Captaincy fails for over two-thirds of top 10k Fantasy managers

Manchester City’s unexpectedly narrow 2-1 win over Southampton came at a cost for a large chunk of the top 10,000 managers in Fantasy Premier League.

Between them, Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m) were handed the armband by almost 70% of the FPL bosses who were inside the top 10k at the point of the Gameweek 11 deadline.

The premium midfield pair duly blanked against the Saints, with Sterling picking up a booking to compound his owners’ misery.

Just under 6.5% of this elite group had more joy with a Sergio Aguero (£12.1m) captaincy, at least, while around one in four top 10k managers overlooked the City trio altogether.

The highest-owned player inside the top 10,000 is Jamie Vardy (£9.3m).

The Leicester City striker, who faces Crystal Palace on Sunday, featured in only 33.25% of top 10k squads ahead of the Gameweek 10 fixtures but his 20-point haul against Southampton has understandably increased his popularity.

Of course, a fair number of the new entrants inside the top 10,000 would have been helped there by owning Vardy in the first place.

The Foxes’ forward was by some distance the most-bought FPL asset of Gameweek 11, being transferred in by just over 675,000 managers.

De Bruyne remains in one in three top 10k squads, with Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) and John Lundstram (£4.7m) – both of whom delivered double-digit hauls on Saturday – also widely owned assets.

Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.4m) popularity continues to dwindle, with just over one in four top 10,000 managers hanging onto the Egyptian.

Indeed, Salah doesn’t feature in the top 10k Wildcard template, with Sadio Mane (£11.9m) proving a much more popular buy.

A two-man strike force of Vardy and Abraham is being widely favoured, with budget asset Aaron Connolly (£4.6m) the third-most-popular FPL forward among the elite managers who used their Wildcard this week.

There is predictably a lot of crossover between the template Wildcards inside the top 10k and outside of it, with Salah and Andrew Robertson (£6.9m) proving more popular in the chasing pack.

We have now hit the 50% mark for Wildcard usage in the top 10k.

One in four of the top 10,000 FPL managers have already used their Triple Captain chips, with the Free Hit and Bench Boost chips not as heavily relied on.

Chip usage inside the top 10k

Just under 33% of the top 10,000 have yet to use a single chip but over 25% have used at least two already.

2.2% of the top 10k have maxed out on their allotted chips already, leaving only their second Wildcard to be used.

    Would you do Cantwell to Tielamans? Have already done Kun to Vardy and have 1FT and 2.8 ITB.

    1. Peter Ouch

      Double up on leics attack is too much...Tossard/mcginn/grealish

      1. Krionos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        People gotta stop saying this...

    5. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Yes if Tielemans looks good today and you want to start him next week

    6. Bam Bam Bigelow
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Yes, I'm looking at the same moves for a hit

  2. Og
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Lundstram mendy rico montoya and...... 5.7 Itb who should I get? Really struggling.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Downgrade mendy to Steven's and get a pool defender.
      Just look at the schedule

    2. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Find money for TAA or Robbo. So downgrade someone this week and upgrade next week

    3. Og
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I've gone o'connell for a defensive double up from gw15. Mendy to Robertson next week. Only just put mendy in this week for a blank but I guess learn from your mistakes and rectify as quickly as possible.

    1FT 2.3ITB

    Cleverly/Cantwell -> Tielemans? Y or N? Or is there a better move?

    Pope*
    TAA Lundstram Tomori Söyüncü
    Mane Sterling Mount
    Tammy Wilson* Vardy

    Button Cantwell* Diop* Cleverly*

    1. Jullepuu

    Hi DZ

    What should with my FT this week

    Leno Button

    Lundstram Montoya Fredericks Lowton Soyuncu

    Sterling Mount KDB James McGinn

    Abraham Vardy Aubameyang

    0.9 ITB

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Lots can be done depends where you want to focus and your formation.

      I wouldn't be negative to Leno--> Henderson or Sterling to Mane

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Roll, IB coming up.

    3. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I’d save it.
      Although long term I’d want Leno out

    4. fgdu
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      james out to a chelsea or leicester mid

  5. JJeyy
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    If you are out of last man standing do you get removed from league? or any other way to tell

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      If you see yourself in the league, you are in

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Yup you get removed... livefpl has some stats

  6. Peter Ouch
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Jokes aside with never bench Lundstram.
    Are you playing him ahead of tomori or soynucu?
    Both nice home games vs a tough away

    1. Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I'll bench next week, away to Spurs

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I'm playing him every week.

    3. nicoTours
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I might be forced to play him as my 2 other budget defenders are either crap or have a tough match. But I learnt that not playing him or not putting him as 1st sub cost me dear. So I'm happy to play him. With 1 clean sheet so far, the Spurs are not that tight. So there's a good chance of a goal for SHU and Lundstram is a good shout (involved on a third of the Blade's goals).

  7. HamezMace
    • 6 Years

    Morning all,
    Advice on how to spend my 1.4m itv;

    Gazzaniga - McGovern
    TAA - Söyüncü - Lundstram - Rico - Lowton
    Mane - KdB - Maddison - Mount - Dendonker
    Abraham - Lacazette - Kane

    1. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      2FTs as well as the 1.4m

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Are you fine with the forward line?

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Abraham I’m very happy with.
        Kane, I’m happy to have a premium striker who I know is nailed every week.
        Lacazette is the most at risk of the three, a move to Vardy is obvious, but for some reason I’m holding off. Perhaps it’s Lacazettes fixtures

  8. jayzico
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Interesting that none of the 3 leaders have a pool defender and very few in the top ten.

    I just brought in Robbo fwim. Dont own TAA

    1. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I don’t own a Liverpool defender either (haven’t for weeks). I WC in GW3 and went uber cheap in defence and put all my funds into my front 7. It has worked well so far.

      1. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Well done for identifying it early and adapting.
        Stubbornness can kill in FPL

        1. HollywoodXI
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          I got absolutely slaughtered on here for it at the time. Even by mods. But I had a gut feeling their would be less clean sheets this season based on a number of things I’d seen during the first two GWs.

          1. HamezMace
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            Good stuff, gotta back your gut feeling

          2. Krionos
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            How do you feel about it now? And liverpools upcoming fixtures? I reckon its time for a switch soon.

            1. HollywoodXI
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              10 months, 24 days ago

              Agreed. Staying flexible is key. I’ll likely bring TAA in during the next few GW’s.

    2. jayzico
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      This is first time I've owned a pool defender. Lundstram at half the price has played every game for me (although my rank sadly doesnt reflect this)

      1. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I have played Lundstram, Rico and Dunk for several weeks and it has worked just fine. That allowed me to have the following front eight:

        Salah Sterling KDB Mount (Cantwell)
        Vardy Firmino Abraham

  9. Babit1967
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    First -4 of the season

    Ota, Mahrez and Wilson to Robbo, Martial and Jimmy done and good riddance

  10. mojoindojo
    • 6 Years

    2 FT. 0.4 ITB.
    Thinking of upgrading Pope. Any other move?

    Pope
    TAA Pereira Lundy
    Mane KDB Mount McGinn
    Vardy Auba Abraham

    Button Chambers McTominay Kelly

    1. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      thought chambers would be a god pick.. but arsenal

      1. mojoindojo
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Aye. Learned my lesson last week and played lundy over him

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Yeah, I'd ship Pope.

    3. nicoTours
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Uograding in quality, not in price I guess? With Ryan, Henderson and Ramsdale you have better assets at the same price or lower.

  11. The Overthinker
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Why do we bother about fpl when all it gives is disappointment?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Chin up.

      Be adventurous and get rid of all City. Use the cash to beef up your team.

      You have nothing to lose now with your rank.

      I only have Dilva and he is being shipped out. My rank jumped from over 1 mil to 548k with a failed cap from Salah and whopping 1 point from Dilva.

      Many say you are crazy to go no City, I disagree.

      You can beef up your team getting rid of your City assets.

      With your current rank you have nothing to lose.

    2. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Basically saying “waaaa why do we bother with FPL when we don’t do so well because of bad decisions waaaa”

      Grow up a bit, it’s a game, not life. There are bad weeks on fpl and good weeks. Ultimately, should have no affect on your life, if it does then stop playing

    3. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Have a cup of tea and a w*nk. You'll feel better.

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years

        Abd I'm all out of tea

        1. HamezMace
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Then go for the double up

  12. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Who is the best GK to own right now, excluding Pope.

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Boring but it's still between Pope, Ryan and Hendo.

    2. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I’m happy with Gazzaniga until Christmas

    3. Wally banter
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Hendo

    4. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Hendo

    5. WWF
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Schmeichel

  13. Garlana
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Good chance Aguero is benched Vs pool? Pep seems to look at records and Aguero's isn't good at anfield. Jesus to start?

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Selling long before then myself but I'd be concerned

    2. Krionos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      No idea, but Liverpool and City have both conceded in all of their games recently and its a MUST win for city. So I think theres goals in this one...

    3. Jack Burton
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I wouldnt have thought so I'm keeping

  16. Wally banter

    Guilbert, TAA, Lund, Rico, non playing 4.0

    Can this defense survive next 4-5 gws?

    Can bring salah in if so.

    Really confused between salah or robbo

  17. Planet_Marss
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 24 days ago

    double liverpool defence or attack?

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Neither. One of each. Pool aren't playing well.

      1. Wally banter
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Where to spend the cash is a concern
        Sterling not doing anything
        Kun is in and out of team
        Kane , Auba is not justifying the value

      2. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Agreed

      3. Krionos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Pool arent playing well???

    2. Wally banter
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Million dollar qn right now

    3. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Neither. One of Mane/Salah and One of TAA/Robbo is enough

      1. nicoTours
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        +1

    4. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Robbo taa mane is the way to go.

      3 liverpool midfielders and for a weird reason 2 of them are getting points for cs

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        For me too

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I am on Mane Salah and TAA.

      Can't see myself changing from it.

      1. Wally banter
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        whats rest of your team

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Pope Button
          TAA Lund Dunk Rico Aurier
          Salah Mane Perez Mount Dilva*
          Vardy Jimmy Tammy

          Getting rid of Dilva, might do it this week otherwise will bench him vs Liverpool. Screw Pep and his 'tactical change' taking Dilva off. Screw any City asset 🙂

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 24 days ago

        This

      3. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Salah ankle doesnt fill me with confidence. Not gonna get rid of an underperforming 12m mid for another one

    6. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Key question!

      If either is right it’s prob the TAA/ Robbo double up

  18. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    People doubling up on Pool who have 2CS from 10 games. Sheffield have just as good fixtures and a way better defence.. I'm doubling or tripling up on Lund, O'Connell and maybe Stevens.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Robbo and taa are midfielders , that's why.
      But yes double up on Sheffield is the way to go now, I'll do it as well after the ib

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Cant say it doesnt make sense! But robbo and taa both proved again yesterday that they were the two defenders most likely to get the most attacking returns over the season.

      It all depends how you use your money in mid and fwds, but as far as Im concerned, Im very likely to get rid of Sterling who is not worth his price tag right now. Which means that I will have enough money to afford Robbo. So why go the cheaper route in defense?

        If you get rid of raz, who do you get in assuming you have kdb Mane/salah

          Cancelo Sterling CHO out for Robbo Pulisic and...? Undecided on the last one. Maybe Son? If Spurs play well today. Or a Leicester mid... which would still leave me a lot itb. But as you said earlier, not easy to decide how to spend the money as Kun Auba Kane Sterling Salah are underperforming/not reliable for captaincy

            And the last two of those 4 are vs Villa and Sheff. Wont be better than Bournemouth

    Would u do salah vvd to mane robbo for -4? Bit of a sideways move but feel they are good moves and will be priced out if hold

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Way too sideways imo for a hit. Monitor Salah’s injury situation as it may become worthwhile

    2. Pat Bonner

    Morning!
    Not actually sure what to do here other than I feel Kun and Boly should go...

    1FT 0.4itb
    Pope, McGovern
    TAA, Lunds, Willems, Rico, Boly*
    Mané, KDB, Mount, Barnes, Dendo
    Kun*, Vardy, Abraham

    Potential options:
    Kun, Dendo, Boly >
    A) Jimi, Martial/ Dilva/ Pulisic, Robbo
    B) Firmino, Martial/ Dilva/ Pulisic, Soy/ Tomori
    C) Mousset, Sterling, Soy/ Tomori

    I could do any of the above with only 2 moves for a -4, but they have to involve Kun out to fund or just Kun out and save other moves...?!

    Any advice appreciated!

    1. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I don’t think you need to panic here, your defence can easily cover Boly for a week.
      And Kun will probably play against Liverpool, who are conceding most weeks.
      Rather have 2FTs going to the IB

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Yeh saving is def an option. I just don’t like the thought of over £12m of value with a question mark over his head every week!

        In practice I wouldn’t make any of my proposed moves all at once as I’m trying now to avoid any non-essential hits

        1. HamezMace
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          I do agree, I took him out, mostly in rage, after his benching last week.
          But I’m quite confident he’ll play against Liverpool.

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Hmm could do just Kun to Jimi for the AVL match and reassess next week

      What about sterling? Salah might drop again before deadline tho

    2. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Then just get Mane, might be a better option anyway

    Mane-Sterling-KDB-Mount-Cantwell
    Abraham-CWilson-Connolly

    0FT, 1.6ITB

    Transferred out Otamendi last night finally, almost did CWilson -> Vardy for -4 as well, but I wanted to see Leicester play today first.

    A. Do I transfer in Vardy for CWilson for a -4 this week and ride the Cantwell drop? I'll need to play 4 ATB or one of Connolly or Midfield bench fodder each week. I'd consider captaining Vardy against Arsenal next weekend.

    B. Transfer CWilson -> Jimenez next week, giving me some extra funds to upgrade Cantwell to Tielemans or another midfielder in that price range. Potentially more balanced.

    What should I do? Any help is appreciated!

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Get Vardy

    Which of these would you do?

    Otamendi & Cantwell out for either:

    A) Otamendi & Cantwell > Robertson & Tillemans

    B) Tomori & Cantell > Rico & Pulisic

    C,) Otamendi & Cantwell > Rico & Martial

    380k in gw6 to around 1.5m currently....painful season!

    Might move early on salah and otamendi to mane robbo (-4) as got exact cash now? Worth a hit long term to get pool defender?

      Sterling and mane for sure.

    2. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I’m sticking with Salah and Sterling. Pre season they were touted as “the best” players in the league. Mane has been excellent for over a year and is as good (if not better). At the end of the season they will likely be the three top scoring players in the game so I think you just stick with two or, if funds allow, get all three.

    Thoughts here? Would like to get Jimenez over Connolly but would have to involve losing Sterling to a 9.9 or below mid.

      I would save I think. Don’t get why I’m seeing lots of sterling out transfers, are Man City’s fixtures even that bad. Chelsea at home who struggle to keep clean sheets. Newcastle and Burnley aren’t solid either

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Sterling hasn't justified his price with the good fixtures just gone, so while I agree the upcoming ones aren't particularly taxing from an attacking view, its his form that is the issue

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Not seen the game yesterday but he could’ve scored more against palace and villa, granted his finishing was poor vs palace. Then he scored the hatrick in champs league. With mendy back I think he looks really dangerous

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I know I should be patient with Raheem but can't see when I would captain him in the next few GWs. Not pressed on prices so will hold out on any moves til late this week.
