We Know Your First 3 Weeks Sucked, So Check Out These FPL Week 4 Picks, Predictions

Consider these picks if you want to turn your abysmal start to the season around.

Congrats, you made it through the week and it's time to forget about politics and global pandemics and gather around a true water-cooler topic: the Fantasy Premier League. I'm currently in the process of improving the current algorithm, and a fresh data-driven article about that will be out soon. I'm sure you're all thrilled with that news, so stay tuned. 

Nevertheless, I fed Game Week 3's data through the current point predictor, and here are the best bargains and worst picks for Game Week 4. (Check out last week's predictions here.)

This time, the data is in the format of: player name, position, team, predicted points, cost.
