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

    cheeky repost (:

    From the two combo who score more points next week:

    A - Alonso Wat(A) ; Jimenez Bur(H)
    B - Jota Eve(A) ; Livramento Lei(H)

    Cheers!

      That'a a toughie, probably have to say A there

    2. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      B you mean Jota + Livramento + extra cash? Obviously B

      1. fn.jota
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 18 days ago

        its not transfers or cash concerned.. its just who makes more points this GW, because if im bringing alonso this GW, i will bring jota for saturday anyway.

        if i bring alonso i have A option if i bring jota i have B option. so jota next week makes more sense in my mind but idk jota could haul against everton

        1. dabber7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 18 days ago

          A

  2. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Best option here?
    a) Get Jota in for Son
    b) For -4, get Jota in and a striker for Raphinha/Jimenez
    c) Save FT. Sell Sa, Jimenez and Jota for -4 next GW.

    1. fn.jota
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 18 days ago

      im doing something similar to C i think

  3. HMC

    Antonio dropping again. Who are sellers going for instead?
    Sorry can't logon to fplstats to see the Trends

      Is this link being kindly thrown about not working for you?

        5 months, 18 days ago

        Cheers didn’t see this earlier.
        Lots going to Vardy it seems (ahead of his rest!)

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 18 days ago

          No probs bud, just passing it on from the gents before 🙂
          Indeed, Vardy and those fixtures to come look good, and by Rodgers's comments, it's all 'up to him' if he feels like he can give his all each game. Inevitably he'll sit out one perhaps but I reckon he starts Wednesday.

      2. Dr Mantis Toboggan

        I was wondering what this link was. Thanks SS

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years

          Welcome buddy

    2. FantasyClub
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Probably King

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Dennis, Pukki, Benteke, Locadia, Wilson, Lukaku & Toney all have triple up arrows.
      ASM, King, Vardy & Davis all close/look like rising.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Cheers. I have Kane and Dennis, might just hold again as unsure who I’d want. Moving Foden to Jota instead

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Wilson or Toney if had free transfer- but I don’t (.1 short of Jesus or might have been tempted)

      I seem able to access fpl stats- ASM and/or King likely risers

  4. Salah’s Sonnet
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Hi guys, just wanted to ask for more opinions on the below

    Sanchez
    James - TAA - Cancelo - Alonso
    Gallagher - Salah - Jota - Son
    Vardy - Toney
    ____________________________
    Foster: ESR: Livramento: Scarlett

    1FT, 0.1 ITB

    A) Roll the FT? Nothing worth a hit?
    Would like a City mid but hard to acquire without a hit

    B) Bench look right? Or play ESR over Toney/Gallagher?

    Cheers gents 🙂

    1. fn.jota
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 18 days ago

      A = g2g

    2. MikeS
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      A

    3. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Cheers guys, A it is, be good to roll a FT for once 🙂

    4. Dr Mantis Toboggan
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      I would roll the FT. Hard to pick a City mid in a GW with lots of rotation expected, and Foden and Grealish not far off rejoining the squad.

      Bench looks good 🙂 Theres every chance ESR ends up in your XI this week anyway

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Thanks pal! Very much agreed, so hard to predict and would take a hit also as I don't quite wanna move Son on just yet.
        I thought that about ESR as well haha, will probably come in for someone benched.

  5. FantasyClub
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Is it worth playing with Pep and try to guess which midfielder he’s going to play or just avoid the heartache ?

    1. MikeS
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Have a good bench if taking a city mid

    2. Samwise the Brave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      I avoid, can't handle the pain

  6. MikeS
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Start hwang or dier?

  7. davies
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Alonso due to rise tonight or no?

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      84.9, unlikely, but weird things have happened in the past.

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      85.7

      1. fn.jota
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 18 days ago

        any info on jota in this concern?

        1. Dr Mantis Toboggan
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 18 days ago

          100+ %
          Likely to rise

        2. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 18 days ago

          Yeah Jota likely to rise tonight

      2. fn.jota
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 18 days ago

        yeah ive found this now! http://217.194.223.2/Home/IndexAndroid thanks to @salah's sonnet

    3. davies
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      0.0 ITB… worth risking it?

  8. MShalkz
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Current team:

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    Trent, Cancelo, Emerson Royal, Christensen (Livra)
    ESR, Salah, Raphinha (Douglas Luiz, Mbuemo)
    Vardy Kane Toney (0.1m ITB)

    Currently so tempted to take a -8 and get Christensen, Mbuemo and Vardy out for R James, Jota and Benteke/King

    Is this extremely dumb considering Vardy has Southampton up next and finally seems to be hitting a bit of form, however it seems the only reasonable method of generating funds atm and he could potentially be rested a lot over this christmas period

    Also been deliberating a -4 and getting Lamptey and Cornet in for Christensen and Mbuemo, or do I just roll the FT and hope for the best

  9. Samwise the Brave
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Considering a -4
    Livermento --> Alonso
    Normann --> Jota
    Vardy --> ASM

    Exact money

    Advice?

  10. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Best option out of these?

    A. Chilwell > Alonso
    B. Chilwell raph > liv jota
    C. Antonio esr > Jota king

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

      1. Disturbed

        Thanks

  11. Wılly
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Would you do this move?

    Son & Duffy to Gundogan & James

    Own Kane but no Chelsea defenders

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Looks good although I would rather use Kane than Son as the makeweight.

    2. Samwise the Brave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      No, I feel Son is nailed in the midweek. Gundo and James may not play

  14. tc93

    What’s everyone doing with foden? (For people that already own Jota)

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      holding … nicely tested

    2. Dr Mantis Toboggan
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Holding. I think he plays, sounded like he was close last game so should be fresh for this game (I hope)

    3. dabber7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 18 days ago

      I own them both and I'm seriously considering switching to Gundo as Dennis is the first on my bench and he might be out. Gundo's underlying stats are currently better than Foden's too.

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Gundog looked like he really needed a break at the end of the last match. Same with BSilva. Holding Fodan.

    4. GuenDoozy
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Wouldn't take a hit to sell, but if no other issues then i would switch to Jota/Gundo. I used my FT for Chilwell > Alonso so keeping for now.

  15. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Ashley Young, who seems very OOP under Gerrard, could be a steal come GW 17.

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      I'd rather a pigeon poop in my mouth than own him

  16. Dr Mantis Toboggan

    The past 9 Everton v Liverpool PL fixtures at Goodison Park has resulted in 8 draws and 1 Liverpool win.

    Interesting stat

      If the next one is a draw, I’ll eat everybody’s hats!

  17. ZTF

    Start one:

    A) Livramento LEI H)
    B) Coady (BUR H)

    Bench one:

    A) ASM (NOR H)
    B) Maddison (SOU A)

    Hi guys, just checking :

    1) Any news on Saka ?
    2) Any risk of another games getting cancelled due to weather conditions ?
    3) Any news on a possible date for Burnley v Spurs ?
    4) If Saka out, which is the best replacement ? A) Gallagher, B) Cornet or C) Jota (-4) ?

    Cheers !

    So Messi wins Ballon D’Or - Salah comes in 7th… but is there chance he may be rests Everton and anyone considering Jota as captain?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Very unlikely. Derby, Liverpool chasing, form of his life.

  20. akhilrajau
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Sanchez, Foster
    James, TAA, Cancelo, Marcal, Johnson
    Salah, Son, Raphina, Saka, Brownhill,
    Toney, Vardy, Hwag.
    FT: 1, Bank : 0.5 m

    Please suggest the priority
    A. Marcal -> Tavers/Arons
    B. Saka -> Maddison/Gallagher/lokonga
    C. Saka, Marcal -> Gundogan, 3.9 def (-4)
    D. Save FT
    E. any other

    1. Original Sin
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Can't you afford Saka-> Jota?

      1. akhilrajau
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        No that isnthe problem.

      2. akhilrajau
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Only option i can see is saka, raphina -> jota, lokonga / 5.6 mid (-4)

  21. Miami Monkey

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA James Cancelo Walker Livra
    Salah Foden Jota Raphina Brownhill
    Vardy Antonio Hwang

    2 FT, 0.0 itb.

    Would like to not waste a transfer and do something but... What? Hwang to King is a straight swap in price and King will rise tonight which will price me out, but King has the hardest two fixtures next.

    A) Hwang --> King
    B) Raphina --> Bowen/Gallagher/Saka/ESR. Who?
    C) Something else?

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Id be tempted to do Walker to Alonzo

      1. Miami Monkey
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Can't afford

        1. Freshy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 18 days ago

          Walker is good value
          I did not know that.

  22. davies

    White > Alonso (0 ITB)

    Worth doing now or risk price changes for tomorrows pressers?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Wait

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

      Alonso not going to rise
      White not going to fall
      Wait 🙂

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Should be, -89%

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            5 months, 18 days ago

            Gonna hold then thanks. Exact money on Livra to Alonso. But I'd like to know more in the pressers as I'd consider Duffy to Regulion if there is a good hint of rest

  23. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 18 days ago

    Considering a ridiculous -8 to fix up a few things!

    Thoughts on Raya, Duffy & Raphinha to DDG, Alonso & Gilmour for -8?

    Gives me the following team. Gives me an extra player on the bench for the busy schedule. Really keen on getting DDG & Alonso for the upcoming gameweeks! Also, will surely be selling Raphinha after the next 2 games, then why not now?

    DDG
    TAA Cancelo James Alonso
    Salah Son Jota Gilmour
    Vardy Toney

    Foster Mbeumo Livramento Davis

    1. Yank Revolution

  24. MountainBeach

    Lads, what's the move?

    Sanchez
    TAA, Cancelo, Coady

    Foster, White, Williams, Allan

  25. Bleh
    • 5 Years

    Worth doing Duffy > White before today’s price changes and I’m priced out? I know White has United this week but not sure how nailed Duffy is going forward.

    Sanchez
    James, TAA, Cancelo
    Salah, Son, Gallagher, Jota
    Vardy, Antonio, Dennis
