Almost 10% of the top 10k FPL managers fail to use their first Wildcard

We take our regular look at the chip usage and player selections of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers.

This is our first article in the series since the deadline for using the first Wildcard passed.

Remarkably, almost one in ten of the top 10,000 FPL bosses (at the point of the Gameweek 21 deadline) didn’t use the first of their two permitted Wildcards.

World number four Michael Somers is among that number.

It’d be interesting to know why so many didn’t deploy it. Lack of a need to because of a hugely successful first half of the season? Or blissful ignorance of the rules?

Given some of the stats we have seen already on the make-up of the top 10k managers in 2019/20, it may be more the latter.

Since the deadline for Gameweek 20 passed, 2.34% have used their second Wildcard.

Around one in five have already deployed their Bench Boost this season and there is a similar usage of the Triple Captain chip, too.

Approximately one in six of the top 10k have used their Free Hit over the last five months or so.

Discounting the first Wildcard, 61.7% of the top 10,000 managers have yet to use any of their chips.

Around 15% have used at least two of their chips, however.

Approximately 50 of the top 10,000 managers have already maxed out their allocation, including the second Wildcard.

For those who have used their second Wildcard, there are some familiar names in the ‘template’ squad.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) is the most-owned player in these Wildcard sides, sitting in 93.16% of the teams in question.

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m), Sadio Mane (£12.3m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) and John Lundstram (£5.1m) were also widely selected.

There was a lack of consensus between the posts, however: two of the three least-owned players in the template squad below are goalkeepers.

There are four differences from the Wildcard ‘template’ to the most-owned squad in the top 10k overall.

Raul Jimenez (£7.5m), Anthony Martial (£7.9m), Adama Traore (£5.6m) and Mathew Ryan (£4.8m) are the differentials of sort in the above graphic, while Nick Pope (£4.7m), Dele Alli (£8.8m), James Maddison (£7.7m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) are the alternatives below.

Just over half of the top 10k captained the sidelined Vardy in Gameweek 21, although there would have been some Mane or Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) vice-captainers amongst that select group who emerged with a 16 or 20-point haul.

Looking in greater detail at the main candidates for the armband in the top 10k below, Salah was the only one who hit a double-digit haul.

As for how the top 10k are set up for Double Gameweek 24, the ownerships for a selection of the various Liverpool double-up and triple-up combinations are currently as follows:

CombinationOwnership
Salah + Mane5.82%
Salah + Alexander-Arnold13.3%
Salah + Robertson1.71%
Mane + Alexander-Arnold58.75%
Mane + Robertson9.54%
Salah + Mane + Alexander-Arnold3.9%
Salah + Mane + Robertson0.19%
Salah + Robertson + Alexander-Arnold0.89%
Mane + Robertson + Alexander-Arnold4.86%

The Mane and Alexander-Arnold combination is by some distance the most popular double-up, while relatively few FPL managers in the top 10k have already lumped on three Liverpool assets (there are other combinations beyond the above, of course).

We’ll surely see those figures rise considerably ahead of Gameweek 24, however.

    Best West Ham players to have for GW24?

        Antonio, if he's fit. Check gw 23 to see if he plays

          I do love Fabianski. However, I think he's so last decade.

            He’s already the joint 3rd highest scoring GK of THIS decade though

            And has DGW to come 🙂

              OK - good luck. Could be a double drubbing followed by Man City & Liverpool. But each to their own.

        I think Noble may be a good differential

        Hendo
        TAA Soy Lundy Rico Kelly
        Mane KDB Maddison Alli Dendo
        Vardy Rashford Jimi

        2 FT and 0 itb
        GW 22: Alli to Richarlison for one week punt just to burn 1 FT
        GW 23: Rash to DCL and carry 1 FT
        GW 24: Jimi + Richarlison to Salah + Ings for free before DGW

        Is this plan right?

        1. Lindelol
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          That involves DCL and Richarlison double up in GW 23 though

        2. Lindelol

          Looks like a plan but I'd prefer to have Jimi not Rash

      • TANGUY TUESDAYS
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Hi guys, would appreciate your help with my team:

          Guita - McGovern
          Soy - TAA - Lundy - Rico - Kelly
          Salah - Alli - KDB - Madders - Dendo
          Abraham - Jimi - Vardy

          2ft + 2.0m itb

          A) Alli -> Richarlison (This would leave 2.6 itb for future transfers)
          B) Alli + Abraham -> Mane + DCL
          C) Other

          Option A has benefit of possibly swapping a defender to VVD, but Liverpool have two tricky fixtures coming up. Again it's a toss up between Double Liverpool attack or midfield.
          Thanks for your help.

            Looks similar to all the other 343s we see.

            How will Spurs and Alli do without Kane?

            Do like that B team

          Thoughts on this WC draft folks?

          Fabianski
          TAA Sidibe Lundstram
          Salah Mane Richarlison Martial Maddison
          Vardy DCL

          Button Ayew Dunk C.Taylor

          1. HollywoodXI

            Nice. I’d prefer Ings, Grealish and Soyuncu over DCL, Martial and Sidibe but that’s just personal preference.

            Salah signed for Spurs and playing against his old club!

            To be serious I'd go Salah

          How is this looking for the long-term. Appreciate Ramsdale is a bit of a punt, but happy to stick with him for a few GWs:

          Ramsdale
          TAA - Soyuncu - Lundstram - Robertson
          Mane - Maddison - KDB - Alli
          Ings - Vardy

          Button - Kelly - Cantwell - Greenwood

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I'd rather have 2 attacking Liverpool players than 2 in defence, and would sacrfiice Alli to get this

              So Alli to Salah and Robertson down to a £4.5m?

            • 2 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Looking good, but be ready to ship Alli. Personally think of Alli-> martial/Richarlison

          3. Lord Bendtner
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Looks OK but would rather have Mane / Salah / TAA combo.

            Would drop Soyuncu for cheaper alternative and invest more into a stronger third choice striker like DCL.

            Liverpool are streaky when it comes to defence. Otherwise, pretty solid team overall.

          4. HollywoodXI
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Robbo to a 4.5 def and Alli to Salah. We then have the exact same team all bar the GK.

          What do you guys think is the best use of the next 3 ft & accommodating a Liv player?

          1. Getting Salah as a 3rd player
          a) Alli Grealish Jiménez-> Salah Dendo DCL and play 3-4-3
          b) Rico Alli Jimenez -> 3.9 Salah Greenwood and play 3-5-2

          2. Getting a def as a 3rd player
          a) Alli Grealish Rico -> Richarlison Dendo Robbo
          b) Grealish Rico -> Dendo VVD
          c) Alli Rico -> Richarlison Gomez

          Looking ahead to gw24 & the triple captaincy.

          If Mane turned up & played 60 minutes twice without a booking he'd have outscored two of previous triple captain's (Carroll - 3 points, Salah - 2 points)

          Think I'm going to deploy it on him. It surely can't be any worse than previously 🙂 My most successful was Aguero with 9 🙂

            Saw someone post yesterday about playing it on TAA due to being more nailed to play 90 x 2 and has both consistent and explosive potential....i quite like this idea.

            Last season i did Sane TC.
            3 points for that.
            I still remember Sanchez 72 points haul though. 😮

            No pressure Mane .....

                    Excellent, I would see them annually in late 90's . They always finished off the "other stage" on a Sunday, Glastonbury.

                      Yes, but they could lose vs Eve , (particularly if everyone on note gets rested, as seems to be the consensus here)
                      Then, when does he get games.
                      He's already been priced , 6.5m , I think.

                          Perhaps scaremongering, but what chances are there of Minamino taking minutes off of Salah-Mane in the double?

                          I assume he'll just be given a bench role for the coming months

                          1. potatoace'scott talent

                            Can see him getting some mins that dgw. He might take mins off Salah. Unless salah goes top and firm gets subbed.

                            Not scaremongering at all. See how he does in coming games. Big stepup from Austrian League and a few Champions League games.

                          Is it worth two transfers to have Sterling for a week or two before hopping on Salah?

                          I guess not?

                          If you were on WC now (I'm not!), what would be your chosen formation?

                          I ask because I've got 2FT and I'm seriously considering a formation change from 3-5-2 over to 3-4-3 - effectively swapping Grealish for Jiminez (with Connolly out and Dendonker in).

                            Im 0.1 short to get Jimenez and Salah. Not so keen on Ings or DCL. Should I downgrade Kelly to 4.2 defender to avoid Jimenez?

                            A) Kane and Alli to Ings/DCL and Salah for free
                            B) Kane, Alli and Kelly to Jimenez, Salah and 4.2 def for a -4.

                              McCarthy and cash looks nice

                                I’m a Saints season ticket holder and have just transferred in McCarthy on my WC. The defence has really improved over the last few games.

                            Hayden playing as a defender for Newcastle today? - or is there something wrong with the lineup I'm looking at?

                                Hope it is only temporary and he will be back at his normal position for PL - I need him to get me a rare assist from the bench...

                            DCL or Maupay for upcoming run?

                              Got Maupay but planning to swap over

                              Maupay has Villa and Bournemouth after Everton worth keeping for at least Villa

                            Already have the Pool trio with Salah, Mane & Gomez. Given they have had 5 CS since Gomez got in the team, what is the likelihood of him keeping his place when Lovren is fit?

                              Rotation if all fit, Klopp indicated that. Not only at the back.

                                Where and when did klopp indicate that?

                                  Not explicitly, but he concerns about their fixtures and only have 12 senior players. So my interpretation is that if all fit he will manage cautiously.

                                    Not at centre back he won't.
                                    Vast majority of rotations will be the midfield three.

                              100%. Klopp generally doesn't change his CB pairing unless someone gets injured.

                                        That is possible although they will both get tips from the bench, while young Gomez does the job

                                        Think I'm set on B but any insight appreciated thanks.

                                                Mou spurs will give another go when they meet City soon. Expect them to eventually solid defensively

                                            Grealish>Traoré
                                            Abraham>Auba

                                                Only other option to get Auba is Kdb>Son

                                                  Don't do either. Grealish is gold. Abraham also great for his price.
