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.

    Salah or Mane?

    1. Hot Toddy

      Salah

    2. Holmes

      Worth a FT to make the switch lads?

      1. Sicaholic
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        I would say not smth to think about now. Consider after gw18. Someone may get an injury, form player can change etc

    4. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      The one who scored recently, that’s how it works isn’t it? Until Mane outshines him again, then it’s Mane.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Neither. They have a blank and then Leicester.

    6. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      None for now.
      Blank in gw18, LEI away in gw19.

    7. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Mane

    8. FPLGraham

      Pick one, stick with it.

      Mane hauled vs Everton + Palace then was Salah’s turn last two weeks.

      Marginal offside call away from Mane outscoring Salah yest. No need to kneejerk

          In 9 years of FPL I’ve never had the problem of not being able to use my transfers but for some reason this year I just can’t get rid of them. It feels wrong. Is anyone else having this problem? Any guesses to why? Cheers DZ

            You are taking this stuff seriously? FOMO?

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 2 days ago

              Lack of options could be another reason.

              Personally struggling to make transfers due to this

            Pulisic was signed to fulfill the role of Hazard ....

            In FPL 😛

              Barely half the player Haz is imho

              7 months, 2 days ago

              He just disappears and you won't even realise. Its really tough to spot him for some reason and whenever I think its him in the box, the player turns out to be either Mount or Azpi... *facepalm*

              1. Amey

            2ft's + WC next GW almost certainly.
            What would you do? Looking at 1 week punts.

            Henderson.
            Robbo, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Kelly.
            Pulisic, Mane, KDB, Salah.
            Abraham, Vardy.
            Button, Cantwell, Williams, Wickham.
            2ft. 0.4m ITB..

            Tielemans and Tomori > Grealish and Maguire for -4 then WC after GW19?

              WC now... It's a super obvious spot to do it.

              1. Tube!!
                • 6 Years
                7 months, 2 days ago

                Why now and not after 19??

                  7 months, 2 days ago

                  Because what does 19 do for you? You're taking a hit now, you might as well do it now, prevent the hit, roll the transfer 19 and make a few switches in 20.

                    Was thinking it gets Lei v Liv out of the way.

                      7 months, 2 days ago

                      It's not worth it because you only have 48 hours to WC. Not enough time to plan and react.

                      1. FirMinaMiMo
                          7 months, 2 days ago

                          It means we should not consider abut lei vs liv ....right???

                            It's one game. Anything can happen. It'll be high scoring.

                        sterling 5th yellow tomorrow would help my decision!

                      1FT & 1.5 ITB - Worth a hit to get Rash?

                      Guaita
                      Aurier, Rico, Lundy
                      KDB, Alli, Maddison, Pulishit
                      Vardy, Mousset, Connolly
                      (Hennessy, TAA, Robbo, Salah)

                      KDB, Connolly > Rash, Grealish -4?
                      Pulishit, Mousset > Rash, Cantwell-4?

                        Not sure about both the moves you suggested.
                        One thing for sure though that your strikers are way too weak.

                        1. Amey

                          Rashford Ings Jimenez all doing decent job atm.

                        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

                          Yeah hence the Rashford in move

                          I’m ok with a nice 4-4-2 though - Tammy all of a sudden is now cold property, Ings is in totally uncharted territory (pretty sure he’s never played this many consecutive league games in his career without an injury),

                          Jimmy has spurs, Man City, Liverpool in his next 5, with the other 2 fixtures away to Norwich & Watford... I watched both Watford & norwich’s 90 mins yesterday & they are anything but whipping boys now, both look to have turned corners

                          So not in a MASSIVE panic to get 3 strikers, but it would be nice allright

                            B is the move then.

                              Yep leaning that way allright cheers

                              Will see how things go today, probably will do early as no midweek games

                              Want to beat Rash’s rise & Pulishit’s fall (and inevitable benching/1 point cameo vs spurs)

                                Ha ha
                                One of the worst signing for me alongside Salah second run in my team and CHO

                        7 months, 2 days ago

                        Salah and Robbo out.

                        They have blank and then Leicester. Just get rid. You can make up real ground here. Save the transfer in 19 and then bring them back in 20 maybe.

                          Sorry don’t like those moves at all - WOL, SHU are way too juicy to start booking transfers to move elite players out then straight back in 🙂

                          Mo has just put up 58 points for me in 7 days - he’s back 😉

                          Correct

                          Although now that you say it...

                          Salah, Connolly > Kane, Grealish with Kane (c) GW18 & GW19 is interesting

                          It means no Rashford for another few weeks, and need to book GW19’s transfer to get Salah back in for GW20

                          But Kane at Christmas, and with those two home fixtures + the armband, it might just have legs... let’s see Kane today

                          Food for thought, cheers Camzy

                            Divided by the countries, United by the hate for Pulisic 😀

                              😀

                              Hopefully Kevin doesn't qualify for hate list 😛

                                Fingers crossed 😉

                          A decent haul against Arsenal and KDB can't be sold imo. Pulisic really has to go asap so probably option 2 imo.

                          Hard call I am looking at losing Ings for a hit to get Rashford but Ings could have a hat trick today and the fixture this week is ok.
                          Bad fixtures after that to be fair.
                          I probably rather A on balance but I am very reluctant to lose KDB myself

                          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            7 months, 2 days ago

                            The thing with KDB out, as hard as it is to do, is that it really helps “team structure” if there is such a thing

                            Option B leaves my default formation as 442, which is still fine as Lundstram, TAA, Robbo & Aurier are all basically mids... but KDB out allows Lundy first sub for his tricky upcoming run, and a midprice striker/midfielder in a 343 instead

                            Need to see how KDB goes today, a blank, and he’s potentially onnthe chopping block I’m afraid - but then again don’t want pulishit in my team a minute longer either

                              Yeah got to watch KDB today and make a call.
                              I am now looking at
                              KDB and Tielmans to Alli and Martial for -4 🙂

                        Unlike most, I’ll have a bit of a benching headache next week! Who to bench here? Have I got it right? Targett and Cantwell could score well..

                        Ryan
                        Lundstram - Rico - Aurier
                        Son - KDB - Maddison - Zaha
                        Auba - Vardy - Jimenez

                        Adrian* - Cantwell - Targett - TAA*

                          Looks good, maybe grelish for zaha

                          Who to lose for Rashford:
                          Tammy or Jim?

                            7 months, 2 days ago

                            Wheels look to have come off Chelsea

                            Wolves have City, pool, spurs in their next 5 plus away to resurgent Norwich & Watford the other two

                            Still very tricky players to sell mind you

                            Possibly Jimmy as he is less prone to hauling & more prone to ticking but it could still bite

                            Lets see how Jimenez perform. As of now, Abraham but he has slightly better fixtures.

                          TAA and Ings to
                          Targett and Rashford and put C on Rashford worth a -4?
                          Or is something like Tielmans to Alli a better idea with TAA to about 4.9.
                          Also considered TAA out and Tielemans to Martial which would leave more cash for an Ings upgrade on 19.
                          I have more value to lose on Robbo - was late gettning TAA

                          Current team with C on Son below

                            Selling Ings us a bad move.

                              Yeah I watched today he is really on it. Tielmans has been a disaster and probably deserves to go.
                              If it was not not value loss I might go more radical and go
                              KDB and Abraham to
                              Rashford and Alli

                          Didn't expect Chelsea to come unstuck so quickly. Always knew the young squad wouldn't be able to cope with the amount of games but thought we'd be further into the the festive period before they got found out.

                              Yeah absolutely, especially with the attacking intent we've seen from Spurs under Mourinho. That said I really do rate Lamps and the Chelsea project under him is extremely promising.

                            Went Richarlison -> Pulisic after GW13. Absolute shocker but fixs + form were there for Puli.

                            Prob my worst move of the season given how Richy’s done since then!

                            Got to sell this week I think.

                            Looks like a 3-2 or 4-2 derby game to me.

                          Taking a break from early team news, if my news has helped you over the last few months that’s what it was all about, but can’t continue at this level so have to step back as there is risk involved, hope you understand, see you around.

                          Think I'm going to do Mane > Alli for the next stretch of 4-5 fixtures.

                          Alli should outscore Mane 4 games vs 3.

                            Would you do it for Hit this gw & play Alli instead of Dendonker ?

                            And hitting WC after gw 19 will be a rightfull one....

                            If we tap wc at gw20 means ....we can drag that team till gw 25-30 ... especially liverpool except (vs tot nd man u) we can drag that players till gw 31 juicy fixtures ✌

                            Worst case if we go for wc this week means
                            1)can yu say friends any worthy mids ????
                            2) at gw 19 again we have to select pool players !!!!!

                            Honestly don't write Sheffield off from 4th spot this season.

                            Chelsea have too many games and too young a squad
                            Same story with United, there is no depth in the squad
                            As an Arsenal supporter all I can say is lol

                            Wolves have been impressive lately but again, do they have the squad depth to keep competing in Europe and the League? I'm not at all convinced.

                              Spurs is gonna take the 4th spot imo...Mou at the wheel

                                somehow forgot about them...they're looking good. The defence needs to be sorted out though and we haven't seen evidence of that just yet.

                                  7 months, 2 days ago

                                  Mo will take care of the defense...they have already reduced the shots on targets and big chances conceded

                                3rd spot

                              I know Leicester have had a good start and look good overall..but their top 3 place is far from locked in with more than half the season to go..expect Spurs to give them a decent run for that

                                I've been talking up Leicester since the start of the season, even had a Leicester fan on here disagreeing with how much I was talking them up. I have them well and truly locked in top 3 myself. Will challenge City for second

                            Is there any better C than sterling? May swap salah to sterling

                              Vardy away to City’s high line with a 35yo aging DM at the heart of it, partnered by either a catastrophic Otamendi, or an unsure Stones, and flanked by two dodgy fullbacks in either Angelino, Mendy or Walker...

                              Sterling is a bit of a different player this season, he’s playing out beside Pep on the wing for large periods of time

                                Amen. Vardy or Son for captain IMO.

                                I don't think leicester can do something big there. But city is going to give a powerful performance to prove themselves

                                  And by the way, vardy has blanked big games this season. City is strongest and away.

                                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

                                    7 months, 2 days ago

                                    He’s went 2-2-2-2 from spurs Liverpool Utd Chelsea

                                    Then he’s got 125 points in the other 13

                                    The thing is - Walker, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Angelino is not a Man City level backline, it’s mid table at best

                                    And city don’t know how to sit back and park a bus - they will pllay a high line and try to pin Leicester back, which will play right into Vardys strengths with his (and Leicester’s) pace on the break

                                    He’ll definitely get some chances, just a question of whether he takes them

                                    I find Sterling an odd pick, though he could do well

                              3. Klein

                                Sterling vs lei. No way

                            2. FOO FIGHTER
                                7 months, 2 days ago

                                53 points here with Guaita Son and Rashford to go.

                                Should have capped Salah but anyway.

                                My cup opponent only has 25 points also capped Vardy and has Kelly Son KDB and Jimmy to go. Going to be tight.

                                  Not hugely feeling the Grealish love myself... feel like he has to do it all himself at the Villa.

                                    I sort of agree but honestly SOT/NOT/wat is just very hard to ignore.

                                      True plus he’s 100% nailed which is great over this period compared to the guy I’d be replacing with him (Pulisic) but as someone else has said, Norwich + Watford not quite whipping boys any more.

                                    Havent got him in because its disrupting the current team and wud be wasting transfers to get back the current setup again - and hoping for his blanks in next few gws

                                    How nuts is KDB and Tielmans
                                    To Ali and Martial for -4
                                    Would give me the Son and Ali double up, they could do ok this week and plain sailing fixtures after that.
                                    And leave 3 pool sit on the bench rather than move at least one this week?
                                    I don’t actually mind the moves it’s more the fear of KDB coming back to form and the TV value loss on KDB.
