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
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

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

    2. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      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
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      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
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      He wouldn't.

      Guess it does. Salah(TC)!

    1. sentz05
      • 5 Years

  5. Old Bull
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

    Anyone decided on a TC this week and if so who?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      Salah for me. Well rested with two home games.

    2. Doctor Evil
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

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

      1. Doctor Evil
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Or Salah lol

    3. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      Salah locked in

  6. SALVA
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

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

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      First thought was no but that could actually pay off.

  7. pol
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

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

    1. KUNingas
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      B but tough one

    2. Front 442
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 4 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

  8. Luton_Fan
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

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

    Which one? Kind of stuck thx.

    1. KUNingas
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      A

    2. sentz05
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

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

  9. KUNingas
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 4 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

  15. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 4 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)

    1. COUFAL SO GOOD
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      Kdb
      Play targett

  19. JollyGoodYellows
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

    Worth doing Konsa + Anguissa + DCL > Stones + Soucek + Antonio (-8)

    1. COUFAL SO GOOD
      • 4 Years

      Yes, go for it

  20. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 4 days ago

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

    Salah a must so Kane had to go

  21. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

    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
    KDB Son Soucek Bruno
    Kane Bamford Adams

    1. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

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

  22. Pépé Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 4 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

  23. Atwood
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 4 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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      They don't have any other strikers though

      1. Atwood
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Good point

      2. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 4 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. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

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

    3. boroie
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      He played 90 mins last Monday?

    4. OLLY G
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      He played full match in the FA cup. Haller has moved to Ajax. He's the main man.

  24. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

    Crystal Palace has conceded 2 headers from defenders this season.Zouma and Hause.
    Aston Villa has conceded 2 headers from defenders this season.Vestergaard and Ogbonna.

    1. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      Dias time!

      1. wulfrunian
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Or Stones.

    2. ChelseaGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      That's not a big number though? less than 10% of all goals conceded combined

  25. Manani

    Haven’t see Foden in many teams

    1. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      people worried about a benching. If he plays both he's great tho

      1. Old Bull
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Was considering a -4 punt. Might be exciting

    2. Tiki-Taka
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      want him due to his price, but worried about him being rested for 1 of the 2
