Pro Pundits - Lateriser

Three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser on Aguero, Villa and a polarising FPL season

The 2019/20 number one Fantasy manager in India, Lateriser addresses a rollercoaster campaign, FPL ownership, Brighton, Villa, Sergio Aguero, his Gameweek 6 team and more in his latest Pro Pundits piece.


This season is not for the weak-hearted and there are just way too many good options in this game at present.

Before Project Restart last season, the premium player conversation primarily revolved around Liverpool and Manchester City assets. Now we have a Spurs team that have accumulated the most number of big chances in the league in the premium conversation, in addition to assets from Manchester United and Chelsea who have shown us enough in the recent past to be a part of this conversation.

You are going to have to develop a very thick skin this season as there will be many Gameweeks where players you own don’t get points and others are getting monster hauls. But on the flipside, the opportunities in this game are very enticing too.

We have Liverpool and Manchester City enjoying a decent bunch of fixtures in the next two Gameweeks and the likes of Sadio Mane (£11.9m), Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) and Sergio Aguero (£10.4m) all have ownerships of under 10% at the time of writing. Mane has looked very sharp this season and has the highest xG amongst all midfielders, and next faces an obliging Sheffield United side that have lost one of their best defenders for a long time and who just don’t look like the team from 2019/20.

Manchester City scored 95 goals in their season without Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) and that makes Sterling and Aguero perfectly viable ‘differential’ captaincy options should you fancy it – which brings me to my point.

This is something I’d spoken about in my very first article for Fantasy Football Scout and it is just something I want to reiterate. Given the wide range of options that we have this season, it is very important to find your identity as a Fantasy Premier League manager. This is what I said back then:

If you are going to get sleepless nights going without Mohamed Salah, don’t do it. It doesn’t suit your personality. It’s not good for your blood pressure and you don’t end up having fun. You’re better off playing the odds and percentages game because that is where your comfort zone lies.

The game has opened up very nicely for the ‘dullards’ as well as the ‘opportunists’ with the wide variety of options we have. Given the increased impact of social media on everything mental, if you can’t handle a huge haul from a highly owned player, get that highly owned player because going maverick isn’t for you.

I never talk a lot about ownership percentages but given the nature of the season, I thought it was important to address. Seeing the high cost of transfers that FPL managers have had to pay on the ‘Rough with the Smooth’ section on the Scoutcast this season made me want to talk about this because I get the sense that there are going to be many difficult FPL decisions this season leading to a high variance in outcome. You need to be aware of your personality and tailor your FPL approach accordingly. This season, variance is a lot higher than usual and I expect that trend to continue. Be prepared for it and remember that this is only a game, one which involves a fair amount of luck and unpredictability as well.

Now that philosophy is out of the way, I want to talk about a few more objective things.

What is FPL Upside Chasing and how can I implement it in 2020/21?

    The more I look at Kane’s stasts the more I lean towards captaining him over Salah. Those are some elite of the elite level stats

    1. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Until he blanks with this amazing fixture run, I'm not taking the armband off him 😀

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Kane will simmer down 😉

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          At this rate, no chance 😉

      Looks like kane of old where he bangs in goals with such ease. First goal against west ham was a classic kane display. Burnley look fragile in defense copared to previous seasons

        Kane not just scoring but also creating. Amazing at the moment.

      2. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah not to mention he has suddenly become one of the biggest chance creators in the league as well

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I'm now wondering if the order could be
      1) Mane
      2) Kane
      3) Salah
      Mane's NPxG and BC/90 are great, excellent underlyings. Sheff U concede most chances from their right flank. Salah is Salah though. Can't get a confident read on Kane so I'm picking Mane, I see Sheffield United conceding 3-4+ at Anfield so that's the decision made

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah Mane looks good this week if you own him for sure

    4. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I agree. Great option for a few weeks especially for those with wildcards that allow people to reorganize once fixtures swing for a lot of teams about gw9

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 3 days ago

        With how lethal Spurs are at countering I would be more wary of removing for tougher fixtures

    5. @FPLMason
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Kane has looked like the best version of himself. I don't believe I've seen him at such a high level creation wise.
      Gonna be a close C option this week.

  2. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Pick 1 to start:

    A) Castagne (ARS-A)
    B) Dallas (AVL-H)
    C) Mitchell (FUL-A)

    Cheers!

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year

      A

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      If you have castagne then just play him every week imo

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah, that's what I was thinking :/

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Dallas then Mitchell

    4. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I'd always play my premium attacking defender, so A.

      He got an assist at City if I remember correctly.

      I own Lucas Digne and his points have been: tot 12 pots, WBA 1pt, BHA 1pt, LIV 7pts

      Can't often predict when the premiums will score points, but they will score points.

      1. Rains of Castamere

        *tot 12pts

    2. The Senate
      • 2 Years

    I’ve done a little stat digging...

    Sons conversion rate from shots in the box
    Last season: 18%
    This season: 77%

    Safe to say he’s overperforming, think I’m going with Kane over Son

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      What about Kane?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        25% last season, 29% this season

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Beautiful

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Can’t get that in the members area 😉

    2. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      He goes on crazy scoring runs and then drops off. Nows the only time to have him

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Think I may have missed the train with Son already tbh

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          No worries. Many other players who'll do well too. No one is essential even with spurs scoring so many i don't think it'll last.

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      He is so cheap that its not a big deal whether he is underperforming or overperforming. Have to ride the wave for next 3 and then move on if required...

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        9.4 isn’t exactly cheap, in his current form though he is completely undervalued

    4. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I don't think it's necessarily safe to say he's overperforming from that alone, though you're likely right that he is to some degree.

      It's also possible that most of his shots in the box are higher quality chances. If, for example, he's in alone more often, of course we'd expect his conversion rate to improve. If last season he had more shots from the corner of the box with players in between him and the goal, that would be expected.

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yep agreed, that’s where the eye test and xG comes in

    5. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      It depends on the quality of the chance too. He’s always been clinical and he’s literally getting glaring opportunities.

  9. JUNITED
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Kane or Aguero??

    Already have Son but no city players.

    1. Flair

      Kane

    2. Hansel

      For me, it looks the same old in the members area, and completely busted on the main page.

          Still the old one in the members area. Is that ok?

      It works much less well on a phone now - difficult to scroll up and down on it because it keeps catching on individual teams.

      Hasn't changed at all for me, unfortunately. Chrome on Windows 10. Logged out, cleared cache, exited chrome, restarted chrome and re-logged in, no difference.

        We've had a few of these, but they've all been fixed after clearing of cookies/cache, which makes me think it's not something on our side.

        Is it working for you in a private browser?

          Just the same in google incognito. I don't know if it's just my duff memory or not, but when I highlight a column a down arrow appears at the top with what looks like a very small 1 over a very small q, but maybe that happened before as well.

      How often, if ever, does FFS adjust the ticker attack and defense team ratings during the season?

        Yeah, about every 4 weeks.

        Any shorter and it's hard to really get a handle on how form has changed or is changing. They were last redone during the IB

      Hi Geoff, thank you for the great work, I use the data for the last two years and it's incredible. I have one question about the xA, how it's calculated because I looked at it a lot of times and it really looked like there is something that is not quite right but now with Kane, it's quite obvious, 8 BCC and 1.02 xA?

    Captain thoughts please.

    Variation of this non premium side crushed it last week with Son C.

    Currently on Rodriguez

      What is this

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        My non premium set up. 😀

        Bit gutted by Brighton last minute goal last time.

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Southampton games are goal filled with that high line, Rodriguez could be playing more advanced based on the small sample size against Brighton, and Everton look great so I see the appeal

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Yep that’s my thinking right now

          Can see Burnley sitting in against Spurs and don’t think there’ll be the break out goals - Spurs will need to work pretty hard for goals

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 3 days ago

            I think it's more of a Kane game than a Son game

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Son

        Still a bit reluctant to bet against Burnley defence.

        Have 1.5 itb

        But Zaha out this week makes zero sense to me really given Fulham

        Looking at moving TAA on to a premium attacker next time or week after perhaps. Havertz Jim Zaha are likely fall guys to get either Mo Bruno or Kane.

      Remember Richarlison is out so I would be cautious about Everton

    8. NateDogsCats
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I'm going with Rodriguez too, was tempted by DCL and Son but Soton's high line is begging to be cut apart by someone like him. Only qualm I have is they lose a little flair without Richarlison there but should have more than enough regardless to put Southampton away especially with their poor home form.

      don't really fancy taking a hit for a defender so I've got to play one of:
      (a) Mitchell (ful) (rotation risk)
      (b) Justin (ARS)
      (c) KWP (EVE)

      which would you go for?

      TAA Robbo Justin
      Salah Son Rodriguez Podence

      Steer, Bissouma, Mitchell, Taylor

      A) Jimi -> Kane

      McCarthy Nyland
      TAA Justin KWP Lascelles Taylor
      Salah Son James Pereira Bissouma
      Kane Wilson Mitrovic

      A) Wilson - > Aguero
      B) Wilson - > DCL
      C) Other suggestions?
      A Villa defender is something on my mind tbh. It should be noted that Aguero in would mean I would have no more cash itb. This would render me in need of downgrading TAA for more cash flow.

      Recall preseason comment that Werner is the ultimate streaky player - either boiling hot or stone cold with nothing much in between.

      Chelsea have sucked mostly so far but still have plenty of goals.

      Goal for Werner this week and I’m going to be tempted. Havertz now consistently central and settling in nicely and Puli out wide with Ziyech looming too.

      Bandwagon ahoy?

      1. Flair

        With DCL and Kane as my two forwards I can't bring him in. Great option with those fixtures

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Well done on Harry. Made the horror move to lose him on early WC.

          Hoping to give it a couple of weeks to decide on next move. Bale could be a big factor and if he settles then HK looks a shoo in.

          Part of temptation to me is that he might allow Bruno into my midfield. He’s ticking over pretty well no?

          Does he though? The hat trick was freakish, other than that he’s scored in 1s which means he ticks over lovely but doesn’t really hurt you and it’s a brave move to captain him.

          • 5 Years

          oh actually mane didnt haul last time, in my mind, i was still thinking that mane got goal and assist and maximum bonus (that didnt happen of course thanks to VAR)

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              How is a pen any more unpredictable than any other type of goal?

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 3 days ago

                I mean... comparisons are b/w NPxG vs xG. Pretty sure the chance of scoring any other type of goal combined are higher than the chances of a penalty

                1. No Professionals
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  Yes but you’re combining all other types of goals which I don’t get. A penalty is a goal the same as any other type so don’t know why they should be separated. Would be like excluding headers?

                  1. No Professionals
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 3 days ago

                    And I’m not being difficult I’m genuinely trying to understand the concept.

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      1 month, 3 days ago

                      My outlook is I take NPxG is so I can see how good a player is at goalscoring without the random factor of penalties. Logic is: who knows when a pen will be given VS I can be reasonably confident this man will score even if the ref doesn't point to the spot.

                      Course my logic could be wrong and pens are still useful but I find them trickier when determining captaincy. If Mane's NPxG is higher and Salah's xG is inflated by his triple pen party, shown by his inferior NPxG, can I really justify putting the (C) on Salah and factor in a pen that may never come?
