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

    I gathered Salah would be easily the most voted for, and the public captain poll isn’t necessarily the best thing to go off, but I’m surprised to not even see Vardy in the top 5. Did that many people sell him?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 18 hours ago

      He's 5th now.

    2. aapoman
      • 8 Years
      21 days, 18 hours ago

      out of form. And since most people (over 70%) already have Salah are you really going to captain Vardy over him.

    Hi all

    Would you do duffy to chilwell this week (already have james), or roll the transfer if it meant i’d be able to afford havertz and vardy to son and jesus next week?

      I own Aubameyang and Salah

      I can't see Salah or Liverpool scoring more than 2 whereas Arsenal could score 5.

      Surely Aubameyang Captain.

      1. Claudio555
        • 3 Years
        21 days, 17 hours ago

        I thought the same two weeks ago and captained Auba over Salah. Then Salah scored a hatty at Old Trafford…

      2. Rbyrne95
        • 5 Years
        21 days, 17 hours ago

        Last results aren't always a reliable source for games ahead but last four games vs West Ham Salah's returned five times, with Salah's form too I am just sticking with him. Auba could easily perform though.

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      21 days, 17 hours ago

      Gray to Smith Rowe or Gallagher ? Thanks

    5. Rbyrne95
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 17 hours ago

      We thinking Azpi will start?....

    6. Steirish
      • 7 Years
      21 days, 17 hours ago

      Start Antonio or Livramento?

      1. Claudio555
        • 3 Years
        21 days, 17 hours ago

        Antonio

      2. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        21 days, 17 hours ago

        1st and 2nd bench for me, respectively

      3. The Parrot
          21 days, 17 hours ago

          You will be more annoyed if you start Livra and he concedes while Antonio scores rather than of you start Antonio and he blanks and Livra CS

      4. The Parrot
          21 days, 17 hours ago

          Planning potential moves for next week if spurs look good

          Can either get Son or Kane

          Team looks like

          Ramsdale / Foster
          TAA / Cancelo / Rudiger / Dias* / Livra
          Salah / Foden / Mbeumo / Saka* / D.Luiz
          Vardy* / Antonio / Jimi

          A) Saka + Vardy to Son + Toney
          B) Dias + Vardy to 4.8m Def + Kane

          B) let's me rode the premium Striker fixture run but A gets me two really good players....

                Too much of a rotation risk no? Foden not a better option?

                Currently getting FOMO with making an transfer, especially for ESR or Arsenal. Should I hold or transfer, say, Raph out for ESR or other to prep funds for Spurs players. Debating get rid of Vardy after this GW.
