The FPL players who have been performing well in Football Index over Xmas


Sponsored by Football Index


The busy festive period is a tricky time for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers.

Get it right, and big hauls await. Get it wrong, and blanks abound, with this year’s Covid-based postponements meaning failures are more common than ever.

But is this the case for Football Index players as well?

Football Index is 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.

I’m actively using FI this season with more than a nod to FPL, seeing which aspects of each game marry up, and which don’t.

GET STARTED WITH FOOTBALL INDEX TODAY

The Match Day Dividends (MDD) – the FI payouts based on individual Gameweek performances – frequently line up with the bigger FPL hauls some players bring in.

Over the Christmas period (Gameweeks 14 to 17), that has been the case, to a degree.

Where the similarities between the two games is even more marked is when we also factor in Media Dividends – those payouts based on the amount of coverage a player earns based on both their current performances and other factors such as transfer gossip.

So big Christmas performers such as Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who raked in 35 FPL points over those three matches, also did well on FI.

He earned nothing extra in MMD, but two first places in FI’s daily Media Dividends tables brought in 10p per Share for his owners.

That lack of MMD returns seems a touch strange, particularly considering he brought in a season’s best 17 points from the 6-2 win over Leeds in Gameweek 14.

But he was eclipsed on that day by Aston Villa’s Anwar El Ghazi, who scored 16 points in FPL as his side beat West Brom 3-0 – enough for him to take home the star player award in FI, which involved a massive 14p per share.

If either player had been bought by an FI Trader, however, they would have earned them extra money again from In-Play Dividends.

These are handed out to Traders for every goal, assist and clean sheet etc that their players produce during the first 30 days of ownership.

That’s a great way of earning rewards during a really busy time such as Christmas in the Premier League.

In fact, festive investment in the English domestic game is a particularly good idea as many of the other major European leagues that FI also features for Dividend payouts are currently on their Christmas breaks.

A quick look at the last ten days of MMD awards backs this up.

Five star awards and six best forward wins have gone to Premier League players. Even more recently, the last four defender and goalkeeper payouts have involved England-based assets.

Timing, however, is everything.

One of the best performers over the festive period has been Arsenal midfielder Bukayo Saka, who has accrued an impressive 19 FPL points from the two post-Christmas matches alone.

That has helped his FI Share Price push up from a mid-December low of around 90p to a New Year peak around the £1.50 level.

He’s also produced solid In-Play Dividends from a goal and two assists in those two matches.

Positive coverage in the press also saw him fall just short of winning Media Dividends on Wednesday.

There should be plenty more starring roles for the up-and-coming winger on the pitch in the future – and some back-page headlines to go with it.

    With Spurs not playing and only Salah (C) left to play, I can see that green arrow I had from yesterday's games turn to orange already.

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Salah (c) is plenty left

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        I seriously hope.

    2. Bounce
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Yep, and what makes it worse is that the only reason people have Robertson and TAA is because they don't have Kane.

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        It’s a choice

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        True.

      3. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Not true.
        Have Salah/Bruno/Son and Kane with Robbo

    3. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Wish I had Salah (C) left. Just regular ol' Salah with Kane (C).

      1. TimoTime
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Who's your vice?

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 hours ago

          Bruno

          1. Podge
            • 10 Years
            9 months, 3 hours ago

            Not awful

            1. Konstaapeli
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 3 hours ago

              Yeah. Not great either.

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Not bad. Salah scored lesser than Bruno last GW. Can happen again.

      Totally agree.

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      So Mr. Clever Cloggs, how did you know the Spurs and City games would be postponed due to Covid. Was there an algorithm?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        There is but you wouldn’t understand it.

    Difference between a casual and an experienced FPL manager when choosing a Leeds defender up to 4.5m

    A. Who scored last week? Alioski? Ok I’m bringing him in

    B. Alioski is far more nailed and it is only a matter of time when he plays as a fullback and gets attacking returns.

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      B. Was meant to read Ayling. Haha!!

      1. Podge
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        The difference between a casual and experienced poster right there 😉

    What do I do here with 1 FT? Was originally thinking bb in dgw but that could be out the window..

    Martinez
    Robo Cancelo Mitchell
    Salah Bruno Bowen Raphinha

    1. Jonflamingo

    Just opened a decent red wine to celebrate being able to field 10 players, and to get a little buzz on 🙂

    TAA, Robbo and Salah (C) lets go!

    Only second GW this season as a Salah owner. Feels much better than being a non-owner too 😀

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      aren't you posting for the first time ever?

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Let me enjoy the evening, please 🙂
        Your team looks great for next GW, and you'll still be ahead of me after those hauls from Robbo and TAA tonight 😉

    2. Rupert The Horse

          Gorgeous. A little light for me but how has that been sat around for so long?

    3. Podge
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      You might consider a name change

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Haha!
        Could be the time to change 😉

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Don't drink too much. You might end up taking a -48.

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        I'll most definitely not be making any transfers until around 1 hour before the deadline in the next many GW's 😀

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 hours ago

          10 minutes would be wiser.

          1. Salarrivederci
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 3 hours ago

            Yes 😉 But then I would be scared of too much traffic on the site making it shut down or something 😀

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 3 hours ago

              Wise

  15. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    Come on TAA Robo and Mane punish us Son and Kane owners.

  16. Tommie
    • 6 Years

    Thank god I had banford as vc
    Shame son wasn't playing green arrow

  17. Bounce

    Looks like the average will be pushing 50 after autosubs.

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      That’s pretty incredible isn’t it given the carnage

    2. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      crazy. leeds and saints cs points i guess...

  18. Fantabulous KdB
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    Castagne or Justin? Assuming both are nailed

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Justin is cheaper

      1. Fantabulous KdB
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Who gets more points though?

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 3 hours ago

          Not enough sample size to judge Castagne as he only played a few games.

  19. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    So close to KDB and Douglas to Robertson and Raphinha. Already down 8 pts from not pulling the trigger. Written in the stars for Robbo to now haul

  20. acidicleo
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    Wilson haul incoming as I sold him for Wood..

    1. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      That a euphemism? 😉

    2. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year

      I need Wilson haul SOOO bad

  21. Homer21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    What a backline for Wilson to have a go at 😉

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Look at me, I have a new hat.

  22. ivantys
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    Those planning to FH in 18 are the biggest winners as they don't own any spurs, city players...

    1. Podge
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Exactly

      1. ivantys
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        And now if they add more fixtures into 18, it's only gonna benefit those free hitters more so annoying.

  23. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    Imagine Salah score hattie tonight.

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      that is red arrow even if he is your captain since mana taa robbo bobby will be part of those goals

      1. Niho992
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        I have TAA and 50 points already. No chance for red arrows.

    2. Kun Tozser
      • 6 Years

  27. Tommie
    • 6 Years

    Atleast Wilson playing tonight might get some lucky points from my bench

  28. acidicleo
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    How' doesTAA vs Robbo EO compare?
    Can TAA owners punish Robbo owners badly?

    1. Podge
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Trent around 5% Robbo 25

  29. Vazza

    Difference between a casual and an experienced FPL manager when choosing a Leeds defender up to 4.5m

    A. Who scored last week? Alioski? Ok I’m bringing him in

    B. Ayling is far more nailed and it is only a matter of time when he plays as a fullback and gets attacking returns.

    Question-

    Which camp are you in?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      I remember comparing Ayling and Dallas in my gw5 wildcard, was not much between them and went with Ayling.

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        There still isn’t much between them once Ayling returns to his regular fullback position

    2. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Is it double up on Dallas?

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        I don’t have Dallas mate. Can’t afford him

    3. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      Dallas, all day long

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        Can’t afford Dallas

  30. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 hours ago

    Lewis cameo would be huge

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 3 hours ago

      1pt is not huge! (owner!)

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 3 hours ago

        It is this week

      Need exactly rhat. Newcastle 5 - 0 down with Salah hat trick. Lewis comes for 30 seconds and gets 1 point. 1 point is massive this GW.
