Fifth of top 10k FPL managers yet to play first Wildcard

Roughly a fifth of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers are yet to use their first Wildcard.

Time is running out to deploy this chip as it is only active for the next three Gameweeks, disappearing after Gameweek 20.

Following the passing of Saturday’s deadline for Gameweek 17, 81.09% of the top 10k had played their Wildcard.

As you can see from the table above, 0.87% of them played the Wildcard for Gameweek 17, taking the overall total for the top 10k to 81.09%.

That means 18.9% of managers at this level still have it in their pocket, ready to deploy over the Christmas period.

Our ProPundit writer Simon March did an article earlier this week on the pros and cons of using the Wildcard later in the season and is certainly an interesting read. READ IT HERE.

Those that do deploy their Wildcard between now and the end of the year may well end up with squads that look a bit like the above.

This is the template Wildcard put together by those using it for Gameweek 17.

As you can see, the Brighton double-up between the sticks is the most-popular goalkeeper combination, featuring Mat Ryan (£4.8m) and David Button (£4.0m).

The most fashionable defenders in these select squads match the quintet considered the best by the majority of top 10k managers.

John Lundstram (£5.1m), Martin Kelly (£4.3m), Çaglar Söyüncü (£5.1m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) and Diego Rico (£4.3m) are all the top five most popular defenders both for the top 10k generally, and those who Wildcarded for Gameweek 17 – in the same order as well.

There is some disparity in midfield though.

Sadio Mané (£12.3m), who assisted and had a headed goal ruled out for offside in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday, is the most popular in both sets, in 87.4% of Wildcard squads and 85.8% of top 10k squads.

By contrast, Mohamed Salah (£12.2m), who has double-figure hauls in each of his last two Premier League outings, is only in 16.8% of top 10k squads, suggesting he can act as a powerful differential at this level from Gameweek 19 onwards, as Liverpool are without a fixture in Gameweek 18.

While James Maddison (£7.8m) is in 59.6% of top 10k squads for Gameweek 17, he is in 71.3% of the Wildcard squads at this level, indicating how popular he is.

The Wildcard users have also taken the opportunity to invest in the Spurs midfield double-up too, with considerably more vigour than the rest of the top 10k.

Son Heung-min (£10.0m) and Dele Alli (£8.7m) are in 56.3% and 42.5% of Wildcard squads at this level but are only in 51.8% and 34.7% respectively in normal top 10k teams.

The true power of these players for those further down the rankings is shown by how few managers own Son and Alli overall. As things stand, their worldwide ownership figures are 21.0% and 12.5% respectively.

Meanwhile, if Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m) manages to return to usual FPL form against Arsenal’s then he could help arrest a slew of sales.

He may still be in 60% of top 10k squads but that number has been falling each week for some time now.

Furthermore, the Manchester City midfielder has been selected by just 37.9% of top 10k managers playing their Wildcard for Gameweek 17.

So far, it has been a disappointing Gameweek for the in vogue forward line of Jamie Vardy (£10.1m), Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.0m).

The Leicester City forward was handed an overwhelming majority for the Gameweek 17 captaincy, with 71.2% backing for it among the top 10k, but arguably failed to fully deliver on his promise.

Despite finishing the match at the King Power Stadium with more shots on target than any other player, Vardy did not find the net officially.

He was initially awarded the goal for Leicester’s equaliser but was shortly after stripped of it, Tim Krul (£4.5m), quite rightly, accredited with an own-goal instead.

Meanwhile, Mané (backed by 18.6%) came in as a distant second, managing to outscore Vardy by one point.

As already mentioned, Salah’s big haul against Watford was especially powerful for those who captained him.

With the vast majority of top 10k managers getting 10 points for Vardy, a 32-point haul for the Egyptian will surely have propelled the 4.5% who captained him into the highest reaches.

As for the rest of the popular forward line, Abraham blanked in a surprise defeat to Bournemouth while Rashford awaits his owners in a meeting with Everton on Sunday afternoon.

A final word on the chips as 2.6% of the top 10 deployed the Triple Captain for Gameweek 17.

Our Scoutcaster and ProPundit Az also pulled the trigger for his enhanced armband.

Like many of those in the top 10k, the chosen recipient was Vardy, and, chances are, his Triple Captain backers were expecting a lot more than one assist against Norwich.

    Would you rather :
    A: sell Salah and Mount for KdB and Martial and bench Tomori and Nakamba or

    B:sell Maddison and Mount for Martial and McGinn and play one of the Tomori/Nakamba.

    P.S. i dont have Mane and if i rid Salah i will want him again soon.

    Have Vardy and Soy from Leicester

    1. KINGS

        I have both Mane and Maddy. Thinking of selling just Mane or both

        1. Niho992

          I think i will keep Salah at the end. Mount is priority for me

          United have great fixtures, much better than LEI imo so im going for Tony too

    2. HenryTheKid
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Team as it stands for GW18
        Pope (Button)
        Lundstram Rico Kelly (Soy, Robertson)
        Son, Maddison, Pulisic, Traore (Mane)
        Vardy, Tammy, Rashford

        Still have WC intact, planning to use in GW19 or 20
        Not super happy with how the team looks for GW18, major concerns being the defense, Pulisic (out of form, tough fixture), and Traore
        With 1FT and 1.0 ITB, my options are:
        A) Traore -> Grealish
        B) Robertson + Traore -> Baldock/Willems + Richarlison -4
        C) Robertson + Pulisic -> Baldock/Willems + Alli -4
        D) Pulisic -> Richarlison
        E) Something else

        1. HenryTheKid
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Aurier also an option to bring in for Robertson

              What's the advantage of playing it GW19 over this GW?

              1. HenryTheKid
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  I'd actually probably play WC in GW20 for after Liverpool vs Leicester. Reason I don't want to play WC now is if I made a team for GW18 the team structure would be very different to how I want my team to look in the medium-long term, due to the liverpool blank and tough fixtures for Spurs, Chelsea, City and Leicester assets

                  1. Alnair
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    You're thinking about it wrong. If you WC the team you want for GW19 right now will it outscore your current GW18 team?

                    In most cases I think it will, especially if you've got dead wood like Pulisic and Tielemans like I do 😀

                    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 7 days ago

                      Those WCing GW20 will almost certainly have triple Leicester and Liverpool. Not sure much points are to be had in all likelihood for these players in GW18 or 19.

              E - Time to WC. Why wait a week?

              1. HenryTheKid
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  Because team structure for GW18 will be very different to rest of season due to liverpool blank

                1 month, 7 days ago

                defense should be okay - I'm on Lunds, Rico, Willems (Pereira, Robertson) ...
                If you are going to use your WC later then I would see a non-playing player, not Pulisic
                Robertson could go down tomorrow, so you may want to take profit on him before he drops and punt on another defender

              Aurier over Kelly if money isn't an issue?

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                if Spurs slots aren't an issue ...

                  Only have Alli altho Kdb could be shipped for Son soon..

                  1. HashAttack
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 7 days ago

                    I have Son, Alli and Gazza ... but I also think Sissoko makes a damn good 5th mid at 4.9m

                WC this lot or save it for GW19?

                Pope
                Lundstram Kelly Rico
                KdB Alli Pulisic Tielemans
                Vardy Jimenez Ings

                McGovern Soyuncu Mane Robbo

                I honestly don't think Pulisic or Tielemans will get anything. I could get a team like this instead...

                Guaita
                Aurier Lundstram Kelly Rico
                Son Alli Martial Grealish

                  What’s happening in GW 19?

                  1. JabariParkersEyelid
                      1 month, 7 days ago

                      Pool are back. So could use a transfer or 2 to power up for this week then wildcard them back in later I suppose.

                      1 month, 7 days ago

                      Are you alright with no Liverpool defense after GW19?

                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 7 days ago

                        Yeah, I can easily get TAA in because my defense is so cheap.

                        But tbh, looking at the fixtures I can't see myself wanting more than 2 Liverpool players until Jan

                        Thinking the same. Tielemans and Pulisic pretty much guaranteed to blank anyway.

                    2 FT
                    Doing Mane to Son as 1 FT

                    Alongside this do:
                    A) Zaha to Grealish (start Soyunco)
                    B) VVD to someone (who??) (and start Zaha, bench Soy)

                      TC Vardy could have worked well. But the decision shouldn’t been taken

                        1 month, 7 days ago

                        Just one of those days for him. He looked well up for it...and with some luck it could have been a good day for TC’ers...

                        I don’t understand why folk TC a player that is highly fancied as captain on any given week anyway...it dilutes the effect of a good TC pick. Surely the right time to play it is when their is a split captain vote several ways and hope you get the right one.

                          1 month, 7 days ago

                          The right time to play it is when you think it will bring you the most points, simple as that

                          1. Polka Wakey O'Dot

                            1 month, 7 days ago

                            Playing a TC on a player in week when everybody else has captained the same player is absolutely not the right way to use that chip. It just isn’t.

                            I might agree with you if it was used on somebody like Salah this week...or a lower placed (c) pick in other weeks....

                          Precisely, which is why I TC'd Salah this week. Luckily, it worked out nicely.

                      Anything worth a move here ya reckon?

                      A) Tomori > Aurier?
                      B) Pulisic > Maddison?
                      C) Both A + B for -4?
                      D) TAA + Pulisic > Aurier + KDB -4?

                      Just wondering where to go from here, struggling a little at just over a mill OR yikes.

                          I like A - Since Mane and TAA aren't playing GW18 you're looking at Dendoncker coming on as a sub. I'd rather 433 with Aurier in the team

                            That's true, exactly what i were thinking, good chance of Spurs keeping a cleanie also, much rather play 433

                            Probably the vast majority I’d imagine. What’ll be more interesting I think is the breakdown of the triple up - I expect the standard to perhaps be Aurier, Alli and Son. I’m more inclined initially to go down a triple attack route with Son, Alli and Kane.

                                1 month, 7 days ago

                                Agree the potential of Kane as well

                              Alli n son for long already but no way to fit in Kane 🙁

                              Yes. It's one reason why I'm thinking to WC now. While everyone's teams are full of Leicester, City and Liverpool players, this could be a good time to shoot up using Spurs and United players.

                                I don't think many highly ranked players will have more than one City player and most will already have 2/3 Spurs

                                Best midfielder to buy this week?

                                a. Alli
                                b. Martial

                                  For one week only? I’d take Martial from those dependant on tomorrow

                                    I have Alli, Son and Rashford, but no citiy, ... I'm thinking Richarlison ahead of b,c and d

                                    Gw 18 team looking descent but no bench what so ever...

                                    I could send out this line up and not burning a FT, hoping for the best and hope that Greenwood gets a start or at least a few minutes of the bench. Or I could use my FT to get a 4.3 defender instead of janmaat (Kelly, Rico, etc.) and put dendoncker or Greenwood as my first and only sub...
                                    Opinions?

                                      Given you have an FT, why wouldn't you replace Janmaat?

                                        Not really as excited about the tripple spurs as everyone else but could be in the cards if alli keeps up his form

                                          I see what you mean. You'll have a very weak team for GW18 though.

                                          It might very be better to go ahead and do those 2 moves for a -4 now, than play the team you have.

                                    Very tempting to free hit. Have triple liv so no bench and don't really fancy any of my players to haul, even Lundstram is a bit meh, he's not had an way clean sheet for 4 games, in fact he only has one attacking return away from home all season. Loads of us must have a similar problem.

                                    Free hit team would look something like this;

                                    DDG
                                    Willems Targett Doherty
                                    Son Martial Grealish Richarlison
                                    Jiminez Rashford Aguero

                                    Patricio Zaha Guilbert Aurier

                                    This feels like a great chance to smash the average

                                      Dont free hit!!! Its good for double gw

                                        Free hit is probably the best chip in the game. Don't waste it on a gw where 2 teams blank

                                          if i think fh team smashes my current team then why not?

                                    Hi fellas, help me out with this bunch

                                    Guaita
                                    Lundstrom Maguire Aurier (Soy TAA)
                                    Alli Son Maddison Cantwell (Mane)
                                    Maupay Tammy Vardy

                                    Got 2 FT. Which move makes more sense?

                                    A) Maguire + Cantwell > Cahill + Grealish
                                    B) Mane > Grealish and roll 1FT
                                    C) Tammy + Mane > Rashford + Grealish

                                    If Maguire fails to deliver tomorrow will probably do A. Thoughts?

                                    2ft.
                                    Mane and Tomori to Alli and Doherty?
                                    WC gw 20 or would you rather WC now?
                                    Pulisic I also wanna get rid of sooner than later.

                                    Mount to:

                                    A) Grealish
                                    B) Richarlison

                                      A safe. B is risky but can turn up good too

                                    Team not great for next gw but got 2FT. First thoughts are Mount, Mousset/Connolly and TAA out?

                                    KDB Mount Alli Son
                                    Vardy Mousset
                                    (Martin, Connolly, Mane, TAA)

                                      Different approach to most, having 4 big mids and only 1 big forward. Mount to Grealish would be my move.

                                        Yup, doing me decent so far but tempted to bring in Kane or Rash if they do well today. Not sold on villa after today

                                      Bench is fine! Mount to Grealish looks good! Keep Mousset?

                                        Might keep due to next 2 fixtures tbh but most players got a difficult fixture this gw and quite sold on getting rid of TAA for 3/4 gws atleast

                                    Just need Rashford to score a hat trick, Alli and KDB to haul and Kelly to get a clean sheet and GW saved 🙂

                                      All very possible.

                                    Martial probably rising tonight and Pulisic dropping before the next game week. Should i...

                                    A. Pulisic -> Martial for exact
                                    B. Save FT and do Pulisic + someone -> Alli next week

                                        Cheers, yeah its prob the safest and at least that FPL disaster that is Pulisic didnt drop in price today!

                                      I like B but not maguire tbh. C could also be good but I have lots of money saved in Mane.

                                      Thoughts on mine above mate?

                                        Your team looks in decent shape if you want to hold LIV assets, Mount out and save second FT prob a good move. Wait til today's games finish and reassess.

                                      JWP, Puli to Son, Grealish?

                                        That would require a lot of money ITB!

                                        Why? He can do puli to Son and JWP and Grealish aren't too much difference

                                      KDB and Pulisic to Son and Richarlison. No point to bring in Salah for a hit when he's not even playing in GW18. If you still want him you can bring him in next week.

                                        Yeah Salah is more of a plan across 2 weeks. Just thinking if is worth doubling up with Mane or swap with him for a more differential approach.

                                    Hi guys, looking for some advice on some transfers for a 2 week punt (will WC before GW20). Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

                                    TAA, Chilwell, Lund, Lowton, Targett
                                    Salah, Alli, Madds, KDB, Cantwell
                                    Ings, Vardy, Rash

                                    0.2 ITB, 2FT

                                    a) Salah, Madds & Cantwell -> Son, Martial & Grealish (-4)
                                    b) Salah & Madds -> Son & Martial
                                    c) Salah & Cantwell -> Son & Grealish
                                    d) Salah & Lowton -> Son & Aurier
                                    e) Something else? Any other players I should be looking at?

                                    Thanks!

                                      Probably D because defence is your weak spot next week, with TAA blank and Lowton not nailed. With your current team you'd have to start Chilwell away to MCI, which is certainly not ideal.

                                        I think of all the matches I saw him play last year.

                                      wait till Sours play, unless you have no cash buffer

                                      Aurier could get injured or receive a red card and then you are in the schtuck
