I have alluded to aPoints before and the individual rankings through GW10 can be found to the right but I haven't ever fully explained what this rating shows.
Simply, it is my way to giving an adjusted number of points a player 'should' have scored, if injuries/suspensions hadn't occurred and every player had faced the same schedule.While this is admittedly somewhat absract as injuries and suspensions do occur, it is nevertheless useful as form and schedule are a better indication of future success than the fact that a player has missed time to date through injury.
If you lead this category then you will be, in my calculations, the best fantasy player over the course of the season if the current trends continue. 'Best' being defined as achieving the most points as opposed to the best value (which is dealt with by aPPMS).
I will continue to track this stat through the season and I like it as a key indicator of fantasy value to date. It can also be used to indicate future success by looking at the difference between aPoints and actual points scored. A high number indicates that a player is underscoring due to either a lack of playing time (such as Lampard) or a tough schedule (Tim Cahill). I will include these numbers on my new stats page once I work out how to best present it.
