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.

        he was 78,9%.

      2. HashAttack

        The only certainty is the KDB is never going to drop in price

        1. Colonial
          • 5 Years

          Of course he will drop as he is out for weeks, some say at 5 more

      3. HashAttack

        I quite like these totally random sudden price rises - keeps buyers / sellers on edge

    4. HashAttack

      Thanks - Doherty could be a bargain next season

      1. IRBOX ⚽

        He’s crap at Spurs. Will never have the freedom under Jose to get forward like Nuno allowed him to do at Wolverhampton

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          He was OOP at wolves now he’s just a slow defender playing his position for a defense first team

      How on earth did Son rise?

      Without Kane - Son may not be worth a dang

      The 2nd half vs Liverpool was like watching Newcastle

      1. FantasyClub

        Not against Brighton

      I'm playing Sanchez over Martinez this week, screw you, Son!

      Dear FPL Tower, KDB still not dropped? Son going up? Algorithm's my F'n ass. It's tough enough trying to compete without having to also deal with your authoritarian arbitrarianisms. Right, you're in charge but, it's clear to see that there are infrequent yet detrimental price changes(or no changes) that do not make any sense. It causes anger and pain.

      Without Kane not sure

    2. Krafty Werks
      • 6 Years

      I had planned to by removing Firmino but decided to keep now and just go Bamford > DCL.

    In GW 14 I was ranked 1.1m so I took a -20 points hit and now I've clawed my way up to 260k .... sometimes dumping players like DCL, Salah or Bamford when they go off the boil is more important than who you bring in ....

    I think people get too attached to players like Bamford because they bought them at 5.5.m and don't want to sell at 6.7m because you lose too much team value ... but its switching from highly owned players as soon as they go off the boil that helps with big jumps in you rank .....

    Who do people think might be the next highly owned player that is going to go on a bad run? Fernandes? Southampton defense?

      you'd say Bruno already on his poor form, 4 blanks in a row

      1. Danno - Emre Canada
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Got an assist against Fulham

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Fair

        2. POTATO
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Considering he also managed a goal in the FA Cup in amongst those last four EPL matches, I won't be selling.

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      It's also taking the profits at the right time that builds a good TV, so you can afford to buy players back if their form improves - The way I see it is that if the market is driving a players price to drop, it's probably because it's time to sell him

      Going to be tough to keep Salah if he blanks a 7th time

      1. Casual Player
        7 months, 28 days ago

        There would be an exodus on Salah already but KdB/Kane/Vardy injuries means it's a hold.

        I think he'll come good. Might even captain this week.

      2. POTATO
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Because Kane/Vardy/KdB are not available there isn't the financial imperative to sell high-priced players anymore. Most of us have plenty of cash to shape teams however we want, it's only the hits that prevent us from doing so.

    4. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Key is to pick out which of those are proven class - Salah and Bruno, even Zaha and Wilson known to be worth their price. Then for Salah/Bruno it's a matter of time before they get back on track and Zaha/Wilson are lower priority to move out. It hurt to get rid of DCL but was the right move and you might be right about Bamford but I'll probably wait for another madness Leeds score first

      1. Hits Magnet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

      Lacazette could also pay off. Owned by less than 7%.

      1. FantasyClub

    Kane to Antonio seems good? Or Bamford to Antonio and play Mitchell?

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years

      If Kane is confirmed out, which I don’t even know if we will find out, I’ll be doing Kane > DCL/Antonio, and keep Bamford for a while longer.

  15. highsguy

            Sterling I think

          Not sure it’s worth a hit unless we get more news on Kane... but surely DCL stands out vs Newcastle?!

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 28 days ago

            But it’s DCL -4 or start Soucek and no hit

            1. FourLokoLeipzig
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 28 days ago

              Yeah, it’s a close call. I’m keeping Kane and playing Soucek, but bringing DCL in for Brewster with my FT. Think I’d hold in your shoes

    You seriously can't write my fantasy season what a shambles. Kept Trent Mane right up until last GW. Done Trent to Stones mane to KDB who then got injured put in Gun for extra minus along with Podence to Fernandez who blanked -12 in total. For the next game week I done Adams to Calvert and Bamford to Kane-4 who is now injured.

      Unbelievable isn’t it, i cost myself 20 points this week all because I brought Kane in, Soucek laughing from the bench and did Wilson > Kane for a hit, could kick myself!

      Yep! you couldn't make it up 🙂

    6 blanks in a row and Salah has only dropped once, what the!

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Salah is basically running an extortion bracket where you're too scared to sell him in case he knocks you out with a double digit haul

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        haha this made me laugh
        his stats vs west ham are incredible too. think it's 7 goals in 6 matches (or thereabouts)

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Yeah, I can't justify transferring him out this week, especially with the injuries everywhere. But that's been the problem, the only reason he's still in my team is because there's either a fire to be put out elsewhere OR he has a favourable fixture in the next game. Always kicking the can down the road.

      2. Hits Magnet

        • 10 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        I dropped him 2 weeks ago and its painful when liverpool play, he still gets chances but that goal being disallowed tonight was a nice feeling .... but when I dropped him I though I could use all the cash to make up for not having him but now with the likes of KDB and Vardy being injured everybody has cash and my strategy (although working out for 2 weesk) is flawed .... I might have to just bring in Mane to reverse my move ....I'd rather get Mane than Salah now ...

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Yeah everyone has free money available now so it does negate the advantage of dropping Salah. Mane is looking far more lively than Salah. I would honestly drop him too but there are so many other fires to put out right now in my team. I don't mind keeping him for a while longer as he's still highly owned and may be good for the DGW.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 28 days ago

            Maybe even Salah/Mane double up for the DGW!

    Morning,

    with this Kane Injury was thinking of doing the following?

    Kane & Grealish > DCL & Stirling for a -4?

    Thoughts?

    1. Messiah Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 28 days ago

      Not for a -4... Maybe just Kane to Grealish

      1. Messiah Hazard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Kane to *DCL

          Thanks MH

    Should I captain Werner under Tuchel or go with Sterling?

    1. Dwotle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 28 days ago

      No way I'd captain Werner. Not even assured a start at the moment.

      1. Messiah Hazard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Thought of it after seeing the article title - “to take captaincy punts”.

        1. Dwotle
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Punts, sure. Not hail marys.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            😀

    2. TKC07

      Zaha?

      1. Messiah Hazard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        I don’t have him... But could be a good punt...

        My choices are Sterling, Bruno, Son, Cancelo, Werner

        1. Dwotle
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Sterling's a good shout. I feel he'll go big soon.

    3. waldo666
      • 11 Years

      You shouldn't even have Werner in your team.

      1. Messiah Hazard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 28 days ago

        Cant help it as a Chelsea fan 🙂 I am hoping #TuChelsea can get the best out of him. Taking a risk, but after having super bad weeks at beginning of season am stuck in a rut. So am gambling each GW.

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Yeah, I get that. GL.

      Starting Werner is enough but captaining him? What breed are you

    Robertson Stones Cancelo Coufal

      If you are happy with starting 11, save. But B for me, atm.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        Cheers, just thinking it can’t be that bad otherwise he’d have gone off straight away?

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Wouldn’t have subbed off at half if he was good. Kane plays 90 every single GW. Jose sounded concerned

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 28 days ago

          Both ankles are gone. Bad enough with one bad ankle but two?

    Team is flying with huge green arrows on the bounce. Easy save?

    Martinez
    TAA Cancelo Stones
    Salah Bruno Sterling Grealish
    DCL Watkins Bamford

    Forster Coufal Bissouma Kilman

    1. Dwotle

      Yes. Sterling (C)?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 4 Years

        Perhaps DCL

    2. JasonG123

    Think James will start this weekend. Was gonna get Cancelo in which is why I brought in Kane last week for a hit instead of waiting but now he's injured so

  27. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 28 days ago

    Which one of the following would you do?

    A. Bissouma to Zaha
    B. Wood to DCL
    C. Both for a -4

    1. Dwotle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I like A a lot.
