Choosing between Salah or KDB for captaincy #GW4? Here are some last minute thoughts and advice {THREAD}👇🏻🤓

#FPL #FPLCommunity Yonkers’ research confirms the theory many of us had that Salah in fact is better for fpl when he’s playing without Mané.

Watchlist - Gameweek 3 {THREAD}

DF: Digne (£6.1m) - Not much needs to be said of the flying Frenchman's ability to provide points, having laid on 4 goals and 13 assists in his two seasons so far at the club.

#FPL #FPLCommunity #GW3 Image Everton have a relatively comfortable run in their next 5, with 4 fixtures against teams they would be hoping to replicate their opening day clean sheet against. Image

Watchlist gameweek 2 {THREAD}🧵🧐

Who made your watchlist in GW1? Let us know in the comments!👇

#FPLCommunity #FPL #GW2 Image DEF: Lamptey (£4.5m) - As a team, Brighton passed the eye test against Chelsea, who were hugely flattered by a 3-1 score line, and few stood out like the young right back. Playing as a RWB in front of a back 3, Lamptey had plenty of room to roam and looked lively all evening,... Image

Tactical Analysis GW1 {THREAD}

- How heavily should we target Fulham defense in FPL?
- Is Bellerin worth the price?
- What is Willian's role at his new club?

#FPL #FPLCommunity Image As the new season begins I wanted to start a new series where I use my tactical knowledge as a football coach and apply it to FPL. We will take a look at the skills and roles of players and how it affects the FPL output of themselves and their teammates.

#FPL Watchlist #GW1

It's fair to say that FPL 2020/21 may be the most difficult yet, with two of the country's biggest teams missing out the first GW altogether. With this in mind, GW1 may not be the time for taking risks, so we've considered some reliable assets... ... who should provide solid value on their starting prices. However, don't despair - there will be a more daring list of differentials coming later in the week!

Let's dive in 👇🧐

Value & points projections GW1-5 🤑 🧐


#FPL #FPLCommunity Image Finally algo projections has arrived! We'll take a look at which players provide the best value based on this.

Projections were gathered from two different FPL sites. I tweaked the numbers a tiny bit to my own preference for instance I boosted Vinagre's numbers to match Saiss.

Premium assets vs bottom 8: Part 2 🧵 {THREAD} 🧵

Looking at the 18/19 data

#FPL #FPLCommunity Image Here is the first part examining the 19/20 data, so make sure to read it first if you haven’t.

In this thread I’ll add the 18/19 data vs bottom 8 as well and see how the stats change when we merge the two seasons.

A counterintuitive approach to captaincy 🧵 {LONG THREAD} 🧵

19/20 was a very disappointing season for me when it came to captaincy. So now during the break I thought it was time to make a thorough analysis of what went wrong.

#FPL #FPLCommunity Image I always aim to find clear guidelines to go for, since this will make my findings both easier to retain for readers but also easier for myself to employ successfully.

My initial thoughts a day after the fixtures release. {THREAD}

Not as well written as my threads use to be but I wanted to share it ASAP. After more research these views will surely change a bit, and you'll hear from me again!

Format inspired by @BigManBakar

#FPL #FPLCommunity Image 1: Salah

I see Salah in every draft and am uncertain if I'm going to start him myself. Good C for GW1 but am not convinced Leeds will be ran over. Anyway, after that I'll probably not C him until GW7. Not sure if he's worth 12M during GW2-6 if I'm not going to C him.

How long does form last? {THREAD}

I’ve been looking at some stats from last two seasons. My goal is to get some insight into how many weeks different players should be owned before transferring them out.

#FPL #FPLCommunity Image The idea behind it is that we would ideally jump between the players with the best form while timely drop those players that have seen their good form end.

My goal is to try to figure out approximately how many gameweeks a player’s form typically lasts.

Calculating Target Value💰🧮 {THREAD}

In order to accomplish the goals we've set up for ourselves in FPL we need a simple way to judge the quality of our squad and determine if it's going to be good enough. Here's how I do it.

#FPL #FPLCommunity In my latest thread I discussed how we can set goals for ourselves in FPL. The next step is to try to have a balanced squad that helps us reach this goal. To know if our players meet our goal's criteria we will take a look at how to analyze their value in relation to our target.

Setting goals for a new FPL season {THREAD}

Have you thought about what your goals are for next season? Winning FPL is a dream for most of us, but it can feel a little far-fetched...

#FPL #FPLCommunity #FPLPsychology When you define your FPL goals this season, I would like for you to contemplate for a moment the Pareto principle, often referred to as the 80/20 principle, and it states: “for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes”.

I was one of the subjects to be asked a bunch of questions by @FPL_Dutchie. I'm going to share what my answers were in this thread!

#FPL Q: How would you make a balanced squad at the start of the season with player prices?

A: Focus on getting players with good fixtures for the first 4 GW, I like to take an early WC and try to always have high Team Value throughout the season.

#FPL #FPLCommunity #GW38 DF: Erik Pieters (£4.3m, 6.0% TSB) - I'm doubling down on Erik after a 12 point haul when I shouted him for week 37. A clean sheet for Burnley could see Nick Pope win the Golden Glove for the first time and few... Image

Regression to the mean. A very long #FPL {THREAD}

After seeing the skill/luck debate I felt it would be fitting to share what I've learned from the book “Thinking Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahnemann.

The concept can be applied to examine players but also our own results. The book is about biases that cloud our reasoning and distort our perception of reality. It turns out there is a whole set of logical errors that we commit because our intuition and brain do not deal well with simple statistics.

Watchlist GW 37+


#FPL #FPLCommunity #GW37

37 is a very tough week, with good teams playing each other, so we may be looking at a few differentials again... DF: Erik Pieters (£4.2m, 4.3% TSB) - Pieters has started the last 5 games in midfield for Burnley and could be in line to do the same against already-relegated Norwich. Image

Watchlist {Thread} GW 36+

#FPL #FPLCommunity #GW36

DF: Enda Stevens
(£5.1m, 3.9% TSB):
Sheffield Utd looked back to themselves as they cruised to a 3-0 win against Champions League chasing Chelsea... Image ...Stevens supplied an assist - his second in four games - to help them on their way and with two clean sheets in their previous two games, don't be surprised if a couple more get added to that tally before the season is over.
