LiveFPL Rank Tiers – GW29 autosubs and chip usage

Gameweek 29 is almost over, therefore we can use LiveFPL rank tiers to analyse the decisions made by FPL managers.


Autosubs made

With the final match of Gameweek 29 having very little FPL involvement, we’re not able to assess the autosubs. Whilst only a few of the top 10k were affected by the absence of Tino Livramento and Thiago Silva, there was a greater share overall who owned Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias and Jarrod Bowen.

The hauls of Joao Cancelo and Conor Coady brought some luck, joined by the successes of Wolves defenders and Jacob Ramsey amongst the elite.

Chip usage of rank tiers

Almost a quarter of the top 10k used their Triple Captain chip this week, mostly on Mohamed Salah. Roughly 9% used a Bench Boost. Yet 21.8% of this tier and 22.47% overall have already used both Free Hit chips before the upcoming blanks and doubles.

Top 10k template

Compared to the Gameweek 28 template, there are five changes. In come Spurs trio Son Heung-min, Matt Doherty and Dejan Kulusevski, replacing Aston Villa’s Philippe Coutinho, Lucas Digne and Ramsey. Also new in are Andrew Robertson and Kieran Tierney, instead of Cancelo and Reece James.

A starting XI with Jose Sa, Armando Broja, Raul Jimenez and Son Heung-min (can’t have four Spurs players) on the bench would have scored a whopping 115 points, with Salah captain.

Effective Ownership in rank tiers

The EO (percentage of starting XI teams, plus captaincy, of a player) numbers are fairly consistent across ranks for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Aaron Ramsdale, with the high triple captaincy of Salah becoming more evident the higher you go up the rankings. Ownership of Doherty was vastly different overall.
