When is the best time to play your FPL Wildcard?

After a great Gameweek 1 for many, Gameweek 2 brought a lot of us back down to earth with a bang.

So much so, that quite a few managers are activating their first Wildcard already, after just two weeks.

We spend months pulling our hair out building a Gameweek 1 squad only to rip it up before September has even arrived. That’s FPL. Things change so quickly.

It’s going to be a very interesting few weeks ahead to see how the early Wildcarders perform against those who are taking a more patient approach.

The beauty of FPL is that there is no right or wrong way to play it. You play the game the way you want to. If you care about what others think about your decision to Wildcard/not Wildcard, you need to take a step back and reassess things.

Do what’s right for your squad and ignore everything else. Don’t let the ‘noise’ influence your decision and that goes for any transfer not just Wildcarding.

Early transfers have been a hot topic this week too. I have always been a very patient FPL manager and it has served me well in the past, but I find with each new season, it is getting more and more difficult to play the waiting game, particularly in these early weeks when the transfer market is crazy.

I made rare early moves on Monday night as I had £0.0m to play with for my intended targets.

It is easier to move early at this stage of the campaign as there is less chance of issues arising during the week with no cup/European matches (apart from Wolves – stay safe Diogo!), and also the fact that the Wildcard is always there to fall back on if disaster does strike before the weekend.

As often as I can this season, I will continue to wait until Friday night to gather all the information possible before pulling the trigger, but as we’ve seen this week, sometimes you’ve got no choice but to act fast. Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) better act fast in Saturday’s early kick-off!

Double Liverpool defence is likely to be abandoned by most Wildcarders this week and by those looking to free up funds for the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (£9.6m) and Harry Kane (£11.0m).

The Liverpool defence has disappointed thus far but if it wasn’t for Adrian’s (£4.5m) howler against Southampton, and Danny Ings‘ (£6.0m) miss, the narrative would be very different this week.

Looking past the Arsenal fixture this weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side face Burnley (away), Newcastle (home) and Sheffield United (away) in the next four.

Patience could well be rewarded with the likes of Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m), Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m).

A clean sheet against Arsenal this weekend could see Wildcarders scrambling to get their ditched Liverpool defenders back in ahead of Gameweek 4.

There was a tweet doing the rounds on Wednesday about Benjamin Mendy (£6.0m) being back in training which will have Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) owners slightly worried about his place in the City team.

Pep Guardiola has been quoted recently saying he wants to see Mendy train well for a month before considering him for selection, but it’s Pep, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Mendy make an appearance sooner than expected.

If you own Zinchenko, it’s an easy one though, you just keep him until Mendy does reappear. On a Wildcard though, it might be worth trying to find the extra £1.0m for Aymeric Laporte (£6.5m) for peace of mind.

The forgotten man of FPL, Son Heung-min (£9.5m) is likely to make a return to action at home to Newcastle this weekend. Owned by less than 2% of managers, he could be the ultimate differential in Gameweek 3.

There is no guarantee that he goes straight back into the starting XI though, so it does feel like a risky move. Fortune favours the brave!

Good news and bad news now. The good news is Callum Wilson (£7.9m) is gone! Watch him wipe out my Zinchenko clean sheet on Sunday and doing his salute celebration to rub it in.

The bad news is my wife beat me again in Gameweek 2 in our head to head league. She’s six points ahead already and mentions that fact every single day.

Martial was her hero last weekend and I have a feeling he could be my downfall again this weekend. Hopefully, I can claw back three points.

Good luck all in Gameweek 3 and have great weekend.

    Need help to complete my WC template. Which combo is best:

    A) Mina + Barnes (1.6 itb that i could use to change Martial to Son)
    or
    B) Soyuncu + Kean (0.3 itb)

    Pope / Button

    Zinchenko / AWB / Lund / Hanley / ?

    Martial / KDB / Sterling / Salah / Mount

    Pukky / Barnes / ?

    Thanks!

        Sorry my mistake. A is ) Mina + Greenwood (or other, max 5.8... ) Barnes already in the template.

        1. Shark Team
          • 2 Years

          Still with A except you have to start greenwood

            For now don't seem to happen... but in a weeks with rotation could be a risk, indeed. Thanks!

      Need to bring Laporte and and a Liverpool defender into ur defence imo

      1. Gowiththeflow
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks! Upgrade Zin to Laporte is possible... harder is to put a Pool defender without downgrading any of mids

        I was just tinkering on my phone and when I finally decided he had gone up. I don't keep track of things like this to the minute

        when does price changes occur these days? At what time?

  3. Greek Flair
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    KDB or Martial?

    I know they’re difference price brackets but just trying to prioritise my transfer order

    1. tc93
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Both

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Just find it hard to justify going without Kane (or being super light in defense)

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      KDB.

    3. FOO FIGHTER
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Kevin mate.

      • Trossard or not Trossard
          10 months, 24 days ago

          De Bruyne by far.

      • gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Sometimes I do have to question the way FFS rates game difficulty in the fixtures. For example, just looking at Bournemouth fixtures. Their home game against Everton is ranked as difficulty level 2, whilst their home game against Man Utd is difficulty 4. Given that Everton have the best defensive record in the league in 2019 which is now a significant amount of games, those difficulty grades make little sense.

        1. Klein
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Their attack has been crap though. But yeah some of them are very inaccurate.

      • Shark Team
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        BIG DILEMMA...

        Dendocker or Lundstram

        One has easier opponent, playing for a better team and has more chances to produce goal/assist
        But
        The other one is defender so he has the chance of keeping clean sheet and also small chance of producing goal/assist

        *P.S. also own Ayoze Perez

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          I'm going Lundstram

        2. Sloopy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Also own Lundstram, Dendoncker and Perez. Playing the last two. I see Vardy scoring on a counter.

          1. Scott Talent
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            On a counter ?
            I think that Leicester will be doing most of the attacking tbh.

      • True Deadzoner
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        15 CS + 5 attacking points are good enough for TAA VVD?

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          What do you mean?

          1. True Deadzoner
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            for their price this season, I meant they wont match their points last year but 15 CS + 5 (G/A) are good enough for their values this year?

            1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
              • 5 Years
              10 months, 24 days ago

              I would be disappointed with that output - CSs could be as low as 15 I suppose, but would expect way more than 5 attacking returns for TAA, and probably more than 5 for VVD.

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          One more time.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
              10 months, 24 days ago

              I guess it boils down to this.

              AWB 2nd most owned def in the game.

              Who would you rather have, AWB, TAA or Robertson considering attacking returns plus clean sherts plus bonus points.

              If you do not have VVD then you will be trying to get him sooner or later.

        3. Erez Avni
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          play one:

          a. king
          b. lundstram

          cheers!

          1. Shark Team
            • 2 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            A

        4. tc93
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Who said a perfect wildcard draft wasn’t possible? 😉
          Pope
          VVD / Laporte / AWB / Digne
          Salah / Sterling / De Bruyne / Martial / Cellabos
          Pukki

          cheap bench. Midfield will be where all the points will be this season- think 5 mids will become the template in weeks to come.

          1. Tsssst
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            Pukki is chasing last weeks points, no Spurs

            1. tc93
              • 1 Year
              10 months, 24 days ago

              Equal to sterling for shots in the box and Pukka scored against a pool defence

              1. tc93
                • 1 Year
                10 months, 24 days ago

                If son starts tearing it up I may consider bringing him in

            10 months, 24 days ago

            No Son or Kane?

            When you look at the fixtures from now to GW13, how many Salah captaincies are there?

            I was making it only two!! (GW5 & GW8)

            And even in those two weeks Sterling has Norwich / Wolves and Kane has Palace / Brighton

            This madness has caused me to go without Mane or Salah on WC. The lack of Allison has also caused me to go pool defenceless

            1. Tsssst
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              10 months, 24 days ago

              same, you got Firmino?

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                10 months, 24 days ago

                No I went totally liverpoolless

                I wouldn't normally be that 'reckless' tbh as it could obviously backfire

                But I think it's an infirm risk with potentially huge upside, and the downside is kind of mitigated by spurs, City, man Utd, Evertons strong fixtures

            2. tc93
              • 1 Year
              10 months, 24 days ago

              Interesting! I would love Kane but I don’t think I could afford. What’s ur draft looking like?

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                10 months, 24 days ago

                At the minute am going

                Pope
                Digne, Zinchenko, KWP, AWB
                Sterling, KDB, Son, Martial
                Kane, Pukki
                (Button, Lundstram, Cantwell, Wickham)

                I've enough ITB to do Pukki > Kean as soon as there's a hint of him starting for Everton

            3. TomSaints
              • 2 Years
              10 months, 24 days ago

              I’m also nervously without Salah / mane. Just waiting on spurs team news to get a feel for Son.

              Currently prefer over Kane but need spurs this week!

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                10 months, 24 days ago

                It does feel a bit exposed for sure, but it's got a great chance of working out favourably over the next 10 weeks or so

                I think son is a cert to start, he's their best pacy forward by a country mile, and well rested after the suspension

            4. Dr. Rog
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              10 months, 24 days ago

              came to the same conclusion. feels wrong, but ultimately im probably going to perma captain Sterling so 10+ for any player is a bit much if not captaining. they need to have form & fixtures going for them (e.g. Kane)

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                10 months, 24 days ago

                Very similar thought process here

                Ultimately I was keeping Salah out of 'fear' rather than anticipation - something I want to try to avoid this year

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            Same as my structure but i have gone for some Spurs cover by putting Son in for Martial by downgrading Lapo to Zinc and Salah to Mane.

                Lets go - Son ultimate differential at the moment! 🙂 Toying with a couple of others bits too - Zinc + VD or TAA + KWP? Also Zinc + Ceballos or KWP + Mount. Be interested in your thoughts....

          Bottomed. How’s this team looking? I brought in Pogba because he has a great record against Palace. Is it worth taking Siggy out to prevent a hit?

          Pope

          KWP Zinchenko Lundstram Digne

          Sterling Pogba Siggy

          Kane(c) Jota Rashford

            Too much money on the bench. Lots of great low price mid and def out there. No city is ballsy. The team looks exciting. Lots of attacking potential. I would keep Siggy for no more than 1 more week, despite his fixtures. Martial is better value

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Is Laporte worth 6.5m?

          City's fixtures look amazing and they are the best def in the league but that price tag just feels a bit too much.

          Not having him on my wildcard means no City def as I don't think the other are nailed and going Pope over Ederson make sense to me.

          These are my 2 options:
          A) VVD, Laporte & Cantwell (442)
          B) TAA, Mount & Soyuncu (352)
          (Cantwell/Soyuncu will be on the bench most weeks.)

          Appreciate your thoughts! 🙂

            will outscore VVD I think, but there are City defenders available for 5.5 if you can supplement them with a bench.

            outside of Laporte you have

            Mendy/Walker/Zink/Cancelo/Otamendi/Stones duking it out for 3 places. at least one of those will start the majority of games not sure which yet but id probably go with Cancelo

          Best 4.5 keeper? Pope or Ryan?

                10 months, 24 days ago

                I think he will be the highest scoring 4.5 keeper at the end of the season.

                Plays behind a well organised defence who force a lot of opposition shots from distance giving him save points. Burnley also relinquish possession of the ball meaning his chance of BPS are a lot higher when they do keep a clean sheet.

            short term Adrian. Long term Pope. Also Henderson looking good in a defensively minded side.

            I've got Ryan ATM but plan to go Pope from GW5 wc so I guess if you're getting him now It'd be Pope

          Foolish or inspired to go without Salah/Mane/Liv defence

          Pope 4
          Digne AwB Otamendi 4 4
          Sterling KdB Martial Mount 4.5
          Kane Firminio Pukki

            The former. Just feel that extra point for mid goals makes Salah/Mane better value that the wonderful, but often deep lying Bobby.

            • 3 Years

            no pool defence is fine but no salah or mane is very risky to me

            basically comes down Salah & Kean/Haller or Mane & Rash or Kane & Bobby.

            Honestly if captaincy is falling to Sterling I dont think it makes a jot of difference from an expected points point of view, and the random variance of one combination or another will drown it all out anyway.

          FPL Draft;
          Abraham or Giroud?
          Alonso or Emerson?

          Have held Alonso as I can afford to bench him but not sure if/when he'll get his place back.

          A. Salah + Cantwell
          B. Mane + Ceballos

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            depends on the structure of the team.
            Ceballos allows 3 at the back type formation. so if you have expensive defenders go with him.

            1. Hits from the Bong
              • 1 Year

              Ha I definitely don’t. On a wc, plan to downgrade one of the strikers and get KDB for Ceballos, and VVD. Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

              Pope (Button)
              Digne AWB Dunk (Lundstram Kelly)
              Sterling Mane Martial Ceballos (Cantwell)

                in my view you cant really have 3 uber-premiums, without sacrificing the star picks like KdB/Martial/defence.
                pick Sterling and 1 of {Kane/Mane/Salah} it will make the team better overall.

                  Cheers. Yeah that is the plan, Sterling and one of the Liverpool lads, Kane is a short term pick a la Cardiff at home last season..

                    Kane is good for the next 6, and during that period Auba's fixtures ripen as well

          Is captaining Son over Sterling too much of a risk at this stage in the season.

          A) Son - he who dares.
          B) Sterling - having Son is enough of a differential.

          1. Hits from the Bong

            B this week. We don't have any idea where Son will be playing or how long - just not worth the risk when Sterling has a great fixture and is in great form.

            The attacking influence is appealing. Chelsea's defence is what's putting people off. I'm considering for GW7.

            good numbers, doubts over clean sheet
            a fine option at 5.5 imo, but competition is stiff from various City/Utd/Eve options

              Nice town. No idea about the Uni though. In terms of student lifestyle, no idea - guess it is a lot different now than when I went to Uni 20 years ago when it was all about getting pissed and stoned every night.

              Keep reasonably up to date with lectures & assessments - otherwise it falls like a hammer & can be hard to catch back up.
              They say 40 hours should be enough even on engineering, so plenty of free time if you manage it properly
              Join a half a dozen or more clubs/societies, chop back to the ones you like most. If they don't have a Bath Uni FPL league - start one
              Plan summer holidays/jobs well in advance, its the most time off you'll get in your life so take advantage.

              You didn't get back to us regarding Zinchenko being potentially injured. Tell us more.

            WC dilemma:

            A)
            Pope (Button)
            AWB Digne VvD Lunsdtram KWP
            McGinn Salah Sterling Martial Dendo
            Kane Pukki Greenwood (0.2 itb)

            B)
            Pope (Button)
            AWB Zinch VvD Lundstram KWP
            KdB Mané Sterling Martial Dendo
            4.5 Pukki Rashford (0.itb)

            Thanks!!

                B due to KdB, Rashford and City defensive coverage

                I like em both. I think B Spurs cover may just edge it. I would personally swap KWP with 4.5 and VVD to TAA. Concerns over Zinch place. Just feel Zinch and KWP are concerns

                  I would roll Lund/Mcgoldrick
                  LEI have shown no interest in clean sheets for some time now

                I normally wait until as late as possible until I make my transfer as well, but whoever has written this article (it's not stated) I have uncharacteristically made my moves already this GW, and currently have a TV of 100.5m. How does that compare to you guy's ?

                  It sounds like the General

                  It say FPL General wrote it.
                  Your TV is average.

                  A) Dunk

                  B) Montoya
