Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 5?

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) looks to be the leading captain candidate for Gameweek 5, but are there any viable alternatives to the Egyptian for this upcoming round of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) action?

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 5 captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of today’s 18:30 BST deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

As you can see from the current results, Salah is the runaway leader of the Gameweek 5 captain poll. The Egyptian midfielder has accumulated 60.4% of total votes from our users at the time of writing.

Only one other player has garnered more than 10% of votes at this stage, with Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m) in second place, backed by 14.74% of users.

Patrick Bamford (£7.9m) occupies third place with 4.9% of votes, with Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) behind the Leeds United man, with 4.45% and 2.47% respectively.

    Sánchez
    Alexander-Arnold Shaw White Tsimikas
    Benrahma Torres Salah Raphinha
    Toney Ronaldo

    Subs Steer Ayling Antonio Brownhill

    2.2m ITB and 1FT

    Was thinking about shipping Toney for Bamford, but then I looked at Dennis.
    Dennis has nor & NEW and is a great differential, then dead-ending him when I plan on GW8 W/C

    Thoughts?

    1. We Go Again
      • 7 Years

      Rather go safe with Bamford tbh

      1. Foresting
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Or I suppose stick and have 2FTs next GW

  2. Eastman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Jota to outscore Bruno this week?

    1. Reinhold
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      If he starts, probably

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Both get 8 this GW

    3. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Yes

  3. Reinhold
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Going triple premium + TAA on wildcard restricts the team quite a bit, admittedly. But I think I will still do it to not have to plan too many transfers for GW7.

    Which one of these do you think keeps the most important flexibility?

    A) Bamford in a 3-4-3, with the option of switching to Antonio, Jimenez et al.

    B) Jota or Greenwood in a 3-5-2, with the option of switching between mid priced mids.

    1. Rbyrne95
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Bamford on pens too ain't he? Jota and Greenwood potential minute risk

      1. Reinhold
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah, he is. It's just I have Raphinha too, and Jota is so explosive when he starts.

    2. Malkmus
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      A imo

  4. Budweiser
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Is Davinson Sanchez a good option on a WC? 3 clean sheets first 3 games then conceded 3 without him.. Cheap price at 4.5m but is he nailed when all fit? Any Spurs fans??

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Romero and Dier might be the first choice pairing so wouldn’t risk it

      1. Budweiser
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeh thought it might be too risky.. Bloody Dier!

    2. polis
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Does he keep his place when Romero starts?

  5. Eastman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Is Pogba nailed. Thinking of only Pogba as my Man U cover from GW7 with Lukaku.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Pogba is pretty nailed I would say

    2. Budweiser
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Ole likes to play McFred in the big games but the form Pogba is in it would be crazy to bench him

    3. Reinhold
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      He'll miss out on the occasional game on current form. If form drops, and when Rashford returns, he might miss out more.

  6. SADIO SANÉ

    Personally think the Palace defence is super underrated, Andersen and Guehi both underrated and Guaita is a solid keeper - will that matter at Anfield though? feels a bit wrong captaining a player against a team I think are better than people are realising

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      It’s a fair point, decent defence Vs best or 2nd attack, unstoppable force V immovable object if you will

      I still think Liverpool get 2

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Palace are pretty solid but going down at Anfield.

      (S)alah

    3. Rbyrne95
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I like to think that too. But the last three results have been 2-0,7-0 and 4-0 Liverpool. I'm even debating captaining TAA

  7. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I’m really looking forward to the game tonight !

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Lately you have been looking forward alot, great to hear 🙂

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yep! Bam and Raph! What can go wrong 🙂

  8. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    The best thing about having Ron and Rom up top is you can just leave them there the whole season and sit back and se how they fight it out for top spot in the forwards points table.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      And the worst thing is when they blank for a couple of weeks in a row whilst bamford and Antonio rake in points 😀

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Bamford could blank for more than just a couple of weeks...

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Maybe, but last season he didn’t really do that, and he is already returning every other game this season

          The short answer is who knows but I think a lot of this 3 premium histeria will go quiet if the likes of bam, dcl, Wilson, Antonio etc can go on a strong run again

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            It is like the hysteria around Leeds assets. What if that goes quiet?

            You still going to go without Lukaku who are capable of murdering defences?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              *and Ronaldo*

            2. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 3 days ago

              He hasn’t scored against 1 good defence yet so let’s see how he does in the next 2

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      plan is to get rid of Ron GW8 WC but wonder how difficult that is gonna be to do once I get there

    3. Malkmus
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Absolutely. I think Ron-Rom-Salah-Trent in 343 is the way to go

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah, agree.

      2. bodgejob
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I don't think 343 works (unless the 3rd striker is 6m)

        442 or 433 are the formations I could get to work

        1. Malkmus
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I think the jury is out on 343 or 442 with the big 4, I'm going:

          Sanchez
          Trent-Shaw-Marcal (4.0-4.0)
          Gallagher-Gray-Salah-Raph (4.5)
          Ron-Rom-Ant

          But if gallagher/gray drop in form then may have to go 442. Hopefully other cheap mids hit form to swap in/out

    4. Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      You sound like you've never played this game before!

    5. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I think it's not as bad to go triple premium as I originally thought.

      For e.g. you could easily do ronaldo + 4.5 fwd/mid to any 2 of the mid priced (7.5-8m) fwd or mid in 2 transfers.

  9. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Tsimikas to Marcal or Coady -4 or just play Veltman (double Brighton defence)?

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Just play Veltman. I got Marcal this week. A bit more risk than Coady.

    Hi guys, need a hand - whether to save FT or make small change in prep for weeks to come.

    It'll be good to see how KDB comes along, wondering if there may be a plan to get him in at some point or stock up city defence.

    Sa (Steer)
    TAA, Shaw, Marcal, (Livra, Williams)
    Salah, Jota, Mount, Benrahma, Allan
    Ronaldo, Jimenez (Antonio)

    A) Save FT
    B) Benrahma to Sarr or Gallacher
    C) Mount to Raphina to prep for Chelsea def
    D) Take a hit to get in Man U mid.
    E) something else?

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Save ft

  11. BOOM XHAKALACA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Jota or Raphinha? Have Salah and TAA, no Bamford

    1. Reinhold
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Jota if Firmino declared unfit, at least

    2. Goonerly
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Tough one. Depends what you do with the extra money if choosing Raph, I supopose.

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I’d wait for Bobby news is there is any forthcoming but for now I would reluctantly still say jota

    4. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Raphinha will explode in next 5 matches

    5. TKC07
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      • Jota for the threat, as he plays as #9. Even though it may be short term based on Firmino's return.
      * Raph for longevity, fixtures and value for money.

    6. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Jota. Simply because he plays for a much better team.

  12. Goonerly
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Do we think R. Pereira is back to starting at RB this weekend?

    Has been on bench last two games, so should be over his injury, right?

    1. bodgejob
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Wouldn't bring him in until Leciester shore up the defence

  13. Killitzer
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Morning all

    On a WC and debating which team is better-

    a.
    Sanchez Steele
    TAA Duffy Livra Marcal WHITE
    Salah Greenwood McArthur JOTA DOUCOURE
    Ronaldo Lukaku Hwang

    b.
    Sanchez Steele
    TAA Duffy Livra Marcal LAPORTE/£5.5m
    Salah Greenwood McArthur GRAY RAPHINHA
    Ronaldo Lukaku Hwang

    Leaning towards A though Jota is a bit of a rotation risk but has 2 good games ahead, as does Raphinha.

    Cheers for any input.

    1. Return of the FF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Hwang not nailed to start by any means

  14. TKC07
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Who would you start this GW?
    A) A Christensen (TOT A)
    B) B White (BUR A)

    1. Rbyrne95
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Will Christensen start?

          It's hard to shift him unless you're keen on the likes of Gallagher away at Liverpool this week, and beyond?

          I like B mate how come Torres over Jota?

          My team is the same as B but Jota and Marcal over Torres and Semedo.

          Do you think Tierney is worth it am not sure

          1. _Ninja_
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            If he stays fit he is but that's an issue. I could go B with Antonio and Raph and a cheap Mid and Play 433. Means downgrading Tierney to White or Semedo to Marcal.

            1. Rinseboy
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              prefer B defo. Just not sure on Torres over Jota or Greenwood. What's your thinking? his fixtures are not great after SOU

                yeah Jota a great option for next few weeks til Firmino back. Only reason i went GW in A was no Ronaldo. Now thinking Antonio is the better option over Jota/GW/Torres..

        Jota cap? Have salah and Taa but thought it might be a way to differentiate slightly and he’s got the big haul in him or is it just silly and overthinking

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          the latter

          Not as fresh with midweek game and palace seem to be doing well defensively. Doesn’t feel like the best fixture but he really only needs a goal for it to be worth it. Assuming he outscores the other 2

          Wouldn't consider Jota (C) over Salah myself

        Start Benrahma or Sissoko

        1. bodgejob

          Benrahma

          I'm not convinced Bebharma starts but I guess West Ham have to assess it over the next few days.

          So we're all guessing...

        Any wildcarders looking to hold Antonio?
        Would love to see your midfield 5, thanks

          I would hold him if you're not going 3 premiums

          1. Reinhold
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Could even hold him with 3 premiums. Something like this

            4.5 / 4.0

            TAA, Shaw, Marcal, Livramento, Williams

            Salah, Raphinha, Gray, Gallagher, 4.5

            Antonio, Ronaldo, Lukaku

            1. bodgejob
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Need to have had caught all the price rises to afford that - I'm 0.4m off!

          2. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            My main issue is poor team value 100.4 and already off to a slow start so thought Bamford a good option. Next week of course will be tough not owning Antonio

        2. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          hold and Sissoko is what I'd do on WC I think - I removed him but for Ronaldo(c) next week

      • bodgejob
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Is three premiums really so bad? No Antonio is what I fear most - not feeling bad about missing out on Jota, Greenwood or Torres

        Sanchez Steele
        TAA Shaw James Semedo (Livramento)
        Salah Raphinha Saka Gray (Sissoko)
        Ronaldo Lukaku (Scarlett)

        Upcoming FTs on Gray-> Gallagher, Sanchez->other 4.5m when fixtures turn, Saka punt to someone else if required

        1. Reinhold
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I'd downgrade James or Shaw and upgrade Saka to Jota or Greenwood personally

          1. bodgejob
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Hmm yeah it's an option. Fancy my Saka punt though and turning Shaw into Cancelo - don't want to have to start a 4.5m defender eveyr week in a 442

          The interesting thing about three premiums will be if Son emerges. It will be easier for most three premiums to shift to Son. People are talking about three premiums as the unbalanced teams but there are different types of balance. A three premium can't move as fluidly around the low-mid price players but they can adapt quickly to the emergence of other mid-premiums.

          The thing that I'm not seeing much is three premiums with a 0.5 itb to allow them wiggle room to fix problems. It's totally possible to do and I think that 3P who don't do that are going to find themselves in a hole almost immediately

          1. bodgejob
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Interesting points, thanks. An injury or lack of patience with Ronaldo does provide the ultimate power moves of Ronaldo->Antonio/Bamford and a 5.5+m up to Son

            Yes my team above has 0.4m ITB - unfortunately 0.1m/0.2m short of Shaw -> Cancelo in GW8 - but I'm not completely inflexible

              Tbh as much as natural urge is to maximize your budget and step up from one price bracket to another I would prefer to keep that 0.4 so that emerging players around your existing price points are available to you when the pop up a 0.1/0.2

          HELP PLEASE

          On wildcard and regretting selling Antonio on Sunday. Bought for 7.5 and he is now 7.9 and potentially dropping again tonight.

          I think my team looks best with Antonio Salah pairing instead of Pogba/Ronaldo but feel daft for the price fall. Would you therefore go:

          A) Antonio/Salah
          B) Pogba/Ronaldo

          Any thoughts on the price falls also welcome.

          Thanks

            I don't like the Pogba pick, however, I also wouldn't recommend getting Antonio back in if you lost the value you had in him

            Same situation but looking at different moves.
            Are you playing 3 up top and do you have viable bench options?
            I bought at 7.6 sold 7.7 and now have to pay more.
            Do we think he’s price locked? If he’s def dropping don’t want to bring him in on wc.
            Tough choice. Prob going Bamford this week just not sure if I go 3 up top

            1. Dammit_182
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Thanks Guys,

                I’ve got a healthy bench now so easy to cover:

                Guita (4.0)

                TAA, Cancello, Samedo (Marcel/3.9)

                Saka, Jota, Salah, Grey, (Gallagher)

                Lukaku, Bamford, Antonio

                Just play Marcel this week instead of Antonio.

                Or Ronaldo/Pogba instead of Antonio/Salah.

                He’s close to falling tonight but not guaranteed….

                  Fairly similar, also going guiata even though pool this week

                  I got James over Cancelo and Livra 5th def
                  I keep coming back to a better midfield but that rules out luk ant bamf
                  What’s your plan if Gray Saka don’t deliver?

                  1. Dammit_182
                      1 month, 3 days ago

                      Hi HMC,

                      Plan is one of Grey, Saka or Jota go in week 7 (likely Grey) to a 4.4 mid to upgrade defenders to James/Rudiger for the Chelsea run.

                      Saka is in for Burnley then spurs/Brighton first sub or injury cover before the ticker goes green again.

                      Before taking out Antonio I could have afforded Raphinia but the 0.2 loss killed me (doh!)

              Thoughts on this order among my fodders hehe. Need to play two this week as I'm holding Antionio

              1) Tsimikas (could be a cameo, but high upside if he starts and more likely than not to stay on the bench if not)
              2) Gilmour (possibly somewhat attacking role?)
              3) Omobamedele (better CS odds than Coufal, unlikely to come on if he doesn't start)
              4) Coufal (Some attacking threat, nailed, but unlikely to keep a CS)

                Carabao cup midweek is where Tsimi will start
                Would start Coufal (good assist potential) then Williams

              Suggested changes?

              1 FT

              Sanchez
              TAA, Christensen, Marchal, White
              Salah, Jota, Greenwood, Benrahma
              Ronaldo, Jimenez

              Subs: Steele, Sissoko, Livra, Antonio

              0.3 in the bank

                  Could well do. Antonio to Bamford also tempting, but Think Antonio can do as well as Bamford moving forward

              In a 12 man draft league, so the striker options are at a minimum.

              For a truly woeful one week punt.

              A) King (nor)
              B) Joelington (LEE)
