Is it time to take captaincy punts as FPL premium assets continue to blank?

I’m writing this article in quite a good mood.

Despite having Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) on my bench and not taking a hit for the mighty Ilkay Gündogan (£5.7m) as I planned, the second half of the season has started pretty well for me.

João Cancelo (£5.9m) has finally delivered on all of his promise and Raphinha (£5.4m), who I’ve had for what seems a decade, got me a nice double-digit return.

I’m really hoping a decent Gameweek 20 can be the catalyst in my average season and I can start getting some decisions right. The last few seasons have seen me struggle until around this point and then I’ve managed to turn it around – so here’s hoping I can pull that off again this year.

I’ve got a plan going forward, so here it is:

Operation Target Everton and Manchester City players

Sky Fantasy Football: Sticks and Stones? Who to bring in before the Overhaul? 2

You don’t need to be an “expert” (and I’m certainly not) to know that a) Man City are pretty good and b) we should probably get in some of into our teams.

The question is, who do we go for?

Going with two defenders from the same team normally fills me with fear, but I don’t have any concerns when it comes to City. Going three at the back is also an option, where rotation looks less likely with the likes of John Stones (£5.1m), Ruben Dias (£5.9m) and of course Cancelo all looking strong.

Ederson (£6.0m) is the most nailed on player in the whole team – but getting in an expensive goalkeeper and missing out on defenders with an attacking threat, or limiting yourself to not being able to move for a midfielder, does not seem sensible to me.

For me though, I think it’s now time invest in a Man City midfielder and, Kevin De Bruyne’s (£11.9) has paved the way for quite a few options to come into the reckoning.

Mark and I talked extensively about Gündogan on FPL BlackBox and it was nice to see those who took a punt on him rewarded straight away.

Cancelo finally delivers big haul as Gündogan shines in KDB's absence 18

His stats are brilliant this season and any fears of him playing too “deep” were allayed with a fantastic performance against West Brom. He’s my pick of the lot. As my fellow Top Gun Luke said to me, if Gündogan was valued at £11m, people wouldn’t have hesitated to get him in and would probably have captained him against West Brom. I think he’s right, the German being such a cheap price, leaving people with lots of money in the bank and no idea what to do with it, probably puts people off.

Gündogan’s form doesn’t mean that players such as Raheem Sterling (£11.5m), Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) and Phil Foden (£6.3m) should be completely off people’s radar though. In fact, this might be the time to grab two midfielders, rather than two defenders. This would make the most of what promises to be a rather incredible run of games for City, likely involving lots of Double Gameweeks – and the likes of Sheffield United (home) and Burnley (away) who you would expect them to steamroll.

Everton

Returning Digne can help Everton's attacking assets return to form in Gameweek 20

So, along with my three City players (most probably Stones, Cancelo and Gündogan), I’m also looking at Everton who have literally just scored a goal against Leicester as I write this (it must be a sign).

They currently have two games in hand, have a couple of good fixtures to come against Newcastle (home) and Leeds (away) and crucially, they’ve got their players back. Losing the likes of James Rodriguez (£7.7m) and Lucas Digne (£6.0) is enough to unsettle any side – but these two are back and looking class when I see them play.

I’m hoping that this means extra service for Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and he can get back to his early-season form. Digne is playing on the left of midfield tonight. I’m going to find it very hard to resist him, knowing his quality and with the upcoming fixtures and this new potential out-of-position classification.

I think I’ll be getting both Digne and Calvert-Lewin in my team this week.

Time to take some captain punts

Calvert-Lewin offsets longest goalless streak with another Fantasy assist

It was a really interesting chat with Mark on BlackBox about how myself and most people I know are much more likely to take a punt on transferring in a player rather than rolling the dice with a captain option.

There’s an element of fear when it comes to captaincy, but this season should be teaching us to perhaps think outside of our normal realm. The likes of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) and even the ever-reliable Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m) have all let us down on occasion and with the likes of West Ham, Leicester, Everton and Aston Villa surpassing our expectations, I believe it is time for us to start widening the net.

The likes of Cancelo and Gündogan were overlooked this week as people (myself included) flocked to Bruno Fernandes, who became the most captained player ever in a Gameweek (and the full-time whistle has just gone, he’s blanked at home to Sheffield United!!!). The logic of Fernandes was completely sound of course, but there is huge potential to get ahead if you can get the captaincy call right.

The captaincy allows us to roll the dice for one week and if we want to elevate our seasons to the next level, getting on the right end of some of these calls could be a great way to rise up the ranks.

It’ll be a fortnight until my next article, so I’m planning on mixing things up a bit and captaining my City and Everton players, who at this point, are likely to be flying a bit under the radar when it comes to captaincy and will hopefully mean I can maximise their potential in the games ahead. One of Gündogan or Calvert-Lewin (or maybe even Digne if I’m feeling particularly brave) is likely to be my captain in three of the next four Gameweeks.

I’d feel really good about captaining a Leicester player this week against Leeds too. Either Harvey Barnes (£6.8m) or my favourite player, James Maddison (£7.2m). I think I’d swing for Barnes in this one though as I expect Phillips to do a good job on Madders, with Barnes causing havoc down the wings. I think I need to prioritise getting Gündogan in this week, but if I had a transfer spare, it would likely be captain Barnes for me.

The biggest test for my new brave outlook on captains will be the Spurs vs West Brom game in Gameweek 23. With the Baggies conceding goals for fun it will be hard to back against Son Heung-min (£9.7m) or Harry Kane (£11.3m).

Can Chelsea can get their act together so we can consider one of their players versus Sheffield United? Or maybe Bamford can find his shooting boots again before they entertain a pretty woeful Crystal Palace side. Man City also play at Anfield in what could be a title-deciding match – we’ve seen goals in this fixture before, so depending on the Liverpool’s centre back status, the likes of Gündogan may still be a shrewd move.

    Used my 2FT. G2G or anything worth a hit?

    0FT 2.1itb
    Martinez
    Robbo, Dias, Stones
    Salah (v), Bruno, Son, Gundogan (C), Soucek
    DCL, Antonio
    (Johnstone) (Bamford, Dallas, Coufal)

    Cheers!

      good to go mate. having 2FTs is huge for this GW

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Yeh I was very glad to have them!

        Did Vardy, Raph > DCL, Gundo

        Hopefully will pay off.

        There’s a couple of punts that could be worth a -4 but it’s a gamble (Digne, Rich, Barnes) so prob better to play it safe

    2. mikess

      Snap apart from Holding over Dallas, the 14 other exactly the same. Even sub order

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Nice!

        Did you make any moves to get there or you rolling FT?

      2. Don Kloppeone

        Your linked team must be wrong then!

  2. Bennyboy1907
      5 months, 27 days ago

      Raphina >>> Son
      Adams >>> DCL
      Worth a -4?
      If not -4 then which one?

      1. Prison Mike
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Prefer Adams -> DCL this week

      2. Bennyboy1907
          5 months, 27 days ago

          What about raph to son? Not worth a -4? 1 playing lecister and are out of form other playing Brighton all be it without Kane

      3. Prison Mike
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Adams & Semedo -> DCL & Rudiger (-4)

        Worth the hit?

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          No

        2. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Adams to DCL yes, imo Rudiger is still an uncertainty, so I would wait before bringing him in

        3. Bennyboy1907
            5 months, 27 days ago

            First one and hold

              Yeah, this! I like the Maddison shout especially, and nice to see a Rich sighting 🙂

          Anyone else forced to start Chris Wood this week? Not happy but can see him scoring against Chelsea tbh

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            Rudiger is dire in the air

            1. BenDavies
              • 8 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Yeah exactly. Hopefully Tuchel continues starting him over Zouma. Thiago Silva isn't exactly good in the air either as he's a bit short.

              1. Sanchit
                • 6 Years
                5 months, 27 days ago

                He's 6 feet

            Didn’t think people in the top 1k would do such a thing

            1. BenDavies
              • 8 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Who am I to doubt Sir Chris Wood

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          Kane looked absolutely fine walking off; odd to see such an early diagnosis..

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            I benched Son earlier in the season after Jose said he was out. Surely couldn't happen again

          2. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            He does have that recurring ankle issue that flares up from time to time though... remember he once missed 6 weeks because of it (last year?)

          3. Carefree Crew
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            I'm sceptical it being Jose. Immediately after a defeat, it wouldn't be the first time he exaggerated a players injury & then surprisingly the player is available earlier than predicted.

            Yeah think its a bluff,maybe miss one game its my guess.

          Choose one to get rid off for the next 2 GWS:
          A. Wilson
          B. Bamford

          1. GreennRed

            • 4 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            I was planning on Wilson, but in the end I sold Bamford
            Wilson scored 16 points last time I sold him, and scored 12 points in each of the reverse fixtures for EVE and CRY
            I also brought in Digne, so selling Wilson would have been asking for max punishment!

            1. HashAttack
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 26 days ago

              Should have followed my gut - Benched Wilson 🙁 .. and then moved him to second on my bench 🙁

            Seems like there's a high variance on points this week. Lots of hauls causing the spread.

          DCL Antonio

          (Foster Holding Coufal Riedewald)
          bank: 8.4m, FT: 0

          Worth a hit?
          A. Riedewald -> Son
          B. Dallas/Holding -> Digne

            • 4 Years

            I'd do A. So many midfield options, you need 5 playing

        11. mlm
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          -4 for....
          Kane => DLC
          Raphinha/Saka => Salah/Mane

          1. A-L
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Who's 1st bench at the moment? Need further diagnosis on Kane injury but if next best is gonna score 2, worth a go on DCL

            1. mlm
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              The 1st bench would be one of saka/raphinha/bamford/wilson

              1. A-L
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 27 days ago

                Strong bench - I'd even start Kane just in case Jose is pulling another sneaky trick and keep the 4 points.

                1. mlm
                  • 2 Years
                  5 months, 27 days ago

                  Just depends how to get DLC

                  1. A-L
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    5 months, 27 days ago

                    Then it would be for Kane - the risk of missing out on a Kane start would be pretty low but still worth waiting for news

        12. Arctic monkeys
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Really gutted, having a nightmare of a season. And brought Kane in for Werner yesterday because I was going to be priced out of the move.

          Take a hit to remove him or play Mitchell ?

          1. DBossman_2000
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Did the same mate, fuming but only myself to blame! I would wait to see if there is a different diagnosis closer to the game in Jose's press conference because these quotes seem to be his reaction but he has a history of exaggerating so I wouldn't do anything rash just yet! Mitchell also has a good game against goal shy wolves so tbh I would just play him.

            1. Arctic monkeys
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Big blow that, and it's the first early transfer I did this season I think. Cheers mate

            • 6 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            He could be out for a good few weeks... Not like you're going to lose any value

          3. Wılly
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Fair enough if he had already played his match this gameweek but you're really playing the odds if you transfer in a player who is yet to play

        13. Casual Player
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Thinking about taking a hit to get Cancelo this GW

            Once I get past the irrational view of not wanting to bring in a guy immediately after his likely best score of the season, my only reservation is that it locks me into 2 Man City DEF and only 1 ATT. I think a 2nd Man City ATT (Sterling/Foden) could still be a better than Cancelo down the road with the likely DGWs

            Interesting in peoples thoughts on how they want to manage Man City assets through the next 3-6 GWs

            1. Dwotle
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Their defence is the best in the league, so that's where my investment is. They beat WBA heavily, sure, but it wasn't so long ago when they'd win games 1-0 or 2-0. Get Cancelo for the best of both worlds.

              1. Casual Player
                  5 months, 27 days ago

                  Thanks mate, after having a closer look that's the way I'm leaning.

                I'm happy with the double defences, there's a lot of other good non-City options for midfield, not so much for defence

                    True. Other than KdB -> Gundo I haven't made change to MID since GW12, and there are many options if I need to.

                    It actually seems straightforward in the end. Don't love hitting, but this is high probably to pay off in 1 week, and at worst 2.

                        I took a -8 for Cancelo in gw15 - Sold Chilwell to buy Walker early and then had to sell Walker to get Cancelo the same gw. Cancelo has scored 40 points to Chilwell's 19 points over the 6 matches

                    Double defence has definitely been the play but their great fixture run is coming to an end soon

                  Last minute change before the deadline to do Brewster to Kane for a hit just to get ahead of the game so I could get Cancelo for free this gameweek. Pure anguish.

                  Luckily I would of played Coufal over Soucek this week if I didn't make the move. Would of felt worse if I felt I was set on Soucek starting.

                    Could've been covid, could have been injury just as easily - I'm ignoring chasing value this season and it's working well

                      Sterling or Barnes?
                      Have Gundo and Cancelo. If I don't get sterling I will have double city defence instead.

                        5 months, 27 days ago

                        I went Sterling but that's only because I am chasing big time, paid off last week will it this …..

                          I'm chasing too. But Barnes is equally differential in my league. Think I'm leaning towards sterling. Easy switch to kdb then too if I want to

                            Exactly my thought process or even a bit of Mane action as I dropped Salah last GW

                        Barnes

                          Would you have Barnes over grealish for a couple of games? My midfield is:.
                          Grealish, Salah, Bruno, Sterling and Gundo.
                          Just feels wrong putting Barnes in instead of any of those. What you reckon?

                            I went Rashford to Barnes - manly for the next two fixtures. Didn't consider Grealish, but I have Watkins

                        Barnes, City double def is better

                          5 months, 27 days ago

                          Sterling and double defence or gundo?

                          1. Joggers Nipple
                            • 11 Years
                            5 months, 27 days ago

                            Gundo for me

                      4. A-L
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        5 months, 27 days ago

                        Doubly City defence sounds ideal. Your Sterling could go to Son

                        1. Kay317
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          5 months, 27 days ago

                          I did have son originally but with kane out and seeing them play tonight sterling looks a more attractive prospect.

                          1. A-L

                            5 months, 27 days ago

                            Son did well without Kane last season and scored today before it was disallowed. Another few decent chances too despite their setup and playing the champions (Liverpool back to normal it seems)

                      Best GW rank of the season, finally back in 1m where I haven't been since GW2, shocker of a season.

                      Should I get Cancelo, Dias or Digne and why? (have Stones)

                      Cancelo - might haul again, have a feeling he can be rotated soon
                      Dias- more nailed I guess
                      Digne- nailed and next 2 games are nice

                        • 11 Years

                        Dias

                      2. Casual Player
                          5 months, 27 days ago

                          Definitely Cancelo over Dias, especially if you already have Stones.

                          Cancelo v Digne is closer IMO

                        • A-L
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          5 months, 27 days ago

                          Cancelo if you have enough of a bench to cover a no show, otherwise Dias. Digne if you want a differential though.

                          Stones or Cancelo.

                          Laporte has already eased back on the bench.

                        C. Coufal to Shaw, want long term to cover mini league but no need this week?

                              Yep don’t bother going near smith rowe until see what happens there

                                Went Anguissa as nailed and unlikely will be too many bench points to cry over like a Soucek?!!

                          Find a space in your mid for Saka / Soucek / Gundo assuming you don't have all. Value on mids is so good at the moment

                            Have Raphinha in that spot at the moment but could become a Soucek / Saka at some point? Have Sterling as City mid with Cancelo & Stones.

                              Could get a few games from Firmino to see if form holds up then use as a makeweight for Anguissa. Raphinha looks decent too so wouldn't rush to get rid. You have 7 decent attackers which is what matters

                            Johnstone
                            Cancelo / Justin / Stones
                            Salah / Bruno / Sterling / Raphinha
                            DCL / Firmino / Antonio

                            Martinez / Anguissa / Dallas / Coufal

                        Kane to who?

                        Is Richarlison looking better than calvert?

                          Smith rowe first name on the sheet at the moment

                            Odegaard coming in will limit his hours

                          Depends on your team. DCL/Watkins and upgrade elsewhere if necessary?

                        How come DCl is shown 0.00 on fpl statistics?
                        Did he already rise in price this night?

                          Why would he have risen when he’s been injured and blanked

                        1 FT and 6.1 ITB

                        McCarthy
                        TAA Dallas Mitchell
                        Salah Son Bruno Gundo Raphinha
                        Bamford Antonio

                        (Nyland Coufal Lowton Brewster)

                        Lowton to Cancelo and play over Mitchell looks an easy decision here?

                        Is starting Areola over Martinez being too clever or wise move?
                        Are vs wba
                        Mart vs sou

                          I probably would

                          I've the same dilemma. Starting Areola and Targett to spread the risk.

                          I started Martinez over Sanchez this GW and it didn't work out.

                            yeh I had Areola (and Soucek) on the bench this week

                              That stings

                          5 months, 27 days ago

                          Fulham have improved defensively and you'd think Southampton's attack is better than West Brom's.

                          So you're justified in picking Areola over Martinez, especially after Villa just conceded 3 to Burnley.

                          I assume he'll have scans and we won't know anymore until then.
