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.

        Morning dzz, best moves here with 2FTs and 0m. Cant see too many routes

        Mendy --- Forster
        Rudiger Shaw Veltman TAA Holding
        Salah Bruno Lingard Jota -- Son
        Nacho -- Kane Davis

        A: Son >> Maddison/Greenwood and bench holding
        B: Something else

        1. pingissimus

          2 months, 8 days ago

          A looks fine as at now

          Things may turn around if we get a DGW announcement before the deadline and who knows about Kane.

          1. unitednations

            yeah def worth waiting till end of week to make any moves.

      3. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I'm clearly going to be fighting a lone battle on this one but here goes:

        Palace have a notably worse away record than Newcastle
        Liverpool have an extremely poor home record and Leicester a very good one
        The form player for goals is Iheanacho

        Waiting on events this week but just don't see Salah as an inevitable captain at all. I'm not even sure he's the logical captain choice.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I was thinking of going Nacho or even Maddison.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            I'm going to see fascinated how Maddison shapes up.

            33 34 35 is very nearly ideal.

            Would you be losing Greenwood for him next time? You did get Greenwood no?

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Got Greenwood in for Gundogan - would sell Son for Maddison probably

        2. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Bruno Fernandes away at Leeds 😉

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            You make me fee sane 🙂

            Vaguely cross with myself for not taking the hit to punt on Greenwood this time to allow myself both him and Maddison next time. Got put off by fixtures as much as anything.

            Can't make up my mind about Leeds defence. Their stats and record - especially at home - put them comfortably mid table or better on form - level with Liverpool sort of thing.

        3. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Salah over Nacho for me. But i might just be tempted by Cavani.

      4. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Getting Christensen on WC has been a disaster, back to back games injured ugh

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Get rid of Mr. 59 asap

        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Can’t deny I’m disappointed Kane (TC) probably won’t play the second game, but 36 points for a TC is considerably better than anything I’ve achieved with this chip for about five years (previous fails include Sane, Aguero, Mahrez last year...), so I’ll take it. Get well soon Harry!

        1. Rondon9
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          And better than all other popular TC options so far this season!

          Well played!

        2. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I played my WC this week so couldn't use it. But if i could i would have as well. Obvious pick. 12 points is decent. Anything above 15 is great.

        3. el polako
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          12 points is a great result.

          My last 3 TC's : Sane, Mane and Donkey Calvert Lewin

      6. Don F
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Thoughts on this WC:

          Smeichel, steele

          TAA, rusiger, dallas, semedo, phillips

          Salah, Fernández, maddison, lingard, pereira

          Iheanacho, cavani, lacazzette

          0 in the bank. With the abovd

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Benching headache, otherwise looks good. You have BB?

            • 6 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            I dont like 3 players from Leicester but go for it if you think they will do well.

            1. Don F
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Any other goalkeeper at 5.4 or less? Patricio?

          3. fc_skrald
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            I think the obvious transfer here is Cancelo to TAA. But I have to admit that I'm starting to be a little annoyed with Digne in my team. Should I depart Digne instead and play Lowton?

            Martínez
            Cancelo, Digne, Shaw
            Salah, Fernandes, Lingard, Mount, Pereira
            Iheanacho, Bamford

            McGill, Kane, Lowton, Struijk
            1 free transfer, 1.9 million in the bank

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Lowton is very playable next week.

              But looking at Everton fixtures between 34 and 37 they are essentially top of the ticker (I exclude Spurs 🙂 )and that's not including the DGW to come. If you've held this far it feels the wrong time to lose Digne.

              1. Weeb Kakashi
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Everton fixtures with a double and no blank are too good to ignore. If Kane is out then DCL (if fit) is a great pick along with one of their defenders.

                1. Salan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Everton is simply not good. Irrelevant to fixtures.

                  1. Weeb Kakashi
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    They are inconsistent for sure. But the double is tempting isnt it? Two home fixtures after the double too.

              2. fc_skrald
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Thanks, I think you are right. I will keep Digne and hope for the best 🙂

          4. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Was watching Brighton's highlights of last 3-4 games. (Desperate times 😉 )

            I like the way Moder was playing and position he was taking, will hopefully be a defender next year.

            1. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              He did have couple of good chances in the last game. Much better player than Burn.

            haven't been following lately.

            What are you guys doing to Son and/or Kane the next gw? I suppose Son to another Chelsea mid is the go-to move ?

            1. RamboRN
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              For me probably mount or maddison

            2. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Son stays. If Kane looks like missing 34(SHU) then he makes way for DCL/Vardy

              Fantastic work

              You haven't put a foot wrong recently really. Lloris could turn nicely if he gets you a couple of cs v Southampton and SHU.

              Wait for further news. If he is back for 34 then it might be better to stick.

              Out of those fancy Vardy. Consider DCL too.

              Dropped 9k with the same haul, but I did take a -4..

              Downward slump has pushed me out of 100k!

              • 5 Years

              All it needs is a Son goal vs Saints to match Kane.

              Could be very nice indeed

              Double Brighton defence looks especially cool - not many save points for Sanchez perhaps 🙂

              One or two variables of course in there but that defence could be golden in the run in.

                No save points for Sanchez but 6pts pretty much guaranteed 😉

                Would you WC this team?

                Martinez Button
                Aina Cancelo Coufal Veltman Dallas
                Fernandes Salah Jota Son Lingard
                Kane Nancho Bamford

              I WC'd in 30 and will BB when I hear news on GW35 and 36...

              If DGW35 happens and is a big one then WC34 and BB35 looks obvious.

            Interring rank drop after a Captain brace haha. Is that the highest EO ever?

              It's up there in record territory for sure...

              Imagine NOT captaining Kane...

              (That so could have been me) 😆

                Salah or Bruno could easy outscore 12

                  You spelled Jota wrong mate...

              Its grim yea, id not be so worried had Harry actually done a little bit better in 26, and it would have evened out, but those who waited got their points!

              Wonder if he will be risked in the next pl game.

              Shipping Stones for next GW...have up to 5.2 to replace. Would you target:

              Arsenal (most likely Gabriel)
              Villa (most likely Cash - double coming at some point)
              Wolves (most likely Semedo)

              Chasing so want a bit of a differential, hence not Targett, Coady etc

                • 3 Years

                Semedo

                Semedo or Cash

              Those with FH left, when you planning to use it?

                • 3 Years

                36 or 37

                maybe in some DGW or BGW or final week

              I have a feeling I have to change my style playing this game. Had a bad experience some years ago in a gameweek involving some hits and now I haven't taken a hit for more than two seasons 🙂

              1. Athletico Underachieving
                  2 months, 7 days ago

                  Tbh I was taking them way too often earlier this season and it hit my rank badly as they repeatedly failed. Something to be said for only hitting if absolutely necessary!

                    On the other hand....
                    I took a hit last week for Nacho and TAA.

                        Nicely done. Last one I did was Barnes for the DGW where got injured. No more for me this year!

                  Can’t believe I’m actually considering Siggy in.

                      That’s true. Although it’s less pain not having them when they disapoint.

                    Yeah, I've just woken up from that dream too.

                    Looks like my Gundo replacement will have to wait a little longer...

                    Feels like it’s time for him to let us down today, his streak has been fantastic

                      Yeah and lets face it, he's not much of a differential anymore anyway.
