How to use the top 10,000 ownership figures to increase your FPL rank

Ownership is often discussed within the Fantasy Premier League community.

Is a player so highly owned that it’s a risk to sell? Does a player have low enough ownership to consider them as a true differential? These are just some of the conversations FPL managers will have over 38 Gameweeks.

A lot of the time FPL managers will look for differentials under 10% ownership, or preferably under 5% ownership, but I think a player can have 30-40% ownership and still be considered a differential.

At that level of ownership, every six or seven managers out of 10 don’t own that player – that’s still big in my books, especially if the player mentioned is a reliable heavy hitter. When you factor in captaincy, you could be onto a winner.

In this article, I’m going to look at the top 10,000 ownership levels from Live FPL to see if we can determine who might be some of the best differentials going into the final two Gameweeks of the season.

I’m using top 10,000 ownership is I think that’s a better indicator at this stage of the season of active FPL manager ownership than overall ownership, which may include some teams that are no longer active.

Additionally, it’s where a lot of people are striving to finish by the end of the season.

It’s also worth noting that these ownership levels are taken from Gameweek 36+. Any transfers before Gameweek 37+ won’t be included so it’s possible that ownership levels could be higher or lower, especially if a player has performed well, or poorly in the recent Gameweek, and of course dependent on upcoming fixtures. But either way, it’s still a good indicator.

Lets take a look at some of the most popular teams first.

      What’s your most memorable fpl midfield?
      I think mine was a few years ago and was:

      Sanchez | Hazard | Firmino | King | Mahrez

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        17 days, 3 hours ago

        I think* Mahrez was my 5th mid anyway

          In my very short FPL career, probably this last year:

          Sterling, Mane, Jota, Tielemans (when he had his run of form at the end of the season), Fraser

            • 3 Years
            17 days, 3 hours ago

            Yeah that is nice, always nice when there a variety of forward playing midfield cheapish gems

        17 days, 3 hours ago

        I’m really tempted to go all out and get players like Stanislaw, Zaha, Grealish, Sarr. Then Kane and Auba up top

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          17 days, 3 hours ago

          *Stanislas

            17 days, 3 hours ago

            Lethal!
            Grealish vs West Ham could be playing to keep Villa up, playing for a transfer, who knows?

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 3 Years
              17 days, 3 hours ago

              Yeah, just annoying there are too many performing mids to take out though!
