Football Index: Can form and fixtures make new-look Everton a good bet?


Sponsored by Football Index


Into week two of my adventures in the land of Football Index (FI) and I’m learning some lessons already.

Just as a reminder, FI is, in essence, a stockmarket where people use real money to bet on footballers, with the value of these shares then going up or down based on market forces.

Players can also win money on these shares through a series of dividends, which are individual pay-outs based on match day performances, positive coverage in the media and consistent excellence across each month of action.

And the shares I’ve bought in the last week or so have certainly been on a few… journeys recently.

My pick for last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is a great case in point. The Arsenal man enjoyed a decent Gameweek 1 at Fulham, scoring his first goal of the season in a 3-0 win.

That was particularly pleasing for his massive Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership – close to 50% now – as he was the captaincy choice of many, so brought in double points.

Over on FI, his performance score of 127 – based on a wide range of metrics, including goals scored, chances missed etc – was well above his average of the past few months, but not good enough to win extra cash from a match day dividend when the likes of Mohamed Salah are hitting hat-tricks and recording a performance score of 358.

Not that dividends and Aubameyang haven’t been a success for me so far. Ongoing contract talks and his solid performance at Craven Cottage have meant he’s been in the news consistently, thus winning me media dividend pay-outs.

I mentioned last week that the Arsenal man was going to be a longer-term bet, and that’s just as well based on his yo-yoing share price.

I bought into him at £2.22 a share. That peaked at £2.53 the day before the season started, and at the time of writing, he’s trading at £2.27. One to hold, especially with the dividend opportunities that await in the Europa League.
To add to a positive week, Aubameyang has just signed his new three-year contract, so was able to win media dividends through this breaking news.

As for my other two bets, Callum Wilson’s share price is (currently) plenty higher than when I bought in and he’s also won me the most in dividends, while Leeds man Rodrigo’s key moment in the 4-3 madness at Anfield was to give away the penalty that won Liverpool the match.

So well done Rodrigo, you mugged me off there. But he’s another one I’ve bet on for the long term, so I’m maintaining a Zen-like calm. For now.

Overall my portfolio is up, so Gameweek 1 has been a qualified success.

This Week I Am Mostly Buying Into… Everton.

One game does not a season make, but the world and their life partner were left very impressed by the Toffees’ away win at Spurs.

James Rodriguez’s debut was a belter and, at the time of writing, he leads the way for Gameweek 1 chances created (five), although it was Lucas Digne who ended up with the assist for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s winner.

I’m tempted by all of Everton’s attackers, and new man Abdoulaye Doucoure shouldn’t be ignored either – he created four chances against Tottenham, although he had no attempts on goal, whereas James managed three.

The jury is, therefore, out on exactly which Everton player I’ll bet on, but it will definitely be one of them, especially as they’ll be entertaining West Brom next; a team that allowed a Gameweek-high four big chances at the weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have a great schedule from now through to the middle of December, with their two trickiest matches – a Merseyside derby and Manchester United – both taking place at Goodison Park.

The blessed union of form and fixtures is a beautiful thing in FPL. It’s time to see if the same applies to FI.

    Best set and forget 4.0 keeper?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Depends on your 4.5

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Why is that? I am not bothered about back up and such tbh

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          There is an argument for Martinez and Steer to guarantee yourself a GK if Martinez gets injured but this is complicated by Heaton eventually returning and Nyland still being about.

    2. Do I Not Like Orange

      Any one from a team you're unlikely to want 3 players from. Don't think any will play, but you don't want one jamming up a valuable slot from a decent team.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        So Button?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Think WBA is a good shout

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Much of a muchness. None of them will start barring injuries to the first choice keeper they're backing up.

      So, by set snd forget do you mean picking and leaving on your bench every week knowing that they won't play?

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yes although

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yes*

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            In that case I'd take the Peacock

  2. thehodge
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Probably not but is there any site where it would display detailed past FPL season history?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I asked this sometimes ago and the answer was no. Wondering it remains the same?

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      As in your own? It is on your GW history page?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        But not per GW history - it's per season, isn't it?

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          There was a website that allowed you to download your GW history at the end of the season, will try and remember it's name but if you haven't downloaded now I imagine its gone

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Ok yeah cheers

            1. ElliotJHP
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Think it was A New Planet

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          yeah by season bot by GW - need to screenshot that at end of each campaign

  3. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    How likely am I gonna want a third Villa player beyond Martinez and Grealish this season? Deciding whether or not to have Steer as my 4.0 who may be displaced once Heaton is fit

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Watkins plus they will sign more midfielders - looks like a solid team

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Bit risky if Martinez doesn't start first game also

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Willing to take the risk on Martinez. The more I think about it there is a possibility Watkins and Grealish become options down the line.

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Watkins maybe?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah this is the one - can't see Villa every being solid enough for the defence double up

    4. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Watkins, Rashica, Traore, McGinn, Konsa all good options. However, I am certain I personally won't need any of them bar Watkins.

    5. stat sifter 888888
        2 months, 19 days ago

        You are really thinking in depth here. You could have anyone as a back-up keeper but they'll never play.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          On WC and won't have an opportunity to rectify the 4.0 but that doesn't really matter as I have played my BB already.

      • ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        There could be a time when a Grealish/Watkins double up is appealing

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          True that - I may even start with Grealish at this rate

      • ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Probably not, but never say never.

      • Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        It is possible. Watkins, Bertrand Traore too.

      • pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Possible

        There’s Watkins of course and McGinn was the better midfield pick early last season before injury.

        But while I quite fancy them to do well the double up in attack seems unlikely.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          True but wanting Watkins is probably a more likely scenario than Martinez getting injured and Steer still being the number 2 at that point.

          Martinez and Peacock-Farrell or Button it is.

          Cheers all

    6. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Willian, Greenwood or Mahrez?

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Mahrez

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Like this

      2. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Greenwood for now. Willian might be the better long term option if United signs a RW but fixtures favour Greenwood in the short term.

        I don't think Mahrez is a good option, he was clearly out of favour end of last season. He didn't start any of the last 5 games (PL and CL) if I remember correctly.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Is Greenwood going to start this week?

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            VDB might start

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Bit too risky at this point then

      3. Zim0

      6. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thoughts on this team to carry through to GW3 with 2 FH's?

        McCarthy
        TAA Justin Taylor
        Salah Auba Son ASM Bissouma
        Ings Werner

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Good if Werner is fit

          1. Jellyfish
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            thanks mate, yes I will assess Werner. Martial is an easy swap if the team news isn't favourable

          2. stxrty
              2 months, 19 days ago

              It was a dead leg and he finished the game fine. He starts v Pool.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Solid

            RMT hates the Taylor pick though. And Burnley were poor away early on last time - only returns in soft home games. Question which Burnley starts this season

            1. Jellyfish
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Its a risk but Taylor did well for me last season. If Vinagre is looking like he will drop then I may be forced in to a transfer

              1. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Oh play him over Vin 😀

                Have him too and hoping we’ll see good Burnley. They have been a bit up and down the last 2 seasons - not so many of their type of fixtures early. Got him because I was worried about Justin longevity 🙁

          Thiago's arrival will presumably mean Wij will be on his way? Liverpool will be stronger I would have thought with Thiago in the team.

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Maybe but feel he will stay

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I thought it was in spite of Wijnaldum staying?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Doesn't Koeman want him?

          3. Firmino
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I think Gini will stay. Thiago is Lovren's "replacement" and Fabinho will play centre back If needed.

        3. Jet5605
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Are Steer owners starting over McCarthy in the hope that Martinez starts on the bench? Guess there's nothing to lose if we have more faith in Villa keeping a cleanie over Southampton

          1. Qaiss
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Martinez signed to be first choice

            1. Jet5605
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Yeah I get that but sometimes new signings are eased in after a game especially if he hasn't trained with his defence

              1. Qaiss
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Keepers don't need easing in

                  • 4 Years

                  Very much this plus he will have had 5 days training with the defenders

          2. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I am, I think the chance it happening is really minimal but you gotta dare to dream

            • 2 Years

            Might as well. It's not like he'll be subbed on later if he doesn't start. U do have mccarthy on bench if martinez starts. But I'm 99% sure Martinez starts

          Mmm struggling with my wildcard team. Always 1-1.5m short of budget. Trying to fit square pegs into round holes at the moment.

          I'm not convinced by any of the 4.5m keepers nor the 6m strikers so looking at the more expensive options. To fit with budget means so many key players missing.

          How would you rank these players for GW2?
          From highest to lowest points potential

          A) Saiss (MCI)
          B) Reece James (LIV)
          C) Bissouma (new)

          1. Chandler Bing

            ACB for potential.
            CAB for safety.

            C>A=B but it's based on points predictions of 2,1,1 so not much to it.

            Those 4.0 defenders were problem also last year for many. They are often forced transfers out sooner or later. Better pay 4.5 and increase tv with better fpl options.

          Feel I made the right call trading Adams for DCL and keeping hold of super Mitro. Hopefully he'll put himself about that Leeds defence at the weekend and get going from there. Saints look woeful mind you Spurs conceded 15 shots v Everton so Ings could still come good. Adams though is a very poor mans Ings. Destitute even.

          Brighton playing 5 at the back would surely improve their defence. Ryan should be a shrewd pick right?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            I prefer Martinez but Ben White should improve Brighton defensively

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Potter changes formation for every match, they played against Chelsea with 3 at the back last season too but played with a 4 defender formation in a lot of the other games.

            2 months, 19 days ago

            Podence for me but I love wolves or stretch to 6.5 for foden if you fancy that sort of thing

          2. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 19 days ago

            a. Klich or Harrison
            b. Podence
            c. ASM

          4. Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Maybe Trossard but Potter’s rotation is always a worry. Same issue with Podence though.

            I'd punt on a Leeds guy, if they play as attacking as they did against Liverpool, could be some high scoring games.

            I’d pop Klich in and bank 0.5. You want someone nailed really no? Strong possibility of pens too.

            Podence? But is this a spot you want to use transfers on?

          7. HugoSimpson2
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Not much going on at the 6 range I feel. Would either stretch to a 6.5 or take Jorginho at 5.0 and keep 1.0 ITB

          8. Mortal.Swinbat
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            What formation are you on? I can't help but think Doherty/Digne offer more than a 6.0 mid. Sadly though a 4.5 defender is much better than a 4.5 mid

        11. HugoSimpson2

          Help!! I've both Pulisic and Alli

          Option A) Hold on to Pulisic, Alli > Greenwood/Foden/Grealish
          Option B) Pulisic & Alli > Bruno & ASM (-4)
          Option C) Pulisic & Alli > Rashford & Traore (-4)

              Hmm - I know Pulisic is a doubt but Chelsea have the baggies, palace and southampton in GW 3,4,5

            Honestly, I don't like any of those options.

            See what happens with Spurs tonight at least, before moving Alli. He's already dropped and may still be an option against a poor starting Southampton.

          3. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I’d hold Puli one.

            If he’s fit GW3 he’s prime. Alli to Greenwood or Rodriguez. 7.0 or thereabouts is a great price point. Zaha or Grealiish (in a bit) and Foden or Barnes (for the brave) make a really nice set of options

              I am in two minds. I might just sod it and get Martial in for -4 (for Ings). They have decent fixtures coming up and a double up looks on the cards.

            Anyone thinks that Mane and Salah will even themselves out on points by the end of the season?
            I have Mané and I think it would be ridiculous to swap him for Salah just because Salah scored a Hat trick last week and Mané had an off day !

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              I always go with Salah because i like my captain to play at home, and Salah does better at home. Excluding captaincy it's 51/49 in Salahs favour still with total points last few seasons.

            2. Zim0

              Salah, in an out of form season, still had more points than mane in his best season so do what u will with that info.

              No.

              Salah should outscore Mane.

              If you picked Mane, you had your reasons, so stay with it.

              • 6 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              It tends to be a coin toss between the two but I like Salah stronger in general. Would I change over to Mane based on a hat trick? No.

              Mane should have been £11.5m really, same as kdb and sterling. Would have made it more interesting.

              If he drops a bit more I might get him in over salah but not at the same price

            Pulisic situation could be one of those one week away from being fit for ages. What are owners doing? Waiting for presser obviously but Lampard probably saying it's a "maybe".

              Your best chance of no drop is Son scoring tonight and playing only 45 mins...

                You are assuming that 5m other players know about and will review what happens in todays match.
                I reckon he will drop regardless

              He is a good penalty taker and won them the game last week so I’m not sure what more Lampard wants to see from him. I am keeping Jorginho for now until I see that Lampard omits him from starting lineup
