Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captains for Gameweek 14?

Leicester and Liverpool options go head-to-head for the captaincy this weekend.

They both face favourable home fixtures in Gameweek 14 as Everton and Brighton come to the King Power Stadium and Anfield respectively.

To help you make the tough decision we’ve got another edition of Captain Sensible.

As ever, we’ll go through the underlying statistics for each of the candidates and compare them against the defensive data of their upcoming opponents.

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

Captain Poll

For the third Gameweek in a row, Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) is the most popular captain option.

Ahead of a home meeting with Everton, 29.9% of the voters have leant their backing to the Leicester City forward.

It’s not hard to understand why. Over the last five Gameweeks, Vardy has been remarkably reliable, scoring seven times during that period.

Furthermore, since Gameweek 4, he has registered just one blank at the King Power Stadium, registering 9.6 points per game there between then and now.

Meanwhile, Everton are without a clean sheet away from home since Gameweek 1 and are potentially about to lose manager Marco Silva to the sack.

Not far behind Vardy in the poll is Sadio Mané (£12.2m), who has a 24.8% share of the votes as of Thursday lunch-time.

The Liverpool man and his colleagues will host a travel-sick Brighton side on Saturday afternoon, who have conceded an average of 2.3 goals per game in their last three away matches.

Meanwhile, Mané himself is on an encouraging run of form at Anfield. He has registered an attacking return there for the last four Premier League matches in a row and you have to go back to Gameweek 3 for the last time he blanked in Merseyside this season.

A long way off in third place is Raheem Sterling (£12.0m), backed by just 6.6% of the voters in the poll.

Arguably, the Manchester City man was unfortunate not to get his eighth league goal of the campaign against Chelsea after a controversial VAR call, and there are clearly some Fantasy managers left who believe he has more to deliver.

This week it’s a trip to Newcastle which is perhaps cause for patience. The Magpies have conceded at least twice in three of their last four matches although they have been much harder to beat at home.

In front of their own fans, only Leicester (three) have conceded fewer goals than Newcastle this season (four).

Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) is currently fourth in the poll with a 6.1% share of the vote.

After 90 minutes midweek, there is certainly less concern about his ankle problems and, like Mané, he gets to face a defence that tends to be quite obliging away from home.

The Egyptian himself has scored in all but one of Liverpool’s home matches in the Premier League this season.

The 5.8% of managers who backed Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) in the captain poll will be hoping for good news from Frank Lampard in his Friday press conference after he sustained a knock to the hip in the Champions League.

If he does start against West Ham then he could have an enjoyable Saturday afternoon. The Hammers have been very poor defensively recently, conceding three goals in each of their last three matches.

As Fantasy managers continue to get positive vibes from Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Spurs, Harry Kane (£10.8m) and Son Heung-min (£9.7m) are naturally attracting some support for the captaincy.

They have been backed by 4% and 3.9% respectively for the visit of Bournemouth to north London.

Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) who has more points than any other Chelsea player since Gameweek 10, has been garnered the support of 3.2% for that meeting with West Ham.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m), Benjamin Mendy (£5.8m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) are the only other options with more than a 1% share.

    Everton with some of the best defensive stats away from home in the league. Will they play for Silva? Fancy a tight match and Leicester to concede

            Have you seen my HOF rank? And this from an unlinked profile. What a knob..

              Not the kind of HOF rank most people would brag about is it?

                Decent enough for me to provide justification to someone calling out an outlier of a season for me. I link my profile for staters which is more than can be said for trolling noobs

              If that is what is important to you, finished 5k last year and top 50k the previous 4 seasons.

              Wonder what your HOF ranking will be when you finish 4million this year

                Of course you did 😆 I just don’t get why people here act like total wankers. No wonder the gravitation to Twitter

                    Touche! His HOF rank is about double yours btw... 😆

                    1. IRBOX ⚽

                      He has had 1 better finish than my 3!? Obviously a longer career leverages a better rank. I know who the superior manager is

                        The HOF says he is. Or should we ignore it now that it has let you down?

                        You aren’t looking at how that ranking system is weighted. He has 1 better finish than me. I have 3 better than his second best. It’s simple

                      3. Fitzy.

                        So, we are now ignoring HOF? Understood.

                        No you’re ignoring how the system factors in total seasons played. The simple extrapolation of my performance to the extra seasons clearly puts me ahead

                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 20 days ago

                        I was OR 350 this time last year. The simple extrapolation of that through the season and the subsequent rest of time makes me the king of FPL

                        I think I've got it now. You're the better manager because in the seasons you didn't play you would have got better ranks than him. Pretty hard to dispute that.

                        Mate I was 78th a decade ago. Extrapolate that shiz out. GOAT?

                        It’s an easy assumption

      Best xGc, fewest shots conceded, few shots conceded in the box, fewest big chances conceded. Incredible from the Toffees

        Yet still somehow contriving to lose.

        hmm

    3. Karan14

      Southampton, Brighton, Burnley and Bournemouth last 4 away matches.

        1. Ginkapo FPL

          Also without their first choice midfielders against probably the 2nd best midfield in the league after City.

              Ah, but I am going to have to add a correction factor for the “team I support” bias

                Bias by quoting stats? Not sure that checks out pal

                  Nope, not for the stats bit. The numbers are what they are. But for the eye test bit, and their interpretation in terms of Everton scoring. Lower scoring game, I can see that happening based off the stats. That’s probably the only thing holding some back from captaining Vardy.

      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I think we can all agree this season is indeed incredible from the toffees

      Averaging a point a game and a worse defence than Bournemouth

    7. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I don’t know which stats you found which suggest that but numbers aside the morale and play doesn’t look too inspiring. Al the rumours about Silva leaving can’t have helped. Correct me Everton fans, but Silva doesn’t look like he’s being disliked by the fan base as much as just being rather incompetent for the job at hand.

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Like I said: away from home they have the best expected goals against, best total shots conceded, best shots in the box conceded and best big chances conceded. Despite the opposition that’s not to be sneezed at

        1. ManUnitedComeBack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Hmmm I take your point. Personally I’m steering right clear given their short-term fixtures but I’ll be keeping an eye on bringing in Holgate (if he’s still getting steady minutes) on my GW19 wildcard.

      ... if its any use I'm not wild about Vardy as a person. But the man only needs a sniff right now. Useful to know about Everton defence - they have badly missed a good DCM. Is Gbamin back anytime soon?

        Mate all I was trying to highlight was that Vardy may not be the best option this week! Now I feel attacked and vindicated against. Without Gbamin and Gomes (even Delph) it isn’t looking great but the back 4 have the ability to keep it tight enough imo. Liverpool (C) this GW

            Imo... Someone just made a minor comment regarding your PP suggesting biasy and you hit back with somet that wasn't necessary. If I did that every time someone mentioned me choosing players or making comments because of my PP then I'd be making a case for bullying. Just take it on the chin and accept it :).

                Nope, you got lightly ribbed for a controversial interpretation as is absolutely typical for a board like this. You reacted by calling people kn0bs and wa$#ers

                It's sad to watch, and to see you're convinced that others are to blame

                  It’s obvious the site has gone to the dogs. Where’s Mark? Where’s the mods? They are all on Twitter and for good reason. With the increase in popularity of FPL, so to does the quality diminish

          He's just fighting himself, all the time. The burden of Irbox is spread thinly across many thousands of FFSCOUT posters, but he has to live this life of incessant defensiveness, anger and confrontation 24 hours a day

              Because you conduct yourself like Jose Mourinho. You manage to create confrontation absolutely everywhere you go but remain convinced that it's actually everyone else who is our to get you. It's verging on paranoid delusion. Examine your part in how all your posts rapidly escalate to abusive confrontation

              One positive thing I will say about Irbox, is that at least he sticks with it on here through the tough times. Most FFS posters of his style bugger off and are never heard of again at the first sign of their rank starting to go south.

      2. MSN

        1 month, 20 days ago

        Once again misleading stats. Why use away games only. Considering the teams they have played away : Palace, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Burnley, Brighton and Southampton no wonder they're best. None of them are good attacking teams.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Are they not playing away from home this GW!? It’s obvious..

          1. The Champ is here
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            That's about as menaingful as historical stats vs Leicester tbf. Why ignore half the data?

          2. MSN
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            It doesn't work like that. Good defences are good both home and away, more so at home. They're playing Leicester this week. Would you only their past games against Leicester only? No.

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              1 month, 20 days ago

              Their stats are also good at home. The stats say they have been unlucky. I’m not saying they are good by any means this season, I just can’t see Leicester mauling them and there are better options than Vardy captain

              Of course it does. What a ridiculous comment.
              Irbox may have the world's biggest shovel and never knows when to stop digging but his away stats are relevant.

          Yeah cherry picked eh. Still they have talented players and a good defensive unit. Confidence about as low as it can get though contrast that with Leicester who are beaming. 3-1 Leicester I reckon

          Even Salah is due for that matter and has a much better fixture.

          Think he's the one who will punish sellers.

          1. HurriKane
            • 7 Years

              Yeah no reason to sell those two.

              Sterling to Salah is what im considering.
              Fancy the Egyptian more given the fixtures.

        If Tammy is out I have our Lord John of House Lundstram ready to come in and Cantwell behind him on the bench in case anyone else decides not to turn up.
        Quite happy with my bench for the first time in a long time.

            Salah KDB Maddison Mount
            Abraham Jimenez Vardy

                1 month, 20 days ago

                Ah I see, ya you got a point. I have Jimmy playing too against Lund so don't fancy a clean sheet. He is an OOP player though and has chipped in with some attacking returns already.
                Why is Cantwell flagged again?

                1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Just a knock I think. Guessing he'll be reet

          Yeah both great bench players I’m starting both. Cantwell looked good in that position and that arsenal defence is so bad

      8. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Bought Tammy at 7.3 and he is 8 now so I have a selling price of 7.6. So 1 drop in price will not affect me is that right?

        1. wasp3000
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          correct

      9. Zim0
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Why isn't Leicester defence in the scout picks? Everton pretty much suck at scoring goals and it's at Leicester home and they have the most clean sheets.

        1. Drop the Dendoncker
          • 6 Years

        Mane, KdB, Martial, Mount, Hayden
        Jimenez, Tammy, Vardy

        Time to get Spurs players in?

              Not yet. Waiting for news on Tammy.
              Sterling to Salah or Mount to Pulisic my probable moves if Tammy is ok or just missing one game.

              1. Tshelby
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Going to keep Tammy except if he's out for more than 2 games. My bench is strong enough to cover him.
                Would love to have Pulisic don't know about Salah and form and all.

                1. Karan14
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Yeah even ill sell if hes misses 3 games which looks unlikely.

                  Bit of a punt on Salah. Cant ask for better fixtures and im chasing so hopefully can make up some rank.

          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Debating this myself but I just can't get rid of KdB ( maybe the best player in the league ) before Newcastle

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            You expecting City to win big against Newcastle?

            1. Tshelby
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I think City need a big win. Newcastle was really bad against Aston Villa but that being said they will probably now have learned how to defend but I think there is something in it for City and KdB but that's my opinion.

              Keeping KdB for this game and monitor the Spurs is what I'm doing

              1. ZeBestee
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Yeah, KDB is massive but he doesn't necessarily do really well away from home and the enxt 2 are away games. I have 2FT, maybe use 1 and keep the other by switching back if need be. Cheers.

        1. Kiwi Don
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Kelly will play as Ward injured.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Not really. Even Kelly is more a CB.

        3. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          They don't have other recognized full backs apart from the 2 they have. So chances of Kelly starting is high unless Roy chooses from the youth.

            He needs to be out by then!
            Norwich will be the perfect game for either Ljungberg as interim manager, or a new manager, to start off their reign.

        Bench one?

        A) Soyuncu - EVE (Only if Evans is ruled otherwise he starts)
        B) Lundy - wol
        C) Tomori - WHU

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Exact same dilemma for me. I've been benching Tomori the whole week but just had a look at the scout squad which made me reconsider a bit.. Very close, but between Tomori and Soy for me

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            If Tammy misses just missed this game it will make the decision easier for me.
            Probably too risky to bench Lundy as I feel Wolves will concede.
            Ive been on Tomori too waiting for news on Evans if he"s ruled out ill probably bench Soy as I dont trust Morgan at all.

        Regarding Abraham, is the general consensus to keep if out for 1 GW, sell if any longer than that?

        Already on a -4 this week so hoping for some good news.

          If lamps clearly indicates he's fine and probably rest up the weekend only then I'm keeping. If he says anything that indicates a week rest, then it could be 3 gws gone.

          Fingers crossed hes clear today in the presser.

        Heaton
        Robertson | Mings | Tomori
        KDB | Mane | Maddison | Mount
        Abraham | Vardy | Jimenez

        Button | Dendonocker | Rico | El Mohamadey

        1 FT 2.4m ITB

        I was thinking of either;

        Robertson - TAA
        Mount - Pulisic

        Leaving my FT for this week.

          Elmo stinks your team. There's a certain replacement in CPL

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Aye, he's been on my bench for a while. Haven't a clue what CPL is. But maybe El Mohamadey to Williems is a good option. I am looking at a WC in a few GW though, so maybe hold tight?

        Amazing the toxicity prevalent here.. used to be a site full of wisdom and encouragement. No wonder the migration to Twitter from the mods and accomplished managers. I’ve provided at least 10+ hot topics over the years through statistical analysis and thought provoking insight but just can’t deal with the shite around these parts anymore

          I think there's a lot of tension convergence. Lots of frustration in fpl with established players/methods not working out. Throw in the dark time of year, existential crisis, political division stoked up by a nasty media... Et voilà!

          I’m sorry to say it mate but you need to take a look through your history and ask yourself why you are experiencing so much toxicity. You’re aggressively defensive if anyone disagrees with or questions you. Treat others better and you’ll get it back

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

        1. Tsparkes10

          Got a spicy feeling about Djenepo If he starts

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Djenepo as 4th midfielder next gameweeks? Really exciting player

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Very tempted as a 5th if Tammy and boufal out

              WC headache. Had planned to wait until GW19 to play WC to set up team for Christmas season, but with Tammy probably out and Mount a doubt to play, there's a strong case for playing WC tonight for a Liverpool double-up and shift Mount for Pulisic. Hate a rushed WC though, really would like a whole week to tinker. Apart from Tammy and Mount, team is OK, but no FT left:

              Pope
              TAA Soyuncu Tomori Lundstram
              Mané Son Maddison Mount
              Vardy Jimenez
              (Button Lowton Guendozi Tammy)
              0 FT, £3.7

                  Txs. I must say I don't share you faith about Mount - and I have Guendozi coming in for him.. And just thinking, if wanting a Liverpool triple, this is the GW to do it. E.g. Tammy -> Firmino could be a shrewd differential.

                      Never ever listen to the cover version by Tatu though - you will never be able to unhear it.

                        Morrissey: Yes, it was magnificent. Absolutely. Again, I don't know much about them.
                        Interviewer: They're the teenage Russian lesbians.

                  If Tammy is out, who should I replace him with?

                  A) Laca (fixtures)
                  B) Rashford (underlying stats)
                  C) Ings (fixtures)
