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.

      Need Sterling to rise 0.1 to get money on him, was going to get Hazard, tho it looks like he may creep up today as well.

      Hold and hope sterling rises, and hazard doesnt? Or just bite the bullet, and do it tonight.

        Probably won't play but Chelsea have EL on thursday

          Same position but with Mane.

          The main difference is if Hazard rises and Sterling doesn't?

            This is true - and suppose is possible, think I may just wait and hold out!

        • tucaoneo

          I figure, if Hazard is 10.9, 11.1 or 11.3 (unlikely) ahead of 34 and I want him out, then it makes no difference whether I buy him at 10.8 or 10.9 now. While for Sterling I got him at 11.3. I know I will lose some money when he is back in on WC 34. Might as well make 0.1 right now.

          bottomed.

          on FH. already have king and arnie (might turn to wilson). should I bring in fandy/lanzini or fraser as midfielder. fraser looks tempting but so does whu vs hud

            • 10 Years

            Fraser looks more tempting than Anderson/Lanzini right now imo

            1. altan8797

            Wouldn’t touch Anderson

        • YouReds
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 12 days ago

          Likely to line up with this 10 (-4) for 31

          Boruc
          TAA Diop Lejeune
          Salah Mane Hazard Anderson
          Barnes Wilson

          Is brining in Fraser for another -4 worth it over 31 and 33 if I’ve already got the above 10?

        • Arnauto
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 12 days ago

          A. Pogba, Kun > Mane, Vardy
          B. Camarasa, Kun > Mane, Wilson (and keep Pogba)

            B - Wilson may be a better choice until the end of the season anyway

        • Tmel
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 12 days ago

          Currently have 7 GW31 players and 2FTs - which is the best option?

          a) Haz & Wilson
          b) Boruc, Haz & Hig (-4)
          c) Boruc, Haz & Wilson (-4)
          d) Boruc, Haz, Hig & Wilson (-8)

              You're basically breaking even from appearance points alone.

            Keep Anderson or richarlson.

            Anderson has better fixtures but doesn't seen to have goal threat. Probably will have both out after gw33

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              5 months, 12 days ago

              Will you already have 11 players? If not would keep both, otherwise bit of a coin flip with form/minutes

            So tempting to make early transfers to save a few quid but even more important to wait than usual with no bench. Last thing I'd want is to bring players in only to find out in a press conference they or others in my squad are injured.

                True. Need to swap both to fund the Haz move though.

            bought rash at 6.8, would you sell for a hit to get wilson in? would cost me 0.4 extra to get him back, which i plan to do

                I will lose 0.3m but Rash should drop and Wilson should rise so may even out anyway

              It's fun watching people scramble taking hits to get 11 together when you're already set up with a transfer to spare 🙂

                It's fun getting the most in form looking players rather than people who loaded up on less attractive ones early

                      Yeah, almost all of my early blank prep transfers have outscored who I put them in for, I think Pereira last few (eurgh) and Brooks this week have been my only flops.

                    I think they should ban the home fans for a couple of games at their home matches, they were all cheering so punishing them all.

                    I was impressed with how Super Jack dealt with it, I'm sure a few years back he would have retaliated. The good work of JT I reckon.

                  Reflection on how society has disintegrated since Brexit reared its ugly head polarising & instilling hate, proud how Grealish reacted. Answered them in best way possible, but the assailant has to be harshly punished. In this current climate it has to be stamped out

                    First half of the first sentence is nonsense but agree with the rest. Some time in jail, a points deduction for Birmingham, and "accidentally" publishing his home address should do it.

                I know that when you have a saved FT and use your WC, you lose the saved FT.

                Is this the same when you use the free hit?

                I have 2 transfers this week. But plan to use my free hit this week. Do I still have 2 free transfers next week? Or back to one?

                  No. Use FH in 32 when loads more doubles after cup games decided

                    If you don't realise that when is best to play the chips at this stage is dependent on the state of your squad then you aren't much of a tactician.

                        GW32 will be the stand-out TC opportunity of the whole season. I'd seriously suggest people that have the TC left think twice before blocking themselves out of that by using the FH.

                          I agree. I wonder what you'd think of this. Bit long, sorry https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/comment/20016859

                            Too long for me to read now. But I plan to FH35 myself. There is a lot of potential rotation pressure looming from GW34 onwards, especially for those teams that reach the CL or EL SF stage. GW35 is going to be right awkward and I'd hate to be planning to BB that week.

                            That means playing GW31-33 normally with TC GW32.

                            1. Deulofale
                              • 3 Years

                              Fair enough. Avoiding FH in 31-33 is my plan too atm, with the option to plan in 32 if desperate for some reason, otherwise 35 or 38. Nice to know I'm not alone 🙂

                        I think 'thoughtless' is the operative word. Not convinced there's much intended malice or superiorty behind it. Just a sense of believing yourself to be better informed than the masses and trying hard to help people without a wide enough perspective.

                            I only have 4 players playing next week. And don’t have a wild card left.

                            So I’m thinking free hit this week. I already have a good few DGW players so should be fine for the DGW and hopefully TC Aguero if they end up with the DGW in GW 32.

                            How do I link my team with the account?

                            1. Kiwivillan

                              No WC does change things. Maybe not FH32 in that case

                              1. boroie

                                Yep... stupidly jumped the gun with my wildcard at the end of January when I had a load of injuries but could probably have patched it up for a -8/12 hit.

                                I think I should be good for GWs 31 and 32. It’s GW 33 which I think will ruin me!

                                  I would rather have better team for 32 atm and maybe FH 33 is an option?

                      A lot of people don't realise more games to be added to 32

                        Then they haven't bothered to understand the game they are playing. A lot of people take Crellin as chapter-and-verse as well, and he isn't.

                    Cheers Hawk Eye. Really annoying as I will want to make 2 or 3 transfers next week but will have to take hits to do so. So could do with the FT that I forgot to use last week.

                Fraser or Wilson?
                Mane or Firmino?
                To take a hit for the blank?

                  Wilson and Mane but wait until Liverpool have played mid week, he could get injured

                Pereira Ake VVD Robbo
                Salah(C) Brooks Hazard
                Higuain Vardy King

                Subs: Button, Pogba, Camarasa, AWB

                Mane or Salah for GW31

                  Probably captaining Mane, but Salah will be very highly owned. So Salah

                  i envisage a mo salah resurgence much like the hatty at bournemouth just as everyone lost faith

                  i may even TC mo!

                  I'm a bit stuck on what to do, maybe you guys could give me a pointer?

                  I'm doing Sterling > Mane as my transfer this week, but both are rising tonight.
                  When Sterling rises I will gain 0.1 profit on him, but if I transfer him out now I won't get anything...

                  Should I pull the trigger now and hope Mane rises twice or leave it for later?

                  1. Holding Matip
                    • 2 Years
                    5 months, 12 days ago

                    Actually silly question, ignore me!

                    If Sterling rises 0.1 then that profit I can use to buy Mane even if he rises 0.1!!

                      Yes your risk is Mane rising not Sterling, but they play weds so wouldn't rush personally
