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

    Not sure what to do here. 2FT & 0.3itb

    Guaita
    TAA – James – Cancelo – Regi
    (S)alah – Jota – Gallagher – ESR
    Antonio – CR7
    Bench: Foster – Bowen – Broja - Livra

    a) CR7 & Broja to King & Wood
    b) CR7 & Livra to King & Alonso/City def
    c) Regi to cheap def
    d) Guaita to Sanchez

    1. Henryyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B with King Alonso would tempt me

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years

      Agree with Henry here

    3. Kryptonite666

      If I were you, I’d do Guaita to Ramsdale.

        0.1 short so would need to move CR7 on

    Any advice? Would like a Chelsea defender but that would require two moves and don't want to remove Son or Vardy yet. Don't want to burn a FT but can't see anything obvious.

    Is Cahlobah an option? Or could save 0.1 by moving Sissoko to a 4.4.

    1. ffs casual
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 27 days ago

      No good options for the next couple of games.
      Toney > King / Dennis
      Coady / White > Alonso
      Watfords next two are Chelsea and Man City

      Chalobah isn't a regular starter. James, Alonso, Rudiger, Silva are the players likely to play most games.

      Yes

    3. BERGKOP

      very much so. Good luck!

  4. Hotdogs for Tea

    I see people selling Foden, is he confirmed out ?

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Price rises. Likely makes the bench I reckon

    2. FPL Theorist

      People can't even wait until Tuesday for information. It's mad!

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Considering deadline is 5am for me as it is with allot of others, any additional information will likely be in the middle of the night. I'll likely make the move to Jota now.

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Above, and Jota a very easy switch to make.

    Best 4.0m & below defender? Johnson or Williams?

    1. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Johnson, looks like he's nailed down some sort of a secure position in the side now

      1. Mr. Mystic
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Hmm, fear Coufal could come back though

        1. fn.jota
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 27 days ago

          johnson played against city and played good, so maybe he is number one now

  7. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Final dilemma:

    A) Rüdiger -> James
    B) Reguilón -> Alonso (double up with Rüdiger)
    C) Save FT

    Cheers and good luck everyone!

    1. Kryptonite666

      Save IMO. James could easily be rested.

      Both good moves. Would prefer A tbh.

      1. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Yeah, that's fair. B is good for this week as a lot of my team have poor fixtures and I could bench one for Alonso, but probably a good idea to get Jota in sooner rather than later.

        Livra can play over King next week and then the fixtures are golden.

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Think I'd go with this mindsety too

  9. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Save a FT here? Was originally thinking of doing Toney to Wilson but Norwich don't seem as bad recently. Otherwise maybe Ronaldo to Kane?

      Sanchez

    3. Shark Team

      Sanchez for long long term
      Guaita for the next 7 gws

  11. Shark Team
    • 4 Years

    7 gws left to enjoy Chelsea's defs pts. Enjoy it while it lasts cause then 4 at the back won't be a trend

    1. Kryptonite666

      What’s in 7 GWs ? liverpool and city ?

  16. Well you know, Triffic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Hasn't Klopp benched Salah in mid-week prem December games in previous seasons. Also i vaguely recollect he benched for a Merseyside derby one year.

    1. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Can't recall a derby benching. Skonta (Neale) posted about this recently, let me find it.
      I'd think he starts vs Everton with Wolves rest a possibility.
      We'd all hope the front 3 are rested for CL given they're top of the group.

      1. FPL_Crisis

            Whilst you're here, do you have any stats on Gundo cameos, ie: if he doesn't start, is he likely to come on anyway or is he a starter or rest type player?

            Many thanks

            Looking at Foden to Jota like many others then Raph to one of Gund/Bilva next week ahead of Watford

  17. balint84

    Wilson, Jesus or Chris Wood?

      Wilson. Easily.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo

      Wilson, but even as an owner I'm not super confident. Owned for 2 weeks and not been impressed.

    Just got home and saw the rigged Ballon D'odour result. Salah TC is locked now.

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Feel for Lewa.

      1. Djokovic Airlines
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I think it should have been Salah. He plays in the strongest league in the world and breaks record after record. He has a better goal-scoring record than the others. Lewa plays in a Farmers league and is undeniably a great striker. Messi shouldn't even have been in the top 10.

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Commented on the last page, with the importance they put on international results, Salah will always be at a disadvantage.

    1. BrazilianGooner

      Livra for now

  20. The Count of Monte Cristo

    6 months, 27 days ago

    No easy way to get Jota - best to save FT? Or do Saka + Raphinha --> Jota + 5.5m (-4)?

    Sánchez
    TAA -- Cancelo -- James
    Salah -- Son -- Raphinha -- Gallagher
    Toney -- Antonio -- C.Wilson

    Foster* -- Saka* -- White -- Livramento [1FT + 0.3m ITB]

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Son to Jota is easy

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Given I've recently brought Son in and his decent fixtures I feel I should at least give him a chance.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          ah ok

          i think Jota will out score him though, for a lot less value

  21. Mooster©️
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    So Foden and Duffy to Maddison and Alonso for -0!?

  22. Better Call Raul
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Still a good idea to bring in Gallagher? Can't really afford anyone else if binning Mbeumo

    1. RAMZES666
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Long term yes. Or if you can wait, Bowen in few weeks is a good option. Mbeumo is just a bad asset now, can't even rely on him for returns from the bench.

        1. Adamdashi
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Don't expect Leeds will do much against an improved Palace. They look pretty toothless at the moment.

          I think the long term run for Jota is a lot better.

      Hasn't been called up in a year but there's a bit of a clamour for him to be included, so I read. Another one of their strikers - Victor Osimhen - has just been ruled out of AFCON.

    Thinking of moving out Antonio and getting back on WC - just have feeling may be rested for Chelsea game. Is Toney or Wilson best short term option ?

    A Wilson
    B Toney
    C Keep Antonio

    Doesn't look like Foden will drop tonight

    Anyone know how long KDB is out? Gund seems great value right now…
