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

    *unexciting question alert*

    Which goalie this week?

    a) Sanchez v CP(a)
    b) Foster v New(H)

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year

      Sanchez has the better defence in front of him.

    E Mendy is back

    Pulisic what a pity..

      Why, what’s happened?

        Sorry, I read that as Pulis and was trying to find out what happened to him!

    Why did Andrew Robertson not play last week?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rest

    Got Torres as my 3rd sub. Because on the one hand I think Chelsea will keep a clean sheet this week, and on the other I'm expecting Jesus to start, meaning he could only get me 1pt off the bench.

    Anyone starting Torres this week?

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yes.

      Why would you bench him? Just sell him, innit.

      1. daftvaper
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 14 days ago

        I'm going to but have already used my FT for the week. Can't be arsed with Pep roulette

  6. Gomolon

    Sarr or Gray for this week (going to play WC next week)

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Sarr

    2. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Gray

    3. antis0cial
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Tough one. Norwich are awful but Everton have a lot of attacking options out injured so I'd probably side with Sarr, just.

    4. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Sarr

    5. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Sarr

  7. antis0cial
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    WC intact, will play it next week or week after I suspect.

    Raph to Sarr or save?

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Semedo
    Salah Jota Greenwood Benrahma Raph
    Ronaldo Antonio

    Livramento Ayling

    1. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      save

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Save but I would start Livramento over Semedo

  8. checkit_j
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Pressed the WC
    Help me choose please . A or B

    -A-
    Sanchez
    Taa - Alonso - Shaw ( Livra, Omo)
    Salah - Sarr - Benny - Gray (McArthur)
    Antonio - Jimi - Cr7

    -B-
    Sanchez
    Taa - Rudi* - Shaw ( Livra, Omo)
    Salah - Sarr - Allan* - Gray (McArthur)
    Antonio - Lukaku* - Cr7

    1. checkit_j
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      B - Has duffy for Shaw - sorry

    2. JuliFPL
        9 months, 14 days ago

        A has better balance, maybe avoid Alonso with Chillwell lurking around the corner ? Cancelo ??

        1. checkit_j
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Cancelo is a good shout but two tough weeks coming up, would james be better?

          1. JuliFPL
              9 months, 14 days ago

              It's WC team, Cancelo will be fine as a long term pick. Chelsea wingbacks might see plenty of rotation over a season.

              1. checkit_j
                • 2 Years
                9 months, 14 days ago

                Valid. Man City players are just as likely rotated. But it's worth a punt i guess.

                ronaldo to Lukaku would be my biggest need with A though.

                1. JuliFPL
                    9 months, 14 days ago

                    Yes they are but Cancelo is fine on either wing, Chelsea could use four players for two positions.

            • The Mentaculus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              9 months, 14 days ago

              I have been giving this advice too, but at this point I think you should just go with Alonso if you want him. Chilwell will probably, eventually, reclaim the spot but doesn't seem like happening anytime soon

          2. SHOWSTOPPERRR
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            A I would take a punt on Jimenez spot with an Armstrong. And keep the money to upgrade gray to raphinha in coming weeks if fit and also rudi in place of Shaw.

            1. checkit_j
              • 2 Years
              9 months, 14 days ago

              I have a feeling Jimi will eventually get his rhythm back but I like the Armstrong punt.

              I was going to do Shaw to Rudi after the villa game.
              He is now crossing in to Ronaldo A LOT.

          3. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            I'd ditch Shaw on a WC

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Raphinia, Benrahama over Sarr/Gray

        2. timPgoodwin
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Is Ramsdale first choice now?

          1. Snooze ya lose
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            I believe so

        3. Matt42
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Raya
          Trent Semedo Liv
          Salah Jota Torres Ben
          Ronny Antonio Bamford*

          Duffy / Christensen / Allan

          Best FT move here?

          A) Bamford > Armstrong
          B) Torres > Sarr

          1. Snooze ya lose
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            B

        4. DannyDrinkVodka
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          It probably makes sense to just keep Bamford if you’ve got him, similar situation to Antonio last week

          1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Entirely different, Antonio was a suspension. Bamford injured and don't know the return date as well.

          2. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Antonio wasn't injured

          3. JabbaWookiee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Unless you are planning a straight swap for Antonio

        5. timPgoodwin
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          What's the best Bamford and Raphina swap? 14.6m to play with...

          Already got Benrahma, Greenwood, Gilmour, and Antonio

          PLEASE SEND HELP LOL.

          1. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            In all honesty, I have the same 2 and can’t see anyone that I really want to replace them with this week, so I’m going to ride it out and let my bench do it’s job if they don’t play.

            If Ings had better fixtures it might be worth doing Bamford to Ings but he doesn’t, so probably not going to do any better than what’s already on my bench.

            The rest of the available strikers in that price range are either gash or got horrible matches for the foreseeable.

            Maybe Gallagher, but again, is he really that much more likely to outscore Gilmour or Marcal, who would be his replacement.

            If the Leeds pair are out for a while then, yeah, worth shipping out. But if they’re only out for a week would you want to go without them next week for the level of player you’d get in for them this week?

            1. timPgoodwin
              • 7 Years
              9 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah, I've heard reports Bamford may be out for a while so might look at riding it this week and Wilding next week if that's the case. Feels weird to bring something like Sarr and Pukki in for a minus 4 lol

              1. Nomar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 12 Years
                9 months, 14 days ago

                Exactly.

                If Bam is out for a while you want enough transfers or use your WC to fund a decent replacement, not scrape the bottom of the barrel this week out of desperation just to put another starting striker in your lineup.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Sarr, Gallagher, Zaha wouodl all be good options. Up top is more difficult - ASM for a punt?

          3. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Adam Armstrong?

            Would hold Raphinha; may play this week

        6. Milkman Bruno
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Ronaldo can take his 50 shots a game now and Cavani can clean up the spillages. 2 predators in the box, just what we needed. Can’t be relying on the young players or Bruno to score 20+ from midfield every season.

          1. mynameisq
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Can't see many scenarios where they both start though, only in a chasing need a goal scenario would they both be on the pitch imo

            1. Milkman Bruno
              • 1 Year
              9 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah, they don’t have to start together for the above to happen I guess. Cavani is too good to just bench every week though, he will start some games.

              1. Pep bites Kun
                • 5 Years
                9 months, 14 days ago

                You'd think so. It's going to be interesting to see how that pans out.

          2. Maeki2
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 14 days ago

            You dont buy the best fotball player in the world and bench him. Ronaldo plays when fit

          Who is West Ham's penalty taker?

          1. Nanoelektronicar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Not clear.

          2. G-Whizz
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Rice, Antonio or Noble.

            Take your pick 🙂

            1. Eddie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              9 months, 14 days ago

              I'll take Antonio thank you.

          3. Milkman Bruno
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Rice imo. Noble when on the pitch but that might change after his miss and Antonio was suspended for that game. I think Rice->Antonio->Noble

          4. mynameisq
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Nobody knows, Antonio took and missed the last one and noble doesn't start otherwise it's him

            I'd say maybe Antonio gets one last try, he didn't take an awful one it was just a normal pen and decent save

            1. Milkman Bruno
              • 1 Year
              9 months, 14 days ago

              Noble missed his last one last weekend too. Rice had it in his hands until the sub was made

              1. mynameisq
                • 8 Years
                9 months, 14 days ago

                Didn't notice that, the rice holding part. That said Antonio wasnt on the pitch either so who knows 😛

              2. Eddie
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                9 months, 14 days ago

                Ah, but Antonio not on pitch?

                1. Milkman Bruno
                  • 1 Year
                  9 months, 14 days ago

                  No he was suspended so it’s still possible

            2. Boxwoods
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              9 months, 14 days ago

              Maybe short of truly awful, but it was not a good effort. Wouldn’t let him near them again if I were Moyes.

          5. SHOWSTOPPERRR
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 14 days ago

            Someone from the bench.

            Prob Rice, Moyes said that he was going to take it last week till Noble came on.

                Digne is out. "Rafael Benitez confirms that Jordan Pickford and Lucas Digne have been back in training, with his other sidelined players "getting better" but still not available". Just in twitter

          So tempted with Raph > Sarr. Just fed up with Leeds.

            This is a tough one because if Raph is fit, he will last a lot longer than just the next 2 weeks unlike Sarr

            If you are planning WC in 7/8 then probably good idea- just think you may want him back soon if turns out fit

          If Rodgers comes and hints about nacho starting, would you do bam to nacho free?

            I'd be tempted, yeah, but wouldn't go there unless Rodgers hints at it.

            Iheanacho?

            “It’s all deciding on how we want to play. It’s great news because that wasn’t the case with Kelechi when I first came in. His approach and confidence is improving. It’s great that he’s able to make an impact if he starts or coming off the bench. If you play with two strikers, it can affect the balance behind that. Jamie has got three in five games, Ade has scored, Harvey has scored, Youri has scored, the guys you want to be scoring are starting to.”

            With Mount out this weekend I'd love to see us play the team from 2nd half Spurs match (with Mendy:

            Mendy
            Christensen / Silva / Rudiger
            Azpi / Kante / Jorginho / Kovacic / Alonso
            Lukaku / Havertz

            Werner could alternatively play alongside Lukaku. Ziyech had decent performances vs. City previously in his benefit, but played poorly in the cup this week.
