Top 10k FPL managers and FFS poll voters disagree on Kane’s captain credentials

Harry Kane‘s (£10.8m) tightened his hold over the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 6.

The in-form Spurs man, currently the top-scoring Fantasy asset in any position, has proved to be the most popular captain at this level for the latest round of matches.

49.6% of managers inside the top 10k felt Kane was the best option for the armband, perhaps swayed by the fact that he has four goals in his last two Premier League trips to Burnley.

The most interesting part of Kane winning the captaincy debate at the top level of FPL this week is the fact that he was largely overlooked for the armband on a worldwide scale and in Fantasy Football Scout’s latest poll.

Just 20.8% captained Kane overall, while he only mustered the support of just 18.7% of the Fantasy Football Scout vote.

At this early stage of the season, it is still difficult to insist with cast-iron certainty that the top 10k always know better than everybody else but this is perhaps the first time in 2020/21 that we have a chance to really test their opinion against the masses.

The difference in opinion between the two groups of managers certainly makes Kane’s effective ownership in the top 10k rather ominous.

For the second week in a row, he has the highest figure in this department in the top 10k, with effective ownership of 139.9%.

Meanwhile, the people’s choice Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) is less of a force at this level than our polls previously indicated.

Despite winning the Scout captaincy poll and earning more armbands in the world than anyone else, the Egyptian has the second-highest effective ownership among the top 10k for Gameweek 6 (108.7%).

Even without the captaincy, Kane is now the most popular player among the top 10k anyway.

His standard ownership at this level increased by roughly 19 percentage points between the Gameweek 5 and 6 deadlines, rising from 70.4% to 89.2%.

That takes him past Salah, whose ownership among these managers has dropped from 80% to 72.7%.

That drop sees Son Heung-min (£9.4m) overtake him as the top 10k’s most fashionable midfielder, although the Egyptian is still ahead on effective ownership when we take captaincy into account.

This week’s saga surrounding the fitness of James Rodríguez (£8.0m) has, unsurprisingly, seen his stock drop at this level too. He remains the third-most-popular, but he has lost 10 percentage points of ownership among the top 10k.

Jack Grealish (£7.2m) and Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) appear to have been among the chief replacements for Everton’s playmaker, as their selection rates increased by 7.8 and 9.6 percentage points respectively.

The sales of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) have had an impact at the top end of FPL as well as the rest of the world.

He was owned by 39.8% of the top 10k for Gameweek 5, more than any other defender. With the Gameweek 6 deadline now behind us, Alexander-Arnold sits in just 27.9% of teams at this level, Tyrick Mitchell (£4.2m) and James Justin (£4.8m) overtaking him as the most fashionable defenders.

Meanwhile, Emiliano Martínez (£4.8m) has finally crept into the top 10k template, now the second-most-popular goalkeeper with 31.7% backing at this level, although he failed to keep a clean sheet in Friday’s meeting with Leeds.

Chip usage was not particularly heavy in the top 10k for Gameweek 6.

The Wildcard was the most-used, although it was only deployed by 4.9% of managers at this level.

Meanwhile, while it can be easy to assume top 10k managers at this stage of the season have made a strong start following heavy chip usage, it is to their credit that 46.6% of them are still yet to use any at all.

36.9% have used one chip, almost certainly the Wildcard in most cases, which has been used by 38.2% of top 10k managers.

    The leeds ' poor ' defence has now conceded 2 goals across 4 games

    Which included matches against Wolves , Villa away and City

    And 1 of those goals was a massive deflection

    They are as i said in week 1 gona be this years Sheffield united.

      Are you a Leeds fan by any chance?

      1. FPL_trail_runner

        1 month, 1 day ago

        Nope

        I like stats, they (leeds) have excellent underlying stats and have based on this the best defence from the championship that has come into the PL

        and have now added a German international to it.

      Please don't keep going on. Take the victory and have that warm feeling inside.

        Im honestly trying to get more people to invest in them.

        Great value there.

      I haven't seen any FPL analysis that shows Leeds have great stats for defence. Maybe that will change with easier fixtures.

    4. El Niño Yanqui

      Yeah, they are good

  2. ZeBestee

    Given that I was contemplating Bamford or Watkins and went with the latter, feels awful. Have to accept that decisions have been bad, and luck hasnt been on my side.

    1. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Bamford is outperforming his ability (when compared with historic stats) - Watkins the better player in the better side, so I wouldn't beat yourself up too much about it

      1. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        He missed an easy chance at the end.

        1. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Would that have been Barkley assist?

            Yep

          2. ZeBestee
            • 6 Years

            I think McGinn

          These things happen - I'm sure Messi has missed the odd easy chance in his life...
          (I'm not suggesting a comparison of an AVFC striker and Messi, btw)

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years

            Well you are by just making that statement. I have watched Watkins 3 times in the prem and he has looked trash. When he scored his goals against Liverpool his face suggested he was surprising himself

          2. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Exactly this. Aguero misses a big chance, and no-one makes a meal of it.

            1. ZeBestee
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              Aguero misses a chance and ends up with a brace.

                1 month, 1 day ago

                In a Man City team...

                Look, I'm not comparing Watkins and Aguero 🙂 I'm saying it's easy to pick on the new guy.

                1. ZeBestee
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  Given that he is in my team, I was at pains watching him tonight. Will still give him Southampton though.

            2. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              Just no. How can you make a comparison between aguero and Watkins?

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 1 day ago

                oh please.

                1. No Professionals
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  You were though?

      2. Bookkeeper
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        disagree that Watkins is a better player than Bamford. The latter is far superior.

        1. ZeBestee
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          I think the difference between them isn't far apart.

      3. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Villa better than Leeds?

      4. keog
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Not sure about been the better side . Leeds won away from home and won well and have played well since the season start. Tonights result is no fluke. They are a very good team.

      5. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        The better side?! Stop trolling

    2. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      You made the correct decision based on the information available to you.

      I did the same - over the next few weeks this will pay off.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Hopefully.

      2. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Or it might not. The hard part is to keep making the correct decisions based on the info available, likelihood is it will pay off overall if you do.

    3. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I don’t think either are elite strikers.

      Bamford looks like more of a focal point.

      Watkins looks like a championship striker completely out of his depth

      1. ZeBestee
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I like the fact that Leeds have played City before this, and dominated in parts. They are the way to go before we realize too late while the casuals don't overthink it.

      2. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Watkins was playing for Weston-super-Mare only a few years ago 😀

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Doesn't mean much, plenty of top players have come from non league obscurity to great success.

      3. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Yup, sub-6M strikers....

        Be a few out there hoping Rodriguez's not playing...

    4. Granville

      1 month, 1 day ago

      Ups and downs. I had Watkins and sold him before the Liverpool game because he looked a weak frontman. I might be wrong but every player has his day and it's just unfortunate. Fortunately for me I kept Bamford through my wildcard.

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Must have been a wild game to watch as an owner with so few with him tonight

        I remember donkey years ago I managed to have 2 players in the same game who got hattricks ( Wigan 5 Blackburn 3) when Santa Cruz and Marcus Bent scored 6 between them

        My happiness was somehwhat deflated when i later realised i had bent first sub.

        Doesnt feel like 13! years ago.

    Have 2 FT, Help

    A) Werner, Jimi, JRod/Zaha to Kane, Son & Maupay for -4
    B) Werner & Jimi to Kane & Maupay
    C) Werner & Sterling to Kane & Son

    1. John Nerdelbaum
      • 8 Years

      Probably best to wait and see them all play!

      1. Chhana
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        yeah that's what I'm thinking but had to get Kane & Son asap

    2. zman575
        1 month, 1 day ago

        all bad transfers. it amuses me how many people have sold jimenez before 2 easy home fixtures. cant wait to see them burned

        1. Chhana
          • 6 Years

          happy with my team but going without Kane & Son is annoying

          1. zman575
              1 month, 1 day ago

              youve already done it. no point jumping on for 2 weeks now. either hold or find new players who will bang like antonio from gw 8 or city players gw 10. chelsea could easily kick on after this weekend too with their fixture list. or man utd.

        The winner of this season is going to have more points than anyone before. No stats to base that yet, but since random enablers score like premiums used to, the lucky (and jammy) winner is going to have The Biggest Jackpot of points ever!

        1. No Professionals

            thats cos so many people love a premium defender. chasing cs is a pointless part of this game imo unless your defender can also get regular attacking returns too like robbo.

          A bit tempted in doing Castagne, Grealish and Maupay > Vestergaard, McGinn and Kun for a hit (after the games has been played of course).

          Would give me:

          Martinez
          PvA Saïss Chilwell
          Mo Son Hamez McGinn
          Kane DCL Kun

          Bench: Vestergaard Lamptey Stephens

          Yay or nay?

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Nah not worth a hit

            Aguero has Sheffield away and then Liverpool + Jesus coming back soon

            And those 3 players you have are decent. Keep patient.

        5. Kryptonite666
          • 1 Year

          Why Vestergaard ? Dont like Mcginn pick either.

          Martinez
          Chillwell Dallas Lamptey (KWP) (Branthwaite)
          Salah Sterling Son Rodriguez (Stephens)
          Kane DCL Watkins

              I would 100% hold for Saints. Thought Leeds were really impressive rather than Villa looking bad this evening.

              Finding it hard to find reasons to keep Brewster in a forward slot for a poor attacking team when Bamford is now nailed in a very good attacking team.

              Always thought Rodrigo would replace him not play with him.

              He could be the 2020 version of Jimi from 2018.

                100%. Leeds are brilliant value, DON'T have a poor defence and will probably win the league. This isn't based on tonight's result, BTW.

                Villa losing to Leeds isn't that surprising, just the margin and Bamford getting a hat trick...

              This guy not only owned Bamford, but he went ahead and captained him ahead of Salah, Kane and Son.

                1 is chasing points.... What's the chance of lightning striking twice.

                Try to get Kane in.

              Have 2FTs and depending on what happens I may actually make these really exciting moves:

              Buur to Kilman
              Davis to Brewster

              Thoughts?

                Would leave:

                Martinez
                TAA | Lamptey | Dallas
                Salah | Bruno | Son | Rodriguez | Soucek
                Kane | DCL

                Steer | Brewster | Kilman | Mitchell

                  Depends your strategy

                  You could try and win it. And take more risk or be happy to stay in top 2k

                  A riskier but bigger upside move would be :

                  Bruno + DCL to Pulisic/Havertz + Werner

                  Big upside on those based on Chelsea fixtures.

                    Hmm I like the idea generally except selling DCL

                      1 month, 1 day ago

                      Have to take some risks and bet against the majority

                      You already did this so far having Kane week 1

                          1 month, 1 day ago

                          Could do Taa to Kilman and Soucek to Pulisic

                    Let’s face it I’ll never win it! E.g this week I went Salah C mainly because he seems the most popular

                      You should change your name in that case tbh.

                        He’ll be back, most weeks. Just think Pool will destroy Sheff

                          Plus the heavy pool on Salah too swayed me even more

                        "Captain FFS Pick"

                        Well, tbh I was between Salah and Kane myself and went for Salah as I had planned.

                          Was very tough, I just really hope they score similarly!

              89% ownership for Kane is crazy. Basically only matters if you captain him.

                  The people who are in the top 10k are there because they have owned Kane and Son from the start. That's where they've got so many points from.

                Um you do realise part of the reason they might be in top 10K is because they owned Kane for more than people late to the party.

                Branston pickle, and slip some vintage cheddar in there somewhere. Good luck.

                I think I'm gonna stop playing fpl seriously this year. Way off the mark already and that bammy hattrick has broken me. Funfun transfers here we come

                    I have no idea but i calmly turned off the match and started reading a book. Im not even mad. Im guessing that means broken.

                    If it is mostly casuals who own Bamford, they will no continue to play him forever! No worries.

                      My minileague leader who already had kane and son from beginning exclusively has him so everyon is like over a hundred points below him. I think it's done. We've already congratulated him on his victory :p

                        I made up a 150 point gap and won a few years ago from around GW20, there’s SO many twists and turns to go!

                      If you get upset at players you don’t own or never considered, hauling sometimes, then you shouldn’t play FPL.

                      It’s meant to be a game for fun. There is a big luck element involved I believe but still, people on this site take it way too seriously sometimes.

                        Im not upset. Just a moment of clarity. Our minileague leader has won. He's way too ahead of everyone else. And i don't play for overall rank. Im gonna have fun with it now

                          60 points can be made up with a triple captain.

                          To be honest, I stopped playing 2 seasons ago in GW10. Took out Auba and then he hauled against Fulham and Leicester. So painful.

                          It was nice having a break and now I don’t get frustrated if something in FPL goes wrong.

                            Yeah i think im at that point myself. Zen. I am like 100% okay with my decision. Not upset or angry at all. I feel happier that im not gonna stress over this anymore.

                        Its mostly faux hysterics/banter.

                        Only people who sold/benched (??) can be aggrieved.

                          Yeah, but don’t you see the way some react if their captain hasn’t scored by half time?

                          Not just that. People are so scared to go against the herd sometimes simply because of FOMO.

                Man city Liverpool and have very nice fixtures from week 10

                City in particular have amazing fixtures to target (Burnley , fulham, west brom, Southampton, Newcastle) , just realised I can get Aguero Sterling and KDB without any hits by week 10. Just means losing the Everton double up in attack and Son. Spurs and Everton fixtures turn bad exactly at the right time to get this :

                Meslier
                Ayling Robbo TAA
                Soucek Sterling Salah KDB
                Brewster Antonio Aguero
                4ml Bissouma kilman 4mil

                  Judging by this season I’m going to go triple West Brom at some point

                    At least not triple Fulham, so no worries.

                      Did briefly consider Soucek to Lookman....

                  If Kilman is not nailed then you are in trouble... Bench is too weak

                    Dont need a bench when starting 11 + 1 playing sub are all as close to nailed as possibly

                    Plus its a team to get to the 2nd wildcard for the dgw

                    Massive upside to have triple city for those games.

                      1 month, 1 day ago

                      If one of Robbo / TAA gets rested then you have no playing defenders coming on them (if Kilman is not nailed that is)

                  Weren’t you the guy yesterday who said Auba doesn’t score against top 6 teams despite him scoring against Chelsea, United, Spurs last season?

                  1. FPL_trail_runner
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    1 month, 1 day ago

                    No

                    I said he doesnt haul. And said 90% of his returns last year came against teams outside the top 6.

                  In all seriousness I just need to see City firing first before committing. Be nice to be ahead of the curve I guess

                    But they will fire. When have Man City in the last 10 years not fired?

                        4 games? They were firing against wolves actually, so 3.

                        This site is so knee jerky. If they haul tomorrow then everyone will run for their lives to get KDB.

                          1 month, 1 day ago

                          All my moves so far in past 2 weeks are to make cash for Son to KDB in week 9

                          Now can also make Hamez and DCL to become Soucek and Aguero week 10

                          Big risk but big upside

                This is why u need a weak bench
                U wouldnt be upset when bemford or kilman get double digits

                  I would say weak is good, but I always maximise funds on the starting eleven and opt for a cheap playing bench. I think that’s what you are inferring here too

                Quality from Leeds, quality from Bamford. Their build up play is immense.

                Grealish owners unlucky not to haul. Two exceptional chances for him and an amazing run. Would have been goal of the season (non owner)

                Mitrovic on 101% to drop tonight. Can't see any good reason not to ditch for Bamford on 2 FT's??

                    Bielsa's Leeds seem to have goals no matter where they go

                  I saw a similar post 2 weeks ago but instead of Bamford it was Watkins.

                  Yes do it

                    Cheers. Think I'll pull the trigger tonight

                  Yes, it seems like points chasing, but -1 for Mitro and potential +2 for Bamford this week is nothing to shake a stick at

                    -0.1 and +0.2 is what I meant, to be clear
