For the 2016-17 I made a concerted effort to track my fantasy football team applying the optimisation techniques that I had discussed in an earlier post. Around February or March I waned but at that time I had resigned myself to mid-table (at best) obscurity and in my own league with a few friends I came bottom, not a ringing endorsement.

Regardless I have looked at the optimal team for the start of this season and it is set out below.

Number Name Cost Total Points Team
1 Heaton  £       5.00 149 Burnley
2 Forster  £       5.00 134 Southampton
3 Cahill  £       6.50 178 Chelsea
4 Alonso  £       7.00 177 Chelsea
5 Azpilicueta  £       6.50 170 Chelsea
6 Daniels  £       5.00 134 Bournemouth
7 McAuley  £       5.00 131 West Brom
8 Alli  £       9.50 225 Spurs
9 Eriksen  £       9.50 218 Spurs
10 Snodgrass  £       6.00 133 West Ham
11 Capoue  £       5.50 131 Watford
12 Allen  £       5.50 118 Stoke
13 Firmino  £       8.50 180 Liverpool
14 King  £       7.50 178 Bournemouth
15 Defoe  £       8.00 166 Bournemouth

This season I am going to try and focus on form and predictive measures to help with my fantasy football team, namely trying to predict the results of the various Premiership teams using expected goals metrics
