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.

      Think mahrez will play? He played full 90 last night. This was also my plan till he played the full 90

    Did Raphinha & Burn to Jota & Phillips for a hit yesterday.

    G2G?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      capt?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Tempted to risk it on Jota but probably Salah.

    2. Reece’s Pieces
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      At some point Gundo may need to go. Rapha swap in three games maybe

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Might make that swap in GW33.

  3. Gudjohnsen

    How is Grealish still owned by 17%?

      dead teams

      1. Holmes

        or maybe trust Smith

  4. PogBruno

    Howz this WC draft looking? (0.6ITB)

    Mendy Forster
    TAA Shaw Rudiger // Coady Ward//
    Salah Jota Son Maddison Moura
    Kane Ings Nacho

    - FH33, BB35
    - Ward is included for BB35 with a likely double for Palace vs SHU and Saints
    - Moura for DGW and will be sold for Rafhina later on
    - Ings (c) vs WBA and got a double

    1. Reece’s Pieces
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      When you lay it out like that it’s hard to argue against. Wish they’d hurry up and sort those doubles for us

  5. Starskyb
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 8 days ago

    On a WC and got some either ors. Would appreciate opinions

    A) Salah or Jota?
    B) Philips or holding?
    D) son or KDB?

    Cheers

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Both
      Phillips
      Son

  6. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Bamford to

    A. Ings (C)
    B. Jesus (C)
    C. Keep Bamford

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

  7. Pukki Blinders

    2.8m left over on my WC draft... where would you upgrade?

    Mendy Forster
    Fofana Coady Rudiger Holding Phillips
    Salah Bruno Son Jota Neto
    Kane Nacho Vydra

    Currently thinking Vydra -> Watkins and Holding -> Shaw?

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      BB left?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yep

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Want to use it next week and be done with it

    2. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No Lingard? Would definetly have him over Neto. Nacho is also a bit risky imo. Could get dropped anytime.

  8. Reece’s Pieces
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Some advice appreciated.

    I just swapped Bale for Jota. Had planned Konsa to Trent but after his defensive woes last night (even though his crossing was brilliant) I’m now preferring Rapha > Lingard at -4

    Thoughts?

    1. DangerFC
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      If you plan on keeping lingard long term then yeah. He has a tricky fixture coming up.

      1. Reece’s Pieces
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I do. I’m quietly confident for his game vs Leicester this weekend and then get Newcastle next. He can be benched vs Chelsea the one after

  9. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I was watching the Man City game mostly.

    Just watched the Liverpool highlights, they defended like donkeys.

    Will need to score 4 or 5 to win.

    1. Reece’s Pieces
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Agree. It’s put me off Trent despite him looking strong going forward. Barely noticed Robertson playing

      1. Thia6o
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Me too! Plus not having Trent frees up more funds to use elsewhere.

      2. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        They're not gonna be playing Real in the prem though.

        1. Reece’s Pieces
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 8 days ago

          The game against Villa will tell us a lot then

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            7 2?

  10. Sloane426
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Can’t decide on this...2FTs
    (A) Tierney + Raphina > Phillips + Jota
    (B) Tierney + Raphina + Bamford > Trent + Jota + 4.2m fodder -4

    1. Sid07
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A

    2. Reece’s Pieces
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Tricky as Jota may get benched but can still score in 30m. Liverpool defence still sketchy.

      A for me

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yeah, that could be one move. Bamford to Wood and Gundogan to Jota, if possible, can also work

          1. Sid07
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Good suggestion, but have nothing itb

      1. DangerFC

        Would you do one this week and then nacho next week?

    • DangerFC

      Gundo to sterling worth a -4? This week. Would then plan on sterling to salah for free.

      1. aapoman
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Why not just Gundo to Salah?

      2. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Is gundo definitely not playing ?

        1. DangerFC
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          He isn't definitely not playing mate but with pep rotating it's a big risk to take. Especially if your near top of your leagues and fighting for the cash prizes.

      3. DangerFC
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think sterling will outscore salah this week and I am second in my league 60 points behind. I think he will offer a good differential.

    • Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Cheeky repost. Help greatly appreciated

      Do you think Iheanacho is still a good option ?

      Could do
      Stones to Phillips for free this week
      Then
      Mount and DCL to son and Iheanacho for free following gw

      Good moves ?

      Thank you

      1. DangerFC
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        They look good enough. I think stones will play this weekend though and get a clean sheet. Dgw plans look solid.

        Bit heavy up top. Swap Vardy for Inancho and upgrade elsewhere. Looks good though, can't see any weaknesses really. Do you want KDB?

          • 7 Years

          Cheers,
          I can downgrade Vardy and Upgrade Rdiger to TAA purely due to rotation risk

            1 month, 8 days ago

            IMO Rudiger is fairly nailed, after Saturday it looks as if Chelsea need him. I'd sooner sell Shaw or Coufal if I had to

          Aha, but they’ve a good run of fixtures - Jota is a boost and they won the last two

          Villa aren’t in a great place without grealish

          1. The Hunt

            Well, they did put seven past them in the reverse fixture 😀

              Fair enough they show poor form, but don't u think that's an anomaly?

              1. The Hunt
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Not sure if you're meaning the 7-2 game was an anomaly or Liverpool's run of home form. That score definitely was but it was the first sign this season that Liverpool were a shadow of the team they were in 19/20. As for the run of home form?...put it this way, I think Liverpool will have gone nine games without a home win by 5pm on Saturday.

      How is this WC draft? Son to become Salah after 32. 3.4ITB

      May change Emi but I want Lloris for the double.

      Lloris
      Rudiger TAA Dias
      Bruno Jota Lingard Son Neto
      Kane Nacho

      Martinez Watkins Shaw Mitchell

      1. The Hunt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think Son & Kane are enough Spurs for the double. I reckon there's a fairly reasonable chance that they won't keep a clean sheet until next season so I couldn't have Lloris.

      Don't all laugh at me here but..

      Ihenacho captain? His stats are great, West Ham haven't been that good defensively as of late. No particular stand out option this week so could be a good week to go a bit different

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        No city player worth the risk?

        What about salah/jota?

        1. Bury94
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Can't afford Salah and not gonna get Jota this week as I'm not sure he plays this weekend. Gundogan is an option but I like Nacho as a punt tbh!

            • 2 Years

            Maddison is a new dimension

        I'm probably ditching kdb for salah... Just seems pretty likely KDB isnt risked against leeds. Last time they played, Leeds pressure made KDB spend most of his time tracking and tackling (he made most tackles), does Pep really want KDB being run ragged before Dortmund next week? I brought KDB in on my WC last week with this fixture in mind but sometimes have to accept I've made a mistake and it wil be pretty pointless having 12m on the bench

      Talk to me about this WC draft please:

      Martinez
      TAA Dias Shaw Rudiger Dallas
      Bruno Son Jota Lingard Raphinha
      Kane Iheanacho Brewster

      5.6m - could do Son, Raph to Salah, Maddison either sooner or later.

      Can a Hammer supporter tell me the impact Declan will have on Soucek attacking opportunities? Will he have to cover Noble or is Noble a capable place holder for Rice?
