Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Double Gameweek 19?

Fantasy Premier League managers are advised to target assets who play twice in the first Double Gameweek of the season when looking for their next captain.

With each of the current top four clubs, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City, each playing twice during Double Gameweek 19, the most popular premium assets are leading the armband discussion.

As always, we have taken a look into the best options in great detail, using the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area to assess individual form and the state of their opponents’ defences.

CAPTAIN POLL

For the second week running, Manchester City’s maestro Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) leads the Fantasy Football Scout captain poll, this time with just over 37.0% of votes.

The Belgian shares the vast majority of votes with Mohamed Salah (£12.5m, 26.0%), who comes back into our consideration after missing out on a match in Blank Gameweek 18.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m, 7.0%), Jamie Vardy (£10.1m, 5.1%) and Tomas Soucek (£5.3m, 4%) complete this week’s top-five list.

In order to tackle this Double Gameweek captaincy debacle effectively, we will analyse Gameweek 19’s key teams and assets separately, as opposed to focusing on the key matches, as we usually do.

    Would Salah ever be “too tired” to take a penalty in the last minute?

    Doesn’t this tell us all we need to know?

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      That he's getting a last-minute penalty this gameweek?

    2. Well you know, Triffic

      He wouldn't work as hard as KDB to begin with. KDB also was doing high press on the defence and keeper in the 90+ min.

      If you've played footy, you'll know that in the final 10 mins, your legs will be jelly, especially if you play for a Pep team and in midfield.

    3. Old Bull
      • 7 Years

      That last performance has put me off KDB for this week. He did look knackered.

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      He wouldn't.

      Guess it does. Salah(TC)!

    A) McCarthy > Mendy -4

        Salah for me. Well rested with two home games.

      2. Doctor Evil
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Sarah in a future DGW when he has form and better fixtures

        1. Doctor Evil
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    • SALVA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Son, Kane to Salah(c), Vardy -8?

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        First thought was no but that could actually pay off.

      Who to Start
      A- Targett (mci, NEW)
      B- Bamford (BHA)

      1. KUNingas
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        B but tough one

      2. Front 442
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Bamford likely to get a goal and some BP
        Targett an assist against Newcastle at the most and possible clean sheet.
        Do the math

    • Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      A. Ederson, cresswell, antonio
      B. Fabianski, coufal, vardy

      Which one? Kind of stuck thx.

      1. KUNingas
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        A

      2. sentz05
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I’m getting Ederson in but I know he’s crap value. So likely to get 12 points at least

    • KUNingas
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      G2G? Anything worth a hit? 0.7 ITB

      Martinez
      Chilwell, Stones, Coufal
      Salah, Bruno, KDB, Son, Grealish
      Antonio, Bamford

      Foster, Holding, Dallas, Brewster

        McCarty Forster
        AWB stones Dallas cancelo coufal
        Son grealish Fernandes De Bruyne soucek
        Kane bamford Davis

        A Forster , son, Davis > Martinez, rashford, Antonio -8
        B: Forster, Kane, Davis > Martinez, Vardy, Antonio -8
        C save BB and son > salah

        1. KAMARA-COPY

          2 months, 26 days ago

          B

      • Bottleandahalf
          2 months, 26 days ago

          How this for BB team

          Johnston De Gea
          Mee Justin Dias Stones Coufal
          Salah Bruno Grealish Barnes Soucek
          Vardy Watkins Antonio

          1. Bottleandahalf
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Playing FH

              1. Rhodes your boat
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Can’t do both?

                1. Bottleandahalf
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Oh really. D'oh!
                    Thanks for that

            • pundit of punts
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              FHers, what’s the team looking like?

              1. Bottleandahalf
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  Johnston De Gea

                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Too much money on the bench

              2. Ibralicious
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Which move is best for this GW and beyond:

                A) Adams + Bowen + Bednarek -> Antonio + Foden + Dawson (-8)
                B) Adams + Bednarek -> Antonio + Holding (-4)
                C) Adams + Bednarek -> Antonio + Lowton (doubling up with Taylor) (-4)

                Cheers!

                2 more choices

                Captain kdb or salah
                Play targett (double) but 4 yellows possible miss 2nd game or bellerin

                2 months, 26 days ago

                -12 time let's go. Kane, Grealish, Dier, Meslier -> Antonio, Salah, Coufal, Fabianski

                Salah a must so Kane had to go

                Thoughts? Thanks.
                So tempted to FH 3x West Ham defense and x2 City gives you 60 points with clean sheets without including bonus and attacking returns

                This is my team with 4.3 ITB 1FT
                Martinez
                AWB Cancelo Stones

                  I worked out freehit with exact same plan but feel my team stronh enough this week

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Best way to get Salah in?

                A) Kane, Son, Burke -> Antonio, Salah, Soucek (-8) Bench Dallas & Adams

                B) Rashford, Son -> Salah, Soucek (-4) Play Dallas or Adams

              10. Atwood
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                I rate Antonio but isn't it worrying that he hasn't even started since his injury? Can't see him starting both in the DGW.

                1. ChelseaGuy
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  They don't have any other strikers though

                  1. Atwood
                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Good point

                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    They have won and played well still? Antonio could come good but the form or even play time after injury does not look good enough yet.

                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  Think he'll start both and get taken off at 70ish
