The Scout says Wolves defender has the fixtures to be a cut-price success at both ends of the pitch

For managers who are considering playing their second Wildcard in Fantasy Premier League, The Scout suggests targets to consider.

Romain Saiss (WOL) £4.4m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back has been one of the standout aerial threats among defenders this season.

Saiss has produced 13 headed shots in the opening 25 Gameweeks, second only to the 21 of Yerry Mina (£5.3m) of Everton.

Furthermore, his totals of six big chances and seven shots on target are the third and fourth-highest respectively among defenders in FPL.

As a result, the 29-year-old has provided two goals and an assist over his 21 Gameweek appearances.

Although Saiss has managed only three clean sheets, his potential for defensive returns has been boosted by the return of Willy Boly (£4.7m) from injury in Gameweek 25.

Wolves immediately kept their first clean sheet since Gameweek 15, drawing 0-0 with Manchester United.

Indeed, four of their five shutouts this season have come in the nine matches in which Boly has played.

Wolves' schedule after hosting Leicester City on Friday further raises the appeal of Saiss as a cut-price source of points.

Between Gameweeks 27 to 32 Wolves face five opponents who are currently sitting in the bottom six places in the Premier League.

GW Opp FDR GW Opp FDR
27 NOR (H) 2 30 WHU (A) 2
28 TOT (A) 4 31 BOU (H) 2
29 BHA (H) 2 32 AVL (A) 2

Saiss can profit from that run of opponents and deliver points at both ends of the pitch.
