Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Double Gameweek 30+?

Manchester City are the focus of the Double Gameweek 30+ captain poll.

Their assets have dominated the discussion boards for weeks since the fixtures were announced, and now it is time to make the big decision.

We’ve compared all the best options to help you chose the right one for your team…

Captain Poll

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) is the current poll leader heading into today’s deadline, backed by 40.1% of voters.

With two matches and more minutes than any other outfield Manchester City asset this season, that is not a massive surprise at all.

The Belgian is top of the league for assists in 2019/20, with a total of 18, and his eight goals so far this campaign already matches his best tally in a Premier League season.

Not too far behind him is Sergio Aguero (£11.8m), who has garnered the support of 33.9% for the very same fixtures as De Bruyne.

The Argentinian has five goals in his last six against Arsenal and the same number in his last six against Burnley. He also started seven of the last nine matches before lockdown, suggesting that Pep Guardiola still favours him over Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m).

The gap between those two Manchester City options and the rest of the pack is rather large.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) has come up in third place but still only managed to pull in the support of 6.2% of voters.

The Arsenal man is generally afforded more minutes than the average Manchester City asset, although there is a tight turnaround between fixtures in Double Gameweek 30+.

Either way, he is still in the Golden Boot race with 17 goals this season, two behind Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) and, if he were to bridge the 15-point gap between him and the Leicester man, he would be in with a chance of being the top-scoring FPL forward for two seasons in a row.

Jack Grealish (£6.4m) is a surprise inclusion in the top five for the poll results, but support for the Aston Villa man is understandable. He has 14 attacking returns this season, more than any colleague.

Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) completes the top five with the backing of 4.7%. We imagine the support for him is so small on account of his rotation threat and his poor form going into lockdown.

His last attacking return came in Gameweek 19 with his tally for the season standing at 13. The last two seasons have seen Sterling get up to 35 and 32 respectively, showing just how much of a struggle 2019/20 has been for him.

    Thoughts on the BB team?

    Leno - Henderson
    Lundstram - Egan - Bellerin - Alonso - Doherty
    Mahrez - Kdb - Pepe - Grealish - Mount
    Aguero - Jimenez - Pukki

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Not keen on Arsenal assets. Think they are traps. But than that it is great. Captain?

      1. Thescaff
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Got a funny feeling Arsenal may play well

  4. Hryszko
    • 3 Years

    Please somebody help me out, i'm seriously stuck! Is this a decent FH Team?

    Thoughts please? FH Team for this DGW.

    Hendo

    TAA - Stevens - Lund - Saiss

    Grealish - Salah - KDB - Mahrez-

    Aguero - Auba

    Subs: Reina / Nketiah / Guendouzi / Williams

    Any changes?

    1. Thescaff
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Decent

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Very GL

      Start Nketiah over Saiss !

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Start Nketiah over Saiss?

        I'll take your advice on that one!

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Very safe FH team. Still very decent. GL

      1. In a Rush
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Yes Nketiah over Saiss I’m not convinced wet spam won’t score

  5. Jafooli
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    If Fleck is out, does that increase Lundy chances of starting?

    1. Thescaff
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Massively

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yes, makes it almost certain

      1. Jafooli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        😎

    3. CostaCoffee
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yes definitely

    4. In a Rush
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think it does for tonight but without knowing the extent of flecks issue we don’t know if he’ll be back for Newcastle. I’m tempted to switch to Egan for security

      1. Jafooli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Already have him 🙂

        1. In a Rush
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I have Baldock Stevens and Lund at the moment

      1. FPL_DON

        Nice, my only fear would be no Mane/Salah

    • Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Villa will probably win tonight with a cleanie and surprise most if not everyone on here.

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        agree 🙂

      2. _Ninja_
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        With triple shu and no villa def... It wouldnt suprise me at all.

      3. FPL_DON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I fancy villa to get results on both....

      4. Goodnight Kiwi

    • krumcake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      BB team, WC in 31+
      I want to fit in Aguero, Aubameyang, KDB and Sterling. I would also prefer to keep Jimenez. Any changes needed?

      Leno - Henderson
      Targett - Fernandez (NEW) - Egan - Saiss - Lascelles
      Grealish - Sterling - KDB - Fleck - Cantwell
      Aubameyang - Aguero - Jimenez

      0 in the bank 🙂

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Fleck apparently injured so wouldn't risk it. Go for Saka and then upgrade Saiss to Lundstram 🙂

        1. krumcake
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Thank you.

      Now that season is what it is, I am going with Nketiah and not always playing it safe, seems like he has been playing good and Arteta likes him. It's done!

      1. In a Rush
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Snap

      2. _sidney_will
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Pretty positive he’ll start at least one of the two games, great enabler at 4.4m!

          1. Aaa
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Yeah will be bench boosting

        2. Aaa
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          One week punt at a clean sheet and he has a goal threat, will wildcard week after

    • kysersosa
      • 5 Years

      So here is where I’m at for GW 30 BB, WC 31:

      Leno, Henderson
      TAA, Doherty, Lundstram, Stephens, Egan
      KDB, Sterling, Grealish, Mount, Barnes

      Ederson Leno

      KDB Pepe Grealish Fleck Gilmour
      Aguero Aubameyang Samatta.

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Fleck out. Get a third sheff defender and city attacker instead of Ederson, Pepe and Saiss

      2. Weasel Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Possible rumours of Fleck injury

    • abaalan
      • 4 Years

      Thoughts on B. Silva? one of Peps favourites and can play multiple positions.... even if not as explosive as say Mahrez, I would have thought he would get similar or more mins

    • cescpistols111

      Best 4.1m defender just for this GW?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        hanley

      2. La Vida Latte
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        The only 4.1 that is a probable starter is Hanley in Norwich, I think.

    • tim
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Saka or Douglas Luiz?

      1. Thescaff

      2. Miguel Sanchez

        prefer Mane

        1. as33

          Why?

    • Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Any Villains about? Is Reina too much of a gamble you think?

      1. Energetics
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Plumping for him over Leno let’s me improve elsewhere so really tempted

      2. Thescaff
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I don't see why. Surely he joined after being told he'd be first choice now

    • rnrd
      • 5 Years

      Jimenez to be dad for the first time in July.

      Let's start the baby celebration and "jimenez missing because his wife's delivery" speculation

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Went well with Vardy

      2. Collie01

    • La Vida Latte
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      So:
      A) Saka (not nailed on, but Arteta seems to like him)
      B) Fleck (one line about fitness concerns in an article)

      1. Energetics
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        From these two A. But not a lot of love for Saka

    • AVIELD949
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      A) Doherty & Jota (with Egan)
      B) Saiss & Jimi (this also gives me 0.5m to upgrade Egan to Stevens)

      Final BB decision, thanks

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
