Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 6?

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers have three main captain candidates for Gameweek 6, with Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m), Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) and Michail Antonio (£7.9m) all in the conversation.

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 6 captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

Ronaldo dominates the vote so far.

The Portuguese forward, who has produced four goals in three starts since re-signing for Manchester United, has gained 47.57% of total votes from our users at the time of writing.

Meanwhile, second-placed Salah has received 27.72% of votes ahead of his away match against Brentford.

Antonio occupies third place with 7.98%, with the top-five list completed by Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.9m), with 3.52% and 2.35% respectively.

MOHAMED SALAH AND SADIO MANE

      Keeping two transfers may free up the opportunity next week to get both Lukaku and a Chelsea defender for the next run of games they have?
