FPL Double Gameweek 30+ – head-to-head comparisons: Adama Traore vs Todd Cantwell
Both Norwich's Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) and Wolves' Adama Traore (£5.7m) were frustrating many owners prior to the enforced break with Cantwell having not registered an attacking return in his last eight Premier League appearances and Traore blanking in his last five. In Traore's case though, his minutes were being carefully managed in the run-up to the break as he was dealing with a troublesome shoulder injury and that was undoubtedly impacting his potential for FPL returns. The three-month Premier League hiatus is expected to have allowed the Spaniard to fully recover though, and he should be raring to go ahead of Gameweek 30+.
Cantwell's diminishing returns have gone hand-in-hand with Norwich's struggles as a whole and his value has now dropped to £4.7m after reaching a high of £5.0m earlier in the season. At that price bracket, he remains a solid fifth midfielder option and Norwich's home fixture against Southampton in Gameweek 30+ is certainly something the Canaries can get something from, but the more aggressive play here is Traore. The speedy winger has a higher ceiling of points, plays for a superior team and will be by favoured by many FPL managers ahead of Wolves' trip to West Ham on Saturday.
Verdict: Adama Traore
