Scout Notes

Who are the best FPL captain candidates for Gameweek 13?

With the final international break of 2019 out of the way, Fantasy Premier League managers must once again make big decisions.

The most important one ahead of Gameweek 13 is, naturally, the captaincy.

In a season characterised by difficult debates for the armband, the latest one has followed suit.

As per usual, the Captain Sensible article is here to help you out by analysing the form of the candidates and the defensive capabilities of their upcoming opponents.

Captain Poll

Captain poll results as of Thursday lunch-time

For the second Gameweek in a row, Jamie Vardy (£9.6m) sits at the top of the captain poll results.

That should be no surprise to Fantasy managers, considering that Leicester’s number one centre-forward is in the form of his life.

Over the last four Gameweeks, Vardy has found the net six times and has not blanked since the Gameweek 8 trip to Liverpool.

He is fast becoming a very reliable option for the captaincy as his ownership (36%) continues to rise. 32.9% of our voters have backed him for the Gameweek 13 captaincy too.

This weekend pits him against a Brighton defence that has kept two clean sheets in their last four at the Amex Stadium, although captain Lewis Dunk (£4.6m) will be missing through suspension.

Adam Webster (£4.4m) is also touch and go to start for the Seagulls.

It looks as if the 14.7% who have voted for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) this weekend are relying on the fixture rather than the player.

Southampton’s 9-0 to defeat at home to Leicester in Gameweek 10 has very much cemented their place amongst the ‘captain against’ category.

However, Aubameyang himself has registered just one attacking return in his last five Premier League matches, scoring against Wolves in Gameweek 11.

Furthermore, Southampton have tended to struggle more in front of their own fans than any way from home recently.

They held Manchester City to just two goals in Gameweek 11 and even managed to earn a 1-1 draw at Wolves in Gameweek 9.

So it will be interesting to see whether they can prove to be frustrating on the road once again when they travel to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

Not far behind Aubameyang in the captain poll standings is Sadio Mané (£12.1m), who has the backing of 12.9% as of Thursday lunch-time.

The Liverpool man remains the top-scoring midfielder heading into Gameweek 13 after finding the net late-on against Manchester City last time out.

No Liverpool player has more attacking returns away from home than Mané this season (four) which arguably makes him the most likely to secure a breakthrough against Crystal Palace.

Furthermore, as things stand, he is much more likely to start at Selhurst Park than Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) who comes into Gameweek 13 as an injury doubt and backed by just 2.6% for the captaincy.

Despite a swathe of sales over the international break, a portion of Fantasy managers are keeping faith in Raheem Sterling (£12.0m).

He may have just one attacking return in his last four league starts at home but Chelsea come to the Etihad Stadium still without a clean sheet away from home this season.

That is enough to convince 10.3% of our voters to back Sterling for the captaincy in Gameweek 13.

Heading up what Joe and David would describe as ‘barrel scrapers’, is Harry Kane (£10.8m) who prepares to face West Ham on Saturday lunch-time.

Just 4.5% of you have decided he is the best captain this weekend but interest in his services has certainly increased somewhat with the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Spurs.

Kane does only have one attacking return in the last five Premier League matches but West Ham’s defensive form has been particularly poor of late.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m), Son Heung-min (£9.6m), Richarlison (£7.9m), Raúl Jiménez (£7.3m), Sergio Aguero (£12.0m), Sébastien Haller (£7.2m), Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) are the only other options selected by more than 1% of voters.

    this site is pretty conservative when it comes to something outside the template! So here goes a couple of thoughts:

    1 Why not take a punt at Richarlison (c) (in for mount) and then potentially sell him for pulisic or martial

    2. Spurs - general idea is wait and see, which in this case I probably agree. However, it is those decisions, for example get Kane / Son in that make you jump up the ranks!

    1. UTD - HATED, ADORED, BUT NE…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I’ve seen both those ideas on here a LOT the past couple of days. Many thinking the sane way

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not everyone, different manager different style of playing ... punt on Digne here ... idea (1) has been discussed here all week long 😉

    3. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Agree with second point
      First isn't good, Everton aren't setting the league on fire, plus richa is basically two transfers, being hard pressed for FTs, I'll pass

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        If you have 2 FT and no other pressing ... spend FT on Rich with potential good points should be ok ... and fun as well

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          This is a good point though

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 23 days ago

            I am on that position 😀

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Worth it then for sure

        2. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Would you do Sterling and traore to son and Martial/Maddison?

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 23 days ago

            I am not convinced by Son + Mou without seeing them play first. Sterling, I would stick!

            1. The Red Devil
              • 5 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              What to do with traore? Have a poor bench

              1. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                7 months, 23 days ago

                How much money ITB? I am tempted by McGinn for Monday evening entertainment whilst others behind the sofas 😀

                1. The Red Devil
                  • 5 Years
                  7 months, 23 days ago

                  0.3
                  Can afford trezeguet
                  But it feels like getting a similar kinda player, not too reliable

                  1. Magic Zico
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    7 months, 23 days ago

                    Yeah that price that's what you've got

                    1. The Red Devil
                      • 5 Years
                      7 months, 23 days ago

                      So I was wondering to spread it around, get Martial or Maddison & son as a punt

                      1. Magic Zico
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 1 Year
                        7 months, 23 days ago

                        Maddison and Martial ... ownership is still punt-ish

                      2. The Red Devil
                        • 5 Years
                        7 months, 23 days ago

                        Sterling and traore to Martial and Maddison?

              2. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Or Trezeguet ... but less nailed

        3. andres
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          1 FT 🙂 but I like to take an occasional risk.. This weeks captain choices aren't great so feel like it will be a low score unless you spicy things up a little

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Why not if that's your style of playing just don't impose to other managers 😀 they will hunt you down ...

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      1. Short sighted.
      2. Is Mourinho now an attacking coach or did I miss something?

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        you can get a defender in as well. Also the fact that he always relies on a striker to get the goals. has to be kane?

        1. andres
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          surely alderweireld becomes an option?

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Possibly. But that wasn’t point 2 🙂 GL

            1. andres
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Kane was an example 😉 but you are right my friend!

              In any case I would think from the new Tot we could be getting a defender + kane.

    5. Daniel S.
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Looks like best differential strategy is to have as much as possible from the template. Since no one has the full combo actually

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        yeah, that is kind of true but it's boring.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Big this!

    6. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I’ve thought about this since last week r.e. An armband punt on Richarlison.....I accept the negative points on the Brazilian around Everton’s form and it being 2 transfers but the up side of a brace from a massive differential Captain is certainly intriguing. With my O/R quite high I’m tempted to give it a go to push into the top 5 k.

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        how would you plan it? who are you selling / getting in later?

        1. maglia rosa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Looks like Aguero our for either Jiminez (not sure on him though) and either Cantwell/Yarmolenko our for Richa then would be either Maddison or Pulisic in for Richa. Tough one buddy.

          1. andres
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            aguero will score this GW (if he plays...) but I get your point. He has to go as this rotation is unsustainable.

            would you play 4 or 5 mids?

            1. maglia rosa
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Would be 4-4-2 if I didn’t bring in Jiminez. 3-4-3 if it was a cheap bench striker. I hear ya on Aguero Andres for sure but as you say the rotation with great mid options are there to get.

                Oooops other way round 😆

                  Ha I’ve been up for 24 hours and have my 4 year old wanting to play. 3-4-3 with Jiminez

                    Wow, 24h maraton! your kid might be right, though I am a bit biased as a jimenez owner. He is good long term and over Xmas which is important at this point,

                      Yup the points made on Jiminez for the blank g/w on the Scoutcast make sense for sure

        Mount ➡ Richa
        Followed by
        Richa ➡ Pulisic
        Looks like it could work. Ballsey with Richa though 😉

      Agreed and good points that have me thinking thanks..

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I am pretty sure Mou will make an impact. Tot have a very good squad.

    9. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I've brought in Aubameyang, Richarlison and Soyuncu for a -8 (Pukki, Sterling and Otamendi outgoing).

      Richarlison(vc) at the moment - can't look past Vardy.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Wow, what a move ...

      2. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Vardy (c) at the moment. If I don't pull the trigger on Richarlison it stays that way.

    10. Jimmy Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Agree with both of these. I'm on a WC and have brought in Richarlison. Doubt I'll captain him but I plan to bring in Pulisic for GW14. Those who hopped on to Vardy before the Burnley game reaped the rewards. If Kane and/or Son hit form, those who go for them early on will be generously rewarded.

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        exactly! putting your money on kane?

    11. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I've been on here for the last few hours really and have seen those moves mentioned.

      And that's only for today.

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        yeah, I am not putting something new here. My point was more on the advice - it is likely to be "save", "hold", "wait and see"

        and we never do a post audit after the gameweek 🙂

  2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Doing KDB & Connolly ➡️ Tielemans & Jimenez (-4)

    Pope
    TAA - Lundy - Soy
    Mane - Sterling - Mount - Tielemans
    Vardy - Abraham - Jimenez

    (4.0 - Rico - Cantwell - Tomori)
    1ft & 1.6m

    Will have money to do Sterling to Salah & Mount to Pulisic/Martial over the next couple of gameweeks.

    Thoughts?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Can’t you just save and play Rico and Kev. Go with 2FTs next week?

  3. Feed tha Sheep
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    First to 5 please?
    Agureo & CHO> up to 17.9? (Have Mane, KDB, Vardy & Abraham)

    A. Kane/Auba & Tielemans
    B. Jimi & Maddison (Allowing Traore > Martial/Pulisic next week)
    C. Other (maybe a single transfer and save?)

    1. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Rashford + Martial maybe?

      1. Feed tha Sheep
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Wouldn’t mind one but don’t think I would want to double up on United forwards. Martial def looks a good option

      B

  4. Legohair
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    I need some advice here

    Pope
    TAA-Souyncu-Chambers-Lundy
    Salah-Sterling-KDB-Mount
    Vardy-Abraham

    Cantwell, Greenwood, Lascelles

    2 FT

    Which one???

    A. Salah&Lascelles to Mane&Tomori
    B. Sterling&Greenwood to Maddy&Jimenez

    1. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      A, easily A.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Sadio

    3. Legohair

      Thanks

    4. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Just Salah>Mane? Sort Lascelles later?

      1. Legohair
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        That's another option yes, just
        i have exact money to do those moves

  5. Drogba Legend
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Pope
    TAA - Azpi - Lundy
    Mane (C) - KDB - Mount - James
    Vardy - Jimenez - Tammy

    Button - Rico - Cantwell - Ota

    2FT, thoughts?

    1) Ota is definitely going to any defender and starting over Azpi
    2) Could hold 2FT or upgrade James > Martial/Maddison or Cantwell > 7.0 mid or less.

    1. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Ota to Guilbert and save?

  6. Klip Klopp
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Salah + Yarmelenko —> Mane + Tielemens for -4?

    -4 might be worth it to gaurentee a liverpool attacker plays

      For free I'd say yes. Hit.. possibly still yes.

      Gut telling me Yarmo hauls , but he's my 5th mid so easy benching going forward
      So yeah I would

    My genuine feeling is that the Salah injury is being slightly overplayed.
    Hearing Klopp say he needs to see today's session before making a decision is one thing, but he also said if that wasn't the case he wouldn't have said if he was not available anyway.

    I believe Salah and Robbo will both play. After a 2 week rest I'm sure they'll both want to play and Klopp could easily take Salah off after an hour or so to keep him fresh and match fit. These feelings are the reason why I won't be losing points to move Mo on.

    I'm also hoping the Team News lineup for Arsenal is spot on. Auba and Lacca should be up top in a 2 every week. They love each other more than Yorke and Cole did. Auba (C) and out

        Thank you mate. You too. I also own Son so i'm very intrigued as to how this weekend will play out

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Will keep a keen eye on how Jose uses Son in the West Ham game. If he is stationed very wide and doing a lot of defensive work I will be prepared to lose him next GW.

    3. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I agree, just caught up on all the news, i reckon by the sounds of it Mo will start bit may come off after an hour minimum at least.

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years

      Announcing Salah is out will get all the headlines and give the opposition a mental boost. I think Klopp has played it well. Wouldn’t be surprised with a Salah benching to ease him in

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I also wouldn't mind as long as he was in the squad. I remember when he was rested against Stoke and came on to score a brace in 10 mins or so. I'm sure PVA will be hoping Salah doesn't make it

      2. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        nah he’d either start and come off early imo

    5. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Or he could start him on the bench. The fact he did not train with the rest of the squad yesterday has to be a concern. Him and Robbo were left to jog around when the serious stuff started , no ?

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I don't read too much into that mate. I believe today's session is where it would have got serious when it came to decisions. The whole point of it is to keep the opposition guessing I suppose

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yeah maybe , still a maybe though , tough but gl

            Haha I know mate. I've got a bench to cover the worst case scenarios so it wouldn't be the end of my week. Good luck pal

  8. FDMS All Starz

    Who would you cap out of this lot?

    A) Sterling

    B) Auba

    C) Kdb

    D) Vardy

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      B

    2. Pep Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      B - It's my choice this week

  9. marcus2704

    7 months, 23 days ago

    I have a midfield of Salah, Mane, KDB, Pulisic and Maddison.

    I feel I should transfer Salah out for 1 gameweek without losing points or value, that means I can get any other midfielder in his place. Currently my best thinking is to get Sterling in, what do you guys think? Seems to me a lot of you are transferring him out is why I ask 🙂

    1. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not worth all the trouble in my opinion in a GW where it looks to be rather uninspired anyway, and losing him for Sterling of all people is a no go for me. Others will disagree there but i’m glad i ditched him anyway.

      1. marcus2704
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        My worry is that Pulisic doesnt play, and I really doubt Salah will either, in which case my bench of Tomori, Kelly and Greenwood woudl have to be utilized..

        1. JustPark
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 22 days ago

          Pulisic is in contention. CHO not so much.
          Salah will play I think. His minutes will be managed.

    2. Pep Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      My advice is keep. It's getting to the point where Salah is going to be deemed a differential. I also believe he will start

  10. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Have traore & Jimenez
    Bench- diop Hanley nakamba

    1 ft & 0.3

    Sterling and traore to son and Martial/Maddison? (-4)

  11. AC Yew
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Mane or Vardy for Captain?

    1. Arteta
      • 4 Years

      Do they know something we don't?

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA

    That was a long boring IB wasn’t it! Bring on the PL! Good luck all 🙂

  13. Azathoth

    Right now i am on (K)DB and (V)ardy...Yes or vice versa?

    1. DF
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Vv

    2. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 22 days ago

      I'm not even sure which is which.

  14. The Rock
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Gazzaniga
    Soyuncu, Rico, Janmaat
    Sterling, KDB, Mount, Maddison
    Abraham, Auba, Vardy
    Pope, Lundstram, Tomori, Dendoncker

    2 FT. 0.5 in the bank.

    I'm struggling with transfers this week. Don't want to lose Sterling for Mane this week because i can see him doing well. Any suggestions?

    Also think i will captain Auba as a differential.

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Nice line up Rock agree Auba Cpt
      But with no Pool I would start working to get Mane and TAA next week
      Your'e starting Gazz so downgrade Pope to a 4 to get the ball rolling
      Next gw lose a MC mid ad make decision from there

      1. The Rock
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 22 days ago

        Thanks Debauchy.we are on the same page regarding Mane and TAA. And good to hear Auba isn't crazy. I'm quite surprised there isn't more talk about him as captain, poor stats i know.

  15. fatty100kg

    Any ideas how to improve? 1FT.

    Pope, Button
    Robertson, TAA, Sounchy, Lundstram, Tomori

    Rashford, Vardy, Abraham

        Thanks for comment.

        Long term pretty in love with my team but Martial/Rashford huge gamble which i feel i have to take as a united fan 🙂 tempted also with a free hit on gw18.

  16. Zlatanzo

    Is Alzate the best 4.5 midfield option?

  17. tim_mullaney3
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Thoughts on getting John McGinn in as a differential for this week. Would have to take a hit tho

  19. Steirish

    Play pope or Gaz?

  20. HD7
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    A) Mount to Richa Captaib as a GW punt (plays Norwich) and then get Pulisic
    B) Just get Pulisic
    C) Save and play Rico instead of Mount (4-3-3)
    D) Save and play Mount

  21. stu92

    Ryan
    Robbo* - VVD - Lundstram - Chilwell
    Salah* - KDB - Maddison - McGinn
    Abraham - Vardy
    (Button - Tomori - Hayden - Connolly*)

    A) risk Robbo & Salah being injured and play Tomori & Hayden from the bench
    B) do Salah > Mané for -4

    The info/mgr talk out there on Jimenez and Pulisic starting doesnt seem concrete does it?

  24. yer old da
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Sometimes you over think these things. Was tempted by Mane as captain, then Sterling against a leaky Chelsea away defence, but if in doubt captain the man with form on his side and form of 11.5 makes it a no-brainer. #vardyparty

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      This season whatever you pick as captain has been a failure 😉 ... so yes do not overthink ...

  25. F4L
    • 5 Years

    Do you think Lampard will play James at RB against City?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Azpi fit? May go for the experience ...

      1. F4L
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        im guessing Azpi will be a lock, its just whether he's starting LB or RB.

        Fancy a Mahrez punt if he's up against Emerson

  26. Zlatanzo
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Is Pope --> Gazzaniga this week ignorant considering I don't own Vardy? Will leave me with 2 FTs for next week.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not liking Vardy?

  27. Hot Toddy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    If Salah doesn't start I get Dendoncker off the bench. That's quite the downgrade haha.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Well if he did not start and then be cameo ... 1pt. Dendoncker could get 3pts.

      1. Hot Toddy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Haha fair point.

      2. JustPark
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 22 days ago

        Dendo could get 2pts or less, Salah could score a brace even from bench.

  28. Jimmy Boy

    Captain out of this lot:
    A) Auba (SOU)
    B) Richarlison (NOR)
    C) Mane (cry)

    Currently on Auba, hasn't switched from him since the start of the IB

    1. Jullepuu

      I would just do Salah to Mane. It will be nice to have 2 transfers next week.
