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.

          Me too. I was first in the group 2 weeks ago, and then survived by 1 point last week. 😀

      Thanks for your hard work.
      Knocked out last week.
      Was always gonna be hard to survive with a
      GW rank of 9million plus.

      Cheers all, well done to those on here who are still in it and hopefully you'll make the final 100 in a few GWs time.

      Somehow I'm still alive. Last year I made it all the way to the second to the last week but was knocked out when KDB scored four goals against Wolves. Sadly, had he settled for only a hat trick I would have made it through. Thanks for doing this. It adds to the fpl experience.

    8. SpaceCadet
      • 10 Years

      Made it but ranked 322 with only 308 teams left?

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

    Planning to BB 29 but only have 9 playing this week, 2FTs

    Kepa
    Tripps Mee Gabriel Botman
    Ode Saka Mitoma*
    Kane Toney Haaland*

    (Raya Rashford* March* Estu*)

    Haaland & March > Watkins & Maddison the obvious move here?

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

      Looks hard to critique, yeah...

    2. dshv
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I did estu to chiwell

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

      I think Estu to Chilwell is the best move. 10 players is fine for this gw I reckon, & you’ll keep 2 free transfers for upcoming gws

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

    What would you do here? Planning to BB29 but only have 9 playing this week, 2FTs + 4.1 itb.

    Thinking of doing just one transfer and carrying over the second, but open to other ideas

    Kepa
    Trippier Mee Zinchenko Botman
    Saka Martinelli Mitoma* March*
    Kane Toney

    (Raya Haaland* Rashford* Estu*)

    A) March > Maddison
    B) Martinelli > Maddison
    C) Mee > Chilwell
    D) Estupinan > Chilwell
    E) Toney > Watkins

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

      D

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

    Whatcha reckon? Planning to BB29.

    A) Estupinan -> Chilwell
    B) March -> Maddison
    C) Save FT

    Kepa
    Trippier, James, Zinchenko, Mee
    Saka, Martinelli
    Kane, Watkins, Toney

    Raya, Estupinan, March, Mitoma, Rashford
    Bank 7.7m, 1FT, BB/FH left

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

      C

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

      A all day long

      GW28 - 11 players
      GW29 - ft possible check on James as a concern with chance to transfer to another DGW player,
      maybe left field a Leicester defender

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

        Only problem with A/B is it makes the below not possible:

        29: Martinelli -> Bruno, and
        30: Toney -> Kane

        Would be 1.2m short if doing A

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

      A

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

    Keeper of choice for gwk28?

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

      Kepa or Ramsdale

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

      Kepa

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

      Kepa

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

    Surely you'd rather have Estu on your BB over Mee/Henry?

    Just play with 10 this week.

  7. Flynny

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Bottomed.....what to do here please? 4mitb. 2fts. Will bb29

    Henry and haaland to Chilwell and watkins is current thinking. Gives me 10 starters. Thanks

    Kepa (raya)
    Trippier botman Zinchenko Henry (estu)
    Saka martinelli (march mitoma rashford)
    Kane toney (haaland)

    1. Bluetiger1

      GTG

    2. gart888
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Why move Henry this week? I'd rather get in another starter or roll the transfer I think.

    3. Taegugk Warrior
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      We have same team and considering march to maddison

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

    Ivan Toney good haul of points but as many feared with now on 9 yellow cards & if like me in for GW28 & GW29 has to survive two matches

    Fingers cross makes these matches ok
    GW28 plays - no bookings
    GW29 first part of two plays - no booking

    ---
    GW29 second part of two plays - no booking ideally
    GW30 I'm transfer Toney out & Haaland back as I cannot go each week wondering if getting booked

    1. Deer-in-headlights
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm actually considering moving Toney to Haaland in GW29 rather than waiting until GW30.

  9. NJ MetroStars
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    anyone have any insight into maddison's health? reports were his knee acting up and he saw a specialist, then he's back from "illness" and playing? hard to follow

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

      Looking at him or Jim Bowen for GW29, I think...

  10. FPL Bond @ Twitter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Fabio Borges Bench boosted this week with 33 points on his bench. No wonder he is the GOAT..

  11. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    FPL Towers must be shut down ce soir. . . =o/

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

    Haaland could well drop a fair bit by the time we're looking him back for GW30, IMO...

  13. Taegugk Warrior
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A. Estu to Chilwell
    B. March to Maddison

    1. Bruno Commando
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      About to pull the trigger for B

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

      depends if 11 for GW28
      if only 10 for GW28 I would go for Option A

      1. Taegugk Warrior
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        what's the different go for 10 or 11 for the move...?

        have 2FT. not decided for other FT to use or roll

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

      A

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

    Haaland > Watkins
    or
    Salah > Maddison

    ?

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

      both (-4) hit

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

      I did the top one and seriously considering doing both for a -4. Its hard to know with Liverpool how theyll do against City and Chelsea

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

        if i did both its -8 already doing Bueno > Trippier

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

      Haaland to Watkins

      Leicester away I am not expecting much from them

    4. OptimusBlack
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Both

  15. I Must Break You
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Are anyone else's custom stats tables all FUBAR since the change to the premium tools area? I have to rebuild certain columns in each one, and the stats data is clearly not matching to the right players...

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      OK that's weird. Just after I posted this question, the My Stats Tables area went back to how it was before and everything working fine now. There must be a beta site they're messing around with? Or maybe it's operator error on my part somehow....

  16. FantasyHero
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Brought in kane for haaland

    Now do I do (for a hit)

    A. Darwin to Watkins
    B. Salah to son

    This will give me 11 players but one of them is Tark. So could take another hit to do both transfers above for -8

    Will be wildcarding gw 29

  17. HellasLEAF
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Those who have saved WC. Which GW you saving it for?

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

      I thought "when I need it" and I kind of need it now so pulled the trigger

    2. chocolove
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Only 11 gw left. The longer you hold it, it'll become a disadvantage.

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

        We all got free WC from gw 17.
        And for me, my team from 17 is not that good anymore.

        Free WC 17-27 | WC | 28-38. Good split.
        BB 29.

        Will focus on 11 starter from 30-38 with my FH and TC.

    3. Philosopher's Stones
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Using it in 29 or 30.

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

    Alot of people are asking already but does Maddison outscore Salah over the next 2 GWs? (-4)

  19. klopptimusprime
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is anyone thinking of Reece James instead of Chilwell? Or not worth the risk

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

      I did on my W/C. Am glad on the basis that I would have benched Chilwell's two returns in the last two! Hopefully James can do well as will be a good differential!

  20. I Must Break You
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Any Chelsea defenders nailed to start GW28 and both GW29 matches?

    1. Ruinenlust
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Chilwell, Fofana, Koulibaly

      Of course Watkins rose yesterday, but all these other guys due to rise who are already on my team don't.

    Does it gtg ?
    Kepa
    Trippier / Mings / Burn / Chilwell / Zinchenko
    Maddison / Saka / Martinelli
    Toney / Watkins
    Subs : Raya / March / Mitoma / Haaland
    Thankss

  24. FantasyClub
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    If Toney was to get another YC next GW28 who are the candidates to replace him with???

    I have Watkins & Kane beside him…

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

      Solanke worth a look if that was to happen, IMO.

    2. gart888
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Haaland.

      1. gart888
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Or Havertz if you don't want Haaland for some reason.

        1. FantasyClub
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Ings could be a good punt?
          Has Iheanacho lost his spot for some reason?

          1. gart888
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Why are you over complicating this? Haaland is the best goal scorer this league has ever seen.

            1. Ruinenlust
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Not against big teams

                • 10 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Uhhh, he's scored against Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Man U (hat trick!) this season. Didn't score against Chesea but that was an away fixture.

  25. Royal5
