Professor M's Numbers: Week 32 Best Team

Well, that was a pretty "meh" week for me. It started with me not saving my team, even though I am 99% sure I had, and thus keeping Oscar, Demichelis, and Chester rather than having Sessegnon, Alonso, and S. Reid. In the end, I actually got 2 more points because of this (15 to 13), but that was only enough to get me 88 points for the week. Not downright horrible, but enough to drop me 110 places in the Global rankings from 453 to 563.


If I could just use my crystal ball, I might be able to see what I would be typing later and know the best team BEFORE it happens. This week's best team could have netted you 267 points!

Best Team

The best formation this week was the traditional (at least fantasy-wise) 3-4-3. For the second week in a row, you could not have fit this team in the yahoo budget, but it was just over at £152.49M. The top Yahoo player got an even 200 points this week, good for about 75% of the possible top score

One note on the bench this week. Normally I include all players, no matter they position, who scored as high as the lowest scoring player in the Best XI. This week, however, the third best defender (Flanagan) only scored 14 points, which would have made for a rather large bench. So instead, I included all players scoring at least 16 points who could not find a place in the Best XI on the bench.

Keats and Yeats List

We have many changes to the Keats and Yeats list of multiple appearances this week. As a reminder, this list includes everyone who has appeared in the Best XI (bench not included) at least three times since I started tracking this in GW10.

Appearances Player
9 L. Suárez (GWs 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 23, 28, 31)
5 A. Lallana (GWs 11, 17, 21, 23, 24)
4 D. de Gea (GWs 16, 19, 27, 29)
4 D. Sturridge (GWs 23, 26, 27, 31)
4 J. Rodriguez (GWs 14, 18, 29, 32)
4 M. Skrtel (GWs 11, 25, 28, 31)
4 R. Lambert (GWs 11, 24, 30, 32)
4 S. Gerrard (GWs 23, 26, 28, 30)
4 W. Rooney (GWs 13, 29, 31, 32)
4 Yaya Touré (GWs 10, 14, 27, 31)
3 Adrián (GWs 21, 23, 26)
3 C. Eriksen (GWs 18, 20, 31)
3 E. Adebayor (GWs 17, 22, 26)
3 E. Hazard (GWs 14, 18 24)
3 J. De Guzmán (GWs 11, 28, 32)
3 J. Flanagan (GWs 16, 28, 32)
3 J. Hart (GWs 19, 30, 31)
3 J. Puncheon (GWs 20, 22, 23)
3 J. Shelvey (GWs 12, 14, 23)
3 Jose Fonte (GWs 23, 24, 26)
3 K. Nolan (GWs 19, 24, 25)
3 L. Baines (GWs 20, 21, 31)
3 M. Diamé (GWs 13, 26, 32)
3 P. Bardsley (GWs 11, 17, 24)
3 S. Caulker (GWs 10, 29, 32)
3 T. Walcott (GWs 16, 18, 20)
3 V. Mannone (GWs 18, 24, 30)
3 W. Szczesny (GWs 10, 13, 22)

Debuts on the list this week include De Guzmán, Flanagan, and Diamé (really? that surprised me). Joining the select group that has appeared at least four times are Jay Rod, Lambert, and Rooney. Finally, Lallana distances himself from the pack with his fifth appearance, second only to Suárez's nine.

So there is your Best team for this GW. Can you decide who will appear next week? I am not sure if i will have time for any more numbers this week, but at least you have this.
