The Pros and Cons of playing a late FPL Wildcard

Traditionally, my Wildcards rarely made it past Gameweek 3 but in the past couple of seasons, I’ve been experimenting with holding on to it for as long as I can.

Since that’s also my current position and, I imagine, a few other Fantasy managers too, I thought I’d share what I see as the pros and cons of this strategy.

Pros

More Perspective

Probably the most obvious benefit of holding onto your Wildcard is the greater opportunity it offers you to interpret the nature of the season and its protagonists.

For example, I managed to swerve some early season (and quickly-derailed) bandwagons such as Burnley’s Ashley Barnes (£6.3m) or West Ham’s Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.6m) and largely avoided the brief hysteria around Norwich’s free-scoring Brazil-82’-esque attacking form. In general, I feel like I’ve now got a more well-rounded view of how this season might go.

I’ve also now got the freedom to take advantage of the significant shifts that have occurred as a result of managerial changes, the most notable so far being the apparent resurgence of Dele Alli (£8.7m) as a Fantasy option under Jose Mourinho. I can also see how Arsenal and Everton assets evolve under new management.

Less Time Between Wildcards

Holding your Wildcard until later will also mean that you have a smaller window between your first and second Wildcard, something which is perhaps all the more significant since the winter Wildcard was abolished. 

Given that many of us will now hold our second Wildcard in anticipation of some double Gameweeks occurring towards the end of the season, for many that could mean 30-odd Gameweeks between Wildcards, which is a pretty long time to rely on just free transfers. This gap may well translate into missed opportunities or hits for all but the most fortunate.

Freedom to be a Maverick

A key but not often talked about benefit of holding onto your Wildcard is the extra freedom it affords you when it comes to your transfers, both it terms of when you make them and who you transfer in.

My normal strategy is to try and ignore price change and leave my transfers decisions until as late as possible to avoid the risk of injuries etc… However, having a Wildcard means you can take those risks and capture the price changes with early moves, affording you a bigger budget for when you do eventually Wildcard.

It also means you can be a lot more aggressive with who you transfer in and play to shorter Gameweek horizons. I generally tend to look about four-to-six Gameweeks ahead when assessing a player but, when I’m getting closer to when I Wildcard, I allow myself to be much more short term and much riskier in my thinking. I’ll get in players who I would probably not want long-term but look great for the next few fixtures. If it pays off, those players, and the speed at which a manager can move on them versus their opponents, can translate into real differential benefits.

Cons

Missed Opportunities 

Generally I think patience is a virtue for Fantasy managers and holding onto your Wildcard really encourages that discipline, however, it can also lead to missed opportunities.

For example, I only caught the tail-end of Norwich’s Teemu Pukki’s (£6.6m) early-season run of scoring form and, likewise, missed out on Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne’s (£10.2m) early season double-figure-fest almost entirely.

Had I played an early Wildcard, there’s a really good chance both of those players would have been in it and I would have benefited from that.

Budget Issues

Following on from that, because I missed a lot of the early-season bandwagons (good and bad) I also missed out on price-rises at a point when they were most volatile due to more Fantasy managers being active. 

As mentioned, this can be off-set by making earlier transfers, something I believe a later Wildcard better affords, but this method does require a fair amount of luck to truly pay off. 

More significantly, perhaps, is that, when I Wildcard, my team valuation will take a hit and I’ll have less time than earlier Wildcarders to build it up ahead of the second one.

Pressure to Make it Count

My final negative for playing a later Wildcard is the added pressure that it puts on you mentally to do something really special with it.

At that stage of the season, it’s possible that you may have built a squad that you’re actually pretty happy with, but the presence of a Wildcard can convince you that you need to make maverick or wholesale change regardless.

For example, last season, I held my Wildcard until Gameweek 17 and, feeling I needed to maximise any advantage I had from leaving it so late, I ended up ditching all my Liverpool assets ahead of what was, admittedly, a pretty difficult run of fixtures.

Of course, Liverpool ended up performing really well in those difficult fixtures and I ended up not only missing out on huge scores from the likes of Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) but, also, I had to use my free transfers to undo my Wildcard. Something nobody ever really wants to do.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I think there are some unique advantages to holding onto your Wildcard, not least the greater perspective and flexibility it affords you. The opportunity to be more aggressive and experimental with your transfers can also have real benefit, though it requires a bit of luck to pay off.

However, much as I’m sure everyone would love to have a Wildcard right now, I also think it has the potential to be a poisoned chalice, particularly if holding onto it has forced you to miss out on earlier opportunities or if its presence causes you to make changes that are actually detrimental to your team.

There’s an axiom in game theory which states; ‘if you’re going to make mistakes, make them early on’ (or ‘fail fast’ in Silicon Valley parlance) and this may well apply to Wildcards.

I think/hope that there are real benefits to sitting on a Wildcard, however, I must admit that a failed Wildcard is far more preferable early on in the season than halfway through it as you have longer to correct it.

Being reasonably happy with my squad for this week, I’m currently looking at a Gameweek 18 or 19 Wildcard with one or two punts between now and then.

The positive fixture-swing for the likes of Spurs, City and Leicester which occurs around Gameweek 19 looks a particularly ideal time to finally push the button.

But, having said all of that, 2016 FPL overall winner Dimitri Nicolaou didn’t use his first Wildcard at all. So, maybe, that’s the secret…

    Nice read. Still have my WC intact

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Ditto.
      Reflects my thoughts pretty much as well. Would probably have benefited from playing it earlier when I had moved my team in a dead end, but I think GW18 or GW19 for setting up for festive season should offer a few advantages.

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Or the players you get in for GW 20, could be benched/rotated.

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 20 days ago

          KEy is to pick reasonably nailed on budget and bench players while retaining the important big guns.

          1. Slitherene
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 20 days ago

            True!

      2. ChelseaGuy
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Yea but the problem lies in the fact that I like my team really much and actually might burn an FT this week

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 20 days ago

          You could get in Martin, if you have Button.

          1. ChelseaGuy
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 20 days ago

            it's the one I'm looking at actually

    2. Dananz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Maverickish! Good luck!

  4. Dananz
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    I'm completely torn on the captaincy this week. TAA or Rashford?

    1. Hazardous1983
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Taa

    2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Is that the best you can do?

      1. Dananz
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Yes, those are the two most excellent options I have this week.

        1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 20 days ago

          TAA then.

    3. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Rashford. Easy!

      1. Dananz
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Wish it was!

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 20 days ago

          TAA has only 2 low double digit hauls, then a couple 7 pointers & 7 bonus points.

          Whereas Rashford has a much higher ceiling, in form, is less prone to rotation & has earned 20 bonus points this season.

          Yet you're completely torn!

          1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 20 days ago

            Rashford only has one more double digit haul than TAA.

            TAA is a good option this week.

            1. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 20 days ago

              And four 9 pointers. My point was that Rashford probably has a higher ceiling than TAA.

              1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 20 days ago

                I’m not doubting that rashfords a good pick, I’m just saying I can see why he is torn.

                Pool clean sheet likely and if TAA got an assist then it’s an easy 12 pointer.

                1. Dananz
                  • 4 Years
                  5 months, 20 days ago

                  Thanks. I appreciate both of you for sharing your thoughts.

                2. Slitherene
                  • 2 Years
                  5 months, 20 days ago

                  I think you'd agree with me when I say Liverpool will just run riot, right?

                  3 bonus points with a single assist? Na, not that likely.

                  1. Slitherene
                    • 2 Years
                    5 months, 20 days ago

                    Could go either way though.

          2. Dananz
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 20 days ago

            Well, when you put it that way!

            This just seems like a good opportunity for that clean sheet + attacking haul that's always around the corner for TAA. But I'm so weary of these "easy games" that don't turn out to be easy games. Like, it "should" be easy to back Rashford at home, with the form he's in, against Everton... But I guess I've still got Everton's win against Chelsea in my mind. Maybe I should be focusing on United's win against City, but are they really going to be amped for Everton? Questions, questions...

    4. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Vardy or Salah if you have them.

      1. Hazardous1983

            1. Dananz
              • 4 Years

              It is possible.

            2. No Professionals
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 20 days ago

              Should?

      2. Dananz
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        I don't.

    Is anyone considering TC Vardy? I’m very tempted but think it’s smarter to wait for double gw’s

    1. in sane in de bruyne

      DGW

      AZ is, see HT. DGW gives 2 bites, potential for better returns for being... more conservative.

      Liverpool blank in GW18 means they may have a DGW in the future.....imagine a Salah or Mane TC haul then!

    Pope, button
    VVD, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Kelly, Tomori
    Salah, Mane, Maddison, KDB, Saka
    Vardy, Jimenez, Moussett

    2FTs, 0.1 ITB, WC available

    I'm thinking:

    A) Mane, Jimenez > Son, Rashford

    Or

    B) KDB > Son

    Just a strong believer of using the wildcard when you need it.

    Went from 34,000 OR in GW6 to 1,097,720 OR by GW11. Used my Wilcard GW12 and got a green arrow every week since then and now up to 107,559.

    Should of used it sooner but I was just holding on to Aguero too long which killed my rank

      Perhaps downgrade Mount to burn a ft and make some cash as back 5 looks good

      I haven't gotten over 60 points in any gameweek after deducting any hits taken since GW1. If I don't get a mega haul this week I will be raging.

  26. The Gobstopper
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Quick question on what to do with a stupid decision...

    Last week I transferred in Zaha (thinking that he might offer some good returns over the easy fixture stretch), but considering dumping him for Martial (could jump on the Grealish train as well...).

    Here's the question, is it absurd to dump Zaha now for either of those two? I mean, the fixtures are great, but CP have only scored 14 goals all season...and not certain they're going to average more than a goal per game in the future.

    So...thoughts?

    1. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      No you might as well give him this week atleast

    2. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      I honestly wouldn't want any of the three

      1. The Gobstopper
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Really? Martial is averaging 5.2 points per match and has returns in 6 of 9 matches where he's played more than 6 minutes. That's pretty good in my book...

    3. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Grealish is on 4 YC. Wait for that train to crash.
      Personally I have zero interest in Martial. Just a yellow flag waiting to happen.

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Think just stick as how would you feel if he gets a brace and you had sold him

      1. The Gobstopper
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah. That's the fear...but the other fear is to hold on to him and watch others score for fun...

    2. Revival

      Thinking Tammy given Chelsea's next 2 home games are Bournemouth and Southampton
