But deciding on your captain each week can be a very tough decision that can make or break your game week.

With this in mind, 101GreatGoals will be providing you with an insight into the best captain picks for every game week this season.

Best FPL captains gameweek 3

Bruno Fernandes vs Nottingham Forest (8.5)

Bruno Fernandes is yet to open his account for Manchester United this season.

However, the midfielder has been very unlucky in his lack of points. He has the highest xG of any player in the Premier League from the opening two game weeks and should have a great chance of bagging some points this weekend.

Marcus Rashford vs Nottingham Forest (9.0)

But with the Englishman still playing up top and up against much easier opposition than Tottenham in GW3, a decent return seems likely.

Rashford is predicted to get 6.7 points this week, which is the second most of any player on FPL.

Erling Haaland vs Sheffield United (14.0)

The man with the highest points prediction in FPL this week is Erling Haaland with 8.3.

The Norwegian is yet to face Nottingham Forest but he is expected to score more than one against the Blades.

A lot of Haaland’s 38 goals last season came against teams in the bottom half of the table and he has already shown vs Burnley when he bagged two that he is very capable of dominating the weaker sides.
