He is the top-scoring player in Gameweek 37 so far with 23 points from three goals, an assist and four bonus points.
And yet he was backed by only 104,509, or 1.8 per cent, with the Fantasy Premier League captaincy.
The Gabon international is the most-bought player ahead of Sunday’s 14:00 BST deadline.
Gunners team-mate Alexandre Lacazette (£10.3m) should also be considered.
He is expected to return to the starting XI at John Smith's Stadium after being rested at Leicester City on Wednesday night.
The Frenchman has five goals and an assist in his previous five Gameweek appearances.
Manchester City's attack again provides a cast of alternatives for the armband.
But Jesus has been in prolific form on his travels, scoring in each of his last three away appearances.
Rested against Brighton in midweek, Sterling has supplied three sets of double-figure scores from his last four matches.
Meanwhile, their team-mate Leroy Sane (£8.6m) has claimed 24 points in his last three appearances.
Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) could provide a major differential as a captain.
He has improved his consistency in Fantasy ahead of a home meeting with relegated West Bromwich Albion.
Handed a role up front by Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson, the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for April has produced 14 points in each of his last two matches at Selhurst Park.
