Player ownership is an important part of Fantasy Premier League.
It can be used to determine how popular, and often good, a player is.
Generally speaking, a player with a high pick percentage will be a strong asset for your team.
However, there are of course examples where lower picked players are better picks. These are known as differentials.
While pick percentages are a great guideline, a more popular metric is FPL effective ownership. This shows you ownership while taking into account the number of managers who have captained and triple-captained a player.
Fantasy Premier League Pick % – Live Data Table
The above table, by default, is sorted by the players with the highest pick percentage. That means whoever is currently highest will be displayed top.
The data is live so it will be frequently changing. You can also sort by name, team name, and position from a to z and vice-versa as well.
Additionally, there is also the option to filter. So, if you want to display Chelsea players only, go to the drop-down box at the bottom of the team column and select Chelsea.
Often, FPL managers will be searching for a player from a particular position, too. In that case you can do exactly the same thing at the bottom of the position column.
The table displays 10 results but this can be changed to 25, 50 or even 100 entries by clicking in the top left-hand corner.
Alternatively to see more than 10 results just flick through the pages located in the bottom right-hand corner.
Finally, if you're looking for a specific player, just search their name in the top-right.
FPL Pick Percentage Importance
Looking solely at high pick percentage players will give you a very good indication of the players you should own.
This is commonly referred to as a template team. However, using only these assets will mean you'll miss out on potential differentials.
If you're happy with a decent rank, then using players from the top of this list should give you a respectable overall ranking.
To go one further though, and push the illustrious top several thousand places, you'll need to take some risks. This is how you differentiate yourself from the crowd.
Unless you find a gem, which for one reason or another isn't already popular, then there is a natural risk incurred.
Finding a player that high-ranking managers haven't got is a great way to give yourself an edge. Conversely, it can often do the opposite. Pick wisely!
