Sweeping the Floor: Examining EPL Fantasy Point Distributions on DraftKings

This article is part of our Sweeping the Floor series.

We're now eight weeks into the Premier League season and on an international break, which seems like the ideal time to take stock of what we've seen from all 20 Premier League teams.

In addition to players who do well individually in terms for floor points (total fantasy points minus goals, assists and clean sheets), it's always good to see if they're actually playing for a team that scores a lot of points, or if they just happen to take up a big piece of a small pie (or are a big fish in a small pond, whatever annoying cliche you prefer).
