    A couple of interesting names I noticed in your report: Les Caldwell (the winner of League 8 Division 104) is Shuddahaddum, the winner of The Next Great and The Good. And Chris James (the winner of League 9 Division 48) is El Fozzie, the FFS Commercial Director. » Read

    He was number 2 in the Hall of Fame last year but has had a terrible season (294k) and dropped to HoF #126. He had previously had nine top 10k finishes in the previous ten seasons, so either he's been too busy this season or there's some other reason. I hope he's OK. » Read

    Top thousand is good, top hundred is excellent. Of our twelve Pro Pundits, seven (Fabio Borges, Darren Wiles, Mark Sutherns, Tom Freeman, Utkarsh Dalmia (Zophar), Andy LTFPL and Seb Wassell) are in the top four hundred, three more in the top two thousand and two not currently ranked. Of the 23 Meet the Manager interviewees, twelve (Tom Stephenson, Darren Wiles, Mark Sutherns, Richard Clarke, Sean Tobin, Phil Ampleford, Jay Egersdorff, Adam Hopcroft, Tom Freeman, Aleksander Vage Nilsen, Zophar and Tarek Balbaa) are in the top two hundred, three more in the top two thousand and eight are not currently ranked. Nine of the managers in Mods & Cons (Mark Sutherns, Tom Freeman, Geoff, Andy LTFPL, Mark Reynolds, The Magician (TorresMagic), Seb Wassell, Jack Penn and Neale Rigg) are currently in the top four hundred. Three of the fourteen winners of our featured mini-leagues and community competitions (Ray Freeman, Tristan Lomas, and Ville Tuominen) are currently in the top two hundred. » Read

    Correction: In 2020/21, the average team conceded 25.5 (not 25.45) goals in home matches, and the total number of goals scored was 1,024 (not 1,023), of which 510 (not 509) were by away teams. » Read

    Thanks, Balders. So just swapping Chilwell and DCL between the starting eleven and Bench 1 gains the extra point. Chilwell (CHE, 5.5m) 139 in 25 Gameweeks (missing Gameweeks 1-3, 18, 21-22, 24-25, 27, 29-30, 32 & 36) Calvert-Lewin (EVE, 7.0m, Bench 1) 130 in 22 Gameweeks (auto sub in Gameweeks 1-9, 12-13, 21-22, 25, 27-28, 30, 33-36 & 38) (4-4-2), 2,660 points (4th) with no chips But 2,680 with TC in GW1, level on points with FPL Champion Michael Coone and winning on fewer transfers » Read

    As we suspected, playing at home offered no advantage whatsoever to the average Premier League team this season. In 2019/20, the average team scored 28.8 goals and conceded 22.85 in their 19 Premier League home matches (1.52 scored and 1.20 conceded per match), keeping 6.15 clean sheets and failing to score 4.20 times in these matches. The total number of goals scored was 1,033( 576 at home and 457 away). In 2020/21 however, the average team scored 25.7 goals and conceded 25.45 in their 19 Premier League home matches (1.35 scored and 1.34 conceded per match), keeping 5.65 clean sheets and failing to score 5.60 times in these matches. The total number of goals scored was 1,023 (514 at home and 509 away). » Read

    https://twitter.com/FPLStatistics says that the highest ranked dead team this season was not even in the top million! In 2019/20 the highest ranked dead team finished 29,438th with 2,252 points (https://www.reddit.com/r/FantasyPL/comments/hxr4fg/highest_ranked_deadzombie_team_revealed_beating/?utm_source=BD&utm_medium=Search&utm_name=Bing&utm_content=PSR1). » Read

    Indeed. If we had extracts from the almanack that only showed the scores each Gameweek for defenders and midfielders who had started the season at 4.0m and 4.5m respectively... But these might still not necessarily be the best players to use our precious free transfers on if we have other fires to put out or other more expensive players that we want to bring in. Could be useful for Wildcards and Free Hits though! » Read

    Interesting, but a team that makes even a few transfers after GW1 is definitely not a dead team for the whole season. It could be argued though that a team that plays a chip before the GW1 deadline but makes no changes thereafter might still be a dead team. In real life and without hindsight, including a few cheapies and then making a small number of transfers to change them might well be a good strategy, but that is a different challenge. None of the players you mentioned made the ideal dead team squad. Salah is usually a safe bet, but forecasting before GW1 who else will be in the ideal dead team squad for the entire season is virtually impossible. Salah was the only player to appear in both the 2019/20 and 2020/21 dead team squads. Salah, Alexander-Arnold and Jimenez were the only ones to appear in two of the last three, and Salah is the only one to appear in three of the last four. » Read

    * Salah is actually only auto-promoted to captain in Gameweeks 1, 36 and 38, since he didn't play in Gameweeks 29 and 34 - but he still accumulated 36 points in those three Gameweeks! » Read

    So the best theoretical dead team squad we know of is the one reported by Balders, which would have scored 2,659 points and finished 4th at a cost of exactly 100.0m despite being five players short in GW29, four short in GW18, three short in GW33, two short in GW16 and one short in Gameweeks 1, 30, 34 and 36. Is this the absolute theoretical best, or might it still be possible to improve it further? He also pointed out that this would increase to 2,679 points, only one point behind FPL Champion Michael Coone, if the Triple Captain chip was played in Gameweek 1; but should a dead team be allowed to play a Triple Captain or Bench Boost chip in Gameweek 1 or is that cheating? His squad breaks down as follows: Starting XI (3-4-3): Martinez (AVL, 4.5m) 186 in 35 Gameweeks (missing Gameweeks 1, 11 & 18) Dallas (LEE, 4.5m) 171 in 37 Gameweeks (missing Gameweek 18) Cresswell (WHU, 5.0m) 153 in 35 Gameweeks (missing Gameweeks 18 & 32-33) Stones (MCI, 5.0m) 128 in 21 Gameweeks (missing G… » Read

    Correction: Bruno also missed Gameweek 38, when Harrison scored 5 and Salah scored 6. So Bruno captain with Harrison vice-captain gains 281 additional captain points, and Bruno captain with Salah vice-captain gains 280 additional captain points. » Read

  20. Euro 2020 Fantasy strategy: How do the chips work and when should we use them? 14 days, 31 mins ago

    Harrison as Vice Captain only works with Bruno as Captain. Bruno misses Gameweeks 1, 29, 34 and 36, and Harrison scored 7+7+2+16=32 in those Gameweeks, the highest score in those Gameweeks from players in my original starting eleven. That's just 32 addditional captaincy points, not 32*2. However, Balders has found a higher-scoring squad which has Harrison on the bench instead of in the starting eleven, so he awards the Vice Captaincy to Salah instead. With Bruno as Captain, Salah scored 20+0+0+10=30 in those Gameweeks. Kane misses Gameweeks 16, 21, 22 and 33, and Bruno scored 6+3+17+3=29 in those Gameweeks. Bruno captain with Harrison vice captain gains 244+32=276 additional captain points. Bruno captain with Salah vice captain gains 244+30=274 additional captain points. Kane captain with Bruno vice captain gains 242+29=271 additional captain points. » Read
