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.

    Harry Kane is nothing but rich man's Toney.

        Yeah, what I meant is that us normal folk have Toney and only the filthy rich are paying twice the price for same-ish product.

      He’s been absolutely CRAP

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Nobody has been more crap than Auba though. Even the pitch invader had more impact than him at OT.

          Agree he's been woeful. His finishes are usually weak and straight at the 'keeper.

      last chance saloon this week. Mind you none of the premium forwards have performed. Even Ronaldo is bettered by Dennis.

    And yet again we have a member's only article to state the obvious!

      Not renewing next season, this year taking lighter approach and only really listen to one or two pods in the week plus selected YouTube clips, don't dig deep into number on here - result ?
      Keeping it simple and it works.

      1. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        One of the major reasons I did not renew this year was the quality of content..Twitter/YouTube offer better and actionable insights for free

      it's not their fault that Salah is running away with it atm

      1. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        You don't say..but the content for premium users needs to be managed right? If Salah is running away with captaincy why not remove it for the time being and offer another insightful article that can help form a perspective? Remember, in the age of the internet people are paying for this content...has to mean a lot

          You're not paying for anything lol. I am. i'm happy with plenty of members only articles as well as the members section and Marks video each week

    Would you do Gallagher >> ESR here?
    2FTs and 0.3itb. Can’t see any other moves. Or burn the transfer?

    Gallagher’s stats have really dropped off and he’s looked poor too. ESR doesn’t look that great stats wise either.

    Sanchez
    TAA. Cancelo. Alonso
    Salah(C). Jota. Raph. Gallagher
    Kane. Antonio. Toney
    (Foster. Livra. Gilmour. White)

    1. Mozumbus

        Yes

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

          Yes. But unsure on him

          1. TheBiffas
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 21 days ago

            fair

      • Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Gallagher and ESR stats will never be great but they will keep scoring points to annoy. A bit like Toure, Ramsey or even Lingard last season.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          Which one this busy period?

      • DycheDycheBaby
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Stats mean nothing. FPL points do. And ESR keeps getting them.

    2. Sterling Malory
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 21 days ago

      And there goes my plan. Had exact money for Raph > Son, now 0.1m short.

      Back to the drawing board. Nothing else worth a hit here right?

      Ramsdale
      TAA James Cancelo Reguilon
      Raph Salah Jota ESR
      Vardy Dennis
      Foster Toney Livra Brownhill

      1. JariL
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Definitely no need for a hit. Good team. Next week sell Raph as their fixtures turn horrible.

        1. JariL
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 21 days ago

          I would probably play Toney (lee) ahead of Dennis (MCI) this week though.

    3. Mintu
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 21 days ago

      This become a routine weekly captaincy article with salah leads the line and we are looking who become second to think differentiate option.

    4. Nightf0x

      WC team

      Ddg foster
      Rudi laporte taa white lamptey
      Esr son salah jota bernardo
      Asm/wilson/toney/wood benteke denis
      -Gw16 son asm/wils... -4 to ronaldo bowen

      -0.3 how to fix it ? (Might be -0.2 if cancelo price rises today), possible ways to fix it:

      Ddg to rams, white to tavares, lamptey to dufy, rudi to alonso, foster to 3.9 gk

    5. CERVELO
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 21 days ago

      2FT

      Looking at;

      Rapha > BSilva
      Jimmy > Dennis

      Have 0.3 ITB

      Sanchez / Guaita
      James / White / Cancelo / TAA / Liv
      Salah / Jota / ESR / Rapha / McArthur
      Kane / Toney / Jimmy

      Feel like there’s plenty of options this week but unsure. Possibly just do Jimmy > Dennis and roll for 2 FT next week?

      Thoughts

      1. TheBiffas
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 21 days ago

        I'd just do jimi > dennis

        I did these exact moves last night. Wanted to hang on to Raph for next week, but would've been priced out.

        If you can wait then I'd do so.

              5 months, 21 days ago

              Wanted both, but don't have enough funds. So have to choose between one of them.

            GTG? 0.4itb 0ft

            Ramsdale

            James - TAA - Cancelo - Lamptey

            Salah (c) - Son - Cornet - Jota

            Vardy - Jesus

            Is it too late to hop on the ESR train?

            Next 6 fixtures look decent - eve, SOU, WHU, lee, nor, WOL

            Cant afford Bowen as it will cost a hit next week and will have to bench a player with a good fixture also. Already have Antonio also so not sure about the double up.

            1. CRO KLOPP
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              Great value,why not

              I feel every ESR return has been incredibly lucky

                • 5 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                This is true. I think he has scored more points than he would have deserved in FPL, happy as an owner though.

              2. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                Thats a bit harsh. Cant keep getting lucky for 10 weeks. He does seem to get in good goal scoring positions. I know he was lucky to score yesterday but he's always ready to take a shot after the ball deflects from a corner.

              3. DycheDycheBaby
                • 7 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                He gets in good positions and has a good shot on him. No luck in that

            WC-ing. Had to ditch CR7 in the process 🙁

            It's all down to:
            1) DDG, Robbo/Cancelo
            2) 4.6GK, TAA

            1. Mozumbus

              Looking at cheap defenders, is Goode nailed for the foreseeable future?
              Has been solid in his last two games, that's my perspective and Brentford fans (the small amount I've read) + 4 good fixtures in his next 5.

              Johnson looking at various information could soon be replaced by Coufal. So just scouring the other options, which yes is scarce.

              1. lugs
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                no idea, i didn't even consider him so thanks for the heads up, i'll monitor him this weekend along with Johnson & Williams as i'm looking for a route to do White or Livermento --> cheapie, then Broja --> Dennis

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 4 Years
                  5 months, 21 days ago

                  yeh.
                  I read some stuff re. Coufal is the better option than Johnson at RB, especially with his superior attacking output for their favourable fixtures.
                  Williams also has competition and don't fancy many cs/attacking returns.

            4. Pikill
              • 5 Years

              Livramento or Duffy? Have Trossard so don't like the idea of them up against each other, but it's one or the other!

              1. TheBiffas

                5 months, 21 days ago

                Livra still has most attacking potential

              • 5 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              Which option will score more points until new year:

              A) Fernandes + Antonio
              B) Bernardo Silva + Ronaldo
              C) Son + Gabriel Jesus

                Why are you picking De Gea?

                  • 6 Years
                  5 months, 21 days ago

                  Good run of fixtures

                  1. GreennRed
                    • 10 Years
                    5 months, 21 days ago

                    2 cleansheets in 14 games. Only one regular keeper worse for cleansheets. Good keeper let down by a poor defence.

            7. Champ
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              Antonio - I know I’m not the only one still with him on board. Not at the races at all unfortunately and the stats back it up.

              With the fixtures turning what would you do? Hold and hope for a return to early season form or just move on and maybe get Bowen in etc

                He had 3 good game weeks and scored 2 goals since then.

                I think I'm moving him on, held too long already.
                If he starts banging them in again, then may get him back in

                I will hold for the fixtures but can see why people are losing him if they find a better option

                Hold. His form is bound to turnaround when everyone sells him for the good fixture run.

                If i still had it i'd do it now, obviously depends on the state of your team though

              Semedo -> Reguilon for free the right move?
              Davis -> Dennis/King next week
              Schmeichel -> another keeper after.

              2.0 ITB 1 FT

              Schmeichel
              TAA - Cancelo - James* - Rüdiger - Semedo
              Salah - Jota - Zaha
              Ronaldo - Toney

              (Ward, Gilmour, Sissoko, Davis)

                Looks good

            10. Jonny HOW SON?
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 21 days ago

              Which looks better guys?

              A) Gallagher & Jimenez ---> Son & Dennis/King
              B) Antonio & Jimenez ---> Ronaldo & Dennis/King

              Basically it's Son vs Ronaldo, also do you prefer King or Dennis?

              1. chelseabrad
                • 7 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                B

              Maddison an option for the next 4 GWs? Decent ish fixtures, scored well the last 2 weeks or is it just point chasing?

                • 4 Years
                5 months, 21 days ago

                might as well get him while he's in form, just be prepared to jump of him quickly when he starts to troll

              Ramsdale
              TAA Alonso Cancelo
              Salah Raph Saka Mbuemo
              Kane Antonio King

              (Foster Livra Duffy Brownhill)

              Already done Jimi>King and have 1 more FT and 2.3 ITB. Anything worth doing this week? Could do either Saka or Raph to Jota but dont particularly want to sell either.

                  If you've got the free, I'd offload Mbuembo

                5 months, 21 days ago

                Welp, did White, Mbuemo, Antonio to Reg, Bilva, Dennis for -4 to get this:

                Sanchez
                Reguilon, James, Cancelo, TAA,
                Salah, Raphina, Bilva, Jota,
                Ronaldo, Dennis

                (Foster, Livra, Douglas, Hwang)

                  Other than the Dennis fixture looks good, I'd play 5-4-1

                    Thanks a mil. Could plug in Livra or other instead. Injuries or rotation may make some decisions for me.

                Tempted by Vardy & Sissoko > Watkins & Jota (-4). Would mean benching Gallagher, though a strong bench is good in December. Any thoughts?

                      I have to play one forward this GW which is a shame because my other 10 outfield players have better fixtures.

                      Sanchez (Steele)
                      TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger, Reguilón, Liva
                      Salah, Son, Raph, Jota (Mbeumo)

                      and start ?

                      A) Jimenez (LIV)
                      B) Antonio (CHE)
                      C) Dennis (MCI)
