GW 12 Intermediate Results 2

GW 12 Results – Sunday

Two great games today, let’s see what impact they have had on the world of fantasy football.

SUMMARY

  • One game left, autosubs and vice-captaincy are yet to kick in, but the average score is already 50 points! The highest average of this season was 63 points in GW1 (it was a double gameweek) followed by 57 points in GW9. Can this week beat the record? There are 2 players left to play per average team, so probably not. But the second best result of the season is possible.
  • The average for the top 10K teams is higher, but they have almost finished scoring points this week. Only 2.2% haven’t had their captains play yet, the vast majority of which (2.0%) captained van Persie. As we’ve seen in the ‘Team Selection’ post, almost 15% captained van Persie in the overall league.

AVERAGE POINTS PER TEAM BY LINE IN FORMATION

  • An average of 40 points for strikers in the top 10K looks simply surreal. Having 3 heavy hitters upfront seems absolutely essential at the moment.
  • This week was always supposed to be tough for defenders as most popular picks were facing tought opponents, and the worst apprehensions have been fulfilled.
