The FPL Digest: Fraser’s creativity and what to do with Wolves assets

Our final Digest piece of the season is here ahead of Gameweek 38.

In this article, we scrutinise a player, team and discussion point that attracted our interest in the previous weekend’s matches – be it for good or bad reasons.

The Player – Ryan Fraser

What a season Ryan Fraser (£6.3m) has had.

Yes, there have been lean periods: the Scottish winger blanked in ten matches between Gameweeks 19 and 29.

Fraser is, however, the best-value Fantasy midfielder or forward in 2018/19, based on points per million spent (28.4 at the time of writing).

A total of 21 attacking returns (seven goals, 14 assists) is more than in his previous two campaigns combined, with no midfielder under £8.5m directly involved in more of his side’s goals this season.

Fraser provided the cross for Nathan Ake‘s (£5.1m) winner against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday and only Eden Hazard (£11.0m) has more assists to his name this season.

Bournemouth’s win over nine-man Spurs has to be taken with a pinch of salt, of course, given that the Cherries had two men over on the Lilywhites for almost all of the second half.

Nevertheless, Fraser posted some eye-catching statistics.

No Premier League player supplied more crosses, successful crosses, key passes or “big chances” than the pint-sized winger in Gameweek 37.

Fraser’s individual total of ten successful crosses was more than any other Premier League side managed as a team at the weekend.

This wasn’t a freak occurrence that only owed to Spurs’ ill-discipline, however.

Fraser has delivered more crosses and successful crosses than any other midfielder this season, while his total of 28 big chances created is not only the best in the division but also hasn’t been bettered as far back as our records for that statistic go (eight years).

It is perhaps no surprise that Callum Wilson (£6.8m) was missing for large periods of Fraser’s aforementioned dry spell.

Wilson has supplied five assists for Fraser, while the Scotland international has created half of Wilson’s 14 goals.

The pair have proven deadly on the counter-attack in Bournemouth’s two most recent away fixtures at Brighton and Southampton, which saw the Cherries score on a combined eight occasions.

Eddie Howe’s side are again away in Gameweek 38, visiting a Palace side that have the second-worst home record in the division.

There is further encouragement for Fraser and his Fantasy owners in the form of the Eagles’ recent defensive statistics.

When clubs are filtered by their last six matches, no side has conceded as many headed chances as Palace – a possible good omen for Fraser’s assist potential given his dominance at dead-ball situations.

Roy Hodgson’s side also rank 17th for attempts from set plays conceded over this time, while no Premier League team has allowed more crosses.

The Team – Burnley

One of umpteen teams with effectively nothing to play for in Gameweek 38, Burnley take on Arsenal on the last day of 2018/19.

The Gunners’ recent away record (two wins from 12 league matches on the road) and their lack of clean sheets on their travels this season (their only shut-out being the 1-0 win over ten-man Watford in Gameweek 34) will no doubt be of interest to Fantasy managers looking for a final-day differential.

Only Huddersfield Town have allowed more big chances than Arsenal when clubs are filtered by their last six matches, while Cardiff City are the only team to have allowed more opportunities from set plays in this time.

No Premier League side has allowed more headed chances than Unai Emery’s troops over this period, with the Gunners also ranking joint-17th for shots on target conceded and joint-16th for attempts in the box conceded.

On top of this, Arsenal are in Europa League action in Spain less than 72 hours before they head to Turf Moor.

After the 1-1 draw with Brighton effectively ended their hopes of a top-four finish, Emery said the focus was now on the Europa League.

Those considering Chris Wood (£6.3m) or Ashley Barnes (£5.6m) will no doubt be encouraged by Arsenal’s vulnerability in the air and from dead-ball situations, something that may also benefit James Tarkowski (£4.7m) and Ben Mee (£4.6m).

Up until the special case that was the Gameweek 36 defeat to Manchester City, Burnley had scored in all 12 of their preceding dozen home league matches.

There wasn’t much to be positive about in the 2-0 defeat to Everton last Friday, however, with Burnley very much second best for most of the evening.

No side in the division had fewer attempts on goal, shots in the box or efforts on target than Burnley in Gameweek 37.

We ought to cut the Clarets some slack – Everton are one of the form teams in the top flight and have now kept eight clean sheets in the last ten Gameweeks.

Of more concern would be Sean Dyche’s decision to tinker with a hitherto settled side, with Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m) and Robbie Brady (£5.4m) getting rare run-outs on the flank.

Rotation is a widespread concern in Gameweek 38, with numerous dead rubbers up and down the country handing Premier League managers the chance to give starts to some of their long-suffering bench players.

Speaking of whom, Matej Vydra (£5.6m) has had to wait patiently as Wood and Barnes have started the last 18 league matches together up front.

Peter Crouch (£4.4m) is also now back to full fitness after appendix surgery.

Joint-club-record signing Ben Gibson (£4.8m), meanwhile, has made just one start at centre-half all season.

On the flip side, though, is the desire to finish the season on a high and reward a dedicated fanbase with a positive performance.

Dyche echoed those sentiments in quotes published in the Lancashire Telegraph on Wednesday, saying:

I don’t mean we weren’t up for it [v Everton], but that edge when there’s something riding on it, good or bad. You have to deliver and when it’s not there it’s a strange kind of feeling.

But we want to finish right against a good side in Arsenal, for the way we go about our business, and for the fans, who’ve been amazing.

It’s easy to support when things are going well. But we’ve had really good support even when things haven’t been going as well, the fans stuck with it, home and away, and it would be nice to take on a big side in Arsenal and give something to the fans.

Asked about the possibility of rotation, Dyche gave out mixed signals.

The Burnley boss said:

It depends because equally, the players who have been out there doing it will want to see the season out for their own needs.

Ben Mee, I thought was outstanding again tonight and he, in theory, could play every minute [of the season] next week which is an amazing achievement.

Corky I think did it last year and it is an amazing thing for a Premier League footballer.

It is not just about changing it, it is about the reward for the players that have played and finishing the season. Most players want to finish the season fit and well and performing.

The threat, no matter how small, of rotation in Gameweek 38 is something we can do without as Fantasy managers but Burnley and Arsenal’s underlying stats seem to be aligning nicely for the final-day encounter at Turf Moor.

The Discussion Point – What to do with Wolves assets in Gameweek 38?

Away at title-chasing Liverpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers have one of the toughest fixtures of Gameweek 38.

Owners of Wolves’ Fantasy assets, therefore, face something of a dilemma ahead of Sunday’s deadline, with many amongst us facing a ‘play, bench or sell’ conundrum going into this weekend’s match at Anfield.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were well-represented in the top 10k as of the Gameweek 37 deadline, as the below table (taken from Ragabolly’s livefpl site) shows:


Combination % owned by top 10k
Doherty, Jimenez and Jota26.63%
Jimenez and Doherty49.1%
Jimenez and Jota48.65%
Jota and Doherty28.1%

Diogo Jota (£6.3m) and Matt Doherty (£5.3m) each have ownerships of just over 50% in the top 10,000, with Raul Jimenez (£6.9m) owned by a whopping 93.82%.

There is certainly a movement towards selling in the wider FPL community: Doherty and Jimenez are the most-sold players of Gameweek 38 in their respective positions, with Jota the fourth-most-sold Fantasy midfielder.

Wolves come into Sunday’s game on the back of three successive wins, however, along with a track record for competing well against the ‘big six’ clubs.

The latest win for Santo’s side was a 1-0 victory over Fulham, which would have been more emphatic in nature had it not been for wayward finishing and some smart goalkeeping.

Jota’s owners, in particular, will wonder how he didn’t register an attacking return, with the Portuguese midfielder twice dragging inches wide and forcing Sergio Rico (£4.4m) into two excellent saves.

Jimenez frustrated for different reasons, registering only one shot in the box (compared to Jota’s five) and blanking for the third home fixture in a row.

Doherty, at least, registered his first double-digit return in a match since Gameweek 8.

Wolves’ overall record against the big six in the league is competitive, having won four of their 11 matches and only failed to score in two of them:


Played 11
Won4
Drawn4
Lost3
Clean sheets0
Didn’t score2

On top of this, Wolves have also beaten Manchester United and Liverpool at Molineux in the FA Cup.

Their record against the top half-dozen sides on the road is not bad either, with their only defeat being a 3-0 loss to Manchester City in which they played over 70 minutes with ten men:


Played5
Won1
Drawn3
Lost1
Clean sheets0
Didn’t score1

Three of the above matches were 1-1 draws, while they also dispatched Spurs 3-1 at Wembley.

This record might also be of interest to the many of us with Liverpool assets going into Gameweek 38, given that Spurs, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all failed to score more than once when facing Wolves on home soil.

Looking more closely at the three main players in the Wolves team – Doherty, Jimenez and Jota – against the big six leads to some interesting findings.

Overall, their records against the top half-dozen clubs in the league are:


PlayerAppsGoalsAssistsBlanksPoints per match
Jimenez114545.9
Jota8 (inc 1 sub)3144.5
Doherty111282.5

Away from home, this record reads:


PlayerAppsGoalsAssistsBlanksPoints per match
Jimenez52215.6
Jota4 (inc 1 sub)0132.5
Doherty50142.0

It is easy to see why Doherty is deemed surplus to requirements by many in Gameweek 38, without a league clean sheet against the big six all season and with only one attacking return in five away appearances against these clubs.

There has to be a disclaimer against Jota, though, with three of his four overall blanks against the big six coming before his conversion into a bona fide striker in Gameweek 15.

Since then, he averages 6.2 points per match against the top half-dozen clubs.

Jimenez meanwhile has only blanked once against a big six side on the road – that being the 3-0 defeat to City when his legs were preserved with a half-time substitution.

There are other factors in play here, of course, including Liverpool’s record of clean sheets at Anfield (11 in 18) and the fact that the Reds held Wolves to nil in the reverse fixture in December.

Jota and Jimenez sit second and eighth respectively among all players for xGI over the last five Gameweeks, though, shrugging off any talk of an FA Cup semi-final hangover.

As the stats in the above tables suggest, playing one of these two players at Anfield in Gameweek 38 mightn’t be the worst idea in the world – particularly if City swiftly race into a commanding lead at Brighton and extinguish a deflated (relatively speaking after the euphoria of Tuesday night) Liverpool’s chances of winning the league title.

    Kane not fit for a few weeks then.

    1. Syd.

      He’s got 3 and a half weeks to get fit

      Seemed to run on the pitch at the end pretty well to be fair. Amazing what a CL final does for bad ankles.

      1. how now brown cow

        1 month, 10 days ago

        Just did an interview. A while away apparently.

        1. Licky
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          It'll be difficult to build up match fitness, he'll probably push himself to make it.

          1. how now brown cow
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Winks maybe as important.

  2. Gudjohnsen
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    So who loses his place for Sir Harold in the final?

    1. Licky
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Dele?

      1. Slouch87
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Highly unlikely.

    2. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Tonight’s hero

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        That´s harsh on Moura though.

        1. Syd.
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          It is but he is the most likely one to make way

          It’s the same with Liverpool, Origi won’t start

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            But Moura is a much better player than Origi. Fat and technical and I´m a Pool fan.

            1. Gudjohnsen
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Sorry fast

    3. Hect.OR 98th
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No one. Not until he comes on as a sub.

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Trippier 😉

    5. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      LLoris

      Who needs a keeper when Harry can just outscore the opponent?

    The Champions League Trophy was in the foyer of the offices I was working in today.

    Relevant... Although that's about it...

      What colour ribbons?

      1. TRASH BOAT
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        There were some red and blue ones in a nearby bin

        1. Dthinger
          • 2 Years

          too soon

      2. Hazz

        1 month, 10 days ago

        Twas on a blue/purple plinth surrounded by red-tape stanchions...

  4. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Both punts any preference?

    A Jiménez to Rondon or Origi

    B Jota to Moura or Ginni

    Ps only got one free Pool spot.

    1. AndyCook
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Tottenhams team could be anything, I wouldn’t get Moura. Don’t like Wijnaldum or Origi which means Rondon

      1. TRASH BOAT
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah I have Moura and not sure if that’s good or bad

        1. AndyCook
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I’d be happy to have him, buying would depend on who else I could afford but he’s still a nice option!

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Cheers, could then keep a Jota & Deulofeu to Fraser?

        1. AndyCook
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Fraser I like but that raises the question of whether Jota is better than Deulofeu? I’m not sure there’s many fixtures that stand out this weekend for a punt but many can see goals in the Bournemouth game. Or maybe Southampton might get a few. Go Moura if you won’t be too angry if he gets a rest, I guess he should play there’s only one game left.

    2. JohnnyMagrinho
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Literally going for players who have just scored for their teams in the Champions League.

      Tomorrow night you'll be asking if we think you should bring in Iwobi after he scores in Spain.

      This place is going downhill. Standard of posts are shocking and have been for some time.

  5. pingissimus
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Just seen that Sarri thinks 2 or 3 of the Chelsea loan players look interesting. The other 42/3?

    Best penalty for them wouldn’t be a transfer ban (now confirmed) much better to force them to offload their stockpile.

    1. how now brown cow
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Can they sign higuain permanently?

      1. Licky
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Possibly, because they have his registration.

      2. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Probably because it was an agreement made before the decision to ban them was made although I'm not entirely sure.

        1. Forever In Our Shadow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          So to that guy from dortmund.

          1. how now brown cow

              Thats the one. Very defensive. 😉

      3. Would Ed Woodward

        They hope not.

    2. Wild Rover

      He’s full is crap, he has two very interesting youngsters already and likes to bench them

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        He's given more minutes to youth than most Abramovich-era managers.

  6. Wild Rover

    Sky must be feeling sick reporting on these CL games that they can’t show. Bid up you greedy b’stards next time

    1. TRASH BOAT
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Still have to subscribe. Should be terrestrial Crown Jewels like Wimbledon

      1. Game Over
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah but you need 2 subscriptions at the moment to get everything.

      2. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        True but most subscribe to Sky, it’s the extra £30 odd just for a few footy games on BT that people baulk at

        1. elchilangles
          1 month, 10 days ago

          you could just stream them all for free of course!

    2. Lord Tachanka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think you can get BT sport in a package for a lot less than adding Sky Sports though.

      And I’m not lining Murdochs pockets that way! F that zombie basket!

  7. Lord Tachanka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    One of Spurs or Liverpool will win the champions league this year!

    I think I can watch the final as a neutral and be happy no matter the result. It’s not going to one of the gruesome Iberian twosome and that makes me very happy!

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Will be two Prem teams in the Europa final too

      1. Smurf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Really hope so. Great for English football if it happens.

        1. All Out of Mounie
          • 1 Year

          How many English players will we see in the finals though?

  8. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    How long more was Kane expected to be in recovery from his ankle injury before tonight's game and is there a chance of Harry being match fit for the CL final?

    1. LǝgleSs e|even
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Both Kane and Salah will play the final

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      He´ll be ready but who loses his place.

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Lucas Moura maybe but who knows what Poch might try for the final.

        Maybe start with Moura and bring on Harry as a super sub even.

        1. Rotation's Alter Ego

          Good luck to Mauricio if he wants to try an bench Kane in a UCL Final 😉

          1. Ógie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Yeah he is stuck between a rock and a hard place with that choice.

            It would be also a tough ask to say to Moura that you are not starting after how he has picked up the mantle in Harry's absents.

    3. JohnnyMagrinho
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Dunno mate I'll just text Poch now for you. Shouldn't be too busy so I'll expect a reply within 5 to 10 mins.

      Watch this space.

    What a great night for English football. Just loving it that two Premier League teams have battled against the odds to reach the final. Bring it home!

  10. MeatPieSausageRoll

    I feel like there’s more than meets the eye with the whole Kane situation. I have a medical background and when he sprinted onto the pitch he looked OK - yet he’s talking about having a while to go to get fit??

    1. Gnu
      • 9 Years

      😆

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego

      • 7 Years

      He's doing rehab work, approaching on field rehab - I'd expect him to be able to run tbh.

      Then again, I don't have a medical background

      1. MeatPieSausageRoll

        I feel like its a cover up

          Get the tinfoil out 😉

    3. Gnu

      Bit limpy you think?

      1. MeatPieSausageRoll
        1 month, 10 days ago

        He wasnt though. Thats my issue. Maybe a falling out behind the scenes? Maybe a move on the cards? Could be an ideal replacement for Rashy!

        1. Gnu
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Did a bit of minor surgery myself back in the day and if he had walked into my tent I would have said deffo limpy, I may have gone onto amputate if he had problems jumping .
          Clearly limpy and not ready to stop playing at an elite club.

      OK mate. I'm surprised you weren't down there tonight seeing as you know what's going on.

      Funny how you're stuck at home scratching your balls posting on here when by the sounds of it you could offer some real insight.

      Baffling.

      Hoddle mentioned, that Kane is only running in straight lines at the moment and has yet to do the turns.

      I've got a bit of a medical background here myself, snagged a 51/100 pass mark in Anatomy101 first year uni.

      Anyway, all my training is leading me to the conclusion that you're delusional.

    Have triple spurs attack which has not been kind (son, nando, Erik). Currently selling Son, benching nando and playing Erik.

    Is this the right approach? No idea what poch will do.

    Moura or Pogba the better replacement for Son? Moura tempting after tonight but he may be rested

      Rest. The CL final is 4 weeks away.

          It’s a fair point but Spurs just don’t really have many more options.

        The Final? Liverpool with all my heart, bloody hate Liverpool but the thought of seeing Spurs win the UCL before Arsenal makes me sick! Ideal scenario is City win the League & Liverpool win the UCL

  14. dunas_dog

    Thinking Eriksen Son Jimenez to Salah (if fit) Redmond Wilson for -4 and this team (hit needed to afford Salah but if plays feel could haul). If Robbo not fit Doherty first on bench.

    Yes or No?

    Lloris
    TAA Yoshida Robertson
    Sterling Mané Salah (c) Redmond
    Aguero Long Wilson

    Foster Jota Doherty Duffy

    Should I:

    1. Doherty >> TAA (play instead of Son)
    2. Son >> Pogba / Fraser / Moura (play double SOT def)

        Joking aside, what a brilliant two days for Liverpool and Spurs and for the Prem in general. I expect it to get even better tomorrow and have both finals all Prem. as a neutral I'd rather have Prem v Europe but happy either way

    On FH and chasing 16 points. He doesn't have any chip left. Who to punt on
    1. Best keeper who is not Allison or Ederson
    2. I'll have Laporte and TAA (He has both), who should be my 3rd.
    3. My mids are and mane and sterling (He has both), I have Salah (and might captain), Redmond as a punt?
    4. Aguero for us both. Who other 2 to punt on? Currently on zaha+Rondon

      I honestly have no idea once Barca were knocked out in THAT game. I didn't mind who won.
      Now a loss seems unfair on Klopp especially if he does not win the league with 97 points. Losing key players. Also beating PSG and before that scrapping through the group stages of the CL.
      Two years in row he gets to the CL final.

      Tottenham the same it would be unfair on them to lose.
      Beating Man City, losing key players. Scrapping through the group stages. THAT Ajax game.

      I am just going to enjoy the final and hope there is no silly mistakes, only great play that wins it.

    On BT sport Ferdinand seemed genuinely worried about Hoddles heart, don't get too excited he said to him.
    ---------------------------------------------

    I thought that was a nice bit. (Even though I think Hoddle is a bit of knob at times.)

    If you were to start one from Kolasinac or Jimenez for the last GW which would u choose?

    1. Licky
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Jimmy.

    2. niallbonner

  23. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
    • 10 Years

    So what do we do with spurs players now.
    Trippier definitely rested nothing to play for in the league?

  24. FredrikH
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Firmino. Amy chace he'll play vs Wolves?

    1. FredrikH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Amy chace. 🙂
      Any chance.

    2. Licky
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I'm not sure now, I think Origi will start up top.

      1. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        you odn't think they will want to save Origi for the CL final?

        1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          😀
          That is actually a big call for Herr Klopp in all seriousness.
          Origi on a high or a half fit Firmino?

  25. FredrikH
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Son Firmino out Hazard Zaha in is one week late it seems..

    1. niallbonner
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      You never know last game of the season, but I think there’s better replacements out there, Redmond/ Fraser/ Arnie/ Wilson

  26. niallbonner
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Few questions:

    Best Son replacement under 8.9m (No city or Southampton players)
    What’s the story with Robbo will he be rested on Sunday?
    Should I play my 2 Southampton players?

    Thanks

      That means Milner on pens, takes away some of Salah's appeal.

      1. yakirh
        • 3 Years

        Salah chasing golden boot he might be on Pens anyway

          1 month, 10 days ago

          Good point.
          I feel if Klopp says Salah is fit he will be hard to not pick as captain - given everything that has happened in the CL.

          1. HMC
            • 8 Years

            I think salah playing helps Mane. He’s my captain this week (non salah owner)

  28. Chucky

    Son to Moura???

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Quick before he rises tonight

    2. kysersosa
      • 4 Years

      He may be playing yet as spurs have appealed his red card.

      1. MeatPieSausageRoll
        1 month, 10 days ago

        He won’t be playing. If theyve seriously appealed it then he’s only at risk of having games added to the ban for a frivolous appeal

  29. kysersosa
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Does anyone know when the decision for Son’s appeal will come out?

    1. MeatPieSausageRoll

      From an FPL perspective it matters not
