Pro Pundit Teams

The FPL squad I’d pick if I was playing my Wildcard in Gameweek 31

Many Wildcards are being activated as fixture swings abound in Gameweek 31. Scoutcast regular Seb, who finished 389th in the world last season, talks us through who he’d pick if he was deploying the chip this week.


For many, Gameweek 31 has been identified as the week to play their second Wildcard. The teams we built to navigate Gameweek 29 generally had one final ‘good’ fixture left in Gameweek 30, after which there is now an edge to be found in switching your squad up and targeting the season run-in.

The final nine Gameweeks of the season can very roughly be split into two batches based on favourable fixtures: Gameweek 30 to Gameweek 34 and Gamweek 35 to Gameweek 38. There are also the remaining Double Gameweeks to keep in mind, principally Tottenham Hotspur’s in Gameweek 32.

Whilst I do not personally have my second Wildcard – it was used in Gameweek 24 and has since halved my rank – identifying the ideal 15-man squad will be invaluable to my own planning as I attempt to compete with those still holding the chip and improve my standing once again.

Note that this piece was written using statistics up to and including Gameweek 29 and does not include data from Easter weekend.

The Team

I have used my current team as the starting point for this, which means we have £104.8m worth of players and £0.9m in the bank to play with. Some of these players will have been purchased prior to Gameweek 31 at below their current price. This should give us a fair view of what is ‘achievable’ for most managers at this time.

The building blocks of this team are:

  • Hold – Players that will stay with the team for the remainder of the season
  • Twist – Players that are included based on fixtures and will be swapped out for more favourable options as appropriate
  • Efficiency – Minimising planned transfers whilst ensuring routes to players of various value and opportunity are left open

    Morning. What changes would you make to this wildcard?

    I'm happy to give Bruno a miss. So if I downgrade vardy to antonio or dcl, can't immediately see what to do with the spare cash

    No other chips. Thanks

      Maybe one less Leicester.

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Nice selection. I guess risk is security of starts for ESR and Nacho longer term - so Vardy to Antonio might give you funds for ESR to Maddi (maybe not now but in future)

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers....yes had considered vardy to antonio or dcl and upgrading esr to madison

        That creates benching headache tho....maybe not such a bad thing though considering season nearly over.

        Other player I have my eye on in greenwood instead of mount.....but not sure greenwood ge time. Thanks

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Greenwood struggling for confidence a little bit this season. Given Chelsea have better fixtures and Mount should be nailed I think that's the right call (hence why he's in mine below).

          Agree with benching headache. Guess question is whether Nacho retains his place with Maddi back

          1. Flynny
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Agree - but with martial out greenwood may get a decent run now.....

    3. The VAR Team

      Looks good. What are your reasons for going without Bruno?

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        My rank is 300k. So I'm willing to risk not getting a 50 per cent owned player ad its not going to help me move up much

        Nothing to lose. And his price messes up my balance....

        1. The VAR Team
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Fair enough. I’ll bring him in now after a nervous few GWs without. Currently 190k aiming for 50k

          1. Flynny
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I'm at 260k. Not sure what is realistic

  2. Biggsy

    Bottomed - thoughts welcome please on this WC draft

    Mendy, Forster
    Shaw, Rudgier, Dias, Phillips, Swiss
    Mount, Bruno, Son, Jota, Gundo
    Kane, Nacho, Antonio

    Money to do Son & Gundo to Maddison & Salah in 33

      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I like it. Nice balance.

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Saiss btw, not Swiss
      (In case someone thought Senderos had made a comeback)

    3. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Nice draft! Only thing is defence looks a bit rotation prone

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Saiss, Dias, Shaw should be nailed. Rudgier should be (assuming the Kepa bust up is truly "dealt with"). Phillips is a punt but at 4m less worried

        1. The VAR Team
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Think Dias will get rested occasionally for CL as the title is secured. But the fact you have Saiss and not Swiss makes it look better lol

          1. Biggsy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            True. I just think going without representation from the best defence in the league is a bit silly. Appreciate rotation risk but that's why I've aimed for certainty of starts amongst the others - or perhaps I haven't based on other comments

    4. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Nice but keep an eye on the Rudiger situation.

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah, did have Azpi in there but the moves in 33 wouldn't work. Will keep an eye

    5. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Very nice but I'd go for a slightly more nailed defence and prefer Lingard to Mount? More nailed, scores more.. would it allow DCL up top over Antonio too?

  3. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    A) Salah & gundo
    B) Jota & KDB

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      A probably safe

      But I'd go B

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Gundogan Jota?

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      B (but prefer Liv duo over City atm)

  4. Lexi2014
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Would you wildcard this team?

    Wildcard/TC/BB still left to play

    Martinez
    Dias / Cresswell / Konsa
    Son / Raphina / Fernandes / Mount
    Bamford / Antonio / Kane

    McCarthy / Dunk / Lowton / Soucek

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      It's still a really nice squad

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      As with most on here, heavy on Leeds who have a tougher run and light on teams like Pool, Leicester who have a good run - suggests a WC could be good.

  5. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated on this WC team, I'm very much thinking long term and keeping bench boost in mind!?

    Mendy Areola
    TAA Dias Cresswell Shaw Dallas
    Bruno Gundogan Jota Lingard Raphina
    Kane Vardy DCL

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Having Dallas and Raph maybe not ideal - you'll be playing them against United whilst you Bench Kane, Dias and Gundo in 33 (although 2FT before then).

      What about Son for Spurs DGW? Vardy to Nacho to fund and then upgrade Raph?

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks mate, when is the Spurs dbgw?

        Had Dallas Raph Bamford since their original price and they've been amazing value and they have great fixtures after 33 so don't want rid of them all. Thinking of BB in 38 with them.

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          32 - Everton and Soton so a Kane/Son double up will be popular.

          Appreciate money tied up in Leeds and that you'd want back - just think it's risky for the 4-5 weeks of poor fixtures in next 8

  6. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Guys my first try wc, do need suggestions.

    Mendy Forster
    Taa Rudiger coady Dawson lascelles
    Salah son bruno jota soucek
    Kane Antonio iheanacho

    Rate this out of 10 if you can. TIA.

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      9/10
      I would get Shaw instead of Dawson/Lascelles and downgrade Soucek to afford it but team looks good.

  7. rowdog24
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Need one of DCL, Digne or Holgate not to play for Pereira points off the bench.

    Percentage chances? 🙁

  8. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    When would you WC if you had one? Wanna prepare for the BB

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Probably WC GW34 and BB DGW35

  9. Mini League Fatigue
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Played WC, BB planned for 32 with no transfers between now and then (view to transfer out Spurs / city with my 2FT in advance of blank 33). Appreciate views ;

    Ederson, Johnstone
    TAA, Coady, Reguilon, Shaw, Cancelo
    Bruno, Son, Gundo, Neto, Jota
    Kane, Iheanacho, Wood

    Plan to bench Shaw, Reg + 1 I can’t decide yet for 31!

    Only 0.2 left ITb

  10. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Why are people going Antonio over Lingard and ditching the highest scoring defender with OK fixtures?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Easy to fit Antonio due to lack of options upfront, that isnt the case with midfield.

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        This for me. Poor choice up top until Bamford when Leeds fixtures turn (don't like DCL which Super suggested against my post)

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Antonio best WHU attacker, Lingard overperforming, a lot of better and cheaper defs than Cresswell with even better fixtures.

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        This aged very well, Lingard essential!

  11. Stoichkov#8
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    What do you think guys:

    a) Cancelo, Dunk, Auba, Raph > Rudiger, Phillips, Jota, Salah -8 (exact $)
    b) play WC (I like rest of my team really)
    c) forget Salah

  12. HD7
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    How is this for a WC, mates?

    Schmeichel Forster
    TAA, Rudiger, Stones*, Coady, Holding
    Salah, Son, Jota, Gundo, Neto
    Kane, Vardy, Vydra

    1. HD7
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Notes:
      I still have Bruno in my team as I got him for 10.5 early on. However Im ready to sacrifice him in order to get Vardy upfront.

      Stones can and probably will be switched to Shaw

      Im betting that Liverpool wont rotate so much and will have stamina to play 2 games every week, which is risky...

      Anything else you would change?

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I think Bruno + Nacho are better than Gundo + Vardy.
      Shaw instead of Stones is obvious.
      Is Vydra to Antonio possible?

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Have Bruno + 5.2m for a striker. So not enough funds to balance it with Bruno, mate

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      why Vardy?

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Your question is probably why not Nacho? I dont rate him, with Maddy back especially. One two bad games and hes back to a rotation playsr for me.

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Nah, the question is why Vardy. Not compulsory to have one of them.

          1. HD7
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Rate him to get hauls in their nice fix-s. Maddy is back to provide creativity. No Europe.

            Im a United fan. Bruno seems tired and nervous since January. He still contributes but aint the same currently. United have also Europe. And not the best incoming fixtures for big hauls. I just hope they continue to scrape wins like now.

        2. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I dont get Vardy love. He was limping last game if you look closely. Dont think he is fit. I prefer Bruno.

  13. AD2110
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Would you guys wildcard this team? Or hold for GW33

    Mendy, (Forster)
    Cancelo, Shaw, Veltmann, (Dallas, Targett)
    KDB, Jota, Son, Bruno, Gundo
    Kane, Bamford, (Watkins)

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I would make 2-3 changes with 1-2 hits and keep WC.

  14. @ocprodigy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    What’s with the lack of KDB love?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      no GW 33
      rotation

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Lots of midfield options enticing people more I think. Salah, Bruno, Son, Kane filling up premium slots and Jota, Neto, Raphinha and co filling up the remaining midfield slots.

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      City need 3-4 wins out of eight to tie up Premier League. Focus will be on their possible quadruple so likely prem will become chance to rest key players (even more than usual)

    4. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Too expensive for someone I wouldnt captain

    5. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      For me he stays until gw34 and then he is out

  15. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Could do with a bit of advice please.
    pretty happy with my team so don't want to do major changes.

    Martinez areola
    dias stones awb cresswell lowton
    salah bruno gundo raphinha mount
    kane dcl watkins

    2ft 0 itb

    martinez to mendy and save?

    Lose mount ? ( Rotation)

    thank you and Gl

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Mendy great mid-long term
      Not sure Christensen is best Chel def pick
      Keep Mount

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks a lot 🙂

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Watkins would be an area of concern for me. Two poor fixtures coming up (assuming no repeat of the 7-2 earlier in season)

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        True
        Still had a dgw though.
        Think Iheanacho is nailed ?
        Thanks a lot

  16. Lemongrab
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Raphina to Jota the obvious move this week? Can just get him back in 34 for the run in

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Looks good

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I really like Raph but Im selling too and will get him back around GW34

      1. Lemongrab
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah I think he's brilliant but fancy Jota to outscore him over the next 3

  17. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    For next gw. Is Taa better option than Jota?

    For me it is either Raphinha -> Jota or Targett/Stones -> Taa

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Taa less rotation risk ?

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Probably but Jota has higher ceiling.

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Has he though ? We know what taa can do. Also save a transfer back to get raphinha. Imo 🙂

    2. Lemongrab
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Both great options I think. Trent will be a more differential move so probably depends where you are in leagues and OR

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      If I had to pick I would go Jota.
      Jota+Phillips looks not bad too

    4. cigan
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Prefer the TAA move if it's one or the other - but long term, I'll want both

  18. Original - Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Would you make any changes to this WC team?

    Schmeichel, Forster
    TAA, Rudiger, Shaw, Dawson, Coady
    Salah, Jota, Fernandes, Son, Neto
    Kane, Antonio. Nacho

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      No. great team.
      (maybe Mendy instead of Schmeichel but its just me)

    2. Lemongrab
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Very nice

    3. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Looks great

    4. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      It's good. Not a fan of the Neto and Schemichel picks but they're sensible.

      Obviously missing City but seems to be the consensus

      1. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Who would you replace with Neto and Schemichel?

    5. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Not tempted by Saiss over Coady? I'm thinking about it.

  19. Dirty Harry
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Best defender for 5.6m or less?

    I have Shaw in the blank spot as I've had him for quite some time but United fixtures aren't overly tasty.

    Currently have:

    Azpi Coady Dias ____ Phillips

    (I have Mendy in goals)

    1. cigan
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Shaw is a good pick. I like Fofana as well

  20. Finding Timo
      2 months, 12 days ago

      help to improve WC Backline please.. Mendy & Lloris, Philips, lowton, coady, Mitchell & Rüdiger

        Spending too much on GK and not enough on backline.

        Ditch Lowton & Mitchell for sure. But how much £ have you got to play with?

              Did you see Spurs defending? I can't see investment in their defence paying off for the DGW - sell Lori's for Forster for a start

                  Yeh that would help free up funds to maybe get dias

          Those who have fh left. When are you planning to use it? For me gw33 looks optimal as I'll have 3 spurs and 2 ManC.

          Also few tasty looking fixtures like Liverpool-Newcastle and Leicester-Palace

            Kane & Son will be my only blankers in 33 so at the mo I'm sketching in the possible DGW near the end to make sure the fans can see the games. I'm fine playing it in the final GW too because my H2H is going down to the wire and I play my key -only- rival in the final GW.

            I have dragged Dcl,Digne and Targett far too long and waiting that dgw to happen.

          Would you WC this now or wait a week or 2 (got 1 FT + FH & TC left as well)?

          Martinez (Johnstone)
          Dias Digne James (Coufal Dallas)
          Salah Bruno Gundogan Lingard Raphinha
          Kane DCL (Bamford)

          Can't see a decent move without taking a hit here. Go boring with Dallas > Saiss/Phillips or punty with Bamford > Wood/Nacho?

            I think you could wait a week with that lot, but be aware a lot of people are WC-in this week so price changes could affect your planning.

          Salah+Jota
          Or
          Kdb+Dcl?

          ?

          Looking at doing a BB in GW32 to offset TC Kane captainers?

          Good strategy?

          Chasing 30 points lead. If the gap is still something like that go maverick in from gw34 onwards or should I act now?

          Got 3-4 differentials atm

          1. Phil's Stamps
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            You could make that up in a week, play your own game, if it doesn't close think again in 34.

          I cant decide if it's worth bringing in TAA as I seem to be making too many sacrifices, please take a look at WC drafts

          Mendy / Forster

          TAA. Shaw Rudiger Coady Dawson

          Salah Bruno Son Jota (Burke)

          Kane Antonio Iheanacho

          Without TAA, then back line becomes
          Philips Shaw Rudiger Stones Creswell
          And
          Burke becomes Raphinha/Neto

            Looks really good atm

            Stick with TAA, he's got something to prove and the fixtures are great.

          “... There are also the remaining Double Gameweeks to keep in mind, principally Tottenham Hotspur’s in Gameweek 32 ....”. Seb, I think you missed the potential DGW35 and BGW36 when you wrote your FFS article. Could be pivotal. Crellin has some great Twitter threads on both of these weeks. Good luck.

            Yep fair. Although with DGW35 currently pretty unknowable, tough to plan for that without damaging the team in the meantime.

              Yup, optimal analytical choices seem to be, (i.) WC in 31 or (ii.) wait to WC later to better manage the potential DGW and BGW. Nasty choice.

          A) Maddison -for the differential (have Vardy).
          B) Jota -template, but tripled up with Salah & TAA.

          Leicester's fixtures are just too good to ignore but worried about Nacho's minutes. Maddi to Jota is an easy swap when the fixtures turn for the blues in GW36.
