Suspensions

Which FPL players are nearing a ban?

In this regular article, we look at the latest Fantasy Premier League (FPL) disciplinary situation.

We also round up which FPL assets are already suspended – or returning from a ban – ahead of Gameweek 28.

A reminder: punishments for yellow card accumulation are competition-specific, whereas suspensions for dismissals cover all competitive matches.


WHEN ARE THE CUT-OFF POINTS FOR SUSPENSIONS?

The table above is taken from the Football Association website and details the cut-off points for the various yellow card thresholds.

We have passed the cut-off point for five yellow cards, so now the target to avoid is 10 cautions.


THE RACE TO (AVOID) 10 BOOKINGS

There is one player at immediate risk of a two-match suspension.

Ruben Neves (£5.4m) is sitting on nine cautions, so faces an uphill task to avoid a two-match ban as he has five more matches to get through before he is in the clear.

Four players are on eight bookings, the most notable of whom from an FPL perspective is Ivan Toney (£7.8m).


CURRENTLY SUSPENDED OR RETURNING FROM A BAN

FPL suspensions: Jesus and Gordon one booking away from a ban 1

Joao Palhinha (£4.9m) became the first Premier League player to reach 10 yellow cards, swiftly followed by Joelinton (£5.9m).

Both players were slapped with two-match bans and will return in Gameweek 29.

In terms of red cards, Wout Faes (£4.2m) will be suspended for Gameweek 28 after being dismissed for two bookable offences against Chelsea.

Casemiro (£4.9m) was sent off for the second time this season against Southampton and will now face a four-match suspension, although one of these matches will be the FA Cup quarter-final tie against Fulham.

He’ll be back in Gameweek 31.

Cheick Doucoure (£5.0m) was suspended for the first part of Crystal Palace’s Gameweek 27 double-header but returned in midweek.


Keep your eyes peeled on our Suspension Tightrope widget over the coming weeks and months, as we’ll be updating that after every Gameweek to keep you informed on the latest disciplinary developments.

      Heads, shoulders...

    Would you WC this team? Had a shocker last week and feeling the pressure with all the dgw players

    Kepa, Pope
    Mee, Ake, Trippier (tarky, shaw)
    Saka, martinelli, oodegard, rashford (andreas)
    Kane, haaland, toney

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      1FT or 2?

      1. Fefguero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        1ft. Andreas to Brighton mid is my thoughts if I don’t wc

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Like that transfer, and bench an Arsenal mid this week.

          1. Fefguero

            • 2 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Thanks! Odegaard going to the bench I think

    Just putting this out there but with Ivan Toney I'm just wondering whether or not to bring him in at all this week. In the corresponding fixtures against GW27's opponents, he blanked (Eve 1-1) and (Sou 3-0, 1 pt and yellow card). Maybe consider another captain? Can't deny his current form though.

    1. TheTinman
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think Brentford will struggle in these two games. They're poor away from home, don't have much to play for (Europa maybe) but nothing compared to Everton and Southampton fighting for their lives.

      1. Milk, 1 Šuker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Facts

      2. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I see it as they won't sit back, and allow many opportunities for Toney

      3. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        There only 3 points behind us… unless you also think we don't have much to play for too?

        1. TheTinman
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Hahahahaha no.... we're streets ahead of them

  5. La Roja
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Bb this lot?

    Kepa Zinchenko Martinelli Bavies

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You know the drill - "BB29"

    2. Milk, 1 Šuker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      That's not a bad call

  6. Pep Roulette
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    BB this bench?

    Kepa Martinelli Zinchenko Schar

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You know the drill - "BB29"

      1. leop911
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Why is BB 29 bettern than BB 27?

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          GW29: Kepa doubles, Marti and Zinch (LEE), Schar doubles

          1. leop911
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Makes sense. 🙂 Cheers!

  7. Manimals
    • 5 Years

    Who scores more this week only:

    Martinelli or Salah minus 4 points?

    1. Vovhund
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not worth it, I think

      1. Manimals
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Cheers bud

  8. Vovhund
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Might not be the first one to ask, but what to do with Sanchez, when plan is to BB GW29?:

    A) Get Raya (already on Henry and don't really like the fixtures)
    B) Get Steele (is he nailed for GWs 27-29)?
    C) Sanchez and Maddison to Raya and Mitoma (-4) - leaving me with one extra fixture in GW27, but one less in GW28

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Who is your other goalkeeper?

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Save if you've got a decent second keeper and see what happens at Brighton.

      1. Vovhund
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        2. GK is Kepa, so I would miss a DGW-keeper

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Certainly Raya starts in all the DGW allowing you to BB29 with confidence.

        2. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Same problem below

    3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      If you can get Raya for free then i would do the transfer, Unfortunately im 0.1 so im rolling and starting sanchez with Kepa most likely coming off the bench

  9. Manimals
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Start Trippier, James or Zinchenko this week? Thanks!

    1. Milk, 1 Šuker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      All if poss!

      1. Manimals
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Ha no can do unless bench boost which I'm not going to do

        1. Milk, 1 Šuker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Then Tripps

          1. Manimals
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Cheers

    2. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd play Trippier (WOL) even on a FH

      1. Manimals
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Thanks mate

    3. Shark Team
      • 6 Years

      Trippier

      1. Manimals
        • 5 Years

        Cheers

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Tripps, Zinc then James

      1. Manimals
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Thanks!

  10. FPL Virgin

    Press conference times?

  11. Shark Team
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Captaincy between Toney and Mac Allister comes down to whether Brighton are able to score 2 goals more than Brentford this gw, what do you think?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Toney from those two

  12. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    I know it's a bit sacrilegious but... I'm really considering benching Kane this week over Martinelli.

    Spurs are absolutely awful atm. I think a Kane blank is more likely than Arsenal not getting something against Fulham. Forest are bad away from home but they've been mostly decent at home and maybe their form will carry over.

    Forget the money, and Kane was mostly picked for GW28 anyway, does this make sense?

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I was playing Kane and benching saka but might reconsider

    2. Shark Team
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      The only home PL game where Spurs scored at Home and Kane didn't returned was vs Sou GW1, I expect them to score vs Forest so I wouldn't even think of benching him. Martinelli with Trossard and Nketiah out he may start upfront but still I can't see a haul from him there

      1. Milk, 1 Šuker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Never say never

    3. Milk, 1 Šuker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think as a Forest fan, they have been abject away from home. There is almost a sense of inevitability when it comes to away matches. Getting most of our points at home. However, as you say, this Spurs team isn't great and I don't think they will hammer them. Clean sheet potential high though.

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Crazy! 🙂

      Who else can you bench?

    5. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Do it! Only reason to play him is Forest's away form. His recent xG is beyond awful

    6. WVA
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I get where you're coming from and I tend to agree, of course I expect Kane to get a return but I would be extremely surprised based on current form if its double digits whereas based on current form i can easily see Martinelli hauling, I'd say more to lose from benching Martinelli but Kane is Kane.

    7. Die Hard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Play Kane as Forest are terrible away. You are underestimating Fulham, Arsenal won’t find it easy

      1. WVA
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        True, Fulham are pretty good

    8. cruzex
      • 11 Years

      Crazy

  13. basilfawlty

  15. donbagino
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Ederson (Ward), 0 FT, 2,3 itb WC available (probably gw28)
    Gabriel, Tarkowski, Trippier (Patterson, Bueno)
    Saka, Martinelli, Rashford, Salah, Mitoma
    Watkins, Toney, Haaland

    1. Only 2 dgw, would you take a hit for Martinelli--->MacAllister or Patterson-->Estupinian?
    2. Who would you bench if no more transfers: Martinelli or Watkins

  16. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Best possible move? 1FT, 0itb.

    A. Sanchez+Madd >> Raya+MacAllister (-4)

    C. Sanchez >> Steele
    D. Save FT

    Kepa
    Estupinan, Trippier, Henry

    Haaland, Kane, Toney
    (Sanchez, Maddison, Zinc, Schar)

    1. donbagino
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      E. Maddison --> MacAllister as you already have a nice dgw package

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Thanks. And then bench who?

        1. donbagino
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          tough 1 but Odegaard for me.

    2. Kabayan
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Leaning towards A but benching headache or D

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Probably the two I’m torn between also. So annoyed I went sanchez. Not only was last week a disaster I also now have issues this week so can’t just switch off and forget about this cr@p haha

        1. Vovhund
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          We're in the same boat. I would be tempted to C.

          A far higher ceiling than B, though.

          D seems quit defensive, as it deprives you of a DGW-keeper

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      C. Don't beat yourself up about Sanchez. Don't think anyone saw that coming

    4. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      D start sanchez (just in case)

  17. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Is it worth rolling an FT this week if you can?

    I'll probably need to free hit or something next week, but may be able to creep a team out with a hit.

    1. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Show us. If you are free hitting for sure, might as well transfer now.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      No point rolling before FH. You'll lose the FT

  18. Kabayan
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    For this week:
    A. Kepa + MacAllister/March
    Or
    B. Raya + Odegaard

    1. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A for me.

  19. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Bench of Kepa Martinelli Gabriel and Schar.

    Gonna be a disaster

    1. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      For many it will be, just like last GW.

    2. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      All depends how your starting 11 do - high/low bench point are irrelevant to your score (unless you need autosubs)

    3. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      After two weeks of disasters. Can't triple up the disasters,right?

      1. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Watch me 😉

    4. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Benching Mitoma over March last GW made me want to put acid in my eyes.

  20. Prinzhorn
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    A) Play Kepa, bench Sanchez, roll FT.
    B) Sell Sanchez, take a guess on other GK, just 1 FT for GW 28

    Must be A here, right?

  21. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Morning guys, what would be my best moves here? I have 3.6m in the bank, 1FT and still have FH, BB and WC.

    Kepa
    Trent - White - Trippier
    Rashford - Saka - Martinelli - Mitoma
    Toney - Haaland - Kane

    Ward - Andreas - Akanji - Tarko

    1. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You just have 1 Brentford and 1 Brighton for DGW. Would get more unless you don't believe in them.

      1. Kodap
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I'm tempted to WC and try set myself up for the blank and doubles/bb but not sure.

  22. Millie7
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Wildcard and make the most of the upcoming fixtures?? I'm quite a bit behindin my mini league so surely best to pull the trigger sooner rather than later?

    Kepa
    White Shaw Trippier
    Saka Rashford Mitoma KDB
    Haaland Toney Darwin

    Ward Odegaard Tark Patterson

    1. mcginnntonic
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd hold if you can. Few nice differentials in there. Maybe sell White & KDB for brighton / brentford

  23. mcginnntonic
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Who is the best west ham attacker?

    Is Ings nailed, or just go safe with Bowen if going down that route?

  24. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Raya*

    Tripps Estu*# Mee*

    Rashford# March*# Mitoma*# Saka

    Kane Toney* Haaland#

    * - DGW
    # - BGW 28...with 2 FTs I could get a full XI out next week so probably don't need to FH

    Bench is, Kepa Martinelli Gabriel Schar

    Roll FT?

    1. mcginnntonic
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd use 1ft & play with 10. Rather utilse the other free to get optimum for the doubles

  25. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Which ONE would you play here? Trying to save BB for 29.

    A. Maddison (CHE)
    B. Ødegaard (ful)
    C. Schär (WOL)
    D. Zinc (ful)

    Kepa
    Estupinan, Trippier, Henry
    Rashford, Saka, Mitoma, xxx
    Haaland, Kane, Toney

    (Sanchez, Maddison, Ødegaard, Schär, Zinc)

    1. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Odegaard probably

      1. nolard
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        yes

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Definitely A/B. Øde if you buy into the idea of Fulham being substantially weaker without Palinha

  26. mcginnntonic
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    In 29, would you rather have:

    A) Martinelli, Kane & Gabriel
    or
    B) Bowen (or another doubling mid), Iheanacho & Castagne

    1. mcginnntonic
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      for a -4, I forgot to add

      wish there was an edit button

      1. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        A three minute to edit button option would be handy.

    2. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      In isolation in that week only - probably the doublers

      1. mcginnntonic
        • 4 Years

      Prefer Nacho over Kane, Gabriel over Castagne, Martinelli over Bowen but maybe a different mid

          Not sure who you have but mine will be:
          Saka Maddison Rashford Mitoma March

          I'm just very unimpressed with WHU at the moment. I know they've been better at home but they were just hopelessly outplayed by BHA, really poor

    I'm very tempted to WC and get myself setup for the next couple of weeks, or would I be better just doing something like White > Estu for free this week? Got 3.6m in the bank.

    Kepa
    Trent - White - Trippier
    Rashford - Saka - Martinelli - Mitoma
    Toney - Haaland - Kane

    Ward - Andreas - Akanji - Tarko

      Yes, not worth doing the WC

      WC next week maybe

        okay lovely, what move would you be looking at here with my FT/possibly a -4 to get a couple of doublers?

        1. HuttonDressedasLahm
          • 14 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Yes but hold off Brighton until fixture is confirmed
          Brentford defender? Raya?

            • 6 Years

            Yeah thinking White > Estup & Kepa > Raya for a -4 maybe.

    Think have 2 Brighton is enough as have to bench them in GW28 and want to keep Salah and Rashford

    1. WVA
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Yep two Brighton, two Brentford for me as don't want to bench any of my starters and it gives me 2FT for 28/29.

      RAYA
      Trippier Gabriel ESTUPIAN
      Salah Saka Rashford Odegaard MARCH
      Haaland TONEY
      Kepa Watkins Mings Tark

    Would you do March to Macallister if you had a FT?

    1. The Mentaculus

      No. I'm buying March instead of Mac. Still looks more threatening from open play to me

    2. The Polymath
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      No, look at all the blanks Mac had before the recent haul.

      Never chase past points
