    • Yeah, plenty of dead teams and a lot of active teams decided not to bother taking hits in order to field 11.
      0.66 players may come in for top 10K as autosubs at best (will be less in reality, probably 0.5 or even less). So, an average top10K team will field slightly less than 10 players (out of 11) by the end of the gameweek.
      Overall sample is just a horror show.

  1. How easy would it be to calculate the people in each sample with the most transfers / most hits? Or a range saying x% of people in each sample took 0 hits, y% took 1 hit, z % took 2 hits and w% took more than 2 hits. Probably not that interesting in most weeks, but for ganeweeks with either doubles or blanks, would be interesting.

    Should also say that your analysis is excellent. First place I come after the games are finished. Keep up the good work.

    • A hit means making a transfer that is not free, costing -4 points.

      Each new gameweek you are credited 1 free transfer. The maximum you can carry over is one, making a maximum total of 2 free transfers in any one gameweek.
