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.

    Who would you sell from this team? 2FTs, 5.7itb

    Martinez, Forster
    Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Coufal, Kilman
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Gundo, Soucek
    Antonio, DCL, Bamford

    1. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Soucek if suspended, maybe upgrade Kilman

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Soucek & Kilman

    3. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Well, pretty unanimous. Soucek certainly if the RC holds up. Was between Kilman (to ?) and Forster (to Pope), otherwise.

    4. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years

      Depends what chips you have left, bench boost, wildcard & your strategy?
      If no wildcard, or bench boost do you want to spread your funds have 2 playing GKs, expensive defence, with Kane & KDB back relatively soon.
      If wildcarding GW25 & BB26 (1 week punt) do whatever this week.
      Would you play whoever you transfer Kilman for? Who would you bench / starting 11?
      If Soucek ban stands I'd sell him as unlikely to DGW26 & tough fixtures after from memory.

      Arghhh. I’m on 19 with 6 to play. Cutting it very very fine!

        Mainly need to dodge a Cancelo haul.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Very much so!

          An unlikely Gundo no show could work for those DCL bench points!

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      19 from 4 it seems 2.5 players advantage for me ... will be tight

  3. EWH2020

    When are we expecting this big DGW?

      Would like to get Burnley defence for the double, but not sure who should I pick.
      With 2ft I can do Barnes-> Rashford for this two nice fixtures and then drop Dallas/Coufal for Lowton or Taylor.
      What’s the best move here?
      1) Barnes Dallas -> Rash Taylor/lowton (yes Dallas has a dgw, but don’t see Leeds keeping a CS against Wolves and Saints so only relying on attacking return)
      2) Barnes Coufal -> Rash Taylor/lowton (Coufal has Sheffield at home next and it feels so wrong to sell him)
      3) ignore Rashford, just do Johnstone-> Pope and bench Martinez vs Brighton

      Team is:
      Martinez
      Stones - Coufal - Cancelo
      Son - Bruno - Sterling - Barnes
      Laca - DcL - Antonio

      Johnstone, Justin, Dallas, Raphinha

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Probably 3) I wouldnt want to transfer out any of your defenders

      2. Uncle Gamst
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        How about Justin (LIV) & Johnstone > Pope & Mee?

    3. Uncle Gamst
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      FPL Cup, who wins?

      a) 5 Justin
      v
      b) Dier, Son, Bamford

      a) Has DCL 1st on bench so if his Gündogan doesn't play I'm toast.

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Can't say I understand "5 Justin," but I can't imagine Gundo is benched.

        1. Uncle Gamst
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Sorry 5 points and Justin

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          5 pt leader plus Justin ; if Kane surprises you’re toast for sure

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Worth a hit to get this team for next week gives me six DGW players?

      Pope,
      Maguire, Dias, Digne, Stones
      Bruno, Salah, Foden
      Bamford, DCL , Antonio

      Martinez, Barnes, Coufal, Son

      Unsure benching Son, but bus team

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Depends what the hit is for

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Johnstone, Mitchell, Watkins > Pope, Digne, DCL

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Digne the only one I’m not sure if worth the -4. Could play son or coufal

          2. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Could go double Burnley instead of Digne

            1. g40steve
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Using my 2 ft

      2. Tinmen
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Insure on benching Son yet he’s last on the bench. I’d play

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Waiting to see how he plays hence bus team before final decision

      3. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Won't take hit with that bench

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Ta

    5. wulfrunian
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Do you think it's worth to do Barnes->Rashford/Rodriguez for a hit?Maybe Wc in gw25.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Short term hit may not pay off imo

      Anyone going double Burnley defence dgw24?

      Already got pope. If I get digne it makes it v difficult to get kane in dgw26

      So I'm likely to go Lowton instead....anyone else like this?? Thanks

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Good move i think, Lowton looked decent going forward. Pieters was even better but Taylor likely to be back soon I think

      2. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yep
        I’ve ignored Digne after seeing their defending

      3. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Lowton is perfect for bench fodder moving forward

        1. Flynny
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Cheers. If I'm not careful going to end up with so much money tied in defence I won't have flexibility to get kane easily for 26

          Got pope martinez dias cancelo already.....feel digne is too much when Lowton is 1.7m less

    7. Magic Zico

      Which combo would you prefer?

      B. Pope (FUL WBA) Coufal (SHU)

          Decent team but I’d lose Lacazette first and try and get triple city or Pope for the double

          1. Tinmen
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Cheers. Will find it hard to lose Martinez and struggling to get triple city without a-4

        2. Carefree Crew
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Bellerin looks a good transfer out. Guessing he's not enough to get to Cancelo?
          Agree with below on Lacazette. Fixtures & Aubameyang back.
          Short term Burnley DF for DGW?

      • Atimis
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thoughts on Robo to Burnley def for DGW?

        Means not getting Pope and could play Martinez

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I’m in same situation, I think it’s sensible to release the funds. I have Trent

        2. Forever In Our Shadow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I got Mee in this week and benched him. Rolled a transfer. I think the defender option is easier to deal with afterwards. You get Pope you either have 2 keepers or one you don’t want.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I did Robbo for Mee

      • Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years

        Who wins this H2H?

        2. Dallas + Rudiger + Cancelo + 2 points

          Whoever benched DCL over Soucek, I know it doesn't feel great right now. Soucek going from 3 to 0 points on a ludicrous decision was unlucky. DCL scoring and going from 5 to 12 with almost the last kick at Old Trafford in a 3-3 was pretty low odds.

          Positive thing about owning DCL is that we don't have to use a transfer to bring him in! Head over to the 'pick team' tab and you'll feel better 🙂

            • 1 Year

            DCL scoring at OT was not low odds

                It was in the 95 minute.

                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Had a big chance at the end of the first half as well. Not sure why people were benching him to be honest

              This is why you never give yourself benching headaches. Pick your assets and stick with them. I always have nailed fodder on the bench only so they can’t hurt me

              1. Bushwhacker
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 8 days ago

                This is fine until after you BB. Unless you WC soon after you always have a hangover of a bench which is too good

            Pope
            Cancelo Stones Taylor
            Salah Bruno Son Gundo
            Dcl Bamford Antonio
            Martinez Soucek Coufal Konsa

                No. Just hope Taylor plays. If not at least you'll have Coufal with a good fixture.

              DCL, Coufal, Konsa bench 🙁

              Benching headache turned into benchy migraine

                We'll find out around GW 25 or so.

              Is 6 DGWers for GW 24 enough? Still have 2FTs

                I’ve got 5. I think that’s enough.

                I think so. I have 6 and am rolling my FT

              Play both Cancelo and Stones in the double or bench one and play Rudiger who has a great fixture?

                • 4 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Have to play double City

                3 months, 8 days ago

                I'm playing Double City.
                Thought process is Chelsea have lost 3 of 4 v Sheffield!
                Silva out, Zouma hopefully back or Christensen probably playing who gets bullied physically. Sheffield have found a bit of form. I don't think the fixture is as attractive for a clean sheet as it looks. I think Chelsea will win but concede.
                Cancelo upside much higher than Rudiger.

              Martinez - ESR - Mitchell - Wilson*
              2FT £5.5M

              a) early transfer Wilson > DCL [FUL MCI] and bench another forward.
              +
              b) deadline transfer Mitchell > Mee/Lowton[cry FUL] and bench Son?

              Not sure if b) is worth it compared to having 2FT available GW25

                My bus team has Son benched for now. We'll see if I keep him there.

                1. djman102
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  But I would just do A and bench Son in your situation.

                    3 months, 8 days ago

                    The thought had crossed my mind, though it feels odd to bench a premium midfielder.

                      See how he does tomorrow, especially if the Kane back rumors are true.

              It was the right move to bench Dcl over Bamford, Antonio, Salah, Gundogan, Fernandes, Grealish,Coufal right?

              1. IRBOX ⚽
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                12 points begs to differ. It’s never the right choice to bench a man of DCL’s prowess against a defence with such mediocrity as Man United

              2. BeWater
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  I played Soucek, Son, Bruno, Salah, Gundogan, Antonio and Bamford. There is always a risk benching a player like that but this was about as severe a punishment as you could get.

                  Playing Coufal over DCL was not no

                Laca to Ings seem ok folks? Or save

                  Southampton look shambolic. Would avoid

                    I know but ings is class and such a differential now

                    1. IRBOX ⚽
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      DCL, Bamwford, Antonio, Watkins all superior options for a cheaper outlay

                      1. Tinmen
                        • 7 Years
                        3 months, 8 days ago

                        Aye fair enough but differential. Plus Ings is better than any of them?

                    Not sure that’s fair tbh ; three goals with good fortune for Newcastle ... Southampton had more than enough chances

                2FT and a benching headache before I begin! What would you do?

                Robbo > Lowton and roll?
                Is the luxury transfer of Dias/ Stones > Cancelo worth it?

                2FT 1.2itb
                Pope
                Dias, Stones, Coufal
                Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundogan (C)
                Antonio, Bamford, DCL
                (Martinez) (Soucek*, Robbo, Dallas)

                Cheers!

                Have Cancelo & gundo atm. Double up with attack or defense?

                  The boring answer "it depends on your team"

                    • 3 Years
                    3 months, 8 days ago

                    Double up with attack would leave the door open for Kane in gw 26 but would mean selling Salah for 3-4 gws.

                  I just don’t think someone like Sterling at 11.7M is worth the extra 6-7M over a stones or Dias.....

                  I’m just going to stick with my stones cancel gundo and if one misses a game then so be it.....

                Martinez, Forster
                Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Coufal, Kilman
                Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Gundo, Soucek
                Antonio, DCL, Bamford

                2FTs, 5.7itb -- Lost up in the air, of course, but initial thoughts on this?

                dgw24 -- Forster > Pope & save (makes 5 for the dgw)
                gw25 -- Pope, Soucek > Forster, Son (assuming Kane is back/healthy)

                Who could have guessed that not benching DCL would be a differential.

                  Absolutely crazy people went with this option... I’m mystified and even more so when they complain about the benched points

                    I benched Cancelo and Dias. Let's hope I don't regret it.

                Isn't Cavani now a decent option in fpl? I'm thinking about Lacazette to Cavani next GW as i don't have enough money for Rashford in midfield
