COMPLETE FPL WILDCARD GUIDE GAMEWEEK 4 | Fantasy Premier League Tips 2021/22

[Music] what is going on everyone my name is andy welcome back to another fpl video in this one we are talking wild cards so we’re in the international break so this week going to do a bit of different content and then next week with the usual stuff transfer tips watch list and all that good stuff some of that might come in this week but ultimately we’re going to do a few different things today it’s wild card now there is always a lot of wild cards activated over the international break in the past it was to get price rises but generally you get two weeks worth of tinkering a lot of people have seen kind of three weeks worth of games they’re happy to make changes there’s fixture runs coming up there might be restructures and stuff like that to do so we’re going to talk about it all in this video so we’re going to go through some points about why you might consider a wild card some key players to think about and of course we’ll do some draft tinkering at the end so if you enjoy it give it a like hit that subscribe button and let’s jump into it okay so first of all i want to kind of try and tackle the question should you wild card right and basically people are gonna ask themselves this question every single week basically every single game week until they actually use it and i actually find sometimes right and this is not a reason to use the wild card by the way but sometimes i find that once i’ve got it out the way and you shouldn’t think of it like that but i do once i’ve got out of the way i kind of refocus it kind of focuses me like i can’t be really super knee-jerky i have to plan ahead i have to be patient with my players because i can’t just wildcard them out every single week so sometimes i find using it especially early helps me refocus but it doesn’t mean that’s the reason that you should do it right so some points you need to think about is how many genuine issues do you have so what i’ve done here is put my team up and i’m looking at this and i’m telling you now if i put this team on twitter i’ll probably get 70 would say you don’t need to wildcard it and then you’d have 30 percent let’s say you do i mean i got someone that told me i needed to while my card my team after game week one so uh people view it in different ways but how many genuine issues do i have so you could look at that and say rafinha and ban for their issues they’re playing liverpool but i think if i wildcard i would definitely have rafinha anyway so it’s only one player and leeds fixtures after liverpool are really good so is that a genuine issue tony you could see that as an issue he’s only got one goal in the first three he might drop in price again uh there’s probably better forwards that i can put in that price ronaldo lukaku calvary for example but i can easily get to them in two moves so then i’m only taking a minus four is that enough to wildcard probably not but then you have to kind of ask yourself how many other moves would you do and they don’t always have to be these big massive moves where you’re transferring out like seven injured players and you’ve got a bunch of players that aren’t nailed on because you’re never gonna manage your team to that level you’re always gonna try and keep it looking good so generally if you’re an engaged fpl manager your team’s always going to look good so that’s something to consider right there’s never going to be a perfect time to wildcard yes people will talk about gaming 7 gameweek it doesn’t mean it works for everyone one thing to ask of is have you seen enough for some people they’ve seen the first three game weeks and they’re like okay i really need this player i really need to get rid of that player and that’s fine and you can make that judgment you need to think about have you seen enough of those players what are the fixture swings so some of the teams are about to have really good fixtures again if you count leads after liverpool leads uh everton has still got some really nice fixtures especially in the short term wolves do arsenal do but you have to ask yourself how many players you actually want from those teams so calvert-lewin is probably a standout luca dean is kind of okay for everton but there’s other good defenders as well so i wouldn’t say he’s a need to wild card wolves are looking really good they just can’t put the ball in the back of the net and they’ve got some really nice fixtures really cheap options as well so you could get ahead of the curve for example the transfer window at the time recording hasn’t closed yet if west ham were to sign a couple of midfielders that could get in ben rama’s way then the wild card could be a time to jump off him it’s not that he’s a bad player it’s not that he’s been bad he’s obviously got us a lot of points but you could be ahead of the curve on making that move for example so there’s quite a few good fixtures coming obviously liverpool do but most people have got liverpool in there um who are you removing as well because it’s very easy to just look at your team especially if they haven’t fired recently be like right i’ve got to get rid of them and like if i if i walk out of this team there’s probably tony bamford even though i’ve only just got him in then rahm i’d probably shift i’d maybe shift fernandez as well uh probably fix my defense so i don’t even know if i’d have veltman or ailing and i’d definitely get rid of simmercast because obviously he’s holding the liverpool spot for me so there’s quite a few players i would change that’s quite big but they’re not really most of the main core 11 that i’m playing every single week i’d probably keep the same goalkeeper i’ll probably keep trent and sure they’re all they’re all not bad players so there isn’t really a massive need to do it but certain things might trigger it so for example if jotter was suddenly nailed because femina was going to be out for a while well i definitely want jotter for the fixtures liverpool have got but i can’t get him because i’ve got triple liverpool so not only do i need to transfer jotter in i also need to get rid of cimacast this is all while wanting to get ronaldo or lukaku or cavalier and all at the same time and suddenly there’s quite a few moves to make and i might just wildcard even though my team is looking good and i should say like i’m not 100 set on it there’s a few things i want to fall in place uh before i do it but i don’t think you have to and i’ve put this on the last point you don’t have to activate the chip right now now just because something happened last season doesn’t mean it’ll work again but last year i spent the international break really thinking about it put it into my head if i was going to wildcard this is the team i would go for and i’ve already got a draft and stuff like that and we’ll do some tinkering at the end to the point where i actually activated the wild card on the deadline stream right and it wasn’t to try and fool anyone i just really wasn’t sure and i was like i’m just gonna go for it and it wasn’t chaos it wasn’t panic because i already knew the team that i was gonna wild card too so it wasn’t a huge problem so what i would say is if you’re kind of 50 50 like me you’re not really sure you might do it just start making a team now it doesn’t matter if you activate the chip layer obviously you want to try and catch some price rises preferably but i don’t think usually there’s not a huge amount of price falls and price rises over the international break there’s already been quite a few now there won’t be a huge amount over the next week or so so you have to look at your team how many genuine issues do you have um and they don’t have like i said they don’t have to be big issues you’re never going to get to a point where half your team is injured because you’ll transfer them out you’ll make other moves and stuff like that but if you’ve got like a restructure that you want to do there’s kind of three or four key players plus you can fix your bench and stuff like that and you’re happy that you can get through other periods of the season without the wild card i think it’s fine i don’t really worry that if i wild card now i probably won’t use the next one until after game week 30 because i’ll manage my team i’m just thinking that now might be a better time than later it may or may not be right some things sometimes things work in fpl sometimes they don’t but i think there’s i think there’s plenty of good reasons to do it now but not every team is going to have to do it or need to do it okay so i was going to have like a section of a short list of players or must own players but i didn’t want to label them as must own because there’s a little bit more to it than that so i’m going to talk about what i consider three key players that people are going to be thinking about when the wild card and then i’m going to talk about some other options and then we’ll do kind of the draft and stuff like that so one of the options is cristiano ronaldo now he’s still not in fpl he still hasn’t been priced i think he’s going to be 12.5 he could be 13. i definitely don’t think he’s going to be any higher than that i think that would be mad given that he’s 36 he’s just coming into man united obviously if this was like six or seven years ago then yeah you priced him possibly 13.5 or even maybe 14 million which he’s been before but right now i think he has to be 12.5 or 13. by the time you watch this he may have been priced right so just take that into account i don’t think he’s going to be too much more than 13. and you can see his numbers are still great right he’s 36 yes but 0.5 uh expected goals per 90 is decent not much in the way of kind of a sis threat we know that he’s there to score goals and he still managed to score 29 last season i think like a lot of people are saying like we don’t need him straight away he’s not going to score as many goals but i’m kind of treating him as any other player in that if may not have got good fixtures i get them in if they got bad pictures i’ll switch to someone else i was chatting about it on the stream last night you may have seen it and there was a bit of a discussion about who’s better right ronaldo or lukaku and i was kind of saying it doesn’t really matter because i can get both i can either get both on a wild card or i can get one then get the other one so maybe for example you keep ronaldo for newcastle west ham villa maybe everton you can make that decision then and then you switch to lukaku who we know has got really good fixtures for chelsea we’ll come on to him in a minute um there’s a lot of kind of talk about whether ronaldo will start straight away whether he’ll be on the bench and i’ve said this already i’ll be very surprised if he doesn’t start versus newcastle he’s already had a bit of a preseason i think he played minutes for juventus in their first game he’s probably going to play in the international break we can obviously keep an eye on that before the deadline and if he’s playing i just don’t see why social just wouldn’t put him straight in i know that green was been playing well but again his goal against wolves came from the right in the second game even though he played well well against leeds in the first game in gameweek two martial was put up front so i still don’t think that soul shot considers green with an out and out striker every single week obviously cavani is there anyway right so i think ronaldo is just going to go straight into the team i just don’t see why that wouldn’t happen um but obviously we can wait and see what social says if he says i’ll have to wait and see or he’s a doubt he’s got a little bit of an injury or a knock then fair enough we change our minds but i think go like i just think his ownership is going to skyrocket quick and newcastle at home is a great fixture you could see him as a captain i think he’ll be on penalties as well so if i was wildcard i’d seriously consider going for him but lukaku is cheaper so he could be a better option so just on the copyright i guess one of the the key things on a wildcard which we’ll discuss when we do the tinkering in a minute um is whether you have two premiums now you have to in my opinion you have to have sala right that is not a question to be asked he has to be in the team the fixtures of liverpool are too good he’s listed as a midfielder so he’s got more ways to get points and obviously he’s been consistent in the premier league for over four seasons now so he has to be in there so the question comes then do you have salah lukaku and ronaldo or do you just have salah plus one of them um my opinion right now is i would probably just go for one of them one of the reasons for that is i just think it takes too much out of your team to have three premiums you probably have to get rid of trent and i think liverpool’s fixtures are good enough that you probably could keep him but also there’s some very very good value strikers and obviously you can only captain one premium every week so you might decide that lukaku against aston villa will know martinez no buendia is possibly the team to go for into captain but obviously salah’s got leads ronaldo’s got newcastle so it’s not that lukaku is a bad captain option this week in game before because he’s absolutely not it’s just that he’s not necessarily the standout option because there’s lots of other good options as well then you’ve got spurs then you’ve got man city now spurs are kept three clean sheets but they’ve also conceded a lot of shots so i could see lukaku possibly scoring in that game a man said he’s tough but again he could score um but it’s not guaranteeing this this is what i was trying to say last night is it’s not that i i think that lukaku okay he’s got spurs he’s got man city therefore he cannot score any goals of course he can but you’d imagine the volume or the potential volume of goals that he will score will be reduced so the next three fixtures don’t look great villa does but spurs and man city doesn’t so i think for me right now i’m making a call between ronaldo or lukaku now one advantage lukaku has is he’s gonna be probably a million or 1.5 million cheaper and that’s going to let you do a lot with your team so that has to be considered from gameweek seven he probably looks like the better option and also one thing to consider uh if i said consider a lot i feel like i’ve said it a lot but one thing to think about is that his expected goals per 19 has expected a cis per 90 were both higher than ronaldo last year so forget about what actual goals were scored for a second i know people don’t like doing that but just think about that um that possibly means he’s got more potential for scoring goals and i think the thing i like about lukaku over and out is chelsea are a well-drilled side they know how they want to play tuco’s got them coached really well and man united we’ve already seen it they smash leads and then they struggle against southampton at times they struggle against wolves at times he’s just not really quite sure about them it’s not to say that i think ronaldo is going to be bad option or anything like that i don’t think he needs coaching he’s just going to stand front and center and score lots of goals but i guess i guess lukaku is probably playing for the better team right now and he’s cheaper so for me it’s not about both it’s about one or the other and i think a lot of that comes down to what you’re going to do with the money right now if i had to work hard right this second and get it locked in i’d probably start with ronaldo and then move to lukaku in gameweek seven so i touched on trent alexander arano just a minute ago i mean the big question is can you go without him now i’ve already seen quite a few wild card drafts be put up with lukaku with well with space for ronaldo anyway plus salad no trent alexander arnold and the teams look pretty good right and you could make a case to go for one of the cheaper liverpool defenders matip looks pretty nailed on right now i would i would expect matip to keep playing until he gets injured i think that partnership with van dyke is good and i think mati was actually a really good defender the problem is he’s just never fit enough so i wouldn’t necessarily go for him um to cover liverpool clean sheets but it is i guess an option for some people and i’m looking at these fixtures like i think the three green fixtures which makes it sense right they’re green for a reason they’re good fixtures palace brentford and watford could be good for good could be good for clean sheets i should say i guess the fact that brentford and watford are both away games isn’t ideal you’d rather they were at anfield but i think trent’s got so much to offer right he’s already we’ve already seen attack on returns he’s playing quite advanced again now and also coming in quite centrally as well you saw his assist for many the other week that was from a very central position really good assist by the way as well so i i just don’t think 7.5 million is too much i think he’s already got 22 points so he’s already averaging over seven points per match leeds is tricky because they’re a good attacking side so the clean sheet becomes difficult but then palace brentford and watford so for the next five or even three of the next five if you want to say that leeds is difficult are really good um and there’s nothing to say that the man city game might not be a tight game they could nick a clean sheet he could get forward could get nick a free kick whatever it is so i would preferably want to start with him but i do think there’s a lot you can do with the money if you go down to like a six or a 5.5 million player that’s obviously saving you like two million quid right you can use that in midfield to upgrade a player maybe that’s the way to get lukaku and ronaldo so i do think there’s a case to be made to go without trent i’m just not sure i’d like to drop him ahead of those fixtures so these are three players that either would make me think about wild card in or should pretty much be on a wild card so calvary for example as long as he’s fit we’re gonna have to wait and see if about an injury update um i’m gonna suspect that he’ll probably be fine uh he’s on penalties now as well so he looks like a really good prospect going forward penalties does really help we’ve already seen right he’s had two and raphael benitez did kind of clear out the confusion between him and richarlison that calvary gets the first one and i think he said if there was two then richarlison would get um the second one but obviously you know it’s not very often you get two penalties in the game so calvary is on penalties and he’s always he was already such a good prospect that he should probably be in our teams he might also rise to 8.3 but yeah let’s wait for fitness um concerns and stuff to to kind of blow over first jordan torres are two players that would make me consider wildcard and not on their own there would still have to be some other reasons for my team to kind of chop and change players but if firmino if the injury update comes back from him that he’s going to be out for like a month then jotter has some really really nice attacking fixtures we’ve just seen it right leeds brentford watford all to come really soon and it’s not often you get like a nailed-on player that’s so good i mean look at his expected goals and expected assists per 90. that’s super high that’s some of the best in the league right now obviously for him per 90 you have to apply a bit of context and say well he never plays 90 minutes he’s not even guaranteed to start and therefore those numbers don’t really matter and i would completely agree with that which is why so much of this hinges on what happens with firmino if amino’s going to miss like two to three games then jotter suddenly becomes a very big consideration that people want to put in their teams but a lot of us can’t because we’ve got simmer casts and so therefore that might mean a bit of a restructure along with a bunch of other things you want to do like maybe putting a premium striker in and getting rid of bruno fernandez who we should probably really talk about soon uh and getting him in and also torres very similar decent numbers but doesn’t necessarily get the minutes but right now he’s playing up front de boeing is not back from injury yet they haven’t signed a new striker uh pep guardiola is obviously complimented quite a bit and said how good he is and play in that position he would do that because you obviously might have to play in there all week but oh sorry all season but i think it generally looks like a potential good option for 7.1 as always you’ve got those considerations around man city players that they may not play and that’s an issue but for someone that’s 7.1 million that’s potentially going to play up front for one of the best if not the best attacking side in the league i think you have to consider that a move so this is the thing i was trying to say earlier with a wild card it’s not necessarily about one big player but if you’re thinking right i want to shift to a 343 i want to get a premium striker i haven’t got quite the other strikers that i want to get and i want to get jotter and i want to get torres at the same time i could fix my defense that might in itself be a good enough reason to wild card not just waiting around for a bunch of injuries or something like that okay so this is a draft i’ve pretty much very quickly thrown together okay so i’m not i’m not saying if i will kind of this is the draft i would end up with but it kind of gives us some key talking points so the reason there’s not 0.3 million in the bank is because i’m going to assume that ronaldo is going to be 12.5 and therefore i’ve got enough money to do cain to ronaldo so kane wouldn’t be in my wildcard draft i’d over have ronaldo or uh lukaku i just think that kane’s about to run into a couple of um poor fixtures after crystal palace chelsea and arsenal the future after that quite good by the way so there’s nothing to say that kane isn’t gonna be the best premium over the next six weeks but in the short term i don’t think he uh is necessarily where i would go right um i’ve got cavallo and i’ve got antonio i’ve got the triori spot in there and jotter as well jota relies heavily for me on firmino i mean arguably right you could say that josh has started the first two the easier fixtures he might start kind of some of the next like five as well leeds palace brentford and watford in particular so he could be an option anyway but if amina was out then he would i really want him in he’s just that good the other option is of course just to go to torres that gives you a little bit more money to spend and i would probably if i went for torres use that money to upgrade the defense as always though you’re thinking similarly to preseason when you were doing your game week one squad but of course now you don’t have a wild card to uh back you out of an annoying situation so one thing that i would strongly consider for this team is it’s got duffy and liver momentum what if they lose their place where’s the upgrade does that matter is sure trent and samado good enough long term um to tie me over it might not be so some of that money from doing jotter to torres might then be used to upgrade liveramento or duffy to a 4.5 instead just to give you that extra bit of kind of safety but i think if i had the squad that i wanted and i had to go in with two 4.1 then i probably would obviously some of you will have already made money on simmercast and maybe you you know you’ve earned like an extra 0.1 million out of that um so you might have a little bit more money to spend you might have a bit less money to spend as well um but something like that so i would ask myself how many changes am i making from my current team so calvin lewin the other premium striker spot torres triori sissoko liveramento duffy cemedo so i’m making eight changes to my squad but then i would ask myself going back to my first original point right at the start how many of these are genuine issues how many of these are you know players i’m taking out i don’t really need to so i’m swapping torres and triori and sissoko into midfield but i mean one of them is basuma out for suzuka so who really cares yes hisoka might be a bit more attacking yes it frees up a brighter spot potentially but that’s not really a move for wild carding triorian torres come in for um benrama for one of them again benrama could be good going forward and obviously fernandez is the other one on fernandez i think if i was wildcon i would definitely get rid of him i think if you’ve got him and you’re not card and there’s not you don’t have to get rid of him we’re all assuming he loses penalties i think he probably will doesn’t mean he can’t get points right he got his hat-trick without a penalty so the idea that he can’t score points without penalties is crazy he still got quite a few attacking returns last year but i think if i was wildcarding you you’ve kind of got to make that decision to restructure to a premium forward spot and so you’ve got to lose fernandez and that’s where taurus comes in and he could be really good value right if he keeps his place but we’ll have to see if man city sign another striker and then i’ve got samado duffy and liveramento over veltman ayling and whoever my other four millions by simmercast right now so cimicass isn’t being played anyway so swapping them in for liveramento duffy yeah okay it gives me a bit more cover on the bench right now but it’s not been a big deal so far and i don’t expect it to be going forward like in my main team right now i’ve got veltman if he plays especially if he goes in at right wing back for brighton he could be just as good as sumaida going forward so it’s nice to get triori and tomato in there because you’re taking advantage of fixture swings but i don’t feel like the players that i’ve got right now have got bad fixture swings anyway so if i did for my own team like fernandez down to torres for example then i could afford to get ronaldo or lukaku in straight away for a hit and then suddenly i’ve got a very similar team to this anyway i’ve just got bamford instead of calvin lewins so again that is a decision that everyone will just have to make on their own is you know is this the right time am i making enough changes i would be pretty happy with this wild card side i just don’t know if it’s enough of a difference maker over the side that i’ve currently got but if i can save a minus four and get cavalier instead of bamford and change a bunch of other things that might be enough in the end um i probably wouldn’t do too many other changes i suppose the big one is trent out um to like another 5.5 we’ll just put in rudiger i think chelsea defense going forward is good and also you’re on a wild card so you don’t want to have to book in a load of transfers so although spurs and city aren’t great we know how good the chelsea defense is and then they got a lot of good good players there you could go for reese james because he’ll be back from suspension after the next game um but obviously you wouldn’t be able to play him this week so that’s something to consider but if you want him long term you’d possibly just put rhys james in instead and then because you’re wild card in you’ve hopefully got players that are going to play so you could play shaw samado and duffy in game week 4 for example and they get get james back afterwards and this slowly starts to let you get to another premium forward so the one we’re trying to get to here is lukaku um so i’ve got make up 0.6 but i’ve actually got make up 0.8 because kane probably needs a couple of extra 0.1 millions to get to to get to ronaldo so realistically the options are over to downgrade shaw to another 4.5 but i just think that’s too much money out of the fence or to downgrade torres to a six so whoever this is it could be um it could be sar it could be harrison or something like that um and that gives you the 0.5 to spend so you’ve got lukaku and you’ve still got the money to upgrade uh kane to ronaldo so i i don’t think that’s that bad i really don’t but the thing is you’re taking out trent who looks really good to get two premium forwards in who i don’t think you’re necessarily going to want long term now you can always make changes later and restructure but there are so many good 7.5 to 8 million forwards like i feel like maybe having trent in one of those is possibly better than lukaku and james in the short term once those game week seven fixtures here then maybe that’s the time to make a difference but if you look at liverpool’s fixtures they play watford and gamerkay right you could save from gameweek seven man city man united to come in the next three and then west ham also brighton arsenal that might be the time to jump off trent alexander arnold for a bit the perfect fixtures is when you know uh rhys james starts to get southampton brent from norwich newcastle burnley so that might be a good time to jump off and then use that money how you want by gameweek seven we’ll have a whole different conversation to be having but so it is possible to have two premium forwards and salah and i think salary isn’t like a non-negotiable for me he has to be in the team but it just it just means getting rid of trenton i don’t know if i’m happy doing that but if reese james keeps playing week and week out he’s a great option i just don’t know if that’s going to keep happening around champion z which is also going to start soon so that might be a move for later on but something like that is what i would do it’s just is it enough changes is it enough decent changes for my team i’m just not sure right now but that’s the kind of draft i’d be putting together if i was wildcard there you go that is it for this one thank you for watching hopefully you enjoyed it and found it useful getting a lot of thoughts out there around the wildcard like i’m just still kind of undecided to be honest i don’t think my team really needs it but if there was a few things that went certain ways like transfers that came in you know torres and joshua are going to be options and i want to get calvary in switch to a premium striker avoid taking a hit and fix my defense i could see myself doing it so i’m not ruling it out i’m not trying to like you know set it up for some crazy last minute thing like i will for most of the next two weeks i will probably work out what my wild card draft would be then if i need to press it at the end i’m done i’m not one thing not to do is suddenly panic and press it at the end when you haven’t given it any thought that’s a crazy thing to do but yeah give a like if you enjoyed it hit that subscribe button if you’re new around here leave a comment below if you’ve got any more questions i’ll
