Tom, Nick and Anthony bring you FPL insight driven by data every week.

    WGTA S4 E28 – What kind of risk profile do you have?

    WGTA S4 E28 – What kind of risk profile do you have?

    This week, it’s our annual look at fantasy football manager risk profiles. We utilise hits taken by managers to try to categorise you all into categorise and talk about what that tells about about differing manager strategies going forward.

    The questions focus in on the big issue of the double gameweek – who do we posit at the key folk to buy ahead of the big DGW26, and give our thoughts surrounding this exciting highlight of the season.

    The correspondence also returns – for correspondence matters, get your questions in to whogottheassist[at]gmail[dot]com – courtesy of a great question from Mladen Kovacevic – on the eye test vs social media engineered FOMO!

    Back next Thursday after DGW26 comes to a close.

    WGTA S4 E27 – Why are Tom and Nick wildcarding?

    WGTA S4 E27 – Why are Tom and Nick wildcarding?

    This week’s quick turnaround pod covers Nick and Tom’s decisions to wildcard (alongside Anthony’s reticence!) – what are we doing with our wildcard? Who are picking and why? Lots of discussions ensue about key wrinkles around the players we’d be buying, our motivations to do so and what we’re aiming to do with it.

    The correspondence also returns – for correspondence matters, get your questions in to whogottheassist[at]gmail[dot]com – courtesy of a great question from FPL Racoon (Rishi) – on whether things have become harder over time, and how content creation has changed the game!

    Back next Tuesday after DGW25 comes to a close.

    WGTA S4 E26 – Does behavioural science have an impact on FPL? (with Simon March)

    WGTA S4 E26 – Does behavioural science have an impact on FPL? (with Simon March)

    This week, Nick and Tom are joined by former FPL Champ and LSE grad Simon March to talk about the impact of behavioural science on FPL.

    In a practically driven application of the theories behind this, we look at three key concepts in behavioural science:



    * Gambler’s/Hot Hand Fallacy

    * Loss Aversion

    * Satisifing vs Maximising in decision making



    And detailing how they apply to fantasy football management.

    Also in the Q+A, we look at chip strategies and DGW24 picks among other things.

    No Anthony this week due to illness, but Correspondence will be back next week. Email in: whogottheassist[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Back next week (to be arranged pending DGW timings).

    WGTA S4 E25 – Quickfire pod (again) 2/2 (GW22-3)

    This week’s quick turnaround pod covers the key questions among FPL managers coming out of Gameweek 22 via our Q+A.

    Alongside that, it’s the market forces, the mini league ranking and then the questions. This week’s questions give our view on the key questions on the week, such as how do we assess the 9-0, what are the implications of lotsa money and a strong bench, and what do we do with the captaincy in this weird period?

    We’ve skipped it over in this odd period, but correspondence will return – for correspondence matters, get your questions in to whogottheassist[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Back NEXT TUESDAY with ex FPL winner Simon March for a podcast about all things behavioural science.

    WGTA S4 E23 – Why might we bench the wrong players?

    WGTA S4 E23 – Why might we bench the wrong players?

    This week’s quick turnaround pod is a trailblazer in its correspondence-led visage. This time, we focus in on huge question focusing on Soucek gate – why might we bench the wrong players? It’s all about price. Accordingly, we look at the arguments surrounding that with behavioural science and the continued value of the big boys coming into the discussion.

    Alongside that, it’s the market forces, the mini league ranking and then the questions. This week’s questions give our view on the main on the button queries – what do we do with Chelsea? Are Everton and Leicester worth buying into? Is a City defender worth our captaincy?

    For correspondence matters, get your questions in to whogottheassist[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Back next weekend after the next Gameweek – another quick turnaround pod we’re afraid, but we hope we assist you nonetheless in those.
