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.

      No hits needed imo

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

    Totally frustrated. My team is not performing and there are 4 or 5 players that need to go. Should I wild card now or wait until international break?

    This is how I would line-up without WC:

    Pope
    TAA, Digne, Zouma
    Sterling, Maddison, Mount, CHO
    Pukki, Aubameyang, Vardy

    Cantwell, Otamendi, Lundstram,

    What should I do?!

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

      I would be wary of wildcarding now. Because the Liverpool vs City game will probably influence your decisions a lot.

      But yeah you got a few issues there with that team...

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

        I agree with father time.

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      No way would I WC that

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

      I'd wildcard that, Otamendi, Cantwell, CHO, Pukki, Sterling, Digne, Zouma, Pope

      8 problems there, and no pool for their upcoming good fixtures other than TAA

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

        Yes, not sure Sterling is an issue but no Liverpool attack isn't great

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

          Maybe harsh to include him with the rest but you get what I mean, he's certainly not justifying his price

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

        Was thinking of bringing in Liverpool after ManC game.

        Your list of problems is same as mine except for Pope. What’s wrong with him (given going for cheaper keeper, rotating with Heaton)?

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

      Good views. I’m probably emotionally reacting, partly because I only got a total of 20 points,.,,with Lundstram on my bench!

      One more week then WC

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        This

    5. James Shaw
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I'd personally wildcard!
      You should triple Liverpool for upcoming fixtures.
      I would sell Digne, Zouma and OTA from you defense.
      Pukki is a must go.
      CHO aswell if he doesn't play next week.

    6. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      i think if you look at your team this week most of your players that you prob want out got decent fixture. Wait for Chelsea game and presser later in the week for CHO, and if you thinking of WC i would maybe try a punt on someone, CHo or Ota out, punt on Iwobi, JWP, Grealish etc?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        This is the best advice you have received. Team looks great for this week and you can wildcard after the Liverpool - Man City game from a position of strength.

  3. AD2110
    • 3 Years

    What to do with this team? Got 2 FT and 1.6ITB.

    Ryan, (Button)
    TAA, Lund, Ota, (Soy, Rico)
    Sterling, KDB, Mad, Mount, (Cantwell)
    Auba, Jimi, Abraham

    Need to get Ota out. Who’s the best replacement? Any other transfers to make?

    Cheers

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I would schedule to get Mane and Vardy

    Finding the next form player to ride up the rankings is proving somewhat difficult!

    Anyone got their sights on any low ownship/non template players?

    Currently only have D Henderson as a replacement for Pope on the watchlist and laca

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

      Pulisic

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Can see many switching mount to pulisic when he nails down the spot

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

      Trossard. Shame about the fixtures though. J Ayew has a decent run from the start of next month.

    What moves would you make here GW12 with 1FT & 0.9m?

    Pope
    TAA - Tomori - Otamendi
    Mane - Sterling - KDB - Mount - Cantwell
    Vardy - Abraham

    (4.0 Rico Lundy Connolly)

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Save

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Cantwell might not start and Otamendi definitely won't.

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

    Liverpool have 2 cs, only Norwich has less.

    Robbo and taa are 2nd and 3rd scoring defenders.

    Liverpool had really tough schedule.

    2-3 clean sheets in the next 5-6 games will make massive difference.

    If you look the cs they've lost, it was literally only one chance per game.

    Newcastle Leicester arsenal Southampton.

    Double up on pools defence is the way to go, then you can have 3 midfielders (robbo taa and mane/Salah)

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

      Agree with most of what you said except in all those matches they gave up further chances rather than the one chance. They will annoyingly keep conceding one since they have changed the way they play this season compared to last. But granted the second a cs comes it will be monster hauls

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

        Maybe not one chance but definitely not massive amount.

        I am surprised how taa isn't getting double digits every week, this guy is unbelievable

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

          Yeah he's close every week to a Lundstram haul. But the new high line is just suicidal, it's maybe not a crazy amount of shots or chances they give up but one lapse usually results in a one on one. It's like how vardy outperforms his xg, because the kind of chance he gets is usually in behind one on one- these are the chances Liverpool give up a couple of times per game

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

    How did Mousset get an assist for that second Lundstram goal!

    1. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Can see on last MOTD replay he does get a touch on cross.

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

        Yeah a touch, but come on, is that an assist?
        I know FPL rules are different to real life, but I thought that was very generous

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

      Same reason D Silva got a goal last week

  9. Jurgen Flopp
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Can't decide between Liverpool defensive double up or Mane and Salah.

    1. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Same here. Think I’m going to go with double liv given fixtures and salah being too risky

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

      Same, if I double up on attack they'll go on a run of cs 1-0, if I double on defence mane Salah will kill it and they'll concede every game. Such is fpl

  10. Easy Cheesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Hi - are people holding out for a specific GW for WC? I’ve still got mine but a lot of transfers I could make from the below:

    Ryan*, Button
    Ota*, digne*, robbo, lund, rico
    Kdb, sterling*, james*, cantwell*, dend
    Vardy, abraham, jimi

    £3.6m itb. one FT. OR =103k

    WC or crack on?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Crack on

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

      You have the ideal front 3 IMO, KDB, a Liverpool defender and a decent budget keeper. So you would be playing a WC to tidy up around the bones of a strong skeleton. Still could have it's merits.

    3. BremerHB
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Would look at replacing Ota this week. That or James.

  11. davies
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Anyone else keeping Aguero?

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

      Gooorne

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

      No but want to do 2 transfers and use his free cash. Might keep one more week. If anyone is going to score against Liverpool surely it’ll be Kun...

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

    Who is your current captain next GW? Vardy (ARS) here

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

      Pulisic

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

        Like it

    2. Yome
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Vardy or Abraham

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

        Abraham home form not great

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

      Probably Tammy..

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

      Tammy at the minute. Not overwhelming though

    5. Stef rocks
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      There is plenty of time until the GW12 deadline, but if no injuries or something extraordinary during the CL I would say Vardy. Tammy is also very exciting as Jorginho is banned for next GW and he could be on penalties as well which will further boost him as an option!

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

        Good spot on the pens front, but I imagine Willian would take them if on the pitch.

    6. Jurgen Flopp
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Got to be Vardy. Palace not an easy game for Chelsea.

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

      Bus captain is Jimenez.

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

      Pukki

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

      Lundstram

    10. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Tammy currently. WOuld have captained Vardy if I owned

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

    Finally and far too late I know got in Lundstram ( for Cancelo- as had 2 frees for this week decided on expensive 1 week punt for Otamendi which was expensive mistake ) but is this line-up good enough going forward or would you play WC to shake things up ?

    Pope
    TAA Soyünücü Lundstram Rico
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Vardy Abraham

    McGovern Cantwell Diop Greenwood

  14. Corgzzzz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Sorry if this has been asked...but why was Salah sub off ?? Was he injured ??

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

      He is carrying an ankle injury from Leicester's game, not serious enough to let him out but serious enough to affect his game

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

      It’s believed he’s carrying an ankle injury, which is being carefully managed

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

        Indeed. I expect him to be rested midweek

  15. Stef rocks
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Ok not complaining about Lundy haul this GW but it really ruined my plans of benching him next 2-3 GWs and transferring Boly to a defender with good 3-4 fixtures (other WOL or MAnU).

    Current defense - TAA Pereyra 3.9 Lundy “Boly”

    Would you just play Lundy and save the FT or downgrade Boly to upgrade mid or get a defender with decent next 3-4 fixtures

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

      Haha agreed. Now gotta play Sir John

  16. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Is janmaat nailed ?

    1. Stef rocks
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Looks like

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      apparently but it´s the kind of nailed that is first choice in a very demanding position thus making him vulnerable to rotation during christmas for example. seems to get subbed 70min in some games, not sure why but could be a tactical thing or fitness related thing. if fifth defender and all four other is nailed i would gamble on him, consider it myself going with something like TAA, Pereira, Lund, Lascelles, Janmaat (Pereira might be LIV defender through christmas as leic goes on a bit of a tough run then).

  17. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Thoughts on Son for the next 5 games?

      Son looks good but Spurs are awful. Watch him today and decide - the eye test is the most important for me. Thus said I have him 🙂

      I’ve got him and am just waiting patiently for him to explode.
      In fact, I’ve captained him this week.
      I know Spurs aren’t very popular picks atm, but they’ve got the fixtures to turn it round...

    Just realised the main problem in getting rid of Salah or sterling and just having mane, no idea where all that extra money should go. There's really nothing else to spend it on, there's value in midfield, value in strike, big hitting defenders aren't keeping cs.

    1. Peter Ouch

      That's very true, same issue here.
      And if he starts banging on then you need surgery to bring him back

        Exactly, so best solution is to just ride with them but definitely not see them as the great Captain choices they once were and think out of the box a little

          Spot on.

          Mane is a great set and forget C option, I think I'll stick with him

      Completely agree with this.

      while i understand our sentiment i think you can spread them so you can have a slightly different team structure, firstly, shuffling money back at defense might be more worthwhile, and also keeping some very good "almost premiums" like Son, Vardy, KDB and have like Mané as the one premium above 10m. All four has fixture and captainable, and you can have either JImi and Tammy or a budget striker with Grealish as fifth mid.

    pool front three aren't exactly in the best form (except mane). I feel after the recent scenes a lot of folks will sell Salah and may double up on robo and Trent. that will cause them to be priced out/blocked from getting a double up in attack.. if the front three then hit form it maybe a struggle to bring em back. other things to consider is att double up provide better capt options and give you cover against an explosion from either mane or salah (the att player you don't own).. also feels like it offers more flexibility with premium players if they also hit form which feels inevitable (granted they are underperforming atm)

    in terms of rank, it also offers a more attacking approach to help climb ranks, especially with teams of higher value at this stage

    Please comment your opinion.. very interested on the matter

    Need a one-week punt pre-WC.

    Likely to be D Silva replacements up to 8.8M, and I already own Mount.

    Martial?
    Pulisic?
    Some kind of Burnley player since West Ham look atrocious?

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

      Do Burnley look any better?
      Pulasic could be good.

      1. Shatner's Bassoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Haha fair point. Pulisic front runner I think, depending on midweek minutes.

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

      west ham can look disgusting one week and look like city the next.. would not take that sorta risk myself with burnley since they themselves are pretty lacking in form atm. Pulisic is a sick short term punt.. good chelsea record v cpalace too

    Reflecting on yesterday's thoughts during City game:

    Going forward I'm thinking a Sterling + KdB double is too expensive for their performance. Thinking of replacing one of them with Dilva after LIV. Question is who?
    KdB has been playing further from the box lately, thus not getting into goalscoring positions as much. But he's still very potent assists-wise
    Sterling seems to be hugging the touchline a lot without Mendy, Guardiola's screaming instructions were required yesterday for Angelino to play wider and Sterling to get in the box. Also when Aguero plays, he occupies the best positions in the box, which limits Sterling's chances, Jesus is a somewhat better partner for him. Problem is Mendy's not nailed even with Zinchenko out, and Jesus will play less than Aguero, so there's a risk of Sterling rarely getting more than one goal/assist.
    What do you guys think?

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Didn't Dilva come off injured?

    2. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years

      I still think I will keep sterling + KDB for the season though

    Maybe people should reconsider dropping Aguero before Liverpool?
    out of the city assets he has the best record v lpool. He'll definitely play in the most important game for city by far this season. He'll be rested midweek. he loves scoring important big game goals.

    I can hear it "Agueroooooooooo!"

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Has played for City 8 times at Anfield and never scored there.

      1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        this

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

        I said against Liverpool not anfield and I was talking mainly under pep. his goals did come at home though (something to note for sure). also city don't typically do well at anfield so its not just him, its the team. this however is a very important game for city (maybe most important meeting between the two sides) and they'll have to depend heavily on attack since their defence is pretty suspect rn.
        Last year the game at Etihad was pretty crucial and city won 2-1

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

          Not sure you can so easily dismiss his record at Anfield. Also think a draw isn't the worst result for both sides so could be a repeat of last year's cagey 0-0. Pep may even favour Jesus' workrate in this sort of game.

          But if you think he will do well then hold.

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

            if pep plays his bench striker ahead of inform first choice proven current best striker in the game and doesn't win.. press would go for his head

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Trossard but fixtures aren’t great

      Grealish has been moved centrally and whilst has a slight injury could prove fruitful - fixtures are mixed

      Barnes - has the fixtures but form massively boosted by the Southampton capitulation

    3. The Train Driver

        Man U away and Arsenal away really aren't that bad.

        1. davies

          I’d feel more confident if they were home matches - same with Liverpool
