Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Blank Gameweek 18?

Fantasy Premier League managers face a difficult choice for the Blank Gameweek 18 captaincy.

Even before Monday’s fixture rearrangements for Spurs, Fulham and Aston Villa, differentiating between Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) was proving challenging for many.

Now that Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.8m) have been handed a favourable home fixture against underprepared opposition the debate has been thrown wide open.

More than ever, Fantasy managers need some help with the armband, which is where the Captain Sensible article comes in.

As always, we will look into the best options’ underlying statistics, comparing them against the defensive data of their upcoming opponents using the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area.

    as an Arsenal fan, I really dont trust our defence to keep out Zaha, dont get why everyones choosing Arsenal defence over Newcastle who are playing a team that cant score

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Some rubbish about, "Sheffield United NEED to win".

    2. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I’ve gone double Arsenal defence since I’d rather have 3 City attackers, Tierney offers attacking output and Leno is only 4.9

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Darlow is 5.0

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      We’ll score

      1. Pépé Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Who do you think starts up front this week?

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Brewster and Burke. Maybe mcgoldrick and Brewster

    4. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I think the Tierney pick is based on some attacking returns too, though definitely overhyped from the WBA game. Leno because Darlow isnt nailed. Those who picked Holding could opt for a Newcastle defender I guess

  2. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Leno
    Cancelo - Tierney - AWB
    KDB - Sterling - Bruno - Son - Saka
    Kane - Wilson

    (Steer) (Mitchell - Davis - Douglas)

    Any suggestions for my FH side or is it good to lock in? Cheers and good luck!

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Love it. Crazy tv wtf

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Haha cheers, was surprised to fit the premium defenders but used Salah and other cash cows for the midfield

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I like that you're leveraging your high TV.

      It's nice. Although I wouldn't have double Arsenal defense. Would rather have Dier or Lloris in there.

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thanks, yeah I did find myself trying hard to fit AWB and Tierney in there for the premium attacking output, but could settle for Dier as Spurs more likely to keep the cleanie

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Is Sterling + Saka better than Rashford + Lacazette?

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Close, I already own Rashford moving forward so though I’d pick u Sterling for the one off, and Saka good value at that price

  3. fish&chips

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I haven't but your comment is still naive.
        Plays once in gw18 and twice in gw19.

        1. OneDennisBergkamp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          very much doubt he plays both in 19

        2. Ruth_NZ
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Does he?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He's also scored in his last 3 away games at Burnley, for what that's worth

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I hate these kind of stats.
          When will people understand there's something called spurious correlation!

        Pogba injured, cheaper than Rash. Will play most minutes.

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Cheers, kdb rise hurts as wanted to do Salah to kdb for the dgw. Adams down means likely straight swap for Antonio for the dgw :/.

      Also Carroll will outscore Wilson this week.

              He's lamenting that KDB will be more expensive when his FH squad reverts back to normal for gw19

    5. Gabbiadini

      Cheers, was expecting more.

      Thx Ragabolly.

      PS I like your planner, much nicer than MS Excel before going to sleep 😉 but one minor bug to fix (if you feel like it) is that it needs "add funds" option. It didn't allow me to by a player I did afford. (Easy to handle by choosing another cheaper player from same team now though.)

      1. Ragabolly

        Cheers! If you click start over/reset plan, it will give you a box to increase your budget because of any early transfers you made.

        1. Ragabolly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          But you're right, I should just make it clearer and add it within the page

          1. Baps hunter

            The issue is that people perhaps don't follow or remember price drops of the players they sold early. Not a big thing, but perhaps more user friendly if there was a possibility to add cash later or simply "ignore cash" button.

            Predicting price changes is impossible, but it might also be handy for those who know that their target player later is going to drop in price. Possibility to have negative mitb would also show how big downgrades are needed elsewhere.

            But good work and thx! (had been planning an app like this with some extra features myself, but to plan and to do are very different matters)

            1. Ragabolly
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Yeah I might revert to some ignore cash option. I will tweak the tool sometime this week and will keep your thoughts in mind

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Yes, I did find after resetting my team 🙂

      Well done on your fpl planner. Best and most effective fpl tool I have seen. Fair play. Well designed, easy to use.

        Extremely glad you found it that way! I went through so many design ideas till I reached the final one, so glad you find it simple and effective 🙂

  7. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I have two more trades to make, Forster to Fabianski and Mitchell to Dias/Cancelo.

    I have already taken a hit but may as well cop another and none next week as City v Bri is better than Mitchell v Ars considering I am not using the FH?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Only potential downfall could be losing out on a Mitchell 0.1 if he rises between now and getting him back in after gw19.

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years

      Anyone?

    Is Aurier expected to start with Doherty out?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Is Doherty definitely out?

        am i wrong? how long was his suspension?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          maybe just missed the FA cup game.

      No suspension/flag?

      1. Nice to Finally Michu

        I think I was mistaken, sorry

    3. Luton_Fan

      He served suspension in lg cup

    4. BaleKaneSon
        1 month, 19 days ago

        As a spurs fan I think he will start. Doherty has been really average lately

    5. Somnus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Lloris, (Steel)
      Cancelo, Stones, Tierney, (Mitchell, Fernandez)
      KDB, Bruno, Son, Saka, (Burke)
      Kane, Lacazette, Wilson

      Any improvements?

      Lloris or DDG maybe?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Seeing this makes me want Wilson over Gundo now. Grrr

    6. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Is this bad thinking?

      If I avoid Wilson and he scores I’ll be annoyed for Fpl and other reasons. If I get him and he blanks then atleast it means we’ve hopefully not conceded many... thoughts?

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'm in the same dilemma big bro. I think we go Saka over Wilson

      2. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Defo going saka. It’s now Wilson, Gundo or A Man U defender

      3. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Was thinking a similar thing over. Sheff Utd fans aside, why would you not get Wilson for this fixture. All it takes is a penalty.

        It's so easy to be over clever with these things. Even if Wilson doesn't score, you'd have to say it was the right percentage call.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          True. But if he blanks (which I think he will) then I get an advantage. I suppose it’s only likely to be 5-7 points and the lows will be lower than the highs if I go without. Generally think we only concede from a set piece though

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I've been avoiding Wilson for most of the season because of the Newcastle side, but I can't see a better option around the price unless we hear Pep say Foden will start!

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Fair enough 🙂 you've convinced me. Wouldn't be too mad at a Wilson blank and a cs for us tbf

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Don't let me convince you... I've not even convinced myself yet 🙂

                1. Tsparkes10
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  Just want less to moan about tbh. Think a Wilson haul not owning and a Sheff u loss would be the worse outcome

        2. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          This. Don't let emotion cloud your judgement. If Wilson is a bad pick against this Shef side, he should never be considered as an FPL option 😉

      4. Somnus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Emotional insurance. Not a smart way to play, but sometimes if a player I have is playing Liverpool I will start them so if they do well at least I have FF pros to offset the real world cons!

        Rash: if you want bigger jump in rank with the risk of a bigger drop.

      everyone with these non-playing FH benches, has anyone learnt anything this season?!

      1. Twisted Saltergater

        Pretty sure everyone has Mitchell 😛

      3. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        With all the premium attacker and high chance of top 6 clean sheets, you need a cheap bench to afford them all. think its worth the risk as its only 1 week.

      4. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Burke, Kilman and Mitchell for me

      Some FH18 traps to avoid.

      1. Darlow - I think Dubravka is going to start. It's a similar situation to at Arsenal with Leno and Martinez. Dubravka was one of the best keepers in the league last year and won player of the year, he's not just going to lose his place to Darlow. If not this week then eventually. Still not worth the risk anyhow.

      2. Martial - With Liverpool coming up, I can see either a benching in favor of Cavani or managed minutes for Martial. He also hasn't been in the best of form. Not the best pick imo.

      3. Double Arsenal defense - Not a fan. Crystal Palace have scored 22 goals. That's more than Arsenal's 20. They are a pretty decent attacking side and while Tierney is a good pick because of his attacking threat, would not double him up with Leno.

      4. No United defense. United have not conceded a goal at Turf Moor since 2009. They've had 5 consecutive clean sheets over there. It's a pretty safe CS imo only behind City and maybe Spurs. Certainly better than Arsenal.

      1. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        2. Do those 2 share roughly equal minutes over the next 3 do you think? Need one as DCL replacement

      2. ZLNR
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Two Newcastle defenders to solve 1 but also means not following your 4. Any thoughts?

        1. ZLNR
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          This is for a sterling draft currently. I tried yours a few pages back and was about 3.0m short haha

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Sterling draft is tough unless you have nice TV. Let's see what Pep says. I'm thinking I might not do it anyway though. The sacrifices to go from Rashford > Sterling are pretty steep imo.

            A) Rashford Cancelo AWB Saka
            B) Sterling Dier Lindelof ESR

            1. ZLNR
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Yeah a) is actually better across the board except the Rashford v Sterling pick which could go either way.

              Means I can probably get a 2nd cheap bench player too (in addition to Mitchell).

              See you on here for the presser no doubt

      3. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Darlow should be avoided regardless 🙂
        Agree on martial
        Agree on Double arsenal defence
        Who would you pick out of:
        Stones or man u defender

      4. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Agree with all of these points whole-heartedly. Cannot see Arsenal keep a clean sheet against Zaha. They haven't magically become good after a few wins against West Brom, Brighton and their yearly win against Chelsea

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Partey could be back. Arsenal have been quite tight recently tbf.

      5. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        nice points. I'm trying to find 0.1m in order to lose my double Arsenal defence!

      6. yanky
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        no utd defense worries me but I need to pick either Wilson or Maguire/AWB-- thoughts?

        Lloris
        Cancelo Dias Tierney
        KDB Son Bruno Saka
        Kane Wilson Lacazette

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I don't like Wilson so I'd go Maguire or AWB.

      Any news on sterling's fitness?

      Any chance mahrez gets some decent game time this week?

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I have Sterling. I looked at the man city blue moon forum. The vibe seems to be it was an 'injury' to give him a rest.

        Crucial for me though because if he is out I will only have 6 plus Brewster. Then I will have to decide if a -12 is worth it to get Kane in and finally leave enough cash to dump Brewster the following week.

        Otherwise I will leave it be no FH with 7 plus Brewster.

    18. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Two City defenders or two City MIDs on FH? If Sterling is fit i would have him

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        If I had more funds I think I'd go kdb, Sterling and a defended

        1. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          My TV is suck but i would sacrifice Son for Sterling. Need differential

      2. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'd much prefer two Man City attackers. Hopefully we'll hear something tomorrow.

        1. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Pep have press tomorrow?

    19. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yeah so 2FT, 2.1 ITB, currently 7 starters.

      Sanchez
      Dias Lewis (KWP Coufal)
      Son Mahrez Fernandes (Bowen Bissouma)
      Kane Martial (DCL)

      A) FH?
      B) Manage with 2FT, can do DCL/KWP to Wilson/Cancelo

    20. JasonG123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Any FHers have concerns about Wilson starting given he didn’t play the FA Cup as a precaution? Or am I overthinking it?

        1. ZLNR
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Nice

      1. ZLNR
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I was picking him almost first in the draft every time. Not sure who I like in that bracket otherwise

      2. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He is expected to start, and Bruce needs wins so if it's just a precaution then he should start.

    21. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      What time are pressers today please?

    22. 420king
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Drop Reece James in the draft? No game in 18 and very unlikely to play both in 19. Plus it's a 8 man league so not like there aren't many good options on the market. Thinking Telles for 18 and Coufal for 19.

    23. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Do Leeds and Villa still have a DGW in 19?

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Doubt that Leeds will have

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Damn why’s that

    24. rubberdignerapids
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      FH 18 Good to go?

      Lloris
      Stones / Holding / Dias
      KDB(c) / Rashford / Son / Bruno / Saka
      Lacazette / Kane

      Subs: Steer / Davis / Mitchell / Bernardo

      0 itb

    25. djaddy
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Could do with everyone's opinions please.

        A) AWB and Gundogan
        B) Stones and Saka/ESR

        Would prefer Stones and Gundo, but already have KDB and Cancelo.

        1. rubberdignerapids
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          B) with saka

      • Maxim Tsigalko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Is Sterling likely to be fit?

        Can see City scoring a few and would jump on him and KDB on my FH team!

            If he gives a vague answer of might or is OK that should mean he will play?
