With the new Premier League season just around the corner, Fantasy Premier League managers will now be thinking of building their initial Fantasy Squad. The roster of players to choose from is huge, but with the 100 million budget, you will need to make your choices carefully. On top of that, you are given the captain’s choice, which may be one of the most important decisions to make in the Fantasy Premier League. The captained player earns double points which can end up saving your week. This is a list of those players that have proved their capabilities in recent weeks and have relatively easy fixtures coming up. These players are seen as potential candidates for the armband as your FPL Gameweek 11 Captain.
Welcome to the Gameweek 11 Captaincy Picks as we look ahead as to what is now a Saturday deadline following the postponement of Aston Villa vs Newcastle United. Here are the top three options for your team’s Potential Captain over the weekend.
Bruno Fernandes (Midfielder) 10.9 million
Manchester United‘s most in-form player this season so far is Portuguese playmaker, Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese star has recorded double figures in every match so far this season, providing 5 goals and 4 assists to average 12.5 points per game. No FPL Midfielder has landed more shots on target on the road while only Heung-Min Son has more big chances than his 5. He also ranks top amongst players in his position for big chances created with 4. But he is up against a West Ham side that has kept two clean sheets in each of their last four matches shipping just three goals with only Tottenham and Chelsea conceding fewer. However, the Hammers have conceded nine big chances in that time ranking only 13th best in the league. They have conceded eight goals across their previous four meetings with big six sides this season an average of two per game.
Jamie Vardy (Forward) 10.3 million
With 2 goals and 3 assists in the last four game weeks, the Leicester talisman has averaged 6.3 points per game. He has landed 8 shots on target over that period which is a league-leading figure, while only Bamford has had more big chances than his 5. 7 of his 8 goals this season have come away from home with only Heung-Min Son earning more than his 53 points on the road. That is an average of 10.6 per game. Across their respective last four, away matches only Manchester United have scored more than Leicester’s 10, and the Foxes rank joint top with a tally of 14 big chances. Their game week 11 opponent Sheffield United is yet to keep a clean sheet this season and they have shipped 7 goals in the last four game weeks with only Aston Villa, Burnley Leeds, and Everton faring worse.
Kevin De Bruyne (Midfielder) – 11.7 million
No player has supplied as many as his 4 assists in the last four game weeks where he has picked an average of 5.3 points per game. Amassing 11 attempted assists over that period, the Belgian ranks joint top with Matheus Pereira, Hakim Ziyech, and Jack Grealish. Manchester City ended their goal drought with a familiar 5-0 win over Burnley at Etihad but they are still not creating as many high-quality chances as you might expect. They have fashioned an average of 2.3 chances per game over the last four game weeks compared to 3.7 throughout the last season. Their game week 11 opponents Fulham have played Leicester at their own game to win 2-1 last Monday and have now shipped 5 goals in the last our game weeks. They rank sixth-best in the league with 5 big chances conceded in that time.
