Fantasy Football Suspension Report

Suspension Report Gameweek 16

NolanNo fewer than six players have managed to clock up a suspension for the coming game-week, none more notable than Kevin Nolan, who received a straight red card for a challenge on Jordan Henderson. We rather suspect he may have fancied Christmas off having viewed how rash and unnecessary it was! However, he may not have factored in the Capital One cup match in mid-week next week as he will now only miss 2 FPL games as a result.

Plenty of players are falling foul of the ‘totting up’ rule as 5 yellow cards at this stage of the season means an automatic 1 match suspension. In these situations it may just best to bench your player for a week, if you have substitutes who can cover for you.

First up this week on the 5 yellows front is Fabien Delph who picked up his 5th yellow in the defeat at Craven Cottage. Fabien will now miss the game against Man United this weekend. James McCarthy of Everton will miss this weeks home match against Fulham, following his 5th yellow against Arsenal at the weekend. Jonathan Walters of Stoke may once again be branded a card magnet if things continue, his 5th yellow card to date sees him get the weekend off too, funny really as in the last 3 seasons his record has been great in the Premier League notching up only 11 cards for the 3 seasons combined.

Nolan aside, the other 3 mentioned are all lesser owned in terms of % and it’s more likely that you may have Yohan Cabaye in your team who will also sit out GW16 following his 5th yellow card received at Old Trafford at the weekend. Last but by no means least, Jose Manuel Flores Moreno, or Chico to you and me, will miss the trip Norwich this weekend, following his 5th yellow of the season against Hull.

It’s also worth pointing out, that yellow cards (even if you get two in a match to receive a red) can not be appealed so these suspensions will all stand.



Any player who picks up 5 yellow cards prior to 1st January will serve an automatic 1 match suspension. The following players all have 4 yellow cards to their name, meaning, if they collect just 1 more, they will receive an automatic 1 match suspension. Worth a quick check on the list, before you make your transfers, especially later in the season when the suspensions become 2 or 3 games.

Additions to the list below this week include goalkeeper Tim Howard which is quite worrying for many, Gareth Barry (which isn’t) and Swansea’s Ashley Williams, which may be!

    Hello guys,
    Would you play Morrison or Amalfitano in midfield this weekend?
    And who would you put in defence Turner (Cardiff) or Davies (Hull)?

    I’m thinking Morrison – but I’m worried he won’t get 90 mins, and Davies, as Hull should beat Stoke at home???

    What do you think?

      Id play Morrison. He has personally been in good form I think.

      Sessengon should have got a bagful against Norwich. Surely west brom cant continue to be so unlucky so Id go Davies of Hull even though Stoke should be on a high after beating Chelsea.

      • Demsie says:

        Been saying that for weeks though mate (not you personally but we all have, well, I have then)..Sess should have a had a hat trick. Is his finishing just poor co she’s certainly getting the chances, just not putting them away.

        Don’t know. I can’t recommend sess though

          Thanks guys.

          There just don’t seem to be any decent mids in that £5.0 – £5.5 range.
          Brady stayed on the bench for the whole of the last game and his recent form reads:

          Suppose that’s why they’re cheap.

        • TheDreamers says:

          redmecca – got rid of Brady for Fer earlier in week before he rose in price (5.8)

          was also looking at Redmond (4.6) – he is worth a look.

        • redmecca says:

          Hi Dreamers,
          How about Oviedo of Everton, only played the last 3 games, but bagged 28 pts

        • TheDreamers says:

          I think his finishing is poor Demsie and also a lack of confidence
