Watkins making strong case for Villa double-up with in-form Grealish

Arsenal 0-3 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Ollie Watkins x2 (£6.0m)
  • Own goals: Bukayo Saka (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Matt Targett (£4.5m), Ross Barkley (£6.0m), Jack Grealish (£7.4m)
  • Bonus points: Watkins x3, Targett x2, Barkley x1

THE GREAL DEAL

Jack Grealish (£7.5m) has firmly established himself in the current template for success among Fantasy Premier League managers after yet another attacking return against Arsenal.

Following a Gameweek 8 assist, the Aston Villa midfielder has involved himself in 10 of his team’s 18 goals this season (55.6%) and averaged 8.6 points per game in 2020/21.

The England international does not look like letting up either, running the show in Villa’s impressive 3-0 win at Arsenal, who came into Sunday evening’s clash with the Premier League’s best defensive record.

As is usually the case with this all-action midfield asset, Grealish could easily have left the Emirates Stadium with a third double-figure haul of the season as he assisted a John McGinn (£5.5m) goal ruled out for offside against Ross Barkley (£6.0m) in the first period before seeing his second-half penalty box effort cleared off the line by Kieran Tierney (£5.4m).

Unsurprisingly, Fantasy managers are taking note of Grealish’s excellent displays, and ability to convert them into points, increasing the pressure on non-owners.

He came into Gameweek 8 in 57.9% of squads inside the top 10,000 worldwide rankings, only Son Heung-min (87.1%), Harry Kane (86.7%) and Mohamed Salah (65.3%) owned by more at that level.

With Brighton (home), West Ham (away), Newcastle (home), Wolves (away), Burnley (home), West Bromwich Albion (away) and Crystal Palace (home) the next seven teams to face Aston Villa, it is certainly not too late to exploit Grealish’s favourable form and fixtures, his price already rising to £7.5m as of Tuesday morning.

1.21 GIGA-WATS

The kind nature of Aston Villa’s fixtures, as well as their ability to score goals, certainly justifies anyone looking at a double-up on their attacking assets.

Even better, there is a seriously viable candidate to join Grealish in our squads right now, Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) registering a 13-point haul at Arsenal thanks to a brace and maximum bonus.

Those goals took the former Exeter City and Brentford forward to seven attacking returns for the season, all of them coming in Villa’s last five matches, an average of 8.6 points per game.

Crucially, the timing of Watkins’ form and fixtures could be perfect for anyone in need of replacing Callum Wilson (£6.6m), should his hamstring injury prove to be a long-term one. We are likely to find out more about it on the other side of the international break.

And while Bamford may be one to consider as another alternative Wilson replacement, Watkins might even find himself as the go-to option for anyone concerned about Leeds’ fixtures, as they face Arsenal (home), Everton (away), Chelsea (away) and West Ham (home) in the next four. Over the last four Gameweeks, Bamford has scored 28 points to Watkins’ 24, so the two players are largely tracking at the same level of output but the latter has better fixtures by far.

BARK AND BITE

Watkins is not the only kindly-priced option to pair with Grealish though, as Barkley added his third attacking return of the last five Gameweeks against Arsenal.

During that time, he has averaged 5.8 points per game and, ahead of Gameweek 9, he was pushed into a more advanced role against Arsenal.

Dean Smith has mostly favoured 4-3-3 since the turn of the year as he sought to shore up last season’s defensive problems.

However, in recent weeks the Villa manager has begun lining his troops up in more of a 4-2-3-1, asking McGinn and Douglas Luiz (£4.9m) to sit slightly deeper and affording Barkley a number 10 role.

SAFE HANDS?

A first clean sheet since Gameweek 5 was welcome news for the 26.8% invested in Emiliano Martínez (£4.8m) although Villa’s clean sheet potential for their kind run of fixtures is still arguably up in the air.

Smith’s men were fortunate not to concede at Arsenal, Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4m) spurning a golden chance at the back post, which he headed over in the first half.

Then, in the second half, Rob Holding (£4.4m) was afforded too much time to get on the end of Gabriel‘s (£5.1m) cross. Had offensive players been given the chance to attack that space, they might well have scored.

Remember, of course, Villa’s upcoming opponents Brighton have blanked in just one match this season and West Ham have found the net against Liverpool, Manchester City and Spurs.

Arsenal XI (3-4-2-1): Leno; Tierney, Gabriel, Holding; Saka, Elneny, Partey (Ceballos 46′), Bellerín; Aubameyang, Willian (Pépé 65′); Lacazette (Nketiah 65′).

Aston Villa XI (4-2-3-1): Martínez; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Cash; McGinn, D Luiz; Grealish, Barkley, Trézéguet (El Ghazi 88′); Watkins.

        I am considering this. Allows Trossard to KDB.
        And I still have Son

        Same here- Son to B Fernandes and Kane to Watkins for gw9 to free up funds for Kdb for gw10

          Im not getting this Bruno thing.

          I know they play WBA (who gave Spurs a hard time in last GW) but after that they have Southampton, West Ham and City - 3 hard fixtures. Does that not temper your enthusiasm for buying Bruno? They are 3 hard fixtures on current form. Plus he is 1.5-2m dearer than other like assets. I think some people are looking at Bruno for just 1 game?

            I’ve got Bruno in on my WC and it’s not just for the West Brom game. The guy is a season keeper now for me.

            Yes, he’ll blank, but the guy hauls when he does get points. I know this may go against popular wisdom on this site, but I really don’t care anymore, I’d rather have him than Raz or KdB.

        is jamal lewis nailed? is he a good option for a fifth defender (probably need to play him only 2-3 times in the next 10) - or should i go 0.1 more expensive to lescelles?

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years

          Newcastle are appalling Defense. Try Kilman or Anyone else maybe ?

            this was not always the case thou... they might toughen up at some point....

              Might toughen up. Not good reasoning for buying defenders

        2. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Bad option. Looked amazing GW1. Looks horrid ever since. They dont attack enough. May as well forget NEW for away fixtures. Other better options.

        3. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 16 days ago

          If bench fodder then probably okay, as a 4.3m playing defender can be. But dont plan on NUFC keeping any clean sheets, even with better fixtures on the horizon. Coming from a newcastle fan.. So Lascelles for 0.1m isnt worth it I dont think. Depends if that 0.1m makes any difference to your team

            as a fan - is he at risk of losing his place? he is just a fifth defender

            1. FPL_Motty
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 16 days ago

              If you want to be 100% certain, then get Lascelles. I dont think Lewis loses his place but he is at risk of a rest when Richie is back, over the busy christmas period. But overall hes the best leftback option available so he is pretty much nailed.

                  Ignore what the experts on here tell you and just do your thing.

                  I was contemplating him on my WC too, but have gone with Struijk just to free up £0.5 ITB. He’d be on my bench pretty much every week so not bothered about what the ‘experts’ on here would say.

                  Kidman’s fixtures are horrendous too, if you look at them.

          Ait nouri was terrible, Kilman conceded a penalty and they lost the game. He could easily get his spot back if the two youngsters don't stabilize the defense. Baffling to drop a seasoned veteran and play two teenagers in the back line imo.

        I think I messed up a -8 and bought in martial with the hit.. Really regretting it and have no WC.. Do I just role or attempt my free hit.

        Martinez
        Chilwell Lamptey Van Aanholt Coufal (Bran)
        Salah Sterling Ziyech Zaha (Biss)
        Martial Kane (Brewster)

        Trent/Son/Wilson to ziyech/Chilwell/Martial was my crazy -8

        1. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Deffo a bit crazy, as you could have done just TAA>Chilwell, or that and Son>Ziyech, didnt really need wilson to Martial. Despite that, dont use FH! May be a -8 but you will gain so many more points using a FH in the right week, ie. blanks and doubles later in the season. Good moves in the long run so you will want to keep your new team anyway

              Yup we live and learn :). Also top tip as well.. hold off your transfers over an international break unless price changes are absolutely critical. As you need to hope no major injuries to any of your team next 2 weeks! If Chilly/Ziyech/Martial all injured then FH away.. haha, very unlikely!

          Crazy yes. But nice looking team.
          Hope for no injuries during IB.
          Don't activate FH. Just take another hit if there are injuries.

        Alongside Emi and Jack, is Targett or Watkins a better pick?

        Struggling to find any good 4.5 defs, whereas Bamford is viable.

            Don't really like West Ham for clean sheets in any of their 5 games after Sheffield. Possibly Palace but that's 1 of the next 4, 2 of the next 6.
            Lamptey I suppose is just viable every week due to attacking threat.

              it does point towards WH on the season ticker and shot conceded in the box stats. Cancello, Bellerin and Zouma arent to out of reach and seem better bets

            2. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Lamptey is brilliant to own.

              I don’t think he’ll get that many points this season. But it’s a gas watching him play when he’s in your team. You just feel he might score or assist when Brighton attack

      • Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        How about these moves?

        2 FT's, 2m ITB

        Robbo/Saiss/Zaha - Cancelo/Cresswell/Ziyech

        I know Zaha has great fixtures but Eze might be taking the shine off owning Zaha and the rest of my midfield is strong so nobody else to sell.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          hitting out zaha and robbo feels sort of bad. Saiss to Cancello looks fine

              Eze might make it eze for Zaha to get more points.
              Zaha the likelier of the two to play full 90min.

            Best option here?

            A) Son to Bruno
            B) Zaha to Rashford
            C) Ignore United and save free transfer

                Planning Bamford to Antonio (if fit), or Son to Ziyech? or just roll the transfer? Want to do Kane to Vardy next GW.

                have 3 Chelsea already - Jorghino, Zouma, Chilwell

                Have 1 FT, should I do Son ----> Ziyech and Jorg ----> bench fodder (-4)?

                    Which would rather have long term
                    1) Kdb + Son + Watkins

                    Currently on 2 but will playing Soucek every week for Shef, avl, MUN, Leeds be worth it?

                      Out of those options I think 2 looks the best. I think Soucek is criminally ignored right now, his goal this weekend wasn't a fluke, hes been threatening for weeks. West ham have some decent fixtures coming up, he is fantastic value at 4.9m

                      Put it another way, out of that lot, KDB and Vardy are head and shoudlers above all

                        Yeah I have been observing Souzeck for sometime... It gives option of kdb/vardy captaincy, this week just doing Foden to Souzek to. Rollthe 2FTs available then

                        Martinez

                        (Steer - Bissouma, Ayling, Mitchell)

                        A) Son, Kane, Bissouma -> Ziyech, KDB, Brewster (-8)
                        B) Salah -> KDB
                        C) Bruno, Saiss -> KDB, Coufal (-4)

                          Unfortunately only way is downgrading one of your current attack. I'd consider DCL>Watkins to fund Son>KDB. In a couple gws DCL fixtures get tougher. I wouldnt drop Salah/Bruno or Kane for KDB. Not that KDB isnt worth it, but swapping any of them for KDB is very sideways, as they are all in form and big hitters.

                              Steer lurking on the bench and blocking the Watkins transfer, and I'm 0.3m short of doing those trannys anyways. Thanks for the input though. Could do DCL, Son, Saiss -> Antonio(if fit), KDB, Coufal/Lamptey though?

                                No? Pulisic likely back after ITB. You gonna be happy if Ziyech assists a pulisic Hatrick?

                                  hmm still feel like Pulisic won't be rushed by Lampard given how fragile he seems... and Ziyech is central to Chelsea attack

                                          Any fellow Foden and Podence owners out there? What are you're transfer plans.

                                            Own Podence, expect a haul as he will have 2 weeks off. Planning to sell this GW or next.

                                              Did Podence -> Grealish last GW. Never owned Foden, but think he is the priority to get out.
                                              Foden -> Grealish/Ziyech?

                                                  Could even roll a transfer.
