Captain Sensible

Who is the best FPL captain for Gameweek 38?

As you can see from the current results, Salah is the runaway leader of the Gameweek 38 Captain Poll. The Egyptian midfielder has accumulated just over 60.0% of total votes from our users so far.

No other play has garnered more than 10.0% of votes at this stage far, with Leeds striker Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) currently in second place, backed by 7.4% of our users. 

There is also a surprise inclusion in the top five, as Jack Grealish (£7.5m) occupies the third place with 3.4% of votes, with Sadio Mané (£11.7m, 3.3%) and Joe Willock (£4.8m, 2.5%) just behind the Aston Villa midfielder.

    Bamford plays FPL himself and is 12 points off the 200 club. Surely that’s a good additional incentive for him tomorrow?

    What to do with this lot?
    Have 1 FT

    Leno
    Holding TAA Reguillon Salah(C) Lingard Greenwood Raph
    DCL Kane Antonio

    Mendy Mahrez Shaw Veltman

    1. Mahrez to Pepe and drop DCL
    2. Mahrez to Havertz/Pulisic drop DCL
    3. DCL to Bamford
    4. Anything else

  3. Igz08

    Would you rather play Bale or Mane -4?

    A) Bale
    B) Manè (-4)

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Tough one.. Follow your gut.. But I'd go with Mane (even though Jota is ready to play)

  4. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    A DCL to Bamford
    B DCL to Nacho
    C Coleman to Dallas
    D Greenwood to Willock
    E JWP to Willock
    F Two of the above for minus 4?

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      A or A and D

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      A, maybe also C depending who would play otherwise with Coleman injured.

  5. Max City
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Areola
    TAA Dallas Shaw
    Salah Lingard Raphinha Harrison
    Kane Firmino Iheanacho

    (Martinez Son Castagne Coleman)

    1FT 0.2itb

    Burn the FT?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years

      I would sell one of Castagne, Shaw or Coleman probably

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Cheers

    2. balint84
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Sell Son, too pricey to bench him

    3. blauriecon
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Coleman to Rudiger and bench Shaw as Chelsea have more to play for.

  6. donbagino
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Current bench in brackers
      Ederson (McCarthy)
      Shaw, Rudiger, Phillips (Digne, Veltman*)
      Bruno, Salah, Lingard, Greenwood (Foder)
      Watkins, Kane, Bamford

      a) Watkins --> Rodrigo (as goalfest expected)
      b) Greenwood --> Raphinha/Harrison - reason as above + Greenwood not nailed
      c) Bruno --> Mane (I expect Liverpool to score 3 goals and could Mane be 1 of goalscorers?
      d) Digne/Shaw - Dallas

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        A or B I guess

    • THE KING CANTONA
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      What would be the order of priority, if you consider getting below players:
      1) Mane
      2) TAA
      3) Antonio
      4) Raph
      5) Harrison
      6) Wood
      7) Cresswell
      8) Willock

      1. donbagino
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Raph, Harrison, TAA, Mane, Antonio, Willock, Cresswell

      2. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Repost Sorry
        Pope Johnstone
        Cancelo(red), Dallas, AWB, Coufal, Lowton
        Salah, Willock, Lingard, Son, ESR
        Kane, Bamford, DCL

        4.0 itb and 1 FT
        Have to Chase 27 in the ML - Is this possible or should I just leave it. Also give me any suggestion if you like.

        thinking of doing
        Son + Cancelo to Roberton + Mane for a hit

      3. balint84
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        A) Mount + Firmino
        B) Mane + Phillips or Willock

      4. cheekymonkeytoo
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Martinez
        TAA, Dallas, Phillips
        Salah*, Son, Raph, Greenwood, Willock
        DCL, Wood, Ihenacho

        Bench: Sanchez, Shaw, Evans
        No FT, £8m in bank
        8pts ahead in ML (he has Kane, Antonio, Lingard & Salah)

        Which one for -4?
        a) DCL to Kane
        b) DCL to Antonio
        c) DCL to Bamford
        d) Or leave as is

      5. ScoutHelp
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Lingard to Auba for -4?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Absolutely not

        • George James
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Best option

          A) DCL + 4 points

          B) Antonio
