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.

      I’d probably do 1 and 2 but depends who your other keeper is

    2. Redranger
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Are you using BB?

    3. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      1 and 3 yes 2 depends on your other keeper or if part of a benchboost

        Coufal easily

        Is there any news on Charlie Taylor?

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

          Dyche said it'll be tough for him to make the first game. If he plays one it'll end up being Pool

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

          Still a doubt but likely to play at least 1 of the games.

      • Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Who to ship out between:

        A) Bednarek (only 1 game VS LEI)
        B) C. Taylor (might miss both games)

        Cheers!

        Do we have any idea what Villa players will play?

            They've said nothing about who tested positive.

          Would you bench DCL and start Rodrigo or move Taylor to Stones in a back 4?
          Currently have the funds for Son to Kdb but would need to move DCL if doing Taylor to Stones to fund Kdb

        3. Lallana
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Start one.

          1) Holding
          2) Bamford
          3) Dallas

              Great. Arsenal have been keeping some cleansheets lately though 🙂

        4. Redranger
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Who scores more points this GW?
          A) Stones
          B) Coufal

          1. Scots Gooner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Thats a tough one. Stones is the safer pick, but Coufal can get some attacking returns.

            I'd say Coufal has the higher potential.

          2. FPLGOOD
            • 1 Year

            A

          Who'd you start:

          A) Martinez (mci, NEW)
          B) Johnstone (wol, whu)

          1. Syd.
            • 11 Years

          Is there any news on who has COVID at Villa or at least who is fit?

          I have Martinez and Grealish and conscious whether to BB or not...

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

            Saw a post on twitter showing Grealish on a treadmill. Think it was from his Instagram story. Make of that what you will... 🙂

          2. Scots Gooner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I think by the time the game comes round, hopefully most will be able to play. Its still 5 days away.

            If it makes you feel any better, I've both those players and I'm bench boosting.

        7. cnewman7
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Would you BB this team for a -8
          Means Son, Adams and Steer out.
          Will have 13 DGWers.

          Martinez
          Coufal Justin Dias
          KDB Salah Foden Soucek Bruno
          Antonio Bamford

          Mendy Dallas Wood R James

        8. dsefton
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          A) play Tierney
          B) tierney --> James (-4)
          C) Tierney --> justin (-4)

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

            I'm thinking Tierney to Cresswell for - 4 lol. What about that one?

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

              Planning on getting Antonio so would have 3 west ham already (soucek and coufal)

          2. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Stones, Cancelo or Dias are the best.

            If you can't get them due to budget/already have, I'd go James probably.

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

          Jesus or Kane this gameweek?

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

            Kane

          2. FPLGOOD
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I think jesus slightly edges it

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

          Is Neto likely to play? Considering this as my only transfer this week

          Neto > Soucek

        11. Gymer11
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Who’s gonna get the most minutes out of city defence ?

            Dias
            Stones
            Cancelo

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

            3. waldo666
              • 10 Years

              Soucek probably safer.

            4. Gudjohnsen

              • 1 Year
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Depends on your team... for me antonio likely to score more

          • waldo666
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Currently have no City defence and sick of TAA.

            TAA to Dias?

            1. Captain Vantastic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              After this week.

              1. waldo666
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                Probably the wise move, cheers.

            2. doher.ty
                1 month, 15 days ago

                I'm personally banking on TAA having a good week as one of my differentials but I also own Dias so it's a bit easier for me to hold.

                  Yes

                  It's between KDB and Salah for sure.

                  Also got Vardy and Bruno but not even contemplating them.

                  Could be a great idea, especially if you have Coufal and Cresswell for attacking returns.

                Concerned about not having KdB, but would have to get rid of Salah or Bruno so doesn't look like it's gonna happen

                    Not insane at all, given you'd be bringing in Salah

                1) Adams to Antonio
                2) Taylor + Adams > Cancelo + Brewster -4
                3) Son + Adams > KDB + Davis -4
