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.

      Looks good, personally I prefer Auba over Sterling, but could go either way, always a chance that Raheem explodes.

        Yeah it's a tough one, I just think cities fixtures and attack are better.

        Thanks for commenting

    Something a bit more light hearted before deadline...

      looks good, nothing obvious.

      Nice Team

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years

      Stevens for Baldock

  5. Astronautovic

    Last Forward spot: Nketiah or Samatta?

    1. Energetics
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Nketiah

      1. Astronautovic

        thanks

    2. Jellyfish

      who are youir other forwards?

      1. Astronautovic
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Auba and Ings/McBurnie
        depends Nketiah would allow me to keep Ings. If i take Samatta then i will have McBurnie and Samatta -> can just go wrong.

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Samatta, but the price difference is quite big

      1. Astronautovic
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        True but idk if Samatta is worth the money ove Nketiah. Samatta will probably get 2 starts.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I could FH but not happy with my GW38 team i'd revert to, free UT seems like the better value long term.

        2. Thescaff
          • 1 Year

          Keep an eye on early team news re fleck

          Taking a punt on Fleck?

        4. Team Cruel
          • 4 Years

          Feck is seemingly out, get rid

      6. Team Cruel
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Why no love for Ceballos? Surely a better pick than Saka?

        1. Thescaff
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Saka way more productive

      7. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        If there is ‘early team news’

        What time is it reasonable to expect that ?

            • 9 Years

            Yeah I could downgrade Norwood to Cantwell and get Hendo for Leno ... Would leave me with only 2 ARS assets though.

        SCOUT PICKS CHALLENGE - GAMEWEEK 30+

        Hi everyone! Following the restart of FPL, I will be looking to keep this running until the end of the season.

        Unfortunately I'm yet to catch up following GW26 results - sadly during this period of time, me and my siblings lost both of our parents to COVID-19 in the space of 10 days. As you can imagine, priorities have been elsewhere.

        That said, I'll dedicate some time to providing GW27, 28 and 29 results as this gameweek goes on. Hopefully if I can produce them all quickly, we can move on with finishing this season.

        Good luck to everyone, and feel free to join in if you never have before!

        ****** WHAT IS IT? ******

        For those of you who haven't been around or aren't aware, every evening prior to the start of the gameweek FFS releases their picks of players for the gameweek, "Scout Picks", as well as 3 differentials before the first games to separate yourself from the crowd.

        This is your way to have a bit of fun and challenge those scout picks with a set of your own (read instructions below). This will always open the day before the gameweek starts around 8pm, and whilst you don't have to play weekly, the more you play the better chance you have of winning!

        ****** INSTRUCTIONS ******

        Everyone can have their own scout picks (there is no limit on team value) but with one simple rule,

        YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE PLAYER FROM EACH TEAM
        (yes, two of your players at least will be on opposing teams).

        You can only have ONE submission, and your FIRST submission will be what is accepted. You also must respond DIRECTLY to this post (I.e. not to a reply on this post, just as a reply to this post). FFS Scout Picks are automatically enrolled. Teams must comply with FPL formation rules and be submitted in an easy to read format, e.g.

        GK
        DEF DEF DEF
        MID MID MID MID
        FOR FOR FOR

        Deadline for this gameweek is Wednesday 17 June, 17:00 GMT.

        ****** SCORING ******

        Regardless of number of applicants, scoring will be done by the following:

        1st place: 3 points
        Top 4% of the population will rank "second" and score 2 points.
        Top 10% of the population will rank "third" and score 1 point.

        There is also a bonus point which everyone is eligible for. If you score higher than FFS' Scout Picks AND Substitutes (i.e. 14 players), you will be awarded with a bonus point regardless of whether you were in the top 10% scoring positions or not.

        Welcome to the game, and good luck.

        1st - COYS96 [23pts]
