What has happened to Bruno Fernandes’s form in FPL?

There was a time, not so very long ago, when there was a man in everybody’s Fantasy Premier League (FPL) team and his name was Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m).

Technically speaking, he was in all the good ones – 99% owned amongst the top 1,000 teams by the end of February. FPL at large has never quite forgiven him for the mortal sin of not having a fixture in Gameweek 1 and his overall ownership only nudged a mite over 60% at the height of his popularity.

These days, he’s in 84% of top teams and 57% overall, but as everyone prepares for the final frantic weeks of FPL many owners have become jittery. For a long time, his mere appearance on a football field seemed a virtual guarantee of at least six points and often many more, but his modest returns in the last four Gameweeks have had managers wondering whether that £11.6m could be invested more usefully.

So what has happened to his form, why might it have happened, and is he still worth holding on to despite his recent run?

Fernandes exploded onto the Premier League scene in the second half of last season. Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) finished that campaign as the leading provider of FPL double-digit hauls with ten, but that took him 34 appearances at a rate of 29%. Fernandes managed six such scores in only fourteen matches at a rate of 43%, leading many to wonder if he could possibly repeat that this time around.

With six Gameweeks still to go, the Portuguese midfielder has already eclipsed De Bruyne’s marks from last year, amassing a league-leading 11 double-digit hauls at a rate of 37%. Only three other players have more than six such returns: Son Heung-min (£9.5m) with nine, Harry Kane (£11.8m) with eight and seven for Ilkay Gundogan (£5.8m). De Bruyne currently has six, Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) has five and Raheem Sterling (£11.2m) four.

Yet take a look at Bruno’s History on his FPL Transfer page and you quickly notice that in his last seven league appearances he has only one goal, a very early penalty at Manchester City, and one assist when he picked up a loose clearance against Brighton, drove to the edge of the box and fed Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) who swept it home. He was once superlative, but has he simply gone off the boil?

If you lay out Fernandes’s FPL double-digit hauls for this season and then note how many games there were in between them when he didn’t haul, it looks like this:

1 match, Haul (H), 1, H, 2, H, H, H, 3, H, H, 1, H, 4, H, 2, H, 1, H, 4.

Seven of Bruno’s 11 hauls came in the early part of the season. The last time he hauled in back-to-back games was in Gameweeks 14 and 15. Since then, each haul is isolated and they have generally become less frequent. If there is a point where a decline happened, Gameweek 16 would seem to be where it began.

Using the player statistics in the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, it’s easy to contrast Fernandes’s performance up to Gameweek 15 with his performance afterwards. That second period contained a few more matches, so it makes sense to use averages for the comparison rather than bare totals.

      So Stones has got to go this week, I've only got 10 to field this week so it'll have to be for a hit. I've got 6.1 to treat myself to a brand new defender and I'm looking towards Leicester (should I be?).
      What do you think of these as options?

      A. Pereira
      B. Castagne
      C. Fofana
      D. Someone else

      The rest of my backline is TAA, Dias, Shaw and Dallas

      1. Neo-Viper

            • 6 Years
            13 days, 9 hours ago

            Ricardo Fitness issue.
            Fofana just for the cleanie.

      2. ButterB

        Similar situation this week. Think you're right with Leicester, could also be one from Brighton for the SU game. Dunk a goal threat, only 5 yellows and guaranteed start.
        Pereira is one I'm thinking of too (rival has Fofana). He looks like he's a haul in him, but as you know this doesn't mean it's happening.

        1. buzzkill
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 9 hours ago

          Good points, thanks. Pereira is the most exciting option and I think you're right about him due a haul. Fitness is the only issue, I know he's out tonight but hoping that's just precautionary and he'll be back next game.
          Dunk is usually a solid pick, for the next 3 anyway. Of course if Castange/Fofana haul tonight that may sway my decision! I've got until tomorrow

        Hi, some transfer advice needed. I need to replace Stones/Gundo and Pope.

        Which transfers to do:
        A) Pope > Schmeichel/Patricio + Stones > Coady
        B) Pope > Schmeichel/Patricio + Gundo > Harrison / Raphina (change formation to 3-5-2 and play)
        C) Pope > Meslier (frees up cash for next week) + Stones > Azpi/Shaw/Coady/Maguire/Dunk
        D) Pope > Meslier + Gundo > Bowen

        Cheers.

            Bottomed on the last page,

            What do you think of the below moves for a -4?

            Mendy > schmeichel
            Neto > greenwood

            Leaves me with:
            Schmeichel
            TAA / coady / rudiger / holding
            Salah / jota / Greenwood / Fernandes
            Ihenacho / Davis

            Forster / masuaku / son / Kane

              I still think Lingard is a better pick than greenwood,

              Best KDB replacement?

              Anyone going without Salah? Not having him this week worked out well, but don't know if I have the balls to not have him for gw33...

                I wouldn't worry. Newcastle are looking good at present.

                Caved today and dubious about it. Unconvinced by him still. Could have got this midline instead which has loads of oomph after all.

                Bruno Lingz Jota Maddison Greenwood

                Aim to get its equivalent next week but with Son/Bale + Mo replacing Bruno + Maddison/Greenwood.

                  Although they have a tough match next, Leeds have good fixtures coming up, so if you plan on keeping the replacement, you could consider Raph.

                        Ah didn't realise he had a yellow flag. If not, maybe Harrison.

                          I like the raph pick, still flagged and didnt play the last game so need to wait on tomorrows press conf. hes the most exciting replacement imo

                        i'd look at weakening your bench then, is there a specific reason for Martinez and Johnson or going for Wood over a Brewster/Davis fodder?

                          Good call. who would you get Wood for ? Throughout the entire season have played 3 upfront.
                          But i am open to your say.

                            Id do Wood to Bamford and Raphina to fodder, Smith-Rowe. Johnstone to a 4m keeper. gives you some money in the bank for flexability and can play a 343

                      cheers.I think that Mendy will start.Also i want a gk until the end of the season and i don't think there is anyone i like.Maybe Henderson but is he nailed?

                  Reasonable to say the wildcard/triple captain have worked wonders - 233k to 85k in 2 weeks. Free hit remaining. I have 2 FTs and nowt in the bank. What should I prioritise?

                  Mendy / Forster
                  TAA / Coady / Holding / Lowton / Rudiger
                  Fernandes / Lingard / Jota / Salah / Son*
                  Iheanacho / Davis* / Kane*

                  Without changes I'm locked into a less-than-ideal 4-5-1, and concerned about having no keeper if Mendy doesn't start again.

                  Wondering if Son > Greenwood and Forster > Johnstone is worth it (could always get Son back next week for Bruno if he is still misfiring).

                    Sounds good, however I think you could get away with a 5-4-1

                    I'd just do Mendy to whoever and roll the other transfers to attack the doubles (once announced)

                    I would do that. I think you can go without Son.

                  Is there functionality in the members area to see what a particular players record is against a certain side?

                  If not where is the best place to take a look for this elsewhere?

                        Thanks mate, not quite as juicy as I had hoped. Playing FH and need some differentials in to close up a 40 point gap.

                        Where is the armband going for you this week?

                          Nacho

                          Had been considering bringing Mane on basis good TAA means better Mane but decided that was an overthink too far so settled on compromise of Mo in but captain Nacho as my move this week

                          Palace away form worse than Newcastle and Liverpool home form stinks of course

                            On FH im thinking Salah Mane TAA triple. Armband on Kelechi too! Palace away form is rotten. Good luck.

                              Oh on FH I'd be really interested in giving Mane a whirl.

                              The option I see there is to go all 2019 and get Robbo TAA instead. But would prefer double mids on balance.

                    Think you can do this anyway sort of

                    Don't you just need to click on just one side in the player stats? Unselect all and then pick the one team you're interested in. You'd need to alter the years to get the historical record I guess.

                    Wonder how long the Super 6 are going to remain the default flat track bully option 🙂

                  2 FTs. Stones & Mahrez out?

                  Mendy / Forster

                  Salah / Bruno / Mahrez / Jota / Lingz

                      Makes it 4 Liverpool - but ideally this is what I want. Phillips in a -4 would be tough.

                    I need to replace Stones/Gundo and Pope.

                    Which transfers to do:
                    A) Pope > Schmeichel/Patricio + Stones > Coady
                    B) Pope > Schmeichel/Patricio + Gundo > Harrison / Raphina
                    C) Pope > Meslier (frees up cash for next GW) + Stones > Azpi/Shaw/Coady/Maguire/Dunk
                    D) Pope > Meslier + Gundo > Bowen

                    Cheers.

                      Why are people panicking over Mendy? He is still Chelsea's no.1 and will start at the weekend. No doubt about it, Tuchel made this clear long ago, and just gave Kepa another match to keep him 'happy'.

                      Areola*, Gundogan*, Dias*, Kane*

                      Cresswell to Veltman/Holding? If Lingard not fit what else. Gundogan out or Dias?

                        Lingard is not flagged after coming off against Newcastle. Have you seen news on him not being fit? I would bin Cresswell, WHU leaking goals. Dias out ahead of Gundo - also leaking goals.

                          Thanks. Not seen anything on Lingard but didn’t look great end of last match. Hopefully OK. Cresswell to Veltman? Good game this and GW36 match

                            Yeah like that since you already have a Leeds defender in your side.

                              Thanks. Might go for Nat Phillips if fit as great value and fixtures

                      Help needed. Been dropping in rank like crazy:

                      Martinez
                      Azpi Konsa Holding Stones* Andersen*
                      Salah Bruno Lingard
                      Ihenacho Antonio*
                      B: Forster* Kane* Son* Gundo*
                      1 FT 0.7itb
                      Pretty sure going to do Stones to Periera/Casta

                      What else for a hit:
                      1. Andersen to phillips (if fit) or Veltman
                      2. Gundo to periera
                      3. Antonio to Bam

                        You're team is not that different from everyone else, so maybe wrong captain choices is the ain reason for rank drop? Also, those with Brighton or Wolves defense have been gaining ground. But like myself your defense is in tatters, so Stones to Pereira/Casta, or Stones + Antonio -> TAA + cheap striker for a hit

                        Similar to me. Would get rid of Stones for Castange. You reminded me of Phillips if he is fit he is great value, if not I’m going Veltman but I wouldn’t take a hit for that move I’d do B to get an extra player.

                          Bruno has been the back bone of your downfall.... but Antonio to bam is not an option maybe to Watkins, and Gundo? no brainier. while veltman who plays as attacking midfielder and Right midfield is clearly a hidden gem .

                          No.

                            Reason?

                              leeds def has improved over recent weeks, someone like Nacho, Jota, Trent or Vardy might be a better differential cap

                              Form isn't great but Greenwood's and Cavani's is.

                              Bruno or Pogba also able to eat some of his attacking points.

                        1. Stones + Phillips + Mahrez --> TAA + Veltman/Alioski + Saka (-4)
                        2. Phillips + Mahrez --> TAA + ESM

                        Have Salah + Jota, so cannot just bin Stones & Mahrez and bring TAA in.

                            Thanks. Is ESM nailed though?
