Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL defenders with the best assist potential

As mentioned in a recent introductory article, we’ve added a new “per 90 minutes” filter to the Members Area.

This can help shine a light on those players who have performed well when handed the chance but have perhaps had their seasons curtailed by factors such as injury or rotation.

Our latest series of articles for Members aims to pinpoint those players whose numbers per 90 minutes compare very favourably against the overall leaders per position, according to the Opta statistics.

This first piece assesses the most creative defenders in 2019/20.

      it's a simulation of a fantasy game, in real life KDB may be leaving the prem. Maybe you should think about deleting your account to protect your mental health

        Just because I'm a high profile member of the FFS community, there's no need to have a pop at me.

        Nice to have a good gameweek for a change.

          Great even though a virtual score!

    Ragbolly, are you planning to incorporate double gameweeks? If not then I can start thinking about using chips instead of saving them. For example, I could have TC KDB tonight.

    1. Ragabolly

      There will be no DGWs..

    98 points! Up to 137 OR!
    If only I could have shown this form in Fpl 🙂

      I think in FPL terms that's around the equivalent of being 400k

      1. Longlatini
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Less dead teams in vfpl surely?!

          Aye very true. Let's meet in the middle and call it around 200k then. 😀

    3 episodes into Tiger King - God there are some weirdoes out there...
    Not sure how you can binge watch it though, more than 50 minutes per day and you risk being left brain dead.

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Any good you reckon?

      I haven't seen it because it looks crap to me, but everyone seems to have watched it. Maybe I'm missing a trick.

      1. Rhinos
        • 6 Years

        you are it's great and definitely helps explain why Trump is president

          I've got it on my watchlist so I guess I'll give it a watch at some point but it won't take precedence over other stuff on my watch list.

      2. el polako
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Started watching becasue all the hype about it.

        Personnally at the end of episode I don't feel like "I must watch another one", its ok as a guilty pleasure intellectually not demanding entertainment but nothing more than that for me.

        1. Longlatini
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          It gets a little better but your initial reaction stands you in good stead

      3. Pumpy Pro

        Yes watch it. Before Snowpierecer starts on the 17th 😉

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years

      The thing is, in hindsight it doesn’t really start getting *properly* mad until about the fourth episode I think - its around then that it just goes off the deep end in a big, big way from memory

      Here Kitty Kitty is some tune though

  6. Gentle_Turks
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    93. Perez, Traore, Kane, Jota, KDB(c).

    1. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Nice

    2. Gentle_Turks
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Who would have thought playing Lascelles over Mane was the right call though. (no I didn't do it).

  7. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is TAA dispensable now Liverpool's fixtures have turned?

    He has double the attacking involvement of any other defender but nearly £8m is a huge amount to pay for a defender when there are viable playing options for nearly half the price. Plus clean sheets seem to be quite rare in VFPL and even if Liverpool do get them they can be covered by Gomez for £2.5m less.

    1. Gentle_Turks
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Haven't owned TAA at all.

    2. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      TAA doesn’t seem to be worth it even when he has good fixtures. If it hadn’t been for him being subbed off before losing a cs, he’d only have 1 more point than VVD, who costs over 1m less than him.

      I’m also considering ditching salah. Kane and Auba have much better fixtures and have been doing well on vfpl and are in great form

    3. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A lot of people thought that in real FPL before Liverpool played Leicester at Christmas.....

      1. panda07
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Having said that, their fixtures are getting bad

    4. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I have him for attacking returns and as good a chance a Cs as most teams. Might swap him if it means getting a proper upgrade elsewhere but for me VPL is less predictable than FPL. In a great way!

  8. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Actual fpl*

    4.3 best defender option?

    C.Taylor? ( Have Pope though)

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Ward or Lascelles

    2. The Mighty One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Holgate or Taylor.

  9. Bad Kompany
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    For fpl, would you be concerned with Barnes, Martial, or Taylor being rested?

    Barnes was often subbed early. Martial often struggles with fitness. Burnley has often changed their fullbacks.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Would only be concerned if you have a terrible bench.

  10. waldo666

    A half decent vFPL score after a couple of shockers.

    With 1 FT I guess it's Mane to Salah?

  11. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    No price changes.

  12. BNMC
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Replace Jota with Ings or Tammy?
    I know Wolves have good fixtures, but I currently have 3 of their players and that was mainly for the Brighton game just past. Traore and Saiss should be enough to cover them.

    1. BNMC
      3 months, 7 days ago

      ^^ vFPL, not real

  13. Tambling5
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Spurs and Arsenal fans must prefer vFPL to real football. Instead of being 12 and 13 points behind Leicester respectively, and 7 and 8 points behind Chelsea, there they are - lording it in the Champions League spots! Mind you, my selections are rubbish at FPL - having punted on Mahrez and Jesus two games ago, they've barely had a kick. Thanks for the fun, Ragabolly!

      Ragabolly the hero of the FPL battlers 🙂

    Does anyone think if EPL starts - FPL will be like " so we didnt pause the game now GW38 is over- FPL will continue next season "that would be heartbreaking for me

    1. Tinkermania
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Very likely scenario. Costly for me as I am in pole position in a cash league that pays the top 3.

      1. Halmari Tea
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Same for me - however if they do they would loose alot of players next season and miss such a big opportunity for Ad revenue as so many people would watch and play FPL

        1. Gentle_Turks
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I don’t agree they would lose players.

          1. Halmari Tea
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            considering hundreds of thousands of people till date have spent 30 min - 3/4 hours hours every week and if the League continues and FPL doesnt it definitely will defer a big chunk from playing next season

      2. Devo-McDuff
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Ditto, top of two cash ML with healthy leads. On for about 600 notes. Plus current OR of about 500 wiped from the history books. Ruudy hell.

        In the scheme of things though, there's much worse things going on so it doesn't concern me too much.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah I think that is definitely emerging as one of two distinct possibilities unfortunately

      FPL state in this article that for everyone GW38 will be a zero-pointer: https://www.premierleague.com/news/1646851 - so my interpretation is that Mega-GW38 is ruled out here (unless they go back on their word)

      Mega-GW39 is a possibility of course, but by definition that means they do have the ability to add extra gameweek/s, so why stop at one extra gameweek...

      So basically the possibilities look like being:
      1. Extra Gameweeks added (if games actually go ahead in the real world)
      2. FPL Season finishes with the closure of GW38 (regardless of whether or not games go ahead in the real world)

      i.e. - Any form of "Mega" GW looks extremely unlikely based on what FPL communicated above

      1. Halmari Tea
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Would you happen to know what are the chances of extra game weeks being added IF epl does go ahead - i think it should definitely be more than FPl finishing the season as they are still allowing transfers and tinkering to happen - why waste peoples time if you arent going to add extra weeks

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          No idea how to even begin attaching remotely accurate probabilities to outcomes 1 & 2

          But *if* the guidance FPL gave us in the article is correct there is a confirmed 0% chance of a Mega-GW38
