Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 15?

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) is once again the standout captaincy candidate in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), as Liverpool visit Wolverhampton Wanderers in Gameweek 15.

However, given that only Manchester City and Chelsea have conceded fewer goals than Bruno Lage’s side this season, plus the fact they have the second-worst attack, is there a case to be made for team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.0m)?

There are other viable alternatives, too, including Tottenham Hotspur duo Son Heung-min (£10.4m) and Harry Kane (£12.3m), plus penalty-taking Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.3m), fresh from Thursday’s second-half brace.

First, we will assess the fallout of the Gameweek 15 captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

Mohamed Salah is the clear leader of the captain poll for the eighth Gameweek in a row, with just over 58% of total votes from our users at the time of writing.

No other player has garnered more than 15% of votes at this stage, with Harry Kane in second backed by 12.63%.

Spurs team-mate Son Heung-min occupies third-place with 7.38%, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo and Reece James (£6.3m), with 5.38% and 3% respectively.

    Semedo to Reguilon worth a -4?

    1. TopBinFc
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Nope, can you bench semedo?

        1. hogree

          Would play Jimenez instead

          1. TopBinFc
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Yeah I'd start Jimi

        Getting Watkins this week for Antonio makes sense? Think it's time to finally ship him out...or are there better forward options? 0 ITB

          The forward options aren't really pushing any buttons. Good to get on anyone who looks like scoring early.

          Yep good move. I even fancy him to get a return at Anfield

              Very optimistic!

          Start one & bench order for the rest?

          Raphina owners what are you doing next week when the fixtures turn bad?

            I got money enough to get all the way up to Rashford…so maybe him.

        5. The Mighty Whites
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Start 1…

          Antonio
          White
          Livramento

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            I'm starting Antonio

          Would you do this with 2FT?

          Antonio and Jesus --> Ronaldo and Dennis

          I own Foden, but not Bowen.
          I have to do it today because of the price rise/fall

          Hey Guys,

          Would you play this team or drop one of the defenders to the bench and play Dennis instead?

          Sanchez
          TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger, Livramento, White
          Salah, Raphina, Gallagher
          Kane, Ronaldo

          Bench : Dennis, Douglas Luiz, Gilmour

          Thanks

          For this week only (I'm WC in GW16), would you rather have?:

          A) Raphinia and Wood
          B) Bernardo Silva and Pukki

          Thanks for the input!

          For this weekend would you bench either Cornet or Gundogan?

          I've opted to play Antonio.

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Jeez. Can’t imagine benching either - their fixtures are ridiculously good.
            Would 100% bench Antonio first.

            But if you had to choose then bench Cornet i suppose.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Would you also start Livramento if it meant benching Rudiger?

          With James also playing for Chelsea.

          Cheers guys.

            I think not doing the Che double up seems smart. Liv is easily playable.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Rank these for this week?

          currently with a & b and can upgrade one of those for free - would have to be Raph > Sancho…Gallagher to any of the rest works though.

          a/ Raphinha (BRE)
          b/ Gallagher (mun)
          c/ Sancho/Rashford (CRY)
          d/ Gundo/Foden/Silva (wat)

          Anyone reckon Salah gets rested against Wolves? I’m thinking Kane captain

          What to do with Adam Armstrong? Always seem to have other priorities than selling him
