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.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

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.

    Would u start Foster (Lee a) over Sanchez, if playing Duffy?

      Not a chance, personally

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Probably.

    Everyone else having issues with RMT or just me?

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      We all are

  3. CMIUK (Catch Me If U Kane)

    Is jota to raphinha worth a -4?

    1. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      No

      Raph looks very unlikely to make GW8

  4. Original - Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Ait-Nouri back in contention, may affect Marcal's place.

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Wasn't he only unavailable recently? Had been ignored for weeks from GW1, iirc

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Why hasn't he been starting so far?

    3. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Lage probably thought Marcal deserved his place at the time but is aware the fans want Ait-Nouri in and Marcal out.

    Is Reece James fit? I'm confused by the tweet.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      No he's not. He's training in the pool.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      No he's not.

    3. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      He's playing for the England Water Polo team.

  6. Cheeky Onion
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    What are the chances Shaw starts tomorrow? I have him at 30%

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah, no higher than that - I'm selling him

  7. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Sanchez
    Semedo Marcal James*
    Salah Raphinha Saka Gray
    Ronaldo Antonio Toney

    (4.0 Sissoko Livramento TAA*)
    0 FT & 1.7m

    A) Start Livramento (che) and keep James for after IB
    B) James ➡️ Rudiger -4

    Was planning Semedo & Marcal to Cancelo & Dias/Rudiger for a hit in GW8.

    What to do here?

    1. Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'd lean A, James could be a great pick after the break

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      A

    3. Fader
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      A

  8. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Surprised by the lack of interest I. Tomiyasu each week

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Has he got any attacking threat?

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        More than White, I'd say

  9. Uns95
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Bottomed...

    1. Digne > Rudiger OR
    2. Digne, Jota /Greenwood > Rudiger, Raphina for a -4?

    Plan to do AWB > Cancelo in GW8.

    Current team:
    Sa
    AWB Digne Duffy
    Salah Gray Jota Greenwood
    Antonio Lukaku (c) Jiminez

    Foster Livramento TAA Allan

  10. Champions League Varane
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Douglas Luiz or Sissoko to start this week?.

  11. Avery
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Random...Just noticed that when logged in there are way more many posts that in not. hmmm..

  12. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    TAA to Christensen? Seems to be a safe bet for the next two GWs at least with James definitely out and Silva traveling for internationals.

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Christensen may be safe to play but you won't be safe from TAA's haul against Watford.

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Got funds to get him back for Marcal next GW 😉

  13. nedsmula
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Is it worth taking a -4 hit to get Lukaku / Rudiger and Christensen in this week?
    Shipping out Ayling / Shaw and Ronaldo.

    Ta Much.

  14. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Basically have 9 players starting along with Livramento and Williams.
    Don't expect anything from them.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Keeping James?

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Yes both he and TAA are on the bench.
        Only have Sissoko for cover.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          That's my exact bench too.

          You think he'll be fit after IB?

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            50-50 I would say. Definitely back for GW9. Having used my WC I want Reece to stay in my team long term over someone like Rudiger (-4) who has a ceiling of 6 points every week bar bonus.

            If I was to get Rudiger in for a hit it would have been for Williams. Considering that atm.

  15. teneighty
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Kinda tempted to go with a differential Cap this GW, lika Sarr or Raph. Will probably chicken out though and end up with Ron.

  16. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    On a bus to France. Help with my captains and bench?

    Foster
    Cancelo Shaw* Tierney
    Grealish Raphinha Odegaard ESR
    Lukaku(v) Vardy(c) Jimenez

    Bachmann | TAA** Torres Livramento

    Vardy edging it for me right now.
    1.0 ITB. 0FTs

    1. Bream Reaper
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I sold Vardy to get Lukaku..I will probably regret for a long time...

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Oh daym. I sold Kane. Probably should have kept another week and worked more on my defence. Hope Vardy hauls!

    somebody earlier on said telles was playing not shaw,went as far as to say check my record on other united predictions ,sounds like an in the know to me,no need to rush, but im doing shaw to lowton tomorrow

  18. Bream Reaper
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    All suggestions welcome..

    On WC..

    Sanchez/Rams (Foster)
    Alonso Rudi Marcal (Liv) (3.9)
    Salah Gallagher Benny Gray (Bissouma)
    Ronny Lukaku Pukki

    Leaves 1.8 to get TAA back after IB

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

  19. R_R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Have a defensive crisis: White, Shaw, TAA, Ayling and Tsimi

    Best case I have 10 players, but probably only 9 with Shaw likely out.

    Thinking TAA -> Azpi for -4, make sense? (will probably play wildcard in GW8)

    1. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      If you have to take hits, maybe use the opportunity to think mid-long term and delay the WC. Shaw + Ayling > Tomiyasu + Azpi if you can afford it, for example. Or TAA + Shaw > Azpi + Alonso/Cancelo

  20. Kasper the ghost keeper
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Tierney or Christensen (have Rudiger)?

  21. AnfieldLad
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    TAA ->

    A) Alonso
    B) Azpi

    Have Livramento as back up if Alonso doesn’t play, but also some rotation doubts with Jota & Greenwood

    1. AnfieldLad
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      (Also wildcarding next week)

      1. Kasper the ghost keeper
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Azpi and means you're not forced into WC next week if you change your mind

  22. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Best option?

    A. Lowton
    B. White
    C. Marcal
    D. Coady
    E. Henry

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We

  24. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Will have lots ITB after moves below - would consider any changes for a hit during these weeks?

    GW8 Greenwood to Saka

    GW9 Ronaldo to Kaku

    Sanchez
    Rudi/Cancelo/Duffy
    Salah/Greenwood/Benrahma/Raph/Sarr
    Ronaldo(c)/Antonio

    Steele/TAA/Tsim/Scarlet

  25. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    1FT, have Jota and Torres in my XI, backups are Sissoko and Livramento

    A) Sell Torres
    B) Sell Jota
    C) Keep both

    1. NABIL - FPL otai

  27. bso
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    10 man team. Worth 4ph TAA to Alonso (have Rudiger, Ayling, Tsimi, Livra)
    Or to Dias or Cancelo?
    Thanks guys!

  28. Bobby Digital

  30. steven8991
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    TAA & Jota > Cresswell & Son worth -4 ?

    1. Lindelol
      • 3 Years

      No
