Foomni Power index

Each player is indexed in seven categories, for their form, threat, influence, consistency, usage, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Player's Power index is then made out of basic indices.

Foomni indices

We use six different categories to index a player's performance. They cover both short-term and long-term form and value. These six indices are then used to make a player's Power index - the best metric of player's current performance level. Click on each index to learn more about it.

Power index

Power index is the ultimate foomni player rating. Players with high Power index are doing well in several categories, and they should definitely be on your watchlist.

This index tells us how viable player is right now, and can fluctuate a lot between gameweeks. In the table below, you can see change compared to the previous gameweek. If you want to inspect development of player's Power index more closely, you can go to that player's page and see changes throughout the season.

We calculate this index by combining other seven indices, and taking their average value. Average value of 80 would mean Power index of 99.

Influence index

Influence index tells us how important player is for his team's points scoring. Players with high influence are those who score a large share of their team's points.

High influence means that the player is the talisman of his team. If you expect that team to play well next gameweek, he might be a good transfer choice. High influence players from top teams are usually those who are must-own in FPL.

Players who score 25% or more of their team's points (only team points in games they played count here, and 'team points' are excluded, e.g. clean sheets and points for minutes) have maximal Influence index of 99.

Points-per-minute index

Points-per-minute index helps us determine how efficient player is. Players with large PPM are those who take their chances well.

High PPM can be a good indicator that player is super-sub - he doesn't play much, but when he does, he has the ability to turn the games around. Regular starters with high PPM are generally must-own players in FPL.

Players who on average score more than 5 points per 90 minutes, not including appearance points, have maximal Points-per-minute index of 99. Please note that here we take minutes spent on the pitch, not games played.

Usage index

Usage index is the best indicator of how much player actually plays. Players with a high usage rate are generally starters who rarely get injured.

Usage rate is best used combined with other indices. For example, if the player has high Influence and/or PPM combined with high Usage, you should probably consider transferring him in!

This index is essentially the share of minutes player spent on the pitch of all the minutes available to him this season, at this club. A transfer to another club in the league resets this counter. Player who played every minute available would have Usage index of 99.

Consistency index

Consistency index is used to detect players who are good at scoring points week in, week out. Players with high consistency are those who can be trusted to rarely go blank.

A consistent player can be someone who regularly scores high points, but also those useful budget players who can be relied upon to get assists here or clean sheet there.

To calculate consistency, we take scoring events: goals, assists and bonus for everyone, clean sheets for defenders and goalkeepers, penalty saves and regular saves (at least six!) for goalkeepers only. Player who had at least one scoring event in at least 80% of games played would have Consistency index of 99.

Heat index

Heat index is great for finding players who are on fire! These guys scored a lot of points recently, and you should have your eye on them.

Players in good form are those you might want to bring in for immediate gains, be it point scored or more money in the bank when their value invariably rise soon.

We calculate this index by weighting player's points from the last five games. Heat index of 99 would roughly mean that player scored five goals in that period.

Points-per-pound index

Points-per-pound index measures is the player cost-effective or not. Players with high PPP are the ones that give best returns for their value.

FPL is balanced in a way that top players generally have very steep prices, so the best PPP ratio is actually found among relatively cheap players who are scoring good points. PPP could be of great help in finding cost-effective budget players.

PPP is calculated by dividing player's points per game played, but not including appearance points, with his value. Player who would over the course of 38 games have 20 points scored per pound of value would have Points-per-pound index of 99. This is adjusted for the games actually played.


Threat index is used to identify players that recently often found themselves in position to score FPL points. High threat means that player regularly shoots on goal, creates chances for others or runs tight ship at the back, in case of defenders.

The threat is calculated by taking total shots on goal, shots on target, total crosses, successful crosses and key passes from the last five games. Clean sheets are also factored for defenders, while they are the only factor for goalkeepers. The high threat doesn't necessarily mean that player often scores or assists, but merely that he is often in a good position do to so. It is best used combined with other indices, like Heat or Consistency.

Threat index of 99 means that player on regular basis shoots on goal or create chances for others multiple times per game.
