Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 9?

Ahead of Gameweek 9, a costly international break and tricky fixtures make for one of the most challenging Fantasy Premier League captaincy debates of the season so far.

Our teams are awash with multi-coloured flags representing injuries and positive coronavirus (COVID-19) tests, limiting our ability to trust assets we have regularly turned to for the armband in 2020/21.

Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) is set to miss at least the next Premier League game as he recovers from COVID-19 while this year’s top-scoring assets so far in Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) face Manchester City.

But fear not, the Captain Sensible article is here to help you pick the best captain from the bunch this week.

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

CAPTAIN POLL

For the first time since last season, Bruno Fernandes (£10.6m) is the runaway leader in a Fantasy Football Scout captain poll, fresh from a 17-point haul at Everton in Gameweek 8.

The Portuguese midfielder has gained more than a third of all votes ahead of Manchester United’s favourable fixture against relegation candidates West Bromwich Albion. 

Fernandes appears to be the only trustworthy Fantasy option among the alternatives for this particular fixture, as no other Manchester United player achieved more than 2% of votes.

Competing for the second and third-place spots are Jack Grealish (£7.5m) and Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) with 11.9% and 10.3% of votes, respectively. 

The Aston Villa midfielder enjoyed a busy week with the English national team, starting all three of their international break matches, against Ireland, Belgium and Iceland. Deserved game-time considering the four goals and six assists Grealish has registered in the Premier League this season; only Salah (67) and Son (74) have more points among midfielders at this stage.

Ziyech, meanwhile, continued his great form by scoring three goals and providing two assist in two games for Morocco having put up double-figure hauls in both of his league starts for Chelsea in 2020/21.

The remaining players with more than 5% of votes are Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m, 9.9% of votes), as well as Chelsea’s left back Ben Chilwell (£6.0m, 8.4%) his team-mate, Timo Werner (£9.4m, 5.7%).

With so many premium assets not featuring at the top-end of the poll this week, is it possible Fantasy managers are overlooking options that still have potential for Gameweek 9? Let’s find out…

    It seems everyone is going for Penandes. Are there any differentials worth considering this GW?

      Trashford or VARdy?

        I like Rashford. But still got a yellow flag. Hopefully we'll hear some positive news later.

      If I knew I was WC'ing after GW9 deadline, I would be tempted by a one week Auba (C) punt. Otherwise Werner, DCL, Grealish and Watkins in that order.

    ***** Friday Morning Teaser!! *****

    So, I looked at the top 10 scoring FPL players across each of the 4 positions

    40 players in total (GKx10 / Defx10 / Midx10 / Fwdx 10)

    I then checked how many players each club had from that cohort of 40 players

    The leaders to date are Villa and Southampton - 5 players each

    With at least 1 player in each postion - this depsite Villa being one of the teams with a game in hand...

    So, there are 4 teams with ZERO players in the top 40

    Sheffield Utd and Baggies are 2 - but who are the other 2??!!!

    1. Olson

    3. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years

      At the start of the IB I was sure I'd do Son > Bruno. Then as things unraveled I was pretty certain I'd take a hit or two...

      Now I'm looking at my team and thinking if I should just captain Son (got a feeling about him) and save the transfer 😆

      Is it madness to go wit this and bank the FT?

      Martinez
      Robbo - Chilwell - Lamptey
      KDB - Son (C) - Zaha - Rodriguez
      Kane - DCL - Wilson

      Steer - Kilman - Mitchel - Stephens

      1 FT, 1.6 ITB

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Team looks alright but I'm not sure about son (c). Id rather captain DCL or even Hames

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          +1

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          YeH Hames looks muy tempting.

      2. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Not madness. City aren't incredible and Son has been solid. Why not,

      3. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Both are good options, especially as you have JRod who would be a captain candidate for me if I had him. Ziyech is another transfer option for you.

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Is Jamal Lewis nailed?
      Now that Matt Ritchie is back.

    5. Jealous Viper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      WC active. Let me know your thoughts please.
      Martinez
      Cancelo Chillwel Creswell
      Kdb Bruno(c) Soucek Bruno
      Watkins DCL Vardy

      Bench- Macey, Foden, Justin, 3.9

      The goal was to have triple city for their good run although I will bench foden for this Spurs game as I feel Soucek is a better option. Also have a fairly decent bench with Soucek and Justin later on if rotation strikes for Cancelo and Foden.

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        2 Brunos?

        1. Jealous Viper
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Really could do with an edit option on this site

      2. Jealous Viper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Grealish instead of Bruno twice lol
        Kdb Soucek Grealish Bruno

        1. JollyGoodYellows
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Nice team. Big fan of Soucek! Do you have a plan to get Salah back in?

          1. Jealous Viper
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Cheers. Appreciate.
            Yup. Have 1.8 itb and would monitor the situation. Would definitely get him back for the fulham game

            1. JollyGoodYellows
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I don't see any problems then! Great team. Help below would be appreciated. Cheers.

      3. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        How much itb? Really want 0.1 so Watkins/Bamford are interchangeable if one drops/rises

        1. Jealous Viper
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Actually have a good 1.8 itb but 1.3 of that is for when I feel I'll need to swap Bruno back to Salah. I have 0.1 to play with. Who would you pick between Bamford and Watkins. Actually was skeptical about having too many eggs in the villa basket but in isolation at 6m, he's a great pick

          1. Olson
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Villa are overperforning by 50-100% goal wise for any team ever that isn't top six. Watkins has the worst goal involvement of all good budgets. So the two side to it are, if we simplify, Villa are the team by far most likely to slide and he's the striker by far most likely to struggle in s team that scores fewer. Other side being they have great fixtures and he's getting points while they haul. The key here isn't so much making sure you pick the right one as making sure you have an alternative/s that won't cost you hits.

            Personally I slightly favour Bamford. Leeds are scoring at a slightly more sustainable rate and he has a higher involvement

            1. Jealous Viper
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Hmm. Great points. Thanks. It will probably come down to the wire for those two for me. Still leaning Watkins way because of the fixtures for now

    6. JollyGoodYellows
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Guys, my transfer this week depends on whether I WC next week. Do you think I should WC next week?

      Mccarthy (Button)
      Zouma Holding Konsa (Justin Mitchell)
      Salah JRod Son Grealish (Bissouma)
      DCL Werner Kane

      If I WC I'll do Salah > Bruno this week then get Salah back as well as city players when I WC.

      1. Captain Scarlet
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Is a WC necessary next week? I'd much rather hold and maybe take the odd hit.

        I'd do Salah to Bruno and then reassess next week. The rest of your front 8 are fine for this week, and the majority for the weeks after too.

        Maybe a tweaking of defence this week or next?

        1. JollyGoodYellows
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Cheers. I'm eager to get city players in for their decent run so do you think if Indont WC I should bring in KDB this week so I don't end up taking a -8 next week?

      Bowen

      Have the latter in draft but tempted by the former.

        It's not, he's already fallen once. Flagged players drop at a slightly slower rate, I think.

            TM370 has been talking about Everton's downturn in form and whether it was just caused by Richarlison's suspension. A timely piece, given Everton's great little fixture run we're entering.

              Next CA to go up will be an Eliteserien one from ReindeerHotdog, for those playing that game.

              Could do Burke to Jota -4 to cover Salah/Wilson but leaves serious future benching headaches. Worth it or do something else removing Foden/Salah? Son -> KDB GW10.

              Attack would be:
              Salah Jota Foden Son Grealish
              Wilson Kane DCL

              Start Wilson or Coufal?

                If it were me, I'd go with Coufal.

                Coufal will play, and Sheffield United have bebe poor in attack. Wilson may not even start (could do), and Chelsea have been fairly solid at the back.

                Newcastle are one of our bogey teams though!

              Jurgen Klopp on Mohamed Salah: "He is probably back [in Liverpool] today. When you have a negative test, the process really starts. He is in a good place, feels well, no symptoms, so that's all fine."

              Doesn't really tell us anything

                Reading between the lines still positive, until test comes back negative?

                Then,

                The pair will now return to the UK, where they will be tested on arrival and must complete their 10-day isolation period, as outlined by the UK government's coronavirus rules.

                  So 2 matches 100%

                  Of course not - 10 days from 1st positive test

              2. Stupendous
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                He had a positive test yesterday which means by law he has 10bdays to isolate even with further testing and no symptoms.

                That puts him out for the Brighton match by my reckoning.

                Meaning out a minimum of 2

                  Yes, look at Ronaldo he was positive for ages!

                  1. Stupendous
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    But forget positive tests. As of right now, 10 days puts him out a minimum of Leicester and Brighton

                2. FPL_Motty
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  It's 10 days isolation from the first positive test. If he then tests positive every day after and then tests negative on the 10th day, he's fine.

                  1. Stupendous
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    He tested positive again yesterday jesus

                    1. FPL_Motty

                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      You're not really getting it are you. From the first positive test. Testing positive yesterday is still within the 10 days initially so doesnt really have any significance. If he tests negative before 23rd then he will be cleared to train. Thats why he's on a plane back to liverpool today..

                      Jesus, read correctly - it's 10 days FROM 1ST positive test! Not from the first negative test.

                      From the FIRST positive test, my guy.

                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Well that's bloody stupid

                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      It was also stupid that they let him fly while having positive test but it is what it is. In my opininion very likely he plays against Brighton

                      Or it's factored around the fact you become non-contagious after a period?

                        It's all a load of bollocks anyway so who knows.

                        I don't trust a word of it from any of them.

                  No. 10-day count starts from the 1st test. If any test comes after 23rd, he will be straight in for training. Same happened with Telles. But he has a chance of getting more positive tests which may rule him out again.

                4. FC Hakkebøf
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  I think the requirement is 10 days isolation from the first test. If he test negative within those 10 days he will be clear to play Brighton, no?

                  1. FPL_Motty
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Yes. I'm not really concerned about Leicester, its the brighton game I care about. I think he's got a good chance of making that and I dont want to waste 2 transfers taking him out and bringing him in

                    1. Radzio
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 1 Year
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      That's exactly my way of thinking - I think it's a good chance he starts against brighton. Awfully scared not to have Bruno though but I think I will take that risk

                        Oh yea Bruno at home vs West Brom is mouth watering, not.
                        People are so blind sighted by last weeks points that it’s actually scary, and ignore what’s right in front of them.

                What did you expect? It's not like he has a Crystal eight ball that predicts when Salah will test negative

              Urgh my options are
              A) Keep Salah, play Coufal. I won't have a bench if I do this
              B) -4 Salah to Mane

              A sucks if he's out more than 1 game. B sucks if he's out for just 1

                        I think Mane is the best option for me if I remove Salah but still... Unlikely to pay off if he's out for just one game

                          Just do what you don't want to do but is the sensible option. Get KdB. You can hokey cokey him around his great fixture and Salah's GW12(C) and you're protected against any small risk of him hauling against spurs. Don't overthink it for the potential upside of what, 5-10 points for Coufal

                            Im not getting kdb regardless. It's Mane or nothing
