FanDuel Fantasy Soccer: Key Stats for Lineup Building

If you are used to playing daily fantasy soccer on DraftKings, where crosses and attacking movements are key to scoring points, it may be best to try to forget all of it when building a lineup on FanDuel.

While there are a number of similar stats (goals, assists, fouls drawn, interceptions, tackles and shots on target) between the two sites, the value of each one is different, which means the stats we need to focus on for FanDuel lineups are different than for DraftKings. Click here for a full breakdown of the FanDuel scoring rules.

Shots vs. Shots on Target

DraftKings will award points for every shot taken and will give additional points for those that are on target (either goals or shots saved by the keeper). However, FanDuel only gives credit to the latter, which means the quality of shot is more important. Obviously you can't have a shot on target without taking a shot, but it's important to recognize who is more successful with their attempts. For example, Manchester United's Paul Pogba has taken 25 shots this season, a total 14 other players have eclipsed. However, only five of those were on target, and there have been 45 players with more this season.

Saves > Clean Sheet

The scoring differences between FanDuel and DraftKings also greatly affect goalkeepers, as DraftKings tries to emphasize winning keepers who do not allow goals versus those who may not win but make multiple saves. A clean sheet win on DraftKings is worth 10 fantasy points (five each for the win and shutout), and while a clean sheet on FanDuel is worth 10 points on its own (there are no points for a win), saves are worth three points each instead of two. Additionally, goalkeepers on DraftKings lose two points for every goal they allow, while it's only one point on FanDuel.

So, while you are more likely to be drawn to a goalkeeper on a favorite on DraftKings in the hopes of nailing down the 10 points for a clean sheet win, plus maybe four to six more points with saves, you're actually more inclined to take the opposing keeper on FanDuel.

For example, let's say Manchester City were hosting Hull City. Overall, this is a clear mismatch in favor of City, but from a fantasy goalkeeper perspective it may be the opposite. Even if City win 4-1 (let's be honest, their defense can't be trusted to shut out Hull at this point) but Claudio Bravo only makes one save, while David Marshall makes six saves, you're better off with the losing keeper. To put it simply:

Bravo: 2.0 fantasy points = one save (3.0 points), one goal allowed (-1.0)
Marshall: 14 fantasy points = six saves (18 points), four goals allowed (-4.0)

Many people talk about "paying up" for goalkeepers who are favorites on DraftKings, but on FanDuel you're actually paying up for an expected losing keeper.

Chances Created

A chance created is essentially a pass that leads to a shot. Arsenal's Mesut Ozil set the Premier League record for most chances created in a season last term with 146. He hasn't been nearly as effective this season in the category, but he's still a solid accumulator. This is a stat mostly for creative players, as the league-leaders through nine games are Dimitri Payet (30), Dusan Tadic (27) and Jason Puncheon (26). While those players do take corners, it's not a necessity for creating chances (you can see the list below).

Don't Forget Tackles

While creative players will get their fantasy points from chances created, don't forget about midfielders who rack up tackles, which may be worth only two fantasy points versus three, but they are easier to accumulate, as 137 players have picked up at least 10 tackles versus only 59 players who have created 10 chances. For example, while Payet's 30 chances created are worth 90 fantasy points, Idrissa Gueye's 44 tackles equate to 88 points. The key is finding players who do both, which will point you to names like Jordan Henderson (12 chances created, 35 tackles), Puncheon (26 CC, 21 TKL), Andros Townsend (15 CC, 22 TKL) and Joe Allen (12 CC, 35 TKL).

Key Stats

Here are a few stats that should help ease the transition to playing a brand new fantasy game. The below numbers show the positive scoring categories for outfield players and are their season-long numbers. We'll have a few more tips and tools in the coming days and week, but this should be a good start (note: the table is sortable):
