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.

      For people.who watched the game how did Guilbert play? Is there a chance that he stays in frist team?

        Birmingham Mail ratings. 8 bit generous but didn't hurt his chances. One of reasons I sold Heaton on WC was open up 3rd Villa slot for maybe 4.4m defender

          @kiwi Trezeguet's rating is 8, more than McGinn and Grealish at 7.5.

          Nailed at left wing as Jota looks to rotate with El Ghazi in right wing?

          Can he be better than other mid?

            manager mentioned mcginn as goal threat. seems they all work around wesley up top.

            pick the in form one

            Trez played RW last 2 and El Ghazi dropped as poor but came on and scored a great goal. Smith wants competition for every spot and it's looking like working

              what price Trez?

                6m I think. I think he puts in a good shift in attack and defence but prefer others for FPL on what I've seen so far

                  he's at a price level you can move to other good options, so worth a punt.

                  tbh i was more impressed with Brighton/Trossard maupay and mcginn

                  1. iL PiStOlErO
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      I had him in my presewson draft but changed to Mcginn before season started. At the end it was good choice considering first 3 GW but I think Trezeguet is the one to watch, he could have good season, good player.

                        what about trossard?

                        1. iL PiStOlErO
                            2 months, 23 days ago

                            He played very good last game, think he is nailed. I think he can be discovery this season. I know its Belgian league but his stats last season are great. Think he can be nice option, especially under new manager, Brighton can maybe score more goals this season.

                              the stats are amazing.

                        also, with Palace and NEW in big trouble, i reckon Villa might attack a few games thinking 36 points is enough.

                        1. Kiwivillan
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 23 days ago

                          Huh? I think we're aiming for more than scraping 40pts

                            2 months, 23 days ago

                            i meant its safe to attack games, 2 teams half down already

                            1. Kiwivillan

                              2 months, 23 days ago

                              Smith MO is attack every team. 2 weeks and 1 game into season a bit soon to be writing off teams though I had Newcastle and Palace in my relegation predictions pre season

                    • iL PiStOlErO
                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        5.5

                        He is only 5.5, the cheapest. McGinn 5.6, Grealish 6.0

                i was impressed with him. Got forward a fair amount. i foresee some att rerturns.

                as a heaton owner, it wasn't fun watching their defense but, as a mcginn owner, they're a fun to team to watch.

                    Nice to hear, in preseason he was really good

                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Cheers all. Hope he will keep that spot but the important thing is that he finally got involved.

                    How’s this for -4

                    Robbo. Wilson >> awb. Firmino

                    1. Joggers Nipple

                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      dont get Firm imo

                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      I own three of those four but wouldnt sell Robbo for Bobby myself. Still praying for a Bobby hattie today though 😉

                        I still have vvd if that makes a diff?

                          kind of does make a diff tbh, not the worst move at all if you go with it...GL

                          200 points for 7.0m is a bargain.

                          normally costs 12m

                          Leave Robbo and VVD. Robbo can get 10 assists and 2 goals, VVD 5 to 8 goals

                              he had 4 last year, without VAR watching penalty box fouls/holding

                        its hard for Firmino to score unless CB are bad. Arsenals are bad.

                          You know it’s Sokratis/Luiz not Mustafi/Koscielny, right?

                          Slightly different proposition.

                      keep Robbo all year.

                      Mane is the man at LIV

                      Well, hold Robbo for the next two at least! Wilson got a nice run of fixtures from gw4 onwards, wouldn't do that just now.

                    Question: Do you want a team to win a pen if you own the opposition GK?

                    For me I do in the first half but not in the second if he still has CS

                    1. zotter
                      • 10 Years
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      Sounds right yes. Also depends how likely he is to keep a sheet. If I owned Alison or Ederson I wouldn’t want them to concede a penalty at any time if they still have a sheet

                      1. CrouchDown
                        • 7 Years
                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        Agreed

                      • 10 Years
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      Pretty much no with a cs intact but yes otherwise. Also depends a bit who it's against and thus who's taking it.

                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      if he has already conceded an even number of goals, and your competitors don't own the penalty taker, then yes.

                      Didn't watch the game, are Villa that good?

                        Yup, doing Sterling to Grealish soon!
                        On a serious note, from mates at the game last night, they reckon their home games will be epic (atmosphere was seemingly unreal) and that Wesley looked very good...which surprised me as I wasnt impressed with him at all from his first two games!

                          It finally came together for him this GW. Great run into space and finish for his goal, assisted the assister for the second and was generally great with his hold up play. On pens too, and you’d have to think that a team with Grealish in it is going to win its share of pens.

                          I’ve had him from the start and, though worried after he was hooked early last GW, am happy to be holding him with the upcoming fixtures.

                            Was incredible run. Had to rewatch several times thinking how did he get away from the CBs so easily

                          I watched Villas first game and Wesley looked like he should be working at the snack bar not on the pitch, so impressive if he's come on that much.

                        No but we were unlucky against Bournemouth apart from silly individual errors so 3pts from first 3 games is about right. Some nice fixtures coming up

                          I like a good old fashioned finisher, but think he'll dry up.

                          Looking at Kean and Abraham when they're up and running, for his place.

                      Very impressed with Norwich, Villa and Sheffield so far.

                        And not at all impressed by Newcastle, Palace and Bournemouth.

                          100% agree.

                        Agreed, chance all could stay up on evidence thus far!

                          I'll be shocked if Sheffield go down. They are too well drilled not to stay up. Norwich are going to need to keep scoring goals to stay up but I think they have the fire power. Villa I'm not too sure, I don't think they quite have enough goals in them to account for their poor defence. But they will put up a strong fight.

                          Yes, doesn't look like neither are gonna go back down

                            no, palace are poor and Newcastle worse.

                            18th between SHU/NOR/BHA etc

                                SOU more of a chance to go down than BHA imo

                                  yes i agree

                                  watford see, weaker too, and west ham drifting. could be good for BHA

                                    Yep Watford and West Ham look kak too. But both teams have a bit too much quality to end up in a relegation fight.

                                Let's be honest though, as soon as Newcastle appointed Steve Bruce they were going back down. Palace too reliant on Zaha. I don't think Sheffield or Brighton will be fighting for 18th. I think Villa, Norwich, Bournemouth and Southampton will fight it out.

                            Villa is weak. Everton was totally over them at their home

                              2 months, 23 days ago

                              Agree. See my comment above. They're not quite good enough in either attack or defence but I think they will atleast put up a very strong fight.

                              Lol there's more than one way to skin a cat. We were all over Bournemouth. Smith talked after the game about catching Everton on the counter and Villa 3 shots on target to Everton 1

                              tbf they still won 2 nil against a team that many so called experts are predicting a top 6 finish for!

                                Chelsea, Wolves and Leicester are miles ahead of Everton.

                                  I wouldnt go that far mate as Leicester have looked a bit meh but Everton def overrated imo

                              Everton 34 shots 5 on target 1 goal

                              Which team's fans should be more concerned?

                                Now show us the defensive stats...Villa are in big trouble mate.

                                  2 months, 23 days ago

                                  Tottenham(14) West Ham(13) and Burnley(12) and conceded more shots on target in 2 games than Villa(11) have in 3

                                    Villa havent played City yet which makes the above skewed for want of a stronger word!

                                In attack, no brainer. A decent attack would have scored the 2 big chances at least.

                                      Newcastle are going down.

                                      The other two spots will be between:
                                      Palace, Villa, Bournemouth, Norwich, Southampton. Palace and Villa looking the most likely.

                            Penalties numbers haven't changed imo
                            Not that much when they said VAR + penalties

                              Penalties haven't increased significantly anywhere VAR been used. As much chance to rule out one unfairly given in past as give more not given. Not sure why so many assumed VAR = extra penalties

                            a very pleasant surprise to see Wesley score, hopefully some price rise for me to cash out after his favourable fixtures

                                Fair play for being patient with him as he looked piss poor in the first two games! Many Villa fans rate him highly though so he could well kick on...GL

                                    Would you be looking to offload Coleman if you owned?
                                    Thinking Digne or no one from the Everton defence.

                                    Lots of options around the 5.5m mark. Have double Liv defence too and thinking I need to make some defensive changes.

                                    Ryan.
                                    Coleman, Robbo, VVD, Lundstram, A Smith.

                                        One Everton defender is fine just not two. Coleman out is a bit fickle, u picked Coleman because he is cheaper and his attackin intent. Give him time imo

                                          1 Eve defender is enough- Digne looking a lot more dangerous FPL wise than Coleman it must be said. Digne looking like a top pick for the season it seems. Ownership is another factor.

                                          Not sure Coleman is worth the 0.5m or so less than Digne now. I can downgrade Robbo or VVD to make up for it too if needed.

                                          Looking to be more proactive this season than normal and that means getting on the guys who are looking close to must haves. Digne may be but Coleman def is not looking it atm.

                                              I get your point and agree that digne is nearly essential given his ownership especially amongst top managers. I don't have Coleman or digne but when I wildcard I will get digne one hundred percent

                                                You have 6 WC starters currently.
                                                If you think Kane fails vs Arsenal then a hit gets another.

                                          Im hopeless, what on earth to do with Sigurdsson?
                                          Fixtures are amazing, proven fpl player?

                                          I was even thinking to lose Salah if he blanks instead of Sigurdsson.

                                            I sold last week and dreamt last night he scored a hatty. Getting those FPL dreams again.
                                            Luckily he did nothing. How did he look?

                                            If you dont have any other issue, get rid for Martial/Lanzini.

                                            I have Richarlison and probably keeping for another week. Have too many other issues to sort out...

                                              Ditch imo, if he blanks again next week it's really goin to start hurting you. He even got subbed today which is bad.
                                              Plus he will price drop again no doubt. Who's he playing next? That's the thing probably that makes u want to keep him right

                                            Magnus Carlsen just did Stones to Otamendi with his FT this week, I know Stones is Injured but that sounds like a strange move..

                                              Goal incoming or decent form to keep the spot.

                                              Sounds like a short-term move until WC.

                                                Otamendi looked like scoring in the last man city game I saw, was it Vs spurs? I think so, he was definetly having a go at goal

                                                  Well i take some back. Only bench boost + WC used, and that´s not even that bad for first round where you can basically pick 15 guys. It´s obv. not as strong as dgw but still "okish."

                                                the fact that heaton didnt get a single save point vs everton speaks volumes about how woeful they actually are

                                                    They have massive problems if they cannot score.

                                                  No Man Utd or Spurs this week. Dammit!

                                                  I still think Utd are a trap though....

                                                    I went without Man U attackers on WC. Could be a mistake but preferred the team I made without. Hopefully Wesley and McGinn 15pts cover Martial and Rashford this week

                                                      Maybe this week, but I definitely wouldn't fancy them to over the season

                                                  Feels wrong to lose Heaton on WC but got to trust the logic of Adrian short term to semi cover getting rid of VVD and getting 4.5 instead of 4m forced me to stick with Wesley for 3rd forward slot

                                                  How does Moise Keane looked last night??
                                                  Is he the answer to Everton's goal draught???

                                                    No shots 1 key pass in 33 mins. Someone said he looked unfit

                                                    Dreadful in my opinion - looked like he was more on yellow cards than goals.

                                                      Good 'in my opinion' shout. Round here that caveat is rarely used and makes people sound extremely pompous

                                                        I think it just ensures you are stating it's not gospel, but how you saw things. Nothing wrong with that

                                                          This is what I'm saying, absolutely agreed.

                                                    Thanks. Plus I've noticed that the way I perceive things often conflicts with the opinion of established pundits (or friends that are much more knowledgeable on football in general). So approach with caution 😉

                                                    Considering the Everton disaster last night, I can save my FT for now.
