FPL 2023-24: Gameweek 16 preview

At the moment of writing, the gameweek 15 games between Everton and Newcastle and between Spurs and West Ham, still need to be played, so do keep that in mind. Having said that, gameweek 15 has already given us plenty to ponder, including an incredible last-minute Arsenal victory over Luton (which only became even more incredible after Manchester City’s 1-0 loss at Villa Park a day later) and Manchester United’s home win versus Chelsea, courtesy of a Scott McTominay brace. Fulham also shared in the headlines by wiping the floor with Nottingham Forest at Craven Cottage, winning 5-0 with a hattrick of assists by one of last season’s stand-out budget fantasy performers Andreas Pereira.

With just about 38 hours between the final gameweek 15 whistle on Thursday and the kick-off of gameweek 16 between Crystal Palace and Liverpool on Saturday, there is no time to lose in terms of preparation. From an FPL point of view, the Man City visit to Kenilworth Road on Sunday naturally stands out, though the visit of Liverpool to Selhurst Park and the clash between Man United and Bournemouth at Old Trafford are brimming with fantasy potential as well. Considering Sheffield United’s recent form, the visit of Brentford to Bramall Lane on Saturday should have owners of Bryan Mbeumo in particular hopeful for another nice gameweek.

Check out FISO’s FPL Forum for the latest discussion and don’t forget, the deadline for gameweek 16 is set at 11h00 (UK time) on Saturday, December 9th, 2023.

Most transferred in/transferred out players (as per December 6th, 2023)

GKPope (NEW), Alisson (LIV), Turner (NOT)Dubravka (NEW), Ederson (MCI), Onana (MUN) 
DEFCash (AST), Andersen (CRY), Saliba (ARS)Alexander-Arnold (LIV), Colwill (CHE), Trippier (NEW)Cash benchings, Newcastle fixtures, TAA form

Premium pick

After Aston Villa’s somewhat surprise victory over Man City on Wednesday (we say somewhat, because the Cityzens have been fumbling points of late, struggle without Rodri and Villa look like Champions League contenders at the moment), the reigning champions now find themselves in fourth place, six points behind leaders Arsenal. That’s not something the skyblue side of Manchester has been used to this decade, so we do expect them to regain some of their winning ways soon. The upcoming visit to Luton Town looks like a perfect opportunity to do just that, which is why our premium fantasy pick for gameweek 16 is Erling Haaland (£14.0m). The Norwegian has now gone an unbelievable two consecutive league games without a goal, despite recording an Expected Goal ratio of 0.77 in GW14 and 0.83 in GW15. Despite their recent struggles, we expect Man City to dominate this one and Haaland to add at least one to his current 14 goals from 15 league starts.

Non-premium pick

Sheffield United have conceded 10 goals in their last three league games and the 5-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley back in gameweek 14 felt particularly worrisome for the Blades. They are now bottom of the table with just five points and 11 goals scored, while having conceded a worrying 41 goals. They can therefore be considered the Premier League whipping boys of the moment and Brentford is the side facing them coming weekend. Now, Brentford have had a decent run, winning five games and losing six to get them to their current 11th place in the league. We are mentioning them here though, because the Bees count on Bryan Mbeumo (£7.1m) for much of their attacking threat in the continued absence of Ivan Toney, and the Cameroon international has not disappointed so far. The attacker, who is listed as a midfielder in FPL, has managed 7 goals and 4 assists from 15 league starts, and lately he has been back in the returns. He provided an assist versus Luton in GW14 and then scored his side’s only goal against Brighton on Wednesday. Our hope is that he can extend this run of consecutive attacking returns to three when Brentford visit Sheffield United on Saturday, despite his current yellow flag.

The budget enabler

We know that we included Wolves forward Matheus Cunha (£5.6m) as our budget enabler in the preview for gameweek 15 as well, but his assist in the 1-0 victory over Burnley made it four consecutive league games with an attacking return in a row. Since his assist against Spurs back in gameweek 12, the Brazilian youngster has collected 22 FPL points for an average of just over 5 FPL points per game. Not bad at all for a starting forward priced at just £5.6m for the moment. From gameweek 17, Wolves’ schedule becomes considerably more difficult, but before that happens, there is still the home game against Nottingham Forest this Saturday. The Tricky Trees are coming off a rather surprising 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Fulham at Craven Cottage, so we don’t expect their defence to be brimming with confidence for their visit to Molineux. Cunha is one of the men in form for Wolves at the moment and we honestly don’t see why he could not make it five returns in five games this gameweek.

The differential

In more or less any way you look at it, Chelsea are having a horrid season. Despite spending almost a billion (!) pounds on new blood in about two season, the Blues currently find themselves in tenth place in the league, no less than 11 points behind the top four. Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s men got a bit of a boost of confidence when they beat Brighton 3-2 back in gameweek 14, but that confidence was brittle as the Blues went under against Manchester United a few days later. The upcoming run of fixtures should inspire hope in the Chelsea faithful though, as the Londoners have one of the best schedules of all teams for the foreseeable future. We are therefore highlighting Levi Colwill (£4.5m) as an interesting budget enabler on both the short and the long term. The left-back position seems his to lose at the moment, which is great news for owners with Everton away, Sheffield United at home, Wolves away, Crystal Palace at home and Luton Town away in the next five. With Ben Chilwell’s return from injury unknown, we would not be surprised to see Colwill feature in more than a few wildcards over the coming gameweeks.

The (vice-)captaincy

As far as we are concerned, Erling Haaland away at Luton Town screams captaincy. He already has 14 goals and 5 assists to his name so far, and despite Luton’s encouraging first half of the season, we find it hard to see them make it three consecutive league games without a goal for the Norwegian.

As usual, Mohamed Salah provides probably the best alternative to Erling Haaland. Liverpool visit a Crystal Palace, who have 21 goals in 15 league games so far, while Salah has already bagged 10 (plus 6 assists) this season. Other interesting though riskier picks for the armband are Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo away at Sheffield United, Wolves forward Matheus Cunha at home to Nottingham Forest and even Man City’s Phil Foden.

Fantasy Player Prop Betting Advice – Comparing Lines, Playing Matchups, and More

Author: Anthony Haage

We simply can’t get enough of fantasy sports. Sportsbooks are starting to get in the fun as well, offering plenty of fantasy player props for us to wager on. If you’re able to correctly predict how many fantasy points a certain player will score, it could make you a significant amount of cash.

Of course, this is easier said than done. The top betting sites are incredibly accurate when it comes to predicting lines, which makes it harder on us bettors. Luckily, there are a number of ways for us to regain our advantage.

Stick to a Sport You Know

If you are just getting into fantasy player prop betting, it’s important that you keep it simple. The best way to do that is to stick to a sport that you know. Fantasy player prop bet is already difficult, and it’s even harder when you have no idea what’s going on.

It can take years to fully understand the ins and outs of a particular sport. New sports bettors could struggle if they rush into it and lose all of their funds right away.

Either take the time to learn more about a new sport, or stick to one that you are comfortable with. It’s also important to use a site like https://www.gamblingsites.com/football-betting/sites/, especially since football is the most popular sport for fantasy.

Compare Odds and Lines

You don’t always have to become an expert in a certain sport to win your bets. Another thing you could do is compare the odds and lines to help you make more informed decisions.

Sportsbooks don’t always offer the same fantasy player prop bet. You might notice one site has a player with a line set at 13.5, while another one has them at 14.5. Simply by noticing this, you could make the assumption that betting on the over for the 13.5 prop is a smart move.

They might both offer the line at 13.5, but they could also have varying odds. One site might have a -115 price, while the other is at +110. In this case, it would make more sense to take the +110 option since it has more betting value.

Research Trends and Matchups

Betting on fantasy player props can be complicated, but you can do some research to help yourself out. There are a number of different tools that you can use online, but the most basic one is to look at the box score stats.

By doing this, you can see just how many fantasy points a player tends to score. You can also see how consistent or inconsistent they are. The more reliable they are, the more comfortable you should be betting on them.

Matchups are also incredibly important in this betting market. Certain teams will allow more or less points to specific positions. For example, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are tough on opposing running backs. You can use this information to bet the under on their opposing RB’s fantasy points.

Injuries can also make a team vulnerable. Be sure to research both season long and week-to-week trends to make the best decision for your wager.

Fantasy Sports Betting 101: Your Starter’s Guide

Fantasy sports betting has become increasingly popular over the years, with more and more people joining in on the fun. It is a type of online sports betting where participants create virtual teams of real-life athletes and compete against each other based on their performance in actual games. It is a great way to add extra excitement to watching sports and can also be a lucrative hobby for successful people.

If you are new to fantasy sports betting, it can be overwhelming to understand all the ins and outs of this activity. That’s why this comprehensive starter’s guide is here to help. In this guide, you will learn everything you need to know about fantasy sports betting, from the basics to more advanced strategies. Whether you want to participate in football, soccer, basketball, baseball, or hockey, this guide will provide the knowledge and tools to get started. So, let’s dive in and explore the world of fantasy sports betting together.

Understanding Fantasy Sports

The Basics of Fantasy Sports

Fantasy sports are online games that allow players to draft a virtual team of real-life professional athletes. The players then compete against each other based on the statistical performance of their chosen athletes in real-life games. Fantasy sports are typically played over a season, and the player with the most points at the end of the season wins.

A player needs to join a league to get started with fantasy sports. Leagues can be public or private, and they can be free or require an entry fee. Once a player joins a league, they must draft their team. The draft is where players select their athletes for the season.

Types of Fantasy Sports

There are many types of fantasy sports, but the most popular ones are football, soccer, basketball, baseball, and hockey. Fantasy sports can also be played in different formats, such as dynasty, keeper, best ball, and standard. Each format has different rules and scoring systems, so it’s important to understand the differences before joining a league.

Scoring Systems Explained

In a fantasy contest, the players earn points based on their performance, not by playing against another team, as in a traditional sports betting format. The points distribution depends on the scoring system used by the league. For example, in a standard scoring system for fantasy football, a touchdown is worth six points, while a field goal is worth three points.

It’s important to understand the scoring system used by the league before drafting a team. This will help players identify which athletes will likely score the most points and make better draft choices.

Tips for Fantasy Sports Rookies

For those new to fantasy sports, it’s important to do some research before joining a league. This includes understanding the league rules and scoring system and researching the best players for the position. It’s also essential to monitor the roster and make changes as needed, such as through trades or adding new players.

Fantasy sports can be a fun and exciting way to engage with professional sports and compete against others. By understanding the basics of fantasy sports, the types of fantasy sports, and the scoring systems, players can enjoy the game and improve their chances of winning.

Getting Started with Fantasy Betting

Fantasy sports betting is online gambling that allows players to assemble a virtual team of real-life players to compete against other player-created teams. In this section, we will provide a comprehensive guide on how to get started with fantasy betting.

Choosing the Right League

Before diving into fantasy betting, it is essential to choose the right league. The number of teams, division, and the format of the league will impact the types of players available for drafting. The NFL is one of the most popular fantasy sports leagues, and it offers a wide range of options, including standard leagues, PPR (points per reception) leagues, and dynasty leagues.

Drafting Your Initial Roster

Once you have chosen the right league, the next step is to draft your initial roster. The most important positions to consider are the quarterback, running backs, wide receivers, tight end, kicker, and defense/special teams. Beginners should focus on drafting skilled players who are consistent in their performance.

Key Strategies for Beginners

Research is key when it comes to fantasy betting. Staying up-to-date with player news, projections, and ADP (average draft position) is essential. Beginners should also participate in mock drafts to get a feel for drafting strategies and value-based drafting.

Value-based drafting involves selecting players based on their value rather than their ADP. This strategy ensures you get the most value out of each pick. Beginners should also consider drafting rookies in later rounds, as they can provide excellent value for their ADP.

In conclusion, getting started with fantasy betting requires careful consideration of the league, drafting a skilled roster, and implementing key strategies. By following these tips, beginners can improve their chances of success in fantasy sports betting.

Managing Your Fantasy Team

Week-to-Week Decisions

Managing your fantasy team is a crucial aspect of fantasy sports betting. You must decide which players to start and which ones to bench every week. Injuries, roster changes, and schedule conflicts can all impact your lineup decisions. It is important to stay up-to-date with the latest news and analysis to make informed decisions.

One helpful tool for making start/sit decisions is the start/sit assistant. This tool can provide recommendations based on player matchups, injuries, and other factors. Additionally, the bye week cheat sheet can help you plan and avoid starting players with a bye week.

Advanced Tactics

In addition to week-to-week decisions, advanced tactics can give you an edge in fantasy sports betting. The waiver wire is a key resource for finding players who are not currently on a team’s roster but have the potential to contribute to your team. Depth charts can also help you identify players undervalued or overlooked by other fantasy owners.

Another important tool is the trade analyser and trade value chart. These tools can help you assess the value of potential trades and determine whether they are worth pursuing. The strength of the schedule is another factor to consider when making trade decisions.

Finally, staying on top of transactions and player coverage can help you make informed decisions about your team. By following news and analysis from trusted sources, you can stay ahead of the competition and make smart decisions that give you an edge in fantasy sports betting.

Tools and Resources

Fantasy sports betting can be an exciting and lucrative hobby, but it can also be challenging to navigate without the proper tools and resources. Here are some essential resources to help you get started:

Utilising Fantasy Sports Platforms

Fantasy sports platforms such as ESPN, My Playbook, and Draft Simulator can be incredibly useful for fantasy sports betting enthusiasts. These platforms provide a wealth of information, including expert analysis, rankings, and news updates. They also offer tools such as cheat sheet creators and draft simulators to help you prepare for your drafts and make informed decisions.

Leveraging Expert Analysis

Expert analysis is an invaluable resource for fantasy sports bettors. Websites such as FantasyPros and The Fantasy Footballers offer expert consensus rankings and articles from respected journalists and analysts. Podcasts such as The Fantasy Footballers and The Fantasy Football Show provide in-depth analysis and insights from industry experts.

Twitter is also a great resource for staying up-to-date on the latest news and analysis. Many fantasy sports analysts and journalists have active Twitter accounts that share breaking news and insights into player performance.

In conclusion, you can gain a competitive edge in fantasy sports betting by utilising these tools and resources. Remember to stay up-to-date on the latest news and analysis, and always make informed decisions based on the best available information.

Staying Ahead of the Game

Fantasy sports betting is gaining popularity in the UK, and a spokesperson for the payment website PayByPhoneBillCasino.uk said “Fantasy sports betting is a dynamic and ever-evolving industry. Staying ahead of the game requires research, analysis, and strategic thinking. Here are some tips to help you stay ahead of the competition.”

“Staying informed about the latest trends and updates is crucial to winning in fantasy sports betting. It is important to watch the latest news, updates, and trends in the industry. This can include keeping up with off-season moves, monitoring target leaders, and tracking average draft positions.”

One way to stay current is by subscribing to fantasy sports websites and podcasts. These resources can provide valuable insights and analysis to help you make informed decisions. Regularly checking player stats and performance can help you identify trends and make strategic moves.

Learning from Past Seasons

Learning from past seasons is another key to staying ahead of the game. Analysing past performance can help you identify strengths and weaknesses in your strategy. This can include analysing draft accuracy, strength of schedule, and playoff performance.

Another way to learn from past seasons is by adopting good habits. This can include setting realistic goals, creating a draft strategy, and regularly reviewing your team’s performance. Tracking trends from past seasons can help you identify patterns and make informed decisions.

Overall, staying ahead of the game requires research, analysis, and strategic thinking. By keeping up with trends and updates and learning from past seasons, you can increase your chances of winning and achieving championship success.

FPL Season 2023-24: Gameweek 15 preview

With gameweek 14, we have kicked off what’s going to be an action-packed December month of Premier League football. Including GW14, we’ve got no less than seven rounds of fantasy football joy and frustration waiting for us this month. We are now in the first period of quick turn-arounds, as gameweek 15 is set for kick-off on Tuesday evening, followed by gameweek 16’s kick-off Saturday at noon. Add to that the final rounds of the European group stages the week after next and you kind of get the idea of what fantasy managers are up against in the short-term. And soon after that, there is the infamous Christmas period…

First up is gameweek 15, starting with Wolves hosting Burnley tomorrow (Tuesday) at 19h30. That same day, current league leaders Arsenal visit new boys Luton Town and that’s not the only favourable fixture for FPL managers to keep an eye on this gameweek. Sheffield United, who were just hammered 5-0 by Burnley, host Liverpool on Wednesday, which should bring key Reds players on your scouting radar, if you don’t have three of them yet. Gameweek 15 offers the more neutral viewer some world-class fixtures as well, including in-form Aston Villa versus Manchester City, Spurs against West Ham, and of course, Manchester United versus Chelsea at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

Check out FISO’s FPL Forum for the latest discussion and don’t forget, the deadline for gameweek 15 is set at 18h00 (UK time) on Tuesday, December 5th, 2023.

Most transferred in/transferred out players (as per December 3rd, 2023)

GKAlisson (LIV), Pope (NEW), Turner (NOT)Raya (ARS), Dubravka (NEW), Ederson (MCI)Alisson and Pope injury doubts
DEFCash (AST), White (ARS), Andersen (CRY)Zinchenko (ARS), Trippier (NEW), Alexander-Arnold (LIV)Zinchenko returns, Alexander-Arnold back-to-back goals
MIDBowen (WHU), Diaby (AST), Mitoma (BRI)Gordon (NEW), Saka (ARS), Hee Chan (WOL)Aston Villa fixtures, Gordon (home) form
FORWatkins (AST), Nketiah (ARS), Alvarez (MCI)Isak (NEW), Cunha (WOL), Pedro (BRI)Aston Villa fixtures, Isak return from injury, Alvarez lack of returns

Premium pick

In gameweek 14, Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) both failed to score, but they still managed to match each other’s pace in terms of total attacking returns. The former got 2 assists against Spurs plus a yellow card for 7 FPL points, while the latter picked up a single assist without a yellow card for 5 FPL points. This shows that fixtures don’t really apply to these guys, though in our opinion, the smart money went with Salah at home to Fulham. Our thinking is very similar for GW15, when the Egyptian is visiting a battered Sheffield United side and Haaland will be traveling to Villa Park. Salah has now made it three consecutive league games with at least one attacking return, and a total of 10 goals and 6 assists in the Prem overall so far, and Liverpool face Sheffield United, who just shipped a surprising five goals at Turf Moor. If Zeki Amdouni can record an impressive 11-pointer, imagine what Salah can do on Wednesday.

Non-premium pick

In our preview for gameweek 14, we spoke about Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka (£8.8m), about him not scoring a league goal since gameweek 7 and about the fact that he still ticked along at an acceptable pace with 4 goals in his last five games. We also figured that his fixtures in GW14 and GW15 looked like a great opportunity for the England international to get his name back and on the scoreboard, and he promptly did just that. Saka needed just six minutes to get the Gunners off the mark and he ended up with 8 FPL points, thanks an added bonus point as well. As a result, we’re sticking with the Arsenal star for gameweek 15 when the Gunners visit Luton Town. With his fair share of penalty duties and set-pieces, we expect him to play another key role in keeping his side top of the league, especially now that he’s coming off an excellent performance against Wolves over the weekend. At his current price of £8.8m, he is still firmly in non-premium territory, but that might end soon if he gets another return (or two) on Tuesday.

The budget enabler

When looking at real budget enablers in the official fantasy game in the build-up to gameweek 15, it’s hard to look past Matheus Santos Carneiro Da Cunha, simply known as Cunha (£5.5m). After half a season on loan from Atletico Madrid last season, Wolves made his transfer permanent in exchange for about £45 million over the summer. The Brazilian youngster had a bit of a quiet start to the 2023-24 Premier League campaign in terms of fantasy returns, but he has been on fire of late. He got an assist against Spurs in GW12, followed by a goal against Fulham in GW13 and another goal against Arsenal in GW14. In other words, that’s three attacking returns in his last three league games for a total of 17 FPL points. Not bad for a forward who is currently priced at just £5.5m. It gets even better though, because on top of his current form, Cunha also has two favourable fixtures coming up. Tomorrow it’s Burnley at home, followed by Nottingham Forest at home on Saturday. This places him amongst the stand-out budget fantasy picks, at least for the short term.

The differential

A couple of weeks ago, we mentioned Mohamed Kudus (£6.6m) as one of the differential fantasy picks to keep an eye on and the Ghanaian international did not disappoint since then. While it should be noted that he has been overperforming his Expected Goals ratio by quite a bit over the past few games, he did record an impressive 2 goals and 3 assists in his last four league games. He also seems to have conquered a spot in manager David Moyes’ starting eleven, which naturally helps his appeal as a differential fantasy pick with a current ownership of just 2.8%. Kudus has also got a decent run of fixtures coming up on the short term, with a visit to Spurs followed by a visit to Fulham and then a home game against Wolves. The former Ajax man is also listed as a midfielder in the official game, which means that he gets an additional FPL points per goal, plus an extra point for every clean sheet recorded by the Hammers.

The (vice-)captaincy

Our captain in gameweek 15 will be Mo Salah, who has been in good form of late, ahead of the visit to Bramall Lane. After their 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Burnley in gameweek 14, the Blades boast the leakiest defence in the league with 39 conceded goals in 14 games.

Of course, the first alternative to Salah as captain is Erling Haaland, despite his challenging away game against currently fourth-placed for Aston Villa. Other (more than) decent options for the armband include Bukayo Saka away at Luton, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and even the seemingly inevitable Ollie Watkins at home against Manchester City.

Casino Bonuses Explained: Understanding the Different Types of Promotions Offered by Online Casinos

Navigating the world of online gambling can often feel like a maze, with numerous paths leading to an array of choices. Amidst this labyrinth, promotions and bonuses stand out as significant markers, guiding players towards potentially rewarding experiences. In the realm of the best online casinos UK, these bonuses serve not just as incentives but also as a means to enhance the gaming experience. Understanding these offers is crucial for both newcomers and seasoned players alike, as they can significantly impact one’s online gambling journey.

Welcome Bonuses: The First Handshake

A welcome bonus is essentially the first handshake between a player and an online casino. It’s a way for casinos to greet new players, usually in the form of extra funds to play with or free spins on slot games. This bonus is often a percentage match of the player’s initial deposit, up to a certain amount. For instance, a 100% match bonus up to £200 means if you deposit £200, the casino will give you another £200 to play with. However, it’s important to read the terms and conditions, as these bonuses often come with wagering requirements.

No Deposit Bonuses: The Free Trial

No deposit bonuses are akin to a free trial offered by online casinos. They allow players to try out games without the need to deposit any money. This type of bonus is particularly appealing to those new to online gambling who wish to test the waters before committing their own funds. Typically, these bonuses are smaller in amount and may come with stricter wagering requirements.

Free Spins: The Slot Lover’s Favourite

Free spins are a dream come true for slot game enthusiasts. Offered as part of welcome packages or as standalone promotions, free spins provide players with the opportunity to spin the reels of popular slot games without using their own money. Winnings from free spins often come with wagering requirements, so it’s crucial to understand these before playing.

Reload Bonuses: Keeping the Game Going

Reload bonuses are designed to keep existing players engaged. These are similar to welcome bonuses but are offered on subsequent deposits. They keep the excitement alive for regular players by offering extra funds or free spins on further deposits. Like other bonuses, these come with their own set of terms and conditions.

Cashback Offers: A Safety Net

Cashback offers act as a safety net for players, providing a way to recoup some of the losses incurred while playing. Typically, a casino will offer a percentage of the lost bets back to the player, either as cash or as a bonus with its own wagering requirements. This type of bonus is especially appreciated by players who frequent the casino.

High Roller Bonuses: The VIP Treatment

For players who play big, high roller bonuses are the way to go. These bonuses cater to those who make large deposits and bet big. They often come with more relaxed wagering requirements and higher limits, suiting the playing style of high rollers.

Loyalty Programmes: Rewards for Regular Players

Loyalty programmes are structured to reward regular players. Through these programmes, players earn points for playing games, which can then be exchanged for bonuses, free spins, or even cash. The more one plays, the more points they accumulate, leading to higher levels in the loyalty program and better rewards.

Understanding the Fine Print

It’s not just about the type of bonus but also about understanding the fine print. Wagering requirements, game restrictions, time limits, and maximum bet sizes are all crucial factors to consider. Players should always read the terms and conditions to ensure they fully understand the requirements of each bonus.

In conclusion, promotions and bonuses are pivotal elements in the online casino experience. They offer additional value and excitement but come with their own rules and requirements. Understanding these different types of bonuses is essential for anyone looking to enhance their online gambling experience, whether they’re taking their first steps into the world of online casinos or are seasoned players looking for the best offers.

Building the Perfect Team: How To Correctly Analyze Player’s Stats to Build Your Fantasy NFL Team

Image Source

As a fantasy football enthusiast, you know how time-consuming it can be to decide who should be your next pick on your team.

Whether you’re in the early stages of building a competitive squad or just trying to fill out empty spots on an already well-rounded roster, selecting the right players from week to week is essential.

But with so much statistical data available, it can often become overwhelming and confusing – where do you start?

In this blog post, we’ll break down our tips and tricks for dissecting player stats correctly so that you have all the information necessary to create the ultimate fantasy football team!

Understanding the Key Metrics

  1. Yards Per Carry (YPC): Yards Per Carry, or YPC, is a key metric for evaluating a running back’s effectiveness. It measures the average distance a player gains per rushing attempt. A higher YPC indicates higher efficiency and, thus, a stronger player.
  2. Catch Rate: Catch Rate is crucial for wide receivers and tight ends. It calculates the percentage of targeted passes a player successfully catches. A player with a high catch rate is more reliable and can significantly impact your team’s scoring potential.
  3. Player Efficiency: Player Efficiency considers a player’s entire performance, factoring in their position, scoring, and overall contribution to the team’s success. A highly efficient player is a valuable asset to any fantasy team, indicating they can perform well in different scenarios and contribute significantly to the scoreboard.

Considering Player Health and Fitness

When building a fantasy football team, it’s vital not to overlook the health and fitness of the players. Regardless of their stats, an injured player might not contribute to your team’s success. Regularly check the injury reports – these are usually updated daily during the season.

It’s also essential to understand a player’s performance post-injury. Keep track of FanDuel NFL odds to gauge a player’s potential performance when they return to the game after an injury. It’s a common misconception that players will perform at their peak immediately after recovery.

However, they often need time to regain their former momentum and return to their pre-injury performance. Hence, monitoring performance after an injury can provide valuable insights into your team-building strategy.

The Importance of Consistency

When we discuss consistency, there are two main aspects: weekly and seasonal. Weekly consistency refers to a player’s ability to perform at a high level from game to game consistently. A player with high weekly consistency is reliable and can be dependable to score points each week. On the other hand, seasonal consistency looks at a player’s performance throughout the entire season.

It’s essential to balance your team with reliable players in the short term (weekly consistency) and those who can deliver excellent performance throughout the season (seasonal consistency). Therefore, when analyzing player stats, don’t just look for players who have had a few standout games. Instead, focus on those who consistently perform well, as they are more likely to provide a steady flow of points.

Evaluating Team Dynamics

Each NFL team has unique on-field chemistry, which can significantly impact a player’s performance. Always consider the overall strength of a player’s actual team and how well they work together. Are they known for their offensive strategies or their defensive tactics? Do they have a balanced approach or sway heavily in one direction? For instance, a wide receiver’s performance can often be linked to the quarterback’s skill and the offensive line’s effectiveness in protecting the quarterback and creating opportunities.

One specific dynamic to consider is the relationship between a team’s quarterback and offensive line. The offensive line’s performance can significantly influence the quarterback’s time to execute plays, ultimately impacting the success of wide receivers and running backs. A robust offensive line will allow the quarterback to find more opportunities to pass the ball or make strategic moves, benefiting the team’s stats.

Additionally, analyzing how a team’s offensive strategy evolves throughout the season can give you an advantage in selecting players likely to increase in value over time. Some teams might start the season heavily relying on the run game but gradually shift towards a balanced or pass-heavy strategy as the season progresses.

Understanding the Impact of Game Conditions

Weather conditions like heavy rain, snow, or wind can affect the players’ ability to run, catch, or throw the ball effectively. It can also lead to more fumbles and interceptions, significantly impacting a player’s stats. For instance, a quarterback or a wide receiver may have diminished performances in adverse weather conditions. At the same time, a running back’s value might increase due to the team’s increased reliance on the ground game.

Another crucial factor to consider is the ‘home-field advantage.’ Historically, teams perform better when playing at their home stadium, likely due to familiarity with the field and encouragement from home fans. Thus, players might have better statistics during home games than away games.

Putting It All Together for Your Perfect Team

FPL 2023-24: Gameweek 14 preview

The FPL gods had fun last weekend, that’s what it feels like when looking at the Gameweek 13 Team of the Week. No player boasts an ownership of more than 15% at the time of writing and that player is the much-criticised André Onana. Besides him, no less than four players are owned by less than 0.5% of all managers: Bournemouth’s Marcus Tavernier (no one scored more than his 16 FPL points) and Justin Kluivert, Fulham’s Willian and… wait for it… Manchester United’s Anthony Martial. Another three members of the GW13 Team of the Week sit in less than 5% of all FPL squads, those being Man United’s Diego Dalot, Luton’s Teden Mengi and Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White. Probably the most actively popular player who made it into the team was Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon, who recorded 13 FPL points for the roughly 14% of fantasy managers who owned him.

We can see a couple of highly owned assets returning to the Team of the Week in gameweek 14 though, as the likes of Arsenal, Aston Villa and Liverpool are facing favourable opposition this weekend. The Gunners open the weekend with a home game against Wolves, Villa are visiting Bournemouth and Liverpool welcome Fulham to Anfield. On top of that, Manchester City have a home game against a Spurs side that has lost some of its early-season form. Gameweek 14 is also going to be a big one for the teams towards the bottom of the league, with Everton visiting Nottingham Forest and Burnley hosting Sheffield United on Saturday.

Check out FISO’s FPL Forum for the latest discussion and don’t forget, the deadline for gameweek 14 is set at 13h30 (UK time) on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023.

Most transferred in/transferred out players (as per November 30th, 2023)

Premium pick

As far as the premium fantasy pick for gameweek 14 goes, there is practically no looking past Mohamed Salah (£13.0m). The Egyptian forward is back at it again this season, having scored 10 goals and provided 5 assists in thirteen league starts so far, and his recent form is red hot as well. He bagged a brace at home to Brentford to clinch the Player of the Week honour in gameweek 12 and then went on to provide the assist for the goal against Man City last weekend, in a game that ended 1-1. Up next are Fulham, who are having a decent first half of the season so far, but who we nevertheless can’t see getting much from their visit to Anfield on Saturday. The Cottagers have conceded an average of just under two goals per away game up until now, which will be like music to the ears of Salah. With Haaland facing Spurs on Sunday, Mo is looking like the stand-out captain for gameweek 14 even with Spurs’ current defensive issues.

Non-premium pick

It has been a fair few gameweeks since Bukayo Saka (£8.8m) scored a goal in the Premier League, as his last one came back in GW7 versus Bournemouth, but that doesn’t mean the England international has been entirely quiet of late. A total of 4 assists over his five league starts since then kept him ticking along quietly, recording 26 FPL points over that run. At his current price of £8.8m, an average of about 5 points per game is somewhat underwhelming, but look at it this way: he’s still involved, he’s still a starter and Arsenal are still top of the league after thirteen rounds. On top of that, Saka has his share of penalty and set-piece duties, and his upcoming two opponents qualify as “favourable” on paper. On Saturday, the Gunners host Wolves and three days later, it’s time for a visit to Luton Town. As far as we’re concerned, a perfect little run for Saka to get his name back on the scoreboard.

The budget enabler

When Andy Robertson got injured a few weeks ago, the Liverpool roster offered us Kostas Tsimikas as a great (short- to medium-term) enabler, and now the Reds are doing it again. That is, if you’re willing and able to make a short-term move for a real bargain goalkeeper. With first-choice goalie Alisson Becker out for at least two gameweeks, according to manager Jurgen Klopp, and possibly more, his back-up Caoimhin Kelleher (£3.9m) can help you free up some funds. Liverpool are amongst the more solid defences this season, having conceded 11 goals in thirteen games so far. An even bigger factor for considering a move for Kelleher though, in our opinion, is the upcoming run of fixtures. As we wrote just above, Kelleher should be between the Liverpool sticks for two to three league games at least, which means he will be there for the visit of Fulham this weekend, and the away games against Sheffield United (in GW15) and Crystal Palace (in GW16).

The differential

When recommending Bukayo Saka as our non-premium fantasy pick for gameweek 14, we mentioned Arsenal’s upcoming favourable fixtures, first at home to Wolves this weekend and then away at Luton next Tuesday. Seeing as Gabriel Jesus (£7.8m) got his first start against Brentford in GW13 after missing three consecutive league games due to injury, we want to highlight the possibility of getting to a potential major differential pick early. The Brazilian has not had a great season so far, as injuries have prevented him from recording more than a single goal and assist up until now, but when fit, he should be part of manager Mikel Arteta’s starting eleven. At the moment, Jesus is sitting in just 2.4% of all fantasy teams in the official game, which has put him firmly on our differential radar. He’s not cheap, but if you’re looking for a player to help you catch up in your mini-league, bringing in the Brazilian attacker, who got on the score sheet during the week in the CL drubbing of Lens, could be a shrewd move.

The (vice-)captaincy

Both Mo Salah and Erling Haaland are playing at home this weekend, so you can expect the captaincy discussion to be dominated by these two powerhouses once again. Seeing as Salah is facing Fulham, while Haaland faces Spurs, we have gone with the former, but in reality, either one could deliver a big double-digit haul this weekend.

If you’re looking for a Fantasy Sports Betting option outside of the usual two suspects, Bukayo Saka at home to Wolves could be a good choice, as could Bryan Mbeumo at home to Luton. Ollie Watkins could also deliver the goods when Aston Villa play Bournemouth on Sunday, if you feel like punting on a proven goalscorer with an away game on the agenda.

AS Roma vs Sheriff Tiraspol preview, team news, tickets & prediction

AS Roma will welcome Sheriff Tiraspol to the Italian capital for their final group game of the 2023/24 Europa League season. After a slow start to the season generally, Roma has been able to find some results, while Sheriff is the whipping boy of this group. 

Jose Mourinho’s side played out a 2-2 draw with Salernitana in their Serie A opener before suffering back-to-back defeats to Hellas Verona and Milan. One thing was clear at the start of the season for the capital club: they needed to get their missing back on the pitch in order to be able to compete again, which they did.

Influential forward Paulo Dybala returned from his injury, and the attack had a bit of direction and purpose as he showed his class upon his return to the side against Empoli at Stadio Olimpico. The World Cup winner was everywhere in that contest and went ahead to score two goals; his combination with Romelu Lukaku left the opposition defenders uncomfortable throughout the fixture. That result lifted the mood around the capital club, and they were able to rack up a couple of wins afterward.

Roma started their Europa League campaign against Sheriff Tiraspol, and they came away with a 2-1 win. Lukaku scored for the second game in a row to help his side secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season. Following that performance in Europe, Roma went ahead to play out a 1-1 draw with Torino as Lukaku scored for the third game running. However, Mourinho’s men were brought down to earth courtesy of a 4-1 bashing at the hands of Genoa, but they recovered from that match to beat Frosinone 2-1 at home.

It was then four consecutive wins after that home win as they defeated Servette 4-0 to record their second successive win in the Europa League this season. Wins over Cagliari and Monza got them going in the Serie A once again before they humbled Slavia Prague 2-0 in the final game of the opening round of the Europa League. The Gilarossi ended the month of October with a loss to Inter Milan at San Siro before scoring two late goals against Lecce to begin November with a win.

In their match day four clash with Slavia Prague, Rome suffered their first defeat in Europe, but they are still expected to progress alongside the Czech side into the round of 32. However, Mourinho will be hoping his side can finish top of their group and avoid playing extra games in the next round.

Meanwhile, Sheriff Tiraspol hosted AS Roma on match day one of the 2023/24 Europa League season. It ended in a home loss then, and the campaign could have been more pleasant for them as they are not expected to progress.

Although the Moldovan champions were the league and cup double last campaign, they started their journey to Europe in July due to the UEFA Champions League qualifiers. They labored past Farul Constanta (3-1 on aggregate) in the first round before being dumped to the Europa League by Israeli side Maccabi Haifa (4-2 on aggregate).

In the topflight league, Luvannnor’s solitary strike earned them an opening weekend win over Petro Club to kickstart the new season. The First Europa League game was next against Bate Borisov at Stadionul Sheriff, which ended in a 5-1 home win. The return leg ended in a 2-2 draw as they marched on to the final qualifying round.

Back-to-back league wins over Sparta Selemet and Dacia Buiucani followed before they picked a draw at Klaskvik in the first leg of their final Europa League qualifier. The first defeat of the season was handed to Sheriff by Milsami, but they recovered in time to beat Klaksvik to book their spot in this season’s Europa Group Stages.

While they cruised at home in the league, things could have been better in Europe as they have only been able to rack up just one point from their opening four games so far. They have lost their two previous away games in the group, and that might be the case again when they go to Stadio Olimpico. 

It will be recalled that AS Roma played in the final last season, where they lost to Sevilla on penalties. With that in mind, they are one of the favorites to win the competition despite their initial poor start to the season.

On paper, the Italians have a better squad and have enough experience in this competition to outfox their visitors, who are just making a second successive appearance in the Europa League.

Match tickets

The epic match at Stadio Olimpico in Rome kicks off on Thursday, 14th December, at 6:45 PM UK time, and it will be shown live on TNT Sports, with coverage starting from around 6 PM.

This is a match-day six clash between the former Europa League finalists and another team on their way out of the competition. European football is fast becoming a regular in the capital since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, and the 72,698-capacity stadium will be a special venue for Sheriff fans who will be at the game. 

Getting tickets for the AS Roma vs Sheriff Tiraspol match tickets could take a lot of work, given the standard of this game and the stage of the competition. Hence, you are advised to search ticket reselling sites should they be expectedly sold out on each club’s channels. 

Team news


Jose Mourinho’s side have blown hot and cold throughout this season going forward. Dybala and Lukaku, who have been contributing to the goals in recent weeks, are expected to continue to lead the line. Meanwhile, striker Tammy Abraham and Marash Kumbulla are expected to miss the visit of the Moldovan side.

AS Roma: Patricio; Mancini, Llorente, Ndicka; Kristensen, Cristante, Paredes, El Shaarawy, Spinazzola; Dybala, Lukaku.

It is already done and dusted for the Sheriff; they will just be in Rome to enjoy themselves. However, the likes of Rasheed Akanbi, Moussa Kyabou, and Vinicius Paiva are long-term absentees.

Sheriff Tiraspol: Koval; Zohouri, Garananga, Tovar, Artunduaga; Fernandez, Kik; Ricardinho, Henrique, Badolo.


Roma should not have any problems winning this contest. Although they have been largely inconsistent this campaign, they will still desire to end the group stage with a win before the knockout begins in 2024.

Three past meetings (including the first-leg defeat to Roma) have seen Sheriff Tiraspol walk away without a point, and that might just be the case in this final group game.
