Pro Pundits - Simon

When should Fantasy managers trust the stats or go with their gut?

Former Fantasy Premier League winner Simon March discusses one of the game’s age-old debates in his latest column…


Within the Fantasy Premier League community, the decisions we make and our reasons for making them represent an endless source of debate.

Yet one inarguable justification does exist, one that simply cannot provoke any other response than immediate, unqualified acceptance, perhaps even with a touch of admiration too. That justification? “I’ve just got a feeling about it.”

That such reasoning is so ubiquitous and so widely accepted does raise a couple of questions. Firstly why, in a game so overflowing with data, are we so ready to follow our feelings when making decisions and, secondly, is deferring to them a good or a bad idea? Addressing these questions will be the focus of this week’s article.

Why We Go With Our Gut

Injury updates on Gundogan, KDB and other Double Gameweek 25 team news

There’s an undeniable romanticism about going with your gut. Perhaps it is the sincerity that comes with making a decision entirely on your own terms, or maybe it’s the brave willingness to trust in forces that are not quite visible to us. Just as Obi-Wan Kenobi’s advice to Luke Skywalker in Star Wars to “Trust your feelings” played a vital role in the latter’s heroic journey, there is nothing more valorous in FPL than to make a choice based entirely on instinct.

However, following a feeling is not necessarily an irrational thing to do. Indeed, there is an evolutionary root to our tendency to do it. We develop these feelings as a shorthand method of processing large amounts of information quickly. In the early days of man, this method was a vital means of quickly identifying survival threats and, as the world became more complex, it also became an important way of making sense of our ever-changing environments.

Gut instinct also has a place in the modern world. It is the reason you hear stories of veteran firefighters saving their teams because they ‘just knew’ that the burning building was about to collapse and everybody needed to get out. You see it constantly on the football field too. Players often, in a split second, make a decision that pundits spend hours, days or sometimes decades trying to explain. Think Pele’s pass for Carlos Alberto’s goal in the 1970 World Cup Final or Olivier Giroud’s Puskas-winning scorpion-kick against Crystal Palace in 2017. These were not consciously-deliberated acts but, rather, they were glorious moments of human instinct incarnate.

Often, in such situations, the individuals in question cannot verbalise how they knew to do what they did, they just did it. Some refer to this as a sixth sense but, in reality, it is likely to be the manifestation of a person receiving enough exposure to certain situational or environmental factors that they no longer had to consciously process the information, their subconscious did it for them.

By this rationale, not only should we be able to trust our feelings when making decisions as Fantasy managers but the quality of those feelings as decision-making tools should increase the more experience we have of playing the game. I’ve no doubt that after a decade or so of playing FPL, I have better instincts than when I first started playing the game, forged, as they have been, in the flames of Shane Duffy Double Gameweek captaincy fails and benched Harry Kane hauls. I’ve seen enough shaky bandwagons in my time to no longer get sucked into them as often as I might have and, equally, there are times where I just know if a player is going to do well or not and I turn out to be right. Am I a better player for all of this experience though? That is definitely debatable.

The Dangers of Following your FPL Feelings 

Unfortunately, there are two sides to developing FPL instincts via experience. Just as we learn to avoid certain mistakes, we become prone to making new ones through the same psychological mechanism. Often, our subconscious decisions are driven by whatever we can draw on as our most easily-accessible comparable example. As a result, we put (sometimes too much) faith in a player because we recall them once scoring a hat-trick or because they remind us of another player who did well in similar circumstances. Over time, we build up these reference points against which we make our decisions, many of which will be unreliable. As a result, we sometimes make worse decisions the more experience we get.

For example, an FPL manager who did not experience or benefit from Michu, Swansea’s budget midfield goal-scoring phenomenon who exploded onto the FPL scene in 2012, will probably be less likely to take a chance on a similarly unproven asset than those of us with fond memories of the Michu era. As we’ve seen, particularly this season, trusting unproven assets (at least from the start) is a risky move that probably fails more often than it pays off.

We might also miss opportunities by allowing our decisions to be driven by our most easily-recalled comparisons. For example, after a superb goal-scoring start to this season by Leeds’ Patrick Bamford, many of us would have been drawing mental parallels with Norwich’s Teemu Pukki last season who, like Bamford, also played for a newly-promoted team and also started out banging in the goals like goals were about to be banned, but dropped off considerably after about a dozen matches. Many of us will have avoided Bamford for that exact reason or transferred him out as soon as a similar decline looked like a possibility. Instead, Bamford has continued to score fairly consistently all season so far. Thus, while the comparison to Pukki was easy to make, it was not ultimately an accurate one.

Bamford and Raphinha star in audition for Double Gameweek 25 2

Experience, therefore, is a double-edged sword. It has the potential to allow us to develop the equivalent of an FPL ‘spider-sense’ yet, at the same time, it can cause us to become too rigid, unadaptive and stuck in our ways, perhaps causing us to believe that what we’ve seen is actually all there is to see, or cause us to be too sceptical about the viability of emerging opportunities. 

How Can FPL Managers Learn to Trust Their Better Instincts?

So how can FPL managers learn to trust our good instincts and ignore our bad ones? Should we be acting on instinct at all? The key, perhaps, is to recognise what’s going on below the surface and that, just because you have a strong feeling about something, it isn’t necessarily a valid reason to go with it. While instinct and experience can, undeniably, be valuable assets for an FPL manager, these kinds of decision-making mechanisms were, perhaps, not designed to resolve complex decisions of this type, at least not on their own.

In such moments, it is important to question the source of that feeling and how reliable it is as an indicator of what might happen in the future. Instinct may help you see opportunities that other managers don’t, or avoid the traps that others will fall into, but it may also create such traps if followed without sufficient interrogation. This is why it is important to sense-check decisions with some form of objective data or a second-opinion. If you have a feeling about a player, have a look to see if the statistics back it up or how the idea plays with other managers. For all the tools now available to FPL managers to aid in their decision-making, the FPL community is still arguably the most effective resource there is for refining our ideas.

To Dare is To Do

It may also be important to acknowledge also that, while experience can be valuable for an FPL manager, it will likely be less important than adaptability. No two seasons are ever the same and recognising this fact, and recognising it quickly, will often be crucial to success.

What weighting you give to any of the sources of information you draw on will always be up to you, nobody should ever follow a source blindly. But, unless you are some sort of FPL savant, entirely independent or esoteric decision-making will likely end up serving your rivals more often than it serves you. In the arena of going with your gut, this kind of sense-checking process is the high-fibre diet or the probiotic supplement that allows you to trust your gut with greater confidence and to help avoid it doing something bloated, messy and embarrassing.

    Dier or Targett?

      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I have the same dilemma
      I'm going for targett. I don't really trust the Spurs backline.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Targett offers far more going forwards too and is less prone to rotation.

        1. chonks
          • 6 Years

          targett

        I don't really like One Football. I wanted to, but it doesn't refresh easily and it feels a bit bloated.

        Livescore all the way. It's simple and it does what it's intended.

      Nobody heard of Flashscore? Tried all the above and is by far the simplest and most useful IMO

      I use fotmob. Always been great.

    Anyone going KDB TC?

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Nah too risky.

    2. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Na, think I’m captaining though

    3. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Big risk. If I could this week Id seriously look at DCL

  6. chonks
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    BB this or can I do better down the road or place tc this week?

    Sanchez (WBA) Bamford (Villa) Raphina (Villa) Mee (spurs lei)

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Probably would tbh.... you can squeeze 15-20 out of that I think. Much depends on Brighton keeping it clean v wba. Then also allows you to dead end the bench

    2. citizenkane
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Was all set to BB this week but TC this week and BB30 is luring me. Leeds have SHU that week

      1. chonks
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        thanks for both comments

  7. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Is this defence too risky(Not to play both) on FH??

    Ederson
    Digne Pereira/Castagne Reguilon Stones

  8. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Ok so I need to move tonight...which gets your vote? Quite tempted with C) and to TC this week!

    A) Ings -> DCL
    B) Ings/Sterling -> Son/Kane (-4)
    C) B) + Tark -> Stones (-8)

    A) edges me towards a FH29

    POPE
    CANCELO, TARGETT, TARKOWSKI
    SALAH, BRUNO, STERLING, GUNDOGAN
    WATKINS, Bamford, Ings

    Forster, Raphina, Mitchell, Coufal
    Bank 0.7m, 1FT, all chips left

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      B

  9. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Working towards BGW, which is a better combo over GW28 & GW29?

    A) Grealish & Kane (assuming Grealish is fit)
    B) Aubameyang & Watkins

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      A easily

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      A

  10. vova
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Dias or Cancelo on a WC?

    1. zotter
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Dias. Especially now league wrapped up

      1. vova
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        thanks, going Dias/Emerson for City defence

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Dias is the most nailed Id say out of the defenders.

  11. Milkman Bruno
      1 month, 17 days ago

      What to do with Cavani?

      A) sell for a hit for a striker up to 8m (have Dcl)
      B) play as he could get one game
      C) play Ings

      1. zotter
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        A Watkins probably. Given the number of games he has

      2. Corgzzzz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Funny how quick this game moves on. Less than 2 weeks ago Cavani was the must have player, now nobody wants him.....

        1. Milkman Bruno
            1 month, 17 days ago

            He is injured

      3. greggles
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Got a -8 planned but really anxious a price rise/fall is going to lock me out...

        Bednarek > Targett
        Saka > Lookman
        Antonio > Kane

        Any chance?

        1. zotter
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Not ideal but worst case you can go Konsa instead of Targett if prices move

          1. greggles
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Good point!

      4. Dele
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        G2G? On a -8... triple captain locked!

        Martinez
        Cancelo, Dias, Targett, Aina
        Salah, Bruno, Gundo, Son
        DCL, Kane(TC)

        Forster, Raph, Bamford, Dallas

        1. zotter
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Sure you wanna play Aina over the Leeds forwards? Rest tip top

        2. greggles
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Any BB left?

          1. Dele
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            I wasted BB on Leeds last time haha

        Hi all
        Im wondering if its wise to Play a wild card or triple capt? (Still have BB but not good for this round as single gameweek players)
        Im leaning wild card to stack all my players but maybe I must keep for a bench boost later? Just I dont have Spurs or Everton players at all with current team

        Thanks

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years

          WC

        2. zotter
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          There is nothing wrong with BB with single GW players. If you are totally stacked on 15 DGW players gives you a problem further down the line. Also what chance is there you’re gonna get 15 DGW players later in season??

        Thoughts on this FH Team?

        Ederson
        Digne Pereira Reguilon ***
        Salah Son ****
        Kane Vardy DCL

        Pick one
        A Dias AMN/Targett
        B Stones/Semedo B.Traore
        C Cancelo M.Pereira

      7. hullcityfan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Newcastle v Wolves may be the most irrelevant game to FPL all season.

      8. Fergymac
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Digne or Pereira

        1. zotter
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Close. Either are good options with good fixtures. Maybe Digne with an extra double swings it

        2. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Pereira. Possibly playing RW , still a decent attacking pick if he's RB.

        3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Pereira

        4. Over Midwicket
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

        5. Garlicbread
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Pereira has huge upside due to low ownership but getting back to fitness and might have reduced minutes. Digne more nailed. Tough one.

      9. citizenkane

        1 month, 17 days ago

        Chances of Burnley pulling off a miraculous CS against either TOT or LEI?
        Wondering if I should BB with Pope and Lowton.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Do it.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Burnley will keep Leicester out for the CS. No chance them getting caught on the counter.............can see them winning this game, as they have a strong home record.

        Who is a better bet to start

        A) Bamford who also has pens
        B) Raphinha who is in very good form

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          So tough. I would start Raphinha.

          B. Form.

        • 4 Years

        Better time to play FH:

        A) GW29
        B) GW33

        1. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Team dependent. For me its 29.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            I might be able to get 8 on the pitch for 29.

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          33 imo

          Leicester and Liverpool (?) look prime and the Man U Leeds game could be a humdinger. Good opportunity to bring in some one off premiums over City and Spurs if you have played through 29.

          GW29. Team dependent for me, but having to concentrate on navigating 29 with FTs negates the opportunity to exploit the doubles in 26, 27 and 28 (or wherever Villa v Everton falls).

            I can get the following with just FTs:

            26: 12 DGWers and 3 SGWers with BB
            27: 3 DGWers
            28(If): 2 DGWers
            29: 8 starters

        Thoughts on Alisson likely absence and the affect on pool assets..

          A) Already poor defense at mo weaker still.
          B ) They have to fight for Europe place and can't afford to lose games anymore.

          Therefore they have to go all out to score heavily to win games.

            In ability to attack because they are so fragile in defence whilst lacking the likes of henderson to transition the ball quickly to attack

            Honestly not looking good and makes me want to drop Salah

                Can see your point, I have Salah too, he's trashed me so many times after dropping him I'm a season keeper with him. Maybe Shaq will finally get minutes in midfield - he was good once before never getting opportunities.
                Hey, miracles happen - passes between Mane and Mo might help..!!

        Fantastic article.

        I for one am certainly one who goes with my gut probably too often. It can pay off really well ( top 20 overall one season thanks to my instinct to invest in Wigan!) but has also failed badly (stubbornly refusing to join Salah ownership club!) I do think you need to step outside the templates and bandwagons sometimes and go with your own gut if you really want those top ranks tho.

            That is true! Very satisfying when the punt pays off... Had plenty of 'what was I thinking' moments too tho!

        Anyone thought about Pickford or Lloris for this week?

          Depends who you have. Either could be a reasonable choice...

        What an excellent article. Beautifully explaining how instinct and unconscious competence relate back to logic.

        Hoping my guy decision to wildcard earlier this week will prove to be genius.

        Anyone think Traore for villa worth a punt?

          Would rather Watkins for a similar price.

          Checked his stats but considering Lookman now if Madison is out, seems likely. He'll play in BGW29.

        Which move is best to fund Antonio to Kane?

        A: Son to Pereira

        B: Salah to Barnes

        C: DCL to Brewster (and play Raphinha)

        1. GreennRed

          A.

        What’s your team value this year?

          108.2

          I stopped caring a few weeks ago waiting for fixture announcements and team news. 106.8m.

            This. Every year good value players come through. This season Gundo and Bamford and Dallas have defined why high TV hasn't been advantageous.

        3. Silecro

          You could genuinely make top 10k OR this year with 85-90 mil of starting budget, without ever getting to the triple digits TV

          I can honestly say I never play this game and look at my team value. I play my transfers as late as possible and try to find value elsewhere if I have to

          And just checked... 103.8 - very low but sat at 12k overall...

        I have already took a -4. Is it worth doing another-4 swapping Lowton to digne?

          Digne has 3 good games out of 4, he could get you 4ppg. Unless he gets injured this could pay off.
          I do think each hit has to be seen separately.

        BB team -

        Ederson
        Pereira - Stones - Shaw
        Bruno - Son - Gundogan - Barnes
        Kane - DCL - Watkins

        Lloris - Raphinha - Holgate - El Mohamady

        Thoughts? 🙂
