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.

        Fredericks could pressure Coufal, I think. Masuaka is absolutely nailed, though. That’s why I’m very slightly leaning Masuaku.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Fredericks is awful.

    I will wait but if Trossard blanks again on Sunday...

    a) -4 Trossard ----> Bowen

    b) -8 Trossard and Jimenez ---> Pulisic and Bamford

    c) Keep Trossard and Jimenez

    1. Africa United
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Like a but wait and see how westham lines this week

  4. Africa United
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    That 2 bonus points for Semedo are tasty total 8 points .. took (-12) hit including Semedo so it's like I took (-4 )hit only till now
    Bottom line is that hits sometimes are useful on the short term too

    1. ivantys
        4 months, 5 days ago

        -12 isn't useful at all, unless your 3 hits transfers are all injured players

        1. Africa United
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Well Coleman/ Lewis out for Semedo and Ivanovic lol so technically I couldn't field three defence And also Semedo looked good and nice fixtures
          Other hits Zaha and Maupay to Lookman and Ings so will have to wait maybe will backfire lol

          1. ivantys
              4 months, 5 days ago

              Good calls on the zaha and maupay blanks. I wouldn't have done the second one.

          2. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Also backing ivanovic and mings to grab any headers !

            Kilman and Chilwelll
            I have to put all my hopes for Salah(c)

            1. Surfeit of Lampteys
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 5 days ago

              Pretty safe bet for at least a 7 from Salah you'd imagine.

        As someone who has not watched that many West Ham games, I could need some insight:

        Is it worth to spend the extra 0.5 on Cresswell over Coufal?

        Does Coufal contribute on offensive set pieces, or is his goal/assist potential in open play?

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          I'd be getting Cresswell over Coufal but the saving could be worth it if you can use the money elsewhere

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Coufal is pretty attacking tbf

            1. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              from eye test

                Stats are terrible

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          His crosses are good quality and he is cheaper. Majority like me here are going to have this new player, but Creswell has set pieces and can easily overscore him.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Cresswell is far better imo

        3. ...al
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Wouldn't spend 5 on a Wham def,

          4.5 is fine. He crosses enough.No Antonio though

          and fwiw, I'm going nowhere near West Ham def. Shag that. Unpopular but that's my 2c

          1. jia you jia you

        Is Chilwell actually rising? down from 101.2 to 100.6

        1. ...al
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Possibly

          He's a hotcake

        2. ivantys

            I saw Son on 150+% earlier not sure if it's a glitch.

          4 months, 5 days ago

          Time to shake things up here a bit I think.
          TAA/ Jimenez + possibly Podence out.
          Chil/Coufal/Bamford/Adams considerations to bring in.
          Anything standing out?

          McCarthy.
          TAA, Robbo, Ayling.
          Salah, Barkley, Podence, Son.
          Kane, Jimenez, DCL.
          Button, Justin, Mitchell, Bissouma.

          4 months, 5 days ago

          Is Jimenez + Podence —> Bamford + Zaha for free a good move?

          Thinking Bowen could be good also but Idk

          1. You've got red on you.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Nope. Not seen anything amazing from Zaha. And Bamford is no guarantee of points. Plus Jim and Podence are fine.

          2. ivantys
              4 months, 5 days ago

              Leicester is actually a good fixture for Wolves as they prefer to be without the ball and counter attacking. Even palace could outpossess them.

              1. Wılly
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                4 months, 5 days ago

                Not anymore, wolves are looking to play a possession game

                1. ivantys
                    4 months, 5 days ago

                    They didn't against palace, at least in the second half. I was shaking as a Semedo owner.

            • Ibralicious
              • 6 Years
              4 months, 5 days ago

              The best move here?

              A) Zaha + Castagne -> Rashford + Coufal (-4)
              B) Castagne -> Creswell

              * Won't be making them till after the weekend's games obviously (would be able to afford Rashford barring a Castagne price drop)

            • ivantys
                4 months, 5 days ago

                Why are ppl even selling fodders? I thought Burke was safe lol.

                1. HashAttack
                  • 3 Years
                  4 months, 5 days ago

                  Looking at price changes, it appears that it is a fixed number of buys to increase a players price, regardless of ownership, but the decrease is based on a non-linear percentage of the ownership. The lower the ownership, the easier it is for a players price to drop

                  1. ivantys
                      4 months, 5 days ago

                      Yeah I understand the lower the ownership, the lower the number of sales needed to drop the price. I just don't understand the need to sell fodders, probably those who switched from mf fodder to forward one. Hopefully there's a cheaper one the next time I WC then.

                      1. HashAttack
                        • 3 Years
                        4 months, 5 days ago

                        Could be people switching formation - 3-4-3 to 3-5-2

                        1. ivantys
                            4 months, 5 days ago

                            Yeah maybe Brewster being a semi nailed 4.5 somewhat caused it

                          • Major League Shocker
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                            • 1 Year
                            4 months, 5 days ago

                            Yeah, casuals often think nothing of frequently spending two transfers to do moves like Premium fwd + Fodder mid -> Fodder fwd + Premium mid to catch the latest "must-have" player. And then they may go back the other direction the very next week.

                            Skilled managers, who are few in number, understand that transfers are precious. But it's the casuals, who are many, who drive the market.

                            1. ivantys
                                4 months, 5 days ago

                                Yeah they kept taking the useless hits and disrupting the market.

                        2. Baps hunter
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 3 Years
                          4 months, 5 days ago

                          There was a strategy to own less owned fodders since they were less likely to drop in price. Maybe that has been "fixed".

                          1. ivantys
                              4 months, 5 days ago

                              Yeah that was my plan when I initially selected a 4.5 fodder.

                            • HashAttack
                              • 3 Years
                              4 months, 5 days ago

                              I always knew the price drops were based on the ownership but didn't notice (until the season) that the percentage drops as the ownership drops - so low own players, especially those on less than 1% ownership, can drop very easily

                            • HashAttack
                              • 3 Years
                              4 months, 5 days ago

                              It's now the opposite - best to have fodder that has a high ownership

                              1. ivantys

                            Rotation, covid and short term testicle injuries...

                            maybe to strengthen their bench to get a starter rather than fodder ? I rarely own fodder and prefer to rotate cheap 4.5 starters

                                I'm sure there are way more pressing issues with injuries and covid everywhere than to spend a free transfer on your fodder lol.

                                  not always ... when a 4.5 becomes a non starter I ease them out when the chance arises, I like a playing bench to rotate as a strategy

                                  Actually having a decent playing bench means you can ride out the more pressing issues with injuries, this week I have held James Rod because I have Kilman & Romeu on my bench, but also have Struijk (fodder) that I will upgrade if he doesn’t start.

                                  People play the game differently, sometimes change formation and need to sell fodder ...

                                      I consider Romeu as your fodder which is just someone who gets 1-3 points most of the time from your bench, which all fodders get. Even a defender is better to be subbed in ahead of a fodder mid. That is why fodders are never worth a transfer, unless on WC.

                                      1. Hotdogs for Tea

                                        Romeu has a double digit haul already and more points than Mount, Mahrez & KDB 😉 as I said, people play the game differently

                                        1. ivantys
                                            4 months, 5 days ago

                                            Exactly. On rare occasions that he hauls, he would be on most ppl's bench so his usual points are 1-3.

                                            1. Hotdogs for Tea

                                              the chance of 1 - 3 points or maybe an 11 pointer if one of your players gets injured or benched and doesn’t play after the dead line is better than zero points

                                              and if he loses his place in the Soton team I may sell him ... what is so difficult to understand about that ? that is why people from time to time sell fodder if their team is in good shape rather than some lame transfer like Trossard to Harvey Barnes or who ever hauled the week before lol

                                  Could also be people wanting to find another 0.1m and getting in a 4.4m mid - e.g. Riedewald

                                      Who is everyone? He had a great game, could have easily got the assist for the 1st goal and came close to scoring again in the 2nd half. Definitely no reason to sell.

                                        No reason to sell now tbh. But their fixtures are turning sour soon.

                                          I think next two aren’t bad. They do turn sour after that. I’m not sure how much fixtures impact Wolves anyway but for me, it would be a decision I’d consider in 2 GWs rather than now.

                                      Oui... Only for free though if no other issues. I am planning Robbo to Coufal and Hames to Rashford.
                                      It may naturally backfire in case of bigger injury.

                                    Just watched Wolves replay, how Jimenez didn't return something in that game is beyond me.

                                      He was invisible aside from assisting the assister (who didn’t get an assist) on the first goal

                                        Wasn't invisible to me, was getting into good positions, was open in the box more than a couple of times but never got the pass. Did mistime a couple of runs that didn't help but I thought he was pretty unlucky all in all.

                                          So, decent work off the ball but uninvolved altogether. Yeah.

                                          He was nervous in my eyes.I will sell him. 🙁

                                        Assisted the assister on the second goal, was inches away from a Neves cross, and set up a good chance for Traore. Certainly wasn't invisible.

                                      He was in the right places, but his teammates weren't finding him.

                                        I rmb how almost every adama cross found him last year when I owned him. damn you neto!

                                          His next two fixtures could be good. Leicester and Southampton. Could be a decent amount of goals in both of those games.

                                      Sterling is looking on form atm. A definite non sell anyway.

                                        Captaining him against pool as I absolutely love the pool defence now.

                                          I wouldn't go so far as to captain but I like the fixture too, think it's going to put people off which is fine by me.

                                              I'm actually done captaining players against teams who park bus. It hurts my eyes watching the games.

                                                It would certainly make it an even more enjoyable watch if you put the arm band on Raz, enjoy

                                                    Yeah I guess I would enjoy more captaining him than if I captain son or kane vs that midlands bus.

                                          Thinking something like either-
                                          1. TAA/Podence/Jimenez -> Coufal/Sterling (11.8)/Adams.
                                          2. TAA/Podence/Jimenez -> Chilwell/Fernandes (10.5m)/Adams.
                                          Any of these look decent or something else?

                                              Get rid of Mitchell and Dunne. Mitchell is perhaps less pressing until we see what choice Hodgson makes when he has both he and van Aanholt fit at the same time. But Dunne is a bench warmer with Burnley defenders coming back from injury.

                                              A looks good if you want to spend the extra over Coufal. No need to take a hit.

                                              Digne is only suspended for this week and Robbo will have have MCI anyway
                                              Saiss to Cresswell makes sense but I'm going for Coufal (31 in 6 vs 16 in 3)

                                            Took a gamble and went Mitchell to Kilman before the deadline, feeling pretty good about myself right now! Got 2 FT this week as well.

                                              Well played, I had considered it but then would have double Wolves defence, looking at a blank now though as doesn't look like Lascelles will play.

                                              Did it with Ferguson. Good thing too as otherwise i'd have only had 2 defenders this week with Lascelles injury and Saiss no show.

                                              I had different strategy last year. The idea was that early transfers are worth the risk early in the season if I definitely know what I want. I think it went quite well. I was lucky though and none of the players I transferred got injured before next PL match. Itb:s are more risky etc though.

                                              I am happy to pay 4 pts for two million extra tv for the latter part of the season.

                                                      Price changes, Chillwell falling below level, may hold out another day which would be good, don’t want to buy him for next Saturday when he plays twice before that

                                                        People are buying Chilwell. At least give home the facts straight.

                                                          He’s falling below the level to rise, was over 101 earlier, now 100.4 with single arrow, may not rise with wc factor

                                                            No one knows the rise threshold for this gameweek as there haven’t been any changes yet. It’s just a best guess. But I’d still be very surprised if Chilwell didn’t rise tonight.

                                                              That’s what it’s adjusting for, other transfers watering down the increase factor. I’ve seen lots of 100.x not rise this year

                                                    No, don’t buy, it keeps going down, just let it happen

                                                      Cool. I will wait until after the Chelsea game. How does one find where he is going down?

                                                  Other plaeyers were also close to score. He didn't look like the talisman. If they had better fixtures I would consider even Dendonks who didn't look worse than Zaha. Yet, this was only one match.

                                                    Dendonk was was closer to scoring, was playing as cf in possession

                                                  There is no one I like for captaincy next GW. I can see Mourinho going for a 0-1 score again at WBA similar to Burnley, not confident against Chelsea attackers against a 5 men deep lying defence and rest have terrible fixtures. It’s a shame Antonio is injured.

                                                  Ings is perhaps the only decent option.

                                                    Plenty of potential options. Kane, Son, Pulisic, Werner

                                                      I don’t think any of those are good options next GW.

                                                    You are nuts, it’s Kane 100%

                                                      Ings is against another park bus team as well. Just go for city player cap.
