How to use upside-chasing to make up ground fast in FPL

In a season so far characterised by frustration and disappointment, I have been thinking about many of the different factors at play in Fantasy Premier League.

There is just so much I want to talk about when it comes to this game. Group Think, Fear, Ownership, Eye Test, Captaincy and Upside-chasing. The list is endless.

I’ve played Fantasy Football of some sort for the best part of 15 years, like many of you, I’ve been obsessed with it since the days of BBC Fantasy Football (read Stelios Giannakopoulos, Tim Cahill and Morten Gamst Pedersen).

I’ve been a part of the Fantasy Football Scout community for a long time

The game has evolved drastically since those days. Somewhere in the middle of the 2011/12 season, I discovered Fantasy Football Scout and was blown away by what I witnessed.

The community here was amazing. People were equally infatuated with this game as I was and we were all working together as essentially a ‘study-group’ to beat the ‘casuals’ (read: my rival) with the text-books handed out to us by Mark.

It took half a season at FFS to rise from mid-table in my mini-league to winning it by the end of the season. I haven’t lost my main mini-league since.

The likes of Doosra, Christina, Epic Fail and Champ from the FFS Community took me under their wings and very soon it became fairly easy to beat my ‘casual rival’, leading me to my own FFS adversary in Triggerlips.

I’ll admit, the urge to beat him might have led to a couple of strong finishes I’ve had. Strong rivalry can actually be a great driver of good FPL decisions.

Having a rival in this game can be a greater driver of FPL decisions

Your game tightens up as you have seemingly more to lose. I’ll quote Criss Jami here – “Together, we form a necessary paradox; not a senseless contradiction.”

Today, Triggerlips and I are very cordial with each other and he even made a couple of really good recommendations for my honeymoon in New Zealand last year. Community for the win!

It takes little time to discover some basic principles of playing FPL but after that, you’re on your own.

Once you know the importance of budget distribution, captaincy picks (never captain a defender), assessing form and fixture, how you fare in FPL essentially comes down to your individual style.

There are many ways to skin a cat and, in my opinion, none of them is wrong.

You need to find your identity as an FPL player. If you are going to get sleepless nights going without Mohamed Salah (£12.4m), don’t do it. It doesn’t suit your personality. It’s not good for your blood pressure and you don’t end up having fun. You’re better off playing the odds and percentages game because that is where your comfort zone lies.

Whether or not to own Salah has been a polarising concept in FPL over recent years

Personally for me though, there is no greater rush than a bold, against-the-grain, differential FPL call coming through. I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the greener side of these calls more often than not.

Having that differential come through makes you feel like you’re Stone Cold Steve Austin having just stunned Vince McMahon and you’re pouring beer into your mouth with both hands. Such a rush!

I landed a similar stunner on my rival last year. I was on the verge of losing my mini-league last year for the first time in six years. He was leading by 50 points in January (I keep telling him it’s because I was getting married and was busy with prep) and I needed to rely on some classic ‘upside-chasing’ to close this gap.

What is upside-chasing you ask? Upside-chasing is all about finding high impact players that have the potential to gain you a lot of ground in a very short time.

It’s about finding those 20 to 40 point swings that shoot you up the rankings very quickly.

Also, it doesn’t always mean targeting a player with very low ownership. While differentials can always help you gain some massive ground very quickly, there are many ways to look at upside-chasing.

I am confident on owning Mané for Liverpool’s upcoming strong fixture run

For example, I’ve been contemplating which Liverpool three to go with for their upcoming run (Gameweek 13 to 21) and I think I’m fairly set on Sadio Mane (£11.8m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) in my team. For the third spot, I’m debating the merits of Salah versus Andrew Robertson (£6.9m).

While Robertson offers you more ‘value’, Salah is offering you way more upside with his points potential. And when it comes to the big boys, there is no room for compromise in my opinion. We are talking about 40 to 50 points swings here over very few weeks and you need to place your bets very carefully when a team like Liverpool shows up with a great fixture run. Are any other attackers offering the same potential as Salah over these few weeks? That is what the decision will come down to. 

Coming back to the rivalry I was talking about and the 50 point chase. He had used up his Manchester City quota before the Double Gameweeks and he did not have Sergio Aguero (£12.2m).

Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) was fit during the time and the title race with Liverpool was a nail biter. Aguero was close to 25% ownership and, while some were thinking about captaining him, very few were thinking of using the Triple Captain chip on him.

Aguero and I have a strong FPL relationship

The thing about Aguero is that we have a very strong relationship (just like Olivier Giroud). Having Triple Captained him successfully in the past; I didn’t trust anyone else more.

A hat-trick against Arsenal later, that 50 point gap got closed in one Gameweek. Stunner executed perfectly (I ended up beating him in the last Gameweek of the season). Bragging rights withheld.  

Aguero and I have been steady for the best part of six years. In the past two of those though, things have been heating up.

Last season and this combined, I have captained him 13 times and he’s returned a staggering 259 points at an average of 20 points per captaincy.

He’s pretty much responsible for me being inside the top 40k already this season. But there’s a little Brazillian that’s proving to be a bit of a thorn in our relationship. And he’s one I can’t ignore.

While I definitely don’t intend on losing Aguero for the next two weeks, I am thinking twice about giving him the armband in a week that would normally be a no brainer.

I am looking to get de Bruyne back in my team this week funded by a Son downgrade

He’s scored six goals in three home games against Aston Villa. Aguero has started every Premier League game at home that he’s been fit for since January 15th this year. Ideally, he should start.

He looked sharp against Atalanta but Raheem Sterling’s (£12.2m) display on Tuesday night and his statistics while playing alongside Mendy are incredibly encouraging.

With three goals and two assists against Atalanta, his haul last night would have equated to 26 FPL points.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.1m) had a good game himself. He’s destroyed Sterling statistically at home this season but I think things will average out as Mendy playing allows Sterling to play more central (I strongly believe that Sané was responsible for a lot of Sterling hauls last season).

All three key Manchester City assets have some form on their side. Watching them on Tuesday, you realise the chance of one of them hauling comes down which opposition defender decides to mark which attacker leaving the other one open for their trademark ‘tap-in’.

As much as I want to captain Aguero, it just seems almost reckless to hand the armband to him over Sterling or De Bruyne.

At present, I’m on Sterling because Pep Guardiola did mention his physicality and ability to play two games in a short space of time because of his ability to ‘regenerate’.

But this decision is going to come down to my instinct on Friday night. There is a thin line between genius and reckless. At the end of the day, this game is about fun, isn’t it? 

FFScout user Lateriser12 has a very impressive Fantasy CV. He has registered two finishes in the top 200 (one of them equating to number one in India) and four in the top 10,000 in the last six seasons. The secret to his success has been playing non-conventionally and fearlessly, swearing by ‘upside chasing’ and not giving ownership much of a look.

    Anyone else feel like Pep's Sterling comments (how he has incredible recovery, extraordinary talent etc etc) mean he's going to bench him this weekend?!!

    1. Krionos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Don't second guess Pep. Pick the City players you like and start them.

      Talk about overthinking things!

      yeah lol

    4. Jambot

      That is exactly what I thought

    Bottomed

    Need to get rid of Cantwell. To fund it:

    A) AWB -> Rico
    B) Ota -> Rico

    I guess Cantwell -> CHO although more sure how I feel about triple Chelsea attack

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Villa and S'oton are two teams bold enough to keep the press on and try to score City. In 19/20 so far, that's all you really need to rip the City CS. Add Ota's rotation risk + CHO's form, and Ota > Rico does make a lot of sense

      Caveat emptor: this isn't really the season for "a lot of sense"

      1. Gommy
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Otamendi was injured at the weekend, not rotated.

        H featured off the bench last night and coupled with Rodri's injury, I'd say he's odds on to start at the weekend, even with Pep's unpredictability being considered.

        As for over-thinking City's clean sheet potential, I'll leave that for you to decide.

  4. Sadio

    Would you make these moves for -4?

    Son and Mount: OUT
    KDB and Hudson-Odoi: IN

    1. Offs!de

      I would do this

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Ideally I would just make the first move, but am 0.3 short.

          Soy/Tomori to Janmaat instead 🙂

  5. BigBillyBass

    8 months, 17 days ago

    Sorry for the repost, I made a mistake in my last post.

    Absolutely stumped on what to do with this team. I know I'll need to get either Sterling/KDB in for this weekend and possibly get rid of Ota/Mahrez. Any thoughts much appreciated...

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Pereira Ota (Lund Rico)
    Mane Mahrez Mount McGinn (Guendouzi)
    Aguero Vardy Tammy

    1 FT & 0.3 ITB

  6. Tamagotchi Massacre
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Pope
    VvD, Robbo, Pereira, Lundy, Hanley
    Son, Mount, Mane, KdB, Guendouzi
    Tammy, Auba, Connolly

    1FT, zero itb.

    Returns have been a bit poor for a couple of weeks. I'm keeping VvD because I think his goal threat can just wipe out the gap between him and TAA in a blink. But I'm worried about Son, AND he's facing my Liv defence this week, which is never a nice feeling. Should I just sit tight?

    One move I'm thinking of is bringing in tielemens and Silva for Son and Guendouzi. With Lundy and Connolly on the bench I'd be happy to take the Dilva benchings in my stride. Is this folly?

    1. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Auba + Son > Kun + Dilva

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Why? Auba has two home games and is matching Aguero, without the threat of benchings. Bit of a whopper of a risk to introduce two players who both may be benched?

        1. BigBillyBass
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 17 days ago

          You said you'd had poor returns the last couple of weeks. I would take the gamble if I was you!

          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            It's good for for thought. Cheers

            • 5 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            I think with 4 favourible home games in the next six, Auba deserves his spot. Only a matter of time before he hauls I reckn

      Yup. Get CHO , then Mount to Grealish later

      Could well be - those next 6 fixtures are dire

  10. Ole Trafford
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Hi folks. What to do with this lot? 1ft and .6 itb.

    Pope(CHE)
    Otamendi(AVL), Soyuncu(sou), Rico(wat)
    Salah(TOT), Sterling(AVL), Mahrez(AVL) Mount(bur)
    Vardy(sou), Abraham(bur), Haller(SHU)

    Button, Lundstram(whm), Cantwell(MUN), Aurier(liv)

    Do I have to remove Mahrez or Ota? Was thinking of Tierney as a punt for Aurier but still hasn’t played yet in the league.

    1. KDB4PREZ
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I own Tierney myself but have good bench cover, not sure I would advise to get him in just yet as I expected him to start on monday

    2. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I’d play lund over soy

      1. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah in some peoples teams I would but as I have Haller it’s a higher ceiling for me to play Soyuncu

  11. internal error
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    I have Aguero, KDB and otamendi. Should I go big or go home and captain Aguero? Im really struggling atm at approx 800k. I'm not used to being this low. I think Aguero might be benched but its only a guess

    1. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      It’s a tough call. I think if he is benched a cameo is unlikely unless they are chasing which I doubt will be the case.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I'm a similar rank with both KDB and Kun. Think I have to go Kun as a relative differential with his power to explode as I want to start moving up before a template starts slowing down progress up the ranks.

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        The template slowed down weeks ago imo, been hugely disappointing.

        1. Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          I would tend towards there being no definitive template with quite a number of options/strategies all round. This can only be good for the game and thankfully detracts from the herd mentality so frequently seen on here.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            Yeah this is why there’s so many people falling far back this season whereas the “upside chasers” are doing well. Some aren’t used to using differentials and preferring to let the safer picks let them down every week

            1. Scott Talent
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 17 days ago

              Well said .

              Agree

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I have Kun and KDB and planning to play Kun (C), KDB (v) as i am also stuck in the 400-700k OR range and can't get out!

  12. AYEW KI-EDEN MEE
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Sterling definitely been the most dissapointing asset this season. Can't finish his dinner in the League. Turns into prime Ronaldo in the CL. Getting rested this weekend too no doubt. Sick of it

    1. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Even though he could play, i got rid for KDB, just not worth it at the moment, people will obviously disagree, but if it was anyone else....they’d be transferred out long ago. Loyalty and favouritism i guess, and yet we preach that FPL is about points.

  13. KingOllie

    Reckon Coleman will start this weekend? Or has Sibide earnt his spot for a bit?

    of all the stupid concepts propagated here, “upside chasing” has to be right up there

      Why not break the habit of a lifetime and come up with something useful yourself instead ?

    Dumb or good moves?

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Should be alright if Chelsea keep up their heavy scoring away from home.

    2. EMBOLOFAN

    @Lateriser12
    Hey bud would love your advice on an idea I have here as a first time player, Christina and others have been kind enuff to offer some input already and would love your take on it.

    After GW12 I was thinking of going double pool defense set and forget with a rotation of Pope/Lowten & Hendo/Lundy as a back 3? Seems like a nice differential here but maybe to much risk and money in the back line? TIA if you c this and answer.

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Im going to do something similar on my Wildcard, doubling up on defence is a strategy i often use. I say go for it. Only downside is spending extra 0.5 on a second keeper

    2. Lateriser 12
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      It isn't a risk at all in my opinion. Go for it. At one point this season i've had no defender more than 5M.

      According to the prevailing opinions I'd say Otamendi has to go, Sterling is upside chasing and the Pukki party is over.....

      Your bench could do with an upgrade too - Cantwell is so yesterday's news....

      Having said all that - your team is only one or two different from mine.....

    Got 2 FT, how does the below sound?

    Pukki -> Vardy
    VVD -> Rico

    Pope, Button
    TAA, Tomori, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Rico
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount, Cantwell
    Vardy, Wilson, Greenwood

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years

      Are you going to want double pool defence after city?

  20. Rhodes your boat
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Who would you rather for next few?

    A) dilva (have sterling kdb)
    B) wilson (better coverage)
    C) vardy (would replace jimi)

    A or B means I bench tomori this week also

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I want Vardy for a long time.

  21. Tamagotchi Massacre

    8 months, 17 days ago

    So it seems I've fallen into the Son trap. We all know he doesn't get going until a third of the way through the season (and spurs are out of sorts)

    Thinking a straight swap Son (liv/eve) for Dilva (AVL/SOT) and just hold the cash and bring Son back for GW12 sweet home fixtures

    Sensible use of FTs if no fire to fight?

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I got rid of son for CHO but looking at dilva also with my other FT. No doubt son will come good I just think spurs are not the ideal options currently

    Ah man pukki’s next 3 look great from an attacking perspective he is so annoying

    1. I hate Moreno

      United I'm not so sure. But if you hold this week then you almost have to for the 2 after. I'm getting rid and chucking a bet on a brace

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Lol nice

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Yep - tricky spot.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Sorry for lolling at your ings pick he’s turned into the best of the bunch

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Yeah - just after I sold him 😆

  23. jimski

    Plenty of people must have a similar conundrum this week. Need to choose 3 of these to play:

    A) Rico (wat)
    B) Lundstram (whu)
    C) Dunk (EVE)
    D) Soy (sou)
    E) McGinn (mci)

    Yes, seriously considering benching McGinn instead of one of the above.

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I’d play ABE

  24. Always Captain Kun
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Last time I predicted Otamendi to score, he got 15 points.

    I haven't predited him to score this week, yet.

    1. Scott Talent

      8 months, 17 days ago

      The rest of us have so much to learn.

  25. Bubbles1985
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Heaton
    TAA Digne Lundstram
    Sterling(c) Salah(vc) Mount Cantwell
    Haller Auba Pukki

    Button Saka Pieters Kelly

    I am holding 0.1itb and 2ft.

    How do these look :

    A) Digne/Mount/Pukki > Rico/CHO/Vardy (-4)

    B) Salah/Pukki > KDB/Vardy

    Short term punt as saving WC until next month... Losing Liverpool attack worries me!

    1. jimski
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      B

    2. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      If you still have your WC, B looks good

      1. Bubbles1985
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Agreed.
        Lack of liverpool gamble until GW13!

  26. FOO FIGHTER
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Pope
    Dunk TAA Lundstram
    Salah Mount Dilva Mane
    Vardy Jimenez Tammy

    Button McGinn Rico Aurier

    Happy with my front 3 but if need be I will switch to 352 Ayew bench

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Hit post before I was done 😮

      So Ayew for bench keeping Tammy and Vardy and then play around with my midfield and defence.

      Hoping triple Pool goes wild this weekend!

  27. KingOllie

    Picking my 3 Liverpool assets on my wildcard is gonna be so stressful

  28. ONGO GABLOGIAN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Afternoon all. Criticise my team please...

    Pope
    TAA Chilwell Otamendi
    Mane Sterling Son Maddison Mount
    Abraham Haller

    £0.1 ITB, 1FT

    Current plan is to pray Otamendi plays, do Son > KDB next week and Haller > Jimenez the week after. If Otamendi doesn't play this week, he's gone.

    Hi fellas!

    Ready to ship anyone except Lundstrom. What would you recommend?

    2ft, 1.2itb

    Heaton Button
    TAA Robbo Otamendi Lundstrom Tomori
    Salah Sterling KdB Cantwell Dendoncker
    Pukki Abraham Greenwood

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Cantwell to CHO and roll the other FT

      1. Miniboss
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 17 days ago

        CHO over Mount? I could get Mount as well if I downgrade Otamendi/Robbo along the Cantwell transfer.

    I wonder how many places I will go up if I don't do a transfer this week?

    1. Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      There aren't actually that many you can go up. ☺
