fantasy premier league transfer tips GW27 – 10 top managers  | fpl.wiki


Here’s our fantasy premier league transfer tips GW27 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. Again this week, there were wildcards this week so some significant changes in the teams make up

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 GW26 Sunday

There were 6 green arrows and 4 red arrows

The average points score in GW26 after Sunday was 57 net of point deductions for extra transfers. With it being a DGW and games everyday Monday to Thursday there’s alot more to come

The average overall rank of the top 10 FPL managers was 40k.

The median overall rank was 14k

The average total points are 1,725.

The average team value was £106.0m.

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 is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Dias is in 8 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Dallas is in 7 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Cancelo and Digna are in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Areola and Stones are in 4 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Konsa, Mee and Shaw are in 3 of the 10 managers teams

Goalkeeper/Defence by team

I have stripped out non playing GKs

Man City are represented 18 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Villa are represented 12 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Leeds are represented 8 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Burnley and Everton are represented 6 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Fulham are represented 5 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Man Utd and West Ham are represented 3 times in the 10 FPL managers teams

Midfielders

Salah, Gundogan and Fernandes are in 10 of the FPL managers teams

Raphinha is in 7 of the 10 managers teams

Son is in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Lookman and Harvey Barnes are in 3 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Forwards

Calvert Lewin is in 9 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Kane is in 8 of the 10 FPL managers teams

Bamford and Watkins are in 6 of the 10 FPL managers teams

no other player was transferred in more than once

The 2 wildcard teams

Here’s a comparison between the top 10k overall rank ownership % and the 10 top FPL managers.

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.  The differences in the 3rd column are narrowing but this week did shake things up a bit

fantasy premier league transfer tips GW27

The top 10 managers favour Areola, Konsa, Dias, Lookman and Calvert Lewin significantly (20%) more than the top 10k

The top 10k favour Targett significantly more (20%) than the top 10 FPL managers

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

Man City defence – Dias and/or Cancelo

Salah

Fernandes

Gundogan

Raphinha

Calvert Lewin

Kane

That’s 9 players.

One managers team

I won’t show a team this week as I’ve posted the 2 wildcard teams

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 not achievable at around £109.7m
