Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL defenders with the biggest goal threat

Earlier this week we focused on the new “per 90 minutes” addition to our Members’ Area by checking out the most creative defenders in 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League.

Our series now continues with an assessment of the standout players for goal threat from the back.

        Of course.

        Naturally, I sold him on my WC and got Fernandes back.

        Hey Rag, the autosubs are formatted like a python list. Just thought you'd know.

          haha yes they are indeed python lists, should make them look nicer

          1. BNMC
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Can't you just put the list inside a str()?
              You probably know better than me though.

                I just didn't notice I left them in a list. Literally everything in the game is somehow somewhere in a python list, but I then format it for display. Easy to fix.

          Alli does what he does in real FPL. Blanks when I have him, hauls when I don't.

            i fear its the simulator that likes kanes clinicalness better.
            like with auba and vardy he doesnt need many chances and gets them everytime at home

          80 and a small - 40 places - green arrrow. Have to be happy I guess. Lascelles losing his cleanie on 87 minutes hurt.

          96 without Salah. Up to 38.

          Selling Vardy (obv just got and captained this week) and Perez for a hit this week

          Playing without a Pool Player for 3Weeks now and moved up the ranks like crazy.

          Thx to KDB Perez Vardy Kane Rashford Aurier WanBissaka Chilwell

          Now back to Auba (C)

          with those city and pool fixtures
          trippling up on spurs and leicester and double united was the way to go

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

            Nice score with no Salah.

            1. Dr. Agabuse
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              thx. its much more fun without pool players but their fixtures were just so bad when i wildcarded three weeks ago.
              before i had mane and salah and decided to radically change that.
              Fixtures were outstanding and simulators go after fixtures, esp with the big strikers at home.

              you can bet on two goals for auba kane vardy aguero(4in2) each time when a bottomhalf league team squares up.

          2. Dr. Agabuse
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Until last week i had jimenez and aguero. niw vardy kane boom.

            If there were a stat showing how much virtual fantasy money everyone had moved around, i'd be up there.
            no week taht i dont get a new captain almost.
            sadly in real fantasy i dont have the guts to play like that..
            or it wouldnt be rewarded like that.
            3home fixs in a row also makes it easy and selling while a player is hot is easier when a simulator is recalculating everything.

        11. Gentle_Turks
          • 2 Years

          Four Serie A players have tested positive for covid19 - one at Torino and four at Sampdoria. The EPL would be stupid to try to restart the season.

          1. Berbs
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            In that case, we'd be stupid to restart football before a vaccine is available.

            By that time most if not all clubs would go bust.

            Football will return, as will many other businesses whether people like it or not.

            1. DAZZ
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              The economy will literally crumble to nothing if we don’t start opening up again soon. Im fearful for small businesses, a lot of pubs and restaurants will be forced to close for good, i’m worried what our country will look like in 6 months time. I dont think the Government have a clue what’s going on

            2. Lindelol
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 2 days ago

              We still don't have vaccine against malaria and H.I.V.

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

              If they restart it, play a game or two and then just a couple of players test positive then the whole thing would have to be postponed again. So it's stupid to start it up when they don't HAVE to do it.

              1. Wolves Ay We
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                I suspect players of relegation teams are the most likely to be tested positive for Coronavirus (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) hence to prevent this scenario the EPL should make contingency plans on how they would address which, joking aside could happen, and complete the season.

              2. Poseidon.
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 2 days ago

                We have no idea when the vaccine is coming. ‘A couple’ of players could test positive next season. Maybe the season after that. Do we postpone until 22/23? I’d imagine the sport is pretty much gone by then.

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

                  I agree that that would be pretty grim. But you're just making assumptions about what will happen. The facts are that we are in the worst of the pandemic right NOW, and the current football season does not need to be finished. Void it and get one more distraction out of the way for the government, NHS etc, use the best of the various options we have for naming winners etc, and plan for next season when hopefully the hard work that is being done by scientists on a vaccine will have borne fruit.

                  1. Poseidon.
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    Totally agree that no football should be played right now but still struggling to grasp why this season has to be voided. The only thing that matters really is delaying play again to the point at which it is optimal in terms of human life - does it really matter at this point whether it’s considered this season or next unless there is a vested interest at play?

                      2 months, 2 days ago

                      Yes theoretically the season could continue in July, August, even September, but that would be messy and would likely impact the start of next season. And it would be a huge distraction hanging around for the next several months when the government, NHS, police etc have bigger things to worry about. I miss football too..but gotta be realistic and do the right thing.

                    • 1 Year

                    Also - I’M making assumptions? The fact that we can assume nothing is exactly why I’m telling you that we can just abandon everything!

              I should say that I have no EPL club bias. I'm happy for Pool to be named champions. I support Barcelona.

                Utd/Juve here. Also no bearing on my point regarding this though.

                2 months, 2 days ago

                I know. This has little to do with team allegiances.

                If we wait for a vaccine before playing football, pretty much every club would fold and the game is gone.

                I do agree this season shouldn't be played out though, I think it should be curtailed.

                The government must do everything possible to reduce the risk and spread of a second wave.

                That being said, waiting until a vaccine is too long. We need to find some sensible middle ground.

            Let's all stay at home for the next 6 months until the vaccine is found open our doors to the tumbleweed blowing down the roads.

            There’ll be more loss of life through poverty than disease if we don’t at least attempt to get back to normal. The impact of Coronavirus has to be balanced against the impact on the economy

            1. Lindelol
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 2 days ago

              agreed and in worst case scenario we might not have vaccine against it for next few years to come so that doesn't mean we should just rely on vaccine.

              1. Poseidon.
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Exactly. Completely get that we’d rather no-one had it but it isn’t quite as simple as that. Also as far as I’m aware Italian football hasn’t restarted so struggling to actually even see the relevance beyond the fave that people aren’t safe regardless.

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

                  The relevance is that Italian players tentatively began training this week and BOOM, immediately two teams are possibly ruled out of a start any time soon.

            We won't need live football or society ever again when Ragabolly's vFPL instantaneously generates simulated games in real time in 64k definition shortly.

          How’s my actual FPL team looking ahead of a restart?

          Pope / McCarthy
          TAA / Saiss / Fernandez / Baldock / Tang
          Salah / KDB / Bruno / Martial / Richarlison
          DCL / Jimenez / Ayew

          I will be playing 352 most weeks..

          Thinking of swapping Richarlison to Son and upgrading Tanganga to a 4.7 max, just not sure who? Not sure I want double Sheff defence? Dunk maybe?

            2 months, 2 days ago

            What about Martial to Son, spread the risk? Depending on how Spurs defence goes maybe keep Tanganga, lovely price.

                    Confused as to what difference it makes to my point though

                      What part of Texas?

                      Just interested in why people who support some teams refer to them as 'we'? I have two friends in US who support the Raiders and the Redskins, live nowhere near them and don't refer to them as we. I'm convinced in my own head that it's a generational social media thing. I'm from Mayo in Ireland so Mayo and Ireland are we and Liverpool are Liverpool.

                        San Antonio. I guess just because they are an ingrained part of me and vice versa. I’ve supported them through thick and thin so feels like we are one and the same!

                          Sound. Never been to San Antonio. Been to Austin a couple of times. Great town, 6th Street is great.

                            Come to San Antonio bro! So much in terms of history and things to do! 6th Street awesome too though!

                              Visited a few years back, a very nice town...the Alamo, the Riverwalk, ...Pat OBrians was a favourite.

              Kind of sums it up

              " who is ' we'?"
              " UTD"
              "You're from Manchester ?"
              "Texas"
              😆

            United are lucky to get one player in there.

              Why do you hate us?

                I hate 'you' because I'm from Manchester. But that has nothing to do with the fact that United shouldn't have a single player in the team of the season.

                  Much as I like Liverpool, I don’t think you guys are ready to be using that just yet!

            There shouldn't be any ya twonk. Fernandes only played a handful of games, how can he be in the team of the season.
