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

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 19 days ago

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        No idea, they could easily get a rest in one of the next 2.

  5. akhilrajau
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Which -4 hit is worth in order to get jotta?
    A. Saka, Raphina -> Jotta, Rodrigo/lokonga/ any 5.6 mid
    B. Saka, Hwang -> Jotta, davies
    C. Saka -> Gallagher (no hit)

  6. Game...Blouses
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Thought on Eze for a punt this week? Put 30 min in last game. Looked sharp last season.

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Too early.

  7. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 19 days ago

    VC 1) raphinha (PAL), 2) Jesus (av) or foden (av)?

    1. norab
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I'd go Jesus

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Yeh maybe thanks

  8. norab
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Chillwell > Alonso
    and
    Mount > Jota

    For free has to be correct right?

    1. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

    3. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      If Mount starts he could outscore Jota this gameweek.

  9. norab
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years

    • 5 Years

    Really stuck for ideas. Don’t really want to burn an FT.
    Foden great fixtures but if out then maybe switch…?

    2ft, 0itb

    Guaita
    TAA Cancelo James Reguilon
    Salah Foden Jota Gallagher
    Kane Antonio

    Livra Brownhill Davis

    1. patricio33
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Why not switch Foden for Bernardo or Gundi?

  12. Bruno Commando
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Starting 11 and bench order correct?

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo James Rudiger
    (S)alah Jota Raphinha
    Kane Toney Antonio

    Foster Livra ESR Brownhill

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

  13. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Start ESR or KIng?

    Edging towards King due to penalties.

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah probably King due to pens, but both 1-2 pointers anyway I'd say.

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      ESR. Up against a worse defence.

  14. La Roja
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Is she looking doable?

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo Semedo
    Salah Bilva Jota ESR Raph
    Kane Jimenez

    Steele Livramento Duffy Scarlett

    0.8 ITB

    1. Root
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Kane captain?

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Bought him for -4, so I think I’ll just go for it, yes

        1. Pukki Party
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          Kane C for me too. Gl

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      She's so exciting

  15. jai1212
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Considering Saka is fit, even then what should be my move:

    A. Saka to Gallagher/Bowen
    B. Duffy to Emerson (Saka benched)

    1. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Are you saying Saka has been passed fit?

    2. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Emerson a strange choice IMO

  16. Jafalad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Who thinks James will be rested v WAT?

    Tuchel was going to pull him off v JUV but then Chilwell got injured. Given CHS's heavy schedule in the few weeks, some rot has to be factored in. WAT looks a good spot for that.

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I do. But whatevs lots of folks got him and rando players will get rested.

    2. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Defo bench imo

    3. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Could certainly happen.
      String bench very important for the next month

    4. PLerix
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Will surely play after Azpis pale performance at the Ballon d’or

  17. Jimbo-Jones
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    For a 4.4mid (2nd bench) do you prefer

    A. Brownhill
    B. Gilmour

    Got a FT to burn so considering A—> B.

    1. Bada Bing
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Brownhill is more nailed but has zero attacking threat, Gilmour has more upside there, if you are ok with him not playing every week. I would pick Gilmour.

    2. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      B

    3. Echoes

      David Gilmour

  18. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Play one

    A) King (CHE)
    B) Gallagher (lee)

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years

        Interested argument

        Thanks all

  25. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    I don't know what to do this gw. Is it too late to get Gallagher?

    a. Sarr -> Gallagher
    b. Duffy -> Lamptey
    c. other suggestions

    Sánchez
    Cancelo, Alonso, James, TAA
    Raphinha, Salah, Son
    Jiménez, Toney, Antonio

    Steele, Sarr, Duffy, Gilmour
    2 free transfer, 0.4 million in the bank

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Nope. I'm looking forward to buy Gallagher in gw16

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks, might get him this gw then.

    2. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      get Jota or Gundugan imo. could downgrade jimi

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks. Yes but I would like to play Jimenez for this match. I don't like the tripple up with Liverpool but that is just me. Would like Gündogan though!

  26. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Mbeumo > Gallagher for a FT

    Yes or No?

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yes for me

    2. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      So much yes

    3. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I like the move. But would probably save depending on your team, could be benefits to 2 FT next week.

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah I got your point, but an totally sick of Mbeumo and those 2 regular points

  27. Amartey Partey
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    I want to sell Foden for Jota but then I look at Foden’s upcoming fixtures.

    1. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah, don’t do that. Lining up a hit to keep foden personally

      1. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        I’ve also got Mount but it seems crazy to sell him for a hit when he’s got Watford.

    2. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Was there any clarity on the extent of his injury last GW? It may be that he won't start this week either

      1. Amartey Partey

        Haven’t heard anything. If he was definitely out this GW I’d sell.

          I read between the lines of Pep's comments last week and switched him to Jota. Not seeing a reason to regret it yet

      I would make the switch. No telling what Pep roulette will look like even if Foden is fit (which we don't know).

    what to do with Ronaldo?

    keep or sell?

    1. Holmes

      Keep for next 2 and assess his gametime/performance

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      keep

    3. Forza Papac

      Definitely keep. Great fixtures on the horizon.

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        worries about his game time and the new coach's game setup

          Reasonable concerns especially considering his price. But it's Ronaldo we're speaking about. He's not going to sit on the bench often. United have a lot of good fixtures coming up where he'll prey on the mistakes of inferior defenders. Unless you need the money for something else he's a keep.

        That he’ll enjoy watching from the bench.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          not so sure about that.

      Save, bring in Jota next week for free

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        5 months, 19 days ago

        Wont have a bench this gw then. Not ideal with rotations possible.

        1. AK_FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          Fair point. Probably B, just not crazy about getting rid of Raphinha for a hit.

          1. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 19 days ago

            That's the dilemma. Is Jota worth getting in this gw for a hit or no. Cheers

    3. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      B makes sense but could backfire as Raphinha has decent fixtures.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        So just A this gw and B or C next gw?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah, A is safer. C is also fine but it doesnt solve Chilwell problem.

            Thanks

      Wouldn't want to go double up on Chelsea looking at the fixtures ahead. I removed Chillwell for Reguilon.
      Jota is a bargain now looking the the form, the injury to Bobby and upcoming AFCON, BUT Livra got no good fixtures upcoming and I am not expecting any good returns from him in the near future. I still have him, might go for Villa def maybe.

    5. Aadii
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      So I would either save or just move Chilwell out. Won't go for a -4 since with a bundle of fixtures, any player I move in can be rested so I dont wanna regret it on a -4.

        Thanks mate, might just do the chilwell move this gw then
