How Wildcarding top 10k FPL managers have prepared for Double Gameweek 19

A significant portion of Fantasy Premier League managers inside the top 10,000 overall rankings re-shaped their squads for Gameweek 16.

9.3% of those deployed the first Wildcard at the last chance of asking for the final Gameweek of 2020 – with Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) very much a key figure.

Thanks to the data on LiveFPL.net, we can analyse which other assets played a part in this squad shuffle, especially thinking of the upcoming Blank and Double Gameweeks.

Firstly, we can see that, as the Gameweek 16 deadline passed, 92.0% of top 10k managers had used the first Wildcard.

That means that just over 8.0% of those at this level proverbially ‘wasted’ it by leaving the chip unused.

Could that indicate a degree of inactivity even among the top 10k, or were there that many managers happy enough with their existing squad not to need it. Imaging that luxury is enough to make anyone envious.

As you can see from the bar chart above, we can see that, after 16 Gameweeks, 5.0% of the top 10k achieved their lofty rank without the use of even one chip.

64.6% have deployed one, almost certainly the Wildcard based on the rule of probability, while the relative lack of managers to have used more than that suggests we should see plenty Triple Captains, Free Hits and Bench Boosts when the Blank and Double Gameweeks come around.

As mentioned already, Salah was the key man on top 10k Wildcards, selected by 95.9% of these managers, the most of any asset.

He is marginally more popular than Bruno Fernandes (£11.1m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.5m), included in 95.8% and 94.6% of top 10k Wildcard squads respectively.

Despite blanking in five of the last nine Gameweeks, Son Heung-min (£9.7m) is not far behind the trio in terms of Wildcard support, chosen by 88.0% of these managers. 

Back-to-back home matches against newly-promoted opposition are sure to have influenced that decision, as well as a fixture in Blank Gameweek 18, taking Spurs to Villa Park.

Midfield is certainly an area where the top 10k have been as unanimous as possible in terms of selection, Tomáš Souček (£5.1m) selected by 70.2% of Wildcarders at this level ahead of a Double Gameweek line-up of Burnley (home) and West Bromwich Albion (home).

Apart from Bamford, the top 10k were less emphatic in the overall choices up-front. It is certainly noteworthy that Harry Kane (£11.0m) was considerably less popular in these Wildcard squads than Son with 55.7% inclusion.

Also interesting is the fact that Che Adams (£6.1m) has picked up the support of 41.7%, the value offered by a striker facing Leicester (away) and Leeds (away) in Double Gameweek 19.

Premium defenders struggled to get much of a look-in for top 10k Wildcarders, none of the top-five most-fashionable assets in this position costing more than £5.0m at the time of writing.

James Justin‘s (£5.0m) remarkable powers of recovery have helped him start and play 90 minutes in every match for Leicester this season, even between Gameweeks 15 and 16.

The top 10k have cottoned onto that, especially those Wildcarding, 62.0% choosing him ahead of a Double Gameweek 19 line-up of Southampton (home) and Chelsea (home).

Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) and Stuart Dallas (£4.7m) are in just shy of 60% of top 10k Wildcard squads, with Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) and Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m) also extensively included.

In terms of what these selections mean for future chip planning, the fact that so many popular Wildcard assets are Double Gameweekers indicates the Free Hit could receive extensive attention in Blank Gameweek 18.

In terms of how that compares with the template for the rest of the top 10k rank bracket, there are some notable exclusions.

Jack Grealish (£7.8m) is in 53.8% of squads at this level but did not feature in the Wildcard template.

The same goes for Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m), currently owned by 62.8% of the top 10k.

Meanwhile, it is clear that the Wildcarders at this level used the chip to bring their defence in line with the overall template, the same five players appearing in each matrix we have compared.

Finally, Salah is the most dangerous asset in the top 10k for Gameweek 16, backed by 54.3% for the captaincy.

That brings his effective ownership at this level to 142.8%, 46.1 percentage points higher than the second-placed in that category: Manchester United midfielder Fernandes.

It is also interesting to note how the stock of Spurs attackers has fallen, especially in the captaincy debate.

A home meeting with Fulham stood out to many as a key game for those in possession of Son and Kane – less so now.

Spurs’ own slump is likely a contributing factor as well as Fulham’s improved defensive displays.

As a result, Kane and Son were captained only by 19.8% and 13.5% of the top 10k respectively.

        Your fault for setting C and VC in the same fixture

        1. Luton_Fan
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Why is it my fault? That comment doesnt help i suggest you have more respect

            • 2 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            His point is valid. This year you need to hedge the covariance risk of potential game postponement. Having said that, I made the same mistake this week with C and VC on Kane and Son. But I won't make that mistake again

          2. DOG GOD IT - KEANE 15
            • 7 Years

            It's one of those unwritten rules of FPL ... even during normal seasons never captain 2 players from the same team in case the game is called off due to snow, rain, etc.

            Even more applicable during these strange times.

            Judging from your number you have been around for quite some time so you should probably know this.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            You weren’t asking for help, you were complaining and blaming it on luck. I suggest you gain some introspection and learn from your mistakes and move on

          4. Esalman
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Never C and VC from the same team. That is the definition of putting too many eggs in one basket.

            Do not even C and VC from two different teams in the same match.

            I personally try to avoid putting two of my big attacking players against each other. That basically dictates my long term planning in FPL.

      3. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        C and VC players from same team is asking for trouble to be fair

    3. HD7
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Grealish to Barnes or Maddy and why?

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

        Sounds like bad moves

      2. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I would hold onto Grealish

        He has the sauce - been very unlucky not to score pts

        His upcoming games give him the chance to run into spaces on the counters, which is where he is best

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          As above.. plus he plays gw 18

    4. tinear
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Have extra 0.1 for DCL Bissouma to Vardy Soucek.

      1) Hold and get more news on Everton City match
      2) Do it
      3) Only Bissouma to Soucek

      I have Kane, could also just shift him to Vardy after Leeds.

      Any opinions appreciated. Thanks

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Considering DCL's fixtures turn I would probably hold

        Even if you sell and FH him back in for the blank - you'll probably lose any value you have stored up

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I'm keeping dcl

          1. tinear
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Im not sure why I will do that. I guess keeping is not that bad for now.

        2. tinear
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Thanks. My trust on DCL is not that strong but he can wait for few more gw I guess

    5. MikeS
      • 6 Years

      Anyone worried the dgw could be another complete flop like most seasons, with player rotations and potential third wave of covid hitting fixtures?

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        They always are flops, this one will even more with covid

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Yer I agree, makes me wonder if it's worth trying to get loads of dgw transfer in when will be a huge rotation/covid risk.

          What strategy is everyone else going for? I don't really have one yet as worried about fixtures being postponed again. Might free hit gw 18 to get 11, then just leave team as normal with 8 or 9 dgw players.. could wildcard but happy with team at present, just focussed on getting full playing bench in. I think that is needed in times of such uncertainty

                Wait for a Triple GW this season to play Triple Captain.

              Leeds goals + CS for Bamford and Dallas, contributing to Johnstone not rising until next GW would be perfect.

              How likely is Che x Mci to be postponed as well?

                Very likely imo

                  Intriguing to see how this effects City assets.
                  All Cancelo, Dias & Stones are close to rising.

                  1. MikeS
                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 3 days ago

                    Think someone said they would get frozen?

                      hmm, interesting. Maybe I´ll keep Kdb if this is confirmed. thx

                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  Yeah in this case I should ship Kdb out before the next drop. Probably tomorrow

                    No I wouldn't, he won't play.. unless you can field a strong team anyway?

                Good to go for GW 17?

                  This far out, sure.
                  No Bamford is brave along with Zaha(c)

                  1. Chelsea91
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 3 days ago

                    I might change the Captain to Bruno and Bamford will struggle against Spurs i guess.

                Found out something interesting today, someone told me Frank lampard was a genius and a member of Mensa. Sure enough he has an iq just below Einstein at 160. That got me interested to see what other players had high IQ.. pique was too with an iq higher than Einstein at 170. Very bizarrely mario balotteli was one of the most intelligent too with a score of 148, strange considering how stupid Frank sounds and how thick balotteli seemed

                  Lukaku is in that lot.

                  Zouma >> Coufal (FT) ?

                    2 months, 3 days ago

                    Would you even play him?

                    1. Siva Mohan
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 3 days ago

                      would play him in GW17 as Dias may not play

                      planning with DGW in mind ..

                      1. TorresMagic™

                        2 months, 3 days ago

                        You'll probably find a better transfer by the time GW16 is over.

                  A. Balbuena
                  B. DCL >> Che/Watkins & Lamptey to a 6.1m def (Chillwell / James / Justin / Cancel ) for a -4.

                  Neto hardly mentioned yet owned by 13%... anyone thinking of bringing him in?

                    Maybe on FH18

                    Definitely in FH18

                  2 FT’s

                  Martinez
                  Zouma* Coufal* Taylor*
                  Son Salah* Mahrez Bruno*
                  DCL Bamford* Kane

                  Forster Dallas* Stones Romeu*

                  * players have dgw

                  A) Mahrez Stones Forster ➡ Robbo Soucek McCarthy -4
                  B) Mahrez Forster ➡ Raphinha Flappyhandski
                  C) Mahrez Stones ➡ Soucek TAA

                  1. TorresMagic™

                    2 months, 3 days ago

                    The outs look good especially if no City game, too early for the ins.

                7. Wizardh
                    2 months, 3 days ago

                    Got 10 this GW from Giroud and Grealish. Still have Meslier, Robbo, Dier, Alioski, Salah(c), Bruno, Son, Firmino and Bamford to go.

                    Shipped Grealish to Maddison tonight.

                    Building towards this BB team for DGW and free hitting in GW18.

                    Meslier, Fabianski
                    Robbo, Reece, Justin, Coufal, Alioski
                    Salah(c), Bruno, Rashford, Maddison, Soucek
                    Firmino, Bamford, Giroud

                    Would have got Chilwell over Reece too but that stupid injury made me instant transfer to Robbo. What do you think ?

                      James has a small hamstring injury fwiw.

                      1. Wizardh
                          2 months, 3 days ago

                          Yes I know but he should be alright for GW19, shouldn't he? If not I'll keep Dier as my only player to have one game in GW19.

                          1. TorresMagic™

                            2 months, 3 days ago

                            Good chance, no City game would really help.

                      Thoughts on this GW19 BB team.

                      Martínez | Johnstone
                      Stones | Dallas | Coufal | Taylor | Balbuena
                      Salah | Fernandes | Son | Grealish | Soucek
                      Kane | DCL | Bamford

                      Forster to Johnstone
                      & Mitchell to Balbuena over the next 2 weeks.

                      Cheers.

                          I will be yes. too many hits otherwise.

                            Fair enough, DCL is getting rare for a BB team

                            1. Gabbiadini

                              Everton will have an awaiting DGW.

                                City is a game plus 2 points, need to factor in all those other games

                                1. Gabbiadini
                                  • 3 Years

                                  Sorry, what do you mean by "plus 2 points"?

                                  1. TorresMagic™
                                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                    2 months, 3 days ago

                                    Do you expect much vs City?

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

                                      Not particularly, but he's obviously the most likely to nick a goal.
                                      I wouldn't trade him for a hit and the loss of $ personally.

                                        How many blanks would tempt you to sell?
                                        I see plenty keeping for the season regardless of returns.

                                        1. Gabbiadini

                                          2 months, 3 days ago

                                          Unsure, it would depend on who was there at the same price.
                                          Will be tempted by Ings when he returns to the lineup.

                          I also have a lot of $ tied up in Son, got him in at 8.9.

                            A few will lose Kane in 19

                              I don't see a massive difference between Kane & Vardy in gw19, not worth the hit.

                          SHU is also a nice fixture.

                            It's away but agree

                              yep.

                      Robertson in his last 6 has scored... 2, 6, 2, 5, 10, 2.
                      An average of 4.5, in that same period he has risen 0.2 and currently sits at +97.0.

                      Remarkable.

                        People trust lpool's defence, his attacking returns and they have decent fixtures with double in gw19. Also after Wednesday, he'll be the 2nd highest points defender, so it's not that ludicrous transfer/bandwagon imo.

                          His price and output does not reflect pending 0.3 rise in the last 6 gameweeks was the point I was going for.
                          Mmhm.

                            Normally people just go about the points of the previous gw.

                      2 months, 3 days ago

                      Anything standing out to change here?
                      Stones maybe if they don't have a game v Chelsea but not keen on selling.

                      McCarthy.
                      Robbo, Stones, Dallas, Coufal.
                      Salah, Son, Mane, Fernandes.
                      Bamford, DCL.
                      Forster, Lookman, Brewster, Ferguson.
                      1ft, 0.4m ITB.
                      FH 18, TC 19- Have 9 DGW'rs atm.
                      Stones + Son are my single weekers in 19 for now.

                      1. Gabbiadini

                        2 months, 3 days ago

                        Use that 0.4 to get a better def cover for Stones I think would be a good decision.

                          Just 4.3m and not many options at that price to replace Ferguson. Not interested in that kind of move.

                          Thinking- Lookman -> Soucek for stronger back-up and a better starting option. Big mistake choosing Lookman a few weeks ago.
                          Stones-> Dier. DCl-> Rodrigo other options.

                        2 months, 3 days ago

                        Who does DCL become?

                          2 months, 3 days ago

                          Maybe Rodrigo, Adams or Wood?
                          Not sure if I should sell or hold though really.
                          Have had him since the beginning.

                      KDB and Che Adams ➡ Kane and Zaha for -4?

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

                        Not for me. Che is a good option.
                        I don't like hits when one of the players being traded is more to fund something else.

                      Would you BB this team in GW19? Will have to take a -4 to get Meslier and Raphina in.

                      Martinez
                      Zouma James Coufal Balbuena
                      Son Fernandes Salah
                      Kane Adams Bamford
                      Meslier Raphina Maddison Dier

                        Looks decent.

                        yes, I think BB Gw19 is possibly the best time.

                          thinking the same route for now too.

                      Can't believe with all the filth playing in GW18, there's no 4.5m keeper besides that useless dirty Sanchez.

                      Is Mitchell now nailed? Played pretty well and solid in defence.

                      Is this good enough for BB in 19?
                      -> 5 singles
                      -> Can take a hit and do Kane to Vardy if spurs don't improve
