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.

        Thanks. Trying so hard to resist making any changes but feel like my whole bench needs to go! At least 4 moves i want to make

        1. Solanke
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          If you got a gut feeling about a transfer I would defo go for it!

  3. Kaptenen

    Really bad benching headache this week but I feel like I have to play Mbeumo against Norwich.. Who would you bench out of this lot?

    Ramsdale
    TAA - Cancelo - Chilwell - R.James
    Salah - Foden - Raphinha - Mbeumo
    Vardy - Toney

    Foster - Antonio - Livra - Bhill

      • 9 Years

      You’ve left yourself a right problem there I’m afraid.. it’s one that cant be answered I think, but agreed you have to play Mbeumo v Norwich as he’s due a haul

      1. Kaptenen
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yes that is true, thank you for your help!

    2. Solanke
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I have a similar set up as you and my bench is currently looking the same, although Antonio's in 2nd spot... but still mulling over whether I should keep him there or demote Livra to 2nd

  4. cuppatea78

    Thinking of bringing in ESR. Who should make way?

    A) Jota (would free up a nice chunk of money)

  7. Slitherene
    • 3 Years

    First bench Livramento or Gray?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Liv

    2. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I’d go Gray as more attacking personally but it’s a toss a coin job really

    3. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Liv

    4. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Livra

  8. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Worth doing Rudiger to Chillwell/James for free?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yes if you have 2FTs, less so if you only have 1FT

    2. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I wouldn’t. I’d save transfer as Rudiger is as likely to return based on under lying stats imo

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Unless you have 2 of course then maybe

  10. Goonerly
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Got 2FTs - how are these moves looking?

    Azpi --> Chilwell
    Sarr --> Mbeumo

    Leaves me with 0.7 ITB for a Spurs addition next GW (besides Son)

    1. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I’d just do Sarr move n keep 2 for after IB

  11. grennans2
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Coady to Chilwell for a -4?

    1. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Not for a hit no

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      *both for hits

      I’d much prefer Toney but i am very tempted by Antonio and B.Williams -> to Hwang and James -4? Or is Antonio and Christensen -> James and Toney better? Thanks.

    • Smokey_Lowkey
      • 3 Years

      Start 1 from:

      A) Cancelo (mnu)
      B) Hwang (cpl)
      C) Livra (AVL)
      D) Duffy (NEW)

      Tough week!

      1 FT 1.0M ITB.

      1. Smokey_Lowkey
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Eesh, I'm in a similar boat. Antonio is fairly fixture proof I feel, and Leicester defence is not in good shape currently. I would swing towards Cancelo from those, as tough fixture plus he is due a rest...

      2. Vlad Tepes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Cancelo or Antonio

    • Little Red Lacazette

      Gtg? Wise playing Livra over White?

      Sanchez
      TAA Livramento Rudiger
      Salah(C) Jota Foden ESR

      1. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        I'm on White over Livra at the moment. Only decision I've got to make this week.

      2. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yes G2G

      3. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I think Livra has proven his points.

        But you'd be fairly confident of Arsenal home to Watford.

    • Benditlike
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Have 2FT and Azpi who i want to transfer to either Chilwell og R.James. Question is which one do i get?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Just Chil

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Chilwell

    • Ady87
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      What do I need to sort out first and any ideas?

      Chalobah
      Mount
      Gray

      I have Marcal (red flag) and a non playing sub, so need to do something.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Hold Mount.

        Improve on Marcal or Gray...

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Gray

        Mount pictured training and would expect him to play tomorrow

        Chalobah is good value and starts a fair bit with little cameo threat and decent goal threat - a better option than Christensen IMO

    • ZakyJ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Start Livra or Semedo?

      1. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Livra.

      2. Mozumbus
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Livra

        • SalahFingers

      3. Vlad Tepes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          You've got to start Antonio but Livra is a great option too.

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

        3. Smokey_Lowkey

          Antonio

        4. SalahFingers
          • 4 Years

        Salah (c) Foden Gray (Benrahma Brownhill)
        Vardy Aubameyang Antonio

        Is this order ok?

        It doesn't feel right benching Benrahma, or Duffy (NEW).

      6. Somnus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Play 2:

        D) Antonio

        1. SalahFingers
          • 4 Years

          Gotta be Cancelo and Antonio

      7. TeddiPonza
        • 11 Years

        Current team:

        Sanchez (Begovic)
        TAA Cancelo Rudiger White Livramento
        Salah Raphinha Foden (Sarr Benrahma)
        Vardy Antonio (Scarlett)

        1,5m in bank and 1 FT (Still got WC). Which option is best?

        A. Vardy to Kane
        B. White to RJames now and Wildcard next week
        C. Rudiger to RJames/Chilwell now and Vardy to Son next week
        D. Save transfer and Vardy and Sarr to Son and Jimenez next week
        E. Sarr to ESR/Mbeumo now and Vardy to Kane next week

          1FT, 0.4ITB, WC intact

          Which move shall I make with short term perspective:
          A. Ings to Jimenez (Ings red flagged)
          B. Ings to Edouard
          C. Azpi to Chilwell
          D. Roll and play Veltman
          E. Any other better move
          Thanks

          Ramsdale (Foster)
          TAA James Cancelo (Dias, Livra)
          Salah Foden Raphinha ESR (Brownhill)
          Vardy Antonio Toney
          2ft, 1.3itb

          Dias ➡️ Chilwell the right move?
          If so do I bench Cancelo or Antonio?

          Cheers
