Huge backing for Salah captaincy as Wildcard template for DGW19 forms

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) was handed the armband by huge swathes of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 15.

The Egyptian has accrued the largest captaincy backing in a single round at this level so far in 2020/21.

A whopping 82.8% of the top 10k chose Salah as their skipper ahead of an appealing home meeting with West Bromwich Albion.

The Baggies have conceded 29 goals in 14 league matches this season, an average of 2.1 per game, while Salah has blanked just once at Anfield in 2020/21.

As a result, it is no surprise to see so many high-level managers captaining him for Gameweek 15. 

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) was the second-most popular captain among the top 10k but still only managed the support of 5.2% for his home meeting with Newcastle.

That makes for a majority of 77.5 percentage points between Salah and De Bruyne.

And those who handed the armband to the Belgian had no joy on Saturday, with the City playmaker taking only appearance and clean sheet points away from the 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, we can expect the top 10k to deploy a flurry of Wildcards in Gameweek 16 considering the chip usage for the latest round.

As you can see from the bar chart above, only 1.9% of these managers assembled a new squad for Gameweek 15 – a fact perhaps influenced in some part by the proximity to Christmas Day and a desire to leave Blank Gameweek 18/Double Gameweek 19 planning to the last possible moment.

That takes the total usage for the Wildcard to 81.6% among the top 10k with just one deadline left before the first one expires.

That means almost one in five of the top 10k have less than two days left to use the first Wildcard.

As is to be expected with some of the early frontrunners at this stage of the season, a fair chunk have already eaten into their chip allowance.

Almost one in three of this leading bunch have used two or more of their chips, with 2.9% now only having a second Wildcard in their locker.

But what of the 191 managers who played their first Wildcard ahead of the Gameweek 15 deadline?

As the graphic above illustrates, many of them have Double Gameweek 19 – and a possible Bench Boost – on their minds.

Ten of the 15-man template above have two fixtures in Gameweek 19, while Son Heung-min (£9.7m) and Harry Kane (£11.0m) have very favourable matches in the shorter term.

Almost two-thirds of the Wildcarders kept hold of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m), interestingly, although what many may have deemed a favourable match-up against Sheffield United on Boxing Day may have been his last hurrah and the blank at Bramall Lane may hasten his departure from some of these teams.

De Bruyne and Chelsea defenders are the big losers in the above squad.

As for the most-owned players in the top 10k overall, there were two changes to the ‘template’ squad above from Gameweek 14.

Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) and Reece James (£5.1m), who were both flagged with injuries before blanking at the Emirates, have been replaced by Stuart Dallas (£4.7m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.3m).

Chilwell and James’ ownerships both dropped by more than half among the top 10k ahead of Gameweek 15.

    How did martinelli play today? Lots of potential in that kid & 4.9 is very interesting.

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Good player but he isn’t assured of starts I’d wait a bit, he isn’t going up in price anytime soon, as depends how much you trust the arsenal attack and whether he’s your 7th or 8th attacker

    2. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Would consider him vs Palace for the BGW.

    3. Bram

      One tomonitor but not jump on yet - had a v good game though as did Saka

    4. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Give it 2 or 3 seasons

  2. RedAlpha10
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 16 days ago

    DCL and Grealish to Fernandes and Adams? Any other 6.2 or below Strikers you could recommend?

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Wood ?

      1. mrelpea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Yep, his fixtures for next few weeks are amazing

    2. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Like those moves. I’m keeping DCL though purely for BGW18.

    3. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Watkins.

  3. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    So far happy with my DCL ➡ Wood punt

    Hoping for a few corners later on

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 16 days ago

      How much do you trust Burnley’s service?

      1. RedAlpha10
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Wood is a good shout tho

      2. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I trust Leeds set piece defending problems more for this week 🙂

        And then he has SU and Fulham home followed by a DGW

        1. RedAlpha10
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Very good point, wood just seems a lot less glamorous than Adams so I find it hard to lean that way myself you know what I mean?

          1. PogBruno
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            Ya I wanted him for the Leeds game, there is half a chance we could see a Antonio away at Norwich last season

    2. milanista10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Glad to see another Wood owner, in fact I did the same move this week alongside TAA in for Chilwell.
      Good first day for us, hope we get some returns tomorrow 😀

  4. TimoTime
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 16 days ago

    How's this look for a -4 to free up some cash for the B/D Gw's?:

    Watkins > Wood

    KDB > Son

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Wood or Adams?

    2. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Keep Watkins

  5. Bleh
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Thoughts on this shuffling over the next few? Would allow me to save WC, BB, FH and potentially TC all for later on.

    GW16 KDB > Son
    GW17 Cresswell > Dallas
    GW18 Fernandes > KDB
    GW19 Son > Fernandes

    Team for BGW18 (7 playing)
    Martinez, Dias, Stones, Son, KDB, Kane, DCL

    Team for DGW19 (6 doublers, 5 singletons)
    Martinez
    KWP*, Dallas*, Dias, Stones
    Salah*, Fernandes*, Soucek*, KDB
    Bamford*, Kane

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 16 days ago

      How much in the bank?

      1. Bleh
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        0.0 currently - why the GW17 move is needed!

        1. RedAlpha10
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Well done you knew what I was thinking lol I guess that transfer has to be made I thought maybe you could save

          1. Bleh
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            Haha yeah, unfortunately needed. It’s a toss up between Dallas and Coufal for the double.

            1. RedAlpha10
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 16 days ago

              I own both and I trust Coufal more, Leeds like a more open game

              1. Bleh
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 16 days ago

                Cheers, I suppose Coufal does offer some attacking threat too albeit not as much as Dallas.

  6. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Is the consensus that gw19 will be the best opportunity to bench boost?
    I personally was going to save and use with a second wildcard, however, could use my 1.8m ITB over the next few weeks to build a bench.

    Forster > Johnstone
    Mitchell > Alioski
    Burke > Soucek/5.1

    What are people's thoughts?

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 16 days ago

      For me I think bench boost GW19 is definitely the smartest with many value teams like Southampton Leeds and West Ham playing

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Depends on your team. I'm building a BB for 19 personally.

    3. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      BB is not for everyone. I'm doing TC.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        BB with the second wildcard, is that your idea?

        1. Original - Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Yep

  7. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Triple spurs, almost like my GW1 team now.

    Hoping for a better luck these coming days

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Would you get rid for DGW players?

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Most probably not

    2. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Whoz the third?

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Dier

    3. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Don’t hope for Spurs do well. They’ll do well. But don’t hope for it 😉

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks for the advice 🙂

  8. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Thoughts on GW19, BB team? Anything you would change?

    McCarthy - Johnstone
    Balbuena - Coufal - Justin - Taylor - Alioski
    Salah - Son - Bruno - Rashford - Raphina
    Bamford - Adams - Firmino

  9. RedAlpha10
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Antonio update?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Hopefully fit for 19

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Even if he is fir may not start both the games ?

        1. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          True... worth a gamble if plays a game or 2 b4 (imo)

      2. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        But will he play both? I don’t think the upside outweighs the risk of bringing him in, at least not this week

  10. Sanchit

    A. Rashford
    B. Pulisic

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Depends on team plus strategy but on basis all have double 19 I would go Justin with Dallas close second

    5. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Dallas or Justin

  12. Scout15
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Who'd you rather have for DGW, Vardy or Haller?
    I was leaning to Vardy of course, but that West Ham's fixtures are just too good to ignore...

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Vardy- no guarantee with Haller as Antonio may be fit for double

    2. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      West ham fixtures looks great defensive wise, not attacking wise

      Vardy for me all day long

    3. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Haller’s on a par with Joelinton for sharp shooting- Vardy’s the quality player if money no object

    4. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Vardy + mid

      Vs

      Antonio + mane is my early thinking

      1. Scout15
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        If Antonio gives signs of solid form, that would be a really difficult choice...

    5. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Vardy of course

    6. GS456
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Vardy

    7. Scout15
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      That settles it... Cheers all!

    8. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      You know full well it’s Vardy in a straight shoot. But that’s why they’re not the same price.

  13. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Is Lewis to Justin good use of free transfer pre price rise tonight with some decent fixtures and double to come ( FH in 18)

    1. Wirbelwind
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Yes

  14. Fudgy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Kdb + DCL Vs Son + Rashy seems a no brainer

    1. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Rashford is a midfielder.. please explain

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Maybe he will change the 4.5 striker/mid

    2. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Two mids for DCL?

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Yep

    3. GS456
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Easy

  15. GS456
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 16 days ago

    Would you bench boost this in 19?

    Meslier, Mcarthy
    Justin, Zouma, Dallas, Coufal, Taylor
    Son, Salah (c), Bruno, Souchek, Grealish
    Watkins, Vardy, Bamford

    This is with a -8 in the build up. Need something like this to turn my season round

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Assuming your bench would be Grealish, Watkins, Taylor (2 games), and McCarthy (2 games); that's a pretty solid bench. Assuming they all play each of their games, they could be worth around 24 pts (that's what my model says anyway, for what that's worth). After the -8 to get there, it leaves you with a chip value of 16. Not too shabby.
      Now you just have to ask yourself how much a third Salah (TC) would be worth that week in two home games (if you have that chip as well as an option)

      1. Pommie22
          3 months, 16 days ago

          I congratulate you Sir for an awesome response to a question. Great to see input that helps. I was contemplating BB GW19 but your answer has definitely swayed me towards using my TC instead.

          1. I Must Break You
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            To be clear I wasn't trying to sway you. I have the same dilemma and haven't decided myself what I'm going to do. This is just the thought process I'm using and I hope it helps.
            There may never be a better week to use BB, and there may also never be as good a week to use TC!
            Good luck.

      In the US, and NBCSN is showing a marathon of "Premier Download." Right now, it's the Leicester City title run. I'm a Man City supporter, but I can't help but enjoy that season. Such an anomaly. (plus, I jumped on Mahrez and Vardy early in that FPL season.)

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Ah yes, the best chance Arsenal have had to win the league in the last decade... 🙁

      2. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Funny things from that season:
        - Mahrez was Leicester's penalty taker
        - VVD was a Saint
        - Wes Morgan now the oldest outfield player in the league
        - Vardy saying he wasn't going to have a party after his 11th in a row.

        The amusement value of Spurs in a 2 horse race and finishing 3rd behind Arsenal was immense

        1. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Haha! A coworker is a Spurs fan. Might have to remind him of that. 😉

      Is it worth bringing Dier in for one of these? And who would you sell? Thanks
      Zouma, Cooper, Cresswell, Bedranek, Stones

      Which two of these would you prefer to own in defence from next GW onwards?
      1. Dallas.
      2. James.
      3. Coufal.

      FH 18, TC in GW19. Don't want all 3.
      Robbo + Stones my other playing defenders. Own Dallas/ Coufal atm.

        3

      2. Bleh
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        1 for attacking threat, 3 a close second

      3. Bram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        3 whilst James has knee issues

      4. noquarternt
        • 5 Years

        1 and 3

      5. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Cheers guys. So it seems no rush to bring in James is the consensus.

      Already have Salah, Grealish, Son and Bruno...

      KDB > Martenelli / Raphinha / Saka so I can upgrade DCL > Kane for a -4?

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Raphinha, don't trust Arsenal after one decent game. They could easily go into the next GW with Pepe, Auba and Laca or Willian as a front 3.

      2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years

      3. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        As an Arsenal fan, a punt on Saka isn’t insane as long as you’ve got bench cover.

    6. Ruinenlust
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      On WC: Kane or Vardy? Can’t afford both

      1. Bleh
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Kane. Vardy seemingly a rotation risk.

        1. Sterling Archer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Vardy a rotation risk, u mad

          1. Bleh
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            Have a listen to Rodgers’ comments.

      2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        K

      3. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Probably Kane

    7. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Apart from the wonder goal I thought in general play El Ghazi was amazing today. Look at his form since he started playing a few weeks ago. When Villa fixtures turn he is straight in my team at about 2 mil less than Grealish.

      1. Wirbelwind
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Rotation risk with barkley back?

        1. Bram
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          yup

      2. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Can’t imagine he’s fully nailed, but at that price is a great option.

      3. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        If I was Smith I would make a place for him somehow, he looked different class.

      4. Darnell Nurse
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Apart from the wonder goal he did nothing. It was all on Grealish/Watkins

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          Ok did you watch the game ?

        2. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          And I own Grealish and Watkins so no bias.

    8. Wirbelwind
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Bit at a loss wrt DGW team

      A) keep James
      B) keep kdb
      C) keep grealish
      D) keep dcl

      Leaning toward A & D, and use BC for upgrading lewis and brewster

      1. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Think you’ve got it

      2. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        I would keep A and B
        But A and D is good too
        Your options frees up so much more cash so it’s hard to compare.
        With the extra cash A and D as you said is probably best.

      3. Bram

          1. Wirbelwind
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            Would lose out on 0.2 when I rebuy after the dgw. Doable

      Martinez Steer
      Cancelo James Chilwell Cresswell CTaylor
      Salah KDB Bruno JWP Bowen
      Watkins Wilson Brewster

      2FT 0.5ITB

      Working towards a BB19 as you can probably tell. What’s the best move this week?

      A) Steer out?
      B) KDB + Striker -> Mid + Vardy?
      C) Something else?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        B Soucek

      2. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        B with Kane rather than Vardy?

      3. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Similar situation. I'm most likely doing B. KDB is going to Son for sure, which can get me Brewster to Vardy with one more -4 downgrade elsewhere (Mahrez to Soucek in my case).
        Your defense is more expensive than mine but I like it.

        1. noquarternt

          Thanks guys.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Looking at TC for GW19 (Keeping single game week players Son and Kane)

      McCarthy
      Robertson, Coufal, Taylor
      Salah, Fernandes, Son, Raphina
      Kane, Vardy, Bamford

      Subs: Forster, Soucek, Mitchell, Douglas

      1. noquarternt

        Yeah looking excellent.

      Martinez 4.0
      Targett Lamptey Cancelo Dier Lewis
      Gros Zaha KDB Mahrez Son
      Werner DCL Bamford

      1.6 ITB 1 FT

      can't do Werner to Kane as 0.1 short.

      With Lewis not starting and Lamptey injured I could end up having to have a villa keeper and defender for next gameweek which is annoying.

      Gros and Mahrez need upgrading at some point although I think Mahrez will start mid-week

      any ideas i'd love

      1. Bram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Lamptey to Taylor/Lowton to pay for Werner to Kane and lets you bench Targett

    12. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      Best midfielder under 5.7 who plays in the SGW?

      1. Bram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Podence maybe

    13. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 16 days ago

      KDB likely to avoid a drop tonight? Currently on -92.8

      1. Sterling Archer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        Hds staying for now, still reckon he will end up a top points scorer

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        He will drop and be close to another drop by the time the next GW roles around.

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          The question is about today. He's likely to transfer him out after today's matches.

      3. Bram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        May be close but I suspect he's being inflated by wc transfers and will survive - best guess only though!

    14. nerd_is_the_werd

      KDB + DCL --> 19.9

      Looking at Kane (11.0) and Rashford (9.5) but can't afford it.
      Any suggestions?

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years

        Soucek

      Werner to Kane -4?

      1. Bleh
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 days ago

        How can you still have Werner?

        1. baines is god
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 16 days ago

          cus he's playing for a team that before today were the 2nd highest scorers in the league, as their star striker and penalty taker. just not performing, and after his early subbing and risk of rotation now i've had enough.

          1. Bleh
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            You must have the patience of a saint! I would definitely get rid.

      2. nerd_is_the_werd
        • 1 Year

        Sold Werner last week and never looked back.

          Phew! Will probably still get rid tomorrow but can wait it out now to see if any injuries.
