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.

    Sigurdson to...?

    1. Permian23

      Martial. Done already. Painful for me.

        this, easiest transfer i ever made (Rich for me tho not Siggy)

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          i was so wrong. I lost 0.1m too on Siggie.

          That Everton problem article was spot on; that front 4 don't function.

    1 blank does not suddenly make your pick a bad option - it’s a 38 gw season!

    At present looking at saving my FT for GW4.

    Whats your thoughts?

    Heaton
    VVD, Digne, Zinc
    Salah, Perez*, Stirling, McGinn, Dendoncker
    C.Wilson*, Kane

    Pope, Greenwood, Montoya, Rico

    0.0ITB

    If Perez blanks again i'll being looking at Mount or Cantwell.

    Thoughts?

    1. Permian23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Agree, Perez isn't working and Mount is central to an attacking chelsea. Perez will drop he is highly owned. Cantwell might get dropped when players return from injury, whereas Lampard is Mount's Dad.

        Would be Perez > Mount then for sure i feel.

        cheers

        Large Ownership doesn’t affect drops. Drops are based on the Percentage of drops not the number. So a player with 10 owners is as likely to drop as one with 1m. For example Robo and Salah have each lost over 400,000 owners and haven’t dropped, but Kieta has dropped in price having lost around 20,000 owners

          Correct though high ownership panic selling more likely to be contagious

    2. luk46
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Pretty good team, could keep Wilson due to fixtures after even though Pukki should be a great option, also to do Perez > Martial, I guess...

      YNWA!

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Thinking the same about keeping Wilson due to fixtures too. Couldnt afford Martial unless I did a hit so perez > mount is the option for me if he doesnt fire this GW. Cheers lad, YNWA!

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          FWIW eye test said Perez looked awful, LEI loads better when Albrighton came on

  4. Stand By Mee
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Just realized Westwood is about to drop in price 🙁

    Should I transfer him out for:

    A) Douglas Luiz (4.5 - cry)
    B) Cantwell 4.6 (4.6 - nor)
    C) Ceballos (5.6 - TOT)
    D) Keep Westwood (5.5 - LIV) and take -.0.1 un the chin

    Obviously Cdeballos is the better pick but, that 1 million in the bank enables me to later do Wilson/Greenwood to Pukki/Barnes or something similar.

    Ederson-Button
    TAA-Dunk-Mings-Lundstroom-Kelly
    Salah-Sterling-Martial-Westwood-Dendonker
    Kane-Wilson-Greenwood

    1. Permian23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Ceballos has really hard fixtures, wait and watch. Try another 4.5m as a place holder.

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Agree on this too.

    The guy who scored 44 points tonight triple captained Engels?.. That's enough for me. Goodnight

      lol, night.

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He probably has 21 other teams that he entered this week as well.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Exactly. Surely I'm not the only one who thinks this kind of s*** ruins part of the game. Week to week scores are completely useless. Total number of teams is completely useless. There should be a separate game for people who just want a one week thing.

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          i agree. the market prices are chaos on one good game, until "casuals" lose interest. A lot of people around me have already triple captained...some Pukki.

          If a player has a good fixture followed by bad, he goes up then down the next week,

          i lost 0.1m on Siggie this week, against villa - weakest team out there possibly.

          They should make divisions on rank, 2m people in each Division.

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Yes, prices! I knew there were some other obvious reasons I hate it. So many more teams that aren't real/legitimate that influence the market nonetheless.
            This week after just today takes the cake for the most ridiculous team I've seen. A 4.5 defender from one of the weakest teams in the league triple captained, over Aguero, with two attackers from the other team also in his 11. Not only was that something crazy stupid that got lucky with a clean sheet and bonus (granted 9 is by no means a fantastic score) but he also had the cheap mids for the second goal and assist whilst again having a defender against them again.

  6. Would Ed Woodward

    My god, Walcott is even worse than DCL.

    1. IRBOX ⚽

      This too. Should have won tonight if both took their chances

      1. Permian23

        been saying that for 3 weeks now...

    2. EMBOLOFAN

      too far

  7. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    These are the current most owned players in teams in the FFS league - Pukki is now in more than two thirds of teams!

    Pope 50.5%
    Button 46.0%

    Lundstram 84.5%
    Digne 64.0%
    van Dijk 51.5%
    Wan-Bissaka 32.5%
    Kelly 31.0%

    Sterling 94.5%
    Salah 59.0%
    Martial 54.0%
    Dendoncker 53.0%
    De Bruyne 45.0%

    Pukki 68.0%
    Kane 58.0%
    Greenwood 36.0%

      Scary time to be a non Pukki owner but I’m confident in my decision to resist

    2. Mr Peanutbutter
      • 1 Year

      there's no way lundstram is in 85% of teams...

    3. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Lundstram is 31.3% according to live FPL.
      Not sure where you've got those figures from?

          It’s ok mate, they still had a low xGc and should have won the match. Always much better at Goodison so could easily clean against a tiresome Wolves post Europa League

          1. Permian23

            I would agree...except i just saw my mates 9new) WC team....

              We always think others teams are amazing when ours don’t do well. Just get rid of Siggy and keep the defensive double up imo.

          1. Permian23
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            he now has:

            Adrian
            AWB/Zinch/Lundstram
            Martial/Mane/KDB/Sterling/Ceballos
            Kane/Pukki

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Don’t like Adrian, Zinchenko is only good for another 2 matches, Ceballos is very punty. I wouldn’t worry too much and he is starting Lundstram every GW? Not good

              1. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                he has Pieters on the bench.

              2. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                he says Adrian>pope/Henderson
                Zinchenko > MCI def/Coleman/Maguire

              3. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                agree ceballos a risk. his fixtures are bad now, but he's a player and come late sept he's2.5m underpriced

                I worry about Mane, Martial I have covered now.

                Zinc is good for more than 2 matches surely, Mendy needs a month to get fit

        I honestly think Maupay/Kean/Abraham can become massive bandwagons soon - like pooki

      Same here and Heaton. Great finish

  11. EMBOLOFAN
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    perhaps the most frustrating thing about siggy is that his underlying stats arent wildly different to last season. ~500min xa and averaging a shot every 35-40mins or so. id honestly keep him for watford at home (only have 1ft), especially if mount doesnt deliver, but probably cant stomach the price drops...we’ll see

    1. Permian23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      the price drop, and failure in the last 2easy games, has forced me off him, for now - as well

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        the underlying stats hardly constitute a success but definitely not a failure either

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It’s Wolves at home next who are always pretty tight. Problem is Silva - if he is out of favour for some reason and getting hooked after 60 it’s a no go for 8 mil

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        ah why did i think it was watford? forget it then!

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          just played watford, haha

      2. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Is it Siggie's fault? or do he and Richarlison + STR not work?

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          its mostly just variance, should have scored gw1 and set up a sitter for richarlison gw2. small sample size so can get pretty stark results

      3. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Siggie and Richarlison only works with a mobile striker, and width from wing backs. Else they both want to play no.10

        They need a bulldozer/Lukaku back.

        1. EMBOLOFAN

            I know but opposition defences have worked out not to concentrate men in the centre, as the CF is no threat and it just makes space out wide for Digne etc.

            Siggie is crowded as a deep playmaker now and Richarlison is not a false 9....

      4. Pukki Blinders

        He isn't out of favour, just had a woeful game.

      Feck the stats, trust the Eye, Toffees are shite.
      Move on.

        I must agree, it isnt pretty.

      2. EMBOLOFAN

        ive watched 90mins of every everton game. the stats come directly from the games. theyve created chances

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          yes they have, but they cannot execute.

      3. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Eye test was fine, they looked immense in their build up at times (especially opening 20mins). good xG, 64% possession away from home, just can’t finish at the moment so would avoid all attacking options

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • 2 Years

          hopefully kean starts next week

          clearly. they need a bulldozer no 9

          Keep the faith then, go and Mossad the Toffee boards and see how the blood feel, it ain't pretty cause it's fecking ugly.

          Flecking disgrace those lightweights represent a proud working class. Pffft

            the issue is a real target man.

            all other teams with this system have that.

            they have calvert lewin. They need a striker

              They need a good kick up the Arse flecking lightweights, anyone would think those idiots came from the middle class Weedy Boys.

            Let’s give Sokratis and Luiz a few matches before we write them off. I don’t think it’s that bad a pairing...Sokratis more resolute in defense but less mobile, Luiz is a good complement. Torreira when up to speed with give them cover. I’m cautiously optimistic, but, then, that’s why all my fellow Gooners call me an imposter.

            The goals were pretty soft so it's worrying if doubled up past Digne. Villa were anything but special but neither are their next two opponents so maybe hold on McGinn, Wesley and Grealish. Don't buy anything Everton atm. Maybe Digne although he was somewhat average today at least.

      the scores and player ownership are massively skewed by early chips/short term form.

            Sterling will top score the whole game this year, and everyone will perma-captain him.

            600 points.

            get him .... yesterday.

          • 9 Years

          he will get marked and pushed wide.

          I rarely bet on footy nowadays - don't feel the need. I bought him into my fantasy team is my equivalent.

          I think Norwich will score quite freely but will also concede shedloads and struggle. To hit 15 he needs 11 in 36 games is not unreasonable though.

          1. Permian23
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            fair enough. they are super attacking, but i think theyll get ironed in too many games. I'd say 13 goals.

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 1 month ago

              A goal every 4 games really? Expect a lot more after what we've seen so far this season and last year in championship

              1. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                yes but because they'll lose heavily many games, and only outlet is him. He'll get marked.

              2. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                Norwich straight back down. too all-out attack.

                1. Pukki Blinders
                  • 1 Year
                  1 year, 1 month ago

                  Too all out attack? That's what makes him so good with his high score involvement.

              3. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                he won't play NEW every week.

                1. Pukki Blinders
                  • 1 Year
                  1 year, 1 month ago

                  He won't play Liverpool every week either, but still scored against them 😉

                  1. Bram

                    Norwich may well go down but take QPR in 2014-15, they finished bottom (30pts) but Charlie Austin still scored 18 .......

    Who’s the best one-week rental for Trossard?

    Already have McGinn.
    I’m priced out of Mount, sadly

    Buendia, Cantwell, Ndidi, Ceballos or Lamela?

    1. Permian23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      none keep him and the transfer

      1. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Keeping means I’ll have to start Lund away against Chelsea

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          plus you save a transfer worth 4 points.

    2. KDB4PREZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Whos fixture is best?
      Am guessing you don’t want him for city game? In same boat

      1. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        i dont have him, but he looks amazing and record awesome.

        just keep him.

      2. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I think Leicester but would prefer Albrighton if I know he’ll start

        Otherwise, Norwich against a porous West Ham defence

        All this is moot if Tross rises as I have 0 ITB

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          look at trossard's history.

          he's a points machine.

        2. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Trossard is a better Charlie Adam.

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      One week transfers are wasteful, what if you need the transfer for an injury or something that pops up in your team?

      1. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        That is very true

      2. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        agree, especially for a player you want back.

        trossard is excellent.

    'Since my hat-trick, half a million fans have bought me on fantasy football!': Teemu Pukki

    1. jia you jia you

      Ah remember the good ole SAS, great strikeforce, and going to Ewood Park a few times with a mate who is a diehard Rovers fan!
      Nothing to do with Pukki or Norwich but...Chris Sutton is an ass and seeing his name on the link made me cringe!

      1. Optimus.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Sutton and Shearer or Suarez and Studge?

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Pukki is a good striker in good form. Shearer was amazing and so was Suarez. Different league.

        2. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          The original SAS was Shearer and Sutton 🙂

      2. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Sutton was awesome for Norwich

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Yup, but the man is still an awful jackass 🙂

        2. zotter
          • 11 Years

          For one year. ThEn one for Blackburn. Before being garbage until he joined celtic

  27. Ashante'Kotoko

    You think Kun will start? What pep said?

    1. Permian23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      no i think he's being phased out. he argued with Pep against Spurs in public.

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Phased out? You're joking, and they hugged and made up when Jesus scored

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          less sure. They did hug it's true, but Pep is managing his minutes and wants sterling up front with Jesus.

          he is upset not playing.

      2. zotter
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I don’t think the argument matters but yes him and Dilva will see reduced mins. Fernandinho too. Pep building the next generation before he goes to Juve

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Still a world class striker, they'd be silly to not use him. I'd say he should be about 50/50 for minutes with Jesus this season, but I agree with Dilva and Fernandinho

          1. zotter
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            I’d say 60:40 in aguero favour but not 90:10 like last year. He is far better than Jesus imo

          2. Permian23
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            i worry he prioritises CL ahead of PL, rests players like KDB and Sterling Sep>dec, Jesus too. Aguero rested now to cover later.

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Rotation has always been a factor with Pep. Yeah everyone will get their turn to rest, but it'll likely only be one game here and there.

              1. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                agree, but he refuses to stand for trouble or complaining. look at Sane and mendy. also Yaya Toure.

                I think Aguero is 3rd choice super sub and cover. I think he'll get league minutes around CL games. Like Mahrez.

            2. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 1 month ago

              FFS scaremongering at its best! True that he def really wants to win the UCL but retaining EPL equally important I'd imagine.

              1. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                I disagree, he needs to win the CL massively.

                to do that he needs his best players (KDB) fresh and fit.

                he won't let them get overplayed; he'll use Mahrez and Silva And Aguero for league games around CL games.

          3. Permian23
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            last season losing KDB really hurt them. He'll protect them soon, him and Sterling.

      3. Sylas

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          we will see. City have almost all their "easy" league games before/after first 4 CL group games

    Headache nest week. Who to bench

    Jota (eve)
    Zouma (SHU)
    Zinch (BRI)
    Pukki (whm)
    C Wilson (lei)
    McGinn (cry)

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Decide after this GW, too early to know form and stuff

      1. zotter
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yep. High on McGinn atm but he probably the logical choice to bench !

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          He will play more like against Bournemouth than vs Everton

      A 9 after your name and you add Pukki to that list...I'm ashamed of you!

      1. zotter

        Lol that’s for completeness. I should have added salah sterling martial vvd robbo too

    Who is the best one week punt in defence next week? I have up to 5.4 to spend.

    1. Permian23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      LEI or CHE player

    2. zotter
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Probably Zouma

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      One week punt on a CS not worth it imo, why not save the FT?

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Planning on playing my wildcard after gw4 and don’t want to play KWP.

        1. Bram
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Holebas could be worth a punt vs Toon.

      2. Bram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        1st international break is a popular wildcard option so I assume that's the plan thus a 1 gw punt.
