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.

    Only 0.6 itb

    Only 1 free transfer, is worth saving? I want to do ESR to raphinha next week so ideally I would free funds up by going Trent to Mee..

    Hmmm I decided to keep Chilwell for this week only in the hopes he starts, not feeling too bad considering the Burnley defence who I was considering getting as a replacement blanked this week. Most likely outcome?

    A) Starts and hauls
    B) Starts and fails
    C) No appearance, Robbo comes off the bench for him
    D) Cameo
    E) He starts, but does a Bednarek

    1. COVID-CASUAL
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I think he starts - Alonso will need a break - and it’s Sheffield so likely an easy 6pts

        I wouldn't be surprised if either he starts or comes off the bench in 2nd half... He's defo gonna play tomorrow.. just not sure about the minutes

      Why some here are rushing to get Kane - am I missing something?

      Will he get DGW or something?

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Almost certainly will get a DGW26. And Spurs' 2 fixtures will probably be the pick of the bunch

        I would prefer Mee.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Even with Pope?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I’d double up on Burnley for the doubles

    7. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3 months, 1 day ago

      With an average points per match of 5.5, Emi Martinez would be on pace for 209.5 total points come season’s end.

      Obviously that form is unsustainable, but his returns thus far have been ridiculous. Villa’s fixtures also get much tougher come GW30

      By comparison, Pope is averaging 5 PPM and would on pace for 182 points

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Actually from a keepers point of view the fixtures are great... loads of save points incoming...

        1. mixology
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Hmm I’d actually back Pope to outscore Martinez for the remainder of the season.

          That being said, I currently own both and it’ll be tough for me to get rid of Martinez. He may keep that magic going all season

          1. Kabayan
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            If i have spare FT, might bring Pope from 31

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

        5ppm not bad considering Burnely had a terrible start to the season.

        1. mixology
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Agree. Both keepers actually played same exact minutes so far , as well. I expected Pope to have played less

    8. fcsaltyballs

      Is Lowton nailed?

      1. aleksaa2

        Bar when he was injured, he played every minute

        Not sure i would bench Bamford as he's much better away from home. Although Coufal has a nice fixture.

      There's definitely something in that theory about the quality of your decision making deteriorating the more you think about something again and again. The bus team I decided after last deadline would have outscored my current team by 31 (minus Gundo's score); a few days ago my head was turned by Antonio, I started tinkering and ces't la vie.

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        It almost always ends up in overthinking every single move, also you are (sub)conciously being persuaded by other's opinions from reading them and usually it goes very south from there

      2. mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Honestly I think the less you tinker with your team the better. First time I’ve had a bench all season (preparing for next two DGWs) and I bench DCL and Martinez.

        I’m starting to actually believe you should only transfer a player out if he’s injured, and play your picks every gameweek with 4.5 fodder on bench that only comes in for cover.

        Once you start trying to be cute it backfires time and time again

      3. dogtanion
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Completely agree. My best ever season consisted of me making a transfer the night before the deadline if required then not thinking about it. DCL benching is something I would have never done in the past..just overthinking this season

      4. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        26 points lost actually (maths has never been my strong point).
        Original plan = Transfer in Watkins; DCL, Bruno (c)
        Overthinking = Transferred in Antonio (c); Bruno, Gundo (DCL benched)

        Four goals and an assist from Gundo & we'll call it even.

          3 months, 1 day ago

          This forum is bad news for decision making as it's post after post of the same questions but with different answers. And when the answers start to get similar you end up with group think and a very narrow view of what's actually going on the FPL world.
          I enjoy reading plenty of views but tend never to go on what anyone says here, force myself to go with my initial team selections.

        3 months, 1 day ago

        I'm thinking of changing my strategy.

        BB24, use 2FTs for doublers in 25, WC26 with a functional bench for 29.

        It allows me to get more doublers for 24/25 without having to worry. I can WC in 26 since I have no TC left, and my bench can be built to survive GW29.

        Thoughts? Because right now, it's looking like even you do an organic 26, you'll end up with a few Leeds players left over from GW25 who will only have a SGW anyway.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Same thought as have 3 Leeds players now and will have 6 double week players in 24

        2. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah, think that’s my plan. I could do with Soucek’s ban being overturned for the BB though, or I’ll need to take a hit to switch him and Kilman

        3. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Like it, especially because WC26 allows to get Son/Kane double up for thier best fixtures of the DGW, having them both and captain could match a BB score imo

        4. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Would you BB with Raphina, Coufal, Martinez and Grealish in 24?

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

            It is pretty good, isn't it?

            If I BB in 26, I'm probably gonna have at least 2 Leeds players leftover from 25. At least. So not sure it will even be stronger. I might get a DGW keeper, Bamford, Dallas, XX?

            It's uncertain.

        5. Earwicker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          True. But a -8 to replace 3 Leeds players for a total of 15 DGW with good fixtures on a BB sways it for me. Although I would love to BB withour relying on rotating City in my team.

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

            That -8 will cost you ahead of GW29 though. Unless you have a FH (which I don't) the Leeds players are safety net for 29.

            1. Earwicker
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              I have all my chips. Although I always ride out a blank because they tend to be poor fixtures w/o big hitters.

        6. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          The most boring answer would be: it depends on your team, but that is still the truth.

          The strategy is very sound, you are trying to maximise the number of dgw players for every single dgw and use it's upside and you'll also be able to "survive" the bgw with your bench and FTs.

          I also agree with you about Leeds players. I had a different idea and started preparing my BB26 team since the draw for the 5th and 6th round of the FA Cup and with the help of Ben Crellin's tweets. That got me into a position where Bamford will be my only dgw player in gw25, because I don't need him or any other Leeds player for gw26 and with one hit im the next 3 gw I'll be able to have 14/15 dgwers in gw26.

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

            Okay, but how do you handle GW29 then? You will only have 1 player for that in Bamford.

            1. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              I still have a FH. I was just talking about my strategy for the dgw in 26, but should've mentioned that.

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

                Yeah for you, that makes a lot of sense. But I have no FH so am sort of forced to decide gain now in 26 or gain later in 29.

        7. Phil's Stamps
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Looking at your squad, the only near-essential DGW 24/25 players I think you're missing are Dallas and Ings, both of which you can bring in with FTs. It would be nice to have Raphina (whom I would also put on the near-essential list for 25), but you have the same midfield 5 as myself and I don't want to lose any of them for him, considering we expect them all to have doubles in 26. The way Southampton are playing at the mo I don't think you want any more of their players. Any extra Burnley defender would be a nice sword, with Pope looking like a shield (if it looks like they'll have a DGW in 26 after the FA Cup fixtures you could probably justify a hit), but not essential.

          But although it's not for me, it's an interesting idea that could pay off.

        Why are people doing transfers when there are FA cup games next week before GW24 deadline?!

          Yeah it's stupid to make transfers this week in particular before FA Cup.

          Also we should get more news on DGW26 after the FA Cup games as well

        Benching DCL over Soucek & Grealish didn’t work out lol ... small margins

          Should be good move but not sure would have done before Burnley cup game

        I’ve got a bad feeling that West Ham are less likely to win Soucek’s appeal, because it was Mike Dean’s red card for Bednarek that was overturned last week. The powers-that-be will have a temptation to even it out. Otherwise, how would they even be able to allow Dean to keep refereeing Premier League games? Hope I’m wrong!

        Gundo or Jesus for next week?

        1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
          • 2 Years

          Gundo - more nailed than Jesus, on pens and in great form

        Soucek -> Lookman for the double and roll the 2.nd transfer?

          Not sure on Fulham players for the double. Should wait and see if WHU appeal Souceks RC

        2. Pope (cry, FUL), Coufal (SHU)

        Currently have Pieters (thinking about adding Lowton also for the DGW) is it as expected Taylor will come straight in for Pieters? Not really paid much attention to him despite having him - got an assist today! Also Taylor seems to have been on the brink of returning for ages, Pieters/Lowton double up too risky?

        1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Overkill with very little attacking potential. A SGW player like Cresswell could easily match them with a CS and attacking points against SHU

          1. Ronny Sandstone
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Yeah I guess, always tempting getting the DGW players though, both are cheap enough for bench fodder after, ideally I'd like Pope but would require a -8 to get him, shopping it Lidl rather than Sainsbury's next week really

        Who plays the most minutes over the next 4 x GW (when Man City might have 3 x DGW in 24, 26 & 27), which could be 7 games in 20 days 😮

        A. Ederson
        B. Dias
        C. Cancelo

        Who gets the most points:

        1. Ederson
        2. Dias
        3. Cancelo

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          B2

        2. LSK
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          A definitely plays the most.
          I’d guess C manages the most points through one or two big hauls, making up for the rotation.

        3. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          A 100%, B 90% will get all minutes
          2 probably

      21. fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        If you need to choose one or the other:

        1. Pope
        2. Mee

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 1 day ago

          I guess Mee has the added goal threat so go for him. But there are other options for the double in defence, not goalkeeper really.

          1. fcsaltyballs
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            That’s true... if I went Mee I’d have to bench Coufal (SHU) and Robertson (lei)

            But if I go Pope I have to bench Martinez (bha)

            Pope probably the right move?

            1. Kay317
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Yea I'd say so

        With DCL first sub what you reckon my chances are of one of Gundo or sterling not playing....pretty slim ain't they?

        1. dogtanion
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Very same here..small chance with Sterling perhaps but unlikely

        2. DGW Sane TC Fail....

          • 6 Years

          Haha my exact position as well, we have no chance. Chose Antonio over DCL....

          1. Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I couldn't decide whether to play sterling and gundo or spread the risk and play DCL instead of one of them. Should have gone with my gut.
