Football Index: Dividends for top FPL performers Walker, Vardy and Wolves assets


Sponsored by Football Index


Fantasy Premier League and Football Index (FI) may not seem like the most natural of bedfellows but there is, in fact, a lot of cross-over between the two.

If a player is racking up the points in FPL, the chances are he will be benefitting from the array of dividends on offer in FI.

For those not aware of Football Index, it’s a kind of stock market where people use real money to bet on football.

You buy shares in individual players whose value can rise or fall depending on their performance both on and off the field.

And it’s those on-field displays in particular where there are a lot of similarities between FPL and FI.

GET STARTED WITH FOOTBALL INDEX TODAY

Take Kyle Walker, for example.

The full-back delivered a 15-pointer for his FPL owners on Saturday, scoring the only goal of the game, keeping a clean sheet and registering maximum bonus points in Manchester City’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

In FI, he earned £0.04 per share in In-Play Dividends for his goal. And, as a result of the subsequent positive media coverage, won Media Dividends on Saturday for a further £0.05 per share.

If that wasn’t enough, his Buy Price went up, too.

Before the win over the Blades, you could’ve bet on the England international at roughly £0.49 a share. That quickly peaked at £0.68 on the day of the game before settling at around £0.60, an increase of over 20% on his Buy Price.

OTHER GAMEWEEK 7 STARS

It was another double-digit haul for Jamie Vardy in FPL last weekend, his third of the campaign.

A consistent performer in FPL, he has likewise proved to be a reliable bet in FI on Match Days and has picked up a few Media Dividends along the way.

Following his outing at Elland Road, the Leicester City striker has now accumulated £0.73 dividends per share so far this season. That’s a very high return already in 2020/21 for the striker who sits at £1.11.

In-Play Dividends are always welcome but Match Day Dividends can be the icing on the cake.

These are slightly different in that they are based on the underlying data that drives a lot of Fantasy games, such as shots, chances created and interceptions – most of which can be found in our Premium Members Area.

On each day that there is a football match in any of the eligible competitions, Football Index ranks all the participating footballers by their Match Day score – and the leading players win dividends for that day.

On Friday’s ‘Bronze Day’, Wolves squad members made up three of the four top players thanks to their contributions in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Ruben Neves and Pedro Neto were Top Midfielder and Forward respectively, winning £0.04 per share as a result.

Rayan Ait Nouri – who marked his debut with a 15-pointer in FPL – went one better, scooping not only Top Defender but Star Player, earning him a grand total of £0.08 per share.

The wing-back’s Buy Price has risen 1.4% over the last week, too.

TEAM OF THE MONTH – OCTOBER

We’ve touched on Match Day, In Play and Media Dividends already – but there is a fourth we should acknowledge.

At the end of each month, Team of the Month Dividends are paid out on the top three forwards, top four midfielders, top three defenders and the top goalkeeper.

Players are ranked according to the total of their top three Match Day scores in a given calendar month.

Featuring in the Champions League is a big boon on that front, what with the Match Day score multiplier for European football.

And, wouldn’t you know it, Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes both made the Team of the Month for October, earning £0.01 and £0.03 per share respectively.

With another three rounds of Champions League games to follow after the international break, those players whose teams are competing on the European front will stand a better chance of more Team of the Month appearances in November and December.

    Hmmm football index...

    1. Lammoth

      The FI market is in appalling state at the moment - encouraging people to gamble on it without any meaningful insight on what it actually going on is irresponsible. You could lose a lot of money very quickly on there right now.

      If anyone is thinking of joining then I would advise treading carefully and reading some content from a site who actually have some experience with the product and know what they're doing - FFS may know FPL, but they should not be trusted with FI advice from what I've seen.

    Any help appreciated: 1 FT, 0.1 ITB

    Mendy
    Chill - Robbo - Dallas
    Salah - Son - Grealish - Pulisic*
    Kane - DCL - Bamford

    Steer - Saiss* - Stephens - 3.9

    A) Save FT
    B) Pulisic > Ziyech, Mahrez, Havertz, Foden, Bowen, Mount?
    C) Robbo > Cress/Coufal
    D) Saiss > Cress/Coufal
    E) Something else

    Looking to get in City assets (mainly Son > KDB) around GW 9/10 or so.

    1. lilmessipran

      D looks good maybe throw in zouma as well, however if you wish to do son to Kdb you might need to downgrade robbo or kane

      1. Drogba Legend
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Cheers. Still unsure about Puli but even if he is fit I doubt he starts.

        I'll probably keep Zouma off the list for Saiss replacements since i already have Mendy and Chilly and would prefer an attacker. I was also thinking DCL + Puli > Werner and Fornals/Bowen for a hit. Kane and/or Robbo would have to be downgraded to fund KDB like you said. Unsure.

    Ryan to >

    I have Chilwell if that makes any difference

    A) Mendy
    B) Martinez
    C) Fabianski
    D) McCarthy

    1. Drogba Legend

      I'd go A or C

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Thanks. Yeah that’s where I’m at. Martinez is essentially 5m, which kind of rules him out.

        Shame fab isn’t 4.5

    2. JelliedSpark968

      • 6 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Sterling has been a dead weight. Fixtures are turning but if he's stuck on the left wing going forward he's not good value at all.

      1. JelliedSpark968
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I'm not a fan at the moment either. Auba? Mane?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I probably wouldn't sell. Mane looks good from next gw

          1. Brosstan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Wouldn't sell now*

      2. RealSocialDads
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Sterling is a better fpl option on the wing than he is up top

    2. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I would roll. 2FT after the ITB would be very useful

      Alternatively Maupay > Bamford/Antonio if fit

  9. Magic Zico

    • 2 Years

    Ok, hopefully this is GTG? Good luck all!

      Biden= typical corrupt self serving and serving in the interests of mega corporations type politician. Establishment.

      Trump= America's solution to that, is somehow an even more corrupt person only serving in his own interests and just all round poobag, but at least he's not the establishment(!)

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I like how the Dems decided the thing that made Trump popular was that he was a crooked, loopy old sex pest, and therefore their candidate should be one too.

        1. Bushwhacker

        not if they cant keep CS

          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Yes but this happened last season where they got hardly any in the first games. They get attacking returns anyway. Matip is back now also. TAA is just a set and forget imo.

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            TAA has ONE attacking return and ONE CS in 7.
            kak.

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Robbo 1 CS, I goal and 1 assist in 7. Nothing to write home about.

            2. Qaiss
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              And? He’s definitely capable of doing more, as he’s proven before, especially with nicer fixtures coming. I don’t think having him and Robbo is needed though but one is fine for sure.

              If you don’t own or have way to get back and TAA gets an 18 point haul against Brighton in a couple weeks, people will just rip their teams up to get him.

              1. Christina.
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                I'm not saying he wont(obviously), but he currently aint so why should non owners worry? And getting TAA or Robbo wont result in ripping up teams. You just sell someone. Vvd will be a big loss to their def.

                Its like the people on here WC just so that they can say they bought Bruno/Martial/City because "their is a biiiig fixture swing around wk 10"... in the process they sell the in form Son/Kane.

    Although I think all of these ad articles are rubbish It doesn't bother me as I just scroll by to the comments section. Not sure why people feel the need to moan so much - the site needs to get money from varies avenues, this is one of them.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I don't think anyone would complain if they sliced some of the 'pro' pundits and dross like the scout network as a result of decreased revenue from gambling sites

      1. Kudo Warrior
        • 7 Years

        Agreed.

    Folks, how does Greenwood sound as my Foden or Barnes replacement?

    Looking something different in order to afford KDB the following week

      1. Tinmen
        • 7 Years

        Possibly, though It’s the West Brom fixture I’m fixated on next weekend

    Anyone else really struggling with captaincy? Either Kane or Salah for me, Son?

      Kane - can't afford to not captain him given he will probably be around 170% EO where I am

      What to do?

      A. Trent/Robbo to Chilwell and roll a FT. Bench one of Ayling/Watkins.
      B. Downgrade Trent to Kilman (bench) so I can afford Watkins to Werner.

      Who's the best Chelsea defender? Regardless of price

        Chilwell.

          Thought so. Seen some hype around Zouma though

            Yeah but you said regardless of price

              I still mean regardless of price, just wondering if Zouma has been more attacking/more nailed etc

      If transfers were not an issue, how'd you rate this?

      Martínez (Macey)
      Chilwell - Robertson - Gabriel (Coufal - Mitchell)
      Zaha - Fernandes - Salah - Son - Mahrez
      Wilson - Bamford (Brewster)
