How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Gameweek 30

Harry Kane (£11.6m) is the key figure among the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers for Gameweek 30.

Ahead of a Sunday afternoon trip to Newcastle, Spurs’ centre-forward has been trusted with a significant number of armbands.

71.3% of the top 10k captained him for Gameweek 30, a decision that has led him to boast effective ownership at this level of 164.6%.

As you can see, Kane’s majority in the captaincy conversation proved to be considerably wider than our latest poll indicated.

The premium forward accrued the support of 39.2% of voters in that ballot, with Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) in second place on 17.7%.

However, there is a gap of 53.7 percentage points between Kane and the Manchester United midfielder as far as top 10k captaincy is concerned.

Leeds duo Raphinha (£5.7m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.7m) were the key differentials, backed by just 3.6% and 3.2% of top 10k managers for the Gameweek 30 armband.

Such managers were arguably unfortunate to see the two players register scores of five and two points respectively as Leeds failed to take their chances in a 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, 1.4% of the top 10k are waiting for Son Heung-min‘s (£9.4m) involvement in Spurs’ trip to Newcastle.

The chips were largely held in reserve by the top 10k in Gameweek 30, the Wildcard and Bench Boost proving the most popular.

Even then, just 2.2% of the managers at this level opted to claim points for their substitutes this week and 2.6% pulled the trigger on a brand new squad.

Those numbers mean chip usage among the top 10k looks like this after Gameweek 30.

49.0% in the upper echelon have already deployed three from a possible four this season, while 30.0% have exhausted their supply.

Such figures will be encouraging for anyone with an eye on the top 10k with a selection of chips left to use.

While only a small number of top-10k managers, we can still learn a few things from studying the squad templates.

The most notable observation is, of course, the level of investment in Chelsea’s defence ahead of their 5-2 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Edouard Mendy (£5.2m) appears to have been the most fashionable, selected by 69.1% of these Wildcarding managers, presumably on the basis of his nailed-on status as Chelsea’s number one goalkeeper.

57.9% of this week’s top-10k Wildcarders chose Antonio Rüdiger (£4.7m) with 46.4% picking Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m).

While only the former was involved at Stamford Bridge, both players scored zero points.

A Gameweek 30 meeting with Sheffield United was appealing enough for the key Leeds triple-up to maintain a presence in these squads despite more challenging fixtures on the horizon.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men face Manchester City (away), Liverpool (home) and Manchester United (home) in the next three Gameweeks but 40.1% of these Wildcarding managers held onto Stuart Dallas (£5.1m), 52.5% Raphinha and 70.7% kept faith with Bamford.

Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) is absent from the top-five midfielders in this template although there is still Liverpool representation.

59.9% of Wildcarding managers in the top 10k selected Diogo Jota (£6.7m), making him the second-most-fashionable midfielder in such squads.

Top 10k Most Owned Players – Gameweek 29

Top 10k Most Owned Players – Gameweek 30

Midfield and defence appear to have been the hotbed for top-10k transfers between Gameweeks 29 and 30.

As you can see, very little changed in the way of ownership among forwards and goalkeepers between the two most recent deadlines.

Kane, Bamford and Ollie Watkins (£6.6m) remain the most popular front-men, in that order, while Emiliano Martínez (£5.4m) and Alphonse Areola (£4.6m) are still the most fashionable goalkeepers at this level.

Fernandes has clawed back his domination of the midfield department, his top-10k ownership rising from 69.3% in Blank Gameweek 29 to 86.9% after Saturday’s deadline.

Similarly, Son managed to increase his representation in squads at this level by 8.7 percentage points during the international break.

Luke Shaw (£5.3m) has broken into the template with 33.1% ownership for Gameweek 30 at the expense of Aaron Cresswell (£5.9m).

    Martinez
    Shaw, Rudgier, Dias, Veltman
    Bruno, Son, Auba Gundo
    Kane, Watkins

    McCarthy, Raphinha, Bamford, Struijk

    My teams is a total mess at the moment. Three non-starters yesterday plus McCarthy in the squad, and 5 players from Leeds/Villa who have dreadful upcoming fixtures, plus Auba.

    How does Auba, Raphinha, and Watkins to Jota, Lingard, and DCL sound ?

    It leaves 4m ITB to upgrade Rudgier, Gundo and Struijk if they continue to be no shows.

      I find gameweeks like this one, interesting. Chelsea vs West Brom (with Palace to follow) screams double Chelsea defence. If you made that move, you’ve only been punished by the international break - that is all. Your planning was 100% spot on.

        I think they are positive moves. I have DCL and am considering a move to Nacho. But you could do Gundo to Maddison at a later date and cover Leicester (I may do that instead / as well)

      Should I WC this lot?

      Pope

      Son - Bruno - Lingard - Gundo
      Kane - Bamford - DCL

      Martinez - Raph - Dallas - Konsa

        Yes

      3. MightyGar
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I wouldn't. City players are a risk and Leeds players could easily blank against City

                  I would WC that team

                Towers
                Horses
                Martin is a bit if a punt and certainly a differential

                  Yeah; does not seem the same genre but has some surprising similarities. All are driven by comedy through wit and character.

              1 month, 11 days ago

              Would you wildcard this?

              Pope
              Dias, Digne, Coufal
              Son, Bruno, Raphinha*, Gundo, Lingard
              Kane, Watkins*

              Martinez, Bamford*, Dunk*, Dallas*

              Other option i'm considering is Raphinha, Bamford > Jota, Nacho (-4)

              1. Balls of Steel
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Could probably hold that WC this week

                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  More and more leaning to holding it

                Who knows how the game would’ve gone without the red card also

                1. Twisted Saltergater
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  Yep. There are gameweeks where on paper at least, it looks a no brainer to transfer in a player or even take a hit, and so often (it seems) keeping a player with a difficult fixture turns out better. Imagine selling Perreira this week, for instance?

                  I think that’s why taking a lot of hints inevitably fails because nothing is certain in football. Players, even manager, must subconsciously approach easier games with a different mindset.

                Do you think Tuchel rotates too much?

                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  I think he saw it as a safe rotation bringing in the quality of Tiago Silva. It just backfired.

            6. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 11 days ago

              Kane, Son, Salah, Bruno...

              Is it too much of an overkill on WC with the premium attackers?

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  Add Trent to that if you can.

                I think that's a good base.

                I fancy KDB over Bruno, but the risk of rotation is a worry

                No definitely not overkill

              I might:
              Bale & Bamford ➡ Salah (C) & Ihenacho (-4)

              Thoughts..?

              Is GW31 still the smart week to WC this lot?

              Pope
              Coufal - Stones - Dunk
              Son - Bruno - Lingard - Gundo
              Kane - Bamford - DCL

              Martinez - Raph - Dallas - Konsa

              1 month, 11 days ago

              Why is City defence being offloaded in WC drafts? 5/7 upcoming fixtures are favourable and they’ve kept a CS in tough games like Leicester this week.

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Stones Cancelo rotation risks so that leaves Dias who is a pretty good option but I guess people want to either go cheaper, Azpi (+1 game) or up to TAA.

                1. Ibralicious
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  Hmm that’s fair

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                I won’t be selling Dias unless he gets injured

                1. Ibralicious
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  Might have to do this too

                1 month, 11 days ago

                Rotation, if I wasn't playing wc I would have waited another week before offloading stones and cancelo as they due to start. But 6+ points every 2 games is only around 3pts average per game. I swapped the pair for dias and shaw.

              4. Balls of Steel
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Only City defender worth considering is Dias, too much rotation risk with other defenders! Ederson also a certain starter if looking for a way into City defence..

            10. Ibralicious
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              Mendy / Forster
              Trent / Shaw / Coady / Rudiger / Phillips
              Salah / Bruno / Son / Jota / Gundogan
              Kane / Antonio / Iheanacho

              0.2 ITB

              First WC draft. Not sure about the defence at all, any improvements?

                  I'm in the same predicament, 4m for pool defender is very hard to turn down. But salah taa jota very nice and hard to drop one.

                I have similar draft. Only Creswell and Lingard in place of Gundo & Trent.

              Big headache this week with almost exact cash for Gundo ➡️ Jota.

              Would you go for it?

              1. Balls of Steel
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Wait for CL minutes, another Jota price rise could be close though

                1. Karan14
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  I can afford a 0.1 rise or fall for Jota/Gundo but not both. Fortunately both are playing on Tuesday night but I know both will start more worried about injuries.

                  1. Balls of Steel
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 11 days ago

                    In that case wait until after CL games before deciding...agree both start Tuesday.

                1 month, 11 days ago

                Personally yes

                I've made any number of midweek transfers and can't recall being burnt once. If you hold off then being landed with Gundo isn't the worst result and there'll be another route to Jota week after with 2 FTs

                1. Karan14
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  I'm going to wait till Tuesday night at least and take it from there. If Jota scores again midweek its going to be hard to resist and I'll probably pull the trigger.

                    Sensible of course

                    Jota I suspect will have risen again by then. Gundo likely to hold I imagine. Suspect most of the people selling him are the pros with WC in hand. Casuals like me got rid a couple of weeks ago.

                I would give Gundagon the Leeds game and them switch over to Jota

                  If Jota is starting I think I prefer him against Villa even if it's Leeds for Gundo.

              Martinez, Targett & Konsa vs Fulham
              Lowton vs Forster

                🙂

                How many did you lose yesterday? Actually have bet against Villa defence this week but it looks a reasonable call in principle.

                Iheanacho

                Not that convinced by Leicester generally and it's a fairly short fixture swing from 32 to 35. More options in midfield and Iheanacho is easy to bench when fixtures turn bad.

                  I prefer Maddison, but I feel there is more competition for places in midfield. What would your mid / forward combos be?

                  Is Nathaniel Phillips nailed for Liverpool ?

                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        But all Liverpool need is Matip, Gomez or VvD to be fit and he’s out. Phillips won’t play more than 3 games imo.

                          All three of them are out for the season

                      I'd say so. Kazak would probably drop out first.

                      1. Vazza
                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          The question is would you spend 3m extra and bring in Robbo?

                          Doubt it. Philips drops out first definitely. But can’t see it. Unless champions league rotation later. Or he drops a clanger or two

                          1. Vazza
                              1 month, 11 days ago

                                Just adding Phillips was the fan's player of the month in March. We don't know who drops out first is the simple answer, hence go for the cheaper. Matip is ruled out for the season btw and don't think Gomez or VVD are even close.

                            Surely a mini wildcard should do the job i.e. three moves for a 4 point hit.

                            Why don’t you create a dummy WC team to bring in the players you want and compare with your current squad?

                              Thanks. I was eyeing up Auba -> Salah and Bamford -> iheanacho. Maybe another worth a hit too

                            That's a pickle...I would probably cut my losses and WC!

                            Auba. Raphinha. Bamford to Salah. Jota. Iheanacho should do the trick for now

                              £0.8m short of that sadly. Thinking I'll just do Auba and Bamford to Salah and Iheanacho

                          Easily one of the very best and one of my favourite weekly articles but I really wish somebody would actually bother to proof read it before publishing.

                          “Leeds duo Raphinha (£5.7m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.7m) were the key differentials, backed by just 3.6% and 3.2% of top 10k managers for the Gameweek 30 armband.

                          Such managers were arguably unfortunate to see the two players register scores of five and two points respectively”

                          “ 57.9% of this week’s top-10k Wildcarders chose Antonio Rüdiger (£4.7m) with 46.4% picking Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m).

                          While only the former was involved at Stamford Bridge, both players scored zero points.”

                          For the record, Raphina got six points and it was the latter not the former that was involved at Stamford Bridge.

                                Bit heavy in defence. I would downgrade perhaps Alonso. Antonio to Dcl ?

                                  Yeah you are probably right. But alonso was so far forward yesterday!
                                  Maybe just keep dallas and have money in the bank to go son to Salah?

                                  I don't really mind that. Raphinha would be bench the next few. Nacho is a bit of a rotation risk. Happy to have a decent bench.

                                  Thanks! All of a sudden it’s all about going from 0/1 Pool player to 2/3. hopefully Pool won’t fall back to the recent level

                                So Jimi could make a return fairly soon?

                                  Put himself into his own fantasy team apparently this week.

                                    Just read this, I wonder how close he is to actually playing though?

                                      Depends on how he plays FPL I guess.

                                      He may just be trying to beat the price rises before he gets a game next time 🙂

                                Would just love him to get a game to be honest. GW38 nostalgia pick probably enough for this vocal fan of his

                              WC this week and I'm looking into captaincy options for GW31. A city player looks to be the way to go vs Leeds but not clear who is going to get the game with such a short turn around after Dortmund and future games to come.

                              Is a punt on Aguero vs Leeds madness? Would then switch back to Kane for his double in GW32.

                                Not madness, but are his chances to start more than 50/50?

                                Looked at Aguero or Jesus last night, but decided I couldn’t risk the rotation (you’d think Jesus gets the CL games and off PL game to keep him sharp).

                                Is Pep the sentimental type to give Aguero the remaining PL games? Not sure.

                                Have brought in Iheanacho as Vardy looks on his last legs to me, unfortunately. Leicester also have a great fixture run.

                                  Was considering iheanacho however concerned over both continuation of form & mins with Maddison returning

                                    Its going to be tricky but I think it will be well worth it if you can get a city starter captained this week. If not Aguero then possibly the likes of Sterling / Mahrez / Jesus.

                                    The game has goals written all over it with the best offensive team in the league vs a side like Leeds that plays open no matter the opponent and have shipped 48 goals in 30 games.

                                  He just didn't look on it yesterday - not the same beast sadly.

                                  Think that game could be a cracker and run on similar lines to the early season one.

                                GW31 Dias - Philips
                                GW32 Raph and Auba - Bruno and Jota -4

                                Still have Gundo and Stones but need the money?

                                    Was planning on switching salah for Jota and strengthening all over with TAA in defence

                                    Or

                                    Instead I could do raph to jota & bams to adams (2 good games with Pre intl break form)

                                      Finally see some love for Adams who could have 2 doubles in GW33 and GW35

                                          I need to look into these doubles as didn’t realise DGW33!

                                            When would we find out about DGW33? I was planning for spurs double but perhaps should look at Southampton as don’t hsve any of their players like
