Top 20 Fantasy Premier League Players in 2012-13 Private League

During the 2012-13 Premier League season, 4,259 of you participated in the private Fantasy Premier League game. During the beginning of the season, our mini-league was in the top five best performing leagues world-wide, but as the season progressed, we dropped out of the top five — understandably so, since the mini-league certainly takes a lot of time, persistence and dedication to ensure you don’t miss a single gameweek.

Thank you to everyone who played in the league. Here’s the final table, which features the top 20 best:

Also, thanks to David Yaffe-Bellany for his series of articles recounting his adventures in the Fantasy Premier League throughout the entire season.

The 2013-14 Fantasy Premier League season will open up in July, so we’ll post an article on this site when the registration for the new season opens up.

    Here’s a thought (not specifically about this fantasy league, but fantasy leagues in general)…

    If the stats produce a “team of the season” that is completely unfeasible as an actual team (i.e. a 3-man defence of one CB and two full-backs, and a four man midfield consisting solely of wingers/very attacking playmakers), is there something flawed in the way the system is judging players?

    I assume the system splits players into just three categories – Def, Mid or Fwd – and that’s why we get results like this. I wonder if it’s possible to run a fantasy league that divides players up into more nuanced specialties(i.e fullbacks, CBs, Defensive mids,#10s, etc etc). Of course, that idea has it’s drawbacks too, since many players might fall into multiple categories. But it’s just a thought.
