Bournemouth attack appeals but defence remains suspect

With Bournemouth sitting third in our Season Ticker for the first ten Gameweeks of 2019/20 and meeting only two of the ‘big six’ in that time, there will be plenty of interest in their Fantasy assets from the off.

Despite £2.0m price hikes, Ryan Fraser (£7.5m) and Callum Wilson (£8.0m) currently sit in more than one in five Fantasy Premier League squads – although the ‘auto-pick’ selections will be skewing Wilson’s figure slightly.

Joshua King‘s (£6.5m) ownership is also in excess of 20% at the time of writing.

We have already taken an in-depth look at King and Wilson in a Members’ article, which examines the pair’s attacking credentials in a direct head-to-head comparison.

This Numbers Game piece will explore Bournemouth’s wider attacking threat but also analyse their defensive numbers from 2018/19.

Nathan Ake (£5.0m) is, perhaps surprisingly given the Cherries’ well-documented problems at the back, currently the most popular FPL defender in the £4.5m-£5.0m bracket, having been drafted in by over 16% of FPL bosses.

    after much initial tinkering... grateful for any thoughts / suggestions....

    Heaton (or Pope)
    Robbo / Laporte / Coleman
    Salah / Bilva / Zaha / Fraser / Perez (or Tielmans)
    Vardy / King

    Suns: Ryan / Cathcart / El Mo / Calvert-Lewin

        Too much ££ on the bench !
        You can shave off money from bench & replace Bilva Zaha to something like Sterling 5.5m Midfielder which gives you another © option

          thanks - you feel Sterling is a must have..?

              Nope
              But it's better to have money (most of) in the starting 11 imo. Can go for Kun/Kane too

            Agreed. You need one other solid captain option.

            Too much on the bench??? Those are 4 super cheap players. All 15 of your players should start for their respective clubs. I don't see anyone you can downgrade to that fits that description. You have a good team.

                  Mane could miss first game with playing in afcon.. could be a risky Captain.. Can see Origi starting against Norwich

                      would take Fraser over Zaha if you have spare 0.5m and don't like Deu personally so would change him

                      1. Chelsea91
                          9 days, 8 hours ago

                          Zaha or Milli, fraser i think not interested because having King. Deu because attacking points.

                          1. Lord Tachanka

                            9 days, 7 hours ago

                            Deu got 140 total points as a mid. Drop that by about 20 as now a striker and he is not going to get many points. Could also be dropped at any point as Watford have options.

                                So jota is good option?

                                In fairness, Deu only played 2064 minutes. 10 goals and 5 assists isn't bad.

                          Mane unlikely to start the season due to AFCON.

                        Fraser or Wilson won't start the season at Bournemouth I think one maybe both will be moving on

                            Manager reported today as saying he's prepared to let Fraser go on a free in 12 months, and Wilson said to be signing contract extension.

                            1. Thescaff
                                9 days, 7 hours ago

                                This. Such nonsense spouted

                              Wilson due to sign a new deal. Fraser maybe but can’t see it.

                              1. Andy_Social

                                9 days, 5 hours ago

                                Howe just said if Fraser won't renew he'll allow him to run down the contract and leave on a free in a year. Neither of them are going anywhere at this time.

                            3. Vasqujg
                                9 days, 7 hours ago

                                Fraser and Zaha have Arsenal rumors, but Arsenal has no money to buy quality like this

                                If they did become arsenal players, Emery would just bench them randomly week by week- so worthless for FPL purposes

                              Right. Who is being overlooked in template teams so far? And who is overrated in template teams so far?

                                For a start, I don't understand the love for Zaha at 7.0

                                1. Thescaff
                                    9 days, 7 hours ago

                                    Vs Richy at 8m, I know who I'd rather have

                                  Not sure about the cheap forward lines with the likes of Jota/King/Delo - they could all flop, badly

                                      Would be covered by Defense + Mo Raz though 😉
                                      I actually like cheap attacking duo alongside Vardy

                                      Agreed. With two cheap at the top you have a very strong mid and defence but I feel you need that premium price point up top incase Kun/Auba/Kane start banging. That's why I am starting with Vardy so I can make the change in 2 moves if necessary

                                            9 days, 2 hours ago

                                            I think him not being an FPL asset gets over-stated a bit, he has reasonable returns and though not a given, there is definitely the potential for much bigger returns. Bit of a punt but could be gold.

                                          Not been on here much but how is zaha overrated? He’s getting better and better every season and got double digit goals and assists last season plus is now classed as a mid. 7m looks good value to me. Firmino had similar output 2seasons ago as a mid (11g 11a) and was reclassified as a forward at 9.5m

                                            Agree. A steal at 7m. Even so, can't fit him into current draft. Wait and see for me.

                                            His season was turned around by Bats arriving. Prior to that he was almost exactly level with Townsend. He could do the same again but he doesn't look like consistent points if he has no big hitter up top. He tends to take on everything himself and gets triple marked,

                                            I’m with you here, think Zaha is a great option at 7.0. The only doubt I have is where he’ll be playing.

                                          Overlooked Fab - he offers the same value as Ederson and will get 140 points and save you a million that can make a serious difference elsewhere.

                                              140 points without pens and cs hmmmm

                                              I look at it this way. He's already hit cs bottom and the only way is up. I'd have WH as one side where general defensive returns could well improve (a bit).

                                              My other non Ederson choice is Lloris. He also is a save king and likewise Spurs could well add more cs but start from a higher base.

                                                same here, my choices:
                                                Pope 4.5
                                                Fab 5.0
                                                Lloris 5.5
                                                Ederson 6.0

                                                Yeah but he got a few PS I think. I'm considering Kepa if not Ederson

                                                  Kepa also a good one. I went for Lloris at 5.5 spot because I already have Azpi as a sure starter in my team

                                                They've got a manager who only wants to attack and haven't improved any of their defensive assets. Don't see them improving much.

                                              B is not an option for me because Begovic has 2 keepers to threaten his position in the team. Better go 4.0 Button & upgrade (?) Grealish by 0.5 if that lands you on a better player

                                                Classic WB vs CB then.
                                                I'm always on WB/FB side.
                                                A for me. Mendy cementing his position in the 11 would give you (us) a better outlet of 6m Man City FB with serious attacking threat too

                                                  TAA is in the equation too but Joe Gomez like I said earlier can play throughout a backline only Van Dijk is safe in my eyes.

                                                    Not bad at all.
                                                    I think if it were not for the week 1 fixtures against the Manchester clubs there would be a lot more Che and hammers players in all our teams.
                                                    But then there is the tempatation of a Spurs asset instead with that GW1 fixtures
                                                    Finding the balance between starting well but avoiding too many transfers GW2 or GW3 is where I am at.

                                                      3 teams for me to look at during pre-season

                                                      Problem with Hammers is midfield churn. He switched enough last time with fewer options, Their defence is less tasty and they don't have an attack.

                                                      That goalie though!

                                                    I have a similar version but I take a mill out of defence and upgrade Yarm - who is a strong rotation risk and get Fab

                                                    Pereya (very overlooked imo) over yarm for same price

                                                  Kante playing deep this season will see a tighter Chelsea so more cleans this season so I makes kepa or Chelsea back 4 more attractive to me than last season

                                                      I've got Christensen in my draft, hoping he'll fill in for Rutiger while Zouma goes to Everton. Fingers crossed.

                                                      still want to see how attacking Chelsea will play regarding fullback, but think you're right

                                                      Same could maybe be said about Spurs defense with addition of Ndombele?

                                                        In a different sense, yes.
                                                        Reading the FFS article on Frank, it seems he was too gung-ho with the Derby defence, sending his fullbacks bombing on and leaving gaps at the back. Possibly gold for Alonso if he plays the same. But of course he didn't have a Kante screening the defence so maybe they will be fine.

                                                        It will mean Kante won't score the FPL points of last year, but he could add considerable value to the Chelsea defence.
                                                        Could say the same of Ndombele to the Spuds defence, but Poch rotates his defence a lot so I wouldn't invest in any other than perhaps Lloris.

                                                          agreed...for some reason Spurs fullbacks are rotated much more than at other (big) clubs, so Lloris looks like the go to option there.

                                                    Be funny if Kane and Aubameyang smash it GW1 don't see them in many teams

                                                      I agree. Feel like going ultra cheap in the fwd bracket is going to cost a few.

                                                        Not if you own them at the expense of Salah and Sterling

                                                    There are lots of if but and maybes here but Martial with a decent pre season and run in the team could be a steal at 7.5
                                                    Last two seasond goals and assists numberd for the minutes he has played is really good.
                                                    Anyone agree or more likely he is gone before the season starts?

                                                        He's a wait and see for me. One doesn't pick injury prone or non starters

                                                          Yeah I would like Little Pea too from GW2 but can't in a 451 formation that's for sure.

                                                            surely he won't be a starter?
                                                            So many rumours about buying a new striker

                                                      Vardy. Worth getting him with a team with Sterling/Salah, or kills the budget too much?

                                                        If you set up well (like I have!) you can great a great squad with all 3. Can only afford 2 up top, mind.

                                                        Simple to do.

                                                        Problem is moving off him if he doesn't work out. Most will be blocked for Firmino and that leaves Laca or Wilson as a striker who'll score points.

                                                          Or you can upgrade to Auba/Kane etc. If you start with all budget options up top it’s likely to end in years when a premium begins to haul

                                                            You can of course but upgrades look tougher as you need 2 mill. That would mean for example moving from Laporte to 4,5 with a minus 4.

                                                            Agreed. I'm most definitely going with a premium - think lots on here are fooling themselves. Saw very few teams last time out go without a premium consistently - the same data as available then.

                                                        Easy to do with a decent balance I'd say. I even threw 3 big defenders into the mix

                                                          I don’t think it’s balanced myself

                                                        I think it is worth. Also allows a switch to Kane/Auba if necessary

                                                      Is there such a thing as a (even close to) nailed on 5m striker?

                                                        Long probably the best option.

                                                          Yeah was thinking Andone (BHA) and Long but theyve got about a dozen strikers

                                                            think Andone is your best chance indeed

                                                        Or a 5.5m striker?

                                                          Norwood could take pens

                                                            I look at the info for the teams in pre season page

                                                        Keeping an eye on Wickham. Not saying hes nailed but if he stays first could be a good 4.5 option

                                                      Vardy King (Greenwood)

                                                      *likely to be Maguire if moves to either Manchester club.

                                                      I’d like some more Liverpool but don’t know where/how...

                                                        Nice.

                                                        Not convinced by a Leicester double up with those fixtures, Vardy for sure. That said I don't like the look of any 7 and under mid.

                                                        Ryan - I'm deeply sceptical.

                                                          Ryan is iffy/ but is there a better option when you want a rotation involving Burnley at the back?

                                                            Maybe not. Gunn? But I'm not much keener on Soton defence until we've seen how the 4-2-2-2 works

                                                            I'm not a rotation fan with keepers. I'm likely to set and forget Fab. Lots are waiting on SU but there I'm actively considering a 4.5 defender.

                                                        I'd think so at that cash.

                                                        Yep, should go straight into the 11 ahead of Neil Taylor.

                                                        If you're going this way then surely it needs to be Fraser Wilson?

                                                            if he looks 100% fit during preseason, could go Zaha > Yarmolenko

                                                        pre-season is getting underway now...quite a few team playing the next couple of days, so we'll see some adjusted RMT's 🙂

                                                        some more transfers will happen I reckon (Arsenal, ManUtd?) and players like Abraham, Batshuayi etc will be added to FPL

                                                        plenty to do 🙂

                                                        You mean the same pool of 20 players in everyone’s RMT (mine included) since the game launched? Maybe Perez as the only mover.

                                                            Drop DCL and get Coleman instead

                                                              DCL could be gold but he wasn't exactly last time out and triple Everton is OTT.

                                                              If you liked Fab last time out (most did after all) he buys you a forward or Fraser over Brooks.

                                                              Nice team.

                                                            Any thoughts guys? Thanks in advance

                                                              Allison to a 4.5/5.0 and upgrade AWB to Robertson or TAA. Like the Aguero pick, makes a change from Sterling in 90% of teams.

                                                            Accrington Stanley beat French Giants Marseille 2-1, with the French outfit featuring stars like Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin.

                                                            This is shades of my Accrington Stanley FM season a few years back haha.

                                                            Both have Salah & Kane

                                                                Prefer that team with Kun over Sterling in weeks 1 and 2 anyway. That way you can move from A to B in 2 weeks or for a minus 4

                                                              Anyone looking at SHU assets? Like the look of O’connell & McGoldrick if they don’t sign a striker

                                                              Chelsea's hot+cold fixtures could make Zappacosta (4.5) the ideal rotation candidate. Rotation with Burnley's Taylor gives these fixtures.

                                                              Then again, Lampard could be giving us false hope of a £4.5m starting defender ><
