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

      i would want at least jota or salah

    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

    1. TheBiffas
      5 months, 16 days ago

      wc for me

    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
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days 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
        5 months, 16 days 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
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 16 days 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

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Evans, Castagne, Fofana

    3. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

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

      1. TheBiffas
        5 months, 16 days 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
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Trent should be fine, cant say the same about Jota

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

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

  6. Thomas Magnum
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 16 days 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
      5 months, 16 days 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
        5 months, 16 days 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
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Masuaku is one option 🙂

    2. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days 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
        5 months, 16 days 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
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 16 days 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
        5 months, 16 days ago

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

    4. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

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

      TAA/Robb, Cressw

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 16 days 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
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 16 days 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)

  7. FantasyClub
    5 months, 16 days ago

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

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days 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
        5 months, 16 days 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
          5 months, 16 days 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
            5 months, 16 days 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

  8. Mahjongking

    Chances of kdb start this weekend ?
    -4 to sell kdb for sterling isit too crazy?

    1. fr3d
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Close to 0%

  9. fr3d
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    If you could only start one?

    a) Nacho (whu)
    b) DCL (bha)

    1. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Nacho for me.

    2. footballcandy
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      DCL

  10. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    Thoughts on these moves?

    DCL, Bamford ->
    Vardy, Ihenacho -4

    Areola (Sanchez)
    TAA Digne Dunk (Dallas, Targett)
    Salah Son Jota Lingard (Raphinha)
    Kane DCL Bamford

    1FT 2.2 ITB

    1. TheBiffas
      5 months, 16 days ago

      not keen on the double up. one of dcl and bamford to nacho for me

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

  11. Jet5605
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    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

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

    Martinez - Raph - Dallas - Konsa

  12. Lemongrab
    • 12 Years

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

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

    1. TheBiffas
      5 months, 16 days ago

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

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        This, impact player

      2. Lemongrab
        • 12 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Yeah fair point.

  13. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    Anyone considering Sterling?
    Nice Bale replacement for me & easy to Salah if needed or just go Salah?

    1. fr3d
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Moving from one trap to another. Not for me.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Need a big differential?

    2. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      my current WC has sterling(c) in, and then will move to Son for the double

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Had a shocker & 50k drop need to start radical decisions.
        Last one payed off Lingz weeks ago

    Hi guys, sorry this question may be annoying but is Phillips nailed?

  16. Lost in fantasy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 16 days ago

    Bruyne, bamford, DCL > Vardy, Lacca, jota. -4p

    Yey or Ney?

  17. Pedaso Pirates

    5 months, 16 days ago

    Would really appreciate feedback on my first WC draft:

    Mendy Forster
    TAA Dias Shaw Coady Reguilon
    Bruno Jota Son Lingard Neto
    Kane Nacho DCL

    0 ITB

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      id look to keep some money itb
      defence too expensive unless guarantee to go 4 atb most weeks

      1. Pedaso Pirates
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

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

  18. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    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

  19. FantasyClub
    5 months, 16 days ago

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

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

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

      1. FantasyClub
        5 months, 16 days ago

        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

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

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

  20. FantasyClub
    5 months, 16 days ago

    Seems like only 1 week on the sidelines for Antonio

  21. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

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

  22. Paulie Walnuts
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    Stones or Dallas to TAA

  23. bazbestos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 15 days ago

    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?
