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.

    Best option to buyin this GW?
    I already have Rudiger.

    A. Alonso
    B. Azpi
    C. Cancelo

    Will Alonso start ? Is Azpi nailed as James is not fit yet ? Could City keep CS against Liverpool ?

        Interesting…Alonso too risky?

      I’m in the same position think alonso is too risky so between Azpilicueta and Cancelo for me

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Azpi is a boring pick, but nailed I suppose

  2. Lord of Ings
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    A)Start digne
    B)Rudiger for -4

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      B

  3. Dynamic Duos
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    A v B ?

    A) Mount and Tierney/Semedo(defence move gwk8)
    B) Saka and Alonso/James/Azpilicueta (defence move gwk8)

      Andre Villas Boas

  4. Echoes
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Who scores more this week?

    A: Vardy
    B: Lukaku

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      B

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Vardy in form so my money would be on him.

      Leicester squad pretty much all fit so not long before they turn the corner.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      B

      Better player in a better team and playing at home.

  5. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Will James be fit after IB considering he's training in the pool right now?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Should be I think

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      I hope so. I'm keeping.

    3. Horace Pike
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Not based on the pool no

    4. Weeb Kakashi
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Based on the pool no. I think Light training on the pitch comes after Pool. Normal training comes after light training.

  6. Lindelol
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    This is my WC Team

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    White / Cancelo / Alonso / Rudiger ( Livra)
    Salah /Raph /Saka (Biss.- Brownhill)
    Lukaku / Ronaldo / Antonio

    Your advice needed plz.
    Could also do Ronaldo+ white to Vardy + Dias

    1. Pegboy
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Think I prefer Vardy and Dias

  7. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Jota to Raph worth -4?

    1. CMIUK (Catch Me If U Kane)
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      I am pondering over the same move. The question is whether raphinha plays gw8. Even if he misses have livramento as a sub too. Think leeds will sort something out with brasil

  8. steven8991
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    is there any defender better than Cancelo for this GW only? Already have 2 Chelsea defenders (Rud & Christensen)

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Semedo

    2. lilmessipran
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      For this GW lots I'd say

  9. Zimo
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Play Sissoko or Livramento over Trent?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Sissoko

      1. Zimo
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Thankyou

    I've just opened my FPL app up and my team name has changed. Players have changed and triple captain is active. Same on the website. Clearly been hacked.

    Any advice?

        Hackers are just scum aren't they. How pathetic do u have to be to mess with someone's fpl team

    2. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      I did get an email from FPL saying teams are getting hacked in fairness.

    3. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      But more pertently to your question, I remember reading that it might have been Az who got their account hacked and was able to get somewhere with FPL. Perhaps reaching out to him might be a shout?

    4. Lindelol
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Damn - feel sorry for you

    5. Lindelol

      Just want to know when was the last time you checked your team?

      1. Herman Toothrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        A few days ago.

        They've attempted an email address change that I can't cancel

    Hi guys

    How can I find the section where everyone posts the team that is expecting to bring the most points, taking into account only one player from each team?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Scout Picks will be published this evening.

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah he is brilliant, fingers crossed he comes up with something. Although he normally flexes he will have news the day before, and nothing has been flexed, yet.

  13. Bobby Digital
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nah, Lukaku hatty. Livra assist though.

    Marcal or Lowton?

    1. Milk, 1 Šuker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Marcal, but I've been looking at Lowton. xGC and GC numbers aren't great though. Decent fixtures coming up though, more easier than tough.

  18. Cheeky Onion
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    This might be an obvious question, but who to captain this week?

    A) Ronaldo (EVE)
    B) Salah (CITY)
    C) Sarr (leeds)
    D) Antonio (BRE)
    E) Rudiger (SOU)

    Ronaldo the easy pick, but United haven't looked great lately. Sarr v leeds could be a good punt. Rudiger look a safe bet for 6 points.

    Or am I overthinking this and just keep the band on Ronaldo.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      A or D

      1. Cheeky Onion
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Only thing I don't like about it is Brentford's defense. Conceded 1 in 3 away games

    2. Kloppage Time
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      But no obvious answer

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      A

  19. No Kane No Gain
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Who scores more this week.

    A) shaw
    B) gray
    C) rudiger -4

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      B

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Shaw. If he plays.

    3. We Go Again
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      A if fit

  20. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    TAA to Christensen this week and Marcal to TAA next week? Gives me a proper playing 11. Also an option of getting Cancelo if TAA is not fit next week.

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Could work

  21. Shark Team
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    i have 9 playing players atm what do you think of this -8 to field 11 and leave money available for Semedo to Cancelo next gw?
    Out: Omobamidele Mane Ronaldo 4.5fwd
    In: Lowton Grealish Lukaku(C) Jimenez

    I also keep James and TAA with this plan cause i need them next gw

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Who are your players who aren't playing? Omo, 4.5 fwd, who else?

      -8 taking out Mane and Ronaldo seems like the wrong way to go.

      1. Shark Team
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        another 4.5 fodder fwd and James TAA

  22. We Go Again
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Start Livramento or Sissoko?

  23. FPL Brains
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Which one transfer would you make to improve this squad for this week?

    I'm considering;

    Bachmann > Ramsdale

    Bachmann
    Semedo - Marcal - White
    Salah - Gray - Gallagher - Sarr
    Antonio - Ronaldo - Lukaku

    0.9 ITB.

  24. robith
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Sanchez
    Marcal/Cancelo/White
    Gallagher/Saka/Salah/Raphina/Gray
    Antonio/Ronaldo

    Bench is Bamford/TAA/Livramento

    The Q is, is it worth a -4 to ship Bamford out, or hold on now he's already dropped?

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      How confident are you that Marcal starts?

  25. Denis Tueart on the wing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Any thoughts would be welcome, is it OK, could it be better?
    My WC is this:
    Ramsdale (Foster)
    Rudiger Alonso(C) Marcel (Duffy Livramento)
    Salah Raphinha Benrahma Smith-Rowe (Luiz)
    Lukaku Ronaldo Jimenez

    Alonso (C) because I need to catch up a little

  26. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Think I am going to go Bamford -> Toney or Jimenez for a -4.

    Still have my WC but thinking of delaying for at least a few more weeks.
    So would Toney (better long term I think) or Jimenez ( better for the next 3 games or so at least) be a better option?

    Sanchez.
    Alonso, Rudiger, Coufal.
    Salah, Benrahma, Greenwood, Gray, Bissouma.
    Bamford**, Anto, Lukaku.
    Bachmann, TAA**, Bissouma, Tsimikas.
    0.0m ITB, 0ft.
    Cancelo + Raphinha in next week for TAA/Coufal + Greenwood (-4).

  27. NABIL - FPL otai
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Tricky GW to WC it seems.

    Liv vs Mci tricky fixture
    Raph might miss GW8
    TAA might play gw8 - do you keep money for him?
    Drop Ron? Might go big at OT
    Drop Sarr? Good fixture @LEE
    Get ARS? Can easily become a false dawn after nor bur and NLD (I'm not convinced yet)
    Toney/Mbeumo ugly fixtures but then turn gold in 10/11

    People who don't WC and not taking a hit are real winners this week

    1. lilmessipran
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Original plan was to wc gw8..the injury situation forced my hand personally

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Try play with 10 or even 9.. it's gonna be a bad GW for many

  28. Tosa86
    • 5 Years

    DCL is fit or not?

  29. Eastman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Chances of Coufal starting?
    Chances of Shaw starting?

  30. SantaCruz87
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Guys,

    Need some help over here. Which option you would try for this week?

    A) Mane + Armstrong + Webster -> Bruno + Wood+ Livramento and -8
    B) Mane + Webster-> Bruno + Christensen and -4?

    TIA
