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…

    If Rashford blanks, and tammy hauls this GW, can we expect rashford sales and price drop by gw18?

      Thank you everyone. Seems like Aurier gets the most vote. As I have Gazza in goal, this makes even more sense. However, I am tempted to bench Jimi and put all my eggs in Spurs basket. Go for it or play safe by benching Aurier?

      Near perfect. Maybe Tammy in there instead of Jimi at this stage, would make it a 10/10 for now.

      Question:

      If say players who have League Cup ties this midweek and pick up their 5th yellow card for the year this GW17, get banned for that Cup tie only or are they also banned for gw 18?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Gw18 I think

        1. MaticMVP
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          Ah :/.. Thought I put some money on TAA and Sterling getting YC cards this weekend. Guess not.

      Pope
      Baldock Soyuncu Kelly
      KdB Salah Zaha Maddison
      Rashford Ings Vardy

      Right bench order?

    7. LochineFDC
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 21 days ago

      Need to bench two of these four please:

      1) Son
      2) Soyuncu
      3) Lundstram
      4) KDB

      I think KDB could haul but not sure on Son

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Surely, there are other options to consider? Lunds and another not in the option 😀

        1. LochineFDC
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          I have Chilwell, Robbo and Kelly in defence mate. I couldn't get Lundy in, May be Kelly -> Lundy makes sense, but then its a guaranteed CS for me with Kelly IMO.

          1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
              5 months, 21 days ago

              I am benching Kelly... Lundstram could score easily.. dont bench Son or KDB its madness

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          Bench Kelly and soyuncu

      2. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Vardy (bought 8.9) and lundstram (bought 4) contribute to 2.3 out of 4.6 (plus 0.7 itb) of the increase of my team value . Hope they carry on performing 🙂

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          You can expect Vardy to get you points.
          Lundstram's fixtures take a turn for the worse in GW 20.

      3. Johan Queef
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Looking at changing up in the next few weeks. Current front 8 is:

        KDB, Mane, Maddison, Mount, Alli
        Vardy, Jimenez (Connolly)

        Son, Rashford, Tammy are probably top of my wishlist.

        A) Upgrade Mount & stick with 352 (will involve downgrading TAA next week)

        B) Mount to 4.5 and upgrade Connolly to Tammy or Rashford (again involving TAA downgrade)

        C) something else I've missed!

        Thanks 🙂

              Yeah I may look into that. I only want Jimmy for the next 2 so could always work out how to fit in both Rash and Tammy. Too many options at the moment and it's giving me a headache!

        4. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          United have better fixtures in total from 18-21 but Digne more upside attacking wise? Maguire for me, Digne went off with something and i don´t want that for my players for the festive period, Aurier already there and he is a little bit injury prone. Maguire does not seem to score as much as one would imagine given his size, but at 5.3 he is not that far away from TAA, you don´t want to go down at 4.5 as that is more difficult to go back. And United players if performing usually goes tilt up in price. I think Maguire for me, but i´ll wait for gw17 to finish before i do something.

                Yep. Might be best. After this 1.7 itb.

                Maybe better defenders kn future. Now: Taa Soy Lund Tomori, Rico

                    TAA & Lund both are 1 away for suspension and I don't know whether tomori will start this week

                    Def are also now more shocking & conceding goals

              Who would you bench out of Jimenez (TOT) or Soyuncu (NOR), I realise the feeling is generally to go with the attacker when in doubt but is there any reason to swerve from that this week?

                      Swap Ricardo > soyunca & then wait for pulisic to bank and then swap him to Alli for nxt week and a transfer is saved !

                        Well done being ahead of the curve is the best way to play fantasy. Not points chasing like I've been this season.

                        Man that's tough. I think Aurier and Cantwell for sure benched. I guess I'd bench Kelly if I had to.

                        Thanks guys! I have been getting my bench order wrong week after week. At least this week, I can blame someone else 🙂

                        Should I do Jiminez to Ings this GW?

                        To make money for the next few GW.

                          50/50 really. Could backfire but could also gain 4-5 points.

                          Wolves next 4 fixtures are meh! So, if the extra cash itb allows you to get a significant upgrade elsewhere, like Alli or Son etc., I'd do it.

                            Already on it but have KDB. Wouldn’t want to lose KDB just yet. I’d just save this week

                            Do you have a lot of value tied up in Mane? Otherwise, Mane to Son could be a better option given Liverpool's fixtures are a lot worse than City's for the near future.

                          Feeling like I want to (C) either Mane or Tammy this weekend instead of the party. What do you chaps think of that?

                                      Darn, maybe you can offer me advise then

                                      Jiminez to Ings this week to justify Ali/Son in the next few weeks?

                                      1. norab

                                        5 months, 21 days ago

                                        I think that move is ok but Ings likely to dry up sooner than later as his fixtures turn in GW19. Then you might want rid of him in the middle of the busy xmas fixtures when things are dicey at best. I'm personally trying to find an efficient way to upgrade Jimi to Rash. Rashford far better long term than Ings.

                                          I dropped KDB to get Son and that has worked out fine so far

                                            5 months, 21 days ago

                                            Agreed - although Ings for the next 2 weeks.

                                            Next week I will swap Robbo for Kelly and then bump Ings to Rashford the week after..

                                            In your case, Perreira to Kelly or AWB to fund rashford move if your feeling lucky..

                                                In next GW i mean..

                                                That's solid then. Finding a way out of Ings is good.

                                                Been looking at that Pereira move but I also want Grealish as some rotation cover and the only way to get him and Rash is to downgrade TAA for now. And that's not horrible as Liverpool's fixtures not the best all the way to 24

                                                    Wouldnt want to swap out TAA this week..

                                                    Grealish and Rash combo looks great though..

                                        If you’re wanting to be brave, Mane. But if Mane blanks and Vardy hauls you’re looking at a massive rank drop.

                                          That's the fear. Just feel like I'm in position to attempt to win this thing and need a solid jump into the top 100. At this stage only a differential C will do that. Tons of football left I know.

                                            Play safe for now, imo. You could begin to take risks when the chips start to come into play during the DGWs and BGWs.

                                            Well go for it, Liverpool could rip Watford apart, just have to suck it up if it goes horribly wrong! Great rank btw, good luck!

                                              Thanks gents. Just having a look at the team stats and it's gotta be Vardy I think. Still time to decide though.

                                        Salah if chasing but Vardy if leading.
