The top five keepers to avoid in fantasy football according to stats

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Joe Hart and Simon Mignolet are among the worst performing goalkeepers in the Premier League this season and Oulala.com have the stats to prove it. If you've got them in your fantasy football team, get them out... now! 
Saves per goal conceded is by far the best way to analyse how well a goalkeeper has performed. Other stats such as clean sheets, goals conceded and saves are generally influenced by the quality of the defence a keeper has in front of him or the overall strength of his team. However, saves per goal conceded is the clearest way to measure a keeper's performance on an individual basis as it represents how a keeper has responded when called upon.

Jack Butland has statistically been the worst performing goalkeeper in the Premier League so far this season. The Stoke City man has made 26 saves in 11 appearances, conceding 22 goals, an average of 1.18 saves per goal conceded. 
West Ham's Joe Hart sits second in the list of keepers to avoid in your fantasy football team. On loan from Manchester City, Hart has made 37 saves in 14 appearances and has conceded 30 goals, an average of 1.23 saves per goal conceded. 
Liverpool's Simon Mignolet (1.28), Huddersfield's Jonas Lossl (1.38) and West Brom's Ben Foster (1.55) complete the top five Premier League goalkeepers to avoid in your fantasy football team. 

So there it is, the worst performing Premier League keepers this season. It's probably wise to avoid any of these five when you pick your Oulala fantasy football team this weekend!
