Rodgers offers Vardy fitness update as well-owned Justin hits century of FPL points

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 Leicester City

Bonus Points: James Justin (£5.2m) x3, Max Kilman (£4.0m) x2. Rui Patricio (£5.3m) x1 Nelson Semedo (£5.2) x1 Jonny Evans (£5.5m) x1

James Justin‘s (£5.2m) ever-growing army of owners emerged the happiest from a drab encounter between Wolves and Leicester.

Just to prove how turgid the match was, it involved fewer shots on target (four) than players who received bonus points (five).

Four of those who received extra points were defenders. The other was home keeper Rui Patricio (£5.3m).

News Justin

Leicester full-back Justin has had a fine time of it over the last six matches, with four clean sheets, a goal and eight bonus points.

He backed up Gameweek 22’s season-best 15-point haul with a nine-pointer at Molineux – a pleasant welcome present for the 192,532 new managers who had pushed his ownership levels up to 29.7% before kick-off.

That consolidated his status as Fantasy Premier League’s (FPL) most popular defender, and only West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell (£5.7m) now has more points (106 v 101).

Justin contributed nothing going forward at Wolves – not a single shot taken, chance created or cross delivered as he spent his day reining in Adama Traore’s (£6.0m) forays down the Foxes’ left flank.

No Shot, Sherlock

Wolves worked Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) just the once, albeit with the best chance of the game, when Fabio Silva (£5.2m) forced him into a fine save from close in.

That prompted manager Nuno Espirito Santo to indulge in a touch of criticism of his striker:

Fabio has to do better. He (Schmeichel) did a great save, it was a fantastic save, but he has to do better.

But there’s a reason why only four teams have a worse goalscoring record than Wolves (23), and it’s more to with the manager’s defensive instincts than Silva’s profligacy.

His intentions were there for all to see on Sunday, with Espirito Santo utilising a five-man defence that sat deep and wide to negate Leicester’s attacking threat.

It worked. All three of the visitors’ shots on target came from range and from James Maddison (£7.4m), but none went beyond glorified back pass status, handing Patricio one of the easiest save points of his FPL career.

Welcome Back Boys

Two players made returns at Molineux.

Jamie Vardy (£10.0m), who had lost more than a million managers since undergoing a hernia operation following a Gameweek 19 victory over Chelsea, was handed 29 minutes from the bench and very nearly won it late on.

He flashed a header narrowly wide – an opportunity not officially designated as a big chance, although it was certainly large enough.

But Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers was more concerned with the minutes than the miss:

I’d love Jamie Vardy to play every minute of every game, but we can’t do that. Giving him half-hour was about right because he brings that movement. We can look to see if we can get some more game-time into him on Wednesday.

That would mean midweek FA Cup action at home to Brighton. Should he come through that unscathed, a visit from Liverpool in Saturday’s early kick-off could well mark his first start in five Gameweeks.

The striker is currently one of three Leicester players in the top 20 for transfers-in, although it should be mentioned that Vardy has not scored in the league since Gameweek 14’s win at Spurs just before Christmas.

Espirito Santo, meanwhile, gave wing-back Jonny (£5.4m) the first 45 minutes on his return from a serious knee injury:

It was decided by him, by us, by the medical staff, by the doctor that operated on him. With him returning, we have to be very careful. The decision was made before the game started. It was a decision based on our future, how we have to preserve a player like Jonny.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-2-1): Patricio; Kilman, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny (Hoever 45), Neves, Moutinho, Semedo; Neto (Gibbs-White 88), A Traoré; Willian José (Fábio Silva 61).

Leicester City XI (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Justin, Soyuncu, Evans, R Pereira; Tielemans, Choudhury; Barnes, Maddison, Perez (Albrighton 61); Iheanacho (Vardy 61).

    Who scores more?

    1. DCL (FUL,MCI)
    2. Antonio (SHU) +4

        I disagree with this. DCL scored against TOT, MUN, and LIV

            not city are they

              well he did not get the chance yet..

            Look at the defensive records of those three clubs and compare with City's

          • Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            So what, City are a different beast

            DCL´s game is based on his physicality, aerial threat and poaching ability, all of that for Dias & Stones is like playing in the park on a sunday.

            1. El Presidente
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              And I have to say, even for the FUL match... that defense is no baggie defense...

            2. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year

              Why doesn’t Andy Caroll bag a hattrick against City every week then?

          I do, but worried he could get double digits against Fulham

        DCL is likely to get at least 4pts (2+2), so Antonio needs 9 (9-4pt hit) to make it worth it.
        Personally think DCL will get at least anassist or goal in one of his 2 games
        Who is best going forward?
        Probably Antonio
        I’m keeping DCL for double them transferring out to Bamford (I already have Antonio)

        1. Honourvolley
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          The hit is for DCL not Antonio

      6. poulteren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I have analysed this at length. West Ham have poor fixtures after this game. Sheffield united dont get beaten by many goals.

        I personally think DCl can score against anyone (much like yesterday). For a four point hit for Antonio it's a no brainer to go with DCL. There's no reason he cant score / win a penalty or assist against City (who will no doubt have players rested too)

      I was waiting for the tittle to be: Here’s Jonhy!

    5. wulfrunian

      3 months, 7 days ago

      I read Burnley-Fulham history and for a moment i thought that Jean-Michel Jarre scored the first Fulham goal back in 2018.

      Restating:

      Imagine at the end of it all, the FPL runner up loses the whole thing by just two points because he had zero points from Soucek in GW23!

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He can definitely appeal!

        1. Rupert The Horse

          • 8 Years

          Ha

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        As topical as this is, it happens so often you could apply that to so many players. Bednarek last week etc

        1. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          This.

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I agree. But shouldn't there be some mechanism of rewarding retrospective points in cases like this. Whatever points the player was at when he was sent off.

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Possibly but besides the point as it evens out. It’s happened to me loads of times over the years and happened to others. This week it wasn’t me. So I don’t mind either way.

      3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years

        At which point they'll probably forget all the jam they would have got at other times to be ranked that high

      4. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Crying over spilt milk. How many times have bs VAR decisions gone against my players, don’t see me carrying on like that...

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I am not complaining. In fact I don't have any need to. Plus VAR is a different scenario. Just wondering if there needs to be a change in how these things are managed from an FPL point of view. At the end of the day its just a fantasy points based game.

    7. Steve The Spud

      Is it the day after tomorrow level snow in Leeds yet ?

        Wait I just realised, I actually need the game to be cancelled.

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years

        You are really desperate for it to be cancelled. You have asked a related question on every page. Hahaha!

          got him 2 weeks ago

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I already have him but if I didn’t I wouldn’t be getting him in. Waste of money.

          1. Parsnips
              3 months, 7 days ago

              yeh he's going for Dallas next week for me

                • 9 Years

                Good move ... I have Dallas so thinking Shaw to replace him unless something more pressing arises.

            No, don’t see the logic personally, sooner get a burnley defender for a million less and higher CS potential

            1. Little Red Lacazette
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              I already have Pope, getting another Burnley def too much?

                • 1 Year
                3 months, 7 days ago

                I don’t think so, good differential with many having other moves to prioritise, wouldn’t take a hit for it tho

          3. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year

            Everton defence is a joke. Not paying 6.0 for one

              Not the worst assumption on here, some lad was waiting on his DCL points to come off his bench cos Soucek got 0 😉

            A) Salah/Son + Wilson > Grealish + DCL
            B) Maddison + Wilson > Raphinha + DCL

            A) allows me to finally get Grealish, but I'd have to ditch one of Salah or Son.

            B) allows me to get Raphinha (DGW25), but I'd still be without Grealish.

              3 months, 7 days ago

              Six of one ... either could be rested over the two games ... if you can afford Sterling I’d say he has a better chance of playing both.

            5. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Nope. Gundy over Sterling yes I'd say. But there's still that nagging doubt over Foden's spot in the team.

              He'll play some of the games, but I doubt he'll be a mainstay like Gundy & Dias for example.

              1. rnrd
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                thing is.. If I get Sterling, I don't think I'm captaining him over Gundigan (who I also have).

                To be honest, I think there's a real fear factor with Sterling because he offers very little except tap-ins (it does count as FPL though indeed..)

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                3 months, 6 days ago

                I have no doubt after his last goal. Compared to sterling who got it served on a silverplate

              On paper no, but who knows what can happen... if you need that one punt to climb the ranks Foden is a great choice he´s just 2.4% owned in the top 10k...

              James Justin is an absolute legend in my eyes.

              Owned since GW1 @ 4.5mil and I've even managed to bench him for a lot of his blanks and played him for all his hauls 🙂

              He'll be 5.5 next year by the way, at which point he'll be slightly overpriced - or at least there'll be other better value options available. So, I'll enjoy owning him for the rest of this season before we inevitably become estranged next season.

              1. Eh, just one more thing ...

                Yes, he’s been great for me ... sadly I’ve benched him for a couple of hauls though ... grrrr.

                Legendary thorn in the eye each gw for me, as I sold him in gw3 on the grounds of not being nailed

                  Ouch. I'd be lying if I said I'd never considered selling him to be fair.

                  I thought he'd be out of the team and a bit-part player by now. But fair play to the lad, can't see anyone knocking him off his perch anymore

                  Justin & Bruno have been in my squad since GW1.
                  People said Bruno was expensive at £10,5
                  Next season he will be at £12m

                Interesting transfer decision this week.

                My plan is to upgrade Mitchell.

                A) Mitchell > Dallas - seems straight forward, will get Dallas for (wol/SOU + AVL)
                B) Mitchell > Shaw - much less popular, but if United beat WHU, they will double in 26 giving (NEW + cpl/che)

                  If by interesting, you mean very boring. Then yes, it's a fascinating transfer! 😉

                  I always go for the DGWer in choices like this. So A) for me.

                  Can't go wrong with either though to be fair

                    The decision is interesting, the transfer isn't haha.

                    Basically exploring whether cashing in on points now (GW25) or later (GW26 double). It also has ramifications longer term because I'm unlikely to swap the player in future.

                  B if MUN beat WHU - which I don't think they will - so probably A

                  I don't trust Shaw to play enough minutes in a double to be worth it.

                  Got both in my team. Shaw excites me more than Dallas (poor choice of words there, haha!) Wait and see how the FA cups pan-out. If Utd are to have a double in 26, I would go for Shaw. Seems integral to Utd's creativity and chance creation.

                    He was until he got dropped... One of a number of mistakes I've made this year.

                  Ben said in one of his tweets that we should know by the gw25, but there is also a good chance to find it out during the gw25. Before gw24 therefore doesn't sound much probable.

                  Ben Crellin confirmed or EPL/FPL confirmed?! I doubt we will get official confirmation before 24 deadline

                    But we should know at least who has progressed from FA cup, no?

                      FA cup round 5 last game is on Thurs. That doesn't mean EPL will start rearranging games before 24 deadline

                  We can garner some information

                  Hopefully many will fall for the lazy assumption that the games cancelled in 29 will automatically be moved en masse to 26.

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years

                    I think recent fixture changes suggest it is highly likely. They seem to want to move fixtures forward proactively than postpone the decision until later. We all thought LEE/SOU double would be in GW26. But it seems they don't mind moving it earlier even if it clashes with CL games.

                    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
                      • 6 Years
                      3 months, 7 days ago

                      So by that logic Villa v Spurs (postponed weeks ago) is more likely to go into 26 than a postponed 29 game involving those two sides.

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

                        Yes. I think so.

                        They put Everton - City in before Southampton - City. And I think the COVID postponements are getting priority generally.

                        I think Villa and Spurs will play each other in DGW26.

                        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
                          • 6 Years
                          3 months, 6 days ago

                          So the lazy assumption all postponed games from 29 are going to be put en masse into 26 isn't necessarily correct, as I said.

                getting lowton in this week means a slight improvement in the strong bench option ,he is useful dgwk 24 and qualifies as fodder afterwards,it looks like vaccine is winning and please,please please covid wont be an issue soon.

                  city will score ,so he needs an assist v/s fulham ,so it pretty much reverts to taking a hit for a defender in one game ,upside is you will have him for the future, so just about yes.

                I need to replace Zaha. Who do u recommend?

                A) Rashford
                B) Lookman
                C) Someone else?

                Have Raphina, Son, Fernandes, Gundo, DCL, Bamford, Antonio

                  I've got Rasford and he's been doing my head in to be honest.

                  But, I do hold some hopes over the next couple that he can come good on his promising attacking stats

                Looking for some thoughts on the transfer suggestions below. Currently already have 3 City

                A. Johnstone to Pope and roll 2nd FT.
                B. Stones and Soucek to Lowton and Foden (Switch from City 2def 1mid to 1def and 2mid)

                2FT 6.7itb
                Johnstone*
                Cancelo Digne Stones
                Salah Bruno Gundo Soucek*
                Bamford Antonio DCL

                Really struggling with DGW planning at the moment (in kind of a good way).

                A) Is there any point in using a change to get Pope in for a non-playing keeper when I have McCarthy at home to wolves this week and then he has a DGW next week?

                B) Alternatively, I could go for a Burnley defender (for Coufal or Justin), but my back three is Cancelo, Stones (both double) and Coufal (SHU).

                Any thoughts? Am I better letting it roll and just getting a playing keeper ahead of DGW26? Cheers

                  Last week started building a bench boost for DGW24 with 2 FT's (Pope & Rudiger). Was going to tack on Lowton and 1 other cheapish mid (Lookman, Doucure, etc) until DCL caught fire at the weekend and I dont own him so now thinking of tearing up the BB and just getting DCL in on his own with this weeks Free.

                  Personally, I dont this this DGW it anything to get too excited about apart from City assets (which we all own anyway) and DCL on his own. Beyond that, I dont think its worth the trouble. I could be wrong.

                    That’s the way I’m starting to lean now. Four DGW players this week and 2FTs. Leaves me with three DGW players for next week and the extra free transfer. Could be useful getting Kane back and building a BB for GW26 (as well as BGW29)

                Start Grealish or Watkins against Brighton? I’m thinking Grealish but Watkins seems in better nick

                    Watkins ... finally found where that barn door is.

                      That goal was a wicked deflection though. So I haven't seen much evidence that has found the barn door (as yet)

                  How many points would they score this week you think? Thinking of whether to bench boost...

                  A) Grealish (bha)
                  B) Bamford (ars)
                  C) Coufal (SHU)
                  D) Dallas (ars)
                  E) Richarlison (FUL, MANC)

                    blank (looks tired), assist, clean, no clean sheet but always possible he'll assist/score, double blank. I would save the BB for one of the future DGWs, eg 26

                      Team dependent. I would definitely get in DCL.

                      I am doing this. Hard to ditch Antonio when he's got Sheff Utd home but they look much tighter right now and Antonio has had a big workload for a player out of action so long, so I can see his minutes being managed for this one or getting injured early on. And DCL essential for the DGW.

                            Defo not selling Justin that's for sure.

                            Can you afford Mitchell > Mee? Then I'd bench Bamford or Soucek this week and play Mee

                                  Soucek red has been overturned. No, I don't prefer Soucek over Antonio by a long way.

                            Who scores more this GW:

                                  I think Bamford could match Mee and Digne. I can't see Son getting more than 2 points against City.

                              RLC really hasn't done much of note so far at Fulham...

                                yeah would have always said RLC in the past but his stats are baaaaad right now. Lookman might be good for a goal. I'd look at Ward-Prowse or Minamino tbh for following week
