Captain Sensible

Who is the best FPL captain for Triple Gameweek 35?

The Gameweek 35 captaincy has completely turned on its head now that we are planning for an unprecedented Triple Gameweek.

Manchester United play Aston Villa (away), Leicester (home) and Liverpool (home) between now and Thursday, thrusting Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) back into the limelight once more.

Still, there are concerns about how many Red Devils will actually play three times, which means it is still worth considering some of the Double Gameweek options on offer from other clubs.

As always, the Captain Sensible article is here to answer your captaincy questions and a whole lot more. In order to help you settle your conundrums, we analyse extensive data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, which is why only those with a valid subscription can access it in full.

CAPTAIN POLL

Unsurprisingly, Manchester United’s Portuguese midfielder has dominated the vote, having gained nearly 60.0% of votes since we reset the poll in the wake of Wednesday’s groundbreaking announcement.

Behind him sit Leicester City’s in-form Kelechi Iheanacho (9.8%) and colleague Mason Greenwood (7.0%).

The top-five list is completed by Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) and Marcus Rashford (5.7% and 2.8% of total votes, respectively)

In order to tackle this week’s captaincy debate effectively, where only certain teams play more than once, we will focus on those clubs and their assets separately.

    Watkins or DCL?

    Greenwood or zaha or JWP?

    1. MMN
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 22 days ago

      D & G for me

    2. mash
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 22 days ago

      DCL
      Greenwood worth a punt, JWP safer for security of starts

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 22 days ago

      DCL (v fine margin) + Greenwood

    4. MightyGar
        5 months, 22 days ago

        JWP if going Greenwood means you need to take a hit in GW36 to field 11, otherwise Greenwood.

        Watkins Vs DCL is close, so go with the majority above

      • estheblessed
        • 6 Years

        Ive got DCL, Greenwood and Zaha

      Who to get in, already on a -8 (getting in Bruno, Gwood and...

      A) DCL
      B) Antonio

      1. The White Pele
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        has to be A

      2. mash
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        Tough one, this - I say Antonio as more explosive, but fitness is always a concern with him. DCL has the better fixtures, so is 'safer' in that respect. Both sides still chasing european competition, so it's close!

      Order these defenders (help me sort out my bench!)

      1. TAA (SOU, mu)
      2. Fofana (NEW, mu)
      3. Ward (shu, sou_
      4. Holding (WBA, che)
      5. Rudiger (mci, ARS)

      1. The White Pele

          Rudi rotation has me worried - even though Chelsea defense is clearly the best of the lot).

          Cheers!

      Afternoon all! Happy TGW tinkering...

      Mendy
      Shaw Konsa Phillips
      Salah Fernandes Son Jota
      Kane Iheanacho Wood

      Forster Lingard Rudiger Coady

      2FT, £0 ITB, no chips left

      A) Mendy and Rudiger to McCarthy and Maguire
      B) Mendy to Henderson
      C) Phillips and Kane to TAA and DCL
      D) Phillips and Son to TAA and JWP

      Assuming Forster doesn't play in GW36, option A leaves me with 10 players for GW36 plus 1FT (probably to use on Shaw/Maguire)

      The other options leave me with 8 players in GW36 and 2FT (B) or 1FT (C&D)

      Option A looks good to me (as unglamourous as the Saints GK combo is!), would you agree? Any other options I should consider?

      Rodgers said they will be 'fine' yesterday in press but no Vardy or Evans in the training video Leicester posted today.

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        This completely changes my FH team if true.

        1. JJeyy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 22 days ago

          we'll get early team news probably

    9. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 22 days ago

      Which duo on FH?

      A. Auba and Shaw
      B. Greenwood and Trent

      1. Lexi2014
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        A for me

      2. Corgzzzz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        B for me...........dont trust Auba or Arsenal.

      3. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        B.

        But you could do Rashford and TAA. Auba not even on the radar for me. Way too expensive risk.

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 22 days ago

          Yeah I can do Rashford too. Will depend on UEL minutes.

      4. The White Pele
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        B. close tho

      5. MightyGar
          5 months, 22 days ago

          B

      6. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        Is this worth -8 in ur opinion guys?

        Son Reguilon Alonso Dallas... OUT

        TAA Digne Maguire Zaha...IN

        1. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 22 days ago

          Ultimately, probably yes.

        2. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          5 months, 22 days ago

          I'd try do something where you keep Dallas and do a -4 only.
          I don't trust that Digne/Everton are all that good for the double

      7. Lexi2014
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        Thinking Pereira, Son and Dias -> Greenwood, Zaha and Digne. Would be a -8 hit.

        Martinez
        Dias / Shaw / Castagne
        Son / Pereira / Fernandes / Mount
        Watkins / Nacho / Kane

        McCarthy / Dunk / Konsa / Soucek

        Thoughts?

      8. Wılly
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 22 days ago

        Ederson, Son, Lucas to:

        A. Henderson, Bruno, Lucas (2FT)
        B. Guaita, Bruno, Zaha (-4)

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 5 Years

        Who's gonna score more over the MUN TGW: Maguire or AWB?

        Please consult your crystal balls and advise. 🙂

        1. MightyGar
            5 months, 22 days ago

            My balls are telling me AWB

            1. JohnnyRev7
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              I think you may be right. I watch the game tonight and ponder more. Cheers for responding.

              1. MightyGar
                  5 months, 21 days ago

                  They have similar minutes, similar goal / assist threat, but Maguire is more likely to be booked and therefore AWB is slightly more likely to get a cheeky bonus point. Enjoy the game!

          • squ1rrel
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 22 days ago

            I've got no United cover.

            Do I need to take a hit? Maybe Reguilon -> Maguire?

            Martinez
            TAA - Reguilon - Dias - Digne
            Salah - Bale - Siggy - JWP
            Kane - Iheanacho(c)

            Areola - Bamford - Lingard - Struijk

            0 FT, 0.1 ITB

            1. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay

            Oh dear.

            A) Kane, Lingard, Veltman > DCL, Bruno, Maguire (-8)
            B) Kane, Lingard, Veltman > DCL, Bruno, Shaw (-8)

              I like how you've narrowed your options.

              1. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay
                • 5 Years

                Ikr. As I said. Logic. Gone.

            2. The White Pele
              • 4 Years

              I or J.

            3. RogDog_jimmy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              5 months, 22 days ago

              J.

              Rotation and blank for Mount make him less good to Lingard for me.

              I was hoping you'd get to a Z option.

              Then we could all read and our heads would explode.

              Assuming yours had expolded first. 😉

                5 months, 21 days ago

                I'm on it. Then I'm moving on to cyrillic alphabet.

                  Good move and then go for Khmer (Cambodia) which has a 74 character alphabet.

                  I think you're onto something. 🙂

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              I'm hoping Lingard as a WH fan and fpl owner

              And also i can easily see 2 blanks from JWP.

              And can easily see a 2-2 with wh-eve, and would expect lingard to be invovled. he had 2 pre-assists last week even without returning.

                Yes mate I can see returns from lingard but also tempted by the DGW

            Have 2FTs and will play the FH in GW 36, so need to use both.

            Alonso to Shaw is the first.
            What's the next best move?

            A. Sanchez to Guaita?
            B. Some other suggestion?

            Lloris
            Alonso Rudiger TAA
            Salah Bruno Greenwood Jota
            Kane Nacho Watkins
            ------------------------------------------------
            Sanchez Lingard Holding Masuaku

            Nothing in the bank.

            Not interested in Kane to Vardy atm...but could be convinced otherwise.

            Thanks.

              A is interesting - I'm wondering if you do Rudiger > Dallas for the later fixtures - and play Holding.

              Who do you want in gw37 that you could get now and sit on the bench?

              1. EmreCan Hustle
                • 9 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                Dallas would have been an easy transfer but 0.2m short.

                I would want Antonio in 37. But will probably keep Watkins for the double.

                  yeah - i'm planning Nacho>Antonio next week - but wouldn't do it now either.

                  Probably a keeper move to save some money then - you got a good team!

              Probably Castagne

                Bench Guaita, and play Castagne as a fly keeper

              do we see Rudiger being rotated?

                I'm keeping him. I think he might start both.

                  Hopefully, im going to start him with wood first sub

                Did he really say that?

                  • 4 Years

                  Yes

                Lol, why does he look so knackered then?

              Would you do any of these moves?

              A) Considering Jota wasn't in the starting lineup vs Manutd, would you do Jota to Greenwood for a hit?

              B) Rudiger to Coleman (-4)

              C) Wood to DCL (-4)

              Start Emi or Mendy??

              1. EmreCan Hustle
                • 9 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                With Mendy I expect 12 points, with Emi it's either 2 or 15+, so depends on how much risk you're willing to take.

              Already have 10 doublers and 2FTs. Really want to get DCL. suggestions? Will FH36

              Mendy
              Taa Shaw Veltman Holding -- Rudiger
              Salah Bruno Gwood Maddison -- Lingard
              Nacho Kane -- Davis

              A: Veltman + Maddison + Davis >> Digne + esr + DCL (-4). play 433
              B: Maddison + Kane + Davis >> Zaha/Jota + DCL + Vardy (-4)
              C: Veltman + Maddison >> Digne + Zaha/Jota and ignore DCL. stick to 352

              Who hauls more?

              A) Shaw
              B) Maguire

                5 months, 21 days ago

                B) Have a feeling Maguire is gonna score at least one in 3 games.

                Shaw likely to be rested for at least one game.

              Lloris, Son, Lingard, Kane ->
              Henderson, Bruno, Zaha, DCL -8

              Henderson**

              Leaves 1.5ITB and 9 players for GW36

              Thoughts?

              Will Holding play?

                5 months, 21 days ago

                I suspect so - Luiz got hurt again right?
                If no Luiz in Europe today I'm guessing Holding is in - but maybe want an injury update to know about the dgw fixtures.
                He's on my bench.
