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.

    Hi everyone,

    who to start with?

    A) King
    B) Diop

    1. Sloopy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      In doubt play the attacker!

      1. Magic Zico

    3. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      West ham to concede after 20 minutes, so either having 20 minutes of fun and hope or wait til sunday and pray for en an Ederrson howler (making a pen). Maybe King, if it were a tiny bit better fixture for the defender i would play defender but West ham never has great fixtures from a defensive pov.

  2. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 8 hours ago

    My WC team:

    ______
    ______ - AWB - Digne - ______
    KDB - Sterling - Mane - Martial
    Pukki - Jota

    4.0 - Lundstram - Cantwell - Wickham

    It all comes down to this!

    A. Ederson + TAA + Soyunchu (3way rotation between Soyunchu, Lund and Cantwell)
    or
    B. Pope + VVD + Laporte

    Help a friend out! Cheers!

    Reckon KDB will rise before he plays on Sunday?

    1. Gudjohnsen

      Not likely

    2. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Unlikely, imo. Needs to be above 95 now.

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years

        Okay cheers Doos

    3. fr3d

      Very likely

    4. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      will be close tonight i guess but market is volatile and i think it depends also on how other players perform.

  4. Typo
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 8 hours ago

    Keep coming back to this team. Is it stupid?
    If/when Salah gets essential, I can downgrade Kane/firmino to him with a maximum of a -4

    Pope
    Mina, awb, zinc
    Sterling, kdb, martial, mount
    Kane(C), Firmino, Pukki

    Button, cantwell, lundstram, kelly

    Please rate it. The defence is a bit iffy, but i reckon it can hold The line. Nice fixtures

    1. Typo
      • 6 Years

      Anyone?

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Yes it looks good. I was on something similar but I’ve moved away from Bobby and Martial > Mane and 4.5m

        1. Typo
          • 6 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          Interesting, thank you. Just cant shake Martial, Firmino might burn me, but then I atleast have some lfc attack cover..

    2. *sigh*
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Rather have a Pool defender in 4-4-2 than Firmino and don't trust Mount but rest looks fine.

      1. Typo
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Thank you. Pool defence is tempting because of ownership, but they have been very shaky lately.. got a couple of hours to contemplate.

        Maybe Klopp will give us an update on allison in his presser

    3. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Looks ok. No mane/Salah is a risk, as is no pool defence, but cant have them all.

      1. Typo
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        True, thanks. Have not decided yet. Pretty sure Im going without pool defence. But mane/salah is more scary to drop

    4. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Just Firmino, I don’t like it..

      1. Typo
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        I feel you man. Numbers are good, some weeks punt I guess

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Good team, a bit worry underestimating Pool. If they wracked havoc it’s difficult to bring in without hits ...

      1. Typo
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 6 hours ago

        Yes, I kinda agree. Not easy this

    6. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      looks good

      firmino is underrated, got 13 points which should have been higher. And he gets to shoot more, and while he will not probabbly match the two midfielders in points total there is one significant difference this year than seasons before. Firmino is now significantly cheaper than his team-mates, in which he has not been before, Salah wonder season he was about same price and Mané were priced similar last year. Those two have gone up, so in my view it change things abit. Wether to have him as the lone Liv attacker is debatable due to cap thing perhaps. Firmino will have his best season FPL wise this season barring injury.

      While i understand the cap debate i think there is one perhaps not mentioned so often, Firmino tends to get bonus whenever he is delivering, while Salah and to a certain extent Mané don´t. Not that explosive though.

      1. Typo

        Thank you. Good points

  5. doowral
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 7 hours ago

    On a wc... good to go?

    Pope/Button
    KWP/Digne/Soyu/Zinch/Lund
    Mane/Sterling/KDB/Martial/McGinn
    Rash/Pukki/Martinelli

    I’ve hovered between one alternative and that’s:

    Kane/Lanzini/Mount/AWB instead of Mane/KWP/McGinn/Pukki, however I think that they will all score similar bar Pukki being a stronger score we than Mount in the long term, so why I went Mané instead of Kane. Thoughts?

    1. PAL
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      I understand the logic behind your picks and would stick with the team you posted. I think that it's more important to have Salah/Mane than Kane.

      1. doowral
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Agree. Haven't been impressed by Salah's underlying stats and Mane gets the nod as that £1m difference is crucial to the rest of the team. Whilst I think Kane may hurt me this week, I think the money goes a lot further when you're looking at strikers and some budget mids are decent picks to give it balance. The only thing I'd prefer is a Man U defender instead of KWP, however budget dictates.

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Greenwood over martinelli as the latter will get more minutes (1pointers rather than 0)

    3. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Every little helps

      1. doowral
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Understand where you're coming from with that, the only thing holding me back is with Rash & Martial, the move I'd make if Zinch got dropped would be to AWB so need to keep a Man U spot for that. With two decent bench options he'd always be 3rd for me.

  6. Gudjohnsen
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 7 hours ago

    Why do I think Kane (C) will troll me but at the same time I just can't captain someone else?

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Why would captain 11M defensive mid? Might get a pen but nothing more.

      Sterling should be everyones default captain next 4 gws

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        You're right. This will end in tears.

      2. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        That's weird. Could've sworn he's scored twice already

    2. altan8797
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      cuz if he trolls you, he trolls a lot of people and you would just feel furious with him. If you captain someone else and he hauls, well then you will just feel like an idiot.

  7. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 7 hours ago

    Until Mendy is back. Who is best ManC def in terms of baps and goal threat? Walker?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Yeah probably.

    2. Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Surely a 60odd Million Cancelo isnt out there to just warm the bench?

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        60 million is the new 10M. They afford to bench him whole season

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          More expensive than Wan Bissaka 45 or 55M?

      2. Bird Raymond
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        They effectively paid £34m to upgrade from Danilo. Chicken feed for City.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Ederson

    4. PAL
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Probably. I couldn't afford him so I have OZ.

  8. Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    25 days, 7 hours ago

    Is there a better 4.5m def than Soyuncu? Doesn't seem to be much on offer but I think he's probably the most likely to get a few clean sheets and nailed. Will be mostly on bench.

    1. Flaming Flamingo
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Montoya is easily the best 4.5, imo.

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Maybe more attacking but Brighton probably won't come close to Leicester for clean sheets.

        1. Flaming Flamingo
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          I think they might. Very small sample size of course, but Brighton have the lowest xG conceded in the league so far which is encouraging. I don't particularly trust Leicester defensively either, I don't rate Schmeichel very highly and can see them conceding goals even if their defensive stats are solid (as has been the case in the past).

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Isn't he going to be threatened by Guilbert?

          1. FOO FIGHTER
              25 days, 7 hours ago

              Problem is when you have Mcginn. Crazy to double up. Why I got rid of Heaton.

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        He's my choice, and only to play in his bast weeks. But there are options with nice fixtures at Brighton, Hammers and maybe Burnley too.

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

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Yes, been training all week and ready for this weekend

        1. Ruinenlust
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          Play king or Robinson?

          1. MASTER ROSHI
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            25 days, 7 hours ago

            I'd go robinson, King isn't getting more than 2 points

      2. BoomXhakaLaca1

    4. Gearoid
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Paid little attention to GW1 and GW2 price rise/falls until last night and regret it. 2 FT, 0 ITB and holding WC.

      Ederson
      TAA Digne VVD
      Dendo Salah Martial Perez Sterling (c)
      Wilson Jota
      Button Diop Greenwood Rico

      1. Ederson to Pope or
      2. TAA to AWB
      to fund Perez, Wilson to Cantwell, Kane.

      Would mean always playing one of Cantwell and Dendo.

    5. Jet5605
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Hey guys, 1 FT and 1.5 ITB. Was thinking of Salah > Mane this week so that I can upgrade Siggie > KDB next week.

      A Salah > Mane
      B Save as A is too sideways

      Heaton
      AWB / Digne / Zin / Lund
      Salah / Sterling / Siggie / Martial
      Vardy / King

      Pope / Dendonck / Greenwood / Rico

      1. MASTER ROSHI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    6. kelvint93
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Pick either option

      A) transfer out Jota for pukki and play pukki as lone striker
      B) transfer out king for pukki and play pukki and Jota up front

      Cheers

      1. Sloopy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        B. Easy!

      2. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 6 Years

        Depends on your team. But B more so

    7. MFPL
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Thoughts please?

      Pope
      AWB Mina Dunk
      Sterling Mane KDB Mount
      Kane Pukki Barnes

      Bench: Button Kelly Lundstram Cantwell

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Hmm, kinda missing pool defence. City and/or Pool cleanies will have you at immediate disadvantage. I would probably downgrade Barnes and get one of them in. (doesn't have good fixtures until a couple of gameweeks anyways)

    8. thomashl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 7 hours ago

      Final WC:

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

      GtG?

      1. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Only "issue" is KWP. Expecting a CS this week, but rough match next – hard to find a 4.5 with good fixtures in both games?

        Current plan is to keep him and save FT next week, maybe go Montoya after that (Brighton have City next week so expecting a hammering)

      2. gomenor
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Have about the same, though I prefer rash/de bruyne over Kane/mcginn

        1. thomashl
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          Cheers. Yeah, I was 50/50 between this and that setup – the decision was made permanent by rash's 0.1 rise last night.

          Fingers crossed! As a united fan I'll be happy either way 🙂

          1. gomenor
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 5 hours ago

            Maybe if you do Digne to Mina it will be possible?
            Either way, both ways seem good!

          Yeah, got rid of Greenwood in order to swap Kane for Rashie if he fluffs his lines spectacularly

      Robertson, Moura, king out

              I find that rarely works out and just leads to -4 and -8 hits down the line when rest of the team needs fixing. Hurts even more when the expected 13x2 point banker turns into a blank!

      Who do you think will find form and step up to score big this GW, and why?

      Maybe someone who hasn't had a double digit score in a while, who has a series of no attacking returns, or has very low ownership.

      Do you think it will be an already-established name in many of our sides or someone who is a major differential?

      Have you seen something in a someone's play or in their stats to make you think they could be ready for a breakout GW?

          I really hope so, taken a -0.1 on the chin as I'm convinced he can come good. The signs in the Chelsea game were positive, lets hope The Blades go for it and leave space behind their overlapping centre backs!

            Unfortunately, Sheff U were the most solid defensive team in the Championship last year, and one of the strongest in the first two weeks of the season.

            There's a more defensive emphasis for them in the top division too, and Leicester's attack have hardly set the world alight in the first couple of weeks.

            There is no space behind the centre backs because the players rotate positionally.

            1. Mingo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              25 days, 3 hours ago

              That's what worries me to be honest, Sheffield United might provide a lot of attacking disappointment for players this season. I'm prepared to wait and see for this game, possibly next week as well if it looks like Leicester are getting it together. If not then I'm going to be left behind and looking to the next curve beyond Pukki, Martial & KDB.

          His accuracy has been off first 2 games, but the chances were there, he’s close to the top of every midfielder table except “on target”. Playing a very weak defence.

          Conclusions in the article yesterday are upside down.

          Hopefully Siggie can collect some points too.

          I've asked this a few times now but some last opinions please?

          Pull the trigger on this?

          Lucas + TAA/Robbo ------> KDB + AWB (-4)

          Or wait a week and do it for free?

            Wait.

            If you're 100% sure those are moves you are going to want to make next week then it might be worth doing it now. Otherwise, I'd wait.

              25 days, 7 hours ago

              Do you think the first two outscore the other 2 by 4 points this week?

                • 3 Years
                25 days, 7 hours ago

                Hard to say. Gun to my head I'd probably say no.

          2 FT.

          0.0 in Bank

          a) Sterling, Vardy -> Kane, KDB
          b) Vardy -> Rashford
          c) Vardy, King -> Rashford, Jota
          d) keep Vardy, King, Murray

          Barkley/King > Ceballos/Pukki for exact money?

            2 players on nearly everyone’s shopping list, so yes.

          WC - Who to captain???

          Pope
          Digne - AWB - Zinchenko
          Mount - Martial - KDB - Sterling
          Kane - Pukki - Barnes

          VVD - Lund - Cantwell

          1. _figu
            • 2 Years

            Wouldn't go for Kane unless you captain him. Rather have Salah/Mane.

            Surely need to play VVD over Barnes

        • lufcMOT
          • 8 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          Siggy to Martial, yay or nay

        • YoungPretender
          • 4 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          GTG?

          Pope
          VVD Digne Zinchenko Montoya
          Salah Sterling(C) Perez KDB
          Pukki Jota

          Button Lundstram Dendonker Greenwood

          Worth doing Perez > Martial (-4) or wait?

          1. FOO FIGHTER
              25 days, 7 hours ago

              Keep Perez. Not worth -4 for Martial if he ain't had any bonus points yet.

              If you did not have KDB then -4 for him would not be as risky.

              You have a spine of Sslah, Sterling and KDB.
