Kane and Son start first DGW32 match as Mourinho benches Moura

Harry Kane (£11.7m) comes into Double Gameweek 32 with an exceptionally significant level of backing.

A whopping 95.5% of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers have captained him for their two matches against Everton and Southampton.

Off the back of five goals and two assists since Gameweek 27, the Spurs forward starts at Goodison Park tonight, joined by Son Heung-min (£9.5m) in the starting line-up.

However, those who took a punt on Lucas Moura (£6.6m) have been left frustrated at the first hurdle, the Brazilian left on the bench for what looks like a rather defensive Spurs line-up.

José Mourinho has gone with a three-man defence of Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m), Joe Rodon (£5.0m) and Eric Dier (£4.6m).

Sergio Reguilón (£5.5m) and Serge Aurier (£5.2m) are afforded wing-back roles but Mourinho has gone for three central midfielders between them, namely Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.9m), Moussa Sissoko (£4.7m) and Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m).

Meanwhile, Everton remain without the injured Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m), Richarlison (£7.9m) ploughing a lone furrow for the hosts tonight.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m), Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) and James Rodríguez (£7.7m) support him from attacking midfield.

Double Gameweek 32 Line-ups

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Digne, Keane, Godfrey, Holgate; Allan, T Davies; Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Rodríguez; Richarlison.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (3-5-2): Lloris; Alderweireld, Rodon, Dier; Reguilón, Højbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele, Aurier; Son, Kane.

    I dont care about overall rank when many Tc Kane as I chase a monthly prize.

    You don't have to find a differential if having Kane playing this DGW.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Absolutely everyone is getting his points doubled, some tripled.

      It’s a 9/10 player GW.

    Red arrow if you haven't -

    triple captained 🙁

    TC Kane outscoring my whole team last week : D

  5. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    22 days, 12 hours ago

    At least these Kane goals could be good for Salah owners in terms of the golden boot.

  6. Nightcrawler

    Kane TCers only gaining 13 points points on others (so far). Very good

    But Mega TC success will be TCing a differential that explodes

    1. Chrisitis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Could be 12

    2. Stejson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      But only if the common choice also does the same or worse

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Yes i shd have mentioned

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      The best TC is of course the captain who scores best. Makes absolutely no difference which week it falls in

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Agree. What's the difference if you get these 12 pts in GW1, now or whatever...

      2. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Not really.

        If kane scores 18 this week thats 18 point gain on the most common choice (kane normal cap)

        If u tc a player thats scores 12 points in a week where the most common choice scores 5 points...thats a 21 point gain on those

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          So you'd rather captain a differential for 30 points and not someone else for 45 points? Personally I'd prefer the extra 15 points at the end of the season.

          You're welcome to the 15 point loss 😉

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            22 days, 11 hours ago

            Id need ur cap that week to fail tho. If he does...ill have far more overall points than u when u combine the scores of 2 weeks

            The upvotes suggest ppl fail to understand simple maths

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              22 days, 11 hours ago

              And if I also captain your differential that week I'm still up on you because I got more TC points.

              All you're saying is that you make a gain from captaining a successful differential over a failed template option. That has nothing to do with the best TC option.

              Think it over

              1. Nightcrawler
                • 1 Year
                22 days, 11 hours ago

                The whole argument is based on pickingpicking a tc u wont.

                Ill come back to this post when i use my TC and compare it to thise who used it in kane this week

        2. Guba

        Absolutely right

      4. The Son-dance Kid
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Agreed. Need to look at it holistically. Final overall rank/overall points is based on the whole season, not one gw.

    4. moment
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Yeah, I'm not (as yet) regretting my GW26 KDB TC, because those 30 points were way more differential than these Kane 39.

    5. estheblessed
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      12 points at this stage is not bad. Plus he's got Southampton to go. Could well be 20+ points

    6. Al Moon Yeah
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      The real damage will be done in the Southampton game

      1. Chrisitis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Three days before the biggest game of the season

    7. Guba
      • 5 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Literally not how it works.

      TC success is simply achieving the most points possible, it is irrelevant whether they're a differential or not. In an extreme example if Kane scores 40 points this week, it wouldn't not be a 'mega TC success' because everyone else captained him. It's 40 additional points regardless.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        See above

      2. moment
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        But those points would be worth more to you in rank if EVERYONE hadn't captained Kane. Hence they're more valuable. Hence a successful differential TC is a more successful deployment of the chip.

        1. Guba
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          It doesn't matter. You're playing for the highest point total across the entire season. 40 points is higher than 20 points even if it isn't on a differential. You're talking about the difference in rank in a single game week.

          1. moment

            This isn’t a game about just scoring points. It’s a game about scoring MORE points than other people. Given the EO herding that now happens, it’s a game about maximizing differential gains while minimizing differential losses. TC on a differential in a week where popular captain choices blank will matter more at the end of the season than TC on a player everyone else has. I would rather score 70 points in a week where the top 10k average was 30 than 120 in a week where it was 100.

      3. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        The flawed argument is that relative points are worth more than absolute points - unfortunately that's not how the rankings work.

    8. Kane and Ablett
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        The comparison is TC across weeks not TC vs C within the week, sure there’s a focus on a single gameweek via recency bias because we’re human but we get one TC a season so that’s what you should consider it over, differential or not it’s how many extra points you get when playing the chip

    9. Chrisitis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      78 without Kane in top 10k

      Switched from Kane to Son(c) last second. Chasing and had to do something. That something turned out to be “bad decision nr 593” this season.

      1. beric
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Same, last few hours anyway. Still another game to play man!

      2. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        +1. This season has been a nightmare.

      3. Roy Hudd
        • 4 Years

        If chasing was right thing to do. Unlucky pal. Son could go crazy against saints.

      Kane TC! Let's gooo!

    13. Hadebayor Mum

      22 days, 12 hours ago

      So I get 8 points on TC Kane DGW26. Stupid luck. Still better than Mané last year though, so I guess it’s swings and roundabouts.

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah 24 points from him, and he missed a few sitters. This game he's been gifted 2 goals.

      2. Guba
        • 5 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Just how it rolls. Remember though it's only (currently) 5 points difference, out i'd imgine 1800-2100 point total overall. TC is significantly overrated

    14. Londongeezaa
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      I’m not sure I would be as excited as some for TC Kane.

      The rest of FPL has him as captain anyway. The gains are some what muted.

      1. Pariße
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Still over the course of the season, this has already bern a correct utization of the chip.

      Kane might be the best classical striker in the World atm.

      Lewandowski, Benzema even Haaland come to mind but considering the team he plays for and the consistent performance over the years he might be it.

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Lewandowski is better

      2. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        He’s the best footballer of the lot.

        Lewa probably the best striker.

      3. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Kane the best all round striker while Lewa is the better goalscorer

      4. Kane and Ablett
          22 days, 11 hours ago

          Kane is the best of those and playing in the worst team, eye test and stats we are witnessing greatness... but like Shearer he’s chosen heart over gold

        Kane TC’ers getting all the bounces tonight that last DGWs TC’ers could only dream of.

        Luck factor is bad with captaincy but throw in triple and it’s...

            Easy to say now.

            Some of the chances he missed in that first game Firmino would have scored...

            Massive swings.

          You're missing Hojbjerg. Been one of Spurs' best players. Incredible workrate. If Ndombele had Hojbjerg's work rate then damn, he would be a top player.
