Fantasy football tips Gameweek 17 captains round-up

Our fantasy football tips Gameweek 17 captain choices are here to give you guidance in selecting both your skipper and a handy vice-captain!

Let’s do this top 5 countdown style…


Here we go…

5. Stewart Downing, West Ham (midfielder)

Looks to have a goal and an assist in him at the moment – one of each at home to bottom-of-the-table Leicester and he can most likely help himself to three bonus points too.

4. Alexis Sánchez, Arsenal (midfielder)

Showed with two assists against Newcastle that he can score you points even without scoring – next up, a dreadfully out-of-form Liverpool side.

3. Yaya Touré, Manchester City (midfielder)

With their three first-choice strikers all injured, City will be relying on the Ivorian for goals at home to Crystal Palace.

Back from suspension, Austin has five goals and two assists from his last four home games going into another against West Brom on Saturday.
