Scout Reports

What can FPL managers expect from new West Ham midfielder Jarrod Bowen?

One of the biggest deals of the January transfer window saw Jarrod Bowen move from Hull City to West Ham United for a reported £22m.

The versatile winger, 23, signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with the Hammers on deadline day and could be poised to make his debut in Gameweek 26, having not arrived in time to be eligible to face Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.

Price up by Fantasy Premier League as a £6.5m midfielder, Bowen moves to east London with a reputation for scoring goals: the ex-Hull prospect had found the back of the net on 16 occasions in 29 Championship appearances this season before his big-money move.

Bowen spent a lot of his time as an inverted winger on the right flank at the KCOM Stadium but has also deputised as an auxiliary centre-forward and in ‘the hole’, which presents him with a number of different routes into the Hammers’ starting XI.

Upon Bowen’s capture, West Ham manager David Moyes said:

We are delighted to welcome Jarrod to West Ham United. I think he could be a big success.

He’s probably what you’d call a wide forward these days, or perhaps an old-fashioned inside-right. He has played a couple of games as a second centre forward or as a no.10.

When you score goals like he does, and in the numbers he does, in the Championship, it will give you a great chance of scoring goals in the Premier League. We were attracted to the goals he has scored over the years; not just in one year, but over the last three years.

The player himself said:

I know this is the next step at another level. People expect me to score and I’ve put myself in that position. It’s a challenge I relish and one I’m looking forward to because scoring goals in the Premier League and winning games for this club would be unbelievable.

The fans will always see 110 per cent when I play, and I think that’s the main thing – and then with everything else, I just try to excite people and get people off their seats.

What can we Fantasy managers expect from Bowen in the remaining third of 2019/20, then?

The History and Statistics

Born in December 1996, Bowen was knocked back by Aston Villa and Cardiff City in trials as a youth.

He began his career in earnest with local club Hereford United, progressing through the academy side and into the first-team set-up at the tender age of 17.

The young attacking midfielder made eight Conference Premier (now National League) appearances at the back-end of the 2013/14 season, scoring once and helping the struggling Bulls to survival – although his hometown club were subsequently expelled from the division for financial reasons.

Bowen then made the move to Hull in July 2014, although featured only for the under-18s and under-21s in his first two campaigns on Humberside.

Finally making his Tigers debut in August 2016 in an EFL Cup tie, Bowen went on to make seven Premier League appearances (as a £4.5m FPL forward) as first Mike Phelan and then Marco Silva were unable to prevent Hull from dropping into the second tier.

The 2017/18 campaign was Bowen’s breakthrough season as he immediately established himself as a first-team regular under Leonid Slutsky, consolidating his place in the starting XI even after the Russian had departed.

Bowen was an ever-present last season (only one of his 46 league run-outs came as a substitute) and was again integral to the Hull side in 2019/20, not missing a single minute of Championship football until his move to east London in late-January.

The new West Ham midfielder made 124 league appearances for the Tigers in total, scoring on 52 occasions.

The full breakdown is as follows:

    Should I WC? I know it's a lot of players to compare so I have sequenced the like-for-like replacement.

    A) Stick with current - Foster, Soy, Kelly, Robbo, Lunds, Grealish, Martial, Vardy
    B) Kun option - Pope, Egan, Stephens, Lascelles, Tanganga, Son, Hendo, Kun
    C) Auba option - Pope, Stevens, Stephens, Lascelles, Aurier, Son, Hendo, Auba

      If you're not certain about Wildcarding, it could be a more valuable resource to navigate the double/blank gameweeks.

        Thanks! I am fine with BGW 28, and might use BB/FT for the other DGW/BGW. I am very tempted to use WC because Soy, Kelly, Lunds, Martial and Vardy and either off-form or no longer guaranteed starters. Felt the need to refresh my squad.

        Will be getting Mane in for a City asset for 28

        looks good. but consider the upcoming 2 x henderson blanks. Also I don't rate martial personally.

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 7 days ago

          will FH in 31 and just go without a keeper in 28 I think. Martial isn't great but not too many decent alternatives atm.

        Best team I’ve seen

    4. Tsparkes10

      Have Martial, Maupay and Lund. Not sure what to do with them :/.

      1. L S P
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 7 days ago

        1 ft - roll
        2 ft - sell lund

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 7 days ago

          Team on previous page. Want Stevens but funds make it impossible

          1. L S P
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 7 days ago

            nothing wrong with oconnell.

            (i'm a maupay/martial owner fwiw)

      2. Dr Mulholland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 7 days ago

        (Unless you have a transfer to burn) see whether they start this gameweek.
        If they do not then sell next week.

      3. Atwood
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 7 days ago

        If Maupay starts he might be worth keeping just one more week. That’s a big “if” though.

        I think Lundstram will start too, so maybe get rid next week.

        Martial can go, really dislike owning him.

      4. ^Freedom Fighter^
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 7 days ago

        Ship 2 out probably maupay and lund

    5. Avon calling
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 7 days ago

      Ward-Prowse owner? What are your plans?

      1. Dr Mulholland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 7 days ago

        Sorry not an owner, but I was considering him before his injury. Seems like it might not be as bad as first thought, so he could be back soon?

        I would have to see him playing again, and not at right-back to consider him again.

      2. Bushwhacker
          5 months, 7 days ago

          Keep. Just an hole innit.

      3. Atwood
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 7 days ago

        Contemplating my first hits of the season. I realise Maupay is terrible, but if he plays this week he at least has a good fixture.

        How does this sound?
        This GW - Kelly/Vardy > Stephens/Aubameyang (-4)
        Next GW - Dendoncker/Maupay > Traore/Jiminez (-4)

        Henderson
        Soyuncu - TAA - Kelly
        Cantwell - KDB - Salah - Martial
        Vardy - Maupay - Ings

        Button - Rico - Lundstram - Dendonker

              Thanks! You’re probably right. Also...between Aguero and Auba, Aguero is the better pick, yeah?

            Why not hold Vardy? He can score in any fixture and they get better soon. Transferring aguero is a risk and you’re betting he starts the next two before he blanks. You then need to spend another transfer to get back the striker with good fixtures- Vardy. If I had to pick perhaps V to Firmino

            I'd think about downgrading one of Son/Kun to upgrade team elsewhere. You should have a backup gk now, Tanganga/Taylor/Fernandez too cheap and poor, I'd consider one sheff defender maybe

            fern to Lascelles and get a 2nd keeper.But I think Kun will be rested next week v leicester with Real Madrid CL and Villa cup final in same week.

          With sterling out is it safe to assume that Kun will start? Tempted to TC Kun this gw. Have all 4 chips intact, might as well use one now.

            I'm 95% sure he will start but there is always Pep factor

              So TC or save for a dgw? Have all chips and no clue what to do with them.

                GW 29 maybe a DGW too for City. Nothing confirmed yet. What is your GW 31 plan ?
                If you are using FH in GW 31, TC maybe useful in one of the 34/37

                  Tbh don't have any plans yet. Should I be using FH in gw31?? Here's the team below if it helps. Cheers mate

                    If you don't want to plan ahead & think about GW 31 re transfers, I'd suggest to just play your game atm & see how many you have at that time. I think you'll play FH in 31. In that case TC can be used in a DGW alongside BB.

            Mahrez is now nailed, but he is evidently chasing a 22 year old groupie

            He’s not taking care of business any more, on the field

          I think we need to cancel the Dead Zone really and do our part for zero carbon emissions.

          I'm sorry to see it go and all that_ but needs must yeh, and tbh the DZ has always been a little clique oooooooooosk shall we say.

          Pirates and Parasites. the lot of 'em.

          Save our Economy and kill the DZ ffs

          Difficult two fixtures for Leicester coming up, so Vardy and Maddison to...

          A. Son and Wood
          B. Auba and Barnes
          C. Keep Vardy and Maddison

          1. Esalman
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 7 days ago

            I'd keep one of them (which is Maddison, got rid of Vardy before dgw). After 28 fixtures ease up.

            C imo - they’re both good enough FPL assets to hold long term, especially with Ndidi back

            Those short term sales can be extremely dodgy when involving great players - TAA had “two bad gameweeks coming up” when people sold him in GW17 for example 😉

          Which option?

          A) Burnley defence*
          B) Southampton defence**

          *0 blanks, 0 DGW’s
          **1 blank, 1 DGW (probably)

          1. Holmes
            • 6 Years

            A will probably keep more CSs

          My 10 worst decisions of 19/20 (so far)

          (1) keeping Abraham as Ings fixtures became great
          (2) getting Pulisic and getting trapped for 0.2 drop
          (3) started the season with Sterling! How dumb was that!
          (4) didn’t have KDB week-1
          (5) got Sarr as a differential, then he got hurt and I’m trapped
          (6) had Mane at C during week 24
          (7) I have owned D James in two spells! Got some points
          (8) briefly owned Sidibe - wasted transfer
          (9) owned Ayoze Perez week-1
          (10) owned Otamendi and had to waste a transfer to eliminate

          Then several other wasted transfers:

          Rico, Ceballos, B Williams, Zaha, D James, Firmino (before week 24), mount, Janmaat (right at Injury)

          I have no business in the top-1% of players. I should be expelled from even playing FPL

                They'll get 100m£+ easily !!
                Current market is pathetically overpriced.

                  Who can afford this price?

                  Barcelona. Real Madrid, Liverpool, Man City, Paris SG

                  Other than PSG, nobody is going to want him. He doesn’t seem like a team player. Real Madrid made this comment before the season “we have been warned about his attitude”
