Early FPL targets for the 2022/23 fixtures

The Scout assesses the sides with the most favourable opening schedules in 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves' wing-backs could prove a handy source of value for managers in Fantasy in the early rounds of fixtures.

Bruno Lage’s side kept 11 clean sheets in 2021/22, a total bettered by only six other sides.

And they can quickly attract the attention of managers in Fantasy this season.

Wolves face just one of last term’s top six in their first six fixtures, visiting Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 3.


After missing most of 2021/22 due to injury, the Spaniard was quick to secure the role as right wing-back in Wolves’ first campaign under Lage.

Jonny scored twice in 10 starts, also collecting two clean sheets and two bonus points.

His all-round style of play can profit from Wolves’ schedule, which includes meetings with promoted pair Fulham and AFC Bournemouth in their first five matches. 

Rayan Ait-Nouri

The Frenchman’s displays at Molineux suggest he could be a strong rotation option in defence for Fantasy managers.

Ait-Nouri averaged 4.7 points per match (ppm) at home in 2021/22, compared with 2.6 ppm on the road. 

Indeed, all of his attacking returns last season, one goal and four assists, were recorded in home contests.

Encouragingly for Ait-Nouri, Wolves entertain Fulham, Newcastle United and Southampton in the first six Gameweeks.

Pedro Neto

Another to have missed most of last season through injury, Neto can emerge as a key figure for Wolves this term.

Neto scored five goals and supplied eight assists in his last full campaign in Fantasy in 2020/21.

His all-round influence that season is reinforced by the statistics. Neto's 21 shots on target and 61 chances created were both team-leading totals.

Neto is expected to cost no more than £6.5m at the start of 2022/23, lifting his potential as a mid-price source of points in midfield.
