Ignoring price changes
Jahangirov has developed as an FPL manager en route to becoming the world No 1, learning valuable lessons.
“The one thing I did really change in my game was pretty much ignore the squad value and price rises, because it was pushing me towards really, really rushed moves and transfers," he says.
“The most valuable asset you can have in FPL is information. So as long as you're well-informed on your team news, [such as] players that are injured or likely to start, I think that's the most powerful asset you can have.”
A superb captaincy record was also key to Jahangirov's success.
“[Captaincy is] absolutely crucial because if you end up captaining the wrong player, you're basically losing 10 to 15 points each Gameweek, and on average that's a lot of points at the end of the season,” says Jahangirov.
“It's a huge part of the game because, depending on the effective ownership, you have to pick your captain. If you're chasing, go for a different captain that could really boost your rank. If you're just protecting rank, don’t overthink it, just go with the popular pick. [The] captaincy pick really defines your strategy.”
