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.

      What a terrible buy. He’ll be on the bench more often than not

      1. pundit of punts
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Taking him out for DCL

  2. Gobigorgohome

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Great goal then, if it wasn’t for Firmino’s stupid hands

  3. JJeyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Of course Trent rediscovers his form the first game I bench him and play Robertson insead.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Ouch. That’s harsh, I would’ve done exactly the same if I had the choice. Taa not shown any form at all

      1. JJeyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        yup, classic fpl

  4. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    No Spurs players vs BHA, would you still get Son if Kane is out?

    1. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Not based on that performance but who knows.

    2. acidicleo
      • 5 Years

      I was going to..
      Now may go Leicester instead..

  5. acidicleo
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Salah still under control of zambian witch?
    Didnt watch the match..
    Was expecting some returns when I saw the score...

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Scored but Firmino handball in the build up. Looked better tbf.

  6. Marcin the Pole
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Might just start using a randomiser to select my captain.

  7. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Just need Mourinho to come out and say Kane is injured for him to start this weekend.

  8. konrad.sygula95
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Which option is best?
    A Bamford to Kane
    B Anguissa to Son
    C something else?

    Martinez
    Dier/Justin/Cancelo
    Gundogan/Fernandes/Salah/Grealish
    Watkins/Antonio/Bamford

    Bench: Forster/KWP/Anguissa/Coufal
    1ft 7.9 itb

    1. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 20 days ago

      I'd wait on news about Kane injury before considering bringing any Spurs assets in. Bamford to DCL could be a goer.

  9. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Too soon for Mane?

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Took him out for Son this week, lol. I'd wait.

      Lucky 😉

      Top work though man. That Cancelo captaincy was inspired, wish I'd had the balls to do the same!

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Yes, lucky! But not as lucky as the 646k people ahead as me!

  11. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Any other Foden owners with two City defenders... Considering Foden > Gundogen at all? I'm short of captaincy options and prefer Gundo. Cancelo another (c) option but possibly risky!

    1. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      No. Foden (C) now Kane is probably out.

      1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks. Considered Joao at all?

        1. FPL.team
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          If I knew he'd start I would. Foden coming off on 51m with Gundog last game makes me think Foden should start. If I happen to get any info that Cancelo starts I'd probably captain him, but him coming off on 59m as a defender would really hurt.

    2. Coys96
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      I wouldn't. Foden owners here. Think you're chasing points there. I actually prefer Cancelo to Gundo

      1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • 9 Years

        Get that feeling myself a little bit - Need to calm it a little bit and just take it week by week.

  12. Make United Great Again

    Rashford to Mane/Salah worth -4?

    4. marcos11

      I’m planning on going Rashford > Salah this week l think

  13. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Mane is absolutely bossing the stats for goal threat and creativity after that game.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Missed about 3 or 4 sitters in the first half - no surprise.

  14. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 20 days ago

    Balbuena/Rashford to TAA/Son worth -4?

  15. Flynny

    Hi all....gone from 1.4m to 400k in 3 weeks!

    6mitb. Was looking at Bamford to kane. Is Bamford to dcl looking like the move to make now?

    Martinez (Johnsone)
    Cancelo dias chilwell (dallas coufal)
    Salah Bruno grealish gundog (soucek)
    Antonio bamford watkins

    Thanks

      Yes.

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Well played, that’s an amazing run. Bamford to DCL looks good move to me

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years

        Cheers. Was at 4m at gw6 and felt like season over.

        Feels good!

    What do people think of Son without Kane ?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Bad

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Went well last time, but Son didn’t look good today

      1. slove
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Was thinking this , he’s traditionally done very well when Kane is out but unsure about this time with the new system

    3. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Lost

    4. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Will be a lack of service imo, it’s no coincidence that Kane usually assists Sons goals

      1. slove
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Who do you think comes in for Kane if Son is playing as the main forward to try create chances for him?

    5. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Everyone has watched 45mins where he’s been poor and jumped on it and decided he’s awful without Kane. I’m considering captaining him

      1. Tinkermania
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Absolutely. Son will score more goals now. I remember the last 2 occasions when Kane was out.

    6. Coys96
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Worse - but still ok

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Still ok lol. He’s probably best value player in the whole game

        1. Coys96
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Let's see then - if you're so sure then captain him.

          We had Lo Celso and Dele for Son to play off last season. Son will struggle if we don't have a target man or creator.

          13 of Son's GI this season were because of Kane.

        You don't. I've captained Rhian Brewster every week since GW5 on the back of this logic.

      First early transfer since GW2, I was burned then and I've probably been burned now. Decision making has left the building for me this season it seems.

      Haha yeah I did Vardy to Kane -4 this week as everyone in my league below me has him, I I’d had patience and benched Vardy and fine 3-5-2 I had Soucek first sub!! Hind sight is a wonderful thing!!! Haha

    Son has Brighton and West Brom in the next 3, still tempted to bring in.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      I would. The guy is one of the best finishers in the game and will likely be even further forward

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        On pens too

    2. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      People are still overlooking the fact that the WBA fixture comes 43 hours after the Chelsea game. It's a ridiculous turnaround and there is no way Spurs will be at their best. Even if Son starts both there'll be so much rotation around him

  22. abhirup780

    After getting 15 points from Mané would you

    A go with plan and get Son for next game
    B Stick with Mané

      congrats mate!

      Stick for sure. Not sure Son will be that good without Kane either

    2. Tinkermania

      Not for Mane. Son is a good option but shift someone else.

      Stick. If Kane is out then Son loses much of his supply line. Mane is a streaky player so I'd bet on him going on a nice run now.

    Tough week with Soucek as first sub (I played Che bleeding Adams over him!), and both Son and Salah having goals disallowed tonight. Clinging on inside the top 100k. Fancy being a bit more aggressive this week. Thoughts on this -4?

    Martinez
    Dias - Stones - Coufal
    Gundo (C) - Son (vc) - Salah - Bruno - Soucek
    Antonio - Bamford

    Subs: Forster; Adams; Ayling; Taylor.

    £7.7m ITB and 1FT.

    Assuming Sir Harold of Kane is crocked I'm now thinking Adams -> DCL and Ayling/Taylor -> Digne for a -4.

    I can't see any of my other defenders besides Stones & Dias keeping a CS, and hoping Digne can make up that -4 over next four game weeks given he's essentially playing left wing.

    Considering Chilwell as well but the Tuchel factor unnerves me, a little.

      Good plan but better switch captain to one of the premiums that blanked instead of someone who hauled last time.

    Members - how would I see stats for chances conceded from corners? Dias an outside shout for captain this weekend?

    Also, chances conceded from left flank, is this down the defending teams left back‘s side (or right back?)

    Cheers

      Hold up, I'll make my stats table public - I'll call it 'for SaintMatt'

        I’m a member - I’m just asking how you do it. For those interested, City 3rd most attempts and 2nd most goals direct from corners.

        Just wondering how you find the comparative stats for defending corners?

        1. Coys96

          i do it by making a stats table.. you can see it here: https://members.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/public-stats-tables/view/48342/

          You go to 'my stats tables' and then 'create table'

        Sorry- just realised you were being extremely helpful (and not sarcastic) - thank you! Long day haha

    If Kane is injured longer term, Spurs assets ( = Son ) much less appealing for me at least. With several budget options in midfield there's cash to be spent on defence as well. This could be a turning point where one might benefit from WC to restructure their team. Do you think WC is too valuable tool in navigating blanks to be used reactively?

      Unless you have no city assets and 3 Spurs assets among other issues or something crazy like that I dont see a wildcard being justifiable at all

        Nah, not that bad. Guess I'll hop on with a hit or two.

    Which combo would you prefer to have over the next few weeks? (both require the same amount of transfers)

    A) Son + DCL
    B) Mane + Bamford

    For option A Son could also be Grealish or a Leicester mid instead

    Obviously I should of played Soucek and Raphinha over Salah and Bruno this week...
