Is Tottenham’s Harry Kane your go-to captaincy pick for Gameweek 24?
Good day to all Fantasy Premier League managers and welcome to our Gameweek 24 Captains Poll, where we give you an opportunity to post your captaincy pick and see how your fellow peers have voted.
Gameweek 23 threw up a 58-point overall average, whilst the top 1000 FPL managers collectively amassed a 73-point average – the standard continues to grow this season, with captaincy picks becoming make-or-break each week for some of us with such fine margins.
Those who captained Harry Kane against Everton last weekend were left with yet another monster return, as the Spurs front-man scored his 8th double-digit haul of the season – bagging 2 goals, 3 bonus points and a total of 26 points as captain.
Elsewhere, West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic topped the FPL Dream Team of the week with a score of 16 points, as the Austrian netted once, provided 2 assists and picked up all 3 bonus points in their 1-4 win away at Huddersfield.
Many of us loaded up on Spurs and West Ham players back in Double Gameweek 22, with those moves reaping rewards for FPL owners in Gameweek 23, as the likes of Son (13), Lanzini (14), Arnautovic (16) and Kane (13) racked up the points and gave some massive captaincy returns.
This week, we could be seeing the same names being favourable picks in our Captaincy Poll, but more so Harry Kane versus Southampton, who netted a hat-trick in the reverse fixture back in Gameweek 20.
A home tie for Manchester City against Newcastle is also likely to attract the attention of FPL bosses hunting down a solid captaincy pick – with Jesus still sidelined through injury, could Aguero replicate the 5 goals he scored against them two season back?
Liverpool are fresh off the back of a mammoth 4-3 win against Pep and Co. in Gameweek 23 and will now face a Swansea side that have conceded 9 goals in their last 4 games – is this the week Mo Salah bags his 11th double-digit points-haul of the season?
