What impact will Jonny’s injury have on Wolves clean sheet potential?

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are having second thoughts about purchasing Wolves players ahead of the Gameweek 31 swing of fixtures.

Players such as Conor Coady (£4.8m) and Romain Saïss (£4.9m) have appealed strongly in the build-up to second-Wildcard season, especially with the obvious set-piece threat, but recent developments may have damaged their all-important clean sheet potential.

Defensive resilience seemed to have returned to the club with the reintroduction of Jonny Otto (£5.4m) in early February after a six month absence with a serious knee problem.

However, a hugely unfortunate reoccurrence of that injury in training raises the question, especially after Monday night’s slump at home to West Ham, of whether Wolves’ defensive assets can still be trusted for the FPL run in.

In this article, we shall use data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area to answer that question.

    Would really appreciate feedback on this wildcard team:

    Martinez Forster
    TAA Azpi Lindelof Reguilon Coady
    Bruno Son Mount Maddison JLingz
    Kane Wood FSilva

    Avoiding City entirely, next move would be to take out son and reguilon for whoever looks good then

      Mulling over whether to WC to get rid of Leeds/City/DCL and bring in Jota and others or just play my one FT. 4.7 ITB

      A - Play WC
      B - Raphinha > Jota
      C - Bamford > Vardy

      Pope
      Coufal - Stones - Dunk
      Son - Bruno - Lingard - Gundo
      Kane - Bamford - DCL

      Martinez - Raph - Dallas - Konsa

        Amartey 3.9 Leicester defender. Any chance he will continue starting?

        If not, who are the 3 x most nailed Leicester defenders until end of season, you think?

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 8 hours ago

          Evans, Castagne, Fofana

          i'm on castagne on WC, fixtures are good so i am all in on Leicester

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 5 Years
            10 days, 7 hours ago

            Does Castagna show signs of an offensive return? I see he’s in a preferable position playing as the wing back but seems he never gets Goals/Assists

            1. dbeck

              • 3 Years
              10 days, 7 hours ago

              not really but its above Evans and Fofana for xGI for the season. Evans is nailed but castange is only 0.2 more. Worth spending that 0.2 on imo

              However, still havent ruled Schemical

          Thanx. Amartey just a one hit wonder starter, I guess..

          1. TheBiffas
              10 days, 7 hours ago

              he's probably alright until soyuncu reocvers from covid

          Does anyone have this issue with the site? (Chrome desktop)

          Sometimes the first word I've typed in the comment box is clickable. Only ever the first word.

          I thought it might be the interference of an extension, but that's unclear. Clicking on the word sends me to a FFS page (can't remember which).

          Not sure how to replicate it, but it happens quite frequently. It's annoying because it makes it hard to edit your comments before posting, and can mean you lose your comment when directed to a new page.

            No, haven't experienced it.

            Anyone else have this?

            Can you take screenshots next time and mail me with them?

              Sure thing 🙂

          Safe to bring in TAA & Jota this GW, or is there significant rotation danger?

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            10 days, 8 hours ago

            Trent should be fine, cant say the same about Jota

          2. Thomas Magnum
            • 5 Years
            10 days, 7 hours ago

            I’d be comfortable with Trent but not so with Jota, same goes for any week really

        6. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          10 days, 7 hours ago

          Not the most exciting question but important imo. Who are the best/most exciting defender punts/differentials for here on out?
          Other than the classics TAA/Robb Digne etc

          1. FantasyClub
              10 days, 7 hours ago

              I personally cannot wait to get rid of Digne, been wanting to do it for a couple weeks now but had other priorities. I benched him last GW. Everton cannot defend.

              1. Thomas Magnum
                • 5 Years
                10 days, 7 hours ago

                Yeah I’m staying well away, wondering if there was someone similar than him in the way he attacks or just fun to watch/ have a punt on that we may be overlooking

                1. FantasyClub
                    10 days, 7 hours ago

                    Masuaku is one option 🙂

              2. footballcandy
                • 4 Years
                10 days, 7 hours ago

                How do you like my defence on WC?

                Lloris (GK) - TAA - Fofana - Coady - Philips

                (Monitoring Holding until deadline tho...)

                1. Thomas Magnum
                  • 5 Years
                  10 days, 7 hours ago

                  I like it all other than Lloris, just can’t trust their defense even with the double gameweek. Unless you’re set on him maybe downgrade him and use the extra money to spread around your side, if not maybe upgrade to Ederson even for City defender if you can cover week 33

              3. Lemongrab

                10 days, 7 hours ago

                Mendy (MCI). The very definition of a punt but if he gets the easier prem games he could rack up some decent scores.

                1. Thomas Magnum
                  • 5 Years
                  10 days, 7 hours ago

                  Ohhh never thought about him, could transfer Dias to him, maybe that’s crazy but damn it would be fun when he starts

                10 days, 7 hours ago

                Unusual to see the word exciting & Digne in the same sentence

                TAA/Robb, Cressw

                1. Thomas Magnum
                  • 5 Years
                  10 days, 7 hours ago

                  I’m not interested in him but whenever I watch their games (not often) he seems to always be getting balls in the box and in advanced positions

                  1. Pep bites Kun
                    • 4 Years
                    10 days, 7 hours ago

                    Highest scoring PL def on 10 assists. Immediate fixtures are a bit mixed, but look good from GW34-38 (bur, EVE, bha, wba, SOU)

            • FantasyClub
                10 days, 7 hours ago

                Is Dawson to Masuaku stupid? I just like how attacking Masuaku is and he is 0.2 cheaper...

                1. Thomas Magnum
                  • 5 Years
                  10 days, 7 hours ago

                  I’d hold off until you see how nailed he is personally, he does seem a great option though if he can hold the spot

                  1. FantasyClub
                      10 days, 7 hours ago

                      Yeah that would be the sensible thing to do. I actually wanted to get him in straight away last GW and look he assisted already

                      1. Thomas Magnum
                        • 5 Years
                        10 days, 7 hours ago

                        Yeah he would’ve been a good move but who was to know he’d get an assist and look so good, he’s definitely pushed Cresswell away from popularity around here

                        1. FantasyClub
                            10 days, 7 hours ago

                            I think I’ll just take the punt on him, if he’s benched can’t complain at 4.3m, Dawson’s annoyed me with them 2 own goals

                      Which option looks best? 1 FT and 4.7 ITB. Still have WC but not sure to play this week or next

                      A - Raph > Jota
                      B - Bamford > Iheanacho
                      C - Play WC and get rid of City/Leeds/DCL/Dunk etc

                      Double rise for Jota already and it's only Wednesday.

                      He's getting rested at the weekend isn't he

                          maybe, but does it really matter? he loves scoring off the bench

                              Thanks. I have an eye on BB in GW32 so looking at reliable starters

                          with the high EO, thoughts on going without Son on wildcard?
                          i'd most likely lose him in gw33 anyway so looking at trying to get ahead of the curve elsewhere

                            Is it time for Martinez to go if you can afford Mendy or Ederson?

                              still think he's a great option especially for dgw. I bought at 4.5m so easier keep

                                  I bought him at 4.5 also which makes him just as easy to swap with Mendy having made 0.4 on him. Big fixture swings

                                    villa double could be gw35 when chelsea face city
                                    considering both on wildcard

                                Althought i got no fate with sterling, might end up -4 to get and capt him

                                Stones or Dallas to TAA

                                I am in quite a unique position of still having Wildcard, bench boost and free hit left. Is anyone else have similar and if so what strategy are you going with?
