Top 10k remain unmoved on popular transfer targets for Gameweek 37

The top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers have been largely unmoved by some of Gameweek 37’s key transfer targets.

Manchester United’s players have been much discussed over the last few days ahead of their final two fixtures with Huddersfield and Cardiff.

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard (£10.9m) has been looked at as a decent captain option when Watford come to Stamford Bridge.

However, neither Chelsea or the Red Devils are particularly well represented in the top 10k, who have seemed keen on minimal changes from their Gameweek 36 exploits.

As you can see from the graphic, none of Manchester United’s players have managed to break into the list of most popular options in the top 10k – which has not changed much from the Gameweek 36 template.

That’s despite Paul Pogba (£8.5m) and Luke Shaw (£5.0m) among the top five most signed assets ahead of Gameweek 37, transferred in by 115,000+ and 100,000+ respectively.

The Frenchman is the most fashionable at the top level, currently sat in 26.6% of top 10k squads, indicating his ability to make a difference for his owners.

Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) is owned by 15.8% of managers in the upper echelon, while left-back Shaw is enjoying 18%.

That suggests that the current top 10,000 managers are more concerned with form rather than fixtures.

The Red Devils have by far the most appealing schedule between now and the end of the season as they face Huddersfield and Cardiff, both of whom are struggling at both ends of the pitch right now.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have won just one of their last five Premier League matches, and their most popular Fantasy assets have performed poorly.

In that run, Pogba has averaged 4.6 points per game, but has blanked four times, while Rashford is without an attacking return since the first match of Double Gameweek 32.

Furthermore, Shaw has averaged 1.6 per Gameweek in the last five, although he was suspended for two of those.

That has understandably ensured they are poorly represented in the top 10k, although if Huddersfield can bring the best out of them they will almost certainly act as powerful differentials.

The same goes for Hazard who is owned by just 15.4% of managers in the top 10k.

The captain armbands that he has been trusted with take his effective ownership to 22.1%, which is still relatively low.

Given that Watford have conceded more big chances than any other side this calendar year, and Hazard has three double-figure hauls in his last four at home, a high score could force plenty of movement in and out of the top 10k.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah‘s (£13.3m) 19-point haul against Huddersfield has reduced his impact as a difference maker at this level.

His ownership in the top 10k has now increased to 39.6% which is finally enough for him to return to the list of the top five most popular midfielders.

The Egyptian is also the third-most captained in the top 10k for Gameweek 37, ahead of a trip to Newcastle, taking his effective ownership to 47.5%.

The most important asset by some stretch is Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) who has been captained by 52.3% of managers inside the top 10k.

That takes his effective ownership at this level to 132.5%, roughly 40% more than the second highest in this department, Raúl Jiménez (£7.0m) on 93.8%.

We have further confirmation that ‘chip season’ is very much a thing of the past as none of the power-plays were used by more than 4% of the top 10k for Gameweek 37.

As you can see, the Triple Captaincy was the most popular with Aguero, Raheem Sterling (£11.6m), Hazard and Salah those considered for it.

It is worth noting that there is still a small group of managers inside the top 10k who are yet to exhaust their chip supply.

91% of them have done so at this stage, but there are still 9% with chips left in their pocket.

Not surprisingly, it’s the Triple Captain which is likely to be the most deployed on the final day of the season as managers hope to benefit from what usually proves to be one full of goals.

    After 125 points last week was feeling a bit maverick this week.

    16 point hit Salah Vardy Eriksen Duffy Pereira to Hazard Sterling Rashford Laporte and Digne.

    Digne paying off already is delightful..

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Selling Salah & Vardy for a hit. Now that's risky...

      1. McEwan
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Salah I would give you, Vardy out for a hit wouldn’t trouble me one dot

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nice. Could actually work out.

      I sold VVD for Digne to fund Bilva. Don’t fancy double Liverpool D for the last two.

    So I just logged in and saw I've missed the deadline and missed a whole game

    I'm officially a casual

    Bye bye FT that I'll never use

      Carry it over for GW1 next season

    2. Hazz

      It could help you gain a few rank places potentially, at least.

      1. Bruce Lee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 14 days ago

        I had 2 FTs 🙁

          • 2 Years
          5 months, 14 days ago

          The fewer transfers you lose, the higher you rank vs. players in the same points.

          1 or 2 transfers won't make much difference, but there's likely multiple people on the same points total as you at the end of the season.

    Just to check, was Digne a good pick this week?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      This calendar year, he's been great. The one that got away for me, hopefully he's no more than 6m for 19/20.

      1. HIT ME!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        No way he is more than 6m

      2. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        5.5

    2. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Duffy to Digne going alright so far

      1. Art Vandelay
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Hate to tell you but Duffy will score a header against that shocking Arsenal defence.

        I kept Duffy (in case you can’t tell)

        1. Longlatini
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          More than likely!

    Ok but we are benching Digne against Spurs still, right?

    1. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years

      I think so I want Valery in off my bench.

      Nah

      Hopefully, Spurs win tomorrow and secure CL, then beat Ajax and Poch rests everyone for the CL final.

      Can you tell I’m a Spurs fan... 😆

  11. Scotty B

    What I said was I am really annoyed by changing the captaincy from Jimenèz to Richarlison in the last hour tonight

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Wait until Jimenez plays to be annoyed - 4 x 2 could end up being okay

  14. Oggle22
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    I did Salah and Llorente to Hazard and Rashford as my rival had Rashford and was worried and lo and behold he's done Rashford to Zaha

    1. fr3d
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I’d be sleeping with a smile if my rival had Rashford in his team

    2. FPL Pillars

      Lol

    3. acidicleo
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I did the first part of that...not very confident..

      1. Oggle22
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        I was debating it all day as I can see Newcastle rolling over for Liverpool but didn't want to take the risk of a Rashford haul hopefully Watford have an eye on the fa Cup final and Hazard runs riot

  15. FlockofSeagulls
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    So far bringing in Shaw over Digne isn't looking like the smart move. Hope it's not going to be one of those gws. 😆

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Shaw is capable scoring 12 points against HUD, or not? 😉

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        More like 2 though

      2. FlockofSeagulls
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Hope you're right, lol.

      3. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        A Kola 12 points.

        On 12 points in the 90th minute, end on 2.

    2. Bubbles1985
      • 2 Years

      Same for me pal!

      Nightmare, that would have put me top of our ML

      Over 2 weeks you will be happy

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Fine, as long as Hazard scores more

    2. Rising_Son
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I am expecting a decent chance.
      Reverse Fixture: BOU (H) 5 - 0, 13 points.
      Eriksen form: 2Gs 3As in the last 6 fixtures.

      1. how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Spurs form was a bit different back then....

        1. Rising_Son
          5 months, 14 days ago

          True but they also lost to WOL and MUN in the following games. Form is transient and sporadic. Look at Wilson.

          1. how now brown cow
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 14 days ago

            The difference is all spurs players are utterly knackered. Trust me, I've got a season ticket.

            Spurs often spank Bournemouth, and it could happen again (I sincerely hope it does) but I'd be very surprised.

            1. Rising_Son
              5 months, 14 days ago

              Good point. Hopefully, their willingness to secure top 4 before the Ajax match overcomes their fatigue. I am not expecting a haul, just a decent chance.

              Side question do you believe Spurs could use thicker bench for the next season?

              1. how now brown cow
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 14 days ago

                Their squad is weak, but had an unusual amount of injuries this season.

                Need to get 4 or 5 in over the summer, and will promote a few from youth team.

                1. Rising_Son
                  5 months, 14 days ago

                  The team just needs some petro-$$$

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Agree there is decent chance, but want to be part of Hazard’s farewell party at Bridge and his stats at home is also good. So, just enjoy the fantasy game ...

        1. Rising_Son
          5 months, 14 days ago

          I hope Haz awards those who risked him as differential and flip the tables in the top spots 🙂

    Ty Vert for getting injured and making me bring Digne in instead of Eriksen > Pogba...

    1. how now brown cow

      I'm not sure he feels the same way.

    2. acidicleo
      • 3 Years

      Isnt he okay according to Poch?
      Well done on the Digne pick.

    Forgive me for this, but need to share with those who could appreciate it... I'm part of this top 10k --- for the first time ever. Big, big thanks to those who have chimed in with advice on transfers over the past season. Here's the finishing strong. Cheers!

    Right. Now, back to my regularly scheduled overthinking.

      Congratulations! Nice touch that you thank the community too.

        I'd still be lamenting gw1 if not for the community and its feedback. This site as a whole, really.

        Plus, my first year as a member. Certainly paying off.

      Well done. And ignore the moaners who accuse you of bragging.

      One should share success and failure here.

    9 more days till we all look at our ranks and realise we've wasted many hours and it's all a bit pointless really.

    And then start all over again in July.

    Made a boo boo today. Missed deadline.
    Mane (c), and didn't do Eriksen ➡️ Pogba as planned.

    Did have Digne tho for a 12pt headstart.

    1. Pras Scott Talent
      • 7 Years

      Jammy casuals

      I think you will end up better off having not done that transfer.
      Well done on missing the deadline!

    3. acidicleo
      • 3 Years

      I think you will be fine without that transfer
      Not sure on cap though

    4. Flynniesta

      Boo boo..made me chuckle..sorry 🙂

  23. Mithrandir, the Grey Pilgri…

    • 9 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Missed Digne's 17 and 12 pointers earlier in the season in time to catch the -1 and -2's so feels great having played him for weeks on end now. Payback.

    1. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Benching him next week?

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        That was a reason that put me off getting Digne. Did not fancy having him for spurs away.

        1. ...al - Leave your comments…
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 14 days ago

          Same. Went for Shaw instead 😆

      2. Mithrandir, the Grey Pilgri…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        No!

  24. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Judging from the article above owning hazard and captaining him is a great way to make up ground on the top 10k. (Like I did)
    It does mean however, that I have to hope city get a clean sheet and the score remains reasonably low in the leicester city game. (I have double city defence and no city attack)

    I am not too sure all the above might go my way.
    It could happen I suppose.

    1. acidicleo
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Hope my last minute Salah to Hazard (cap) pays off..

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Oh that was ballsy.
        Fixture wise logic says Watford have eye on FA cup. Hazard only got 30 mins in Europa League. Last home game big send off etc.
        Plus the beauty of hazard is even if he only gets an assist the majority of the time he gets bonus points.

        1. acidicleo
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 14 days ago

          Thats true..
          Plus i have mane and guess Newcastle away may not be a goalfest.
          Also I couldnt decide between cap kun or raz. So in came haz..fingers crossed..

  25. Tommyg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Would genuinely love to know what percentage of the 10k actually know what they are doing and what percentage is there by fortune and happenstance only.

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      😆

      1. Tommyg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Just incriminated yourself? 😉

    2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Well as a person just inside the top 10k at the moment.
      I can tell you I like to think I know what I am doing, but more often than not. I would have been better off doing nothing and leaving my team alone.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Mix, I would guess 🙂

    4. Hakim Ziyech
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Lol. I am sure some ghost teams are in the top 10k

    5. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I'd go 2% are there by chance..

    6. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      If you’re in top10k at the end of he season you deserve to be there, simple.

    7. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Most fellas just pressing buttons for the sake of it would fall away I assume.
      I bookmarked the gw2 high scorer who got inside the top 40 after gw2 (played bench boost)

      https://fantasy.premierleague.com/a/entry/639556/history

      He is now just outside the top 600k he had no idea what he was doing obviously.

      1. Tommyg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah that makes sense. You have to be at very least making an effort not to make terrible choices.

        1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 14 days ago

          Plus you have to willing to go against the grain a bit when all the other managers are going a certain direction with players. You have to decide whether there is another viable option or even better one. Or when you should stick with the obvious picks.
          Difficult balancing act but the fellas who do extremely well in the top 1k-5k consistently always seem to manage it.
          Mark Sutherns is a prime example of aggressive tactics and going against the grain when sensible.
          https://fantasy.premierleague.com/a/team/4668/hisory

          Mark went from 145k gw 9 and a -8 hit to now inside the top 700.

          But Ville Ronka's conservative approach seems to have ruined a potentially superb season after a fantastic start.
          https://fantasy.premierleague.com/a/entry/829593/history

          Ville went from 817 gw 16 - now outside the top 30k

          It has made me really think about flexible approaches to playing the game. Think of the options those ranked around you are likely to go for etc. Then think beyond those options and work out which is best.

          1. ...al - Leave your comments…
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 14 days ago

            This is more like it

            The big boys know when to do the aggressive moves and when to chill the beans

            It's usually anti-hit around here and finding the balance is key

    8. The Danger Zone!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I'm top 10k for first week in ages and just went Eriksen to Pogba! Seems to go against article.
      Hoping Pogba keeps me in the top 10k.

      1. Tommyg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        It'll either be genius or retrospective madness.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Or just plain dumb luck?!

      2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        You will be praying for penalties so!

    9. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Probably decent enough if their up there at this stage

      I'm more interested in how experienced managers do over the years

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        If you look at my season history my rankings are all over the shop for each year.

        I even finished 582,740 in 2012/13 in a season where I was actually trying to play the game. It looks like I quit!
        But did not get ramsey. Had sturridge and suarez and kept picking the wrong Captain.
        Consistency is my issue.

    10. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      6m teams. Say 2-3m active. Enough of those will be able to make enough random monkeys/typewriters guesses to get top 10k scores. 10k is almost worthless. If a given player can do it twice I'll believe they're a good player!

    11. Plymouth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      To be honest; playing sensible and conservative will get you far. Ive done it the last two seasons, 5k last year and 9k now. Only get you that far tho, cant expect monster ranks.

  26. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Son TC tomorrow will be either the making or breaking off my season

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      He is not on form. Spurs look knackered genius if it works.

    2. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I think he'll get at least 1 attacking return, bold move, good luck.

    3. Optimus.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      You are a bellend, that is all, sorry

    4. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…

      -6 TC unlucky!

    Top 10k not taking risks

    Shaw and Haz should get me into the top 10k thx 🙂

  28. Collie01
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Digne has been such a great asset to own this year. Think he'll be one of the first names on my teamsheet next season

    1. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      He's going to be in my top 20

    2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      He is no baines not on pens

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Depends on the price tbh.

      I had him when he first arrived and done great with him. Sold through the slump. I just couldn't ignore Shaw this week with the fixts

      Decent player just never got a decent run at PSG n Roma

    4. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      I haven't owned him and I'm not sure why. Looks like a really good FPL player.

      1. lilmessipran
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Maybe because he plays for Eveton 😉

  29. circusmonkey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Lucas Digne, selling him looks like costing me my auction league. After the 3-2 at Newcastle I thought that's enough but been amazing ever since. Form and fixtures normally works on those kind of transfers though.

  30. masyuris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Best option for my bench boost team GW 38:
    A. De Gea (CAR) & Ings (HUD) (-4 pts)
    B. Guaita (BOU) & Mitrovic (BOU) (-4 pts)
    C. Gunn (HUD) & Wilson (cpl) (-4 pts)
    D. Ryan (mci) & Wilson (cpl)
    E. Guaita (BOU) & Jimenez (liv)

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 14 days ago

      B but Guaita and Mitro are not in the same team 😉
