Captain Sensible

Who are the best Captain options for FPL Blank Gameweek 1?

Jan Sienkiewicz was the king of the Fantasy Premier League captaincy in 2019/20, scoring a whopping 657 points from the armband, the second-highest in the whole world. We asked him to help out with the captaincy debate ahead of the new campaign’s Gameweek 1 deadline.


Quite an unprecedented 2020/2021 pre-season is drawing to a close, as we are eagerly waiting for the new FPL campaign to start. Hundreds of drafts, multiple formations, Wildcard strategies and planning early transfers; we have all been there and, in fact, we are all living in this world right now.

There is one common denominator in our efforts; trying to find the best captain. Getting the right skipper is usually a crucial component to having a successful season and Fantasy managers are looking to start the campaign strongly with the right choice. Let’s evaluate the options available for us in Gameweek 1.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, only those with a valid subscription can access it in full.

Captain Poll

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m)  tops the Fantasy Football Scout captain poll with 53.3% of votes, as he faces a newly-promoted Fulham side in Gameweek 1.

The Arsenal striker, who has been reclassified as a midfielder for this season’s edition of FPL, is currently owned by 44.1% of Fantasy managers – which is more than the combined ownership of Sadio Mané (£12.0m, 13.3% ownership) and Mohammed Salah (£12.0m, 29.8% ownership).

The Gabonese international starred in Arsenal’s Community Shield victory two weeks ago (scoring a long-distance goal in a 1-1 draw that the Gunners won on penalties) and then netted twice in a 3-2 friendly defeat to Aston Villa behind-closed-doors.

Aubameyang’s great form is accompanied by a favourable Gameweek 1 fixture too, as Fulham’s defensive vulnerabilities are still fresh in people’s minds from the 2018/19 campaign. The Cottagers conceded a league-high of 81 goals the last time they were in the top flight, which included nine goals over two games against Arsenal (5-1 and 4-1 defeats).

Metrics

The second most popular pick for the armband among the Fantasy Football Scout users this week is Salah (25.6%). Considering that the runaway 2019/20 champions are hosting newly-promoted Leeds United, and Manchester City and Manchester United are without a fixture, it seems to some extent surprising that the Fantasy-proven Egyptian midfielder is struggling to attract more interest for the armband.

Even more of a surprise, Mané sits at third in the poll with only 3.9% of votes. The Senegalese winger, who scored 18 goals and provided 10 Fantasy assists last season, showed glimpses of class in pre-season and will be looking to improve on his impressive home record against newly-promoted opposition on Saturday.

Behind the podium we can find Chelsea’s new striker Timo Werner (£9.5m, 3.5% of votes), Liverpool’s defender Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m, 2.1%), as well as Tottenham Hotspur assets – Son Heung-min (£9.5, 2.1%) and Harry Kane (£10.5m, 1.8%).

Based on the poll, the main decision managers will have to make regarding captaincy will involve comparing Aubameyang with Salah. We will therefore mostly focus on the Liverpool and Arsenal options.

    Morning all

    I’ve got 0.5 ITB - are any of these worth a move or just keep the money ?

    A. Mcarthy > ramsdale (don’t have kwp)
    B. Mitro > Wilson

    1. Sandesh_
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Keep

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Think B could pay off if you don't have ASM

    3. Kitsune
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I think Wilson has a good chance against West Ham. Mitrovic is a good choice though. I thought about Ramsdale but the fixtures get a bit tricky GW 4-8. However I do have Egan.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah, I’m planning to possibly wildcard around gw 8 so maybe ramsdale then I don’t have Egan

        I could do Justin > Egan but I’m planning 343 and already own coady,dier and taa so Egan would only play the first 2 gw’s

    Tear this team apart please : No Liverpool and too many Spurs is obvious, I think. 1.5 itb for getting Utd assets and/or upgrading Barnes.

    McCarthy
    Davies, Justin, KWP
    (A)uba, Son, Barnes, ASM/Doucoure?
    Kane, Werner, Ings

    Steer, AWB, Mitchell, Anguissa/Bissouma?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      It is a good team. Only issue is you'll need a Pool Defender by GW 4. So make sure you have a cash cow ready. I see 2/3 of them 🙂

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        That's the plan. Gamble on Spurs for the first few, if it doesn't work out then the moves are ready for the usual suspects.

  7. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Any thoughts on this (hopefully) final team :

    McCarthy
    TAA Dier Vinagre
    Mane Auba Son Soucek
    Werner Ings Adams

    Bench: Steer Bissouma Michell Taylor

    0.5ITB (for Ings to Martial GW2)

    1. sw3nzor
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I personally would never go with Soucek. He will be a liability imo, and his price will drop drastically.
      The rest is solid.

  8. BigBillyBass
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Please RMT fellas

    McCarthy (Steer)
    TAA Egan Coady (Taylor Mitchell)
    Salah Auba Havertz ASM Soucek
    Werner Ings (Brewster)

  9. sw3nzor
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Feels solid, nothing in the bank.

    McCarthy, (Button)
    TAA, James, Justin, (Mitchell, Douglas)
    Salah, Auba, Son, Barnes, ASM
    Werner, DCL, (Vassilev)

    Thoughts?

    1. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Bench is awful though

      1. sw3nzor
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I'm happy with the bench. Mitchell is there if needed, its the start of the season. Idm 4.0s

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I would prefer a 6.5 frwrd over dcl and one of your 4.0 def to 4.5

      1. sw3nzor
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        For me potential and stability over prices.
        We can't be sure but if Everton smash it, I wannabe there.
        Don't forget I have only 2 strikers so more quality needed forward compared to a 3-4-3.
        I have ASM -> no Wilson
        I have Barnes -> no Vardy
        I have DCL -> no James Rodriguez
        This is the theory behind some of the picks. If I start to mix it up, I have to take care not to have too many from the same team.
        How to transfer Martial/Rashford more of a concern for me tbh.

        1. MFFista
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Dude, you’ve chosen the second best option in all above. Not logic and not a wise strategy.

          1. sw3nzor
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            James Rodriguez is not PL proven. DCL is a better option there imo.
            ASM and Barnes are obviously second best behind Wilson and Vardy, but I save a lot of money on them to afford Salah, Auba, Son, TAA, Werner and this way DCL too.
            Its the start of the season, somewhere I have to chose the second bests.
            Rather than having SOUCEK in my starting 11..................

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              "James Rodriguez is not PL proven. DCL is a better option there imo."

              Out of context, that's really funny. Where else would you read Dominic Calvert-Lewin is better than James Rodriguez??!! 🙂

              1. sw3nzor
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                I'm not saying he is better, but DCL had 13 goals last season, in a league Rodriguez never even played once. And his price is still decent. DCL is a striker, Rodriguez not. In my head it means if DCL is surrounded with more quality players -> better chance to have more goals.

    3. sw3nzor
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Btw I made the decision.
      Having a 4.5 forward means that player never gonna start, but in midfield there are plenty of starter options for that price.
      So I transfered in Mitro and kicked out Barnes for Reed. This way I have +1mil to spend or keep ITB.

    Johnstone (button)
    TAA / Robbo / Dier (Lewis / Ferguson)
    Auba / Alli / Soucek / Pereira (Bruno)
    Wilson / Werner / Mitrovic

    Consensus now seems to be Steer over Nyland. Anyone have a source, or is it just group think?

    1. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      A bunch of Aston Vila fans on Twitter are steering towards Steer. Just search Steer and Nyland in Twitter and you’ll find a few posts.

    Are Arsenal more likely to play 4ATB or 3ATB against Fulham?

  19. CoKane & Zohores
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    DCL vs Wilson +0.5???

    Or would I be better off trying to get Rodriguez in during Gameweek 2/3 if he passes the eye test?

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Wilson first

      DCL in GW2 if needs be

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I have Wilson and Rodriguez.
      I’ve thought about going with something like DCL and Barnes instead but James is just a more exciting pick.

      I like Newcastle’s fixtures as well. Do you have another Newcastle attacker like ASM?

      1. CoKane & Zohores
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yes I have ASM and JWP as my 3rd and 4th.

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I see your dilemma now. Your not sure whether to double up on Newcastle attack.
          Think I’d go DCL then .

          1. CoKane & Zohores
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Thanks.

  20. TomPe

    A) Son + Mittchel
    B) Havertz + KWP

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Depends on your other defenders. If Mitchell is your 5th then probably A.

      1. TomPe
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Mittchel to play in 4-4-2

        1. TomPe
          1 month, 15 days ago

          OK, I think I have just changed my mind (again!) and I will be going with this:

          Ramsdale
          TAA - Robbo - Egan
          Auba - Salah - Zaha - Bowen - JWP
          Werner - Adams

          Thoughts & comments more than welcome. Cheers and GL to everyone!

    anybody worry about captaining AUBA becuase is the first game, and if he does nothing and thats it to your first gw of fpl?

    1. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Kane cap locked

    2. Bonita
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      First time playing in the Cottage. I am worried it might be a low scoring game.

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        First time in this season?

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Don't know who else to captain besides salah

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I'm not © Auba but that's not the reason. I prefer Salad more.

      Auba & Mitro in that game for me. Hopefully will be a goal fest 😀

    5. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      if..if..if. The most pointless argument that plagues these threads.

  22. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    So I like my current draft
    But GW2 would see 8 of my players in the liverpool V che
    And sou V Spurs games.
    Should this make me re think the draft?

    1. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Probably yes

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        McCarthy
        Kwp Davies TAA

        Salah Alli Havertz
        Werner
        Could be a mess of the all concede as there is no guarantee I get attacking returns. 2 *
        1-0 Results with an unlikely scorer and I get a 20 point week.
        Might start with McCarthy to Ryan and go from there.

        1. Disturbed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Just realised I have 5 of those plus kane and jwp. Guess everyone's in a similar situation unless you plan to switch one or two of them to united players. Would get ryan over mccarthy if you already have kwp.

          1. Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Glad to know I am not the only one with this problem 🙂
            GL for the season

            1. Andy_Social

              1 month, 15 days ago

              GW2 is particularly tricky. But it's a marathon not a sprint - it's not worth destroying a draft you've set up for the long haul over one GW.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Nailing © is important in GW 2. It's going to be a tricky GW with hits flying around. Many would WC straight away

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I thought Auba is given

      2. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Auba or Martial for me.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          yeh, it's gotta be Auba or a Red Devil

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Will have to go with the marathon not a sprint theory and hope for the best.
      Nailing the captain will be critical to avoid a possible very bad week.
      I had decided not to go for any united players short term but I think understanding how bad GW2 could be has changed my mind on this again.

    Hi all,

    We np have 30 entries to the FPL FFS Old school league!

    I have been on and off the site numerous times over the past 11 years and whilst I have been very impressed with the staggering amount of new content the past few years, id like to rekindle some of the communication between the old school registrants of the site.

    To this end, I have set up an FPL FSS Old School Classic league for registrants who have been on the site for 10 years +.

    I thought this would be a fun way to see which old school lurkers are out there and to try and tempt them to come out of the woodwork.

    Who of the FPL FSS stalwarts would like to pit themselves against age-old friends and foes?

    This isn't supposed to be inclusive and one day the new school will be eligible!

    The eagle-eyed among you will net that the ; League name has been changed slightly to hide the fact that you have been on here for at least 10 years....League name: FPL FSS Old School..

    FOR ALL THOSE THAT HAVE JOINED, PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR NAME AS REGISTERED ON THE FPL SITE, AND FFS ID IN ORDER TO CONTINUE YOUR ANONYMITY THROUGHOUT THE SEASON! djasatate@yahoo.co.uk

      Nice team.

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Looks V good. I would get a 4.5 defender in place of Egan and get ASM/Doucoure in place of Soucek.

      1. Disturbed

  25. Francescoli

    A) KWP Havertz Werner
    B) Robertson Rashford Nketiah

  26. PogBruno

    What's your best combo for combo (MF+FWD) for upto 13m?

    Currently on Perriera + DCL

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      One less combo for 🙂

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Bowen and Wilson

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Wilson & anyone actually 🙂

        1. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          DCL and Everton (IF strike form with new additions) can score against any team, whereas Newcastle and any other fwds in this price range could struggle in these games.

          What do you think mate?

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Individual player quality is also important IMO.
            DCL is sh.t
            Wilson is a good finisher IMO.

            Go with your gut. Don't let me influence your decision.

            I agree Everton are good team now. But I don't trust DCL enough

            1. PogBruno
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Good point about Wilson's quality

      2. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Bowen would mean another transfer, which is putting me off

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Barnes and Mitrovic?

    3. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Pereira and Wilson

  27. NULL-X-VOID
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Why are people still starting with Vinagre?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      It's the hope that kills you

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Because as of this moment he's a Wolves player and their first choice WB.

    3. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    how is bowen for a pick?

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Good for gw 1. Then look at the fixtures.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Decent

  29. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    I’m really really tempted to go 3 Chelsea.
    Pulisic,Havertz and Werner.

    1. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Would wait till gw3 to do that

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        38*
        😉

      2. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeh probably wise.
        I’m on Alli,Havertz,Werner with 0.5m itb.

      3. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I hunk we'll all end up with 3 at some point.

      I just want to give them a bit of time to gel at the start.

      1. thericeking
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Say hunk a lot do ya

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Don’t know how that happened 😆

  30. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Better options for 4.5-5 defender other than Dier, KWP & Egan?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Charlie Taylor

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Already got Martial, that'd mean 2 players I'll bench in GW1
        But might consider him

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Long or short term?

      Looks like Holding and Saliba start tomorrow. Vinagre's still at Wolves. Taylor comes in GW2. Keane has a run of good fixtures. Shaw and Lindelhof are coming. Saiss and Coady are great.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Longish, considering Taylor, like wolves & Burnley CS chances better than Sheffield

    3. sw3nzor
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Reece James, James Justin

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Will either of them start beyond GW1-2? doubtful

        1. sw3nzor
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          if not I'm in trouble 🙂
