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.

    Cup opponent TC and is on 97 I didn’t use chip and have 103 and tonight he has Wilson and Watkins and I have Martinez.

    Am I out?

    1. Adetro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Tight. Maybe 50/50.

      1. Champions League Varane
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Defo need a 0-0

        1. Adetro
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          You defo need a Villa clean sheet. If Villa are to concede and Martinez is limited to 2 points, I'd favour your opponent.

    2. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I reckon you’re through

      1. Champions League Varane
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Hope so

    3. Shark Team
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      It's a 2-0 Villa win. If Watkins doesn't participates in both goals then you are qualified (and I think you will)

    4. ‘Tis the Season
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Watkins should
      Score meaning Martinez blanks and you out the cup. Not much hope

      1. Champions League Varane
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah just like Liverpool have no hope of winning a trophy this season! Oh well Tis The Season you finally get found out and we win it all 😉

    5. Sid1891
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Yes looks like it

    6. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I was about to say you're probably out but this looks right because of the 6 point lead you have.

    7. Shark Team
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I was right in that one

  2. toonstar

    Pick one of these two defenders and one of these two midfielders?

    A) Matty Cash
    B) Luke Shaw

    C) Anwar El Ghazi
    D) Phil Foden

    1. Adetro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      BC

    2. JohnBlack

      BD

    3. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Shaw 60/40

      Foden 100/0

    4. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      A, D

    5. toonstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      cheers all

    6. Releasebreaks
      • 3 Years

      BD

  3. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Who scores more in the next 3gws?
    A) Cancelo -4
    B) Gundogan

    1. Adetro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      City have conceded 2 goals in their last 10 matches. Gundogan is on a rare hot streak. It depends on the rest of your team.

    2. Releasebreaks
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      B

  4. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Best KDB replacement for 7.8m? So many options!...

    A) Gundogan
    B) Foden
    C) Grealish
    D) Pogba
    E) Rodriguez
    F) Maddison
    G) Barnes
    H) Zaha

    Sterling, Son, Bruno, xxx
    Bamford, Wilson*, Watkins

    * will be Kane next week

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Any confirmation in YC threshold for Villa?
      Has Grealish got to get through next 3 without a booking?

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Pretty sure he has to get to 19 games, they've played 16

      2. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        AVL play their 19th fixture in Gameweek 21, so a fifth Grealish booking before Gameweek 22 would still trigger a one-match suspension.

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Maybe a punt on Zaha? Tasty fixtures

      1. Kun Tozser
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Is he back yet?

      2. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Yes, if he is available.

    3. umerlfc
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I'd go Barnes if I were you since Leicester's fixtures are great, but Foden is tempting if you're a manager that likes to have fun. Gundo more safe though

  5. Zambian FPL Addict

          Does the cup not count ? He just says 5 games in a row. Didn't he score vs Villa. If had said 5 prem games it makes it more intresting

            Just kidding LR 😉

  6. HuttonDressedasLahm
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Safe to buy Maguire?
    Utd played 19 now so no threat from 5 yellows?

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Just be prepared to watch him miss chance after chance, game after game, from corners

  7. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Those without wildcard.

    Are you using transfers by focusing dgw26 players or just use fh in dgw26?

    1. Adetro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Is there that useful spreadsheet that shows % odds of DGW matches?

    2. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Prob will FH

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Undecided until seeing the schedule. If too many hits required then FH.

  8. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Who wins this H2H:
    A. 10 points
    B. Mings + Wilson

    1. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      A

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      A.
      B unfortunately is against each other so no big gain

    3. Jonny HOW SON?
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Probably A.

      If Wilson scores, no CS for Mings.
      If Mings gets CS, no points for Wilson.
      Only way B wins is if both score, but that won't happen.
      Also in worst case no CS for Mings and Wilson doesn't score too.

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Hope my 10 pt lead is enough.

    5. djman102
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Only way B wins is multiple goals for Wilson or max bonus for either one.

  9. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Pretty set on kdb - son.
    Any of these worth a - 4?
    A) raphina to gundo
    B) raphina to grealish
    C) ctaylor to stones

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      A could be nice. B might be banned if he gets a yellow tonight. C is also a nice move.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Cheers rafa

    2. Fodderx4
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      c is a good long term move

  10. Better luck next year

    Current team for GW20

    Martinez
    Stones Dias Reguilon
    Salah KDB* Salah Soucek
    Antonio Wilson Bamford

    4.0 Podence* Mitchell Saiss

    What would you do here?

    A) Only KDB > Rashford/Grealish/Gundo for free?
    B) KDB + Podence > 2 of 3 of the ones above for -4 and play both of them?

    1. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 19 days ago

      A (I've gone Gundo but all good options)

  11. Athletico Underachieving
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Mart,
    Cancelo, stones, couf, Dallas, targett
    Bruno, son, soucek, gundo, madders
    Watkins, Kane, Wilson

    Having ridden my luck without Salah since ‘pool home draw against WBA, the KDB injury opens the door for him again.

    Wilson - Brew, then Sou - Salah?Worth it or look at upgrading Wilson and soucek e.g. to DCL and Grealish?

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Nope
      I’m looking to sell him.
      Cheeky punt on Zaha?

      1. Athletico Underachieving

        Tbh that’s the way I’m swaying but need vindication as it feels risky!

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Starting to think KDB >> Sterling. Madness right?

    McCarthy
    Robbo, Dias, Coufal
    Salah, Bruno, KDB*, Raphina
    Antonio, Bamford, DCL
    (Johnstone, Lowton, Soucek, Dallas)

    1. Jonny HOW SON?
      • 6 Years

      Not even 1 Spurs guy?
      Big mistake that...

    2. Champions League Varane
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I’m going with that I think

    3. Fodderx4
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      It could definitely work although i wouldn't after bringing him in on my free hit in 18!

  13. Fodderx4

    1. Adetro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      If you do B, who do you bench for Gundogan?

      1. Fodderx4
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Probabaly James so guess it's not worth a hit.

    2. RedAlpha10
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Would be tempted to start Soucek, Palace very weak on set pieces could be one last haul before you sell him, maybe wait to see if gundogan plays deeper with kdb out, we dont know how it will affect him as of yet

  14. Adetro

    How long after eating bangers, mash and gravy do you need to wait before jumping up and down on a trampoline?

  18. Totti
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    What to do with that lot?

    Martinez forster
    Stones bednarek holding coufal taylor
    Salah son bruno grealish burki
    Vardy bamford antonio

    1.9 itb 1 FT

    A) vardy -> kane or ings or cavani
    B) vardy -> ings/cavani and taylor -> dias (-4)
    C) other suggestion

    1. Fodderx4
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      a) for me is safest
      b) with cavani if your feeling punty or ings if less punty

      1. Totti
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        A with kane?

  19. Danno - Emre Canada
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Class finish by Mbappe last night, made it look so easy, not many players would have been able to do that so quickly and composed. Would love to see him in the Prem

    1. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Him or Haaland needed for Man City as an Aguero replacement.

      1. Danno - Emre Canada
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        That would be decent eh, KDB slotting it in for Mbappe

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Can Mbappe move again though unless it’s for crazy crazy money?

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Real have been saving their pocket money for him for a couple of years.

  20. chelseabrad
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Anyone taking Salah out?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Might put him in.

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      He ll be my transfer in this week. Liverpool will revert to mean soon. The past 4 games won't be the next 19

  21. Danno - Emre Canada
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    If you had to.....Shaw, AWB, Maguire or James? Ta

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Shaw is cheapest, Maguire is most nailed & has aerial threat.

  22. AlpoShearer
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    A. Kdb to Gundo and Son/Kane gw 21?
    B. Kdb to Son?

  23. Wigflex
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    A - Robbo to Maguire/shaw
    B - Vardy to Kane -4
    C - Adams to Antonio

    Team is: 0.5itb 1ft

    Martinez
    Cancelo - Stones - Coufal - Robertson
    Son - Bruno - Salah - Soucek - Raphina
    Bamford

    (Forster - Adams - Dallas - Vardy)

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I am looking at A, Maguire is more cash but 100% nailed, Shaw should have the position at 4.8.
      Who are you thinking, other defence players?

    2. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Justin not an option? That's where I'd go.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Good shout.

      2. Wigflex
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Yeh I've been thinking Justin, that might be the route I go actually, thank you

  24. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Which 2 City on WC? Sterling is the 3rd one.

    A. Gundogan
    B. Cancelo
    C. Stones

    1. AlpoShearer
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      B,C

    2. MYTWOCENTS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I think if you are set on Sterling then the two defenders

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      BC

    4. chelseabrad
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      A and B

    5. puhd
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Dias?

    6. Nikolai Volkoff
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Double City def looks the way to go and Dias + Stones are most nailed. Prefer Gundog to Sterling

  25. chelseabrad
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Who will be on City pens?

    1. MYTWOCENTS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Hopefully Gundogan

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Gundo,
      Sterling
      Ederson
      Foden

    3. Sedemuda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Gundo. No chance Sterling gets another, Jesus maybe if the game's not tight for confidence.

  26. RUUD!
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    When does 5 yellow rule become 10?

    1. MYTWOCENTS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Once the team has played 19 games. So most teams are there already but villa still have 3 to play

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      After 19 games

  27. cigan
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    For everyone who has both KDB & Vardy, what's your plan?

    I'm deffo taking KDB out but not sure whether I should take a hit for Vardy > Kane as well or just play Saka this week (and get Kane for free next round)

    Liverpool, for all their troubles, still look decent at the back + Arsenal will have a point to prove after today's cup defeat

  28. SomeoneKnows
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Can someone please explain the implications of Southampton's win over Arsenal?

    Does this mean no DGW for them? Which games will need rescheduling? Etc...

    1. MYTWOCENTS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I think it just rules out it being arranged in gw23 it will probably come in later now

  29. DIMITRIS
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    What's the best option out of these :
    A) KDB to Son for FT
    B) KDB and Che Adams OUT for Grealish and Vardy IN ( -4 hit)
    C) KDB to Mane for FT
    D) KDB and Bowen OUT for Salah and Gundo IN (-4 hit)

    1. cigan
      • 3 Years

      easy A

    2. Kun Tozser
      • 6 Years

  30. The Mighty Hippo
