Scout Notes

Can £4.0m defender Kilman nail down starting place in Wolves defence?

Leeds 0-1 Wolves

  • Goals: Raúl Jiménez (£8.5m)
  • Assists: Max Kilman (£4.0m)
  • Bonus points: Kilman x3, Jiménez x2, Romain Saïss x1 (£5.2m)

A View to a Kil

Max Kilman (£4.0m) has made a meteoric rise to the top of the budget defender pool with a second successive start and second successive points haul.

The Wolves centre-back has only played two from a possible five matches this season but has already scored 21 points, the joint-most of any defender priced at £4.5m or below.

Incredibly, the player has secured maximum bonus points in each of his two performances so far and he added an assist in the 1-0 win over Leeds.

“He deserves (the man of the match award). He’s been brilliant. He’s been with us for years. He’s listened. He’s a great lad. He gives us a bit of balance on that left-hand side. All the time. He loves having battles with Adama. Nobody goes near Adama in training but he full-on fights with him.” – Conor Coady

“He has become stronger as time has gone by. I’m proud of the response he has given and the credit goes to him. When the chance comes, you have to respond, and Max did that.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

The question facing Fantasy managers is now whether or not Kilman can nail down a regular starting berth in the Wolves side.

Even though he has been praised by captain and manager alike, unfortunately, it is difficult to say with certainty that Kilman will retain his place. This particular issue certainly one that requires more data.

The reason why Kilman has enjoyed starts in each of the last two Gameweeks is that regular centre-back option Romain Saïss (£5.2m) has been forced to cover the left wing-back role in light of injuries to Jonny (£5.4m) and Marçal (£4.9m) as well as the departure of Ruben Vinagre (£4.3m).

With the arrival of Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m) and Marçal returning from his knock on Monday night, there are more options for Nuno Espirito Santo to choose from in that position moving forward.

While Saïss has enjoyed his time bombing forward as a wing-back, which we’ll highlight in more detail shortly, he has looked exposed at times playing in a wider role, caught out by the pacier wingers and full-backs.

Therefore, with left wing-back reinforcements on the way, Nuno looks set for a tough decision between Saïss or Kilman to start in the back-three alongside Conor Coady (£5.0m) and Willy Boly (£5.5m) long-term.

Do as the Romains do

While there remain uncertainties about Wolves best back-five, Saïss continues to offer excellent value for his increasing ownership.

Nuno’s men have kept a clean sheet in three of their five matches this season, and the Moroccan has walked away with bonus points on each of those occasions, even though he only has one attacking return to his name. A total of six in that department puts Saïss behind only Lucas Digne (£6.2m) on seven among defenders after five Gameweeks.

That has taken him to a tally of 31 points for the season thus far, more than any other defender and sure to induce more price rises ahead of home meetings with Newcastle and Crystal Palace.

Saïss was unfortunate not to walk away with attacking returns at Elland Road, whose incredible rifled effort into the bottom right-hand corner of Illan Meslier‘s (£4.5m) goal was chalked off for an offside in the build-up.

He was also denied an assist in the first half when Leeds’ youthful goalkeeper produced an impressive stop from a Daniel Podence (£5.6m) effort.

However, while Saïss has looked exciting in the last two matches, we have to bring Wolves’ selection dilemma at the back into the conversation. If Aït-Nouri or Marçal slots in at left wing-back against Newcastle and Saïss returns to the back-three, he will almost certainly enjoy much less time in the opposition half.

Dear Podence

Podence owners were asked to show a little more patience once again as he proved one of Wolves’ most dangerous players at Elland Road but came away with a second successive blank.

His powerful first-half shot forced an impressive save out of Meslier, who sprawled to stop a left-footed curling effort in the second half too.

While neither of those chances went in, the fact that a Newcastle that has conceded seven goals in the last two Gameweeks is up next for Wolves is perhaps enough to hold Podence. 

That said, he was replaced by Adama Traoré (£6.4m) in the 64th minute with Pedro Neto‘s (£5.5m) involvement continuing until the 89th.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Dallas, Struijk (Hernández 75′), Koch, Ayling; K Phillips; Harrison (Raphinha 82′), Rodrigo, Klich, Costa (Poveda-Ocampo 71′); Bamford.

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Kilman, Coady, Boly; Saïss, Moutinho (Neves 82′), Dendoncker, Semedo; Neto (Marçal 89′), Jiménez, Podence (Traoré 65′).

      Justin for a safe and sound 4.5 def from either burnley, villa or what ever. Then you have a long term fourth def which you can play when ever needed

      Quite similar to my team but I have PVA instead of lamptey and zaha instead of watkins.

      I have almost the same team. Not sure on Watkins yet, but could be with a shot

  3. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Semedo + Reguilon is a bit too punty for me. Any cash ITB to downgrade one to a 4.5 and upgrade the other to Robbo? The rest is pretty template.

    Would you rather eat a poo flavoured chocolate or a chocolate flavoured poo?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Tough choice.

      1. The Big Fella

        1 month, 9 days ago

        Not really I would say

    2. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years

      what does the rest of the team look like?

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Lindelof, Maguire, De Gea, Pogba.......

    3. gart888
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      It depends on how strong the flavouring is for each.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Very pooey and very chocolatey

    4. Gnu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Bit of a no-brainer really.
      One's a poo, one's chocolate.
      Forgot the flavouring, I ain't eating poo.

      1. Gnu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Plus, I have no idea what poo tastes like, it might be nice.

        1. The Big Fella
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Give it a try mate - variety is the spice of life. Especially if they'd had a vindaloo the night before

          1. Gnu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Reckon it had to be curry.

      2. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        My 6 year old niece arrived to the same conclusion. I am not sure how adults pause for thought with this.

        1. Gnu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I'm as smart as a 6 year old then

          I think that's a good thing. 🙂

          1. The Big Fella
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            And it took you just 11 years on here to get there. Well done mate!

    5. jaguar shark

      A. 100%

  5. The Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    I think this is it for WC. What do you think?

    Martinez
    Robbo Targett Balbuena
    Sterling Bruno Salah Trossard
    Kane Watkins Brewster

    Button Jorginho Mitchell Kilman

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Barkley over Trossard. Villa are over-performing defensively, Martinez and two attackers is the optimum, take Targett out.

    2. Kloppen Schloppen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      No Everton? Doesn’t feel correct

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        How about this?

        Martinez
        Robbo Lascelles Balbuena
        Sterling Bruno Salah Son
        DCL Watkins Brewster

        Button Jorginho Mitchell Kilman

    3. Usmanov
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      You could downgrade Bruno to Rodriguez and upgrade Jorginho to Grealish. That'd give a nice 3-5-2 with Brewster on the bench

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        This all day.

    4. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Not sure I’d start Brewster yet

  6. Nice to Finally Michu
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Rudiger at 4.6 will be tasty at some point

    1. slavkob
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah when he signs a contract

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Not until he apologises to Frank for sleeping with his wife.

  7. gart888

    RMT, on a WC

    Martinez - (Steer)
    Robbo - Chilwell - Kilman - (Ayling) - (KWP)
    Salah(C) - Son - Hamez - Zaha - Grealish
    Kane - DCL - (Brewster)

    1. Kloppen Schloppen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Similar to mine. I prefer city players over the other 2 in midfield. Personal preference is to remove Robbo

      1. gart888
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Which city players would you be looking at? I had both KDB and Foden before my wildcard, but wanted off that wild ride.

    Hi Guys

    Would you keep Werner on a WC

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Reyson
      • 4 Years

      yes

    2. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope

    3. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Upgrade to Kane

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Maybe but only if you can fit him in along with Salah, Kane, Son, Rodriguez and DCL. Maybe possible with Soucek 4th mid?

  9. Kloppen Schloppen

    2. The Units

      Looks good.

    3. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Personally don’t like the fact you have to play one of Brewster or Soucek each week (until GW9 at least when Soucek looks viable).

      Based on his debut and the managers comments I really don’t see Brewster getting many points on the foreseeable future (I could be wrong of course!)

  10. Chelsea91

    Martinez
    Robbo,PVA,Chilwell

        Quite similar to mine, my only concern is whether pva will start. But i will save the team, if pva never start dallas can come in.

        1. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years

          I think PVA will start , yes if he not start Dallas will come in

        Choosing GW6 captain will be a hard choice some very good fixture for the top boys.

        Liverpool vs. Sheffield
        Tottenham vs. Burnley
        Everton vs. Southampton(probably)

        which one is worse Sheffield or Burnley?

        Cpt. who? Salah, Mane, Son, Kane or even DCL

        some hard decision to make

        Good evening everyone, thoughts on team?

        Going to bring in Grealish, Barkley or McGinn this week in place of Pereira, any suggestions on which one and why?

        Martinez

        Anything to do with this team except GK?

        Pickford
        Semedo Lamptey Justin (Ayling) (Mitchell)
        Bruno Foden Salah Son (Bissouma)
        Kane Maupay DCL

        What sort of manager are you?

        Imagine there are the following 2 players both with exactly the same Expected points for the coming game week and the exact same distribution of expected points (ie equally as likely to get a huge haul), which do you transfer in?

        A) Player A - effective ownership for the gameweek of 100%+
        B) Player B - effective ownership for the gameweek of 10%

        Does your OR at the time impact your decision?

          Ownership and OR makes 0 impact on my decisions. I'll look to other factors to see which I believe will score more points and pick him. Can't really pick b/w A and B based on ownership and OR.

          Last one is often Key to your first 2 questions. And it depends on your while team also, is that spot one you have for safe template or do you use that for your diff spot? I bought in sterling when every body got Kdb in, but it was not about ownership it was about points this time and i felt that he was very handy with those fixtures that were to come. But i have had similar decisions going the other way too. I like to also look at fixture for those teams involved. And try to crack which one gave the best, not in terms og color but my own interpretation. Like say, Ings away to Everton sounds tougher than kane away at burnley but my guess is that Everton game will be very open while burnley close so Ings could be in for points than kane despite what looks like a garder one.

        Would you be happy with playing 1 of Justin and KWP every week for now or would you try to use an FT to get a Villa defender?

        Pereira isn't back for 6 weeks so Justin is safe for now but Leicester defence doesn't look that good..

          He’s under some threat. Marcal will get opportunities, and if Kilman keeps playing as well as he has the past two matches, it’s Saiss who could miss out.

        Chelsea's new defensive signings Chilwell,Mendy and Thiago Silva started 2 games together and they kept CS in both!

        Having missed the Martinez boat so far and with him headed for another rise, I might consider Mendy as an alternative GK..

        1. Flair

          Silva's having a strong impact on them, just as expected. Brilliant player!

        Mane's non penalty xG by far the highest among all midfielders, interesting. >1 more than second highest Son and >1.65 more than Salah, whose stats have been inflated by that triple penalty party. Salah's assist threat is higher by far though. Mane (C) certainly looks explosive, especially considering Liverpool focus most of their attack down the left.

          Have you also checked out the defensive stats for Liverpool's next 4 opponents? Very favourable for Mane if you put any stock in number of chances conceded from different sides. In fact, Sheffield United's number of shots conceded from their right is the highest in the league of any team for any section of the pitch. West Ham a similar story. It's certainly food for thought.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Wow, thanks for this. Chances conceded from the left means opposition right, correct? Had it the other way around.

            Seems like Sheffield United conceded most of their chances from their right side while the majority of Liverpool's play goes down the left with Robertson and Mane linking up. That perfectly sets up a Mane haul! Feeling a lot better about him as (C) now.

            1. Samir16
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Oh wow these are great underlying stats but surely a salah to mane swap with a -4 point hit wouldn't be worth it right?

                  Not a chance lol. I still expect Salah to score and swapping between Salah and Mane is a recipe for disaster. Keep one and stick with them. Salah at Anfield is a monster and I wouldn't remove him, especially for a -4.

                  Definitely wouldn't make the swap (especially for a hit), but I currently have neither and will be moving for Mane (C) this week as my FT.

                    Exact same here, can't afford Salah but Mane could be even better as my KDB replacement.

                Yes that's correct. So Sheffield United right side defence chances conceded, meaning Liverpool left side attack (Mane).

                  I've Robbo and tempted to do Pulisic to Mane on FT as I've no Liv mid either

                    Wouldn't be against it but worth mentioning that Man United are also statistically the worst defensive team in the league so far. And their own right side also appears to be a weakness. So there's every chance Pulisic has his breakout performance this GW. I could actually this being the highest scoring game.

Already have son in the team but want to double up for next 3 gameweeks. After these 3 easy games I'll move son out for a 9mil mid possibly rashford or someone cheaper like grealish.

                    Okay so problem with saiss is the returning wolves players from injury, need to see if hes still nailed in the team. Also Antonio to dcl would be a bad move I think since West ham have great fixtures from gw8. I'd say go for chilwell for now

                    A) for flexibility - saiss is will still be in the wolves line up most likely, even with kilmans form. Would keep foden also while kdb out

                        Liverpool's next 4 have SHU (H), WHA (H), LEI(H) so there is potential. If you're not comfortable with it then I'd see if City look better offensively tonight against Porto, w/o KDB the creativity was lacking against Arsenal.

                    Son for the next three but all look good options and you could add Rashford and Mane as choice of 5 premium swaps for KdB.
                    I'm kicking myself that I did KdB to Pulisic last week!
