Eliteserien Runde 7 Hot Chip

Let’s get right down to business – I’m playing Rich Uncle in DGW7 for the simple fact that the three best teams all play twice and on paper have very winnable fixtures. I’m more concerned about goals than clean sheets this week and outside the template options I think there are some players not many people are talking about who could potentially boost my rank.

I’m deciding to let the stats guide me more this season and because of that I’m not looking at this Rich Uncle team to protect me against others (in relation EO) – I’m looking to hit it out the park, regardless of who else everyone goes for. 

My team isn’t complete, but I’m fairly set on 8 or 9 of my 11 players. That being said, let’s jump into the analysis and see what the results say:

(I’m not including values this week, rather illustrating ownership % as RU is the focus of this article)
(FP = Fantasy Points excluding BFP)
(/90 = Total minutes/90 e.g. 389 minutes = 4.32 games. Even if the 389 minutes were spread over 5 games, the player’s /90 value will be 4.32)

GOALKEEPER

XI:

  • Anders Kristiansen (2.0%) – Sarpsborg won’t concede many this week and might even grab a clean sheet against Brann. Kristiansen offers save points as well as clean sheet potential and allows me to load up on Glimt, Vålerenga and Molde players in other positions

Bench:

  • Sondre Rossbach (7.9%) – I don’t have the space for Kristoffer Klaesson (24.2%) and I don’t want Viljar Myhra (12.8%) so the Odd goalkeeper was the only other DGW goalkeeper to choose from. Plus, he’s quite good and while clean sheets will be unlikely, this is the Eliteserien where results have a tendency to never quite go the way they are expected to do so… 

Others:

  • Nikita Khaykin (6.8%) & Andreas Linde (15.6%) – both good keepers playing for good sides. If you aren’t fielding three Glimt players already, then Khaykin could be a good choice. The same can be said about Linde, though I think Molde are quite likely to concede in both games. That is of course just my opinion!

SGW Option:

  • Sean McDermott (15.5) –Has made more saves and won more points than any other goalkeeper and faces an Odd side that simply don’t look like scoring. He’s a great option that will more than likely go under the radar due to the nature of this Runde. The temptation is incredibly high to go with him, but I think Kristiansen edges him due to playing an extra game

DEFENCE

The above table lists relevant KPIs, illustrating the relative effectiveness of both obvious and less obvious choices for this DGW have been so far. The dataset is potentially skewed due to varying numbers of games played, but we can still derive enough worth to be able to identify some standout options:

XI:

  • Christian Dahle Borchgrevink (44.3%) – look at all that green. He’s dominating every metric as well being on corners, throw-ins and is winning fouls for fun. The Vålerenga right-back has been the best attacking defender in the league so far and he’s a very easy pick on RU
  • Alfons Sampsted (14.4%) – FP/90 is beaten only by Kristoffer Haugen and has played 5 key passes – one fewer than Borchgrevink. His edge over Fredrik André Bjørkan lies in his corner duties and affinity towards crossing the ball/trying a long pass. Bjørkan is a much better dribbler than anyone else but what have those dribbles amounted to? Both are decent options for this week, though I think Sampsted offers more in general, is largely overlooked and has been producing enough for us to consider him replacing Bjørkan in general and not just for this DGW
  • Lars-Christopher Vilsvik (1.8%) – I’ve recommended him before and I’ll recommend him again – he’s a good player and despite being in a defensively suspect Strømsgodset side, he is my third and final playing defender for this Runde. His FP/90 is low but that hasn’t stopped him from playing more accurate crosses than Borchgrevink (7-6) or having the third highest xA value (0.84). They do face league-leaders Rosenborg, but the last time they kept a clean sheet was in Runde 2, conceding 10 goals since that time. We’ve already discussed how Strømsgodset have looked good attacking-wise, and the data does speak to a return or two coming Vilsvik’s way sooner or later

Bench:

  • Joachim Thomassen (2.9%) – If I could have Jonatan Tollås Nation (16.5%) I would, but I already have three Vålerenga players for this week and despite his good run of form he just misses out. Thomassen plays out wide for Sarpsborg and despite his age (33) he’s still capable of putting in a good shift week in, week out. His combined xG and xA value comes in at 0.73 which is actually higher than Sampsted. Sarpsborg are a team that are tough to break down and outside of the top four clubs in the division, have the best defence 
  • Kristoffer Haugen (4.2%) – If he plays, I’m expecting him to score. That’s where I am right now. I’m not looking at the Molde defender to provide a lot of support and whip some nice balls into the box – I want him to get the ball and shoot. It’s that simple. My main reservation with him is I’m not too sure he plays both games and Molde really did not look comfortable against Sandefjord last season, and they come into this hectic week of football on the back of a defeat and a draw in their last two. Don’t get me wrong – I see Molde taking away at least 4pts from these games, but there’s a potential banana skin there and that combined with Haugen’s potential to play just one game makes me view him more as a backup asset rather than primary

Others:

  • Magnar Ødegaard (2.6%) – Never going to set the world alight but probably the second best Sarpsborg defender to go for and will play a decent long ball or two. He gets on the ball more than Thomassen and is part of a solid defence.
  • Sam Adekugbe (5.5%) & Jonatan Tollås Nation – If was going to play two Vålerenga defenders I’d go for Borchgrevink and Tollås Nation, but Adekugbe has posted decent enough stats for us to talk about him. He’s been unlucky not to register an assist yet and only Bjørkan has played more accurate passes in the opposition half/90 (27 – 31.17)

SGW Option:

  • Sturla Ottesen (2.5%) – He’s having a good season isn’t he? Yaw Amankwah looks likely to miss Stabæk’s Monday evening tie with Tromsø so barring anything particularly unusual, Ottesen will start yet again. He’s in good form and I really do think Stabæk have an exciting player on their hands. Tromsø regrettably look like they’re going to concede a couple of goals every time they play, and while the home side may not score too many, they’re a compact unit who should find it easy enough to see off the newly promoted side without too much trouble. 

MIDFIELD

XI: 

  • Aron Dønnum (41.0%) – You don’t need me to tell you why. The table is pretty conclusive. He’s the most dangerous-looking player in the league right now and should have more goals and assists to his name and yet he’s still been ridiculously productive. He offers threat across the board, impressing in every metric as well as taking corners and drawing free-kicks from his advancing runs. He’s a brilliant winger and a no-brainer for this week
  • Amor Layouni (4.5%) – On the other wing we have Layouni. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea but statistically speaking he’s a solid pick, DGW or not. Not as productive as his teammate but still offers a decent goal and assist threat. The newly signed left winger completes my Vålerenga triple up as even if Osame Sahraoui (5.8%) is used at some point this week, his erratic form and recent injury make him an unlikely threat to Layouni’s chances of starting and besides, even if Layouni is given a mere half an hour against Odd, I’m backing him to return
  • Johan Hove (2.6%) – Despite having the 7th highest RPS value, the Strømsgodset man finds his way into my team for a number of reasons. Has a respectable xG + xA value of 2.08, has created 3 chances from 3 key passes, averaging 20 opposition half passes per game and can certainly play far, far better. I’ve already mentioned Rosenborg’s defensive frailties, but I also think Bodø/Glimt are far from the finished article when it comes to defending. They are letting other teams at them more than they did last season and have already lost(!) – 1-0 vs. Odd – and in that game they failed to score a league goal for the first time since 2019. It would be a truly shocking result if Godset were able to steal 3pts away from the champions, but I think Hove has a bigger chance of getting a return in these games than most people would be willing to recognise
  • Sondre Sørli (13.1%) – The numbers dictate there is more to come from this guy and I’m happy to support that hypothesis by going with him for this week. That is unless I change my mind and go with the statistically much better Fredrik Aursnes instead. We all know what role Sørli offers – running down the right wing before whipping the ball into the box hoping to find some eligible part of Erik Botheim. Like Aursnes he also takes corners, plays regular key passes and is an experienced player at this level. I think he gets into my team ahead of Aursnes mainly down to recent form over the last few games as well as being a more heavily relied upon member of the team for Glimt, than Aursnes is for Molde. If Glimt score, there’s a good chance it’s because of Sørli and I think they score in both fixtures this week
  • Magnus Wolff Eikrem (9.9%) – He’s normally hard to get into your team because of his insane value, but RU means he’s in. He’s an absolute maestro and has some silly stats to back his reputation up. He’s a wonderful player to watch and the best thing about him is that even if he’s given a 20-minute cameo, he can crop up with a return or two. I’m not sure if he starts in both games but he should play in both and like I said, I’m not worried if he’s not even given 90 minutes over both fixtures – he doesn’t need it

Others: 

  • Fredrik Aursnes (43.0%) – Again, look at the numbers. The guy is great and no wonder he’s wanted by Atletico Madrid. The question is would I rather have him over one of Sørli or Hove? Honestly, it’s a tough decision. I’m inclined to suggest Aursnes has been a tad fortunate to get as many returns as he has done whilst simultaneously implying that a Hove-haul is on the horizon. I can see more upside of backing Hove for these games and if that decision comes back to bite me then so be it
  • Ola Brynhildsen (10.7%) – Been a regular this season and has been quietly scoring a good number of points. He’s another Molde attacking midfielder that offers a lot of potential and there’s certainly merit in going with him over Aursnes

SGW Option:

  • Kristoffer Zachariassen (50.6%) – If you aren’t going to load up on DGW players than Zachariassen is obviously the guy you want to fill that gap. I do believe he is overperforming and his current form is unsustainable, however. I can see better options for the double, but I can also understand why people will be scared to go without him. I’m going all in here and looking to optimise wherever I can and that means going without the highest scoring player in the game for this round. He’s in form and could easily get a couple of goals this week but at the same time if he blanked I probably wouldn’t be too surprised. That being said, he’s still clearly the best SGW midfielder to choose from.

FORWARDS

XI:

  • Ohikhuaeme Omoijuanfo (27.4%) – Yeah, this guy is good. Even if he blanks two games in a row, you take him out at your peril. He may not score every week, but he’s got more braces and hat-tricks in his game than anyone else in the league. He’s the kind of Fantasy asset you leave in your team without concern, knowing full well that sometimes he’ll score you 2pts, while other times he’ll score 20. Good stats, good form and good fixtures (kind of). He’s the standout forward for this DGW
  • Erik Botheim (50.4%) – A lot of people are going to be disappointed when this guy stops scoring every week. And I think that’s going to happen sooner rather than later. He’s another player that’s overperforming but in lieu of any competition for that second forward spot, he has to be included. He’s a talented player that’s taking his chances and while I do believe his goalscoring run will come to a rather abrupt end at some point, he represents good value for returns this week

Bench: 

  • Fred Friday (7.0%) – Has two fixtures and doesn’t look awful. That’s the gist of this decision. Has Hove behind him and leads the line for a very attack minded Godset side. Hove gets the starting place in my XI as I think it’s quite obvious he has more to his game than Friday, but both are certainly decent choices

Others:

  • Ibrahima Koné (3.5%) – Probably should have more than one goal and actually offers decent assist potential. He’s had more shots than any of the other forwards but actually has the worst shooting accuracy (25%). He’s also played 5 key passes (joint top) yet has failed to create a single viable goalscoring chance. He’s potentially a good choice and If I was a braver man I’d play him ahead of Botheim this week, but a combination of productivity and fixtures makes that quite difficult for me to see past the Glimt man

SGW Option:

  • Veton Berisha (28.9%) – He’s playing better than most people are giving him credit for and isn’t offering inflated numbers in regard to his returns. Berisha remains a top striker and can score against absolutely anyone on any given day. There’s more to come from this guy, that’s for sure

CONCLUSION

Whatever you do, make sure you understand why you’re doing it. Sounds simple, but sometimes we overcomplicate that logic. I’m playing Rich Uncle because I wasn’t happy with the amount of DGW players I had in my team and had planned to do this from GW1. I’m also approaching RU as a way to make a lot of points other people will miss out on, rather than consolidate my position. This is potentially quite risky, but I feel as though I’ve mitigated enough risk as well as maximising potential gains elsewhere.

Lykke til!

    Thanks for mentioning my WC success, MnT!

    Going well so far - rocketed me up over 1,500 places. Got the luck this week that's for sure.

    Slightly frustrating Holse and Bye looked poor but it will take a lot for me to switch for the patchy Velde ahead of games against Mjøndalen and Lillestrøm next week.

    Lehne Olsen seems to be getting so many chances every time he's on the pitch - he could score 7 against Rosenborg next week! They look dreadful at the back and really floundering their attacking chances, too.

    Think 3rd place is going to finish like 15pts behind 2nd this year. Glimt and Molde will be miles ahead soon.

    Didn't envisage a KBK 3-0 loss or a Bakenga hat-trick so you know, can't get everything right!

    I haven benched Borchgrevink though, so that could bite me...

    I sold Bakenga as he was flagged for Ohi and cap him. Happy he scored a brace! Until i realised Bakenga had a hat trick!

    1. Mince n Tatties
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Can't have them all - and would you have honestly put the armband on Bakenga if you'd kept him?
      I reckon 26 v 17 is a fair outcome

      1. FPL Egregious
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Good point. I think Berisha or sorli would have been my cap. So worked out better. But in general it feels that the flags in Elite aren't as solid as fpl.

        1. ReindeerHotdog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 6 days ago

          They're definitely not. I wouldn't rely on them at all.

          Sometimes players won't get flagged until the night before and vice versa. About as reliable as the refereeing!

          1. Niemi
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Bakenga went off injured with an "arm" injury last game, but was cleared before the game as he said himself he will be able to play through the "pain".

            1. Niemi
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              .. and yes, I forgot to add. I agree the flags are a bit unreliable. There was a realistic doubt though, but probably should have been removed before deadline.

  3. Mince n Tatties

    Half time
    Valerenga 0 Bodo/Glimt 0
    But an extremely entertaining first half - high quality and fast pace from both teams.
    Valerenga had the edge for me

  4. Mince n Tatties
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Bodo?Glimt take the lead with a flick on from the corner with Solbakken with the final header into the net
    1-0

    1. Mince n Tatties
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Saltnes with the initial flick on gets the assist

  5. Mince n Tatties
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Tollas Nation gets the equaliser for Valerenga
    1-1
    Game on!

  6. ReindeerHotdog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Sorli and Botheim both subbed off.

    Don't have Botheim but there goes my chances of getting any attacking returns from this game unless Sampsted can get involved.

    Always thought this game would be starved of many opportunities for points but still, it's a bit odd not seeing Glimt scoring 3 or 4 every game!

  7. Niemi
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Bakenga - what a player. Had amazing underlying numbers before this game, and keep on scoring. Way better pick now that they have given up on Lauritsen as a starter as well, and moved Bakenga back to the striker spot! Lock in when I play my WC.

  8. ReindeerHotdog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Ruud sends in the free kick and Kachi scores!

    Might only be in the 2. Divisjon but I'm all for it.

    Any idea how bad Donnum injury is and when he is expected back? Time to get rid?

    1. Bunk Moreland

      Yup, sell.

    First draft round of 16 team. Backing France, Belgium, Germany, Holland and Italy. GTG?

    Simon Stekelenburg
    Dumfries Meunier Spina Gosens Maeler
    KDB Wijnaldum Berardi Locatelli Kimmich
    Mbappé Depay Lukaku

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Super similar for me.

      Simon, Donnarumma
      Dumfries, Maehl, Spinnazola, Meunier, Gosens
      Locatelli, Berardi, Wijnaldum, Havertz, Gnabry
      Lukaku, Griezmann, Malen

      Have 2.1m in the bank.

      Could use the money to upgrade Griezmann to Ronaldo depending on fixtures.
      Or upgrade Maehl to a more long-term option.

      One of the German midfielders seems too much too.

    2. ReindeerHotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah, brilliant

    Sandefjord squad in quarantine again as per today. Match against Strømsgodset at risk, pending results of their tests

    1. ReindeerHotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Cheers for the update mate.

      We're gonna end up with a quadruple gameweek at this point.

    2. Bunk Moreland
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Update: All players tested negative yesterday, Sandefjord are out of quarantine and the match against Godset goes ahead.

      Apparently the positive covid case was from an injured player who has not been part of match squads lately.

    Marcus Holmgren Pedersen is on his way to Feyenoord.

    Will join the Dutch side on 1st July.

    Zinckernagel 5.5m in FPL doing it for anyone? I'd like to take a chance but prefer Smith Rowe for the same price and probably can't compete with Harrison/Soucek/Traore for 0.5m more

    1. ReindeerHotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Contemplated it and it feels wrong to ignore him but he didn't start many matches last season and Sarr for 0.5m more seems way better value.

      It'll depend on whether Sarr or Sema leave but as far as I'm aware there's no plans to move them on so I think Zinckernagel will either play in a deeper role if he starts, or continue to be brought on later in games.

      As ever, it's all subject to change and who knows what Watford's plans are between now and season start. Either way it will be great to see him in the Premier League - what an achievement.

  14. ReindeerHotdog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 2 days ago

    Planned sub has gone ahead for this week:

    Stengel out
    Skytte IN

    Not expecting too much but it was a toss up between him and Berg and I think Stabæk are going to be well up for the Valerenga game. I don't particularly trust Valerenga to keep a clean sheet either. I'd perhaps go for Edvardsen if I had the money, but Skytte hasn't been awful and could definitely get something in that game.

    Has favourable games against Viking and Sandefjord the weeks after and easily covered for the blank in GW12 before another double in GW13.

    Bar the Glimt game, Stabaek do actually have a nice run of fixtures too - I think there's more to come from Skytte (as an ex-Glimt player himself I shouldn't be surprised!)

    Have Ottesen, Sampsted and Sorli for the double already so only other viable move would have been to bring in Bjorkan for Borch/Aasbak or Berg instead of Skytte. There seems to be a good points spread in the Glimt team at the moment which means I'm happy to play those odds and not feel like I need to have three of their players, especially not when one of them is Berg/take a hit to bring one in.

    No article again from me this week unfortunately as I've been busy updating all my data - as I'm just one person it takes me a ridiculously long amount of time.

    Hopefully Eytexi will be producing some content soon - looking forward to that!

    1. Eytexi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Skytte pick is nice - he was in consideration on last week's WC but have ended up on Normann Hansen as my Stabaek midfielder.

      Unfortunately COVID has struck me down during your small period of absence - would have been an ideal opportunity to get something going. I am also hopeful I'll have something soon! Good luck for the DGW.

        3 months, 2 days ago

        You've had COVID or the vaccine has affected you?

        Sorry to hear that mate - recovering from that is way more important than writing an article or two. Hopefully you'll be sorted soon.

        Good luck for this week bud

    Biggest debate for me this GW was who to start of Borchgrevink (stb), Ottesen (VIF, b/g), & Vilsvik (SAN).

    I've started Borchgrevink, and benched the other two in the order listed above. Despite not looking their best in recent weeks, VIF looked like a different side against Glimt, Sahraoui & Christensen both occupying central positions in a somewhat changed system. This left space for Borchgrevink to advance from right-back, taking 3 shots from open play vs. a strong Glimt side. Borchgrevink also added to his shot tally from a direct free-kick (taking him to 4 shots in GW8), a duty I can see him taking over with Donnum injured (along with, potentially, an even greater share of corners). Furthermore, Valerenga defended well last week (despite losing the clean sheet to a corner), so I would not be surprised to see them hold off Stabaek for a clean sheet.

    That said, I'm backing Stabaek's Normann Hansen and am primarily selecting Borchgrevink for his attacking presence. Ottesen is a tough one to leave out, but I think the cons outweigh the pros of his DGW. Vilsvik has some great attacking stats, but SIF looked open at the back vs Mjondalen, allowing Ovenstad the space to take 5 shots - I noticed in the early minutes a great amount of space being left between the SIF right-back and right centre-back, this weakness being consistent with the number of shots conceded to Ovenstad which eventually lost them their clean sheet. Sandefjord looked great against a poor VIking defence last week and, because of the defensive issue just mentioned, can see Sandefjord's Normann Hansen proving to be a great option again this week - perhaps, I selected the wrong one! Worth mentioning he took 5 shots vs. Viking (and, although that is impressive, VAJ took ELEVEN, both returning 1G, 1A).

    How’s this? No WC left so playing safe with 4 from France and Netherlands:

    Simon, Stek
    Dumfries, Spinazolla, Pavard, Kimpembe, Maehle
    Berardi(1), Wijnaldum, Forsberg(4), Yarmo, Grealish
    Griezmann, Benzema(3), Depay(2)

      Sorry, wrong thread!

    Been watching back the highlights from Valerenga vs. Glimt at the weekend and noticing that some VIF players' numbers are white whereas others have a sort of rainbow gradient. Why is it that they have this difference?

    Didn't realise Aasbak wasn't in the team today but luckily enough he's not on the bench either so Borchgrevink will definitely play for me.

    Was happy taking that risk as well!

        Although Eliteserien Fantasy have it down as a Tchamba goal / Vilsvik assist…

          Just need Sandefjord to equalise then!

          (Vilsvik OG right?)

      Godset's twitter says Tchamba scored...

        Looks like Vilsvik assisted from a corner

    And Mjondalen also go in front against KBK - what has happened to their reliable defence?

      Really glad I went Makani and not McDermott now!

      To be fair I was genuinely thinking this game could easily end 0-0 or 1-0 to KBK. Wasn't expecting an early MJO goal.

      Great!

      Benched one player with an assist and transferred the other out. Awesome!

      Finally. Friday has given me so many 2 pointers I’ve really wanted to sell, but figured I had to give him Sandefjord first .
