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.

      Hits don't count for the qualification

      1. Milkman Bruno
          4 months, 17 days ago

          What?! Really?

            Yes, qualification is based off GW rank which doesn't count hits

            1. Milkman Bruno
                4 months, 17 days ago

                That’s not right...

                    4 months, 17 days ago

                    I never realised it though so good to know. They obviously count after qualification though right?

                      Yes after qualification they count but not for the first week. That is to give everyone who wants to prioritize the cup a fair and even start.

                      Yeah starting next week, they count in the head to head cup match. I always found it bizarre not to include hits in GW rank and cup qual..

                          4 months, 17 days ago

                          Yeah, I agree, it is bizarre.

            Who would you KEEP for Raphinha in order to fund signing Vardy for DGW19?

            a) Grealish (2.5M ITB)
            b) Son (0.0 ITB)

              Defer decision until DGW19

              I messed this up...

              Selling Grealish/Son to Raphinha.

                Sell grealsih

          3. Milkman Bruno
              4 months, 17 days ago

              Sorry for the repost bottomed earlier.

              I have exact funds. Grealish and Mings dropping and Soucek Vardy likely to rise.

              Mings, Grealish and Adams to Mitchell, Soucek and Bardy -4?

                I'd do it

                This situation is ideal to save all 3 chips for later dgws

                  It might only get worse
                  Imagine the scenes if City game in gw18 gets postponed

                  4 months, 17 days ago

                  Some chips need to be setup though. BB doesn't get any easier to play. It's too late for most WC teams now. Locked in for the FH18/BB19

                  4 months, 17 days ago

                  Salah / Mane (tc) dgw19 is too could to skip. Altough not much to gain.

                  1. S.Kuqi

                    • 8 Years

                    too good*

                        4 months, 17 days ago

                        Manè TC last season while I owned Salah ended up in 3 points! Definitely the higher ceiling though

                          Wish I could forget that.

                              4 months, 17 days ago

                              Yeah I TC Kane the year before for 3 also 😆

                  2. S.Kuqi

                    • 8 Years
                    4 months, 17 days ago

                    If fit Pulisic better option than Rashford for the dgw?

                    1. Milkman Bruno
                        4 months, 17 days ago

                        Rashford more likely to play both games

                        1. S.Kuqi
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          4 months, 17 days ago

                          Yeah. He is probably more safe

                        • 8 Years
                        4 months, 17 days ago

                        Both are not ok for me but Rash for the long run too

                        • 7 Years
                        4 months, 17 days ago

                        I think I would take Rash over Pulisic right now.

                      • Kane and Ablett
                          4 months, 17 days ago

                        I am planning to use my Free Hit for GW18.

                        I was hoping to make two free transfers in GW18 in anticipation for the DG's in GW19, and then activate my Free Hit. My question is, if you use your free transfer(s) that week before using a Free Hit, do they count toward your Free Hit or will those players be on your team permanently?

                          Doing the free hit will cancel your 2 transfers in GW18 prior to activating your FH if that b is what you're asking and I've read it correctly

                            They are on the free hit.

                              This is ridiculous. I took a hit to bring in a city defender after matip and lamptey messed up.
                              When city play again we should get the points and not the new owners who get the chance to buy them(only for the Everton vs city fixture)

                                Rubbish luck mate. I've got to ship KDB (was going to anyway) & Cancelo now - who was looking a great pick.

                                  I bought in Cancelo this week over Dier. Well done me.

                                Burke -> Smith Rowe?

                                lol just to improve my bench nothing elese to do beofre I FH in 18 really

                                  I’d see if smith Rowe plays again this week, martinelli probably a better bet

                                KdB => Mane

                                Have exact cash to do this move.

                                Rest of midfield is Salah Son Bruno Grealish

                                  Sounds good

                                  I would use the transfer on Grealish to El Ghazi

                                  Would you sell KDB now that he most probably has DGW in GW19 too?

                                Those that advocate against doing early transfers - what news are you waiting to hear on that would defer you from your original plan?

                                I tend to leave transfers until the deadline, however, I am planning to pull the trigger on my 2FTs tonight in prep for DGW19, otherwise funds won't stretch that far.

                                KDB + Brewster 》 Vardy + Soucek

                                  4 months, 17 days ago

                                  News of any postponed matches

                                  Those are my planned moves.

                                  Have to ship Cancelo too - but can possibly wait on that one.

                                  I'll probably do it tonight.

                                    I am probably pulling the trigger tonight. Both Vardy and Soucek rising

                                  Depends on your plans tho but i don't see a reason why you don't do it now before Vardy and souc rise and enjoy switching the captaincy over him ... Even for a hit

                                    Cheers, will probably do it tonight

                                  Wait for news I think. What if they throw the city game into the DGW?

                                  1. Stormbringer22

                                    Even if they did, can't guarantee that KDB plays both games. Also, rumours that the Chelsea game might be postponed as well

                                  Covid outbreaks.

                                  It rhymes with Bovid Pineteen

                                    4 months, 17 days ago

                                    Worth rolling the dice then - there could be more postponements, rotations and injuries this time of year so keeping your bench loaded allows for early transfers

                                  At this point anyone who still owns KDB should keep as City will have DGW in GW19. Thoughts?

                                    Not confirmed. Crellin suggested 24, 26 and 27 as their DGWks

                                      7 games in 4 weeks??

                                    Chelsea game also at risk. Still keep if its called off?

                                    That would be genius, if MC had two games that week.

                                    Where do you see that city will have DGW in GW19?

                                      Quote: 'The fixture, which was set to take place at Goodison Park, will now need to be rearranged in the new year and City's stars of past and present have been reacting to the news'

                                      From the link below:

                                      I guess they are referring for either GW18 or 19. What do you think?

                                        Not sure, seems like it would kind of soon to reschedule. Although I am not an expert in this area. https://twitter.com/BenCrellin

                                        I'll sell KDB but I MAY keep Cancelo.

                                        Brighton hame isn't until 13th Jan, so even with COVID could be eligible.

                                        May change my mind though.

                                        Why doesn't Cavani get any starts yet?

                                            Solskjaer said in his last pc that Cavani will start more than he doesn’t. Expect to see him starting more often. Martial and Rashford wide with Fernandes in the hole.

                                                I thought he said the opposite.? Thought he said Cavani will have to wait for starts?

                                                I have owned Amartey pretty much all season. He has been injured but had gotten himself into the first XI before his injury and is now a fringe player. With the games so close I imagine he will get one of them.

                                                    That's true but not necessary is it? Dont know who else I would get...

                                                  Sorry not done the maths but might this work?

                                                  Matip Grealish to Robertson Raphinha

                                                    Think I wanna get rid of Grealish at the last moment tbh!

                                                  Matip stands out - need to see how long he will be out for. Will likely only find out from Klopp later this week. Rest loooks good so Forster move can be made. Riedewald --> Soucek also an option.

                                                    Very true. Guess I can wait. Did just think of Kane to Vardy though!

                                                Everton request full disclosure of all the information Man City provided to the Premier League so they can understand why the decision was taken to postpone the match.

                                                  Trying to get 3 points without playing the match I reckon

                                                    Think they simply want to have all the information at hand to understand why they reached that decision. Rightly so.

                                                    Too right, there needs to be clear rules on this - otherwise teams will react differently when they lose x number of players . The league should set rules and to be honest I think with squads of 25 losing 10 played should be the bar.

                                                    Raphina or Soucek is a toughie

                                                      See how both go this week.

                                                      As a Soucek owner you almost kind of hope West Ham go 1-down early as he gets into scoring positions even more than normal.

                                                      Kane is the best pick next week. Sell at your peril

                                                          Hard to say. You going to FH in GW18? I was all set for Vardy coming in soon too, but hasn't looked great. Might still be worth it for GW19 and then decide if you want Kane back (assuming you don't want Kane for GW18).

                                                    Would ruin all the planning then.

                                                    I would prefer to hold off on transfers, but just saw that Grealish/DCL going to drop and Vardy going to rise. Originally planned on bringing in Vardy for DGW, although he hasn't looked great recently.

                                                    C) DCL/Grealish -> Vardy/Soucek for -4

                                                    I'm tempted to do A and will reassess later in the week, might miss out on 0.2.

                                                      Fabianski has good DGW fixtures, but long term probably Pope.
