Budget or mid-priced defenders?

A thread👇🏻
There’s a distinct pool of defenders featuring in most #FPL Twitter drafts priced between 4.5 and 6.0. So, I thought I would take a dive in to see where the value is...
Outside of owning either/both of TAA/Robbo, I’m seeing names that fall into one of two groups:

Group 1: 4.5-5.0m

Group 2: 5.5-6.0m

Let’s take a segment of these players (the more popular/reliable ones) and compare the numbers:

A thread on the top 10 #FPL moments in the history of the game. This list includes individuals performances, GWs and seasons that live long in the memory of FPL managers, Please RT, like & share if you found this thread enjoyable.

Before we start the list proper, some Honourable Mentions that didn’t quite make the list:
🐐 Sergio Aguero 5 goals vs Newcastle (15/16)
🐐 The birth of RAM - Robertson, Alonso, Mendy (18/19)
🐐 Mane goes off injured vs West Ham for a mass TC fail (19/20)
10. Your Own Walt (1/2)

Taking you all the way back to the 2012/13 season for this one, when Man United won their final title under Sir Alex Ferguson. Chelsea travelled to Stoke, who were unbeaten in 17 home games.

Arsenal 🔴⚪

GW 4-11 📝

This run of fixtures point towards potential clean sheets so White & Holding will be popular picks on the defensive front while ESR and Pépé will be popular attacking options.
Even Aubameyang could be a shout… (don’t do it)
Villa 🟣🔵

GW1-3 📝

Targeting Villa early is advised but the fixtures turn sour quickly facing CHE, EVE, MUN, TOT in the next 4.
You might feel like a tourist on a “Hop-On, Hop-Off” bus but owning Grealish, Buendia & Watkins during these games could see you rise up the ranks

🎯Best Mid Priced (£7.0-£8.0) FWDs

All drafts I’ve seen so far have at least 1 Mid Priced Forward. But the problem is there are so many great options.

I’ll look into each players fixtures and points ceiling to try and help you nail your Mid Price Option.

#FPL #FPLCommunity
⚪️Bamford (£8.0)

Last season’s hero, Bamford was 2nd highest FWD scorer (194). His 17 Goals & 11 Assists superb for his first EPL Season.

The Forwards Goal Threat was strong, with 174 Penalty Touches, taking 95 Attempts in the Box. 32 Big Chances also highlighting his poacher…
…qualities. Also on Pens, Bamford’s looking a great option.

Leeds’ opening fixtures are mixed, getting better from GW7. But Leeds were attacking against any oppo last season. A major downside for me is the price, with £8.0 possibly too much for the Englishman.

5️⃣ Mistakes you should avoid when building your Gameweek 1 #FPL squad.



#FPLCommunity #FantasyPremierLeague
1️⃣ Not leaving money in the bank.

Spending all of your budget in Gameweek 1 leaves no flexibility when making a transfer. You will only be able to buy a player of the same value or less, than the player being transferred out. Especially if price changes affect your players.
2️⃣ Not picking a premium player in each position.

Having one of the most expensive players in each position means you can easily transfer to any other player in one move.
E.g If all of your defenders are £4.5m, you will have to find spare cash elsewhere if you want to upgrade.

Optimal 8 GW plan using Review's preliminary values. It will take a while until HiveMind minutes to get more accurate, but I dropped players with less than 55 exp. minutes.

Plan 1 gives 456.73 xP
Plan 2 gives 453.61 xP ImageImage
If you prefer not to see any numbers, here are the plans without numbers ;)

Both plan includes TAA, Shaw, Salah, Watkins, Toney. Second plan is created by forcing to replace 5+ lineup players in each GW.

If you have any requests, ask me below! (horizon, forced players, etc..) ImageImage
Plan with Havertz forced. He becomes (V) GW1 and stays. Total xP is 455.56

Thoughts on yesterday’s news (1/2):

Sancho 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿:

I won’t be starting with him, want to see how he integrates into the side as my gut feeling (at the moment, this may change) tells me he doesn’t hit the ground running.

I expect him to be priced at £9.5M and it’s..

#FPL #Sancho
too high a price for me to justify facilitating him with a plethora of other well established midfield options.

Nuno 🇵🇹 -

The Doherty revival is now certainly a viable prospect. However before choosing him I want to see an improvement in Spurs’s individual CB performances...
and arguably more importantly a better defensive structure off the ball, specifically against the 4-2-3-1.

Gameweek 38 Analysis ✍️

Hello everyone and welcome to my final FPL thread for 2020/2021

#FPL #FPLCommunity @OfficialFPL @FFScout
Fixtures to target 🏹

🔴 Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Klopp considered this game as the game of year for the Reds to secure UCL spot next year . Mo Salah who is challenging also for the golden boot as well as his teams will target the 3rd worst defence in the league
⚪️ Leeds vs West bromich

In my opinion, Apart from the current top 6, Beilsa and his men are considered the team of year this season with outstanding performance. WBA already relegated and could be without Periera should be a tasty fixture in a crowded Elland Road

Ahead of #FPL GW38, I thought I'd compile some historical data from the final GW of the season for you fine lot. All the data is taken from the last 10 seasons.

(For the purpose of word limits, avg = average)
1) GW38 has averaged 3.3 goals per game, which is higher than the season average for each of the last 10 seasons.

2) There have been 21 games featuring already relegated sides in that time. Relegated Sides have 4W, 2D and 15L in these 21 games
3) These 21 games have averaged 3.7 goals, with relegated sides conceding 2.6 goals/game on average

4) There have been just 43 CS in the 100 GW38 games, with an average of 4.3 CS per GW38, giving a CS success rate of 21.5%. Hits or defensive transfers look unlikely to pay off.

#Fantasy #EURO2020 - The things you need to know
In this thread I will give a quick run-down of what are the things you need to know as an #FPL manager going into the Euros. I will only mention what is different between the two, assume the rest is what you are used too.
3 players max from each side during the group stage
4 players max from each side during round of 16
5 players max from each side during the quarters
5 players max from each side during the semis
8 players max from each side during the final
Players do not rise and fall in price during the tournament!
You start with 100M and get an automatic rise to 105 during the round of 16 (GW 4).

@JoshuaABull won 2019-2020 FPL season with 2557 points. I wrote an optimization model to use realized values to check what was technically possible. I will publish the results tomorrow, but let's see your best guesses before then.
What was the max total points achievable in hindsight (by optimization model)?
Without using any transfers and WC chip, what was the max total points achievable in hindsight?
