Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 14?

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) looks to be the leading captain candidate once again in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), as Liverpool travel to Goodison Park to take on their city rivals in Gameweek 14.

However, there are other options on the radar too, including Harry Kane (£12.3m), Jamie Vardy (£10.6m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.9m), who has now outscored his Egyptian team-mate in each of his last three outings.

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 14 captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of Tuesday’s 18:00 BST deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

Mohamed Salah is the leader of the Captain poll for the seventh consecutive Gameweek, with just over 50% of total votes from our users at the time of writing.

Second-placed Harry Kane has received 14.18% of votes ahead of his home match against Brentford, and should be raring to go having been handed a rest over the weekend.

Jamie Vardy occupies third-place with 7.66%, followed by Callum Wilson (£7.4m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold, with 4.21% and 3.83% respectively.

MOHAMED SALAH AND TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD

    I remember picking a captain each week. It’s been a while.

    Would you sell Antonio or Jiminez this week to free up budget for Jota?

    1. TopBinFc
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Nope, both at home with decent fixtures

      • Camzy

        Roll FT and then next week do Jimi + mid > Jota + XX

      Maddison or Gundogan/Silva for Mbeumo? (Already got vardy)

      Good Evening all!! Any Palace fans around?!! Does Benteke start tomorrow night??! Or benched like team news on here suggests

      Captain Salah (eve) or Kane (BRE)?

      1. TopBinFc
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Got to be Salah, Kane still unknown or should I say spurs

        • Solanke
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Salah for(eve)r

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I can’t remember last time I didn’t pick salah !!

        • lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Salah, Spurs are frustrating to watch, lack creativity to break down even a half decent defense at the moment

      2. Tmel
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Ramsdale
        TAA James Alonso Cancelo
        Salah (c) Jota Gallagher
        Antonio Kane Hwang
        (Foster Livra Mbuemo Brownhill)

        1FT & 0.2ITB

        G2G?

        1. Solanke
          • 3 Years

          G2g

      3. Royal5
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Duffy/Jesus > Alonso/saint Max (-4) make sense?

        1. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Downgrading Jesus to just a saint..oh boy

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Jesus is killing me owning

          2. Royal5
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Jesus has been a shocking pick for me. No where close to being worth his price tag.

            1. Finding Timo
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Too inconsistent

              1. Royal5
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Are you giving him another chance? Got a feeling he will be benched vs Villa

        2. Dr Mantis Toboggan
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I’ve made that same move with Jesus. Planning on ASM to one of the Watford boys in 2-3 GW

      4. putana
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        every week I consider the player who i would captain under normal circumstances. This past gameweek was the first one where they outscored salah (vardy)

      5. Pep Roulette
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Guaita or Sanchez?

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            New manager bounce, tasty fixtures. Worth a shout.

          2. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Good idea getting Utd now

      7. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        1. Royal5
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          As long as you got a sub who scores 2 points it doesn't really matter.

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Home to Brighton , I expect at least a goal

            1. Royal5
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              1 goal in his last 7. Brighton are decent atm. I hope, but expect nothing atm

        2. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I think plays

          Anyone for Trent skipper? Are Everton still vulnerable from set plays or has Rafa rectified this?

          1. Meechoo115
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Don’t think Rafa has rectified much. But Everton could reasonably score which dents Trent appeal. Trent is a better punt at home. Or v wolves perhaps

            Would you make any moves here?

            Or bank the transfer and gtg?

                1 month, 19 days ago

                If Foden is doubtful you could consider Gundo? Or switch out Duffy

                1 month, 19 days ago

              • FITZ-G
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  Foden to Jota and maybe upgrade Duffy to Lamptey following GW.

                  Cheers. Foden to Jota is something I am considering.

                What are views on Broja as 3rd striker option?

                      1 month, 19 days ago

                      Played in a wing forward role v Liverpool.

                        Oh sorry my mistake - maybe then worth considering although much prefer Dennis

                    Just listened to the captaincy scout cast.

                    Seemed like the upshot what you can only captain a Liverpool player or maybe Pukki this week. And you can only really captain Salah for Liverpool.

                      I genuinely think Kane is the one this week. But I don’t have the balls to do it.

                      1. Meechoo115
                          1 month, 19 days ago

                        Tierney & Tony out for Cancelo & Dennis (-4)?

                        Or only Tierney out with 0,7m ITB, but for who?

                                My current back 5 are: Tierney, Rudiger, James, Reguilon, Livramento

                                        With all them price rises, I'm priced out basically

                                        0,7ITB 1FT

                                        Sanchez Foster
                                        Tierney, Rudiger, James, Reguilon, Livramento
                                        Saka, Raphinha, Salah, JOta, Son
                                        Toney, Vardy, Perica

                                            1 month, 19 days ago

                                            You would have to lose Vardy or son. Which I would do soon

                                    wouldnt bring in cancelo for a hit. decent chance he gets rested

                                        amazing how one completely random person telling someone that they think their player will play makes them feel better.

                                        Anyway, Alonso to start this gw?

                                          Do you own him? … if so, we’ll of course he’ll play … and haul too.

                                            No I don’t, considering Dias to him for free.

                                            THINK so. But could see Azpi or CHO cause an issue somehow.

                                            More likely to play than James sadly for me

                                            Salah wont be rested this week and is odds on to be captain. not sure why there's talk of him being rested.

                                            he will most be definitely rested against a c milan just before the villa game that weekend.

                                            Could well see him rested , home to newcastle for the midweek game that follows villa so that he gets recharged for the Spurs game on that weekend/

                                            hypothetical.

                                            Really need some inspiration…

                                            I really want Mbuemo and Jesus out. However I’m thinking that the smartest decision, with the increased possibility of players getting rested going into a set of midweek fixtures, might be to get Duffy out for someone like Dier to ensure that I get a full 11 playing this GW.

                                            Thoughts on these possible moves…

                                            A - Duffy -> Dier/Tomiyasu/Lamptey
                                            B - Mbuemo -> Gallagher
                                            C - Jesus -> Wilson
