Suspensions

FPL suspensions: Toney one booking away from 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 long since 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 are three players at immediate risk of a two-match suspension, the most notable of whom from a Fantasy perspective is Ivan Toney (£7.8m).

He picked up his ninth booking of the season late on in Brentford’s win over Southampton, so is now one caution away from a two-match ban.

Toney has to get through the Bees’ next six matches without a yellow card in order to avoid that fate. If he’s booked this weekend against Leicester City, he’ll miss out on the entirety of Double Gameweek 29.

Ruben Neves (£5.4m) and Cheick Doucoure (£5.0m) are also sitting on nine cautions, so face an uphill task to avoid a suspension.


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 fixtures will be the FA Cup quarter-final tie against Fulham.

He’ll be back in Gameweek 31.

    Sa or Ramsdale?

    1. LeytonOrient
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ramsdale.
      But that Arsenal spot should be used elsewhere

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Well it would be Gabriel but I'm going 3 defenders Chilwell, James and Trippier

  2. romperstomper
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    36 from eleven players over the weekend and how 55 from 6 players tonight. What the what

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Nice 35 54 here

    2. Utopsis
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      47 to 96pts here - bonkers

  3. Steve Stiffler
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Would you get Maddison in for Salah (-4)?

    1. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Nah, just keep Salah for 29

      1. Steve Stiffler
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        have only 10 players for this week though

        1. Snake Juice
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          10 is fine

    2. Geriatric Unathletic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I've just done the exact. Reckon its worth it with Maddys double fixtures in 29 and BOU in 30 way better than Salah's

  4. Babit1967
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Really tempted with Tarkowski to Reece James -4, a Chelsea cleansheet pays for the move as I reckon they will score a couple. Question is, is James going to make the 60?

    1. It’s A Joke
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      If he plays

  5. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    If no Toney booking in 28, do you hold through 29?

    1. Steve Stiffler
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes boi, love giving myself heart attacks watching him

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah

    3. Connor's Calling
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Think you've got to...despite me having the Mitro scars...not 100% ideal tho.

      Wonder how much players can control their YCs - bet it's more than we think

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeah - players should be aware of it and control their temper more etc - think it was Diego Costa a few years back who was on fire but people kept avoiding bringing in as he was on 4 YCs for most of the first half the season! Mitro is just an idiot meanwhile

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          So you're hoping a player who got caught breaking the rules hundreds of times doing something even an idiot knows is against the rule is going to be sensible enough not to break a separate rule?

      2. LeytonOrient
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Toney wants to know what odds you offering?

    4. Arteta
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Of course.

    5. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      He plays better on the edge of chaos and suspension

      It's not like he costs 13M or something

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I think players score the same points during a match they're suspended for, regardless of price

  6. Connor's Calling
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    WC active this week....and given potential Intl break issues pre GW29 BB (and 1 planned transfer already)...

    A) Toney
    B) Havertz

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      How can you maximise DGWers next week and field 11 this week?

      1. Connor's Calling
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Current plan =

        GW28 (11 starters):
        Ward (bha)
        Chilwell (EVE), Botman (nfo), Trippier (nfo), Zinchenko (CRY)
        Odegaard (CRY), Saka (CRY), Maddison (bha)
        Watkins (BOU), Toney (LEI), Kane/Johnson (sou)
        Bench: Steele, Shaw, Rashford, Mitoma

        GW29: Odegaard -> Mac Allister + BB (12 doublers + Saka, Kane, Zinchenko)

        GW30: Watkins -> Haaland

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • 14 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Interesting. Was going to FH this week but may consider the WC now, thanks.

        2. Twisted Saltergater
          • 14 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Haaland vs Liverpool looks scary though!

          1. Red Star Toro
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Im considering WC and keeping Haaland now going without Toney and 5-3-2 in GW28.

    2. Red Star Toro
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m leaning towards dropping Toney on WC now, Havertz an option

      1. PogChamp
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I’m going to sell for Havertz

  7. Pep Roulette
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Sell one for Chilwell

    A. Henry
    B. Estupinan

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A. You’ll want Estu going forward.

    2. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Henry

    3. Connor's Calling
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Henry

  8. Benster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    So I have Marti, Saka, Haaland and White as my singles for DGW 29.

    Should I shift one to another doubler and if so who?

    Bet lots are in a similar situation.

    1. Steve Stiffler
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Get rid of Haaland

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      White to Fofana

    3. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      White to Chillwell/Shaw? Arsenal fixtures longer term dont scream clean sheets.

    4. Goodfeathers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      White

      1. Goodfeathers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        & if do to Chilwell or Shaw, as above

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

          Nice ine, thanks all

  9. RamboRN
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Kepa
    Mee white trips batman
    Martinelli
    Toney kane

    Subs ward, mito, rash, mac, salah, haaland, estup

    Currently got this 8 playing. Should I fh or make 1 change or 2 for -4?
    I plan on bb next week also

  10. Snake Juice
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Can't risk the 29 BB. Getting rid of Toney for Havertz.

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      You know how it works.

      1. Connor's Calling
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Got to play the %'s i guess. Needing to avoid 1 YC in 3 GWs for someone with 9 already...it's now a risk.

    2. Connor's Calling
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Thinking the same, esp with potential casualties post intl break to deal with pre GW29 BB

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Diego Costa pt 2

    4. Bluetiger1
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Agree a major worry & a concern I had before GW27 games - haul of points worth putting in but now dilemma

      Currently showing GW29 with no hits = 10 DGW starters with one FT = 11 DGW starters
      GW29 incorporating a FT & with a hit ignoring Toney and allowing to play= 12 DGW starters (-4) preferred option at the moment but will await GW28 games & IB before deciding on last call for GW29

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

    Would you use a chip this week on this team? I've FH and WC left plus BB

    Kepa
    Tripper, Tark, Kilman, white
    Saka
    Toney, kane, Watkins.

    1. LeytonOrient
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      1FT gives you 10 - hold.
      Free hit will basically just save you -4 here, no worth it

    2. AD105
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Exact same team as you for this week except Dawson for Kilman - planning to WC and attack these next 2 weeks myself

  12. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    So is the play: all chips as early as possible to get a high OR then template your way through the rest of season?

    Climbing rank is hard.

  13. Monya Meow Meow
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Best option for GW28? I have Trippier if it makes a difference.

    A) Newcastle defender + Maddison
    B) Chilwell + Almiron/Barnes

    1. LeytonOrient
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m in a similiar boat - want to add to your headache with another option:
      Fofana + Maddison

      1. Monya Meow Meow
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Haha options galore!

  14. Tcheco
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    For DGW 29:

    A. Estupinan Maddison Watkins

    B. Chilwell Salah & either Maddison or Watkins

  15. Arteta
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Sanchez ➡ Steele paid off nicely. A special thank you to De Zerbi for not being a bald fraud. 🙂

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ta Roberto.

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

    A. Mee > Chilwell (will likely be doing that transfer in GW29 in any case)

    B. Roll the free

    1. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Do it

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yep. Im doing Henry to Chilly

    3. LeytonOrient
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      How many starters?

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

        Haaland > Watkins brings me up to 11 starters and then this decision to follow.

      2. Bluetiger1
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Agree

  17. jason_ni
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    2 things,
    1st that toney card was an absolute joke.

    2nd talk about treading water. I lost 103 places from where I was at the start of the gw.

  18. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    5 goals

      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      fpl manager is the longer term plan with a wc being played as shown over two gws even out & already I hope for you to cover GW28 & GW29

  19. Amartey Partey
    • 4 Years

    What’s a bad score this GW?

    1. LeytonOrient
      • 9 Years

      Under 90

      1. Amartey Partey
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        88 in the mud

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

      mine probably 😉

    3. It’s A Joke
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Anything less than the average

      1. Amartey Partey
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        What’s the average? Not showing for me yet.

  20. Pep's Money Laundry
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Haaland to Harvertz? Y or N

  21. No Professionals
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Kepa
    Trippier Gabriel Botman Henry
    Saka Odegaard
    Kane(c) Toney

    Raya Rashford Mitoma Estupinan Haaland March
    4.1m 2ft

    Getting Maddison for March

    Which other move do you prefer
    A) Haaland to Watkins
    B) Estupinan to Chilwell

  22. jimmy12
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    GW29 captain choice is tough

    1. Shultan
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah currently on saka but thinking kane or Watkins

      1. Shultan
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Sorry thought you meant 28!

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Rashford currently but might go Mitoma

    3. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Rashford

    4. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Thinking riding Toney

  23. Shultan
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Only slight regret is tripper over gabriel

    Was never going to play odegaard over saka or Rash but discussed playing gabriel in group chat & my rival actualy did it & benched tripper!

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I played Trent over Gabriel. Was really torn over benching him.

  24. AD105
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Best 2 keepers on a WC this week?

    On Steele and Ward atm

    1. Shultan
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Steele & kepa

      1. AD105
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Do have Chilwell already, still Kepa?

        1. Shultan
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I'm planning on getting chilwell & have kepa

      2. space mercenary
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I would prefer 3 Brighton outfield players over Steele.

    2. LeytonOrient
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think Pope could deliver in the next 2 GW

    3. ggfussball
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Forster being overlooked

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

        Rightly so

  25. LeytonOrient
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Almiron for 1 week - Y/N?

    Worrying didn’t start this week, but scored so should be enough to get back in the team

  26. sentz05
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Exact money to do March to Maddison tonight. Shall I risk the price rise and wait for pressers or so it tonight?

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

      Tonight less stressful

      Firminoooo as always very impressive

      Saturday morning can you provided two alternatives with Haaland captain

  28. Fernandito

    Kepa
    Trippier Schar Zinchenko Henry
    Martinelli Saka *March
    Kane Toney Watkins
    Raya Estupiñan Mitoma Rashford

    1 FT

    A Play with 10 and take 2 FT for GW 29
    B Estupiñan to Chilwell
    C March to Maddison

  29. Pep Roulette

    Thoughts on this? I have 2 FTs.

    Kepa Raya
    Zinchenko Trippier Schar Henry Estupinan
    Saka Martinelli Rashford March Mitoma
    Haaland Kane Toney

    GW28 - Estupinan & Haaland to Chilwell & Watkins for free. Will be able to field 12 players then.

    GW29 - Henry to Estupinan

    GW30 - Toney to Haaland

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 6 Years

      11 players**

      1. Steve McCroskey
        • 10 Years

        Seems mad subbing out 2 players only to immediately get them back in again

    2. Bluetiger1

      GTG

      all depends on Toney not picking up a yellow card

  30. KAPO KANE

    Toney getting max bonus despite YC is dreamboat worthy!

      You have to change your name to Uncle Toney

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

        Maybe on his other account

      2. KAPO KANE
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Love that one!
