FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE CAPTAIN CHOICE GW5


,

Here’s our fantasy premier league captain choice GW5 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. Short version this week though due to time.

FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE CAPTAIN CHOICE GW5

THE FIXTURES

fpl-gw5fixtures

The bookies rate Man City, Spurs, Leicester,  Man Utd and Arsenal as the most likely winners

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 Friday morning

£1.85 – Iheanacho, De Bruyne and Kane

£2.05 – Ibrahimovic, Vardy

£2.15 – Lukaku, Costa,

£2.20 Sterling

£2.30 – Alli, Mahrez

£2.50  – Benteke, Eriksen

£2.62 – Sturridge, Sanchez, Rooney

THE FPL ADVICE POLLS.

Firstly here’s the FFGeek poll:

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 si

A real choice between Ibrahimovic and Lukaku.

TOP 10 FPL MANAGERS

I only have access to 2 of the top 10 FPL managers I’m following. No help there as 1 has gone for Ibrahimovic and the other Lukaku.

I’ve also done a good round of the forums, sites and social media and that really hasn’t helped the situation either.

SUMMARY

Here’s a brief summary schedule:

So little help there

THE FFGEEK CHOICE

Well with no clear poll choice it’s another one of those 50/50 choices which can be rank crucial.

From my perspective Ibrahimovic has 63% ownership vs Lukaku’s 15%.  That means the risk is firmly with not captaining Ibrahimovic.   I haven’t had time to do the analysis but it’s safe to say that Ibrahimovic has been more consistent than Lukaku so far this season.  In addition Ibrahimovic has pens.  However, Lukaku does have the better underlying stats.  However, I would also say that the Middlesboro defence looks and the team acts more defensive than Watford so far this season. United after losing their last 2 fixtures should also be a wounded animal looking to strike back.

I’m therefore going for Ibrahimovic
