TIG vs NYFC Teams Captain options, Differential Picks

André-Pierre Gignac: Arguably the safest option as captain in this Dream11 fantasy football match. He has been a phenom all season for the Tigres UANL and the onus will be on him here as well to do most of the offensive work for the Liga MX side.
X-factors, differential picks
Luis Enrique Quiñones: His pace on the wing and the ability to take on the opponents could make the difference. He is worth the shot as a captain in at least one grand league team.
Valentín Castellanos: The 22-year-old has improved by leaps and bounds this season and has been a consistent performer for the team.
Maximiliano Moralez: The 33-year-old has the game to make the most telling impact.
