Which Players Are Suspended Or Nearing Suspension In FPL?

Welcome to our FPL suspension update, where we unravel the intriguing world of player suspensions in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL). In this article, we’ll shed light on which players are currently suspended or teetering on the edge of a ban. Keeping a close eye on player availability is vital for FPL managers, and we’ve got you covered with the latest insights and analysis. So, let’s dive into the suspension landscape and discover which players are walking the tightrope in FPL.

We also keep you informed about the current suspended players, whether they’re due to yellow card accumulation or red card dismissals.

When Are the Suspension Cut-Off Points?

The table below, sourced from the Football Association website, outlines the key cut-off points for different yellow card thresholds.

At the forefront of our concerns is the five caution mark, a milestone that Premier League players must avoid in the first 19 league matches of the season. In most cases, this reaches Gameweek 19. However, Manchester City and Brentford, who contest their 19th fixture in Gameweek 20, are exceptions. Keep in mind that any postponements, weather-related or otherwise, can alter this situation.

It’s worth noting that punishments for yellow card accumulation are competition-specific, whereas suspensions for red card dismissals apply to all competitive matches.

Players With 3 or 4 Yellow Cards Close To Being Suspended

Currently, there are nine players teetering on four yellow cards, just one booking away from a suspension.

The Aston Villa pair of Douglas Luiz (£5.6m) and Lucas Digne (£4.7m), owned by 9.2% and 6.4% of FPL managers, have been treading on this fine line since Gameweek 7. Joining them is the 13.8%-owned Bruno Fernandes (£8.3m), who received his fourth booking in the Manchester derby on Sunday.

Additionally, Alexis Mac Allister (£5.8m) and Nottingham Forest’s Ibrahim Sangare (£5.0m) and Orel Mangala (£5.0m) also reached their fourth yellow card in Gameweek 10.

A further 36 players are one caution away from the four-yellow mark, including notable names like Kieran Trippier (£7.0m), Matty Cash (£5.2m), Destiny Udogie (£4.9m), Kaoru Mitoma (£6.5m), and the now-injured Pedro Neto (£5.8m) – all carrying three yellow cards.

Current Suspensions and Return Dates for Gameweek 11

A few players have reached the dreaded five-yellow mark and are now suspended for one game in the Premier League. These include Josh Cullen (£5.0m), Lucas Paqueta (£6.0m), and Edson Alvarez (£5.0m). So you’ll need to decide whether you want to bench these players or sell if you own any of them.

On the positive side, some players will return from their suspensions in Gameweek 11. This list includes Emerson Palmieri (£4.5m), Connor Roberts (£4.4m), Manuel Akanji (£4.9m), Curtis Jones (£4.9m), and Ashley Young (£4.4m).

However, Lewis Cook (£5.0m), who was shown a red card for violent conduct in Bournemouth’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers, will be out until Gameweek 12.

As we wrap up this FPL suspension report, one thing is crystal clear – the dynamics of player availability can make or break your Fantasy Premier League season. Staying informed about suspensions is a crucial part of your FPL strategy. With our in-depth analysis and updates, you’re well-equipped to make the right choices and navigate the suspension tightrope successfully. Keep managing your FPL squad wisely, and remember, knowledge is power in the world of Fantasy Premier League.
