Player Values and Scores FAQs 

Why does everyone go on about break-even?

Break-even is the score that a player needs in his next game, to maintain his current price. Break-even is an important stat as it’s an excellent indicator of the likelihood a player’s value will rise or fall.

Are break-even scores accurate?

Break-even is the most-accurate estimate of likely upcoming score(s), however, due to the complexity of the pricing formula and it’s dependence on the results of all matches and all player performances, break-even may occasionally differ from the actual score required to break even.

What are player score projections?

Projected scores are just what they say on the label - projected scores for the upcoming rounds. If a player’s projected score for any of the next three rounds is coloured green, it means that the projected score for that week is above their three-round average by 10% or more, whereas the colour red indicates that the projected score is lower than their three-round average by 10% or more.

How are projected scores and projected price changes calculated?

We calculate projected scores using our confidential proprietary formula, which includes various factors including the player's most-recent performances, their direct performances against their upcoming opponents and their past performance at match venues. These are re-calculated each week to ensure the very latest data and trends are incorporated.

Projected price is calculated using the player's projected score to determine the approximate price they will be valued at in the next round if they achieve their Projected Score.

Are the projected scores and price changes accurate?

Score and price projections are based on a formula that takes into account historical performance and other factors that will help to provide an accurate estimate of what should occur in future games.

These projections are estimates only and can be affected by factors such as whether or not the player plays the full game, an injury, weather conditions, if the player is fulfilling a different role for his team or the player simply goes off or stinks it up for a particular match.
