In a similar feature to last year, we’re sharing with you who is this week’s most likely point scorers based on an algorithm we’ve created. The points are based on a player’s chance of scoring once, twice, three times a lady…. No sorry, just once and twice. As well as that we add defensive player’s clean sheet points and whether they’re expected to start or not. The variables for starting are ‘Yes’, ‘No’, and ‘Rotation’. With Yes giving a player 2 points, No 0, and Rotation 1. The points are taken from our Clean Sheet Gameweek 18 and Goalscorer posts which were shared earlier this week. Using this information we’ll help you choose your captain for Fantasy Football in game week 18.
A midfielder will naturally get more points for scoring, as will a defender, while a forward only gets 4 points. This can often lead to a midfielder with 50% chance of scoring (50% x 5 = 2.5) ending up with a higher expected point tally than a forward with 60% chance of scoring (4 x 60% = 2.4).
1. Mohamed Salah – 7.58 points
Mohamed Salah is a massive leader this week with over 1 point more than any of his counterparts. Will he start though?
2. Sadio Mane – 6.08
3. Harry Kane – 6.01
4. Anthony Martial – 5.94
Differential – Jesse Lingard 3.96
Only the table this week due to Christmas and family taking priority. Sorry.
Without further ado, we will give you who is The Bookie’s Captain for Gameweek 19.
