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.

    Is any of those worth a hit?

    A) Martinez ➡ Mendy / Schmeichel
    B) Bamford ➡ Ihenacho
    C) no hit

    1. lilmessipran

    4. The Hunt

      No hit. I suspect Martinez will get a 10 pointer at the weekend and Bamford has a reasonable chance of scoring against the Manchester City B team.

    I thought I had a reasonable plan for my wildcard but starting to have doubts. Should I pull the trigger?

    CURRENT TEAM

    Martinez / Pope
    Shaw / Stones / Dunk / Dallas / Targett
    Fernandes / Odegaard / Lookman / Raphinha / Son
    Bamford / Kane / Antonio

    WILDCARD DRAFT

    Schmeichel / Forster
    Dias / Coady / TAA / Azpilicueta / Shaw
    Bruno / Salah / Lingard / Raphinha / Jota
    Kane / Iheanacho / Davis

    Any advice welcome. thank you.

    1. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years

      Wildcard team looks good but Spurs have a double next week so I would want Son for that.

      1. Plagued by indecision
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 15 days ago

        thanks! I keep seeing rumours of bigger double weeks in 35/37. Do you know where I could find info on those? I have a FH to use as well.

      Cresswell over Stones for me.

  6. wulfrunian
    • 4 Years

    Do you think's its worth to go with 4-5-1 in the wc?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Yes imo

      Only issue is GW33 blank for Kane

    Hi all, couple of quick questions

    1) Mendy or Leno as set and forget gk for rest of reason?
    2) Rudi or James?
    3) Has the boat on Shaw sailed? mixed fixtures plus shaw might start the EL games meaning that telles starts pl games
    4) Thoughts on masuku? he is nailed in the back 5 but what would prompt west ham to revert back to a back 4?

    1. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 15 days ago

      1) Mendy
      2) Rudi
      3) I still think he is fairly nailed. Might bring him in myself for GW33.
      4) Tough to say. It seemed to be the preferred formation when he was fit earlier in the season so maybe that was always Moyes' intention to revert back to back 5 once he was back from injury.

    2. King of Kings.

    3. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I'd go Shaw

  10. potatoace
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    A lot of "sterling(c) will start" chatter because he didn't play yesterday.

    Fact is , sterling has only started 1 game (fa cup v eve) in the last 6.

    There's no guarantee, none at all

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Too much cash for a bit player

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Also, never captain Sterling.

      He's the ultimate troll.

      Learnt that the hard way this season.

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      He is a hibernator. Let them buy him and learn the hard way.

    4. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Also, mcy don't play to his "strength" (ahem) much anymore. ie cut in from byline for a tap in.

  11. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Barnes to Lingard or Jota?

    Can get the other for free next week

  12. CR7 is Home
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    WC done - G2G ?

    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Rudiger
    Salah Jota Son Maddison
    Kane Ings (c) Nacho
    Bench - (Forster) Coady Moura Ward

    0.6itb

    1. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Looks good, nice Ings punt. Only worry would be Rudiger but let's see if he plays tonight. Plenty of Bench cover.

    2. Shark
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Like it. Same starting 11 as mine except I have DCL instead of Ings. I also have Dias.

  13. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    When's the best time to free hit now?

    Regrettably avoided using it GW29, intending to use it GW33. But pretty sure I can navigate those blanks with little fuss.

    Does that leave DGW35 as the best option?

  14. The Tinkerman
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Worth a -4 to drop Bale here, or save till next week and get Son for free?

    Sanchez
    Dias, Coady, Rudiger
    Salah, Jota, Bale, Bruno
    Kane, Watkins, Nacho

    Martinez; Reguilon, Veltman, Bissouma

  15. Quan MisTaka
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Would you do

    Gundo + Bamford to Salah + Nacho (-4)

    1. The Tinkerman
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Probably Yh

    2. Quan MisTaka
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      or B) Raph instead of Gundo out

  16. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Help needed. Already done Maja -> Iheanacho move this week to beat price rise, given Maja blanks in 33. Is Cresswell -> Rudiger for a -4 hit a good move to free up the exact funds for Gundo to Jota next week? This move would be dependant on Antonio not being out for too long (although struggling to think of a half-decent replacement atm).

    Team is:
    Martinez
    Dias - Alonso - Reguillon
    Salah (C) - Bruno - Son - Gundo
    Kane - Iheanacho - Antonio

    Subs: Fabri, Raphinha, Cresswell, Burn.

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      I would wait a week and assess. No rush to get Rudiger.

      1. Tinfoil Deathstar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah it's more about getting Jota in tbh. I'd have to take a hit to get him in next week anyway so it's just whether I'd benefit more from having Chelsea defensive double-up for the Palace fixture as well (assuming both Rudi and Alonso play).

        Could potentially swap Son for Jota in GW33, but conscious that Spurs have Sheff Utd in 34.

  17. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Got 2FT. What would you do here?

    Raph to Jota, then roll the other FT?

    Areola
    Rudi, Tierney (if fit), Digne
    Bruno, Raph, Lingard, KDB, Gundo
    Kane, DCL

    Bench: Martinez, Bamford, Targett, Dallas

    1. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Would try and do KDB to Salah, but it not I'd go with Jota transfer

    2. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      DCL to Ings?

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Gundo to Jota

  18. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Anything you'd change here on WC? Sterling to become Fernandes next week.

    Mendy
    Rudiger Shaw Coady TAA Dias
    Sterling (C) Son Jota Salah Lingard
    Kane Ihenacho Davis

    1. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Yeah I like the Sterling punt for one week. Not seen too many contemplating this either so could be a great differential. Rest of team looks very good.

  19. Pukkipartyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Is Sterling good one week punt? Maybe C. and then move him to Son?

    1. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      I'm doing it

  20. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Play Maja or Bamford?

    1. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Wouldn't go anywhere near Maja - Mitrovic is back up top for Fulham.

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 15 days ago

        He was a terrible pick couple weeks ago. Now I’m stuck with him 🙁

    2. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Just sold Maja for Nacho. Got him on my WC in 26 and has done nothing for me and now appears to be second-choice. Would play Bamford personally.

    Should I WC my current team below yet or stick it out?

    Martinez (Sanchez)
    Dias / Digne / Azpi (Dallas / Loswton)
    Salah / Raphinha / Mount / Son / Gundo
    Kane / DCL (Bamford)

    main issues are Bamford, DCL, Digne - not sure how to plan the next few weeks with DGW & BGW as been very out of touch within the last few weeks of this!
