3. Ownership of 10 Most Owned Players

Own

  • In the top 10K samples, 10 most owned players made up on average 6.8 players out of 12 per team (incl. captain twice). It is slightly higher than 6.6 a season ago (although it’s not entirely comparable as the starting period was missing last season).
  • In FPL in general, there was more variety. On average, 10 most owned players accounted for only 4.0 players per team, it is also higher than 3.5 last season.
  • To sum up, looks like FPL was a bit more template this season than a year ago.

4. Captaincy

How did the most popular captain choices of the top 10K perform?

Captain Efficiency

  • Frankly, not so good. Picking most popular captain each week would have brought you only 240 points (480 points if doubled), or 6.3 (12.6) points on average. In fact, only 3 times a player captained by more than 50% of top 10K teams produced double figure point hauls:

    • GW 14 – Sergio Agüero (16 points)
    • GW 28 – Harry Kane (15 points)
    • GW 36 – Sergio Agüero (23 points)

    On the other 16 occasions, players with captaincy rates of more than 50% failed to produce more than 6 points🙂
