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′).

      All of us before the season - “I plan to be more patient and take less hits this season...”
      After GW1 - “Hmmm, is this worth a -12 hit?”

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

        Same every year.

        Personally, I like that little green arrow I start with at the beginning of every GW when I haven't taken a hit.

      6. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        I only took a total of -16 last season. Planning to take more hits when i need to.

      7. teneighty
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        I actually planned to play more aggressive this season and take a few hits early on. But not taking any hits until GW3 because I want more data.

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years

          You have to pay for the delay.

            A risk I am willing to take.

                8 days, 1 hour ago

                With you on this one. So much scrambling to bring in city and united assets... Between pep roulette, and not having faith that united will hit the ground running I am ok waiting one more week. But knowing my luck KDB will haul, and Bruno will get 3 PKs.

        A) TAA & ASM > Digne & Greenwood for -4
        B) Salah & Adams > Rashford & Martial for -4
        C) TAA > Digne
        D) Save
        Or any other suggestions? Leaning towards A, could even switch it to AWB & JRod?

        What are people doing who own both Alli and Havertz?

        I have 0.5 itb

        A) Saving
        B) 2 transfers for a hit to get the likes of KDB/Bruno
        C) Other?

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          I would move Alli to Rodriguez and give Havertz another two weeks

          Or just bank it if you're not sold on James

          1. ludaslol
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 days, 2 hours ago

            James and Everton looked really good. I do have DCL already which might be a lil overkill but could also work out just fine.

        2. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          They are accepting the fact that they aren’t very good at this

        3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
          • 8 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          im.rid havertz until ziyech is back and havertz move behind werner

        4. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          You’d be better off taking a 4 point hit then having 8 mil Havertz doing nothing for several game weeks, if that’s what you believe will happen

          1. ludaslol
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 days, 2 hours ago

            By looking at the game it felt he need some games to settle in for sure. Looked really off pace. Not sure if Havertz> James is better or taking out Alli aswell so I can reach to Bruno

        5. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Crying, I imagine.

            Lots of crying.

          Monitoring.

          Looks like Alli will go down in price -0.1 tomorrow.

          Reluctant to take out though as I think he has a big haul in him with their fixtures.

          Also he has a superb record against Southampton - 5 goals and 4 assists in 8 games against them, 3 goals in 5 coming at St Marys.

          It's also worth bearing in mind that he won't be marked by Allan every week!

      10. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 8 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        Hate to do meaningless transfer because of price drop but has to do to maintain budget. Best Saliba replacement (no cash)?
        a) lewis
        b) Konsa
        c) Justin

        1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • 8 Years

            thanks. actually many more in price range but not having good fixture

        2. Paul Psychic Octopus

          Justin then Lewis.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          Yes

        2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
          • 8 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Can I ask why ?

        3. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          I would.

        4. Jullepuu
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          I would stick with Havertz if you have that 0.5 in the bank already

      12. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        If they moved back the deadline for early team news, then they should block the price rise/drop until all other games are finished.A 0.1m fluctuation on either side is very costly..And that being said:

        0.5itb

        Ings to martial for free?martial rise today?

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Not a bad suggestion. This is what some other games do e.g. Currant Bun Dream Team, UCL FF.

      13. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        I'd make the switch, though I don't think Martial will rise today. Tomorrow is more likely

      14. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        Been thinking whether to choose Martial or Bruno.
        Ings to Martial looks easy but leaves me with Son and it would be hard to do anything with him considering the price bracket, also don't want to be left with much ITB if I dwongrade him.

        Said that, Ings Son to DCL Bruno give me DCL for his nice run of fixtures, as well as Bruno as my only ManUtd player.

        Go for Bruno and DCL ?

        1. Malkmus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          I'd say yes as I have DCL and getting Bruno in. Are we sure that Bruno avoided quarantine on return from Portugal? I haven't seen anything either way...

        2. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Bruno is a beast and penalty takers already benefitting

        3. ZimZalabim
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          I have the same two players and was considering doing the same or maybe just Ings to DCL but tbh Im not sure that its a profitable move to spend 4 points when the two being sold can easily outscore the two coming in.

          Will be bringing an asset that we havent seen yet playing a team that looked quite decent defensively and their Keeper looks in form and a Striker that might not be the best asset from his team. Its still unclear if Rich or Hamez are better options than DCL. Likewise with United not clear who will hit the ground running, could easily be Martial or Rash.

          With the way saints play son could get space and score well, Likewise Ings could get space vs Spurs. If palace play a deep block and limit space vs united it could frustrate United.

          At the end I think the best decision for this week is to hold the transfer and if Ings and Son dont produce and DCL looks decent and United start well then can pull the trigger with that added information.

        Best combo next few gw's

        A: Son + DCL
        B: Son + Adams + 2FT's next gw
        C: Bruno + Adams
        D: Rashford + DCL (-4)
        E: James + Martial (-4)

        1. linkafu
          • 1 Year

          E

        2. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          D, but only a hunch that people are underestimating Rashford.

      16. Stand By Mee
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        How long do you expect these defenders to keep starting?
        Which one is more likely to be dropped first?

        A) Mitchell
        B) Justin
        C) Struijk

        1. Lukakus Unit
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          - Mitchell will play until PvA is ready.
          - Justin will play for awhile (even when Pereira comes back, Fuchs is out and he can be moved to LB)
          - No idea on Struijk, but Leeds will concede a lot

        2. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Justin is already playing LB, and he did the same last season as well.

        Martial on 84.4 on FPL Statistics. Really wanted to wait until the end of the week but looks like I'm gonna have to pull the trigger tonight/tomorrow. Presume that's the same for a lot of people

        1. shirtless
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Yes I’m considering for Werner. Vinagre only at 53% the other way.

      18. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        White, Pulisic and Werner are flagged while Vinagre sits on the bench

        Ik Werner is probably fine and the latter two are on me but that's rough

        1. The Gambler.
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          White looked ok when he came off

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 days, 2 hours ago

            Hope he is

        2. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Werner will be fine.

      19. Lukakus Unit
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        Swapped Salah for Bruno.

        Was pretty sure Salah would do well last week - home game against a promoted squad - but unfortunately I thought Aubameyang would do better (although, tbh, he did actually play better than Salah IMO).

        For next week:
        a) Salah has never played well against his former team
        b) Salah doesn't have the greatest points record away from Anfield.
        c) 3 out of Liverpool's next four are on the road (including Chelsea), and the home game is to Arsenal.

        Thoughts?

        1. wilson007
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Bruno is obviously quality but Salah is so selfish and driven by goals/shooting that I think it is hard to ever go without him.

        2. Christophe Savage
          • 5 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          You’ve convinced yourself and that’s all that matters.

          I want to see Utd and city in action before I move.

        3. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          I think that’s wishful thinking, Salah is just as likely to 6-10 points as Bruno

        4. Malkmus
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 1 hour ago

          I think you need both.

      20. shirtless

        • 9 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        Didn’t take a single hit last season, and yet here I am considering Vinagre Werner Adams > Saïss Martial DCL. Have the exact money! Team sorted in one swoop. Bosh!

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          Saiss has City. Can wait a week.

          1. PascalCygan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 2 hours ago

            Agree. And consider Werner's lovely fixtures after GW2...

            How about just the -4 then for Martial and DCL? Looks good to me. Immediate good fixtures hopefully profits. 0.5 to get someone for Vin next week.

        My plan was Salah and Ings to Bruno and Martial, but now I wanna get rid of Alli but then cant get Bruno.
        Should I stick with the plan. I won't captain Salah atleast 2 two weeks and we got two penalties..

        A) Salah and Ings >> Bruno and Martial
        B) Alli and Ings >> Jrod and Martial

          Bruno had a preseason?
          Been away, birth of child, late arriving back compared to others

          Possible can get away with not having him this week.

          Bruno could be a risk. He only reported back to the training ground last weekend and didn't play in the friendly vs. Villa. People are underestimating van der Beek, who could easily start over Bruno this weekend or at least share his minutes.

        Which combo?

        A) Robbo + Bissouma (safe)
        Or
        B) James + Foden (bit risky and gives benching headaches some weeks)

          Johnstone clean sheets incoming?

            • 3 Years
            8 days, 2 hours ago

            I have him actually. Pretty dissapointed as someone mentioned his pen save record and didn't get a save from two tries. Hoping for saves myself, a cs is a nice bonus.

        2. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 2 hours ago

          West Brom 20/21 squad is pretty much just an average fpl team from 15/16 season.

        3. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Wonder if they will price him at 5.0 for old time's sake

          1. Pukki Party
            • 3 Years
            8 days, 2 hours ago

            7.0 probably

        Moura->Grealish for a hit?

        1. wilson007

          No, no and no.

      26. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        For -8?

        Son + ASM + Nketiah

        to

        Pogba + Harrison + DCL

      27. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 2 hours ago

        Johnstone
        KWP Dallas Justin
        Salah Auba KDB Bruno
        Wilson Mitrovic Bamford

        Should have started with this team structure.

        1. wilson007

          Obviously the midfield is unreal but I don't like the balance.

        3. Paul Psychic Octopus

          8 days, 1 hour ago

          You would be better playing 4-3-3 if you insist on that midfield. Or even 5-3-2.

        Not FPL’s fault but the Manchester Assets now rising after the blank puts a real question mark on transfers planned for GW3-4

        .5 in the bank needed I guess

        I'm not one to pour scorn on the template (my team, although I came to it independently, looks very template) but it is annoying to see how the kind of teams we've put together with some thought on here are essentially getting copied and used elsewhere.

        A lot of mini leagues I'm in have people towards the top with teams they obviously copy-pasted from FPL preview pieces.

        I do find it a bit weird that official FPL channels are so eager to spoonfeed to that extent. Sure, keep people engaged but it seems a bit much sometimes, and then places like the BBC and newspapers rip off those videos or articles from this site, then the tips get spread further and further...

        Hopefully those who've been spoonfed to an early lead will just start falling away when they have one bad week.

        Sorry, rant over! Don't mean to come across as bitter!

        My original plan was Ings to Martial but other things seem more pressing. Best move of these please?

        A Ings to Martial
        B Havertz to Rodriguez
        C Ings, Havertz to Martial, Rodriguez

        United could have as many as 11 players listed as doubtful for this weekends opener.

        Pogba, Matic, Mata, Fred, AWB and Eric Bailly only returned to training on Monday while Bruno is among those who only recently rejoined the group.

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years

          If they're training, they'll play.

            It's how well they play that I'd be concerned about

        2. Seanigula

        Anyone else struggling to not do Auba to KDB just because of the price rise? I hate having 0.4 in the bank but it means taking a -4 hit as I already have done Son to Bruno.

        1. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          8 days, 1 hour ago

          Everyone freaks out about every 0.1 ...at some point there will be some great cheaper option (like Willian instead of Aub) that will save you millions and make up for a few losses

          In FPL you use money to buy points. The reverse is sacrificing points to save a bit of money.
