fantasy premier league transfer tips GW15: 10 top managers   | fpl.wiki


Here’s our fantasy premier league transfer tips GW15 article where we analyse the teams of 10 top FPL managers. These 10 managers have not finished outside the overall rank of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons. Considering how variable the last 3 years have been this is remarkable consistency and shows an ability to adapt strategy in different seasons. It also gives you a view other than my own on strategy and player selection.

Introduction

The criteria I’ve always been looking for is managers who’ve finished in the top 10k for the last 3 years when FPL has become considerably harder due to the amount of people playing and the information available.

The 10 managers stats

I’ve given the identities and FPL IDs of the 10 FPL managers in the FFGeek Patreon site

It includes our very own Yaniv Salomon who you can follow on twitter here

These managers are incredible and every bit as impressive as last season.

1. The overall average finishing overall rank of the top 10 managers in the last 3 seasons is 3,860

2. The top 10 FPL managers have not been out of the top 10k in the last 3 seasons (ie 30 times playing)

3. 7 of the 10 have finished in the top 1,000 in the last 3 seasons

4. 1 of the 10 have finished in the top 100 in the last 3 seasons

Their basic stats after GW14 Sunday’s games

There were 10 green arrows and 0 red arrows

The average points score in GW14 so far was 84

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers was 212k. That’s 159k better than last weeks average of 371k

The median overall rank was 72k

The average total points are 883.  Median points 886.

The average team value was £104.0m.

The combined total of individual players

I’ve generally only included where there is a minimum of a player in 3 out of the 10 FPL managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by player

Martinez and Chilwell are in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Lamptey is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Dallas is in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Robertson, C Taylor and Forster are in 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Walker Peters and Coufal are in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Justin, Dias, and Steer are in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by team

I have stripped out non playing GKs

Villa and Chelsea are represented 9 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Brighton and Leeds are represented 7 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Liverpool, Burnley and Southampton are represented 5 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

West Ham are represented 4 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Man City and Leicester are represented 3 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Midfielders

Salah, Fernandes and De Bruyne are in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Son is in 8 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Grealish is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Bissouma, Lookman and Soucek  are in 2 of the 10 managers teams

Forwards

Bamford is in 10 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Calvert Lewin is in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Brewster and Watkins are in 4 of the 10 managers FPL teams

Wilson is in 3 of the 10 managers teams

GW14 Captain Choice

10 managers captained Fernandes

The FFGeek Captain Poll was not representative as the late Salah benching rumours changed peoples actions

Formations

4 managers played 3-4-3

5 managers played 3-5-2

1 manager played 4-4-2

Transfers:

2 managers carried over the free transfer

2 managers took a 4 point hit

transfers in

Charlie Taylor was transferred in 5 times

Bruno Fernandes was transferred in 2 times

no other player was transferred in more than once

transfers out

Kilman was transferred out twice

No player was transferred out more than once

Wildcards and Chips

9 managers have used their wildcards to date.  1 has used his triple captain chip

No managers used their wildcard in this gameweek.

The top 10k overall rank vs the 10 FPL managers

Here’s a comparison between the top 10k overall rank ownership % and the 10 top FPL managers.  You can see there are huge differences in the 3rd column so plenty of places to make ground.

The 10 top managers favour the following players significantly compared to the top 10k

Martinez, Lamptey, Dallas , C Taylor and De Bruyne

The top 10k favour the following players over the top 10k

McCarthy and Kane

The template

I use the 10 managers as a proxy for serious managers teams and have a basic rule of thumb that if 7 of the 10 managers have a player or a team defence then I will seriously consider getting that player .

Here’s the template on that basis. The difficulty with tracking the template is that you’re 1 game behind it as you obviously can’t see what their transfers are leading up to the gameweek opening.

Villa defence – Martinez

Chelsea defence – Chilwell

Salah

Grealish

Son

De Bruyne

Fernandes

Bamford

That’s 8 players.

The Brighton defence is also represented 7 times but will be on the FPL bench often so could be excused from the template.  Leeds have 7 defenders although 1 is Douglas who’s on loan at Blackburn so I haven’t counted him.

One managers team

Top scorer so far this week is our very own FFGeek Contributor who is part of the 10 top FPL managers in Yaniv Salomon.  His score so far is 96 points.

He is 5th in the ranking at 70k  overall rank.  His last 3 seasons are outstanding at 3k, 4k and 8k.

He has 7 of the 8 template players.  He doesn’t have Son.  He has no direct or indirect replacement.

The combined 10 top FPL managers teams

Here’s a team which tries to make a combination from the most represented players. Please note that it is meant to be a menu of players to help you choose your transfer rather than a realistic team and it’s value is not necessarily achievable.  This week it is definitely not achievable at £107.7m
