Saka, Martinelli, Arsenal

Some of the world's best Fantasy managers reveal their plans for the armband in Gameweek 28

The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts give their thoughts on who to captain in the absence of Erling Haaland (£12.1m) in Blank Gameweek 28.

What the experts say

I am going to plump for Harry Kane (£11.8m) this week. He heads in to Gameweek 28 on the back of a brace and averages 7.29 points per match against opponents Southampton

It's a close call between Bukayo Saka (£8.5m) and Kane this week. Saka has registered no goal involvements for Arsenal's last six goals, but the Gunners have posted elite numbers at home this season, so I am backing him to come good again.

Saka has the best combination of form, team form and fixture. Other Arsenal players can be considered, but I think he's the best option.

Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

There are a number of good options this week including Kane, Gabriel Martinelli (£6.6m) and Saka. I will likely land on Saka. Arsenal have scored seven goals in their last two home matches and Saka registered a goal, an assist and a bonus point in those two fixtures.

James Maddison (£8.2m) has the potential to be a great Differential captain this week for those that own him. The midfielder has been involved in 14 of the 19 goals Leicester City have scored while he has been on the pitch this season, and his 57 shots and 45 chances created are both team-leading totals.
