Fantasy Football Captain Picks

The Captain’s Picks article, which will be released every Wednesday, will endeavor to sort out one of the most challenging problems FPL managers face – namely pick the member of your side who will accrue the most points and earn huge double point tallies for your fantasy team. We will concentrate on the most obvious looking selections each particular game-week and have a look at some comparable stats to see who, on paper, the best options are.

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 29

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 29 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 29. This weekend sees one of the best days of the year, St. Patricks Day!! The one day of the year we all get to release our true alcoholic side with it being totally acceptable, and just in time too! Last weekend we saw only four matches and the likes of Can, Schneiderlin and Mawson hitting the back of the net with the bigger names not getting the points. Most teams only scraped together eight or nine players so it was to be expected that scores would be low and with an average of 15 points that clearly happened. We could all do with a massive performance from our captain but this is my first Captain Pick’s article so we’ll see how I do!! 5. Josh King and Gylfi Sigurdsson (Bournemouth...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 28

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 28 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 28. Combinations can sometimes conjure up the most unique and magical fusions, take Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole (treble winning strike partnership); Morecambe and Wise (timeless comedy duo); Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers (iconic dance partners) and an ice cream cone strategically placed on a donkey (unicorn). Alternatively, an unexpectedly gruesome hybrid can be produced from merging two otherwise great things together; like Star Wars and Samuel L. Jackson. This all brings me rather unsteadily to present you this haphazard homogenization of the Captain Picks and Tips articles, which I’m unofficially calling Cat Pain Tips*. But first let’s look at the 4 fixtures on offer: BO...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 27

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 27 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 27. Surely nobody will be captaining a player who doesn’t wear the light blue of Manchester City this week???! They have a double gameweek to look forward to and whilst it’s a slightly sudden and unexpected one it is surely a prime one with it being against Sunderland and Stoke. Indeed you could make a case for it being the best one this season looking at the potential ones ahead and we suspect there will be a good few Triple Captain armbands waved around this week as a result. The only, and main, problem with that is of course the risk of rotation. City have two league games in four days followed swiftly by an FA Cup game at the weekend and then a huge Champions League one...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 26. The FA Cup is usually just a rude interruption for FPL players, and this week has been no different, but for once it may have been of some relevance as we decided to look at it from the point of view of choosing a Captain from the fixtures, if you had to, and what the outcome would have been. It’s interesting simply because all of the Premier League teams were up against lesser ranked opposition and indeed some against non-league teams. No brainer then, yeah? Not necessarily. Aguero against Huddersfield… Aguero against Huddersfield when even they play a second stream team… Ah come on, we’d be transferring him in droves just to captain him. He’d have go...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 25

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 25 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 25. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Captain Picks for Game-week 25! Fantasy players’ success last GW was mostly determined by whether or not they had Lukaku as captain. If you did, congratulations on getting 42 points; if you didn’t, tough luck! Obviously, some managers had Lukaku but didn’t captain him (including me), meaning that last game-week could go either way depending on your other players. I got a red arrow myself, which I consider to be impressive given my bad rank and the fact that one of my players singlehandedly got 21 points. Anyways, your fortune most weeks will not be determined by the presence or performance of one player. Many of the typical captain choices have ...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 24

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 24 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 24. Oh dear. Midweek matches are supposed to be class! These ones, for most of us, were a non-event at best. How can I recommend the likes of Sanchez and Costa to you after their combined score of 4 points on Tuesday night? Well, in fairness, they do play each other in the lunchtime kick-off this weekend… which is far from ideal. So, here are 5 theoretically ‘better’ candidates for your team’s captaincy, each of whom fits into at least a couple of the following categories: tragically inconsistent, severely lacking in confidence, plays in an underperforming team, chews on marbles whilst being interviewed, completely illiterate. Harry Kane vs Middlesbrough (H) This man certainly isn’t in...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 23

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 23 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 23. And it’s another ‘face-off’ special. We were shocked to discover that the last one was way back in GW13, how time flies. If you are unfamiliar with the concept then we simply ask Init and Mito to take turns picking their Captains for the week and then to make a case for each. If it was a weekly feature we’d have a running league table and all sorts but in all honesty it’s just a bit of fun and basically a vehicle for presenting the usual picks for the week, but dressed up a bit differently. That said we do have the results from the last one, albeit 10 weeks later! It’s a bit like a Potty Christmas competition only more organised and timely. Last ...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 22

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 22 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 22. 2017 is already shaping up to be the year of the incredible sulk. While Diego Costa has one eye on a slow boat to China, Dmitri Payet would seem content just to leave E13. Or E20. Or wherever the heck it is that the Hammers call home now. Even Alexis Sanchez threw a strop when his manager had the audacity to relieve him of duty 4-0 up at the Welsh branch of Managers-R-Us. So which players should you trust with your captaincy, and which should you cast aside, risking mutiny? That’s clearly none of my business. But here are 5 players worth considering: 5. PHILIPPE COUTINHO (home vs Swansea) A swan’s grace as it glides along the water is said to belie the unseen frenzied a...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 21

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 21 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 21. Let me begin with wishing all our loyal and active site members and readers a Happy New Year. Hope you were all surrounded by your dear and near ones as we all ushered the beginning of 2017. But that shouldn’t deter us from what we have been religiously doing since the beginning of August, with half of the season behind US and the games coming thick and fast with a few international breaks here and there, it becomes of utmost importance how you and me target the second half of the season. For some it might be to top their own private leagues or for some it might be to do a personal best in overall rankings. With our 2nd wildcard now play now, it would be much more important t...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 19. Welcome to the Captain Picks article for Gameweek 19. Firstly, let me say Merry Christmas to all of you, and I hope you are busy stuffing your bellies full with Christmas food and beer, enjoying the holidays with your families. While food and family are the best things of Christmas time, we all know the second best thing: the busy Premier League schedule, giving us three rounds of festive football in one week. As we all know, a certain Argentinian is coming back from suspension this GW, so let me put one thing straight right away – I will not be tipping Aguero in this article. This is for a number of reasons: he has a tough matchup against Liverpool, City are struggling at the mome...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 18

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 18 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 18. Here we are then, on the run up to Christmas and, boy, has it come around quickly. Somehow, I’ve managed to find time to write this article as, in typical tradition, I still have way too many presents to get for so many relatives. All I can say is that a free trial on a certain rainforest-named website has been a lifesaver – if only this website could also write your cards, drive you up the M6 to visit family and answer for you every time you’re asked what your Christmas and New Year plans are. That would make it all a much more relaxing time of year. Like deciding what presents to get, this gameweek presents real dilemmas, albeit on who to give the captain’s armband to, as t...Read More

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 15

Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 15 Welcome to Fantasy Premier League Captain Picks Gameweek 15. You can’t always play it safe. Sometimes those things with really long odds actually happen. I was just standing there, on a hot and muggy summer’s night, minding my own business. Wet and naked. Just me and one other guy. I never did catch his name. Which seems strange to me now I think about it. Especially given that he was wet and naked too. Anyway, there we were, the sole occupants of a large outdoors communal shower block in a summer camp in Massachusetts. The young campers were tucked up in bed and another counselor and I were showering after using the gym. It was about 9pm at night and it was raining like I had never seen before. Think UK storms, multiplied by 100. Crazy rain...Read More
