By The Numbers: EPL Game Week 14 Stats

Fredrik.J steamrolled the €20 Weekly Monster with 3 teams in Top-7, winning almost €7,000 euros this weekend. Negarex triumphed in the €2 main-event and took home more than 500 euros.  Read our weekly analysis of the Premier League tournaments on FanTeam to be on track with daily fantasy sports in Europe.

€2 buy-in, €6,500 GPP

The €2 tournament with a GPP of €6,500 recorded 3,254 (-2.7%) entries last game week.

Negarex topped the rankings with only 3 entries thanks to Palace's defensive stack and gorgeous attacking picks with only Maddison failing to record substantial returns. Alli and captain Son became the icing on the cake helping to create a 3-point lead over Mose Jourinho.

The aforementioned user with a lovely pun-of-a-nickname captained the second-best player of the round - Dele Alli. Mose Jourinho was excellent at choosing attacking differentials (Sissoko, Grealish and Zaha) and despite a lack of clean sheets also got three assists from defenders.

TOP-5 IN THE €2 BUY-IN, €6,500 GPP

1. Negarex – €502.50 (87.5 points)

2. Mose Jourinho – €314.81 (84.5)

3. Stivlik – €229.50 (84.0)

4. oblivion714 – €180.75 (83.5)

5.  MeowMeow– €149.20 (82.5)

 

There was a threshold of 56 points (5.1 average per player) in the tournament for the minimum ITM (in the money) of €1.40 (€3.31 during Gameweek 13).

It is crystal clear that Negarex is the most efficient player of the week in the €2 Weekly Monster. It is worth to note that oblivion714 finishes in Top-5 two weeks in a row.

 

TOP-5 IN €2 BUY-IN, €6,500 GPP (ALL ENTRIES)

1. Negarex  – €566.97 (3 entries)

2. Mose Jourinho – €280.6 (60)

3. Stivlik – €215.82 (17)

€20 buy-in, €50,000 GPP

2,286 spots were filled in the €20 tournament with a GPP of €50,000 (-1.4%). Fredrik.J was among 0.6% who had a strong belief in Dele Alli before the round and the Spurs midfielder didn't let him down. Southampton and Crystal Palace picks crowned him champion of the main tournament this weekend. The second best this week TTriBL was not lucky with captaincy, giving Salah the armband. Apart from this decision, his team had all to become the best. Not this time, apparently.

TOP-5 IN €20 BUY-IN, €50,000 GPP

1. Fredrik.J – €4,741.08 (87.5 points)

2. TTriBL – €2,850.65(86)

2. Stivlik – €2,040.46 (84)

4. Fredrik.J– €1,590.36 (82.5)

5. TacoCatOP – €1,303.93 (81.5)

 

There was a threshold of 56.5 and 5.1 points per player to get a minimum payout of €30.54. 


Fredrik.J was by far the strongest player this Gameweek pocketing almost 7,000 euros at once. 3 teams in Top-7 and 14 ITM is a fantastic result for a single player.
