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.

      • 11 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Normally it's B, but depends on your situation. I will gamble on A if have to chase some points.

      Son and vydra to zaha and Watkins bench boost?

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Like this.
        can you do

        Son > Greenwood
        Vydra > Watkins

        or
        Son > JWP?
        Vydra > DCL

        1. Gizzachance
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks
          Once again another move if I want dcl instead of Watkins
          Think Greenwood will be a popular move, no doubt the match tonight will influence this, game time etc
          Good luck

      2. Gizzachance
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers
        Was the moves I was already thinking !
        It prob between zaha an Greenwood, don’t want to have to many out for gw35
        Good luck

  3. Calculated Risks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Martinez
    Rudiger, Shaw, Coady
    Salah, Bruno, Mount, Son
    Ichenacho, Watkins, Kane
    (Lingard, Veltman, Dawson)
    2ft, 0.4 itb
    Thinking of Coady, Son, Kane out for Digne, Mane, DCL for a bit of fun. Would give me 11 doublers/treblers
    Thoughts?

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      No TAA with all those transfers?

      1. Calculated Risks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Hard to crowbar in, hardly any clean sheets, 1 match v Manu and think Digne could match him is my thinking

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Hope that calculated risk works. I am def not sold on Mane though.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Looks good but I feel TAA is better option than Digne.

    3. MightyGar
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I'm not sure Mane and fun go together, but otherwise it is a strong team

    4. Calculated Risks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Sounds like Trent is the one then...will see but he hard for me to get in. Thanks guys 🙂

  4. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Best GK alongside Martinez for BB?

    A) Schmeichel (NEW, mun)
    B) Mendy (mci, ARS)
    C) Guaita (shu, sou)

    Have Rudiger so not sure about a double up on Chelsea but their defence is elite.
    Palace have good fixtures but worst stats for defence and nothing to play for.
    Schmeichel could be up against a rotated United team & NEW which looks promising.

    1. Calculated Risks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Pickford perhaps

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Have Digne mate. I don't trust Everton defence for a double up.

        1. Calculated Risks
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Ah okay. It between Mendy and Kasper for me then. Don't trust palace even with those fixtures

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      C

    3. gonzalocampos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I went with Guaita and Martinez for my BB.

  5. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Greenwood or Rashford? Im chasing and captaining the chosen one

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      rivals probably captaining Fernandes

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Who is that

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          The chose chosen one

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Greenwood

  6. RECKLESS
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Ole really wants to get a final, such a strong lineup even after 6-2 win first leg. Makes you wonder most will be benched against one of Avl/lei

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      He's got 5 subs he can use - expect he wants to see out first 45 and will shift a few at HT

  7. Manani
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Zaha or Greenwood?

    1. RECKLESS
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      With Greenwood starting today, u less he hauled off at 60 min better to go with Zaha

    2. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Zaha now. Greenwood definitely won't start 3 games. Maybe won't even start 2 imo

  8. ItOnlyTook9Years
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Son, Fofana and Forster to Rashford, Lindy and Guita (-4) for bench boost?

  9. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Who scores more:

    A) Greenwood vs Villa, Leicester, Liverpool
    B) DCL vs West Ham, Villa, Sheffield

    1. Krafty Werks
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      B

    2. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      B

  10. mr. inconspicuous
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Who to play out of Rudiger and Mitchell?

    1. Utopsis
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Mitchell - I think Rudiger plays vs City but not Arsenal

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        You think Mitchell will play both?

        1. Utopsis
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 12 days ago

          I'm gambling that he will - with PVA leaving on a free (Galatasaray currently frontrunner for his signature), great opportunity for Hodgson to take a good look at Mitchell for next season

  11. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Think im set for the coming week barring any injuries. -8

    Martinez*

    Maguire** Digne* TAA* Castagne*

    Lingard Salah*(TC) Bruno** Zaha*

    Vardy* Nacho*

    8 DGWers, 2 TGWers

    1. Shineonme

      I like the zaha pick. Palace have some nice games

  13. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Pulisic to Zaha? Or is there a better change?

    0.0 ITB

    Martinez
    TAA | Rudiger | Castagne
    Salah | Greenwood | Maddison | Pulisic
    Cavani | Kane | Iheanacho

    GK: Forster | Lingard | Veltman | Dallas

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Might just roll that transfer - Pulisic didn't play much in Europe - expect 1,5 games from him.
      And Zaha....well he was carrying an injury...and do you really trust Palace to score all that much?

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I have 2 FTs and Zaha playing Sheffield and Southampton. Not sure.

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 12 days ago

          2 fts hmmm...not going to tell you it's a bad idea, you're team is good.

    2. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Nice move. Palace have some nice games coming up.

  14. Railwayman
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    What is wrong with Ole, why does he play his strongest team with a 6-2 win in the first leg???????

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      You need managerial skills to know how to use different combinations.

  15. Arteta
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    If Bruno gets injured tonight Ole will look like a complete fool. Just rest him when you finally can man.

    1. #Swish41
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      He seems immune to injury...curse placed!

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      More chance of roma making a come back here than itd finishing outside top 4

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I'm sorry but this game is infinitely more important than the league. They have a top 4 locked in.
      This is for a European final.

      Playing a full strength team here is a no-brainer. Rest them 2 games next week instead.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Yes especially since utd have had their rest after the postponement

        1. Utopsis
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Exactly

    4. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Bruno has only been injured once in his career. He missed just 2 games then.

    5. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      ^^ This ^^

  16. #Swish41
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    To facilitate another move and give me 11 next week, would you:

    1. Mendy > Pickford (and play Rudiger)

    2. Rudiger > Ward / Masuaku (bench this week)

    Currently on 2 as Mendy seems more secure and I have Man U / Liv / Eve defenders this week so don’t need double Chelsea...

    TIA!

    1. #Swish41
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      For free btw!

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I'm doing Alonso > Ward to facilitate Vydra > DCL.
      (And playing Mendy)
      So I'm for option 2.

      1. #Swish41
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        That makes me feel better!

  17. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Who scores more?
    A) Vardy NEW, mun
    B) DCL (-4) whu, avl, SHU

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 12 days ago

      The real question should include whoever replaces Vardy in the next GW. (unless you're building in a blank for him and not replacing)

      For example
      A)Vardy (NEW,mun) + DCL (SHU) -4
      B)DCL (whu,avl, SHU) -4
      C)Vardy (NEW,mun) + Antonio (bha) -4

      1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I have Vardy and thinking of bringing DCL 😀

        1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 12 days ago

          replacing Vardy

  18. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    This United lineup does us absolutely no favors. I have no idea who will play.

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Rashford the safest pick now I think

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Thought he was getting over foot injury?

      2. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        For the next game perhaps. Everyone will play roughly the same amount across the 3 matches.

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I don't think he's safe at all. Remember that if he plays the first game, he's likely to get rested the 2nd or 3rd. And he's getting over injury.

        The only thing we know is that he'll likely play vs Villa.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 12 days ago

      my plan of sticking with Bruno and not bringing in anyone else is feeling better - so it did me a favor!

      1. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Brought in Jota for Greenwood yesterday, not so sure now. Still pleased I got rid of Jota though, his "DGW" is a trap

      2. Shineonme
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Snap

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      It's effectively a double for United. Don't see anyone getting three.

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Rashford in the driving seat now to start at least 2 games - that’s all you can ask for when they have 4 games in he next 7 days

  19. fplking14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Coleman or Ward?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Ward

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 12 days ago

      i'm doing Ward primarily to save money for nacho>antonio next week

  20. Dragon1983
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Playing BB -:

    Mendy, Martinez
    Shaw, Coleman, Digne, Dallas, Phillips
    Bruno, Salah, Lingard, Mount, Jota
    DCL, Bamford, Nacho

    A) G2G and save FT
    B) Mount \ Lingard > Greenwood
    C) Dallas > Maguire - in theory 2 more games but would need -4 next week
    D) Lingard > Zaha and Dallas > Maguire (-4) - in theory 3 more games - would need another -4 to field 11 next week
    E) Mendy > Hendo

    Thanks guys and good luck

  21. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Thoughts on this move? Would give me 6 doubles and 2 triples this week, and then just 4 blanks next week with the plan to shift Iheanacho anyway.

    Martinez (Leno)
    Digne Phillips Rudiger (Coufal Dunk)
    Brun(o) Salah Jota Son Lingard
    Kane Iheanacho (Vydra)

    Leno & Rudiger > Ryan & Maguire

  22. Street Friend
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Would you sell Kane or Son for an Everton or Villa player? For -4.

    Current team
    Mendy
    TAA Rudiger Maguire Holgate
    Bruno Salah Jota *Son
    Kane* Nacho

    (Forster Holding Lingard Vydra)

    2. Messiah Hazard

      None

  23. Messiah Hazard

    Will Martial be fit for the TGW? Wondering whether to do:
    A) Vardy to Cavani/Martial
    B) Maddison to Greenwood

      B. Vardy will likely outscore Maddison, Greenwood more guaranteed of minutes than other 2.

    Will Salah play more minutes in two matches than Bruno does in three? Captaincy decision...

      I’d say about the same tbh...so I guess it depends on your mini leagues who you choose etc or who you think will score more

      i'm not huge on the leicester attacking double up - or castagne for that matter.

      might go with Robbo over Castagne and Guaita in goals.
      Vardy > DCL.

    Pickford, Lindelof, Ward, Kabak for -8 is ok move?
