We've all been there, and it's a tough decision to make. The FPL season has started and you're lacking a bit in points after the first couple of game weeks - so what do you do? Well, you do what any level headed person would do, and you use your triple captain early.

The triple captain is my personal favourite of all the Fantasy Premier League tools - it allows the user to triple the points total of their designated captain for that particular game week rather than the usual double points you receive on your captain, but unlike the wildcard, once you've used it, that's it, no second chances.

Just like the wildcard, it can be useful to use your triple captain for a double game week for the same reasons - due to double the chance of them receiving a triple score. However, if you're lacking in points in your mini-league and fancy using your triple captain this weekend  - here are five players who could deliver for you granted you have them in your squad...

Kai Havertz - £8.4m

The 21-year-old had a slow start to life at Chelsea over the first few games of the season, but finally managed his first goals for the Blues the other night against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup - and despite the level of opposition, it will give Havertz the confidence he needs to properly kickstart his career at the club.

This weekend Chelsea face West Bromwich Albion, a side that has lost their opening two Premier League games, conceding 8 goals in the process. I expect the young German to finally get his first goals in the Premier League this Saturday, having been in fine form during his time at Bayer Leverkusen with an impressive goalscoring record of 36 goals in 118 appearances in the Bundesliga from midfield, as well as registering 22 assists.

Havertz will definitely be a player to consider triple captaining for GW3.

Raul Jimenez - £8.5m

Raul Jimenez has been in fine goalscoring form this season, with two goals from two appearances in the Premier League. The last campaign saw the Mexican register 17 goals from 38 appearances, and it appears Jimenez has carried this form into this season. Wolves face a West Ham side that have lost their opening two games so far this season, against Newcastle and West Ham - and it is likely that Jimenez will be on form against the Hammers come Sunday.

The 29-year-old did net against the Hammers last season in the away fixture, and if history is to repeat itself, then Jimenez would be a great option to triple captain this weekend.

Aleksandar Mitrovic - £6.0m

The Serbian striker had a great game last weekend against Leeds scoring a brace - despite Fulham losing the game 4-3. This weekend sees the Cottagers face Aston Villa at home in game week 3, and I can see Mitrovic enjoying a fruitful game against the Villans. Last season, the 26-year-old netted 26 times in the Championship and has two goals from two games this season - finally finding his goalscoring form in the Premier League again, making him a must in your team and a great option to triple captain this weekend.

Harry Kane - £10.5m

Mr. Inevitable - Harry Kane is always a great option in your Fantasy Premier League team, and this weekend could be another great option to triple captain, with Spurs facing Newcastle at home on Sunday. The Englishman scored a brace against Newcastle last season in their away fixture at St James' Park, and so far this season has 1 goal and 4 assists from his first two games and last season scored 18 league goals from 29 appearances - so expect a dominant display against the Magpies this weekend from the 27-year-old.

Danny Ings - £8.4m

Last weekend saw the 28-year-old score a brace against Tottenham in a tough 5-2 defeat, but Ings' goalscoring prowess showed promise that he will return to his form of last season, where he scored a career-best of 22 league goals. This weekend sees the Saints face Burnley, who themselves lost their opening game of the season 4-2 to Leicester City - and if with Ings in good form, we could see a stellar performance from the Englishman against the Clarets. If you have Ings in your squad, I would certainly recommend using your triple captain on him for GW3.
