The House’s Money: Why maintaining a good start to the FPL season is so difficult

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times …it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”

  • Charles Dickens, ‘A Tale of Two Cities’.

Dickens may not have been speaking specifically about the opening Gameweeks of an FPL season (we’ll never know for sure) but his words are, nonetheless, fairly appropriate. While it has, indeed, been a tale of two Gameweeks thus far, there will be some who have done far, far better than others.

I love the start of a new FPL campaign as much as the next Fantasy manager but, I have to admit, it’s also among the most challenging parts to navigate successfully. Not only are we operating with very little information, but many of us also have to deal with the fact that some mini-league rivals have, somehow, already opened up what might appear to be unassailable leads.

Of course, this is the part of the season where we regularly preach patience and encourage people to avoid panic-driven decisions that they might later regret. Phrases like ‘it’s a marathon, not a sprint’ are commonplace on FPL forums and we might also comfort ourselves with our vague childhood memories of a story about a race between a tortoise and a hare.

This article, however, will focus on why those people who have shot to the front probably won’t stay there, and why those chasing shouldn’t panic, yet.

The House Money Effect

Gamblers and investors, in particular, may be familiar with the ‘House Money Effect’, a cognitive bias first popularised by Nobel Prize-winning economist Richard Thaler. 

Essentially, the House Money Effect draws off the principles of ‘mental accounting’; the idea that we categorise money and expenditures into different accounts in our mind, and we evaluate outcomes in relation to these. 

So, for example, we might have mental accounts such as ‘beer money’, ‘college funds’ or ‘holiday money.’

The House Money Effect often occurs when we receive money in an atypical manner. For example; winning a bet, receiving a bonus or profiting from an investment. 

Behavioural psychologists have observed that people take far greater risks with such sums than they would with their savings or regular earnings. They also find that people also tend to be more generous with such windfalls than they might otherwise be.

The proposed reason for this phenomenon is that, psychologically, people don’t perceive these sums to really be their money, it goes into a completely different mental account to money earned in the normal way. It’s the casinos or ‘the house’s money’ and, thus, we tend to treat it that way. At best, we make more money from the risks we take with it. And at worst, we end up with our original stake, no better or worse off than we were before and, because we think we’ll be okay with either outcome, we’re inclined to treat it as fun money.

I would argue that, due to their windfall of FPL points, Fantasy managers who do very well in the opening few Gameweeks are substantially more at risk of succumbing to the House Money Effect than normal. 

This might translate into them spending some of those points via hits, making riskier transfers, making transfers when it might have been objectively more sensible to save them or simply being less rigorous in their selections, captaincy or transfer decisions. 

Now, this isn’t to say that high-flying managers simply got there by luck, much in same as an investor doesn’t profit entirely by luck, it’s simply stating that, due to this cognitive bias, the extra points they have scored may seem like ‘house money’ to them, and they’re likely to be more inclined to risk them as a result. 

Essentially; if they blow their lead, they’re no worse off than their competitors and this, mentally, becomes their baseline.

How Spurs and Everton's new signings fared in their FPL Gameweek 1 debuts 1

There is some evidence that may support this having already occurred too. Between Gameweeks 1 and 2, the average number of points spent on transfers via hits by FPL managers was 2.28 points overall but, among the Top 10k, this rose almost 20% to 2.72. 

Rationally-speaking, the Top 10k should have had less cause to make any transfers, let alone take hits, based on Gameweek 1 but, instead, they made more transfers and spent more points on them. 

The Top 10k also scored fewer gross points on average than the overall (53.27 vs 59.55). Naturally, in a single gameweek, this could simply be luck, but it could also be a result of less rigorous decision-making caused by the House Money Effect.

So, for those chasing, the key lessons from this are to not panic, to not make the same mistakes that the people above you probably will, and to take advantage of these mistakes to close the gap. That means avoiding hits, risky captaincies and panic moves like Wildcarding unnecessarily. 

It is worth bearing in mind that many of those who held firm with their Gameweek 1 squad profited as a result in Gameweek 2. As Guns ‘n’ Roses singer Axl Rose once said, “All we need is a little patience” though, again, it’s unclear whether he was talking about FPL specifically.

Naturally, there is also a fairly obvious lesson in all of this for those FPL managers who are doing really well after two Gameweeks, which I suppose I could spell out, but, honestly, who really wants to help those people anyway?

      I’d prefer Martínez and Wood to Guaita and Mitro but I like the cut of your jib

      Looks good. Good options all over and still gives flexibility for changes later.

      Hopefully you get that drop before deadline.

        Havertz is 4th for goals and assists in the last year, only behind Messi, Ronaldo and Lewandowski

          Do you mean 2019 by last year? He certainly wasn't in 19/20 season (behind many in PL), but I haven't checked the 2019 year stats.

              Between 25/09/19 to 25/09/20:

          GL man. I've noticed that a lot of my drafts rely heavily on the 0.2 swing from Werner dropping to 9.4 and Son rising to 9.1. Going to struggle without that 0.2

    Currently on wildcard. Pretty nailed on 12 out of 15 players. For the 3 spots still up in the air, i could use some opinions.
    Which combo looks the best to you?

    a) Son/Wood/4,5 mid - 343 base formation
    b) Son/Foden/4,5 striker - 352 base formation

            Arsenal defence much more solid than Leicester’s patchwork effort

          3. Klaren
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Arsenal became a very defensive minded team since Arteta took over and I trust their defence so much more than I trust their attack. Of course Salah can still score but I think Man City have the easier opponents so I prefer KDB.

            1. El Lobito 10

          I don’t really like this article. I mean how can you say those of us who’ve had good starts are more than likely going to fade away?

          We’ve been rewarded for making good decisions - Captain Salah at home to a newly promoted team for example. Not getting sucked into Chelsea who’ve practically got a new team. They need time.

          Yeah we’ve had fortune with Son or Kane but we picked them because they were near the top of the season ticker for attacking returns.. Jiménez was ranked 1st of all attackers to deliver the most points for the first 5 GW’s according to the members area. Not our problem you ignored it.

          We’ll keep doing well if we keep making logical decisions and staying calm.

            Evening Lads!

            Which WC draft looks better?

            (A)
            Martinez (Steer)
            TAA - Saiss - James (Mitchell, Lamptey)
            Salah - KDB - J.Rod - Prodence (Burke)
            Werner - Mitro - Jimmy

            (B)
            Martinez (Steer)
            TAA - Samedo - James (Mitchell, Dune)
            Salah - KDB - Prodence - Son (Burke)
            Werner - Mitro - DCL

              B - Maybe Saiss instead of Semedo for some ITB and to see how he plays first?

            Interesting article by Mr March
            But could 'The house money effect' not just be speculating to accumulate in some cases. Like a large property tycoon working from a position of strength?
            I noticed Simon quoted the GnR song 'Patience'
            But I wildcarded gw2 and gained 40 points.
            For those who did not do well.
            'Right Next Door To Hell' and/or 'Don't Cry' might be appropriate?

              RMT WC:
              Martinez (steer)

              VVD Justin Saiss Lamptey (mitchel)
              Salah KDB Son Zaha (Anguisa)
              Werner Jiminez (Davies)
              PLEASE CRITICSE IF NECCESSARY

                Bit worried about your bench and lack of everton players. Also Justin not long term, likely replaced by Pereira when he returns, consider Taylor instead.

                1. Bennyboy1907
                    6 months, 25 days ago

                    Switched taylor for Justin. Is everything else gtg

                      6 months, 25 days ago

                      If you've had Justin since the start, he may rise again before Sat, so may be able to pocket an extra 0.1 if you hold off switching.

                  6 months, 25 days ago

                  Agree that Justin isn't long term. Taylor at 4.5 instead? Vinagre if Marcal is injured for awhile?

                A. Zaha + Castagne
                B. Hamez + James

                Feel like consensus is B but Palace has amazing fixtures for next bit and I worry about James rotation. Also already have DCL.

                  I went James with enough cash to get Castagne for James or Saiss if either loses their place. Castagne has ManCity so can wait. James for at lest next 2

                Would you rather play Justin or Soucek this GW? Justin won’t keep a CS but he has attacking returns in both games so far whereas soucek has blanked. What to do?

                  • 4 Years
                  6 months, 25 days ago

                  I'd got Soucek. Based off how Man City played against Wolves and with Ndidi out Justin could get a 0 or minus

                Would appreciate some thoughts on my current WC draft,

                Martinez (Steer)
                TAA, James, Saiss (Lamptey, Mitchell)
                KDB, Salah, Podence, Foden (Burke)
                Werner, DCL, Jimenez

                0.5 ITB

                  Exact same as mine ATM so looks solid 😉

                  My WC team except I went Forster over Steer in case McCarthy loses place. So very good team!

                    yeah I was thinking of that as I've been seeing some articles about Gunn being shipped out too

                  Probably the best you can do without taking Son or Rodriguez

                  Very nice team! I'm playing it a bit risky by going JRod + Samedo over Podence + TAA.

                Locks:
                Martinez/Steer
                ____ James Saiss Lampy Mitchell
                Salah KdB Son Foden _____
                Jimmy DCL _____

                WC Team1 - aggressively focused on fixtures for Wolves, has a chelski attacker. Rest is template
                Semedo, Havertz/Pulisic, (Brewster)

                WC Team2 - the boring and safe option. get a liverpool defender and a 6.5 striker juggling form and fixtures, better bench
                Robbo, (Soucek), Wood/Antonio

                fwiw, RMT says team1 is better for the next 5 or so (until WHU fixtures turn) and then team2 is better thereafter.
                so im leaning towards a team1 --> Team2 switch around then, although wolves fixtures persist up until wk9, and chelsea wk12 so its good long term either way.

                  You can do quite a lot if you drop Son. Depends how locked "locked" is 🙂

                    dropping Son is worse structure wise.

                I want to cover the following bases:
                1) Double Pool defense
                2) Son
                3) Werner
                4) KDB + Salah

                It actually looks doable...I’m pretty surprised.

                Martinez
                Robertson VVD James Saiss
                Salah KDB Son Podence
                DCL Werner

                Forster, Davis, Anguissa, Mitchell

                  The team I really want to go with is...

                  Martinez
                  TAA Robbo Saiss
                  Salah KDB Barnes Podence
                  DCL Wood Jiminez

                  Forster, Anguissa, Lamptey, Mitchell with some money to spare, but I feel like I will give into the template.

                I am watching Martial's price like a hawk could survive a price drop next gameweek. Looks close.
                Currently 6.1m itb
                Plan a 3-5-2
                gw4 Salah in for Bissouma
                gw4 Brewster in for Martial -4
                gw5 Robertson in for Ferguson bang on the money

                If Martial does drop could change my idea completely - Mane or even get Werner for Martial or maybe get Adams VVD or Fernandes
                Amazing how one .1 could change a course of a season potentially.
