In this post, I take a look at 2 samples: randomly selected 20,000 FPL teams and the top 10,000 FPL teams as of the start of the gameweek. Because of the law of large numbers, we can make inferences about the overall FPL league based on the statistics for the random sample.
I’ve also added interval estimates for most statistics for the whole FPL game. If you’re familiar with the concept of confidence intervals, you can point at a specific number characterising the random sample to see 99% confidence intervals for the respective number characterising all the 3 million FPL managers.
