LiveFPL provides fantastic detail regarding player ownership, chip usage and captaincy. As a result, this is what Gameweek 34 looks like.
With Gameweek 34 long being marked as a prime Wildcard opportunity, the effective ownership (EO) figures have changed a lot from recent weeks. Chelsea duo Mason Mount and Kai Havertz are both over 80% within the top 10k, with Reece James at 59%.
Mount, Havertz and Mohamed Salah all exceed 25% captaincy, giving a rare Gameweek of variation.
As mentioned, the Wildcard has been activated by a lot of the FPL community this week. With the back-to-back Double Gameweeks 36 and 37 almost locked in (apart from Wolves v Man City), managers have been strategising to make the most of all remaining chips. There has even been slight usage of a Free Hit this time.
So let’s take a glance at these 143,606 Wildcards. This is the template 15-man squad.
Four Chelsea players appear, as there is a defensive double-up for both them and Man City. Recently popular names like Harry Kane, Dejan Kulusevski and Aaron Ramsdale don’t appear anymore, with the glamorous and cheap front line of Teemu Pukki, Emmanuel Dennis and Eddie Nketiah.
With such quality in defence and midfield, Wildcarders seemingly intend to play with two – or possibly even one – forward during the remaining rounds.
