FPL

Jamie Pigott crowned 2021/22 FPL champion

Jamie Pigott has been crowned the 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) champion after a dramatic Gameweek 38.

FPL has yet to update after this afternoon’s matches but using LiveFPL’s live league standings tool, we know that Jamie has finished comfortably clear of second-place Suvansh Singh.

Attacking returns from difference-makers Joel Matip, Reece James and Sadio Mane help offset Suvansh’s success stories of Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka.

Suvansh also took a -4 to sell Ollie Watkins and Philippe Coutinho, who unexpectedly delivered attacking returns at the Etihad, but they were part of the move to fund Kane.

The runner-up can at least content himself with the knowledge that he has won the Fantasy Football Scout Members league (amongst many others), finishing ahead of world number five Damien Ruigrok:

Brett Taylor, who ended up with a rank of 3rd, won our Fantasy Football Scout league by a handsome margin, finishing two points short of Suvansh overall:

Congratulations to all the winners and the FPL managers who pushed them close; stay tuned for RedLightning’s next excellent round-up for a more detailed summary of these and other community leagues and cups.

    Can anyone remember when the first GW was with COVID cancellations?

      As I remember it was the second game for Arsenal vs Man city in a DW. Arteta has positive test.

    1818 all out. Thanks for the great advice on here as always. Some great people and brilliant articles!

    A strangely unenjoyable season overall, especially towards the end… but perhaps I just need a much needed break.

    Thanks guys! 🙂

      Likewise Rafa, you've given out lots of really good advice throughout the season. Enjoy the break - you'll be plotting for the next one soon enough.

        Haha! I’ll probably just copy the template with 1 week to go 🙂

      Sharing the same strange feeling about the season even with the best result ever. Dont quite catch where the unjoy comes from.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yeah, was a long slog and personally didn’t enjoy it! A lot of close friends have actually ditched playing so for the most part I was just playing for rank too which was very boring. Not certain I’ll bother next year but will see

        1. BAMBAA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yep, maybe should just take it even more chilled next year if I even make a team. But then where is the fun in that 😀

            Yeah, I wasn’t overly bothered this season but just wasn’t that much fun haha

    I had to wait for the BAPS to be confirmed to start celebrations.

    Salah+Pukki -> Kane+Maddison for -4 and Son(c) turned out to be an excellent move, but thanks to Matip's assist I finished inside Top100! Not to mention that Top1000 always felt like an impossible dream. I'm over the moon.

    I know the game is mostly luck with an element of skills but how do the top dogs consistently finish with high rankings every year? What is the secret!?

    1. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Understanding that it’s not actually mostly luck

      1. zeslinguer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Exactly. The good players put in a lot of ‘work’. Always nose deep in stats and someone consistently in the top 10k is probably watching at least 4 PL games a week. Plus and understanding of risk and EV help (hence why Magnus Carlson does so well)

    2. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      The secret is that the thing you know is totally wrong. Mainly skill, planning and imagination with a splash of luck.

    3. BeWater

      I've read a couple of interviews with Fabio Borges this year and he isn't on twitter, doesn't look at EO (unless it's a tight call between two players), ignores prices and seems to look at long term expected data. His record is very good.

      1. Jambot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He’s a much better player than me but I think it’s worth keeping an eye on prices.

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Only if it doesn't cloud your judgement which rarely happens (buying someone just because he will rise in price soon etc.) It's better to ignore it altogether imho.

    4. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think there’s more skill than is given credit. Forward planning and research on players gets you a good team each week and cope with the occasional failure. I mean that’s what I’ve heard; I’m a casual myself

    5. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      It's judging probabilities.

      And picking Maddison.

    I just want to think the whole community here for helping me have my best season ever. At one point in January, I was as high as 2K, but then the Covid cancellations hit and I fell back as far as 160K. With so much great advice from the members here, I made it back up to 50K on the final day beating my top finish of 85K last year. So thank you guys for helping making playing FPL even more fun for this Yank. Cheers to you guys, and enjoy the off season

          I'm in Pittsburgh. Assuming you're in Cali?

          1. NorCal Villan
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Yeah, Chico. Wife and I both originally east coast, her RI and me NC. Love Pittsburgh, wish we got there more often. Second best ballpark in MLB, great museums, Church Brewery, & Primanti Bros., what’s not to love?

                1 month, 9 days ago

                We now have so many better breweries here than Church. 2nd best ballpark? Which one do you think is better? I mean we are pretty sure that we have the nicest AAA stadium in America here.

                1. NorCal Villan
                    1 month, 9 days ago

                    Well, I am a Giants fan, so I am biased. Those two parks are in a league of their own

                  • NorCal Villan
                      1 month, 9 days ago

                      Yeah, it’s been 10 years since we were there, figured Church might be down in the rankings. Still, the building itself is one of the coolest brewery taprooms I have visited.

                Prob not the only one on here but sold Cash and Coutinho for a hit.
                Got Mount and Spurs defender. Son (c)
                Won ML but finished outside top 100k (140)
                Was at 92k last wk but had a disaster.
                Anyway thanks for all the advice along the way.

                  I sold the same two players for a hit. To get mount! Happens. You couldn’t have predicted that so no point beating yourself up

                  Sold Coutinho for Mount and Cash third on my bench but tbh was never going to play Cash this week anyways

                      Finally over, this season. Felt it was a bit unlucky for me (yet another time... Hard to tell sometimes if you're doing something wrong or simply don't have luck). Barely managed top 100k despite FPL Review showing almost 45% probability for achieving top 10k. But it happens, time to move on and can't wait really for the new season.

                        Can someone far more experienced than I explain Sonny's low BPS this week? 2 goals and a full game played should be much higher, no?

                          Yellow card and missed some big chances I think.

                              Scored 192pts and have a massive late surge in my last two weeks only to lose my ML by one point. Crushed.

                                Usually down to missed shots and giving away the ball.
                                If son had literally not touched the ball apart from his 2 goals, he would have got bonus points I think

                                    I've never seen a 2+ goal scorer blank on BPs. Sooo wild.

                                      Someone here might know the answer this but I think there was at least one player who got a hat trick and no bonus

                                            Those were the days of bonus points being a awarded by a person at the stadium rather then the current bonus points system

                                      Opta stats have him down as missing 3 big chances and the yellow card didn't help

                                    Finished the season with my highest rank ever 1157! Thanks to the community. This GW was a horrible one, Coutinho Richa > Mount Toney for a hit didn't work out. My goalkeepers pickford and foster both missing was a disaster as well as I lost one of my ML for 2 points.. Learned a lesson that whenever in doubt with making a 50/50 decison go with Lateriser's pick. Picks for this week was between Maddison or Mount and Toney or Wilson and I bottled it.. Could have won 2ML's with those picks. Anyway a great season overall,see you all next season.

                                      Sonny with xG of 2.5, lolz. Must have been one of the highest numbers this season. Bit disappointed it he didn't end up with 3 goals and 3 bonus.

                                          I only checked understat.com. Numbers from Opta or Statsbomb may differ slightly.

                                      I'd like to say that I learned something this season and that next year won't repeat same mistakes but...
                                      ...pretty sure will do it all again.

                                      85k all out

                                      unless they revamp this staid and boring format I'll be taking next season off.

                                      needs to be more dynamic and provider needs to find a way of weeding out multiple accounts in my opinion.

                                      this season was draining

                                      good luck to those that sign up though.

                                        Yeah, fluked it in there for short while a few weeks back and thought I was doing well in the GWs that followed only to accumulate a succession of red arrows that promptly pumped me right back where I belong. The top 10k are good players.

                                      37k all out. I think that’s decent enough. Was hoping for my 5th top 10k but the game gets harder every season. Would like to thank the community - the spirit here is great. Would like to thank my dad for always being a listening ear to all FPL problems and both my gfs for their never ending patience. Thank you!!

                                        Didn’t the game reopen again at the start of June last year mate or the week after ??

                                        Most annoying thing with the season being over is that I have to keep Broja in my team trough the summer.

                                        it was a "tough" season to navigate with blanks etc so well done to those who had a great season!!
