Introduction At the start of last season, I wrote an article about the limitations of the Official Fixture Difficulty Rating (FDR) tool and proposed an alternative FDR tool based on team Elo ratings. Fixture Difficulty Rating: An Alternative. Ahead of season 2019/20 I want to look back and see if the Elo FDR outperformed the... Continue Reading →

Season 1920 GW15 Review

I did not have time to write a preview this week and was not keen on writing a review. It is a lot easier to write about fantasy football when my team is doing well! Review In the last two game weeks, I brought in two defenders from teams which this week, kept clean sheets.... Continue Reading →

Season 1920 GW12 Preview/Review

Review Above average and a 190k green arrow. However, I feel the team has too many players who do not start for their respective teams.

Most of the points came from the defenders.   Captain The captain decision did not make a difference as both scored 2 points. Salah’s injury is affecting his game time and performance, as he was ineffective and... Continue Reading →

Four Game Week Comparision

I am a big advocate for five at the back. At the start of the season, many other managers also played five at the back. As LIV and MCI failed to keep clean sheets, slowly but surely these managers drifted away from this radical formation. I am not having the best season, which is reflected... Continue Reading →

Season 1920 GW10 Preview/Review

Review The game week started well with Vardy’s hattrick in the 0-9 demolition of SOT. Then on Saturday, it all turned to crap.Otamendi did not play and MCI kept a clean sheet. KDB missed out on a goal when after review it was awarded to Silva. To be fair, the ball did touch Silva's foot!... Continue Reading →
