The success of the screened massive expansion is investigated in the framework of a screened momentum-subtraction scheme for the running of the strong coupling in pure Yang-Mills theory. By the exact Slavnov-Taylor and Nielsen identities, a very predictive and self-contained set of stationary conditions are derived for the optimization of the fixed-coupling expansion, yielding explicit analytical one-loop expressions for the propagators, the coupling and the beta function, from first principles. An excellent agreement is found with the lattice data. In the proposed screened renormalization scheme, a monotonic running coupling emerges which saturates in the IR at the finite IR stable fixed point g = 9.40 where the beta function crosses the zero. A simple analytical expression is derived for the leading behavior of the beta in the IR.
