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′).

    Does Magnus Carlson actually know?

    His performance last 2 seasons and now start of this one has been unbelievable. Obv he is a decent FPL manager but is there more to it? Is he just experiencing huge positive variance or is he doing things the majority of ‘good’ FPL managers aren’t?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      How could he know?

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      He's a good manager. I think FPL is so high variance though that it's hard to tell if he's exceptional or lucky especially this early on in a season.

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        But last season he was top 10 and the season before he was top 100 fairly late in the season. In a 7 million+ player game that is several standard deviations above the mean.

        He is off to an absolute flyer again this season.

        I’ve put it down to good manager with huge amount of luck on his side up to now but. The data is building to a point it needs to be asked is he approaching the game differently to other good managers?

        In other words it's probably just luck?

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      He's definitely a smart lad. Has to be doing some kind of research and planning

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        That is what most ‘good’ FPL managers do - that’s not new

        His results over past 3 seasons have been extraordinary - so is it just that with a large side of luck or has he found a ‘different’ way to look at things other than pick players with highest xG etc

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Do you tho, or do you settle early on a decision and look for confirmation bias?

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            No def not but it’s quite a complex game isn’t it in terms of how many weeks ahead you should look - I imagine most people focus too short term.

            Maybe he has an approach to analyse over a longer period?

            1. Eat my goal!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              He’ll have a method for sure - chess is strategic, it has certain plays so he’ll have found his own in this game but all you can do is play probabilities. I make most my transfers under the influence, I’m pretty sure I could do much better if i didn’t play for fun

              1. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Agree

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Magnus ignores ownership too. That's probably the primary difference between him and most managers on here.

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

            • 2 Years

            Too much time, overthinking and changing mind a min before the deadline. But hey that's why I play this game, the silliness 😉

    5. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      He's obviously a smart person. Probably makes a lot of percentage based decisions.

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        But so do (I presume) most people on here. I imagine loads of people pick players / captains based on xG/ bookie clean sheet and goal scorer odds - that doesn’t explain the extremely exceptional results he is getting

        1. Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I doubt most people look at bookie odds for fantasy picks. Will be surprised if it's more than 5%. I for one don't.

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            If you don’t for captain picks then that’s a big leak

            1. Tinkermania
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              ''If you don't for captain picks then that's a big leak''.

              What does that even mean?

      Be interesting if other rich geniuses played the game to see how they'd do, say for example Elon Musk, Collison brothers. They wouldn't fall for the Kilman and James traps or do Son hokey cokeys like moi!

      He's a very clever person who is already a master at a game that depends heavily on strategy. Would be far more surprising if he was poor at FPL.

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        There’s a difference between being ‘good at FPL’ and consecutive seasons of:

        17/18: Top 2k
        18/19: Top 100 late in the season fading away slightly pushing for OR1
        19/20: 10th
        20/21: Off to a flyer

        That’s like 0.0000001% level

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Yes, he's an exceptional manager similar to many of those who have been interviewed here on the "Meet the Manager" series. What is it that makes people like Joe marvel at these managers when he interviews them?

          Number one by far is not putting a lot of stock in ownership. Often ignoring it altogether, but for some it's preferring players that are low owned over those that are highly owned.

        I'm playing Gomez and Gosens instead of 2 3pts players but then I have Felipe on the bench as well and would have to sub him in for a 4pts player.

          Horrible move to get rid of robertson. He plays so far up basically as a winger and on a lot of corners and indirect freekicks too now

      Can u do Zaha to Grealish? Don't like palaces chances of scoring outside of penalties

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        No, I can't . 0 ITB. Grealish with 1FT is not possible unfortunately. No chance selling Robbo before Sheffield at home.

        Jimi to Aguero for -4? Long term transfer I think he’ll bang more than Jimi. I dont own Sterling.

        1. Miguel Sanchez

          I wouldn't. Keep Jimenez for the Newcastle home game first and monitor Aguero.

        United starting to play. Brilliant performance. Rashford and Bruno will be start getting very popular on here again

          Bruno will be flavour of the month, which is why you have to be careful on here, saw a few people advising those thinking about putting fernandes in that it was a moronic move.

      13. gart888
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        On my WC

        Martinez - Steer
        Robbo - Chilwell - KWP - 4.5 - Kilman
        Salah - Son - James Rodriguez - Grealish - Zaha
        Kane - DCL - Brewster

        Best 4.5 to fill this slot? Wanted to go Targett, but he'd be my 4th villa player. Too risky to take a 4.0 keeper that isn't Steer?

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          No not really, if Martinez gets injured transfer him out

          1. gart888
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            I guess Steer offers autosub protection in case Martinez gets injured after the gameweek locks.

            1. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Yes I understand the logic, I have him as back up, but the blocking of a 3rd viable villa could be an issue.

              I’d have thought the injury cover for Martinez is not worth it.

              1. gart888
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Gotcha. Who do you rate as the best 4.5 defenders right now?

              2. Seanigula
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Villa are nothing special, 1 attacker is enough, and the best value may not be Grealish

                1. gart888
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Best 4.5 defender then?

                  1. Seanigula
                    • 11 Years

                    KWP, Ayling/Dallas

                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      You're not concerned about Ayling/Dallas short term outlook with Philips out?

        Really tempted of doing TAA to Robbo as i can see TAA sitting deeper now with VVD out. Is it wishful thinking or there is some reasoning?

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I don't see why that'll happen honestly. Fabinho will play cb probably now. He's great defensively

        2. Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          It's wishful thinking.

        Looking at Trent: 50k net transferred him out between gw 3 and 4 yet his ownership went up. Doubting he'll go down 0.1m despite 170k transfers out sofar this gw.

        • Kragbaek
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I'm confused for the coming round. Stick with Havertz, or switch to Willian, Bilva/Foden, Lucas or even Grealish? (Favour the latter the least)
