Are matches against the ‘big six’ to be feared in FPL?

Everton sit near the bottom of our Season Ticker over the next seven Gameweeks, with the Toffees taking on all but one of the traditional ‘big six’ and Leicester City over the next two months.

Last week we wrote about how owners of Richarlison (£8.1m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m) may be at a ‘form versus fixtures’ crossroads as we approach Gameweek 27, given the attacking returns those two players have been racking up since Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival.

The blobs of red, either on our Season Ticker or on Fantasy Premier League’s own Fixture Difficulty Rating scale, are off-putting to the eye but are Everton’s fixtures really that bad and are the ‘big six’ really to be feared?

We delve into our Members’ Area data to pose those questions in the article below.

We will also include Leicester in this study, given the difficulty rating applied to the Foxes on both FPL and our own site.

    Developments for fpl next season:

    1) Transfers roll on to a maximum of 3, instead of 2.

    2) Double Captain chip to replace Triple Captain (vice also scores double in given gameweek).

      Thoughts?

    2. Greek Freak

      What's the point of a maximum of 2 anyway? Why not just keep rolling indefinitely?

      1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…

        Can see the logic in this but it would favour those who got lucky with their initial GW picks .

        Or similar to Telegraph and you get say 38 transfers for the season up front and when they run out you take hits. not sure if I like it though!

        1. Greek Freak
          • 4 Years

          I think I'd prefer that to the FPL way.

          I remember I was not a ble to do any transfer after the initial 30 run out, but it was a few years back

      3 transfer rolls just rewards people who are lucky. When you need to make transfers you are already at a disadvantage

      1. SADIO SANÉ

        is that not the whole point of the game? picking players that score well..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Yes but why should you get further rewarded with more free transfers after already being rewarded with points? No point widening the gap.

      2. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Why does it reward people who are lucky or is this just your general negativity again ?
        Viewed the other way it rewards people who select their players well.

          You don't even have to score well to save a transfer. I'm ranked well below 500k yet there have been numerous occasions I saved (or even burned) a transfer.

          You literally said the same thing above... When I say "lucky" I mean people come out on the positive side of variance. If you happen to pick the players who do well at the start of the season you are lucky. You are already rewarded by their points and form. Further rewarding you by giving you more free transfers is unnecessary.

            How can you even disagree with me after posting

      I like the sound of 2.

      Also feel the free hits should be changed. Two transfers max isn't that much of an advantage and your hand can often be forced to make a change prematurely, so as to facilitate later moves an avoid a hit.

      3 free transfers would enable more impactfull strategy (mini wildcard) but -- you could argue -- such a change would only suffer from the same drawback as the current setup.

      Not keen on unlimited rolling as it essentially means you can stockpile transfers during steady periods and only widens the gap between the haves and the have nots.

      I like 1). Having an optimal squad for 3 consecutive gameweeks should be rewarded more.

    6. Stejson

      Perfect 11 chip. Plays your best 11 players in a valid formation instead of free hit.
      Price changes, once or twice a week, at specific times that are well publicised. Also, you are certain who moves in price before the change happens.
      Price loss on a player is treated in the same way price increases if you sell them

        No - has a retrospective element about it. I'd be against any chip that allowed that.

      I like the Champions League fantasy.

      I like the option to sub players and change captain on next match day.

    8. Daniel S.
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 1 hour ago

      Lovely suggestions Kaptain Kun I support them both.

      I would also like to have 2pts earnt for penalty won no matter if the goal is scored or the same man is taking it it will be great if your captain is the penalty scorer and he was fouled too.

      1. Daniel S.
        • 10 Years

        One chip Park the Bus when all 6 in defense get double pts

        1. Daniel S.
          • 10 Years
          12 days, 1 hour ago

          All out attack to be altered and all 8 attackers to get double pts.

          Come ooooon FPL do your thing !!!!

          1. Daniel S.
            • 10 Years
            12 days, 1 hour ago

            If you switch captain to vice because of your captain not playing nice gets half pts

            1. Daniel S.

              I hate to point out the obvious flaw...

              but half of double points is... well...

        a chip that would give you an unlimited budget for one GW, and then revert back to your previous squad

      I’d rather everyone got all three chips to use in the 1st half of the season and then all three chips to use in the second half of the season again, or we don’t have any chips at all.

      1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 39 mins ago

        None at all but they won't do that as it's not good for them when marketing the game.

    10. toca
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        I think the use of chips really spice up the game and opens up a lot of strategic thinking. I would love for the game to have handfulof of more chips to use. There are so many things you could come up with....

      • LOLarov
        • 10 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        disagree on VC that is for backup to C, should only get one player who doubles up on points as that is the challenge to get it right!

      • FanDoc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        Like the second one. I think it would increase the value as well as the impact it could have in climbing the rankings.

        A change I'd like to see is to have the highest scoring bench player get subbed in rather than the bench priority system.
        Providing it doesn't create an illegal formation, that would remain the same.

        It should make having bench players that play more valuable and cause us to change how we distribute our funds.

        Thoughts?

        3 transfers seems okay I guess, but don't feel it would really improve things much.

        Double captain seems fine but not really sure it improves the game overall much.

        I'd still prefer to see all chips given twice - before Jan and after.

        So we can use some of them in single gameweeks instead of mostly waiting on double gameweeks. I know they don't HAVE to be used in a double but mostly that's what happens.

          Thanks all, some very interesting ideas. I do like the chips being refreshed in Jan, would bode well with the fact we have the WC refreshed in Jan too.

                          She does it for me but Emma was my favourite. I remember Jim McGrath saying on CH4 Racing once when she was walking down the Ascot walkway in a short skirt and followed by the camera man

          Currently forecasting winds of 62mph for Southampton v Burnley & 63-64mph for Norwich v Liverpool.
          A little stronger than Ciara for Sheffield United v Bournemouth and a lot stronger than for Man City v West Ham.

            I think there's more in play than just wind speeds that determined calling off the Mcy game.
            One key factor I believe is the exposed staircase to the stands.

        I think maybe A.
        Yes DCL has been scoring but in favourable fixtures.
        Tough fixtures coming up.

      GW27: Aguero, KDB & Grealish > Jimenez, Mane(c) & Traore (-4)
      GW28: DCL > Vardy

      Big swing of points coming my way. Hopefully for the better.

      Henderson
      TAA VVD Dunk
      Salah(c) KDB Grealish Traore
      Vardy Ings DCL

      McGovern Lundstram Soyuncu Dendoncker

      1 FT, 3.9 ITB

      Plan has always bee:

      DCL >> Jimenez

      (due to the fixture swing and Vardys getting good from GW28)

      If I use my FT on that, is anything else worth a -4 hit this week??

      And would you start Dunk (shu) or Lundstram (BHA)??

      1. jonnybhoy

            I agree somewhat although City will surely strengthen .
            Big summer for Chelsea re transfer investment - there is potential.
            Man U & Arsenal a long way behind.
            Spurs probably best of thede but again signings needed.

              Not for me. They are where the are due to the failings of other clubs and an excellent manager - rather similar to when Dyche got Burnley into the Europa League. They will find their natural level next session in my opinion ( I live in Sheffield ) unless they get more creativity.

              0itb. Yeah same idea I think. Need to decide whether to keep Kun or Mahrez or drop both. Some ideas include;

              A. Kun+Greenwood >> Jimenez+Ings
              B. Kun+Mahrez >> Jimenez+Mané
              C. Kun+Greenwood+Aurier >> Jimenez+Ings+VVD (-4)
              D. Kun+Greenwood+Mahrez >> Jimenez+Ings+Son (-4)

            Tricky. Not a lot I’d change. DCL > Ings by downgrading Lund or Grealish?

            1. My heart goes Salalalalah
              • 3 Years
              12 days, 50 mins ago

              Exactly my initial thoughts. But DCL just keeps giving. And the best underlying stats of all forwards I think I read the other day. Tough, might burn a ft or just get Lascelles for Lundstram

            How about vardy to Ings and Lund/dunk to Doherty

            I’d still do something passive I think like Lund or dunk out to new/Soton/shu defender and roll your other

          Should I take a hit to improve my defence or roll with this in GW27 and hope Lundy does something or Williams starts for Utd?

          Probably looking to ship Holgate or Williams for Boly/Stephens at some point

          Guaita
          TAA / Webster / Lund
          Salah / Grealish / Mane / Traore

          Button / Williams / Cantwell / Holgate

            I assume this is the longest gameweek in the history of FPL for obvious reasons?

                          I'm with him every day, but I could never answer that question with clarity, unless he was answering that question himself.

            These moves seem sensible after this gameweek? Both for a -4. Which would you go for?

            A) Aguero + Grealish —> DCL/Wood + Mane
            B) Grealish + Lund —> Perez/Barnes + Boly

            Rest of team below:

            Ryan, (Button)
            TAA, Lascelles, Baldock, (Lund, Holgate)
            KDB, Salah, Son, Grealish, (Dend)
            Aguero, Ings, Jiminez

              I’d actually save, a hit feels excessive

                A lot of blank players for 28 though?

                  so wait til next week to take the hit

                      If this is for gw 28 then I like Aguero and Lund to VVD and DCL/Wood

              Depends on if he blanks vs Wolves.

                And if he doesn’t?

                Can’t imagine people will buy before MCI

                  If he blanks again vs Wolves, for sure.

                    Man City could potentially play a weakened side against Leicester with only 3 days between games.

                    Vardy haul on the cards I reckon.

                    1. Tinkermania
                        11 days, 23 hours ago

                        Or even weakened side against West Ham. Or even weakened side in both.

                        1. Salarrivederci
                          • 3 Years
                          11 days, 23 hours ago

                          Possibly somewhat weakened in both yes, but I think most in here forget, that those players will need some gametime and some positive results on the field to be able to win against City.

                          You can't go 24 days from losing 0-2 against Spurs, having a winter break, and then playing Real Madrid.
                          Many of the offensive players starting against Real Madrid in 2 weeks will play around 150 minutes combined vs. West Ham and Leicester if you ask me (90 against WH and 60 against Leicester). Most of the defending players will probably play all 180.

                          1. Fantasy Gold
                            • 5 Years
                            11 days, 23 hours ago

                            I’d say it’s more likely it’ll be full strength against West Ham then a slightly weakened team against Leicester.

                            Just my guess but who really knows with the bald fraud.

                          2. Salarrivederci

                            But yes. Ofc there will be rotation and rests for some, but Pep will not start 18-20 different players against West Ham and City.

                            1. Tinkermania
                                11 days, 23 hours ago

                                5 changes to next game will mean 16 different starters. Easily.

                            2. Tinkermania
                                11 days, 23 hours ago

                                I am going with 30minutes against Leicester for KDB, Kun and Mahrez on average and 60+ against Leicester.

                                1. Salarrivederci
                                  • 3 Years
                                  11 days, 23 hours ago

                                  Ye but you don't want your star injury-prone Belgian player to be 'just' lukewarm against Madrid.

                                  1. Tinkermania
                                      11 days, 23 hours ago

                                      Yes, that's why i am expecting 30mins and 60mins in that order

                            3. toca
                                11 days, 23 hours ago

                                Its quite possible, but if he blanks vs Wolves on Friday he will definitely drop to 9.7, the trend is already there and with another blank...

                          Only 12 people in the top 10k own Salah, Mane and Firmino. Now that's proper upside chasiness swordsmanship.

                              There is a major fault on here. If -1 votes are posted the site should reveal the identity of the poster who has done that. Just allows completely anonymous spineless down voting with no accountability Utterly stupid concept.

                                It’s called double standards.

                                Something the FFS Mods live by.

                                Come on mods and site owners answer this. It really is entering very dangerous territory and very juvenile on behalf of yourselves.
                                Up votes fine but down votes require substance and accountability. If this is the way the site is going you can all eff off.

                                If I got a -1, I think i'd have a fantasy orgasm.

                                Commonly mods downvote by accident - I frequently accidentally click it whilst scrolling quickly on mobile. It's also not possible for us to undo them!

                                    Such a cowardly thing to do.

                                      Lol . So I try to up vote this and it defaults to a -1 . What a load of shite.

                                  Looking on our system and it genuinely says that nobody has downvoted it, so really confused what's happened.

                                  Don't think there's someone out to get you, don't worry 😉

                                    Clearly showed a -1 for quite a long period.

                                  So are you saying that mods can down vote a comment with no explanation ?

                                    They have the ability to, yes, but are told not to use it (and don't as far as I'm aware).

                                    It's there to prevent people manipulating the voting system or something like that.

                                      OK. I suggest that it's removed for the sake of clarity.

                                          Maybe sooner rather than later ? It could easily lose newly paid up members which can't be good for the endless striving for profit at all costs.

                                            I've mentioned it already, but nowt more I can do.

                                            I know what you're trying to get at with the pointed comment, but I promise you there's literally nothing I value above the community. I guess you're not worried about what I think though!

                                              That's your implication and not the case. I admit that I do have issues with some aspects of the community as such but surely as a mod you must have some influence ? Otherwise it totally denegrates that role.

                                                I do, which is why everything I'm involved with I try to improve the community with. Doesn't always work, but I give it my best shot.

                                                  Good man. There always is the ultimate dilemma though. Site owners quite rightly want profit ( and contrary to others I would never criticise Mark for this and indeed I urged him to sell ) but in order to retain those profits people such as yourself who give up a lot of time should be rewarded accordingly. I don't think that this is the case and as a business model this is where ultimately it will fall down. Just my opinion but I wouldn't give up shite loads of personal time for f all to fill someone else's boots.

                                        Nah it's something in the T&Cs or something another. Doubt it would do much anyways

                                I thought downvotes have been removed? Or have I been banned from down voting..

                                  You have , mods haven't.

                                    I don't see the benefit of anyone let alone mods having the option to downvote. It only incites a negative reaction from the poster. If a post breaches the rules, it can be deleted. No need for posts to become a popularity contest, it feels very Facebook-like.

                                      I totally agree Berbs unless the down vote has accountability by being directly associated to the down voter. I hope that past disagreements are buried as I respect your comments.

                                      Think this is being made into a much bigger thing than it is.

                                      There are some scenarios where it would be useful for mods to use it - for example if someone goes on an upvote spree to basically spam. They can be "reset" by being downvoted to counter balance it.

                                      But ultimately Mr Rotation is right - if it's ever used it's almost always an accident. Usually there's a scramble to get another mod to upvote it because it wasn't done on purpose.

                                      It's been available for years and hasn't caused any issues up until this point really, so it's not doing any harm.

                                        Up vote spamming results in or at least used to result into a sin bin of up voting for X amount of time - I think that's more appropriate as it eradicates accidental down votes from mods. We live in a social frenzy world where numbers are everything, so I'm sure you understand why posters get rubbed up the wrong way for having a -1 next to a fairly normal comment.

                                          I can understand it, but it's almost always rectified pretty quickly. It's not like this is a constant issue, right?

                                        So why have it if as you say "if it's ever used it's almost always an accident" .

                                            So how many precisely percentage wise go on "an up vote spree" ? And actually who gives a toss anyway ?

                                              As you can imagine, I wouldn't have specific numbers.

                                              But I'd guess very low, about the same as when you see a -1, not very often at all.

                                                  No need to go round in circles on this - you can see my comment above.

                                                  Feels like a mountain out of a molehill this one.

                                                  That's not going round in circles it's a logical question in response to a logical reply , the implication from which is that it isn't necessary.

                                            I wrote a well received community article this week. I upvoted everyone who took the time to read it and post a comment. I upvoted them because I was grateful. Mods shouldn't have the power to take that away.

                                            Change the algorithm that pushes upvoted posts up the page. Don't penalise people who are showing gratitude to people who take the time to comment on your FPL thoughts.

                              Thoughts on these guys

                              A) Holgate to Gomez - Free
                              B) Holgate + Snodgrass to VVD + Hayden -4pts

                              A was my original plan but B could be better points value

                              Cheers
