Heavy backing for Salah among emerging top 10k FPL managers

A quarter of Fantasy Premier League managers have already deployed their first Wildcard of the season.

And there is similar usage for that chip among the emerging top 10,000 in the overall rankings.

After the first four Gameweeks, 25.4% of managers worldwide have used their Wildcard to get a new squad, 6.2% of those doing so ahead of Gameweek 4.

Unsurprisingly, the Wildcard is the most fashionable of the chips thus far, with the Triple Captain (10.2%), Free Hit (6.1%) and Bench Boost (4.4%) less so.

These statistics arguably highlight just how much goes on outside the Fantasy Football “bubble” that we are sometimes guilty of reading too much into.

Wildcards have been hotly debated on these pages, and in the Twittersphere, for some weeks now. And yet, it is perhaps refreshing for those still holding onto that chip that they are still in the vast majority. 

The same is even true inside the current top 10k, as early as the season is.

As you can see, just 25.1% of managers at this level have pulled the trigger on the first Wildcard. 6% of those did so for the most recent round of action.

But there are still plenty of mitigating factors forming part of the top 10k at this stage of the campaign, which is evident from the chip usage outside of the Wildcard.

21.1% of these managers have already made use of the Triple Captain, 8% the Free Hit and 7.5% the Bench Boost. Each of those respective totals is somewhat higher than the corresponding usage at an overall level.

Still, we should not take too much away from the managers inside the top 10k after the first four Gameweeks on account of the chips.

As you can see from the table above, more than half of those who began the campaign well have done so without the help of any chips.

And no more than 30.5% made a fast start through the use of one.

These managers are mostly relying on Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) for Gameweek 4, 37.5% of the top 10k captaining him for Sunday’s trip to Aston Villa.

The Egyptian scored four goals on the road last season but was joint-top among Liverpool players for assists away from home (six).

Despite the captaincy debate proving a hotly contested one this week, and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) edging the FFS poll (21.4% to 17.8%), Salah has commanded a considerable majority of armbands among the top 10k.

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) is the second-most-popular captain at this level for Gameweek 4 but his backing of 11.7% is still 25.8 percentage points lower than Salah.

De Bruyne was not far behind the Leicester man, but his 11.7% backing for the captaincy in the top 10k were left bitterly disappointed with a second successive blank in Manchester City’s 1-1 draw at Leeds.

The 7.7% of top 10k managers who went for the in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m) were rewarded accordingly, as he netted in Everton’s Gameweek 4 hosting of Brighton.

Even though Spurs face an unpredictable big-six clash with Manchester United, 5.2% of the top 10k have captained Harry Kane (£10.5m), who has averaged seven points per game thus far.

The early top 10k template makes for interesting reading, most notable how fractured midfield is at this level.

Salah is comfortable the most popular asset in that position, owned by 73.7% of managers, but that is 39.8 percentage points more than the second-most-fashionable.

James Rodríguez (£7.7m), who registered another home double-figure haul against Brighton, is that man, but he hardly has much clearance from De Bruyne and Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m).

Meanwhile, it is intriguing to note that, despite confusion over his fitness situation, 19% have held onto Son Heung-min (£9.0m) ahead of Gameweek 4 and the international break.

The fact that Liverpool have just one clean sheet in three matches so far has not stemmed interest in their defence.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) are three of the most popular in their position, while Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) remains the most fashionable in his price bracket.

    KDB will be at his usual best by the time City has a CF available

    1. Fudgy

      I'm just going to leave my captain on him like a total noob idc anymore.

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Capd him today.

      Ended up with 40 points tonight, so could have gone worse. But could have gone a lot better too.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Should have done better and had a pen

    3. AYLD28

      He performs in the big games because pep plays him further forward

  2. james 101
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    My current defenders are

    Saiis Digne James Justin Mitchell

    3.1m for upgrades

    I want to bring in TAA / Robbo

    So how would you do this.

    1. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Take out Digne

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        For TAA?

      2. james 101
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Not non-playing James?

        1. George Agdgdgwngo
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Take out justin

      3. F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        uh taking out the only defender that is 100% nailed when you have 4 potential rotation/outright losing their spot risks doesn't seem ideal.

  3. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Podence to Hamez worth -4?

    1. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      That didnt last long

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I'm turning into casual I know

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          The thing is that I'm not exactly set on wildcarding and would like to wait and have more time to think about it. My WC would probably consist of DCL and Rodriguez and I would prefer to get them now for cheaper if I'm going to end up wit then anyways. I will probably do Werner to DCL anyways so thinking if Podence to Rodriguez is worth it in case I decide I'm not Wildcarding after all.

    2. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Ask again tomorrow when Podence hauls

      1. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        And let us know the other part of the deal, it's very important

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    1. AYLD28
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Very kneejerk

      But I like Maupay

  5. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Have 2FTs, should I do Werner -> DCL now and wait on the other FT later?

    McCarthy
    TAA - Justin - Davies
    Salah - Kdb - Bruno - Podence
    Werner - Wilson - Adams

    1. Abaddon
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Would find a way to get Adams out

    4. Pedersen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Maupay for now. Wilson in the long run. Brighton have surprisingly looked strong in atk

      1. Pedersen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        And onnpens

      2. golden skulltula 69
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Wilson would be nice after GW10 I think..

    5. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Between Maupay and Bamford. One is playing in a better team but the other is playing for a good team and also he is on pens. So probably Maupay

      I so regret doing Wood over Maupay on wc
      I’d choose him or Wilson right now

      1. golden skulltula 69
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Could you use your FT to bring Maupay in?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          For sure. Have 2FT but will wait post IB. Can afford the 0.1 still if he rises

          1. golden skulltula 69

        1 month, 21 days ago

        probably not KDB but foden yes i think. foden and werner out for free could give me some nice options

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Foden was their best player today

      1. Steve The Spud

        Serious ? He was ghastly

          • 7 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Watch it back, if sterling or mahrez passed the ball he’d have a ht, xGA in the second half was outstanding

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        He was bloody awful

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Seriously; he was unmarked free on goal 3 times in first 60 min.. nobody in that team passes. Sterling and mahrez will never win anything starting together

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Werner out until he plays striker

    Mye team is great. Bit struggling with captaincy. Usually just pick the pool Leader. A bit lazy, I know. How do you pick your captains? Any advice om how to be more sucessfull in this rather important aspect to the game ?

    • 3 Years

    So, this guy Werner... Wait and see how they play with Ziyech and Pulisic?

    Feel like both Ings and Wilson have som trickier fixtures coming up. Not sold on Jimenez either right now after last Wolves-performance.

    Fron line of Maupay, DCL and Werner. What would you do?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If you’ve kept him till now then have to see how they do with the first team out.

      1. Willmissudimitrypayet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yeah, thanks. Have faith in him getting off the mark soon, but got to say these cheap lads with pennos look interesting.

        Have had other fires to put out, so now is the time where I have to consider a move for like Wilson and Zaha/Barnes/Grealish for Werner and Oli Burke.

  14. Tony Martial

    Which one?

    Mahrez and Podence ➡️Trossard and Periera for free

    What about WC that team? Would probably redshift mid and def.

    McCarthy
    TAA/Justin/Vinagre
    Salah/KDB/Bruno/Foden/Podence
    Jim/DCL

    Steer/Brewster/Bavies/Mitchell

    1. FC Hakkebøf

      Vinagre?????

    2. FPL_trail_runner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Mccarthy to Meslier
      Justin to Dallas
      Vinagre to Robbo
      KDB to sterling
      Bruno to Barnes
      Foden to Hamez
      Podence to 4.5
      B davies to Saiss/Chiwell

  16. Van der Faart

    Took Wilson and Werner out for Jimenez and DCL. Was looking ok earlier. Need a major haul from Jimi tomorrow.

    1. ktk_interista
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Identical moves here. I'll take a goal and max baps from Jimi.

    2. Maneonthemap

      Same mate, mine for a hit as well!! Still back the decision with how bad Newcastle were looking, will pay off over next few

  17. LucasMoregametime
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Pickford (ryan)
      James, VVD, Saiss, justin, Mitchell
      KDB, Hamez, Zaha, Podence, 4.5
      Werner, Kane, Jimi
      2FT 0.9 in bank
      Werner to Brewster, 4.5 to son??? Can hold James until when/if he drops and sort that out then for A -4

      1. Bushwhacker

        Pickford. Seriously?

    • slavkob
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Gone -12 for this gw; Dallas, Son and Wickham to Semedo, Trossard and DCL

      Just hoping it doesn't turn into a disaster..

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        -12 is a disaster

        1. slavkob
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Wildcarding this early is a greater disaster

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Wildcarding with the IB and transfer window closing makes perfect sense. -12 never makes any sense.

        Terrible.

        Dallas is someone i will shortly be buying

        Son is an excellent captain opton next week

        1. Wild Rover
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          The moves are not good. The comments regarding early WC or taking a -12 are worse

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Early wc Im big fan of (did it myself to great effect in week 2)

            -12 is never worth it unless its a DGW for liverpool and City and your turning Dale stephens Reed , Alzate and Wickham into KDB Salah Mane and Aguero

      Last pieces of the puzzle (wildcard)

      A) Kane + Hames
      B) Jimenez + Son
      C) Mitrovic + Sterling

      1. Van der Faart
        • 8 Years

        A

    • thehodge
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I don’t know why but I’m going to give Werner one last chance. Watching the game today was so frustrating as an owner but it’s so strange the Chelsea players literally don’t look interested in involving him

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Not when he’s playing as a winger

      2. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Removing him now means you think he will never score again in his league career.

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          More likely to score when no Abraham/Giroud starting.

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 21 days ago

            That could potentially be next game with Pulisic starting and in the future definitely with Ziyech taking the rw spot.

              • 11 Years

              Could also just get benched.

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 21 days ago

                It's possible for sure. I'll just hold and pray I get lucky.

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Ziyech and Pulisic starting with him is worth waiting for if you’ve kept him till now.

        1. thehodge
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          It’s not logical to remove him now though when I’ve stuck with him till this point.. Southampton next. I’ll most likely look to either bring in Chilwell or get rid of Wood for next week

          Yeah unfortunately. Didn't want to use WC and this season want to cut down on hits and see how it goes.

          Fails 2moro and he may go but I have Werner and Martial too and only 2fts so.....

            High on list of comments I thought I’d never read

    • Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I'm holding Werner. Don't care if he drops to 1.0, I'm going down with this ship.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        When will he play striker?

        1. Fudgy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Next game with the return of Pulisic

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Don’t be so terribly sure.

            I’d hope so but I’m not so sure.

            1. Fudgy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 21 days ago

              He has to score eventually, surely

              1. The Suspended One
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                He’ll score...

                Look at how we build play, is he going to be good against bad teams that sit back with 9? Not so sure

                I’m not unhappy with the buy, but Giroud is going to win us more games at striker in this league than turbo. I LOvE him in the CL

      2. Karan14

          My major gwk 1 mistake?

          Pulisic

          My ft gw 4?

          Pulisic

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Pulisic was also in my gw1 team

        Don't let him destroy your season. Set free before its too late

      Are Jimenez and Ings worrh 2m more than Wilson and Maupay?

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        According to prices, yes

      2. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Short term Jimi , longterm when his fixtures shift i will move him to Antonio

        Wilson still need more data on.

      3. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        No i don't think so

      4. FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        If Newcastle score it will be through Wilson, therefore I see him getting a few this season, a quality player too...not sure how long Brighton can keep up their form and Jimi & Ings are consistent, you know what you get but have to pay the price for it

    • Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Do people with KDB C but also have Salah in there team want Salah to do well tomorrow?

      Salah C by the way here.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        100% yes need some points !

      2. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I own Salah and Jimenez and want them both to blank, 100%.

      3. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I'll take an assist but no more

    • Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Why is this season so difficult
      Captains
      Gw1 Kane 4 Points
      Gw2 Bruno 4 points
      Gw3 KDB 4 points
      Gw4 KDB 4 points

      4.5 million overall and Lamptey and potentially Mitchell 0 points coming off the bench

      1. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Wow shocking picks i have to say. Hope it changes next gw

        1. Babit1967
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          On paper they looked good

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I would strongly disagree

            Only one which looks somewhat decent is KDB last week.

            Other 3 are pre gameweek not good picks.

      2. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Honestly think best strategy is to just permacap someone. We usually always mess up our captains

        1. Babit1967
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I’m just leaving on KDB I think, third time lucky and all?

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I hope it works out. Im going for kdb again too. can't take a 4th blank in a row. Somehow got gw1 captain right at least.

        2. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Its not

          Analyze each fixture with stats., there will be bad outcomes where you blank but make the best of the data available

          I have gone
          1. Salah 40 points - as expected Leeds to take Liverpool on and leave space for Mo, never would back Arsenal unless there is no other week option.
          2. Auba 10 - West ham had very poor data going into gw 2, no other option
          3. Sterling 4 - He was gona be CF so was always worth a crack
          4. Sterling 18 - same as 3.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Who should i captain next week? Don't have sterling.

          2. Babit1967
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Surely tho that would mean KDB would make ideal captain pick going by your no1 philosophy

            Nice picks by the way

            1. FPL_trail_runner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 21 days ago

              I dont like KDB role this year - despite what everyone is saying here

              He got a lucky pen and a super lucky assist v Wolves.

              Next week : too early to tell yet, but current thoughts are on

              Sterling or Salah, i may go with Mo

              Those abit riskier could look to Kane or Son.

              1. The Suspended One
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years

                His role is to provide good service to terrible and selfish wingers who can’t play as a team

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        You really should ignore them tonight, long time before next GW

        Just ignore them. I don't even care what's the point. There's always an alternative transfer.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Very similar team.. I’m probably keeping for one more week and looking to bring in Chilwell with the funds for this week

        1. Big Ronnie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Think Werner and Chelsea need a few more games to get the best of him whilst other forwards are firing so ship and get back later I think

      2. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        A

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          But save and do both transfers for free next time
