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.

    BB?

    Leno
    Trippier-Estupinian-Henry
    Salah-Martinelli-Mitoma-Rashford
    Haaland-Kane-Toney

    Ward-Odegaard-White-Tarkowski

    1. Stimps

      Recon 29 will be a better BB for you as Ward has a double also

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Why not 29?

    3. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes, in gw29.

    Thinking f staring Zinc ahead of Trippier, do you think Zinc scores more points?

    Fulham could be a tough one for Arsenal.

    1. DandyDon
      • 5 Years

      no i think newcastle will bounch back this week and win to nil.

    2. Now I'm Panicking

      Trippier v Arsenal defender this week is a tough one - I think Trippier possibly just edges it due to attacking potential, but I've changes my mind at least 3 times already this week.

    3. Catastrophe
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm starting Trippier over Gabriel (and Botman ahead of Gabriel on the bench)

    4. Stimps

      Fulham more of a chance at scoring than Wolves.... Go Tripps

    5. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      That's one of those fifty fifty calls. Most will probably go Trippier, so am I. But i have this lingering feeling Newcastle now are in a bad period and Wolves have looked ok ish last games, at least goals scored. But i sometimes confuse my gut feeling with Liverpool sentiments, so could be wrong.

    Anyone notice Jesus is back training?

      Word is, he'll be making a second coming around Easter.

        Ta.

  5. Fit_to_drop
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Bench one of this front line:

    March Saka Fernandes Rashford Martinelli
    Haaland Toney Kane

    1. Catastrophe
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think it has to be Martinelli (although closer than it normally would be between him and Fernandes - let's see what ETH says...)

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        If it looks like he is down the middle, ill have to play him..Could be Bruno then and just hope he has one of his 'off' days

        1. Catastrophe
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          He could be on the bench!

    2. marcos11
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Martinelli

  6. La Roja
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Bench one please:

    A) Trippier
    B) Shaw
    C) Bavies

    1. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

    2. marcos11
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      C

    3. La Roja
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Someone will surely say A now

    4. THE SHEEP HUNTERS
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

  7. MattyW
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Those with TC left, what is the plan? Thanks

    1. La Roja
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m thinking GW34 tbh

      1. MattyW
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        And 34 is the only other double, right? So if all chips in tact .. better to BB on 29?

        1. La Roja
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I’m not sure 100% if that’s the only one tbh.

          But yes, gw29 looks BB

          1. MattyW
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Cheers - good luck to you

    How is this WC team

    Kepa Ward

    Mee White Trippier Chilwell Shaw

    Saka Salah Mitoma Jensen Maddison

    Toney Kane Watkins

    GW27 4 DGWers
    GW28 11 players
    GW29 12 DGWers (possible BB)

    Any ideas for improvements would be welcomed

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Nice team but how do you get haaland back ? Money itb?

    2. La Roja
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m not sure about Jensen tbh. I’d rather have Raya instead of Ward.

      Also I’d prefer Haaland to Kane (even though he has a blank next GW) spurs looking bad

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Jensen will give you less benching headaches. same for ward. Kane is a question mark for me too but you need him v Southampton gw28 I think

        1. La Roja
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Jensen has 2 DGW’s, are u saying he should be benched on these? There is already benching headache in this squad the way I see.

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            No I meant less benching headaches going forward after gw29

  9. Solly The Seagull
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Play one

    A) Watkins
    B) Martinelli
    C) Schär
    D) Zinchenko

    1. MattyW
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A or B prob B I would go

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

    3. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

  10. coriswrasse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Bench one: Saka, Odegaard, Haaland, Rashford or Kane?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Surely not any of those??? Odegaard if you must really.

      1. coriswrasse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        it's a tough decision for sure.

        Squad:
        Kepa, Raya (x2)
        Pinnock (x2), Trips, Schar, Zinc, Estupian (x2)
        Rashford, March (x2), Mitoma (x2), Saka, Ode
        Kane, Haaland, Toney (x2)

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Play BB 100%

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 14 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            A lot of us have very similar teams. BB in 29 still looks a bit better.

          2. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Kepa estu pinnock march on bench will be good

    2. marcos11
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Odegaard

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It's between Kane and Odegaard.

      Probably Odegaard just. Although I have Martinelli and I'm very close to putting him in over Kane. That's how little I rate Spurs.

      1. FPL Emu
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        You feeling that certain Saka is a better player to start than Kane? He does have Forest at home after all, where they have been pretty dreadful

    4. JonnyOnionRings
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ode

  11. marcos11
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Start one:

    a) Odegaard
    b) Maddison
    c) Zinchenko
