Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 11?

Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) looks to be the leading captain candidate yet again for Gameweek 11, but are there any viable alternatives to the Egyptian for this upcoming round of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) action?

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 11 captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

As you can see from the current results, Mohamed Salah is the runaway leader of the Gameweek 11 captain poll, having accumulated just under 50% of total votes from our users at the time of writing.

No other player has garnered more than 10% of votes at this stage, with Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m), fresh from his UEFA Champions League brace, in second backed by 8.19%.

Ivan Toney (£6.6m) occupies third-place with 7.86%, with Harry Kane (£12.1m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.0m) just behind, with 4.01% and 3.9% respectively.

MOHAMED SALAH

    Bottomed. Sorry. Big dilemma.

    Benching nightmare. Who would be your first sub???

    Sanchez
    James - Chiwell - TAA (Livra, Manq)
    Salah - Son - Gallacher - Mane - ESR
    Antonio - Hwang - (Nacho)

    It's currently between Nacho, Hwang and Tony

    HELP. Please. Many thanks

    1. TheBiffas
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'd reluctantly bench ESR

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years

      Iheanacho first sub

    3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years

      id play nacho ahead gallagher maybe

    4. jayzico
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Thinking of Nacho too. Purely because of his minutes, but then I see goals in that mach. Stupidly brought Gall i tis week hence reluctant to bench him?

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Start him over Hwang?

  5. Better Call Raul

      Neither honestly, if must do one of exactly these this week, B will keep Raphinha with a good fixture.

  6. Hazz

    One to bench. Who?
    A) Antonio

      Cheers all. 50/50 on Antonio & Cancelo. Honestly those were the two I couldn't decide on.

      Maybe Antonio to try and take advantage of the opposition. But could backfire!

    9. Flowsick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Bench Antonia, Cancelo has a good fixture.

    should i bring in james for jansson for free?

    i know its a simple question but jansson is one of my subs

    with the move i will be benching one of james, chilwell, foden, antonio, cancelo, mbuemo every week (either voluntarily or forcefully)

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Not this week. Jansson vs Norwich is tasty.

      1. SMOOTH
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Probably play Antonio if I don’t bring in James

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Then get James

        Who scores more this week?

        A) ESR

        B) Livramento

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          A

        2. DavidBadWillie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I think Villa will score, but Livra could get attacking returns

            • 5 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          How's about the bench and captains here?

          Guaita
          Trent Chilwell(v) James(c)
          Foden Havertz Raphinha ESR
          Vardy Jimenez Edouard

          Foster | Cancelo, Grealish, Livramento

          Yes, I don't usually captain players in the same game, but I think the Chelsea players really stand out from the crowd as options in my team this week. What do you reckon?

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Maybe start Cancelo over Eduoard, other than that looks set including captaincy.

            P.s. what are your thoughts on Aubameyang?

            1. Deulofail
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Thanks Holmes. I think it's looking increasingly like Auba is close to nailed. I thought previously that he might be replaced by Laca in some games, rather than playing alongside him. Tbh I think there are enough reasons to steer clear still, including the fixtures and cheaper, better value Arsenal assets.

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Cheers, no vacancy in midfield unfortunately. Was considering him as a punt for WAT and NEW.

                1. Deulofail
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  If you have a plan for the surrounding games to replace him, then I say go for it. As a mid- to long-term option,though, maybe not right now

                  1. Holmes
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    Will be WCing soon and I want to get rid of Ings. So plan is there, just don't know if he is worth picking, couldn't find him much while watching highlights 😀

                    1. Deulofail
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 14 days ago

                      He's in decent enough form. I think his probability of scoring is hugely dependent on the Arsenal performance. How are they going to play for each 5-minute spell? Haha. He's ready for when the team is playing well, I think.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years

                  I was thinking the same thing. I have Vardy but so does everybody else in my mini league. Was gonna swap Vardy for Auba as a punt? Can not make my mind up !!!!

          2. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I think Chilwell scores more than James this week

          I have 2fts. Next week I plan to do Vardy Havertz to Jiminez and Son.

          But what to do this week? Don't want to waste a transfer. 0.3 in the bank.

          Having a major benching headache this week after benching Ramsdale for Foster last week (I know…)

          Currently set up as:

          Ramsdale (100%!)
          Trent Chillwell Rudiger
          Salah Havertz Rafinha Mbuemo Saka
          Vardy Antonio

          Subs: foster Cancelo Livra Scarlett

          Would people agree this is the right benching? Would have Cancelo and Livra starting in any other week with their fixtures/potential

          TAA Cancelo Chill James (Livra)
          Salah Foden Raph ESR (fodder)
          Kane Antonio Toney

          Team is well set up now, the task will be finding differentials going forward.
          Think Raph/Toney could be template players to chop to find them.

          Would you bench boost this team?

          Ramsdale

          James, Rudiger, Duffy, Livra

          Salah (C), ESR, Raphina

          Vardy, Tony

          (Foster, Antonio, Cancelo, Townsend)

          Every year I save it for the doubles and it fails normally

          Any news on Mason Mount injury and if he'll start? Thinking of bringing in Mbuemo for him...

          Who to bench?:

          Cancelo
          Antonio
          Jimenez

            This is my dilemma. Leaning towards Cancelo. Jim has pens, Antonio has a thing for scoring in difficult fixtures.

            But Cancelo is Cancelo.

              I had cancelo on the bench but when you see him have an absolute blinder mid week, you second these type of decisions!

              Crystal Palace are looking quite solid at the minute though so may be difficult to score passed them at home.

              United are so unpredictable and their defence is useless at the mo...

              I'm watching the West Ham game so would be rude not to play him I suppose...

              Well I am also Benching Antonio and Livra
              But Duffy is a dilemma, first if he will start or not and second because I think newcastle are able to score with Wilson fit

          Who to bench, Antonio or Jimenez? I'm tired of looking at this when I'm supposed to be working!

          Should I do

          Vardy -> Auba w FT for a differential? Worth it?

          Everyone has Vardy in my mini league.
