Gameweek 16 in Review

A bit of a mixed bag this week. I’ve had final exams to distract me from my one true priority, the downwards spiral of my team. On top of that, my computer was finally brought to its knees after eight years of loyal service. This week was a good one in fantasy though, with 65 […]

Gameweek 15 in Review

A terrible gameweek. I was truly punished this week, for keeping the faith in once ‘reliable’ assets. All the hard work of my last three weeks of green arrows was undone as I finished on a paltry 46 points, 3 below the overall average. This led to a 140k drop all the way down to […]

Gameweek 10 in Review

Finally, my luck has turned and some joy has returned to my life. Gameweek 10 was a banger, with a huge amount of my players, including some of my differentials, going off like a rocket. I finished this week with a huge score of 72 points, which sliced my overall rank in half! I’m now […]

Gameweek 8 in Review

I never enjoyed football or FPL anyways. Think I might get really into cricket now. Things have not gone well this week, even for my standards. I managed to rack up 34 points, which left me with a -125K red arrow, back down to rank 659,806. The week was already not looking good when De […]

S├ębastien Haller or Tammy Abraham

As we enter the international break, there is an abundance of high flying forwards to tempt managers, among these are the two similarly priced options S├ębastien Haller (7.5) and Tammy Abraham (7.2), both of which have hauled for two consecutive Gameweeks leading up to the break. With great fixtures on the horizon for both of […]

Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford

Anthony Martial (7.7) and Marcus Rashford (8.5) are the two key players when it comes to scoring goals at Manchester United, and when they’re on form, they’re quite a force to be reckoned with. While the form of Utd as a whole has been somewhat off recently, the underlying stats are fantastic and suggest they’ll […]

Gameweek 4 in Review

Yikes. A bad week with a score 5 below average and a significant red arrow (-177k). Main culprits this week were Sterling and Martial, who did not manage to return to fitness and play, forcing me to play Lunny for the 3rd consecutive week, this time against Chelsea. Another shocking United performance also saw Wanny-B […]

Gameweek 3 in Review

Gameweek 3 was full of ups and downs. My first red arrow of the season, although just a very small one (down by 15k). This week was also my first hit of the season, as I took a -4 to bring in De Bruyne, Wan-Bissaka and Pukki in for the three sons: Sigurdsson, Robertson and […]

Gameweek 2 in Review

This week contained some highs and some lows, but getting 59 points and a large green arrow has significantly lifted my spirits. Now at a much more respectable rank of 123,574 , the upwards climb must continue. Another big disappointment from Liverpool has me questioning my triple up, but I’ll be giving them another chance […]

Gameweek 1 in Review

After a (brief) 5 month hiatus from the ffdeepdive project, I am finally back and ready to go for the new season! I’ll be holding off on any statistical analysis until Gameweek 2 has come and gone as one week is too small a sample size to determine anything. From now on I’ll be evaluating […]
