Captains

Captain Sensible – Salah and Kane battle for the Gameweek 19 armband

The Boxing Day-orientated Gameweek 19 looks to be taking Fantasy managers back in time, with the captain battle appearing to be between two of last season’s usual suspects.

We’ve gone over those doing well in the poll before doing a comparison between the individuals themselves, their teams and their opponents in order to find the best candidate.

Captain Poll

The Gameweek 19 captain poll indicates that this week the most popular skipper will be either Harry Kane (£12.5m) or Mohamed Salah (£13.2m), much like it was for so much of last season.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward led the poll with a tally of 38% just over 24-hours ago but that has since been cut back. He now claims just 30.9% of the vote, sneaking out Salah who sits on 28.7%.

Way off in third place is Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (5.0%) while Kane’s Spurs colleague Son Heung-min (£8.5m) has just 3.4% backing.

Eden Hazard (3.4%), Marcus Rashford (2.9%) and Anthony Martial (2.6%) are the other contenders in this bracket of support.

Not a single Manchester City player has more than 3% backing in the poll, with Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) languishing far down the list on 2.4%.

        6 - Wolves have won six of their last eight league games against Fulham (D1 L1), scoring three or more goals on five occasions. Hungry

        As per Optajoe

          Using FFScoutcast logic Fulham will be angry and desperate to put that right

              The trick is to not have any rivals

                2 months, 29 days ago

                We're all rivals G

                I went out to triple captain Auba last week. You need extreme luck to dodge all these people and win. Just be happy it happens sooner rather than later.

                  I know. It’s like giving two fingers to rivals too.

                Based on the inverse momentum laws of expectation in the cosmos, a little ticket has fallen out of the big supercomputer in my shed.

                It says this “salah blank sterling haul”

                Damn, Kane EO over 100%. Wish I'd captained him now, hate owning an expensive player who actually hurts my rank when he scores. Bah humbug!

                  He is going to blank/not start so don't worry (not trying to jinx my statement at all)

                    Double bluff?

                    Rotation is going to carnage today, good day to be a lucky FPL manager.

                That moment when you realise 3 of your starting 11 are wolves players.

                Mark went for Shaw, Pogba, and Ings. Never would've guessed that.

                Digne on my bench... 🙁

                Decided to play Doherty ahead of him.

                  I believe the 'Baines rule' applies here
