  • What is the best make up of a top PB player ?

    Is it more to do with how the team plays eg lots of passes high base score or just goals/assists

    Lots of passes... lots of crosses... Set pieces...

    Wing Backs get the added bonus of a clean sheet but still pick up lots of assists, crosses they also make tackles and dribble... then when it comes to the end of the night, if the team is winning, they'll often pass it to their wingback to keep the ball out of danger. This means they end up with lots of passes. Winning teams have a huge swing in points over losing teams too, so obviously pick players on teams that win often.

    Fixtures are important too. Players who play frequently on weird nights, are likely to have fewer people to compete with.

    Look at the team and how they play. Earlier in the season, whoever the CDM was playing against West Ham was picking up tons of PB, because West Ham were playing counter attacking football, just letting their opponents keep the ball, passing it from CDM to LB, etc.



  • There are all sorts of factors in play... Keep a printed off copy of the PB matrix at hand, and trawl through stats on whoscored.. You can look at all of the leagues, and click on a stat to list the players in order of who has the best / worst in each league...

    For forwards ideally you want the type that are involved in play around the penalty area (Messi, Neymar, Dybala etc) as opposed to ones who just stick it in the onion bag (unless playing for IPDs)...

    For mids there are a few options. You can look for metronome types who rack up big base scores due to high distribution... Then there are the creative types who can accumulate a lot in and around the box for key passes etc. They are quite often on set pieces, and they can accumulate a fair few points of the back of this...

    Defenders it is a mixed bag. The general impression is that full backs are better performers, but I believe the stats show that fullbacks won 56% vs 44% for CBs... Again, look for players that have high passing so they can rack up good base scores, ones that cross a fair bit etc...

    When a team gets a new manager, I quite often look into that new managers style of play in comparison to the old one.. It can throw up new opportunities, especially if they are the ball retention high pass type of game... Hope this all helps..
