Player Review

Ollie Watkins is a center forward for Brentford. Watkins scored a very impressive 26 goals in 49 games for Brentford in the 2019-2020 Championship season. Watkins remained fit all season and played a huge total of 4,430 minutes for Brentford and due to also playing in the play-offs, Watkins played more minutes than any other outfield player. Watkins is very dangerous in the box because he has strong attacking awareness and instincts. Watkins is also a strong finisher and is strong at improvising to ensure he can score. Watkins often uses his strong jumping ability combined with strong heading accuracy to score headers. Off the ball, Watkins is also fairly strong making 1.5 key passes per game and 25 passes. Overall, Watkins' strengths lie in his finishing, shooting (Averaging 2.7 shots per game) and heading (winning 2.3 aerial duels per game). However, unless he scores often in the Premier League, he may struggle to hit particularly high PB scores due to his lack of general involvement in games.

Price Analysis

Ollie Watkins' price started the season at £0.63. Due to having a strong season for Brentford and the transfer links that have since followed, Watkins' price has increased considerably this season. Watkins has developed considerably in recent seasons, but at the age of 24 there are arguably better forwards already playing in PB leagues at lower prices. Watkins currently has a market price of £1.71 and his price is very much built up on the expectation that he will be playing in the Premier League next season. However, if he does move to the Premier League and fails to score regularly then his price is likely to fall. Overall, Watkins has a lot of potential to be a strong goalscorer in the Premier League and he also has an outside chance of earning an England call-up longer term. However, as he may struggle to hit high PB scores in the Premier League and has already increased so much - he may not be a particularly strong longer term hold.
