Meet the Manager #21 – Darren Wiles

Over the last decade, Darren Wiles has quietly amassed one of the best ever Fantasy Premier League careers.

Since he started in 2009/10, he has finished in the top thousand places three times. In fact, only once has he finished a campaign poorly, in 2015/16, when Leicester City won the Premier League title.

With such a track record, he deservedly sits in seventh spot in Fantasy Football Scout’s Live Hall of Fame (at the point of the last update).

It’s an achievement he is modest about, rarely speaking in public about his FPL management, so we were fortunate that he made an exception for us.

This was his first ever Fantasy Premier League video and podcast appearance and his Twitter following is under 200. That may change after today, however.

During his chat with Joe, as part of the Meet the Manager series, Darren reveals the secrets to his success.

His search for value emerges as a key reason for a strong finish, with money spread out across a playing XI to ensure the whole team contributes to a good score. This means keeping the number of heavy hitters in attack to a minimum and seeking out high-impact, premium defenders to bring in points at both ends of the pitch.

Fixtures is another major driving force in his campaigns. This is most apparent when Darren talks about his current Gameweek 26 squad and its focus on players from teams with great upcoming fixture runs. This was achieved without using his second Wildcard and instead through careful studying of the fixtures over time.

Patience is often a virtue for Darren but his one bad season showed him that stubbornness can be a curse in FPL management. His reluctance to tap into Leicester’s stars early on cost him dearly that year.

But as with many Meet the Manager interviewees before, it is the lessons learned from poor campaigns that can make them even better managers.

The chat with Darren is available to view on Youtube in the embedded video below.

    Henderson
    TAA Stephens Egan
    Salah Mane KDB Grealish Traore
    Vardy Ings

    Button Soy Greenwood Lascelles

    0.7ITB.

    Want to get Jiminez in the next couple of weeks, any suggestions?

    Was thinking Vardy, Grealish -> Jimmy, Richarlison for GW28.

    Thanks guys.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      Don't lose Vardy in the week he plays Norwich

      1. wilson007
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        Alternatively, Hendo Grealish Greenwood -> Mccarthy Hayden Jimmy?

        That would leave me 0.0 in the bank though so may get priced out of that.

    2. NielsvanDelft
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      Vardy has some really good fixtures from gw28 - gw33. Mané and Greenwood to Jimmy and Richarlison an option?

      1. wilson007
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        Yeah although I like Mane as a differential at the moment. What do you think of my suggestion above?

    3. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      If you're gonna bin Vardy, do it this GW to get Jimenez's NOR in there.

      We have the exact same front 8 players (!) and I'm going KDB + Greenwood -> Barnes + Jimenez in 28.

      1. wilson007
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        So much value in KDB though, but otherwise thats not a bad move.

        1. FPLGraham
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          12 days, 8 hours ago

          True but only 10GWs left of the season from 28 onwards. Can't take the value with ya!

          Feel like he's *almost certain* not to play against Burnley in GW30 due to R Madrid game.

          So from 28 he'll have (IMO):
          28: blank
          29: Man Utd (a)
          30: blank (BUR)
          31: probable blank (FA Cup)

          1. wilson007
            12 days, 7 hours ago

            Yeah fair point! Still debatably the best player in the league though 😛

  2. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    12 days, 8 hours ago

    Darren Won’t

  3. Arteta
    • 4 Years
    12 days, 8 hours ago

    I would lie if I said I followed Ziyech's career closely. But whenever I saw him play over the last two years, he looked magic. I saw him as an ideal Özil replacement given available funds and state of the club. And t's beyond me why they didn't trigger the release clause last season.
    Now he's going to the club I can't stand. Just brilliant.
    Kinda reminds me of Hazard saga.

    1. Arteta
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      it's*

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      Can always get Grealish

      1. Arteta
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        That would be absolutely amazing! But how much will Aston Villa demand for him?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 8 hours ago

          Something like 60-70 I guess. According to transfermarkt, his current value is 35m.

      2. La Roja
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Grealish won’t go to a Mid table team

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 7 hours ago

          Then he will have to join some other league since top teams in this league wont sign him 😀

        2. ppv
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 6 hours ago

          If Jack leaves 150m. Much better than Pogba. Grealish far better than that clown

          1. Klip Klopp
            • 4 Years
            12 days, 6 hours ago

            Grealish is better than a world cup winner. bro what are you smoking? Can I have some lol

            1. Nailed Jesus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              12 days, 6 hours ago

              I'm pretty sure the one that plays football and carries a team is better. The other one...well...I don't even know what he does nowadays...

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      100 million easy

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        For Grealish

      2. Arteta
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        That's a big fat no then 😐

      3. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        Surely not

        1. tisza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 6 hours ago

          70m to most teams, 100m to Utd. Utd just love paying over the odds

      4. La Roja
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Steady on

        I reckon 70m max

    4. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      - Ziyech to Chelsea
      - Grealish to United
      - Maddison to Spurs
      - Some random Kia Joorabchian client to Arsenal

      Hello darkness, my old friend.

      1. HashAttack
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        for some reason I think Maddison would be a good fit for Everton

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          12 days, 7 hours ago

          Hands off! I think Madison would be a good fit for Leicester. 😀

    5. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      He can be great or can be new Dusan Tadic.
      Good on the eye with no end product.

  4. D.Glynn
    12 days, 8 hours ago

    How do these forward planning transfers sound? Just occupying time. Opinions appreciated.

    Ryan Soy Holgate and Grealish to Hendo Gomez C.Taylor and Barnes/Taoure.

    Would leave me with,
    Hendo 4.0
    TAA Gomez Lascelles C.Taylor Egan
    Salah KDB Son Barnes Cantwell
    Aubu Jimmy Ings

    1. wilson007
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Hendo has two blanks soon (cant play against Man U)

  5. FF Dirtbag
    • 8 Years
    12 days, 8 hours ago

    What would be your three players you would want from now until the end of the season? (taking out liverpool and man city players)

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      Not sure there is anyone with blanks and DGWs coming up - chopping and changing at the right time is the key.

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        But if I was just fixing them in for the rest of the season, couldn't change them, who would you go for?

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

          Usual suspects probably - Vardy, Auba, Son perhaps.

          1. FF Dirtbag
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 7 hours ago

            Yeah These were in my thoughts. Auba I am a bit unsure on.

    2. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      McCarthy, jimi, vardy.

    3. TheLord
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Jimenez Vardy Son

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Yes - a good choice.

    4. Al Moon Yeah
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 6 hours ago

      Till now and the end of the season? a fit Laporte, Abraham, probably Vardy

    5. Kip
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Vardy Jimenez Richarlison

  6. Super Jack Grealish
    • 7 Years
    12 days, 8 hours ago

    What to do with this then?

    Want to get address Mahrez, Kelly, Lundy and maybe DCL/Vardy > Ings

    McCarthy, McGovern
    TAA, Soyu, Lundy, Rico, Kelly
    Salah, KDB, Mahrez, Grealish, Hayden
    Aguero, Vardy, DCL

    2FT

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 8 hours ago

      I'd swap Lundy to SHU or NU defender and save the other transfer.

    2. TheLord
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Kelly -> Boly and Aguero -> Jimi?

  7. jason_ni
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    How is the hall of fame done, is it just for everyone who is registered on this site?
    What's a good ranking/rating

    1. XABI 15
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      not too sure tbh, but think its members only and based on historical rankings weighted back.

      Whats your current OR? and 5 year average?

    2. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      No idea how is calculated,didnt play first three seasons so will always have bad rank

  8. TheLord
    • 2 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    Which one would you go for?

    A) Son
    B) Richarlison

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Richarlison

    2. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Son

    3. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Son

    4. TheLord
      • 2 Years

      Thanks all!

  9. Malkmus
    • 8 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    A'noon all. Looking a bit ahead to gw28, have 2.5 itb, where to spend it?

    McCarthy
    TTA - Fernandez - Kelly - Kiko - (O'CONNELL)
    Salah - Maddison - KDB - Richarlison - Dendonk (KDB)
    Ings - DCL (AGUERO)

    A - Kelly to VVD
    B - Kelly to Wolves
    C - Other?

    Ta!

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      A

    2. HashAttack
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      KDB > Mane for me

    3. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Third liver, probably Mane

      1. Malkmus
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Thanks all

  10. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    Wolves players at risk of rotation next week? The Norwich game is sandwiched by their Europa League tie.

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Yeah and if not rotation, their performance will probably drop

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        It (EL) doesn't seem to have affected their performnce so far this season. The EL was the reason why I was so reluctant to get them in the first place.

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 7 hours ago

          From what I recall, they had a pretty average start. Could be wrong though... 😀

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Rest after winter break seems excessive

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        This is what I'm hoping. A good first leg result would be nice too.

  11. Gunner1290
    • 4 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    In which gameweek will the most teams feature in a double gameweek?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      37

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      34 or 37

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      GW37, GW34 may all have doubles but also blanks and there will be at least one other DGW if City, Arsenal or Sheff United make FA Cup semi's.

  12. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    Hi all

    Bit of a vague question I know, but who do you think will be be the must-have/key players to own over the DGW's?

    Triple City I guess, bit unsure beyond that.

    1. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      City are actually an odd one, as most of their players aren't gonna get near 120mins in a DGW, especially as Europe is their focus.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Hard to say until we know what the doubles are. I'd say a SHU defender or Henderson will be essential for their double. I'll probably triple up on City but outside of Ederson it's hard to say if any of them will actually play both games.

    3. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      All depends on fixtures, even triple city might not be required.

    4. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      I was thinking of Ederson, KDB and Aguero but expect some rotation, although they should play most games I would think (Ederson should play all).

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        If a clear pattern emerges regarding Pep's CL team someone could become a great option. For instance if it looks like Mahrez and Bernardo are preferred in CL that could make Sterling more assured of league minutes.

  13. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    Which one?

    A) Dendo > Traore
    B) Lund/Soy > Stephens

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Lundstram to Stephens

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Whats your thoughts on Lundstram this gw? Hold for one more, or go straight to Stephens?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 7 hours ago

          If you have 2FTs, go for it. Otherwise hold

      2. Jet5605
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Would you make that move for a hit?

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          12 days, 7 hours ago

          Nah both are for free

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      A

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 6 hours ago

        Was my initial thoughts to do this, seems the best move considering Wolves play Norwich.

  14. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    I was thinking of Ederson, KDB and Aguero but expect some rotation, although they should play most games I would think (all in Ederson's case).

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Please ignore (meant as reply to my own thread, ha).

  15. FOO FIGHTER
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    Any thoughts on Abraham? Dead asset or does anyone think he will start firing again?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      I think him and Mount can do well in those fixtures.

    2. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Getting him soon,hope he will fire again.

  16. Jet5605
    • 5 Years
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    Should I take a hit to improve my defence or roll with this in GW27 and hope Lundy does something or Williams starts for Utd?

    Guaita
    TAA / Webster / Lund
    Salah / Grealish / Mane / Traore
    Vardy / Jimi / Ings

    Button / Williams / Cantwell / Holgate     

  17. FOO FIGHTER
    12 days, 7 hours ago

    I am actually worried about not owning Mane. He has had a good rest even though he picked up an injury. The fixtures are bound to see him go wild...

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      He is dead to me.

    2. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Held on. Hoping for rewards, expecting another punch in the face.

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 6 hours ago

        This

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 7 hours ago

      Yeah, toying with this move...

      Kun+Mahrez >> Jimenez+Mané.

      Could also be Ings brought in.

  18. Holmes (specialist in failu…

      Bad news: Ndidi is not OK (Foxes fan)
      Good news: Adama is OK (FPL owner) and Ndidi is not OK (weakens Foxes defence)
      Such is the bizarre thinking of an FPL & footy fan.

        Do we think Adama play tomorrow?

          I damn well hope so - if my LIV trio are out I am down to the bare bones (with no captain) anyway.

    as a season long Salah owner and recent Mane owner (just before injury) I am quite excited at prospect of him having as a differential.

        Yeah, might just drop VVD and double up midfield.

          I can happily captain Salah for next couple and use Mane as a pick against the average

    Which GW28 blanker would you sell out of

    Aubayemang or KDB

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. XABI 15

      what price did you get KDB at?

      Depends who you want, and how much TV you've got tied up in KDB because you will probably want him back quickly.

      I'm probably selling both but if only one, then Aubameyang

    who to lose for gw28? and who should be the replacement?

    A- Lundstram (Have TAA, VVD, Soy and Fernandez)
    B- Grealish (Have Salah, KDB, Maddison and Cantwell)

    Jimmy & Jamie tomorrow. Hoping for a high scoring game. A Traore blank would be satisfying as well.

    Any Wolves fans on here? Seen it suggested that Saiss is not nailed. His minutes so far this season suggest otherwise...anyone able to cast any light on this?

    1. I Member

      Boly was injured. Saiss is competing with Dendoncker. Seems to be ahead of him at the moment.

          Think so.

  27. Woy_is_back

    Might switch double pool defence to make room for Mane? Anyone thinking about doing the same?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I have too many concerns to use two transfers to change my Liverpool triple up.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You think they will start smashing teams rather than grinding out clean sheet low scoring wins to see out the title?

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 6 hours ago

        You might be right

    3. MaticMVP

      My plan is to get Mane in for Kdb during gw29. Have him and Salah.

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Prefer having TAA Salah and Firmino combo

      I think whatever you have stick to it

    anyone thinking of getting rid of De Bruyne?

    1. kamdaraji
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 6 hours ago

      KBD>Mane a good move?

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years
        12 days, 6 hours ago

        could also do dendoncker>Mane but want to upgrade DCL to Vardy in GW28 and getting Mane in for KDB instead of Donkey allows me to do that without taking a hit in GW28

        1. kamdaraji
          • 10 Years
          12 days, 6 hours ago

          Also getting in Mane for Dendoncker doesn't give me much flexibility regarding transfers

    2. Rupert The Horse

      What’s the point?

    Since I brought in DCL at GW22, I have been planning to ditch him for Jimenez before GW27 but now I am not so sure. What would you do?

    A) DCL + Martial > Jimenez + Mount/Traore
    B) Roll the FT and wait one MORE week!

    1. I Member

      I would get Jimenez for Norwich. Don't think Martial to Mount/Traore is worth a -4 though.

      1. Runaway
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        That's the point, if it was for free I would not think twice but need to take that -4 to fund it 🙁

    How does this team look?

    Pope McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Egan Stephens Lascelles
    Salah KDB Fernandes Grealish Cantwell
    Vardy Jimenez Ings

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Traoré over Grealish and spend on Lascelles to Fernández otherwise looks good- Fernandes risky but could pay off
