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…

    It really is a toss up between John Lundstram (AVL) and Caglar Soyuncu (NOR) this week isn’t it...

    I think Soyuncu more likely to CS but that is always dangerous to rely on a CS... Lundstram more likely to concede but plays as a midfielder and more attacking potential (was unfortunate not to get points last game, although Soyuncu almost scored too)... that and the high ownership % of Lundstram in comparison of the two and that most will likely start him this week makes it a risk not going with him in case he scores well.

    I think on that basis Lundstram plays with Soyuncu first sub, making my defence:

    Henderson
    TAA Chilwell Lundstram

    Good to go?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Soy should have scored last GW

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

        Yep, point blank header saved by the GKs head...

        Who would you play out of the two (considering Henderson and Chilwell are starting for me)??

            • 4 Years

            no he is going to miss out with injury...

              Lundstram and hope for attacking returns then.

      2. Warby84

        Agree, and I had Grealish and no LEI defender so was happy..

        who would i bench instead...

        Chilwell, Mount, Jimenez only feasible options

          • 9 Years

          Is chilwell injured? if not play lundstream. rotation will probably mean that your first bench player will come in anyway

  4. KINGS

    Seeing more teams with 4.5m set-n-forget keeper.

      1. KINGS
        • 1 Year

        Especially this season. In the past, they used to be rotated

    2. nimbin_headers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      with cheaper its very trickky to pick the best one and is usally get it wrong so yes 4.5 and 4.0 or 5 and 4.0 way to go IMO

    3. Regin
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I find rotating keepers more interesting. It can right or wrong. Set and forget boring strategy.

    1. Major League Shocker

      PVA+Ings -> cheap def + Rash?

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Or delay the Ings -> Rash part one week if you think Ings will score more this week

    2. CroatianHammer

      I've not checked injury or suspensions but aren't PVA and Chilwell not playing this weekend? I've that knocking about the back of my head. If so, this would give you a 3-4-3 line-up (benching Cantwell).

      Use a FT to change Button for a playing keeper. Seriously. I do not get the fetish for having a non-playing second keeper. They're usually so hard to change up later on.

      1. Monkey Hanger

  16. Mo Salah No Mane
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    I really want to captain Mane over Vardy. The clean sheet odds for Watford and Norwich are almost identical.

    Only problem is if Liverpool get a few goals Mane gets subbed off. The same doesn't happen with Vardy.

    Also Vardy has the higher ownership and would hurt more.
    Also my cup opponent is likely to captain Mane and doesn't own Vardy.

    Advice please???
    Mane or Vardy Captain?

        I was in the same boat not too long ago purely out of stubborness and hoping for the party too end.

  17. noahzark22

    Heaton
    Robertson, Lundstram, Alexander-Arnold
    Maddison, Tielemans, De Bruyne, Pulisic
    Ings, Vardy, Aubameyang

    Button, Cantwell, Fredericks, Kelly

    1FT, 1.1 ITB. Likely hold on to all three LEI for one more week. Still have WC so I'm sitting good for this winter period. Any other thoughts?

  18. Teahupo'o
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Been debating this move all week. Will Everton put up a good fight defensively with Duncan.. will the London derby next week be open.. etc.

    Kane ➡ Rashford or save FT (possibly do TAA Abraham ➡ 6.4 Rashford next gw)?

    Pope
    TAA Lundstram Soyuncu
    Mane Son Alli Mount
    Vardy Kane Abraham

    (Button, Cantwell Kelly Williams)
    1FT 0.2ITB

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Probably best to save but I would be tempted.

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Personally i think United have stepped up a gear now and confidence will be high, always a good thing. Can see us beating Everton comfortably, and Chelsea should demolish Bou.
      I can see the temptation, I expect Rash to score higher than Kane though this GW, just my opinion.

    3. Teahupo'o
      • 8 Years

      Thank you, both. I appreciate the feedback. Another 40 minutes or so to ponder it.

        Yea, almost the same price as Son, who is 23/10.

            Those I gave were William Hill. Obviously not the bookmaker to go to when looking for value. 🙂

    Jim to Rash or Tammy?

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

      My questions too. Leaning towards Rash due to Chelsea's upcoming fixture run.

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

        Except Spurs away next I think the fixtyres for Chelsea look great

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

          You are right. I didn;t look properly. I'm torn between Tammy or Rash then

    2. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Tammy for this week only.
      Rash longer term

    3. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Rash

    4. Geezer
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Cheers all. Rash it is

  23. seewhyaxe
    • 3 Years

    Just bit the bullet and took a -4.

    Wish me luck please.

    Out: Zaha & Jim
    In: Grealish & Rashford

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

      How long until price changes?

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

        30 mins I reckon?

        1. Geezer
          • 9 Years

          Cheers

      2. Mo Salah No Mane

        45 minutes

    2. waldo666

        Thanks Waldo!

  24. The Suspended One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Start Cantwell or Alli (-4)

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

      Alli

    2. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      I'd go Alli minus 4
      Don't you have any other player that can start?
      Cantwell might not start and even if he does it looks like a 1 pointer for him.

    3. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      Should get that -4 paid back pretty quickly I reckon.

  25. Queens of the South Age

    Which one to bench out of these 3? Definitely starting TAA and need to pick 2 others.

    A. Aurier
    B. Lundstram
    C. Kelly

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      B and C

    2. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 20 days ago

      A&C

      1. waldo666
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 20 days ago

        Read that wrong, definitely play Lundstram. Not sure who I would play out of Aurier and Kelly tbh.

  26. olidooley
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 20 days ago

    Gtg?

    Gazzaniga
    TAA Söyüncü Lundstram
    Mané KDB Maddison Alli
    Abraham Vardy(c) Rashford

    McGovern Kelly Reid Dendoncker

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yep.

  27. No Salah
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    2FT, 0.2 ITB

    I guess nothing better to do other downgrading Roberto to 4.0?

    Gazza
    Pereira Roberto Lund
    Mane Salah Madisson Zaha
    Vardy(c) Jiménez Tammy

    Roberto Traore Rico Williams

    1. No Salah
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      That defender is Robertson, LOL

      1. Mo Salah No Mane
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Not this week
        Can't you do Jimi to Rash?

      2. Mo Salah No Mane
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Oh no money itb
        So are you referring to downgrading Roberto or Robertson?

        1. No Salah
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          Downgrading Roberto to 4.0 rather than burn a FT.

          Is there any better suggestions?

          For GW18 my plan is to get rid of all of Mané salah and Robertson for a hit.

  28. sthelenslad92

    5 months, 19 days ago

    Start Kelly or Jimenez?

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Jimenez. Wolves should be good enough to get at least a draw imo.

    England!! What have you done? First the Brexit vote, now this...

    1. Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Did you see the alternative ?

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        I have...Anything is better than Conservative (the party that looks backward, are you old enough to remember Thatcherism? It almost ruined you) or Boris (a disaster posing as a politician). Even the late Screaming Lord Sutch would have been a better alternative.

        Enjoy Brexit, pal.

        1. Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          I'm 57 "pal" so lived through all of the times you mention. Do you regard Corbyn as credible , a man who refused to nominate any definitive stance on Brexit ? Have you actually examined his policies ? I doubt it very much . Your comment is rather superficial .

          1. SAY MY NAME
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 19 days ago

            this - Corbyn is a throwback to 70s style centralised Marxist systems, as cringe worthy as Boris can be, he beats Jer anyday!

            i really hate these poorly informed anti-Brexit panic mongerers (well, inferred from the 'enjoy brexit pal' comment anyway), there will be some positives and some negatives, but the 2 of the richest countries in Europe, Norway and Switzerland, do fine not being in the EU (i know different structure economies, but nonetheless) so i'm sure after some adjustment we'll be fine

            It's not like we were politically popular in European decision making, basically France+Germany decide the policy and everyone else must fall in line

              Great summary. The orginal comment at the head of this post was one originating from complete ignorance of the UK political landscape.
