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.

    best midfielder for 6.1?

    1. De has no news
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Sarr (not my personal choice, but popular) I would definitely have Gray!

  2. Simon69

    Madness to consider Bamford > Antonio for a hit and give him the (c) or just stick with what I have and let Christensen cover?

    Sanchez

    TAA, Coady, Duffy

    Salah, Jota, Sarr, Traore

    Ronaldo, Jimenez, Bamford

    Subs: Christensen, Dier, Mendy

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

      Stick

    2. Stram Dunk
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Stick and captain CR7

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

      But play Christensen over Coady

    4. Simon69
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Ta lads.

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

      I wouldn't mind the hit as a long term move, but would still cap Ron.

      Why roll blank dice when you need a 5?

      1. Simon69
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 14 days ago

        I like the odd punt.

    i'm getting rid of bruno and obafemi to bring in ronaldo + 6.1m midfielder.

    whats the best 6.1 midfielder? Sarr?

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yes Sarr, Gray, Gallagher. In that order IMO

  6. Chilli Heatwave
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    9 months, 14 days ago

    How do you feel about captaining a player playing your own team? Do you see it as damage limitation I.e. if you lose you get points, or do you consider a no go area.

    Personally struggle with the idea, hence not captaining Ronaldo, probably, this week.

    1. De has no news
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      come again?

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

        The team he supports in real life I'm assuming

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

        United play villa, as a fan I don’t want to captain him (Ronaldo) as betting against us. Just wondering people’s general thoughts on that matter.

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

          You're just complicating things. The Pro Pundits here have their own teams (Az Brighton, Seb Leeds, Sam and her hubby rival teams etc).

        2. De has no news
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

          I see, you have to play with your head, not your heart in these matters. If you captain him and scores 3, woo hoo...
          If he blanks and Villa win, Woo hoo.... it's a win/win situation..

          As a Villa fan I got over that pretty quickly when we were absolute dogturd for several seasons before relegation.

      Got to play this game without emotions and do it.

  7. Zilla
    • 4 Years

    Do we know if Foster will start?

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

    Do you think Pickford starts given Rafa's comments?

    1. dansully3
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Yes

  9. Spurrsy
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Raphina & Jimenez out for Sarr and Antonio for -4 (won't  be able to do this next week with Sarr price rise) or just roll 2FT into week 7

    1. dansully3
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Definitely

  10. Johnny too hotty

    anyone on a WC this week and want to share their team with me?

    sanchez
    trent livramento alonso dufft

    lukaka antonio

    steele white gilmour scarleet

  11. Trent Robbo 66✅
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Play Semedo or Bamford to Antonio (-4)?

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

      Exact same situation. Might do the transfer.

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

    Interesting that Cancelo was close to a price rise on fplstats most of the week, and now showing halfway to a drop.

  13. Philip Jones's Diary
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Does anyone know when Leeds train? And if so, is it likely anyone will be able to give us info on whether Raphina trains or not?

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Did it!

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      The easiest transfer you'll make all season imo.

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

        Don’t know why I even asked tbh

    3. MagicMessi

      What are you waiting for!?

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Haha

          • 9 Years
          9 months, 14 days ago

    4. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years

      Yes

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

    If playing WC in week 8 would you just switch Raphinha to Sarr on free for next 2 to avoid the “ will he or won’t he play” or with Semedo first on bench would you be relaxed about it?

    A Make move
    B Chill

      Your team isn't burning? I have some, but I'm in the middle of nowhere.

  18. C_G
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    i have Raphina and Bam.

    Should I do Allan + Bam ---> Sarr + 6.7 fwd? (-4)

  19. Zaruto
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Lukaku > Vardy, only this week -4 ?

    1. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 14 days ago

      Lukaku will score

  20. Richarlidad
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 14 days ago

    Did Benitez say anything about Pickford? I'm just looking on Liverpool Echo and I see mentions of DCL / Richarlison & Coleman injuries but nothing on Pickford. Just wondering whether I should start Begovic or not.

    Will u do Vardy to Antonio?

    1. Ricky Bobby 14
        9 months, 14 days ago

        Nah, Vardy could smash Burnley bro

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

      On wildcard. Would you do Jota or greenwood?

      1. Ricky Bobby 14
          9 months, 14 days ago

          Neither

          1. Puntillimon

            • 6 Years

            Who would you recommend in that price bracket?

            1. Ricky Bobby 14
                9 months, 14 days ago

                Grealish/Torres from GW8 will be delightful. Would prefer Sarr over the others

                1. Puntillimon

                  • 6 Years
                  9 months, 14 days ago

                  I can certainly do that in gw8 onwards

                  1. Ricky Bobby 14
                      9 months, 14 days ago

                      Jota is great this GW, however, I see Bobby starting GW7 against City.

                9 months, 14 days ago

                A healthy idea would be to delete the team and move on. Other than that i would get Antonio

                  • 6 Years

                  Really not that bad. Kane should score against Arsenal this week

                    what do you mean. Also i think antonio is too good to resist when you look at the amount of injuries leeds have and how poor they are defensively

                  2. Simon69

                        Looks decent to me - wouldn't be a *massive* fan of starting White & Coufal mind you, but I don't hate them either (I've White first sub waiting to come in if TAA or Raphinha miss out & owned Coufal from GW8 - GW38 last season so well aware of what he can do)

                Play Allan or Marcal. Already have SA and Gray playing. Was going to play Marcal but can see Saints scoring but also can see Allan with a 2/3 pointer
