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

  2. How I met your Mata
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    A or B

    B Jimi +4 points

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A

    2. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Son will pay back the hit over the next few, if not right away

      1. How I met your Mata
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah I will get him in next week though if not this week but next week it’s not for a hit

    3. Feed tha Sheep
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Jimi could score this week meaning son would have to score and assist to break even. Longer term it will pay off but this week I’m not sure

    4. TopBinFc
        1 month, 19 days ago

        B, get Son next week

    5. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      A) Reguilon in 4-4-2
      B) Gallagher
      C) Maddison

      1. PascalCygan
        • 4 Years

        • 5 Years

      choose one

      A) Coady -> Rudiger
      B) Coady -> VVD
      C) McArthur -> Jota
      D) McArthur -> Maddison

    7. Abra Dubravka
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Who is best Duffy replacement for bench cover up to £4.2m?

      Tsimikas worth a punt for busy schedule?

      1. jason_ni
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Id probably get Williams, more chance of playing, Tsmi might get the odd game, but will be rare.

        1. Lucky Z
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Tsimikas blocks golden slot from Liverpoil

      2. Feed tha Sheep
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Williams or Johnson at West Ham seems to be favoured over Coufal

      3. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Don't block yourself from getting 3 playing liverpool players

      4. Abra Dubravka
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thanks all. I might look at Johnson

    8. jose1
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Foden owners. What are your plans?
      Is holding too risky?

      1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        if you've got a decent bench. hold. assume he's one of the first names on the team sheet when he's fit

      2. antis0cial
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Waiting on Pep, hopefully he gives some indication of fitness

      3. The Knights Template
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Fodenfreude woohoo!

      4. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Unless Pep confirms he's 100% fit then I'm getting Gundo

        1. Vlad Tepes
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          you dont think that is to much of a sideway move if he would be back to the weekend?

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I've got 2FT and no real obvious moves. The extra cash will also come in handy as well...thinking I could get Josh King for non playing striker - gives me a better bench for xmas rotation and Cancelo for example on 4yc

            1. The Suspended One
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I’d be tempted by Bernardo

    9. Greyling
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sanchez
      VVD, James, Rudiger
      Salah, Jota, Raphinia, Gallagher, Benrahma
      Kane, Antonio

      Toney, Livramento, Amartey

      1. Toney to Wilson (start Wilson and bench Benrahma)
      2. Save FT and start line-up team

      1. TopBinFc
          1 month, 19 days ago

          2

      2. antis0cial

        1.4 itb. 1ft, Save?

        Ramsdale
        TAA Cancelo James Alonso
        Salah Jota Foden Raph

        Hi All long time since been on hope all is going okay with everyone.

        Keep making wrong decision after wrong decision and no now stuck on who to bench?

        A) Toney
        B) ESR

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          All ok. I capped Vardy last GW in case you didn't know.

          Toney.

          1. ABC 123
            • 9 Years

            Nice job, last time I captained away from salah he got hatrick

      5. mcsteely
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Best move here with 2FT?

        Ramsdale
        Cancelo, TAA, James
        Salah, Raph, Gallagher, ESR
        Antonio, Jimenez, Kane

        Bench: Foster, Mitchell, Livra, Brownhill

        I'm thinking Mitchell to Regulion this week, and then Jimenez & Brownhill to Jota and a cheapie next week. Any thing better on?

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Like the sound of that. Could you do Jimenez and Brownhill to King and Jota? Gives you some decent bench cover over xmas

          1. mcsteely
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            would be just short for that if I get in Regulion this week unfort. but I do like Josh King over christmas

      6. THE SHEEP HUNTER
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Son(c) for me.
        Just 3% on the poll seems very low.
        Fresh as a daisy and has had more time to absorb Conte's system.
        Playing Brentford at HOME.

        Should easily outscore Salah this week!............... 🙂

        1. Babit1967
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I’m going Kane for the same reason. Gl

        2. TomSaints
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I really want to do that but I’ve been epically punished every time I go against Salah

          1. THE SHEEP HUNTER
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            He may even bring Salah off early in this one(maybe)!!
            I just feel it in me bones this week.
            Go on, do it!

        3. Vlad Tepes
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          It is a big risk, Spurs have been playing really bad and Brentford is pretty good at defending.

          1. THE SHEEP HUNTER
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            The last time they played away they let in three against lowly Newcastle. I reckon Spurs get at least Five here..

        4. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          If only Spurs knew how to score more than one goal a game.
          Hopefully this is Kane's week!

      7. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Sanchez
        TAA James Cancelo Semedo
        Salah Jota Gallagher
        Kane Antonio Toney

        (Gunn Livra Brownhill Sissoko)
        1 FT & 2.4m

        A) Semedo ➡️ Alonso
        (Save FT in GW15 and redistribute Kane funds in GW16)

        B) Sissoko & Semedo ➡️ Gundo & 4.5m def -4

        C) Save FT and do option B for free in GW15

        Thoughts?

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

      8. artvandelay316

        GTG with this squad / bench?

        Sanchez
        TAA, James, Rudiger, Cancelo
        Salah (C), Jota (VC), Gallagher, Bernardo
        Antonio, Vardy

        (Steele, ESR, King, Livra)

        1. Chaldaea
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Some risk of C and VC in the same match but presume it's being done with fear of Salah rotation.

            1. artvandelay316
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I have VC'd TAA the last few weeks, but Jota seems pretty nailed so thought as a backup he would be safe if Salah was rested.

        2. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Get Bilva/Gundo for Raphina or save?

          Sanchez
          TAA, James, Rudiger, Cancelo
          Salah, Jota, Gallagher, Raphina
          Kane, Jimenez

          Subs: Steele, Broja, White, Sissoko

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I think I would save and hope Raph does something in the next 2 - that's my plan anyway!

              Cheers! Bench A bit weak for the christmas schedule, could consider Broja to King, but maby not as he has Che.

              Or White to Reggi

                I'm looking at getting King for non playing striker at some point as think I'll need him over xmas and with cancelo on 4 yc

          A) Toney to Wilson (2 week punt)
          B) Livra to Alonso (4-4-2)
          C) Omo to Reggie (bench Toney keep Livra as 5th def in 3-4-3)

            Do you have 2FT? Looks an easy save if not as I'm not convinced on any of those moves

              True, to get Jota in I'd need to free up funds and do 2 transfers, any suggestions to get him in?

                Wouldn’t fault you for selling Ronaldo

                I’d do Mount and eduard to Jota and Dennis if you can

            Magic 8 ball says the chances are in your favor

            Seemed more tactical against Leeds than dropped. BHA didn't need his height but required pace at the back against Raphinha, James and Harrison.

          Reckon it’s worth a punt on Raph to Gundo
          Or save a FT?
          Thank you

            Hold for now. Could get a return vs CRY with their set-piece vulnerability, and Villa have tightened up substabtially

          Must say, I've enjoyed waiting on Pep to confirm that Foden is out while watching Jota rise and Foden fall in price virtually daily. *sigh*

            Team value isn't that big a deal this season (so far anyway!)

          Livramento => Alonso worth -4 with 2.8ITB or keep?

            I think you already have a strong defence, not sure 5 at the back is the way forward.

            I think 4 strong defenders and a Livra is ideal

            1. Lucky Z
              • 4 Years

              That is my concern also

            Keep this week, 5 at the back is maybe too much

          After another decent week, (63 points) I'm up to 32k OR.. any moves to do here or roll and have 2FT next week?

          Sanchez

            Looks solid, extra transfers could come in handy down the line

          2. LC1

            100% roll

          Have 1FT, pretty happy with my team but unsure on Foden's injury. Thoughts on Foden - Gundogan?

          Cheers

          1. Tonyawesome69

            I would make the move IF Foden is out again

            I'll be doing that if Pep says there's any doubts that Foden plays

          GTG with this squad / bench order?

          Sanchez
          TAA, James, Rudiger, Cancelo
          Salah (C), Jota (VC), Gallagher, Bernardo
          Antonio, Vardy

          (Steele, ESR, King, Livra)

        15. The Mentaculus

          Play Benteke (lee) or ESR (mun)? Was planning to bench ESR but hearing that Benteke could be dropped (havent seen Palace game yet)

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            Play Big Ben

          2. artvandelay316
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Benteke

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Benteke

            Have seen a few posts about Benteke not starting this one due to Leeds press. We shall see if true.

        16. Lucky Z

          Why people still keeping Antonio? 1 goal in last 7 games with no assists while he played 90 mins in each

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            If you've held this long then you can't let that influence the decision - only got to think about how he'll score in the future and fixtures are starting to turn

          2. artvandelay316
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Just haven't needed to sell him yet. Not many other options that seem decent as replacements and all my points coming from defence and midfield regardless of who I have chosen to play or bench up front. If he continues to blank I'll replace him in a few weeks but not rushed really.

          3. Tonyawesome69
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Only 2 games away when fixtures turn now. I'm still not against anyone selling him if people need funds

          What to do here lads? 2 FT 1.0 ITB

          Ramsdale
          TAA Cancelo James
          Salah Jota Raphinha Mbeumo
          Kane Antonio Hwang

          Foster Livramento White Brownhill

            Team looks decent - Hwang and lesser extend Mbeumo looks like the transfers to target in my opinion, rest looks strong.
