Some Matchplay statistics

The draw's not until next week, so I don't intend on doing any huge reams of analysis until that's done as a minimum (and certainly won't be recommending any bets until after PC19/20 the midweek before the event kicks off), but for now, some things that might be of interest - firstly the FRH rankings of all players who are in the Matchplay with minimum money applied:

1 Michael van Gerwen
2 Rob Cross
3 Michael Smith
4 Gary Anderson
5 Gerwyn Price
6 Daryl Gurney
7 James Wade
8 Nathan Aspinall
9 Peter Wright
10 Ian White
11 Dave Chisnall
12 Mensur Suljovic
13 Simon Whitlock
14 Jonny Clayton
15 Adrian Lewis
16 Joe Cullen
17 Darren Webster
18 Stephen Bunting
19 Max Hopp
20 Jermaine Wattimena
21 Steve Beaton
22 Mervyn King
23 Jeffrey de Zwaan
24 Chris Dobey
25 Krzysztof Ratajski
26 John Henderson
27 Keegan Brown
28 Ricky Evans
30 Danny Noppert
34 Vincent van der Voort
45 Glen Durrant
48 Jamie Hughes

West, Wilson, van den Bergh, Anderson, Dolan, Huybrechts, Lennon, Lewis, Joyce, Reyes, van Barneveld, O'Connor, Payne, Humphries, Searle and Klaasen fill out the intervening right, making Steve the highest ranked player in the FRH rankings not to be there.

How about who's got the highest points per turn of players in there? We can do that as well, we'll apply a minimum 75 legs played filter to get any detritus out while still including part time players that happen to be in the field:

1 Michael van Gerwen 96.06
2 Gerwyn Price 95.63
3 Rob Cross 95.48
4 Peter Wright 94.04
5 Glen Durrant 93.98
6 Ian White 93.83
7 James Wade 93.79
8 Jamie Hughes 93.66
9 Krzysztof Ratajski 93.57
10 Michael Smith 93.09
11 Mensur Suljovic 92.99
12 Dave Chisnall 92.96
13 Nathan Aspinall 92.11
14 Danny Noppert 92.11
16 Jeffrey de Zwaan 91.99
18 Daryl Gurney 91.87
21 Chris Dobey 91.67
22 Jonny Clayton 91.52
23 Gary Anderson 91.50
24 Max Hopp 91.47
25 Steve Beaton 91.17
26 Adrian Lewis 91.13
31 Keegan Brown 90.98
33 Ricky Evans 90.84
34 Vincent van der Voort 90.82
36 Jermaine Wattimena 90.80
37 John Henderson 90.79
42 Mervyn King 90.34
46 Joe Cullen 90.00
57 Stephen Bunting 89.66
64 Simon Whitlock 89.03
68 Darren Webster 88.52

O'Connor, Anderson, Cadby, de Sousa, Clemens, Monk, Humphries, West, van den Bergh, Lennon, Evetts, Woodhouse, van Barneveld, Dolan, van Duijvenbode, Payne, Klaasen, Searle, Ross Smith, McGeeney and Rodriguez are those in the top 50 that aren't listed here. Can't really go all the way down to nearly 70 in the rankings, can we. What about who's won the most ranking legs? Going to be somewhat affected by how much people actually play, but here we go:

1 Ian White 513
2 Nathan Aspinall 469
3 Gerwyn Price 463
4 Dave Chisnall 445
5 Glen Durrant 423
6 Michael Smith 417
7 Krzysztof Ratajski 408
8 James Wade 403
9 Jonny Clayton 402
10 Peter Wright 385
11 Michael van Gerwen 378
12 Jermaine Wattimena 373
13 Chris Dobey 358
14 Daryl Gurney 348
15 Steve Beaton 341
16 Adrian Lewis 340
17 Jeffrey de Zwaan 339
18 John Henderson 337
19 Ricky Evans 326
20 Keegan Brown 312
21 Rob Cross 301
23 Danny Noppert 300
24 Max Hopp 292
25 Joe Cullen 290
26 Jamie Hughes 288
27 Stephen Bunting 286
28 Vincent van der Voort 285
29 Mervyn King 280
33 Simon Whitlock 261
39 Mensur Suljovic 234
62 Darren Webster 172
136 Gary Anderson 37

Ross Smith leads the way in legs won who isn't there, followed by de Sousa, van den Bergh, Clemens, Meulenkamp, Searle, Evetts, Monk and Anderson fill the gaps down as far as Suljovic.

Everyone's shooting off to 'murica now, I'm more interested in who comes through the qualifier to get into the worlds (assuming it's the same format as last year) than anything in the World Series to be honest, but hey, maybe someone will pull off a shock!
