GW8 Kings to watch: Hwang Hee-chan

The Scout 12 Oct 2021

The Scout on why Wolves forward has schedule to reward new backers with major value in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 8 of 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Hwang Hee-chan (WOL) £5.6m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward has been a top target in Fantasy over the international break.

Hwang is the most-bought player in his position for Gameweek 8, earning over 196,000 new owners for Wolves’ visit to Aston Villa.


He has offered strong value in Fantasy since arriving at Molineux at the end of the summer transfer window. 

The South Korean has three goals in his four outings, netting against Watford in Gameweek 4 and scoring twice against Newcastle United in Gameweek 7. 

Hwang's winning goal v Newcastle


Hwang fares well when compared with Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m), the most popular forward in the game with a 45.7 per cent ownership. 

Indeed, he has outscored the Manchester United star by 24 points to 22 since they both made their season debuts in Gameweek 4.

After featuring as a substitute in his first two appearances for Wolves, Hwang now appears to have secured a regular role. 

He has started each of the last two Gameweeks on the left of their front three.

Attacking threat

The underlying numbers further highlight Hwang’s goal threat.

His five shots in the box and three shots on target are both team-leading totals in the last four Gameweeks. 

Wolves’ upcoming schedule looks very encouraging for their key attackers.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only one of their next seven matches scores more than three.

9 LEE (A) 3 13 NOR (A) 2
10 EVE (H) 3 14 BUR (H) 2
11 CRY (A) 2 15 LIV (H) 5

Starting with this weekend’s West Midlands derby at Villa Park, Hwang can reward his growing ownership as a standout source of value in Fantasy.
