Captain Sensible

Who is the best FPL captain for Gameweek 37?

Fantasy Premier League managers have a straight shoot-out between three of this season’s best assets for the Gameweek 37 captaincy.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m), Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and Harry Kane (£11.8m) are all in the conversation although any Fantasy managers chasing their mini-league rivals might be looking at differentials too.

Mason Greenwood (£7.2m), as well as Spurs’ midfielders Gareth Bale (£9.2m) and Son Heung-min (£9.7m) are also on the radar in a week with plenty of choice.

As always, the Captain Sensible article is here to help you with this week’s armband decisions. As this includes extensive data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, only those with a valid subscription can access it in full.

CAPTAIN POLL

It comes as little surprise that the aforementioned trio ofFernandes, Salah and Kane dominate this week’s Captain Poll.

Ahead of facing Fulham in front of an Old Trafford crowd, Manchester United’s talismanic midfielder has the slight edge with 33.1% of total votes so far.

Meanwhile, Salah currently sits in second with a decent chance of overtaking Fernandes, with his current backing at 32.0%.

After scoring Spurs’ first goal against Wolves and rewarding his owners with eight points in Blank Gameweek 36, Kane has been voted as the best captain for the upcoming round of fixtures by just over 15.0% of our users.

The only remaining player to have gained more than 5.0% of total votes so far is Greenwood, as he is looking to continue his impressive goalscoring form.

        Thanks. And keeper?
        In answer to your question, I'd be benching Siggy but you seem to have more faith in him than me!

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Sounds like a porno flick

  3. JJeyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    What splits Kane vs Salah captain for me is Kane playing the best keeper in the league and Salah the second worst Peacock-Pharrel who’s concede 4 more than expected (PSxG), just behind Maccarthy with 6. But Peacock has played way less games, so basically screwed them all up.

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I think Kane being at home with the fans back gives him the edge plus the fact he has a higher assist potential

      1. JJeyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Fans back is a decent theory, but I can’t look past Salah playing the worst p90 keeper in the league

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          So is Pope definitely out for the match?

  4. AutoFill 2021

    Keeper in for Sanchez or Guita to finish the season -4?

    1. liiusions
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      No keeper is worth -4 for 2 weeks

    Wildcard team:

    Meslier (Forster)

    Thoughts?

    1. northernmuppet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Get a stronger bench by bringing in Wilock

    2. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Castagne will play in back 3. Get dallas instead

    3. seanie3
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Mount been very quiet lately, punt on Mahrez or Foden who need minutes leading up to CL final

  14. Sal8
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Playing bench boost

    Meslier Henderson
    Dallas coufal keane phillips holding
    Salah fernandes lingard son jota
    Bamford kane nacho

    0m itb 2 FTs

      • 12 Years

    Rather dull transfer contemplations for the end of the season, don't really want to take a hit if I can help it. Which do you prefer?

    A)
    GW37: Jota > Raph/Harrison (bench ESR)
    GW38: Digne > Dallas

    B)
    GW37: Save FT
    GW38: Digne > Dallas + DCL >8.3m fwd or Jota > 7.6 mid

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Probably A

      1. Il Capitano
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Appreciated, think I'm leaning that way too.

  22. Alcapaul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Martinez to Ederson or Jota to Greenwood?

    Team would be either:

    Ederson
    Trent Dallas Shaw Digne
    Lingard Son Salah
    DCL Kane Bamford

    or:

    Martinez
    Trent Dallas Shaw
    Salah Lingard Greenwood Son
    DCL Kane Bamford.

    Does tonight's news regarding Kane change anything as regards captaining him? Will the fans by on his back?

    1. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I think it's swaying my thinking - feel like it will at least affect his teammates

    2. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I think Kane could get a boost if he thinks himself that this will be his last home match as Spurs player

  28. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Do i stick with Jota & Bamford or do a - 4 to Raphina & Antonio?

    Current team:
    Mendy
    TAA Digne Dallas
    Salah Son Greenwood Lingard
    Kane DCL Bamford

    Subs: Forster, Holding, Fofana, Jota

    1. FPLMACKEM
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I had the same decision. Think I'm just doing Jota to raph and no -4

  29. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    What tondo with Sigurdsson?
    A) Keep and have 2ft in the final week
    B) Sell for some max 7.0, Foden or Raphinha/Harrison

  30. FPLMACKEM
