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 point having Sterling if you not going to cap him.

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 5 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        I'm looking at McGinn and Trossard also. But JWP is an intriguing option. On set-pieces, and looks as if he's their only star man.

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years

          He has been absolutely shite lately

          1. The Royal Robin
            • 5 Years
            12 months, 1 day ago

            Who? If you're referring to JWP, I don't think you can single any player out. They're all quite bad, and JWP is like I said, probably their only decent-ish player.

            1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
              • 5 Years
              12 months, 1 day ago

                • 5 Years
                12 months, 1 day ago

                I don't know how you can say he's been shite lately when he scored 9 points away to Man City today, including 2 BPS but ok.

                1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
                  • 5 Years
                  12 months, 1 day ago

                  That makes him their star player. Got it.

                  12 months, 1 day ago

                  I think the point might lie in that JWP has scored 5 points less than Man Utds non-star player McTominay.
                  McTominay doesn't excite me for 5.1 so I'm not going to get excited by JWP at 5.8 with 2 returns in 11 games.

      Maybe Wilson to Jimenez? Your bench is good enough so you can delay the Boly move till next week.

    I need to get rid of Otamendi, Salah, Pukki and get Mane, Vardy and a defender that's not Otamendi.

    Does this warrant a WC? I don't think the moves are that urgent but price changes can cause a big swing and I don't see any big fixture swings that would require a drastic change in my team until January so thinking I might as well use it now.

    Would appreciate any input/suggestions. Thanks!

            Thanks for the insight. I'm not that worried about Connolly as I wouldn't play him anyway in the foreseeable future, he'd just be backup for any unexpected rotation/etc.

            However I do feel like Salah needs to go. Klopp keeps saying he is ok but then subs him out with almost half an hour to go. For that price range, that's not a risk that I want to take and with the price movements in opposite directions I'd rather do the Salah to Mane move sooner than later.

            Getting rid of Sterling is probably a good idea but the price changes with the others is a worry so might have to wait till later for that move unless I WC.

        3. Citizenkane91
          • 6 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          Not at all. Last defender is who, btw? Currently, I think Ota and Salah is the most pressing change. Pukki to Jimenez if you fancy his fixture and form over Pukki, but another option could be to could be prepping for a liv double up come gw 13, for instance with Ota to Robertson, Pukki to Mousset / Ota to Robertson, Salah to Mane, Pukki to Ings.

          1. Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            12 months, 1 day ago

            Last defender is Kelly, I guess I already have subconsciously removed him from my team due his fixtures. Like Connolly, he is a bench fodder though so not a priority to replace.

            Liverpool double up is something I'll definitely do either for GW13 or GW14. Apart from some price losses, I agree that I don't need to WC and if I don't end up doing it, I'll probably do Pukki to Jimenez with my FT as you said. What makes me consider to WC team is because I doubt I'll really need to WC at any point before end of December. I've never kept a WC this late and with the amount of season keepers due to their value (Mount, Abraham, Rico, Lundstram) and the premiums, I'm not sure if I'll ever need more than a few FTs anyway.

            Either way I guess I'll wait till tomorrow and work on some long term planning before I decide.

      Im wildcarding seems right to do now sometimes better to sort a multitude of problems out and refresh the team

  9. Foozeball
    • 3 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    I was originally going to bench them next GW, but it looks like Trossard and Lundstram have to be in my starting XI instead on current form despite their challenging away fixtures against Man United and Spurs respectively

    1. Citizenkane91
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      I'm most likely still going to bench both, but I'm going to save a ft by holding Trossard for the next patch of green now. Happily going to play him in home games against sides who come there for 3 points, perfect for his style.

    2. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      I always play lundstram

      1. Citizenkane91
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Sheffield are overperforming their xgc a lot, meaning they're either better at 1) goalkeeping, 2) outperform other teams in the quality of opponent's players that get into scoring position 3) some other hidden qualitative variable stats don't pick up on, or 4) luck. I expect their future projections to regress negatively.

        1. Citizenkane91
          • 6 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          *says a Lundstram/Henderson owner who's considering adding another for gw 15, by the way.

        2. Foozeball
          • 3 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          Dean Henderson is an excellent shotstopper. Sheffield United's over performance in xGA is similar to West Ham with Fabianski (West Ham are now conceding a lot more without Fabianski)

  10. Citizenkane91
    • 6 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    Good week, 78 points with Sterling captain fail, Cancelo no show and Chelsea clean sheet lost in the last minute. Yet, can't help feeling it could have gone a lot better. Rico surprising on second sub behind Mount with another CS has me slightly peeved, in hindsight I shouldn't have been so quick by the Tomori/Soy/Rico decision, blinded by Martial back and the Norwich game. Only players to let me down were, shockingly enough, fixture-favorite City players and an unlucky Tomori. All others thumbs up, but that was sort of expected beforehand, hence sitting with this feeling: Tammy, Jimenez, Trossard, Mane, Lundstram, Henderson. Vardy and Soyuncu to play.

    1. Jurgen Flopp
      • 6 Years

      Stop being greedy and be grateful

      1. Citizenkane91
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Greedy is the wrong word. Expectations met on everyone but Jimenez (and the City/Che boys), who surprised positively, but still wasn't a huge deviance from the norm score over, say, ten games vs Arsenal. Cancelo benched I sort of expected, so similarly, but inversely this time, not too disappointed. However, the KdB and Sterling captaincy fail, huge gap from expectations. Also, Mount could easily have had a goal in his game, but because Cancelo didn't play and Rico is second sub behind Mount, I get his 1 point off the bench instead.

        If I had a worse team and got this score, I would be overjoyed. Now I'm just meh. According to fplreview, even this gw my luck factor was negative.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          Make better decisions than bringing Cancelo in.

          And Jurgen Flopp was right; be thankful for what went well and move on to next week’s plan.

          Sterling 1 point ahead of Salah. Salah is playing with an ankle which ain't healed.

          Sterling could very well be benched. Salah won't.

    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, Robbo
    B) Firmino, Martial, 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!

            Surely with Arsenal’s defence anyone has a chance but you may be right.

            You don’t think too risky to go with only KDB from MCI?

            1. Citizenkane91
              • 6 Years
              12 months, 1 day ago

              There's inherent risk to any outcome, but now is the best time to deleverage city assets, probably. To be fair, if you feel that's a risk not worth taking, I like Kun to Ayew/Mousset for this gw as well, your bench is strong enough to do Dendocker Sterling for gw 13.

            2. Citizenkane91
              • 6 Years
              12 months, 1 day ago

              Despite their defensive howlers I still don't expect . They are also massively underperforming their xgc, while Leicester is converting at a far higher rate than their current Xg or Rodgers-historic goal conversion rate should suggest. I'd play the other 7 ahead of him and feel good about having him as an option in other gws.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        12 months, 1 day ago

        Surely not keep Kun? Just not nailed enough for the price tag

  14. Ajax Hamsterdam

    kane or auba ?

    thanks

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year

      Do not have any but would go Kane if I had to.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Jimenez

  15. Phil's Stamps

    • 9 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    Best cheap playing 5th mid for 4.8 or less?
    Still Cantwell?

    Would join a bench of Rico & Connolly.

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      hayden

    2. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Probably still.

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Hayden

    4. matiakez
      • 9 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Dendo still does a job and never gives a bench headache.

    5. ...al
      • 11 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Just get a 4.4 and bank the cash

  16. aleksios

    Dont know what to do here so save ft for the break? 1ft 2.5 itb.

    -Pope
    --TAA--Pieters--Tomori
    --Sterl--Dilva--KDB--Mount
    --Wilson--Vardy--Abraham.

      You don’t want any LIV attack? I know it’s MCI but I’d have either Salah or Mané in personally

  17. matiakez
    • 9 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    Feel uneasy doing it given the fixtures but does Auba out for Vardy still make sense?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      not for me

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      I would

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Auba has plum fixtures soon.

      1. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        He’s already had plum fixtures and not done much, not hauling at all.

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          Brace vs Watford. Vardy has hauled twice against 10 men imo, but do check.

          1. The Dance
            • 9 Years
            12 months, 1 day ago

            Southampton limited City, so for Arsenal it will be tough

            1. baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              12 months, 1 day ago

              Haven't watched the match yet, therefore I am unable to comment. Difficult to know "which Southampton" plays vs Arsenal.

      2. matiakez
        • 9 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Exactly that's why its a bit of a dilemma

    4. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Vs Southampton and Norwich Auba is C material. I have both though.

      1. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Not against Southampton, but Norwich yes

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          I guess it was mentioned in one article here before Lei match that Saints are weak on their right flank. Chilwell at least probably did benefit from that.

  18. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    I think Man City has become too unpredictible... Last season their assets were one of the most secure investments and now... I'm not sure if I should rely that much on them anymore (like triple City, captaining most of the season, even Sterling at 12m doesn't look that appealing...)

    1. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      They play sometimes like in the Guardiola's first season there.

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Moreover Man City (even at home) doesnt look like a fixture we should avoid at all costs when deciding who to bench... Liverpool doesn't play well defensively away from home too.

  19. ItOnlyTook9Years

    Pereira, please can you have a dodgy curry tonight and miss the game tomorrow. Lundstram thanks you

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Always play the home defender in close calls!

  20. OutofShorts
    • 4 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    Martial or James for what look like great next 3 even despite play today!

    1. ...al
      • 11 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Martial if you must

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      martial i think, although united chance creation from open play is a big concern

    3. OutofShorts
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      These fixtures though BHA (H) SHU (A) AVL (H) Surely they will step game up at home at least...

      1. Citizenkane91
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        1.5 good games. Brighton at home and second half of the AVL game. 130 minutes. Worth it?

  21. danlynch13
    • 5 Years
    12 months, 1 day ago

    Just used my two ft to get this team what you guys think

    Pope
    Trent-Tomori-Lundstram
    Mane-Mount-Sterling-KDB
    Jiminez-Vardy-Tammy

    Button-Soyuncu-Kelly-Dendoncker

    1. OutofShorts
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Great team you must have a ton of value!

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Outside of Soyuncu that is utter bench fodder pretty much.

        Scary to have no playing bench players or anyone capable of any points.

        That is a strong 11 mind!!+

        1. danlynch13
          • 5 Years

    0.7 itb and 2 FTs any good suggestions

    Pope Mcgovern
    TAA Mendy Lundstram Rico Tomori
    Mane Sterling KDB CHO dendo
    Abraham Vardy Connolly

    Want to move out CHO and mendy but for whom I am short of ideas

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Downgrade Mendy, upgrade CHO to Mount.

      1. Citizenkane91
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Cho to Traore, Mendy to Robertson.

  23. Bobby Digital

    So how many have 6 players in the Pool City game next week? Makes me wanna wildcard.

    1. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      Just 3 for me

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years

        Lucky u.

    2. Would Ed Woodward

      I think I'll only have two.

    3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years

      Wildcard to get rid of them? Pretty sure you will want them back sharpish 😉

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Free Hit could be a cheeky play though.

    4. baps hunter

      there will be goals don't you think?

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        Could be...

  24. F4L

    was there no injury to Silva today, just tactical?

    1. FOO FIGHTER

    2. Bobby Digital

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          12 months, 1 day ago

          Ota out, Ayew in if you are not keen on getting rid of Sterling. You can then bench Saka.

    2. F4L
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 1 day ago

      first and foremost i'd change your username. Maupay doesn't deserve admiration after his performance today.

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 2 Years
        12 months, 1 day ago

        think im going to keep it going for another week

        1. F4L
          • 5 Years
          12 months, 1 day ago

          might be worth it. i'm thinking about shifting him to Ings soon though, nice fixtures and as long as he stays fit he'll score a few

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • 2 Years

    Sterling, KDB, Maddison, Mount, Cantwell
    Aubameyang, Vardy, Abraham

    Looking to ship Alonso and Otamendi but for who?

    Worth shipping one City mid for a Liverpool mid?

    Lundstram has more overall points than Sterling. Let that sink in

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      So did Pukki at one stage I reckon

  29. Silecro
