ICT Analysis: Jimenez finding form

The Scout says Wolves forward has stepped up his output ahead of a favourable schedule

The Scout continues a series focusing on the ICT Index, which helps Fantasy Premier League managers look beyond points to determine player potential.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) £7.1m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward delivered his season-high haul of 10 points in the Gameweek 8 win over Manchester City.

Jimenez supplied the assists as Adama Traore (£5.0m) struck both goals in a 2-0 victory for the Midlands side.

The Mexican's underlying statistics show he has been a major source of creativity in recent matches.

Jimenez has supplied eight key passes in the last four Gameweeks, joint-second with Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) among FPL forwards.

And his three big chances created are bettered only by the Brazilian’s five.

Top five ICT Creativity GW5-8
Forward Chances created Big chances created Assists ICT Creativity
Deulofeu 10 2 1 117
Firmino 8 5 2 104
Jimenez 8 3 2 90
Haller 7 0 1 90
Pukki 7 1 1 78

These figures show an improvement since Jimenez's early-season displays.

He provided just three chances for team-mates in the opening four Gameweeks.

Crucially, this upturn in creativity has not affected his goal threat.

His eight shots inside the penalty area and two big chances in his last four fixtures are identical to his figures between Gameweeks 1 and 4.

Finding favour again?

Having started the season at £7.5m, Jimenez has dropped £0.4m in price and sits in just 8.6 per cent of squads.

But his schedule could soon raise his popularity.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of Wolves's next eight opponents score just two.

That gives Jimenez the chance to stake a claim for place in FPL front lines as Nuno Espirito Santo's men look to build on their win at Etihad Stadium.
