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

    CR7 -> Kane a no brained? Was holding for the decent fixtures

      Sorry, bad top post

        No brainer

        2 prime fixtures for Kane, but prefer Ronaldo long term

          Even with the new high press?

            It’s Ronaldo. He will be starting most games

              It will be interesting how rangnick and Ronaldo go together moving forward. Rangnick, short term probably can't move Ronaldo on. However will need to press and work for team, so will need more breaks especially over festive period.

        Hardly a no brainer, no way I would make that move, in fact.

      What to do with this?
      Don’t like Auba, want Jota

      Aubameyang Vardy

          I would play Watkins over Mbuemo. Don’t do anything for a hit

            Thanks. Aubameyang has been a disaster. Want to move him on and bring in Jota, just difficult to accept a hig

            Nice team. Bank it

            5 months, 21 days ago

            Yeah team is fine.

            I'm doing Raphinha > Gundogan but I don't expect that to be a popular move for most.

            1. kysersosa
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              I can see why. Classic nailed on in a poor team vs a rotation risk
              In a free scoring team. I’ve looked at it, but I think Raphina for the next 2. I’ll likely down grade Toney to King and ESR to Gund/B.Silva

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                The problem with that is Toney has 3 good fixtures coming up and is tough to remove as a result until those games are done. He's also one of the best subs to have because he's nailed for 90 every week.

                King's fixtures are awful. Just awful meanwhile. But maybe in GW17 I'll switch to King.

                1. kysersosa
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  5 months, 21 days ago

                  Yeah it would be next week, where I’d bench King and play Livermento (home to BHA), then have him for set for his decent run.

          Will WC gw16, so for the next 2 gws get whom, townsend to:

          A) cornet
          B) moura

              B!

                  5 months, 21 days ago

                  Think so. Short term at least

                • 4 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              Auba + Mbeumo to
              King + Son worth a -4?

              Will bench King for two weeks

              1. XX SMICER XX
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                Quite like it. I wouldn’t mind making those moves but would cost me -8

                  Surely you'd start Reguilon? I'd start him ahead of Hwang

                  5 months, 21 days ago

                  Roll the FT? 0.3 itb

                    • 4 Years

                        5 months, 21 days ago

                      I have exact same team except Hwang instead of Pukki. I am gonna roll I think.

                          Mbuemo Livra Pukki rotate nicely before Xmas

                      Thoughts on bringing in Lamptey?

                          Check his heat maps, he basically plays RW. Great pick at 4.4 imo

                          Not bad but prefer Dier for similar price

                          considering him as well.. it's duffy out for either lamptey or reguilon for me.

                          Brighton have no strikers. Lamptey will pass the eye test and have nobody to finish off his good work.

                          In the words of Dragons Den, and for those reasons it’s a no from me.

                        Hi all, desperate for some advice before the price changes!

                        I have an injured Chilwell and looking to get Jota with 1 FT and 0.8ITB.

                        Would you:

                        A) Foden -> Jota (Chilwell -> James in GW15)

                        B) Raph -> Jota & Chilwell -> Alonso (-4)

                        Hesitant to do A and lose Foden in case he is fit. Can’t wait for press conferences though as I have exact money for B but will be priced out by tomorrow.

                        1. Camzy
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          5 months, 21 days ago

                          I did A last week and would recommend it for this week as well.

                        2. HMC
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          5 months, 21 days ago

                          Both good moves. Prefer to own James myself. Raph has 2 decent fixtures and then I’d def look to move on so up to you if you want to try and maximize points return. Doesn’t always go to plan

                        Fed up of owning Brentford. Fed up of double city defence. Also fed up of constantly being a few transfers behind.

                        Dias, Mbeumo, Toney > Alonso, Jota, King -8?

                        Current team:

                        Trent Cancelo James Dias (Livramento)

                              Can you do Dias Mbuemo to Williams Jota

                                Yeah I can stretch to a 4.7 def. want Alonso though ideally

                              Toney for King isn't for me. But not having Alonso and Jota is an issue.

                                Could sacrifice Antonio instead. Then I could do Mbeumo to Jota for a -4

                                    Move Foden if you've no update that he'll start to Gallagher/Raphinha/Cornet etc.
                                    Livra is nailed. Davis and Manquilo good enablers. Can move Manquilo later if needed.

                                    Bench to weak? Thinking about Mbuemo and Livramento to Gilmour and Alonso.

                                    Kane Antonio

                                    Bench: Hwang, Gilmour, Normann, Foster

                                      If Foden is out he will go for Gallagher instead of Mbuemo.

                                    And second question if I may. Thoughts on Ederson? Never really had a pricey keeper but worth it?

                                      I would rather put the money into a premium defender

                                      Could be. I have Mendy until AFCON.

                                      Lewy got robbed twice just like Sneijder in 2010 🙁

                                        Yeah, I was surprised he didn't win tbh.

                                          Sadly Ballon Dor over rated the UCL or international competitions. Lewa should have won 2020

                                              Jorginho at 3 proves this. He won both. But nowhere near best 20 players in calendar

                                          Anyone have any info on whether or not Dennis will be available this week?

                                          Been pondering for some time now, need help. I am saving a transfer until tomorrow.

                                          A) Do tomorrow, before gw ends:
                                          Jimenez, Raphinha, Williams OUT
                                          Dennis*, Gundogan*, Alonso IN
                                          (-4)

                                          B) Same players OUT over 2 gws for free, but:
                                          King*, Bowen/Maddison*, Alonso IN

                                          Losing Raph for -4 before (BRE) and Dennis instead of King worth it for Gundo over Maddison/Bowen?

                                          What are people thoughts on Allan Saint-Maximin, with Norwich. Have let a few goals in this season but improved under Smith

                                            Would rather have Wilson, if you have extra ££

                                            Newcastle looking arguably worse then Norwich rn.

                                          Cant decide between these two changes please help:
                                          A) Dias to Alonso ( I think Dias will be rested this gameweek)
                                          B) Dias and Mbeumo> Johnson and Jota (-4)
