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.

    Please someone talk me out of this...

    Salah & King > KDB & Bobby (-4)

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Salah on pens, some free kicks and corners. Ideally you would want him over a long term.

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Second one.
      The reason I’m not going Salah/Mane.
      You end up with some crap up front...

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        5 months, 4 days ago

        Does not make sense this because some have Kane with a fodder defence.

        Guess it comes down to whether you want a loaded midfield with Salah, KDB and Sterling, strong defence and budget forwards.

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          Agreed

        2. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          I have pretty much all in my w/c team by sacrificing Mané/Salah...
          Very easy to change if it doesn’t work out.

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      For this Gw, we can guess Salah and Kev will score similarly. Bobby would have to score over 6 points to justify the hit. The odds are against that. In the longer term the latter combo might outscore the former, but in that case you can do the second transfer next week without the hit. so Salah>Kev, for now, would be sufficient.

    4. Blanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      That is pretty gross to me. Big no.

    5. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Thanks all. On balance I think it's a hold!

    6. Freddiebell

  2. Galza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    5 months, 4 days ago

    If Son plays, does it not give Kane even more potential to score points?
    He is a very good passer of ball.
    Only 1 point difference from an assist to a goal for a forward...

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah agreed. I'm a Kane owner (not captainer yet) and hope Son plays

    2. Oi! Shadders!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I can't recall ever seeing him pass.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        He’s got a great pass in him.
        Sprays it about quite often...

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Yes, it does, I think you are right. I don’t have the data in front of me but I seem to remember when they both play, it helps Kane rather than hinders him.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        That’s what I thought. Ty

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I think Kane will have a shoot on sight policy this weekend. He will be smarting from not winning the golden boot the last two seasons and will see this as a good opportunity to put himself in the early reckoning.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        I hope so.

    5. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      But from my memories of last season when son plays, Kane is a little deeper allowing the likes of son to make runs past him?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        This Gw, I think you have to take the Lolcastle effect into account. It'll be a duck shoot for Kane.
        Longer term, it might be trickier to decide which of the 2 to have.

        1. Sloopy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          This

      2. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        Kind of what I was eluding too.
        Hopefully it won’t affect his goal output as much this season and he can assist Son a bit more...

      3. FOO FIGHTER
        5 months, 4 days ago

        And there is also the Erikson factor when it comes to Kane. Erikson not a happy chap.

  3. ZeBestee
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Who is Chelsea's best and most nailed attacker to have?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      None really - RLC, CHO and Willian still to return

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        Do you think Mount looks like he can be Lampard's favourite? Or others can come anytime?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          I brought Mount in as I think he has nudged ahead of Barkley (who wasn't brought on with Chelsea chasing the win). He has played 90 mins twice, presses high up the pitch, takes a lot of shots, is on set pieces and has a couple of promising fixtures. At 6.1 you can't expect too much but the signs look promising.

        2. RubeRx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          Definitely Lampards favorite

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Probably Pedro at this stage? Watching brief for now though, if you ask me

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

    Last question this time. Trossard or Mount?

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Tross.

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

        why's that?

        1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          Looks a fine player in an improved team this year.
          Fancy them to thump the Saints defence this week.
          Lamps out by Xmas!

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Mount - Trossard has a tough fixture next GW where he may be benched

    3. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I'm going with Tross on WC
      Planning to move Tross out next GW for Mount/Ceballos

    4. Double Treble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Get both

  5. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    My WC team:

    Ederson
    TAA - AWB - Digne - Soyuncu
    KDB - Sterling - Mane - Martial
    Pukki - Jota

    4.0 - Lundstram - Cantwell - Greenwood

    1. Going Ederson over Pope as I cant find any other City def apart from Laporte(cant afford) who's nailed.
    2. I'll be having a three-way rotation between Soyuncu, Lund and Cantwell based on fixtures.
    3. Barnes will come in for Jota in gw5.
    4. I'm open to changing Soyuncu to any other better 4.5m def.

    Thoughts? Any inputs on this team?

    1. *sigh*
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Thought about it tbh especially with Robbo looking likely to drop but trying to minimise transfers from now on and just wouldn’t be happy without Robertson.

        Everyone seems to be getting AWB. Maguire can get better attacking returns as he’s good on set pieces. One goal and everyone will be getting him. But yes AWB has looked quality so far

  12. Gringo Kid

    1. Ynwalfc

      get Jota or Barnes up front and get a city defender maybe Zinchenko

    2. Kiwi Don

      Surely have to captain Kane over Sterling. Apart from that looks good.

          I like to spread the risk around 🙂

          Which doesn't explain why I went for Pool def double up from the start against my own gut feeling... thought of AWB from the start, but went Robbo + VvD out of fear.

          Lesson: don't play out of fear

    KANE-gate

    Isn't all this talk about "Kane dropping deep", "Kane hasn't impressed" just a classic overthinking trap that experienced fantasy managers do (overmanagement), and a typical occasion for the casuals to gain points on "our" behalf?

    At the same time, I feel it's a bit risky to own him as well... means no KdB

      We are probably all overthinking it this week, suspect there won't be much between the scores of Sterling, Kane/Son with KDB and Salah/Mané not far behind. As long as you have three of the aforementioned players you should be on for a good score this GW.

        5 months, 4 days ago

        Hoorah, some common sense at last...………….well done fella.

        Just play the player with the lowest risk of getting benched

        5 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers. Exactly what I want to hear, mate! Haha.

        Great, settled on this wildcard:

        Pope
        AWB VvD Digne KWP
        Salah Sterling McGinn Martial
        Kane Pukki
        (Button - Lundstram Dendo Wickham) 0.2itb

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Tend to agree. In the cases of both Kane and Kevin, the 'dropping deep' moniker is more distracting than helpful.

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah. And besides – the Kane we saw against Villa is the Kane we now. Might do nothing for 88 mins and then get a brace. Price rices made me stick to my WC plan with Kane, was on the verge of changing him to rashford + kdb but 0.1 short. All for the better – now the choice is made 🙂 (have martial anyways)

    3. Bird Raymond
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Absolutely, when I first started playing the game Kane captain at home to a de facto Championship side would have been a no-brainer. As it is I don't even own him!

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        Right! Now that I have him in, bring the blanks

  19. damiang2233
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Ndombele or Ceballas worth a punt or too early yet?

    1. thomashl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I have McGinn in that price bracket, happy with that. Monitoring ceb

      1. damiang2233
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        Have Hourichane but taking him out now. Both of above playing with better teams too

    2. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I want both. Currently have NDombele and he’s doing well so far. Ceballos was awesome on the weekend

    3. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Too early for me and not Ndombele imo

  20. ElliotJHP
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    The big WC question I can't settle on.

    Mane and Laporte or Salah and Zinc?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      3 of those 4 are nailed until your next WC; only Zinc isn't.

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Has to mane Laporte

  21. Yordan Letchkov
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Play one:

    Cathcart (WHU)
    Dendoncker (BUR)
    Diop (wat)

    Thanks

    1. FFFoxy
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Cathcart

      1. FFFoxy
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        West Ham didn’t look like scoring at Brighton, but Watford also have been blunt too + without deeney. So diop close by

  22. Mikei
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Hello,
    too weak defence or not?

    Pope
    Zinchenko Dunk Lundstram
    Martial Salah Sterling KdB Ceballos
    Kane Pukki

    Button Kelly Rico Greenwood

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Kelly and Rico both are dodgy picks imo and Zinchenko could be aswell within next month. I'd make some changes there

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      For me, yes.

    3. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Awesome team. Bench is a bit weak but you can’t have everything.

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Nice starting 11

  23. No Salah
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Please suggest

    Took a -4 to get Kane, kdb and Rashford.

    Playing 532 this week

    Heaton
    VVD Robbo Digne Zinchenko Lundstram
    Pérez Sterling (vc) KDB
    Kane (c) Rashford

    Dedonker Norwood Greenwood

    Would you change the line up or bench order?

    1. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      5-3-2 never seems to work out for me. The bigger scorers are normally in midfield and attack. Downgrade Robbo to KWP and get Pukki up front who’s on fire at the moment

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Perez is stinking your team

  24. Little Frank
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Play one of:
    a. Dunk (SOU)
    b. Lundstram (LEI)
    c. Soyucu (shu)

    Bookies odds of a clean sheet suggest c but I'm not so sure ...

  25. Jones Kusi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Button Heaton
    Digne Robertson VVD Montoya Kelly
    Sterling Salah Fraser Siggy Dendoncker
    Deulofeu Wilson Greenwood

    Would you WC? I’ve already done Fraser, Siggy, Wilson > McGinn, KDB, Pukki for -4.

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      So if you've done them why post the old team? No Wc but you got to get rid of deulo.

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Horrible team

    3. thomashl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I don't know, it seems a bit late to do the wc now if you've missed a lot of the price rises so far.

  26. Forever In Our Shadow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Morning Guys. Ok Wc is this;

    Pope (Button)
    Digne VVD AWB (Lundo Kelly)
    Mane Sterling Martial Cantwell Mount
    Kane Pukki (Martinelli) 1.4ITB

    Cant lose Kane for that Newcastle
    game. Mount is a one week punt. Cant go any longer than this week without KDB.

    Next week will do Kane / Mount to KDB / Rashford.

    What do we think?

    1. *sigh*
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Wouldn't have two 4.0m players or a one week punt on a wildcard personally. Could work though.

  27. YEAH PITCH!
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Play

    A) Coleman away
    B) Lundstram home

    1. Little Frank
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Coleman

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Not even close. Coleman.

      1. YEAH PITCH!

        Thanks both.

    Spurs Vs Newcastle last 6 meetings aggregate score; 8:8.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Is that at all relevant though?

      Last 6 and now: Poch
      Last 6: Benitez
      Now: Bruce

      1. Make America Greta Again

        I've Sir Harry but getting itchy feet. Raheem is closing the gap in the poll.

    3. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I will tale a Kane hatty to make it 11:8

    4. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years

      Love these sort of irrelevant cherry picked stats 🙂

      1. Make America Greta Again
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 4 days ago

        There's a Newcastle 5:1 win in there!

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 4 days ago

          Imagine that score this week!

          1. Make America Greta Again
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 4 days ago

            Better chance of Mikey Cyrus turning up at my door with her girlfriend! In truth, Spurs should smash Newcastle. Harry looks like he wants 40 league goals.

  29. sumatera

    Please let me know your thoughts

    A) Mount + 4.5 striker bench fodder

    Or

    B) Pukki + Can't sell

    ?
    Thanks

    Morning all, couple of quick questions

    1) Who to start from Pope (wol) or Heaton (EVE)
    - Villa playing at home but everton are the better team
    - wolves played last night but playing at home

    2) Who to start from VVD (ARS) or King (MCI)
    - Already have TAA so doubling up on defence against arsenal seems odd
    - King on set pieces so always a chance of a pen

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Pope & Virg.

    2. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 days ago

      I'd probably play Heaton and VvD

    3. unitednations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Heaton vs. Pope is a tough one
