Watchlist

The Watchlist – Jobi McAnuff

In the search for attacking points at a bargain basement price, savvy Fantasy managers need to look for the unlikeliest of players in the most improbable of places. At first glance, perhaps, Reading’s Jobi McAnuff, the 31-year journeyman midfielder with just one international cap to his name for Jamaica, represents a ludicrous route to Fantasy football glory.

Dig deeper, however, and he emerges as not only a solid Fantasy prospect but a possible contender for bargain of the season. Those eagle-eyed Fantasy managers who have already taken a close look at the assists table will have seen that McAnuff nestles in joint third place with Juan Mata on five, just behind Eden Hazard and Carlos Tevez – despite playing for one of the Premier League’s least attacking sides.

This ability to lay on chances for others has been a hallmark of his career, spent largely in the second tier of English football. In Reading’s successful promotion season of 2011/12 he registered 12 assists as well as five goals and, over the previous six seasons, where he also played for Championship stalwarts Watford and Crystal Palace, McAnuff amassed a total of 48 assists.

Aside from his clear attacking potential, a favourable run of fixtures over the next five Gameweeks (qpr, NOR, EVE, wig, avl) have propelled the Royals winger onto our newly-updated Watchlist rankings. Price is another factor. In the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game, McAnuff started at 5.5 but is now available at just 5.1, with an ownership of 1% making him a standout selection among the game’s differentials. In the Sky Sports game he is priced similarly (5.0) but only 0.3% of managers have noticed that he has now amassed 38 points, four more than Steven Pienaar and five more than Hatem Ben Arfa, who is owned by a quarter of Sky players.

With 31 points in the FPL game he is Reading’s most impressive Fantasy performer so far and has accrued the same number of points as the similarly priced Raheem Sterling, for example, though investing in McAnuff comes with a slight health warning. As shown by Tuesday’s Capital One Cup clash with Arsenal, clean sheet points are certainly unlikely for McAnuff, as Reading have conceded in every game so far this campaign. In addition, McDermott’s men have only mustered 11 goals so far, notching four on the road, meaning McAnuff’s team mates will need to step up their game if the wide man’s creative endeavours are to be further realised.

While the 7-5 home cup defeat by Arsenal last Tuesday may have felt like “a funeral” according to the Reading manager, the signs are positive that the team will improve and gather more attacking returns over their forthcoming kind run of fixtures, though. McDermott has moved away from a more cautious 4-4-1-1 in recent games, with a shift in formation to 4-4-2 in three of the last four Gameweeks producing seven goals. If Reading can pick their chins off the floor after the midweek Madejski defeat, the short-term at least looks potentially prosperous for McAnuff’s possible suitors.

    Please Rate my Wildcard Team:

    Begovic/Tremmel

    Baines/Rafael/Clyne/Gorkks/Nelsen

    Mata/Bale/Cazorla/Morrison/McAnuff

    RVP/Ba/Crouch

    Should I stick with Michu instead of Cazorla & then get Clichy for Gorks?

        I wildcarded last week and got 10 of those players in my team. I think despite Michu playing as forward, considering fixtures he won't get many points. Plus will get suspended for 1 game sooner or later. And Clichy is still a rotation risk and you will be pissed off when he will be benched in an easy home game.

              Yeah Valencia could be a good pick and i am not a fan of Morrison as well. Plus Clyne is not even half decent. Get someone who can get an odd clean sheet if budget permits.

                Who do you reckon I should pick? Foster - SOU (H) or Begovic - NOR (A)

                - Leaning towards foster as west brom are on fine form at home, however stoke are always a mission to break down.

                  Foster. People were saying Bego because Norwich don't score. They seemed to change their minds last night 🙂

                      did you even watched the game last night? Spurs bossed the game for about 80 minutes. just unlucky not to score. just see the stats, nuff said.

                            my point it all those 'people' were saying choose Bego over anyone else because norwich hardly SCORE. not that they're NOT scoring. then how can you predict if any team is gonna keep a CS? you just can't. Southampton scores consistently, which is why he should pick Bego.

                            Shots data suggests Sot will have more shots and goal and perhaps more goals.

                            Stats on goals scored in previous matches by the teams involved suggest WBA have a better chance of a cleanie.

                            It might come down to saves anyway so I'd go with Bego personally but it's really close.

                                Certainly will keep him. Even if he does not feature against Liverpool, will be fit for some nice home games.

                                        Ba's fixtures are so good after this GW that you just have to bench him and wait (unless we get news he is out for longer).

                                                                I'm facing a similar problem.

                                                                I have to bench one of Michu, Sterling or Pie.

                                                                Hopefully Berba's fitness will be confirmed either way and hopefully I won't have to make a tought decision!

                                                                  If Sterling continues to play further forward with Suarez playing off him as has been the case last couple of gameweeks, I can see Sterling out-scoring Pie. JUST.

                                                                                                                                i was thinking to keep HBA do: ivan---> shawcross

                                                                                                                                        If they score, he will most likely be invovled. Im holding one more week, then shipping. Home to Villa is a decent fixture imo.

I swear it never works out for me. Its like a cursed fixture - looks easy on paper but often isnt. That 9-1 win that Spurs had was an anomaly, Wigan just stopped playing in the second half.

I'm hoping to make small profit by Saturday morning, i've been playing the market with price rises etc. My other option would be to downgrade evans to a 4.5 player which should give me the money for Ba?
