Picking a captain for gameweek 38 of Fantasy Premier League seems simple, on paper. However, there are a few other options to consider. Read on to find out more about this final gameweek of the season.

Gameweek 38 Fantasy Premier League Captaincy Choices

Top Captain Picks for Gameweek 38 Fantasy Premier League

Mohamed Salah

  • Goals: 22
  • Assists: 5
  • FPL Points: 225
  • FPL points in the last five matches: 35
  • Price: £12.9
  • Opponents: Crystal Palace (home)

Mohamed Salah is the most obvious candidate to captain in the final gameweek of the season. He is normally very good at home against weaker opposition. Despite blanking in midweek, Salah will be eager to get back on the scoring charts this week. The Egyptian has been in decent form with three goals and an assist in the last five matches. Salah is also fighting to win the Golden Boot. So selecting him as captain seems to be logical this week.

Harry Kane

  • Goals: 22
  • Assists: 13
  • FPL Points: 232
  • FPL points in the last five matches: 26
  • Price: £11.9
  • Opponents: Leicester City (away)

Harry Kane’s record against Leicester City is simply astonishing. Kane has scored 14 goals in 11 appearances against the Foxes in the Premier League. In fact, he scored in this corresponding fixture last season as well. Besides the great record Kane has against Leicester City, his recent form is also pretty good. He has scored five goals in his previous four away matches. Leicester City conceded four last time out at home and the importance of the fixture could see nerves coming in and mistakes being made by their defenders.

Besides, Kane would love to win theGolden Boot this season as he and Mohamed Salah remain tied on 22 goals after both of them failed to add to their tally in midweek. Despite a tough fixture, Harry Kane remains a strong candidate for the armband.

Patrick Bamford

  • Goals: 16
  • Assists: 11
  • FPL Points: 188
  • FPL points in the last five matches: 24
  • Price: £6.6
  • Opponents: West Bromwich Albion (home)

With 16 goals and 11 assists this season, Patrick Bamford has had a brilliant season and proved a lot of people wrong.

In the last three gameweeks, Bamford has scored twice and got an assist as well. Leeds United will be playing in front of fans for the first time this season. It promises to be a special occasion for the fans as they get to see their team play in the Premier League after a long time.

Opponents West Brom seem to be giving away lots of chances in recent weeks. So, everything points to Leeds assets doing well this week. For those looking for a differential, Bamford seems to be an ideal candidate.

 

Michail Antonio

  • Goals: 10
  • Assists: 5
  • FPL Points: 116
  • FPL points in the last five matches: 27
  • Price: £6.6
  • Opponents: Southampton (home)

Michail Antonio is another interesting option for the armband this week. West Ham United need just a draw to secure a place in next season’s Europa League. Opponents Southampton have conceded nine goals over the last six gameweeks, keeping no clean sheets. Last season, Antonio scored and got an assist in this corresponding fixture. So, one could consider him as well.

Gameweek 38 Fantasy Premier League Captain Choice is a tricky one

This week’s captaincy decision depends on the way FPL managers are thinking. Most will go for Salah which is the logical choice. However, if one wants to have some fun, Bamford and Antonio are decent options for sure.
