Fantasy Premier League Captaincy Contenders for FPL Gameweek 35
Hello to all Fantasy Premier League Managers around the World and welcome to Fantasy Football Pundits FPL Captains Poll, where we give you, the FPL Manager, a chance to cast your vote and keep an eye on all your FPL rivals’ selections.
With only 4 gameweeks remaining for us to climb those cash mini-leagues and improve our overall rankings to help save face amongst our friends and peers, Gameweek 35 might be the last week which resembles some sort of normality, with two double gameweeks lurking on the horizon.
Also, I believe a quick introduction is due, as I, @JNOUnited have been given an opportunity to take this article and run with it for the rest of the season.
My name is JNO and I’m a fantasy football “Pundit” on Youtube, doing a Weekly Show called FPL Today on my channel JNO United and now also a video to go with this article, Captaincy Candidates.
With no blanks or double gameweeks to contend with this weekend, normality has returned for the Fantasy Premier League community, leaving us to ponder over the fixtures whilst attempting to find which players and clubs are going to score the most goals.
We must, however, also respect and keep one eye on those clubs who have something to play for, and which teams are just coasting until the season end, with one eye on their 5-star luxury holiday.
Christian Benteke is likely to catch the eye and tick all the right boxes ahead of Gameweek 35. After a great performance against his former club Liverpool in Double Gameweek 34, Benteke and co will welcome a Burnley side that have failed to win a single game away from home and have conceded 5 goals in their last two outings.
Harry Kane’s home game against Arsenal in the North London derby doesn’t look like the easiest fixture on paper, but his record in London derbies is excellent so shouldn’t be ignored.
Arsenal haven’t looked anywhere near their best in the second half of the season and with their London rivals carrying the better, more consistent form, Kane looks like a very tempting captaincy pick for Gameweek 35
Then, there’s also the likes of Aguero, Rashford, Gabbiadini and Joshua King facing relegation strugglers Middlesbrough, Swansea, Hull and Sunderland. Potentially, the two southern clubs mentioned above have little to play for, however, both Manchester sides still have Champions League places to chase as they both fight it out for a top 4 finish.
As always, we ask that you cast your Gameweek 35 captaincy selection to the poll below and be sure to reach out to us on Twitter with any comments or questions you might have about your teams and transfers.
NB: If you’re casting your vote via a smart phone, please tap the player’s name twice, or until they have a green mark next to the left of their name – it gets stuck sometimes 🙂
