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.

      Small chance it goes ahead this midweek if Shrews players still have covid.

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Thinking Salah.
      Even a goal per game could get about 45 pts.

      I am 75-25 for using it and for KDB

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      Salah

    Where are the rumours coming from that Shrewsbury still having covid issues? Can't find it on google

      All starts with one poster.

    3. Kudo Warrior
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      No news really. Only the coach is stated to have it and is isolating.

      It's Soton manager who says they will be prepared to face Leeds (just in case)

    4. Bring the Cavalry
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      All the players who had the virus are back in training today but the manager isn’t as he’s still ill.
      Sounds like the game is still going to go ahead

      1. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

    5. The Big Fella
      • 5 Years

      What will the implications be if they do have COVID issues?

  4. Nemanja Vidic
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    BB or TC KDB?
    Best def for 5.4?
    1FT 1.5 ITB

    Martinez Mendy
    Regulion Stone Saiss Justin Coufal
    KBD Bruno Son Gundo Saka
    Kane Bamford Brewster

    a) Regulion and Brewster to AWB amd Antonio
    b) Regulion and Brewster to Def 5.4 and Antonio

  5. Rochdale_Cowboy
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Bringing Antonio in for a dgw... he's literally that injury prone he plays double game seasons

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

    Is Mitchell now back in the starting 11?

        Nice grav bud

      2. The Train Driver
        • 6 Years

        What false rumors are you spreading this gw?

        1. Rochdale_Cowboy
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          I only say what I know after the deadline, so as to avoid any issues with the info being completey wrong, and people losing out. I have some big news for tomorrow stay tuned

    2. Kudo Warrior
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Very likely. Roy was bigging up the defense in the last two games in which he played.

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Yes

  8. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Probably only wise to bring in Villa if you have a good bench and are not going BB

  9. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    1FT and £0.7m in the bank. Silly to go without KDB?

    Martinez*
    Robbo*, Dias*, Coufal*
    Salah*, Mane*, Bruno*, Grealish*, Soucek*
    Bamford, Watkins*

    Peacock-Farrell, Dallas, Adams, Balbuana

    A) Balbuana to Stones/James (bench Bamford)
    B) Mane to KDB
    C) Save

    1. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I'd rather Bruno to KDB. But you'd probably want Bruno back. Could roll and risk it too. Not easy.

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Yeah would want Bruno back. Think maybe it's too risky going without.

    What’s wrong with Neto? Why is he flagged?

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Knock

      1. milanista10
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Couldn’t find that in the presser. Is it something serious?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Scout tweets..
          Nuno on Pedro Neto: "He's inside all the players we have to assess. Pedro is doing well, so we'll decide. He had a big knock but is improving. Better today and hopefully better tomorrow."

          • 1 Year

          It's not a muscle injury, just an old fashioned knock. Nuno spoke about it and it didn't sound that bad.

  11. _figu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Best mid up to 5.6 (already own Soucek) for GW19

    A) Lookman
    B) Gundogan
    C) someone else, who?

    Likely to be benched most weeks until 2nd WC

    1. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Lookman

    2. Atters

  13. Manani

    I have this bench
    Mccarthy, Targett, Dallas, Adams
    BB is all dependent on the latest news on leeds/soton game. Should I press benchboost and hope the fpl gods side with me?

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Yeah.. Leeds-Soton won't be this gw though if confirmed after deadline?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Losing Robertson for a hit when he has a double I just can’t abide by.

      1. hogree
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        He could go crazy it is true but Kevin looks so alluring

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Look, if you feel you just can’t go without KDB then do what you have to. Not tempted by Foden?

    3. Danstoke82

      Nope. And likely won't know till after deadline.

  24. Railwayman

    10 months, 27 days ago

    Best duo to own this week:

    A) Soucek + Antonio

    B) Soucek + Mane

    C) Mane + Antonio

    D) Salah + Watkins

    *I am 0.1 short to do Salah and Antonio IN; players who I need to sell are 2 out of these 3: Son, Lacazette, Smith Rowe

    Any advice is welcome.

    1. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      It's a pain to be short of Salah + Antonio but D is easily the best choice for me. Salah best immediate and long term pick. Watkins is actually decent, and a good long term pick. Lets be honest here, Antonio looks good on paper but he may burn alot of people, me included, theres alot of risk involved. Do son + Laca to Salah + Wakins
