Another start for budget FPL defender Kilman as Darlow is passed fit for Newcastle

The second of three Premier League matches to take place on Sunday sees Wolverhampton Wanderers entertain Newcastle United.

Kick-off at Molineux is at 16:30 BST.

With the exception of Adama Traore (£6.4m), there is good news all round for owners of Wolves’ most-popular Fantasy Premier League assets.

Max Kilman (£4.1m) is handed his third straight start at centre-back, with Romain Saiss (£5.2m) again deployed at left wing-back.

Kilman was the most-bought FPL defender of Gameweek 6, with almost 340,000 Fantasy managers recruiting the budget asset for this fixture.

Traore’s third benching in a row means that Raul Jimenez (£8.5m) is again joined in attack by Daniel Podence (£5.5m) and Pedro Neto (£5.5m), meanwhile.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s only change to the side that beat Leeds United is a like-for-like one, with Ruben Neves (£5.4m) replacing Joao Moutinho (£5.4m) in central midfield.

The team news for the visitors is a bit more complicated, with Steve Bruce making four alterations from his starting XI in Gameweek 6.

There isn’t a change between the posts, however, with Karl Darlow (£5.0m) passed fit to feature.

Emil Krafth (£4.4m) and Joelinton (£5.8m) are both benched, with Isaac Hayden (£4.9m) also among the substitutes as Steve Bruce opts not to risk his half-fit midfielder.

Jonjo Shelvey (£5.4m), who is set for groin surgery, misses out completely.

Fabian Schar (£4.9m), Ryan Fraser (£5.8m), Jacob Murphy (£4.9m) and Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) come into the Magpies’ rather offensive-looking starting XI.


Wolverhampton Wanderers XI: Rui Patricio, Boly, Coady, Kilman, Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Saiss, Neto, Jimenez, Podence.

Newcastle United XI: Darlow, Schar, Lascelles, Fernandez, Lewis, Almiron, Hendrick, Fraser, Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Murphy.

        I thought you were extraordinarily wealthy for a second there

          1 month, 6 days ago

          Lol.. not quite at the landed gentry level just yet!

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Everyone has Lamptey son Kane so definitely won't save your gw especially as you haven't captained

      1. jason_ni
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I'm an optimist.
        Lampty is only 12% owned and at my rank son is 82%, and kane 74%, so they can for sure still move up the ranks.

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Are you ranked 400k? That's a great rank at this stage! Will you move up even from there?

          1. jason_ni
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Sorry... hadn't updated my profile, that was last seasons id, updated now.
            I wish I was 400k! Been a horrible season, sitting at 1.6mill, so plenty of room to rise!

            1. Super Saints
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              1.4 mil here, have no idea how I'm that high after selling Son for Bruno gw2 and captaining Salah every week

  2. Jon Walter's Hatty

    Trent on the second page of defenders list. Only in this season

  3. Fred the Red
    • 8 Years

    1. John Nerdelbaum
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yeah I'd do that move
      Seems like he's only going to get 60 odd mins max

  4. Salan

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        No Fulham etc etc. But a strong bench option at 4.9 I thought.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Then stick lol. You bought him with a specific plan. You can't sell someone before he has a chance to at least start on that plan...

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I wouldn't, one of the most consistent FPL players ever. Can see DCL dropping off soon, Kane Ings Jimi the dream

    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    21 with Kane(C), Son, Maupay left. Is that a good score for this week?

          1 month, 6 days ago

          Saiss really is a bap magnet, loving it. Both he and jimenez saved my bad week. Currently 27 with son, maupay and ryan left.

              Brewster to Bamford for free?
              Have 1 FT and 1.3 ITB.
              Other option is to save and build towards getting Bruno after 3 GWs.

              Have this team:

              Martinez Steere
              TAA James Dallas Lamptey Mitchell
              Salah Sterling Son Foden Podence

              A. Brewster -> Bamford
              B. Podence -> Zaha

                Unclear. Either him or Saiss is going to be the starting LCB.

              Exact money to do Sterling + Mitro -> Kane + Foden for free.

              26 with Kane, Son and Maupay left. Currently on a red arrow keeping me at c. 1.8M. FPL keeps on giving!

              No Jimi, Ings or Wolves defence isn’t starting to hurt....

              Any early ideas what to do with an FT here (I’ve got 2)? Kilman in?

              Martinez
              Robbo, Chilwell, Dallas
              Salah, Son, Pulisic, Grealish
              Kane (C), DCL, Maupay
              (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Braithwaite)

              Cheers!

                Begin planning for how you're gonna get MUN and City players.

                  I’m still unsure if I want any Utd players.

                  City is harder. I’d still consider Kane > Kun for the fixture swing if Kun looks back to any form. If not.... no clue!

                Jammy Jimenez owners. His xG wasn't high, but Darlow was sleeping.

                  He always does it though Jimi....

                  My 11 yr old son has Jimi, Podence and Saiss with Son (C)..... story of my season that he is decimating me 😆

              Anyone have an idea when we can expect the dgwks for man city and united?

              Was waiting to manage a wildcard around then

                Looking like GW19, so can WC GW16 (last for first wildcard) to set up for it

                GW19 possibly.

                  No chance earlier? Feel like it might be a waste leaving it until then

              As a reece james and saiss owner, is it fair to say one of them needs to go this week?

              James the priority - but there must also be a question mark over saiss nailedness from now own i guess?

              Thanks

                I'm not certain yet. Reece James got 8 pts and Chelsea was able to keep cs. It isn't impossible that Frank has learned something. Saiss has not lost his place yet and next fixture looks nice. He was also advanced today and almost scored in previous game.

                Surely no one serious still has Auba?

                Should I get Kane here?
