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.

    Hope Kane isn't injured but it may make things more interesting with replacements if he is

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 5 days ago

      I guess Vardy will be the popular choice

      1. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah, surely most would make that switch. Not much form, but juicy fixtures and all to play for!

      2. Weeb Kakashi

        6 months, 5 days ago

        We already have Nacho-Madders. You want to do the triple?
        DCL if fit is also tempting. Good fixtures after the double as well.

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 5 days ago

          Depends for how long Kane is out, if its 3-4 GWs, then I would take a Vardy punt instead of spreading the cash.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 5 days ago

            Fair enough. CRY,sou,NEW.
            Couldn't ask for better fixtures and Leicester really need to win games now.

      Spurs looked terrible i must say, lucky that Kane was on fire

      i cant open the fantasy website, any1 has this problem?

        Working fine here

      Do Gundo to Maddy now or wait for this long GW to end?

      Obviously Kane news too

      1. mgilbert86
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 5 days ago

        I already did Gundo to Bowen but Maddy is a great shout

      2. Casual Player
          6 months, 5 days ago

          Just wait. Always the answer

      3. Casual Player
          6 months, 5 days ago

          Obviously I’d prefer Kane plays the next one, but he’s scored more points here than all the other popular TC options this season.

          I guess if you wasted your TC on one of those, you’ve got to tell yourself something to sleep at night.

          I’ll take the 12pts on 80% of the field.

          1. Atwood
            • 11 Years
            6 months, 5 days ago

            Yeah the TC is already a success. Anything from here is a bonus.

            Very few TC's scored 0.

            1. Casual Player
                6 months, 5 days ago

                12 points over the normal captain Kane.

                8 to 20 over the previous popular TC points

                Am I missing something?

                1. Casual Player
                    6 months, 5 days ago

                    Sorry it’s more like 12 to 30 over previous popular TC picks

                    Sure you got 12 more points this GW.
                    TCer's got their extra points when they used it, just not 12 in most cases.
                    You probably captained previous TC options and just about everyone captained Kane this GW.

                Didn't waste it ; used it, got rewarded by it. Hope you made up some ground tonight.

              Arise Sir Harry, the TOP points scorer in the FPL.

              The cream does indeed ALWAYS rises to the top.

              Onwards and upwards!...

              New PB - 1100. Highest FPL position I've had.

              I'm sure plenty of you did that well before spending 10 years on this site but I'll take it regardless.

              Harry Kane has been a absolute legend this season. Probably the most reliable captain all year, when we expected him to do well he delivered! Rest up well captain my captain!

                I’d love to see some old posts from this site in the days when Kane was a budget forward option.

                Be interesting to see the change in people’s opinions (including mine I’m sure) as it became clear how good he was.

                He has trolled me for years, never delivering when i captained him, but the last few weeks he has finally delivered. Looked world class tonight.

                Not for a few days at least, he's at 40% on fffix now.

              Anyone considering on maxing up on Liverpool players, Easy fixtures to the end and no other games to worry about, main focus is getting a UCL slot.

              Salah/TAA/Jota

              1. BurlingtonDriftersFC

                6 months, 5 days ago

                Definitely. Got TAA and Salah now, will probably get Jota but maybe Nat Phillips? Gonna wait and see.

              Spread out Gameweeks are so painful. Knowing you cant enjoy anything from saturady football as it will only result in a red arrow due to limited game

                    i get ya, but it all equates out all the same by the time the GW is over and done with anyway.

                    Kane TC is a success, and we don't know if he's out for next game.

                it was good, could have been better. no complains 36pts. is enough

                  36 points is not enough. It should have been 75 points had he not been injured.

                  Course it'd be hysterical if he did play against Southampton and got a red card in the 3rd minute. . . .

                Love all the naysayers all week long.. do they embrace their bad takes about Kane? No... they start running their mouths about how he’s hurt now and his brace doesn’t matter. Don’t feed the trolls. K TC worked like a charm already

                I didn’t TC Kane, I’ve chosen to keep it for a SGW player or possibly a DGW player later (don’t ask why) but if I did, I certainly wouldn’t say he’s been a TC Fail. 12 points is already better than some of the popular TC options earlier in the season (KDB, Salah). And this was supposed to be the harder of the two fixtures. I captained Kane so wanted him to do well of course, but as someone who didn’t TC him I feel I’ve dodged the full regret bullet should he miss out the next game...

                    Why sell him at that price with that potential? Just bench..

                Jota or TAA?
                Can't afford both atm - already have Salah, with Philips on bench.

                  Let the next game decide. Lots to happen before GW33.

                    6 months, 5 days ago

                    I'm contemplating which one is likely to be a better pick for the rest of the season. Not transferring immediately but soliciting opinions while not much else is going on.No point in asking at the deadline in my experience.

                      The next game may answer your question. You can use RMT and comparison tool for a guide regarding points. Really depends on the combo unless it's a complete change of formation. You could also upgrade Phillips especially if Kane becomes a sell.

                  If they keep a clean sheet this gw I would probably go TAA, there are a few other mids in that price range

                  Even if he’s fine I really doubt he’s risked against Sou before the cup finals.

                        Should do with that team, no city was the way to go on WC, wish I'd done the same as you last week.

                          Yeah - I only wanted nailed players for my BB this week. Not sure if I would have otherwise, may have got Dias.

                            I think with all of their cup comps he won't get much gametime anyway mow. Holding my bb for a hopeful double gw at some point

                    Rise in rank on day 2 of a 10-day long GW? Who cares?

                      I do when 3 of them would have been on my bench anyway

                  I see a lot of people complaining that EO has ruined the game, EO is a joke etc.

                  EO is just a number that tells us the situation.

                  The issue is the game itself....captain and triple captain being a feature. Without those, you would never want any player to fail.

                    Exactly, it was always there just someone decided to measure it and give it a name.

                      It's also people's decision whether to look at it or care about it or not. Personally I never have but I still knew Kane goals would get me nowhere this week.

                    It has ruined the game for those who make decision based on that or its having some impact on your thought process.

                    I feel the same about price predicting sites, it drives the market and decision in certain direction.

                    1. Mweene

                      6 months, 5 days ago

                      Why would you make a decision based on that though? You just pick the players who you think will get the most points each week.

                        Not everyone plays like that unfortunately

                        If you are chasing, you cant get ahead of leader without having differential players.

                        If you are leading, you can just continue to lead with same template players.

                          You're much more likely to lose ground than gain it though when it's an obvious choice like this week.

                          In weeks like this it's surely better to go with Kane and then find a couple of differential non-captains like Bowen or Cavani.

                        Not everyone plays like that. If you’re risk averse then you’re going to pick the safe captain.

                  Can we just talk about how much I miss ultimate fantasy premier league and if you don't know what it is or never played it, my god did you miss out!

                    I didnt get a chance to play it due to country restriction but it was a brilliant concept. Would much prefer that.

                  Went Saiss and Masuaku over Coady and Holding for the upside on WC and now hoping they are not transfers waiting to happen.

                  Best Kane replacement here if he’s ruled out? Budget 10.2m.

                  Salah bruno son gundo lingard
                  Kane nacho Vydra

                    6 months, 5 days ago

                    Can is 11.8m... how you only getting 10.2??

                    Id be looking at one of Laca/Cavani

                      Stones > Taa would be the other transfer

                  6 months, 5 days ago

                  Wilson still at 0.1% EO... a haul today would be nice for a change

                    Both this week and next week could work out very well for Wilson - neither defence is remotely solid and both teams will be very vulnerable to counters featuring ASM and Wilson

                  Think the EO factor is being blown a bit out of proportion imo and throwing a lot of focus on one single player. People could still get good green arrows if they have a good team but didn't TC Kane this week. Also, this EO factor was always here. Just that people are paying more attention to it now. Just go on and enjoy your game!

                  Mendy
                  Azpi | Shaw | Robertson | Phillips
                  Bruno | Jota | Lingard | Maddison
                  Vardy | Iheanacho

                  Lloris | Holding | Kane | Son

                  What is the best way to squeeze Salah and TAA to this team with 2FTs and 0ITB?

                    • 8 Years

                    Bruno to Salah, Azpi to Konsa

                      6 months, 5 days ago

                      You already have 3 Liverpool, cant get Salah and Trent without getting rid of them

                    Azpi Robbo Bruno to Rudiger TAA Mo should get you close anyway. The alternative is to lose Vardy
