Suspensions

Which FPL players are nearing a two-match ban?

Our Suspension Tightrope article takes a look at the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players who are nearing a two-match ban for the accumulation of 10 yellow cards.

There are currently no players suspended in the English top flight, with Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) serving the second match of a two-game ban on Friday – but the Mexican and Wolverhampton Wanderers now blank in Gameweek 33 anyway.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF A PLAYER GETS 10 YELLOW CARDS?

Any Fantasy asset who collects 10 cautions in the Premier League before their team has completed 32 fixtures will serve a two-match ban in the same competition.

Punishments for yellow card accumulation are competition-specific, whereas suspensions for dismissals cover all competitive matches.

PLAYERS ON 8/9 YELLOW CARDS

Gameweek 32 was a big weekend on the suspension front as many FPL assets are now free of the threat of a two-match ban.

In fact, there are now only five players who are at risk of suspension.

Two of them are on Burnley’s books. Semi-popular bench fodder option Josh Brownhill (£4.3m) will need to get through the Clarets’ next two matches without a booking to avoid being slapped with a two-game ban, while James Tarkowski (£4.9m) only needs to dodge two cautions in as many matches to avoid the same fate.

Tyrone Mings (£5.0m), Scott McTominay (£5.4m) and Yves Bissouma (£4.4m) are also on the precipice, although McTominay is currently injured anyway.

The likes of Conor Gallagher (£6.1m) and Matthew Cash (£5.3m), plus everyone bar Tarkowski on eight yellow cards, can no longer be banned for two matches as a result of yellow card accumulation.

WHEN ARE THE CUT-OFF POINTS FOR SUSPENSIONS?

For Bissouma, Tarkowski, Brownhill and McTominay, the cut-off point is Gameweek 33.

Mings will be in the clear after Gameweek 34:

    Anyone considering giving Son the armband over DGW'ers?

    I’m captaining Salah this GW over the Chelsea DGWers.

    I heard Salah was very excited about playing an Everton team who could be in the bottom three come Sunday.

    Or is it safer to go with the Chelsea DGWers ?
