Recapping the best Wolves players ahead of FPL restart

Wolves are offering a healthy number of viable assets for Fantasy Premier League managers, regardless of their chip strategy.

The next few weeks mean that their players could help out those Free Hitting or Bench Boosting in Double Gameweek 30+ or planning for the long-term.

We are currently recapping which players went into the coronavirus (COVID-19) suspension in the best form, using each club’s last six matches for the analysis.

We have also been assessing the impact of recently appointed new managers in the Premier League, so this series covers the other 15 sides, concluding with Wolves.

As we are sure you understand, a lot has changed since the climax of Gameweek 29, with Premier League players unable to fully train with their team-mates for nearly three months. 

However, it should still serve to know who was performing best before the break.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those signed up to a valid package can access it in full.

    A) Dubravka & Targett (if early news Reina is dropped)
    B) Reina & Fernandez/Lascelles
    C) Some other combo (9.7 to spend, already have 3 SHU)

    Back line is
    Leno ?
    TAA Doherty Baldock Stevens ?

      Steer clear of AVL defenders.

      Baldock isn't worth his price tag imo. Drop Baldock for Lund, O'Connell, or Egan so you have more funds to work with.

      Dub and Saiss could be decent.

    First time back in the deadzone for months...
    Thoughts on this everyone? BB then WC next week.

    Ederson - Reina
    TAA - Robertson - Lundstram - Egan - Lascelles
    De Bruyne - Grealish - El Ghazi - Saka - Fleck
    Aguero - Aubameyang - Abraham

      Too weak of a midfield for me

    Any Villa fans around??Are we expecting Reina to start both games?? Penny pinching with my team now and Leno to Reina(if he will play both) can enable a team I’m finally pretty settled on!! Haha

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I've read the Villa forums, and far more of their predicted XIs have Nyland starting. Heck, some even had Steer starting. Whether than will actually happen, I am less inclined to believe, but I don't think it is the safest bet at all.

        Oh no haha that’s not what we need to hear with a double on the horizon indecisiveness,will just stick with Leno/Henderson to play safe then I think!! Cheers for that mate!!

    Hi all - apologies, I asked this question yesterday but can't find the comment or any replies (I've turned on notifications now).

    If I free hit this week, will I have two free transfers next week (as I didn't use my free transfer this week)?

    Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    1. amtosh
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Ignore this. Found my earlier comment.

      Answer is no I think.

  5. maglia rosa

    So my final draft of my FH, thought I’d try the deadzone for any thoughts....pretty pleased with it tbh and my chances of limiting my losses to an ‘in the know’ rival with a BB and WC in his pocket.

    Henderson
    Doherty Egan Targett
    Sterling Grealish Kdb Mount
    Aguero Aubameyang Abraham

    Martin Guendouzi Killman Janmat.

    Hello all, what do you think of this as a possible GW31 Wildcard? (this is the best I think I can do with my team value of 102.5m in preparation)....

    Pope/Button
    Aurier/ Maguire/TAA/Doherty/Lascelles
    Mane/Son/Martial/Fernandes/Cantwell
    Rashford/Jota/Pukki

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Decent. Wait to see how GW30 plays out. It's a new game with five subs per side.

        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks Aufeld, I will wait until GW30 but seems like I can still get a lot of the essentials (it hurts I'm losing 1.3m of team value in the UT+BBGW30 option, but i'm maximising of the DGW 🙂

  7. TAT
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Sorting out the last FH spots:
    1. TAA + Mount (also have Abraham)
    2. TAA + Fleck
    3. Doherty + any 7.3 or less mid

    Thoughts?

  8. Scratch
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Thinking BB this week 30. FH next week 31. Sell a couple City players for 32. Wildcard 33 is the best option.

    Only reservation would be using my FH so soon after the restart. It's not that unlikely we could see a scenario where, say for instance, 2 or 3 Spurs players test positive for covid a day or two before they face United, game postponed until all Spurs players can be retested and so another DGW somewhere down the line

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Bottom scenario could happen, but would just be pure bad luck. Just have to look at it that way.

  9. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Hi all. Hope everyone is doing well 🙂

    I've just had a quick look at my side for the first time in a while. My current team is basically the team I would free hit for next week. Would it be madness to free hit this week? It seems silly considering there's unlimited free transfers but not mad keen on selling my current side. I'm sure this has already been mentioned so sorry if has been talked to death already

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Not madness. Depends what works for your side.

      1. Viper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah, I suppose it's madness but I never envisaged myself playing free hit in a week where there were unlimited transfers anyway 😆

    2. Rondon9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Thats what im doing, my team looks solid next week with Pope Bruno Salah TAA Robbo etc

      1. Viper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        I have those 5 plus Maguire Jimenez Jota. I'd basically have the bones of my free hit team

  10. Mr. O'Connell
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Stonking green or huge red arrow?

    Leno, Villa GK
    TAA, Doherty, Lundstram, Stevens, Egan
    Sterling (c), KDB, Mahrez, Grealish, Bruno
    Tammy, Jota, Samatta

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I like the Sterling cap. Going up against ARS and BHA who have conceded the 3rd and 5th most amount of chances on their right flank since GW20. Sterling also has the second highest xGI, however he's also the most under-performing player of the season with a -6.86 xGI delta of the season. Could be gold.

      Samatta and Villa GK are uninspiring. Jota is a toss up.

  11. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    For those of you free hitting have you hit FH button or waiting until nearer deadline?

    1. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I took the plunge yesterday (deep breath)

    2. Rondon9

      Activated tonight mate

  12. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Just for this week then wc:

    A
    1 Alonso
    2 Doherty

    B
    1 McGinn
    2 Barnes

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      2 1

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      2 & 2

      If I knew Alonso was starting, perhaps would lean that way.

  13. Totalfootball
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Is John Lundstram a safe pick ?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Short answer: no

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      No - hopefully we may hear team news pre deadline as first game

    3. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      There’s a chance of some early team news on the utd line up, mentioned in the Scoutcast. Well worth keeping up to speed if it looks like Lundy starts it makes it an easier transfer.

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Not for 180. I think he'll get at least 90 across the two games though.

      1. Totalfootball
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks , helpful!

  14. Totti
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    guys could you plz help me to finalise my BB?

    A) sterling or ederson as third man city player
    B) 3 shiffield defenders or 2 with fleck
    C) samata or el ghazi

  15. Twisted Saltergater

    Who takes penalties for Liverpool if Milner isn't on the pitch?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Salah I think

    2. Totti
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      salah

    3. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Salah

    4. bench boost for every gamew…

      nice one, thanks all.

    Best option for last midfield spot on a FH:
    A. Fleck
    B. Harvey Barnes

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Barnes more explosive

    2. Totti
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      B

    3. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      A for gw30, B long term

  17. Pad Randa (The OG)
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    FH Team. Chasing ML, so need a bit of diff.

    1. O'Connell + Boly + Ozil + Auba
    2. Doherty + VvD + Pepe + Sharpe

    1. Totti
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      1

  18. FPLGeezer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Just back on getting up to speed. If you have no WC but have BB & FH is the consensus plan FH in GW30+?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      If you are happy with team you get back in 31+ then yes otherwise BB and reshape team for 31+ ( with a smattering of double players recognising may need to take hit to remove some)

      1. FPLGeezer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        I WC in gw29 but not entirely happy with the entire team. So caught between the two chips but will need to weigh up the costs involved down the like like hits as you say. BB now would be easier to use then any other point tbf.

  19. Doolittle
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Starting to try to build a team; looking at using the unlimited transfers this week with BB, then WC next week.

    Is it crazy to keep Calvert-Lewin as I bought him at 5.9? Am I better getting, say, Samatta, and taking the loss? I may want him back at some point. Same situation with Bruno Fernandes.

    Here's my current draft:

    Leno/Henderson
    TAA/Laporte/Baldock/Saiss/Lascelles
    KDB/Grealish/Bruno/McGinn/Fleck
    Auba/Aguero/DCL

    0.5 ITB

    1. Eastman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Its difficult but best to pencil in your WC team and see if you can afford the price changes. Laporte and McGinn not nailed imo

      1. Doolittle
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks mate! Agree about McGinn, he may well be ditched. Any reason to think Laporte isn't nailed? I may have missed something!

        1. AuFeld
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          One may argue that Laporte is not nailed. He's injury prone and it's a DGW. I wouldn't expect him to play 180 mins between the two matches. Somewhere around 120 mins is more likely.

          McGinn hasn't played in a while and will probably be eased in.

        2. Eastman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          El Ghazi a safer bet than McGinn

    2. inactive
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Hello, hope you're well

      Keep Bruno, bin DCL

      Scoutcast showed that Stevens, Egan and O'Connell are better picks than Baldock

      1. Doolittle
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Hey Berb, I'm well thanks, hope you are too!

        Cheers, haven't listened to the Scoutcast yet so will check that out.

        1. inactive
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          All good 🙂

          Well worth a watch, best scoutcast in months

      2. Totti
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        why the no-love for baldock?
        may be for the price only or there is something else?

        1. inactive
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Check scoutcast

          Other Sheffield defenders create more and get more attempts from set plays

      3. Pad Randa (The OG)
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Good to know. Did O'Connell + Baldock to Egan + Stevens just now.

    3. maglia rosa

      Dcl ➡ Nketiah maybe

      1. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Definitely.

      2. Doolittle
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers mate, confident about Nketiah's minutes?

        I'm feeling a bit out of the loop at the moment, feel like I've totally put FPL out of my mind during the pandemic!

        1. maglia rosa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          I’ve just commented below on how much of a boggle it all is with the break, rule changes and every f**k Witt getting free transfers. I’ve needed the full week to get my head around it tbh 😆
          Nketiah has been getting his fair share of minutes in the Gooners practice games, more than Laca I think so he’s a good enabler. You need to get cracking buddy 😉

    4. E25
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      So you'll lose 0.3 on DCL (if you def want him back...) - I'd get rid.

  20. acidicleo
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    4 Years24 mins ago
    A) Alonso Lascelles Fleck or
    B) Doherty Egan Cantwell

    B would mean triple SU defence..
    With both optiins nothing ITB.

    Thanks.

    Thoughts on the BB team. WC in 31

    Henderson McGovern
    Mings Boldock O’Connell
    Sterling (C) KdB Grealish Saka McGinn
    Aguero Auba

    D Luiz TAA Greenwood

    1. Totti
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      why you're benchboosting?
      pointless in my opinion

      1. AshtonJ
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        So you think save the BB until 32 ?

        1. Totti
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          change the team mate and get min 12 players playing DGW and 3 others and bench boost
          next week use the wildcard

          1. AshtonJ
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            That’s what I did do

    2. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Not worth a bb for Mings and Saka

    3. E25
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Not good for a BB I'm afraid. McGovern and Greenwood??

  24. pitstop1

    Do we normally get reliable leaked team news pre-deadline for Villa?

    1. Totti

    Thoughts on this BB team please. WC in 31:

    Ederson / Reina
    Lund / Egan / TAA / Doherty / Lascalles
    KDB (c) / Pepe / Grealish / Cantwell / Fleck
    Auba / Aguero / Samatta

    Thanks

      I personally don't like Samatta or Pepe. Would rather do something like Nketia and Sterling if thats possible (downgrading Ederson for cash ofc)
      However, they could be good differentials/punts 🙂

    Guys! Any thoughts about this BB team please. Only FH left after that. Thank you all so much:

    Hendo Ederson
    Sais Lund Egan Cahill Lascelles
    KDB Mane Mount Cantwell Saka
    Auba Aguero Jota

      Do you want Hendo or Ederson moving forward?
      Same with Lund and Egan.
      Front 8 looks decent although I don't personally like Saka or Jota.

        Egan and Hendo are making way after the DGW. Same for Aguero. What are your plans mate?

          I'm loading up on all those players but am wildcarding out next week! Then saving FH for a rainy day

    Henderson
    Soyun doherty lund
    Mane barnes fleck kdb
    Rash jota aguero

    Subs: pope saka vvd aurier

    Midfield quite weak or gtg?

    Am thinking to get walker though but well not enough funds

    Thoroughly enjoyed the scoutcast and has given me a lot of fresh thoughts on players like Jesus and O'Connell given their stats and price

    Thanks to Jonty, Az and Andy

      Az gave me the most inspiration!

        Absolutely.

        The mins per goal attempt in box stat changed my thinking.

        Aguero will score, but Jesus will too and you'll get 2m to invest in a Doherty etc.

          2m is all the rage at the moment.

      Yup. Agreed, could be down to the novelty of footy being back. It helped that there were different situations and therefore different solutions.

      I’m much better now I’ve made a choice. It’s a bit of a boggle first up.

      Haven't started picking a team or even working out if I FH yet.

        The one thing stopping me from FH is that I feel like i'm wasting a free wildcard! But in doing so, I have to accept I will lose 1.3m value on my team if cashing in with a full DGW30 Squad. Tough decisions. But theres something about the 'hope' of a DGW. It's addictive.
