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.

    So I had always planned on FH this game week, while building towards a BB GW19. However, I am now thinking of doing the following, any thoughts appreciated,
    GW18
    Salah & Robbo > KDB & Shaw to field:

    Martinez
    Shaw Dias Cancelo
    Greilish Son KDB Bruno
    Brewster DCL

    GW19
    A) Brewster & DCL > Vardy & Watkins
    B) Brewster & DCL > Ings & Bamford

    Play BB

    1. BinManJack
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Other players are Coufal, Soucek, Meslier, Justin, Adams

    2. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Then you won't have Salah for the DGW?

    3. 2OLEgend
        3 months, 18 days ago

        B

    4. Baines on Toast...

      Hassenhuttl is a wonderful manager. Surely next in line for a top 4 job.

      1. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Just shows that sometimes sticking with the man over his tougher period can be right thing to do.

        1. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Agreed. Credit to the club for their patience. So rare.

        2. Silecro
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          that is something im telling myself with Lampard

      2. Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Going up a level, I'd be curious to know who is selecting managers at Southampton because they clearly know what they are doing (with the exception of Claude Puel). A prime example of a very well run club.

    5. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Martinez
      Cancelo, Dias, Dier
      KDB, Fernandes, Grealish
      DCL

      (Dallas, Coufal, Salah, Soucek, Bamford, Adams)

      2 free transfers.

      Thinking Salah to Son as one of them with the view to do the opposite move for DGW19.

      Then maybe Adams out for Fabio Silva as the other ft.

      Thoughts?

      1. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Seems solid mate, but I wouldn’t get Fabio in. Seems like it would be for the sake of having another GW18 player. Fabio (and Wolves) don’t score! You don’t want him.

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

          Yeah it would mainly be to make up the numbers but I guess going into DGW19 with two frees would be a better option.

          Thanks.

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

        Think Salah to Son should work. Adams has a double in 19, I would just settle with 9 players personally.

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

          Cheers.

    6. zah1d
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Current BGW Team - Free Hit or not? 1 FT. Happy to minus 8 points, making it 9 players to field assuming all start.

      Martinez
      Kilman, Wan Bissaka
      Son, Fernandes
      DCL, Kane

      Kilman unlikely to start it seems!

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

        Mmm, doesn't look great. I would be tempted to FH there.

      2. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 18 days ago

        If you can use 1FT to get a premium City in, then I would save FH

        1. zah1d
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Interesting. So that'll make it 7 starters. Is that sufficient?

          1. zah1d
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Assuming Kilman won't start.

            1. Booked4Dissent
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Yeh there’s uncertainty there.

          2. Booked4Dissent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 18 days ago

            I will have 8 starting personally. The GW will be damage limitation. So long as you have the solid premiums then you’re unlikely to fall far.

            BGWs are always over hyped. There will be a low average. Realistically how many more points would you get from adding 4 players on FH? I reckon 15 best case scenario. My FH is worth more to me than that and I will use it to better effect (hopefully) at a later point in the season when most managers have already used theirs in GW18.

            1. zah1d
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Thanks for your responses. I'm still torn!

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

        -8 fielding 9. So FH obviously wipes out the -8, and gives you 2 more players, and a better team over all. Might be a good case for FH.

        1. zah1d
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Fair points raised, thanks for that. The fact there are so many different views out there and approaches are what makes it so confusing.

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

        I would free hit that unless you can bring in KDB & Cancelo easily?

        1. zah1d
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          I can replace Salah with KDB. Cancelo, I would have to get rid of Justin or Bednarek or Coufal to get him in!

      5. Neevesy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Free hit for me.

        Depends if you you feel a free hit further down the line will add more value, but if you keep it, it ocukd quite easily end up being a wasted chip.

        I'd use it now, and bank the points.

        1. zah1d
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Good point, do we think there will likely be fewer games in a GW for the rest of the season?

    7. Tosa86
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      my FH draft for BGW18:

      Darlow
      AWB - Cancelo - Tierney
      KDB - Mahrez - Fernandes - Son - Neto
      Kane - Wilson

      button - holding - mitchell - brewster

      any suggestion?
      thanks

      1. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Dias over Cancelo?

        1. Tosa86
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          why?

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

      Appreciate any thoughts on this team for GW 18:

      Martinez (Johnstone)
      Dias Stones Dier (Coufal) (Struijk)
      Saka KDB Fernandes (Salah) (Soucek)
      Kane Wilson (Bamford)

      I currently have 9 players, should I make a transfer this week?
      Salah to Rashford/Son/Auba then transfer him back or save the transfer to get rid of Wilson and potentially Dier or Kane in GW19?

      I'm currently thinking to BB in GW 19.

      Thanks

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

        I think save the ft and maximise DGW BB returns.

        Team is strong for this week.

      2. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Agree with Shirkov, but can you afford to do Salah Rashford switcheroo? I would do it but have 0m ITB so wouldn’t be able to get Salah back again.

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

          Thanks, so that is an issue, I have 0.1M ITB. If Salah drops, then I can afford to do it.

          However if I do transfer out Salah and get him back in, it's likely I'll transfer out Wilson and get a cheaper DGW like Wood/Adams/Rafinha for a 4.

          1. Booked4Dissent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Doesn’t seem worth it to me. Imagine if you couldn’t get Salah back!

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

              Yeah would probably agree, I’m pretty set on transferring out Wilson, so getting Salah back in is going to cost me points too...

      So Adams should be back for DGW19?

        ....assuming Ralph hasn't replaced Ole/Arteta/Lampard

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Ole has the highest PPG in the league, I think he's ok for now.

      2. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Seems to be the case. Whether I want to hold him or swap for Rodrigo is another question though.

      3. Goonerly
        • 3 Years

        Sounds like it, yeah.

    11. Nightcrawler

      3 months, 18 days ago

      158 (316) cap points this season

      Ridiculously lucky with cap picks. Every time i dont captain Salah its a haul. Tempted to sell him

    12. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Are people still waiting to press the FH button or doing it now after yesterday’s confirmation elite sport continues?

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

        I'm still waiting a bit. I can make my desired team with still 0.5 ITB, so not worried too much about price rises.
        And there could still be games being called off a day or two before GW18 starts.

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

        The announcement about sport continuing won't stop individual teams canceling fixtures like we've already seen.

        Playing the FH with more eggs in fewer baskets it's an even bigger risk. What happens say If City get postponed and you've already loaded up on three players?

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Yep, don’t disagree just wanted to gather some more opinions.

      3. Zladan
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Still holding off. Very easy to just downgrade someone like Tierney to Holding for cash if required.

        The benefit of saving far outweighs using it just now.

        There could be an outbreak at any team over the next week or so, so best to wait until as close to deadline as possible.

    13. One of Those Days

      How is this FH18 team looking?

      1. Nightcrawler

        Auba over KDB is a big fat NO

        1. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years

          Agreed.

          Emile Smith Rowe

        2. Goonerly
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Emile Smith-Rowe. Might be a rotation risk though

          1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            4.4 and bench covers. I would have him if I was FHing.

    14. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Not much love for Leno in these FH teams I see. Think he's a better option over Darlow personally

      1. NateDogsCats
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Not doing FH personally but I think Leno is quite error prone at times

        • Goonerly
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          I guess nobody wants to double up on Arsenal DEF and Tierney is a better choice than Leno in that regard

        Thomas Tuchel linked with Chelsea as a possible Lampard replacement. Why does he keep getting linked with top clubs? He inherited Klopp's Dortmund and didn't exactly continue where they left off and PSG was nothing special. Am I missing something?

        1. el polako
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Once you get on the "top clubs" manager merry go round you stay on it for quite a while.

        2. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 18 days ago

          The dortmund team he inherited finished 7th and 33 pts behind bayern

          He finished 2nd in his first season 10 points behind bayern

          1. King Drogba11
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Yeah Klopps Dortmund were horrendous his last year.

              Tuchel is a good manager, not sure he’s the one for Chelsea if they sack Frank though.

          2. Captain_Shirokov
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Yeah I'm really not sure to be honest. Doesn't strike me as having achieved anything exemplary.

            As a Chelsea fan i do not want him. Will take an Allegri or ten Hag over him

          Despite his excellent consistency, and the premium I’ll have to pay when I inevitably soon want him back, would you say the following moves losing Son for funds are worth it for giving BB ability in DGW19?

          Son Davis Mitchell ->> Raphina Stones(may have enough for Cancelo) Ings (-8)

          Cheers 🙂 tricky one. Son got a great fixture even though SGW

            I'd say no.

            I’m definitely keeping Son for GW19. He will likely outscore most even though they have 2 matches!

              • 4 Years

              Do you think he will score more than Rashford?

                That’s a tough one.

                Rashford has a nice Fulham fixture. Don’t see him getting more than 2 points v Liverpool.

                Coin toss I’d say. I wouldn’t switch from Son to Rashford though.

          Grealish is on 4 YC and
          - if he gets a YC against TOT on GW18, he will be suspended for the first DGW game against verton
          - if he get a YC against EVE on first game od DGW19, he will be suspended for the second game of DGW19

          - but what if he gets a YC against City during the second DGW game. Will he be suspended for GW20?

              thanks. I guess there's a case for selling Grealish in DGW19 then

          I found a good way to justify Kane>Vardy for the double if you were a bit unsure/torn on the decision. Make it a -4 and do DCL>Ings in the process.

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam

            Ings a nice option.

              I am going one step ahead and doing Kane + Son to Vardy + Rashford

                    He isn’t ever leaving my team 🙂
                    Tbh Kane and Son were season keepers for me, but I’ll go with Vardy as a bit more of a differential and seems to be performing better. Will go back to Kane at some point though

                    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 18 days ago

                      Son last 5 games: 32 points
                      Rashford last 5 games: 32 points

                      Rashford has better fixtures moving forward

                        Rashford isn’t even in the same league as Son imo, he isn’t a bad pick but I wouldn’t lose Son to facilitate it.

          The guy top of my ML has 50 points in mr in second and a 20k OR but has used FH and BB already, both with good success frustratingly and it does make you wonder why you wait to use chips for special GWs given how often they’re a let down.

          I’ve got all chips and can field 6 starters with 3 poor/rotation risks this week. What would be my best plan of attack? Is it possible to WC a team this week and field a decent 11 that can then be BB’d next week? My squad as it stands has 7 DGW players so if I was to use FH this week I’m not set up very well for a BB or anything next week.

          Appreciate any advice 🙂

          1. Ady87

            Team:

            Forster
            Dias Justin Dier (Dallas Mitchell)
            Son Salah KDB Bruno Podence
            Bamford Wilson (Brewster)

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Team looks ok without a FH. I play WC will field 9/10 players gw18 and most squad will play 2 games gw19

            Using chips in a Sgw can work but its rare. Just like capping a defender will work for some at times. Lets see how he does in the blank week now and whenever u use ur Bb

            I think on average using FH in a bgw has more success. Youre far less likely to get a red arrow than when u use it in a normal week

            1. Nightcrawler
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 18 days ago

              I used it on a SGW last season and got a huge red arrow. Went without KDB who got a haul at emirates

              Thise going without Salah this week wont have to worry about it

              Always used it on a BGW before last season and reverting to that strategy again becuase its always resulted in a green arrow

            Neto a good choice, yeah.
            Either him or maybe Saka. Both pivotal to their respective teams' attack

            • 6 Years

            I would guess he starts today then is benched for the FA Cup

          For the attention of Salah owners with no KDB and no FH....

          What's your plan for GW 18 and 19? I can't be the only one on this boat.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Have FH but saving it, I’m doing this:

            GW18:
            Salah to KdB
            Cresswell to Cancelo

            GW19:
            Son to Salah
            DCL to Brewster/Davis

            so effectively will just have Kane as a Spurs asset for GW19.

            1. Shifty

              Interesting. Thanks!

              Thinking salah to kdb this week.

              Was thinking of then dcl out funding son to salah...but I don't have soucek as a 5th mid.

            Not using FH.

            Salah -> KDB

            Bring him back for Son or Grealish next week.

          I was set on FH18 until Salah blanked

          Worth doing Balbuena and Salah to Stones and KDB (-4) having 8 players for BGW18 and saving FH?

          • 11 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Will Salah and KDB change price tonight? What you think? They are both on around 90%.

          I want to watch the City game tomorrow before do the switch, why people are so impatient I don't get it.

          1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Yup I can see both changing price tonight

          2. Shifty
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Can't blame the masses. If they were both ticking along at that price point...ppl might be patient.

            But Everytime one blanks, the other explodes...really frustrating. Plus media is gushing over KDB now.

          3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            FHs may be skewing the figures, plus I think they do a bit of jiggery-pokery in BGWs/DGWs, so I would be a little less confident of the FPL Statistics predictions than I normally am.

            1. Daniel - When to BB?
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              but it's a 0.2m risk, I don't like to take. Hmmm..

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

            Probably. Which is very frustrating as I would much prefer to wait before doing my Salah -> KDB switch, will need the cash for Cancelo - who is also rising.

          5. King Drogba11
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Ask yourself why you had Salah and not KDB.

              Don’t let a few games change all your thinking.

              1. Shifty
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                Think many went kdb to salah after palace out of fear....

            • 6 Years

            best option for the double and until GW 25

            A - Che Adams + Salah
            B - Ings + Rashford

            ?

            For my FH GW 18 I’m looking at taking a risk as the team will revert back and if it goes wrong I don’t feel the repercussions.

            What is the minimum number of players you could live with and save the FH chip for later? Currently on 3 with a FT which means FH this week is pretty much a given for me.

            • 1 Year

            Not FH team, good enough? I have 1FT and 2.3 ITB to make a change.

            Martinez
            Stones Mitchell Lamptey
            Kdb (c) Bruno Son Grealish Neto
            Kane Brewster

            If i dont use the FT, i can do:

            Stones
            Son Fernandes
            Wood Kane

            Should I wait to press the FH Button or i rather do it now.

              Too less imo. Now or later doesnt matter unless price changes affect your team selection.

                • 6 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                0 ITB, hence the question

            2. DK_13
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Make the team you want. If you still have 0.3-4+ ITB. You don't really need to rush it

              1. Neo-Viper
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                0 in the bank currently

                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  I meant if you have 0.3+ left AFTER you make your desired FH team, you don't need to be worried about being priced out of it

                  1. Neo-Viper
                    • 6 Years

            Terrible season, at 755k OR.
            Shields and swords...would you leave Kane out on FH and go with Sterling or "play it safe" and just have KDB Son and Kane and try to gain rank by other positions like Wilson and Arsenal guys?

              In same position.

              Likes of Rashford Sterling vs Kane. I like the fixture of City more, and if I was 100proc sure Sterling would start Id picked him.

              Now not too sure.
