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.

    2. wantsharptv
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      If you are most likely to FH in 18 would you activate now for price rises or activate final day incase of more match cancellations?

      Thanks

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Activate later but make a couple of transfers now to grab the rises

        I know once you take a couple of hits you're priced into fh but makes my head feel safer

      2. Mr. Chimes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Just wait, you’ll have tons of options regardless of price changes and the cancellations could punish you too.

    3. Vazza
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Anyone here significantly fed up with DCL?

          4 months, 6 days ago

          Kind of. But will keep him for BGW, then ship him out DGW for someone who has two matches.
          What are your plans?

          1. Vazza
              4 months, 6 days ago

              I’m upgrading him to Watkins tonight. I really want a Villa player

            But he'll more than likely be gone for 19

            No Fernandes, try again.

            Not keen on Stones. Perhaps Holding over Bellerin to free up $.

            Not a huge fan of Martial.

            6/10

              Bruno over Rashy sorry lol

                • 10 Years
                4 months, 6 days ago

                Probably 8 or 9 out of 10 then. I'm looking at this:

                (Aguero will likely be Sterling...)

                Leno
                Dias, Holding, Saiss
                KDB, Fernandes, Son, Neto
                Kane, Aguero, Wilson

                (Steer*, Saka, Holgate, Douglas*)

                  • 1 Year

                  Damn yours is very strong. Neto is very smart.

                  1. Catastrophe
                    • 10 Years
                    4 months, 6 days ago

                    Close between him and Saka. Few players on auditions this GW!

                  • 1 Year
                  4 months, 6 days ago

                  You get a 8.5/10. Im not a fan of Wilson but could be proven wrong.

                  1. Catastrophe

                    Cheers. Will probably tear it up and start again over the next couple of weeks 😀

              Why not Stones. He seems nailed on? I could obviously do Martial to Wilson to upgrade Stones tho

              1. Catastrophe
                • 10 Years
                4 months, 6 days ago

                Not sure. Even for Pep it seems bizarre that Laporte isn't getting some starts and he'll want to give Ake some minutes surely. Dias seems a lot safer on the face of it, accepting there's always risk there. I'm thinking of going two city attackers instead.

                1. Fudgy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  4 months, 6 days ago

                  Yeah I get that. I just think Stones has become first choice and theres a decent amount of rest from Chelsea to Brighton. Its better to not take the risk tho I agree. Also Sterling and KDB could be huge as a differential

                2. Would Ed Woodward
                  • 2 Years
                  4 months, 6 days ago

                  Apparently Dias prefers to play left sided CB which is one of the reasons Stones has been partnering him.

          Balbuena losing his spot has completely ruined my bench boost. Take a -4 GW19 to remove him?

            • 3 Years

            wait and see, he definitely plays a fixture.

            Worry in 19 about that.

            But if still likely dropped yes

              Me too. Might have to leave BB for later on season (not worth too many hits).

              Cup opponent has Soucek and Cresswell as 2nd and 3rd on bench.. Feeling bad for the guy

              Some people really want to win the cup and will play their chips in GW17-20 for precisely this reason. My opponent last year did, and narrowly knocked me out 70 to 70(-4). Seemed kind of unfair.

            3. CROYDON DE BRUYNE

              Cup opponent took a -36, rather kind of them to give me such a head start

            Or Saka and Lacazette (in 343)

            Is Lowton rising?

            For DGW19 is Robertson, Son & Kane > Dias, KDB & Vardy/Agureo for -8 crazy?

                6 games against 4 games though?

                  -8 and it's not just for 19

                  I'm just saying I prob wouldnt in your situation

                  Many will take hits

              -8? Naah! City would have to rip teams apart till DGW19 for this not to be crazy.

              Just Kane to Vardy or Aguero if you want an extra DGW player. Or maybe Son to KdB, if you have the cash.

              It would be a non-sheep-like move that could pay off nicely. Especially if you see another Spurs 1-0 win with a first-minute Ndombele goal followed by 89 minutes of total boredom.

            Need to lose 0.2 from this FH team. Any suggestions?

            KDB Bruno Rashford Son Saka
            Kane Wilson

              Maguire to Bailly. easy

              1. George Agdgdgwngo

                  Small risk, not big really. Wont be dropped after tonight anyway.

              Maguire to someone cheaper maybe holding, I think Burnley will score

              Lloris to Lennon darlow

              1. kennethrhcp

                • 10 Years

                Leno or darlow

            4. Werner Bros
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Cheers guys. Done Lloris > Darlow and Maguire to Wan Biss. Got 0.5 extra ITB that I'll sit on for now

              Who is on your bench? Maybe you can scrape off 0.2 on them. KdB is about to drop taking him in after the drop might help you with 0.1 less

          10. JBG
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Is it worth losing 0.2 sale value on Salah to get Kdb in for GW18 and then bringing Salah back in for Son? It will cost me -8 over two GWs, cause I'm bringing in Neto for GW18 and Soucek for GW19.

            1. George Agdgdgwngo
              • 11 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Probably not

              1. JBG
                • 3 Years
                4 months, 6 days ago

                But by doing this I will have 8 players for GW18 and not 7. Kdb, Son and Bruno being 3 off the players.

            2. Phil's Stamps
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              I'm doing Salah to KDB and then Kane to Salah GW19 for a -4. I can sell Mo for 12.4 and there's a fair chance he'll drop before GW19. I think it's worth it for the sake of 0.1 and a hit.

          11. George Agdgdgwngo
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Suggestions on how to get more gw18 players in?

            Martinez*, Johnstone,
            Dias*, lewis*, Coufal, Dallas, Robbo,
            Kdb*, son* bruno*, salah, Soucek,
            Dcl*, bamford, Brewster*

            At best Brewster & Lewis are 2 pointers!

            0.1m itb!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Salah out for sterling or rashford and back in the following week?

            2. JBG
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Unless you wanna lose some sale value on Robbo by downgrading him to another defender who plays GW18, I don't see it.

            It's good to see Utd back as a force to be reckoned with. No one will want to face them in the latter stages of the CL now in fairnesss

            1. Kuzser

              CL lol, next season at best. But for EPL it’s good

            I have 2FT, planning to do Salah & Lamptey to KDB & Stones for exact money (according to later transfer plans). The former is predicted to drop tonight, the latter to rise. Is it best therefore just to hope they both do just that and enjoy the extra day to think?

          14. fridge

            Free hit a no brainier with this lot right?

            Lowton
            Son. Bruno

            1. George Agdgdgwngo
              • 11 Years

              Try and gauage predicted points with and without free hit and then predicted points for a future dgw again with and without

              1. fridge
                • 9 Years
                4 months, 6 days ago

                Yeah good shout, I’m thinking it’s probably worth it tbh

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Yeah, unless you have 2FT (or maybe 1 + a hit) and bring in a couple of the city boys.

              1. fridge
                • 9 Years
                4 months, 6 days ago

                I only have 1 FT so probably worth it

          15. FF Dirtbag
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            KWP and Taylor - > Bailly and Shaw (-4)?

            Worth it? To get this non-FH team?

            Martinez
            Stones Bailly Shaw
            Fernandes Son Grealish
            DCL Kane

            1. FF Dirtbag
              • 9 Years

            No free hit..

            Martinez
            Holding Dias Dier Taylor*
            Bissouma Fernandes (c) son
            Calvert-Lewin

            Salah Coufal Soucek Vardy Bamford

            Have 2.3 itb will probably do Taylor/Son to Dallas/De Bruyne exact money for the double.

            I could move Taylor out but I really want Dallas for the Dbl, rather than a single GW player. Other option is maybe stones?

            At the moment I am stuck with a decision. To WC and BB in in 18/19 or not.

            If I decide not to WC and BB I can field this 11 in gw 19 with a -4.

            Martinez

            Coufal - Dias - Maguire

            Salah - KDB - Bruno - Rashford - Grealish

            Bamford - Antonio/Rodrigo/Watkins etc..

            I will also have 11 players for 18 if I dont WC but just 7/8 if I hit the button. What do you think ?

              • 6 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              I might. Too many price rises tonight, can miss out on 4-5 players if I don't. Gameweek won't get canceled, highly highly unlikely

              1. Tsparkes10
                • 2 Years

              I'm saving it, as I can field 9.

                Not scared of price rises?? I can currently only field 3 so surely I do it either way

                Kind of scared to take those hits lol. Do we trust fpl enough to wipe them out when we hit that FT button? :/

                  Haha... I do. I double checked the rules to be sure

              Too much risk with COVID rates rising across the country. Cancellations more likely than not. There are plenty good options at various price points so no hurry.

          22. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Can get to this with 2FT for BGW18:

            Darlow
            Targett | Lowton | Mitchell*
            Bruno | Son | Grealish
            Kane | Watkins

            9 players, if Mitchell starts.

            Seem viable to save FH on that basis?

            Thanks

                I know, just can’t find a reasonable way to get them in without chip use

                  Do you think the inclusion of triple city would net you 30+ points? If yes then id free hit.

                  1. KAPTAIN KANE
                    • 4 Years
                    4 months, 6 days ago

                    Maybe in the double but not sure about in GW18.

                  2. KAPTAIN KANE

                    4 months, 6 days ago

                    Would effectively be FHing to get City for 18 then in 19 (if they did well) try to get them all in again, at the expense of Kane/Son for hits/WC.
                    Not sure..

                    1. KAPTAIN KANE
                      • 4 Years
                      4 months, 6 days ago

                      Unless I WC of course

                        Id hold WC. Make a mock FH team and compare to what you have. For me the chip is worth 30 points tho deffo.

            Should I free hit right now to make sure I can afford the bets possible team? Dias, Rashford, Stones going up. I only have 4 GW18 players currently... is there a scenario where I wouldn't free hit?
