Important note before going further
I’ve now chnged the focus to the last 10 gameweeks rather than the season
The first schedule ranks players by their NON penalty underlying stats and expected assists converted to FPL points in the last 10 gameweeks . Those who have taken penalties or are expected to be the penalty taker have an * next to their name
The form gives their ranking from the season/last 10 gameweeks/ last 5 gameweeks. I’ve put them in seperate columns so they are sortable
The F Ease is the fixture ease ranking.
The value for money VFM ratio is the total expected points from their underlying stats divided by their price
The 2nd schedule shows their xG90 (expected goals) and xA90 (expected assists) plus their shots per 90 and key passes per 90.
There’s also anytime goalscorer odds.
I’ve already posted the defender rankings
Player values and PPMs are as of Wednesday 10th March and before Wednesdays game.
The schedule ranked by Midfielders NON penalty underlying stats over the last 10 Gameweeks
A few comments
The underlying stats may look great over the last 10 gameweeks and they have seen 5 goals and 2 assists over that period but he still suffers from an inability to put the ball in the net and he also seems to be a Pep favourite for a no show. Also doesn’t have pens. At that price you want a little more consistency and penalties for a captain option
Can’t play in GW28 due to the loan from Man Utd. With 4 goals and 2 assists in 6 appearances since joining West Ham on loan he has been a revelation. Underlying stats are better than his history has shown but not ridiculously so. Over performing his stats to some degree but it’s all very promising at this stage
Salah and De Bruyne
Both players have really produced questionable underlying stats recently but both have pens and have shown their quality historically. Certainly over the season De Bruyne is the midfield underlying stats leader. Salah over the season isn’t as positive. It’s just whether you believe the Salah and De Bruyne you expect can return. That’s a difficult question to answer. Over the season Man City and Liverpool lead the league in xG and Shots per game. Man City still lead over the last 10 gameweeks in xG but Liverpool have slipped to 5th.
As a captain option I prefer a premium player who has penalties and has good underlying stats. At the moment Kane fits the bill but there are questions in that regard you can fire at Salah, De Bruyne and Fernandes as I’ll come to later.
Underlying stats are excellent he’s just been hampered by his 48 average minutes per game over the last 10 game. That remains the question though as the last 3 games have seen him subbed at 69,66 and 69 minutes. It’s also worth noting that the last 3 games have seen him score 4 goals from 7 shots which is never going to be sustainable. Lastly assuming Harry Kane is untouchable then do you triple up in attack or drop Son is the question.
There’s no question his non penalty underlying stats aren’t great even if his shoot on sight policy gives him good volumes. However Man Utd were awarded the most penalties last season with 14 and the most the season before with 12. United are 2nd only to Leicester this season with 9 with 11 gameweeks to go and Fernandes has scored 8 of his 16 goals from the spot. He’s hard to ignore for that reason alone as he showed v Man City with a 1 shot penalty display and 2 bonus points. I should add in fairness that he has got 12 assists with only Kane having more.
Some blank GW29 option
Fulham v Leeds – Raphina is the main option for me here with Lookman as a potential for the inconsistent Leeds defence
Brighton v Newcastle – Gross should have penalties so he would be my possibly be my option over Trossard
West Ham v Arsenal – Aubameyang, Saka and Lingard here
Aston Villa v Spurs – Just make your pick of Bale and/or Son remembering youre probably going to have Kane
Players who missed out due to injury
In brackets are where they would have been ranked
Harvey Barnes (9), Grealish (19) and Maddison (13)
Players who missed out due to gametime risk
Just Barkley (23)
Here’s a schedule ranking their fixtures over the next 5 gameweeks by the ease of the defences they face
