Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 13?

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) looks to be the leading captain candidate once again in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), as Liverpool host Southampton in Gameweek 13, but are there any viable alternatives to the Egyptian?

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 13 captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

For the sixth successive Gameweek, Mohamed Salah is the leader of the captain poll, this time with a whopping 72.9% 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 Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) in second place, backed by 5.22%.

A surprise inclusion, Emile Smith Rowe (£5.9m), occupies third level with Harry Kane (£12.2m) on 4.33%, followed by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) with 2.69%.

    Sanchez
    TAA - James - Cancelo - Duffy
    Salah (c) - Son - Foden - Raph
    Antonio - Wilson

      Gtg but move Gilmour to 1st sub. You dont want Livramento (away at Liverpool) coming on for Foden, do you?

  4. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Was originally planning Benrahma > ESR, but would it be better to just do Chilwell > James now?

    0.7 ITB

    Sánchez
    TAA | Cancelo | Chilwell* | Reguilón
    Foden* | Gallagher | Salah
    Vardy | A.Armstrong | Antonio

    GK: Foster | Benrahma | Livramento | Sissokho

    1. SkyCell
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I would defo Chilwell > James

    2. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah Chillwell to James. Benrahma to Rowe may be worth a hit

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Agree, especially with that Newcastle defence

    3. Mr Ozil
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Chilwell > James Definitely

    2. MoSalalalalalalalalah

      Solid little team

  8. wulfrunian

    Morning all!Which one?
    a)Foden+Mitchell(-4)
    b)Gundogan/BSilva+Rudiger

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      B) Silva Rudi

  9. BBC_TF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Play Reguilon at Burnley or Mbeumo at home vs Everton?

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Reguillon I think. Mbuemo has to do well at some point but has looked good without producing for awhile now

  10. Trovsmash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    What to do here? 2 ft's .3 itb, any thoughts?

    A. GK transfer
    B. Look to get Jota in
    C. One of Son or Kane in?
    D. Something else

    Foster
    James, TAA, Cancelo, Dias
    ESR, Salah, Raph, Foden
    Toney, Vardy

    Antonio, Livra, Brownhill, Raya

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I wouldn’t be rushing for Spurs. Jota seems a logical move. You have the luxury of GK transfer too so either of those or both for me.

      1. Trovsmash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        thanks mate!

  11. Milkman Bruno
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    On -4 and 0itb. Joys of making early transfer. Not worth a further -4 for Chillwell out right?

    Sanchez
    Trent, Cancelo, James, Reguillon
    Salah, Jota, Zaha, Raphina
    Ronaldo, Toney

    Steele, Bissouma, Chillwell, Davis

    1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Your defence looks fine for now so I'd hold that transfer this week.

      1. Milkman Bruno
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        My thinking also. Thank you

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      In the same position but will hold off any Chilwell move, also no price changes imminent

    3. Millie7
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      no

    4. Milkman Bruno

    In a bit of a pickle and forgot to make transfers before price rises.

        thank yoi

  14. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Would you do Mount and Rudiger to Jota and James for -4?

    1. Millie7
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Just Mount > Jota

    2. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes good moves

  15. HD7
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Anybody feeling uneased at not having Ronaldo and Kane from next GW on?

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not me

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ronaldo, Kane and Salah? Rest of the team can't look too good.

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Can make jt for GW15

        Obviously Dier is the minus but Spurs have some fixtures to take a clean sheet or more.
        If I dont get Ronaldo, I can easily have Cancelo in the team obviously.

        Ramsdale
        Trent Rudi Ramsdale
        Trent Rudi Dier James
        Salah Raph ESR Cornet
        Kane Ronaldo

        Steele Livra Sissoko Scarlett

        1. HD7
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Sorry "Trent Rudi Ramsdale is copy-paste mistake". Its a 4-4-2

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not at all. Have a lot more confidence in Mané atm

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Everything is emotions in this game. One brace from one of them and most will want them:)

    4. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

  16. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Thoughts on WC? Flexible formation with a decent bench to make up for the inevitable rotation during busy schedule.

    Guaita
    TAA Cancelo James Alonso
    Salah Jota Raphinha Gallagher
    Kane King

    Foster Pukki Lamptey Sissoko

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      No city mid?

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Why do people want City attackers during rotation season?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I wouldn't mind having one as i can get a good playing bench, the fixtures are good tbf. Would mean ditching Jota or getting Son over Kane (which could be worth it)

      2. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Who would you get and for who? Jota better option than Silva imo, and Foden in would mean a downgrade somewhere. Had Jesus before wc mut he'll get rotated probably.

  17. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Will Foden be fit?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      1:30 presser

  18. Tree House
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    ls below worth doing for a hit now? Would mean not having Son for Nor at home next week but Jota and Cancelo look like must haves!

    Tierney (NEW) + Son (bur) ---> Jota (SOU) + Cancelo (WHM)

    Thanks!

    1. Buck The Trent

      Yes

    Anyone taking a differential (c) punt? Smith-Rowe for me if I decided too.. Would be slightly uneasy not (C) Salah

    1. Tree House

      na, why?

        I’m asking if anyone was…

    Morning All!

    A) Chilwell to TAA (-4)
    B) Chilwell to James (-4)
    C) Play Antonio

    1. Little Red Lacazette

      A

    Morning all!

    Need a lot of help with this team, been slowly dropping in my work mini league:

    Sanchez Steele
    Taa Royal White Chalobah Livra
    Salah Mount Esr Gray McArthur
    Ronaldo Vardy Edouard

    Got 1ft and .4 itb, do I get rid of Gray for one of:

    Gallagher/Cornet/James

    Or focus on defence?

    Thanks as always

    1. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Downgrade one of CR7/Vardy and do Gray to Jota.

      1. AudereESTFacere
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Appreciate that, will look at a few strikers

    2. Fadi AMJK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Gray to Gallagher
      The defense is accepted for this Gameweek
      Then Mount to B.Silva/ Jota
      Also Edouard to Benteke/ Wood and Bench Gray is a viable alternative

      I would personally wildcard this team if you still have it

      Yes

  23. More Cowbell

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  25. how now brown cow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Chilwell to cancelo or james?

    Have Rudiger.

    1. Van der Faart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Cancelo probably.

    2. dhamphiir
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Cancelo

  26. Fadi AMJK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    So after a lot of thinking I'm down to three possible options:
    A. Duffy to Emerson Royal and Bench Antonio
    B. Antonio to Wood
    C. Save the transfer and play one of Duffy or Antonio (which one of them would you recommend?)

    1. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      C, with Duffy imo

  27. Stewarts11
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Saka --> ESR
    Coady --> Alonso

    For a hit or wait until next GW and do for free then?

    1. alba_geez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I would leave Saka in if it was me, could potentially be up against Ritchie and will tear him apart. I'd wait and see myself

      1. Stewarts11
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        fair, think i will leave also. Just kicking myself because i brought in Saka at GW7 for a total 16 points to ESR 37 lol

  28. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Need to make one of these transfer this week to afford Semedo ➡️ Alonso in GW14

    A) Antonio ➡️ Wilson
    B) Antonio ➡️ Benteke

    If Foden is injured will keep Antonio and do one of the following:

    1) Foden ➡️ B.Silva/Gundo
    2) Foden ➡️ Gallagher

    Which options out of each of them would be your preferred ones?

    1. Fadi AMJK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Wilson is one book away from suspension so I would go with Benteke if you don’t own Gallagher

      And I would choose one of B.Silva/Jota if Foden is out

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Already have Jota. Cheers mate!

  29. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Which option?

    A) Rudiger to Cancelo
    B) White/Foden to Cancelo/Bilva for -4
    C) Save, play White and do B) for free next week and hope Cancelo won’t hurt me too much this week

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA, James, Rudiger, White (Livra)
    Salah, Jota, Foden, Raphina (Sissoko)
    Kane, Jimenez (Broja)

    1.2 in the bank

    1. Van der Faart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      C for me, fancy Rudiger to get a CS more than City.
