Fraser and Wilson proving unbeatable value for money in FPL

A goal and an assist apiece for Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson in Bournemouth’s 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town last night helped both players to another double-digit haul in Fantasy Premier League, their fourth and third such returns respectively this season.

The pair are proving to be economically shrewd purchases in FPL: returning 13.9 and 13.3 points per million spent, Fraser and Wilson are by far the best-value players in their respective positions this campaign.

Brighton and Hove Albion have also offered us Fantasy managers some decent cut-price options in recent months but it was a largely disappointing night for their most-popular assets: Shane Duffy was dismissed for violent conduct, Luka Milivojevic‘s late penalty wiped out the Seagulls’ clean sheet and Glenn Murray was substituted with a shoulder injury.

Murray did, at least, get on the scoresheet before his withdrawal and picked up two bonus points for his efforts in helping ten-man Albion to a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

We round up the goals, assists, team news, injury updates, Fantasy talking points and manager quotes from the two remaining Premier League matches contested on Tuesday evening.

Bournemouth 2-1 Huddersfield Town

  • Goals: Callum Wilson (£6.9m), Ryan Fraser (£6.2m) | Terence Kongolo (£4.3m)
  • Assists: Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson | Zanka (£4.4m)

With a home match against Liverpool and trips to Wolves, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United to come in the next five Gameweeks, Bournemouth sit bottom of our Season Ticker for fixture difficulty until the end of 2018.

Despite that, would anyone contemplate offloading their Cherries assets now?

Eddie Howe’s side have breached the defences of United, Arsenal and Manchester City in recent weeks and while there are mid-price alternatives available elsewhere with “better” fixtures, there are – as we mentioned in the introduction above – no midfielders or forwards who can compete with the value-for-money returns that Ryan Fraser (£6.2m) and Callum Wilson (£6.9m) have delivered in 2018/19.

It is a mark of just how successful a season Fraser is having that he now sits level with Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) on 86 points in FPL, though the Egyptian can, of course, pull clear of that score tonight against a porous Burnley side.

Wilson, meanwhile, sits top of the FPL forwards’ total points list until tonight at least.

It should be noted that this was Fraser’s first goal since Gameweek 5, though the Scottish winger had delivered four assists between his 18-point haul against Leicester and last night’s win over Huddersfield.

Goals aren’t something we can realistically expect too often from Fraser, either, given that his rather unimpressive minutes-per-chance average of 60.7 is bettered by over 80 other FPL midfielders.

The Scotland international’s goal last night indeed came from his only shot (and penalty box touch) of the evening.

Creativity is Fraser’s obvious plus point, with the Bournemouth man again demonstrating his assist potential from set-piece situations by whipping an indirect free-kick onto the head of Wilson for the Cherries’ opening goal and then providing a chipped cross that Joshua King (£6.3m) could only nod wide from inside the six-yard box.

No FPL midfielder has, at the time of writing, supplied more key passes or big chances than Fraser this season.

Wilson has combined goalscoring with assist-making this season and has now delivered eight of each in 2018/19.

The Bournemouth forward teed up Fraser for what turned out to be the Cherries’ winner and also provided two chances for King in the second half, which the Norwegian striker failed to capitalise on.

Just as Fraser was peerless in his position for creativity, no FPL forward has created more opportunities or big chances for his team-mates than Wilson ahead of Wednesday evening’s matches.

While Wilson’s rate of shots this season is far from outstanding (one every 36.7 minutes, bettered by over 30 other FPL forwards) it is the quality of his chances that mark him out as a particular menace in attack.

All 36 of his shots this season have come from inside the opposition box, with exactly half being deemed “big chances” – no other striker comes close to matching this number of clear-cut opportunities.

Tuesday’s goal against the Terriers indeed came from Wilson’s only attempt all match.

Howe praised Fraser and Wilson after the game:

They are both having very good seasons.

Callum Wilson’s an excellent finisher and the second goal was trademark from us this season. It was a good move and excellent finish from Ryan Fraser.

I was pleased to see our attacking play looking so dangerous early in the game but unfortunately for those players we didn’t have enough of the ball afterwards to sustain any pressure.

As Howe intimated, Bournemouth were largely ineffective from an attacking point of view after Fraser’s strike, not managing another shot on target after this point.

David Brooks (£5.2m), who had narrowly scored more FPL points than Fraser from Gameweeks 6-14, didn’t have the best of games on his return to the starting XI and was replaced by Junior Stanislas (£6.0m) on the hour, having not recorded a single shot, penalty box touch or key pass.

Brooks certainly looks the bigger rotation risk over Christmas, having twice been dropped to the bench when Howe changed formation against Champions League-chasing sides (of whom the Cherries play three of before the turn of 2019) and having completed 90 minutes on only three occasions.

The manner of Bournemouth’s win last night might have been of some concern to owners of Messrs Wilson, Fraser and Brooks, but of course, the Cherries’ rearguard effort might not have happened had they not raced into a 2-0 lead and forced Huddersfield out onto the front foot.

Howe reflected on his side’s “uncomfortable” victory:

We got the dream start and looked in total control, but they threw caution to the wind, put a lot of bodies forward ahead of the ball and played very well so credit to them for that.

Credit to my players as well for how we responded in the second half and how we managed to contain their aerial bombardment in set-plays and long throws. We dealt with that really well.

We always want the ball and it’s unlike us at home to be without it for long periods. Whether the scoreline or our recent run of results affected that I don’t know, but it was uncomfortable and that’s where I credit the players because they didn’t panic, and we managed the second period excellently. Some of our defending was superb and our goalkeeping played a big part in that.

David Wagner ought to have been pleased with his side’s efforts after going 2-0 down, with Terence Kongolo (£4.3m) halving the deficit before the break after a spot of head tennis and the Terriers then peppering the hosts’ penalty box with umpteen crosses thereafter.

Laurent Depoitre (£5.1m), in for the suspended Steve Mounie (£5.8m), was dominant in the air, with four of his five attempts on goal coming via headers. The Frenchman was profligate in front of goal though and wasted the best of Huddersfield’s chances when nodding at Asmir Begovic from a teasing Florent Hadergjonaj (£4.4m) cross.

Hadergjonaj, playing at right-back as Wagner switched to a 4-4-2, was so advanced in this match that his average position was further forward than that of any Bournemouth player. The Swiss defender fired over ten crosses in this match and had four attempts on goal himself.

Kongolo was shifted over to left-back as Wagner temporarily shelved a 3-5-1-1, with Erik Durm (£4.4m) playing further forward “out of position” on the left of midfield.

Alex Pritchard (£4.8m) was perhaps Town’s stand-out player on the night, playing alongside Depoitre up front and also registering five efforts on goal – his best opportunity being a turn and shot from six yards that Begovic beat out.

Aaron Mooy (£5.1m) was prominent playing on the right of midfield, meanwhile, coupling his usual menacing delivery at set-piece situations with two shots that forced Begovic into smart stops.

Despite the positive performance, Wagner was magnanimous in defeat:

I don’t think we deserve something from this game because you have to get your defensive work and offence right.

We’ve had enough opportunities to score four goals tonight, but we didn’t take them. How we played was great, yes, but you don’t deserve something if you give them goals away and don’t score.

The Huddersfield boss also gave an update on Abdelhamid Sabiri (£4.3m), who was withdrawn three minutes after himself being introduced as a substitute:

Abdelhamid Sabiri has what looks like a serious shoulder injury, but we will see what it looks like tomorrow.

Philip Billing (£4.5m) will miss out in Gameweek 16, meanwhile, having collected his fifth yellow card of the season.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Begovic; Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Brooks (Stanislas 62′), L Cook, Lerma, Fraser (Mousset 87′); Wilson, King (Mings 90+3′).

Huddersfield Town XI (4-4-2): Lossl; Kongolo (Mbenza 75′), Jorgensen, Schindler, Hadergjonaj; Durm, Hogg, Billing (Sabiri 75′, Sobhi 78′), Mooy; Pritchard, Depoitre.

Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Glenn Murray (£6.7m), Leon Balogun (£4.2m), Florin Andone (£5.0m)| Luka Milivojevic (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Jose Izquierdo (£5.9m) | Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m)

Brighton came out on top in the “M23 derby” on Tuesday evening despite playing for over an hour with ten men.

Shane Duffy (£4.7m) was dismissed on 28 minutes for a headbutt on Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) and will now be unavailable until Boxing Day.

The Irish centre-back’s FPL ownership had risen towards the 8% mark over the last month but with a three-match ban to follow and the Seagulls’ fixtures stiffening from Gameweek 17 onwards, we can surely expect a mass exodus over the coming days.

Duffy apologised for his actions on social media after full-time:

Can only apologise to everyone tonight for letting us down. Grateful for the team we have here for a huge win tonight, the boys were unbelievable. I’m disappointed in myself for even getting myself into the situation.

Brighton’s other defensive assets made it five matches without a clean sheet as Luka Milivojevic‘s (£6.0m) 80th-minute spot-kick denied Chris Hughton’s side a shut-out that they had worked so hard to preserve.

Leon Balogun (£4.2m) will stand to benefit from Duffy’s absence over the coming three matches and the Nigerian defender continued where Brighton’s first-choice centre-backs left off in scoring with his first touch of the game on 30 minutes to double the hosts’ lead.

That was the sixth goal scored by a Brighton centre-half this season.

Glenn Murray (£6.7m) had opened the scoring from the penalty spot but was to have his evening curtailed on 35 minutes when gingerly walking from the field of play with a shoulder injury.

Hughton provided an update after full-time:

He’s sore at the minute. We’ll see how he is in the morning.

The player himself provided more detail to The Argus:

I fell and hurt my AC joint. Right now it’s sore but hopefully it will settle down and we will make a decision on Wednesday or Thursday.

[The physios] are withholding their judgement so we will see what it’s like when it has cooled down.

Just as Balogun had made an impact on his introduction, so too did Murray’s replacement, Florin Andone (£5.0m).

The pacy Romanian striker had shown promise in the 2-1 win at Huddersfield on Saturday and his speed on the break led to Brighton’s third goal, with Andone latching onto a hoofed clearance and extending his side’s lead with a fine individual effort five minutes before the interval.

Should Murray’s injury prove to be a serious one, then Andone’s cut-price availability may make him a tempting third-price forward option for those Fantasy managers packing their defence and midfield with heavy hitters – though as we mentioned earlier, Brighton’s upcoming games are among the toughest in the division.

Jose Izquierdo (£5.9m), who had controversially won the penalty that Murray converted, also limped off early in the second half, with Hughton providing an update on the Colombian winger’s injury:

Izquierdo’s injury got worse as the game went on. We certainly didn’t want to make our last substitution that early in the second half, particularly knowing we’d be up against an onslaught.

That Mathew Ryan (£4.6m) had precious little to do in the Brighton goal up until Milivojevic’s penalty said as much about the Seagulls’ excellent rearguard effort as it did about Palace’s limitations in attack, with the Australian goalkeeper saving comfortably from Andros Townsend (£5.7m) and Max Meyer (£5.6m).

Milivojevic had gone closest to pulling a goal back in the first half when his shot was cleared off the line and it was the Serbian penalty specialist who gave the Eagles a glimmer of hope with ten minutes remaining after Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m) had been felled.

James Tomkins (£4.3m) proved to be a threat in the air again, forcing Ryan into his third save of the match in stoppage time after registering two other efforts from set pieces earlier in the game, though struggled from a defensive point of view and was culpable for Andone’s solo goal.

That Palace’s strike pairing of Zaha and Townsend failed to record a single shot on target from inside the Brighton box summed up the Eagles’ attacking output.

A disappointed Roy Hodgson said after the match:

The second and third goals are just as disappointing and frustrating [as Brighton’s first goal], to use two buzzwords. When you come here hoping to win the game and you lose 3-1 there are no good feelings or anything particularly positive that I can say.

In every football match you can point to episodes and things being different but the second goal is something that we have to take total responsibility for and the third even more so; it wasn’t even an attack, just a clearance.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-4-1-1): Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo; March, Gross (Balogun 30′), Propper, Bissouma, Izquierdo (Knockaert 49′); Murray (Andone 35′)

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Hennessey; Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt; McArthur (Schlupp 73′), Milivojevic, Kouyate (Sorloth 58′), Meyer; Townsend, Zaha.

    After the Watford game...
    A. Keep Richarlison
    B. Switch to Anderson (no WH attack)
    C. Get Fraser (not owned yet, saves cash)

    1. Hulk Smash

      If I had nothing else to do I might look at Richarlison to Anderson as he has form and fixtures.

      To be honest I'm not in a mad rush to get rid of him. I find chopping and changing between mid price midfielders is usually not worth it and other priorities will probably emerge within a week or two.

            Ok thanks, hopefully saiss will partner neves in the future. In this game I predict saiss and moutinho to start in the middle

        I can just afford Duffy to TAA...but I've already got Lovren

        Anyone got other suggestions for a good fixtures defender 5.3 or less?

          I’d just go TAA not sure if Lovren is seen as a starter but double up on pool defence isn’t a bad thing.

          We'll see how today goes, but I'm thinking about keeping Hazard for after the City fixture. He's got good fixtures after that (bha, LEI, wat, cp, SOT, NEW), not to mention City has conceded in four of the past five games.

          1) Decent idea, could work - keep him
          2) Sell to enable Auba

              Well no guarantee but I backed the same 3 in accumulator. Sky bet had them in boost this morning

                What’s their minimum amount of teams for an acca?

                1. Tommy Svindal Larsen
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  5 months, 19 days ago

                  I really hope this doesn't sound condescending, but acca means accumulator, hence the accumulation of odds. So the minimum is 2. A double is an accumulator of two teams, a treble, 3 and so on.

                  Hope that helps!

                    5 months, 19 days ago

                    With Paddy Power you need 4 teams to engage an accumulator. So was wondering.
                    Thought with a double you needed to bet the money twice.

              Same here, need Pool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs to win for over 1k return.

                Yeah mine is 1.5k

                  Actually come to think about it mine is also 1.5k if all 4 come in but 500 only if Pool, Chelsea, Spurs win but Arsenal lose or draw.

                  Godspeed brother, lets do this 😎

              I’d probably wild card that.
              Mine?
              Ederson
              Robbo Coleman Doherty Dunk WanB
              Sane Salah Rich Maddison Ward

                Depends on Robbo really, probably not - a hit to get Laca for Arnie maybe

                1. SADIO SANÉ
                  • 3 Years
                  5 months, 19 days ago

                  The thing is rotation gonna get people at the weekend too - Sterling should start though I guess

                  5 months, 19 days ago

                  I was thinking Salah and Arnie to Son or Anderson and then wild card after.

                    • 3 Years

                    Yeah same, just means I'll have a couple of turd fixtures for my defence

            Thoughts on this WC draft?
            I was locked into a team with 2 fodder players which is no good for Xmas so I am trialling switching F.Anderson for Snodgrass - he is clearly less explosive but seems to be their best crosser and is in favour at the moment... I think it helps make the team more balanced

            £0.2itb
            Fab
            Alonso, TAA, Bellerin
            Sterling, Sané, Fraser, Snodgrass
            Kane, Auba, Wilson

            (Hamer) (Doherty, Gunnarsson, AWB)

            I have a lot of value locked up in the BOU boys and willing to stick with them for now.
            Happy to take all comments!

              I quite like this team to be honest. Because of rotation I would probably go with Son>Sane which would allow you to keep FAnderson>Snoddy(?)

              1. donlobatto

                • 1 Year
                5 months, 19 days ago

                It wouldnt enable that unless I downgrade another defender - i.e. Bellerin to Schindler

                  Ahh fair enough. But still would prefer Son over Sane, at least then you have money banked if you needed to make any quick swaps. TAA>Robbo?

            2. Amey

                Not keen on Bellend as ARS do not keep cs.
                Digne might be a better bet.
                Snodgrass isn't heavy enough for me. Not sure what's best at that price level.

                  Thanks for the feedback - I don't love the Snodgrass pick and scrabbling to try and get Fanderson back in but there's a big differential

                  1. Jafalad

                    • 9 Years
                    5 months, 19 days ago

                    Can you d/grade Bellend to Digne to u/grade Snoddy to Fanderson?

                    1. donlobatto

                      • 1 Year
                      5 months, 19 days ago

                      If I switch Sané for Son then it becomes much easier to get FAnderson back

              • AndyCook

                I would lose Kane, Snodgrass and Bellerin for Lacazette, Son and whoever you can get at the back. Or go 5 mids to upgrade Snodgrass. I don’t think Kane represents value for money in a team with so many big hitters already

                1. donlobatto
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year

                  Interesting idea. I think will assess Kane tonight and make a decision otherwise Son and the Aubamazette dream team may work!

              Including last nights fixtures I am currently at a potential points loss of 191 from just not picking the right starting XI or captain from my squad of players.

              Can anyone top this?

                      It is a website that can figure it all out for you.

                        Can I say the name of the site? It's not a forum so wouldn't take people away from here it just calculates figures using your existing team (so it always works in arrears).

                            It's actually really interesting read. You just need your ID number (found in the URL on the "points" page) and you can enter your league code and see the stats of everyone in your league. Very interesting tbh!

                Initial thoughts of Arnie replacement with this team

                Ryan
                Robbo Alonso Doherty Wan-b Bennet
                Hazard Sane Martial Richarlson Mcdonald
                Arnie Kane Wilson
                1.7m itb

                Who should I downgrade to go Arnie to Lacazette? Only need to downgrade by 0.8m

                  Could go straight to Mitro. Fixtures look good

                How does this lot look?
                Lots of talk about dropping Alonso and Robertson, even Auba to Laca?
                What would you do with the extra money though?

                    Kiko can be changed imo. What about calum chammbers ?? 4.2 OOP ( 😛 ) playing CM amd having good stats.

                  I've been a happy Fraser owner but wow, Wilson providing unbelievable returns for any price never mind sub7 mil - 8G 8A?!

                  Wish I hadn't tried to be maverick by picking King instead for GW1!

                  Was thinking Salah Arnie to Kane Richarlison was the obvious moves, Wilson tempting though despite fixtures

                    • 2 Years
                    5 months, 19 days ago

                    See how Richarlison does tonight. Not a fan of him up front

                    I am actually thinking of a King and Wilson double up. They'll just go on scoring whoever they play.

                      5 months, 19 days ago

                      5 goals and 1 assist in 12 games is not earth shattering.

                        King? Been injured though and missed games. Had a 50% goal involvement at the end of last season.

                      5 months, 19 days ago

                      I have Arnie hole in my team. Will watch tonight matches and decide what to do. If Hazard underperforms again and kane punishes me i will eat my words and go after Kane. Otherwise Wilson is the one also Mitro in the list.

                    C: Martial + Kane + Auba © (-4)

                        B only because I’d bet that Leroy is rested this wknd.

                          Don’t bring in Fraser now.
                          Anderson should be a good pick.

                            I already have Doherty for sterling 😀
                            Will get Hojbjerg for Robbo.
                            Also have Big boy Kamara if any more players want to hurt me. I hate this gw and next too 😛

                          Barring any injury or suspension
                          Salah Arnie to aubameyang Anderson (-4)?
                          Or get Fraser instead of Anderson?

                            I’m considering the same moves.
                            I wouldn’t be getting in Fraser now.

                            Thoughts on Chicharito for arnie?

                            Would like a westham player for the current fixtures and arnie is all I had

                              Not a bad pick. Just his minutes could be a worry

                                  5 months, 19 days ago

                                  Who else would they play though if arnie is injured?

                                  Don’t fancy myself Anderson

                                    Carroll coming back. Perez did well.

                              2. Kevin de Blanke

                                Didn't Chicha play 90minutes every game last season scoring just about zero goals?

                                  I thought this too... something makes me want to avoid him. Think Anderson is worth the extra mill

                                      Such a predicament. Apprently Anderson was not great yesterday

                                      Snoddy would be great for 5.3 but he's not nailed

                                Expected points for Kane (lei) and Auba (HUD) this coming gw?

                                Deciding whether it’s worth to get Auba in for a hit for one week to get a good captain.

                                I think kane gets 5/6 and Auba around 10.

                                Surely Kane is due a monster haul?
