The 2021/22 Premier League season starts tomorrow, which means millions of managers across the world are finalising their Fantasy Premier League teams.
Players are all set to try and outdo last season’s points tallies and win their mini-leagues against their friends.
Some Wolves fans may want to put some of Bruno Lage’s players in their side and here is a look at how much all of them cost, and our analysis.
- Jose Sa £5m
- John Ruddy £4.5m
- Andreas Söndergaard £4m
Sa is expected to start the season as number one goalkeeper following his summer arrival.
That said, Ruddy might offer more competition than he did for Rui Patricio last season.
Wolves were defensively solid for much of Nuno Espirito Santo’s reign, but it remains to be seen whether Bruno Lage will sacrifice some of that stability in search of more attacking flair.
Third-choice Söndergaard might find his way into some squads as a cheap substitute goalkeeper.
- Willy Boly £5m
- Romain Saiss £5m
- Nelson Semedo £5m
- Conor Coady £4.5m
- Marcal £4.5m
- Jonny £4.5m
- Max Kilman £4.5m
- Yerson Mosquera £4.5m
- Rayan Ait-Nouri £4.5m
- Ki-Jana Hoever £4m
Boly will miss the start of the season, so isn’t worth picking straight away. Saiss offers a threat from set-pieces, but could be on the move before the end of the month, so represents a risk.
Nelson Semedo should offer an attacking threat and Conor Coady is an ever-present, which is an underrated quality in FPL.
Rayan Ait-Nouri played on the left of midfield at times during pre-season, and if that continues, he could be a decent out-of-position pick to get attacking returns.
Defensive injuries mean Ki-Jana Hoever might feature in the opening weeks of the season, and a £4m defender who gets 90 minutes on a regular basis can be a blessing for fantasy managers.
- Pedro Neto £6.5m
- Adama Traore £6m
- Francisco Trincao £6m
- Ruben Neves £5.5m
- Daniel Podence £5.5m
- Joao Moutinho £5m
- Leander Dendoncker £6m
- Morgan Gibbs-White £4.5m
- Owen Otasowie £4.5m
Pedro Neto will be a decent pick at £6.5m once he comes back from injury.
Adama Traore might pick up some assists now Raul Jimenez is back fit, but his end-product is not consistent enough and that’s a problem in FPL.
Francisco Trincao is obviously an unknown quantity but if he can turn his eye-catching skills into match-winning performances, he could be a bargain.
If Morgan Gibbs-White can force his way into Lage’s starting XI on a regular basis, he could be the best £4.5m midfielder in the entire league.
- Raul Jimenez £7.5m
- Fabio Silva £6m
Raul Jimenez could be a real bargain at £7.5m if he replicates the form he showed in his first two seasons in the Premier League.
He has been eased back into action during pre-season and should be ready to start the opening game of the campaign at Leicester.
There won’t be too many managers rushing to pick Fabio Silva after his maiden season in England, but he’ll hope to improve this time around.
Coady is currently the player selected by the highest percentage of managers, at 8 per cent.
Wolves’ tricky start to the season, against Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United might be putting FPL managers off initially, time will tell who proves to be a shrewd pick.
