Final 12 months’s factors, this season’s costs

For college kids of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) statistics, the latest worth reveals have enabled them to delve deep into discovering new methods to good their Gameweek 1 squads.

Right here, we’ll mix two in style stats into one quantity.

Factors-per-gameA participant’s complete FPL factors are divided by their variety of appearances.
WorthA participant’s complete FPL factors are divided by worth. On this case, beginning costs.

This could assist optimize the £100m price range past premium property like Mohammad Salah (£13.0m), Son Heung-min (£12.0m), Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m), Erling Haaland (£11.5m) and Harry Kane (£11.5m).

Though a golden piece of FPL knowledge normally advises managers to look ahead, somewhat than chase previous factors, let’s attempt to decide which 2022/23 gamers supply the perfect worth primarily based on their 2021/22 performances.

Final season’s PPG Worth

Utilizing final season‘s beginning costs and the information from our Premium Members Space, these are the gamers with the perfect points-per-game-per-million (PPGP£m) scores in 2021/22:

For instance, Joel Matip (£6.0m) took half in 31 matches and totaled 170 factors – a price of 5,484 per sport. Divide this by his £5.0m beginning worth and he is the one participant to exceed 1.00 for PPG Worth. It is no shock to see Joao Cancelo (£7.0m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) proper on the high too, while Trent Alexander Arnold is not held again by a £7.5m worth.

On the left are those that performed over 1,800 league minutes. By elevating this to 2,052 minutes (60% of the potential 3,420), the likes of Reece James (£6.0m) and Kieran Tierney (£5.0m) are eliminated, as seen on the appropriate.

That is fortunate on Ben Chilwell (£6.0m), who would doubtless take Marcos Alonso‘s (£5.5m) place on the listing had he not suffered a critical harm. Till then, his six outings introduced in three objectives, three clear sheets and a whopping 54 factors.

We are able to already see defensive domination, with three £4.5m goalkeepers sitting inside the highest eight. In the meantime, Jarrod Bowen (£8.5m) and Emmanuel Dennis (£5.0m) are the one attackers to succeed in the higher part.

Modifications for 2022/23

This solely intensifies now that the upcoming season’s costs have been launched. Discount attackers from final 12 months reminiscent of Bowen, James Maddison (£8.0m) and Bukayo Saka (£8.0m) have had a steep enhance in outlay, with Diogo Jota (£9.0m) and Kai Havertz (£8.0m) amongst these to now be categorized as forwards somewhat than midfielders.

Moreover, lots of final 12 months’s gamers have been misplaced to relegation or transfers overseas, affecting the likes of Dennis, Antonio Rudiger and Sadio Mane.

One other mitigating issue is that Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m) and Richarlison (£8.5m) have switched Premier League golf equipment over the summer season. Whereas Jesus has left a squad position at Manchester Metropolis to doubtless develop into the focus at Arsenal, the reverse might be occurring to Richarlison. For them, the final marketing campaign’s points-per-game information is due to this fact irrelevant.

This season’s PPG Worth

Now we check out PPMG£m utilizing this 12 months’s costs.

Matip’s numbers have been so sturdy that the next £1m rise hasn’t knocked him down, though it is a shock to see Tierney so excessive. His 22 introduced 11 clear sheets and 4 attacking returns however he was overshadowed by much-owned teammate Aaron Ramsdale (£5.0m).

As soon as these beneath 60% enjoying time are eliminated, it leaves a trio of Liverpool names on high. A giant speaking level of worth reveals was the drop of goalkeeper Alisson from £6.0m to £5.5m, who now presents a real budget-saving complement to Alexander-Arnold or Robertson.

A handful of those main names are prone to stay averted. Sergio Reguilon (£4.5m) could not attain 2,052 minutes and that is earlier than Ivan Perisic (£5.5m) arrived, while Marcos Alonso (£5.5m) continues to be linked with a transfer to Barcelona.

Additionally, in objective, each Martin Dubravka (£4.5m) and Vicente Guaita (£4.5m) have competitors from new signings Nick Pope (£5.0m) and Sam Johnstone (£4.5m).

In fact, saying that there’s extra worth in protection is not information to anybody. So let’s particularly have a look at midfielders and forwards.

Midfielders and Forwards

Up entrance, it was a foul season in FPL and the numbers again this. The 2 best-value forwards – Dennis and Armando Broja – have been solely there due to a £5.0m beginning worth, with one leaving by way of relegation and the opposite returning to mum or dad membership Chelsea. Second greatest midfielder Conor Gallagher (£6.0m) can also be again in west London.

Stated Benrahma stays at £6.0m. Though two objectives and two assists within the first pair of video games rapidly noticed him acquire recognition, it simply as swiftly died out. What could have been ignored is that – whereas colleague Bowen developed into vital asset – Benrahma did proceed to be pretty productive regardless of managed minutes.

From Gameweek 19, the Algerian worldwide registered 5 objectives and three assists from 11 begins.

Elsewhere, the powerful early fixtures awaiting James Ward-Prowse (£6.5m) and Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) signifies that FPL managers could as a substitute deal with mason mount (£8.0m), James Maddison (£8.0m) and considered one of Brentford’s forwards.


Factors per million per sport is, in fact, a primary route into FPL workforce worth.

We won’t simply create a workforce of FPL property primarily based on ‘PPGP£M’ as we’ll inevitably find yourself with an enormous wad of unused money within the financial institution, attributable to the truth that Salah, Kane et al will battle to function within the above tables. Worth Over Alternative Participant (VORP) takes this to the following stage and is one thing that has been written about at size by our clued-up neighborhood through the years.

Nevertheless it’s a good place to begin for making a rudimentary comparability of, say, two gamers of the identical place and worth: Robertson and Cancelo, for instance.
