Top 10k FPL managers refuse to ditch Kane and Son double-up for Gameweek 9

The top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers have largely kept faith with Tottenham Hotspur despite their recent fixture-swing.

And it looks as if they have already been vindicated in that decision.

65% of these managers held onto the attacking double-up of Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) for a tricky meeting with Manchester City, each one of them registering an attacking return.

Specifically, 86.7% of this rank bracket took Kane into Gameweek 8, his ownership at that level shrinking only as low as 85.4% for Saturday’s visit of the Citizens to north London.

Counting his yellow card, Kane scored four points thanks to his assist for Giovani Lo Celso‘s (£6.9m) second-half finish, extending his run without a blank to eight matches.

And, despite the difficulty of this match on paper, 26.2% of the top 10k still trusted Kane with the captaincy. Only Bruno Fernandes (£10.7m), backed by 28.3%, convinced more managers in that bracket to captain him than the Spurs man.

That ensured Kane still wields significant power in the top 10k, offering effective ownership at that level of 111.4%, the most of any player.

With Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) and Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) enticing Fantasy managers in midfield, it is unsurprising that Son Heung-min (£9.5m) suffered a higher loss of owners in the top 10k.

The South Korean boasted 87.1% ownership at this level for Gameweek 8, which dropped to 74.1% for Gameweek 9.

However, the majority of his backers kept faith in Son, despite the Manchester City fixture, as he remains the most popular midfielder in the top 10k.

These managers were richly rewarded at the first hurdle, as Son scored 10 points in Gameweek 9, finding the net, keeping a clean sheet and earning two bonus.

Courtesy of Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.3m) enforced absence, Fernandes bursts into the template for Gameweek 9, already selected by 48.9% of the top 10k.

He has already racked up significant sway at this level, considering that he was the most captained by top 10k managers for Gameweek 9. That made for effective ownership of 77.2%, the second-highest of any FPL player.

An 11-point score for Gameweek 9 means Fernandes has already made an impact on the upper echelons of the Fantasy rankings.

With Liverpool defenders falling even further by the wayside this season, it is no shock to see the majority of re-modelling in the top 10k came at the back for Gameweek 9.

Chilwell, Werner start for Chelsea as Wilson fails to make Newcastle squad

Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) remains the most-popular defender in the top 10k although his ownership at this level swelled considerably from 34.6% to 49.1%.

Romain Saïss (£5.2m) has left the top-five defenders among top 10k managers, replaced as the third-most-popular by Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.6m).

Meanwhile, even Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) has dropped out of the top five, Max Kilman (£4.3m) finally creeping in, sat in 23.9% of top 10k teams.

Sunday’s meeting between Fulham and Everton at Craven Cottage has boosted the Fantasy potential of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m).

His top 10k ownership has increased by 8.4 percentage points over the international break while he arrived in Gameweek 9 as the third-most-popular captain option at this level (12.4%).

The number of managers in the top 10k who are yet to deploy a chip continues to get smaller.

After the Gameweek 9 deadline, just 28.6% of these have kept their entire complement intact, while 45% have now used at least one chip.

As you can see, the Wildcard was the most popular of those for Gameweek, used by 6.9% of the top 10k.

Interestingly, we see the continued commitment to Spurs players even here, with Kane kept by 59% of top 10k Wildcards and 41.7% of such managers retaining Son.

    Kane to Vardy seems the obvious move then

    1. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Is it?

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      I’ve not totally ruled it out, but I doubt he’ll outscore Kane by much over the next few, so would be a waste of two transfers. Perhaps if he looks sharp tomorrow...

  2. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    12 days, 5 hours ago

    If you could only get 1 for the next few who would you get?

    A) vardy
    Or
    B) kdb

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      A

    2. lugs
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Vardy since there is a good chance KDB will be rested for one of those "easy" games

    3. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Vardy for sure

    4. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Coming down to this for me too. Rather keep Son than Kane but also rather KDB than an attacker. But not keen on a hit so might get Vardy.

    Points count everyone? Think I got a bit lucky with 61!!

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      40 points.

      Took a -8 so not all bad

      1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Decent, how many to play?
        I’ve only got DCL left, going to be a long rest of GW

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          4 with DCL, Robertson, Coufal and Podence left to play.

    2. Vazza
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        How many players do you have left?

        1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          Only DCL 🙁

      • FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        38 with a daft Rashford cap when I owned Bruno too trying too hard to be different, but rash was unlucky today

        1. JohnnyMarrsGuitar
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          At least you know what you did wrong... for me the only Utd player to own at the moment is Bruno, too much £ tied up in Rashford with all the quality midfielders available

          I thought the likes of Martial (in particular), Rashford and to a lesser extent Mata (so under-valued) actually looked a level below Bruno tonight he must have been very frustrated...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          I thought Rash was nowhere near it tonight. Hugging the touch line and never looked up for it

      • Warby84

        55 free hit...

        1. JohnnyMarrsGuitar
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          Very nearly did Free Hit due to the amount of doubtful players

          Would have temporarily binned: Chilwell & Son amongst others and would have certainly brought in Ziyech & Werner... I reckon bullet dodged so far

      • Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        48 with 4 to go, there is a chance 1 of those 4 will be Lamptey off the bench though

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1. lugs
            • 3 Years
            12 days, 5 hours ago

            no Kilman is my 1st sub, Lamptey is my 2nd, but i already have Havertz as a non runner in my team, and have kenny starting who might not play either 🙁

          Nice! I’ve gone from 1.2mil in GW7 to 198,000 now! (Will decrease after tomorrow’s/Mondays games).
          Very easy to play catch up around this time if you make sensible moves

            Wow, nice move up! I peaked for my season in GW1 and then moved below 1m for every GW since then! Tricky season so far

      • james 101
        • 8 Years

        45. But 5 still to play.

        17 (-4)

        Didn't think this season could get any worse but here I am. Hahaha

    3. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Did TAA, Salah, Foden to Coufal, Ziyech, Bruno (C) for -8.

      Moderate success or slight failure?

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

        how is that possibly a failure lol

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          Just frustrated with Ziyech blank.

          1. jia you jia you

            • 4 Years
            12 days, 5 hours ago

            me too, plus I had Werner(c) which was unlucky and Rashford too... ah well, could've been worse

      2. Sloane426
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 3 hours ago

        You took out 3 players who aren’t playing. How could it possibly not be good?

    4. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      40 on FH with 4 to go is disappointing...Werner(C) gets a monster haul on another day, just wasn't his day unfortunately... need Everton to win big to salvage it!

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

        oh and welcome back to my team Foden, Lamptey, Coady, Bellerin, Burke and Dunne... yuck lol

      2. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Werner genuinely could have had an absolutely massive haul

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

    5. jernej93
      • 6 Years

      Kane & Ziyech or Werner & Son ? 🙂

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        The latter

      2. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Kane/Ziyech

      3. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Kane Zyiech over season will score more points combined

    6. FF Dirtbag
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Thoughts on Martial - > Vardy on a FT? If all looks well tomorrow obviously...

      Current team: 1 FT and 1.7m ITB
      Martinez
      Reguillon Chilwell Coufal
      Fernandes Son Ziyech Grealish
      DCL Martial Kane

      Forster; Mitchell, riedewald, KWP

      1. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Absolutely. I would make that transfer twice if I could

    7. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Any Aguero punts for the next 2? Could be a hat trick in there somewhere?

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Monitoring him as I may bring in him or Vardy next week. Best wait til after the European games midweek

      2. Arctic monkeys
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        With the amount of options available, not sure it's worth it

        1. Arctic monkeys
          • 7 Years

          Are you gettin any City next GW ?

        • 2 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        It against Burnley. They’ve got their defence back now. They won’t score many, but neither will they conced to many either.

        1. SuperG
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          Concede too many.

      5. Olson
        • 6 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Aguero was never that fast up to speed after injury when he was a young man

    8. Camzy

      Tough H2H opponent this week.

      Who wins?

      Him: Vestergaard, Podence, Rodriguez
      Me: Semedo, Jota +1 point

      I'm not loving my chances here. Pressure on Jota to deliver.

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Jota 7 points

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Rodriguez has the potential to knock you out of the park.

        Will Vestergaard's streak of returns end?

      3. SuperG
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Have a feeling jrod is going to make a lot of non-owners rather upset this gw

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          Yeah he could dish some serious damage out. We will see. I picked Jota over Rodriguez though so hopeful that he is the better pick.

        2. Olson
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          They have only conceded twice once in the last five games. Hardly the strongest opposition but they are not goals conceded whipping boys on recent form

          I don't see this being a cruise

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

        Jota will haul

    9. Atletico Junior
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 5 hours ago

      Who do you think is the Best Under 4.8M def?

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Maybe Konsa with his fixture run

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Targett.

      3. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        I like Konsa for a few of the opponents coming up (headed chances).

        Alternatives in Cofaul/Masuaku, Targett, Vestergaard/KWP.

      4. Atletico Junior
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        Thanks for input. Was between Coufal and Target, but I see a general preference for A.Villa defenders due to fixtures. Also, could use the spare cash if picking Targett...

    10. sully29

      Bruno Fernandes has created the most chances in the Premier League this season (26)

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years
        12 days, 5 hours ago

        thing about Bruno is United can be abject and he can miss a penalty and still return double figures.

        United can't keep him down. He can't even keep himself down

        He's basically immortal

        1. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          12 days, 5 hours ago

          I got him in this week btw. Your relentless Bruno promotional campaign finally got to me.. lol. Salah COVID was the final push. Captained him too so pretty happy with that. Cheers!

          1. Olson
            • 6 Years
            12 days, 5 hours ago

            Grim game. Grim penalties. 11 points.

            Away games next, when apparently he's good...

            1. Bojam
              • 3 Years
              12 days, 5 hours ago

              Yeah. Utd are pretty shocking. No complaints from me though. Happy it didn't involve ditching the Spurs assets either. Will have to figure out how to get back Mo soon.

        Bruno was exceptional as usual today. Tremendous vertical passes and was all over the park

      If Hamez look poor again tomorrow I'll be tempted.

          I think it's either Son or Grealish actually.

          Probably Grealish because of his lower price and 90 mins GTD.

          Not so sure about that. He's been a bit off lately. Hoping Richarlison back will help him. Otherwise upcoming fixtures from GW11 aren't good aswell.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Factually incorrect.

          It's Zouma followed by Bamford.

          Started the season well but has tailed off (injuries, etc.). Will be interesting to see if he can pick it up again over the next few weeks. Fixtures look good short-term and Everton have most of their main players back now. Hoping for a big haul from him and DCL tomorrow.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Grealish then.

          I would save for a week. Let’s you bring in Salah + another for free the following week - Liverpool have some nice fixtures on the horizon and he’s probably the best player in the game to own. Obviously depends on your bench etc though.

            1. Vazza
                12 days, 5 hours ago

                Captain Bruno saved my wildcard this week. Having doubts about KDB though. City looked horrific. Classic form vs fixtures dilemma in store...

                    City will be good and they were slightly unlucky not to score. But there are plenty of viable options elsewhere so no rush to bring in City players imo

                    moves you made are fine going forward and will pay back- and your score good with 5 to play so don’t know why you think it is a horror.

                      The game didn't help as his left foot isn't great. Sterling on the wing may help.

                    Have many of you captained a defender at some point this season?

                    With the heavy hitters being unpredictable, it almost seems tempting to put the armband on a player who would get 8 points (after doubling) simply for not conceding to an opponent like Burnley or Fulham. Then he could get additional attacking and/or bonus points too.

                      No, Salah 5 times, Son, Kane, Bruno and Auba once.

                      Turned out ok with 172 points in 9 gws.

                      You're forgetting how insanely high scoring PL games were at the start of the season. 0 clean sheets. Everyone sold off all their Pool and premium defenders.

                      I don't think very many people captained a defender period. The only defender I might consider capping is TAA. I'm looking for high ceiling picks with my C and willing to risk a few 2s and 3s for it.

                      If you get 2,15,1,13. You're doing better than 6,7,6,6

                        12 days, 5 hours ago

                        That's reasonable. I captained TAA, Doherty, and Lundstram once each last season, but no defenders yet this season.

                        Chilwell does seem to get a decent number of votes in the captain polls. I feel like Cancelo and Castagne could have double-digit hauls in them during the upcoming run of fixtures, while I've lost a lot of trust in KDB.

                      I don’t think I’ve ever captained a defender. They can play really well but just always one kick away from losing their CS...and that can be even when their team is dominant.

                        Well yeah, it has to be someone with excellent attacking potential and a great fixture -- no Shane Duffys.

                      Me- I am the dumb guy that did this!

                      (1) picked the best defender from 19/20 season
                      (2) playing at home
                      (3) playing against a promotion club
                      (4) the defender takes corners and free kicks
                      (5) his team was highly, highly favored

                      Then Leeds scored 3 on Liverpool and since TAA has been a Dunce

                        That was unlucky, I'm not sure it was such a terrible idea. I got 20 points from Trent last season when I captained him. It was GW23 right before the double during their great run of clean sheets. I found it weird that people were talking about captaining him in a DGW when most of them wouldn't do so in a regular GW.

                        On the other two occasions, I got 12 points (CS but nothing more) from Doherty and a blank from Lundstram.

                    Planning to ship 3.9 to Joao Cancelo and go either Sterling KDB double up with Watkins for -8 or just go Kane to Vardy for a hit? What do you think?

                      Villa have been massively overperforning goals scored and Watkins involvement is unimpressive

                      I’m in a similar situation, I have Lamptey and just had to move Trent to Cancelo.. Now I’m stuck with Brewster, so either I take a -4 on defence on take a gamble on Vardy C -4..

                    I know it's very early but barring injuries who would you prioritize getting in with this lot? Bruno, Salah, Ziyech/Werner, Chilwell, etc

                      Foden to Ziyech looks nice.. would have take a hit for the likes of Fernandes/Salah

                        Ziyech is a proper baller!

                      Coady will be back but defense looks thin with Lamptey suspended..

                        yup it will be thin for sure, might end up taking a hit or two at end of week yet

                    The stats don’t lie. A good job done by Jose https://members.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/my-stats-tables/view/3846/ Arranged by collective ICT threat for the whole team.

                    More worrying for those that sold Son and/or Kane is that they still come away with pts.

                      if that means Vardy (c) then yes probably

                        an educated reply is so out of character for me, sorry

                      Vardy (c) ?....then it’s a yes.

                    Ah man Blackbox was great. Watching Mark take out Son for KdB was the money shot.

                      best FPL show around, although it wasn't a patch on previous episodes apart from when Granville popped in on the comments asking if they were both drunk... gold lol

                        Agreed. What I love about previous is that they don't fixate on their teams and specific transfers but talk more broadly about trends and strategy etc. But given the circumstances it was just really good fun

                          FPL wire is good too, no messing, very structured and informative... they are the only two I bother with really, more than enough info from those two weekly vids 🙂

                            I'll give it a go. I quite like FPL FML occasionally for light relief from all the stats busting
