Berbatov more productive than Rooney

F Dimitar Berbatov of Fulham :FUL: has been 25% more productive than his former teammate and super star F Wayne Rooney.

Earlier this season, ProFSL held its annual (and first-ever for soccer) Invitational - a championship H2H win-or-go-home tournament that award cash and prizes to the final four.  These tournaments are a lot of fun, but even with the best of scoring systems, managers need luck to advance since everything depends on winning one week at a time.  The scoring methodology we chose was H2H-points, but the point totals ended up being fairly volatile.  This led to the development of a standardized scoring system that would be acceptable for most H2H-points fantasy soccer leagues at ProFSL.

Well, looking back at that league and the player stats that we have as of November 16th, who are the top fantasy players in the league?

1) Van Persie, Robin :MUD: = 10.91 average
2) Mata, Juan :CHE: = 10.11 average
3) Suarez, Luiz :LIV: = 10.00 average
4) Berbatov, Dimitar :FUL: = 9.88 average
5) Fellaini, Marouane - EVER  :BeanTown : = 9.10 average
6) Ba, Demba :NUD: = 7.91 average
7) Rooney, Wayne :MUD: = 7.75 average
8) Dzeko, Edin :MCI: = 7.09 average
9) Cuesta, Miguel Perez :SWA: = 6.91 average
10) Defoe, Jermain :TOT: = 6.91 average

It is best to look at average fantasy points per game played.  Many teams have played about 11 games, and all of these players have been in 8 games, so the sample size is reasonable enough.  Any surprises here?  Anyone that you think will be on this list at the end of the regular season?

The reason for that is that Rooney has been playing Midfield since Van Persie joined. Plus, to be fair, Berbatov has been in fantastic form since joining Fulham.

    Today at 12:09:38 AM
  • RyanJames5: I can't figure out Houston either. Only thing that would make sense is if they're going to try to deal for Sale
    Today at 12:11:45 AM
  • chrisetc21: they signed Reddick, traded for McCann and signed Beltran, adding vets to a young team, Correa, Bregman, Springer, Altuve
    Today at 12:13:03 AM
  • chrisetc21: they had too many young players last year
    Today at 12:13:43 AM
  • chrisetc21: worst 1b and DH production ever last year
    Today at 12:14:33 AM
  • chrisetc21: AJ Reed and Jon Singleton flopped
    Today at 12:15:08 AM
  • chrisetc21: Tyler White came out blazing hot but then fizzled
    Today at 12:15:28 AM
  • Jonathan: Braves would have to give farm for Sale. Highly doubtful they do that.
    Today at 12:16:31 AM
  • chrisetc21: i doubt they trade for Sale, they think Francis Martes is a hoss
    Today at 12:17:00 AM
  • chrisetc21: Astros that is
    Today at 12:17:08 AM
  • chrisetc21: Braves are nuts if they trade for Sale
    Today at 12:17:28 AM
  • RyanJames5: The Astros have too many DH types though.
    Today at 12:19:40 AM
  • RyanJames5: They can't play everyone, hell they couldn't play everyone before Beltran.
    Today at 12:20:26 AM
  • chrisetc21: mccann/gattis at catcher
    Today at 12:21:47 AM
  • chrisetc21: spring/beltran/reddick in the outfield
    Today at 12:21:58 AM
  • chrisetc21: bregman 3b, correa, ss, altuve 2nd, Gurriel/Marwin at 1b
    Today at 12:22:29 AM
  • chrisetc21: marisnick off the bench
    Today at 12:22:47 AM
  • chrisetc21: castro, valbuena, rasmus gone
    Today at 12:23:32 AM
  • chrisetc21: it's an interesting team if pitching shows up
    Today at 12:24:08 AM
  • RyanJames5: Problem with that OF is no left fielder, and Beltran can't hold up a whole season in the OF. So he has to DH a fair amount of the time. So either McCann or Gattis sits then.
    Today at 12:26:05 AM
  • chrisetc21: Houston has a tiny left field
    Today at 12:27:10 AM
  • chrisetc21: with those crawford boxes
    Today at 12:27:21 AM
  • RyanJames5: And all of that is assume Reed somehow doesn't come to spring training with something to prove. Which would shift Gurriel to 3rd, Bregman to left and then you definitely have 2 of Beltran, McCann and Gattis on the bench.
    Today at 12:27:36 AM
  • chrisetc21: Gattis played it some last year
    Today at 12:27:54 AM
  • chrisetc21: Yep, if Reed starts to hit then they're in really good shape
    Today at 12:28:33 AM
  • RyanJames5: It seems like spending just to spend to me.
    Today at 12:28:34 AM
  • chrisetc21: i saw Reed play a good bit last year, he looked fat and slow
    Today at 12:29:13 AM
  • chrisetc21: slow bat
    Today at 12:29:23 AM
  • chrisetc21: hopefully Reed is in a cabin doing Rocky workouts this winter
    Today at 12:30:00 AM
  • chrisetc21: :o
    Today at 12:30:04 AM
  • RyanJames5: Haha. Could've been a lot of bad luck. .236 babip last year
    Today at 12:33:32 AM
  • ldsjayhawk: Got to be honest Luhnow ranks really low on my top GM list.
    Today at 12:35:01 AM
  • RyanJames5: I think he's done a nice job in the rebuild, but I just don't see this off-season as a success right now.
