Captain Sensible

Kane and Sterling headline Gameweek 3 captaincy debate

Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are the three teams being considered for the Gameweek 3 captaincy.

They face Bournemouth, Newcastle and Arsenal respectively, and the lack of clean sheet potential for each of those opponents has some Fantasy Premier League managers scratching their heads.

In one sense there is plenty of choice for the armband in Gameweek 3, but a spread of potentially viable options can also increase the risk of falling behind.

As ever, we have assessed all the candidates based on their individual form and the defensive capabilities of their upcoming opponents in Captain Sensible.

As this article includes data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those who have signed up for the 2019/20 campaign can access it in full.

Captain Poll

Captain Poll results as of Thursday morning

Harry Kane (£11.0m) is the people’s choice for the Gameweek 3 captaincy after he won the latest poll.

The Spurs forward claimed a 38.8% share of the vote this week ahead of Newcastle’s trip to north London.

It seems likely that his backers were swayed more by his Gameweek 1 display than the largely anonymous outing against Manchester City.

That is completely understandable given a meeting with Aston Villa is likely to bear more resemblance to a clash with Newcastle than visiting the reigning Premier League champions.

Against Villa, Kane topped the Gameweek 1 charts for shots in the box and scored twice.

This week’s runner up is Raheem Sterling (£12.2m), as Manchester City prepare for an away match at Bournemouth.

The England international currently shares the summit of the Premier League goal-scoring charts with Norwich’s Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) on four goals, having failed to blank yet so far this season.

That has led to 29% of the voters in our poll backing Sterling for the Gameweek 3 captaincy.

Bournemouth are certainly favourable opposition too, having failed to keep a clean sheet in either of their 2019/20 matches.

Furthermore, both of these were against newly-promoted sides Sheffield United and Aston Villa. That should see Manchester City prove too much for the Cherries.

Salah’s stock has fallen somewhat after Liverpool’s poor display at Southampton

Some way off in third place in the poll is Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).

The fixture is definitely a favourable one for Liverpool’s attackers given that Arsenal kept the fewest number of clean sheets, but the captain interest looks to be elsewhere.

While Sterling and Kane are both sitting on more than 30% in the poll, Salah has just 6% backing at the time of writing.

It seems likely that the Gameweek 2 blank, in which Liverpool were severely tested by Southampton, has played a part in this.

Just behind Salah in fourth place is Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne (£9.6m) who has a 3.8% share.

After a seven-point haul in Gameweek 1, the Belgian international registered two assists and maximum bonus the following weekend to take home 11 points.

De Bruyne’s creativity is the key factor in his appeal, as well as reliability of returns for someone who seems nailed-on in this Manchester City side.

De Bruyne is seen as the alternate Manchester City option at this stage

However, the fact that he is not viewed as much of an ‘explosive’ option compared to Sterling, is probably why on a handful of Fantasy managers are considering him for the Gameweek 3 captaincy.

Creeping into the conversation already is Pukki, who lit up the transfer market this week following his hat-trick against Newcastle.

3.4% of the voters believe that he can continue his hot form against a Chelsea side still searching for its first clean sheet of the season.

Another in-form option is Anthony Martial (£7.7m), who scored his second goal of the season against Wolves in Gameweek 2.

The returning Son Heung-min (£9.5m) has been selected by 2.3% in the poll, although what role he will play on Sunday afternoon remains to be seen.

Lucas Digne (£6.0m), Sadio Mané (£11.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.6m) are the only other assets with more than 1% support in the poll.

    Sterling for me. Higher ownership. In form. Likes playing against Bournemouth.

    1. ZeBestee

      The reason I am not bringing in Kane. Next 4 for Sterling all point to him having the armband.

          Would you use FT for salah-sterling(c). Get mane in next week so happy to keep like this if I do it

      Feel like the only one without KDB. Should I

        Had hi in so many of my preseason drafts before binning him off.

        Need David Silva, Mahrez and Gundongen to step up and score most of Etihads points this season.

      7. Trossard or not Trossard
          2 months, 21 days ago

          We share 7 of the same players and I'm without De Bruyne as well. A bit worried but it's still one player. Go for him if -4, otherwise next week.

          C, unless you want to downgrade Sterling to KDB to afford upgrading one of the forwards into Kane/Auba.

        Still none the wiser lads, so would appreciate some thoughts.
        Who to start?

        A) Lundstram(LEI)
        B) Dendoncker(BUR)

        Thanks in advance

        1. Jealous Viper

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Best odds on Dendoncker scoring a goal are at 7:1

          Best odds on Sheff U keeping a cleanie at 5:2

          I'm not convinced Dendoncker's assist potential is much greater than Lundstrums so the odds suggest playing Lunny

            Priced out of that unfortunately. On my bench is Lundstram and Montoya. Any change in order?

              Id put Montoya ahead, slightly better CS odds and slightly more attacking. (It is close though)

        Repost:

        Anyone looking at Haller from Westham? They have nice upcoming fixtures and he looks like a very good player.

        Or not done enough yet to suggest he will do well?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Good fixture this GW for him to start firing this weekend. Hold if you have.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            I don't have, but watching a bit of his videos shows a player who is indeed very good given his height. He holds up the ball well, he can dribble, has a good eye for a pass (assist potential) and all round player who is strong enough for the PL shackles. Westham are going to improve their offensive output, and he is their main man this season. Only issue is he has had only 1 game against City, which is difficult to judge. Defensively they have been awful though.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              2 months, 21 days ago

              They have great fixtures for a long time so we can keep an eye on him rather than rush to get him in now before the fixtures 'expire'

              1. ZeBestee

        Find myself on a -8 just before a H2H tie with my main rival. Our squads are similar, the key differential for me is KDB, he will almost certainly cap Sterling (who i also have).

        I feel the only way to beat him is to spin the wheel with Kevin.

        What would you do? Kevin or Raheem?

            Was all set on captain Kane, but now this has put me in 2 minds. Sterling's and man city's stats are just too good to resist!

              Kane is a no brainer this week. Otherwise there is no point in owning him I'd you dont captain!

                Was my logic when I didn't have him in my team....that I didn't think I would need to captain him within first 9 gw.

                But ended up getting him in from gw 1 and now got this dilemma

              It is between Sterling and Kane really, but Arsenal Pool games involve loads of goals, so expect Mane/Salah/Firmino/Auba/Laca to all be involved.

                    Depends what you after? Attacking potential with the odd cleanie or clean sheets with the odd attacking return

                        I have both but zinc would be first choice for me, then monitor chelsea's form

                          Emerson looks more nailed although Zinc will get more ppm.

                    Mane is my standout option this week. Strange he's not in the top 3. I guess it's down to ownership here which defeats the point of the captaincy poll to find out who the best pick is this week

                    In any case, man in form against a poor defence.

                    1. Rinseboy

                      2 months, 21 days ago

                      agree with this. He looks on a hot streak already

                      Sterling in arguably better form against worse opposition.

                      Hardly down to ownership mate

                        It actually is, most people will vote for the one they are C themselves, therefore down to ownership...

                          Not all though. I'd captain Kane if I had him, but I don't.

                          In most cases I’d agree, but for this week no because Sterling is clearly a MUCH better pick than Mane regardless of ownership

                            I agree that Sterling is, all I am saying is that the C poll is flawed. One of those rare occasions I am agreeing with Bemba 😀

                      I think I'm going with Kane just because I know poch absolutely will play him. Simply don't trust Pep after last game, or ever really

                        You know who is nailed at Man City - Ederson, Laporte, KDB, Bernardo, Sterling.

                        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                          • 5 Years
                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          No such thing.

                          Only 2770 minutes last season with no significant injuries

                          Kane plays everything

                        • 10 Years
                        2 months, 21 days ago

                        This is a great point, it would be very Pep to make a few changes to keep everyone on their toes.

                        I own Sterling, owned him last year after he hauled in GW1 against Arsenal, was benched in GW2.

                          It's just not worth the risk. If the other options were meh then sure. But if you own Kane (yeah yeah Cardiff blah) then you have an absolutely golden alternative

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            I own Kane, Sterling & Salah so agree.

                            Sterling may outscore Kane by 50 points over the season but we are only looking at this match for the captaincy

                        2 months, 21 days ago

                        I expect Sterling to outscore Kane by 50 points this year barring injuries

                        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                          • 5 Years
                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          Probably but not really relevant when assessing a captain pick on a game by game basis. Kane's totals have dropped largely due to losing 500-700 minutes to injury. He is as explosive when fit

                          1. panda07
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            Yeah I just think that Kane's max points if he stays fit is around 220 whereas Sterling's is 270+. There will be times that Sterling will be benched and you'll be annoyed but I think it will happen less than you think

                            1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                              • 5 Years
                              2 months, 21 days ago

                              Well you've just randomly increased sterlings points there above his highest ever score, and not Kane's. And Sterling actually has a lower ppminute last season than in the previous.

                              So I'm not convinced

                          2. panda07
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            There's also a chance of a 1 pointer from Kane because of his glass ankles

                              You don't spend 11m on a player in the first place if you're paranoid about injuries!

                        Lots of punts here. Can you find a way to get in Martial or Rashford

                      2 months, 21 days ago

                      Actually just realised i can sneak in a transfer. Do i do
                      A) Wilson and Perez to Rashford and McGinn
                      Or
                      B) Wilson and Perez to Barnes and Martial. Both with 2 ft

                        • 6 Years
                        2 months, 21 days ago

                        I would do the first one. Rashford must be on penalties now I think Martial has not had enough shots to continue scoring

                        1. Jealous Viper
                          • 1 Year
                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          Yeah thought the same. Rashford passes the eye test for me and liked the coach's comments about McGinn

                        I was on same situation but went martial. The lure of a midfielder playing up top and at that price is too good option to give up

                          A sounds quite good actually

                        My big question of the week.

                        Would you trade out Robertson to Digne or Laporte for -4? Or just go with playing both Robertson and VVD against Arsenal?

                        1. Rinseboy
                          • 7 Years
                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          no way. I think Robbo will punish a few this week

                          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                            • 5 Years
                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            This phrase needs to be consigned to the bin. Punishment requires the alternatives to fail also

                            1. Trossard or not Trossard
                                2 months, 21 days ago

                                Don't forget the -4 though. Not a FT

                          2. STONEROSES

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            Not worth a hit to get rid of liv def playing at home, nope

                            1. Big Chris Wood
                              • 6 Years

                              Thanks chaps, I will holddoor

                            Not for a hit definitely. Just play them.

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            Wouldn't even do it on a FT if I had him...

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            Not for a hit, probably not at all.

                            Just ply them

                            hell no

                            I'd stick with Robbo

                          Best £5M def?

                          I’m on KWP atm, ta

                            KWP I think

                              Yes, KWP for fixtures, maybe Boly over all.

                          Morning guys, can I have your thoughts on my WC team please.
                          My main concern is only having one city player for their upcoming fixtures.

                          Pope
                          TAA Digne Maguire Soyuncu
                          Sterling Mane Martial Lanzini
                          Kane (c) Pukki
                          Button Cantwell Greenwood Lundstram

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            I like it, I'm going with KDB over Kane but can see the merits of picking Kane

                        4. panda07

                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          WC team, anything you'd change?

                          Adrian
                          VVD Digne Mina Laporte
                          Sterling Mane KDB Martial
                          Pukki Ings

                          Pope Lundstram Cantwell Wickham

                          1. Big Chris Wood
                            • 6 Years
                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            I would not bother with Adrian who's days are numbered. Go a 4m and upgrade Ings to a 6.5m

                          2. _figu

                            2 months, 21 days ago

                            That's a lot in defence. Would not double up Pool def. Drop Adrian to 4.0 and play Pope in every fixture.

                        5. Boo Ya Ka Sha
                          • 4 Years
                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          Rashford, Dunk, KWP, Kelly or Wickham, Laporte, Digne, Boly
