Picks and transfers the veteran managers made this week compared to sample of top 100k (GW7)


Regular feature to compare the picks of 2026 FPL veterans against a sample of about 10k teams from the top 100k. Any team in my sample of top 100k which hasn’t made a transfer in last 3 weeks gets excluded. Funny week but maybe interesting Determination of who is a veteran manager at: https://www.reddit.com/r/FantasyPL/comments/wrqq06/veterans_for_veteran_analysis_20223/ / Watch out for companion post: How did veterans perform and which players made a difference The 2026 veterans made 1978 transfers this GW. 0 ( 0%) played their wild card. ( 10.4 % have now played WC) For the picks comparison, I have filtered out the low ownership (but high ratio > 1.5 ) players (threshold is 2%). If you don’t see a player below then it will be because there is not enough ownership or the ratio is not big enough. But you should be able to see all players in the googlesheets pointed to by the links
