What Fantasy managers can expect from Southampton forward Che Adams

Southampton and Ralph Hasenhüttl have added to their attacking armoury ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League season with the signing of Che Adams (£6.0m) from Birmingham City for a reported £15m fee.

Adams, 22, scored 38 goals in 123 appearances across three seasons at St Andrew’s and was named in the Championship Team of the Season for 2018/19.

The Englishman will aim to provide additional goalscoring impetus to a Southampton side who scored just 1.18 goals per game in 2018/19, ranking 15th in the goals scored table.

Adams’ arrival at St Mary’s comes alongside the signing of Moussa Djenepo (£5.5m) from Standard Liege as well as the permanent capture of Danny Ings (£6.0m) from Liverpool, as the Saints bid to improve on their attacking options and mount a challenge for a top ten finish in Hasenhüttl’s first full season in charge on the south coast.

Southampton forwards have rarely proved to be reliable sources of FPL points in the last two seasons, with midfielders Nathan Redmond (£6.5m) and James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m) representing the Saints’ top-scoring players in 2018/19 with 137 and 94 points respectively. 

Yet if Adams is able to translate the form he has shown throughout the lower leagues of English football into performances in the Premier League with Southampton, then this could be a player firmly worthy of consideration in the opening Gameweeks of 2019/20.

Upon signing for Southampton, Adams said: 

I was watching them play when I was at Birmingham and I liked what Ralph did so I couldn’t say no.

You can see with the track history… the gaffer’s belief in the young players, I want to be part of it.

There was interest in January but it didn’t quite go through but I’m happy now it has.

Hasenhüttl also spoke enthusiastically after confirming the signing of Adams: 

He has shown a desire to join us above all other clubs, which shows the positive reputation Southampton has built for developing young players.

The History and Statistics 

Che Adams’ first professional senior goal came in a League Cup semi-final against Spurs in January 2015

Born in Leicester in July 1996, Adams’ rapid rise through the lower divisions of English football is testament to not only his unquestionable ability but a work ethic that will certainly have furthered Hasenhüttl’s interest in bringing the player to St Mary’s.

After spells at Oadby Town and Ilkeston before his 18th birthday, Adams earned his first major career move in 2014, after the eyes and ears of Sheffield United were alerted to an immensely promising player plying their trade in the seventh tier of English football. 

Under the management of Nigel Clough, the Blades gave Adams his initial opportunity in the English Football League (EFL), with a tepid first season ensuing – the striker made just 13 appearances across the 2014/15 campaign as he saw his minutes managed by Clough, scoring three goals in the process. 

The 2015/16 campaign proved to be Adams’ breakthrough year at Bramall Lane, with the striker netting on 11 occasions across 43 games and, in the process, attracting interest from the upper echelons of the EFL – notably Birmingham City and manager Gary Rowett.

Birmingham signed Adams for an undisclosed fee after being impressed by the striker’s performances for the Blades and his 15 goals in 55 appearances for the club. The Englishman had seemingly stepped up at every increased level of competition in his four full seasons as a professional, and Rowett placed his faith in Adams to deliver in the Championship. 

This faith was handsomely rewarded as Adams gradually grew into his role leading the line at St Andrew’s, increasing his goalscoring output in successive seasons before delivering an eye-catching, sensational campaign in 2018/19 in which he scored 22 goals in 46 league appearances.

This clinical goalscoring output from a 22-year-old English striker will naturally increase speculation of a potential transfer, but it is Southampton who have secured the services of this highly-rated prospect who will now bid to make yet another step up and deliver in the top-flight of English football.

The Prospects

Danny Ings is available for the same price as Che Adams in FPL this season

Southampton’s signing of Adams has understandably excited the club’s fanbase, and the anticipation surrounding the 22-year-old’s Premier League debut is far from unwarranted. 

The club has been crying out for a goalscoring number nine since the departure of Graziano Pelle in 2016, and in Adams, the Saints may have found a player capable of filling the attacking void vacated by the Italian following his transfer to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng.

Adams’ minutes-per-shot on target average was superior to any of Southampton’s attacking quartet from the 2018/19 campaign, whilst the striker also ranks top for minutes per key pass – underlining his potential for valuable assists in the spectrum of FPL points.

A total of 74 shots in the box throughout the 2018/19 season would have placed Adams joint-fifth in the Premier League standings from the previous campaign, level with Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) and above the likes of Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.5m).

The usual big disclaimer applies regarding these figures, of course, with Adams having registered them in the second tier with Birmingham.

The value that Adams could offer managers is evident from his final campaign with Birmingham, a team who didn’t feature in the Championship promotion picture (although a points deduction saw to that) and who scored just 64 times throughout the season, with Adams accounting for 34% of the team’s goals.

Yet central to determining the striker’s potential as a value-for-money £6.0m forward in Gameweek 1 squad for 2019/20 remain the questions over Southampton’s attacking abilities as a unit.

Shane Long (£5.0m) and Charlie Austin (£6.0m) have struggled for the Saints since arriving on the south coast, whilst injury in Ings’ first season at St Mary’s as a Liverpool loanee disrupted any potential for a consistent stream of minutes and form. 

The club tying down Ings on a permanent deal from Liverpool alongside the signing of Djenepo from Standard Liege is a clear indicator of their intentions for the upcoming campaign, and if Adams can play his part in this trident of new attacking signings then the Saints could be set for an impressive year in Hasenhüttl’s first full season in charge at St Mary’s. 

At a price of £6.0m, Adams (whose ownership is 1.6%) is placed alongside the likes of Glenn Murray (4.1%), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (4.8%) and teammate Ings (3.0%) who currently form the three most popular £6.0m strikers in the build-up to GW1.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is currently the most-owned FPL forward in the £5.5m-£6.0m bracket

This level of competition and comparison is important in determining if Adams is offering stronger value than his similarly priced counterparts, yet a decisive element in the striker’s effectiveness as a budget striker will lie in Hasenhüttl’s tactical and formation-based selections. 

The Austrian alternated between a 3-4-2-1 and 3-5-2 during the 2018/19 campaign, enabling a sense of defensive solidity whilst deploying differing attacking combinations dependent on the quality and calibre of opposition. 

If Hasenhüttl opts to regularly deploy the 3-4-2-1 formation this drastically reduces Adams’ potential for a regular berth in the Southampton starting XI, especially considering the club’s permanent signing of Ings from Liverpool. However, the Saints’ pre-season schedule commenced on Sunday with a 1-1 draw against SCR Altach in Austria, with Adams making his Southampton debut and scoring inside two minutes with a clinical low drive from 18 yards.

Hasenhüttl’s decision to deploy a 4-2-2-2 formation (his favoured system in Germany) in the club’s first game of pre-season could be indicative of the Austrian’s plans for the 2019/20 season. Adams’ impressive performance as part of a two-strong strike force will only strengthen his chances of starting for the Saints when they face Burnley on August 10th.

Adams’ total number of goals scored last year (22) surpassed the combined goalscoring output of Southampton’s four main attacking options (Long, Ings, Redmond and Austin) who scored 20 league goals between them, and it is evident that the Saints have signed a player with an eye for goal and who could fit seamlessly into Hasenhüttl’s attacking plans for the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Southampton’s opening five fixtures of the 2019/20 campaign present a dilemma for FPL managers who may be considering investing in their assets, with attractive games against Burnley, Brighton and Sheffield United juxtaposed against the visits of Manchester United and Liverpool to St Mary’s. 

In these games last year, excluding the fixture against newly-promoted Sheffield United, Southampton won a total of five points, having laboured to a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion whilst drawing 1-1 and 2-2 with Burnley and Manchester United respectively; the Saints also were defeated 3-1 by Liverpool in April. 

The fact that Hasenhüttl’s side scored in each of these games last season and will fancy their chances of doing so against newly-promoted Sheffield United is a promising omen for those considering investing in Southampton’s attacking assets, but selecting the most consistent forward around Adams’ price presents a difficult dilemma for managers.

Given the number of £6.0m strikers in 2019/20 – the most common price-tag for forwards in the game – investment in Adams would represent an unquestionable risk but a gamble that could pay rewarding dividends given the player’s initial pre-season form as well as three attractive fixtures in the Saints’ first five.

This may be a case of “wait and see” for sanctioning Adams’ inclusion in your squad for the initial stages of the 2019/20 campaign but the former Birmingham striker is worth monitoring at the very least – particularly for those Fantasy managers who are going light up front.

    Pretty sure I know what the popular answer will be after yesterday's friendlies but I'll ask anyway.

    A) Wilson + Perez
    B) King + Bernardo Silva

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Bernardo still a wait and see for me in FPL terms. If he gets more attacking freedom and subsequent returns with KDB back, he’s straight in my team though. I’ve been on King, but now more tempted by Wilson honestly. And if I go without Vardy I’ll be having Perez in my team I think

    pope
    robertson,stones,gomez,4.0,4.0
    salah,perez,fraser,siggy,4.5
    aguero,wilson,jota

    Any thoughts?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Not clear if stones will start. More chance of Zinchenko doing so, who is the same price. Gomez pick could be shrewd tbh. Not tempted by TAA over Robbo? Pains me to say it as I love the scot but Trent has set pieces too. Team otherwise actually looks very strong. Not sure on jota yet given they have EL and wolves squad isn’t very deep. Could you have a fiddle around to get kdb somehow by downgrading jota? Idk

      1. mental
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        i think stones will be a regular beside laporte and still not decided really between robbo and TAA. As for kdb i really want to see some form and then i will def consider him. Thanks

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      I like that one-at-the-back. It's a novel approach.

      1. mental
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        i am surprised people ignoring stones and gomez really, i think they will be regular starters or at least it’s worth it for the price. Cheers

    3. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Stones is risky. And i dislike 2 4.0 defs. If someone misses out, you are fielding 10

  3. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Keep coming back to Vardy in my team. Is it that bad an idea? I keep trying to stick Perez in a midfield spot to try and justify going w/o the party-man but it doesn’t feel right.

    Make a case for or against Vardy (obviously the hard thing is fitting him alongside Sterling and Salah without too much compromise elsewhere )

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Have Vardy. Looks like he'll get the service he'll thrive off. Get Perez too.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Cheers. If there’s any indication Perez will play up top with Vardy it’s likely he’s straight in my team.

        Thoughts on Wilson vs king?

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I'm on Vardy too.
      Vardy + King for me instead of Wilson + Perez if that's the choice

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah. Could also have Perez Vardy King or Fraser Vardy King.

        Trying to find a way to fit a Vardy Wilson frontline with Salah and Sterling, but it’s a bit tricky

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Won't be happening imo (last call) unless we get 1/2 4.5m nailed players

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            I’ve got one, just the midfield is a bit dead otherwise. The 1.5 saved on king over Wilson can go a fair ways 🙁

            Pope (4.0)
            TAA VVD Coleman Zinchenko (4.0)
            Salah Sterling Yarmolenko 6.5 (4.5)
            Vardy Wilson (Greenwood)

            Obviously assumed Yarmo starts. 6.5 can be any

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 24 days ago

              Nice team
              Zenchinko could be awesome at 5.5

            2. No Professionals
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 24 days ago

              Without sigurdsson, I feel digne is a must have at only 0.5 more than Coleman. Although 0.5 is so hard to find this year.

    3. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I'm stuck between vardy and king versus Wilson and Perez.

  4. Srv210
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Does this look any good??

    Ryan / Button
    TAA / Laporte / Digne / aarons / stearman
    Salah / Sterling / Trossard / Tielemans / Dendonker
    Kane / King / Greenwood

    any suggestions??

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Can’t say I’ve heard of Trossard. Where does he play? Can you stretch to gross?

      As I’ve said above, monitor where Perez May play as potentially COULD start fairly advanced in which case I’d want him over Tielemans I think. Good otherwise and a bit diff

      1. Srv210
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        trossard is a winger as far as i know ,and i read about the new brighton coach being attack minded ...but yeah this is not final i'll be tinkering till the end..thanks for perez suggestion

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      How many of last two Defenders you'd play every week ??

      1. Srv210
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        i hope i dont have to play them much..here and there few games maybe

  5. Sahil.....
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Is it good ?
    Pope ryan
    Taa laporte digne (diop kelly )
    Salah kdb siggy zaha tielemans
    Wilson giroud(greenwood)
    If haller is for 7.0 i might swap him for giroud..

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I’d go w just one of the keepers, as I like to just set and forget personally. Whoever is burnley first choice is in for me rn.

      Team looks very good honestly. Obvious thing I’d be worried about is no sterling but it does look strong. Not sure on zaha given late return from again though. Maybe gross instead?

      And finally the last part would be a good move imo

    2. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 3 Years

    Fingers and toes crossed that Haller can come in at 6.5m... would maybe still go for it (or maybe wait til after city tbh) at 7.0, but 6.5 would be awesome for that talent

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Is he a great Striker ??
      Seen a lot of Haller comments. Can be replacement for King/Deulofeu after 2/3 gw's 😮

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        15 goals and 9 assists last year in Bundesliga. But he had Jovic next to him.

        He’ll now have Andy Carroll...

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Ha ha
          Nice. Thank you for information

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Seems to be a v promising player.

        https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.hammers.news/analysis/statistics-prove-sebastien-haller-will-make-west-ham-a-force-in-the-premier-league/amp/

        Maybe as you say to start with King/Deulofeu and then go with Haller if he’s popping off

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Yeah
          It looks safe to see him get used to PL (which is a f.... Difficult thing tbh 😀 )

    2. Srv210
      • 2 Years

      from what I have seen of him...he looks promising

  7. SILENTWAR

    Doubling Fraser + Wilson. What do you think?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I’m struggling to convince myself to spend the extra 1.5 on Wilson over King. It can go a long way elsewhere in my team..... 🙁 current draft has king and Fraser though, if only as placeholders for first two GWs

    2. Sailboats

      • 4 Years

      I think its ok as long as you have the other essentials like salah and sterling. I have Wilson and King in my team, would like fraser (instead of king) but im 0.5m short

      Looks good.

      I'd prefer Wilson over King. Fund it by Fraser to Brooks, Robbo to VVD

        Thanks mate!

        Even I would prefer Wilson. But wouldnt you prefer Robbo over VVD and Fraser over Brooks?

        1. Chelsea91

          TAA is really important for set piece and VVD is important player also, if you need two liv player are TAA and VVD.

          Robbo and Fraser are fine. I'd worry about the bench and want another playing sub. Shave 0.5 off Digne > Coleman if you don't want to lose Robbo. Kelly to a 4.5 or Wickham > Androne would be better.

            Yes I agree bench is worry but it feels so wrong having to downgrade Robbo/Digne to VVD/Coleman just to strengthen the bench. I feel I could get 1-2 pointers from my bench.

            I like Fraser's price & fixtures alot. Very easy to jump on a Leicester/Chelsea mid after the first 2 gameweeks.

              Donkers will get you 1 or 2 points, but if you need 2 subs, the others probably won't play. Still, go with your gut.

          I'm actually not sure on VVD v Robbo. I think they're on par, so I'd take the cheaper. Fraser yes, but I think Wilson eclipses King by enough to justify it. FWIW I have a similar set of decisions to make. Could go either way really

      Well I like it. I'd prefer a third Citizen - maybe Ederson and Walker could sort it.

      1. Chelsea91

        Will monitor on Walker , for now Loris and Laporte is confirmly starter.

    Lloris (McGovern)

    VVD / TAA / Zinchenko / Walker-Peters (Kelly)

    Sigurdsson / Salah / KDB / Perez (Dendonker)

    Calvert-Lewin / Kane (Greenwood)

    Final draft until August when things clear up. Pretty certain Trippier is out, Aurier injured and Foyth suspended, so Walker-Peters is my punt. Do not know much about Calvert-Lewin and Everton's transfer plans, whats the chances he is leading the attack? Praying Perez is a second striker to Vardy. Zinchenko is under a microscope with Mendy lurking about.

      Interesting. I like it

      Personally I’d go Fraser over Siggy and get a forward more likely to hit the back of the net.

      Agree that early on Spurs could be a great call. Suspect that a few are put off by that first fixture alone. That said I’m unconvinced yet by KWP and I think a playing sub is needed to cover.

      I’m looking at something similar but with Sterling over Mo early on.

      1. Sugar Kane
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Yea DCL is my weak point definitely, maybe Che Adams instead? Will keep an eye on him pre-season

  23. ZeBestee
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Morning folks,

    Will you start with both Wilson and King as your 2 forwards or punt on Deulofeu/Jota for King?

    1. Skloppy Kops
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Personally I don't see why people are getting King!
      He's been awful at times and never a great finisher for me. More so, if Wilson is playing up front..
      Still baffle me to see why so many people are getting him in.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        I think King is decent for the price, could have been a no go if he was Wilson's price though. Wilson and King will share points and there will be games where King will emerge at the top with the kind of attacking football they play. The only issue here is doubling up worth it? And if I choose 1 of the 2, then it will definitely be Wilson.

      1. Chelsea91
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Yes they bought good defender Tanguy Ndombele

        1. Skloppy Kops
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Ndombele defender?!
          You must be kidding, he is an attacking midfielder.

          1. Chelsea91
            • 1 Year

            Opps yes , but i can see the spurs run is good.

  25. Skloppy Kops

    8 months, 24 days ago

    Just 1 question, think I am missing something here.
    Why are people getting Pope? Is he the n°1?

    I thought it was Heatons's place to lose, and priced similarly. Why Pope?

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Heaton on his way out it seems.

      If Heaton stays, could be either, but I'd still tip Pope to get the nod
