Half of FPL top 10k have exhausted chip supply

Nearly half of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Double Gameweek 35 have now exhausted their chip supply for the season.

47.9% of those at that level have used all of the chips and will have to rely only on their transfers for Gameweeks 36, 37 and 38.

47.0% have just one left in their locker, with the Triple Captain currently the least used of the four.

That has been used by 59.48% of the top 10k managers, suggesting that there is a real opportunity either to make ground in that bracket or break into it with an effective deployment of the Triple Captain.

Not surprisingly, the Bench Boost was deployed extensively at that level of the game for this round of fixtures.

The number of top 10k managers who had used it after the Double Gameweek 35 deadline rose from just 18.61% to 86.12%.

That means a huge 67.51% of them are enjoying points for all 15 players over the next few days.

The most popular cheaper options likely to have been included in Bench Boost scores are Shane Duffy (£4.8m), Mat Ryan (£4.4m), Yan Valery (£4.1m) owned by 44.88%, 39.68% and 39.05% of the top 10k respectively.

There was a small portion of upper echelon who considered the Triple Captain chip.

7.87% of them went for an enhanced skipper for Double Gameweek 35, with Raheem Sterling (£11.5m), Sergio Aguero (£11.8m), Raúl Jiménez (£6.9m) and Son Heung-min (£8.8m) the only four options considered for it.

Manchester City’s midfield star Sterling was the most popular from that quartet for the Triple Captain among the top 10k and has it all to do at Old Trafford after scoring just one point against Spurs.

Those options were also the key players in the normal captaincy debate too, which was exceptionally tight at the top level just as it was for everybody else.

Sterling was handed the armband by 28.14% of managers in the top 10k, more than any other player.

Aguero was second placed with 24.57% and Jiménez third on 22.08%.

Given that last weekend was the most popular for the Wildcard chip, it should be no surprise that there was little change in the top 10k most owned players between Gameweek 34 and 35.

The only major difference between the two models is up front. Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) was the third most popular forward among the top 10k for Double Gameweek 34, behind Aguero and Jiménez, but that honour now falls to Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m).

The Arsenal man is in 22% of top 10k squads for Double Gameweek 35, with fixtures against Crystal Palace (home) and Wolves (away) coming up.

Those who had Wildcarded in Double Gameweek 34 also had to make a change, following Troy Deeney‘s (£5.9m) sending off on Monday night.

Despite conceding seven goals in Double Gameweek 34, Duffy remains among the most owned defenders, although has lost a fair amount of his backing among the top 10k.

No defender was in more squads than him last time around, with 71.6% effective ownership in the top 10k, but that dropped to just 51.86% for Double Gameweek 35, which of course will be influenced by considerably fewer captain’s armbands.

    Who's that?

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Babel?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yes, soldier Ryan.

    B) Vardy,KDB to Zaha,Salah(TC) (-4pts & bench jota)
    C) Vardy,KDB,Lloris to Firm,Sterling,Patricio (-8pts & bench Jota)

    1. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Just buy a player who your rival owns.

  7. My heart goes Salalalalah
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Vardy, Eriksen and Duffy to Mitro, Mané and VVD for -4? Or any forward up to 6.4?

  8. Rains of Castamere
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Save FT?

    Gunn (BOU)
    Duffy (NEW) Trent (HUD) Doherty (wat)
    Salah (HUD) Mane (HUD) JWP (BOU) Son (WHU) Sterling (bur)
    Jimenez (wat) Wilson (sou)

    Best DEF/MID/FWD trio to bring in for a BB this week?

    Budget = 18.9m

    Ryan, Foster
    TAA, Doherty, Duffy, Dunk, xxx
    Sterling, Son, Mane, Jota, xxx
    Aguero, Jimenez, xxx

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I'd say Valery, Babel, Firmino

      1. Boberella
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Babel looks a great pick for the run in.

    Anyone have any links to the carnage yesterday when Brighton finally kept a CS? 😆

    There must have been people that cancelled their BB, sold Brighton defenders for Watford and Southampton players and basically lost their sh!t.

    Just goes to show that luck and patience is required . Only the perverse would’ve kept Ryan and Duffy if they could pick any 15 without transfer penalties.

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I had doc and Duffy. Lovely scoreless draw.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        I brought in Jiménez for Deeney. He never scores for me, so it was a no brainier to keep my Brighton defence.

    2. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I lost 3 points doing Ryan > Patricio but kept Duffy.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        If I had the funds, I’d have probably done Ryan to Lloris. Funny old game this.

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 4 days ago

          Exactly. Classic example of the unpredictably of FPL

    3. DOG GOD IT - KEANE 15
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Had Ryan and Duffy, Patricio and Docherty (and Jimenez).

      Played all except Patricio in GW34 and we know how that went

      1. DOG GOD IT - KEANE 15
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Kept them all for GW35 and used BB, got 29 points so far from those 5!

  11. Amey
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Only thing i want today is Firmino Hattrick !! (Pool CS too 😛 )

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years

      That's four things.

      1. Amey

        Okay let's make it 5 with Auba blank 😉

        Yeah.
        Need huge points from Bobby & Taa Robbo

    Can't see Kola starting today.

          Oh yes! Not sure I can manage waiting a week in between but there’s no chance I’ll avoid spoilers if I store them up.

            Same . Sad it's coming to an end.

            Avoid social media then.

              I do! Last Monday, I avoided everything, started up my car, the radio comes on and they’re talking about GoT!! All I heard was arrow in the eye before I could turn it off but that was bad enough!

                I haven't watched any so can't correlate but can completely understand the frustration mate 🙂

        Probably rested. Only guessing of course.

    How lucky have you been this season? Check it out at Fplreview.com

    No luck for me. I’m currently 7k but my ‘fair rank’ based on transfers and xG etc. is 350.

    TC: Red arrow
    WC: Red arrow
    BB: Red arrow.

      Lol.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Don't know about that.
      But I TC Sane, Kept Auba instead of Kun, Got KDB last gw, trusted Howe in gw 5 & binned Fraser on WC, sold Duffy this gw to list a few 😀

      Certainly not lucky.

    4. AndyCook
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      How does this work then? Does it take your starting team and figure out a final position based on good/lucky decisions? Or does it use probabilities of goals etc to work out would should have happened with the team you have?

      1. AndyCook
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        I found it! It’s based on odds pre match and xG post match. This means that people who follow the pre-game statistics should be generally seen as unlucky depending on the weighting of pre and post match

  14. The Royal Robin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    If you owned both Son and Eriksen would you look to sell one? Unfortunately priced out of Aguero but I'm actually considering cheaper options like Redmond to free up cash.

    1. The Royal Robin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      By Aguero I mean I would like to upgrade one of Wilson or Rondon to him.

    Thanks to those who talked me out of TC35.

    BB35 had always been my plan but triple Brighton bench made me wanna TC instead. I was in no doubts that Kev was my man, so no regrets.

    Rough so far : KDB (c), no show Lloris and Valery. Son, Sterling and Eriksen couldn’t repeat champions league returns.
    Smooth: Duffy and Dunk off bench for some CS returns. Own Bennett too and did think he’d no show again.

    3. T-BOX ⚽

      Salah

      A

    5. Alpharius

      If you have him it’s got to be A
      If not and you have mane then him

      Whoops, Redmond x 2 😀

    2. RamaJama

      D

    3. Alpharius
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 days ago

      It’s got to be D
      Very unlikely Pereria gets any points now, whereas eriksen could easily outscore his replacements

  21. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Which Pool for the run in?

    A) Salah
    B) Salah+Mane -4
    C) Mane+Firmino -4

    1. Alpharius
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I like C

      It seems unlikely both mane and Firmino don’t score points when Liverpool score.

  22. Az

    Anyone else going without Salah next week?
    Bit scary isn’t it

    1. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      FOMO isn't it.

    2. Alpharius
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I’d say as scary as not having mane. I’ve got mane and Firmino in an attempt to de risk not having the one attacker who explodes in that game. Hopefully even if it’s salah they are both involved too.
