Top 10k FPL managers reap rewards as Triple Captain chip comes to the fore

As expected, Gameweek 36 proved the most popular for the Triple Captain chip in the end.

34.97% of managers ranked inside the top 10,000 worldwide opted to enhance their armbands with Liverpool hosting Huddersfield.

It was the Reds’ mismatch with the Premier League basement boys that inspired the swathe of Triple Captain activations, with three of the four different players chosen for it Anfield based.

21.31% of top 10k managers played their Triple Captain chip on Sadio Mané (£10.1m), who registered a healthy 13 point haul.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) was trusted with the chip by 12.58% of managers at the highest level – an even more impressive outcome from his 19-points scored against Huddersfield.

Roberto Firmino (£9.3m), who missed out on Gameweek 36 with a muscular problem, and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) were both backed with the Triple Captain chip by under 1% of the top 10,000.

As you can see from the table above, the Triple Captain chip still has the power to act as a differential in the closing Gameweeks of the season.

The second Wildcard and the Free Hit chips have all but outlived their usefulness as each of them has been used by over 99.6% of managers inside the top 10k.

The Bench Boost is currently on 95.54% usage by those at this level, but 12.4% are still yet to use their Triple Captain chips.

They will be considering some of the mismatches in Gameweeks 37 and 38, which include Chelsea facing Watford at Stamford, Manchester United travelling to Huddersfield and then hosting Cardiff.

Manchester City’s remaining fixtures could catch their attention with Leicester coming to the Etihad Stadium in Gameweek 37 before Pep Guardiola’s men travel to Brighton on the closing day of the campaign.

Looking at how many chips have used in the top 10,000 further highlights the opportunity for some managers within that.

82.8% of them have now exhausted their chip supply with two Gameweeks left of the season.

That means that 17.2% still have at least one joker up their sleeve between now and the end of the season, and it is possible that there are some ranked between 10,000 and 20,000 with the ability to break into the top tier with effective chip deployment.

With Wildcards and Free Hits very much things of the past now this season, the template of players inside the top 10k remains largely similar for Gameweek 36 as it was for Double Gameweek 35.

Managers at this level have kept faith in their Brighton defensive assets ahead of the visit of Newcastle to the Amex Stadium.

Mat Ryan (£4.4m) and Shane Duffy (£4.8m) both have over 56% effective ownership within the top 10k for Gameweek 36.

The power of Salah’s huge double-figure haul against Huddersfield on Friday is demonstrated by the fact that he is not among the top five most popular midfield assets for Gameweek 36.

He is in just 30% of squads in the top 10k, but his effective ownership, factoring in the captaincies and Triple Captain chips, was the sixth-best on 70.94%.

The only changes to this model came in defence and up front.

Off the back of Manchester City’s eight clean sheets in their last 10 matches, Aymeric Laporte (£6.2m) increases in popularity at the expense of Jan Valery (£4.1m).

Meanwhile, Andre Gray (£6.0m) is now the third most popular forward, although is in just 22% of squads in the top 10,000.

    Murray + Jimmy >> Rashy + Ings (-4) for the 2 last matches.

    Yay or Nay

    1. Jurgen Flopp
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Not Jimenez

    2. All Out of Mounie
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Could work out.. I'm not sold on Ings even tho I own him. I'm keeping Jimi, looking at another way to get Rash. Will possibly get Rondon out for him.

    3. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Jimmy to Ings I don't like. Rashford is a good switch but I would find another way to make the move.

      1. Baked baines
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Keep jimi for the Fulham game than last game swap for Zaha/Rashford

  2. Devo-McDuff
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Hmm, hoping to get a jammy decent return from Fraser first sub after swapping Firmino in for Laca this week,

    1. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Firmino in for Laca was also my planned move. But at this stage of the seas6it pays to wait for the deadline even if it means missing out on 0.1m.

      1. Devo-McDuff
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Did it as late as I could but in New Zealand at the moment so would have been middle of night for deadline. So it goes!

    Anyone else think this article would be much more readable if the % were to only 1 decimal place or even nearest whole number?

    Jimenez 89.94% ownership!

    90% is fine surely.

    1. Klein
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Might offend some decimalists though

    2. All Out of Mounie

      Ok Peter... didn't know you could count.

    3. Demel

      I agree

    4. Syd.

      Wouldn’t bother me either way

    5. PlumaPiedra

      I'm able to read 2 decimal places so it's fine for me.

          No chance

            Very true, not sure he has much left in locker for this week so at least we should get a bit of a rest.

  5. Miguel Sanchez
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    These are couple of good moves with 2FTs

    Vardy and Brooks to Rashford and B.Silva?

    1. Cech-King MoSalah
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      That's as good as it gets I reckon

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Cool - have 0.1 wiggle room so I can probably wait until later this week before clicking confirm.

    2. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Not a huge fan of B Silva but they aren't bad moves.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Could go Redmond (whu, HUD) instead

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I quite like that. It also gives you cash for the final game.

    3. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Check out Chelsea's rest days. I wouldn't be surprised if Vardy destroys them on the final day.

  6. Miguel Sanchez
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Who is a better final GW punt at home to Hudds:

    A) Ings (HUD)
    B) Redmond (HUD) - could even captain for a final flourish

    1. Cech-King MoSalah
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Gotta B

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Yeah - kinda led the question somewhat but who to lose from Salah Sterling Pogba Son B.Silva to make it happen.

        1. Cech-King MoSalah
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Ings 😀

        2. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 22 days ago

          B Silva?

    2. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      A might not even start. B for me.

  7. Demel
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    FPL really is a rollercoaster. After GW31 (blank) I played my free hit chip and fell from 3k>5k. Then I played my bench boost and rose from 5k > 400. I was talked about on the scout cast and featured in The Times. Last week I plummeted to almost 3k. This week I take a hit to bring in Mane, own TAA and TC Salah and I am back in the Top 1k

    Doing things differently to the masses is certainly more fun. But it is also a lot more stressful!

    1. French Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Quick brag

      1. Demel
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        It is funny because 2k OR is a huge achievement but when you drop from 400 to 2.8k in a single week with 3 to play it didn't feel like it.

        Congrats. That really is a rollercoaster.

    4. Hakim Ziyech
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I agree, I am puttung on a final masquerade with the fh & wc chip now to see how far I can get in this final 2 gameweeks. I really really need to smash it hard

      1. Demel
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Good luck. Not many have chips left so you should be in prime position for some good greens if you utilise them effectively

    5. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      It’s all about adopting a strategy that you think is the correct one and can only really be reviewed once the season is over.

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I agree

      2. Demel
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Very true. This plan was always in place from GW25 to GW38. I took a very long term approach at that point. At the time I was 7k. If I do better than that at the end of the season then it has bee a success.

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Well done. My brags would not be so subtle if doing this well 🙂

          1. Demel
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Thanks.

        2. BenjoBD
          2 months, 22 days ago

          What is your approach this season in a nutshell?

          1. Demel
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Fairly simple. Patience is key. Owning the big players who have great fixtures regardless of form is key. Eg. People tend to say no to bringing in Pogba for the final 2. He could be a great punt. And covering off the Top 10k EOR players you anticipate to be over 100% e.g. I brought in Mane for a hit this week. Also moving early on players that you have a long term plan for and will rise in value in the first half of the season and then making last minute moves in the second half of the season.

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 22 days ago

              This makes sense. I tried different approach by not fully covering highest 10K EOR players and have fallen apart.

              1. Demel
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                It isn't always about covering them all. But it is about judging risk. E.g Mane on 153% at home to Huddersfield needed to be covered. Even if it meant taking a hit. Jimenez is away to Watford and on 90%. I do own him but I feel the risk of not owning him isn't too high this week. If I didn't own him I wouldn't have brought him in this week. So it isn't about going template. Just mitigating risk.

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  2 months, 22 days ago

                  My point exactly, Sterling sometimes ago etc. really hurts the rank. And the worst blunder of all time, missing BB deadline DGW35 🙁

                  1. Demel
                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 22 days ago

                    I didn't follow my own advice when Salah played Bournemouth earlier in the season. It killed my rank. My mate didn't play his BB last week as well. Although his Duffy c went a lot better than he expected.

            2. FPLGeezer
              2 months, 22 days ago

              I've got Pogba and Rashford in mind if Utd beat Chelsea.

              I've been grinding my way up and finall into top 10k a few weeks back and now top 5k. Had planned to bring in Salah for Huddersfield but stuck with Sterling after City won midweek. Saved a FT but need Sterling to kick on now. Hoping to finish as high as possible

              1. Demel
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Good luck I brought in Salah in my GW33 WC with this week in mind. But Sterling is also locked in. I wouldn't have switched him either.

    6. Magic Zico

      I keep dropping the last few weeks with series of unfortunate decisions ... so I don’t know what roller coaster I have ridden 😉

          Yeah, you need to help me back with a couple GWs to go with BB chip left!

  8. HollywoodXI
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    I still can’t quite believe how awesome that game was last night in terms of FPL points scoring. The last time I felt like that was several years ago when United beat Arsenal 8-2 and I owned Rooney and Ashley Young!

    1. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      The bench boast for me. But it was great. I once had Dempsey and Zamora and captained Clint. They did something similar.

    1. Syd.

      That was just crazy and a big gamble.

      In my eyes he was never an option as he was never nailed

      1. Demel
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Same for me. I regretted not going with the Aguero 20 pointer at the time. I very nearly went with Aguero last week I feel relief that it went ok more than anything else after wacking it on Salah.

      2. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        He was playing and returning regulary prior to this unfamous DGW.

        I agree that with City players there is awlays an element of gamble but dont think it was crazy at the time.

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I got 33 from Sterling that week. No regrets, still think the logic was sound. Man City in a double Gameweek, why wouldn’t you use TC then?

    3. shearer9
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I used mine on Salah away to Fulham - calamitous. Still just outside top 10k somehow.

    Those with 3 Wolves looks great right now but a hit waiting to happen for 38?
    What are you plans if tripled up?

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bench a couple of them or transfer one of them out.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Logical but with a bench of Duffy Gray and Valery ...

        1. The_Fish
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Valery against Huddersfield...

    2. shearer9
      • 2 Years

      Eh? They're banging against top teams. I'll probably bench Boly, but Jota and Jim are staying.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        I still have a stupid belief Liverpool might just do it hence I am City less and it's worked great the last 2 weeks.

        2 months, 22 days ago

        I saw that and someone else say ‘mane out’’ on main page so assumed was true and switched my triple captain to taa... too late to change back when I saw line up.

        Only cost me 6 points but a lesson learnt

  13. Simmoo
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    61 with 12 to play (bench boost)

    Patricio, Guaita,
    AWB, Luiz, Laporte, Duffy,
    Son, Sterling, Camarasa,
    Wilson, Rashford, Jimenez.

    Gotta be worth a green arrow surely?

    1. casual
      • 2 Years

      ........Big green arrow

    2. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Sure is. Although this feels the week of the TC chip rather than BB. Did you miss the deadline last week?

      1. Simmoo
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        No, just used my own chip strategy due to wildcarding in January. Took a hit last week with everyone bench boosting but made up for it so far this week.

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I can see that with the team. I did the same. Good luck.

  14. eazy
    • 3 Years

    The plan was to move Salah for Sterling this week. Doesn't feel so good atm 😀

    Early look at next week.

    Thoughts on this switch?

    Mane > Hazard

    Leno
    Kola - TAA - Valery
    Salah - Hazard c - Son - Sterling
    Aguero - Llorente - Jimenez

    Ryan - JWP - Bednarek - Duffy

    Some bizarre comments on here regarding Leicester being a ‘tough’ game for city.

    What are Leicester actually playing for? City are going to be so fired up - imo if they beat Burnley tomorrow it’s over

    1. casual

      2 months, 22 days ago

      Ex manager wanting to do his old team a favour??

    2. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I disagree. I think they will sweep aside Burnley but Leicester for me was always the tricky one. Even before United I felt that was the toughest game in the run in after Spurs.

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Maybe but don't know if I agree with the season ticker rankings.
      It's not like I am keeping Vardy but don't see City hauling.
      1 or 2 nil good enough and then yes it is over.

    4. Burger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      The way Leicester play, ie attacking, should compliment Citys style of play perfectly. Wouldn't be surprised to see Foxes get a tonking.

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Playing for pride surely

    6. YEAH PITCH!
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Rogers. What sweeter way.

    Covered my rival beautifully who I knew would (TC) Mane. He had Salah too but no Pool defence. I went Salah(c), brought Mane in for KdB and have always had Robbo. 65-58 to me. Tactics!

    1. tokara
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      u trying too hard to say like its big deal but actually everyone is doing the same thing

      1. shirtless
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I didn't have to bring in Mane did I? Tactical move. And his TC chip actually lost him ground. Last chance gone 80 point lead maintained.

        1. PlumaPiedra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Who else would you bring in for KDB this week?

          1. shirtless
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Considered another City option. Or a cheaper player to have funds next week to move out Gray. Looks like I'm stuck with him now lol.

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      booooo...

    3. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      With KDB injury, surely Mane is the perfect replacement. And cause you know rival will TC Mane, you TC Salah to cover lead. So logic imo.

      1. shirtless
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        No I only (c) Salah. Already tripled.

    4. Warblers Fear Satan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Tactics? Seems pretty obvious to me. And you lucked out that Salah outscored Mane.

      A lot of people here taking credit for Pool's pasting of Hud--as if everyone didn't know that was going to happen....

  18. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Can't compete with the high rank stories here - congratulations!
    But to put things in perspective, I rose 40k last night without Salah. Which tells you everything about the season I've had 🙂
    A little less embarrassing now...hopefully.

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      make that 400k rise by next week and you are back in the game 😉

    2. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      That is no mean feat. FPL is a personal journey and it is still a great feat. I had a terrible season last year and it taught me a lot. Finish on a high. Switch off during the summer. Learn the lessons. Then shoot for the stars next year.

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I started this season strongly.
        Then it went terrible, lots of bad luck which led me to quit it for 2 months between mid February and mid April.
        Missed it so returned just before gw34 deadline.
        Wildcarded, had a mediocre gw34 score but a big gw35 one.
        Now on a successful TC Mane with Robbo and TAA and many good players to come.
        Will free hit in gw38 and that will probably get a high score too.
        Looking back, the 2 month break was a good thing, I was addicted and was making bad decisions taking hits.
        It was no fun back then, but now I take it easy and luck certainly helps.
        Last season's gw38, just to have a last bit of fun, I took a -24 hit and built a team I liked.
        It scored 96 pts and got close to winning our mini league.
        Don't know how I got to say all the above but.. play the game the way you like and if it doesn't go your way, take it easy!
        A lesson for me too.

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Exactly. My wife won her work league 3 years in a row. She doesn't know much about football she doesn't know about fixtures. She watched the first match on match of the day every week and brought in the best player in that game on the Saturday night. She would always captain the best player every week (Suarez, RVP etc) regardless of the fixtures. She had 3 Top 10k finishes in a row. There is more than 1 way to play the game.

    3. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Thanks all. 96k now, which would still be the worst for a long long time - but nobody owes me a good rank!

  19. The Head-Ake
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Why do I have to be stupid? I forgot about the Friday deadline and didn't get Salah in :/

    1. Burger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      We're not falling for that one.

      1. The Head-Ake
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Check my timeline I was contemplating Eriksen, Vardy to Salah, Grant. Thought I'd post today morning one last time before I do it.. 🙁

    2. Kiwivillan
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I set my alarm for 530am local time 30 mins before deadline. There's no excuse really

  20. laveshp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    65 pts from Salah (C), Mane & Robbo so far!

    I have DECIDED TO SAVE MY TC CHIP (Perhaps the wrong decision but oh well!)

    Trying to start a small thread on who you think is worthy for the TC chip for GW37 & GW38!

    Let me know your thoughts!!

    (2nd in my ML with 30 points to chase, 1st place decided to save his TC too!)

    My thoughts on TC:

    GW37:
    Jimenez VS FUL (HOME)
    Salah vs new (Away)
    Aguerooooo vs LEI (HOME)
    Sterling vs LEI (HOME)
    Pogba vs HUD (HOME)
    Rashford vs HUD (HOME)

    GW38: (Final Day TC)
    Agueroooo vs bri (Away)
    Sterling vs bri (Away)
    Salah vs WOL (Home)

    VOTE!

    Cheers Gents!

    OR: 9k (First time cracking the Top 10K EVER!)

    1. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Sterling vs LEI

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Sterling or Aguero in gw 37

      1. laveshp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Yeap, definitely leaning towards a man city player for sure!

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Seriously I don't think City will give Lei a kicking. But everyone else thinks they will I am going to have to get some City cover.

      1. laveshp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        To me and my TC it comes down to a golden boot contender, it's going to be interesting to see the standings after this GW.

        So far:
        Salah 21
        Mane 20
        Aguero & Auba 19
        Sterling 17 (Hatrick incoming soon....?) hahah

    4. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Pogba vs Huddersfield at home is punty but one I like.

      1. laveshp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Yea good idea as well!

    5. Kung Fu Football
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Pogba & Rashford in 37 are away not home.

    6. Whats the Huth
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Sterling at Brighton I think.

  21. Tibbs
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Drunken transfer made last night, how did I do?

    Vardy/Ericksen>>>Zaha/Sterling (already own Aguero/Son)

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Vardy could punish, Son will cover for Erixen

      1. Tibbs
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I made this after the deadline so for GW37

        1. Duffy Dunk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Oh I see. Then they're good moves

        2. laveshp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I think this is a great transfer for GW37, we just have to hope that either of them will not be injured 🙂

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Still thinking of the same moves sonobviously don't think it's bad.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Might not even be a typo fail
        I think I quite like that new word I invented its got a ring to it 🙂

    3. Tibbs
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      By the sounds of it should let drunk me decide my transfers, seem better decisions than sober me makes, cheers

    4. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Good moves. Your only issue is making them so early.

    5. ebb2sparky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      yes, 2 transfers when there are still 9 games left sounds like a drunken move! Assuming no injuries or suspensions in your team then i reckon it will pay off though

    6. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 22 days ago

      My plan is Firmino Eriksen to Sterling Zaha, so this is probably fine!

  22. Miguel Sanchez
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Who scores more in the final two:

    A) Redmond (whu, HUD)
    B) B.Silva (LEI, bha)

    1. laveshp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      B for sure for me.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I am not sure

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      A at Hudd could really haul....

  23. pelle9
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Guys,

    Who do we think we be most captained GW 37 ?

    Aguero or Sterling ?

    Thanks.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Overall Aguero - in the top 10k it should be a lot closer

    2. fenixri
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I am going for Salah. He is in great form atm.

  24. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Best way forward here

    Patricio — foster
    Doherty Laporte Kola - Valery Duffy
    Son Sterling Mane Pogba Jwp
    Kun Jiménez— Gray

    A) Jwp + Gray >> Elliot + Rashford (-4)....will then plan to do Jiménez > Mitro in gw38. It does leaves a very poor bench (Doherty, Duffy, Elliot) for gw38 if rotation happens

    B: Laporte + Gray >> Shaw + Rashford (-4)....then Jiménez > Mitro in gw38. slightly improves gw38 situation as I will have jwp on bench for any rotation

    C: Gray >> DCL/Ings and Bench jwp. Then in gw38, Do Jiménez > Rashford and Bench DCL instead of jwp

    D: something else especially to cover my defence in 38 when Doherty/Duffy have tough fixtures and if Kola doesn’t start

    Leaning towards C as it avoids the hit, still gets me Rashford (albeit only in 38) and have a decent front 8 in gw38 to cover some rotation.

    1. laveshp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Mate thats descent planning, but I would take it one week at a time and just see the players on form this week 🙂

  25. fenixri
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Season is coming to the end. This is my first FPL season and I am having a blast. I started playing fantasy football through european and world cup, but this is way better. Also this is great community and everyone is nice and helpful. So I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here.

    Now what are your final transfer plans for last 2 gws? Do you still have any chips left and how you plan to use them?

    I used all my chips. TC was failure on Salah away to Fulham. BB went great, FH was ok. What about you?

    1. laveshp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Good to see you had a good one! Whats your overall rank right now?

      I personally saved my TC this week (perhaps the wrong choice), but I did captain salah!

      I am pretty certain of TC-ing a man city player next week or week after!

      1. fenixri
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Hi, I am currently 13k, whats your OR? TC last week on City player looks good to me

        1. laveshp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I just jumped from 13k to 9k after last night! 13k in your first season!? Amazing dude!

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Chips all used. I thinking to replace Vardy with Rashford or Zaha.

    3. Demel
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Take this as a learning season. The community will help with 1 off transfer/bench/captaincy decisions but you will find out that a lot comes down to longer term thinking. That is your own journey. That improves with experience. Next year perhaps get a grab sorted and you will feel more involved.

      For my my FH was a disaster. BB a big success. 2nd WC has had mixed results. 1st WC was a disaster. .

    4. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      BBed last gw, got 112.
      TCing this gw, on 63 with 8 to play.
      Still have FH to play, which will be done in gw38, so this week I'll make my last transfers which I plan to be:

      Eriksen->Hazard (WAT)
      Son->Pogba (hud)
      Vardy->Rashford (hud)

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Or even Siggy (BUR) instead of Pogba.

    5. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      My chips have gone great tbh.

      But my captaincy decisions have flopped (too many fails from Salah and Kane). Should have taken more hits to get the big hitters in. Seems like those who have rotated between Salah, Mane, Hazard, Sterling, Pogba, Aguero, Kane, Aubameyang have done well. Patience hasn't paid off as much this season IMO.

  26. ebb2sparky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 22 days ago

    Pogba or B.Silva (or keep Moura) for the last 2?

    1. laveshp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Pogba just because of HUD. But I would wait till 5 mins before next deadline.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Until you missed the deadline 😉 happened to me believe it or not

        1. ebb2sparky
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I’ve been playing over 10 years and never missed a deadline and that includes days before I had a smart phone or tablet! Probably says more about my sad dedication to a fantasy game than anything else though!

          1. Mika-eel
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Great history!

      2. ebb2sparky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Agreed, I’ll wait until later. Pogba price drop last night should allow me to wait until 5 mins before.

    2. Kung Fu Football
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Surely we need a Utd defender for last two of Hudds & Cardiff right? Any thoughts on who you would prefer?

      1. Kung Fu Football
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Reply fail!! Sorry 50/50 watching closely!!

      2. ebb2sparky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I reckon Cardiff will score against them but they should keep a clean sheet against Huddersfield particularly if Mounie plays. Definitely wouldn’t take a hit for a Utd defender though

  27. diesel001

    2 months, 22 days ago

    Only way is down for Scout Picks after having Salah, Mane and Robertson yesterday. Possibly the best three opening picks by the Scouts ever.

    Might aswell keep till end of season right?

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]

      Yes

    2. Klein
