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?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 23 days ago

      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

      1. Bye David Silva.

        @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?

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

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

          pick the in form one

        2. Kiwivillan
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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

          1. Permian23
            • 9 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

            what price Trez?

            1. Kiwivillan
              • 6 Years
              11 months, 23 days ago

              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

              1. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                11 months, 23 days ago

                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
                  • 1 Year
                  11 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.

                  1. Permian23
                    • 9 Years
                    11 months, 23 days ago

                    what about trossard?

                    1. iL PiStOlErO
                      • 1 Year
                      11 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.

                      1. Permian23
                        • 9 Years
                        11 months, 23 days ago

                        the stats are amazing.

                        Exactly

                11 months, 23 days ago

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

                1. Kiwivillan
                  • 6 Years
                  11 months, 23 days ago

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

                  1. Permian23
                    • 9 Years
                    11 months, 23 days ago

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

                    1. Kiwivillan
                      • 6 Years
                      11 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

            2. iL PiStOlErO
              • 1 Year
              11 months, 23 days ago

              5.5

              11 months, 23 days ago

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

    2. L S P
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 23 days ago

      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.

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 23 days ago

        Nice to hear, in preseason he was really good

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 23 days ago

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

  2. KDB4PREZ
      11 months, 23 days ago

      Sterling/Pukki
      Salah/Deulofeu
      Who gets more long term?

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

        First. Probably

      2. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        first by miles.

    • zotter
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 23 days ago

      How’s this for -4

      Robbo. Wilson >> awb. Firmino

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        dont get Firm imo

      2. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        11 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 😉

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

          I still have vvd if that makes a diff?

          1. jia you jia you
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

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

          2. Permian23
            • 9 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

            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

            1. jia you jia you
              • 3 Years
              11 months, 23 days ago

              8 goals for VVD lol c'mon get a grip mate!

              1. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                11 months, 23 days ago

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

              2. Permian23
                • 9 Years
                11 months, 23 days ago

                he's huge and great in the air.

        2. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

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

          1. The Artist
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

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

            Slightly different proposition.

            Just saying.

      3. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        keep Robbo all year.

        Mane is the man at LIV

      4. luk46
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        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.

    • CrouchDown
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 23 days ago

      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
        11 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
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          Agreed

      2. Bram
        • 11 Years
        11 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.

      3. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        11 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.

      4. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        in my case there is only upside

      5. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        defo if pogba is taking it.

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

        1. jia you jia you
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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!

          1. The Artist
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

            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.

            1. Kiwivillan
              • 6 Years
              11 months, 23 days ago

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

          2. Bucky Barnes
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

            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.

        2. Kiwivillan
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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

        (dont you ppl know I'm Pukki's biggest fan!)

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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.

    • Bram

        Oops reply fail to above.

    • Nabs Kebabs

      Very impressed with Norwich, Villa and Sheffield so far.

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

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

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          100% agree.

      2. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

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

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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.

      3. Zlatanzo
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 23 days ago

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

        1. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          no, palace are poor and Newcastle worse.

          18th between SHU/NOR/BHA etc

          1. Zlatanzo
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 23 days ago

            SOU more of a chance to go down than BHA imo

            1. Permian23
              • 9 Years
              11 months, 23 days ago

              yes i agree

            2. Permian23
              • 9 Years
              11 months, 23 days ago

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

              1. Nabs Kebabs
                • 8 Years
                11 months, 23 days ago

                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

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • 8 Years
          11 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!

          1. Nabs Kebabs
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

            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

        4. Kiwivillan
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          After 3 games

          Villa 36 shots 14 on target 4 goals
          Everton 34 shots 5 on target 1 goal

          Which team's fans should be more concerned?

          1. Nabs Kebabs
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 23 days ago

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

            1. Kiwivillan
              • 6 Years
              11 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

              1. jia you jia you
                • 3 Years
                11 months, 23 days ago

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

                1. Kiwivillan
                  • 6 Years
                  11 months, 23 days ago

                  Spurs away skewed our defensive stats

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

          xG in the game:

          Villa: 0.73
          Everton: 1.13

          1. Kiwivillan

            xG Villa 1 - 2 Bournemouth

            Villa 2.38
            Bmouth 1.64

            Football's a funny old game

                  Nope.

                  Newcastle are going down.

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

        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

        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.

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

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 23 days ago

        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. marzo
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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.

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 23 days ago

            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

      2. Stoneleigh
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 23 days ago

        I have Coleman, he’s going nowhere. Could easily have had an assist last night if C-L wasn’t a donkey.

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

        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?

        1. Netley Lucas
          • 5 Years

          Looks like being dropped.

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

        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

      Heaton -- Pope
      Taa Vvd Digne Zincheko -- Rico
      Sterling Kdb Martial Perez* -- Dendocker
      Kane King* -- Wickham

      *already lost 0.1m each on these and will loose more if i dont get rid

      A: Save FT as Perez (BOU) has good fixture and get rid of him in gw5
      B: Perez > Mount / Mcginn
      C: Perez + Heaton >> 4m gk + Lanzini (-4)..happy to have just 1 gk

          • 6 Years
          11 months, 23 days ago

          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

        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

        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.

                Many here do come across as preachers of their own gospel

          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 😉

          My plan GW4 was to get in Dinge for Pereira (LEI).

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

          Will wait to see all games but how does King and Perez to Mcginn/Mount and Barnes sound for minus 4?

          Current team

          Pope Heaton
          Walker Digne Dunk KWP Pieters
          Salah KDB Martial Perez Dendonker
          Kane King Pukki

            Don't need to Barnes-4 and get Mount

            Wouldn't do it for a hit
