Scout Notes

Jimenez’s fine FPL form backed up by strong underlying stats

Bournemouth 1-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Steve Cook (£5.0m) | Joao Moutinho (£5.3m), Raul Jimenez (£7.4m)
  • Assists: Ryan Fraser (£7.0m) | Diogo Jota (£6.1m), Adama Traore (£5.2m)
  • Bonus: Moutinho x3, S. Cook x2, Jimenez x1

Wolves moved up to fifth in the league with a hard-fought win over ten-man Bournemouth.

The victory was secured by the match’s most popular player in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), the 15.3%-owned Raul Jimenez (£7.4m).

The Mexico international scored for the third straight Gameweek – and for the fourth time in his last five starts – when he sweetly finished an Adama Traore (£5.2m) cross from close range.

That doubled the lead given to Wolves by Joao Moutinho‘s (£5.3m) free-kick, a cross-cum-shot from an angle on the left flank, awarded following a foul on Diogo Jota (£6.1m) by Simon Francis (£4.4m).

The defender, making his first start since Boxing Day last year, was booked for the offence and lasted a mere 16 minutes more before getting a second yellow card.

Two goals, and one man, down, Bournemouth refused to capitulate.

Instead, they produced a stirring second-half display during which Steve Cook (£5.0m) reduced the deficit with a header from Ryan Fraser‘s (£7.0m) corner and Nathan Ake (£5.1m) came close to earning an unlikely point.

That again underlined Wolves’ defensive shortcomings.

A side unbeaten since Gameweek 5 has kept only three clean sheets all season and none for five straight matches now – a run that has left goalkeeper Rui Patricio‘s (£5.2m) 12.2% ownership living off scraps and kept interest in other members of that backline to a bare minimum.

Purchases are unlikely to increase any time soon. Next up is a tough home match with away day kings Sheffield United and, after rather more palatable fixtures involving West Ham and Brighton, Wolves will have to face Spurs, Manchester City and Liverpool during the busy festive period.

That could finally wear down the otherwise astonishing Jimenez.

The striker has now featured in 23 games for Wolves this season, 21 of which have been as a starter, and that doesn’t even factor in his trips back to Mexico for international duty – a workload that would make even Prince Andrew break into a sweat.

For context, the forward directly ahead of him in FPL’s standings, Sergio Aguero (£11.9m), has played just 16 times, four of which have been as a substitute.

Jimenez has been the gift that keeps on giving for manager Nuno Espirito Santo. Christmas, ironically, might well be the time when something has to give.

His ownership is now back past the million mark for the first time since Gameweek 4 and is on the rise again ahead of that Sheffield United fixture, with Jimenez currently the third most popular acquisition for Gameweek 14. When it comes to giving him a much-needed rest, who blinks first out of Nuno and his Fantasy counterparts could be an important moment in many an FPL season.

Pinpointing consistent scorers among Wolves’ other attackers is a trickier proposition.

Jimenez is a full 17 points clear of the team’s next-best performer (Patricio, on 51 points), with Traore, the closest outfield player, a full 20 points off the pace.

The improving winger did at least provide a second straight assist on Saturday, and he earned plenty of post-match praise from his manager.

Santo said:

He’s a very important player, like all the players. The idea is to create versatile players, that can adjust, we have a small squad so we need all of the momentum that the players must have. Now Adama is doing well, but I insist he has a lot of things to improve. It’s exceptional the way he helps the team, it’s not only the offensive work that he does, the defensive in keeping the shape and pressing, it’s amazing.

Amazing would seem rather more appropriate for Jimenez, for while it is overstating it to say that Wolves are a one-man team, the striker has been directly involved in eight goals this season – very nearly half of the side’s total of 18.

Fellow striker Jota’s assist on Saturday was his first return since Gameweek 6, although he was denied one goal by an offside decision and probably should have had another on the break but shot too close to keeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m).

Finding any kind of reliability in Bournemouth’s ranks is much, much harder.

A run of three straight clean sheets from Gameweek 9 suggested some newly-found steel in the Cherries’ backline, but those shut-outs are the only ones they’ve managed this season and a nasty little run of fixtures now awaits.

Eddie Howe’s side will face Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal over the next six Gameweeks and the other two matches – away at Crystal Palace and home to an in-form Burnley – are not exactly pushovers either.

The 14.2% of managers who own Diego Rico (£4.3m) might stick by their man due to his low cost and potential for attacking returns, but the 14.8% with Ake in their squads could be forgiven for cutting and running sooner rather than later.

Further up the pitch, Fraser made it back-to-back assists to suggest he might be getting closer to the player who scored seven goals and set up a further 14 last season, while the jury has to remain out on four-goal Harry Wilson (£6.0m) as he was one of two players sacrificed at half-time when Howe reorganised his troops in the wake of Francis’s dismissal.

Two players definitely shedding owners ahead of that tough run to come are the injured Josh King (£6.3m) and his strike partner Callum Wilson (£7.7m).

The latter defied the stats to produce attacking returns for the first seven Gameweeks of the season, but the numbers have come back to bite him big time since then.

Wilson has now blanked for six straight matches and it’s not hard to work out why. He’s had only seven attempts over that barren period – six defenders have managed more – and he’s lost more than a third of his ownership in the last four Gameweeks as a result.

Bournemouth have scored just three times in six matches and Arsenal’s almost comically generous defence looks like the only one in bad enough shape to help them address that issue over the next six.

With King out a for a little while, the Cherries may be down another striking option in Gameweek 14.

Howe said after full-time:

Ryan got a dead leg, he was very keen to carry on. We obviously didn’t want to take him off so he got through the game. Dominic Solanke injured his hamstring in the warm-up I think at half-time, so we couldn’t put Dominic on.

I’ve got no idea [how serious Solanke’s injury is]. I only heard about it at half-time, that he just felt his hamstring kicking a ball so I need to see what the situation is.

He’s done so well as well lately in training, looked really good – probably the most impressive he’s been since he’s signed for us and now it looks like we could lose him.

All in all, investment in Cherries’ assets anywhere on the pitch looks like being an act of faith over reality at present, while Jimenez continues to be Wolves’ shining light despite the ever-growing risk of burn-out.

          ah I read that wrong.
          Say goodbye to Digne and Auba for sure. Auba could wait a week as playing Norwich next then switch to Jimi.

          Robertson not for me at the moment. Cleanies not coming and he has a slight niggle.

          Assuming you have Lei defence?

      I don't know the rest of your team, but I can't see it being worth it, Mahrez could well be back on the bench vs Newcastle.

          It'll give you a benching headache tho. I'd prob leave it.

              Hey mate, hope you are well?

              Brought in Son and Traore for Maddison and Mount. Hit aside what do you think about the moves?

                    Let's wait and see...

                    1. Conik
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 23 days ago

                      I'd take Mount and Madd ahead of Son and Traore over the next 4 with no caveats. Throw in your already 4 points behind and there are European games and it's clear that you should have taken your own advice and waited and seen.

                2. avfc82

                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  I like Son and Traore, but it's one of those moves that could backfire as Maddison and Mount both have decent fixtures, but good luck.

        2. BigDaveSaves

          Don't get Mahrez - just trust me..

        Thoughts, finding it harder to make gains.

        I think I need a few differential players, my lowest ownership are Mousset, Tomori & Martial?

        Pope
        Tomori, Trent, Soy
        Mane, KDB, Martial, Maddy, Son
        Vardy, Tammy

        Button, Mousett, Lundstram,Rico

        .5 bank

        C TBC

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I like it. But when are you going to play mousset and Lund? There fixtures are v nice but so are your players. Personally I'd have Lund over Tomori for quite a lot. Maybe mousset over Martial when fixtures are better. If brave you could downgrade Martial and get Laca for Tammy

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            After next week if Martial blanks then he will be going, hopefully things work out.
            Be interesting to see what %age have my front 7?
            You advised Mousset about 3-4 weeks ago 😉

          Best GWs I have had. Left my team alone.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            Yes, think I am set for next couple.

          You must have very high team value.

          I have the same except Pulisic over Maddison (provided he makes it through the midweek game) and I have 0.0m in the bank and Connolly over Mousset.

        1 month, 23 days ago

        I think if Salah plays all 4of the next 4 he will be the highest scoring Player but will he start 4/4?

        Was it an injury or is a still a longterm niggle that will need to be managed over xmas?

            What does that mean. That hes fully fit now?

              Apparently he’ll be fit for CL but whether it’s fully healed, only time will tell.

          He is not gonna be highest scoring even if he plays all 4.

          Willian and Mount to Pulisic and someone else depending how much money you have in the bank

        This is starting to feel like the 2017-18 season again where there is a 9.0 million player setting the league on fire...

        And come the end of the season we ask ourselves why we didn’t captain him more

            Go on then.....I'll bite.
            Which 8.9/9.0m player are you both referring too?
            I can only see Jamie Vardy in that price range as "setting the league" on fire.

            Lol it was meant as a discussion. Salah in 17-18 and Vardy this season. Was referring to starting price.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Pope.
        Robbo, Soyuncu, Lundstram.
        Mount, Mane, KDB, Salah, Cantwell.
        Abraham, Vardy.
        Button, Janmaat, A. Smith, Wickham.
        1ft. 0.0m ITB. Still have WC.

        1. Save FT. Possible move to double Liv defence next GW with Son in for Salah.
        2. KDB-> Son (Got KDB @ 9.5m though + maybe he is a season keeper).

        I'm keeping an eye on James. Emerson was pretty bad against City so we might see Azpi switching to the left. James put in two very decent crosses when he came on. Lampard is a fan and he did well against Zaha

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          tomori 0.1 cheaper and way more nailed

          1. Daniel Son
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Might be nailed but James has potential for attacking returns, and could make that rb role his own. Lampard is a big fan

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              if he gets the spot then sure but they have good fixtures right now so better to go for the nailed option

        2. Regin
          • 2 Years

          Too much of a gamble. No guarantee he'll start.

          I've really like the look of him in the two games I've seen. Would be a horrible use of a transfer though.

        Hi Saints fans,
        Thinking of replacing Button as reserve keeper for McCarthy, as at 4.3 is a real playing alternative to Pope. Is he nailed? Is he any good?

        1. Regin
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          McCarthy nailed i guess but not sure if shampton will get any clean sheets

      11. Dannyb

        Martial to Moura? Or hold for Villa?

        1. Champione

          hold imo

          Cramp, supposedly?

        Someone want to fill me in on this obsession with Tomori?

        Almost 5m, almost on the 2nd page of defenders for scoring in FPL, 1 goal and 3 clean sheets all season.

        Oh but he's nailed for Chelsea.

        So?

        Back four of Lundy, TAA, Chilwell Soyuncu and he wouldn't even break my 5th def spot.

        Rather 3 mids and attacker in Abraham if I wanted 3 chelsea.

        1. stupendous

          As in 2 mid 1 fwd makes 3

            Agreed, Tomori is overvalued, but a good option in busy winter period

            1. stupendous
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Many people are nailed and cheaper and offer far more potential on a regular basis. Happy to have people and rivals start him every week. They don't do clean sheets and he hasn't looked threatening to me.

              He will haul 20 this week now

              1. C_Manan
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Even I have him in the hope that Chelsea will start keeping clean sheets. Plus with GWs coming in fast and decent run for Chelsea, not worthwhile to waste a transfer, rather keep him as a backup

                  1. stupendous
                    • 7 Years

                    Fair enough

                    Didn't tomori get a massive 9 pts last gw vs crystal palace. What more u want?

                  You have to have 5 defenders. Tomori for 4.5 or 4.6 was a clever use of squad space/funds. I didn't get on but there is no obsession, just a solid pick. If you go back 8 gws who would you have picked that has turned out better?

              three home clean sheets in a row with bonus in two of those.. three of the next four games at home

              1. stupendous
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Those clean sheets were against mostly fodder and the first one dates back to week 7.

                Not sold. They play too freely with cracks all over the back.

                  well OK but West Ham, Villa and Bournemouth could also be described as "fodder" and they're up next.. I'm happy to bench him for away games

                  1. markloe

                    also r.e. "the first one dates back to week 7" looking at their results I see a pattern of low scoring home games and then high scoring away games going back to then, they have a lot of possession at home which is in Tomori's favour

              I think you have a reasonable point here...

              1 month, 23 days ago

              I wouldn't buy him at the current price, but a lot of us got him at 4.5 or 4.6, and he's a starting defender for a top 4 or 5 side with great fixtures coming up. He's a good option to have in the coming weeks & is currently giving me a big benching headache.

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Fair enough I suppose. If you've got you hold.

              You would have said the same about Soy 6 weeks ago.

              Got both Soy and Tomori at 4.5m They're not going anywhere.

              I fully agree with you buddy, but I bought him for 4,5 🙂

              I have tomori but play him only when i feel Chelsea can get cs. I benched him away to city. Recently he gave me 9 pts i think.

              With Ward injured will we see Kelly playing for Palace?
              Can Ayew/ Zaha prove to be among the differentials in coming weeks?

              1. stupendous
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Dont mind kelly again for 5th but think I'll wait on that for now. Not urgent.
                Sold Ayew weeks ago but I'd keep if had him still

              My FPL team is alright but need help from the pros with chasing my private prized SSFF league. Team is:

              Schmeichel

              TAA
              Pereira
              Stevens

              Maddison
              Tielemens
              Grealish
              Mount

              Auba
              Sterling
              Mane

              Thinking of doing:
              A) Auba > Son (leaves me without Arsenal asset)
              B) Sterling > KDB (if he gets that 5th yellow)
              C) Grealish > McGinn (before the deadline tonight)
              D) Mount > Pulisic

              Willing to take suggestion. I’m only 70 points behind the leader with 28/40 transfers left.

                You need Vardy. Who are your subs?

                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Apologies, didn't realise it was the Sky game.

                    1 month, 23 days ago

                    No problem. Still trying to decide how to improve the team. At one point i was making ground but seems like the rest of my league are using up their subs again.

                    1. Monkey Hanger
                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 23 days ago

                      I do play Sky. For me there is more value at the back than in midfield, so I think 4-3-3 is a better formation.

                      1. FabzGuitar
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        1 month, 23 days ago

                        Who do I get rid of and who do I put in. Was never a fan of 4-3-3 due to lack of Clean Sheets but I think it’s time I changed that mentality. Only sub I can see making is one of my Leicester mids for a Leicester defence as they’re on form.

                          1 month, 23 days ago

                          Soyuncu is a must have, at his price.

                          1. Monkey Hanger
                            • 6 Years
                            1 month, 23 days ago

                            Picks up loads of bonus, which is what you should be looking for.

                            1. Monkey Hanger
                              • 6 Years
                              1 month, 23 days ago

                              I would play Mount this Saturday, then change for Soyuncu on the Sunday. Then you get two games for the one transfer.

                                Was thinking of:
                                Tielemens > Sonyucu
                                Auba > Son
                                Mount > Pulisic (after Saturday, everyone seems to be jumping in the Pulisic bandwagon)
                                And maybe getting rid of Grealish for McGinn but thinking I might leave him for today’s game and see how he performs.

              Thoughts on Gabriel Jesus for a punt?

              I have a feeling he’s going to capitalise on his teammates injury

                I'm tempted

                It could be great. But Pep could also push Raz up there. I'm fed up waiting to see if my Man City players actual start.

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                We look a bit jaded and disjointed at the moment. Too many injuries and too much rotation otherwise.
                Raz seems off.
                Tough fixtures coming up.

                Dont think he will be a good investment with the likes of Vardy, Jimmy Abraham offering way better value.

                Kdb the only city player needed

                1. Monkey Hanger
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Agree, and no Kun magnifies the problem. I' m considering ditching KDB now.

                1 month, 23 days ago

                I think he could do really well, and Pep's pretty much said he'll lead the line in Aguero's absence.

              5. Jarvish Scott Talent
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                I wish Aguero was confirmed out for a couple of weeks longer - could have fit like a glove around the Liverpool blank GW WC.

                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  That's the thing isn't it, it's probably a move 3 Gameweeks, then it's back to him being rotated.

                2. Conik
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Exactly, highly unlikely to be worth the transfers unless you are specifically looking for a Kun replacement, maybe Auba at a push.

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                I think he'll do fine. Will he be better than other options that most people already have? Doubt it.

              Pope Button
              TAA Chilwell Lundstram Lowton Kelly

              Wilson Vardy Abraham

              2FT / 1.9ITB

              A) Wilson + Lowton --> Ings + Robbo
              B) Wilson + Mount --> Ings + Son
              C) Wilson + Lowton -> Jesus + Cahill
              D) Wilson + Lowton --> Jimenez + PVA

                3 4 3 with Jimmy
                Or
                4 4 2 with TAA and Robbo, double up

                Have the likes of Son, Mane, KDB etc

                Think triple pool then free hit or WC for week 18 is a plan

                Which would you rather have? Defender will probably be benched until GW18 & GW19 while the keeper will be used regularly

                    Yes, was thinking this as well... Problem is who do I bench instead of PVA out of TAA, Lundstram & Soyuncu ?

                      I see a rest coming for him soon. A sign of tiredness this last gameweek.

                    I've got 2 ft and the exact money to go KDB and Mount to Pulisic and Salah

                    That's a go right?

                        Think I'm better off just holding KDB?
                        I could use cash to upgrade Mads to Son

                          Yeah. KDB in decent form, Salah isn't. Madisson to ason sounds good.

                      Polisic and Son?

                      Fortune favours the brave. Personally I'm spreading the risk and keeping Kevin. You can only captain one of Salah or mane each week remember

                        Which means 12.5m is fairly ineffective.

                        I went to 3-5-2 on my WC back when Jimmy & Wolves weren’t looking great.

                        But he’s making me regret my decision now that’s for sure.

                        May even do Martial & Connolly > Jimmy & cheapie next GW and move back to a 3-4-3. Though also very tempted to do a straight Martial > Pulisic swap too

                        I've just noticed that Lundstram has more points than Salah.

                            He mas more points than Son, Sterling etc etc.

                            Salah has had 2 blank GW's though and had his ankle issue. Wait till he starts firing. All said, 3rd highest scoring mid...

                          Can't quite decide whether Mount > Pulisic is worth a FT or not. Not worried about rotation for Mount but rather, tats wise he's getting destroyed in recent weeks in pretty much every category.

                            I think it's a good move. Better assist potential and far better bonus points

                            I reckon it's close. So close, in fact, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a better use of your transfer. Has to be a pretty big chance Pulisic doesn't start one of 14/15/16 given he will likely play this midweek.

                            He's clearly the better pick, even with pots tial rotation lobbed in there. Made the move this week myself.
