For Fantasy Premier League managers, picking the right captain can make the difference between a good Gameweek and a bad one.
So how do the best managers make that decision?
Three FPL experts have revealed the factors they consider when figuring out what to do with the armband in the video above.
"For my captaincy decision I usually turn to the heavy-hitters from the big teams," says Utkarsh Dalmia. "They're usually more consistent and the teams have a lot more to lose if they don't deliver."
Ben Crabtree, the 2016/17 FPL champion, has a similar method.
"I generally look at the big-hitters in my side and see who has the best fixture out of those options, giving preference to a home fixture," he says.
Sam Bonfield is planning to change her strategy this season.
Rather than picking a different player each week and hoping they have a good match, she intends to stick with one or two stars who tend to deliver the biggest scores over the course of the season.
"When you look at the underlying stats from players who have historically won FPL or done really well, the 'set-and-forget' captaincy choice seems to be a good idea," says Sam.
"The likes of [Mohamed] Salah, maybe [Harry] Kane or Bruno [Fernandes], over the course of the season their points totals do seem to level out and suggest that's the best thing rather than chasing the points."
