Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 7?

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are looking to Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham United for the Gameweek 7 captaincy, and as per usual, the Captain Sensible article is here to highlight which assets have the best chance of hauling.

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 7 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.


Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) leads the captain poll so far, having gained just under half of total votes from our users at the time of writing.

Second-placed Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) has received 24.01% of votes ahead of his home match against Everton.

Michail Antonio (£8.0m) occupies third-place with 7.49%, with the top-five list completed by Mohamad Salah (£12.6m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.9m), with 3.26% and 3.14% respectively.

        He's in from GW 12-21 for me I think

        No thanks. Premium mid which has only started one match this season and likely will not feature every match due to being made of glass.

        The KDB ship has sailed.

        Hey. How is this looking?
        I can redo the team weekly with my work FF.
        Can also set 2 boosters (double points)

        Rudiger Semedo Cancelo
        Salah Saka Raphinha Grealish
        C Lukaku B Antonio B Ronaldo

        Should I swap Grealish, Saka and Cancelo?

        Chaps...I don't really watch Crystal Palace much so I would be grateful of a couple of opinions on Conor Gallagher. I know he can't sustain 6.4ppg in the long term but does he look like a genuine 10 goals, 10 assists prospect for this season? I need a < 6m fourth mid and on paper he fits the bill.

          Lol no, if whole palace is even able to outscore lewandowski for a season i would be suprised. Palace have big problems in the final 1/3. Gallager gives them more opportunites but if he cant get more help from his teammates there will be no goals or assists

        How many minutes do you need for each Million you spend on a City player?

        I’m considering Cancelo Dias Foden on a wc, which is 20.0 total for 3 players in the scoringest team in the league, as long as I have a playing bench this feels like a pretty good way to tap into the numerous 5-0 wins and the occasional times that Foden gets 18 points?
