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
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Are you using BB?

    3. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

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

    4. hammersp2000

      Yep doing bench boost

    Coufal or Justin?

    1. ExpressoMySonny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Coufal

    2. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Coufal easily

  3. ExpressoMySonny
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Is there any news on Charlie Taylor?

    1. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 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
      9 months, 15 days ago

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

  4. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 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?

    1. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

      They've said nothing about who tested positive.

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        Trezeguet has

  6. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    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

  7. Lallana
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Start one.

    1) Holding
    2) Bamford
    3) Dallas

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

      2

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Bamford easily

      1. Lallana
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        Great. Arsenal have been keeping some cleansheets lately though 🙂

    3. Bonus magnet
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Bum

  8. Redranger
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

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

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 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
      9 months, 15 days ago

      A

  9. bautasten
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Who'd you start:

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

    1. Syd.
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      A

    2. FPLGOOD
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

      A

  10. Dybala10
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    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
      9 months, 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
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 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.

  11. FPL Doctor
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 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

  12. dsefton
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

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

    1. Blanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

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

      1. dsefton
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

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

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 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.

  13. MrCloppity
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Jesus or Kane this gameweek?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Kane

    2. FPLGOOD
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I think jesus slightly edges it

  14. Pitch Invasion
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

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

    Neto > Soucek

  15. Gymer11
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 15 days ago

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

    Dias
    Stones
    Cancelo

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Dias

    2. cuppatea78
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Dias

  16. arndff_
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Soucek or Antonio???

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

      Soucek.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Soucek

    3. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Soucek probably safer.

    4. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Soucek

    5. toerag
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      lol just got antonio. gone triple wham

    6. FPLGOOD
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 15 days ago

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

  17. waldo666
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Currently have no City defence and sick of TAA.

    TAA to Dias?

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

      After this week.

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        Probably the wise move, cheers.

    2. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 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.

  18. nadman89

    mccarthy + targett -> stones + johnstone -4. can do it exactly

    Leeds Southampton cancellation has completely messed up BB planning..

    Scrap BB plans if requires -8 to get 11 DGW and a bench of McCarthy, Bamford, Dallas, Raphinha?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

    2. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I think a chip should be used this week. So TC. Do you also own KDB?

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        Yes

        It's between KDB and Salah for sure.

        Also got Vardy and Bruno but not even contemplating them.

    3. JelliedSpark968
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

    Triple westham defence madness thinking about freehit

    1. Amey
      • 3 Years

      Not at all madness

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

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

    3. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Double is enough imo

    4. hullcityfan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Soucek a must on FH I think

  27. JelliedSpark968
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

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

    1. TMF86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Im debating Kane out to fund it. Already got Son. Insane?

      1. JelliedSpark968
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

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