Boost for best Bournemouth options after Wilson return

Callum Wilson‘s (£6.3m) return from injury looks set to act as a catalyst for interest in Bournemouth options ahead of Blank Gameweek 31.

The Cherries got their first Premier League away win since October on Saturday as Wilson inspired a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield.

After losing the previous nine on the road in a row, by a combined score of 28-4, Gameweek 30 proved a confidence boost for them.

“We needed it. We really felt for the supporters in that time without an away win so we’re really pleased for them. They had a long journey, left early and we rewarded them with a good clinical performance. We were good in attack and solid in defence so it’s a really good day.” – Eddie Howe

With home fixtures confirmed in both upcoming Blank Gameweeks, we’ve done further analysis on the best Bournemouth options available right now, and the impact of Wilson’s return.

Huddersfield Town 0-2 Bournemouth

Goals: Callum Wilson (£6.3m), Ryan Fraser (£6.1m)

Assists: Fraser, Wilson

No player had more shots on target than Wilson in Bournemouth’s 2-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon. Both of his shots inside the box were accurate, with one of them handing him the first goal since his last start all the way back in Gameweek 23. The forward’s energetic display also helped him provide an assist, rounding off a complete Fantasy performance and an 11-point haul. With Newcastle coming to the Vitality Stadium in the first of the remaining two Blank Gameweeks, and Burnley after that, interest in Wilson is expected to be high.

“He’s outstanding, he has unique attributes for us with his ability to run in behind and his work ethic. He knows where the goal is and it was great to see him score, he also provided an impressive assist for Ryan in a key moment in the game with a great reverse pass. My priority is to make sure he’s fit and fine, he might be looking at the England situation but I’m pleased to see him score and play well.” – Eddie Howe

The return of Wilson also appears to have helped Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) rediscover his golden touch. At the John Smith’s Stadium, no player created more chances than Bournemouth’s diminutive left-winger. In the absence of the England international, Fraser had not registered a single attacking return since Gameweek 22. The two have now played together twice between then and Gameweek 30, and Fraser has two goals and two assists in those matches, one of each coming at Huddersfield. Those wanting to invest in the Bournemouth attack over the Blank Gameweeks with more space in midfield than among the forwards should seriously consider Fraser now that Wilson is back in the side.

“That’s a prime example of our performance, it’s a really nice passage of play – the interchange of passes (between Fraser and Wilson) were excellent to see. It’s the kind of goal we scored early in the season, the team has been hit with injuries but it’s great to see that fluency back today.” – Eddie Howe

Those looking to sign Fraser might just want to wait until the next pre-match press conference for Bournemouth though. The Scottish international was able to complete the 90 minutes in West Yorkshire but did take a few heavy hits. Meanwhile, David Brooks (£5.1m), making his second start in a row since coming back from injury, did have to be replaced by Dominic Solanke (£5.0m), but Howe believes he will be okay.

“David Brooks was fine he was just very fatigued. Ryan took a couple of nasty tackles. We hope there are no ill-effects from that.” – Eddie Howe

Josh King (£6.5m) should not be overlooked too casually as he had more goal attempts than any other player at Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon, although fewer in the box than Wilson. The Norwegian did not register any attacking returns in Gameweek 30 but has scored in three of his last four at the Vitality Stadium.

There were other boosts for Bournemouth as they had Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m) back in central midfield after serving a two-match suspension. Having him in the side in the Blank Gameweeks should help the Cherries live up to their potential against Newcastle and Burnley.

“It’s a great boost to have Jeff back. Whenever he has been missing this season we have felt that absence. He is a real physical presence for us. I think he’s been excellent. He is another player who has come into the Premier League, improved, and is learning with every game. Naturally, he plays his way and I don’t think he’s changed that. He had been unfortunate with a few of his yellow cards.” – Eddie Howe

In defence, Chris Mepham (£4.5m) appears to be growing into the side with each passing Gameweek. Despite an uncertain first start against Wolves in Gameweek 27, he has looked a lot more assured as he fills in for long-term absentee Steve Cook (£4.4m). As interest in Bournemouth defensive assets grows, the former Brentford man is one of the nailed-on options.

“It has been really good early signs for Chris. He has attacked it really well so far. Mentally he has shown real maturity and hasn’t been fazed by the occasions and the games. I have been really pleased with him and I see signs of a leader in there as well, which is a great sign for the future.” – Eddie Howe

Meanwhile, it there was an eighth start in a row for Artur Boruc (£4.0m) in the Bournemouth goal, continuing his potential for those who are playing the Free Hit in Gameweek 31. The clean sheet recorded at Huddersfield was the first on the road since Gameweek 10, but in home matches, there is plenty to encourage investment in the Bournemouth back-line. In their last four at the Vitality Stadium, the Cherries have conceded just twice.

Elsewhere in the defence, Nathan Aké (£5.0m) continues to be an ever-present although is slightly dearer. The full-back spots don’t look quite so settled. Charlie Daniels (£4.1m) has started the last two in a row, but they are the only Premier League matches in the last nine Gameweeks that he featured from the beginning. Fellow left-back Diego Rico (£4.1m) has started just once in that time. On the other flank, Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4m) started the three matches prior to Gameweek 30, but Adam Smith (£4.3m) was deployed on the right against Huddersfield. He looks unlikely to be involved against Newcastle, after coming off with a hamstring injury.

“Adam Smith said he felt his hamstring very early in the game. Looks like he might be out for a few weeks.” – Eddie Howe

Huddersfield’s credentials were dealt another blow in their defeat to Bournemouth. While the Cherries were much improved with Wilson back, it says all Fantasy managers need to know that the Terriers both blanked offensively and conceded twice at home to a side that had been so poor away from home.

Jan Siewert’s men had just two shots in Bournemouth’s penalty box all afternoon, and only one of them was on target. Meanwhile, it did not take too much from the Cherries to break Huddersfield down, who conceded 50% of the shots on target that they faced.

Huddersfield Town XI (4-3-1-2): Lössl; Durm, Schindler, Zanka, Bacuna; Mooy, Stanković, Billing (Löwe 45′); Pritchard; Mounié (Grant 61′), Kachunga (Rowe 76′).

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Boruc; Daniels, Aké, Mepham, A Smith (Clyne 44′); Fraser, Surman, Lerma, Brooks (Solanke 65′); King (Mousset 90+1′), Wilson.

    Don't have a WC...if man City are likely to have a DGW on 32..it doesn't make sense take out Sterling and Aguero for one week. Any other obvious moves here? 0.0 itb

    Oh god, just realised there's an international break between 31 and 32
    The endless tinkering of the FH team awaits

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 15 days ago

      So just on value loss / gain when tinkering
      Original team it there in the background losing or gaining value nothing you can do about that.
      But it is still possible to lose or gain value on ones you transfer in and then move out again closer to the deadline. Correct?

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        That's how I see it, yes.

          Ok and as explained below any value gained is only for spending on FH team
          You got to go back to old team anyway after FH

        You can gain or lose value on transfers before you play the FH that contributes to your FH budget that GW, but you won’t retain those changes in value and nevertheless get your original team back with what ever changes in value have occurred

    When choosing players for your Free Hit Squad if you buy a player at say 6.1 on Monday, sell him on Tuesday, but then you decide to buy him back on Wednesday by which time he's increased to 6.2. You could saved 0.1 by leaving him in your team on Monday. True?

    2. Tony Moon

      Depends if Brighton beat Millwall in cup. If Brighton win, their GW33 game against Spurs is off.

    Need to let go one of Doherty (0.4 tied up value ) or AWB (0.3 ) for BGW.

    Which one?

    ( Doherty May or May not come back between 34-37 during WC34 but I don’t see myself playing AWB again although he’s a great enabler)

    So, which one 🙂

    1. Holmes

    How many hits are people taking going into 31. Haven't taken a hit all season, but I'm not averse to it this week

    A) 0
    B) -4
    C) -8
    D) more

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B, maybe C

    2. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      As of now, A

    3. No Salah
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      As of now 0, but willing to take -8 or even -12 as will atleast recover this value in 31+33

    4. davies
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      C to field 11 in both 31/33

      Worth it imo

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Don't forget you'll have another FT going into 33

    5. Dondo
      • 6 Years

      Last two GWs, C. Give me 11 players and im happy enough

    6. Amey

      B

    7. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      B probably to field 10

    1. dmhomag
      • 4 Years

      e get to keep the 0.1?

      1. Holmes
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yes but only for FH team, not your real team

  14. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Weird post as most will be taking hits. I have taken hits in previous weeks and got 31 guys in early. Problem with some of the early in transfers is they are not on form anymore.

    A. Should I just go Sterling to Haz for free.
    Then who do I bench?

    B. Is A plus another move to remove anyone else with playing 31 and 3.5 ITB. Any suggestions. I like something like Fanderson to Lanzini for a hit?

    Fab

    Robertson TAA Luiz Rice

    Salah Fanderson Brooks

    Higuain Vardy Barnes

    Boruc Sterling Kola Stephens

    1. Chilavert
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A + Fanderson > Mane not tempting?

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Would be but I got
        TAA Ro Watson and Salah already
        Decide to back the double on Pool defence awhile back and generally it has worked out ok. But going into 31 knowing most will have Salah and Mane is a bit scary.

  15. emyoueffsee
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Thoughts on my gw 31 team? Undecided on captain and will FH in 32.

    Fabianski
    Digne Rice Robertson
    McNeil Mane Hazard Salah
    Rondon Vardy Wilson

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      You got a FT and anything ITB.
      Just wondering as does McNeil really count for 11? 🙂
      Rest looks good, with similar I will risk Salah C despite lack of form.

      1. emyoueffsee
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Loads in the bank but that team is after taking a -4 last week and another for -4 gw31. Why doesn't McNeil count btw?, strange comment.

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Just joking re McNeil. Hope he is a nice diff for you.
          You have some picks that I would rather have now, but I got some in weeks ago. Think team will do nicely and -4 will probably be less hits than most.

          1. emyoueffsee
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            McNeil may do for 31(only got him to fund Hazard for gw30 as I preferred him over Hayden), will possibly upgrade for 33 with my FT.

    2. Chilavert
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      nice team.
      its between Salah and Mane i think

    3. Amey
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Nice team.
      I'm going to © Salah.

    4. pingissimus
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Very nice

    The consensus on here a few weeks ago was that 8-9 GW31 players will be plenty, but now its seems everyone is going hit crazy to field a full XI?

    1. Chilavert
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      exactly. im currently have 8. will take a hit to field 10

    2. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yeah, dont know why... 6-7 players would still be enough to survive this week

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      People looking at it as "free" I think.
      Costs 4 you are sure to get it back with a 2 pointer in both 31 and 33

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I guess if you have wildcard for after 33 and FH for 32, it's easy enough to do.

    4. Amey
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Some angry parents 😉
      Some don't want dabbers in their team anymore. Also the rise of Vardy, Wilson, Fraser, Mane as good options recently has coincided to popular player's like Son,Pogba,Rash losing their form

  17. Chilavert
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Getting Fanderson in GW27 was a mistake.
    Now how the sort this mess? Still have all my chips. FH in 32

    Fab (Button)
    Digne,Robertson (Doherty,AWB,Peltier)
    Salah,Fanderson,Brooks (Sterling,Pogba)
    Higuain,Rondon (Jimenez)

    1FT, 2.0 ITB

    Which one would u do

    1. Sterling,Peltier > Hazard, TAA
    2. Sterling, Peltier > Mane, Luiz
    3. Sterling, Jimenez > Hazard, Wilson or Mane, Vardy
    4. Sterling, Fanderson, Doherty > Hazard, Mane, Mepham (-8)

    1. Albrightondknight

    Someone talk me off the ledge, please. Did TAA instead of Mane for gw30, and that proved costly. Now raging a bit and looking at swapping the two, despite being firmly on #1 before Sunday.
    fwiw - ML rival is now just 3 pts behind me.

    1) Rashford > Vardy
    2) TAA, Pogba > Azpi, Mane (-4)
    3) TAA, Pogba, Rashford > 5.0def, Mane, Vardy (first -8 in 6yrs playing)

    Currently fielding 9 for gw31:
    Fab
    Robbo, TAA, Luiz
    Salah, Brooks, Hazard, Anderson
    Rondon
    Not playing: Pogba, Rashford, Doherty, Jimenez, AWB, Button

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      How about 3 as in a -8
      But some thing like
      Pog Rashford and Doherty

      To
      Higuain + playing 31 mid and defender
      Don't know what exact cash you would have for these 2 places?

        2.3itb. More than enough to pull that off with whomever I like.

        Would rather avoid selling Jim given the value wrapped up in him, but I understand the thought. I'll think about it. Thanks!

          I looked at this a lot I made 1.2 on Jimmy.
          Value will on Jimmy might cash out and I probably would not play home til 34 or 35 anyway.
          I took a hit to lose him for Vardy last week. Kinda worked out and Vardy still has another 90 minutes next week that Jimmy can't play and 33 too

      How much did Jim cost? If not losing heaps Jim>Wilson

        I’d lose .4 on him.

        1. Amey
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Sell Jimenez then.
          Wilson would rise twice at least to give you some cash back 😉

          Yeah 0.6m more than what I'd get for him atm so not selling myself

      It’s a Yes from me.

      1. gellinmagellan
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Bit confused about selling Jiminez. Would be doing for a profit (6.4), but is it better to field 9 and take a -4 hit to keep him for the coming games, or it adds no value?

    2. Jeanz

      Triple Bournemouth? A bit rich for me after beating Huddersfield and defo not King

      I’d ditch Sterling for Hazard

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Feel more optimistic about Bournemouth than Chelsea personally. Getting Hazard is purely rank protection in case he scores decent

        1. gellinmagellan
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Always feel skeptical with Hazard so I feel saner to just avoid him.

        2. pingissimus
          1 month, 15 days ago

          But it’s not - he is one of 3 quality mids available and he’s returning again. It’d surely be a little perverse to ignore him - especially for King.

      2. gellinmagellan
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        That's what I thought. You suggest Rashford > Vardy; Sterling > Hazard and Pogba > Fraser?

        1. pingissimus

        ^ This. Same here.

    3. pingissimus

      Not Rashford not Higuain

      Kun Jimi and 5 mids probably

      1. Chucky

        Which 5 mids? Sterling,Haz,Pogba and ? ?

    1. Jeanz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      That should read that I’m after a 5.0 or less defender to replace Kola

        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Rice would be a West Ham double up. Hmmmm. Also considering Bournemouth (but just short of affording Ake) and Burnley.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Thought of Rice as well.
          Chilwell maybe? @bur in 31 and @hud in 33

    Fab
    Robbo Yedlin

    Blanking players - Pogba, Jimenez, Bennett, AWB, Camarsa

    Ok I will have 12 for 31
    As I will do Sterling to Haz for free.

    My bench candidate are
    Rice,Barnes and Fanderson
    Is something like
    Barnes to Wilson worth a hit
    And then bench Rice

    2. pingissimus
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Nah

      Bench FA this time and get rid in 33. Rice is a decent pick and so is either Barnes.

      Wilson has Newcastle next and not Huddersfield and they are going to set up hyper defensive.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Yeah should probably not do any stupid. Try to maximize on not having to take a hit when many others will.
        I have had my hits including a -8 last week.

    1. GOTHAM City F.C.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        unless you meant Higuain or (Wilson - 4), then its Higuain.
