Everyone in Fantasy Premier League heard about the data and analytics revolution and realized that the landscape is changing rapidly, but not everyone has time to keep up with the news. We are here to bring you the latest and best about data, analytics, Moneyball approaches to FPL, how it works, advantages, pitfalls, and more. Bas, the eye-test manager, and Sertalp, the analytics manager, compare their notes and talk about FPL from two different angles.
Bas and Sertalp have a special guest during the International Break: Brett Taylor (FPLEchidna on Twitter), who finished #3 in the world last season. Brett answers Bas and Sertalp's questions about his play style, what he thinks about data, and how his football history helps decision making.
Bas is already on wildcard, Sertalp is considering to delay until GW9. This week's main topic is wildcard: how to compare plans and their expected values, how to pick players, what we think about some of the confusing questions. Have a green arrow and nice International Break everyone!
