FPLH Picks & Their Parameters

As you all know by now, each FPLH writer has a GW pick that is promoted on Twitter and/or on this blog prior to each Gameweek.  I am responsible for #HotPick, #Punt and #Reject.  Matej picks #CalledIt, Walt picks #JackInTheBox and Fly picks #FlyBuy.  The parameters are outlined below.

#HotPick:

Parameters: 

None (but primarily a midfielder or forward)

Definition: 

A player that I think will be score or assist during the Gameweek.
In the event that the #HotPick is a GK or DEF we would hope for a clean sheet.

Minimum Targeted Success Rate: 
70%

#Punt:

Parameters:

Not from a Top 3 team.
Primarily a midfielder or forward.
Ideally a player with less than 10% ownership.
The player can be re-used as a #Punt later in the season.

Definition:

A player that I think is under-rated but could score or assist during the Gameweek.
In the event that the #Punt is a GK or DEF we would hope for a clean sheet.

Minimum Targeted Success Rate: 
60%

#Reject:

Parameters:

None

One to avoid. A player that I think will bag less than 3 points during the Gameweek.
