TAA aswell.

      1. Belli2007
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Thanks. Will get Salah in one way or another....

  7. Noregretz

    Vardy Kane
    Button, Kelly, Dedonk, Greenwood

    For the next few games Kane to >

      why would you WC this team ? Great team.

      Just sell Martial/Rash next GW

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Got 1ft not used now, so going Rashford and Tomori to Ings and Robbo

    2. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      No you should not

    3. zon

      No way

    4. FPLGeezer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      No save FT and plan for Mane in.

    5. JamieNumber4
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Not far off the template. Not sure there’s much point WC’ing - looks good

    6. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      No. Nothing much wrong with it.

      1. Belli2007
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        No, this is a good team

    7. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Ok cheers all, just thinking of Mane, Richarlison, Ings, DCL, new keeper etc in.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Oh and Tomori and Hanley need to go.

        1. Belli2007
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          yes, but would just move those out over coming weeks rather than waste WC

  9. Cilly Bonnolly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Pope to Ryan or Foster?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I like Foster, but those Brighton fixtures are great

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Exactly. Can't decide. I'm also thinking Fabianski but honestly it's probably more the allure of the double.

        1. Belli2007
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Fab does get good save points....

        2. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Foster is who i want really

          1. Belli2007
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Pearson doing a good job, go with your gut....while the allure of the double will attract....cant see Hammers keeping a CS away at Leicester or at home to Liverpool...

            1. Belli2007
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              but a lot of saves potentially against those....

          2. Cilly Bonnolly
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I think I'll go Foster and it means I can get Dunk in for Rico and not be doubling up on Brighton defence.

            1. Dynamic Duos
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Like this

      2. The Sociologist
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Could go Foster and aim to being in Dunk too down the line?

    2. FPLGeezer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Undecided too if Pope drops tonight means I can't get Fab without freeing up funds.

      Do like Fab for the double

    Any news on Heaton injury? might bring in his replacement (Nyland).

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years

      Heaton out for rest of season

    2. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Heaton out for season but I read they might be trying to sign a GK

    3. Monkey Hanger

      They are looking to buy someone.

      1. Belli2007

        Nyland played well last night, made some good saves

    4. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Nyland was brilliant in last 2 cup games. Hopefully we play him and the Pepe Reina rumour is nonsense

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        What age is Reina these days?

          A year older than this time last year

  11. noahzark22
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Leno
    Sidibé, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Lundstram
    De Bruyne, Traoré, Maddison
    Vardy, Ings, Aubameyang

    Button, Cantwell, Kelly, Zaha

    Take a hit for anything here? 1.1 ITB

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I would start Zaha or bench him 1st at least

      1. Belli2007
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        This. Aubameyang a doubt due to illness and Maddison took a bang to the head and Palace will get chances against Arsenal

  12. Somar

    Dropped idea of punt on Aguero for 2 weeks. Will get Ings and Mané for Rashford and Richarlison before week 24- but is team OK to go this week or perhaps play Cantwell over Grealish?

    Ryan
    TAA Söyüncü Lundstram
    Salah KDB (c) Richarlison Grealish
    Vardy Rashford DCL

    Button Cantwell Rico Kelly

    Ryan

    TAA Lund Aurier
    KDB Mane Alli Grealish
    Vardy (c) Rashford Mousset

    Button Rico Kelly Hayden
    2FT and 3.3IB

    Aurier----> 1. Sidibe or 2 Holgate (save to invest later) or 3.Soy
    Mousset ---> A. Ings or B. DCL

    Bring in Ings for Rashord and Salah for Alli before DGW

    Could do with Traore going up before the deadline so I have exact cash to get Salah after the deadline. Get him in lads!

    How is xA per 90 skewed by someone playing a few minutes off the bench. Someone is telling me Benteke has xA per 90 of 0.25 which is better than Grealish 0.22 and this seems like nonsense to me

      Lol. Gotta love Benteke for once my friend 🙂

      People still cares about xA ?

      That's right, so ignore it. They just take the assist threat stat per minute played x 90. Check his mate Wickham for xG90 😉

      This is less about the flaws of xA, xG than about the sample size that is time played. Benteke played < 500 mins. Grealish played 1700. Comparing them is in itself absurd.

      Mahrez get benched in the at least 1 of the next 3.
