FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE CAPTAIN CHOICE GW18


,

Here’s our fantasy premier league captain choice GW18 article where we look at various ways of assessing the best captain pick for the gameweek. As usual we look at the fixtures, the bookies odds, the FPL advice site polls, any of the top 10 FPL managers we can find and the FFGeek choice. 

FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE CAPTAIN CHOICE GW18

THE FIXTURES

Here’s the fixtures for GW18

The bookies see 4 teams as strong favourites with the following win odds for £1 invested. It’s likely the captain choice will come from one of those teams.  Here’s the teams with suggestions:

Man Utd (Sunderland h)  at £1.22 – Ibrahimovic

Liverpool (Stoke h) at £1.30 – Firmino or Mane

Arsenal (WBA h) at £1.33 – Sanchez

Man City (Hull a) at £1.33 – De Bruyne

Chelsea (Bournemouth h) at £1.40 – Hazard




THE BOOKIES ODDS

Here we look at one of the bookies anytime goal scoring odds. I’ve tried to only put players in who have some gametime security. It’s the return for £1 invested. Odds are as of Boxing Day morning and remember they assume the player starts and don’t count assist potential.

£1.50 – Ibrahimovic

£1.83 – Sanchez

£1.91 – Origi

£1.95 – Rooney

£2.00 – Hazard and Batshuayi

£2.05 – Firmino

£2.15  – Walcott

£2.20 – Mane and De Bruyne

£2.45 – Lukaku and Pogba

£2.50 – Llorente, Sigurdsson, Lallana and Kane

You don’t see that many odds as strong as £1.50.  I’ve left off all the Man City players apart from De Bruyne as who knows what team Pep will put out

THE FPL ADVICE POLLS.

Firstly here’s the FFGeek poll:

So Ibrahimovic by some margin

Here’s the summary of the other main advice polls:

It’s worth noting that site 1 is the site with the most traffic and probably replicates the top 10k FPL managers more than any other site

Ibrahimovic the clear winner

TOP 10 FPL MANAGERS

No one showing their captain.   Having a look around the good social media sites it’s a little very clear that most people will be going for Ibrahimovic

USING VARIOUS MEASURES

Unfortunately with no “ones to watch” articles this week I am unable to do this

THE FFGEEK CHOICE

I normally go with the polls. So Ibrahimovic it is.  He’s also in good form and has great bookies odds.
