Cartola FC is the best-known fantasy game in the Brazilian Championship. In the game, it is possible to select 11 starters and five more reserves. In the starting team, the user chooses an athlete to be the captain and have their points multiplied by 1.5. In other words, if a captain player scores 10 points, his score increases to 15.
To help the card makers, the Futebol na Veia team chose four players as tips for captain in the 23rd round of the Brasileirão. Check out!

Top scorer of the year in Brazil (and in the world) with 33 goals, Argentine Germán Cano is synonymous with the ball in the net. The Fluminense center forward will face his former club Vasco da Gama in the 23rd round and is a great choice to receive the captain’s armband at Cartola. He has already scored three times against Cruzmaltino since he started playing for the Laranjeiras club.
This season, the striker found the net five times in the last five matches, also distributing one assist. At Cartola, Cano costs 14.15 cartoletas, but it’s worth the investment.
In 2023, midfielder Raphael Veiga is Palmeiras’ biggest highlight, leader in goals (16) and assists (14). To play him at Cartola FC, it requires 18.07, being the third most expensive in the fantasy game. The investment is worth it, especially for the captain, as the player always delivers, with an impressive average of 7.97 points.
If he maintains his average in the 23rd round in the match against Goiás, at home, he will give the cardmaker’s team with Veiga as captain 12.95 points. It is worth noting that the midfielder is still treated as a doubt in the game because he was on duty for the Brazilian team last Tuesday (12) and played one minute in the 1-0 victory over Peru, in Lima, but should be selected by Abel Ferreira.
The most expensive position at Cartola FC goes to the Brasileirão’s top scorer, Tiquinho Soares, author of 13 goals in 18 matches, in addition to four assists. After spending a period injured, leader Botafogo’s number 9 returned to the field in the 2-1 defeat to rival Flamengo.
Before the injury, Tiquinho had scored four goals in four matches this season. Therefore, in this round, in the away duel against Atlético-MG, the striker is a good choice, mainly because he found the net six times as a visitor in this championship.
An option away from the spotlight is striker Deyverson, who defending Cuiabá will face, at home, América-MG, the worst defense in the championship, leaked 45 times. The former Palmeiras player has eight goals in this championship and shares third place among the top scorers with Marcos Leonardo and Paulinho.
Although Dourado is not one of the best hosts at Arena Pantanal, Coelho has not yet won as a visitor. Therefore, Deyverson, a cheap option at Cartola FC costing 8.46, is worth it for those who don’t have many cards.
