Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 17 captains round-up

This Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 17 captains round-up is here to help you select a skipper and handy vice-captain.

Recommended captain picks for this Gameweek include players from Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Leicester City, Manchester United and Liverpool.

1⃣ Kane/Son TOT, FWD/MID

The Spurs duo will have benefitted from an unexpected rest after their home fixture against Fulham was postponed.

They take on a Leeds side in good form, but they should take confidence from having seen them lose 6-2 at Man Utd not so long ago.

2⃣ Dominic Calvert-Lewin EVE, FWD

Hasn’t been prolific of late, but there are some decent reasons to take a punt on him at home to West Ham.

Firstly, it’s a fixture he scored a hat-trick in earlier this season when they met in the EFL Cup.

Secondly, he’ll have Richarlison back alongside him, increasing his supply line.

Thirdly, Everton have had a bit of a rest following the cancellation of their game against Man City, while it will be West Ham’s third match in six days.

Nevertheless, it would be a gamble.

3⃣ Jamie Vardy LEI, FWD

Has a great record in away games this season and should be relatively rested for the trip to Newcastle having started on the bench at Crystal Palace.

4⃣ Bruno Fernandes MUN, MID

Didn’t have a lot of joy at home to Wolves, and the visit of Aston Villa could be a similar game.

5⃣ Mohamed Salah LIV, MID

Usually one of the top picks, but a trip to Southampton is a tough fixture.
