It is important to know if a Premier League player delivered a good performance for their club or even scored a goal, assist or achieved a good fantasy football point’s return. As a Fantasy Football Manager you need to know if it is a sign of good form with strong points scoring potential in coming games or if it was luck with little chance of reoccurring! Sometimes poor performances can be covered up by an assist that bounces off a players shin or a terrible error by the opposition that is unlikely to happen again over the course of the season.
Such examples from last season include Benoit Assou-Ekotto getting an accidental assist for Spurs at Ewood Park and Andrey Arshavin scoring the winner for Arsenal at the Emirates against Swansea after the Swans goalkeeper Michel Vorm mistakenly threw the ball to the out of form Russian captain. The list goes on but after these high points scoring weeks both players gave managers who put their faith in them a very poor point’s return.
