The latest FPL deadline has passed. Time to pick out some of the more interesting managerial trends by taking a look at key data from LiveFPL.
Over 80% of the top 10k captained either Bruno Fernandes or Cristiano Ronaldo for their Double Gameweek 25, taking the former’s effective ownership (EO) beyond 100%. There will be virtually no gain for those who own but didn’t captain Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joao Cancelo, Jarrod Bowen or Diogo Jota, while those who put the armband on Mohamed Salah will an approximate 160% gain over others in this tier.
LiveFPL tells us that the Wildcard was the most played chip in Gameweek 25. 3.13% of managers have played their Wildcard chip this week, meaning that the Wildcard chip has been played by 18.39% of managers overall. Otherwise chip usage was very low this week.
Amongst the 2.96% of managers who used their Wildcard this Gameweek, the below is the template squad. Neither Fernandes nor Ronaldo are in there, which is a surprise.
