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.

    When are we expecting DGW here?

      January

    2. Camzy

      Not until the New Year most likely. GW like 19 or something. Ages away.

      *Looks* like Blank Gameweek 18, Double Gameweek 19 because of the fixture split. And that's before we even get to the two outstanding GW1 fixtures.

    I have Reece James & Chillwell.

    They've both done well for me for this mini-stretch, but the next three is TOT, LEE, EVE; they aren't goal-shy.

    If in my position, would you lose James? Cancelo is the prospective replacement, but also looking at Castagne.

    (Other defenders are Chilwell, Coufal, Lamptey, Kilman.)

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 days, 8 hours ago

      No I would not.

      Those fixtures aren't as bad as they look and Chelsea have the best defensive form in the league.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I'm not listening to you, you captained Rashford 😉

          I guess if you have nothing better to do, James > Cancelo is probably a points positive move to make next week.

      my defence is mess but im looking to bring in Chillwell this gw just to stop the rot

        Lol still havent signed Chilwell?? Madness

    3. Tonyawesome69

      Difficult one. James looks like he has nailed the RB position and he played very well today

      unless your team is a disaster everything this season seems to have pointed towards if it ain't broke don't fix it. So maybe find something that's broke or bank em

  3. meechamspowders

    a) Watkins > vardy
    b) zaha > KDB/sterling/ferran

    Have no city cover. Even though they didn’t look great tonight, their fixtures are good. Vardy v Fulham is also a nice option to be able to have with one FT.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 8 hours ago

      I would do both transfers

    2. F_Ivanovic

      jeez how much did you have in the bank before?

    Should I still stick to the plan Son to Sterling(c)?

      Sterling is hardly an option tonight, maybe after midweek.

    Will Vardy be safe from rising tonight?

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Most likely yes

              Mendy, Button
              Chilwell, Coufal, Justin, Targett, 3.9
              KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, Jrod, Grealish
              Kane, DCL, Brewster

              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 ?

              1. TorresMagic™

                Just let them play their games, it will be obvious on Friday

                5 days, 7 hours ago

                Just 3.9 to Cancelo. I wouldn't sell Kane and Bruno for -8, if I get it right about the moves. I don't think I'd do Kane to Vardy for a hit either.

              Is it worth considering Kane --> Vardy?
              Or is this a sideways move?

                Of course it is, it might work out, or maybe not, but it’s exactly the sort of move that you need to gamble on to do well. Whether you take it past considering is up to you..Many, many others will be “considering” the same.

                Nah and not tempted at all. Players are clearly tired and midweek injuries will happen more frequently than normal. Plus Covid can strike. Best to wait.

                I'm like 99% sure I'm doing Semedo > Cancelo but I'll wait until Cancelo is about to go up before making the move.

                Not too desperate, many options out there even priced out from the first choices

                I literally have no idea what I'm doing anymore. I had plans to take a -8 to bring in double City and finally get rid of Podence but I'm almost wanting to wait another week. I might just go without City full stop and go straight back to Salah and keep Fernandes.

              2. Son + Kane - KDB + Vardy.
              Any other options looking good?
              Think I ll try and keep Barkley unless serious.

              Wow what a day, had 9 players play today though, did moderately well with a big hit, pleased so far, may tumble a bit tomorrow but pleased so far!

              However, with Rashford likely dropping tonight and looking a it off, what are the best early moves here you reckon?

              Martinez
              James - Cancelo - Chillwell
              Soucek - Rashford - Bruno - Son - Ziyech
              Kane - DCL
              __________________________________

              3.3 ITB

              A) Rashford > KDB (Although doubtful about him)
              B) Rashford > Salah (if fit) or Mane (dependent on Salah)
              C) Keep for now
              D) Something else, ideas?

              Cheers guys.

                May also bring Vardy in for a hit yet for Kane also, but playing that by here.

                  Cheers TM, seem the logical choice doesn't it.

                    Rather sell an injured player etc.

                A by a mile. City will not continue to get nothing. They had 22 goal attempts today. It will happen for them. Trust the fixture swing.

                  I do agree, just hope it happens soon for them, these fixtures they have need to be taken advantage of for them for sure.

                  Think I’d rather have Salah than KdB. Aguero may be worth a punt.

                  1. UNDERWORLD7

                    5 days, 7 hours ago

                    i would too if he's back and fit, Aguero i never really wanna take a chance on though, nowhere near the old aguero and is always too injury prone for me.

                      Yep agree, he is a risk.

                A.
                And... also Kane --> Vardy seems like a move.
                Neither Mitchell nor Dunne are starters so you'll have a problem if any of those 3 defenders don't play.

                1. UNDERWORLD7

                  Cheers man, yeah Kane > Vardy is on the cards, had that pencilled in all along. I definitely need to bolster a bench player don't i, especially over this busy xmas period.

              Hi all!How was your gw so far?Do you think that Kdb is a must for the next gameweeks?

                Best 4.5 midfielder? Was all set to get Bissouma.
                But now I notice Mendy at Leicester, and Oriol Romeo at Southampton.
                Any thoughts?

                  Bissouma should be fine, might have a bit more goal threat than Romeu. Mendy likely to be dropped when Ndidi returns.

                  What to do with Sterling.
                  Keep or sell.

                    I would keep if I had him, sell for who?

                    1. DA Minnion
                      • 8 Years
                      5 days, 7 hours ago

                      I've no liverpool at all now and also want Vardy. Kdb seems a better option too.

                    • 5 Years
                    5 days, 7 hours ago

                    I think Sterling(C) and brining in Cancelo for free could be just enoug to counter possible KDB haul.

                    1. DA Minnion
                      • 8 Years
                      5 days, 7 hours ago

                      Vardy party all the way next week.

                      1. Nanoelektronicar
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        5 days, 7 hours ago

                        I could also do Kane and Son out Vardy and KDB in for a hit, and double Sterling and KDB, but I am not sure it will pay off, both short or mid term.

                      5 days, 7 hours ago

                      I mean that is my plan. Sterling to KDB although tempting (read penalties) is probably unecessary sideways move.

                      Agree, but he’s not looking great, is he? Made a mockery of those selling Son to jump on him early.

                      Seems to be all about the penalties.

                        Could have scored 20+ last night. City just can't get it in the net.

                          Watched the game and there’s something missing. No cohesion in the midfield, Mahrez hot and cold, and Torres isn’t filling Sané‘s boots yet.

                          Hopefully an upturn in form in the CL should help.

                            Could have done with a fit Sterling. Bilva was average, Torres tried, Mahrez closed down etc.

                              Yeah agreed. A prime DSilva wouldn’t have gone amiss too 🙂

                                Very true. Aguero may help.

                    Stats are not worth the trainspotters they are written upon.

                      1. Twisted Saltergater

                        5 days, 6 hours ago

                        Ha, I did ask for stats though. Fair enough 🙂

                      Not disputing the stats mate, just feel that they’re a little misleading. As a non owner, I never felt KdB was in a dangerous shooting position.

                        Something missing with City. Silva, for my money, was the best player of the prem league era. I think City are struggling to adjust to a new way of playing. They’re not far off, but still feeling their way. I suspect they will return with a bang.

                    I can’t seem to buy Douglas.... no 3.8 defenders to select in the list... out of the league?

                      He's on loan at Blackburn till the end of the season, but he's still listed as a Leeds player on the Transfers page.

                  Who do you think will score more:
                  A) Rashford(sou) +4
                  B) Sterling(BUR)

                  Didn’t see much of him tonight..,but...Cavani looked a big step up from Martial for Utd...time will tell.

                    I don’t get why Martial plays as a striker. He’s awful at showing for the ball.

                    I understand he’s there because of Rashford but means United can only play on the counter attack. Mind you Southampton up next so that’s probably not a bad thing.

                      Cavani, to me, looks like Bruno did last season...just playing beyond the rest of that team. I’m quite certain he will land with a bang soon. Martial is just a miserable sulk.

                        Agree, awful body language.

                    Both Rashford and Martial looked poor to me. Frustrating to watch them play.

                  Why everyone seem want to sell Son? I will keep him until his form is really dipping.

                    As soon as I’d sold him, last week, I regretted it.

                    Yes I stupidly did an early transfer of Son to Bruno. Didn't want to get caught out with a sudden unexpected price rise on Bruno like we saw with KdB this week.
                    Had I waited I would have transferred Salah to Bruno instead. Will see if Kilman playing instead of Son mitigates my loss this week.
                    Going forward I suppose it's a differential not owning Son 🙂

                    I would assume because they think someone else can outscore him over the period they are going without him for.

                  Which combo from GW10, Chilwell and Cancelo already in the team
                  A. Vardy Son Werner
                  B. Kane Son Vardy
                  C. Vardy KDB Werner (-4)

                    B. City need more gameweek to convince me. Werner is more worthy if he plays up top imo.

                    Vardy, KDB or both

                    Keeping, rotating captains between the two of them, and watching the points roll in.

                    Pretty simple.

                        Why is that alarming?

                        They're on fire and I wouldn't want any other two players until further notice.

                        Spurs are top of the league.

                        Arsenal don't scare a soul, Chelsea v Spurs could go either way, Palace meh, banged up and leaky Leicester etc etc. Form over fixtures anyway.

                        They aren't going anywhere!

                  Why is nobody talking about Richarlison!? Fulham, Leeds, Burnley and back with a vengeance after his red card. The lad has hat-trick potential and is also on 12 yard duties. The ultimate differential at 4% ownership

                    It’s not Fulham anymore though because the deadline has already gone for this week. If he braces today/tomorrow then people will be talking about him.

                      That’s why he is in my team pre deadline mate...

                    Because another Everton forward already has the highest FPL ownership (58.1%) and Rodríguez is 9th. I don't want to over-invest in Everton and replacing either of those two to get Richarlison would be a sideways move.

                    Has 2 good GW after this week before a fixture swing where they face Chelsea, Leicester, Arsenal and City. Not worth a 2 week punt when there are other fires to put out.
