Important note before going further
I’ve now changed the focus to the last 10 gameweeks rather than the season
The first schedule ranks players by their underlying stats expected goal and assists converted to FPL points in the last 10 gameweeks . Those who are expected to be the penalty taker have an * next to their name.
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.
ATGS is the anytime goalscorer odds
I talk about DGW and BGWs below
I’ve already posted the defender rankings
Player values and PPMs are as of Wednesday 21 April before any matches.
The schedule ranked by Midfielders underlying stats over the last 10 Gameweeks
What is known is that GW33 is a blank week for Man City, Spurs, Fulham and Southampton
Aston Villa v Everton and Palace v Southampton still need to be rearranged somewhere
I’ve made the assumption that the proposed changes for allowing fans into the stadium for the last 2 gameweeks will go ahead and that the 2 above games will also go into GW35.
You can see how that plays out in the Fixture ease schedule below. Essentially some teams have a DGW35 followed by a BGW36 and the 4 teams above will have a DGW plus a game in GW36
This is not guaranteed and hasn’t been announced but seems a sensible assumption
The fixture ease ranking isn’t affected as it takes into account all games on an aggregate basis to the end of the season
5 goals and 2 assists in his last 4 games. Top of the midfielders points per match. Has a tough game v Chelsea next so not a great entry point but after that that fixtures are generally ok.
Great underlying stats from a quality and volume perspective. Also generally plays 90 or close too that. Playing virtually as a forward with Bowen as his partner
Possibly will relinquish penalties to Noble if they are on the pitch at the same time
Only 2 goals in his last 8 appearances but the underlying stats have generally held up despite that which gives confidence for the excellent fixtures ahead.
Has penalties and will still be a captain option going forward given those fixtures.
Newcastle is an excellent entry point if you are thinkng of transferring him in
Just 1 goal and 1 assist in his last 7 matches. Despite that the underlying stats are ok although unless you’re planning on captaining him I don’t think he offers value for money particularly.
The fixtures are pretty mixed but if they pan out as I’ve put them he could be in the mix for a DGW35 captain option so that and the fact they play Leeds in GW33 mean he could just be a hold for the moment
1 goal and 2 assists in the 5 appearances since he’s been played as a false 9 in Chelsea’s system. He’s helpfully started 4 of those 5 fixtures as well.
His volume underlying stats have been terrrible over the season but the new position seems to have rectified that and now the question is more gametime as the xG is absolutely fantastic.
3 of those 5 games have seen 90 minutes played which is helpful but still with Chelsea in the UCL and the FA Cup things are far from certain.
The other tricky thing is that the fixtures are pretty mixed.
After blanking for 8 games the WBA mid has finally come to light with 3 goals and 2 assists in his last 3 games. He also has penalty duties.
Has had 3 huge games in the last 10 but there have also been some games where he’s not shown up at all.
The fixtures are very mixed and it is WBA so he does represent something of a gamble
After a flying start to the season things have tailed off for Son and the potential loss of Kane could have mixed blessings. While he could play CF he will definitely miss the creative relationship with Kane so it’s hard to see it as a positive.
In the short term he has no fixture in GW33 so that gives potentially time for Kane to recover or for at least for their to be more information. Also in the short term GW34 it’s Spurs v Sheffield Utd so with or without Kane that’s hardly a good exit point.
1 goal and 2 assists in his last 10 appearances and 15th in midfielder Points Per Match.
Underlying stats are ok and enough to see him into this table. They are just no way good enough for the price
Started the last 3 and 2 goals vs Spurs have brought him to FPL managers attention. Has been in and out of the side so there is a risk there.
Underlying stats are ok quality wise but poor volume wise and wierdly his underlying stats seem better as a CM than as a CAM.
Penalties and a DGW in the future are the main attraction.
Probably the safest player in the Tuchel rotation but still comes on as sub so there’s always that 1 point risk.
After playing 7 straight games he’s now been a sub in 2 of the last 5 so maybe the UCL and FA Cup are starting to bite.
Generally consistent underlying stats and returns and has generally been playing in the attacking midfield positions although that was not the case v Brighton where he was poor.
Was excellent last season and now started the last 4. Underlying stats are very good but he’s been hampered in his ranking by the average minutes which are hard to predict going forward given his history this season and Chelsea still in the UCL.
Fixtures aren’t great either and his best returns in those 4 games were against Palace and WBA
Started 3 of the last 4 games and in those games he’s produced 4 goals and an assist backed up by excellent underlying stats in qulaity and volume.
Over the last 10 gameweeks have been good for his price in quality and volume and you would think this form should mean he holds his place in the team.
I guess there is still a risk that the front 4 are Cavani, Fernandes, Rashford and Pogba and it may depend where Pogba plays as to how many games he starts.
Fixtures are mixed
3 goals and 2 assists in his last 4 appearances effectively playing as a forward alongside Lingard with Antonio out.
Underlying stats are ok and the fixtures are also ok after Chelsea this gameweek. It’s just whether you would want him and Lingard in your team
3 goals in 4 starts plus 2 sub appearances since coming back from injury. Underlying stats are ok and he’s just about there in value for money. The bookies definitely believe in him and his scoring odds are very low
Still appears to have some gametime risk if Klopps wants to persist with a 4-3-3.
Fixtures are very good
Just too expensive for me for what he produces even if it is enough to get him into the rankings
