Suggestion: Can you please keep the previous weeks' Dreamteam, along with the actual score, for the entire week leading up to the following gameweek? Example; show gameweek 1 predictions, then after gameweek 1 passes, keep gameweek 1 Dreamteam overall score visible, but then also show gameweek 2 predictions.

It's frustrating looking at Dreamteam predictions for a gameweek, then coming back one day after that gameweek ends and I never get to see what the Dreamteam actually did because the new gameweek predictions have already gone up.

Fantasy Overlord

Yep, good suggestion, just need to get around to actually doing it. Hoping to do so in the coming couple of weeks.

I came here just to type this. I just opened up a spreadsheet to keep track of how well his predictions actually do.

Hi,

I don't know if this is a site hosting thing or a Google Chrome thing but the "rate my team" feature no longer works. I get a message that says "You've got an Ad blocker running. Disable it for this site in order to rate your team." When I disable the adblocker I still get the same message!

It's a shame because this was an awesome site!

I'm having the same issue. Even when I disable all my browser addons, close, then reopen the browser I'm still getting the disable adblocker message.

Thanks for letting me know, out of interest do you see any ads when you see this error message? Could you email me a screenshot?

For DGW34:

1) Otamendi, Hazard, Sanchez, Barnes, Son

OR

2) Chilwell, Salah, Kane, Son/Alli, Lingard/Mata

Hi Overlord,

Do you have datasets for past seasons, FPL 2015/16, 2014/15, etc..??

Del

HI,

Now that January is upon us, so too comes a new wildcard. Is it possible to have an option for this when using Rate My Team?

Thanks,

Del

Hi, nice site! Just wondering about the 'Average Points' column in the csv files you provide. I'm assuming it's intended to yield the PointsPerMatch statistic that can be found on the FPL site, ie. TotalPoints/Appearances. For most players this is the case, but for some it suggests they've played 33 matches (in the 17-11 dataset) from a possible 11. (e.g. Aguero 8.4 correctly reflecting 67pts from 8 apps, but Afellay 0.06 not correctly reflecting 2pts from 3 apps, or Adam 0.03 not correctly reflecting 1pt from 1 app). Is this a bug or am I misinterpreting something?

Thanks for your time. (tried to email, but getting a bounce with Relay Access Denied error message)

Fantasy Overlord

Thats a bug, thanks for letting me know. The bug was around handling averages taking into account multiple games in a single gameweek, but it was doing it wrong. Luckily this bogus value wasn't used for the rate my team functionality.

I'll get the email situation fixed too!

Fantasy Overlord

Email is now fixed, thanks for letting me know!!

James

No problem, thanks for the reply

Hey, Overlord, just bumped on your site, and looks amaziing...I am a new player, this is my first season, and since experienced with excel , I did something similar to your using excel...

I extracted data stack from the site, but what I miss is data stack in a form of proper DB , i.e. each entry to be one GW KPI so to see all players per GW, not just combined...

Another thing I would add to predictions is previous years data, do you happen to know where they keep stack of those data?

Thanks...

Fantasy Overlord

Hi,

I dont think the FPL site keeps last years data available. I have some data in the History page.

The weekly breakdowns of player stats over the course of the current season is available from the FPL site. Just put a network trace on Chrome when you look at a players history to see the request.

Cheers

Script

Sorry, I meant throughout the *season...

Fantasy Overlord

Good idea, I have been meaning to do this.

Script

Even more interesting would be to use a team that follows the fantasy football rules like single gameweek transfer and the other tokens throughout the season. Another shot of seeing how the algorithm performs by actually playing the game

Fantasy Overlord

Hi Script.

This is the point of the Beat The Overlord league. I have a team in there that is each weeks recommended transfer and captaincy's.

Cheers

Script

Please create a link showing your dream team predictions throughout the week to allow us guage the true power of the algorithm

Andy

Can the Dreamteam include the next n games forecasted? Rather than just the next game week?

Jean-Pierre

Thanks very much for this great application that you make available. One issue I experience is that new players to the league score 0 points. This is especially an issue when '*rating my team*'. Are you planning a solution to this issue?

Scotty

I agree, It's a bit of a pain.

I am a big fan of some of the new players to the league, especially Chicharito for West Ham.

Will this remain on 0 until the season starts and data is generated against the player?

Have your say
