There is an 80% correlation between FBM team score and the rank a team has in their league. That is a very high correlation. But it would not be impressive if FBM team score would be calculated with team results as one of the inputs.
Yet, we do something completely different: FBM team score is calculated by a formula that only uses individual statistics of players in the starting XI. These individual stats are:
- Player Overall Contribution
- Player Attacking Contribution
- Player Defending Contribution
- Player Transitioning Contribution
- Player Reliability
Based only on those five stats, we calculated the following ranking based on the average FBM team score for the 2018/2019 season:
|Team||Average FBM score||Current Eredivisie Rank|
To be clear: these score are calculated based on stats that look like this in a contribution chart:
Update 17-4-2019: As it is highly likely that if there is a correlation between average FBM team score and league rank that there is also a correlation between average FBM team score and the amount of points a team has scored, we looked at that as well. And there the correlation is even higher, namely 90%!
|Team||Average FBM score||Points|
