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.

    Really struggling this week. No chips left but 2FT and 1.8 ITB.

    Do these moves look sound for next two GWs (each for a - 4)? Or do I need more Man U...

    35: Son, Rudiger and Vydra - JWP, Digne and Watkins
    36: Vardy and Ihenacho - Kane and Antonio

    Mendy, Forster
    TAA, Fofana, Coady, Rudiger, Holding
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Jota, Lingard
    Vardy, Ihenacho, Vydra

    Any other suggestions welcomed!

      Decent moves

      good planning. i might do a cheap palace defender instead of Digne (Ward?) and upgrade either JWP>??? or Watkins>DCL
      I really don't trust Everton defense - expect Palace to do just as well so would rather spend the money elsewhere.

    Jota to Zaha worth it? Doubt Jota will play more than one game.

      Not for me

    Manchester United lineup to face AS Roma: De Gea, Wan Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, Pogba, Fred, Bruno, van de Beek, Cavani, Greenwood

    1. JJeyy

      Rashford Rest

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty

      Strong

    3. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years

      Rashford (c) it is then

    4. djman102

      No initial answers on Greenwood vs Maguire next week then.

    5. RamaJama

      Rashford over Greenwood?

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Think Rashford’s minutes will be managed anyway during the 3 games, due to his health

      2. djman102
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Bringing in Salah too so can't afford it unless I downgrade DCL to Benteke or something like that.

    6. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      FFS Shaw

    7. MightyGar
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I make that 10 days off for Bruno, he will he raring to go for the triple!

        1. MightyGar
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Damn it, didn't see Bruno was playing

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              2 months, 21 days ago

              Yeah his is his 2nd game in a week... and he’s staring at 4 games in 7 days now...

              1. MightyGar
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  No doubt he will get subbed off in the 86th minute when they are leading 9-3 on aggregate

        2. Fantasy123456
            2 months, 21 days ago

            My team is
            Mendy Forster
            TAA, Holding, Coady, Struijk, Burn
            Salah, Fernandez, Jota, Son, Moura
            Kane, Nacho, Davis

            Would Coady to Maguire, and Moura to JWP be a good move for a -4 hit.
            Gives me 11 for next gameweek too with my 1 free transfer.

            Any other ideas?
            Please help??

              Yep, good moves

              2 months, 21 days ago

              like it. but are Moura and Davis part of the 11 for next week? Because I don't know if I like that...

              1. Fantasy123456
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Davis is but I’m swapping Moura for JWP so he will be playing instead. I really wanted to get Greenwood for Son but felt I would need to take a few hits next week which I thought wouldn’t be worth it.

              1 week only

              A) Maguire + Son

              B) TAA + Greenwood (-4)

              Who are Mendy and Forster owners playing in the double?

              Thanks

                At the moment Mendy.
                Although I might do Mendy to Mccarthy

              2. Fantasy123456
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Mendy for me

                Vardy 343 or Mane 352 or Auba 352?

                  • 10 Years

                  FH? Mane

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Martinez
                TAA Shaw Rudiger
                Salah Bruno Greenwood Jota
                Kane DCL Nacho

                (Fabri Lingard Coufal Struijk)
                2 FTs / 0.0m / BB active

                Thoughts on Kane, Struijk & Fabri ➡️ Watkins, Digne & 5.4m GK for -4?

                Nacho & Bruno to Kane/Aguero & Foden/Mahrez next week for 11 starters.

                2 months, 21 days ago

                This gw:

                A) Holding
                B) Fofana

                1. Belli2007
                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  I have Fofana although his minutes being managed due to Ramadan (which does end next week). Can't see him not starting both matches as Leicester have to get points but last two matches he has played less than 60mins

                  1. premierleaguesgreatestevert…
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    Cheers. I want to go Fofana but already have Castagne playing and fear going all in on the same team. On other hand, feel Leicester have more about them in the PL and don't fancy trusting Arsenal to CS against WBA as a way of getting returns

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                United with all first teamers starting outside of Hendo and Rash.

                1. RamaJama
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years

                  Gives us no more clues

              7. thepirates
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                How about this FH 35 team:

                Henderson
                Coleman - Shaw - Castagne - TAA
                Salah - Fernandes - Mane
                DCL - Nacho - Vardy

                1. Kroos-Control
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Maguire more likely to play 3 games.. Although lose Shaw's attacking threat.
                  Mane Salah double up risky but could pay off if your chasing..
                  Other than that looks solid

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                All aboard the Rashford train!

                1. Jon Walter's Hatty
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  You may get returns but probably THE most frustrating asset to watch

                  1. WE GO FOR IT
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    Oh, I'm already maxed out with Shaw, Bruno and Greenwood. That was for all the ones who were gonna target the attacker who was benched today.

                2. RamaJama
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Rashford’s health will lead to managed minutes anyway

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    But I guess he's nailed to start 2 games now though!

                    1. RamaJama
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 21 days ago

                      Guess so. Worth going for him over greenwood?

                      1. WE GO FOR IT
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 21 days ago

                        I have Greenwood already. So, I hope he outscores Rashford. But if you're on a FH, Rashford is a good differential since everyone is going for Greenwood

                        1. RamaJama
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          Good luck!

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Best FH team?
                Right Now I'm At:
                Guaita
                Maguire Trent Castagne Strujk Mitchell
                Bruno Greenwood Salah Zaha Saka
                DCL Watkins Nacho

                Going for a 3-4-3 Most likely. Any Changes? Thank you 🙂

                a) Greenwood

                b) Wan Bissaka/Shaw

                Schmeichel

                Kane, Iheanacho (Wood)

                With 2FT and no FH/BB should I do any of these transfers?

                A) Fofana + Wood > Maguire + Benteke
                B) Fofana + Lingard > Maguire + JWP

                  You appear to have contracted a particularly bad case of Doublegameweekitis

                    Well 'es lucky! I've contracted Treblegameweekiti stage 6! Because 14 of us live in a 'ole in the ground and light our farts to get Internet working. And when our Dad comes home....

                Everyone hoping Arsenal can get the big win tonight then?

                Personally I don’t like, or support them at all...

                But it would be great novelty value to have 4 PL a clubs in those 4 final slots

                1. Belli2007
                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  No

                  If I am correct and they won the Europa League they would get CL spot and 4th in PL would lose out.

                  I support Leicester and things are far from decided!!!

                    4th would still have a CL spot in that case unless Chelsea also win UCL and finish fifth.

                Shaw won't play villa then.

                  I think he plays villa and pool

                  Might not be a bad thing, if United continue their recent history of playing for 0-0s in the bigger games.

                Why is Bruno Shaw Greenwood starting. Let hope they come out safe

                  Madness isnt it. He just never rests Bruno ever.

                    Lets hope that is true and he plays all 3.

                So does this make Rashford a better option than Greenwood for the TGW?

                Quite a few were on here hoping for the lineups will give an idea as to who to bring in, don't think OGS has done much to that end

                To facilitate Bamford > Watkins:

                1. Son > Greenwood*** (FT, leaves me with 9 for 36)

                2. Mendy > Pickford** (play Rudiger, bench Godfrey, 11 for 36)

                3. Rudiger > Ward/4.5m with good 36 and bench this week - 11 for 36

                Mendy**
                Shaw*** Godfrey** Phillips**
                Son Salah** Bruno*** Jota**
                Kane Watkins** Nacho**

                Rudger** Dallas Lingz Forster**

                Appreciate any advice!!

                  2 or 3.

                  While you might gain points from DGW's this is lost if only fielding 9 the following week or have to take hits to get 11 out

                Greenwood, Shaw and Bruno all starting. Eff off Ole. The tie is won! Annoying.

                    Rashford missing out is interesting.

                    Barca vs Pool was won too and they lost 4-0 with first 11

                  Dallas to Digne worth to take -8 hit?

                      2 months, 21 days ago

                      I'd want Dallas to end the season they have a good last 3. Any other defender that could make way?

                          Not worth -8

                    2 quick ones:

                    1. jota > Greenwood sideways right?

                    2. Double Chelsea defence overkill (CITY Ars)?

                    Cheers!

                      1. if free, could pay off, especially if Jota stays benched vs United

                      2. Maybe, but I see Chel-City as a very cagey 0-0 given it's a warmup for the UCL Final. Neither will want the other to gain a mental advantage.
