Which players did early Wildcarders sign for Gameweek 3?

Under 10% of Fantasy Premier League managers played their Wildcard for Gameweek 3.

After two weeks of the campaign, 6.8% of players worldwide pulled the trigger to create themselves a new squad.

That was 2.4% more than played their Wildcards in Gameweek 2, just 4.4% of managers shaking things up at the first hurdle.

Worldwide chip usage for Gameweek 3

So far, 11.3% of managers have played their Wildcards.

Not surprisingly, it was the most popular chip for Gameweek 3, as the majority of FPL players hope to use the others later in the campaign.

The Wildcard has certainly been the talk of the town in the Fantasy Football Scout community this week, so it is helpful to have a look at the Wildcard templates both overall and among the current top 10,000 managers.

Understandably, Sterling is the most popular player in Wildcards for Gameweek 3, chosen in 73.0% of them.

Following his four goals in two games, Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) is just behind the Manchester City man, currently sat in 61.2% of Wildcard squads.

Snapped up by a similar number of managers was Sheffield United’s budget option John Lundstram (£4.1m).

His 14-point haul in Gameweek 2 has convinced 61.2% of Wildcarders of his ability to offer value this season.

Despite much of the pre-season debate revolving around whether or not we should have Sterling or Kevin de Bruyne (£9.6m), those who have Wildcarded early simply asked ‘why not both?’

The Belgian midfielder is the second-most popular option in his position among those who went back to the drawing board for Gameweek 3.

These early-movers have also largely ditched Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), opting to spread the cash elsewhere.

In order to facilitate this, 46% of these managers have opted for Sadio Mané (£11.5m) as their coverage for the Liverpool attack.

They have also moved away from the Reds’ defence following a disappointing start to the season.

Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) is the most fashionable of Liverpool stoppers with 36.5% presence in overall Wildcard squads for Gameweek 3, with Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) not earning enough interest to make the top-five in this position.

Manchester United players are also proving popular, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.6m), Anthony Martial (£7.7m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.7m) in the template.

Number of chips used by managers in the current top 10k

Even though those currently in the upper echelons of the game are still, to some extent, skewed by chip usage, it is still interesting to see who some of these managers have turned to in order to press home their advantage.

Their Wildcard template picture is actually remarkably similar to the overall one, the only differences coming in the budget areas.

Lewis Dunk (£4.6m) has been turned to with no Liverpool defenders making the cut, while Todd Cantwell (£4.6m) is in 33.9% of top 10k Wildcard squads.

Just 10.2% of managers have used the Triple Captain so far, with 2.3% of them deploying it for Gameweek 3.

Kane appears to have been the chief recipient of this enhanced armband among the current top 10,000, while Sterling, Rashford and Mané also received attention for it.

    I wasn't considering to WC this early, but now that I see my rivals WC team I think I should have.
    Not only he has a great team, I'm also 0.3m short to copy it and 8 of his players are about to rise in the next few days.

    Did I already f**k up or will I be able to recover from this?

    1. DAZZ

      Can you recover 14 days into the season?

        Losing so much team value could be devastating, specially this early on.

      You've 35.9 GWs left.

      With 21 games of 380 played I reckon the season is over for you.

        Important part of being competitive in late stages of the season is having good enough team value...

        1. Regin
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          I got pukki and rash at 6.5 and 8.5 respectively. Now they are 6.8 and 8.7

          this is a bit of a myth, people go crazy trying to build up every 0.1m there is

          When you don't have a great team value you have to play the game slightly differently. There are plenty of options out there, you just have to look ahead of the curve instead of bungling in players after they score a hat-trick you want them when they score that hat-trick.

          1. Regin
            • 2 Years

            In case of pukki, he seems to be real goal machine.

          Depends on the season.

          Team value went out the window last season with the Kane injury and us being blessed with Doherty, Jimmy & other cheapies.

          Don't be stressing it yet, let your players play.

          Honestly it's overrated.
          At the end of the day, higher TV at the end of the season will benefit you in 1 or 2 positions max.

          Its easy to panic and be blinded by the first two weeks. You’ll have more than a good enough team value by the late stages regardless.

    5. TAT

      I'm in the same position. Decided to wait and see how this GW plays out, but the more I look at my rivals' teams, the more I wish I had wildcarded.

      1. droginexile
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        yeah the likes of Cantwell, Martin Kelly Lewis Dunk and Marcus Rashford wont be near the top of their positions at the end of the season. Even the likes of Lundstram and Pukki could be out of fashion in 3-4 weeks. Its very early yet for making big calls about your season being over.
        think about Moise Kean, Pepe etc, fallen but will be able to be picked up later at a cheaper price. Only Marcos alonso & Batman have fallen by more than 0.1 yet so although you might not be gaining team value you wont be losing lots either unless you are very unlucky

      Pukki can blank 3 weeks in a row and everybody will start selling him. It can happened with every player. 2-3 gws, and situation will be different. Arsenal will have a good fixtures, new players will hit some form etc. U should be step ahead. Don't think about players that got double digit hauls and don't try to pick every of them. Use u're transfers and WC smart, choose the ones u believe most and try to find some underrated/underachievement players.
      Don't need to buy "Pukki" every GW. His hattrick in the past. Try to predict the future, and if u'll get that right, money and points comes.

      You'll be fine. The wildcard you have and he doesn't will give you a boost when you play it and in a few weeks when the injuries mount and some of his key players aren't playing well, or at all, you have the chance to catch up. Keep making good decisions.

      Might swap this week.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        I don’t have access to all data available to FFS members but looking at average player positions Wood was the firthest forward for Burnley in both GW1&2. Was he getting in good positions but failing to capitalise?

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Trouble with that bubble is that Woods nails it over the next few.
      It's tough that call tbh, I prefer Barnes but I think the best play is to bail on both.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 5 Years

        I need to decide on replacement for Murray tonight, burget is 6.6m, any others spring to mind bar Wood and Barnes?

      Think his lack of ability and (perceived) reputation in the dressing keeps him in the team, which is detrimental to United.

      I remember last season Graham Souness saying that Pogba needs to set an example to young players like Lingard. They're the same age! I don't know if it's because he broke into the team at the same time as Rashford so people think he is Rashford's age.

      Shall we sing him for Utd?

      1. Would Ed Woodward

        Might have Llorente on the way, assume it's to improve the handsomeness of our squad.

        1. MeatPieSausageRoll
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Hes a forward centre apparently. Lets play him with rashy

        2. Mr Peanutbutter
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          he certainly won't improve the handsomeness of their play

    I cant recall seeing early season bandwagon this big that is the
    Pukki express
    He started 2% ownership and now well over 20% and rising (same ownership as kdb!)
    Look out if he scores tonight. There’s no brakes on this train!

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Yep, I'm missing out on so much by not having him.

    2. Bird Raymond
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get him if he scores this week.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Who you moving to bring him in?
        For me likely King and looks like it will be close to 0.5m difference shortly. Would need to be 2 moves for me as I fancy keeping Kane for now
        Or we all stay strong and hope our “differentials” out perform Pukki

        1. Bird Raymond
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Spoilt for choice on who to move on for him really - Jiminez, Wilson or Kean. All could be done in one move.

          1. Permian23
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            I think all 3 of those would normally outscore him; its just that Wolves are hampered by Europe, Bournemouth not clicking yet, Kean not playing yet

            1. Bird Raymond
              • 8 Years
              27 days, 3 hours ago

              Yes quite frustrating so far, would ideally like to show patience with them, whichever one I get rid of will of course start firing, but tough when every man and his dog has Pukki.

          2. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            Would probably keep Jiménez of that lot. At least you can ‘downgrade’
            Kean seems logical Everton attack is lacking

            1. Permian23
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              27 days, 3 hours ago

              Agree. Wolves have had tough fixtures and Jiminez is class.

    What you reckon about the game tomz Slouchy?

    1. Slouch87
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      1-2 or 1-3 I'm afraid. First proper test for The Blades and I think the gulf in quality between the 2 sides will become apparent. Concede early goal , have to chase the game which leaves them open to the Leicester attack.
      Many will disagree with this opinion though !

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Nah I can see the same tbh. Big game for Deno and Egan who will be marking Vardy most likely. Just their quality in midfield that scares me, if fuch plays over Chillwell then we might exploit that. But even he is solid... Hoping for a 1-0/2-1, set pieces massive. Excited either way, can't remember last time I watched a game with this much quality at the lane 🙂

      Usage I mean

    2. Bird Raymond
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      The double gameweek captaincys were so underwhelming last season I'm not surprised many are using it early. I'm content with my extra 12 points from Salah on opening day.

      1. GloryManUnited
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Pretty sure Kun hauled last year on DGW...56 points I think it was. Gw25 or 27 I can't remember for sure.

        1. Bird Raymond
          • 8 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Yes, it was a hastily arranged double gameweek, everyone went with Sane for a one pointer instead! Having him as captain that week when many didn't have him at all turned my season around.

          1. Permian23
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            Using it early is a bet against a double gameweek delivering.

            This year, with Liverpool in the Club World Cup, they'll certainly have a double GW....and are aiming to win the league.

            So big risk using it early this season

            1. Bird Raymond
              • 8 Years
              27 days, 2 hours ago

              It could be a crap double gameweek though, or Salah/Mane could be injured/out of form etc. Other than the year Sanchez and Aguero went nuts it has been an overrated chip imo.

    3. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 2 hours ago

      If its the current top 10k not last seasons top 10k then it makes sense. People who've used it more likely to be top 10k than people who haven't so there's gonna be a high proportion of people in the top 10k who've used it already.

      in eastern europe a "j" is pronounced as a "y".

      in spain and portugal, a "jo" is a "ho"

    Salah, Sterling, Siggy*, Martial, Dendonk
    Pukki, King, Greenwood

    1FT 0.3 ITB

    Thinking Robbo + Siggy > AWB + KDB (-4)

      a good idea, though Maguire is an option instead of AWB

    Is Josh King Out worth a -4 due to his price drop and what options do you suggest me to swap to?

    I already have Pukki

      No, all goo other options are 6.0m, you have loads of time.

      Do Maupay/Andre Gray next week.

        Maupay and Gray both are not nailed, bad options I’d rather the likes of Jota and I’d have to take another -4 to get Vardy Rashford or Firmino

          exactly, so wait as King is nailed.

          Maupay is awesome. you have 0.4m room. also King may deliver.

          Deeney is out for ages so one of Welbeck or Gray must play - Gray was great in pre-season

          Maupay being managed in slowly.

          Also Wood at Burnley.

      Wait to see which 6.0m is the best, Maupay could be awesome. gray will play now deeney injured. also ings.

        Sorry have I missed news on Josh King?

      Do you think martial will get more points than trosard and king over the next few gws. As greenwood might get you a point. I have trosard. Looked good one goal and one disallowed. Wait and see what happens this week. But to answer your question. No
