Eliteserien Runde 10 – In my defence

One of the biggest ways Eliteserien (ESF) differs from Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is in defence. Clean sheets are far more synonymous with FPL than ESF which leads most of us to choose our defenders based on their attacking potential (AP) rather than clean sheet potential (CSP). Whether you’re playing ESF, FPL or any other Fantasy Football game, maximising your points return should always be at the forefront of your mind, it’s the methodology that usually differs.

After 9 gameweeks we’ve seen 35 clean sheets. That’s more than 0.5 per game, or 4.1 per gameweek. In the Premier League however, we see the numbers increase to 0.6 clean sheets per game, or 5.5 per gameweek. In regards to Fantasy Football CSP, your odds of benefitting from a clean sheet are far less favourable in ESF than FPL.

This is in part due to there only being 8 games/week rather than 10, but it’s also due to the fact there’s just less clean sheets kept in general.

And this is where the biggest challenge lies – in my opinion – in building a solid ESF team. Who do you go for in defence? While CSP is somewhat diminished in ESF if you’re used to playing FPL, it doesn’t mean that clean sheets never happen, or that you should completely ignore any team/defender likely to benefit from them. It should definitely be a part of your decision making, but more importantly you should be looking at AP. (The same logic applies in FPL as you want to maximise your points potential, but it’s probably more important to favour AP over CSP when playing ESF than FPL).

Who occupies a place inside the Modric-Bohinen void? Who is well and truly in a league of their own? To find out we’ll be focusing on the following 10 defenders:

1. Andreas Hanche-Olsen (47pts)

2. Ivan Nasberg (42pts)

3. Vegar Eggen Hedenstad (39pts)

4. Tore Reginiussen (37pts)

5. Gustav Valsvik (37pts)

6. Vetle Winger Dragsnes (37pts)

7. John Kitolano (36pts)

8. Mats Solheim (35pts)

9. Christian Borchgrevink (35pts)

10. Markus Nakkim (34pts)

And the following categories:

1. Goals/Clean Sheets

2. Assists (Total)

3. Shots/Shots on Target

4. Passes/Accurate Passes/Passing Accuracy %

5. Accurate Opposition Half Passes/Final Third

6. Key Passes and Big Chances Created

7. Accurate Crosses

8. Interceptions/Tackles

Regardless of position, the bottom line in Fantasy Football – whether you’re playing in Sweden, Germany or Romania – is to score points. And it just so happens in ESF, just like in FPL, the majority of points will come from goal involvement. That is why I am looking at the same categories as when we analysed our top-scoring midfielders. Knowing who is most involved with attacking play, most likely to score and playing the important passes is going to be critical in our decision-making process if we are to maximise our potential points return. I have also included accurate crosses as we will more than likely be most interested in attacking fullbacks/wingbacks (plus OOP defenders playing in midfield) as well as clean sheets – for obvious reasons – and interceptions/tackles for BFP reasons.

1) Goals/Clean Sheets

Only 17 defenders have scored in the first nine gameweeks. From our list of 10 top-scoring defenders, only four are yet to score. Hanche-Olsen and Dragsnes both have two goals whereas Valsvik, Kitolano, Nasberg and Nakkim all have one. Hedenstad, Reginiussen, Borchgrevink and Solheim are on none. This isn’t really a metric I’d say is fool-proof when looking to assess the inherent worth/value of a Fantasy defender, but it gives an insight into the different kinds of impact these players can have for their teams.

For example, Hanche-Olsen and Dragsnes have both scored twice in nine games. Hanche-Olsen is the highest-scoring defender in the game, but Dragsnes is 6th, showing that goal-scoring ability is not the most important aspect of a Fantasy defender’s game.

Goal scoring potential (GSP) is certainly something to consider when choosing any player, while clean sheet potential (CSP) is one of the most imperative aspects of a defender’s appeal. As previously stated, clean sheets are rarer in ESF and we shouldn’t look at defenders in Norwegian football the same way we do in the Premier League. That being said, if there are clean sheets up for grabs, we’d be foolish to ignore them.

18 defenders have 3 clean sheets or more, with seven of those being our guys who all make the top ten. Kitolano and Hanche-Olsen both have three, but Borchgrevink, Hedenstad, Reginiussen and Valsvik all have four. Similarly to Hedenstad being the third highest-scoring defender in the game despite not having scored, Christian Borchgrevink is the 9th highest scoring defender in the game even though he has four clean sheets (joint top). At this point, it’s worth highlighting the fact that only 12 points separate Hanche-Olsen (1st) and Borchgrevink (9th). Nasberg has more clean sheets than anyone else (5) due to being substituted while Valerenga led Viking 2-0, even though the game ended 2-1.

Even though they seem hard to come by, clean sheets will certainly be more frequently earned by defenders than goals. For Fantasy purposes CSP definitely outranks GSP, but perhaps a combination of both is the best way forward. I would rather go for a defender who may not get as many clean sheets as others but is at least somewhat likely to score goals as I am not relying solely on one route to earn points. Football is hard to predict at the best of times therefore I want my eggs in as many baskets as possible.

Goals and clean sheets aren’t the only way to points though, as the bonus points system in ESF tends to reward ‘hard work’ and ‘getting stuck in’ far more than FPL. Also, contributing to build-up play and indirect goal involvement/prevention is another area where defenders can be rewarded through BFP.

Joachim Thomassen, Mikkel Desler and Birk Risa all have three clean sheets. Over the course of this article, don’t be surprised to see their names crop up in other areas of analysis. These guys (although yet to score) are all heavily involved in attacking play, as well as being contributing factors to their defences keeping clean sheets.

(Goals/Clean Sheets: Hanche-Olsen 2:3, Nasberg 1:5, Hedenstad 0:4, Reginiussen 0:4, Valsvik 1:4, Dragsnes 2:2, Kitolano 1:3, Solheim 0:3, Borchgrevink 0:4, Nakkim 1:2).

2) Assists

Having a defender in your team who is capable of grabbing the odd assist here and there can be the difference between a green and a red arrow most weeks. In FPL we think of Trent Alexander-Arnold as being pretty much essential as his attacking potential (AP) is so high due to the number of assists he constantly churns out week after week. He’s one of the most important players in one of the best defences in the world, but he actually has more assists than clean sheets (15-14). (He’s got as many Fantasy points as Jamie Vardy).

In Norway, we have Alexander Stolas. Does Alexander mean ‘happy to help’ in Fantasy Football language or something? In 2018 he scored four goals and got eight assists, while last season he ended with three goals and five assists. His minutes this season have been sporadic thus far due to injury, but he’s one of those players most managers in-the-know will have on their radar as his AP is quite frankly bonkers when fully fit.

For real-world assists, four of our ten make the cut, with Hedenstad, Kitolano and Solheim all on two and Borchgrevink on one. When Fantasy assists are also taken into consideration, we afford ourselves a more well-rounded understanding of where our points are going to come from. As an assist can be a blocked shot, winning a penalty which is then converted or something as simple as a deflected cross, it’s really important we don’t only consider those defenders who are only effective in real-world football – we need both halves of this specific equation to get the right answer.

Solheim and Nakkim are the only players from our ten who benefit from being given a Fantasy assist, taking their respective totals up to 3 and 1. Desler sneaks into the top ten for total assists (1 real, 1 Fantasy), with Christofer Aasbak and Martin Bjornbak also going from 1 to 2. Fredrik Bjorkan is the only defender to have 3 real-world assists, making an early claim for best attacking full-back in the league.

Only 11 defenders have two or more assists at this stage, making them more a luxury occurrence rather than something to be expected. We shouldn’t forget that half of our top ten don’t have an assist at all. At this point it’s becoming clearer and clearer to me that our defenders are versatile players, offering different routes to scoring points. It seems pretty foolish to go after one or two defenders solely because they’ve scored more or set up more goals than their peers. It’s not like we’re comparing Kasper Junker with Benjamin Kallman for goals scored – we’re dealing with much smaller margins and that shouldn’t be forgotten.

Vidar Ari Jonsson is a great example of how a defender rewarded solely for his attacking exploits is not necessarily a great Fantasy option. He’s got two assists (only two defenders have more) yet he only has 12pts from 660 minutes. He’s missed just one game (ironically a 1-0 win) and both his assists came in the same match. He has no clean sheets, no goals and no BFP. But judging him with only assists in mind, he seems a good choice. Fantasy football is full of traps and AP for defenders certainly creates obstacles for us to navigate our way around.

(Assists: Hanche-Olsen 0, Nasberg 0, Hedenstad 2, Reginiussen 0, Valsvik 0, Dragsnes 0, Kitolano 2, Solheim 3, Borchgrevink 1, Nakkim 1).

3) Shots/Shots on Target

Last season Mjondalen were the go-to team for defenders likely to grab a goal/assist and when it comes to ‘having a go’ they’re streets ahead of their rivals once again. Sondre Solholm Johansen has had 16 shots (1.78 a game) but only 4 (25%) have been on target. Nakkim is second for total shots (10) and top for shots on target (6). He’s scored just once. His involvement in attacking play is certainly encouraging, his conversion rate somewhat far less appealing. The only other player to make the top ten for shots and shots on target is Hanche-Olsen (5/4). If you were confused as to why 42.3% of managers own this guy – don’t be. He’s the highest scoring defender in the game for a reason. For multiple reasons, in fact. I was toying with the idea of shipping him out of my team for a cheaper alternative – then I started to write this article and have since thought otherwise. He’s ticking all the right boxes.

Sarpsborg’s Thomassen is in our sights yet again with 5 shots (3 on target) as are Odd duo Ruud and Risa (2 shots on target from 7 and 4 respectively). Bjorkan sits just behind Ruud on 6 shots (2 on target). The majority of our list fail to impress in this area. When we look at shots per 90 mins, Nakkim stands out with 1.11. That’s almost twice as good as Hanche-Olsen (0.56) and far better than teammate Dragsnes (0.44). Borchgrevink has a respectable 0.45 but everyone else is quite far behind.

Ari Jonsson has had the same amount of shots as Hanche-Olsen (5) but has found it much harder to hit the target (only one of his shots being on target) highlighting once again, we want quality over quantity. Wasting chances is not something we’re interested in – we want clear cut attempts on goal, say a header from a set-piece, rather than blazing over from 25 yards. Let’s not forget this is a guide which we can hopefully use to point us in the direction of points, rather than being completely exhaustive.

There’s not too much correlation here which makes me value this part of our analysis far less than other areas. I don’t think we should worry too much about how many shots our defenders are taking as it’s never going to be a particularly high number anyway, and when they are shooting, it’s probably going to be from set-pieces or picking up a loose ball etc… As the season moves on we may come to a different conclusion, but for now, this isn’t something I’m bothering myself with – the points lie elsewhere.

(Shots/Shots on Target: Hanche-Olsen 5/4, Nasberg 1/1, Hedenstad 1/1, Reginiussen 1/0, Valsvik 2/1, Dragsnes 4/3, Kitolano 1/1, Solheim 1/0, Borchgrevink 4/1, Nakkim 10/6).

4) Passes/Accurate Passes/Passing Accuracy %

This is where correlation takes a nosedive. Our top-scorers are not the passing kind. It’s one of those attributes you would sooner associate with ball-playing centre-backs rather than attacking full-backs deployed in a very direct system. The main take-away from this is that Nasberg is quite heavily involved in Valerenga’s passing game. The centre-back is responsible for 13.5% of Valerenga’s total passes (542) and only Bodo/Glimt’s Marius Lode (729 – 99.3 passes/game) and Odd’s mythically-named Odin Bjortuft (588) have more. Nasberg also sits in 3rd place for accurate passes played (474 – 87.5%) behind the same two players.

Bodo/Glimt trio Bjorkan (477/427), Marius Hoibraten (478/429) and Alfons Sampsted (495/428) all make the top ten for both categories while Molde’s Bjornbak (480/418) also features. Last week when we delved into the numbers behind Zinckernagel, Hauge, Saltnes and Berg, it became quite clear this team is all about passing and judging by this analysis, that methodology is not unique to their midfield.

Espen Ruud catches the eye (479/375) along with Desler (470/417) and Risa (412/325). Only two of our top ten have a passing accuracy of less than 72%, and only one has played less than 200 passes. When looking at passes played and Fantasy points, there’s not much to suggest that one particularly influences the other. For all his passes, Lode has only won 3 BFP (all from one game) and Hoibraten and Sampsted both have none. It’s always good if our defenders are knocking the ball around, but we’re not interested in centre-backs who play sideward passes every time they get the ball.

(Passes/Accurate Passes/Passing Accuracy %: Hanche-Olsen 411/342/83.2%, Nasberg 542/474/87.5%, Hedenstad 542/288/79.8%, Reginiussen 415/346/83.4%, Valsvik 387/293/75.7%, Dragsnes 216/144/66.7%, Kitolano 264/214/81.1%, Solheim 313/217/69.3%, Borchgrevink 439/369/84.1%, Nakkim 387/282/72.9%).

5) Accurate Opposition Half Passes/Final Third Passes

With 173 accurate passes in the opposition half (47.9%) and 98 accurate in the final third (27.1%), Rosenborg’s Hedenstad is by far the most efficient, attacking defender in our top ten. Almost half of his total passes have been in the opposition half, with over a quarter in the final third – a feat none of our other defenders come close to replicating. Being on set-piece duty certainly helps, but it also shows how his mentality affects his style of play.

Comparing our top ten to the actual top ten for this category yields very little correlation – none of our featured defenders are in the top ten performers. Hedenstad just behind Adekugbe, granted, but overall there is no real link between this statistic and Fantasy points. Ruud and Desler are 4th and 5th respectively, with Lode and Bjorkan the top two for both categories. This Glimt team are enforcing their style of play on the rest of the league whether everyone is OK with it or not. And it’s starting at the back. For me at least, I’m happy to disregard any Bodo/Glimt player in any analysis going forward because they are quite simply toying with whoever they play.

Thomassen (103), Ruud (98), Hedenstad (98) and Desler (95) are all heavily active for their teams in the final third, amassing a total of 7 assists between them. (Thomassen also has 166 accurate passes in opposition half). It’s certainly not a ground-breaking return, but it’s an indication of their intent and gives us good reason to think more attack returns will inevitably follow. Bjorkan has the most assists of any defender in the game and he currently is second for passes in opposition half (251) and first for passes in the final third (129). Over the course of the season, it would seem reasonable to expect players such as Bjorkan, Ruud, Desler, Hedenstad and Thomassen to develop into the players who end up with the most assists.

Hedenstad aside, no-one really stands out here other than Christian Borchgrevink. He’s played 146 passes in the opposition half and 77 in the final third. Both he and Hedenstad are the only players that have made any notable contribution for their teams in this aspect of the game and for me that’s quite definitive. Hedenstad is in my team but due to his injury concern he will be shipped. And right now Borchgrevink is who I am contemplating bringing in. In a lot of these categories we’ve looked at, his name is either somewhere in the top ten or a few places behind. Well-rounded, consistent players seem to be the type to bring home the bacon. Defenders especially.

Risa (156/81) and Anton Kralj (129/76) get special mentions along with Bjortuft (171/50) and Sormo (111/71). Kralj would only be seen as a valid Fantasy asset if he was in a better team. No matter how many runs or passes or attacking plays he might initiate, the players around him simply aren’t good enough to seize those chances. Come season end I think it will be a case of ‘what could have been’ and a probably move to a bigger club. He certainly looks to be streets ahead of his teammates and too good a player for a newly-promoted club.

(Accurate Opposition Half Passes/Final Third Passes: Hanche-Olsen 125/40, Nasberg 135/39, Hedenstad 173/98, Reginiussen 137/43, Valsvik 103/29, Dragsnes 84/49, Kitolano 100/55, Solheim 108/49, Borchgrevink 146/77, Nakkim 104/63).

6) Key Passes/Big Chances Created

Only Hedenstad (10) and Borchgrevink (9) make the actual top ten for Key Passes, with Solheim only just missing out with 5. Thomassen has the most in the division with 15, while Desler and Sormo are joint second with 12. It shouldn’t be too surprising to find out that Bjorkan (9) and Ruud (9) are also amongst the best in the league. Kralj is something of a surprise with 7 (two more than Risa), while Alexander Stolas is on 6 (although all of those were quite ridiculously made in the same game).

For big chances created Solheim (3) and Borchgrevink (2) are our most impressive performers. This isn’t really an area associated with defenders so there’s no real gain from looking too much further into this. Solholm Johansen is the only other defender with 3 big chances created and there’s only 5 defenders in the league who have 2. Ari Jonsson (9/2) is another promising Fantasy asset let down by pretty much zero CSP and poor AP due to being in a poor side (Sandefjord) who don’t want to score many goals.

For the majority of our defenders, this isn’t an area they shine in. Poor correlation overall, but for Hedenstad and Borchgrevink potentially an outlet they can utilise to provide more chances for their team and in turn for themselves to score Fantasy points.

(Key Passes/Big Chances Created: Hanche-Olsen 2/1, Nasberg 1/0, Hedenstad 10/0, Reginiussen 0/0, Valsvik 0/0, Dragsnes 1/0, Kitolano 4/1, Solheim 5/3, Borchgrevink 9/2, Nakkim 1/1).

7) Accurate Crosses

Our top ten have produced 28 accurate crosses, 20 of those coming from Hedenstad and Borchgrevink. Solheim has chipped in with 6 and both Dragsnes and Kitolano each have 1. Everyone else has blanked. We can’t expect our defenders to all be the marauding full-back-cum-winger, but if given the choice between a defender who is constantly looking to play the ball into the box and one that simply isn’t interested, I know which one I’d choose.

Ruud (16) has produced the most crosses (he’s played just 644 minutes so far this season) with Aasbak (11) in second place. Ari Jonsson is doing his best to keep up with the big boys, whipping in 10 crosses himself with Desler (9) and Thomassen (7) trailing behind. Stolas – in just 138 minutes – has somehow put the ball in the box 6 times, as has the quite-exciting Anton Kralj. Bjorkan, Sormo and Risa all narrowly miss out on the top ten with 5 apiece.

(Accurate Crosses: Hanche-Olsen 0, Nasberg 0, Hedenstad 10, Reginiussen 0, Valsvik 0, Dragsnes 1, Kitolano 1, Solheim 6, Borchgrevink 10, Nakkim 0).

8) Interceptions and Tackles

Even though this isn’t Allsvenskan and we can’t expect our defenders to be rewarded for, well, playing defensively, it’s something we should take the time to look into as bonus points are an often-overlooked aspect of the game – they can provide well-needed boosts and turn a good gameweek into a much nicer one.

Only 4 of our players are in double figures for interceptions and just 5 for tackles. Borchgrevink, in particular, impresses here, as he has 13 interceptions and 15 tackles (7th overall in both tables) contributing a hefty 1.7 interceptions and tackles per games. For an attacking player who isn’t spending a lot of his time duelling with troublesome forwards, I’d say that’s quite respectable.

Nasberg (15) is beaten only by Pedersen (16) and Bjortuft (17) for interceptions but has a paltry 4 tackles – fewer than anyone else we’re interested in. Risa (15) and Bjorkan (12) show up in the top ten for interceptions, and Bjorkan (19) is third overall for tackles. Desler and Ruud both have 15 tackles along with Sandefjord pair Ari Jonsson and Kralj. While these parts of the game won’t directly result in points being scored for our defenders, it may go some way towards earning them a few bonus points which should never turn even the proudest of noses upwards.

(Interceptions/Tackles: Hanche-Olsen 10/5, Nasberg 15/4, Hedenstad 6/9, Reginiussen 14/9, Valsvik 7/11, Dragsnes 4/13, Kitolano 7/10, Solheim 6/7, Borchgrevink 13/15, Nakkim 7/18).

CONCLUSION

Hanche-Olsen is part of a solid Stabaek team which should end the season with a decent amount of clean sheets, while he himself offers a good amount of attacking threat in the way of goals. Nasberg has nabbed himself a goal from his only shot and has benefitted from being substituted early to have the most clean sheets in the league. Other than that he doesn’t seem to offer much else despite being a decent passer.

Hedenstad is one of the most effective passing defenders in the league, has a couple of assists and plays for a team that likes to keep clean sheets. Reginiussen is a solid centre-back but his age, combined with lack of goal-threat diminishes his appeal. Valsvik is by all intent and purposes a younger version of Reginiussen and thusly shouldn’t be expected to offer much in ways of attacking returns.

Dragsnes has a couple of goals already and is part of a Mjondalen defence few teams expect to break down with ease. He’s tidy shooter but his passing game really lets him down. Kitolano is one of the few defenders we’ve looked at whose talent stretches across multiple metrics. He has a goal, a couple of assists, is an accomplished passer and looks to get the ball forward wherever possible. He’s also playing for the second-best team in the league which should most definitely boost his appeal.

Solheim may not have scored but he’s got three assists and the same amount of clean sheets – he’s potentially quite the bargain if he maintains this kind of form. Borchgrevink, like Kitolano has performed well over the majority of the categories we’ve looked at to analyse our defenders. He’s the stand out player along with Hedenstad, and offers exceptional value for money at just 5.1m. Nakkim isn’t a flashy player and even though he’s in our top ten, I doubt he will still be there come the end of the season.

I went ahead and made my move for this week, transferring Hedenstad out for Borchgrevink. Valerenga are in 3rd place and look good for the money. They’re a good passing outfit who have all the potential to indeed finish in 3rd place after 30 games, despite struggling in front of goal. Having missed out on just ten minutes playing time, he’s absolutely nailed and has been an integral part of his team’s quest to win the ‘Rest of the League’ trophy.

If Espen Ruud can maintain his fitness (he’s 36) he could be an explosive asset. He might have played almost two whole games fewer than Risa, but he’s had pretty much the same amount of the ball as him. He’s averaging 85 touches a game – a truly astounding number. Desler and Thomassen performed well in most of our categories along with Bjorkan. The main issue I have with Bjorkan is that he occupies a Bodo/Glimt slot. When Hauge leaves he potentially takes his place, but you could easily make the argument to go with one of Berg or Satlnes instead.

Sormo should be on everyone’s radar also, as he’s 4.7m and in a defensively sound team like Kristiansund and looks a threat going forward. Ari Jonsson and Kralj are definitely two of Sandefjord’s most important players and their numbers are promising, but they lack quality around them, meaning attacking returns will more than likely remain few and far between no matter how well they play. (He does already have two assists, though). Even though there are question marks around Stolas’ fitness, he is already looking good statistically speaking. 6 key passes in a single game has a few eyebrows raised – but it’ll take far more regular, consistent performances before most of us will be convinced to hand over 7.3m for him.

My defence consists of Andreas Hopmark, Bent Sormo, Christian Borchgrevink, Andreas Hanche-Olsen and Jesper Daland. I am more than happy with my core defenders being Sormo/Borchgrevink/Hanche-Olsen as from what I can gather that provides me with a good mix of defensive stability and attacking potential. Hopmark can potentially be downgraded (Heggheim and Betten Hansen in particular seem to offer brilliant value) but while he may not offer as much going forward as his colleague Aasbak (4.9m), they’re part of the same team and a defensive double-up on Kristiansund might be a differential approach in itself.

I’ve certainly discovered a few things about quite a lot of players since diving into the statistics and it’s helped me feel more confident picking a team in which I can believe. Approaching the game in a more analytical manner has given me an assuredness I most certainly lack in FPL. Last week I finished on 87pts (28th overall) and in RD7 I scored 100 (42nd overall). Sandwiched between those two scores is an unsightly 25pts (31,479th overall). I’ve not undergone any major reconstructive surgery – it’s the very nature of Fantasy Football. You can experience such success you are placed in the upper echelons of high-society, amongst the elite, then before you know it you’re face down in the dirt, left to wonder what just happened.

    If anyone is disappointed with their lack of returns, hear me out. I own Deumeland (no backup), Betten Hansen (brought in this GW for red card), Eikrem (benched) & James (benched again, captained last week) along with Sormo, Nakkim & Pellegrino (all blanks). My 300 OR has dropped to well below 1k withi 2 GWs.

      Marathon not a sprint, to use a cliché.

      Not about how well you do a third of the way into the season, it's about keeping it up until the end. It's difficult. I seem to yo-yo around and it is frustrating.

      And just now, Koomson grabs a goal. And he sits and waves at me from my bench.

      I should be having a brilliant week but a stupid, stupid decision has cost me god knows how many points.

      Got to take the bad with the good.

        Sormo now injured as well - team looks like a Christmas tree.

        Ouch! That is bad luck. I'm surprised no Eikrem or James as Valerenga have been picking up a few clean sheets recently. Maybe they are being saved for the later part of the game.

          Ruined my GW, that.

          Took my Myhra clean sheet and Koomson is on my bench. What a silly, silly goal to concede. They just stood there and let him do what he wanted.

          The defending really is atrocious in this league.

                I brought in Kastrati.

                I thought KBK were going to beat Sandefjord with relative ease and saw Kastrati playing.

                Don't think it's that bad a decision at all. Brann are playing Stromsgodset who keep the ball and Koomson only really scores at home.

                If it was against a worse team and I didn't bring in someone else I would've played him.

                It wasn't just a random benching, just thought Kastrati would do better than him this week, that's all.

                Was a poor transfer in the end, evidently.

                    This league is much more form than fixture, versus premier league

                      Yeah, I'm seeing that more and more.

                      Still, it's really easy saying whether decisions were good or bad after the fact.

                      Brann played better than I thought they would, but that goal was completely out of nothing.

                      Koomson definitely had a good game - I just had a feeling Stromsgodset would win with ease. In the end they managed to win 3-1, so it wasn't too disastrous logic.

                      But yes, it seems that if you have a player in form, you play them against whoever they're up against.

                      Certainly beginning to see that!

                          I didn't mean to be captain hindsight. The KBK part of your logic was sensible - just that I've watched a couple of Brann's recent games and Koomson wasn't a consideration for benching - much in line with the flipside of the logic in your appraisals of him here. I honestly wasn't expecting SIF to win, but goes to show the rationale wasn't necessarily flawed and sometimes those moves still work out sometimes not.

                            Yeah, I'm a big believer in thinking it doesn't matter if the team loses, the good player can still score points.

                            I think that certainly applies with Koomson. In this case I genuinely thought Stromsgodset would pass them off the pitch and suffocate them.

                            Brann played far better than I thought they would. It's so frustrating though, especially as the other part of my logic was that Kristiansund would win, easily, and as Kastrati was back he would be a focal figure up front. That move hasn't gone to plan and it's ended up costing me points yet again.

                            I think I overplay the game sometimes. I need to just take a step back and not jump into these silly transfers. Trying to be too clever really. Ah well. It does make it a bit more fun when you jump in two footed but it is a bit rash nonetheless.

              Should have believed in my man Gilbert!

              For the second week in a row I've made a silly, silly substitute.

              When will I learn?

              That one sub has cost me probably 9 if not 10 points. Utterly ridiculous.

              And it's nice to see Kristiansund score their goals after both their players I own have been taken off the pitch. Lovely stuff..

              Molde lineup this evening looks good for James and Hestad starting against Sandefjord on Saturday. Eikrem on the bench. Hmmm... Should be OK, but likely to get subbed around the 60-minute mark again.

              Although arguably it's the home game against IK Start next Wednesday that you want your players starting, no pun intended.

              2 points from 6 players including Molde as it stands, so that'll be 4 points from 6 once Eikrem & James get 1 pointers.

              Not seen it mentioned here but Molde reported to have accepted a bid of around £2.5m for Aursnes from Toulouse.

              I think that's a really good fee for a player who is replaceable and probably doesn't have a huge ceiling beyond this level. Molde are still stacked in midfield but perhaps bad timing with half of them having to fill in in defence (also no Ellingsen in squad today). Think it would definitely hinder their chances of catching Glimt.

              Did somebody here play the Scottish Premiership Fantasy game last season?

              https://fantasy.spfl.co.uk/#/welcome

              If so, could you please confirm if I understand it right: There are unlimited transfers each GW? And within each GW I can transfer players in and out? For example if Rangers are playing on Saturday I can get 4 players from them and if Celtic is playing on Sunday I can sell them and get 4 Celtic players in over night?

              This is the paragraph from the rules:

              "SELECTION OF PLAYERS

              Once registered, players of the game can select their full fantasy football teams. It is possible to modify your team between two fixture rounds. As long as a player's match has not started, you can add or remove him from your team if this change is within your budget and the authorised player limit per club. Once a fixture round has started, you can no longer add him until the day following the relevant fixture round."

              The new season starts Saturday and I'm a little bit confused 🙂

              Is anybody else considering RU for the next round?

              These injuries and price rises are coming in thick and fast.
              The only way I get Linde + James or Ohi is by doing a -8. I'd more than likely bring a Start midfielder in (probably Schulze) to soften the blow, but it would feel like being really blinded by a DGW that may not yield the results we want it to.

              I usually approach DGWs the wrong way - what is everyone else thinking?

                Got two FT and already got James, Hussain and Daland.

                Will get in one other Molde and not highest bothered about another IK player

                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  2FT so no RU for me. Not sure which three Molde players to bring in though now Eikrem is flagged..

                  How many injuries do you have? A -8 for a DGW may be chasing points, but If it helps your team going forward it may worthwhile. Not an easy decision.

                  1. ReindeerHotdog
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    It's more a case of I only have Hussain, I'd like Linde but will need to make another transfer to bring him in.

                    That means it'll be at least -4 to get him in. I'm happy with that as I think going forward I want him and think he'll get at least one clean sheet in the DGW. So I'm happy to think those points will be paid back pretty much right away.

                    Second transfer would be Borven out. I could bring Ohi in, but that leaves me 0.6m short and if I remove my other forward I can't afford Fridjonsson as I'd only have 7.2m. As you can see, there's absolutely nobody you'd consider in that price range.

                    Then that leaves Maigaard out (8.2m) so I'd have 7.6m for a midfielder. Nordlii is an option as is Sandberg but I can't have Satlnes as I already have 3 Bodo and I have Koomson and Hussain.

                    It does feel like point chasing a bit, and even though I think Ohi and James will share minutes, it does feel more logical to bring in a Molde forward as if I'm going to make a hit, I might as well try and maximise my potential attacking returns.

                    If I avoid a Molde forward altogether I could bring in any forward I want and leave it as a -4pt hit. But then I only have two Molde players (Hussain and Linde) for that DGW. I think I might do that and just hide behind the sofa. James' potential attacking returns are terrifying - I'm not sure a RU is warranted because of what I think of one player's ceiling, though.

                    1. ffs casual
                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        That's a tough choice to make. The forwards make things difficult as you say nothing below Fridjonsson seems worthwhile, but the good forwards are expensive. I still have Østensen in my team as I haven't managed to bring anyone else in. I was going to bring in Lauritsen, but he was the only value option.

                        It would make sense to bring in a Molde forward for the DGW if you plan to keep him. I think whoever plays up front will haul as they are playing two of the weakest teams. I have James and was going to double captain him, but after Ohi delivering a goal and two assists, my confidence in James getting the next two games has diminished. It is starting to feel a little like Pep roulette, but if he plays, he could score big.

                        Hussain and Linde are very good picks. I would expect one and possibly two cleam sheets so I don't think you would drop. Hussain only has 15% ownership, Ohi 3% although James has 27%.

                        Best of luck with whatever you choose to do.

                          Cheers bud, thanks for the response.

                          I've gone with:

                          Klaesson - Linde
                          Borven - Ohi
                          Maigaard - Sandberg

                          I'm not happy about getting Maigaard but NOBODY for 7.2m or less (forward) is worth bringing in.
                          Sandberg has at least started to play a bit better. Best of a bad bunch. I was tempted to get Nordlii but I can take it or leave it. Long term 5th mid is probably Bytyqi if he keeps up his form.

                          Ohi will be good for a while and easily replaceable if needed.
                          I think I make those -8 points back and some. If I don't then I'd say that's somewhat unlucky.

                    Yep but it'll be for Glimt as much as Molde, I only have Zinckernagel from either team. Wouldn't rush after Start players.

                      Have Ohi and James and really not sure about 3rd. A start mid would be a reasonable option except it probably requires another soon after to get rid. No way I use RU - too much uncertainty about starts and fitness.

                              Thanks for the link. I agree, on target so at least an assist.

                              Makes the DGW a little easier hearing he is on the bench.

                            He was always getting at least an assist, he shot for the far corner, it looked on target, defender rushed in and kicked it back across the keeper. Pellegrino goal the right decision (think I'd be saying that even if I didn't captain him)

                          The ultimate fantasy fun is to eagerly anticipate a player getting subbed on in order for you to avoid getting a player with minus points off the bench.

                                  Yeah and two-captain chip feels wrong when I'm increasingly tempted to leave it at hoping for returns for just Eikrem/James. Big upside potential but equally big downside.

                                  4 point swing in my favour due to Betten Hansen first on the bench.

                              Hussain getting all these points is so disgusting. He's a holding mid, how on earth is he Molde's top scorer? It's like Fernandinho, Fabinho or Matic being top scorer for their respective teams. Such a casual pick

                                  That's why he is in my team. I had no idea he was a holding mid. Thinking of having him as captain this week.

                                        Lol, I know. I will double captain this week and have James and Hussain. Depending on who I bring in as the third Molde player, it will be two of those three.

                                      Yup. Look at his previous seasons history, he has already bettered those numbers in 10 starts. Ridiculous. Guess that's what confidence does to you

                                        To be fair 4 g 3 a 12 bonus in 1000 minutes is not far off 6 g 3 a 4 bonus in 800 minutes. He has been lucky, but he has the same poaching role on corners that Ruud had a couple of years ago.

                                        Hussain has always been great going forward.

                                    Main reason he's in my team is because he's playing basically every game and gets forward, seems to be able to magic all his shots into the goal and he's affordable.

                                    I'm actually baffled at how little playing time Brynhildsen has been given. I had him at the start of the season - he was on my radar during pre-season. Simple fact of the matter is Molde have so much depth it's very hard to pinpoint who the right pick is.

                                    Hussain is getting the minutes, he gets forward and luck does seem to be on his side. He's owned by 15% of players, too. So he's quite a good differential indeed.

                                    I suppose the fact the EIkrem's minutes have been reduced (something I thought would happen this season) has certainly helped.

                                  Been my own worst enemy this week.

                                  Poor transfer in the end, resulting in missing out on Koomson points.

                                  Ummed and aahed about Borchgrevink over Daland but went with Daland in the end.

                                  Hussain sneaking in to the points and I didn't even consider him as a Captain this week.

                                  Not a bad points return with 4 to go, but definitely should've been better.

                                  Captain Ohi for the DGW. Linde and Hussain my two other Molde assets. No Start.

                                  I think bittersweet is the best word to describe FF.

                                    Are you saying that you have Daland but won’t start him?

                                      I got confused because I was talking about which players I'd brought in and was like "Not bringing in any extra Start players" but was also talking Hussian who I already own.

                                      So yes, I have Daland and yes he'll be playing in the DGW.

                                  Benching Hussain not my best of decisions 🙂

                                  I’m very confused....was all set to get James in ahead of double gameweek. But now thinking should it be Ohi?

                                  Which one is the preferred striker. Which one is the better player? I mean James has like 4 goals in 3 games but then gets dropped or rotated for glimt?

                                  If it’s rotation then surely he starts the next one but no he is on the bench again?

                                  Anyone got any logic to this Molde forward situation?

                                    James should start at weekend, but don’t expect two starts. Same be said for Ohi, they will rotate

                                      As in Ohi bench weekend and start midweek. Just guessing here

                                        Hopefully James has been rested so he starts the next two games. I am being optimistic!

                                    There's no logic to Ohi/James. I'd say James is the better player but Ohi easily matches him when he's on top form. Some talk that James has been struggling with a niggle recently... so maybe he'll have his minutes managed the next few weeks?

                                    The good thing is that their next game is the first of the GW so the teams will be out 15 mins before deadline. If you're available at that point then just get whichever is starting.

                                    Molde's depth is ridiculous. 7 of the 9 players on their bench today would be starting for every other team in the league. 3 of their injured players would also start for most other teams. They also have CL qualifiers in the pipeline so expect rotation no matter who you pick.

                                    Going with Ohi for the DGW sheerly due to budgetary constraints.

                                    I can afford him without completely destroying my team.

                                    I've posted before about Ohi's and James' minutes last season - Ohi basically started more but James was more efficient.

                                    I can easily replace Ohi going forward (which I will), but would like one of the two for the DGW because you know, things happen. Who knows what will be the situation during that time. More than likely one for each game. But they both have high ceilings.

                                    Like anything, logic and stats go so far. Everyone saying what is and isn't the right call is a bit subjective at times. Look at the information and try to be as rational as possible - at times you just have to decide which side of the fence you want to land on.

                                  Bought Linde in yesterday for Mbaye. Now all tripled up on Molde with Hussian & James. Ready to DGW rumble! Only Daland from Start.

                                    Linde, Eikrem & James for me. Hopefully enough money invested to be able to bounce back from what, so far, has been a 10 point round for me haha. Zinckernagel (K), Hauge, Junker & Edvardsen to play today so hopefully that game sees goals.

                                  What's the feeling about Fridjonssen ? with all this double gameweek fever on Molde players who maybe rotated should we rather be looking at the man in form as a DGW differential ?

                                  I'm tempted to bring him in for Bovren to give me a massive war chest going forward, what do those in the know think about that ?

                                    I'm a huge fan of exploiting this focus on Molde assets for the DGW. I have made 2 decisions so far which I believe could make a massive difference to my OR one way or another, but this definitely feels like the ideal week to gamble whilst heads are down & focused on pre-planned moves. I'm a fan of any educated punt this week.

                                    Fridge's fixtures look fantastic & certainly has more goal threat (at least based on the eye test & actual returns) than anyone in that RBK team. I say do it.

                                    Moldes fixtures are plum, Fridjonssen band wagon was good if you got on this turn, fancy Molde to score well over next couple.

                                    Thanks for the responses i think i'm getting Fridge in, i'm ranked 44 at present and have got there by avoiding the big hitters at Molde, i'll have just Linde, Hussain & Daaland for the double but if Fridge scores big, and he must be feeling confident, then he might match the Molde boys anyway.

                                    If Wolf, James or Ohi were guaranteed 2 games i might think differently but no one can say for sure that they are.

                                      Got a hattrick but 270 mins of blank before that. And Sarpsborg last 3 home games have been clean sheets.
                                      Versus Borven though - if his/RBK form keeps flatlining then yeah maybe

                                        Good point maybe the more boring move is just one transfer, no hit for Linde and just do Borven to Ohi......need to think on this some more.......and if Borven bags a brace tonight it gets very confusing !

                                      Castro suspended for next game. That's a big dent in his appeal for the next DGW in my opinion.

                                      I'd be waiting till he's back personally.
