EPL Boxing Day Tips: Time to grab the best prospects

   Did you know that we will facing EPL Boxing Days in December? If yes, you are good. If you don't know, you are good too because you are reading the correct article. We will reviewing the fixtures in more details with few potential prospects and strategies to facing the boxing days.

   This weekend we will facing game week 13, after that during month of December we will have 6 game weeks. If including the game week 20 in the second January, we have total combining 7 game weeks. So from 7 game weeks if we projecting the points to get a minimum 50 points per week, we will have 350 points from one month.

   A lots of points to be grab in only one month, during the normal month we only had 3 game weeks per month. So we need a good plan and understand what the coaches will do during this busy period, rotating some of the key players for sure. If the coaches do the rotations for the key players, than we as Fantasy Managers will losing points. So the first strategy is to reducing the number of players that are on the risk for rotations in our fantasy team.

Why the coaches rotating the players? There are few reasons:
  1. The fitness of key players don't get recovered on time because the gap between the game week are too short.
  2. Big squad or many good replacements are available if the key players can't playing.
  3. Participation in other competitions than EPL(Champions League, Europa League, and others).
   So we can conclude that the big team with big squad are likely to do rotations for their key players and small team with a small squad are rarely to do rotations for their key players. Other than that, we also need to pay extra attention or minimize the number of players with low fitness and also participate in other competitions than EPL.

   It also good if we have all playing players in our substitutions bench during this busy period to covering the first 11 players. To looking for the best prospects, as usual we will referring to the difficulty table that already complete with the team performance calculations and fixture comparisons.

   The "Attacking" performances are related to the ability of team to score goals in home or away games. The "Defending" performances are related to the ability of team to avoid conceding goals in home or away games. For better understanding "Attacking" is goals scored(GS) home and away games, and "Defending" is goals against(GA) or goal conceded(GC) home and away games.

   Lets take a look at the best prospects for next fixtures and also during the boxing days. For the boxing days potential points, it will be calculated starting from game week 15 until game week 20. The numbers on the right side of the difficulty table is very important numbers to differentiating the potential between the team.
