fantasy premier league transfer tips GW16: 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 GW15

There were 9 green arrows and 1 red arrow

The average points score in GW15 was 56

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers was 172k. That’s 40k better than last weeks average of 212k

The median overall rank was 57k

The average total points are 937.  Median points 948.

The average team value was £104.2m.

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 Dallas are in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Coufal is in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

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

Chilwell, Walker Peters and Lamptey are in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

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

Goalkeeper/Defence by team

I have stripped out non playing GKs

Leeds are represented 10 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Villa are represented 9 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Liverpool and West Ham are represented 6 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

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

Chelsea and Brighton are represented 4 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Midfielders

Salah is in 10 of the FPL managers teams

De Bruyne is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Son and Fernandes are 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 5 of the 10 FPL managers teams

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

Davis and Adams are in 2 of the 10 managers teams

GW15 Captain Choice

10 managers captained Salah

The FFGeek Captain Poll showed Salah at 79% and De Bruyne at 10%

Formations

4 managers played 3-4-3

5 managers played 3-5-2

1 manager played 4-5-1

Transfers:

1 managers carried over the free transfer

1 managers took a 4 point hit

transfers in

Dallas was transferred in 3 times

Stones, Adams and Coufal were transferred in 2 times

no other player was transferred in more than once

transfers out

Chilwell was transferred out 5 times

Lamptey was transferred out 3 times

Wilson was transferred out 2 times

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, Dallas , C Taylor, Coufal 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

Leeds defence – Dallas

Salah

Grealish

Son

De Bruyne

Fernandes

Bamford

That’s 8 players.

One managers team

Top scorer so far this week is 70.

This manager is 2nd in the ranking at 6k  overall rank.  His last 3 seasons are outstanding at 8k, 4k and 6k.

He has 7 of the 8 template players.  He doesn’t have Grealish.  He doesn’t have a like for like replacement.  In exact position it’s Soucek

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 £106.8m
