UCL Fantasy Season 2021/22 Review

The 2021/22 season of Fantasy Champions League is now over. It was a fantastic ride with a great finale. 

Season recap

  • It was a season where balls recovered did not play such a significant role as in two previous seasons. 
  • Chip strategy was extremely important – it was important to use your chips in the groups stage, where we had a low team value, so especially limitless wildcard was important there
  • Premium forwards (Lewandowski, Benzema) was top scoring players, which shows, that we must focus on premium forwards when picking players into our UCL Fantasy team.
  • Captaincy = very important as well = you should focus on big players against easy opositions

  1. I think it might be because the number of ball recovery is hard to model quantitatively – it seems to have no correlation with the strength of the team. I tried to build a mathematical model initially but gave up after not able to recognize any pattern.

    1. Thanks for the insight! That’s very useful. I would like to learn more about your research. Would you be interested in writing an article about your research regarding balls recovered? I think many other managers would appreciate that 🙂

      1. Sure, would love to, although the article will be more like reflecting on failed attempts than a success story, lol

        1. Thanks! That’s okay, I still think that it is going to be exciting reading for fantasy football managers that rely on stats and statistical modeling 🙂 Feel free to send me the article to sulanmatej(at)gmail.com . Also, you can include your author bio, if you want 🙂

          1. I just shared the article I wrote in Google Doc with your email. Let me know if you receive and can open it
