Draft EPL Tiered Rankings Cheat Sheet 23/24 V4

Our Fantasy EPL 23/24 Draft Kit continues to be the most comprehensive set of pre-season Draft Premier League articles ever produced! Obviously, our Draft Rankings will be one of the most featured parts of the Draft Kit, but for those of you who prefer not to use a 1 to 150 ranking system when rating players, we're here to help! Our Tiered Rankings Cheat Sheet will walk fantasy managers through the benefits of using tiers when drafting, how to best make use of this cheat sheet, and how to personalize it should you want to tweak any of our player valuations. By the time draft day rolls around, you will have an entirely unique draft cheat sheet and a leg up on the competition.

Keep in mind: these tiered rankings reflect Fantrax Default Scoring, which does differ from Official FPL scoring. Though, we'd like to think that these tiers could be helpful to most drafters this summer regardless of scoring.

What are EPL Draft Tiered Rankings?

Below, you will find a link to the Tiered Rankings document. Before you check it out, there are a few things to be aware of when using tiers when drafting, as opposed to using a numerical list from 1-150+. There are also a couple of things to be aware of regarding the document itself, which will also be explained briefly. It will vastly improve your ability to effectively and strategically use the tiers document if you consider these quick points.

How to Use Tiers

Let us first provide a couple of pointers to explain the use of a tiered system as opposed to a numerical rankings system.

  • In theory, a drafter will be willing to pick any player from within a certain tier during the draft. You need to be willing to draft all players from within a given tier at the same point of the draft. If Saka, Grealish, and Odegaard are in the same Midfielder tier, it means you don't mind which of these players you end up drafting.

  • A tier 1 DEF is not necessarily as valuable as a tier 1 MID or FWD. It's important to understand that a tier is simply a measurement of the perceived value of each player as compared to the rest of the players at their position. So, don't compare tiers across the positions.

  • However, tiers can help you to see when a certain caliber of player at a certain position has dried up, potentially prompting you to draft a player at another position in a higher tier. This, to be completely honest, is one of the most valuable insights that using tiers can offer.

  • Finally, feel free to customize your Tiered Rankings Cheat Sheet as you see fit. However, moving players around inside an existing tier (moving a player up or down, but keeping them in the same tier) is largely pointless. This is because the tiers themselves indicate that every player within that tier is perceived to have approximately the same season-long value. So, if using the tiers as intended, any player from that tier would suffice.
