How an early Wildcard helped me into the top 1k – and what I have learned

Currently sitting well inside the top 1,000, Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy looks back at the success of his early second Wildcard – and explains how he plans to cope without the prized chip going forward.


Nearly a month ago now (January 6, to be precise), I wrote an article about the pros and cons of playing the second Wildcard early in Gameweek 18, especially for those of us that had used the first one early as well.

After starting Gameweek 18 ranked at 41,610th, I’ve now moved up to 679th at the start of Gameweek 22. It’s safe to say that the early Wildcard has worked pretty well. In this article, I want to quickly touch on why it worked well, and what my future plans are without a Wildcard in hand.

Why did it work

As I mentioned in my article at the time, we were in a unique situation where there was a chance to attack a big Blank Gameweek followed by a big Double Gameweek, without any “normal” Gameweeks in between. They also both involved teams with good fixtures, good players and perhaps even more importantly, good fixtures following the Double. Those teams were Manchester City and Manchester United.

Of course, along the way, you need some lucky. Back in my January article, I wasn’t predicting John Stones (£5.2m), João Cancelo (£6.0m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) to all score 17+ points in an individual Gameweek. Sometimes the luck comes all at once, and I couldn’t have been much luckier, really.

But the logic was there of targeting a Blank, Double and following fixtures all at once. At the time I had no Manchester City players, and they looked key going forward. A Free Hit would have plugged the gap in Gameweek 18, but I’d have been left with lots of hits from that point forward.

I’ve seen a few people now contemplating an early Wildcard but it does feel like the boat has been missed on the opportunity now. We’re so close to Double Gameweek 24, which is when we’ll likely have all the information we’ll need for a potential Blank Gameweek 29, and Double Gameweek 26, that using the Wildcard in Gameweek 23 could be a disaster. I’m not sure anyone’s team is in such a bad state they need to use it now, and Wildcards are such a good way to attack a set of Gameweeks that using it now would be sub-optimal, I would say.

Future Planning

One thing I’m finding is planning feels even more crucial than normal without a Wildcard, and so many big Gameweeks still to manage. I’ve already seen several content creators talk about getting players in for a few weeks because they’re Wildcarding soon, and I don’t have that luxury.

That’s why in Gameweek 21, I bought in Son Heung-min (£9.7m) and Jack Grealish (£7.8m) and ended up ignoring Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m). It’s likely that Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa will have a good Double Gameweek so I felt they were better long-term moves, to essentially save my transfers down the line. Everton have, of course, ended up getting a Double Gameweek before that – and this is naturally one of the downsides to Wildcarding so early.

With the Free Hit chip, I’m keeping my options open. Before we get more confirmed fixtures, I’m essentially trying to get in players like above that are good for right now, but also for the Doubles. If my team is set for Gameweek 26, then I will use the Free Hit in Gameweek 29 – but depending on how my team is looking for Gameweek 29, I could just use the Free Hit in the big Double Gameweek instead. I do have my Triple Captain as well but due to the number of fixtures that still need to be rearranged, there’ll probably be other chances to use it.

To Keep Doing

Fernandes stakes captaincy claim ahead of Gameweek 9 meeting with West Brom

I wanted to quickly touch on some things that I’ve changed in my strategy to FPL this season which I plan on carrying on for the rest of the season. I’m sure some of this will be simple to many, or things you’re already doing, but it’s helped me so far.

I will caveat straight away to say again that of course luck is a big part of FPL. Just because this has worked this season doesn’t mean it will work next season, but for now I’ll keep doing with it.

Captaincy

I think sometimes we underrate just how important the captaincy is. We might hear things like “I’ll just captain him instead” or “I’ll take a punt on him”. Both ways of doing things are fine, but this year I’ve made a conscious decision to always have who I believe is the best captain each week, even if that means transferring out a big hitter. This sounds simple, but often FPL managers will forgo the best captain because they don’t want to sell a big hitter. Obviously who the best captain is, is subjective but I’ve tried to target them in advance, and unless there’s something major which happens in between I won’t change my mind, even for “form”. For example, my next captain in Gameweek 23 will be Son.

I’ve sold Salah, Son, and Kane twice already this season and I’ve found not having value wrapped up in them makes my decisions much easier knowing I can just buy them back as there’s no money “lost”.

I’ve also not looked to take any punts. It’s whoever I think the best points potential is regardless of what everyone is doing. Will that player be 150% effective ownership or 50%? I don’t particularly care, and have ignored ownership so far this season.

Form and data
WOLAVL dd

One thing I said I wanted to do at the start of the season was using a more statistic-based approach to my decisions, but also reduce the amount of statistics that I use. Expected data incorporates so many other statistics so I’ve stuck largely to that, especially ‘per 90’ data.

I often look at the season-long data as well, rather than looking for differences in much smaller sample sizes like last four Gameweeks. There’s obviously a balancing act here, but I’ve tried to trust players putting up good numbers over a long period of time who have good fixtures. Simple, but so far effective.

An example of this is Grealish vs Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) vs James Maddison (£7.3m). I can see that Barnes and Maddison have scored well recently but when I needed a £7m+ midfielder recently, there was no question in my mind that Grealish was the one.

Grealish has an expected goal involvement per 90 minutes (xGp90) for the season of 0.51, compared to Barnes at 0.37 and Maddison at 0.28. Maddison has scored a few goals recently, but his xGp90 is just 0.14 which is low, and his creativity isn’t that high despite creating lots of chances through corners. I’m ignoring an “in-form” player right now in the hope his returns will start to dry up, but there’s no doubting he’s playing well at present.

There’s nothing wrong with looking at recent Gameweeks to spot any major differences, but too often we are looking for something to confirm what we want to see.

Form is something we could probably talk about in a separate article, but it’s something I’ve largely tried to ignore, hence choosing captaincies in advance. Rather than look at what they’ve scored recently in pure FPL points, I’d rather look at their underlying numbers for the season and their opponents. Son this week is a great example. Spurs looked really poor against Brighton, and I’m writing this before a game against Chelsea that I’m not expecting anything from, but West Brom are a truly awful defence. Even without Kane, I’d still back Son to get points, although I can see why people might be wary, especially with Antonio as a good alternative this week.

Limiting Defender transfers

Wildcarding twice before Gameweek 19 will help with this of course, but I’ve tried to limit defender transfers. Outside of the occasional big return like we’ve seen recently, the majority of the time a defender’s ceiling is quite low. You’re looking at six points a lot of the time.

This is one of the reasons I’ve only made four defender transfers all season (outside of Wildcards). I’m trying to make sure I can focus most of my transfer on attack and captaincy where the biggest amount of points are likely to come. The only defender transfers so far are:

  • GW2 – Vinagre to Digne
  • GW7 – Alexander-Arnold to Chilwell
  • GW15 – Chilwell & Lamptey to Robertson & Coufal

It’s something I’ll try and continue doing, especially when we have Manchester City defenders in the form of their lives, who are also very cheap and carry fairly big upside, like with Cancelo.

    Robbo to Shaw or Rudiger or Mee?

    1. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I went Robbo Shaw, i'd say that move

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

      The latter

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

        Nee for the DGW

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

          *Mee

    3. Prison Mike
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      AWB or Rudiger, do you really think Ole will play Shaw twice in a double game week?

  2. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Which 3 defenders to start?

    A) Dias (LIV)
    B) Stones (LIV)
    C) Coufal (FUL)
    D) Dallas (CRY)
    E) Bednarek (NEW)

    Looks like some points left on the bench no matter the decision. Cheers!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      A c and d

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Thank you

    2. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      ABC or ABD

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Cheers

    3. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Same defence as me but I have Justin Instead of bedbarek. I'm playing both stones and dias as pool look so bad

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        So I'd go ABC in your case

      2. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Thanks, and that makes sense!

  3. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Was thinking about Robbo -> AWB, but now with DGW maybe I should get Digne or Mee instead. What do you think?

    Martinez
    Robbo Stones Cancelo Dallas (Mitch)
    Salah Bruno Son Gundo (Biss)
    Firmino Antonio Bam

    Pick one to replace Robbo:
    1) AWB
    2) DGW
    3) Mee

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Digne

      1. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Only 1 CS for Digne vs 6 for Mee, and 1.2 cheaper. Not really sure if he's worth it.

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          He s more exciting though 🙂

          1. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Very true, not excited at all about Mee. I have 3.8 itb as it stands too and I have no idea where to put that money.

            LOL. You’ll be suggesting that fantasy football should be fun next!

      Double Game Week

      1. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Haha I thought it was strange when I was typing, I agree though, DGW is looking really good 🙂

        1. deshawn7
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Tbh I was going for Shaw but now with DGW, Mee is very tempting

          1. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Yeah they have 3 nice fixtures. Robbo might drop tonight too.

    3. deshawn7
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Probably DGW

    4. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Trying to decide similar, was all set on TAA to Shaw but now thinking second City defender or Burnley might be the way to go.

      1. deshawn7
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I would get a united defender after dgw24, maybe in place of Digne

      2. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        It's crazy how lose Mee/Tark are in TSB, only 1-2%. So definitely a differential for now, I'd probably plan on switching to MU after GW24 like deshawn7 says.

  4. Glokollur nr.1
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    My defense is a mess. I have 2 FT and 0.7 ITB.
    Any recommendations really appreciated.

    Stones, Chilwell, Dallas, Mitchell, Casey

    Thanks!

    1. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Chilwell to Dias/Cancelo. Casey to Digne/Mee.

    2. baines is god
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      mitchell to lowton/pieters this week. next week sell chilwell to digne

  5. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    All good here chaps? Right subs and order?

    Martinez

    Which combo would you play this GW?
    A) Digne

    Nth to do. Since i gt two FT, sell steer for sanchez?

  8. El Lobito 10
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Son. Seven games v WBA, no goals, no assists. Spurs awful right now and Son too. Yet everyone wants to captain him lol

    1. baines is god
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      You do realise that historic record vs a team has no bearing on the probability of him producing anything this weekend against them?

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        How do you know?

      2. Ruth_NZ
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        You do realise that the players don't think that way?

        1. El Lobito 10
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          You don't know that

          1. Ruth_NZ
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Sure I do. There is plenty of record of players saying that they always feel they'll score against team A but always seem to struggle against team B.

            Perhaps you didn't realise that I was disagreeing with Baines, not you. 🙄

            1. baines is god
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              conformation bias. It might exist slightly in players' minds but how much that impacts reality. Are you really telling me Son's going into the weekend thinking oh god no it's WBA

              1. Ruth_NZ
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Psychology affects performance. Simple as that.

                No, I'm not saying that does or does not apply to Son, just correcting your "historic record against a team has no bearing on probability" comment. It does have an influence; how big an influence will obviously vary from one player to another.

                Footballers tend to be quite superstitious as a breed, you know.

            2. El Lobito 10
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Haha you're bang on

        Tell Suarez and Norwich

      4. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Some players tend to score more against some teams and it has been studied to be correct.

        1. baines is god
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          evidence, link? Of course individual players have records that do well against other teams, but that's just the nature of variance. In some cases there may be a stylistic reason why a player is better suited to playing against a team, but yeah trying to look at past record vs an opponent as an indicator for future performance is pretty much nonsense

          1. Ruth_NZ
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            There is no evidence you would recognise. Players in general, however, believe it to be true. They don't think in terms of variance, only people like you do.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I can see Spurs winning that 2-0 or 1-0, with probably one Son goal involvement.

      1. Gun gun
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Lol i can see westbrom winning 1-0

    Note to All

    All these teams are 9 players out of 11 identical.

    These little intricacies make next to no difference.

    Martinez/Pope
    Cancelo
    Soucek
    Gundogan
    Grealish
    Salah
    Fernandes
    Antonio
    Bamford (maybe Watkins ooo)

    Pick a defender from Stones, Cresswell, Coufal,
    DCL - maybe
    Son - No

  11. Gun gun
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Salah to mount for a punt? If salah impress or smth. I still can bring him back

    1. nadman89
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      god no

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Keep salah

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

    2 hours with my head down trying to make plans.

    I think I've settled on a pretty good one though.

    Martinez Johnstone
    Stones Cancelo Digne Coufal Mitchell
    Salah Fernandes Son Grealish Gundo
    DCL Bamford Antonio
    2 FTs.

    23: Johnstone > Pope
    24: Mitchell > Dallas
    25: Coufal > XX (this defender will double in 26 and play in 29)
    26: 2 FTs to do whatever

    I like my front 8 generally. Rotating them around works nicely. In 26, I can do Fernandes out if he has no double to fund Antonio > Kane. Or else keep him and shift Antonio to a DGW forward if WHU lose to United in the cup.

    BB26, and come out with Bamford, Dallas, GW29 playing defender and we go forward. Deadend 29, WC 30.

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      The Gw23 and 24 plan is enough to think about for now and I like the plan. Will you play Pope over Martinez this week?

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

        Yes. Pope over Martinez.

        And yeah you're right. I deliberately left it very open ended for 25/26 transfer plans. The Cup will decide what I should do for those.

    2. In Bale We Trust
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I’m following the exact same line of action and am even getting Pope in this week. I like it.

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      That took 2 hours? Looks good tho

  13. Clickzy
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Rudiger a viable option? 0.1 away from affording Dallas

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yes solid and cheap

  14. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Martinez
    Coufal Stones Cancelo
    Salah Fernandes Gundogan Raphinha
    DCL Bamford Antonio

    Forster Soucek Robertson Ferguson

    1 FT, 6.9 itb

    1. Forster >> Pope (for the doubles)
    2. Ferguson >> Dallas (play over Robbo)
    3. Save FT

    Cheers.

  15. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    A Smith Rowe to raphinha. Will keep DCL on the bench and give me a even benching headache...

    B DCL to Antonio. Could get DCL following gw no issue as have 2 fts. Am a bit worried not owning Antonio v fulham and Sheffield ...

    C neither move and back to square one 🙂

    Thanks and gl

    Any suggestions after tonights game? Currently have DCL on the bench but he looked much better today... I was considering Sterling > Son but now thinking Salah or not at all. Maybe bring Rudiger in for Holding or Mitchell?

    Martinez
    Shaw Dias Stones
    Salah Sterling Bruno Grealish Saka
    Antonio Bamford
    Button DCL Holding Mitchell

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years

    For players that are tight on cash (Sterling over Gundo or some other picks), I genuinely think a Salah > Raphinha strategy this week works well.

    You get a really nice fixture this week. No one is capping Salah for the next 3 weeks anyway, you prep yourself for DGW25 and Raph is benchable in 24.

      Yes for raphinha, big no for selling Salah for him imo

        Salah’s blanked in seven of his last eight games now. We’re only keeping him because he’s Salah. There’s literally no other reason.

          This. The fixtures are not there, the form is not there. We're not gonna cap him. There's no reason to hold him any longer unless you have other priorities.

    So Mee seems the more popular pick to bring in for the double over Tarkowski.
    Does everyone agree?

      Yep, my plan too

  19. Gun gun

    Start shaw or dallas?

    1. JackJack
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Shaw

    2. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Shaw

  20. Alisson WondHaaland

    Based on everything thats gone wrong in terms of captaincy these past 5 or so weeks, Im now thinking I just ignore logic and captain Salah

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Why not 🙂 I have the feeling he will do well

    2. The Ilfordian

      Klopp said Mane may be back. If so, I reckon that would make the team and Salah more threatening

      Ryan and Chilwell for Mee and Pope? This would leave me with 6 double gameweekers for gw24 is this ideal?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Just do one . Chilwell might play this gw

        1. BaleKaneSon
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Got two free transfers and .4 itb currently team looks like this. Chilwell will free up a lot of cash.

            1FT

            A) Chilwell to Lowton and play him vs Brighton(H)
            B) Delay the transfer by a week, play Chilwell vs Sheffield(A) in the hopes he starts. If he doesnt Id get Robbo or Stones off the bench

            Why is everyone choosing Mee over Tarkiwski? Am I missing something?

            1. potatoace
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Mee gets the goals thus far

            2. Alisson WondHaaland
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Price and current total points probably. I still cant look past Lowton tbh

                Why's that , price?

            Who would you have first on the bench

            A. Dias
            B. Digne

            I'm starting Gundogan, Cancelo, Salah, Shaw & Bruno in those respective matches

            1. baines is god
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              dunno who your 3rd defender is but i'd be starting Dias.

              1. Toughie
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Coufal is my other starting defender

                1. baines is god
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 2 days ago

                  close call. Neither with much attacking threat. West Ham probably marginally higher Clean Sheet % chance but Dias higher bonus point chance. Definitely Dias number 1 sub ahead of Digne

            2 FT
            Johnstone, Robertson > Pope, Digne?

            McCarthy - Johnstone
            Robertson - Cancelo - Stones - Justin - Dallas
            Salah - Bruno - Son - Soucek - Gundogan
            Antonio - Adams - Bamford

              Save 1ft imo. Just get Pope

            Would you play double city defence vs Liverpool or play Justin instead?

            1. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              I'm playing Justin and Cancelo and benching Stones.

              Play Justin spread the risk, wolves is not a bad fixture, and he’s on fire..
