Still haven’t gotten over game week 13, and here we are at the mantle of game week number 14. As we mentioned in our earlier post, we find ourselves right in the middle of some intense footballing action. Here are our Captain predictions for game week 14:
Our captain choice this game week is, Sergio Aguero (12.8). He may have been unlucky in terms of goals against Southampton, but the form he has carried over from last week’s game against Bayern Munich was clearly visible as the Argentine set up 2 out of his teams’ 3 goals. Also, it should be noted that Aguero’s price is skyrocketing at the moment-an indication of other fantasy manager’s in his abilities. Let us look at some other decisive statistics:
Goal ATTEMPTS: 5.3
Shots on TARGET: 2.5
Shots from INSIDE the BOX: 4.23
POINTS per game: 6.7
Our first alternative captain suggestion would be a new entrant in this space – Eden Hazard (10.2). The Belgian international is just waiting to explode and has been simply unlucky when it comes to goals, and subsequently fantasy points. But you cannot ignore his deft touch, the confusing footwork and the pacy runs down the touchline which has the opponent players frustrated at all times. The Chelsea midfielder would have more scope as Costa sits out suspended for this game week.
Our final captain alternative for game week 14 would be Alexis Sanchez (11.0). A regular entrant in this space (for obvious reasons), the Chilean may have dropped down the pecking order over time, but still appears to be in goal-scoring mode every time he get on the ball. Also, with the recent online movements about ousting the Gunner’s manager, Alexis might want to redeem himself for the man who brought him to the London club.
Assuming Aguero’s consistent point average, captaining Aguero should fetch you about 15 points in Gameweek 14. Could it be more? Honestly, as per my observations there is almost always some player who gets more than 10 points every gameweek, and ideally he should be your Captain. Last week it was Clichy and Austin, before that I think Ings. But ask yourselves truthfully, would you have kept any of these players as your captain, ever? Fantasy football is a game of numbers. Play for the long run.
