Why I’m betting against Vardy captaincy to make big FPL gains

Back from a nice vacation in Thailand, I’ve got a readymade excuse for being off my game a little for the last few days.

The last really good week I had was Gameweek 12 where I bet against Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) and Anthony Martial (£7.6m) was handed the armband against Brighton. This was one of five valiant attempts of betting against ‘Jammy’ Vardy.

It almost came through with Vardy managing his returns only after the 65th minute. I’ve soon realised this became a norm as the Leicester forward loves his second-half returns.

Martial didn’t do too badly either though and got two assists himself in a Gameweek he statistically outperformed Vardy.

I got a nice 83 points (Gameweek rank of 43k) with me being very early on the now prominent Vardy, Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) and Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m) frontline which propelled me from 130k to 45k.

I’m sure you must be wondering why I call Vardy ‘jammy’. It’s not about the statistical over-performance for me. I know all about that. It’s more about the jam that AppleBonkers brought to my attention.

He got 50 minutes versus ten men against Newcastle United which led to a brace. Then he got 78 minutes against the ten men of Southampton and netted a hat-trick. Last time out Tyrone Mings (£4.5m) naively refusing to come off when he sustained a hamstring injury absolutely gifting him Leicester’s opening goal and then he got a nice 45 minute run out at a poor Aston Villa defence without their best centre-back.

After that amazing Gameweek 12, Mourinho was appointed by Tottenham Hotspur. I am a huge Jose fan and immediately realised that Harry Kane (£10.9m) was there for the taking as a differential.  Kane facing Bournemouth and West Ham in Gameweek 13 and 14 was something I simply could not ignore.

I told myself this is a two-week flirtation against Mr. Jammy Vardy and if it doesn’t work, I would bring the Leicester man back. I am extremely comfortable switching big-hitters this season as mentioned in my strategy here.

My thinking is that I will always back myself to go against the grain with a short-term switch especially when it involves captaincy to make quick ground.

The basic idea is that if more than 70% of my switches (I say switches and not gambles because they are all thought through) come through, I should find myself having another good season. People play this game with way too much fear for my liking.

Vardy outscored Kane by 10 points in those two weeks. Not much damage done in my books (except for when I saw Kane’s haul last Gameweek).

You have to think of some of these results like bad beat in Poker. You cannot afford to go on tilt. Temperament is everything and if the results don’t go your way, do not lose your shit. Correct your mistakes quickly and always try thinking without baggage.

I gave the Anti-Vardy strategy another go last weekend by putting the armband on Mohamed Salah (12.2m) facing a depleted Bournemouth. Salah got a nice 13-pointer and I found myself jumping from 138k to 60k only for Vardy to match Salah later and push me back further. Hamstrung Mr. Mings needs to be thanked here.

I’ve been pretty much dilly-dallying between 50k and 170k for the last ten Gameweeks. While some might get frustrated with this, I don’t see a huge problem with that and I’m very comfortable to hold ground in this range as I feel that I am two good ‘switch-hits’ away from pushing myself into the top 40k permanently. Holding position is a very underrated concept and I don’t mind it at all when I’m constantly finding myself gambling against the grain.

Having recently returned from my holiday, I found myself under-confident and all over the place. Football hadn’t been seen. Articles hadn’t been read. Stats hadn’t been scanned. I wasn’t early on Alli & Son and was upset off about that.

My advice to Fantasy managers is that when life comes in the way, find two hours for Match of the Day (pick your matches if you have lesser time) and 20 minutes for a quick scan of the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area.

In the past three days, I’ve covered ground with my research. I feel like I am in a good place now and ready to take on December. I’ve caught up on the highlights, scanned the stats and read those beautiful reports by Neale and David.  

This is my current set up and I’m likely going to save this week. But there is one thing bothering me big time. I really really want Marcus Rashford (£8.9m).  

He is currently matching Sadio Mané (£12.3m) and Vardy for a lot less money. It genuinely feels like he’s at the cusp of superstardom. I am a Manchester United fan and this is by a distance the best I have seen him play. He genuinely looks unplayable.

For six years, I’ve not had a player that has me impatiently waiting for his next performance. I have that feeling right now and it’s absolutely beautiful. He just needs to be consistent.

The problem with wanting Rashford is that the current frontline is firing on all cylinders and is very difficult to sell. The move also needs to be probably funded by selling a Liverpool asset. Then there is the narrative that United are abysmal against a deep block and can only really play counter-attacking football against strong teams. Despite the results which support the narrative, I decided to look into the stats for the same.

Rashford vs the top seven (left) and against the bottom 13 (right)
Rashford vs the top seven (left) and against the bottom 13 (right)
Rashford vs the top seven (left) and against the bottom 13 (right)

Using the FFScout Member’s Area Flat-Track Bully Tool, I looked at Rashford’s stats against the top seven (The current top seven with Arsenal replacing Wolves) and then looked at his numbers in meetings with the other 13 teams.

The results were very interesting and in my opinion ‘myth-busting’. 

Rashford has a higher xG, more goals, more goal attempts and a much higher goal conversion rate against the top seven. Against the weaker teams, he has a higher xA, more goal attempts in the box, more big chances and more big chances created.

The goal conversion rate falls down from 35% to a staggering 9.7% against weaker opposition. This could be more chance than anything else and Rashford has only recently finding top form and his last two games being against tougher opposition might have something to do with those stats. This gives me enough conviction to make the move for Rashford either this week or next.

Until then, I will be pondering the merits of another switch-hit armband against Jammy Vardy. He plays the easiest defence in the league. But a certain FPL giant is finding form and he can No-Mo be ignored. I’ll leave you with this nice little stat. Good luck for the Gameweek!

      Interesting captaincy. I’ve been betting against Vardy for far too long. It is never worth the risk, the most successful thing I’ve done is at least match him eg like going salah over him last week. No point now for me.

      1. james 101

        When vardy is on a roll like this just captain him and sit back and enjoy it mate.

        You could get unlucky but on average over a few weeks it’s working out great.

      Isn't Mane and Salah double up differential enough without captaining one of them?

        I personally think there isn't much between Mane, Salah and Vardy. If that's the case, i'm betting on pens for Mo and more points for goal and CS for the mid.

        But i'm comfortable playing that way and not everyone is.

        1. Would Ed Woodward

          I considered pens but worried that Milner starts for Robertson this week.

      Great article, thanks! Between Vardy and Mane for me. Wary of the early kick off and new Watford manager though!

      great article, but betting against Vardy right now is madness (though I'm rubbish at this game so...)

        2 months ago most people would have said betting against Salah versus Watford at home is madness.

        1. james 101
          • 8 Years

          This game is all about timing though. First mover advantage (if you bet right) is huge.

      Hey I've done the same and captained Alli instead ir Vardy , it was working ok untill...
      What do you think about Abraham for this gameweek ? Also have Mané

        i'd be worried about minutes for Tammy. Mane is a good shout.

    All eyes on the early team sheets tomorrow. Probably wise to make a plan in case any of the Liverpool guys are benched and you have 2 minutes to make a transfer. If Mane/TAA are benched it's worth getting rid since they don't play next weekend. Doubt they will be benched like but you never know

    1. Pukki Party

    Vardy(c) for me all the way though.

    I can’t see a big enough upside to gamble elsewhere this GW.

        Yeah I get the temptation for sure.

    • 1 Year
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Good article, I also had the VAJ frontline in GW12 with Martial, I capped Salah last week too but I've been on Vardy all this week and haven't really considered switching. The way I see it, attacking returns can be split between Salah and Mane where as Vardy is always the focal point of their attack. Interesting stuff about Rashford, I think I might have to bring him in soon if he continues to impress against Everton, I don't wanna lose Jimi vs Norwich though, tough decisions incoming.

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      I wouldn’t assume Rashford is automatically good vs weak teams if he impresses vs a high pressing Ferguson Everton mate. It plays into his hands. He’s a great pick and a big reason for my rank rise but I wouldn’t assume he debunks the worries this weekend. The games after are the true test.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 24 days ago

        It'll take a lot for me to believe that we're gonna be anywhere close to consistent as a team but the Rashwagon will explode if he returns again, could be dangerous to ignore.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          good point about Vardy being focal.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 24 days ago

          Rashford is on fire and on penalty ... that's good enough for me. And if United were improving towards more consistent performance, it's even better.

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 24 days ago

            Yeah, great pick but I can't get there without a hit this week and don't wanna lose anyone, thought about it earlier in the week.

      Vardy

        Convinced he will outscore Mane? Also, I need to catch up and think others will all C Vardy...risky but he has had a long rest Mane

      Vardy a no brainer imo.

      Will be captained by over 2m again, very likely to score and get BP. Will hurt a lot more if you captain Mane and he blanks rather than a Vardy blank.

      I did KDB and Jimenez to Martial And Rashford this week if that helps mate, Richarlison could be a good option too imo!!

        Double Utd make me nervous!

          Haha I agree it does me too, I’m giving Martial 3 games(Everton,Watford,Newcastle) and will reassess, easy switch to Maddison or Richarlison or even Dilva later on.

      In a similar position to me. Not sure what to do with my team but got 2FT so need to use one. Thinking of swapping Rico or Dendo for someone but might need them with Liverpool blank next week.

    Either of these worth a -4 for Auba and Traore?

    A) Rashford and Willian/Zaha
    B) Abraham and Martial
    C) Maupay for Auba 1FT (then Son and Guiata in next week for -4)

  26. Flying Dutchman

    Suggestions?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Jimmy to Rashford

      1. Flying Dutchman
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Then downgrade Pulisic?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          If you want Rashford yes, wouldnt do it for a hit though

    Planning on zaha to grealish after this gw.
    If grealish gets a yellow this weekend, will he serve the ban midweek against Liverpool?

    1. sk24

    Vardy Jiminez (Connolly)

    2FT

    Would you do Perez and Mount to Maddison and Cantwell as unsure about Perez and Mount minutes

    1. Tomas_brolin
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 24 days ago

      I reckon mount starts

      Get rid of Perez because of minutes and their next couple fixtures
