Get the most important fantasy premier league decision of any gameweek right with captain foresight, captain tips, advice and picks for FPL gameweek 6.
Last gameweek everything appeared aligned for Harry Kane to cement himself as the go to man for the armband but alas if only it was that easy. A 2 point return while others exploded was damaging for those who backed Kane but we must dust ourselves off and step back into the action as Gameweek 6 offers a chance to get back on track.
The players to consider
Time to consult the community and discuss the top three players* occupying the latest gameweek captain poll.
It wasn’t that long ago that fantasy managers thought the days of Aguerooooo were over. Rested against Bournemouth, the price to stump up combined with a lack of assurance in starts made the once default captain selection a risk. Fast forward two gameweeks and everything has changed. 4 goals and 2 assists in 180 minutes of football has resulted in 29 points and over half a million managers buying Kun’s services once more.
Home to Crystal Palace, everything appears straight forward for another demolition job if Manchester City does continue to build upon their recent surge in form. 11 goals, 20 shots on target while creating 8 big chances in their last two games is scary stuff and with their visitors arriving without a goal or clean sheet to their name, statistically this should be a walk over. Just saying but so should’ve Spurs’ game against Swansea last week.
Captain Foresight Score: 89.55
Harry Kane is averaging 7 points per away game as opposed to Sergio Aguero’s 5.5 per home game. Think about that for a second. Yep, the world ended for some as Swansea repelled Spurs in the late kick off with Kane subdued performance raising alarm bells after Aguero’s monster haul and then Romelu Lukaku’s continued plundering of points the day after. It was tough to take bit we mustn’t forget that we are still talking about a man who has had as many goal attempts in the last four gameweeks as the two Manchester City men in this article combined and until that goal threat subsides, Kane will always be in the reckoning.
Captain Foresight Score: 92.33
Have a guess whose minutes per goal attempt ratio better? Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus?
The difference though is Aguero is seemingly on the field for the duration of matches while Jesus is yet to finish a game and when talking about the armband, you want your player on the pitch for the full 90 minutes. Yep, a great transfer option with the Brazilian scoring in each of his last three outings but not so much a captaincy option until Pep lets Jesus hear the final whistle.
Captain Foresight Score: 79.03
Risk V Reward
When over a third of your goal attempts in the last four gameweeks have been classed as a clear cut chance (7), it’s no wonder that Romelu Lukaku continues to go from strength to strength in a Manchester United shirt. Away to Southampton, United will look to keep their record of at least two goals in every game and if achieved, fantasy managers can expected Lukaku to be in the points once more. The risk though is real going against a rampant Manchester City team hosting bottom of the table Crystal Palace but as the Captain Foresight Score suggests the reward of consistency is alluring.
Captain Foresight Score: 97.32
