In this Fanteam Premier League 1M article, we will do an in-depth Wolves Fantasy preview. We will cover what changed during the offseason, what do we expect from them, and which players to pay attention to while building your Premier League squad.
This article is part of our Fanteam Premier League 1M Fantasy previews. Check out our Fantasy analysis for all 20 Premier League teams.
19/20 in a glance – Wolves
Last year, Wolves was one of the most impressive teams of the season, finishing up 7th, and going deep in the Europa League. Adama Traore drew a lot of attention, but the defensive line was constantly on fire, with Doherty and Jonny being among the top fantasy defenders of the season. Their attractive play style was great for season-long fantasy, and with the coach staying in the team, we expect more of it and have high hopes once again
Transfer Activity – Wolves
- Fabio Silva (5.5M – FOR)
- Marcal (4.5M – DEF)
- Will Norris
- Morgan Gibbs-White
- Matt Doherty
What to expect for 20/21 – Wolves
Uncertainty is hovering above Wolves in the offseason, with many key players being in the transfer gossip every day. Jimenéz (9.0M – Forward) and Traore (6.5M – Midfielder) are top targets for many European clubs, and if they end up being transferred we will see many changes in the Fantasy outputs. Jonny Castro (5.5 – Defender) was seriously injured in the summer restart and will be missed from the defensive line, which is already hurt by Doherty’s transfer.
We expect Wolves to play a similar style, though, and many players (especially defenders) to step up. The strong defense will certainly show up again, and the great chemistry will lead the way. The newcomer Fabio Silva (5.5M – FOR) is a question mark, as we don’t know yet wat the £40M signing’s place in the rotation will be.
The stars – Crystal Palace
- Raul Jimenéz (9.0M – FWD): We still don’t know where Jimenéz will be playing until the end of the season, but he’s definitely the best fantasy player of the team. Jimenéz was scoring non-stop last year, and we expect him to fill the stat sheets once again in 20/21.
- Adama Traore (6.5M – MID): Traore was one of the most popular Premier League players last season, and his fantasy production wasn’t bad at all. He was rumored to be transferred to Man.City, but if he stays in the team he will definitely grow and produce even more this year.
Players to watch – Wolves
- Ruben Vinagre (4.0M – DEF): Vinagre is possibly the best value-for-money defender at the 4.0M price level. With Jonny Castro (5.5M – DEF) injured for the foreseeable future, expect Vinagre to have a solid role at the start of the season.
- Daniel Podence (5.5M – MID): Podence came to the team in the winter transfer period from Olympiakos and didn’t get many chances during spring. But after the restart, he took over Jota’s (6.5M – FWD) spot on the starting squad and showed great signs of an attacking threat. Keep an eye on him, and definitely get him if Traore (6.5M – MID) ends up being transferred.
- Fabio Silva (5.5M – FOR): The 18-year old Portuguese striker is coming with and astonishing €40M move, joining the top 10 most expensive teenagers of all time. The “New Ronaldo” is still unknown to everyone though, with only 12 games and 1 goal for Porto last year. We don’t know how much his playing time will be, or if he’ll take over Jimenéz’ (9.0M – FWD) or Jota’s (6.5M – FOR) spot in the squad. Definitely keep an eye on him though!
Key takeaways: Wolves Fantasy preview
If Wolves stays intact and healthy, we will see another strong fantasy season. The defense will lead the way, with key defenders and goalkeepers being possible fantasy bargains. The wings, alongside the almighty Raul Jimenéz (9.0M – FWD), will again be popular picks among fantasy managers, having great chances to score against any team.Play now
