Bradley Wright-Phillips ($11.2m – 17.8% Ownership)
With arguably the best DGW match-up this round, BWP is the clear winner of the Captain Poll this round and it’s well earned. Personally, I have him in my top two, and I’m not sure if I’m set on him for number one just yet over teammate Sacha Kljestan, but I would not fault anyone for going with BWP.
Sacha Kljestan($9.7m – 6.2% Ownership)
A distant second to BWP, Kljestan has been on a great run of form for the past 8 weeks. During this time he has only failed to score in two games and is a big reason for the surge in offensive power that New York has exhibited. He’ll definitely be providing quality service during these games and his point potential makes him a stronger captain contender in my mind than this poll displays.
Sebastian Giovinco ($13.1m – 27.0% Ownership)
Giovinco rounds out the top three captains picks as the strongest of SGW options. Montreal are currently allowing about two goals per game when on the road and it does not take much of an imagination to see Giovinco exploiting that weakness to great gain.
