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)

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!

      G2G , I personally don't like double Spurs, but many do.

      Not worth a hit for sure.

      Thanks for the advice mate, was just unsure whether or not tottenham will turn wolves over, looking at you're set up it looks like you do...

        I had them both last week, so just going to continue with both over the Christmas fixtures and then reassess. Long term both are too much, I’m looking at either as an easy way to get KDB back in the side.

        1. MrGraysDomination

          Fairplay makes sense

    Just the last spot to decide. Who to start?

      Jimi. Fully rested in midweek EL and he likes to play the big boys. Spurs to concede. Jimi brace. I thought The Mousse was a doubt anyway. Missed the last gw

        I'm a bit doubt with him too. Also, he has never completed 90 minutes on the pitch.

      Get rid of jimi for Tammy? Or save ft for next week? 🙂

      1. Dynamic Duos

        Tammy is the one that I am not comfortable having this week

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I’m holding Jimi. Best captain next week imo v Norwich

      4. BigPointDipper
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah, history does show Jimi likes the big 6 so hopfully that continues... just think a good Chelsea win midweek and a injury stricken Bournemouth looks like an appealing game..

      5. Ha.

        Bit stuck with what to do. I have 2 FTs and 2.8 ITB but not much flexibility. Want rid of Connolly and KWP.

        Pope
        TAA / Lundstram / Soyuncu
        Grealish / Mane / Maddison / KDB / Pulisic
        Vardy / Ings

        Subs: Heaton / Connolly / KWP / Guilbert

        Thinking KWP > Kelly and rolling the other ft. Thoughts?

        1. Konstaapeli

          Yes. Get Kelly or aurier

        Is there anyone willing to explain EO to me and how it relates to your overall rank?I kind of get it.

        So my rank is 250k and vardy's EO was over 100% last game week on fplstats. Is that related to me personally?

        Bottom of thread soz.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          If a players ownership is over 100% and you don't captain him you will loose rank if he gets points.

        2. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 1 day ago

          No it’s the effective ownership of the player either overall or within the top 10k. If players captain a player they double their ownership And EO illustrates this

        3. noquarternt
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          EO in the top 10K, if it’s over 100% (say 150%) it means for every 1 point Vardy scores in FPL, the top 10K average rises 1.5.m (due to captaincies and triple captaincies).

          If you own him and don’t captain him, you lose out. (Unless your captain gives him a pounding).

        On FH chip

        Salah and Kelly

        If early team news from reliable source showed Salah playing and Mané benched would you take -4 to swap Mané for Salah and captain?

          i consider jimi to abraham/rashford
          or if your looking for a differential what about Jesus
          and replace one of mount/pulisic to son/alli (or fixtures favor palace maybe Zaha)

          something to consider

      14. MoManeTaa

        Pulisic / KDB/ Alli / Mane / Maddy Tammy / Vardy / Ings

        Betting against Vardy is not just crazy it is stupid!

          Got to agree.

          I get betting against him for rank jumps, but this isn’t one of those weeks to take that risk IMO.

        Tammy a ball hair behind bookies favourite Vardy in the "To score two or more goals" market but the latter has twelve times the amount of votes in the captains poll.

          You can only have one captain

              I'd definitely play Lundstram. SHU xGC at home last 4 is almost half what Palace's is.

              1. FirMinaMiMo
                  7 months, 1 day ago

                  Yup bud 🙂

            3. Eh, just one more thing ...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 1 day ago

              Who bench from these four defenders please .... Aurier . Robertson . Socyuan . Lundstrum . ..?

              1. petergriff
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                7 months, 1 day ago

                Aurier. I know you probably have him to get ahead of the curve, but if they all score the same points then Aurier as lowest owned is the best to bench as least risk to OR.

                Aurier this week

              Hi all, 2 bad GWs in a row have sent me from 200k to 500k.

              Any advice much appreciated, i've over-thought this way too much now.

              Pope
              TAA Lundy Soyuncu Lindelof
              Mane KDB Alli
              Vardy(c) Jimenez Abraham

              Button Cantwell Hayden Rico
              2.9m ITB
              1 FT

              I'm very tempted to get Maddison, but i'm 0.2m short of Cantwell>Maddison so that's a -4. Or i do have exact funds for Cantwell>Martial for free.

              So:
              A) Cantwell > Martial (Free)
              B) Lindelof&Cantwell > Kelly&Maddison (would be v frustrating if Ings outscores Jimenez over next 4 though)
              C) Jimenez&Cantwell > Ings&Maddison (-4)
              D) Save (though i've been too slow to get on points recently, so am not scared to take a hit this week)

                  7 months, 1 day ago

                  Get martial....with 3-4-3 lineup

                Morning all. But if a strange one. Would you play Jimimez against Spurs or Kelly against Brighton?

                  Favour the attacker. But that's very close to call

                  You’re liable to get 6 points either way.
