Top 10k managers holding transfers as popular captain Fernandes delivers

Fantasy Premier League managers ranked inside the top 10,000 appear to have been rather conservative with their transfers for Gameweek 23.

Ahead of Double Gameweek 24, there was less fluctuation in the template than we usually see among the upper echelons.

That could indicate that the number of managers with two free transfers for the Double Gameweek could be significant.

For the first time in 2021, there were no names to enter the top 10k template for the latest round.

As things stand, just five of these players have two fixtures in Double Gameweek 24, namely João Cancelo (£6.0m), John Stones (£5.2m), Rúben Dias (£6.1m), Ilkay Gündogan (£5.9m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m).

Meanwhile, Alex McCarthy (£4.6m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.7m) are the only top 10k template options with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 25.

Even among these unchanged 15 players, there were some interesting ownership alterations.

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) came into Gameweek 22 owned by 92.1% of the top-10k but only 83.9% of them possessed the Egyptian after Saturday morning’s deadline.

Some managers may have sold Salah to get their hands on Son Heung-min (£9.7m) for Sunday’s meeting with West Bromwich Albion.

His ownership at this level has increased by 2.2 percentage points between the two most recent Gameweek deadlines.

Even with a clean sheet against Burnley and Double Gameweek 24 around the corner, Cancelo, Stones and Dias each saw their ownership in the top 10k drop for Gameweek 23 by 0.3, 3.0 and 1.35 percentage points respectively.

A combination of form and fixtures helped Bamford, Michail Antonio (£6.7m) and Calvert-Lewin increase their stock in the upper echelons.

Two fixtures in Double Gameweek 25 helped Bamford to an ownership-rise of 1.4 percentage points for Gameweek 23.

Antonio’s went up by 7.2 percentage points although his new owners were dealt just a two-point score against Fulham.

And, ahead of facing Fulham (home) and Manchester City (home) next time out, Calvert-Lewin’s top 10k ownership has grown from 45.8% to 47.9% between Gameweeks 22 and 23.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) was the top 10k’s favourite captain option for Gameweek 23.

After winning the Fantasy Football Scout captain poll, 44.6% of those in the top 10k handed him the armband for Saturday evening’s meeting with Everton.

His latest attacking returns will be welcome for those managers, although they may still have half an eye on the runner-up Son.

24.1% of the top 10k are banking on the South Korean bucking the trend of his recent form and capitalising on a West Brom defence that has conceded at least twice in each of their last seven Premier League matches.

Those who captained Antonio for his uninspiring outing at Fulham will certainly be disappointed but might take some crumbs of comfort from knowing they were not alone.

The West Ham forward convinced 20.6% of the top 10k to captain him for Gameweek 23, almost certainly influenced by Fulham’s recent lapse from their defensive improvements which, of course, proved to be only a temporary one, based on their 0-0 draw on Saturday.

Bamford (4.3%) and Salah (2.2%) are the extreme differential captains this round as they prepare to face Crystal Palace and Manchester City respectively.

This week’s captaincy statistics made for some interesting figures in the effective ownership department.

Fernandes was the only asset above 100% for effective ownership in the top 10k, his total ending up at 143.5%.

Antonio was in second place with 96.7% while Bamford (88.5%), Salah (84.0%) and Son (76.3%) complete the top five.

Gameweek 23 was a quiet week for chips among the top 10k, just 0.4% of them deploying their second Wildcard.

That was the most popular of the chips with 99.3% of the top 10k electing not to use one ahead of Double Gameweeks 24 and 25.

Chip Use Overall

For the second Gameweek in a row, the Wildcard has received more attention outside the top 10k than inside it.

When we look at the worldwide chip usage for Gameweek 23, we can see 1.6% of all managers played their second Wildcard.

That works out at roughly 127,000+ managers pulling the trigger on a new squad this weekend.

    My plan had been BB in 24 and WC in 25. The Soucek suspension makes it a it more awkward. Which sounds better?
    1. BB next week- WC in 25. Pope, Lookman, Barnes (6.9m) in for Forster/Soucek/Brewster.

    2. Just make 1 ft and hold off on BB. Maybe Soucek-> Lookman.

    Martinez.
    Cresswell, Stones, Cancelo, Mee, Digne.
    Salah, Gundogan, Fernandes.
    Antonio, DCL.
    Forster, Son, Soucek, Brewster,
    1ft, 3.9m ITB. WC, BB left from the chips.

    1. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I would just use the FT

        3 months, 4 days ago

        Ok. The reason for doing the BB next week would be so that I could just focus on 11/12 starters in my WC team in 25 and not have to deal with the remains of the BB in the weeks after WC.

        Will consider more but likely to go ahead with BB next week unless I see clear reasons not to.

      BB

  2. Sturridge Wars

    Best Burnley player to bring in other then Pope? Have 2FT could double up on Lowton & Mee

    1. JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Do you already have DCL?

      1. Sturridge Wars
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yep. Just need burnley players

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          One is enough IMHO

  3. JJeyy
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Soucek the season ruiner. Either bench him and he hauls or play him and he blanks while my benched player scores.

    1. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Glad to see the back of him for 3 wks tbh. Nvr got it right wit him yet.
      Benched last two and benched stones for him this wk. Good riddance

    2. Sz21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      53 points in his last 9 games.

      I've seen a lot of people talk about Soucek being a troll but maybe all of us who have benched him despite him returning as much as he has are the real trolls here! He has done his bit.

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I got him for Son this week. Could be worse. Could have bought Bednarek last week.

    3. Nightrain_
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think for a 5 - 5.5, you have to expect he will only give you a 2-3 pts so if the avg is better than that then he's a 'beast'

  4. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    So how many dgw players have u for nxt wk?

    I have
    Pope
    2 x City
    2 x Everton

    1ft but Soucek/Antonio

    6 is enough??

    1. BDA Shadow
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      There's no excuse to not have 3 City.

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Sorry ment 3 City.
        Stones/Cancelo/Gundo

        1. BDA Shadow
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          There you go. Honestly the selection is dire I think you're fine with that. Maybe a Lookman or something if you have a FT and you're WC'ing out of it the following week.

    2. Nightrain_
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think 6 is great, same boat except for Pope

      Thinking to ship Steer for Pope but I have Martinez so is it better to ship Coufal for Mee ?

      What do you think ?

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I'd go Pope tbf.
        Altho really wish I didn't play him ovr Martinez this wk.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Steer to Aerola, no point having funds rotting on the bench

  5. BDA Shadow
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    DCL on the bench, that hurts. Couldn't make a last minute decision between benching Gundogan vs Sterling and Liverpool's defence is actually worse than United's slo I just kept them both in.

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      The risk you take with a strong squad.
      I benched Soucek and TAA last week but you can't get it right everytime, if you did you'd be no.1!

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers to that. All this damn spare money and not enough transfers to fix it. Granted, I've gone all the way to third sub this season so it's not always bad.

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I enjoy having a strong squad every season, but it's particularly useful this season. As long as you're happy with you're choices when you select your team there's no point worrying about it later on.
          Mee starting over Cancelo could be a little annoying for me this week though.

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Not sure Liverpool’s second string defense is worse than United’s tbh ; not at home.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Over the course of the season United have conceded less and kept more clean sheets. Considering Liverpool are just about in their worst state of injuries I can't imagine that would change now either. I don't think there's a massive amount in it but at least the United defence is "settled". Evidently they played terrible and it was almost certainly the wrong call in hindsight.

  6. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Sorry for repost

    Martinez, Pope,
    Mee*, Dias*, cancelo*, digne*, coufal,
    Bruno, rashford, gundo*, bowen, ESR
    DCL*, Bamford, antonio

    1 FT, 7M ITB

    Tempted to bench boost this bunch in 24 but realistically I would bench Bowen (SHU), ESR (LEE), Coufal (SHU) & Martinez (BHA). Not sure they can score significantly.

    Good idea or go with the popular WC 25, BB 26 strategy?

    WC, BB & FH all in hand

    1. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Depends on FA Cup reschedules

    2. RubeRx
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      save BB

  7. Egg noodle

    OMG just realised that Son is owned by 55.6%

    Sofa time tomorrow

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Isn't that pretty much the lowest he's been all season?

      1. Egg noodle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I know DCL was 65ish at his peak... And Son was never as high as that.

    2. Nightrain_
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      With no Kane and a dip in form for Spurs, i won't be surprised if that game ended 1-1 with no Son's involvement

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        West Brom are where they are because they've been poor. But Allardyce will pack their defence. After their dip in form and no Kane it won't be the Spurs that some are anticipating.

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Anyone who has watched their last two games knows what to anticipate. Alladyce might fancy knicking it.

  8. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Thoughts guys? (No FT and 3.8mn itb)

    Mcarthy (Forster)
    Pieter Rudiger Cancelo (Justin, Lewis)
    Salah Fernandes Gundogan SON (SOUCEK)
    Antonio Bamford DCL

    A) Son to Sterling/Mahrez for -4 hit for DGW
    B) Soucek to James Rod for -4 hit for DGW (bench Bamford)
    C) No hit

    1. Nightrain_
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Sterling and Mahrez is prone to rotation and Hames probably won't justify the -4 so C could be best here

  9. Nightrain_
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Which one will get you more points ?

    A. Play Martinez, ship Coufal for Mee
    B. Ship Steer for Pope and bench Coufal for (Saka / Bamford / Grealish) ?

    Thanks guys

  10. Gun gun

    That is surely bednarek owngoal, how isit almiron goal.? Didnt it change direction?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes. Should be an own goal, significant deflection for me. Even some assists this season seem dubious because ball is deflected significantly before scorer gets the goal.

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

      Change of direction and/or a deflection doesn't automatically mean an own goal. It is only an own goal if the original shot is not on target but the ball somehow goes in the net. They deemed the original shot to be on target.

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        True story it was on target, but fair chance McCarthy had it covered behind Bednarek if the unlucky Pole had left it. A bad few days for him. He's a good defender though, will bounce back.

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Its not because no matter how weak the shot, no matter how easy it was for keeper or defender to clear (it was NEVER going in had Bednarek got out the way) ... it was on target.

  11. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Three straight weeks
    Benched Bamford - 15 points
    Benched Raphinha - 9 points
    Benched DCL - 12 points

    SO sick of this...

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Why is this worse than not owning them at all?
      Good squad players who will increase in value and hopefully keep their form when you start them.

    2. Nightrain_
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think it's sensible to bench all of em when you have better pick on paper.
      Some luck definitely involved when rolling the dice, that's the part of the game my friend, cheers

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Hard to see some logic there, especially DCL

      1. gellinmagellan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Gundo is in incredible form right now and on pens. The decisions were made with logic, and because you can't play all out attack anyway. Like the others said, some luck involved when rolling the dice. Sucks though when it continuously goes against but other than the Bamford benching last to last GW, both these came because the rest were better picks on paper.

    4. BDA Shadow
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I've had the exact same. Really screwed what was a very good rank so far.

    miserable day for the scout picks

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Not great for them was it.
      Bad picks or unlucky.. in your opinion?

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year

        Its always luck

    Would you BB in DGW34:

    Martinez (bha) - Dallas (ars) - Justin (LIV) - Antonio (SHU)

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      GW25 would be better I guess

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Really? With below team?

        Gundogan > JWP/Raphine for 35 to give 3 x DGW'ers

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Martinez vs LEI
          Justin Vs AVL
          Antonio Vs someone
          Raphinha or JWP DGW

          Atleast on paper, it looks better to me

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah, cheers, will look at that more closely

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      No.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I reckon Martinez & Antonio make it worthwhile?

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I think there will be better options later in the season but it's always a gamble with any chip. And I'm not even top 500k yet this season so my opinion means very little.

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Pope*
      Cresswell - Stones* - Keane/Digne*
      Salah - Bruno - James* - Gudogan* - Foden*
      DCL* (c) - Bamford

      For -4pts. Everton first game is vs Fulham 😮

        With above bench for extra pointage 😎

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Might end 0-0 😉

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          CS for Keane/Digne 😎

      3. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Good starting 11 but your bench is still rubbish..except Antonio swaps with Bamford if he is fit.

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          How is that bench rubbish? 😆

          1. Snevitz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Dallas away to Arsenal and Justin vs Liverpool?
            They are two tough fixtures for defenders.

            1. Jafooli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Arsenal are rubbish and Justin is attacking?

    4. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Dunno yet. At this rate I'll not get any double players for a DGW on the bench so probably use it for a single GW where the bench looks like it has decent prospects. Depending on WC after GW29, mightn't pick a second keeper.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        No WC or FH left

    5. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Wouldn’t you prefer doubles?

  16. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Do we get the DGW 26 fixtures before 24 deadline?

    Moves this week depend on whether to use WC in 25 OR Not which inturn depends on GW26 fixtures.

      Since FA cup is in midweek, I guess we'll know about DGW and BGW before next deadline

      Hope so

    What teams are likely to have a DGW26?

    1. Bushwhacker

      All depends on FA Cup

    FPL need to work out how they can return points for rescinded RC's.

    Mad that the original points (negative/zero) stand when players were incorrectly penalised.

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      No they shouldn’t. Points are final after the final whistle, no point creating confusion

        Only suggesting for my players, not everytime

          Lmao so honest

    Antonio’s stats from yesterday’s game is an eyesore

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      He’s allowed to have a bad game, still one of the best budget forwards

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Tiny park, very compact from Fulham

    3. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      When WHU got forward he was involved

  20. Goodricke
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Antonio C fail doubled with Souchek over DCL! Yesterday i had Bruno C and Souchek benched. I hae to loearn to stop second guessing myself!

    1. Goodricke
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      and to spell!

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Chin up, many benched DCL, in hindsight it was a silly decision but at the time it was justified

  21. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Have 1FT... who else to add for DGW24??

    Currently have Pope, DCL, Stones, Dias, Gundo

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      None, save FT.

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      It’s a rubbish DGW don’t bother overloading or you’ll have no players with a DGW for the coming weeks

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Digne for kicks

  22. De Gea is GOAT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Any chance of a Gundo no show? DCL first on bench XD

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Benching a striker for a deep lying CM doesn’t make sense, especially v Pool

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Benching a decent striker away at United makes no sense at all. Their home record is trash. If Ole can’t park the bus and break he’s in trouble.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          As long as Lindelof and Maguire are the CB pairing, I’d always be playing the attacker against United. I’m saying this as a United fan...

      2. BDA Shadow
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Gundogan hasn't been playing as a deep lying CM stop your nonsense. And it has nothing to do with position on paper, not to mention your ignorance of their different classifications. The game is about points and points only, and Gundogan has been getting plenty of them. Stop your nonsense.

    2. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yep that was me trying to be too clever. Im sure i wasnt the only one

  23. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    12 and 9 points in the last 2, with max bonus in both games.

    Where the DCL haters at now? Thought DCL didn’t get bonus points...

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      To be fair he had a pretty bad barren spell prior to these two weeks...

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      lol ... it’s just a game 😉

  24. FantasyHero

    Apparently Kane going to play. Hoping for a Son (C) haul!

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Triply annoying as a Kane owner, non-Son owner and DCL first sub. Maybe my luck is in and Jose will leave him on the bench.

  25. Pukki Blinders

    3 months, 4 days ago

    Are people benching Bamford next week? Arsenal away, can’t see it being a goalfest

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Just never know with Leeds I guess

  26. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Martinez
    Coufal Cancelo Stones
    Salah Fernandes Gundogan Raphinha
    Bamford Antonio DCL

    Forster Robertson Soucek Ferguson

    2 FT, 6.9 itb

    Is... Forster >> Pope (play over Martinez) enough, and roll the other FT ??

    Thanks

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Anyone... please

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah look well set there. I imagine Soucek gets his ban overturned so you might have a Soucek/Raphina/Bamford benching headache

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks mate... yeah it’s a tough one with that trio isn’t it

    3. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes looks good

  27. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    4 captain failures on the bounce ... ugh ...

    What's your score prediction for the TOT - WBA game?

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I’d love a big Sam masterclass

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Probably 0-0 or 1-0, something like that. Low scoring game.

  29. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Thoughts on these transfers. 2FTs

    Mitchell & Maddy to Mee & lookman

    Martinez (steer)
    Cancelo coufal mitchell* (Dallas dier)
    Sterling gundo Bruno son maddy*
    Antonio DCL (bam)

    Good thing about not owning Dominic this week is almost 50% of his owners benched him. Less damage. 😀

    Whether to bring him or not is a tricky decision though.

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

      I might get him if one of Salah Gundogan no-show happens 😉

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Unlikely then 😀

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

          Absolutely. Hate how silly goals were conceded by United.

          1. Jumpernot
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I guess that makes up for all the silly penalties they get awarded

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

              LoL

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I would have got him on for Kane, but Jose seems intent on rushing him back as they can't beat WBA without him.

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Expecting him to start?

    3. fedolefan
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Any big player missing out is going to mean 12 points coming in for he's first on most benches. So got to hope everyone shows up.

    4. PL Ball
      • 9 Years

      Where can you check those stats. I presume livefpl, but where exactly?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        https://www.livefpl.net/top10k

        For top 10k. Their is a local tier as well where you can check ownership around your rank: https://www.livefpl.net/local

    5. Party time
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Hahaha...

      Spot on!

      I don’t have him but I am gonna get him now. It’s better to have 50% damage than 100% damage

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

      Almost 50%, wow.
