Welcome to our Fantasy Premier League captaincy analysis for the upcoming gameweek 15. Here we will showcase the FPL options and tips for the captains armband. Firstly though, it’s time to look back at last week’s picks:
1. Romelu Lukaku – 6 points
2. Mesut Ozil – 10 points
3. Sergio Aguero – 2 points
Differential – Roberto Firmino – 3 points
Gamble – Jamie Vardy – 9 points
Let’s get cracking on this week’s captaincy picks!
1. Romelu Lukaku (CRY)
You can’t look past Lukaku this week. He’s scored in four consecutive games in the league, and has the chance to equal Duncan Ferguson’s Everton record of scoring in five consecutive games, so he’ll be eager to do so this Monday. He and Deulofeu are clinical together, so surely he’ll bag one or two this week? They take on Crystal Palace, who are in fantastic form, however this fixture has produced plenty of goals in the last few years, so will that continue?
2. Mesut Ozil (SUN)
Again, it’s a player you simply can’t look past. He’s been involved in Arsenal’s last 8 goals, assisting 7 and scoring 1. He’s been fantastic all season, and has proven that he can perform against every team. They take on one of the worst defensive sides this year, Sunderland, so surely he can continue his fantastic form.
3. Jamie Vardy (SWA)
You didn’t think we wouldn’t include him did you? I really don’t think I can say anything that you don’t know about Jamie, so I’m gonna say the incredibly obvious. He smashed the record last week against the best defensive team this season, he doesn’t seem like he will stop, and they take on Swansea, who are in horrific form. He’s got to score!
Differential – Yannick Bolasie (EVE)
I never like going with a player who is playing my team, however I can’t lie, I’m nervous about him playing this Monday. He’s in brilliant form, and was the key reason why his side smashed Newcastle last week by 5 goals. Massive differential as his ownership is very low, so if he does do well, you’ll be laughing with how high you’re climbing in the rankings!
Gamble – Harry Kane (WBA)
Kane did blank last week against a poor Chelsea and despite his goal scoring record this year, he is a big gamble as West Brom are usually good defensively, however I can see Kane bagging one against the Baggies. I would personally go for the safer options over Kane but if your rank is low, I’d say go for the gamble!
Have a good week!
