Suspensions

The Suspension Tightrope: Which FPL players are nearing a one-match ban?

Those who keep an eye on the Suspension Tightrope widget on our homepage will be aware that the yellow cards are steadily racking up for dozens of Premier League players.

Any Fantasy asset who collects five cautions in the English top flight before their team has completed 19 fixtures will serve a one-match ban in the same competition.

Beyond that cut-off point, the threshold moves up from five to ten bookings.

Those Fantasy Premier League assets already sitting on three and especially four cautions still have a little way to go before they are in the clear, then.

After a frenetic festive period, the respite provided by the FA Cup third round seems like a good time to take stock of the disciplinary situation around the top flight.

ON FOUR YELLOW CARDS

There are a grand total of 19 Premier League players teetering on the brink of a one-match ban.

Among them is Jack Grealish (£7.7m), who has been sat on four bookings since Gameweek 15.

Featuring in more than one in three Fantasy Premier League squads, Grealish is by far the most-owned player who has four yellow cards to his name.

A booking in Gameweek 18 would mean that Grealish would miss the first of Aston Villa’s two Gameweek 19 fixtures.

And even if the Villa talisman avoids that fate, a caution in the match against Everton would see him suspended for the second instalment of that Gameweek 19 double-header.

Teammates Matt Targett (£4.6m) and John McGinn (£5.5m) are, of course, in exactly the same situation.

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m), Mateusz Klich (£5.5m) and Harry Maguire (£5.4m) are among the other players who boast an FPL ownership in excess of 4% who also sit on four bookings.

That trio of assets also enjoy two fixtures in Double Gameweek 19.

THE FULL LIST

ON THREE YELLOW CARDS

Of less concern, at least at this stage, are the players sitting on three bookings.

James Justin (£5.0m), Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m), Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) and Kieran Tierney (£5.4m), whose teams have already fulfilled 17 league fixtures, would have to pick up two bookings in their next two games in order to be handed a one-match ban.

Popular FPL buys Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and Joao Cancelo (£5.7m) are also among the 33-strong group of players who are a couple of cautions away from a suspension.

For Fernandes and Cancelo, a booking in Gameweek 18 would leave them precariously on four yellow cards heading into the Gameweek 19 double-header.

THE FULL LIST

CURRENTLY SUSPENDED/ALREADY SERVED A BAN

The four players who picked up their fifth bookings of the season at the weekend included Yves Bissouma (£4.5m), who will miss Brighton and Hove Albion’s trip to Manchester City in Blank Gameweek 18.

The other three, N’Golo Kante (£4.9m), Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) and Conor Gallagher (£5.5m), will miss the first fixture in their respective teams’ Gameweek 19 double-header.

Another five FPL assets have already served one-match bans for yellow card accumulation.

Hector Bellerin (£5.1m) is among them and is already well on his way to ten bookings – more on which below.

THE FULL LIST

WHEN ARE THE CUT-OFF POINTS FOR SUSPENSIONS?

As we mentioned in the introduction, the yellow card threshold is raised to ten after 19 league fixtures.

In most seasons, that would ordinarily mean after the completion of Gameweek 19 – but this is no ordinary campaign.

Aston Villa, Burnley, Manchester City and Fulham are two games behind where they would usually be at this stage, with Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Newcastle United one match in arrears.

Barring any further postponements and rearrangements, the ’19th fixture’ cut-off points for all 20 Premier League clubs are as follows:

ClubPlayers are no longer at risk of a one-match ban for yellow card accumulation after the completion of…
ArsenalGW19
Aston VillaGW20
BrightonGW19
BurnleyGW20
ChelseaGW19
Crystal PalaceGW19
EvertonGW20
FulhamGW21
LeedsGW19
LeicesterGW19
LiverpoolGW19
Man CityGW20
Man UtdGW19
NewcastleGW20
Sheff UtdGW19
SouthamptonGW19
SpursGW20
West BromGW19
West HamGW19
WolvesGW19

The threshold for ten yellow cards is after 32 league matches, which will be mid-April at the earliest.

Players collecting ten bookings before that point will serve a two-game ban.

Punishments for yellow card accumulation are competition-specific, whereas suspensions for dismissals cover all competitive matches.

        B

    2. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Would you BB this in gw 19?

      Martinez Soucek Konsa Taylor

      1. 2OLEgend
          3 months, 18 days ago

          If taylor is ok - yes

        • Amey

          You think villa can keep CS vs Everton ?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Definitely

          2. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Got to take the gamble.
            Expecting Martinez to get save points vs City and Konsa has a goal threat as well.
            Will be happy with 18-20 pts

        • The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Not really enthused by that bench.

          1. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Playing BB in gw 19 means I can WC later without having to worry about the chip and not leave too much money on the bench.

            1. YuvalFPL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Not a bad bench, but doesn't scream points.

              Might be easier to do WC 25 BB 26.

        • jayzico
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Eh. yup. or free transfer

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Best 6.1 forward for upcoming games?

        Currently on

        Bamford. Watkins. Laca.

      3. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Hmm my options in GW 19 are:
        A) Son and Firmino - KDB and Watkins/Antonio
        B) Salah and Firmino - KDB and Vardy

        Which do you reckon?

        1. chrisw333
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          I prefer B

        2. JabariParkersEyelid
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 18 days ago

          B obviously way riskier but carries a lot of upside.

          I'm conservative and would go A though.

      4. chrisw333
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        FH
        Leno, Dias and Holding or
        Darlow, Stones & Tierney

        Any thoughts?

        1. The Frenchie
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Honestly is the same, maybe B to get offensive points with Tierney

        2. JabariParkersEyelid
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 18 days ago

          B spreads the risk a bit better.

        3. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          B. Tierney is essential imo for a FH.

        4. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          B

        5. Kannbury
            3 months, 18 days ago

            B. Looks safer, double Ars defence could backfire if we concede.

        6. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Best defender under 4.5 for the next 2 GWs.

          A) Balbuena
          B) Lowton
          C) Pieters
          D) Yedlin

          1. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Lowton. Pietersif you need the 0.1

            1. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Don't need the cash. I want to take whoever is the most nailed for next two GWs. Is that Lowton or Pieters?

          2. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Maybe look at Dawson if he is first choice now?

            1. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              He's 4.5, can't afford.

        7. The Frenchie
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          A) Meslier / Steele / Chilwell (GW18: / DGW19: Meslier)
          B) Meslier / Martinez / Dallas (GW18: Martinez / DGW19: Meslier)

          1. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            B. Dallas is awesome.Watched every Leeds game this season.

            1. The Frenchie
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Thanks bro.What do you think of Meslier then?

        8. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          What's going on with Liverpool?
          If someone told me LFC would score 1 goal in three games after that Palace mauling I think they knee nothing aboug football?
          More importantly will they bounce back against United? How do you see that game going?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Score draw

          2. Maddamotha
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Tight game, few goals is my guess.

          3. NateDogsCats
              3 months, 18 days ago

              0-0

            • Shatner's Bassoon
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Wish I knew. We look weird at the moment.. perhaps a little complacent. Maybe big Joel M held the whole enterprise together because it's been utterly grim since he departed against WBA.

              Maybe it's just that everything we touched went in against Palace and the laws of football mean that you'll then struggle to score in any of your next few games.

            GW19 Question.

            A. Grealish/Son to KDB/Raphinha
            B. Robbo/Son to KDB/Cresswell.

            TC KDB.

            1. YuvalFPL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              That's a tough one.

              B just but both good.

            2. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              A

              Robbo and Raphinha is better than Grealish and Cresswell.

          5. faver
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Would you BB - Martinez, Targett, Adams and Kilman?

            1. JabariParkersEyelid
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Not with confidence.

              1. faver
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                Exactly.. This also means -8 to bring in Leeds players, but that is my only plan for dgw19..

                1. JabariParkersEyelid

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  You don't have to force the bench boost, there will be opportunities for it later.

                  1. faver
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    That is what I'm thinking. Maybe sgw with decent bench fixtures can do better. Who knows. Thank you!

            2. matiakez
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              I dont think I would unless you can find a way to move on Kilman

              1. faver
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                I have some money itb and I'm looking at this possibility but I cannot find anyone appealing in the budget.

              • 6 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              don't BB, TC and then use WC to BB later in season maybe

            • 6 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Considering grealish’s risk of being suspended on the second game of the dgw19 at city, would you sell grealish for sterling or Rashford for a hit ?

            1. The Frenchie
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Yes, even without the risk of suspension ;-). Rashford, Maddison or KDB if you can afford

            2. Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Yep I’m selling.

            3. Saka_me_sideways
                3 months, 18 days ago

                I’m I right in thinking it could be the first game if he picks up a yellow in the FA cup game?
                Either way I wouldn’t have.

                1. Saka_me_sideways
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Just realised the FA cup game is before gw18 so he would be banned for that and play the double potentially.

                What are people doing with Kane / Son in 19?

                I was going to use Kane as a funds generator but now not so sure?

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Most likely selling both

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  I'm more than likely selling Son to get KDB. I'm not over the moon about it.

                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Son out for Salah

                4. Make United Great Again
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Keeping Son. Selling Kane which gives me a GW19 attack of

                  Salah KDB Bruno Son Raphinha
                  Vardy Bamford

                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Kane & Rash out for Mo & Martial most likely for the double.

                • 10 Years

                Has Balbuena lost his place now?

                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Seems to have done.

                        Yup - BB26 it is.

                        Probably an omen I'm not relying on west ham defence for bench boost points to be honest..

                  He has looked good in all 4. Should keep his place.

                United's fixtures look great and Spurs' not so. Does Kane + Son to Vardy + Rashford make sense? Have Bruno also.

                Son and dier > Rashford and Cancelo ahead of gw 19 ?

                  sounds good.

                  Should work out well but be prepared for the potential punishment from Son... Sonishment.

                Anyone here not playing their FH or BB chip for the next two?

                Would be interested to see some teams. I'm going into 18 with 9 players and 19 with 11 DGWers.

                1. Pukki Party
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Plenty are doing that i think

                2. Big Hippo
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  I'm probably doing that. Can get to 10 in 18 (if you count Brewster) and 11 DGWers. Risk is Taylor's fitness and Jack's 4 yellows. Team below:

                  Martinez (Steer)
                  Dias Bellerin Taylor (Cresswell Dallas)
                  Salah KDB Grealish Bruno (Soucek)
                  Kane Brewster (Bamford)

                  Move in 18 is Salah > Sterling and then Kane > Vardy in 19. Both risks but fancy Sterling's fixtures more over the next 5 and Vardy has Leeds soon after the DGW. I might change from this plan though!

                  1. YuvalFPL
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Yeah looks good. I'm similar in some ways.

                    Are you going without Mo for 19 then? I don't think I have the balls for that.

                    Martinez (Nyland)
                    Dias Mitchell (Ayling Balbuena Robbo)
                    Bruno Rashford Martinelli (Salah Soucek)
                    Kane (Adams Bamford)

                    Balbuena & Salah out for Cancelo and KDB (-4) gives me 9.

                    Kane & Rash out for Salah & Martial for GW19 - still need to decide on TC.

                    1. Big Hippo

                      • 8 Years
                      3 months, 18 days ago

                      Looks good.

                      I honestly don't know with Mo yet. I think Sterling could outscore him over the next 5 so maybe, but big risk and still scarred from Kanexit.

                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    I think I'll save my FH and start 7 in 18 and BB in 19.
                    Current team:
                    Martinez (McCarthy)
                    Zouma, Cresswell, Dias (Coufal, Dallas)
                    Salah, Son, Bruno, Raphinia, Soucek
                    Vardy, Bamford (DCL)

                    Might do Son, DCL, Zouma -> KDB, Adams/Watkins, Lowton before GW19

                      I can't see the 7 that'll start in 18?

                      Martinez
                      Dias
                      Son Bruno
                      DCL

                  and they have played sheff U !

                        Could be yes. But even JRod wasn't that amazing the few matches he played in before his injury

                    Hope he blanks vs Wolves. Him and Wilson the main threats to me in 18

                    He’s going a lot deeper to pick up the ball now.
                    Coleman has returned. Digne and James on the verge of returning.
                    I’d dump him now and have a watching brief until wk 21 when they have Newcastle then Leeds then a possible double in 24

                    Selling right before the MCI game looks like one of my best decisions this year. Even though I didn't exactly get mega points from Adams, he was the correct cash cow to fund a BB and at his peak price of 8.0m as well.

                      yeah same here, icing on the cake was Soucek(11) in for Adams this week!

                  Wonder if fpl has a new solution if the league gets postponed during the season? Last year some said removing the deadlines would need a lot of work so maybe they would go with the same plan as last season.

                    There'll be plenty of time to worry about that if it happens. The more immediate concern, given that the Government are not going to shut down elite sport, is how the PL will deal with individual clubs in an equitable and safe way whilst keeping to a tight schedule.

                  What's the deal with Adams? Worth doing Adams + Anguissa > Watkins + Smith-Rowe (-4)?

                  Im not using FH in 18.

                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    No news i think, but he doesn't have a fixture in 18 anyway.

                    1. JollyGoodYellows
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 18 days ago

                      True, I don't plan to use any chips over the next 2 weeks so might do those moves.

                    Concussion so will be ok for 19 but if you need people in for the blank then move him to Watkins. Got to be someone better / more nailed than Smith Rowe you can get.

                      Cheers! I've got nothing itb so need the 0.1 from Anguissa > Smith Rowe to upgrade Adams to Watkins.

                  FH team:

                  (Mitchell and other fodder)

                  Watkins (TOT h) is my weakest link here I think. Anybody think of an improvement?

                  Morning everyone. Quick help with my FH18 draft please?

                  Darlow
                  Tierney Cancelo Stones
                  Bruno KdB Son Saka
                  Wilson Laca Kane
                  Steer, Maguire, Fernández, Burke

                  Really not sure if I should play Maguire/AWB over any of my defenders? Or to downgrade.to fodder, but can't see upgrades elsewhere?

                    get Raz in there I reckon.

                      Maguire, Cancelo, Saka, Laca OUT
                      AWB, Mitchell, Raz, Davis IN

                      Exact cash? Bench will be Steer, Mitchell, Burke, Davis

                        I would also lose Son.
                        Keep Laca

                          and your bench is waaay over the top.
                          Lose Maguire

                        2. My heart goes Salalalalah

                          Yoh! That's a big call for me. But it would be great differential moves! Will mull over it until deadline. Dankbaar!

                          3 months, 18 days ago

                          So Saka, Laca over Son, Davis. I reckon that's great upgrades, and the I can play 343, rather the 442

                        3 months, 18 days ago

                        Yeh i'd do that I think. Tierney's enough Arsenal IMO.

                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Think i'd prefer 2 City mids + 1 DF against Brighton. If they keep a clean sheet you'll get 6 points rather than 8, and then the attacking upside is big.

                    Stones -> Fodder, play Maguire. Convert Laca cash to City mid.

                      I agree with Christina.
                      Get Raz by downgrading a city defender and playing a United like you said.
                      I don’t trust double defences, especially with what happened in the chelsea game.. Cancelo is enough imo

                            Whats an acceptable number of players with games for GW18 when not using FH?

                              quality over quantity

                            2. Flair

                              7 is borderline.

                            3. Shatner's Bassoon

                              If I could get to 8 with a -4 I would, and then save FH for later.

                              Assuming the -4 included City/United players who then double & have decent games in GW21.

                              You need Bruno, KDB and Son/Kane.

                              Then 3 or 4 solid starters around that IMO.

                              8 GOOD players for me.

                              The floor for good players imo is Watkins. If you have 8 players who are Watkins level of potential or higher, I'd save FH.

                                3 months, 18 days ago

                                Does Mitchell, Martinez and Martinelli sit above Watkins?

                            6. YuvalFPL

                              I'm going with 9.

                              As long as you have Bruno, KDB, City defender and Kane/Son, no one can really hurt you.

                            Is it worth a -4 hit to go Steer + James >> Johnstone + Stones for a bench boost in GW19?

                            1. YuvalFPL

                              Who else will be on your bench?

                                It would be Johnstone, Balbuena, Dallas, Brewster

                            Does anyone have any intel on Charlie Taylor’s injury and/or when he may be expected back?

                              Nothing, but there's 7 days to go before the game.

                            If I play FH now can you cancel it if the GW gets canned?

                            free hit team look OK?

                            Son KDB Zaha Fernandes(c) Saka
                            Kane Wilson

                            Martin Stones Mari Davis

                            Salah and James to KDB and Dallas(-4), gives me 8(9) depending on Taylor who likely wont play
