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.

      I'm a bit wary of Lundstrum minutes, and Targett/Soyuncu in general. Otherwise looks v. strong.

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

        Yeah I share your concerns. Just struggling to find good defender options who cost less than £5m for this week’s fixtures. Any recommendations?

      2. Millie7
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        why concerned about Soyoncu?

    1. Jönny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Might depend on your other City players... presume Sterling would be your third?

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

      I'm tentatively going A, as my third city attacker - b seems safest though

      I like it.

      Will Reina start?

      1. YEAH PITCH!

        Heaton is out. Reina must?

    Anyone reckon Cancelo or Zincenko will start today?

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

      I reckon they both will tbh, maybe Walker over Cancelo

  12. Bubbles1985
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Those with WC BB and FH left what is your plan?

    I'm thinking FH this week then BB before using WC.

    But talking myself out of it and thinking I should use this free WC to get a DGW BB squad before using WC next week and FH in the final week to get a strong final 11?

    Thoughts please?

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I'm doing BB this week - WC next week. Undecided on FH and TC yet

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

      I used the UTs this week & am BBing. Will WC for 31 or 32 & not sure when I'll use FH yet

    3. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      For me the final GW is always a let down whether its players getting benched or results not going the way you would expect so i wouldnt use FH on the last GW

    4. Bubbles1985
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Cheers.

      Seems like second option is the best plan of attack then!

  13. CC22
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    a) Sterling & Mount
    b) Mahrez & Pépé

    Got KDB, Aguero, Auba & Abraham as other Man City, Arsenal & Chelsea assets?

  14. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    A) Sterling+Jota
    B) Mahrez+Lacazette

  15. Neo-Viper
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    I have Egan Basham and Fleck.

    Do i upgrade Basham to Stevens? That would mean Ozil will become Mount.

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Fleck reported as a doubt in the Telegraph.

        1. Neo-Viper

          Cheers bud!

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Mount better than Ozil anyway

  16. DantheManinaPan

    1 month, 22 days ago

    Does anyone know what's happening with price changes? i.e. are

    A) All price movements completely stopped (ala pre-season)?
    B) Price movements being tracked but not prices not changed with changes set to occur after the deadline?

    If B is true, we might want to be careful planning any transfers...

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

      been wondering this myself

  17. tom2224

    Daft question...How can i see if i've still got my WC or not?

    1. Jon Snow
      • 5 Years

      Check your gameweek history, shows what chips you've played

  18. HuttonDressedasLahm

    Insane to go without KDB?
    If I downgrade to Mahrez?
    Trying to shoehorn in Sterling Mane Aguero Trent

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

      yes it would be insane. Just go Sterling to Mahrez

    2. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Insane, yes.

      More important that any of the other four players you've mentioned, ESPECIALLY Sterling!

  19. Jon Snow
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Ederson, Reina
    TAA, Doherty, Lundstram, Egan, Lascelles
    KdB, Mount, McGinn, Saka, Norwood
    Auba, Aguero, Tammy

    BB this week, WC next week.
    G2G? Midfield is a bit trash.
    Should I risk Fleck (maybe injured) instead of Norwood?

    1. Neo-Viper
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I am in the same boat. Fleck injury made me downgrade Ozil to Mount and Fleck to Norwood.

      Can't you squeeze Grealish?

  20. as33
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Salah or Mane and why? Thanks

    1. kamdaraji
      • 11 Years

      salah. nicer hair

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Mane v weak left side of Everton and definitely fit

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

      mane

  21. yiidddoo
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Sterling or mahrez??

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

      mahrez for the extra money I reckon

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think this could go either way so I’m leaning towards Mahrez due to price.

    3. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Sterling (for security of starts)

    4. kamdaraji
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      sterling

    5. yiidddoo
      • 3 Years

      Cheers guys! Appreciated.

    6. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Sterling higher ceiling
      Mahrez better value

  22. YEAH PITCH!
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Do these unlimited transfers count towards overall transfer count?

    1. Prøfeßör …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yes

    2. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yes it looks like it

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Thanks both.

  23. Pigs in Blankets!!!
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    So I’m trying to decide which is best?
    A) Three Sheffield Utd defenders and TAA
    B) Fleck in midfield with two Sheffield Utd defenders and TAA?

    Let me know A or B, thanks and good luck everyone.

    1. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      A

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      A

      You didnt need include TAAA there

  24. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    On long term BB30 + who would you have out of

    Saka
    Nketiah

    Any ideas would be welcomed

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

      Nketiah probably

    2. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think the more important factor here is who you would otherwise have as your 5th mid / 3rd striker

  25. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Mahrez Leno Stevens Baldock Samatta

    OR

    Sterling Reina Basham Egan
    Nketiah

    The second one got the style but it seems so rock Solid to take a striker that will start two games and wingbacks instead of cbs.

    Is Sterling worth it in times of Rotation over Mahrez minutewise is the question

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

      A

  26. Garam MOSALAH
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    TC: KDB or Kun ?

    Better pick: Douglas Luiz or Norwood?

    1. Neo-Viper
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      if Chasing KDB, otherwise KUN

      Norwood.

  27. dz1984
    • 10 Years

    Any room for improvement in this BB team? I will be wildcarding the following week.

    Henderson, Leno
