Moving Target

Can Robert Snodgrass’ set pieces turn him into a viable FPL asset for West Brom?

Robert Snodgrass (£5.7m) became Sam Allardyce’s first signing as West Bromwich Albion manager last week, signing on an 18-month deal.

Will he help transform his new team’s fortunes and become a viable Fantasy Premier League asset in the process?

We’ve run the rule over the former Norwich City and Hull man to find out.

The midfielder had been largely frozen out of the team at West Ham this season, making four substitute appearances in the Premier League for a grand total of four minutes.

Snodgrass, 33, had been an important part of the Hammers’ side before struggling with a back disk injury, which kept him out of the second half of last season.

The former Scotland international is expected to go straight into the team at the Hawthorns, giving the Baggies some much needed Premier League experience.

“I’m absolutely delighted he has chosen to take up the challenge with us. He’ll add Premier League experience and quality to our side.”

Sam Allardyce

There’s currently no sign of Fantasy Premier League managers being tempted to bring Snodgrass in ahead of Double Gameweek 19, but should he be considered?

VETERAN

Allardyce made a name for himself at Bolton for taking experienced players thought to be over the hill and bringing out some of the best football of their careers.

The careers of Jay-Jay Okocha, Fernando Hierro and Gary Speed all experienced and Indian Summer thanks to their time at The Reebok.

And Allardyce is clearly hoping to get the same from Snodgrass, comparing him to Premier League legend Speed.

“He might be getting on but in his mind he still thinks he’s 20. Snodgrass runs all day, he’s got great quality and a huge amount of experience. He never gives up. Hopefully that will rub off on some of these players who will look at him and say, ‘My word’. Lifting the spirits and lifting the standards is very important at a professional football club. It’s even more important at a Premier League club.”

Sam Allardyce

Despite Allardyce’s comments, Snodgrass’ FPL returns have not dropped considerably as he has entered his mid 30s.

Last season he delivered a decent 10 goal contributions, scoring five goals and chipping in with five assists.

Despite playing fewer minutes, that was actually an improvement on the season before, suggesting Snodgrass could still have plenty to offer at Premier League level.

SWEET LEFT FOOT

Big Sam was keen to highlight Snodgrass’ left foot and how it would bring balance to his side, hinting at a role down the left hand side of midfield.

“He’s left-footed. We all look for balance. When you get the right balance in the team with left-footed players, they can really produce for you down that left side. I’ve heard from many, many people that he is exceptional in the dressing room which is a great bonus on top of his abilities.”

Sam Allardyce

West Brom’s two most effective attacking players of last season, Matheus Pereira (£5.6m) and Grady Diangana (£5.1m), who are both left footed, have struggled to replicate the form they showed in the Championship.

(Pereira left, Diangana right)

Allardyce even singled out Pereira for criticism, asking for more from the West Brom playmaker.

“It’s very simple. This is the Premier League and he needs to do it (play) quickly – much quicker than he did in the Championship. Then he will show his very skilful qualities. But if he chooses to do it at his pace in the Premier League, then he will not be successful.”

Sam Allardyce

Reading into these quotes, it is telling Allardyce has only started Pereira once in the Premier League since arriving at the Hawthorns.

And he appears to be equally unimpressed with Diangana, hauling him off at half-time in their 4-0 thrashing by Arsenal.

In the case of Snodgrass, it could be that Big Sam is looking for the midfielder to offer a greater balance in the middle of the park, with most of West Brom’s centre midfielders predominantly being right footers.

He would also add some much needed creativity, where other than Conor Gallagher (£5.5m), they are severely lacking.

But with both Pereira and Diangana struggling this season, it could be that Snodgrass finds himself playing out on the left flank.

SET PIECES

Throughout his career, Snodgrass has offered huge threat from set pieces, particularly from corners, as shown in his best 2016/2017 season.

With Allardyce setting up the Baggies in a defensive formation, they will need to make the most of set pieces if they are to pull off a miraculous survival.

Sam Inkersole, who covered West Ham for Football.London during Snodgrass’ spell, outlined the Scot’s quality delivery and what else he could bring to his new team.

“His qualities were obvious. Set piece delivery was impressive and vastly improved from what the Hammers had previously and simply, his work rate. Too many West Ham players that season (when he arrived) were passengers so it was no surprise they struggled.”

Sam Inkersole

Set pieces have already played a big part of the West Brom attack since Allardyce joined.

A towering header from Semi Ajayi (£4.8m) gave the Baggies an unlikely point against champions Liverpool.

And the big centre half netted again in the FA Cup against Blackpool, before they lost on penalties.

With a 6ft 3ins defender who can aggressively attack a ball in the other team’s penalty area, Snodgrass’ quality set piece deliveries may well find their target more often than not.

Should the pair be able to strike up a good understanding, then they could both turn into assets worth having in the second half of the season.

THE PROSPECTS

In a system that will suit his style of play, Robert Snodgrass could well deliver some good FPL returns for his new club.

His assist potential could also be bolstered by a new striker, one Allardyce is actively searching for.

“I am looking for a frontman, hopefully he’ll be coming through the door as quickly as possible. That’ll be from abroad, rather than from this country.”

Sam Allardyce

However, the main issue with bringing him into our teams is his price point.

Still priced up at £5.7m, he finds himself in the same bracket as former teammate Tomas Soucek (£5.3m), who has delivered consistent returns all season, and Raphinha (£5.5m), the dynamic Leeds winger who is starting to deliver goals and assists.

West Brom also face a torrid run of games in the next few weeks.

In their next seven the Baggies will face off against Manchester City, Manchester United, Spurs and Wolves, with returns looking few and far between.

Kinder fixtures against Fulham and Sheffield United in Gameweeks 21 and 22 will give us a realistic idea about what to expect from their attack.

Ultimately, Snodgrass appears to be priced just a bit too highly to be considered for a budget midfielder role.

But those looking for a punt on a differential midfielder, with the Scot currently sitting at 0.1% ownership, could be hugely rewarded when fixtures turn in Gameweek 25.

    Hope Villa's DGW is in 20 not 19

      Im praying it's the other way round!

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I was hoping too until I decided I preferred FH19!

    2. pundit of punts
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Just over 48 hours for them to make the decision

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Yeah same. I have Grealish and Martinez and would like to bench them this week.

    4. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year

      Sorry what’s the latest possible fixture change???

  2. G Banger
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Martinez
    Dallas Stones Coufal
    Salah KDB Bruno Soucek Grealish
    Kane Bamford

    Button Holding KWP Brewster

    Anything worth a -4?

    1. LC1
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Only 6 GWers if Villa is off but I can't really see any moves that I'd do myself.

  3. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    so like many i'm unsure to BB this week with the changes, what do you think? 4 single players now and 1 non starter (i could do transfers to change a couple for a hit)

    JohnStone / McCathy

    TAA / Maguire / Coufal / Dallas / Johnson

    Salah / Son / Fernandes / Soucek / Raphinha

    Bamford / Kane / Wood

    1FT, 0.3m ITB

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Who would be on your bench?

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        If didn't play bench boost it would likely be:

        McCarthy / Raphinha / Dallas / Johnson

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Hmm I'd be tempted to boost that.

          1. ShaunGoater123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            yeah its a tough one.

            other thing i'm consdiering, and think this might be mad is:

            TAA > Stones
            Raphinha > Foden
            Wood > Cavani

            total madness?!

            1. waltzingmatildas
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              I don't think Cavani will start both games. But the moves looks good

              1. ShaunGoater123
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                yeah i'd be banking on Martial being injured, hoping for some news.

                still leaves me with a Johnson problem if i was to BB. effectively takes me to 14 players, of which 11 are double + 3 singles

  4. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    McCarthy Johnstone
    Robbo Cancelo Coufal Dallas Taylor
    Salah Bruno Son Raphina Soucek
    Firmino Wood Bamford

    A) Son to Rashford
    B) Son and Firmino to KDB and Antonio (-4)
    C) Son, Raphina, Wood to KDB, Saka, Davis (-8) - don't bench boost

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      yeah i think B here

  5. LC1
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Really struggling now that Leeds / Soton and Villa are all due to be off. Leaves me with only 4 DGWers !

    Here is my team;

    Martinez
    TAA** Coufal** Dallas
    Salah** Bruno** Son Grealish
    Bamford DCL Adams

    Steer James Mitchell Missouma

    2.1 ITB 1 FT.

    I was planning on;
    Adams, DCL, TAA > Vardy, Antonio and Cancelo.

    Also tempted to bring in Stones or Dias for James.

    Happy to take a few hits in all honesty as long as it leaves my team in good shape for the upcoming fixtures.

    Any feedback is really appreciated!

    Thank you!

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I like that move. Maybe keep James. Not interested in KDB?

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I am but want to try and minimise how many DGWers I get rid of and prioritise bringing in DGWers for SGWers and theres no way I can get KDB in without ridding of Bruno or Salah. Just going to have to hide behind my sofa!

  6. The Mighty Whites
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    1FT, 0.7 ITB,

    Martinez, Johnstone

    Roberston, Dias, Coufal, Dallas, Mitchell

    Salah, Fernandes, Son, Raphinha, Anguissa

    Kane, DCL, Bamford

    Would you just do DCL to Antoniono / other DGW forward or get rid of Raphinha too to get another DGW player??

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      How much would you have for Raphinha replacement?

      1. The Mighty Whites
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        £6.1

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Soucek? Foden?

  7. pundit of punts
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Scared to pick Antonio or fabianski on FH

    Both are injury concerns and may go off after starting the game

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Think I'll dodge Antonio. He's mightily tempting but just an injury/transfer waiting to happen.

  8. CrouchDown
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    What to do here with 1 FT? Adams + Dallas > Dawson + Antonio (-4) ?

    Martinez

    Chilwell TAA Taylor

    Salah Bruno Soucek Son

    Vardy Bamford Adams

    Subs: McCarthy, Dallas Mitchell Bissouma

    1. BeWater
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Can you do just Adams to Antonio? I would probably keep Dallas. I did Adams to Antonio last night.

        1. CrouchDown
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Unfortunately not, that would be ideal.

          I have 0 itb so need the 0.2

          1. BeWater
              1 month, 14 days ago

              I would probably take the -4 then.

              1. CrouchDown
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Cheers mate

        2. CrouchDown
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Other option is Bissouma + Adams > Foden + Davis (-4)

      • Marcin the Pole
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Thoughts on Foden for the double? I'm tempted - great form and playing very high up the pitch. Seems to be one of City's main goal threats.

        On the other hand, rotation worries me. There's a good chance he doesn't start both games, although I'm fairly certain he'll play at least one. After the DGW, he also seems like a transfer waiting to happen, but is it a chance worth taking?

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I like the safer option of Gundo

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            I don't think he's safer honestly.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Reasoning needed

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Gundo occasionally gets dropped for Fernandinho. Bernardo Silva can also drop into the 8 role.

                I do think he's nailed for at least one game, but I don't think he's a sure starter for two which puts him on a par with Foden. Basically, I don't think he's safer than Foden.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I had him for ages at the start. Obviously didn't work out in itself but at his price it doesn't do too much damage either.

          I had him on FH and seriously considering him again for the double and onwards. Pep said last night "right now, he deserves to play".

        What the chat of villa and toon being scheduled for the gw? I’m out the loop

        1. Black Knights
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          They have a postponed game that they need to play against each other. They're both out of the FA Cup so have the weekend of 23rd January free. If they play it then, it could be the end of GW19 or the start of GW20.

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Thanks, we are anticipating confirmation of the Everton and villa came postponed today. Will we know before the deadline of the fixture change for the toon?

            1. Black Knights
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              You never know with the FA. You'd think they'd want to tie up all loose ends at once/as quickly as possible, but we just don't know.

          Don't understand how it can be when Villa are already trying to have the Everton game postponed and they play Man City on Wed

            Scratch that. Just seen the response above

          Guys, would appreciate some thoughts here.

          Would you go; Adams and Dunne (3.9m) for Stones and Antonio for -8?

          Then DGW Team after that
          Johnstone
          Justin, TAA, Stones
          Salah, Bruno, KDB, Soucek
          Bamford, Vardy, Antonio

          Benching 4m, Dallas, Mitchel, Burke

          Don't plan to BB.

            1 month, 14 days ago

            whos nailed on for the DGW Dias or Cancelo

              I would say both are nailed but if you want to be on the cautious side then go with Dias

            anyone considering Randolph instead of Fab? i don't think Fab will be fit for 19.

              too risky

            Is it too risky to TC KDB?
            Is it certain they will play Aston Villa? Its only 6 days from now.

              1 month, 14 days ago

              I'd say it's risky but not because they might lose the fixture but because KdB is tired and I think he could get rested in one of the games.

              KDB wasn't overly convincing last night so yes risky with TC. I would say it is certain with Villa due back to train on Saturday.

            Worth BB this for minus 4pts?

            Ederson McCarthy
            Zouma Alioski Justin Stones Coufal
            Mount Salah Fernandes Son Soucek
            Kane Bamford Antonio

            Thanks

            Levels of hits.

            Johnstone Martinez
            Zouma James Stones Coufal Dallas
            KdB Fernandes Salah Son Grealish
            Bamford Adams Davis

            A) Adams > Antonio
            B) Son + Adams > Foden + Firmino?! -4
            C) Davis + Son + Adams > Soucek + Cavani + Antonio -8 (BB)

            Will depend on fixture confirmation ofc. If Villa have a DGW, C looks like my route. If not, I'm most tempted by B. I don't actually like A that much because I think I have problems coming out of the DGW.

                  It does look by far the most simple. The problem is, I don't really trust Antonio much and I really like the upside from B.

              Tough captaincy decisions for next week. KDB a stand out on paper and even a TC consideration but after City's good performance at Chelsea it was back to this seasons City struggling to score against favourable opposition. Only 7 goals scored in the last 6 games.

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Bruno isn't doing much with Pogba alongside him, Liverpool have serious issues building up play and are crossing to nowhere with 3 consecutive blanks from Salah, KDB is doing a bit more and faces Palace so he'll be my (C).

                1. TheDragon
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  But will the Villa game definitely go ahead?

                  I’d rather a 2 game Salah than a 1 game KDB

                    Villa will be back to the training ground by Saturday so I see no reason why it shouldn't

                  Yes he will probably be my captain for the same reasons but to be honest I'm not trusting KDB and City's attack much at all. He has blanked for me quite a few times when I've captained him this season. He's the best option statistically so I will roll with it again but I'm not expecting a huge score and probably won't TC him.

                Salah is the forgotten man this week

                1. BeWater
                    1 month, 14 days ago

                    I'm captaining Salah. I've had KDB a lot this year. Got him out on WC. Brought him back on FH and he does a typical KDB 'nearly haul'.

                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  KDB been leaving so many points out there recently. Had he taken and scored that penalty its an 8 point swing and everybody is clambouring to bring him in. One of those two home games should see a proper return.

                  Happy that he stays a bit of a differential as I will most definitely TC him unless the Villa game is off.

                    Once again I 100% agree with you Sanchez. I think KDB is about to explode and was unlucky/poor last night, the penalty issue whilst annoying, was a bigger worry due Pep saying KDB was exhausted therefore I would worry about managed minutes but I have Bruno, Salah, Son and KDB and the TC is going on the Ginger Maestro.

                    With the fixture chaos I think there is a strong possibility of a triple gameweek at some point so I'm saving mine.

                Good morning Free Hit crew!

                How’s your current game week score versus what you’d have got if you hadn’t free hit?

                Mine:
                - current FH score: 48 + Saka + Tierney
                - non FH score: 22 + Mitchell

                FH probably worth 25-30 points I reckon so it looks like just about worth it for me to have played it

                  It was definitely worth it for me.

                  For me, I was down to 4 players. KdB, Fernandes, Son, Stones.
                  So if I hadn't FH I'd have gotten (with KdB c) 22.

                      Lol I wasn't even Sterling's biggest advocate. I considered permutations with him in late before deadline but that's it.

                      I'm a person with opinions and I'm not afraid to stick my neck out. If that draws fire, so be it, but I think it's more useful to be someone like that then to only ask questions or give vague non-commital suggestions.

                      People need to own up to their own decisions and I can't make them do that.

                      Really hurts still. Can only assume Raz was punishing me for all the mean things I said about him when he was rubbish for England (you know when he'd beat 3, run it off the end of the pitch, repeat).

                    No FH - 19 (with none left to play)
                    FH - 51 (with 3x Arsenal)

                    Really pleased with it

                        That’s an excellent result FH vs non FH.

                        +30 and 3 arsenal to go is best I’ve seen

                          Wasted my FH earlier in the season but have managed 39-4 with 3 Arsenal to go so I am happy with that with only 9 players

                    Would have been 29 all out from 6 players. As it is I've got a whopping 33 with Tierney and Saka left. As it's a one week thang took a chance and captained Sterling, that penalty miss was a 17 point swing. Alternatively he could have not come on for 10 minutes and I would have got another 11.

                      1 month, 14 days ago

                      Actually now I think about it I also had 2 free transfers and obviously have lost 1 now so that's another 4 points. If I hadn't used it then I could have got out a team of 14 doubles and Dier in a bench boost this week whereas now it would cost me 8 points, although I don't trust bench boosting at the moment the rate games are getting called off.

                    23 point gain from what I would have done had I not FH.

                    Would have taken -4 to field 6, so wasn't really much of a choice.

                    Non FH - 14 (Bruno C)
                    FH - 41 with Tierney, Saka, Laca to go (+Ampadu first on bench!)
                    Definitely worth it!

                  Would you BB this team?
                  Leeds have screwed all my planning of getting KDB but could have this team for a -4.
                  Worth it and BB?

                  Johnstone
                  TAA Maguire Dias Coufal
                  Salah (c) Bruno Soucek Gundogen
                  Vardy Antonio
                  Meslier Son Bamford Justin

                    Very nice! And a very decent bench too. I don't know what your -4 is for, but feel that Justin, Bamford and Son are all good enough to start so maybe revise the -4 and play Son.

                      Anyone on your bench could outscore practically any DGWer with the fixtures they have.

                    I'd bench Johnstone, Maguire, Justin and Soucek and wouldn't BB them.

                    I'd definitely BB that.

                  asm mahrez kane --> foden kdb antonio for -8?

                  I'm on a green arrow and 15 pts to come on from the bench after saving FH and a FT. There's an article about Snodgrass as a FPL option.
                  Am I in a parallel universe?

                    How's this team looking?

                    Johnstone
                    Justin, TAA, Stones
                    Salah, Bruno, KDB, Soucek
                    Bamford, Vardy, Antonio

                    took -8 for Antonio and Stones (Selling Adams and 3.9m Dunne)
