Barring irrops, your chances of being downgraded for an upgrader are nonexistent. Some GAs may consider a discount F fare a "Y fare with a complimentary upgrade," which is IMHO utterly incorrect and would constitute deceptive marketing practices on UA's part (in every regulatory sense!). But even that would only come into play in the case of a flight cancellation.
