Captain Sensible

Who are the best FPL captain options for Double Gameweek 37?

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers face another tough captaincy decision for Double Gameweek 37, with no real standout favourite for the armband.

In an attempt to find the best one for this latest round, first we will assess the fallout of the captain poll, before then analysing the best options, Rate My Team (RMT) and the Premier Fantasy Tools ratings ahead of Sunday’s 10:30 GMT deadline.

THE CAPTAIN POLL

Richarlison (£7.6m) is the man who tops the pile but not by much. 24.2% of voters handed their support to the Everton forward, who is in decent form, with three attacking returns in his last five starts.

Son Heung-min (£11.0m) is just behind in second place, backed by 22.39%.

Wilfried Zaha (£6.9m) occupies third place with 9.68%, followed by Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) and Ollie Watkins (£7.5m), on 7.98% and 6.99% respectively.

SON HEUNG-MIN/HARRY KANE

Gabriel injury latest as Son and Kane haul in north London derby

Son Heung-min’s midweek goal against Arsenal closed him to within one of Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot.

The South Korean also added an assist, which means he has now produced five double-figure hauls in his last eight matches and trails Salah by just 16 points at the top of the FPL standings.

As for Harry Kane (£12.4m), since Antonio Conte came to the helm, he is top among all players for non-penalty expected goal involvement (xGI), with his 23 attacking returns in 26 starts only bettered by Son.

Last six matches: ARS/liv/LEI/bre/BHA/avl


Tottenham Hotspur, meanwhile, have now won five of their last six home league games, scoring at least three goals in each of those victories.

And even with just one fixture in Double Gameweek 37, Son/Kane remain attractive propositions for the armband against a Burnley side potentially missing both of their first-choice centre-halves: James Tarkowski (£4.9m) exited last weekend’s game against Aston Villa in the early stages of the second half after feeling tightness in his hamstring, while Ben Mee (£4.6m) is struggling with a leg injury.

The Clarets’ goal attempts conceded heatmap from Gameweek 33 onwards – Mike Jackson’s first match in charge – offers further encouragement for Son backers, with plenty of shots allowed from the South Koreans ‘zone’:

    Would you consider this for a -8?

    Kulu and Pukki to Watkins (or richarlison) and Gordon

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Not for a -8. You're not really gonna want any of those players for gw38

      Just Pukey

    Thoughts on this FH team?

    Pickford
    Cash Digne Mings
    KDB, Mane, Son, Zaha, Gordon
    Kane, Richarlison (c)

    3.9, Andersen, Amartey, Gelhardt

    Alternatively I could replace Kane and Mane with Salah and Vardy

      Way too beautiful for House Frey. Sure that’s your team?

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Haha it's a draft. Thinking of taking a chance on trip Villa defence if Watkins doesn't play. Not big on Coutinho either.

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Don’t fiddle with it!

    2. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      No Salah could hurt

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Have the alternative to do Salah and Vardy instead of Mane and Kane.

        Salah and Kane would be ideal....maybe if I go Gallagher over Zaha and downgrade by subs to the lowest value players I could afford it

        1. Bavarian
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          See below my team with Salah

        104.0 with players left in. 103.5 with all players greyed out

  3. Bavarian

    Final FH version, thoughts please...

    Pickford
    Van Dijk-Cash-Digne (Clyne)
    Salah(C)-Son-Zaha-Maddison
    Kane-Ings-Richarlison

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 20 hours ago

      Copy the one above.

      1. Bavarian
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        No way going without Salah

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 20 hours ago

          Salah is passe

          1. Bavarian
            • 4 Years
            9 days, 19 hours ago

            Not ready to lose ground if he hauls again, his high ownership is scary...

            1. The Knights Template
              • 8 Years
              9 days, 19 hours ago

              Fair enough.

          2. NorCal Villan
              9 days, 18 hours ago

              Salah has a posse

      2. House Frey Wedding Planner

        9 days, 19 hours ago

        Think Richarlison would the better captain option.

        Kinda done with Leicester outfield players myself personally. They do rotate a lot and not convinced that's gonna change now they are out of Europe.

        Otherwise it's a good team and I like it. Think the Son/Kane double up will score big against Burnley

        1. Bavarian
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Cheers mate, good luck

        2. HurriKane
          • 9 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Why do you think Richarlison is better captiency option?

          He struggled to score against Watford B side. Plus Brentford and Palace are pretty solid at the back recently. Dont think his ceiling is that high despite the double

            Two relatively good home games with Everton still needing to win to be sure of PL safety gives Everton an edge this week.

            Rich is on penalties and their most likely goal threat based on this season. Everton's home form is significantly better than their away form and I think they'll get goals this week.

            If one does wish to go for a single gameweek captain then I actually think Son is the better option than Salah at the moment

            1. HurriKane
              • 9 Years
              9 days, 19 hours ago

              I see the logic. Only problem is the supporting cast of Everton. Gray and Gordon are not the best providers of goalscoring opportunities

              I could argue they sit back if they score first and grind out a result.

              1. HurriKane
                • 9 Years
                9 days, 19 hours ago

                Infact everton has failed to score more than 1 goal in 6 consecutive home games now

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 2 Years
                  9 days, 17 hours ago

                  Calvert Lewin might start up top in both games as well.

    2. kanuforpresident
        9 days, 19 hours ago

        FH team, chasing 25 pts behind, which of these starters are best

        A) Robbo, Sessegnon and Kane
        B) Myko, Zaha and Kane
        C) Robbo, Zaha and Vardy

        Rest of my team is pretty 'template' with the expected picks

        1. Tambling5
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          B has biggest upside I think, with Myko having two games.

        9 days, 19 hours ago

        Hi all,
        Can put out a reasonable team for 37, but have a free transfer and not sure what's best. Or indeed who to sub from my squad?
        Have a free hit left which can't be used this week and so will be using it in GW38.
        Martinez;
        James Alonso Cancelo Coady
        KDB, Son, Saka Havertz
        Kane Nketiah
        Subs Ramsey, Toney Amartey
        0.1itb
        Is Cancel and Toney to Cash and Rich for -4 (and benching Havertz) to get more doublers sensible?

        1. Cantonesque
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 16 hours ago

          No that looks like a bad move to me. But it depends what you're playing for now, who your ML rivals have and how big your gap is with them etc. Wait and see how the FA cup goes, it might give you an obvious decision about moving out a Chelsea player for a DGW player.

          Depending on how Spurs and Arsenal do, Chelsea might be home and dry before they play, which makes those assets a bit less attractive, especially if the've bagged a cup.

          Amartey seems too low on the bench - doesn't he seem good for 6-12 points this week? Rodgers would put Fofana in cotton wool now if he has any sense.

            Thanks for replying. Yep will re-read the runes in the morning! Must be a clear use of a free transfer somewhere!

      • bso

        Start DH or Mateta?
        Thanks guys!

        1. House Frey Wedding Planner
          • 3 Years

        Good to go??

        1. House Frey Wedding Planner
          • 3 Years

          Sterling & Trossard to Salah and Gordon?

          1. Slitherene
            • 4 Years
            9 days, 19 hours ago

            Could work out, could also go Diaz and Kane.

      • FPL Doctor
        • 7 Years
        9 days, 19 hours ago

        Watkins…

        Hold or transfer to Richarlison or Ings?

        1. Tambling5
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          If it's for free then I would.

      • De Gea is GOAT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 19 hours ago

        Current BB team and already used FT. Which option to go for?

        Schmeichel
        Robbo Rudi Cancelo
        Mount KDB Mane Coutinho
        Nketiah Richarlison

        Sa Mykilenko Schar Broja

        A) Broja to Mateta for -4
        B) Schar to Sessegnon -4
        C) KDB or Mane/Schar to Son/Sessegnon -8

        1. Tambling5
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Looks a great BB team. I'd stick. Not sure Mateta or Sessegnon worth a -4. If Mane plays 120 mins today and looks a bit knackered then a swap for Son looks a runner, as Son also more certain to play in 38.

          1. De Gea is GOAT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            9 days, 19 hours ago

            Thanks mate. Just want to get the best out of it and really unsure about Broja and Schar.

      • Mweene
        • 8 Years
        9 days, 19 hours ago

        Start Saka, Nketiah or Matip?

        Saka is looking tired at the moment.

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Matip if he doesnt play cup game

          Otherwise Saka (due to penalties)

      • Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 19 hours ago

        Is Douglas Luiz going to start 2 games we reckon? Is he a better starter over Andersen?

        May go for him (or Anderson) to start so that I can fit in the premiums that I want.
        Think it may be worth the risk. Fine with a 4/5 pointer with the potential for a 8/10 or whatever.

        1. HurriKane
          • 9 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Rather prefer KDH

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Everyone is fit in their central midfield now including Ramsey and Nakamba. I dont think he will start both.

          You can try Sessegnon or Holgate if not sure about Anderson

        3. JELLYFISH
          • 10 Years
          9 days, 17 hours ago

          I think he may well start on the left side like he did against Liverpool, with McGinn on the right. It’s his best position.
          Think Ramsey more likely to be benched.

      • bso

        Capt Son or Ings???

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Ings

          1. bso
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            9 days, 19 hours ago

            Thanks!. How many games do you think Mateta will start?

      • Neo-Viper
        • 7 Years

        How did I do on this FH?
        only worry is no Vardy.

        Pickford
        TAA Cash Digne
        Salah KDB Zaha Son Trossard
        Ings Richarlison

        Steele Kelly Tsimikas Richardson

      • Holmes
        • 8 Years
        9 days, 19 hours ago

        With RIcharlison getting so much love for captaincy, I'm tempted to switch to someone else.

        1. Neo-Viper
          • 7 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          Won't mind on Igns TBH

        2. bso
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Prefer Ings to him any day.

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            9 days, 19 hours ago

            dont have him 😀

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 days, 18 hours ago

            The problem of Ings is playing time and injury-prone.

        3. JELLYFISH
          • 10 Years
          9 days, 17 hours ago

          Son is the standout pick for me this week.

        4. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years
          9 days, 17 hours ago

          Going burn if Calvert Lewin starts up top.

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 19 hours ago

          maybe 1

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            9 days, 19 hours ago

            even if he does start both, I dont think he will get anything.

        B) kdb

        1. Holmes

        Thoughts on this FH team?

        Pickford
        Robbo Cash Mykolenko
        Salah Son Maddison Zaha
        Kane Richa Ings

        Any changes you’d make here?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 18 hours ago

          I would personally go for Jota/Diaz over Ings if possible. Other than that, looks good.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            9 days, 18 hours ago

            Both are out of my budget. Would have to make a downgrade elsewhere too.

        2. Salan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          9 days, 18 hours ago

          I prefer double def on Villa instead of Everton.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            9 days, 18 hours ago

            Everton def better at home and Mykolenko is more attacking. Digne could be benched for 1 game for Young and Mings doesn’t excite me.

            1. tokara
              • 7 Years
              9 days, 17 hours ago

              Mings is shitty, like a quick Maguire

      • Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        9 days, 18 hours ago

        Most of FH37 templates ignores Maddison/Vardy. I believe FH team should have at least one of them.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          9 days, 18 hours ago

          Thinking of getting them both 🙂

          1. Salan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 days, 17 hours ago

            One of my FH draft has them both, with Son, Kane and Salah, & other very templated choices.

            Seems good.

      • subhojit123

        As Sterling owner a bit fearful of his minutes now that he has started two in a row and played full 90. Should I -
