Fantasy Football Captain

Salah, Kane, Aubameyang and Zaha in Captain Picks for game week 38

Our captaincy article helps you choose the right captain for the upcoming game week. This year I am again using my experience and data from the RMT Adviser’s algorithm to make my recommendations.

Mo Salah

Are we really going to have this conversation again? If Salah hasn’t done enough to show you why you should captain him then there is no hope for you all.

Salah will be the most popular captain this week and is definitely the man to choose if you are looking to hold a lead in your mini leagues but if you are chasing then perhaps you will want to take a risk and choose someone else, if that is the case then here are a few others who may help you pip a rival to your league title.

Harry Kane

I’m drawn to Kane like a Moth to a bright light; I know it probably ends up getting me nowhere but I do it regardless.

Kane has been the source of so much frustration and anger for me personally this season and he has trolled me without mercy (I sold Aubameyang just before the latest dgw because Kane can do so much damage etc etc).

Still Kane is probably a good pick this week and like the Moth I am drawn to the bright lights of the Kane mega haul as he tries in vain to win the Golden Boot.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Aubameyang has been terrific for Arsenal since he signed registering 9 goals and 4 assists. Aubameyang is another one of those players who you could consider captaining if you are trying to chase down a mini league rival?

Arsenal have yet to pick up an away point this calendar year and while that might be a reason to stay away from Arsenal players I still think they will finish Arsene Wengers reign with a win and Aubameyang will get on the score sheet.

Wilfried Zaha

My final tip this week is a potential game changer for the final week of the season;

Two 14 point hauls in his last two home fixtures and a home game this week and listed as a Midfielder but playing as a Striker- what is not to like about the Crystal Palace player this week?

Crystal Palace host a potentially deflated West Brom to finish off their season and you would like to think there could be a few goals in this one.

Zaha would be my tip for captain if you are really taking a punt to catch mini league rivals.

  1. @Fergies Henchman,

    Thanks for all your helpful articles this season :thumbup:

    I am very tempted to Captain Zaha over Kane and Jesus

  2. Sold Jesus already do folks should captain him really as he will no doubt punish me big time! :lol:

    On a more serious note, I will cap a Pool player, either Firmino or Salah! Went all out on Liverpool last night with a -8 :D
