Wolves’ good form in the Premier League this season should be making fantasy football managers sit up and take notice.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have given a good account of themselves upon their return to the top flight.
We all thought the abundance of midfield and attacking talent would steal the show at Molineux, however the real impression has been made at the back-end of the pitch.
Wolves defenders have very much been the standout force in their impressive campaign so far.
A back-line, which boasted little Premier League experience before this season, has excelled and racked up the points in Dream Team to show for it.
The defence at Molineux has been marshalled by four ever-presents who are all going under the radar in fantasy football.
Matt Doherty is arguably the most in-form of the bunch having picked up 10 points in Game Week 7.
The right-back, who is available for just £1.8m in Dream Team, has 34 points this season.
Doherty already has two assists and has shown his consistency by picking up five 7+ratings across the seven Game Weeks.
He’s only been snapped up by 1.3% of managers. So what are you waiting for?
The centre-back position has been impeccably protected by Willy Boly. He’s very much an unstoppable force.
The Frenchman has been one of Espirito Santo’s most consistent performers and has shone in Dream Team.
Boly has 35 points to his name already this season and will only set you back £3m – a relative steal considering his point-tally.
The powerful defender is, like Doherty, going somewhat under the radar in Dream Team.
Only 1.3% of managers have Boly in their team. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Alongside Boly, Ryan Bennett has also been impressing at the back this season.
The 28-year-old, who has been picked by just 0.5% of managers, has scored 32 points in Dream Team this season.
The former Norwich man actually has more points than Spurs’ Kieran Trippier and Chelsea’s David Luiz. Illustrious company.
Bennett has a modest price-tag of just £1.7m in Dream Team. If you’re looking for a cheap, ever-present who does the business, then he’s your man.
The glue that has held Espirito Santo’s defence together is skipper Conor Coady.
The former Liverpool youth prospect has featured in all nine of Wolves’ games so far, highlighting just how valuable he is to the side.
The versatile defender has a respectable 28 points to his name and is a steal at just £2.2m.
Coady has only been snapped up by 0.5% of Dream Team managers, despite being a consistent point-scorer.
The Portuguese stars sprinkled throughout the side might well be the match-winners at Molineux this season.
A rock-solid defence however will be equally as important to Wolves, and could well be the difference if you are going to own your mates in Dream Team.
If you’re keen to save a pound or two on your defenders, look no further than the back-four of Wolves.
You heard it here first.
