Kane and Son turn the screw on dominating effective top 10k ownership

Harry Kane (£10.9m) continues to turn the screw on his effective ownership among the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers.

Following what looked like a close-call in the Gameweek 7 captaincy debate, the latest statistics from the top-level managers told a completely different story.

Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) was the winner of the latest Fantasy Football Scout captain poll for the second week in a row, his 28.9% share of the vote just 4.1 percentage points ahead of Kane’s backing.

However, just as we saw last week, there is considerably more love for the Spurs man among the top 10k.

As you can see from the pie chart above, he has made a mockery of the Fantasy Football Scout captain poll at this level, by sweeping up 58% support for the armband at this level for Gameweek 7. That is an increase of 8.4 percentage points on last round.

19.3% went for Son Heung-min (£9.5m), which means that, even though he won our captain poll, just 15.9% of top 10k managers backed Salah for the armband. Perhaps West Ham’s recent improvements in defence was a key reason for the Egyptian’s lower than expected performance in this area.

There is a much more even spread for the captaincy at an overall level, but the Spurs assets still came out on top ahead of their hosting of Brighton.

24.6% have chosen Kane as heir skipper, 21.5% went with Son and a similar portion that we saw in the top 10k trusted Salah.

Kane and Son turn the screw on dominating effective top 10k ownership

With Spurs proving more and more popular among the top 10k, the effective ownership figures for Kane and Son are approaching frightening levels.

The former boasts 146.7% ownership at this level for Gameweek 7, with Son the second-highest on 110.1%.

While West Ham’s defence has provided stern tests for their opponents in recent weeks, Salah backers will probably be pleased to see him mostly overlooked. His 81.6% effective ownership is certainly enough to cause waves if he outscores the Spurs pair.

Even after just one match, Gameweek 7 has not been kind on the defensive template among the top 10k managers.

Following a seven-point score in Gameweek 6, Romain Saïss (£5.3m) came into the latest round of fixtures as the top-scoring defender. Unsurprisingly, his ownership at this level increased accordingly, rising from the fourth-most to most-owned between the two deadlines.

However, much to the chagrin of the 35.9% of top 10k managers in possession of the Moroccan, he dropped to the bench for the Friday night meeting with Crystal Palace, losing his place to goal-scorer Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m).

That event was compounded by the fact that the top 10k’s third-most fashionable defender Tyrick Mitchell (£4.2m), owned by 32.4% missed the match completely, following a knock he picked up in training.

After Liverpool failed to keep a clean sheet at home to Sheffield United last time out, the stock of their defenders continues to fall.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) slips to 24.9% ownership inside the top 10k, while Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) drops out of the top-five in this position.

Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) appears the most popular replacement for those leaving Liverpool defenders behind, the Chelsea left-back a new entry into this template at 26.4% top 10k ownership.

We have already seen that Son, Kane and Salah are fast-becoming must-owns in the top 10k, based on their ownership at this level, but Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) is challenging the boundaries of such a status.

482,570 Fantasy managers signed the Crystal Palace man for Gameweek 7, more than any other midfielder. That means 50.3% of the top 10k now own him, handing him the fourth-highest figure in terms of effective ownership.

However, it was a poor start to such commanding ownership levels as Zaha blanked and picked up a yellow card against Wolves.

The Eagles face Leeds (home), Burnley (away), Newcastle (home) and West Bromwich Albion (away) between now and Gameweek 11 though.

Patrick Bamford‘s (£5.9m) Gameweek 6 hat-trick has also re-shaped the forwards’ template in the upper echelons.

Kane, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and Callum Wilson (£6.5m) were the top-three most-popular forwards last time out, with the latter holding onto just 23.4% ownership.

Fast-forward to Gameweek 7 and Bamford has smashed his way into that trio, sat in 42.5% of top 10k squads.

Finally, a look at the chip usage demonstrates the credentials of the top 10k even more.

This group can no longer be referred to a selection of managers who wasted their chips early or rode their luck when doing so.

As you can see 44.1% of them are still yet to even deploy the Wildcard, let alone the Triple Captain, Free Hit or Bench Boost.

37.3% have used one chip, while no more than 13.3% are inside the top 10k on the back of using more than one.

94.4% of top 10k managers went chipless into Gameweek 7.

The Triple Captain was the most popular, but only 2% used it, mostly on Kane.

1.7% opted to use the Wildcard.

        Ings has as many goals as Jiménez and scored just 4pts more than him last season.

        Not sure I can see that move as anything other than sideways.

    Semedo with a farewell 8 pts. Not too bad. Zaha meanwhile staying after just 1 pt. Doesn’t feel right

    Saiss is currently the 5th most bought player ahead of next weekend

        Great to see someone who did the same as me! But mark my words - Bowen will outscore him!

          Podence just hasn't been great...one week doesn't out do the previous 6 GW

          1. Werner Bremen
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            I don't know what you mean, Podence was great. Fantasy wise maybe not, but he was playing pretty decent.

    2. Right In The Stanchion

        I’ve owned Bowen numerous times thinking I was way ahead of the curve.

        Always flopped for me

      Many of the top 10k are casuals I expect they will start panic selling Saiss next week, cant wait.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Saiss looks to have lost his spot, poor fixtures coming too. I cant blame the ‘casuals’.

      2. Hryszko
        • 3 Years

        You expect him to keep his place?

      3. Do I Not Like Orange

        I'm no casual but can't see much point in keeping a 5.3M substitute.

        1. ivantys
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Hi there, didn't you question me saying Saiss not nailed and that nailed meant someone like Coady who plays 38 games a season?

            1. Gnu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Never mentioned Coady or 38 games a season. I just focused on the fact that you post complete guff all the time. 😉

              1. ivantys
                  4 months, 6 days ago

                  I did say nailed is someone like Coady 🙂 And you questioning my Saiss post then mentioned an out of nowhere Bamford 🙂

                  1. Gnu
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    4 months, 6 days ago

                    You mentioned Coady.
                    I was going from OP of "There's been a ton of luck so far this season but at least skill prevailed today when Saiss owners outscored Kilman cheapskates"
                    But as I mentioned, it was on back of a number of posts including Bamford.ones.
                    Your point?

                    1. ivantys
                        4 months, 6 days ago

                        No point, just recapping what you said and good that you actually remembered I did say Coady

              Didn't play that well but on another night he comes out of that match with two goals and an assist anyway.

              Not great, but Wolves looked a lot better on the whole.

              Hmm not too convincing but but he had a few half chances

              Rather Ings up top and Wolves at the back

              hope not, I got Rashford in this week to join Bruno.

              Was a good sign to see the pair rested in CL and kept for the PL games. Hope that continues.

            Saiss to Creswell the obvious move at that price bracket, ya?

              I think so. Or cheaper defender from WHU.

              Not really, no.

              Would prefer Coufal or Masuaku and save the change.

                4 months, 6 days ago

                Masuaku could be a risk if WHU change formation - plus Benrahma lurking in the background - I'm going to get Coufal

                Amazing save kept one out of corner and assist denied by a touch, best player on pitch and easy keep for me

                  I saw some Hazard moves from him last week. Cant see why people keep Jiminez at 8.5 but dont like Podence at 5.5!? Illusion?

                I was planning to sell him after this game but it wasn't due to his performances of late as I've thought he's looked sharp every time he plays, my concern was more about minutes and maybe losing his spot. I really can't see it after tonight's performance though and although the early substitutions are annoying.

              What’s the sudden rush for Rashford? Sure he did will in the CL this week but it was one game? Surely Bruno is the more reliable MUN option.

                      Interesting, definitely worth keeping an eye over the next few weeks. Personally I’m not desperate for any United assets for a while.

                        Yeah I’m thinking by the time I get him he will be hurt or played out of position again, he is by far their best #9

                Bruno is the better option without doubt

                  Not clear cut, may lose pens, Telles took most corners off him too. The covid diagnosis helps Bruno, but I think his deeper role continues to hurt his value, not worth the extra points with rashford playing striker

                I brought him in. The spare change is already looking handy because it allows me to do Saiss > Chilwell.

                Bruno is a better pick but that doesnt mean they both cant provide value, especially considering Salah or Son/kane are hogging the armband

                Don't think so at all. He just played a lot of games recently, no ? But it tells you that Wolves, with european football, are gonna rotate, so their assets will be at risk sometimes. They're not that expensive so you can cope with that with a solid bench imo.

                If being English Spurs fan and therefore owning both Kane and Son early is definition of luck, then absolutely correct.

                    Maybe so, maybe not. OGS has made some changes. Maybe he fears for his job now and won't risk too much vwith Martial.

                  He just scored a hattie from bench and I see no reason why he couldn't be C material just like Son.

                    It's pretty risky to move now and he still has two full games. Tricky spot.

                      I know but he’s pretty fit, I’ll hope for a rest in one of those two.

                      Decided not to do it. The option to go down to West Ham is a real option that I have to consider. I might not plump for Chilwell especially since I still have James.

                      I have a pretty interesting set of moves in Saiss + Foden > Pulisic + Balbuena as an option.

                        4 months, 6 days ago

                        I am buying both cresswell and Chilwell just deciding order

                  4 months, 6 days ago

                  Worth it now. You can assess whether any other move is worth a hit

                  I'd go cheaper, need fund to City's Mid(s)

                Would you rather take a punt on Bowen or get Bamford instead?

                How did PVA look for his 0 points ... time to sell?
                Worth keeping Mitchell still?

                  Won a pen but it was offside, he was good, I expect him to take schlupps place or Mitchell to RB

                    Thanks - got an assist last week, but that was also offside

                  If u already own then its an easy keep, these fixtures are what u bought for

                Few of my transfers in the last few weeks:

                Removed Adams in GW 5, scores first goal of the season
                Removed Doherty in GW 6, keeps first CS of the season
                Removed Podence in GW 7, scores first goal of the season

                In case anyone was wondering, I'm planning to get rid of Foden next week.

                  Foden looks great value, stop chasing points

                    Fixtures are difficult for a few weeks. And I want to downgrade to eventually make money for KdB/Sterling. I may very well end up keeping him. These are just early thoughts.

                        What can you downgrade Foden to? Are there any good options?

                          Grealish was in my thoughts for Villa's fixtures.

                        Foden has some amazing fixtures coming after Liverpool and Spurs.

                        City have basically the best run of any team this year starting week 10 and going for 10 weeks.

                        Im looking to triple up on city. Selling Foden now is prime to cost you soon.

                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          4 months, 6 days ago

                          City haven't shown any form in the league for me to consider even doubling up, let alone tripling up. Factor in the Pep roulette in that. If they do show form, double up with KdB/Sterling and Foden is plausible but anything more than that just doesn't make any sense given how the season has gone so far.

                    Pulisic could easily outscore Podence this week.

                      4 months, 6 days ago

                      Yeah. Looking back, given a chance I'd still make the transfers I have made in the past few weeks again.

                  -4 worth it?
                  A) saiss mitchell foden to chilwell cresswell soucek
                  B) saiss Mitchell dcl to chilwell cresswell bamford

                  Or
                  Just saiss Mitchell to cresswell and 4.5

                      4 months, 6 days ago

                      A hit to sell foden or dcl does not make sense

                  4 months, 6 days ago

                  Triple United looking good for the Spurs swap Bruno Rash and Martial in, great differentials. I expect 0.5 price rises on some of those players.

                  Thoughts-

                  Too risky to go double Chelsea defence?

                  Got ChillyB & toying with Zouma?

                  Or just Mitchell > Kilman & Saiss > Koufal or similar?

                    Im debating Cresswell or Zouma as my Saiss replacement. (Have Chilwell already too)

                      Chelsea seem solid?
                      The other two free up some funds?

                        4 months, 6 days ago

                        More solid but still prone to conceding. Has mitchell lost his place?

                      Creswell on set pieces?
                      Koufal scoring well for 4.5

                        Yeah, creswell No2 on the ICT index. No1 creative defender in the league so far.
