Captain Sensible

Who is the best FPL captain for Blank Gameweek 29?

Fantasy Premier League managers are faced with a much smaller pool of viable captains than usual this weekend.

Blank Gameweek 29 features just four matches and only one team currently in the top flight’s top six.

Unsurprisingly, Harry Kane (£11.5m) has emerged as the people’s favourite ahead of a trip to Aston Villa but Sunday’s injury to Son Heung-min (£9.5m) has caused some doubts.

As ever, the Captain Sensible article is here to help inform your armband decision.

CAPTAIN POLL

As you can see, Kane’s lead in the Fantasy Football Scout captain poll is a hugely significant one.

After producing five attacking returns in the last four Gameweeks, the Spurs forward has attracted the support of 60.1% of voters.

That lends him a majority of 53.7 percentage points over the second-placed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.5m).

The Arsenal man missed Gameweek 28’s north London derby because of a disciplinary issue although media reports suggest it has been resolved with Mikel Arteta in a positive fashion.

More importantly, across his last four starts, Aubameyang has six goals to his name.

Double Gameweek 25 teams: Leeds - best FPL players, form, fixtures and stats 2

Raphinha (£5.6m) is not far behind in third-place this week with 6.1% of voters selecting him as the best captain for Blank Gameweek 29.

Fulham’s defence has largely improved recently, and Raphinha hs blanked in each of his last three matches, although his most-recent purple patch was not that long ago.

Between Gameweeks 14 and 25, he produced four goals and six assists.

Despite recording two double-figure hauls in the last four matches, Gareth Bale (£9.6m) is backed by only 3.7% in the captain poll.

The Bale fitness latest as his impact on Son and Kane in FPL is assessed

His 56th-minute substitution against Arsenal is likely to be at the back of many Fantasy minds. Bale has not made it past the 69-minute mark in any of his last four Premier League starts.

Even with one attacking return in the last 11 matches, Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) has managed to creep into the captain poll’s top five this week. 3.6% are backing the Fulham winger, perhaps with an eye of exploiting Leeds’ defence who have conceded 1.6 goals per game this season.

Jesse Lingard (£6.1m), Stuart Dallas (£5.1m), Patrick Bamford (£6.7m), Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) and Leandro Trossard (£5.7m) complete the top 10.

    Bale had a lovely view of that as it all passed him by and he stood and admired.

    Despite all this Dier will still maintain his position at the heart of England’s defence

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Nah. Dier is just in the squad as a utility guy and because England are short in the DM position.

  8. lindeg

  9. Bubbles1985
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Still captain Kane and pray there is some sort of bounce back from this?!

    How close is Son to returning?

    1. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I’d say closer after tonight. Mou needs a result against Villa now.

    2. Pariße
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It was a clear hamstring injury, which should take around two weeks but you never know, he might not have torn too many fibers.

  10. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    This is a horrible Zagreb team, got nothing going forward, we are just that bad

    1. Pariße
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Some great technical players in there.

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      That was a good 3rd goal despite how badly Spurs are playing.

    3. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      You are blind?

    4. Chrisitis

      Lloris, Sanchez, Kane only starters from Spurs’ best 11?

  11. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years

  13. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Even for Spurs, this is incredible.

  18. diesel001

    Dinamo GK having one of those games where the more saves he makes the better he gets.

    1. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Croatian no1 GK mate

  19. Pariße
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    I felt bad for Mourinho just now.

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Slap yourself.

      1. Pariße
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Ah thanks, did it too hard though.

    2. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Me, too. For split second.

      1. Pariße
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I just saw him there powerless trying to put the ball into the net in his head with rosy cheeks and old looking.

  20. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    two clear chances and great saves

  21. CRO KLOPP
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Dinamo Zagreb has great talents as always,so is a GK

  22. BeaversWithAttitude
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Wow, what a flurry! What a save! Dinamo just want it more. Go on, lads!

  23. Camzy

    Anyone not watching the Spurs game should turn it on asap. There's drama here. Save of the season contender by the keeper to keep them alive.

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Lloris nerves of steel!

  24. fedolefan
    • 7 Years

    Just put on the match. What craziness there!

  25. Steve The Spud

    Zagreb pushing for another lol

    Only spurs

  26. Giles G
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Worth starting Son on FH in case of a miraculous recovery? Unlikely he would come off the bench right?

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Can’t see Spurs doing much against Villa, better miss for lower $$ imo, don’t be blinded

    2. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      He could start and then be taken off at half time when his injury starts playing up. Too risky imo.

      1. Giles G
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        true

  27. mr messi
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Is Bale on? How does he look?

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Missed a couple of good chances in extra time... I only tuned in during the 80th minute. Not sure if he started.

    2. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      ... came on in the 59th minute.

  28. Pompel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Do I need to get Watkins for DCL now?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Thinking about this move now
