Which chips did the top 10k FPL managers use in Double Gameweek 19?

Fantasy Premier League managers ranked among the top 10,000 have turned to the chips for Double Gameweek 19.

While none has reached the same deployment level as the Free Hit did in Blank Gameweek 18, the Wildcard, Triple Captain and Bench Boost earned a spread of attention.

In total, 51.1% of the top 10k played a chip for Double Gameweek 19, a little over half of them.

Unsurprisingly, the Bench Boost was the most popular of those, 25.4% of the top 10k asking their substitutes to step up for Double Gameweek 19.

36.3% of them have now used that chip over the first 19 rounds of fixtures but it is certainly significant that 63.7% of the managers at this level are holding it for a later opportunity.

Total usage of the Triple Captain chip has also more than doubled following Saturday morning’s deadline, 16% of the top 10k presenting their skipper with an enhanced armband.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) is the key man in this Double Gameweek 19 subplot, with 8.9% of the top 10k Triple Captaining the Manchester City midfielder.

5.4% have gone with Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), 0.8% backed Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and 0.3% went for Jamie Vardy (£10.1m).

Why FPL managers should focus on the short-term this season

As you can see above, even though this is the busiest week of the season for Triple Captaincy chips among the top 10k, 73.8% of them are still holding onto it for later usage.

Meanwhile, 7.2% of those at this level used the Double Gameweek 19 as a springboard for a whole new squad.

16.7% of the top 10k have pulled the trigger on the second Wildcard since the turn-of-the-year. However, 83.3% are still waiting for a better opportunity to arise.

The Free Hit chip has had its day among the top 10k, total usage for that chip rising to 88.5% after the Blank Gameweek 18 fixtures.

2.6% of managers in the upper echelons used it to reap the temporary benefits of the Double Gameweek 19 schedule.

For the first time this season, we now have more top 10k managers having deployed two chips instead of one or zero.

44.9% have now used two since the second Wildcard became available. Only 2.9% have gone chipless since that time.

Interestingly, 10.3% of these managers have already used up three of the four at their disposal.

The most interesting thing to note from the template of most-owned players among the top 10k for Double Gameweek 19 is what has happened to the ownership of Spurs’ two key attackers.

Considering the Blank Gameweek 18 matrix was so heavily populated by Free Hit figures, it serves better to compare this latest template with the one from Gameweek 17.

And what we can see is that Harry Kane (£11.1m) has maintained a stable showing among the top 10k. In Gameweek 17, 47.2% were in possession of the striker and that has fallen by just 3.5 percentage points ahead of Double Gameweek 19, despite just one fixture.

The top 10k have not been quite so patient with Son Heung-min (£9.7m) considering the wealth of premium midfielders set to play twice in Double Gameweek 19.

As of Saturday morning’s deadline, the South Korean international is owned by 55.1%, making him the fifth-most popular midfielder at this level.

However, that is a far cry from the 80.4% ownership among top 10k managers Son experienced in Gameweek 17.

At the same time, De Bruyne has broken into the top-five most-popular midfielders for Double Gameweek 19, now owned by 58.6% and overtaking Son in the matrix of most-owned players.

In total, just nine of the 15 players included in this matrix have two matches scheduled for Double Gameweek 19, perhaps why so many of the top 10k are waiting for another chance to play the Bench Boost.

The six who have just one match are Kane, Son, Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), Stuart Dallas (£4.8m), Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m) and Alex McCarthy (£4.7m) – three of those denied a second by Southampton and Leeds’ FA Cup-related postponement.

Some of the top 10k were happy to sell some members of that trio, despite an upcoming, as yet unconfirmed, Double Gameweek.

McCarthy’s top 10k ownership has dropped from 59.7% to 47.6% between Gameweeks 17 and 19, Dallas’ has gone from 57.1% to 50.9% while Walker-Peters’ ownership as this level has shrunk by 8.1 percentage points in that time.

Bamford’s backing has been a little more stable. He was owned by 90.3% of the top 10k in Gameweek 17 and by 84.7% of them past Saturday morning’s deadline.

Wildcarding managers in the top 10k are less interested in the Spurs assets than the majority.

As you can see, Bamford, Antonio and Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) were all present in more of these squads than Kane for Double Gameweek 19.

And only 35.9% of these top 10k Wildcards selected Son in their new squad.

De Bruyne is the focus of the Double Gameweek 19 captaincy as 47.7% of the top 10k handed him the armband for home matches against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

Salah finished the race in second place with 35.6% captaincy backing although his superior ownership at this level means he has the highest top 10k effective ownership for Double Gameweek 19 (120.2%).

Fernandes’ opening match of the round at Liverpool, plus his four yellow cards so far this season, seem to have put the punters off him for the captaincy.

Just 7.2% of the top 10k chose him as their Double Gameweek 19 skipper, Vardy (3.1%) and Kane (1.3%) completing the top five.

    Anyone else had an underwhelming start to the DGW?

    1. estheblessed
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yes!

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years

      0 returns and captain "fail" so far

    3. Don Kloppeone

      A whole lot worse than underwhelming!!

    4. TheDragon
      • 3 Years

      Just not had many players play so waiting for tomorrow

    5. bitm2007

      Yep, comedy-tragedy over here. As per most of this season.

    7. Brehmeren
      • 10 Years

      12 from 5. Yes.

    8. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Tragic so far

  2. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Wow Vardy blank. Hopefully Kane can do the business tomorrow!

  3. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    The comedy of errors/ Shakespearean tragedy continues. I’m fully expecting the following now given how this BB is going:

    Kane haul (dropped for Vardy)
    Son blank (kept him)
    KDB mega haul (couldn’t afford him)
    Salah blank (capped him)

    I’m sure plenty more but that’ll keep the fun going! 😆

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I’d do unspeakable things for a KDB mega haul

      1. Don Kloppeone

        The way my week is going I think you’re destined to get it

        As in the playwright? I’m confused

    3. One of Those Days
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sterling haul incoming then 😀

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I wouldn’t be as sad about that because very few will own

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Lol oh mate it’s a shocker!

        And you know what - for some reason I thought I’d only taken a -8 (my max normally) until it was confirmed and I saw the -12

        It looked worth a try on paper

        Wasn’t to be!

  4. tuturututu

      37 (-8) so far on BB

    • Ady87
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Obviously all of the draft players return except the ones in the final squad, that’s how it works.

    • TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Best not to check you rank too much during this gameweek with the games so spread out.

      That said , the game week really starts tomorrow with spurs, United, Liverpool and city

    • JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Matt Targett's FPL - 50383
      transferred himself and Grealish out.

      Wow, does he know something we don't?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        1. Pukki Party

            Nice to see he got Kane’s 16 point return in Utd’s 6-1 loss

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Great work! Judging by a couple of the leagues it really is him

      6. JJeyy
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Just saw John Mcginn transferred in Watkins this week... a sign of someone who is fit to play?

      7. Mané Fuchs Given
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Concerning when I own both, and main reason I didn’t get KDB was I’d have had to lose Grealish!

            Hahah, nice one.

            Alex McCarthy is in one of his leagues and he captained Vardy. Conflict of interest? 😀

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              And yet many FPL managers won’t captain a player against the club they support from afar

            2 months, 26 days ago

            If you look at the other active teams in the "Tea League 4" they've kept Grealish in their team. I think Targett is just rubbish at FPL.

            1. JJeyy
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Yup Hourihane made transfers and kept him

            So we are ignoring Matthew Targett who VC'd Grealish and started himself?

            Neil Taylor & Tom Heaton on the other hand have captained Grealish this week...

            Hourihane kept him...

            I don’t know who to believe

                That equals players who don't play anymore games.

                On livefpl the number is about/around 4.5-5.5/24. I don't find that 1.59 number being very informative. To understand it calculations are needed.

                  There are two numbers on LiveFPL. Number of players that won't play again, and the number you quoted.

                  I haven't implemented the latter for leagues, hence why LMS reports like that.

                I played Bamford over Grealish, was worried about cancellations. So be it, I think Leeds are done now.

                    WBA played Blackpool on the 9th Jan. Johnstone didn't play that day, wasn't even in the squad. I'd say his isolation period will end before Tuesday's game vs West Ham.

                    Isolation starts with symptoms/contact/positive test and ends with negative test (or two negatives, maybe)

                      I think almost half a million captained. Feed said he was forced off but prolly precautionary

                          That was my idea - I knew the risk. However, I thought the risk was that he would get two 2 pointers with a bunch a big chances missed. Didn't know he would be benched ffs.

                          (btw I'm chasing and wanted someone with a high ceiling)

                    Cant believe this game... BB absolutely buggered. I was aiming for at least 150 points and anything else is a fail and right now im on 17 points after halfway done. Just F this 100% luck based game.

                      150 points is so unrealistic. Stop being so dramatic, this season is no less skill based and no more luck based than any other season.

                        players of his calibre always aim for big scores, it's what separates him from us mere mortals

                        How is 150 points unrealistic? 60 points is an average score in a normal game week. I have 11 DGW player which means 120 is an average score, and then Ive played bench boost as well with 2 DGW players = 20 points and 2 non DGW players = 10 points. 150 points total, nothing dramatic about it.

                          Except for the fact your captain makes up a good chunk of that 60 pts and with a bench boost your team quality isn’t as good

                            My captain has a double too so its perfectly valid what I said above

                        No it's mot.. I recall back in 2016/17 there were insane dgw BB scores, with 15 dgw players I reached 199pts, others went up to 200+.

                    Anyone here out of chips? If so, what's your rank?

                    Just curious.

                    Unless Johnstone plays against West Ham, I’ve only gained 2 points from my bench boost!

                    I almost didn’t play it as well, but in the end decided to go with my gut! First time this season that hasn’t worked out for me, and it’s a biggie! 🙁

                      Similar here... glad to get it out the way tbh

                        Same in a way. I wasn’t the only in my mini league to play it, but annoyingly my closest challengers didn’t!

                      Bench boost is a crap chip anyway. Worse chip probably. Don't sweat it

                    Anyone got a link to Magnus Carlsen’s team?

                    As long as we beat spurs tomorrow I couldn’t care less how my FPL team does... only problem is a Kane haul and it’s a rip to both
