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

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Tempted to risk it on Jota but probably Salah.

    2. Reece’s Pieces
        3 months, 17 days ago

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

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Might make that swap in GW33.

    3. Gudjohnsen

      How is Grealish still owned by 17%?

        1. Holmes

      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
          3 months, 17 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

      2. Starskyb

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

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

        Cheers

        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?

            Yep

          2. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Want to use it next week and be done with it

        2. aapoman
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

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

      5. Reece’s Pieces
          3 months, 17 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
            3 months, 17 days ago

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

            1. Reece’s Pieces
                3 months, 17 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

          2. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 17 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
                3 months, 17 days ago

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

                1. Thiagoagogo
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 17 days ago

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

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

                  1. Reece’s Pieces
                      3 months, 17 days ago

                      The game against Villa will tell us a lot then

                        • 5 Years

                        7 2?

                • 1 Year
                3 months, 17 days ago

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

                  3 months, 17 days ago

                  A

                2. Reece’s Pieces
                    3 months, 17 days ago

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

                    A for me

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

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

                  1. aapoman
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 17 days ago

                    Why not just Gundo to Salah?

                  2. Ajax Hamsterdam
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 17 days ago

                    Is gundo definitely not playing ?

                    1. DangerFC
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 17 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
                    3 months, 17 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.

                9. Ajax Hamsterdam
                  • 7 Years

                  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

                    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?

                        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

                  Remind me what the clamber is to triple up on them? Surely not Super Sub Jota?

                      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

                        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?

                            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

                    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

                    No city player worth the risk?

                    What about salah/jota?

                      3 months, 17 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!

                        I’d rather risk gundo tbh but I can see the appeal

                        Maddison is a new dimension

                    Going with Ings for the same reason

                    Not a mad call

                    Haven’t ruled out Lingz - Leicester have been pretty moderate themselves.

                    Looks good. Maybe play Tierney?

                  I got Lucky with Pereira in for Gündogan last gw. Should I keep and play him now? Think I could save the transfer:

                  Martínez
                  Cancelo, Digne, Lowton
                  Pereira(VC) , Salah(C) , Fernandes, Gündogan, Mount
                  Antonio, Kane

                  McGill, Bamford, Shaw, Struijk
                  1 free transfer, 1.7 million in the bank

                    Doubt Antonio is gonna play

                      If he is out Nachos could come in but not sure yet.

                  As a 5th Def
                  Coufal or Coady

                    I currently have Coady, but actually looking for a downgrade as he will be B2 most of the upcoming gws...

                    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?

                    Should get one today in Arteta's pre-match presser (or the medical bulletin that Arsenal release).
