Pro Pundit Teams

What I’ve learned about key FPL assets at half-way stage of unpredictable season

As we are midway through the season, it is an important time for some reflection which, for me, involves pausing and looking at some numbers.

And, anyone who knows me well enough should not be surprised to see that includes assessing the performance of big hitters against opposition of varying degree. 

It has not been a good first half of the season but, with all my chips intact, I’m hoping I can turn things around in the second half of the campaign. I’ve been making some steady progress in the last few weeks but it isn’t the Nitro boost I’m hoping for. 

I’ve recorded six green arrows out of the last eight Gameweeks where I’ve steadily climbed from 3.1 million to 1.47 million and I am hoping that trajectory continues.

This article is based on what I did at two previous occasions last season as well where I look at the performance of big hitters against different quality defences and try to make sense of the numbers and how it can help us in the future. This is the link to my previous article.

Just like my last piece on this subject, I divided the league into three tiers of defence (based on my opinion, form and some statistics). They are fairly similar to the assumptions I had last time around but please treat them strictly as my opinion. 

Then using the very useful ‘Per 90’ and ‘Performance Versus’ filters from the Premium Members Area, I tabulated the performances of these big hitters against the three categories of defences to see how much of an effect the fixtures have on them. 

I’ve delved further with my analysis this time around to see if we could gauge anything substantial from this data.

First off, the categorisation of teams is as follows:

  • The Kolarov (Top Tier) – Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottehnham Hotspur, Leicester City, Manchester United
  • The Lescott (Middle Tier) – Arsenal, Burnley, Everton, Wolves, Aston Villa, Southampton, West Ham
  • The Bramble (Bottom Tier) – Brighton, Newcastle United, Leeds United, West Brom, Sheffield United, Fulham, Crystal Palace

This table comparison gives us the Goals + Assists per 90 for these assets against different defences in the previous season as well as this season. The first thing that jumps out to me is the averages. 

While there was a distinct difference in the performance of assets against varying opposition in the previous season, the same hasn’t been the case this season. This is one of the reasons my ‘upside chasing’ strategy where I try to bring in players to captain in a good fixture hasn’t worked as effectively as last season primarily because broadly speaking, the performance of these premium picks against Kolarov (0.5 to 0.6) and Lescott (0.6 to 0.8) teams have improved. 

Secondly, players are not as explosive against Bramble teams as they were last season (1.0 to 0.8). And thirdly, my subjective opinion is that the likes of Harry Kane (£11.1m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and Son Heung-min (£9.7m) who are the highly owned assets in this game, haven’t really slowed down to an extreme degree which makes going for other big hitters, even for captaincy, more risky than it was last season because simply put, you’re betting against players who aren’t really slowing down.

Let’s now look at the performance of players on a team to team basis.

MANCHESTER CITY

Let’s talk about Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) first (in case you missed it, he looks out for a while). He’s playing in a slightly different position compared to last year and while he was hugely consistent against opposition of varying degree last season, he’s underperformed a bit against the Kolarov and Bramble teams this season. 

This makes sense to me because of two things. Firstly, Manchester City haven’t been the same free-scoring team this year that they were in the last season and arguably more value lies in their defence. Secondly, I also put down De Bruyne’s underperformance down to the fact that he and his compatriots have missed a lot of the chances created as well and he has been underperforming compared to his underlying numbers. It is worth noting that he has three goals and an xG of 7.48 this season. 

Raheem Sterling’s (£11.4m) numbers expectedly have gone down this season. What is worth noting is that he still has fairly strong numbers against ‘Bramble’ teams and is facing West Brom and Sheffield United in his next two fixtures. It is also worth noting that Phil Foden (£6.3m) has done fairly well against Kolarov and Lescott teams in the limited minutes he’s afforded against them.

Liverpool

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) has fairly consistent numbers compared to last season with a slight improvement in performance against Lescott and Bramble teams. This despite the five blanks (hello Zambian FPL addict) that he has had off late. It is worth noting that Salah still has the second best performance against Bramble teams, behind Jamie Vardy (£10.1m). 

Sadio Mané’s (£11.8m) numbers are still fairly consistent against Kolarov and Lescott teams but he’s seen quite a fall against the Bramble teams this season. The emergence of penalty picks and Mané’s form quite hasn’t been there in the first half of the season and it is worth monitoring if things change in the second half of the season.

MANCHESTER UNITED

When it comes to the Manchester United assets, it’s all about Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m). He’s shown a drastic improvement in his performance against the Kolarov and Lescott teams. He’s behind only Kane for performance against the Lescott teams and is as effective as Salah against Bramble opposition, which makes him a safe go to captaincy option against obliging defences. Marcus Rashford’s (£9.6m) numbers have reduced against good teams but he has seen a substantial improvement against poor teams. Such is Anthony Martial’s form (£8.8m) that his numbers have deteriorated across the board. 

THE OTHERS

The big story here is the Spurs assets. While I don’t have Son’s numbers from last season, Both him and Kane do incredibly well against all three kinds of opposition. 

The numbers for Kane and son against opposition of different category make sense to me as you’d expect Son to be more effective against Kolarov teams where they are expected to counter and you expect Kane to do better against Bramble opposition where you’d expect the opposition to sit deeper. 

Kane’s numbers have improved across the board from last season. Son is second only to Foden against good teams which is a good sign for those looking at him for De Bruyne replacements with the game against Liverpool incoming. Both players are best in class against Lescott teams which is the prime reason for fixture chasing with other premium assets simply hasn’t been as effective. Kane is a more reliable captain against more obliging teams. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s (£11.3m) numbers have dropped across the board and he simply hasn’t been in form this season. He does have the highest Non-Pen xG numbers in the league in the last four Gameweeks so things do look like they are changing. 

Historically, Auba is a good bet against weaker opposition but Arsenal’s fixtures don’t look very appealing in the mid-term. Vardy (who is also going to be out for a while) has done really well this season. He has increased his output against good opposition (hat trick vs Manchester City, goal and assist vs Spurs, assist vs Man United) and has been the most explosive asset amongst all the premium big hitters against obliging teams. 

He has a staggering 1.7 Goal + Assist/90 against such teams which is a shame because Leicester City had a good fixture run and he would have been a great asset to own in these fixtures based on his previous appearances.

Here is just a last look at these numbers for this season and three things stand out to me.

  1. The Spurs assets have good numbers across the board 
  2. Bruno, Vardy and Salah’s reliability against obliging teams could be key in the second half of the campaign.
  3. How these averages compare to last season

 That said it doesn’t take much time for the Fantasy landscape to change and I will be looking forward to doing a similar analysis at the end of this season.

Good luck to everyone preparing for Gameweek 20.

            It's better to play your own game other than all these template chasers.

            Not just players but when to play chips etc etc...

            Good luck for the business end of the season!

            It's a season of football. They're all different from others. Sometimes you're lucky at the start, but at all times you have to work hard for a good finish. Not sure I understand your sentiment with instinct. If something isn't going right, shouldn't you correct within 3 gw's rather than carry into bad fixtures?

      4. diesel001

        The season has, so far, been defined by the performances of Salah, Fernandes, Son, Kane, and Vardy vs Sterling, Mane, Rashford, KDB, and Aubameyang.

        The latter five have disappointed to date and so anyone who started with them or got onto them for a while will probably be struggling.

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          You could argue that KDB is the benchmark. Salah, Fernandes, Son, Kane and Vardy have been good versus the benchmark. Sterling, Rashford, Mane, Aubameyang, and Werner have been bad versus the benchmark.

          1. diesel001
            • 4 Years

            And not surprising that 4 of the 5 best performers are on penalties. Something to note for next season. Will we see as many penalties next season as we did this? There was a period where, quite frankly, the PL and the refs did not know how to interpret the rules and were handing out penalties left, right, and centre. Those days seem to be behind us.

              The penalty takers are likely to be given a price increase next season, bringing the non-pen takers back into the equation.

      5. Tonyawesome69 FHXX

        Play Soucek, Holding or Rodrigo or Kane (-4)?

          Looks great - not considering LEI? Depending on the FA results, you may want to have a look at SOU & LEE for their immediate DGW 23 (potentially)

            Leicester picks without Vardy look risky to me. And I think Southampton are going to win right now. Cheers mate!

          Had a look at Foden v Gundogan stats. They are very closely matched. Hardly anything in it over the course of the season but Gundogan has played around 200 minutes more.

          If you look at just the last 4 matches the minutes played is very similar (326 v 289). Gundogan carries a bigger goal threat (xG 1.83 v 1.22). Foden is more creative (xA 0.59 v 0.94). Considering the price difference and penalty factor Gundogan is well worth a punt.

              A challenge is good as much as being in the top 0.001% and the illustrious top 10k.

              Enjoyed reading, thanks. I also think a decent amount of matches have been hard to predict and results have been random, making captaincy really hard to nail this season

                Captain Kane is one answer!

                Or Son away or Bruno on the road or Vardy away when fit.

              I think you need to give better advice to the people you led astray at the start of the season, then continued to be obstinate when seeing their levels dive for half a season while following your then 'non-advice'

              People should play their own game - no such thing as an expert in fpl. Football is a beautiful game of ups and downs.

              Give us a rest LR

                There's really no need to be an ass about it. He didn't "lead" anyone astray. He is a more aggressive player than others and takes more risks. We've known that. To put yourself in the public eye while having a bad season and keep producing great content is not easy.

              What makes you use your wildcard at this stage?

                Was on a (-4) before the injury news about KDB and Vardy.

                And my team is in a bit of disarray, no City def etc.

              I would pick Pogba over Rashford for sure. Unfortunately I already own Rashford and its a waste of a transfer to make the swap right now

                Pogba certainly has the stats in recent games to suggest he's a better pick than Rashford. Do you think Rash was rested against Fulham to allow him to refocus?

            1. OleBall
                2 months, 23 days ago

                Just KDB imo

              Q. Is KDB price lockedfot a few weeks ubtil flag is removed?

              If so does it mean he can not drop in value until then?

              Hoping to keep him for a week or two to avoid taking a hit.

              Cheap I know

              Really hoping that grealish doesn't get a YC tonight so i can make the following moves as per A.

              Martinez
              Cancelo Stones Coufal Dallas Mitchell
              Salah Bruno Rashford KDB --- Burke
              Antonio Bamford Wilson

              A: Kdb >> Grealish....and next gw Taylor + Wilson >> Mitchell + Kane (-4). Rashford >> Son in gw23
              B: Kdb >> Sterling and next gw Rashford/Wilson >> Son/Watkins (-4)
              C: Something else

              So there's a chance Vardy is only out for a week... that's tempting and adds more uncertainty

                Brendan Rodgers on Jamie Vardy: "It’ll just depend on the recovery, he could be a week.

                "It’s not a major operation, it’s a minor one..."

                    Should be an Arse pen. That's why I stuck it up there.

                    1. Deulofail

                      Commentators saying the arm wasn't in an 'unexpected position', but it was bent up to the side to get in front of the opponent. If the ball hits that arm, it's your fault for using it to shield the opponent from the ball with your body (which in this case, includes your arm).

                      Commentatiors also saying his eyes were closed as a reason for it not being a pen. That's just ridiculous.

                      It's a hard pass from me. Needs FTs and money in the bank as a minimum. Preferably some ideas or insights from yourself as a courtesy.
