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.

      I would be tempted to do 1. 5 assists in his last 5, if he gets another and a clean sheet that is a huge score

        Pogba scoring + 3 bps then. 😉

        1. Lazaretti
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Imo Pogba will score either 2 pts or below (even -points) or double figures.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah.
            Why is he playing CDM only god knows. Waste of everything tbh.

            1. Lazaretti
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              Maybe Ole Gunnar thinks that Pogba can dictate the tempo from the CDM position.

                Sad state of mind as a United fan.

    What are people doing with Firmino?
    Would you prioritize transferring him out over bringing a Man Utd defender?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Why would you bring Man United Defender ??
      Bobby to Vardy/Arnie/Zaha/Mitrovic looks good to me.

      1. SomeoneKnows
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Reply fail 🙁

        Because they are playing relegated Cardiff at home. Despite being rubbish lately I do think they'll earn a clean sheet

        I'm considering the following moves:
        A) Doherty + Son > Lindelof + Fraser
        B) Firmino + Son > Vardy + Fraser
        C) Firmino + Son > Long + Salah

        * Will be captaining Aguero even if I bring Salah, and no hits are required

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 13 days ago

          I don't trust our Defense anymore !
          From those moves, I'd do B.
          I'm also doing similar moves so maybe biased 😉

    2. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Agree with Amey, I don't think a United defender is worth bringing in. Firmino to Vardy/Arnie/Wilson

    3. Lazaretti
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      I would just swap Firmino to Rondon / Arnie / Wilson depends who you already have.

    4. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Getting him the hell out of my team for a hit. I know taking a hit in 38 is frowned on, but it makes no sense to me to have an inactive circa 9M forward on the bench (either him or Son) and be forced into fielding double Wolves attack away to Pool or double Saints defence.

  8. wernerhedgehog
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Should we consider Callum Wilson for this GW?

    The article above highlights Fraser vs a woeful Palace set piece record. But Crystal Palace are even worse at another aspect - counter attacks. 20th in conceding from counters. Bournemouth are 19th tbf but they're playing away.

    Wilson has scored 15+ points in the last 2 away games. And STILL underperforming xG apparently. Palace still has their both 1st choice CBs out.

    1. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      He's one of a few that I'm considering for this GW. If I'm transferring in a player just for 1 game I want it to be someone explosive who could haul and Wilson fits that category

    2. Hart-ake
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      yep, already got Wilson and v happy with that- considering a double up with Fraser.

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Def B if you don’t have Wilson

    2. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      C. If you can bring in Salah for no hits I would 100% do that (assuming he is confirmed fit)

    1. Amey

      Redmond for me

    2. Legend of Rosický

      Unbelievable position to be in

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year

        you probably mean transfer in one of them?

          Yes for replacing Son

    GTG for final week lads?

    Leno - (Foster)

  15. Legend of Rosický
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 13 days ago

    robbo > TAA (-4) or start Valery (HUD), Doherty (liv) and Cathcart (WHU)?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Valery

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        No i mean i would have to start all 3. Or i can get TAA and start 2 of them, Valery and Cathcart/Doherty

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          It's a tough one mate. TAA would need to get more than 6 points to make it worth it but there's every chance he does that the way he has been playing.

          1. Legend of Rosický
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah, Who would you bench? Doc or Cathcart?

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Valery

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        My bad, i shoud have framed it better. I meant get TAA and play 2 of them, or play a back 3 with Valery, Doherty and Cathcart.

    3. Hart-ake
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      I would take the hit for TAA or Laporte as they both have a potential big score in them. Defence is a bit weak otherwise (bench Doc).

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Thanks. Considering the same, TAA will be the chief assister with robbo out

    Just watched the second half on my lunch break, exciting stuff!
    Moura was so quick and clever for his goals and Lloris made a couple of important saves when it mattered. Sissoko has come on leaps and bounds this season, turning into a bit of a beast!
    Seeing Poch at the end so emotional with the staff and squad almost brought a tear to my eye, they seem such a close knit group, possibly not making any signings in recent windows has helped them in a way...well played!

    1. Hart-ake
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      yeah, absolutely it has helped in many ways!

            He likey said that thinking they had no chance of winning it haha, dont see him leaving unless he has a big issue with Levy going forward. Knew he was good but he's proving himself to be a great manager this season!

              I'm loving the PL teams dominating the Europe but would be lying if I said I'm not jealous 😕
              What the hell has happened to our loved United.
              Hopefully a good summer transfer window would help

                Turns my stomach that our club is being mismanaged into the ground. Worth listening to Gary Neville at the end of Monday night football this week as he gave a proper rant with some worrying insight into whats happening at the club!

    Who to play?

    A: JWP, Fraser & Wilson

    B: B. Silva, Jota & Wilson

    Cheers:)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      A

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      A definitely

  19. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Who scores most out of:

    A) Wilson (cpa)
    B) Redmond (HUD)

    1. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      A

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Tough to call these over 1 gameweek.
      So I'd probably go with the midfielder playing at home against the worst team in the league.

    3. Amey

      I have to back B 😛

    Also, is Robertson to Laporte worth a -4 if the former is out or just play Doherty?

    A) Doherty (liv)
    B) Laporte (bha) -4

    1. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Play Robertson, Doherty first on bench

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        This

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        On the off chance Klopp gives us a proper in/out on Robertson in the presser.

          As a Firmino owner, good luck with that.

    Chopping and changing and unsure what to do really with my 2FTs, but how does this look?
    Would you go Rashford or Arnie?
    Alternative ideas welcome?
    Cheers

    Lloris
    TAA / Luiz / Laporte
    Sterling / Mane / Pogba / Moura
    Aguero / Vardy / Rashford(Arnie)

    Robbo + Son + DCL to Laporte + Moura + Rashford (-4)

      Arnie instead of Rashford & deal 😉

          We're pathetic atm to say the least.
          I'd back Arnie in this one

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      West ham game looks full of goals so arnie could be a good punt!

        Ha ha
        Thank you. I'm 99% set on Redmond ©.
        Only choice is between Mane Vardy Pogba Wilson (all for -4) or just play Jota
        Absolutely torn between these options

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Pogba hattie incoming and you know it 😉

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 13 days ago

            😀
            You'd suggest to get Pogba ahead of Mane & Vardy ??
            I'm confused & need advice.
            I'm so confused that i want Son ban uplifted so that i can do Jota to Redmond & RIP 😀

            1. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              Nah, Mane is the far better pick but Pogba did hit the post twice at Hud

              1. Amey
                • 1 Year
                5 months, 13 days ago

                Yeah.
                I have a sneaky feeling that OGS is going to rotate heavily for last game. That's why I'm bit circumspect about Pogba/Rashford + form isn't with us.
                Mane home form awesome too.
                Hmmmm. Maybe I'm Overthinking. A/C then.
                C most probably
                Cheers mate

    1. as33
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Fraser, Redmond, Mili

  25. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Is this just about the weirdest PL record?

    1 Palace are top 6 away
    2 They have (I believe) the worst home points haul ever for a non- relegated team
    3 They are also top 6 defensively at home for goals conceded

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Yep
      Maybe the fans aren't that useful for the eagles 😮

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 13 days ago

        But it’s the goals conceded to points tally that is plain weird.

        It points up how bad the attack has been at home. Why? Not sure counter attacking style explains that as they’ve played that way ever since.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 13 days ago

          I have never seen this before.

        2. The Rumour Mill
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          They've underperformed their expected goals scored at home by over 11 goals. So theyre creating the chances, its just wasteful finishing really! Benteke missed a fair few good chances but Zaha and Townsend have missed some absolute sitters! I expect next season it will be a bit more normal.

      time to look at other teams as well 😉

    Son and Firm to Fraser and Wilson? Last roll of the dice. Team is linked, thanks.

    Son and Llorente to Redmond and Wilson?

    City clean sheet almost a lock so:
    A. Robertson to Laporte (-4)
    B. Bednarek autosub for Robbo

    1. pingissimus

      B

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…

    Wonder who those players are?

    1. Monklane
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Bryan Robson?

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Nice

    3. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      hopefully one of them is Pogba

  30. Good Kompany
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 13 days ago

    How’s this looking?

    Lloris
    TAA Laporte Shaw Valery
    Salah Mane Sterling
    Aguero Wilson Long

    Subs: Foster JWP Doherty Camarasa

    I’m going to have a player that’s capable of scoring more than 2pts on my bench but is JWP the least likely on current form?
