Fantasy Football Substitution Tool
Some fantasy football games allow weekly substitutions (usually limited or a point deduction penalty). This is a great way of keeping interest in a fantasy league, but means a bit more work as a player. I thought rather than checking each week to see what teams had 'easier' or extra games, some automated tool could be of use. Hence the following substitution calculator.
Quick guide -
The weeks coming fixtures should be shown (premierleague fantasy game schedule used). Alter team weightings (if you wish) to current form/your thoughts of 'good' teams/league positions (low=better teams, high=worse teams - Default values based on last seasons league positions, promoted clubs being at the bottom). Click 'Calculate' to see what the tool reckons are good clubs to select players from.
|Gameweek 3||Gameweek 4||Gameweek 5|
|Huddersfield||Cardiff||Crystal Palace||Southampton||Man City||Fulham|
|Liverpool||Brighton||West Ham||Wolves||Watford||Man Utd|
|Watford||Crystal Palace||Man City||Newcastle||Wolves||Burnley|
Club weightings (low score better)
In depth guide -
The tool adds up, for each team, the difference of the weightings of the teams they are playing. This of course also takes into account if a team is playing twice (as there will be 2 additions per game week). So the highest scoring teams should be the teams you should be looking to have players from. Have only taken the next 3 game weeks into consideration at the moment, and im scoring teams 1-10. Dont know if that should be more of less, so lots of scope for improvement and refinement. My next thought is that perhaps teams playing at home should get a bonus.
