Matt Doherty Player Profile

Doherty has produced three goals and four assists over his 21 Gameweek starts.

And with five clean sheets and nine bonus points, he is the seventh-top scoring defender on 89 FPL points.

The Irishman's underlying statistics highlight his potential in Fantasy.

Doherty's totals of 28 shots and 26 chances created both rank among the top three defenders in FPL.

His upcoming schedule suggests that he can also continue to deliver points for his 23.9 per cent ownership.

After their Gameweek 22 trip to Manchester City has passed, all seven of Wolves' next opponents score no more than three in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

24 WHU (A) 3 28 HUD (A) 2
25 EVE (H) 3 29 CAR (H) 2
26 NEW (H) 2      

Doherty's ability to produce attacking and defensive returns can make him a key figure in defence during that period.
