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.

    Advice needed. 2FT's. £0.2 ITB.

    Emi
    TAA Shaw Regs
    Salah Bruno Son JLingz
    Wood Kane Nacho

    Subs: Fabri, Raphinha, Veltman, Burn

    Thinking of going Son -> Greenwood and Burn -> Nat Phillips with the two FT's. Would likely play Phillips over Regs in starting XI. That would give me £2.4 ITB to bring back Son next week with my FT. Good moves, or any other suggestions?

    Would you bench Kane for Maguire -4?

    The -4 doesn't hit this week. It hits next week when I'll need to take hits to field 11.

    1. antis0cial

      No

    2. NATSTER

      Not my way to hope CB to outscore main striker with penalty duty.

      But it's 3 games vs 1 game. Umm..

      As a long suffering Maguire owner I’ll do you a favour

      He is an absolute FPL disaster zone, will either concede, or if he manages a clean sheet, will get booked to ensure no baps. He will go up for every set piece & do F All, and when he finally does score it will be disallowed wrongly

      Most booked player in the league & has had an absolute explosion of yellow cards in the last 6-8 weeks, he genuinely struggles to handle premier league forwards in a back 4

      Nightmare of a player

      I hate him so much

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        So it's a maybe? 😛

        2 months, 29 days ago

        *in fact - I’d nearly put money on him being sent off this GW

        He already struggles in a normal schedule - 3 games in 5 days will be too much for him & he’ll do something stupid out of tiredness or slowness & then whinge at the referee for Red carding him

        Stay away!

          I’m still not sure what your final answer is LOL. The man spends more time on his arse than contributing to the team.

          Really like your sharing on Maguire. It completely push me to Shaw even there is some rotation risk.

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      No

  3. Pedaso Pirates
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Thinking Coady, Son and Vydra out for Maguire, Mount and Watkins (-4)

    My team would then be :
    Mendy
    TAA, Holding, Maguire
    Salah, Fernandez, Salah, Mount
    Kane, Iheanacho, Watkins

    0 ITB

    Yes/No/or? Thanks...

      Salah and Salah??

      Yes from me....

  4. son of city
      2 months, 29 days ago

      ole has a very clear winning road today without Bruno but what does he do, Desperately exhaust Bruno ffs!!!

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        He could do what he did last time he had a huge lead. Start Bruno but take him off at half time.

        1. son of city
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Anything can happen before halftime, he could be injured.

        2. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 29 days ago

          i really don't get people surprised that Ole chose his strongest team after a full week off - in a european semi-final, when top 4 in the league is effectively guaranteed.

        3. Old Bull
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          He has form in this. Remember last season when he was too scared to rest Rashford when he was playing well. He didn’t look right and ended up getting injured. He plays his best players to death because he scared to rest them. Bruno could have benefited from not playing a game.

      2. balint84
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        So Button, Rudiger, Dunk and Andersen to
        Pickford, Lindelof, Ward and Kabak is the right move for-8? Too much?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Is that for a BB? Seems like some low impact moves there.

          1. balint84
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Bb and 2ft, 0.5 itb
            Which one is not necessary? Save Dunk? Is Ward a trap? Lindelof plays only once?

        2. RogDog_jimmy

          this is like the ultimate D-list movie cast

      4. Blanka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Is Henderson nailed in the sticks for united for all 3, do we think?

        1. Milkman Bruno
            2 months, 29 days ago

            I’d think David gets one

          • Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Most likely of all players to get 3. But I don't think anyone will get all 3.

          • Bob_the_builder
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            I think it's 90% certain that he starts all 3. Maybe I could be wrong but frequent games actually help goal keepers. Physical fatigue is normally not an issue and if you get into that zone, the muscle memory and the focus gets only better.

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Which 2 to play:

          A) Konsa
          B) Rudiger
          C) Mitchell

          If A is included then which GK:

          A) Martinez
          B) Forster

          1. Johnny Leghorn
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            A and C and Forster

        3. FFSbet.com
          • 5 Years

          Who scores more this GW?

          A) Vardy + Robbo

          B) Mane + Castagne

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            B

          2. balint84
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            A

        4. Daghe Munegu
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Vardy Vydra to DCL Watkins -4?

          Yes or no ?

        5. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          So Greenwood, Shaw and Bruno, all start. So much for TGW clues 😆

            It may end up being a DGW after all for United. I’m hoping the protesters stay outside the stadium for upcoming Utd-Pool rematch

                      Why is there such a massive consensus building for Bruno's captaincy? Trying to understand this as this captaincy decision could be massive:

                      1. He will start 2 out of 3, no chance he plays all three - at max he gets around 200mins across the 3 games (this is the absolute max I would expect, realistically I expect him to play 160-180mins)

                      2. His form is nothing to speak of over the last few games in the PL - lot of players who do have DGWs and would play equivalent amount of mins have fared far better.

                      Is anybody else mulling over this? Would love to hear the community's thoughts.

                        He could explode at any time by now. We'll never know. I don't have him anyway. Fingers crossed.

                      On a bench boost with this team: No money and 1 FT Leading mini league by 46 points.

                      Martinez Forster
                      TAA AWB Holgate Castagne Ward
                      Salah Zaha Sigurdsson Lingard Pereira
                      Kane Vardy Iheanacho

                      GTG or
                      A Vardy and Sigurdsson to C Adams and Bruno (then C to block my opponent)
                      B Castagne to MaGuire and Pereira to JWP

                      I have 30 games from my players potentially and my closest rival has 2FT and my opponent has 28 if he C Bruno and all the United players play 3 (????)
