Saïss delivers on Project Restart promise as Jiménez returns to his FPL best

Sheff Utd 0-2 Wolves

  • Goals: Raúl Jiménez (£8.5m), Romain Saïss (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Daniel Podence (£5.5m), Pedro Neto (£5.5m)
  • Bonus Points: Saïss x3, Jiménez x2, Conor Coady x2 (£5.0m)

Raúl Jiménez (£8.5m) was back to his best at the first time of asking as Wolves beat Sheffield 2-0 on Monday night.

After a decent start to Project Restart, the Mexican’s 2019/20 campaign largely petered out, but that familiar spring in his step returned for the start of 2020/21.

If nothing else, it was a standard outing for Jiménez as he spearheaded Wolves’ attack on the counter, scored what turned out to be the winning goal and took a share of bonus points as a result. That rewarded his 19% ownership with a solid eight-point haul.

In a Gameweek where Harry Kane (£10.5m), Danny Ings (£8.5m) and Richarlison (£8.0m) all blanked, Jiménez took virtually no time to show he means business this season.

During the first half especially, Wolves were offered plenty of space on the counter-attack. It was in the third minute that Daniel Podence (£5.5m), deployed on the left-hand side of the front-three, left John Lundstram (£5.5m) behind to occupy the vacuum left by George Baldock (£5.5m) at right wing-back. His fine left-footed cross dropped beautifully to an unmarked Jiménez, who rifled high into the top corner of Aaron Ramsdale‘s (£5.0m) net.

Two minutes later, Jiménez was in again. This time Leander Dendoncker (£5.0m) had made it to the byline, chopping the ball back towards the forward. Backing away from Baldock, Jiménez chested it down, firing a fierce effort towards goal, stopped only by a sprawling Ramsdale save.

He went even closer to adding to his tally in the 83rd minute as João Moutinho (£5.5m) sent in an excellent corner, which Jiménez directed onto the front post.

Sheffield United were, admittedly, uncharacteristically brittle at the back in the early exchanges, which we will come back to later, but Jiménez passed the eye test with flying colours on Monday night. Considering he has previously shown a ruthless streak against the so-called top-six, a Gameweek 2 meeting with Manchester City, who typically play a high defensive line, may not be as tough for his owners as first feared.

Fantasy managers in search of value in the £5.5m midfielder brackets would have liked what they saw of Podence and Pedro Neto (£5.5m) in Gameweek 1. The two mid-priced options were both deployed either side of Jiménez, keeping Diogo Jota (£6.5m) out of the side and on the bench all evening.

Each player looked lively, especially when they were given the chance to trouble Sheffield United on the counter-attack. And in a Gameweek where Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m), Lundstram and Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) all blanked, Podence and Neto each registered a score of six points.

The former got his assist for Jiménez’s opening goal, while Neto managed to wrestle away one corner from Moutinho, which Romain Saïss (£5.0m) turned into the net after five minutes.

However, Fantasy managers should probably approach the Wolves front-line with caution in the coming weeks, as there is plenty of competition for places. While Jota was rooted to the bench on Monday, we know he is good enough to come into the team either as a wide-forward in a 3-4-3 or centre-forward in a 3-5-2. Meanwhile, Adama Traoré (£6.5m) may be used further forward at some point, although, for now, it appears as if he is filling the void at right wing-back by Matt Doherty (£6.0m).

The Wolves defence continues to reward Fantasy managers who invested in the right options. Their clean sheet at Bramall Lane was the 10th since Gameweek 25 of last season. Since then, no other Premier League team has recorded as many shut-outs, Manchester City and Manchester United (both nine), the joint-second-best in that department.

As we have come to expect from Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, they managed Monday night’s game exceptionally well, for the most part, limiting Sheffield United to half-chances.

They were particularly dominant in the opening 25 minutes, where the Blades registered just one touch in the box and no efforts on goal. By the end of the 90 minutes, Chris Wilder’s men had mustered just one shot on target. While such impressive control of the game does not exactly bode well for Wolves defenders as they prepare to face Manchester City, Sheffield United’s troubles in front of goal could be promising for Aston Villa.

In terms of how best to invest in Wolves defenders (probably from Gameweek 3 onwards), Saïss once again emerged as a key option. The Moroccan international offered great value at the back end of last season and, despite a price hike to £5.0m, he was back to his best at Bramall Lane.

Saïss was the man who rose highest to score Neto’s fifth-minute corner and he was unfortunate not to come away from Yorkshire with three goals to his name. He was afforded another free header in the 52nd minute, which he nodded just wide and later in the second half, he was caught advancing almost in a centre-forward’s position. Jiménez led a counter-attack through the middle, sliding Saïss in on the left. His fierce effort was tipped onto the post by Ramsdale, before Jiménez screwed the rebound just wide.

As it turned out, Saïss also claimed maximum bonus points, continuing his BPS appeal from Project Restart, ending up with a 15-point haul. More threatening than Willy Boly (£5.5m) and Conor Coady (£5.0m), the Moroccan currently seems like the best Wolves defender to consider, especially in light of Ruben Vinagre‘s (£4.5m) evening.

Owned by over 10% of managers, the young left-back was not given the chance to hold down the position while new signing Marçal (£5.0m) bedded in. Nuno offered a route straight into the team for the debutant, who lasted the whole game. That said, he did not venture forward too often and was certainly less dangerous in the area than the similarly-priced Saïss.

As Vinagre’s Fantasy owners consider how to upgrade him to the Moroccan in a few weeks, the silver lining was the fact that he remained on the Wolves bench. Accordingly, auto-subs were triggered, although Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m) was the only of the top-three most-benched defenders for Gameweek 1 who played; Barry Douglas (£4.0m) and Bernardo (£4.0m) the other two.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United defenders were far from useful in their first Gameweek of the new campaign. As already mentioned, they gave up a whole host of chances, especially on the counter. It was a far cry from the Blades we have come to know under Wilder in the Premier League and this was the first time this calendar year that they conceded more than once at home in a match.

It went from bad to worse for the most fashionable Sheffield United asset too as John Egan (£5.0m), owned by more than 16% of Fantasy managers was booked in the first half.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; O’Connell, Egan, Basham (McGoldrick 71′); Stevens, Fleck, Norwood (Berge 76′), Lundstram, Baldock; McBurnie, Sharp.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Boly; Marçal, Dendoncker, Moutinho (Vitinha 86′), Traoré; Podence (Neves 76′), Jiménez, Neto (Buur 69′).

    Any reason not to do Werner (Flagged) > Martial (plus 0.5m) for free now?

    Martial nailed right?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 34 mins ago

      Werner looked good, will get points when Pulisic &co are fit. But Martial cheaper and he will also do well.

    2. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 33 mins ago

      Must be nailed!

      Hopefully we get an incremental update from Lampard on Werner and his flag will be removed. Would be annoying to see Werner drop. I'm sold on Son -> Fernandes instead.

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 25 mins ago

      Fear of what will happen if Werner somehow becomes essential after next gw and high ownership, I presume anyways

    4. Marmalade Forest
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 18 mins ago

      1) You find out in the next four days that Martial will miss the game
      2) Werner plays West Brom, Palace and Southampton in the next three games after Liverpool.
      3) Liverpool don’t seem “that good” at the back
      4) You could transfer someone else
      5) You could hold your transfer for next week when you have come across more issues

  2. Pukki Party

    Anyone else who had the worst gameweek of the season so far this week?

    1. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 33 mins ago

      Worst and best

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 33 mins ago

      Yes, horrible gw for me, trying not to be rash with transfers

    3. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 31 mins ago

      I've broken the all time record of my lowest scoring FPL GW score. Got 30 points.

      1. Marmalade Forest
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 16 mins ago

        30? Huge “lowest ever Gameweek” score that.

        20 below average isn’t “that bad”

        I had a week last season I scored under 20 and the average was over 50.

      2. Little Red Lacazette
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 11 mins ago

        2 seasons ago, I had a score of 20 points total in one GW.

    4. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 30 mins ago

      Everyone can recover from one bad gameweek and in all likelihood the players scoring well next week won't have scored well (or played!) this week. But if you tear your Team up early and waste a wildcard you could find yourself at a real disadvantage in the mid/long term.

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 26 mins ago

        I scored 77 but it's still my worst this season.

        1. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years
          6 days, 25 mins ago

          😀 😀

    5. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 26 mins ago

      Nope, copped it worse in preseason

    6. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 21 mins ago

      Yes 28 points lol

    7. el polako

      Yeah and initialy was in good spirit about it thinking - " Its only 1 week and upwards & onwards from now on" but slowly getting depressed and starting to worry to what happens if I have another 4.5m (rank) performamce ?

      Considering hits, WC and god know what ? Scared that if I dont react will end up loosing season in first 2 weeks.

        5 days, 22 hours ago

        Last time I checked most teams that scored good this GW was Salah(c) and the rest was a sea of 1,2,3 pointers from other players so I wouldn't panic.

        In fact it may be beneficial for us low-scorers cause it will lull them in the false sense of security.

    What we reckon united back 4 will be

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 33 mins ago

      WanB Lindelöf Maguire Shaw/Williams

  4. jai1212
    • 6 Years
    6 days, 51 mins ago

    Adams and Alli to Martial and Klich/Harrison?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 31 mins ago

      Adams better option than those cheap mids. Keep and get ManUtd mid

    What options looks best ?

    A. Werner>Martial

    C. Both for a hit
    D. Save ft

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      D

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 27 mins ago

      D for me, think DCL and Rich would be too much Everton and I wouldn't sell Werner after 1 game unless you planned to get Martial eventually regardless. If that is the case A to catch his rise

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 days, 23 mins ago

        problem is both ings and werner probably dropping this week

    3. Aubamewho

      I'm waiting for Werner update to do A.

  6. Thomas Magnum

    6 days, 47 mins ago

    Any Saliba or Vinagre owners here?
    if so are you guys holding or selling them this week?
    Already used my transfer and not sure whether its worth offloading to avoid being priced out, albeit for a hit.

    1. TH14 - INVINCIBLE
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 28 mins ago

      Holding Vinagre

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        6 days, 23 mins ago

        Not worried about the possibility of his price dropping?

        1. TH14 - INVINCIBLE
          • 5 Years
          6 days, 21 mins ago

          I think its way too early to be certain whether his position in the is solid or not. I think waiting and seeing is worth more than the slim chance of a price drop

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 25 mins ago

      Got Vinagre, just going to let him rot on the bench for a couple of weeks.

    3. Green Jumper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 23 hours ago

      Possibly Saliba > Holding to add to WC already played. Saliba value likely to drop and easy to reverse when he gets more minutes.

      1. Indpush
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 20 hours ago

        Holding Saliba and don't have Vinagrae

  7. BlackBus

    Saiss got 3 bonus points in the end, no Jimenez (2).

    2. ludaslol

      Who is the Most pressing issue or can I get away playing Alli, Bowen Havertz another week?

      Happy with my defence and forwards, absolutely hate my midfield already.

      Should I hit to get in Bruno?

      Thoughts???

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 days, 15 mins ago

        I've also got Havertz and Alli. Was ready to rage transfer them both out this morning but think I'll give them another week and save now, unless Alli plays more than 30 mins in Europe this week which probably means he'll be benched

        1. ludaslol
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 1 min ago

          yeah, if i'm somehow confident he'll start again sou i wont bother transfer him atleast

      2. Team Bobcat
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 14 mins ago

        You have a starting team and bench for the next day without making any transfer. That is a good start.

        I think Alli definitely starts the next day. No point in Mourinho holding onto him otherwise. Slap across the wrists I imagine.

        I would monitor Werner as he may have picked up a knock. Nothing but cramp and usual knock I imagine but a simple swap to Wilson would free up cash for next week and Werner might not do much against Liv anyway.

        I wouldn't rush for many more ManU assets just yet either as you have Martial.

        ManC assets are a little too expensive especially sterling and KDB without doing major surgery.

        Monitor Werner knock is all I advise. I would say swap Havertz but you need more cash.

        Maybe

        Hav Werner - Bruno Wilson

        1. ludaslol
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 days ago

          Yeah if we get news that Werner is probably out I prolly need to do something.

          Very valid points, I have some tinkering to do. If I knew everyone is starting/fit I think I would just save and make 3 transfers next week.

      3. Anneheim
          6 days, 13 mins ago

          Based on the matches I have seen, I do not like Either Havertz or Alli. I would suggest replacing either one with a 5.5 midfielder to get the Cash to upgrade the second one from Havertz/Alli to either Kdb/Bruno/Sterling.

      4. Gaffa914
        • 6 Years
        6 days, 42 mins ago

        Sterling vs De Bruyne, who do you prefer and why?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          6 days, 21 mins ago

          Season long KDB, if its short term or someone im planning on rotating in the squad with a 12 million or Bruno then Sterling

        2. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 14 mins ago

          Sterling. Can be more explosive. More of a differential I think. Little bit cheaper

        3. Jam0sh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 days, 6 mins ago

          Probably Sterling

        • 5 Years
        6 days, 42 mins ago

        I was considering Jimenez pre-season but went for Werner instead. I was also impressed by Saiss and am thinking of bringing him in for Egan as part of a pre-planned WC I've already made.
        The only thing that has stopped me is a sneaking suspicion that Michael Keane may have a great season with Everton:

        Who top scores from:
        1) Ramsdale, Pickford, Guaita
        2) Egan, Keane, Dunk

              Kdb, Willian and Bruno are the top three transfered in at this time.

              I imagine those without funds are taking a hit or two.

              Your call.

            I know it has only been one week, but Kai Havertz really looked like he will need some time to adapt to this new situation for him. Do we sell him now before pool, or hold and pray for a return vs West Brom?

              He looks real tired to me. Long old season he had. Just a wee young lad still growing.

                I agree. I am looking at James Rodriguez as his replacement. Think he got goals in him?

                  I'm giving him another week or 2. He was played out of position, probably exhausted with his move to the UK and still settling in. Easy trade to Pulisic if he doesn't settle

            Two defenders and a midfielder too get for 13.0 on my bench

              4.5 mid: Bissouma
              4.5 def: Lewis/Lamptey/KWP
              4 def Mitchell but will lose his spot or Buur looks interesting

            Hmmm not sure whether to captain Auba or Marty this week... I know most people here are going to say Auba but had I followed prevailing wisdom on here last week I would've captained Auba instead of Salah and look where that would've got me...

              I'll captain Auba, had him also this week as a C. Probably these to armbands will be the last for him this season. In GW he'll become Bruno/Sterling or KDB.
              p.s. Jel stvarno navijas za Partizan ? 🙂

                Naj ozbiljnije brate. Grobar do groba.

                Ja cu zadrzati Obamu jos jednu nedelju i cao brate ide i nikad se ne vraca. Nije on dosta reliable za moj ukus. A i ne volim Arsenal.

              Simple, do the opposite so to what you are being told here.

              Captain Auba I say.

              You are free now to (c) someone else now knowing he will fail..

                I think I probably will captain him this week because after getting 80 points last week I think I should consolidate my position considering he's so highly owned and most people will be captaining him. But I'll have a ponder

                It has got to be Salah now, I agree. Have to stick with Auba myself though.

                  Is this plan any good:
                  - This GW Kai to James Rodriguez and 1.0 itb
                  - Next GW Auba and Nketiah out for -4 and :
                  A) Bruno + Jimenez or
                  B) Rashford + Martial

                    B. I have Kai and he's just not worth 8.5 at this moment. Potentially there are a lot of better options for that price.

                  Relatively pleased with 52 from haphazardly planned ghost team, despite shipping out Salah TC, so I could have KDB instead.

                  Leaves me with Auba still captained, pleased Ryan didn't get sent off.

                  Do only Ings to Martial or worth going for Bruno - Son Ings and Bruno DCL ?
                  DCL looking good considering the Everton's fixtures

                      I have Ings and have enough to do Ings --> Martial but i have a feeling that Manutd vs Crystal palace won't be a high scoring game and Ings has good fixtures as well. I am going to save my FT

                    Excluding blocked shots, Kepa has conceded from nine of the last 13 overall shots on target he has faced in the Premier League. If only Salah shot on target more often.

                    I know people on here will advise against an early WC, but I just wanted to know when people are thinking they may be 'good for use' in future gameweeks.

                    Feel like I need to address some major issues so thinking about pulling the trigger

                      The simple answer is play it when you need to. There is no right or wrong time, it depends on your team.

                      Best time to use the WC is when you need to.

                      You will have to be the judge of that.

                      If you made a dogs dinner of your team already then pull the trigger for sure. Pick wisely

                      After holding onto my wildcard for too long in previous seasons this season I said I'll play it between GW6 and 9 unless I'm doing fantastically well and see no need to. Now I'm aiming to hold until after GW8 so I can use it in that international break when I have more info. I am not afraid to take a few hits in the meantime.
