Captain free-for-all set to re-shape top 10k FPL managers as Wildcards remain intact

Fantasy Premier League managers are set for an intriguing captaincy battle in Gameweek 17, especially those currently ranked inside the top 10,000.

At that level of the game, four different players have soaked up at least 20% support for the armband, which could lead to a weekend of significant green and red arrows.

Spurs’ meeting with Leeds is the most popular match of the weekend with the top 10k but there was also interest in Manchester United and Liverpool’s Gameweek 17 fixtures.

As you can see, Son Heung-min (£9.7m) proved to be the most fashionable Gameweek 17 captain among the top 10k in the end.

Despite attracting votes from only 19.1% of votes in the latest Fantasy Football Scout captain poll, 26.8% of 2020/21’s highest-performing managers handed him the armband for an appealing clash with Leeds.

The Whites’ last four matches have featured an average of 5.3 goals, a statistic that has evidently also influenced the 23.3% who captained Harry Kane (£11.0m).

That was marginally more than the 20.4% of Fantasy Football Scout readers who voted for the Spurs striker in our captain poll.

However, it is of particular note that the relatively routine winner of that ballot Bruno Fernandes (£11.2m) had to make do with a bronze medal in terms of support among the top 10k.

Just 21.9% of them chose the Manchester United man as their Gameweek 17 captain for a solid 10-point haul against Aston Villa

Nevertheless, Fernandes is still the most powerful asset among the top 10k for Gameweek 17, offering an effective ownership of 114.3% among the top 10k.

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) is not far behind the Manchester United man in that regard.

He may be only the fourth-most captained among the top 10k for this round but his effective ownership of 111.0% is still ominous for any not in possession of the Egyptian.

Son is the more dangerous Spurs asset for non-owners, considering he is the third and final asset with more than 100% effective ownership in the top 10k.

However, those worried about not having Kane for Gameweek 17 might be relatively (the keyword here) relieved to see his effective ownership standing only at 70.5%, lower than Patrick Bamford‘s (£6.6m).

A small portion of top 10k managers have pulled the trigger on the second Wildcard at the first time of asking.

After 9.3% of them used up their first Wildcard last time out, it 

perhaps suggests considerably fewer of the top-level managers have decided to get a new team in preparation for Double Gameweek 19.

We saw just 0.7% usage for Wildcards in the top 10k for Gameweek 14, 1.9% in Gameweek 15, 9.3% in Gameweek 16 and now 1.8% for Gameweek 17.

That adds up to just 13.7% top 10k managers preparing for Double Gameweek 19 with a Wildcard.

So, for all the talk of this tactic in the community, often combined with the view to Free Hit in Blank Gameweek 18, it means 86.3% of these managers were happy to approach the upcoming ‘chip season’ using only their free transfers.

Of course, some of these managers might use the Wildcard in Double Gameweek 19 (doing so in Blank Gameweek 18 seems unlikely) but that would, of course, prevent them from deploying a Bench Boost or Triple Captain.

That said, the most recent Wildcard template is still an important frame of reference for all Fantasy managers.

Fernandes (95%), Bamford (86.7%) and Salah (81.7%) are the must-haves, it would seem; unsurprising considering their Double Gameweek 19 fixtures.

However, 67.2% of this week’s top 10k Wildcarders are still interested in Son despite just one match in that round.

With 41.7% of these managers securing the services of Kane, it is clear that the argument of not overlooking single Gameweek players in a Double Gameweek is one shared by some at this level. After all, Spurs travel to face Sheffield United that week, the Premier League’s worst side this season.

And, of course, it shows plans to avoid Double Gameweek blinkers in the build-up to one either. Son and Kane face an obliging Leeds defence this weekend and boast a fixture in Blank Gameweek 18.

Meanwhile, Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) and Tomas Soucek (£5.2m) are the key budget enablers for those preparing for Double Gameweek 19, featuring in 55.6% and 43.9% of top 10k Wildcard squads in Gameweek 17.

The relatively differential options include Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m), Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m), all included in between 20% and 26% of top 10k Wildcard squads.

There is some interesting disparity between the latest Wildcard template and the matrix of most popular players in the rest of the top 10k.

Andrew Robertson (£7.4m) appears in 31.7% of their squads but was not among the top-five most-fashionable defenders by those who Wildcarded for Gameweek 17.

Meanwhile, there is a gap of 13.2 percentage points between Son’s ownership among the top 10k as a whole and those who acquired his services on Wildcards at this level.

And it seems as if Jack Grealish (£7.7m) owners are at something of a crossroads. The most recent batch of Wildcarders are not too fussed with the Villa man (which was also the case for Gameweek 16) but he remains in 42.6% of squads at this level.

However, his stock has fallen significantly. In Gameweek 15, 68.5% of the top 10k owned Grealish. That number has fallen by 25.9 percentage points in just two Gameweeks.

    A. Vardy & Bowen
    B. Watkins & Rashford
    C. Martial & Barnes

      Do they have to play both? In that case B looks like the obvious choice

    2. FantasyHero

      If Kun starts this gw then no doubt d

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yes after FT. Used it as had exact cash for Taylor -> Stones.

        1. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years

          Not to bad 8 players is pretty ok

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Not good enough as 8 including Bissouma, but you can gamble by this one.

    Anyone want to share some bench boost success stories? Ive had 0 luck with it in the past and Im convinced it can hurt your total score in the long run more than help it 🙁

    1. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I do agree if you spend to much transfers and hits of planning it ,I had some horror one's in the past. But did also get some decent ones with 27 32.this year is a bit different I was setting up to have an ok bench so hope for 19 with 12 doubles and 2 spurs it should be pretty ok to bb what about yours?

      1. Hot Fuzz

        Forget to add 1 wolf player*** my bad

        1. Alisson WondHaaland
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          With this weeks transfers, Ive commited to a 15DGW player bench boost. I wont have any Spurs or City assets, Spurs Im fine with since their fixtures arent amazing post DGW but City worries me a bit

      I remember scoring a 168 on BB, including massive hauls from Suarez and Yaya Toure... it was a huge boost! It's just a bit off-putting with all this Covid nonsense... but it's gonna be around all season. I really dont think it's going to hurt your team... bring in the likes of Soucek and Coufal who can easily be downgraded to fodder once their fixtures turn

    How was Antonio yesterday? Good punt for the double?

    1. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Didn't see the game myself, but I have him earmarked as a possible Wilson replacement in 19.

  5. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Best move here? Currently have no keeper this week, but also only have 8 DGWers for 19, so need to only bring in DGWers for the next 2 weeks if wanting to max out on them (happy to go with 10 + Son).

    A) Dier -> Stones
    B) McCarthy & Cancelo -> Martinez & Stones
    C) McCarthy & Salah -> DDG & Sterling

    xxx
    Bellerin, Cancelo, Dier, Targett
    KDB, Bruno, Son, Martinelli
    Wilson, Watkins

    McCarthy, Forster, Mitchell, Bamford, Salah
    Bank 0.0m, 2FT

    1. Weeb Kakashi

      As far as i remember you were supposed to FH in 19 right?

      1. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yeah that was the original plan, but with the postponed games for MCY, MUN and AVL being moved I can now avoid playing the FH and get 11 starters in 19 without taking a hit.

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          *11 DGWers (not starters) in 19

        2. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          A looks legit but not sure Stones is a nailed starter. Laporte is a too good enough defender to be on the bench. So instead il be going Diaz.

          1. Jinswick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yeah he's a risk I guess, although Pep has said he's now first choice and they are keeping clean sheets so I think he'll start most for now. Reckon I just go without a keeper this week?

            1. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Yes its fine. Dont see a cs except for DDG... But i dont want him for longer than dgw. Too costly

  6. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Would you sell Son for the dgw 19 for a dgw player like Bowen Pulisic or Raphinha?? If it allows funds to get Vardy or extra City defender.?

    1. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Looking at this also. Have a bit of value tied up in Son and with him having shu I'm tempted to keep.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I think the coming games after the dgw are a bit tough for Son. I have been looking at Pulisic/Ziyech and they have better fixtures even after the dgw. Plus it gives funds to upgrade elsewhere.

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yep that's true. Worth looking at Rashford also imo.

            Good luck.

    The epl has the worst officiating. Utd can’t stop cheating too. What a shame.

    Too bad they won’t even win the league despite this

    1. Dreams

      As a Liverpool fan, I hope your prediction turns out true.

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        They can’t win the league. Ole was feeling like a boss last night after the game. It was so annoying 😆

        1. Dreams
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah. And I find Fernandes extremely annoying for some reason. Hope Dyche puts them in their place.

            Fernandes has crazy numbers. I’d be salty too if he played for my rivals

            1. Dreams
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Yep. That obviously is the reason. Along with the way he takes the penalties.

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Appreciate greatness. Don’t hate x

          1 month, 25 days ago

          Loool gosh. Nice to see the hate for United is still strong.

          10 unbeaten. Ole’s at the wheel 😉

    2. Zim0

      If they get a decent CB in January they might.

    3. Hot Fuzz

      It was a awesome game though...

    4. Make United Great Again

      Penalties awarded this season

      Leicester 10
      United 6
      Liverpool 5
      Chelsea 5

      Where are the Leicester are cheating shouts?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Vardy is a diving cheat too so that explains their numbers. United also manage it in the CL which exacerbates the issue

        1. Dreams
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Still they did not manage to qualify from the group stage. Even luck has a limit.

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years

            Can’t put a shine on shite, as they say

          Interesting. But you never hear this narrative with Vardy...

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I’ve never liked the germ personally and always considered him a diving cheat. Not as bad as Bruno, but it’s close

        3. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Is it cheating when the referee is the one making the decisions. These teams with high number of pens are just smart and exploiting the new rules. Anyone who isn't is just being dumb.

      2. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Dont really think any penalty for United this season was wrongly awarded. But if you talk about last season there were many. As far as diving goes every team does it....... Perhaps this is the way how the game has evolved(LOL) nowadays.

              Well, you're getting your fair share of engagement, aren't you? & nothing sells like saying something negative about Manchester United

        They saying the other ones are legit while ole is practicing diving on the training pitch all nonsense anyway imo Officials are way to soft to hand them out ,defenders are not allowed to do anything anymore in a so called contact sport make the game sometimes look very silly indeed.

          It’s the most clear case of saltiness and bias you’ll see. Don’t mind them.

          When did any team last win it besides city & Liverpool, those two have been the best sides in England for a while now
          From your username I take it that you're a Leicester fan?

            Yeah because united are now a small club mate. They can’t win the league especially under Ole.

            No, I don’t support any team in the PL but I enjoy watching the PL

          What does that have to do with anything? When was the last time Liverpool or Leicester had won it. They still did. Same for City when they won the league after so long in 2011. Same for Chelsea when they won in 2004

            So you think utd would win the league??

            😆 😆 Lmaooo.

            You are comparing Mourinho’s 2004 team to this Utd team under Ole gunnar solskjear??

            You are a clown

                😆

                I am not a Leicester fan. I love Vardy, he is a fantastic footballer.

                I don’t think United will win it because Ole does not have what it takes to do that yet. I am not saying they will never win the league but not this season also karma would f the team later in the season, it’s just how things work.

                Personally, I think Liverpool will win the league because of the team spirit & mentality in that squad also Klopp is a great manager.

                Ole is doing well this season more than I expected but still he ain’t good enough to win it. Please don’t get me wrong

                    Sold kdb for Son this gw...would activate FH this week & later bring him back for Son for the dgw party 19 🙂

              I'm talking about your statement. "When did United last win the league" and why it has no effect on future results. I gave examples of how when a team hadn't won in a long time suddenly won it that year. I never compared anyone and i never said united would win the league. I was just commenting on how dense u sound.

            Please don’t compare Klopp’s PL winning team to Solskjaer’s team. Please don’t do that

          Honestly as an United fan, not even mad at Leicester fans for talking smack. Them winning the league is the single greatest sporting moment of my lifetime

    6. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Manchester United might not win the league this year, but it sure as hell won't take 3 decades to win the league like some club from Merseyside

      1. Top Mark.S
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Liverpool came close a few times.

        This might be a close year for United but it does not mean winning it will happen anytime soon.

        I remember thinking 7 years in under Evan's, with Fowler, owen and Gerrard that we would not wait much longer.

        Boy was I wrong.

        The longer the wait, the more the pressure builds and the further away it seems.

        A title challenge and winning the title are two very different things

    Do we think Taylor will be back for the double?
    Considering going to Lowton before he rises but don't want to potentially take a hit.

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Absolutely not. Don’t see him playing prior to Feb

  13. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Said Benhrama is rated highly by West ham fans. Looks good everytime he plays. Perhaps an option?

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Nowhere near points currently. Would have Bowen ahead of him. Antonio is the one you want when fully fit. Soucek also an inferior option

  14. La Roja
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Would FH this team?

    Martinez
    Stones Pieters

  15. Jinswick

    Anyone going Salah-less from 18?

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Only those who want a poor finish this season

    2. LLoris
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Thinking about it for KDB then a transfer back the next GW

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I think it's doable for a lil while if you're using ur wildcard right now to have players for both 18 and 19 in order to save FH. Otherwise i don't see a reason to sell.

    4. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Only Bruno rivals Salah(for the dgw) and maybe KDB. I need Salah. Even the United game will have goals

    5. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I wouldn't, you're gonna do transfers & unless you have no other issues, not worth it

  16. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years

    Where do you fit in kdb in this midfield?

      Sell Son for gw 19.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years

        Yeah, might have to sell son or grealish

          Hahaha quit a few ,77 percent template team live fpl tells me .and going for the FH18BB19 stream. So, a lot of boats man a lot. How is your gameweek plans going?

  18. No Kane, No Gain!
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    How’s this for a FH team for next GW?

    Martinez, Steer
    Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Mina, Holgate
    Rashford, Bruno, Son, E Ghazi, Neto
    Kane, Wilson, Lacazette

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Major benching headache

    2. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Personally, I’d switch out Martinez for Leno and find at least one City attacker

  19. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Konsa or Targett?

  20. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Decent plan? Gives me 10 for 18 & 10/11 DGWers for 19 for no hits:

    18: Dier -> Stones
    19: Wilson -> Antonio and either Son -> Rashford or Bellerin -> Cresswell

    McCarthy
    Cancelo, Bellerin, Dier, Targett
    KDB, Bruno, Son, Martinelli
    Wilson, Watkins

    Forster, Salah, Bamford, Mitchell

    Mendy(Forster)
    Robertson Cancelo Taylor Holding Stones
    Salah Son Fernandes Grealish (Riedewald)
    DCL Bamford Rodrigo

    No need to FH in 18 right as I have DCL,Son,Fernandes,Grealish,Cancelo,Stones and Holding

    2 itb, 1 FT
    WIll be using that to do Forster to Martinez to have a keeper for this week and to have a 2nd keeper for BB next week, then next week Riedewald to Soucek and the BB is sorted, sounds good?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Would have 8players+Riedewald basically and for 19 BB all DGW'ers besides Stones and Holding

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Stones has a double aswell dude, your packed with doubles for 19 awesome

  23. puhd
    • 6 Years

    Reece James our for:

    A- Cancelo
    B- Dias
    C- Maguire
    D- anyone else?

    Rest of defense: Dallas Coufal Targett Taylor

    Thanks lads!

    1. Dreams

  24. SomeoneKnows
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Stones
    Bruno, Son, Grealish
    Kane, DCL

    Non playing: Forester, Douglas, Bednarek, Dallas, Salah, Soucek, Bamford

    With 1FT and 1.3 itb my best move is to replace Douglas with a playing defender and field 9 players... question is who?

    1. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      For lower price I guess best chances for a cleany is perhaps Newcastle against Sheffield maybe one of Clark or so.but if you want spend some money then maybe a spurs asset

  25. L'Aeroplanino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    -8 to get in 3 citizens. save FH?

    Cancelo Dias Holding
    KDB Son Rash Bruno Burke
    Watkins DCL

    Sub: Kilman

    1. L'Aeroplanino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      reckon I would take hits to get in city players in 19 anyway, rather save the FH to play the long game

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I'm also thinking on the same lines. United and City players this week and you can save the FH

  26. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Wishlist for today

    Spurs 1 - 2 Leeds
    (Hojberg, Bamford, Raphinha)

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Not sure what I wish from this game.
      Son(C) with Meslier, Dallas and Bamford.

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        A 4-3 would suit me just right

  27. Sanchit
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    How does this look?

    GW18 -> Salah TAA to Rashford Dias for a hit. (2FT)

    GW19 -> bring back Salah TAA for Son Dier next week. (-4)

    Overall -4 but saves me the FH.
    I'll be able to field 7 good players + Brewster and Burke.

  28. Scholes Out Forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Which combo for the DGW:

    Kane + Soucek
    DCL + Son

    Has to be the first option right

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      If Tottenham don't look so good today, I'd go without Sona and Kane as fixtures after 19 are not as appealing as other side's.

    2. Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      First option it is.

    3. puhd
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Definitely first one

  29. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Do I have enough here to navigate GW 18 without free hit or taking hits?

    Martinez
    Stones Lamptey Mitchell
    KDB Bruno Son Grealish
    Kane Watkins

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      8-10 players and you have most of the big hitters people will have on FH.
      I'd save the FH.

      If you have FTs, would try to switch out Lamptey to get a nailed starter

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Cheers, I reckon I might as well save points if there’s any indication from Potter that Lamptey is ready to go.....otherwise I can get Holding in there

  30. fedolefan
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Anyone built a good FH team for DGW19 yet? There's potential for insane differentials to choose from there without worrying too much about the BB.

    1. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Agree but it's so hard to ignore the big guns the differentials would be just fillers around Kane Bruno and friends hmmm

      1. fedolefan
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Won't be getting Kane or Son. Vardy, Chelsea defense/attack, City differentials. There's plenty on offer. It's basically all the big teams in United Pool City Chelsea Leicester doubling, so why use up your budget on Kane/Son, good fixture or not.

        1. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Perhaps I am a bit bias towards Kane and if I got Kane i want son with him and somehow can't look pass Bruno or salah. Don't like the look of Leicester and Chelsea at the moment and city are just a KDB team while maybe sterling is an option just very pricey . Food for thoughts anyway, thanks dude good luck to you

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Who are you thinking of? Aguero if he starts this week could be a good punt.

      1. fedolefan
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yeah, him if he's got a couple of games. Thinking Vardy Pulisic Aguero Sterling, Chilwell etc could be really good in a DGW. No idea yet but I have to FH in 19 and I find it more exciting than 18 since I'll already have 11 there with a hit.
