Former FPL winner’s Wildcard team for FPL Gameweek 9

With injuries making my Fantasy Premier League team resemble the condiment options at a hotdog van, this international break seemed like an ideal opportunity to finally play my Wildcard.

I am currently sitting at about 500k with 482 points, which is okay (I guess) for this stage of the season but, naturally, I am looking to improve on that. Thus far, it is my captaincy picks that have let me down the most with only 84 points in total coming from the armband and four blanks from eight. 

I know that there are a few managers with much better captaincy scores than me who are ranked lower which, to me, suggests that the overall strategy is working okay, I just need to be a bit smarter or a bit luckier in that area.

With that in mind, while I am Wildcarding, I’ll be aiming to stick to my core principles this season of maintaining a reasonably balanced spread of funds across the squad, not going too heavy on any particular team and trying to select players who can score in multiple ways.

I will outline my decision-making process for each position before revealing the final squad at the end…

      Tbh it's very tough all three have their pros & cons. All I can say is I wouldn't bet against any of those three going big. Good advantage wildcarders have is they can have all 3.

      VC for me

    2. Stoic
      • 4 Years

      Third option for me, after Bruno and DCL

    Got to love how all the experts are selling Spurs.
    lol

      No expert by any means, but looking at my current WC, Spurs are a distant memory.

      u still gt son and kane?

    Is it worth going Riederwald over Soucek to save 0.5M? Im not likely to play them as they will be bench fodder. Is Riederwald likely to play regularly, ive noticed he has started 4 games in a row. The 0.5ITB will help massively towards getting Salah back in 3Gws

    1. Brosstan

      Soucek as 8th attacker is waste of money

      1. DAZZ

        Cheers bro. Good point

  5. Stoic

    Kilman for sure.
    Between KWP and ASM

    Revised Wildcard team, I think I'm set, opinions on this??

    Martinez 4.0
    Chilwell Cancelo Justin Coufal Kilman
    KDB Ziyech Bruno Grealish Reidwelde
    Vardy DCL Watkins

    1. DAZZ

      Love it mate. Same front 8. 12/15 same. Consider double Man City defence?

      1. Ninjaa
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        Ta mate. No not really considering it mate, they've not been too solid at the back and I think id like to leave a City position free incase I fancy bringing in the likes of Foden/Sterling at a later date.

    2. Azathoth
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      Well Done.

  7. Stoic
    • 4 Years
    11 days, 23 hours ago

    Salah in the playing 11, first sub Jimi or Bamford?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      Jimenez just but would try and play both forwards

  8. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 23 hours ago

    What can go wrong with a Mane (c) ?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      He could blank

    in a dilemma whether to use my final FT to sell saiss for cresswell/digne?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      See if we get an update on Coady’s availability and whether or not Kilman will play or has taken compassionate leave before deciding on Saiss

      1. Reyson
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        for now i am starting dallas kwp and chilwell

    2. Ninjaa
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 23 hours ago

      Could be good. I cant see Saiss playing so hes only going to drop. On the other hand would 2 transfers next week be handy and more beneficial???

      1. Reyson
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 23 hours ago

        yeah that is what i am thinking. since i am looking at vardy, kdb next week. probably 2 FT really is beneficial?

      Taylor is injured. And I'm unlucky ...

    • Mane Mane Mane

    • aborg
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 12 hours ago

      Best captaincy between the following:

      A) DCL
      B) Bruno
      C) Mane
