Today my captain (Walcott) didn't play...will I get a substitute captain automatically, and if so, how is he picked?
Yes I did the same. I'm assuming the worst. I think if you don't select a captain then the highest value player is captain, regardless of whether he plays. If you select a captain I think you are stuck with him until you change.
Slipper is right
Im wrong. I miss read it. Captain goes to most expensive player if no captain is selected. Not if captain doesn't play. So those of us with Walcott or RVP as captain just get a big fat 0
Captain goes to your most expensive player. Which works out well for me with it being baines!
It does not go to your most expensive player. Its just a case of tough luck!!! I've got Walcott and i'm screwed as well........
