Game Week 15 promises some tantalising fixtures which is great on the one hand, but on the other hand it makes choosing your GW15 captain very difficult indeed.
With very favourable home games for Chelsea and Man City and decent away trips for Spurs and Liverpool, there are potentially 4 or 5 really solid captain picks going in to this weekend.
The lingering fear of rotation following midweek games hangs in the air, as does the fear of big team flops against fearless rivals. But don’t fear, Fantasy Football Edge is on hand to bring you three top selections to choose from.
As always we have three top captain tips with the no.1 pick being reserved for our members. Not a member? Just sign up here to get full access.
GW15 Captain Pick No.3: Mo Salah
If this fixture was at Anfield then we would most likely be sticking Mo Salah as our number one captain tip for gameweek 15 and in all honesty it is only the other fixtures that are preventing us from still selecting him as our top captain pick.

The Egyptian is now head and shoulders above all other players and has smashed the 100 FPL points barrier in record time! Coming off the bench to score two against Stoke just underlined his class and his label as ‘the must have FPL player’. An away game against a Brighton side that has been pretty tight defensively at home might not be an easy game but it is still one that Salah could profit from.
Having started the midweek game on the bench he is sure to feature in this game and he surely warrants some serious thought as to the armband.
GW15 Captain Pick No.2: Kevin De Bruyne
KDB has not been discussed too much this season and it is probably because of the performances of his Man City teammates more than down to his own level of play. 3 goals and an assist from his last 4 games have shot him to joint second in the overall rankings with fellow city player Raheem Sterling. The Englishman would be a prime pick for this weekend too but we are fearful of a squad rotation from Pep – it has been coming for a while and he has continued to stick with Sterling but this could be the week where he gets a rest.
KDB on the other hand has played every single game of the season so far and with 4 goals and 7 assists from those 14 games and at a price of just £10.1m he is a very good proposition.

City may have struggled at times against the Saints but they are still bagging a couple of goals per game at least and they face a West Ham side that just shipped 4 at Everton. This could well be a massacre!
The last 4 times these two have met City have scored at least 3 goals and with KDB picking up plenty of bonus points this season (and likely to get the clean sheet point) he could be a very sensible captain pick for GW15.
