FPL Show: Mini-drought can spur on captain Kane

14 May 2021

Fantasy experts name Tottenham Hotspur forward among the top Gameweek 36 armband picks

Going two matches without a goal is often enough to put many Fantasy Premier League managers off captaining a player. But not Harry Kane (£11.8m).

Fantasy expert Gianni Buttice says the forward's mini-drought can in fact work in favour of those who keep faith in Kane for Tottenham Hotspur's Gameweek 36 match at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"How often does Kane blank three times in a row? Very, very rarely," Buttice says on the latest FPL Show.

"He's also had a week off and Kane very rarely gets a rest. He's had one and now I think he'll be raring to go."

Fellow expert Sam Bonfield believes Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) are just as strong picks as Kane for their respective matches against West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United.

But for managers willing to take a risk to try and move up their mini-leagues, Bonfield suggests a different Spurs player.

"It's going to be a Gameweek where the captaincy is quite spread," Bonfield explains.

"If I bring [Gareth] Bale in, given how low-owned he is, I might be tempted to captain him."
