Coady and Saïss absent for Wolves as Traoré makes first start since Gameweek 3

Wolves come into a Gameweek 9 short of two defenders at the heart of of the team’s Fantasy Premier League appeal.

Despite not featuring since Gameweek 6, Romain Saïss (£5.2m) remains the club’s most popular Fantasy asset this season.

16.4% of managers still hold the Moroccan but he misses the visit of Southampton having tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Conor Coady (£5.0m) is, of course, less of a key player for Fantasy managers (although he is still owned by 7.9%) but he is the lynchpin that has helped Wolves build up a reputation for clean sheets this calendar year – and he is also absent on Monday night.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are sure to miss the England international, who has featured in every game so far this season, Leander Dendoncker (£4.8m) dropping back to cover him in defence.

Elsewhere, there is an interesting change higher up the pitch as Pedro Neto (£5.5m), who has impressed in 2020/21, is replaced in the front-three by Adama Traoré (£6.2m), who makes a first start since Gameweek 3.

He is joined in the Wolves attack by Raúl Jiménez (£8.4m) and Daniel Podence (£5.5m).

Southampton make just one change to the side that beat Newcastle 2-0 before the international break.

Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) is back in the side in the place of Jack Stephens (£4.8m), reclaiming the left-back berth from Jan Bednarek (£4.5m), who returns to centre-back.

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Kilman, Dendoncker, Boly; Aït-Nouri, Neves, Moutinho, Semedo; Podence, Jiménez, A Traoré.

Southampton XI (4-4-2): A McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Walker-Peters; Djenepo, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Armstrong; Walcott, Adams.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

  4. dshv
    • 4 Years

    Okay my defence.. -1 0 and now taylor is good

  5. some witty pun

    1. Jindaljain
      • 6 Years

      You are the one in this whole world

  6. Well you know, Triffic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Not sure I can go without KDB after watching that Burnley performance. Palace were all over them second half.

    1. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      City will win either 1-0 or go mad and win 5-0

    2. Dosh
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Not Sterling?

  7. Kellz86
    • 4 Years

    Jimi/Kilman let’s go!

  8. Chucky

    Charlie Taylor you absolute Beauty 😀

    1. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      I second that! Finally some CS from BUR.

      1. Chucky
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        burnley are a reliable source of CS points when their first choice def is playing.. consecutive cs for taylor 😀

        1. De Gea is GOAT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          I agree hence why i also held onto him. Hopefully more to come

  9. Brosstan
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Need Jimmy to save the season

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      1 shot on goal if you're lucky.

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Jimmy has still never blanked 3 times in a row in FPL. Will this be the combo breaker?

      1. fr3d
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        I have a bad feeling McCarthy/KWP casuals will be rewarded tonight

      2. Zalk
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Ooh, I like stats like that!

      3. Chucky
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        he blanked 4times last season twice... but expecting him to haul tonight

        1. Brosstan
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          When? I was sure this stat was still live.

          1. Chucky
            • 7 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            lol I wish I had taken a screenshot of his fpl page history but he did blank 4 times in a row..

          2. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            He did as I had him over that period. I sold for the fifth and he scored.

    3. Jindaljain
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Jimmy with double digits today mind my words

    4. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Sorry Bros but I need jimi to get less than 5 points to win my League 1 division 1 H2H. Shame we cant both win.

  10. FPL_Motty
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 8 days ago

    This game had 1-0 Burnley all over it. Called it

  11. Salarrivederci
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    With an OR at 1.5 M who do you think is the most punty, but at the same time reasonable captain pick next GW?

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Sterling

    2. SH@KTIMAAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Sterling, Vardy, Aguero

    3. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Joao Cancelo

    4. G B
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Rashford.

      Perfect type of game for him.

  12. fusen
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    The quality of football in that Burnley Palace game was awful.

    So many misplaced passes or overhit shots/crosses.

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      It was really bad.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      You mush have expected it though.

      1. fusen
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        I expected not many good attempts on goal but the bad quality was all over the pitch, from def to midfield and then the expected lack of attacking intent.

        Embarrassing for the players.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          Thought Eze was pretty handy.

  13. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Which player to bring in risk week please? And probably captain.

    A....kdb

    B...salah

  15. Mile Plankton
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    WTF, I don't even have 11 at the end.

    1. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Better 10 players than Tariq the turd from the bench

      1. Mile Plankton
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Oh, he's my starter.

        1. Joey Tribbiani
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 8 days ago

          So basically 9

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      At least you didn't have Zaha then Lamptey first sub

      1. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Ouch, well if you put it that way...

  17. Chucky
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    No one from my starting 11 has blanked so far this GW. Congratz to fellow Jimmy owners.. Haul incoming..

    1. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Is 0 not a blank?

      1. Chucky
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        suspended or injured players not included

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        I’m not sure it counts.

    2. Sloane426
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Grealish, Watkins and Rodriguez didn’t blank?

      1. Chucky
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        they are on the bench 😛

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

    Hi guys, which option do you prefer for the next 6
    GWKs?

    A. Chilwell Kane Son

    B. Masuaku KDB Kane

    C. Chilwell KDB Werner

    Thanks!

    1. Jindaljain
      • 6 Years

      Romain saiss unlucky player

  19. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Started Saiss. Mitchell first sub and doesn’t play. So second sub comes on, Gabriel. Lovely stuff.

    1. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Nice.
      I get Justin from the third spot.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Even better.

  20. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Is Kane + Zaha to Son + Vardy(C) -4 too sideways?

    1. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Just get Jota.

      Im going Jimmy + Zaha -> Jota + Vardy (pending midweek news of course)

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Ok

      2. Sloane426
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Jota is a casual pick. May aswell go Foden also whilst you’re at it.

        1. Brosstan
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          Foden is a shite pick as Ive been saying all season.

  21. Gobigorgohome
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    come on JIMMYYYYY

  22. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
    • 9 Years

    Southampton to win this 2 nil.

  23. Whazza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Vardy owners not worried they play 13th and 15th December?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Nice spot. Thanks

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Won't change any plans I assume but might be worth getting him out after Brighton.. Or before as he could sit Brighton out and play eve?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          Maybe he’ll play 70 minutes or something. He’s very fit.

          1. Whazza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            Disagree, would put money on him being benched for one, but heck it's Vardy he can score from the bench too especially vs Brighton and Everton. Not a captaincy option for me those gws though 🙂

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              11 months, 8 days ago

              Well either way I appreciate the heads up.

    2. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      That’ll change when the TV schedule gets sorted. It’ll be mayhem for everyone.

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        It's not sorted for the next 4 gws already!? Thanks for the heads up if that's the case

  24. Differentiator
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    What autosubs do you all have coming in for Justin?

    Bissouma's 1 point for me -_-

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Gabriel

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        That is a seriously lucky autosub

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          I agree, especially as I had Saiss and Mitchell ahead of him.

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Justin played lol I have him coming in for Zaha

    3. The Sociologist

  25. Jellyfish
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Currently on 4 flagged players this week with Lamptey Barkley Salah and now Zaha. Any more and I will be tempted in to using the FH chip

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Salah is training mate and Lamptey belongs on the bench vs Pool anyway, chill mate

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Yes holding some hope fro Salah at least

  26. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    1-0 Wolves, Kilman winner.
    Who’s with me?

  27. ALI_G
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    surely the lowest autosub scores this season:

    Lamptey -1
    Saiss - 0
    Mitchell - 0
    Justin - 0

    1. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Lamp - minus 1 sorry

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        What’s the difference?

    2. Sloane426
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      50% of them didn’t even play so this is dumb.

  28. Runaway
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Which one looks more priority?

    A) Kane > Vardy (C)
    B) Son + Robbo > Salah (C) + Cancelo (-4)
    C) Bowen > Jota

    Team atm:
    Martinez
    Robbo Chilwell Dallas
    Bruno (C) Son Ziyech Grealish Bowen
    Kane DCL

    Forster Brewster KWP Lamptey

      • 1 Year
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Damn, I couldn't really sell Son and Robbo rn.
      I'd say keep one spurs asset. Keep Son. Do A.

      1. Gemma817
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 8 days ago

        wouldn't*

  29. Jindaljain

    Romain saiss unlucky player

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Funny he's still in the top 10 FPL defenders for points this season despite not playing in the last 3 games
      Shows how rare CSs have been this season

  30. Gemma817
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Wanna get Cancelo in for Chilwell for a hit.
    I am being completely crazy here?

    *Can't afford Cancelo without selling Chiwell

    1. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Yup. Streight up crazy

      1. Gemma817
        • 1 Year
