Fantasy Football Gameweek 11 Captain Tips: De Bruyne, Mane or Vardy?

Fantasy Football tips

Vardy captainers were the big winners once again as Leicester ran out 9-0 winners at St. Mary’s in Gameweek 10. Popular picks, Salah, Mané, Sterling and KDB all delivered whilst Aguero owners were left disappointed by Guardiola’s benching of the Argentine.

The Pep Guardiola selection roulette is in full swing as the fixtures start to pile-up for Manchester City, and after Aguero started the midweek Carabao Cup clash against Southampton, it would be a gamble to captain him this weekend against the same opposition. Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne were both given a rest for that match so expect them both to be involved against Southampton.

 

Fantasy Football Captain Tips GW11

With another big goals tally expected for City, is it worth the gamble to pick one of Aguero, Sterling or De Bruyne as your Fantasy Football Gameweek 11 captain? We’ve taken a look at three options for your FPL captain this week below plus an overall selection for who we’d advise as the GW 11 selection.

 

Option 1 – Kevin de Bruyne (10.2m) vs Southampton

The Belgian midfielder still leads the way for points in midfield. After some confusion, KDB was eventually awarded an assist, not a goal in FPL. This takes his assist tally to in incredible 10 after just eight starts. It’s Southampton up next who suffered a record-breaking defeat last weekend. If City rack up anywhere near the same amount of goals, expect de Bruyne to be front and centre in both the goals and assists. His midweek rest makes is likely he’ll start at the Etihad this weekend.

 

Option 2 – Sadio Mané (11.9m) vs Aston Villa

It’s Aston Villa up next for top of the table Liverpool. The Reds have had a bit of a wobble in recent weeks but have come out relatively unscathed. Mané picked up an assist against Tottenham after he was brought down by Serge Aurier for the winning penalty. That was the Senegalese international’s eighth attacking return of the season. He has failed to score or assist in any of his last three away league games but scored against Southampton and Burnley earlier in the season. With Liverpool being away from home, Mane as your Gameweek 11 captain is a big more of a gamble, but it could give you the edge over the teams in your mini-leagues who are all more likely to go with one of the Manchester City players.

 

Option 3 – Jamie Vardy (9.2m) vs Crystal Palace

It has become impossible to ignore Jamie Vardy in our captain picks this week. The Leicester forward bagged a hat-trick and an assist in their thrashing of Southampton last time out. His 20-point haul has sent him top of the FPL scoring charts, two ahead of de Bruyne. Six goals and an assist in his last four represents excellent form ahead of a Palace side without a clean sheet in their last three. This is another captain tip that is a bit more of a gamble because Leicester are away from home again, however they are in fantastic form and Vardy was rested for their midweek Carabao Cup victory at Burton.

 

FPL Captain Tip for Gameweek 11

As always it’s another close call but we’re opting for Kevin de Bruyne’s consistency and handing him the armband once again this week. He is the top scoring midfielder in the game and is eight points ahead of team-mate Raheem Sterling. De Bruyne seems to consistently get points where as Sterling is a bit more all or nothing, so De Bruyne is the best captain pick this weekend – as long as he starts the match!
