Players Played per Team, Autosubs, Captains & Vice-Captains

In this section, I sum up my stats related to the use of full squad, bench, vice-captains, etc.

1. Players played (out of 12)

These stats showed how many players per team played (at least some minutes) in a given GW (after autosubs). Captains were counted twice as they bring double points – therefore ‘out of 12’.

Players Played per Team

  • Top 10K teams rarely failed to field 11 players, averaging 11.7 players during the observed part of the season.
  • An average FPL team could field only 10.8 players on average. All those dead teams with RvP(C) and poor benches were a major factor here.

2. Captains, vice-captains, and no captains

2.1. Average Breakdown

This diagram shows how often teams in the sample had their vice-captains play instead of captains and how often both a captain and a vice-captain failed to play.

Captains, vice-captains, no captains

2.2. Dynamics for top 10K samples

Captains - 10K

2.3. Dynamics for FPL in general

Captains - RS

3. Average gameweek points for captain, average gameweek points left on the bench, and average gameweek points received for automatic substitutions.
