Scout Reports

Can Watkins transform Aston Villa attack and offer FPL points potential?

Ollie Watkins (£6.0m) landed at Villa Park last week for a club record fee of £28m, and could be the answer to many of their problems. Could he help Fantasy Premier League managers out as well?

The 24-year-old, who scored 26 goals in the Championship last term, has penned a five-year contract, and is in line to make his Premier League debut in Gameweek 2, when Aston Villa entertain Sheffield United.

Villans boss Dean Smith had been desperate to sign a new striker, and rightly so. Villa’s forwards contributed a meagre six league goals between them last season, and just two, via Wesley (£6.0m) and Mbwana Samatta (£6.0m), in 2020. 

Upon signing, Smith said of his new recruit:

“Ollie has developed into one of the most sought-after strikers in the country and we are looking forward to seeing him show his great qualities in an Aston Villa shirt. He is a hugely determined character who has both the ability and personality to succeed at the highest level.” – Dean Smith

Priced up at £6.0m by FPL, Watkins will be hoping to build on that stunning 26-goal campaign in the top tier, but for Fantasy managers, is he a viable option for our forward lines, and if so, when might be the optimum time to invest?

In this new Scout Report, we’ll attempt to answer those questions, and assess his credentials ahead of his debut.

History and Statistics

Newton Abbot-born Watkins started his career at Exeter City, where he progressed through the academy ranks. 

Having impressed for the under-18 side, a first-team debut followed in 2014, but it was a successful loan spell at Weston-super-Mare when he started turning heads, scoring 10 goals in 25 appearances for the Conference South side.

“He has a lot of talent, he could run with the ball superbly with both feet and could do the bread and butter stuff very well. His talent eventually shone through and it’s proven to be the case at Exeter. He’s got speed and as well as playing up front, is very competent on the wing. You can also play him through the middle due to his great first touch. We played a 3-4-3 formation and he played in that top three. He was very flexible and offered us so many options.” – Former Weston-super-Mare manager, Ryan Northmore

Once back at Exeter, Watkins kicked on and racked up 21 league goals across the following two seasons, which was enough for Brentford to make their move. Signed for a fee thought to be just under £2m, Watkins was initially used as a wide forward, where he scored 10 goals in each of his first two seasons. 

However, it will undoubtedly be the 2019/20 campaign he’ll be remembered for most. 

After the sale of Neal Maupay (£6.5m) to Brighton and Hove Albion, Watkins made the switch to a central striking role. The change worked wonders, as Watkins finished joint-top scorer in the Championship with 26 goals, with Brentford only narrowly missing out on promotion to the Premier League. 

Amazingly, every single one of those 26 goals came from open play and when you exclude penalties, Watkins scored more league goals than any other player in English football last season. 

“I normally call him the beast. He’s a remarkable player and person. He’s so dedicated. Of course, he wants to be top scorer, but that’s not his main aim. He’s so dedicated to improve every single day, so he’s a coach’s dream because of course we want to focus on little details. We’ve been working very hard on his positions and how to run in the box and the link up play. Overall, he’s just improved massively as a player and also as part of the leading group. He’s driving the team. Look out there how hard he works – it’s a joy to have a striker like that. He’s one of the hardest, if not the hardest working offensive player in the league, and he’s also the top scorer. That’s not a bad combination.” – Brentford manager, Thomas Frank

Now at Villa, Watkins will be reunited with Smith, who signed him from Exeter City when he was Brentford manager, with the player adding:

“I am so excited to join Aston Villa and to reunite with Dean Smith as my Head Coach. I cannot wait to wear the famous claret and blue in the Premier League. I want to do something special here and score some goals.” – Ollie Watkins

Profile

Watkins is 5ft 11, and is used to leading the line having been deployed as a lone striker in a 4-3-3 at Brentford. 

He is quick, strong and extremely hard-working, and is best summed up as a complete forward, who is equally comfortable running the channels, or dropping deep to link play.

When looking at Watkins shot map from 2019/20, what shines through is that the vast majority of his shots came inside the area, while the breakdown of last season’s goals also backs up his all-rounder tag: 16 were scored from inside the penalty area, eight from inside the six-yard box, with two coming from long-range. 

He is also capable with both feet – he netted 10 with his right-foot, seven with his left-foot and eight with his head. 

That heading stat is worth noting, considering Villa finished sixth in the Premier League for crosses last season, with 798, behind only Manchester City, Liverpool, Sheffield United, Chelsea and Everton.

It didn’t take long for Watkins to convert from a cross either, as he scored the winning goal in Saturday’s 1-0 friendly victory over Manchester United, with a diving header from Trézéguet’s (£5.5m) delivery. He also opened the scoring against Burton Albion on Tuesday night.

His fitness in recent seasons is also a huge positive. Brentford played 46 league matches last term, plus three more in the play-offs, with Watkins playing every single match and missing just 10 minutes throughout. The season before he missed just five league games, and a single fixture the campaign before that. 

Prospects

The prospect of seeing Watkins line up alongside Jack Grealish (£7.0m) is exciting.

Last season, barring Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m), no player created more chances than Grealish, while as a team, Villa ranked sixth for chances created, with 369, and tenth for shots (456). The issue was that they only managed 41 goals.

If Watkins can start converting some of those Grealish chances, then you’d expect Villa to push on and avoid another relegation battle this season.

Adjusting to Villa’s system shouldn’t take long, with both Brentford and Villa favouring a 4-3-3, while his position in the starting XI is also secure, as he will immediately move ahead of Samatta, Keinan Davis (£4.5m) and Wesley in the pecking order. Essentially, it will be his place to lose.

So, when might be the ideal time to invest?

I’ve seen some suggest Gameweek 9, but I think we should be looking at Gameweek 6 when Villa have six home ties in 10 matches, against Leeds United, Southampton, Brighton and Hove Albion, Newcastle United, Burnley and Crystal Palace. 

Add in a couple of decent looking away trips to West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion, and I think this run of fixtures looks pretty appealing.

Villa’s fixtures from Gameweeks 6 to 15

Villa have been crying out for a clinical finisher who is able to score with his head and feet ever since Tammy Abraham (£7.5) returned to Chelsea in the summer of 2019, and in Watkins, I think they may well have found their man.

That being said, the Premier League is a completely different level to the Championship, so some caution is required. 

Nevertheless, FPL managers have reason to be excited with Watkins coming in at just £6.0m. 

Right now, I’d suggest scouting him over the next few weeks, and if progressing as I expect him too, make a move ahead of Gameweek 6.

His statistics from the last campaign certainly suggest he should be able to make an immediate impression, and if he were to hit around 12 league goals this season, I think that would be deemed a success, and would no doubt go a long way towards helping Villa avoid another season languishing near the bottom of the table.

    Here's an example of why A and B questions are pointless.
    In a bit of a fpl panic last night (with a predicted Bruno rise) I asked

    Pulisic and Ings to
    A) Bruno and Wilson
    B) Rodriguez and Martial

    B won easily, I assume everyone just thought fixture wise it's better. Fine then but they're not spending time thinking bout the nuances of my team strategy and to be fair, why should they?
    If I did Pulisic to Rodriguez with my 1ft then is Ings to Martial really worth a hit when Ings will be facing a travel weary Spurs team in poor form?
    Doing A means I now have a good gw2 captain and also it suits my team structure better becsuse will want Pulisic back sooner rather than later.
    No one puts the thought into your team that you do so own your own decisions

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I think there is a strong element of confirmation bias we are seeking when asking A or B questions. We know the answer we really want deep down but just want to be able to put it on someone else if it goes wrong.

    2. dshv
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I am with bruno and wilson

    3. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      So you should have had C - make my own decision

      1. Rhinos
        • 7 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        the C button would get worn out very quickly

    4. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Yep - completely pointless.

      The influx of these questions as the deadline looms baffles me

      Plus what audit is completed on the response - a check of game week history rank, time on the forum

    5. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not sure how one fairly even match constitutes form for Spurs.

      "No one puts the thought into your team that you do so own your own decisions"

      Excellent point.

      1. Rhinos
        • 7 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        agree bout form point is be happy ro start Ings

    6. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      You can post your whole team combined with the question.
      Own your own question of course but sometimes we all need to hear other peoples thoughts.

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Yeh doesn't work. I used to post my team and thought process but realized I very rarely got any responses when I did that.

    7. TheBrazilianRonaldo
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Bruno didn’t rise. Or KDB. I’d prefer Bruno whatever the other player.

    8. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I disagree. Feedback is given and it’s up to you to process. Yes the quality of feedback is key but A and B gives you more chance to get more responses due to time to spent to read the questions. Fair enough if you don’t like it.

    9. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      B

  2. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Any reasons for holding Havertz?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Plenty. A week of teamwork, quality players coming back (Pulisic over RLC will make a heck of a difference). May be up to his best GW3 but senseless to ship him out only to get him back a week or two later.

    2. Better Call Paul
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Think he needs time to settle

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Looked scared and mentally weak. Thats a lot worse than looking unfit or lazy to me, could see him taking weeks or months to come good

      1. Better Call Paul
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Agreed maybe a few GWs at least price tag gone to his head? Who knows

      2. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        And I think Frank has balls to bench Havertz if he thinks more training etc is needed.

      3. Siva Mohan
        • 8 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        scared? 😀

        back from long holiday and trained with team for 4 days .. new league etc .. he ain't a Messi

    4. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Why did you pick him in the first place if you wont give him more than one game? The quality is there but it's a new team, tactics and league.

    5. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      If I do ditch it'll be to pulisic so holding until I at least see hes ready to start. No point replacing a placeholder with a placeholder

    6. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Cheers everyone

  3. Ginkapo FPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Watkins is a filthy cheating diver. Wont react well to VAR

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      VAR not used in League Cup?

  4. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    6.0 for Watkins seems a steal. Deffo an option for a cheap forward line while loading the midfield

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      From gw6 looks nice

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Certainly an option for me if Callum Wilson dries up. Not diving in though.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        I was thinking along with wilson with just Werner as an expensive forward

        1. George Agdgdgwngo
          • 11 Years
          9 days, 3 hours ago

          Would rather have Werner, Wilson and DCL

    3. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I wonder if Watkins and Bruno beats Martial and Barnes.

  5. L'Aeroplanino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Tempted to do Werner -> Jimmy GW3 and rearrange the 1m, Jimmy can easily outscore Werner with that fixtures till GW9

    1. Better Call Paul
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I wouldn’t say easily I think despite no goal GW Werner looks like a threat to goal

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      But can you get Werner back when he explodes and his price surges?

    3. Kabayan
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      If you need the fund why not but Che has wba - CRY - SOU from 3 to 5.

    4. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Werner looked brilliant!
      Pulisic and Ziyech will have a lot more quality.
      If he was played in early by RLC or Barkley on fairly easy passes, we would've been talking about a brace and an assist in GW1

  6. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Nothing like a couple hits to get your season going 🙂

  7. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Some nice signings by Villa and to come. You must be optimistic about your season?

    1. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Yep. Rashica would finish off a very productive transfer window if Villa can get him

  8. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Anyone else interested in knowing rather sooner than later if this "each match has its own timeslot" is going to continue in October and at the same time waiting for October's broadcasting schedules? I think last year the whole autumn was preplanned almost until Christmas holidays but I might be wrong.

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      October TV games were supposed to be announced on Friday last week. Am guessing with the uncertainty around whether limited crowds can watch in grounds soon they are waiting as late as possible.

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      It will continue as long as they prefer people to stay at home rather than be out and about at weekends. Covid vs Economy

  9. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Watched the Villa game last night, Ollie seemed to be linking up nicely with Grealish, could be a very exciting partnership for FPL points.

    1. Schliegs
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Yeah 100% very keen for that

  10. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    In a moment someone else is going to remember Grealish exists 🙂

    Immediate fixtures not great but some decent ones and a perfect week 3 in there and he now has someone to aim for.

    Watkins perhaps but Grealish perhaps better? Watkins should improve him and he was already handy enough anyway. Factoring GI here and improved cs bonus count

    Price the issue but 7.0 mid is a fantastic slot. All these have a good reason to like. Worth the 1.0 mill over those dicey 6.0s imo. Get the dicey 7,0 instead 😀

    Grenwoodwood
    Foden
    Barnes
    Zaha
    Hamez
    Grealish

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Definitely looking to get Jack in at some point

    2. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Do you not think the likes of Watkins and Wood can offer better value than these mids?

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        That’s the one slot in my strategic plan that I’m least sure of

        Just think the quality in midfield is higher and I’d be happier to hold longer there - switching less. The trouble with 6.0 forwards for me is I regard every FT there as a minus 4 in a non optimal slot - haul chasing territory.

        Prefer Jim Ings/Martial right now in theory as my value long term forwards - think they’ll produce again and be best value again

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Watkins better value I reckon

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Known quantity against unknown right now. And if Watkins is value then Grealish value - already ok - improves?

        Value point fair though. But right now prefer 7.0 mid variations to the 6.0 forwards.

    4. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I'll need to see them do something against a better team than burton

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Fulham around the corner

    5. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Definitely got an eye on Grealish

    6. TheBrazilianRonaldo
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      I got Doucoure for the same reasons. Good other players create upside in talented people around them.

      I’d pick whichever worked in my team structure / strategy.

  11. Jems Reds
    • 4 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Got Dele at the moment, do I keep or shift him to Barnes?

    Wanted to save my free transfer to have two next week to get City/United cover.

  12. BNMC
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Are transfers on a WC, FH, or new account factored into a price change? Someone could, in theory, buy and sell the same player over and over again thousands of times...

    1. Kabayan
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Nope I believe

  13. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Is it worth selling Pulisic if it meant it was for a -4?

    I was expecting a 2 pointer vs Liverpool anyway, so thinking to just leave him in and have Reece james off the bench worst case with the hope Pulisic plays GW3 and hauls?

    1. Schliegs
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      If you can hold do it. I have a pretty shitty bench and Vinagre aswell so feel like taking a hit and bringing in Hames + Digne to try and beat the pack. If you can hold do it, he could go large vs WBA.

  14. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    I’m thinking about going with 2 Villa goalkeepers If Martinez signs.
    Who will be backup ? Steer or Nyland?

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      No one really knows
      Nyland started in the cup last night

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Steer before Nyland

    3. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Steer. Nyland looking to be sold. Ofc when Heaton is back, its different story

    4. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Will Martinez be first choice over Heaton ?

    Who do we think is the best pick out of Pulisic or Havertz? Havertz seems to have a lot of love but personally he will still need time to adjust to the PL.

    1. Siva Mohan

      Puli

    I really like Watkins, the team - mainly Grealish - do create chances for their center forward, from the Villa matches I've seen. A massive upgrade on paper to Davis and Samatta, that GW9-28 stretch looks very appealing for FDR. If he looks good I'll pick him up on WC, am confident he'll do well.

      If you were on a WC this week? Would you get Martial and Barnes or Watkins and Bruno?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Watkins and Fernandes for sure. I really like Bruno, United should still get 10+ penalties and he should do extremely well with that tally.

    Morning dzzz, did Son/Adams >> James/Martial last night even though I could afford Son > Bruno. Bit a risky/unnecessary move but Hope it works out long term

    McCarthy
    Taa Justin Ayling — Lamptey Vinagre
    Salah Auba James ASM — Bissouma
    Werner Martial Mitrovic

    Main reasons against having Bruno + Adams was that i didn’t want to have 3 x 6m players with little flexibility to move

      Can't have them all. Nice team.

      could do well but spurs didnt look great

    3. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      no need to. have him is already a differential for gw2.

  23. TH14 - INVINCIBLE

    Chances of Vinagre starting for Wolves? Or is Marcal starter

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      lost hope after Marcal started as a LWB .. it's his place to lose now

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Yeah think the dream is dead

      Got Ayling starting this week and hoping Leeds can get something going defensively so I can keep him in and not make a transfer, might have to do bavies to Saïss to cover wolves

    Front 3 of Werner Vardy and Adams. Do I leave these 3 for this gw and give Vardy another week or do Vardy to Martial????
    Can help thinking our Tony may blank this gw. Thoughts on the above??

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Good fixture for Vardy id keep

    2. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      with the same front 3.
      I am probably getting Rich for Vardy

  25. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Not the best first gw... Quite stubborn and gut says save FT but concerned about Pulisic... Great fixture in gw3 though. Hoping Barnes has another good game but actually hauls this time

    Mccarthy
    TAA Doh Egan
    Aubam Pulisic Barnes ASM
    Werner Ings martial
    (Nyland, Burke, Mitchell, KWP)

    A) Save FT
    B) Pulisic to Rodriguez
    C) Other

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      A if it sounds like Puli will start
      Otherwise B

    Just in: Sergio Reguilon to Tottenham, here we go soon! The agreement has been reached on last few hours with Real Madrid for €30m as final fee. Reguilon agreed personal terms with Spurs and accepted to join also after talks with #MUFC. Only paperworks to be signed. ⚪️

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years

      *with a buy back clause

      as a Davies owner I don't want this transfer to happen

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Yeah, didn't need this. Hope Davies plays a couple more GWs

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Davies joining Werner, White, Vinagre and Puli smh

      Very exciting for Spurs

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Tottenham have conceded to Real Madrid BOTH clauses they’ve asked for Reguilon: buy back and pre-emption.
      #MUFC have always refused any clause to bring back the player - it was the main issue. ⚪️

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        9 days, 3 hours ago

        Pre-emption? As in if Spurs get an offer, Madrid are allowed to match it if accepted?

        1. Siva Mohan
          • 8 Years
          9 days, 3 hours ago

          Yes

          • 8 Years
          9 days, 3 hours ago

    2. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Fraser at 6? Or Watkins/Adams better value?

  28. Daniel Exeter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Is this the year of the 433?

    With strikers available as mids making it impossible to have everyone, and some good budget strikers available.
    Is the 5m or even 5.5m 4th defender better than the 5m or 5.5m mid?

    i.e.
    Gabriel
    Saiss
    Castagne
    Shaw
    Chilwell
    Silva

    Going to get more points than the likes of:

    Soucek
    ASM
    Saka
