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

The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts give their thoughts on who to captain in the biggest Double Gameweek of the season.

If Erik ten Hag says that he is fit to play, Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) is the standout captaincy pick.

However, with 12 teams playing twice, there are a number of good alternatives. I also really like James Maddison (£8.2m). He's had 26 shot involvements in the last four matches, more than any other midfielder.

The Brighton & Hove Albion midfielders could also be excellent options.

If we hear positive news regarding Rashford's fitness then he looks hard to ignore. But I am tempted by both Solly March (£5.1m) and Maddison. Both have really nice fixtures across the Double.

It's Rashford or the Brighton midfielders. Assuming he reprises the No 10 role for the Seagulls, Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) would be my choice.

You can't overlook Rashford, though. He's Manchester United's key threat, so assuming he gets the green light to play and shakes off his injury, I'll likely give him the armband.

Rashford has been returning nearly every match and has been getting double figures every few weeks. Across two fixtures, I like his chances of a big total.

Fitness permitting, Rashford will be my captain. If there is any doubt, I may be tempted to switch to Bruno Fernandes (£9.6m).

There are a lot of tempting options this week, with Brighton midfielders, Maddison and the Chelsea players all decent punts.

But providing he is passed fit, I will go for the most consistent player after Erling Haaland (£12.0m), in Rashford
