How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Double Gameweek 32

Double Gameweek 32 has produced the most-backed Triple Captain of the campaign so far.

Harry Kane (£11.7m) comes into the round with the backing of 359,246 enhanced armbands, the highest accrued by any player in one Gameweek this season.

The Spurs player has actually broken his own record in that respect, having gone into Double Gameweek 26 shouldering 239,588 Triple Captaincies.

Those numbers made for a very one-sided captain’s affair among the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers.

95.5% of them captained Kane for Double Gameweek 32 while just 3.2% went for Son Heung-min (£9.5m).

Spurs’ Friday-night trip to Everton largely satisfied the masses in the end as Kane scored twice while Son registered his fourth blank from a possible six.

That said, Kane came off with an ankle problem in stoppage time at Goodison Park, putting his chances of starting against Southampton on Wednesday at risk.

Such was the Spurs dominance of the captaincy, Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) finished third among the top 10k this week but managed a share of just 0.4% of their armbands.

Unsurprisingly, the Triple Captain was the most popular chip in Double Gameweek 32.

22.6% of the top 10k went for the enhanced armband this weekend, taking the overall usage of it at this level to 95.6%.

Meanwhile, the Wildcard continues to receive some attention, albeit small.

3.1% of the top 10k pulled the trigger on a new squad for Double Gameweek 32, meaning 8.7% of them plan to use the Wildcard in the final six Gameweeks of the season.

After this week’s chip usage, 67.7% of the top 10k have exhausted their supply for the 2020/21 campaign.

27.3% have used three of their chips while 4.6% have two left to use between now and Gameweek 38.

As a result of Kane’s heavy backing in the top 10k, his effective ownership at that level was the highest witnessed this season: 216.8%.

He was also the only asset with over 100% effective ownership with Son sitting in second place at 88.0%.

Of particular note is the fact that Jesse Lingard (£6.5m) and Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.0m) are both in the top five now.

Gameweek 31

Double Gameweek 32

Son was a popular transfer target among the top 10k ahead of Double Gameweek 32.

As you can see from the two squads, his ownership at this level rose by 29.4 percentage points between the two most recent deadlines.

His two Double Gameweek 32 fixtures have helped him rise from the fifth-most-popular midfielder in the top 10k to the most fashionable.

Jesse Lingard (£6.5m) continues his journey to the top-end of top-10k action, now owned by 83.2% of such managers after his latest double-digit haul. 59.8% of them had him for the 14 points he scored against Leicester.

Iheanacho is another significant riser, his Gameweek 31 brace at West Ham helping him jump from 37.7% ownership at this level to 78.3%.

Meanwhile, Patrick Bamford (£6.5m) continues to cling onto a place inside the top-three most popular top 10k forwards.

His ownership in the upper echelons has dropped by 13.3 percentage points but 33.6% of the top 10k still retain faith in the Leeds man.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) has re-emerged in the template after his back-to-back double-figure hauls.

Already, he is the fourth-most-fashionable top-10k defender with ownership of 37.2% for Double Gameweek 32.

Meanwhile, an examination of the Wildcarders in the top 10k gives an indication of some of the potential differentials on offer at this level for the season’s closing stages.

Rob Holding (£4.2m) and Conor Coady (£4.9m) are both significant options for such managers despite not featuring in the top-five defenders in the wider pool of the top 10k.

Meanwhile, 28.6% of these Wildcarders went for Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m), who has four goals in his last four Premier League matches.

    Kane walked off, he didn't limp off

      I was watching it and that was a limp.

  6. UNDERWORLD7
    • 9 Years

    Why not just give Kane and Siggy 3 bps each?

    Absolutely rigged as usual

      Rigged because your player lost a bap?

    Not sure whether I'm happy or not as a normal captainer and not Trips

      Shouldn't matter too much. Small red as a capper.

    We all made the sensible choice, well done TCs

    do you think son will start v southampton?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah after sitting out tonight, he’ll be fresh.

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      With Kane likely out I think Son starts 100%

    3. BrockLanders

      Yes

  11. Roy Hudd
    • 4 Years

    Siggy gained an extra point in the last minute of injury time there to take him to 3 baps. Gotta laugh at the fix.

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Pick one:

      1. Kane ran off
      2. Kane limped off
      3. Kane swam off
      4. Kane flew off
      5. Kane crawled off

      1. Al Moon Yeah

        6. Kane rolled off badum tssh

      2. Roy Hudd
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I didn't know you gained a point if an opposition player goes off injured. It was Siggy (58) and Kane (58). Last minute....siggy (59) Kane (58). Must be a new BPS ruling. Cheers for the heads up!

  12. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    If Kane is to miss the Euro’s it would be fitting that his stand in was on the pitch as well tonight.

    Arise, Josh King.

    1. Well you know, Triffic

        He looked fine to you? Final a few days later, CL hopes head, he can’t be risked, if he’s even that close, doubt it.

  13. Sloane426

    All we can do at this point is hope Kane is out injured v Southampton.

    1. jammie26
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Why would we hope that?

      • Luton_Fan

        Excuse me?

      • Mweene
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Very unlikely Mourinho will risk him even if he's capable of playing.

        Think his job might be on the line in that cup final.

        1. jammie26
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Surely getting sacked and another 10mil payoff would be ideal.

        2. Tango74
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Why would you want a player to be injured?

          • Keeptrying
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I pity you that you have to hope for something like that.

        3. jammie26
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Didn't see the game. Kane went off injured?

            1. Etonmessi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 5 days ago

              rolled his ankle. limped off but could be ok.

            2. Utopsis
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 5 days ago

              He's got 5 days to recover, but it's didn't look too good. Rolled his problematic ankle, and they've got a big game 3 days after SOU

              I’ve been told he might have to have the ankle amputated.

              Lol. Oh well as a triple captainer I'm happy with 2 goals and 2 baps even if he does have to have his leg amputated.

              Kane injured from Richarlison hurling himself to the ground for the umpteenth time this season. Referees need to start nailing this guy.

                Richarlison was probably imitating Kane if that’s the case. Harry usually gets the decision, might as well copy.

              Can I check what the Template Transfer is in terms of who to get in for Kane for the rest of the season. I’m thinking Brewster or Gayle. Right? Can someone post it quick so I can get my transfer done tonight before Kane’s price drop.

                Don't worry, Mourinho will do anything to ensure he doesn't field a Kane-less XI. Loses job otherwise! 😆

                Mourinho on Kane's ankle injury: "I think it's too early to say something. For him to leave the pitch at 2-2 with a couple of minutes to go is obviously because he felt something. Let me be optimistic and believe he has time to recover. Let's see."
