Gameweek 34 Captain Polls
It’s Kane and Lukaku who are dominating the latest Hype Train poll for your Double Gameweek 34 captain. We await to see who is the most captained at the deadline. Kane edges the ownership charts slightly, but it’s a busy market.
It's the business end of the season for #FPL players this season, and that means there is extra bite with captaincy options with Double Gameweek's upcoming this weekend.
Who would you selected as your 'essential' captaincy pick from the below options?
