The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 5: Tips, captains, team news and best players

What to do with the injured Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.2m) and the suspended Michail Antonio (£7.9m) has been a hot topic among Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers this week.

Calvert-Lewin could be missing until after the October international break, while Antonio will sit out Gameweek 5 after his dismissal last weekend.

Leeds United’s favourable fixture swing and the ongoing Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) v Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m) debate have also been on the FPL agenda in the run-up to Friday’s deadline.

You’ll find plenty of advice on these sources of discussion, along with the usual help with armband conundrums and transfer dilemmas, below.

There’ll also be team reveals, Members articles and videos in this comprehensive guide to the upcoming Gameweek.

This page will be regularly updated between now and the FPL deadline at 18:30 BST on Friday 17 September, so keep checking back for the latest content.
