Professor M's Bargains and Busts: Week 1

Week 1 took a while to finish, but I was curious to look at who provided the most points for cost, and who cost the most if you chose them. If you chose a bargain you did well, and a bust really hurt you.

The top 15 players on a points per £ basis for Week 1 are below. The runaway best bargains this week were Barkley and Welbeck, although you could have found others.

Rank Player Team Cost
Pts Pts/£
1 R. Barkley Everton 1.99 19 9.55
2 D. Welbeck Manchester Utd 6.11 30 4.91
3 Joe Cole West Ham United 6.55 19 2.90
4 S. Whittaker Norwich City 7.61 21 2.76
5 J. Ward-Prowse Southampton 3.35 9 2.69
6 S. Mignolet Liverpool 11.07 29 2.62
7 A. Boruc Southampton 4.85 12 2.47
8 P. Kasami Fulham 6.29 15 2.38
9 M. Stekelenburg Fulham 5.98 14 2.34
10 R. Soldado Tottenham Hotspur 7.24 16 2.21
11 J. Livermore Hull City 1 2 2.00
12 H. Lloris Tottenham Hotspur 8.87 17 1.92
13 A. Luna Aston Villa 7.09 13 1.83
14 M. Maiga West Ham United 2.3 4 1.74
15 S. Coleman Everton 11.5 20 1.74

Just missing the cut were Begovic, Lampard, Lovren, Etherington, and Silva.

Since the busts all have negative points, instead of dividing points by cost, I multiple points by cost and then to give a bit of a closer feel to the above rankings I divided by 5. The bottom 15 are below. The big busts for Week 1 were Koscielny, Vorm, and Szczesny. They would have cost you a decent amount and returned significant negative points.

15 T. Howard Everton 9.7 -1 -1.94
14 Fernandinho Manchester City 6.29 -2 -2.52
13 M. Schneiderlin Southampton 14.29 -1 -2.86
12 A. Lallana Southampton 14.79 -1 -2.96
11 T. Cleverley Manchester Utd 7.67 -2 -3.07
10 M. Turner Norwich City 10.51 -2 -4.20
9 Y. Sagbo Hull City 7.24 -3 -4.34
8 D. Marshall Cardiff City 5.98 -4 -4.78
7 K. Westwood Sunderland 5.98 -5 -5.98
6 Steven Taylor Newcastle United 6.46 -5 -6.46
5 D. Berbatov Fulham 16.29 -2 -6.52
4 Derek Boateng Fulham 6.29 -7 -8.81

2 M. Vorm Swansea City 8.99 -8 -14.38
1 L. Koscielny Arsenal 11.07 -9 -19.93
