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.

    Just heard from HELL that the DEVIL has released another GW made by himself this time. So prepare yourselves for unexpected outcome. Good luck mates.

    Now the last decision is between capping Greenwood or Bruno, I'm at 200K so kinda tinkering on a Gwood punt cappo

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Greenwood

    2. F_Ivanovic
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not sure why it has to be be Greenwood. He's only getting 2 games, same as any other DGW player.

      1. teneighty
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Looking at Greenwood myself. He's in good form and mihgt get 2 games and a cameo.

  3. KEN YA DIG IT
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Son and Vydra to Greenwood and Antonio worth a 4 point hit?

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No

    2. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      sorry DCL not antonio

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Could well be

    4. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Son & Vydra > Greenwood & DCL?

      I suspect yes that's worth a -4 - but who are you benching now instead of Vydra?

      What's your plan for next week - is it another hit to get Greenwood out and someone in?

      1. KEN YA DIG IT
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Nacho to Antonio

  4. Mr Bird
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Coleman nailed ?

  5. fpork
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A) Reguilón->Ward
    B) Coady->Mitchell

    Both enables Son->Bruno.

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

  6. moment
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Phillips should be in the Pool back 4, right?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not necessarily.

      He's been left out recently.

    2. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      H e will be rotated

      1. Belli2007
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        He was injured though

    3. Brehmeren
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      He was in the starting lineup vs. Man Utd before the game was postponed.

    4. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      He is back in the lineup

  7. RooneyforLife

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Hello everyone
    Why isn't Keane starting since last 2 matches ,fitness issues or out of favor? Got him last gw only ,if he is not a regular anymore, will ship him out.

    1. lugs
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      he was injured, then Carlo stuck with the team that won Vs Arsenal, Holgate made a mistake that cost a goal the last game though so he might be dropped for Keane this week

  8. Mane Mane Mane

    JWP good cheap alternative to the Zaha and Greenwood shout?

    1. Messiah Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Thinking of him

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Tes

    3. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Naah,too inconsistent for my liking

  9. Messiah Hazard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Which United Keeper to get for triple GW? Or stick with Mendy?

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Hendo

  10. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Seems very tight between Digne and Castagne.

    Any reasons to choose one over the other?

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Digne

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Match in GW36 is the only thing in Digne’s favour imo

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Cheers, in FH, so makes no difference

    3. MightyGar
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Will you need to play them after this week? Castagne has Blank (36) and Chelsea (37), Digne has Sheffield (36) and Wolves (37)

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        No, on free hit, so won’t have them next GW

        1. MightyGar
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 3 months ago

          In that case Digne has slightly more attacking returns so Digne

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Cheers and GL!

            1. MightyGar
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 3 months ago

              And you! We've done the planning so we just need that bit if luck now

              1. RamaJama
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years

                Thanks!

  11. abunab
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Robertson or Trent?

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Trent the clearly better option but if you're chasing Robertson could be a worthwhile differential

    2. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      TAA

  12. F_Ivanovic
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Vardy + Son to DCL + Bruno worth a -4? Would mean I have 4 non-playing players in 36 with only the 1 FT as opposed to 2 FT

  13. NULL-X-VOID
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Wow, I really thought deadline was today and brought in Bruno and Gwood, I'm pretty sure imma regret it

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Most likely one of them could get injured

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        thanks man, this helped

      2. #Swish41
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Not sure it’s most likely

  14. Don Kloppeone
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Which option do you prefer? The options with a hit help towards a fuller GW36 team

    A) Son, Welbeck > Greenwood, DCL/ Watkins
    B) Son, Holding > Greenwood, Digne
    C) Son, Welbeck, Holding > DCL/ Watkins, JWP, Digne (-4)
    D) Son, Welbeck, Masuaku > DCL/ Watkins, Greenwood, Coleman (-4)

    2FT 0.4itb. No chips
    Mendy/ Forster
    TAA, Shaw, Rudiger, Holding
    Salah, Bruno, Jota, Son
    Kane, Iheanacho
    (Mendy/ Forster) (Lingard, Welbeck, Masuaku)

    Cheers!

    1. KEN YA DIG IT

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      A - Greenwood & DCL

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thanks Karan

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A with DCL.
      But understanding going with Watkins to help for next week's moves.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        This

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          This meaning go DCL or Watkins?

      2. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeh DCL is one of those players who can so easily troll.... hmmm

    4. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      D

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Interesting the first option D!

        Mostly because of the DCL Greenwood combo?

        You trust EVE to get CS?

    5. bautasten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Basically the same team (got Ayling instead of Masu) and I'm between A or B.

      A is probably better this week but puts you in a bad spot for GW36, hence I'm actually leaning B.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        It’s that reason that I’m seriously considering D. Sets up for 36 more and Coleman should score > 4pts more than Holding over next couple...

        1. bautasten
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          yeah sure, just not that keen on Coleman with the rotation risk but it could work out.

  15. MadeinIreland
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Guys is this worth it?

    Saka, Saiss and Wood to El Ghazi, Maguire and DCL for -8 ???

    And do you think Keane will play?

    Thanks...

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 8 Years

      Not for -8

        1 year, 3 months ago

        C, you will want lingard for the end of the season and son for the next to against wolves and villa. If you can take care of benching in gw 36 without hits, then maybe get greenwood

    Hearing a lot of "fpl experts" saying you would be mad not to wildcard this week if you still have it.

    I have wildcard left and plan to play it in gw 36. This is my team for gw 35 with a -4
    Martinez
    Castagne, TAA, Maguire
    Salah, Bruno, Greenwood, Jota
    Watkins, DCL, Iheanaco
    Am I mad to wildcard in gw 36?

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      nah this team is solid for a -4.
      completely get waiting to wc next week.

  19. STONEROSES
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Anyone steering away tripling up on Utd?
    I’d be surprised if any started all 3 & have a blank in GW36.
    Much more tempted by, say Everton players who have a DGW and then SHU in 36

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not going to overthink it and will go for it .

      1. RamaJama

    2. DRIZ ✅

      Dont think Ole rotates and no need to do so at this point.

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      If you have 2 players, I wouldn't get the third unless you have a plan for 36. If you do want a third, Maguire is the best bet to get 3 starts.

    4. F_Ivanovic
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I only have Shaw. Tempted to find a way to bring Bruno in but it would be for a hit and would mean I only have 1 FT next week to get rid of 1 of Che/Lei/United - an injury to someone else and/or someone not starting next week would be the equivalent of 2 hits just so I can have Bruno this week.

    5. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      i only have bruno - not getting anyone else in.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        for me i already have 10 dgw players - any move is a hit for one extra fixture that they might be rested for aynway - and then another hit to deal with next gw (currently need a -4 to get to 10).

    6. Indpush
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Me. I have Shaw and Bruno.

      I have James and Azpilic. I can't afford to get a third ManU player and end up with 10 players for 36 or 11 with a hit.

      Bringing in Zaha and Richarlison, already having DCL.

    7. bso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Me. I think it is one big hype that will end in tears. No one is playing more than 2 games. And they will be tired. And they blank in gw36. No way do I want more than 2.
      I have Shaw and doubt he will bring in more than 4 pts.

  20. Eleven Hag
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is this BB team G2g? (-4)

    OR would you take any more hits?
    - Wood is the only single GW player
    - Rudiger and Jota could miss one of the games
    - FH36

    Mendy Forster
    TAA Rudiger Maguire Shaw Konsa

    Hello everyone
    Why isn't Keane starting since last 2 matches ,fitness issues or out of favor? Got him last gw only ,if he is not a regular anymore, will ship him out.

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years

      fitness issues gaffer was saying, should be fine next game

        Where did he say that?

      Holgate was awful last game so may get dropped for keane

    What to do here guys??

    Mendy, Forster
    TAA, Dias, Rudiger, Fofana, Coady
    Salah, Son, Jota, Lingard, Saka
    Kane, Iheanacho, Vydra

    £2.4m ITB 2FT

    Need to consider gw36 too as I have no chips left

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years

      Salah > Bruno

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      might do
      Vydra > Watkins - then bench Lingard/Saka.
      roll 1.

      Bruno is tempting but will he play 3?

  23. Belli2007
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    BB or TC?

    I have Bruno and Greenwood but would probably opt for Bruno for TC

    Bench is currently all non DGW players and do have 2 FTS but would need to free up some cash and would perhaps have to ship Jota to do so....

    I have 2 Utd and 2 Leiicester players so then need to consider whoever I bring in is not from Leicester, Utd, Arsenal or Chelsea in order to field 11 the following week without having to take a few hits......

          Vardy has DGW. You got to live a little

      DCL, Iheanacho, Lacazette (if fit - if not Cavani (depending on euro team) if not Watkins/Vardy)

    Who are Mendy and Forster owners playing in the double?

    I've posted 3 times now in the past couple of days for advice and not once have I got a reply despite trying to give advice to others! Bit frustrating even though ultimately I'll make my own decision but just wanted some clarity.

    Maybe 4th time lucky?

    Son + Vardy > Bruno + DCL (-4)

    Would leave me with 4 non-playing next week with only 1 FT. Avoiding Bruno for the past 9 weeks has worked wonders but my luck is bound to run out with someone who is still posting the stats.

      100% yes. You can't risk no Bruno this week I think.

      You'll profit from those moves, even with the hit I reckon

      Yeah do that i reckon.

      Only 4 blanks next week is a pretty good place to start i think.

      Vardy ain't been that exciting for me (assume you have Nacho already). And the Bruno (c) is such a clear move this week.

      Go for it! Especially if you have Spurs / Leicester cover in your team

      Just Vardy to DCL
      You don’t want to be stuffed up the following week.

    Is Mendy -> Hendo worth a - 4?

    I'm tempted by

    a.) Potentially 3 games vs 2 games

    b.) Hendo's more favourable fixtures this GW

    c.) Hendo's more favourable fixtures til end of season (I'm free hitting GW36.)

        Is Hendo nailed on?

      fh36 is great - i like the reasoning. can't fault the decision if it's well thought through.
