Best Bournemouth picks in FPL

We take a look at the best Bournemouth picks in FPL. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area, we utilise its fixture ticker and underlying stats to determine which Bournemouth players FPL managers should be targeting.

Looking at the best Bournemouth picks in FPL could be really beneficial to FPL managers as we approach an exciting double Gameweek. Overviewing both their defensive and offensive options and finding out which players are worth selecting.

Fixtures

We can see from the fixture ticker below that Bournemouth have better fixtures than any other team in the league until the end of the campaign. We can also see that Bournemouth have a double in Gameweek 29. This could mean it may be beneficial to invest in their players.

The Bournemouth attack

Amongst all teams in the league this season Bournemouth rank amongst the worst seven teams for goals scored (25). The Cherries also rank the worst in the league for attempts on goal (227), second worst for shots in the box (227), the worst for big chances total (31), the worst for minutes per chance (11.4) and the worst for shots on target (81).

More recently in the last six Gameweeks amongst all teams Bournemouth rank joint third worst for goals scored (six), second worst for attempts on goal (48), fourth worst for shots in the box (39) and joint third worst for shots on target (16).

The best Bournemouth attackers

The standout option in the Bournemouth attack is Dominic Solanke (£5.5m). The striker ranks above his offensive teammates for non-penalty expected goal involvement this season (5.96) and edges them in the last six Gameweeks in the same data point (2.16). Solanke is also the focal point to the attack and takes his sides penalties.

Another option could be Philip Billing (£5.2m) who ranks second behind his teammate Solanke for non-penalty expected goal involvement this season (4.29). The midfielder has banked two 10-point hauls in his last three Premier League matches.

Those looking for another attacking asset could opt for Dango Ouattara (£5m). Playing on the wing he ranks second amongst his offensive teammates for non-penalty expected goal involvement in the last six Gameweeks (1.99).

The Bournemouth defence

This season amongst all teams Bournemouth rank the worst for goals conceded (54), the worst for shots in the box conceded (299), the worst for for shots on target conceded (145), the worst for headed attempts conceded (86) and the worst for attempts from set plays conceded (137).

More recently in the last six Gameweeks amongst all teams Bournemouth rank joint third worst for goals conceded (11), the worst for shots in the box conceded (79), the worst for shots on target conceded (39), and the second worst for headed attempts conceded (19), set play attempts conceded (36) and big chances total conceded (17).

Both their season data and last six Gameweeks data indicates that avoiding the Bournemouth defence may be beneficial.

The best Bournemouth defensive assets

Taking into account the fact Bournemouth’s defenders lack offensive threat, managers could be better off investing in their goalkeeper Neto (£4.5m). For those still looking for a defender nailed to the starting line-up they could select right-back Adam Smith (£4.3m) who ranks higher than all of his defensive teammates this season for non-penalty expected goal involvement this season (1.49) excluding rotation risk Jordan Zemura (£4.3m).


Should we bench boost in Gameweek 29 or is there a better opportunity to activate the chip? Find out in our article here.
